Fabulous Find #3

Oh my goodness! This is totally my favorite fabulous find so far: Palmolive Pure + Clear dish liquid in Spring Fresh. I know it might sound really crazy, but this stuff is awesome! We do not have a dish washer, and I HATE doing dishes, so anything that makes doing them more fun, I am all about! Not only is the smell GREAT (it smells so clean), but it cuts through grease in a snap. A week ago, I made some sausage & cream cheese crossiants and put my left over sausage & cream cheese in the fridge in case I needed to make more. Monday, I got the bowl out of the fridge to make the rest and then cleaned the bowl, which was full of sausage bits & cream cheese residue. It barely took any effort from me to wash the bowl. This liquid did all the work! Other pluses are that it is made with no unnecessary chemicals, no heavy fragrances, non-irritating dyes, & biodegradable cleaning ingredients. The reason I decided to try it was because...of course I had a coupon! You can go here and get one for yourself!

Snow Pictures

We got a pretty big snow on February 4, and I just wanted to share some pictures of me, Taleah & Jayden sledding at John T.'s parents' house. I have a feeling that will probably be the last snow we get this winter. The temperatures have been so nice lately! Right now, it's 41 degrees, but it is so beautiful outside!

Fabulous Find #2

The Mix 'N Chop: This little gadget from Pampered Chef can do all when it comes to just about anything!! A Pampered Chef® exclusive! Unique, beveled pinwheel blades efficiently chop and crumble foods for even cooking and seasoning. Its high-quality nylon design follows the curves of your cookware and won't scratch its surface. A soft grip and thumb rest help you comfortably grasp the handle and chop more easily. Heat-resistant to 428°F. 11". Dishwasher-safe. I use it when browning meat for tacos or browning sausage for cream cheese sausage crescent rolls. It really does the job, and it is a great investment at only $9.50!

Fabulous Find Friday

I am a marketing person's dream. I LOVE trying new products, whether it be hair, make-up, or hygiene items, food, whatever! And...I love telling other people about my finds! I have so many favorite products, food items, & completely random things, soooo I want to share them with each of you. Every Friday, I am going to post a "FaBuLoUs FiNd." Anyone else who wants to join in the fun, please feel free! I love hearing about others' finds, too! :o) Since I was little, I have ALWAYS used Crest toothpaste. I don't even really know why, but that was just a known thing in my house. If you buy toothpaste, you buy Crest. I think I only switched maybe once in college to Colgate Total because I read something miraculous about it in a magazine, but I went back to Crest and have stuck with it ever since. This toothpaste (Crest: Whitening Expressions in Wintergreen Ice) came out in early fall, and I promise, you will never go back to any other toothpaste ever again. It actually lives up to it's name and does WHITEN teeth. I have used it since September, and I can really tell a big difference. The taste is great, too! Not too much burn, but just enough! It is definitely a must have! Note: I use coupons FAITHFULLY, and there is almost always a coupon for Crest toothpaste in the Sunday paper. LOVE THAT!

Happy Groundhog Day!

I know this might sound really weird & crazy, but I always love to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow every Groundhog Day. This morning, he DID see his shadow, so you know what that means...six more weeks of winter! Happy Groundhog Day! :o)

1000th Win?

Tonight, Lady Vols head coach Pat Summit will try for her 1000th win, as the Lady Vols take on No. 2 Oklahoma Lady Sooners. I love the all of the tradition that comes with Lady Vol basketball, and I really hope the young team can pull off a win!
Lady Sooners!

Happy (belated) 23rd Birthday, CaSsI!

My friend, Cassi, celebrated her 23rd birthday on January 28th. Yesterday, some of us got together for her birthday lunch @ Cracker Barrel! I got a hot fudge frozen mug sundae!! It was so you can tell from the picture! I also got to see Brittany Webb & Christina for the first time since she found out she was pregnant! YAY! :o) She was so cute & hilarious! I hope you had a great birthday, CASSI!

January Catch Up!

John T.'s 23rd birthday was January 14th. We celebrated with our families by going to Red Lobster for supper, then we came back to our house for a GAC cookie cake. We LOVE these cakes!
