My school supply shopping challenge!

Since I was a kid, I've always loved school supply shopping! My entire family thinks I'm a little goody because of it, but to me, there's nothing like a brand new box of crayons, or a fresh, blank notebook!
My kids have been in school for years now, and every year we get the letter about the School supply kits for sale. I throw it right in the trash, because this is what I look forward to, to kick off the school year!
This year, I got the kids supply lists early, and I've already gotten some great deals! Both kids will need at least 2 1 inch binders, normally they are around $3-4, but I picked up 4 of them for $.37 each! Jewel is having a Closeout on tons and tons of school stuff, office supplies, and I'm racking up the savings because of it!
So, my challenge to myself is to purchase all of the supplies, hopefully WAY under what the premade kits cost! I'll be tracking my progress here in the next weeks! Let me know if YOU find any great deals!

I wish all the Daddy's out there are wonderful Father's Day! To my Dad, even though we haven't been close, I love you and will always cherish the great memories we've had while I was growing up!
To my hubby, thank you for being such a great Daddy to our kids!

Eden Fantasys Symphony Sonata Review- Adults only!

When I was contacted by Eden Fantasys about their product review program, I was very excited! I love their site, and am always looking to find ways to spice things up in the bedroom! After I turned 30, my drive has been crazy! Up and down, sometimes I think I confuse Hubby more than ever, lol!

I chose the Symphony Sonata to review, and upon opening it, my first thought was truly, "This is really cute", lol! There is a dolphin shape for extra stimulation, and of course hubby found it funny, but you know what? It really works!!

Eden Fantasys has a TON of Vibrators and other toys to choose from, I'd bet there is something for everyone! From lotions and potions, to toys and games, I can't wait to find my next product to check out!

Falling apart...

I've always been one to keep my feelings to myself, I don't have many close friends, and I never want to burden my family with my problems any more than I already have. So, when I have a crappy day, week, or month, I tend to hold it all in. Then, I finally explode.
I did tonight. I feel like no matter what I do in life, it's just not good enough, it's not the right thing to do, and I can't make anyone happy. For awhile, I've been thinking about how I am so far away from the person I used to be. I used to be this happy go lucky girl, I didn't let anything bother me, and I could make even the meanest person crack a smile. But lately, I feel like I'm only that mean person, and I DON'T feel like smiling. If it wasn't for my kids, I'd consider renaming myself Scrooge, or The Grinch. Year round, not just for the Holidays!
I don't know where I lost myself, so much crap has happened in my life that I just never recovered from, even though I thought I would. I guess holding everything in took it's toll on me, and now I'm paying the consequences for that.
So, as much as I'd love for this blog to have a fun, positive vibe, the next few weeks it may be a venting spot for me, so I apologize in advance!!!

Wow, that was scary!

I woke up Sunday and decided to go on my blog, and was greeted with a message after signing in that my blog had been disabled! I immediatly sent a message trying to figure out what was going on, but heard nothing! So I kept messaging Blogger, and finally tonight, it was back! I still don't know what happened, but that was scary! I know my blog isn't one of the big ones, but after almost losing it, I realized how much I enjoy having it : )
