Nichole and David’s Myrtle Beach Adventure Fall 2017 #myrtlebeach #sponsorswanted


  I am very excited to say that I will be doing another sponsored trip here on the blog! This has been 3 years (give or take) in the making, and I had all but given up and decided to give it another go- because I don't give up very easily! I have got a lot of NO's along the way, but it just pushed me even further!  Of course my last trip was to TN and it was really awesome, for the learning experience that it gave me when it comes to doing these kind of sponsored opps!   This time around I am hoping that everything goes a little smoother- last time I was sick the first day of the trip, David had just started having anxiety attacks (we didn't know what was going on at that time) and I overbooked our activities, and it was unseasonably hot! It isn't to say we didn't enjoy that trip because we did.. I am just hoping for good health all around and a little less stress :) I am putting this post up as a pinned post with my sponsors until after the trip- and I will … [Read more...]

Holiday Gift Guide 2017:Looking For & Early Sponsor Shoutouts #holidaygiftguide


  Hey Everyone! I cannot believe that it is already time for Holiday Gift Guide 2017. I decided to start a bit earlier than usual this year, because I had already started to receive pitches!  I am thinking of starting in Mid August /Early Sepetmeber. This is my main post that will have all the information, my early sponsors (they get extra love and shoutouts) and of course a form to pitch me! This post will be pinned for a while, and then I will switch over to the actual guide being pinned at some point, with a link to this post of course! My blog turned 7  years old in May and I had an AMAZING time doing my gift guide last winter! I am not in the reviewing for just whatever I can get for free, and I also write very in depth reviews and not just copy/pasted information from the products site or press release. Actually, my last two guides went fairly well- and I did realize that a few of the reviews for the guides didnt' get tagged for guides so I will be going back to fix … [Read more...]

trying to play catch-up


Hey Everyone Well.. .I Decided late yesterday evening to not make the trip to my grandmas. I know I'll be having the "got guilt" over it but I am so behind on stuff, plus with David having to go in so early this week and what not- and even better my parents  seem to be coming down with colds - I was like NO I am not traveling 5 hours both ways with ya'll if ya'll sick! I don't even know if they are sick why they would go up there anyways!  Meh! Originally it was supposed to be this big cook out whole family shin dig too but all that got changed so.. I don't know.. like I say there is just so much that needs done and some of it I am getting down to the wire on! I am trying to morph out of holiday gift guide to concentrate on trip prep and working on things related to it. which if I would have stuck to my original plan of having all of them but like 3 wrote by last Friday and the main post live - well i'd be doing a bit better- thanks allergy/cold/girly evil combo + everything in … [Read more...]

I am still here :)


Hey Everyone I cannot believe I Have went all week and not written! I think I have started a few posts but then I end up getting busy with other things and not posting them! This week has went by fairly quickly, I can't believe it is already Thursday. I am actually trying to decide if we are going to travel with my parents to go to my grandmas this weekend and I can't decide for anything if we will or not. I am so mixed on it!  You all know how I get anyways, and with the other trip coming up in like 2 weeks.. I just can't decide. I guess I'll have to think about it most of the day and decide sometime tonight that way if it is yes David will have time to get his stuff together because he'd literally be getting home from work, might have time to shower and we'd be leaving = it kind of depends on when he gets off compared to when my dad gets off and all that kind of thing. Admittedly it is easier to travel with them in general because David doesn't seem to be quite as stressed … [Read more...]

I met my weekend goals on Friday :)


Hey Everyone Well.. phew this weekend is getting gone in a hurry!  They finally got the a/c fixed right around 6 on Friday! They have to come back and check the temps inside and out I think tomorrow , but I think we are all square now. I don't remember if I wrote or not but it was some really little pin prick hole in the coil inside the furnace or something like that. Oh and that thing was rusted to high heavens and where the intake lines were it was so darn nasty and had to be cleaned!  I actually ended up shaving and putting clean sheets on my bed - I was like heck yes those were my 2 weekend goals and I already met them lol. Yesterday David and I literally curled up in the bed and watched Gone With the Wind until his race came on at around 330 or so. Then I took a nap , and I really don't think I did much after that lol. This morning I woke up around 3 this morning dying with girly stuff. I mean bad times.. I was so weak I couldn't make it up to get some advil so I finally … [Read more...]

The A/C Files : # 3! (2 this week)


Hey Everyone Well.. I am dealing with a broke a/c again! It went out sometime yesterday, and they couldn't come fix it last night because the one in the office was messed up too! David told them they didn't have to bring the portable (but I wish they had, it wasn't that bad but still) Anyways we slept with the windows open, patio door open and the fan going and it kind of reminded me of when I was younger and we would have company and I would have to sleep in my mom and dads room in the floor and she would have the fan running in the window so that was kinda cool :) From what I can gather they have determined that it is this pin prick little bitty bitty hole on the coil here in the house that has caused all this drama. Plus it is really rusted and the inside of our furnace is really gunked up with the intake lines so they want to clean that. I actually believe they either already have a coil that they can replace it with OR they have a way to get one here today the way they are … [Read more...]

It’s A Dog’s Life: Making Sure Your Dog Lives A Full Life


Making sure your dog lives a full life is the best way to ensure they are happy. Did you know that dogs can suffer from mental issues just like humans? They can get separation anxiety, and even become depressed. It’s crucial to make sure your dog loves their life as much as you love them. Here are some pointers that could help you:   Socialize Them With Other Dogs And Animals Dogs aren’t solitary creatures like some animals. They should be socialized! Socializing them with other dogs shouldn’t be difficult if you do it right, but socializing with other animals can be tricky. Still, it can be done if you’re consistent and you ease them into it! Bear in mind that some dogs enjoy socializing more than others, depending on breed and temperament.   Meet Their Daily Needs Meeting your dog’s needs daily is also important. They need fresh food, fresh water, exercise, and love from you. This is the very least you should be providing your dog with each day! … [Read more...]
