"Juicy gears for the 17-27 year old buyer. Now that you're getting older what brand are you going to collect next?"
I meant this in a nice way.:) Why did you take it soo wrong? You dress great...and you love clothes... I just thought you had another brand you were planning to collect after Juicy... I guess not! Sorry if I hurt your feelings. Geesh....

Thanks Anonymous for commenting! Usually when bloggers get anon comments, it is because the person wants to take a jab at the blogger and not own up by leaving their name. I only did this in fun ... no hard feelings, honestly! I welcome any and all commenters - I am always happy to have people checking in on my blog. I appreciate you reading my blog and commenting when you do! Hey - you gave me something to write about! LOL! No hard feelings here, promise! :o)

Just showing off my feisty side ... hopefully I didn't scare anyone into not commenting anymore! Ha, ha!! Anon comments are usually meant to be rude, but obviously not intended here.

I needed to give myself a bit of a break between watching the movie and sitting down with the book. I tried starting this series immediately after drooling over the big screen, and then again after watching the DVD, but for whatever reason I just couldn't get into the words on paper.

It's been almost a month since I took my solar nails off, and while I am missing the strength and the perfect, flawless look of having nice nails, I am enjoying a little bit of the au naturel feeling. I have been learning to give myself manicures in the process and have decided not to quit my day job. Ha! But, picking up fun new nail polishes when I am out and about is a bit of a treat for this little shopaholic.
This giveaway is for a cute little cosmetic bag, fun nail files and pedicure toe separators (cuz the toes gotta look good, too!!), and 2 fabulous nail polishes by Essie. The colors sound kinda naughty, but they are gorgeous! Decadent Diva is really similar to the blackberry color I have on my toes right now, and After Sex is just plain hot!! You'll love them!
If you are a follower of my blog, then leave me a comment to enter! Twitter, Facebook, and Blog shouts-outs earn you extra entries!!
You girls have been awesome this week and I am absolutely loving all my new friends who are following ... tomorrow is the last giveaway and I promise it to be so Juicy!! Spread the love!! xoxo

I can't rave about this brand enough ... love love love it!! For those of you who use it, you already know. MAC is amazing!! My hubby has seen a lot of little black bags come home lately, and each time he asks how my make-up boy at the MAC counter is doing. Ha, ha!!

My 5-year-old son took this pic for me ... he thought it was so fun to be on the other side of the camera for a change. Ha, ha!
Here we are at the shower ... isn't my niece adorable? Her mama is going to have her hands full!

So here's how to play ...
1. Open your first photo folder saved on your computer.
2. Scroll down to the 10th photo.
3. Post that photo and story on your blog.
4. Tag 5 others to play along.
Whew! I am glad that particular photo was a good one! Ha, ha! This pic was taken of me, by my hubby, on our vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico this last January. His parents have a timeshare there and go every year. We were lucky to get to go with them this year and had an absolute wonderful time!!
Now let's see what's in your picture file ... keep this tag going!!

First off, let me tell you how much I love the YoKids line of yogurts for my growing boys!
No phony colors.
No use of toxic pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.
No artificial anything!
My boys love the squeezable tubes of yogurt ... quick, easy, no mess. They especially gravitate to the packages of yogurt with their favorite cartoon characters on them, as we all did when we were kids. But I just cringe when I look at the high amounts of sugars, and artificial colors and flavors. I normally do not buy organic foods, nor do I ban items with high-fructose corn syrup, but when I am buying something that is supposed to be nutritional for my boys, you better believe I will look for this particular brand! Wholesome, organic, and a great peace of mind that my kids are getting the nutrients that they need.
Here's your chance to win this great prize package from the generous folks at Stonyfield Farms!!
A YoKids Cape, A Stonyfield lunch bag, an Eric Carle growth chart, a Stonyfield Farm Activity booklet with YoKids crayons, and 5 FREE YoKids coupons along with a coupon packet worth $5.00 off other Stonyfield products!!
Entering is pretty simple with lots of opportunities to win!!
