No, I’m good Yo!

Hey Everyone I am in one of those blog bursts where I write some stuff in a draft walk away and end up not finishing the post! I think I have about 3 of them from the past few days. I am going to try to mingle them together and get us a proper update on here :) The weekend was pretty mellow except for the fact that my dad nearly took a finger off doing something another in his workshop! He argued with my mom he didn't need to go to urgent care even though she made him go and he ended up with 3 stitches!  My mom said he literally went and finished cutting the board he was working on before they went! She also said he told her if she hadn't have been home he wouldn't have went at all! I am going to pick on him because he like to had a fit on me for not going when I just broke my foot-but hello tons of blood and could have got infected? OY! This is probably the last mellow weekend I will have for a while. ... I have been offered lots of great blogging opps that are actual visits ...

Lake Norman Beerfest 2015

This post is written in exchange for 2 VIP tickets to the Lake Norman Beerfest 2015..All thoughts opinions and statements are honest and my own! So you may remember me posting last fall about being really excited to go to Charlotte Beerfest?  I was going as part of a review and getting the VIP experience package for me and David! You can read that post "Charlotte Beerfest 2014 " if you want to see how excited I was and then you will see why I was so bummed because... ....you might have also noticed that I never posted a follow up to that post! What happened was that was the week David started really having panic attacks and he had been not sleeping , had a trip to urgent care and chest pains and all of that so we didn't actually make it to the beerfest! I was pretty bummed out but ... it was more important for us at that time to address those health concerns and get some rest. I figured I would try again for this year :) I also had no luck with getting us a ride back and forth at ...

Writing from the cozy perch :)

Hey Everyone I am writing you from my cozy perch- AKA my bed :) I have really got in the habit of getting in the bed around 8 and watching tv, burrowing, reading, playing hayday and whatever else I feel like doing (email,chat, hayday,etc) on the ipad ...it has resulted in lots of peaceful deep sleep, and waking up feeling so peaceful and relaxed!   Last night when I had the headache/nausea I did a bubble bath and some sleepy tea so that was nice too :) Today turned out to be a pretty good day all around. .I got up early and got my blogging done (even started working on another review! ) got tons of house stuff done and honestly before lunch was even here I was done with everything that needed to be done and was kind at the point where I could do what ever I wanted which is always fun! Thats why I REALLY like the spring :) David came home at lunch to snag one of the free chicken sandwich coupons we had - I seriously snagged 18 of them out of the top of the trashcan at the ...

Sunny & Bright & All is Right? :)

Howdy Everyone! I am up and going bright and early this morning because.. .. IT IS ACTUALLY SUNNY AND BRIGHT :)  Also, they are supposed to be coming by today with those cheap air filters for our apartments and even though I was on the list of folks that do not need those, because hello asthma and a cheap filter they change twice a year is a nightmare... but since we have new twits in the office I figure they will show up .. and I am right there is one sitting by my door right now when I had to take Marley out just now so.. yeah... I figure it won't be long now lol. I would love to buy a washable filter but that hasn't been something we have managed to be able to get just yet.. but something we have actually been considering since before we moved. Over at the old place we would have had to have had two because we actually had 2 air drawbacks. Anyways I have already washed a load of clothes, folded a load of towels, washed a load of dishes , done a tuesday 10 post, watched some ...
