Bzz did it again

Are you a member of BzzAgent?? If not, sign up, like right now!! My mailbox is always full of awesome freebies and coupons, annnd bills but whatever. Last week I received my latest BzzAgent Campaign, which I was more than excited about....

This razor is AMAZING & I'm a picky girl when it comes to shaving. My skin is sensitive, dry & I have a hard time getting a close shave under my arms. The Shick Hydro Silk left me with no complaints. It left my skin so soft even with this crazy cold weather that normally dries them out & I had no problems with my underarms either.
The razor has this weird arch to it which took some getting used to, but now I don't even notice it. I also really like with it came with a little hook to hang in the shower.
Try it out & let me know what you think.

Love is in the air....

I don't normally do much decorating for Valentine's Day but this year decided to jazz it up a little! I found some free printables & made a cute wreath earlier this week. I discovered I HATE yarn, I tangle it non-stop but the end product is worth it. Not to mention this super cute wreath cost me a whopping $7.49 after tax!

I have this super cute FREE printable in my kitchen .... Check out designs by cp  She always has cute ideas!

This will be used all year long!! Me the hubby and the girls can all write little notes on it and move it around the house. I don't know about you but waking up to a love note from my hub makes my entire day!!
I saved this so long ago I don't have the link anymore but I have seen a lot of different version on Pinterest.

I also really lucked out finding a bag of Valentines goodies I got on sale last year!! I plan on getting the rest of that out this weekend and starting on C's school valentines <3

20 Things You Should Know About Me

I'm linking up with Travel Babbles for 20 Things You Should Know About Me

I am going to do 20 completely random things, everyone already knows that I love my family and all that jazz!

  1. I love to chop vegetables & sometimes pretend I'm on a cooking show while I do it.

  3. When I have split ends I pull them off, there are day where my desk is covered in hair.
  4. Even though I complain, I LOVE grocery shopping! It's my free time.
  5. I have depression/anxiety but hate taking medicine! There are days I feel like I have no control of my body & it SUCKS!
  6. Staying home always sounds fun but I love being a working mom.

Happy New Year, Blogger World!

2012 was a great year for my family ... okay not GREAT but what fun is a year with no bumps in the road?! We all made it through alive & happy, what more can ya ask for?!
I try not to make resolutions, my goal is to be better in some way than I was last year! Sure I'd love to be skinnier, stress free, have a filled saving account & get to church more buuuut lets get real!
2013 started with me filling out a kindergarten application for a local charter school, the only have so many slots and fill them with a lottery system so wish us luck! I didn't think I would be so emotional filling out that application, I mean it's like I'm a stay home mom who is going to have this gap to fill all day. But let me tell you I was a MESS!! I couldn't stop the tears that day & those that know me, know that I'm not a very emotional person. I think Sandy Hook may have really added to my anxiety about her going to a "real" school. I won't know if we got a spot until March & even if we get one C still has to do the early enrollment testing in May. My baby girl is growing up & damn it, I'm just not ready.
C had also been really pushing for TRIPLETS, yep you read that right TRIPLETS ... 2 sisters & 1 brother. In case that's not bad enough, both girls will be named Piggie & the boy Benjamin (which I actually really like). We have decided to try for baby #2 at some point this year, hopefully the kid isn't too disappointed that IT WILL NOT BE TRIPLETS (Dear God, please read that thoroughly. Thanks from the woman who wants to keep her sanity)!
We have also talked about job changes, moving and lots of other big things- looking forward to what this year has in store for my family :) Stay tuned .....

I also have will be back soon with my BzzAgent Reviews!!
