An hour I can never get back

I hate oil changes.  I realize they are a necessary evil, but if I make an appointment at 9am, I expect to get out of there at a reasonable time.  Like a half hour or so.  Not an HOUR!  Oh well, we need one, and we're going to Nashville, TN next week, so I want to make sure my car is in decent shape for the trip.  My biggest fear is breaking down on the side of the road, and my cell be dead and I am unable to call for help.  Yes, way too many Criminal Minds episodes, but it's the truth.  I'd much rather go under mileage on an oil change, and 'waste' that money, than break down in the middle of Kentucky.  We are actually pretty excited about getting out of town for a few days.  Luke is on Spring Break next week, so we're leaving Monday, and coming back Wednesday.  Just a short little break, long enough to relax for a little bit.  And get to see an area of the country we haven't seen, or spent a lot of time in.  Driving through on the way to North Carolina doesn't count.  And neither does spending the night in a crappy hotel on the way to Florida, like we're planning on doing in May. 
I know!  How crazy is that, that we get to actually take 2 vacations this year??  We haven't taken one since 2004, and we're taking 2 in a year!!  The last one we went on was to New Orleans, and loved that.  We've been talking about going back there, because we love the city, but circumstances have conspired to send us to Disney instead.  *darn*  So upset.  ;)

Slowly unpacking

We are finally completely moved from our old home.  I feel like I live in a hoarder house now though, until we get everything unpacked, and arranged where we want everything to go.
I've been cooking a lot since we've moved in, I feel like now that I have more space, I can create more food.  Even though, you really should see my kitchen, it's a pit, and the dining room isn't much better right now.  I did get a few bookcases up for my Junior League cookbooks, which is nice, because now I can put them away from the boxes that they're currently in.  And, in all honesty, I'd like to go through the cookbooks, and maybe photocopy those recipes that I do want, and then sell/get rid of them.  I hate being all 'hoardy' for lack of a better word!
I should be able to get some stuff done today, I'm having a Tastefully Simple party Thursday,, and then joining Friday as a new consultant.  I'm super excited, because it's good stuff, and it's a renewable item, so people will always purchase it!

The Saga Is Over!

After 2 weeks of barely having internet (or what I could cobble together on my phone.) I *finally* have the internet back. Oh my Gosh!  I never really realized how dependent on it I truly am.  I am back to playing games, and surfing, and being able to renew my library books on an actual screen.  Not something where my big fat fingers renew a million books at a time!

So much to little time!

I had an entire blog post written in my head regarding obesity, and childhood obesity, and how Indiana was one of the fattest states, etc, etc, etc.  And then I realized several things:
1.) My computer is currently still at my old house.  And I'm currently sitting at my new house.  (This was at midnight or so last night. I'm back at my old house right now, because I can't access my facebook games on my phone.  Yes, first world problems.)
2.)When I was driving to the old house from the new house, I saw a tractor man.  And OMG, I love tractor men.  He was easily early 20's and just tooling along on his John Deere.  Yum.  Yeah, I don't know if I was drooling over tractor man, or the John Deere.  Probably both equally! 
3.) I haven't really talked about our new house yet.  Although, I left it this morning, absolutely frustrated, due to our bed's box spring not able to actually fit up the stairs.  Yes, Charlie and I can get it up 5 stairs, out of about 20, and then the ceiling of the bottom set of stairs just gets it stuck.  As soon as we can get it up those few stairs at the bottom, it opens up, and THEORETICALLY, it will fit.  We just have to get it up there.  Ugh. 
4.) I just booked a trip to Disney at the end of May!  Whoot!  It will be Luke's and Charlie's first times there, so I'm super pumped.  I haven't been there in FOR-EVER, like 1994 forever.  We are staying on site, and we're also planning a few days off site, so we don't have Disney overload.  And, I want to see the Gulf of Mexico, and hit some shopping.  And of course, it kicks off my 'Operation lose 25 pounds before Disney in May' 
So yes, this is all that's been happening in my life up to this point.  I'll definitely be blogging about each of them as it gets closer, and finished, and whatever.  But, for now, I must get to the post office, and then pick up Luke from school, as he is now officially a car rider.  You know, since he blabbed it to his entire class that he was moving yesterday!  :)

Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew

I was so excited to receive my Bzz Kit in the mail yesterday!  I couldn't wait to blog about it.  I am a BzzAgent, and I get to participate in Bzz campaigns, getting samples, and giving my honest feedback.  I've participated in several campaigns, everything from Otrib to Lowry's Seasoned Salt.
The Bzz Campaign I am currently participating in is the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream.  This product immediately and effectively makes your skin look naturally more even, radiant and smooth.
I've never tried it before, but am going to try it starting tonight to see if it lives up to the hype!  I will post a picture of around my eyes either tonight or tomorrow.  It will be taken tonight before I start using the cream.
