No Pain, No Gain! Right?!

I am really getting slack about blogging, but it is not intentional.  I am currently working full time, going to school full time (seems like double full time) and I recently started attending boot camp sessions with Michael Thomas @ www.columbiabootcamp.com.  I knew I was majorly out of shape...I gave myself too much credit! LOL The first week was difficult but as the sessions go by I can feel myself getting stronger and for that I am proud.  Some days I feel like I need a walker afterwards, but no pain no gain!  Whomever came up with that saying needs to be slapped (just kidding, but not really).

It is also graduation season and I am so happy that many of my friends and family are about to accomplish their goals of higher education.  For me, I have 3 classes left and I can't wait!  I can't wait to get back to my life of nothingness lol.  Seriously this schoolwork consumes so much of my time that I often wonder how I get it all done on time.  But it's all for a good cause --MO MONEY!!!
Shout out to my nephew Xavier who will be graduating from Eau Claire High School and my nephew James Jr. that will be graduating from the 8th grade! Auntie loves her babies!!

I hope that the pollen has not affected anyone too bad...It has been ok for me since we have been having so much rain.

I continue to pray for all families that have been affected by the insane weather we have been having lately.  I hope you all get the aid that you need soon.

Until next time...
Sending Chockl8Kiss
XOXOXOXO

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
