Tonight I visited one of my friend’s new home. She was having a house warming party. I brought her a basket filled with kitchen utensils and dish towels. I found some dish towels that had grapes and vines on them since she is doing her entire kitchen with a grape theme. They were a cream colored with purple and green grapes strewn about.
Anyway, what really excited me while I was at her house was her bathroom. It was absolutely gorgeous. She has one of the most stunning vessel sinks made of earth toned marble. Her counter tops where in a similar marble color. The flooring was a breathtaking tile that I wish I had in my house. It looked easy to clean and was probably heated too. I’ve always thought heated floors were fancy. All of the linens were a cream color with a brown accent stripe. The whole room looked warm and inviting in it’s natural tones.
The rest of her house was just a beautiful as the bathroom, but I just couldn’t get enough of how lovely even the guest bathroom was. Normally the big bucks are spent on the master bathrooms and not the guest baths. She’s one lucky woman to have that gorgeous home.
I find it amazing how today’s music can be made with machines with funny names like kaossilator and not have to play any traditional instruments like a guitar, drum, or keyboard at all. I have mixed emotions about the use of machines like that. I find the technology amazing and fascinating, but I also feel sad for all of the people in the world who are taking band in school that will never actually end up using their instruments once they get out of school.
There are some really funny kids movies out. I love the way there are different levels of humor in the movies, so that children find funny things but there are also funny moments for adult level humor. One of my favorite kids movies is called, Up. This movie is funny in so many different ways. I have watched it several times and every time I see it again I notice little things that I hadn’t noticed before.
A good deal is something I’m always excited to find. I’m always of the mindset that I should not have to pay full price for something if I can find a deal for it. I find a really neat site that takes all of the work out of hunting the awesome deals down. It’s called nomorerack dot com. This site has fabulous prices on all sorts of items that I might be in the market to buy.
This site is not just filled with junk either. It has famous brands and they make sure everything they is the real deal not a fake. I love that they take pride in their deals and want to make us happy because it keeps us coming back for more. Most everything on the site is heavily marked down. You won’t be paying full price for anything. Everything is between 60 % to 90% off of the retail price. With discounts like those, I’m able to purchase more for my family. You have to check it out daily because the deals only last for one day. This means things go fast, but it also means there are new deals every day!
In addition to the regular deals they also offer Insanity Deals. These are deals that make you think they are insane to offer the item for such a low price. These deals are extremely limited. I wish I would have been able to snag one of these deals for the IPad 2 that I recently purchased. I would have been more than happy to only pay $43.20 for it instead of the hundreds of dollars I forked over.
There are even deals where you can get items for FREE; you just have to pay shipping. The deals get even better if you tell your friends about them. The more friends you have that register the more free products you can earn. Your friends don’t even have to make a purchase. I’m excited to get all of my friends and family to join so I can earn a new digital camera, or maybe a big plasma tv.
So not only are the prices on the site terrific, but the shipping is not outrageous either. I would expect to pay for the deal one way or another but shipping is only $2 per item. That’s ridiculously low and right in my budget! I’m thrilled to honestly be getting great deals and with super low shipping fees. Everyone should try out this shopping site to score awesome deals without having to hunt them down.
Temper tantrums, melt downs, hissy fits, you name it, it’s all the same thing. I can’t stand when for some reason Lady Bug freaks out and throws the biggest temper tantrum known to mankind. She’s pretty good for the most part, but when she starts whining and complaining about the littlest things it really gets on my nerves.
I try to be as patient as I can because I know she is young and is still learning and I can’t expect her to be perfect all of the time. I know part of it is probably her way to get attention. I’m really trying hard to not give her negative attention. When she throws the awful fits I have to just plain ignore her and not give in. I don’t want her to associate throwing a fit with mommy giving in and her getting what she wants.
