My weekend–I lost my kid…

Good evening readers,

I wanted to let you know how my weekend went.  

My husband Vic had off Friday and the weekend from his current job but had military drill Sat & Sun; which kind of put a wrench in our mix. Nevertheless we took as much time as we could together as a family.  

Saturday was an exciting day. Vic went to drill and came home around 4:30, 5 PM. Emily and I played games and went food shopping together. On the way to the grocery store we played the left/right game. She tells me which way to turn until I get to our destination. Normally she’s pretty good at telling me how to get to places but when she starts to giggle and gives me the wrong turn signals–I make the appropriate steps to get back to where we were.

Guess how many times we watched the movie FROZEN? 1 Time! Believe me, this is a good thing. After taking a nap for about three hours we got ready to attend my nieces sixth birthday bowling party.

When we got to the Bowling Alley, Vic drop us off at the front entrance and he went to park car in the back of the building (super sweet).

The bowling alley was packed with different types of leagues. People were rolling around luggage’s; which I’m sure were filled with bowling balls, bowling shoes and everything else you need to get a turkey. We were at lane 1 and needed to get to lane 25. We finally made it and got Emily ready to bowl. She looked so cute with her bowling shoes!! Daddy was helping her bowl while I mingled with family and friends of the birthday girl. Everything was going pretty smoothly, when out of no where a woman that works at this bowling alley gets on the intercom to tell the leaguers they need to start paying attention to the rules. I didn’t think anything of it until she gets back on and starts yelling at the bowlers and said “If you leagues don’t want to listen and follow our bowling rules, this organization will reimburse your money and you can get the HELL out!” (WOW!) She then came on to say that she apologized to the parents that had kids present that she used the H-E-L-L word….but immediately stated “I’m sure you all have already said it. …………………….. Um–no! My kid Emily is 2 and has never said that word. I was furious!! Vic went to the person to give her a piece of mind, just then my kid goes MISSING! My mom asked me if she knew where Emily was, I said she was with Vic. I see Vic and no Emily next to him and I then race to the front desk ONLY TO SEE EMILY looking at a silent auction table. Did I forget to mention this place was packed? Like sardines in a can….or like matches in a matchbox. My heart dropped when I saw she was ok. I didn’t lose my cool, but made it a point to tell Vic he needed to be more aware of her. My mom then gave me a piece of her mind. It felt like I was being scolded in public….oh wait…I WAS! After the party was over, we left and went immediately home. Emily was given a bath and she went to bed. Vic and I fell asleep soon there after. Lets just say we were all emotionally pooped out.

Sunday–Vic went to drill again and Em and I spent the day mainly outdoors. Below is a picture of me walking my 4 month old dog, Chase and the back of Em’s stroller.

We played in our back yard for the remainder of the day…and had naps in between. Vic came home and around 5pm, Em was struck with a low grade fever and fell asleep until 8pm. Once she got up, she stayed up until midnight,–but had no more fever 🙂 Thank God, right!

Well I hope you enjoyed my weekend…stay tuned for more stories.

Today when you get to work and are all drained from all of your weekend responsibilities….think of this post. I always say it’s all about the attitude. If you are going to work with an attitude, you will spread that negativity. Why not have fun at work, and make it an enjoyable place to be in for 8-10 hrs of your day. Remember you are the owner of your day…if you don’t like it….change it!

1.30.15 Frosty VoxBox (Influenster)

influenster

Good evening readers,

Have you guys heard of a company called influenster? It’s a company where you take surveys and depending on the survey lifestyle you take; you are mailed products to test and review on their website (and yours). It’s a great way to get free products as long as they are being used and ultimately reviewed.

I received a frosty vox box to review for all of your readers. It had a lot of good products which I will review below.

fruit_vines_png_250x250_q85_cropLet’s start off with the grapevines strawberry flavored gummies. Their flavor was so enriched that as I type this blog, I contemplate buying myself another bag. You can get them in other flavors but I stuck to the strawberry flavor. They are designed to look like a juiced up Twizzlers. The texture was a lot smoother than a Twizzler and also smaller in length. Overall a great snack to share amongst friends and family. The bag was gone in less than 10 mins in my household. Yes, they are addicting!!! I give it two thumbs up on this.

ecotools_tiff_250x250_q85_cropThe next item I’m going to review is the ego tool hairbrush. On the label it stated that it’s great for people who wear multiple types of hairstyles and hair textures and that it was a non-static brush. With that great entrance, you would think it’s a great brush right? I initially tried it as my first item out of the box and instantly my hair got very staticy. I thought it was just a fluke, so I brushed my daughters hair and the same thing occurred. Presentation wise, it’s a great-looking brush but for what I’m looking for, its not the type of brush I want to use daily. Would I recommend it to somebody? No. I give this two thumbs down.

It said it was waterproof, and believe me it is! I am not big on the normal pencil eyeliners as I love to use the liquid eyeliner’s. This one in particular, rolled on very smooth, very creamy, and a good shade of black. As I stated before it’s waterproof. Would I recommend this, absolutely! The only thing I would advise people is when you take it off to make sure you take it all off. I thought I had taken all of mine off and the next morning I woke up with raccoon eyes!! Overall, I give it two thumbs up!

One of my favorite items was the tea. It was a peppermint tea made for the holidays. It tasted like having a candy cane slice of heaven. Would I buy a box of it? Yes! It screamed at Christmas at me! And I am a huge Christmas fan. It’s great if you are going to share it amongst relatives and friends. I just may make that a holiday tradition… I give it to two thumbs up.

Boots_Badge_FINAL_png_250x250_q85_cropMy next item will be for all you anti-wrinkle lovers! It’s a Protect & Perfect serum N07. I used it for two weeks and you could absolutely see the improvements. I am not one to normally have a wrinkly face but anything you could do you at a young age to prevent future wrinkles is always a positive in my book. 🙂 The bottle is not that expensive–it ranges between $20 and $30; depending on size. A little goes a long way with this item; another positive for this product. I give this product to two thumbs up!

Blank_Badge_RNYhs6C_png_250x250_q85_cropDid you know that McCormick sells gourmet seasonings!? I got the chance to review and try one. I got a bottle of Thyme. I loved the sleek new look. The clear glass shows you the thyme and how much you use per serving. I instantly knew what I would be using this for. I made white rice with thyme, baked chicken with Parmesan cheese and thyme and to kick it off I made whipped mashed potatoes with a sprinkle of thyme. Not only did it come out tasting amazing, you would not even notice that I put an extra seasoning in the meal. Absolutely it two thumbs up!

25450132fa024d7a1a497eb90c6c65b19b0f5aa8_n0Mq84K_png_250x250_q85_cropMost women would cheer and jump up-and-down for free lipsticks, right? (WHY AM I NOT THAT WOMAN!) Unfortunately, I am not a big lipstick person. I received a sugar plum color NYC lipstick within my frosty vox box.  I tried it on which you can see on the right side of my page my Instagram picture of a pair lips. I was a little self-conscious about posting the picture and that’s why I blew up my lips almost to an on recognizable size. The color wasn’t all that bad, I feel like the taste was the part I disliked the most. I’m a lip licker and I’m constantly licking my lips that the taste made me want to take it off right away. I tried to keep it on as long as I could and even gave it to my sister who has a YouTube make up channel (Onebeautyaddict) to try on. (Click on link) She did mention that it does stay on for over six hours; which is a decent product for the cost. Maybe the make up fanatic would give it a one or two thumbs up, but for me I’m giving up two thumbs down. #GetADVANCED!

2f00ba7f40e54470b002eb94d1288925f2d72404_J79Ug4M_png_250x250_q85_crop_vwia8Lu_png_250x250_q85_cropThe last thing that was given to me complementary to test out and review was the Rimmel London make up remover. This make up remover came without I remover pads so I instantly thought CRAP! How am I going to take off my make up? I quickly found out that you could you use just about anything; a paper towel, cotton balls, a washcloth, or even tissue paper. I did like the convenience of the bottle size, and the transparency of the bottle to see when it would be time to open a new one. The make up remover worked rather well. You did not have to over scrub your eyes to remove the make up. It did not leave your face feeling oily either…good thing for me because I’m seriously oily. I will stick to my already lathered pads, but wouldn’t mind using this alternative. Overall, two thumbs up.

“I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”
