My First Cravebox

It's absolutely no secret that I love Birchbox, samples and getting packages in the mail.  There's just something thrilling about getting a little box of the unknown to open each month, like a little surprise party in my mailbox!  There's almost nothing better.  My husband's hugs edge out Birchbox in the Happiness category.  Even though I think Birchbox is amazing, I have to admit that I have been really disappointed and completely underwhelmed with a couple of my boxes.  I recently changed all of my preferences, but I am still a little skeptical about how amazing Birchbox will continue to be. 

I decided to branch out and see if there were any subscription box services that were better than Birchbox (don't hate me for thinking that there may be something better out there).  I decided to sign up for one month of My Glam Bag and Cravebox just to see if either of them can out-do my dearest Birchbox.  They're each $10/month, just like Birchbox, so you'd figure they should be equivalent in quality.  My Glam Bag is supposedly focused on makeup, while Cravebox is a mixture of beauty products, snacks and household items.  Both are intriguing, so I figured I'd give them a whirl.  I signed up for both waitlists and hoped I'd get the subscription soon.

I received a message recently saying that My Glam Bag will be coming next month.  Good deal.  Last week I received a message saying my Cravebox would be sent out shortly.  It ended up arriving today!!


I am a sucker for the full subscription box experience, so I get excited about pretty packaging, colorful inserts and festive fillers.  This box had it all.  It was just so cute and cheerful!

And here were the goodies...


(Clockwise, starting at top left)
Skintersection Intense Repair Cream for Cracked Skin, 2 fl oz
Guylian Belgian Chocolate Truffles, 6 ct, 2.29 oz.
Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub, Coconut Lime scent, 18 oz.
Lipton Tea & Honey Iced Green Tea Mix, Mango Pineapple scent, 0.13 oz.
Sunsweet Plum Amazins Diced Dried Plums, 2 1 oz. pkgs


I love the variety in this box!!!  It's food and body products.  What red-blooded girl would complain about that???  Let's talk first about the bath and body products.  
 

I'm loving that the cracked skin treatment is practically unscented and isn't greasy at all. That's got to be a first for cracked skin treatments, because my previous purchases of these left my skin feeling slick and oily for hours after use. No bueno.

And about that scrub... I was actually pretty shocked to see a full-size product in the box!  I've come to expect these boxes to have "deluxe samples", meaning anywhere from 1 to 3 uses, so to see a big tub of this scrub staring me in the face was a treat and a half!  It's also coconut lime scented, which I adore (it reminds me of Bath and Body Works' Coconut Lime Verbena).  It's like the bath product gods heard me lamenting about how much I hate my current Missha Kiwi Body Scrub (don't ever buy it), and they delivered me a sweet li'l alternative via Cravebox!  Oh happy day!

The food yummies are not to be forgotten.  I'm saving these chocolates for my cruise next week, and the plum snacks and drink mix will be going to my office tomorrow. 

Have you tried Cravebox or My Glam Bag yet?  What did you think about them?

Memorial Day Recap

Hey girlies!  I hope you've all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend!!

I've actually been looking forward to Memorial Day weekend for awhile because for once in what feels like a lifetime, we didn't have any big plans for this weekend.  It was actually a big relief to both Hubs and I, because we've been running ourselves ragged over the past couple of weeks.  Usually we have barbecues or trips to my parents' house, but this weekend:  nada.  We just needed a weekend to chill and catch our collective breath.  And boy, did we ever! 

Let me just apologize right here for not taking any pictures this weekend.  I normally take WAY too many, but this weekend we were in relaxation mode and the camera (and my iPhone) didn't make it out of my purse.  No business this weekend, even blog business.  Kind of a blogger fail, I know, but I had to keep this weekend as simple as possible.

Friday was my hubby's typical work night, so I did my normal payday routine and paid bills, balanced my checkbook and all of that other housekeeping ish. 

On Saturday, H worked, so I met up with my girlfriend Tracy for lunch at Datz in Tampa, where we met a really adorable gay server named Josh.  If you go there, ask to sit in his section!  He's too cute for words and totally hilarious.  Some of you may remember that I was at Datz TWICE last weekend.  It's a good thing I love this place, because ALL of my friends want to go there all the time!  I like it enough to keep coming back, so it's all good!

After lunch, I picked up a bunch of clothes that needed to have altered for my upcoming cruise, and I was dismayed to see that my alterations lady has significantly raised her prices.  Of course she didn't tell me that until she was holding my clothes hostage and I had no choice but to pay her the ransom.  Booo!

I then came home to weep in my Cheerios, and was consoled by the fact that we were heading out to see the Mummies exhitibt at the Museum of Science and Industry!  I double majored in Anthropology and Human Resources in college, so this archaeology stuff really gets me going.  I know I'm a geek, and it really doesn't bother me!  We met up with our friends Joe and Megan to see the exhibit, which was outstanding and showed a great variety of both natural and man-made mummies.  It could have been longer, though.  We were only in the exhibit for an hour, and I would have liked it to be at least another half an hour's worth of displays and content.  But overall, it was really cool.

After we finished up at the museum, we went to Friday's for drinks.  I drank some sangria, which was surprisingly good considering that it was coming from a Friday's!  We usually don't go to Friday's so we were happy to be pleasantly surprised.  The conversation was great, and Hubs and I headed home to our neck of the woods.  We caught dinner at Cheap, which was also fantastic, except for the $10 valet charge (and no that didn't include tip).  Ripoff.  But anywhere that I can have sushi, pizza and tapas in the same meal is alright by me!  Later in the evening, we got fro yo at Yogurtology to top off a day of yummy food gluttony.

We then hit up Redbox, where we got MI 4: Ghost Protocol (clearly hubby's pick) and Friends With Benefits (clearly my pick) for an unexpected movie night.  It was divine.  We watched our movies while drinking Angry Orchard hard cider and Mike's Strawberry Lemonade.  They were so good!  Even a beer drinker like me enjoys the fruity stuff from time to time.

On Sunday, we woke up and made breakfast burritos (they weren't as good as my brother in law's, but they were good enough to make again!) while we watched the DIY network.  We love day-dreaming about fixing up a future house and getting out of this condo!  We then spent the entire day running errands.  We stopped by Eats! American Grill for dinner and got another movie from Redbox, The Change-Up.  Can I tell you that I am SO glad to have move rated-R comedies?  I remember a time not so long ago that the rated-R comedies were pretty much non-existant, but thanks to Knocked Up and pretty much anything else by Judd Apatow, they're back in a big way.  Yay!!

Today, Monday, I dedicated my entire day to cleaning, laundry and house projects.  That's the beauty of a weekend free of obligations.  I can do things like spend an entire day cleaning and not feel the least bit guilty about it!  Usually I'd just feel like I was working on things that could be put off for a later time, and feel terrible that I was not with family or friends on a holiday.  After spending copious amounts of time hanging pictures, organizing my office, sweeping and steam mopping my floors, and going gangbusters on my bathrooms, I feel totally at peace.  All is right in the world when my bathrooms are squeaky clean.

I hope you've had as satisfying a weekend as I have! 

What did you to this weekend that made you a happy girl??

It's Ok - Pre-Memorial Day Edition

Hola chicas!  I'm ever so glad to be back into the swing of things after a couple of busy weeks.  These busy weeks have just drained the energy out of me!  The good news:  It's Thursday, I'm having a good hair day, and I'm going to a free screening of Snow White and the Huntsman tonight!  You know what else?  It's time to link up with Amber and Neely for It's Ok!!




It's Ok...

...to be sort of glad that we don't have any barbecue's to go to this weekend

...to be excited about packing for my cruise--only 10 days away!

...to absolutely not believe that it's been a year since Hubs and I got married (where has the time gone???)

...to be thankful for all of our past and current military personnel who keep us safe and protect our freedom

...to have finally discovered the joys of the Keurig coffee maker (and those delicious Kahlua k-cups!)

...to be tired of hockey playoffs now that Hubby's team is out of the running

...to squeal with delight when my coworker brought in his homemade bread today (it's like crack in the form of a carbohydrate)

...to get off to a rough start by messing up my morning cup of coffee (my sleepy fog led me to overpour the creamer and it totally ruined my caffeine fix)... there's always tomorrow!

...to realize that some friends would rather be jealous of you than be supportive

...to feel like the cleaning fairy has been MIA this week at my house, and actually look forward to a clean-a-thon this weekend

...to want a new pedicure (even though I just got one recently) because the coral color I've been eyeing has been occupying my thoughts hardcore

...to skip exercizing every night this week in favor of numerous season finale's on TV

...to wish the weather here in Florida would stay like this all year and not get any hotter

...to skip going out with my coworkers after work so I can have my diet meal in peace and not be peer pressured into eating southwest eggrolls

...to find an excuse to shop this weekend (I think I have some coupons that will expire next week!)

...to look forward to watching The Avengers even though it's not my typical favorite type of movie

...to love my little family and our quiet, unassuming life


What's Ok with you this week? 
I hope you have a great Thursday!!

I'm baaack!

Wow, I'm finally back from an impromptu blogging vacation, and I've missed it!!  I decided last week that I had a number of important matters to attend to and needed to focus my energy on those things, rather than blogging, shopping and obsessing over my diet and exercise regimine.  I'm so glad I did, but I've come out of the week with even more to-do's and a list of blog posts that I'm yearning to write.  Isn't that usually the way it goes? 

Here's a recap of a few highlights and comments from the last week...

  • The Philadelphia Flyers lost in the playoffs on May 8, and this was followed by days of mourning by my Hubs.  His hopes for a Stanley Cup were once again dashed, this time by the New Jersey Devils.
  • Hubs was offered a new job on Thursday, and we are elated!  The salary is great, the new company's staff is largely made up of people who've migrated from his current employer, and the company is located across the street from his current employer.  Talk about an easy transition!  I think this is going to be a great move for him.  We said 'screw you' to our diet and went out for sushi to celebrate.
  • One of my closest co-workers at work officially announced that she's leaving our company this Friday.  It's bittersweet.  I'll miss her, but sometimes it's for the best that people move on.
  • I had a Yogurtology date with Tracy and Tammy, and you know fro yo is always a highlight of my week.  I just love those girls!  They're the best entertainment in South Tampa.
  • I went on a solo shopping trip on Saturday, and even though I don't love shopping alone, I have to say that I got SO MUCH DONE in a short amount of time!  It's easier to shop alone when you're buying underwear and Spanx.  Maybe I should shop alone more often... maybe.
  • I met up with Jess, Steve, Joe and Megan for dinner at Datz on Saturday.  I had an Apple Pie Moonshine Martini that was freakin' amazing!  It tasted like Trop 50 apple juice.  Talk about dangerous.  I'd go from zero to wasted with just 3 of these puppies.  My dinner was also good (Havana Hottie sandwich), but who cares about food when the cocktails are so fabulous?!
  • I met Nichole and Lauren for brunch at Datz on Sunday.  Yes, I went to Datz for two meals in a row.  I think I like the place!!  I loved getting to see these girls again, and hopefully we can meet up again soon.  I also got my monkeybread fix, so all was good.
  • Hubs and I had a heart-to-heart on Sunday and it just reminds me of how much I love him.  He even bought me flowers, and what girl could be disappointed with that? 
  • I've been crazy busy so my house has fallen to Hell in a handbasket.  This new week is dedicated to cleaning up!
So I've had a great (and tiring) week, but I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.  I hope you've all had a great week.  I've gotta go now and catch up on some blog reading... :)

Loving Mother's Day

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!!  I can't believe I haven't been able to post about Mother's Day weekend yet.  I've just been crazy busy, and it just hasn't felt like there are enough hours in the day.  Ya know what I'm sayin'?? 

Anywho, I had a great Mother's Day weekend!  Hubs and I went down south to visit my parents for the weekend, where I ate everything wholly forbidden by my diet.  Steak.  Cocktails.  A Sausage McMuffin with Egg.  I even tried one of those new Confetti Cake Blizzards from Dairy Queen!  It's essentially funfetti cake in vanilla ice cream and it. was. the. bomb.  I recommend you grab one of these bad boys as a snack or cheat meal or whatever floats your boat.

Aside from eating, we were there to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom, who is truly extraordinary.  I know everyone says that about their moms, but I really do feel that way.  My mom's sweet, generous, a great cook, and SO wise.  She has the best advice and she's extremely smart about money, work, household stuff, marriage...  She's an amazing resource for almost everything.  It's no wonder that I talk to her everyday!

For Mother's Day, my sister and our husbands gave her a gift card to Bonefish Grill (one of her new favorite restaurants) and a Bissell Steam Mop.  She seriously wanted that Steam Mop, so we finally got it for her so she'd stop begging me to order her one.


That's one proud Mama, posing with her coveted Steam Mop.  You'd think that thing was a Rolex the way she's smiling about it and snuggling up to it.  But that's my mom.  She loves her cleaning implements.  (Also notice that her trusty iPhone is right next to her.  She's addicted to that thing too, especially Words with Friends.)

We took my mom out to a lovely restaurant overlooking the ocean, Gulf View Grill in Englewood, where we saw water and palm trees and a little beach village. 


I also had a truly magnificent cocktail, a  Key Lime Pie Martini...


I also like to celebrate Mother's Day because I'm a mom to my sweet dog, Bella.  Even though she's not a human, she's a person and a vital member of my little family.

Oh hi, I'm Bella.  But you can call me Piglet or B-Boozle.

Bella is 11 years old and I'll have had her for 10 years this July.  I love her more and more every year, and I can't imagine my life without her.  She's been a part of my family since I brought her home from the Humane Society at 9 months old, and we've really grown up together.  She saw my through my turbulent 20s and now into my 30s, and we've settled into a pretty great life together.  Here are a few of my favorite recent pictures of Bella...

Pretending to be a cat.

Waking the Princess up from her peaceful slumber.

During a recent trip to the vet, where she looked SO worried.

Even though I don't have a human baby yet, Bella will always be considered my first child.  Hubs had come to accept this as fact, though I'm sure he thinks I'm being silly.  I'm just completely smitten by my pup!  To celebrate Mother's Day, Hubs sent me the picture below via text message...


I hope all of the other moms (to humans and/or furbabies) out there had a great Mother's Day too!

Resurgence of Fug & Latest Lovelies

It's no secret that one of my great joys in life is shopping.  I love to check out new trends and get excited over what's coming next in clothes, shoes and beauty products.  Lately I've noticed a few trends that I'm loving, but I also noticed a few trends that I'm absolutely not feeling.  Apparently the 80s are back in a big way, and the particular trends are not, IMHO, the best fashion of that era.  In fact, some of it is just fugly. 

80's Fug

First up, neon.  I honestly thought that the ugly, blindingly-obnoxious neon of the 80's was long gone, but I popped into Forever21 the other day and was shocked at how much neon I saw.  Jaw to the floor.  In all fairness, some of what's being labeled as neon these days is really just bright colors--not like the gag-inducing neon I sported so proudly in my youth.  I am totally down with bright colors, I love 'em, but the serious old-school neon shizz just isn't my bag.


Charlotte Russe

F21
No thanks.

Another emerging trend that boggles my mind is printed denim.  I remember owning floral printed denim shorts, as well as a HOT leopard print denim vest in the late 80's (I must have had a delusion about being a member of a hair metal band).  I also remember ripping those clothes apart in the 90's when printed denim was so very passe.  I simply could not believe my eyes when I saw floral and animal printed jeans in several stores this past weekend.  I felt like I'd been teleported back to 1988, except I was no longer 10 years old and my bangs weren't teased and sprayed within an inch of their life.  What makes it even worse is that much of the printed denim I've seen is in the form of jeggins or some other extremely slim fitting pant.  Nothing like skin tight floral print to make your ass look ginormous.

J Brand

Citizens of Humanity
Not in my closet.


My Latest Lovelies

So, those are the trends that I'm not feeling.  But I really do love other trends, and have had a hard time staying away from these when I head to a monument to consumerism (shopping mall, 10 points if you can name the movie reference).  Here's what I'm loving right now...

Floral Prints.  I hate floral denim, but I'm not anti-floral!  I love floral dresses, handbags, jewelry... it's so cute and summery.  Floral prints are ranging wildly from huge and bright to small and demure.  They're all pretty, girly and fresh.  I will love wearing floral (anything other than denim) this summer!

Kate Spade

J. Crew
Old Navy

Maxi Dresses.  I know I'm sort of short and squat, but I can't help but like the look of a bright maxi dress.  Maybe I just love the coverage for when I'm sunburned or feeling self conscious about my legs.  I liked the first dress below so much that I bought it for my upcoming cruise.  It even has my Hubby's approval!

Old Navy

F21

Nautical-inspired.  I have always been a fan of navy blue, so the nautical look has always had a special place in my heart. But lately, nautical is everywhere, and I couldn't be happier about it!  There's something about a boatneck that pleases my soul.  I even wrote a navy and white striped dress to work yesterday with gold accessories and gold flats.

Bangle Bracelets.  I haven't had a long and storied history with bracelets (I'm more of a necklace and earring gal), but the simple, classic bangle has always had an allure.  However, I've seen some crave-worthy bangles lately that are dying for a place on my arm and a home in my jewelry armoire.  There are cute, demure gold and silver bangles, and there are some that are big, bulky and colorful.  They're all beautiful!

A Quickie on Cinco de Drinko

Hola chiquitas!  The Monday after Cinco de Mayo is always a tough one, knowing that our little fun-filled Mexican drinking holiday is now behind us for another year.  Make me sad, but just for a second because I remember how many other amazing things are ahead of us this year!  I'm really loving 2012!

Cinco de Mayo was supposed to be a girls-only dinner-and-margarita-a-thon, and at one point there were 8 of us going.  As the day grew closer, some of the girls ended up having to work, one's husband surprised her with a weekend getaway, etc. so it ended up being just me and one of my best girlfriends, Tracy.  We always joke that Tray-Tray is cray-cray, but that's the charm of the girl!  She makes even a two-person outing a night to remember.

We decided to hit up our favorite Mexican restaurant, Miguel's.  They opened a great new outdoor bar area not long ago, so we had to take advantage of it during our long wait.  We started out the evening with a couple rounds of these bad boys...


We normally don't drink Corona, but since it's practically a sin not to have some real cerveza to celebrate the Mexican motherland.  Plus they were on special, and we are girls who appreciate a bargain!

We waited for what seemed like a damned eternity, and we were finally seated for dinner.  Man, were our tummies growling!  We noshed on chips and guac while the very overwhelmed kitchen did its thang.  We knew we had lots of time, so snacking it was!


Yes, more Corona.  Remember, this is a judgement-free zone!

With dinner, I ordered a frozen pomegranate margarita, which was so delicious I didn't get a picture of it before the glass became empty.  Oops!  Bad blogger.

I actually snapped a picture of the Fantastico (3 enchilada combination), but the lighting was so bad I won't bother posting it.  This is exactly why I'm going to be investing in a new camera soon!

Here are me and Tracy, giddy from a night of indulgence, gossiping and laughter...


My empty margarita glass was in front of me, calling my name, begging to be refilled.  But alas, I had to drive home, so I had to cool it with the cocktails. 

When I finally got home, I was met by my little furbaby, Bella, who is so shaggy right now that her eyebrows are covering her eyes when she sleeps.


What a wonderful Cinco!  What did you do enjoy the Cinco de Mayo festivities?

Fabulous Friday

Hey there girlies!  It's now the best day of the week, Saturday, and I hope you've kicked off your weekend in style.  I went to WW this morning and lost 4.4 lbs this week, so I'm definitely riding a high right now! 

I wanted to share my fantabulous Friday with all of you because it was really a good day. 

Everyone in my department of work left at Noon to go bowling as part of our engagement initiative.  I haven't been bowling in years, and though I don't hate it, it's not my favorite activity.  I tend to not love activities that I suck at.  I decided that I was going to go into it with a bright, can-do attitude so I didn't look like a spoil-sport in front of these people.  In making the best of the situation, I did what most girls would do:  Pick out a pretty bowling ball and laugh at the sight of my feet in the ugliest shoes known to mankind...

Yes to Carrots?  No, Yes to Pink Bowling Balls!


Super u-g-l-y!  Even clowns would be scared.

From there, we ate lunch (bowling alley pizza is gross, btw) then got randomly assigned to bowling teams.  I prayed that I wound up on a team of people who were terrible so I wouldn't feel so awkward about my lack of skillz.  There were 8 possible teams, so surely I'd end up with other people like me, right?  Instead, I wound up with 4 other women who were all AWESOME bowlers, the kind who have bowled in leagues since they were 12 years old, own their own bowling equipment and wore their own league bowling shirts.  All 4 of them.  Ugh.  I think they were equally disappointed to end up with me, who's lucky to break 70 and finds gutterballs to be commonplace.  Within the first 10 minutes, I knew I was in trouble.  They had already begun critiquing my form, my approach, my release of the ball, etc. etc. in an effort to improve my crap-tastic game.  This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.  Please let me suck in peace, ok?  Okay.

I actually found myself cursing under my breath whenever it was my turn, sometimes at myself but usually at the people on my team who just would. not. pipe. down.  It was like heckling in it's more positive form.  I got through the game with a grand total of 72 points, and even had 1 strike (dumb luck).  My team actually won the prize for best overall team score, so I ended up winning something!  I chose this little gem off the prize table...

It's a Jonathan Adler Throw Blanket!  I absolutely adore Jonathan Adler's gorgeous housewares.

Here it is in action in my living room.  I'm loving the gray chevron pattern!

Our leader let us leave at 2:30, so I went over to my company's employee store to poke around.  Usually I don't find much that interests me, but on Friday, I found tons of stuff!  I knew I couldn't come home with all of it because Pete would have my hyde, so I had to put some things back.  I wound up with a few new things for a grand total of $50...

Sam Edelman Sandals in Neutral Patent Leather

Fusion Beauty Line Smoothing Concealer
If you haven't tried Fusion's lip plumpers and lip glosses yet, DO IT!  They're the bombdotcom.

My company is known for tacky handbags, but I thought this leather bag had some potential.  The chains with pearls and crystals can be removed, and it actually comes with a long strap so you can wear it cross-body or over the shoulder.  I really just loved the color for summer.  I'm not quite sold on the gold studs along the top, but for the price, it will be a nice addition to my ever-expanding purse closet.  It's a Frosting by Mary Norton bag.

The retail price of all these things is well over $300, so I think it was a pretty successful shopping trip!


I ended up getting home early, and so did my hubby!  That really never happens.  We ended up going out to The Bungalow for an early bird dinner to beat the Friday night happy hour crowds.  Our food was great but the highlight was my happy hour special...

Yum!

I spent the rest of the night at home with my little 3-piece family, watching tv and cuddling with this little girl...

I hope you all had great Friday and have even better Cinco de Mayos! 

Hasta La Vista!

It's Ok - 100th Post Edition

Girls, I never thought I'd see the day where I put up my 100th blog post, but TODAY IS THE DAY!!  I'm so happy that I've stuck with blogging and haven't given up on it, even when I got busy, or stressed or simply had writer's block.  And THANK YOU all SO much for reading!  I cannot express my gratitude enough.  I remember when I had 10 followers and I thought, wow, I can't believe 10 people want to read about my life and (usually) silly thoughts!  Now I have 42 followers.  I'm not exactly burning the place up with followers, but the number of followers I have isn't what drives me to share my life and thoughts anyway.  This blog started as a personal outlet and has grown to be a passion, an oasis, and better yet, a place where friendships are cultivated.  Your comments put HUGE smiles on my face, and I've absolutely loved meeting some of you in person.  I have lots of ideas for the blog this summer, and perhaps even a blog design overhaul coming down the road.  I hope you'll all like how things evolve this year!

Now, I've totally gotta link up with favorite weekly posts, It's Ok!  What's a week without one of these anyway?!  It just doesn't feel complete.  So without further adieu...


It's Ok...

...to be proud of myself for continuing to blog (it's been a fun 7 months!)
...to sincerely hope to maintain the friendships I've made through blogging (you girls are the best!)
...to go back and forth between blog design ideas, hoping to get it just right
...to buy a PowerBall ticket or two every week, just on the off chance that God wants me to win the lottery
...to have a never-ending, insatiable desire to expand my curated tote bag collection
...to be a total trash bag snob (only Glad Force Flex with Febreeze for this gal!)
...to love doing laundry but dread ironing
...for my favorite part of the day to be the moment that I walk out of work to go home
...to love coupons but hate the clipping/sorting/filing aspect of managing them all
...to search for Vanilla Cupcake flavored Goldfish whenever I hit the grocery store
...to feel like a little healthy jealousy keeps me striving for more
...to clam up just to avoid saying something I may later regret
...open up and just be me, all the time
...to love my husband's sexy Playoff Beard (yes, he thinks he's a Philadelphia Flyer)
...to stop slacking and finally finish my LinkedIn profile
...to have a million projects-in-waiting, but spend time time blogging instead
...to seriously consider giving up my diet soda addiction in favor of water
...to wish My Glam Bag would hurry up and accept my subscription request
...to look forward to Cinco de Mayo with my best girlfriends this weekend
...to love my life, flaws and all

What's OK with you this week??
