Random Ramblings

~First things first.  I posted my blog review of The Honest Company on their Facebook site the other day.  They commented and thanked me for my review, which I thought was super cool.  And then I find out that Jessica Alba posted a link to my blog review on her Facebook site.  You guys, Jessica Alba was on my blog.  How cool is that??  This is the biggest moment ever on my blog.  Oh, and when I told B about it, he wanted to know if she was checking out pictures of him ;).

~This week was L’s preschool orientation. A meet and greet with the teacher if you will.  I can’t say L enjoyed it.  He tolerated it.  But I think his school looks super fun.  And I know he’ll grow to love it.  Even if they don’t have “enough” trains.

~I was so hoping that at the end of Teen Mom the other night that they were going to surprise me with another season.  My dream was crushed.  What am I going to do on Tuesday nights now that I don’t have Amber and Gary to snark on.  And I’ll miss the constant fighting between Farrah and her mom.  And no matter what, I still think Ryan’s hot.  I am looking forward to next week’s follow up show (or whatever it’s called).

~My Favorite Things Giveaway ends tomorrow, so if you haven’t entered yet, what are you waiting for?  And let me just say, if you “liked” me on Facebook just to get an entry in the drawing and then plan on deleting me after, I don’t like you.  You may still win because I have no control over that, but I’ll be super annoyed if you do.  Oh, and I felt like the comment entry “Why do you want to win?” was easy enough.  It’s not like I made you jump through hoops and go to this website and that for answers to my question.  Yet still, I got responses such as “I entered” and “I hope I get picked”.  Umm, helloooo?????  (Don’t worry, you are still entered and I am just playing – kind of.)

~I bought my first Christmas present of the year yesterday.  Not for myself (because I buy myself “Christmas” presents all the time), but for B.  I am guessing this gift will be broken within minutes of it being opened / used.  On the off chance B does read this blog (I think he reads about once a month), I won’t say what it is.  But I think he’ll love it.  For the few minutes it works anyways.

~I still haven’t gotten back W’s 3-month and L’s 4-year pictures.  I need to get some prints ordered for our photo wall (it’s got more pictures than this now) and some canvas prints ordered.   I hate to complain because it’s wedding season and my photographer takes amazing pictures, but I am not a patient person, so come on already!

~I am finally remembering to use Ebates (affiliate link) when I shop online and have already earned $20 in cash back!    This is one of those cases where you have to spend money to make money, but if you are going to spend it anyways, you might as well save a bit.

~I’ve posted about House Party before.  I even did a giveaway from my Benefit House Party a few months ago.  Well I was notified yesterday that I was selected to host a Keurig Vue House Party.  Umm, do you know what that means?  They are sending me a Keurig Vue (along with tons of other goodies) for my party.  And then I get to keep it.  How insane is that?  I was jumping up and down when I got the e-mail.  Thank you House Party and Keurig!!!

    I am also super sad over Teen Mom, and have a secret crush on Ryan! Even my hubby that was just passing through the room thought he was hot. LOL.

Anyways, super fun blog and I will be checking you out from time to time….so I don’t feel like I’m stalking you. Congrats again about the Jessica Alba thing….that’s so amazing.
