Working out

The summer come and gone and so has my exercise motivation. I have decided that October will find it. I dont have a goal yet...Well get back on the ball is goal enough. I will keep you posted via vlog...maybe. I will keep you posted on twitter most def and periodically on here. Wish me luck. I need to get my butt in gear and get back to an active lifestyle.

Redoing my dining room

I have officially started to gather items to redo my dining room. I will take some before and after pictures, maybe some during shots. I talked my husband into refinishing my dining table so this is going to be a real comedic experience. He gets so impatient with me and things like this. I will be starting on this after my birthday. EXCITED!!!! This will also be a budget conscience project. So lets see how it goes. :)

My husband is home and update

One of the hardest parts of being a military family is the long deployment. Well we just survived a deployment. There were a few scares but thankful my husband is back and my family is really having a ball getting reacquainted.

I am on my last leg of school. I will graduate in February with my bachelors in management. I will take a mini-vacation until August and return to complete my masters in counseling. I am super excited. I am petitioning to graduate in the next few days. YAY!!!!

My birthday is coming up October 7th and I am super stoked.Its the first time in years that my husband has been able to be home for it.  I am going on a mini-vacation and I will be documenting through pictures to share with you.

My husband just completed his Masters and now working to go back to get another masters in physician assisting. I am really proud of my hunny. Please keep us in your thoughts while he applies to the program. Happy thoughts! Happy thoughts! ;)

The kids are doing well. Though I do have to say that their social calender is more active than my own.

Nothing much really going on and I am starting to get more active on Twitter to keep you posted on what I am doing. I know I love social media to be social so if you are interested, please follow me. I love new friends. I was a facebook addict but I think that I am finally finding my way on Twitter.

Okay! So I think that is all that is going on with me. Well I have been doing my fall gardening which makes me VERY happy and feel at peace.

Talk to you soon. I will be post a few more things and then I will see you next week with my birthday pictures and such.

Better Homes and Garden wax blocks and burner

Bought these today and I have to say I like it so far. I am burning one right now with one cube in my hall bathroom down stairs and can smell it in my office upstairs. I have to see how long the fragrance last. Scentsy may get the boot. Based on the reviews on Walmart, the products received 4.75 stars. That's not too bad.

$15 at Walmart and the wax cubes are $2. You receive six cubes in a block.

This gets a thumbs up so far from me! If you have tried are planning on trying, please share your results.


"Black and White; Black soap review" Revisited

BLACK and WHITE Black Soap
Hello all!!! I have gotten a a couple questions about Black and White Black soap and I wanted to update everyone.

I do not use that brand black soap anymore but I do still use black soap. I have even incorporated shea butter soap to my regime. I now use the Shea moisture line. I have no particular reason for switching but out of habit that is what I have been using.
When I am using either product I do see a change in my acne. I don't have a big problem but around my cycle I do get a few HUGE zits.

Again, I believe that the black soap can be drying but it does a really great job cleansing. Get a good moisturizer would be my suggestion to help with the dryness. I LOVE Neutrogena. This is a GREAT product. A little goes a long way.

I was also asked if the Black and White soap removes dark marks. I wont say yes but I have noticed that it will lighten. If used with the fading cream, you should see very good results. Actually the company suggests to use both products together.

You can purchase the Shea Moisture and Neutrogena products at Walgreens. The Black and White products at Walgreen.

I have also tried the Olive oil soap by Black and White. I like it but not crazy about it. It may be great for those who have dry skin but I am the complete opposite.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.  My hunny is back from Iraq and I have been enjoying every minute of him. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week. Talk to you soon.
