Boring ol' Sunday!!

Sunday, May 31, 2009

Its a boring ol' Sunday here at our house!! I'm playing here on the computer, hubby is watching crappy movies!! And it is such an AWESOME day to be out doing something, other than being stuck indoors! We could be riding the bike, enjoying that, yeah, I'm a little crabby today!

We went fishing yesterday evening with friends, whoo-hoo!! can you feel the sarcasum in the air!!?? couldn't go to a river, or something like that, had to go to a pay lake, where it just so happened half of the county was already there! yeah!! memories!! and we couldn't go during the day, so I could work on my tan, we had to go at 7 in the evening, supposely fish bite better at nite, I think they do much better in the daytime! you know, that way you can actually see the fish "nibbling"on you line. I was going to take the camera, but what was the point--its dark, and even though I have night time flash, it still sucks. The best part we get home at 4 am! not fun!!

Okay, so the "birthday sale" starts tomarrow, remember to you the code "birthday" in order to recieve 20% off, and that goes the entire month of June!

So how do I feel about turning 39 tomarrow?? I feel GREAT!, I have the day off, which means I'll be home alone, peace and quiet, can actually clean, without disturbing someone on the couch who is sleeping, watching tv, or whatever!! Its actually Thursday that I'm regretting, I start a 5 day stretch of 12 hour shift! FUN FOR ME!! I picked the extra hours up, cuz hubby hasn't been working since we got back from Bike week, and of course, now that I have 10, yes I said 10 days of 12 hour shifts in 2 weeks starting with this new pay period which happens to start tomarrow, he has work lined up! The upside, this check, after doing all these 12 hour shifts, should be awesome! I normally only work, 4-7 days per pay, and 7 being if I picked up hours, I am considered part-time, which means I'm only guaranteed, 4 days a pay.

Oh well, I have nothing elase to bitch or complain about for now, but its still early, who know I may be back!!

See Ya!!


Saturday, May 23, 2009

Hey there everyone!! Yeah, I know it s late!! It will be alright, this will just be something you can read with your first cup of coffee, or tea, or diet coke in the morning!

Well, I was right, about yesterday, there was no way, I was getting on the computer after working yesterday!! The nursing home about kicked my butt, yesterday was my first day back since like May 6 or 7th!! I was ready to go back, until.........the residents and staff decided to be looney!! I'm not sure if there was a full moon or not (and yes, in nursing homes it does affect them!!) they were ALL NUTS!!

Needless to say, supper last night was a frozen pizza!!, and as I was watching Dateline on NBC, I fell asleep in the chair!

Vacation was nice, until mother nature decided to make her presence known, she always seem to have the worse timing!!

And if you had a chance to look at the vacation photos, first off, we were not drinking ALL the time, my husband talked to his mom the other day, and she basically asked if we were drunk our enire vacation!! In all honesty, I would have loved to stayed comfortably numb, but being in the nursing profession, I know that motrin and alcohol, is not a good combo. And anyways, my bil and I were very good when it came to drinking, my sil & hubby, well, they are the wino's!! lol.
And I only say that, because we did go to 2 winery's, and they participated and bought wine!! I personally cannot stand the taste of wine, or champange. Give me an ice cold bottle of Miller Lite, or a strawberry margarita, or strawberry daquiri, or a dozen or more jello shots (any flavor) and I'm good!!

There are a lot of exciting things to about to happen to me, and I will announce them, when the timing is right, no i'm not pregnant!! You'll just have to keep reading the blog, and find out!

Okay ya all, so don't forget, my sale starts June 1st (in honor of my 39th birthday) and will last until June 30th, the code to take advanantage of that sale is "birthday", when you use that code, you'll recieve 20% off! So keep waiting for that, it's just around the corner!!

Well, I'm going to sign off for tonite, and I'll be back sometime tomarrow!!

See Ya!


May Reviews for Out of The Box Sampler

1. Heartstrings Scrapbook- I recieved a scrapbook page kit, very nice, I have never scrapbooked in my life, but I am sure I can learn. If you are a scrapbooker, maybe you can find something on her website,

2. Scrumpdillyumptious- I recieved 2 cookies, snickerdoodle and brazilian coffee, and an ol' south praline. Which were all very tasty!! (I opened them after hubby left the house!) and a 10% off coupon. To try some of these goodies,

5.Ugly Duckling Designs- Okay I am a little partial to this company, she is also the owner of Out of The Box Sampler, and she has a lot of amazing things on her site.

Oh and a coupon for BOGO on all 1oz popable tarts!!Thanks Michelle...

Starstruck Cat Design- I recieved a tin soy candle in gingeroot & white tea, it smells wonderful I noticed on the warning label on the bottom that it is handpoured in Indianapolis, Indiana, which is somewhat close to where I grew up!! and I also recieved a 10% off coupon of products totaling $15 or more!

Well, there you have it, my reviews!! Please go and visit these etailers, don't waste your time going to the mall, visit these guys, they will treat ya right, and you would probably be getting a better product than you would at the mall!!

On a different note, I am back in the box for June, I took May off because of vacation, and when you recieve your items from me there will be a 20% off coupon, just use the code "birthday" my sale starts June 1 (my birthday) and ends June 30th. You don't have to get the box to take advantage of the sale, that's why I just told you about here!! What better way to celebrate my 39th birthday, than to have a sale that last the entire month!!

Well, thats it for now, I am officially caught up from being gone, I think!!?? I will try to post tomarrow, but don't count on it, 1st day back to work, I may come home and go to bed, providing I don't have to cook!! lol



Vacation Pictures


Vacation Pictures

Well, we made it there and back safely!! Getting away was just what I needed. So, here are a few pictures from our vacation, I used animoto, to do our vacation pictures, with a little music from Tom Petty. Hope you all enjoy, and I will get my Out of The Box Sampler Reviews put up in just a couple of hours!!


So Frustrated!

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Yes, you read the title right, I am soooooo frustrated!! I was so pleased with my new purchase of wax I recently bought, the tarts look good, I was pleased with the nice finish on it, until........ I tested it with votives!! I still had to put them in the freezer, which was no big deal, but once they came out, and I got to looking, every one of those votives were cracked!!

Needless to say, I will be using my palm wax, until I find another solution. I'll keep trying new waxes. until I have the look I want. But it is darn aggravating. Yep..... VACATION cannot come soon enough!! I wish we were leaving today rather than Friday!!

I ordered my Box from Out Of the box Sampler, did you get yours?? I communicated with Michelle a few hours ago, and there weren't very many boxes left.... So I hope you were all able to order one. You won't be disappointed!! Though, my box may not be going on vacation with me, which means all my reviews will have to wait, the plan was to take it with me, and do my reviews while on vacation, the first couple of days it is calling for rain, so that would be a perfect time....oh well!!

Looking forward to being back in the box next month, and hopefully being able to send in jar samples this time instead of tarts. we'll see though.. Never know what you'll end up with!!

Well I have a few errands to run before I forget about them, so I'll chat at you later!!



Just A Reminder!!

Monday, May 4, 2009

Hey everyone!! Getting ready to go to bed, my last day of work, until I start vacation on Friday!! whoo-hoo!! I'm sooooooooo ready!!

Just checked my email, and I had posted in my last post, the the Out Of The Box Sampler goes on sale the 6th, well it is going on sale TOMARROW!!! I myslef had to email Michelle myself asking her to bill my credit card, because I have to be at work tomarrow, and I'm afraid that by the time I get off work, they'll be sold out! Thats my kind of luck!!

Well, I have been busy filling orders today, I have all of them done, and ready to ship out before I leave, and I have some that I have to deliver to the girls at work. They have been really great to make sure my days off are not to relaxing!! I'll take it!! lol

Okay, so head on over to the Out Of the Box Sampler button on my right, and click on that in order to get your box, before they are all sold out!!

And, if I get lucky enough to get mine by Friday, that bad boy is going to Myrtle Beach with me!! I feel so strange not contributing to the box this month, but I'll be back in it for June!! Watch for my reviews, when I get back from vacation, which will be 17-18!!

I'll try to write on Wednesday!



Been Away

Friday, May 1, 2009

Okay, yeah, I know I have been away from the computer lately, and haven't been posting, but I have had some computer issues since my last post!! I hate, not knowing how I can screw up a computer so easily. But I'm back for a few days, cuz ya all know, I'll be leaving Friday, May 8th, for warmer, sunny weather!! Yep!! I'll be in Myrtle Beach as of Saturday May 9th!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

I am in need of a vacation!! I have been waiting soooooo long, I was in need of a vacation after we returned from Florida in October!! I need to clear my head, I need to do a lot of soul-searching, for what exactly who knows, and who cares, the Beach is calling my name!!

We will be there with my bil & sil, for Bike week!! The sound of Harley's, there is nothing more sweet!! and yes, our hotel is still in tact, and standing, as you may of heard of the wildfires in south carolina, yeah, around the barefoot resort area, that is where we actually stayed last year!! But my sil, called our hotel, which is the "sheraton plantation" and we are good!! Thank You Jesus!!!!

Well, I bought new wax, for my votives, tarts, pillars, and so on, so no more feather look for those items. At first, I was freaking out, cuz I couldn't get the darn things to pop out, and I had tarts to take to work for some orders I recieved, (I didn't have enough pillar to fill the orders) so I had to use the new wax, but, I put them in the freezer, for about 5 minutes, and they popped right out, I was actually sweatin for a few moments. And I like the look, and they seem to hold the scent, I had extra tarts from those orders, and popped 2 in my burner, that was like 5 days ago, and they still smell like I had them for an hour, so that is a very good sign.

Well, I have to work tomarrow, but I'll be off Sunday and Monday, then I work Tuesday, and then I'm done until I come back from vacation, it will be nice, it seems like since I went back to work in February, thats all I seem to do, and have time for, eat sleep, work!! The gals at the nursing home are keeping me hopping with orders, and thats okay, I'd rather make candles, than be at work ANYDAY!!! But, with things being slow, I have to work, some days, I wish it wasn't 12 hour shifts!

Well, enough for now, I think I have updated pretty much all I can at this point, Oh, I don't have pictures yet of the new look of the votives, tarts, etc. I keep forgetting to get batteries for the camera, which I have to get before next week!!

ALSO!!! I about forgot------- Out of the Box Sampler boxes go on sale, May 6th!! I am getting one again, I am totally addicted!!, hopefully, I can get it before the 8th, but that would really be asking alot of Michelle, but I'd love to have it to take on vaction, and show my sil, and have her help me do a review!! I know she would love it!!

Okay Gotta Go!!

See YA!!
