Cheers to 36 Years!

Hey friends!

My birthday was yesterday! All I wanted was a bunch of nothing. I got showered with love. I loved every minute of it! I am blessed beyond measure!

I didn't plan a party. I didn't plan a dinner. I didn't go out for drinks. I just wanted to be home and enjoy a rare day of nothing to do. I needed it!

I did however bake my birthday cake as usual. Nothing fancy this year. Just a chocolate cake with a chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. It was delicious. And as a note to myself, I have to remember to NOT try to use carton egg whites for the SMBC! It stayed flat and did not perform, so I had to start over. The cake was delicious and I remembered to eat a slice!

Going into 36 my only promise is to be kinder to myself. Practicing more self-love and to really start to take care of my body. I've been tripping. I'm still eating all of this free food though! LOL

And about that free is a listing of places that offered something free OR a discount. It's changed a bit since I originally posted birthday freebies. I won't use everything, but I'm trying to use as much as I can!

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

Renuzit Pearl Scents and a Giveaway!

Hey y'all! I've told you guys previously that I had placed my house on the market. My reasons for doing this are several. I live too far from my family. #1 makes it a little difficult to get help in a timely fashion. The house is entirely too big for just me and Boogie. I want to be closer to my family. That about sums it up LOL!  Have you ever tried to sell a house that you were living in WITH A TODDLER?! OMG it is seriously next to impossible! We literally will be taking a nap and someone will call and be 5 minutes away. Like really? So trying to keep everything clean and tidy has been driving me crazy. We spend a lot of time at my dad's house.  My issue with this? Sharing a bathroom. Nevermind not having enough space to store all of my random crap. The bathroom is the issue. My bathroom is the guest bathroom, that everyone that visits uses. Some of the visitors are less than tidy and some do things that they should only do at home! I was sent this l
