Fun February Linkups!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hellooooooo!!! I wanted to share with you guys 2 lovely DAILY linkups I will be participating in for the month of February.. 

First off.. 

This linkup is where you post a new lipstick....wearing the lipstick .. for each day of the month. The idea is to get those lipsticks you have buried away in your vanity or this gives you a reason to go out and get a few new ones to share with everyone! I love this idea and I totally have 28 lipsticks to share! And I am pretty sure lipgloss counts too! I know this might sound like a little much but you can take the pictures all in one day if you want and schedule them. I think I will do a lot of them over the weekends and post them daily. If you want to participate you have to head over here...and leave a comment under the blog post and let her know you are participating.

Coffee Talk #20

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a good morning! Today I am linking back up for 

Here are today's questions..

When eating a taco, do you turn your head or do you turn the taco???


Of course I tilt my head!!! I am pretty sure you can't eat a taco without tilting your head to the side! BTW.. these Taco Bell Dorito tacos are freaking amazing.. My entire family and myself LOVE them! =)

Thursday Inspiration..


Hope you have a wonderful day. I might run some errands today but I also might stay home all day instead.. Who knows! Its desk day which means..

Its ok Thursday!!

Its Ok Thursdays

Happy Thursday Friends! 

Its ok..

That it just poured down yesterday. I always think of the rain as refreshing and relaxing. I slept off and on all day! 

Another Late Night


Gosh.. I am always up so late. No wonder I am so exhausted all the time. Scott and I stayed up late watching a couple tv shows and then we sat back for a movie. He just went to bed too so I know he is going to be grumpy tomorrow. And I am betting if I don't get to sleep soon, so will I. 

It was a wet and cold night around here. I thought the weather was going to be bad but during the day.. it was just windy with a little rain.. Then as evening set upon us, the rain and winds really set in. And the rain never stopped. Its still raining right now. Maybe it will be nice to go to sleep to. Thankfully we didn't loose power but I was prepared in case we did. 

I got a few videos done tonight that will be up tomorrow. And then Friday I will have another video up and I plan on doing a video of what's in my make up bag too! I love the videos because they are so much faster and easier than writing a long post! But blogging is my first love! =)

Not much went on around here tonight. I didn't even cook tonight which was nice. I was just tired and wasn't in the mood to be in the kitchen. Thankfully we had a ton of left overs to choose from and no one starved! 

Well I am going to snuggle up with my kitty cats.. and start dreaming! 

Hope you have a great Thursday!

Rainy Morning


Its already raining here today and for me that means ... going back to sleep for a few hours. I tossed and turned a lot last night and woke up extremely tired. I am happy that Jackson had himself dressed and ready this morning. So it was easy getting him off to school! 

And its going to be even easier dozing back off! Its always nice to fall asleep to the rain and that's what my plan is.

Busy Night..

Gosh.. I have had a busy late night. Something got into me after I took a bath and I came out and rearranged  the spare room! I mean totally rearranged it! I have all my makeup and stuff in here too. And more and more I find myself sleeping in here to escape the loud snores from my husby. We start out cuddling but he starts snoring and I have sleep issues so we just don't mix! 

It was a pretty good day.. nothing really eventful went on except I caught up with Courtney.. She's been busy and will be here Sunday for dinner! I haven't seen her in a while so I am totally excited to see her! =) Another one of my friends had a good night because she finally got a long awaited phone call. So all around with the friends → Good Night! ←. 

For dinner tonight we had 

Beef tips over egg noodles with baby peas and it was freaking amazing. So simple and everyone loved it... even my picky eater! Left overs might just have to be my lunch tomorrow. 

Speaking of tomorrow.. looks like we are having the same EXACT weather here in North Carolina as my family and friends in Indiana.. High winds.. lots of rain.. and possible tornados. Only in Indiana they are already on a 2 hour delay and here.. the kids are going to school as normal. So it should make for an interesting day. I have all the lanterns and candles out just in case.. I have my car charger for my car out just in case.. and I went outside about 11pm with Brandon and got all the loose stuff off the front and back porch. I don't want to find my plants and stuff in the neighbors yard.. And I even brought in our 2 rockers because I don't want them being destroyed by wind. So we are all ready for a wet day! 

Well its late.. I just took my sleep meds and its time for bed! Have a great Wednesday!

Starting my day... LATE!

Hello!! I hope you are all having a good day! I allowed myself to sleep for a while today. I was tired even though I did fall asleep around 3am. So I came home from taking Jackson to school and drifted back off to sleep. It would have been nicer if I didn't have some crazy dreams but I do feel a little better. I think I would sleep my life away if I allowed myself. 

Thankfully today is a going to be pretty simple. I just have a few things to do around the house and get dinner ready. See.. not much going on at all. Brandon is home and he's being as quiet as a mouse. I can hear him playing a video game but I hardly ever notice him because hes such a quiet guy. I tell him all the time if he is going to fit in around here.. he's got to speak up more! 

Well I hope you have a great day! I'll be back soon. Time for a coffee refill!

Rest and Relaxation..


Well it might be 1am but I have been in bed for a while. I am going to try to get my ass to sleep in the next 30 minutes or so.. wish me luck! I was laying in the bed with Scott but he started snoring like a bear so if I have any hope of going to sleep in a few minutes, I had to move to the spare bedroom.

A-Z About Me

I have seen this fun link up all over the blogs lately and I thought it would be fun to join up and answer! 

Here's my answers! 

Monday Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

I am so behind on movie reviews..but tonight I would like to take a few minutes to talk to you about Zero Dark Thirty. I am sure many of you have heard of this movie.. who hasn't right?

Just in case you haven't.. here is what the movie is about..

For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history's greatest manhunt for the world's most dangerous man. -- (C) Official Site

Monday Food Shopping - Video! -

Hello!!! I hope you are having a good Monday. I got up and got out to do some shopping since the weather was pretty good. 

Running Late - Kind of Morning =/


OMG.. I was totally running late this morning. Scott came in around 7am and told me he was leaving. He told me he wasn't feeling good .. gave me a kiss and back to sleep I went. I thought I had at least another 20 minutes to sleep. Well at 8am, Jackson walks into my bedroom and said.. 

" Mom, do you plan on getting up and taking me to school today? " 

I jumped out of the bed at rapid speed when I realized how late I was. 

I jumped in the car and sped off to the school only to realize I forgot to give Jackson lunch money. SHIT! I think he will be ok today.. otherwise I would just have came home... got it.. and took it back to school. 

Wow.. I need to get my shit together and start going to bed at a better time. I hate mornings like this. If Jackson would not have got me up.. I would have slept right on through because apparently I hit snooze so many times. I have no idea.. I just know I hate waking up late. It was days like this when I would totally skip school. I hate waking up late and trying to start my day like nothing happened at all. It just messes me all up. 

I am not going to lie. Since my butt went to sleep sooooooo late.. I think I am going to doze back off for a while. I know it won't help with me getting to bed tonight but it isn't going to help if I am a zombie today either. I just wish husby was home today being he isn't feeling good. I feel sorry he's having to work when sick. Who likes to do that? 

I still need to go to the market today. Which also means I will hopefully get a food haul up later today too! I have a bunch of end of the month videos coming up soon! I will be super happy to get the free samples post done so I can start using some of the great samples! So lots coming up..

Guess I am going to try to set my alarm again.. this should be fun! 

Have a great Monday!

Well another weekend has came and passed... to fast if you ask me. I was hoping for a better weekend than I got. The kids drove me crazy this weekend. I had issues with both Brittany and Jackson.. which totally took the air out of me. Brittany thinks not going to college and being a Jersey Shore Girl instead would be a better choice.. OMG.. And Jackson thought being a punk to Scott tonight would be the right thing to do. Needless to say.. both kids had a stern talking to tonight. 

Sunday Social!

Sunday Social

Happy Sunday! Time for another Sunday Social! 

What is your ideal way to relax:


A long hot bath.. FOR SURE.



Well I am feeling a bit better today but boy... my husband and son have been so noisy. I got up and yelled a few times but boy.. I was QUEEN GRUMP for a while this morning. I kept getting woke up.. then I would get up.. open the door.. SCREEEEAM...and go back to sleep. BUT.. I am thankful for all of husbys help.. He was cleaning out the frig.. broke the light bulb and got shocked. He said he went flying across the kitchen. HA! I bet that didn't feel too good.. but he got his finger all bandaged up.. Its a bad cut and he probably should have went to the hospital but he didn't. 

Instead he went bowling with the boys. They wanted to go do something and Scott can use his left hand or he will sit out and let them play. Its good because Jackson really wanted to get out. 

- Since I have been writing this post...I have received 6 phone calls.. Wow.. busy Sunday! - 

I did just talk to my grandmother. Its so hard knowing that she is not in good shape and far away. I wish I could see her more. =( 

Well its after 3pm.. I think I should go on get my ass dressed and get a few things done while I am feeling a little bit better. For some reason I always feel better during the day and at night, I feel terrible. WTF? 

I am also going to get answering comments and emails in just a little bit. Sorry for being behind.. I read every one of them and love hearing from each and everyone of you! 

Have a great Sunday!

Weekend He Said.. She Said Linkup!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Hello everyone. While I lay sick on the couch I figured I would put out another fun He Said.. She Said Linkup.  These are always so much fun! It's kinda like the Honeymoon Game! ♥

Saturday Inspiration..

Hope you are having a great day! Its been a really lazy one around here. I slept pretty good and woke up feeling a little better. I wasn't in a hurry to do anything. Then the one of our friends show up and hang out for a while. Next up was cuddle time with Jackson and since then nothing has happened. Pretty easy Saturday! I am really needing to get motivated and try to clean up the house some before husby gets home. My chest is hurting today from being sick. Again..I don't have the typical flu. I probably got some strange strain that will last forever. which would be just my luck. Thankfully during the day I feel a little better but once night comes, I start feeling awful again. Why is that? IDK..

I am trying to get some reviews finished that should be up over the next couple of days.  I just started using a product that I AM LOVING and I can't wait to show you what it is!!! =))  I actually have a ton of products coming up for review. It takes a while to try things out and God knows I really went crazy with beauty products in January!!! But stay tuned for some great reviews.. And I have a huge free sample video coming up too for December and January.. lots of goodies! And last but not least.. I am participating in a huge giveaway for this

Kindle Fire

And that will start on the 30th!!! It will last till February 6th.. Super exciting!

I'll be back a little later!


K Jaggers



I don't what came over me but today I started feeling really sick again. From about 3pm on.. I was done. I closed the computer and just laid around feeling awful. I don't know why I get worse in the night. And so far this hasn't been like the average flu. I guess I got one of those strange strains or something. I just hope it passes soon. 

I did manage to get a big pot of potato soup made. It seemed like it took forever making it.. and when I took a bit it tasted awful. My family loved it but I guess it was just me not feeling good. However, I just had.. 

another bowl and it tasted much better. I am hoping tomorrow I feel better. Its been weird.. one day I am feeling fine the next I feel like death. So who knows what the weekend holds. I was really wanting to get Jackson out of the house but if I am still feeling this way.. there is no way in hell that will happen. 

I was hoping to get a few other posts up today but when you are not feeling good.. playing on the computer is the last thing you want to do. So on that note.. I am going back to bed. 

Talk to you tomorrow..

Dear Kitchen, I swear if the boys mess you up today..I am going to scream. Maybe I should leave a warning note.. No.. they should know better anyway! Dear Jackson, you looked so freaking cute going to school yesterday all dressed up for your Winter Ball. You make me so proud! Dear Angie, Now don't go letting your head blow all up. I would never make a blog just for a cracktastrophe. I'm not sure you know that word is.. so lets use cracken instead.. That's my new nickname for you!! Cracken..

Friday = Happy Little Boy!


Boy, little Jackson is one happy little guy this morning! No School due to the weather. Well he actually had school from 8 - 930 but what's the point in that? Go to school for an hr and a half. Once I realized that I broke the news to Jackson that we are not getting cleaned up and heading out in this weather for less than 2 hours. Needless to say... he's sure happy that he is not going. Brandon however looked a little disappointed that he is grown up now and Snow days are over for him. I felt bad that he had to get out in this weather but unless his work says different.. he needs to be there. They sprayed all the roads last night.. so I think going he will be fine.. coming home might be a different story. I should go to the store but we have plenty around here right now and I might try to go out this afternoon. Again.. we might just live with what's in the house because its just too damn cold outside. 

So if you are out and about today. be safe and make sure you have supplies in your cars to make sure you will stay warm if something happens. You can never be too safe or too prepared. I on the other hand am going to get a refill on my coffee and then come right back to my warm bed for a while! =)

Have a great Friday!

Fill in the ______ Friday Linkup!

Happy Friday Friends! I hope you are having a great Morning! 

Here are todays questions.. Answer for yourself and link up! 

1. When I hear there is a winter storm on the way, I stock up Kerosene for the heater, sugar, bread, milk, and flour.. along with some candles  because you never really know what will happen and its best to be prepared! 

2. In the winter my car stays in the garage because I totally suck driving on icy roads. If I drive, I will end up in ditches all over town! 

3. My favorite winter clothing items are a winter coat for one.. Fuzzy warm socks.. and lots of comfy sweats! 

4. The snow makes me think of winters with my brother. We would play so hard in the snow that I can't really remember being cold.  God.. I miss being young and free. 

5. The one winter item I can't live without is 


I can't just pick one.. It would have to be gloves and coffee both! 

Ok.. Now answer this for yourself and linkup below! Hope you are having a safe and warm Friday!

Helloooo lovely friends! I hope you had a good Thursday. I have to admit.. around here, with husby home all day.. it was rather a sleepy lazy kind of day. Shit.. Scott and I slept on and off until after 2pm. I liked it.. but I did have a little guilt about all the things that I should have been doing. But I did get a little more active as night approached.. which is THE WAY IT ALWAYS WORKS FOR ME.
