4 out of 6 Not Bad

As many of you already know, I assist my complany by participating in the Wildlife Sustainability Team. I have posted many times on this. We have bluebird boxes that we montior and then report the number of birds raised every year from those boxes and the species.

Well, here are the newest additions as of 6/25/14...

Out of my six boxes, I have babies in one (house wrens) and eggs in three others (bluebird in two and tree swallow in the other). I have already fledged 10 baby bluebirds this year from my boxes as well!!

Here are my newest kids...

Here are the baby house wrens...can't wait to see these guys all cute and furry!! This is like day one after hatching...

Here is thetree swallow nest...

Bluebird eggs...soo pretty

Very light bluebird eggs.....maybe one hatching where it is cracked?

This is such a great break for me at work. I love getting out of the building at lunch and walking around and checking on these adorable birds. If your company offers this you should check it out! I promi…


I csnt believe hpw late I am posting this! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ipsy and I look forward the getting this awesome little envelope each month!! It is only 10$ a month to have this beautiful little gift waiting for you once a month - I deserve it!! If you want one, get  yours here!!!

Each month all your samples come in a cute little cosmetic case!! Love every one that I have gotten so far!!!
Here is my perfume sample. I was not pleased about this one as I have so much perfume already and the sprayer broke the first time I sprayed it to smell :-(   ICK!
And an eyebrow pencil. I was encited to try this as my eyebrows are getting lighter with age and I think I finally need to use one of these!! Also, as you can see - a lot of the samples in Ipsy are full size - love this!
This stuff was great!! I used this in place of my usual Frizz Ease and I liked it as much if not more! I will definitley be ordering this!!! It kept my hair smooth and felt nice and light!!! LOVED

5 on Friday

Hi ya'll!!
I am sooo happy that it is time for Five on Friday!

I love this link up and ready about everyone elses favorite fives of the week and it also means, obviously, that it is Friday!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoop! Whoop!

Here is what I am loving this week!!!

I became a Jamberry Consultant!!!
 I LOVE these nail covers!! There are over 350 designs to choose from!! They cost wayyyyy less than a manicure and there is no drying time!! You can do all your nails or just a few to make them pop!!!
Here are mine today... they are the white chevron can wear them alone or on top of polish like I did here! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

They last at least 2 weeks!!! Soooooo much better than a manicure and you do not have to file your nail beds so they are better for your nails than Shellac!
This is only four of the 350 designs available!
Check them out HERE!!! If you order from me online, they will be shipped right to your door!! AWESOME!

I started Xtrac laser treatments this week for my psoriasis. …

Jamberry Consultant

I am sooo pleased to announce that I am now officially a JamBerry Consultant!

I love these nail wraps so I am more than happy to work for this company!!

The nail wraps will stay on for over 2 weeks. For each pattern you select, you will receive a large sheet with 20 individual wraps on it.

You will cut each wrap in half and simply heat it with a hair dryer and then stick it on clean (or polished) nails.  Press the whole thing down firmly making sure to focus around the edges and you are done!!! Simply file off the extra from the end of the nail.  Complete video instructions are also available oin the website too! They are so easy and protect you and your children from the polish fumes and also NO FILING the nailbed!! These will protect and allow your real nails to grow underneath with no damage to the real nail!

Also, no drying time!!! Perfect for the little children that want to have painted nails and cannot sit stilll long enough to let them dry - no more polish on the rugs and furnitur…



This is the reason that I signed up for Birchbox! This month it is finally a good one again! I was so ready to cancel my sub and they reeled me back in with this months goody box! Here it is...

Here is the stash!!!
Some Love Conditioner and Shampoo (not pictured here) - this is amazing!!! I have already gotten two uses from this tester and I think I am actually going to buy this product - LOVE it!
Some hair milk - I have not tried this yet...
Some Vitamin C face cream...Very smooth and feels wonderful!
And finally, some lip lube. Not a fan of this color so I will probably give this away but I like the product itself!

I LOVE this product!! I have used this twice and it makes your skin feel sooo smooth!! Amazing - may even buy this!!!
 Thank you Birchbox for redeeming yourself this month!~ I love my subscription boxes, it is like a little gift to myself each month, I woudl hate to cancel my little suprise. 

Lately, though, the product testers have been too small to even try the prod…

I am getting serious, seriously!

This is more than likely the 100th post where I have said some version of that! HA

But, I am serious! I work out like a maniac EVERY DAY and only maintain - that means I am consuming WAY too much food everyday!

For this post on - I am logging everything that passes my lips and finishing this weight loss once and for all! I have about 40 pounds to go and I need this done!!!!!!!!!!

Yea me!!!

PLEASE leave me comments with any tips and tricks you have for this sort of thing!! I am so frustrated that I keep saying this and then do not hold myself accountable and eat whatever I want!

HELP ME!!!! Thanks in advance - you guys rock!!!

Some Days Psoriasis Sux!

To the lovely lady at the grocery store yesterday....I honestly thought I was on What Would You Do? When she grabbed her child and moved away from me in line stating LOUDLY "Why would anyone go out in public in shorts looking all contagious like that? Come on, move away from her". #1 I am not contagious I have psoriasis and #2 get teeth before you judge others!Also, big thanks to the man that said "ignore her she's an ass!"People amaze and depress me...this experience was depressing! Do not even know what to say about it.Some days I totally understand the reaction and other days it just makes me sad...right now in sad mode! Posted with Blogsy

Happy Fathers Day

I am just a little late with this post for Fathers Day!  It is all good though because my Dad does not, to my knowledge, read my blog and I spent the weekend with him!!
First let me say I am the luckiest girl on the planet! I have an amazing father that instilled so many things in me like morals and ethics and also taught me useful life skills.  One of my favorites is "if it breaks, TRY to fix it". I can work with all kinds of tools, power and manual and I love to try to fix things in my home. Also, my car! If I can fix it, I will. Google and U-Tube help with this a lot too however, he gave me the courage and gumption to TRY!  He worked hard to provide for his family and was always there to help us and support us in whatever we needed! He never thought about himself, he ALWAYS put his families needs FIRST!!!! He was harsh and stern when he needed to be; back when parents were NOT your friends but your teachers! This was EXACTLY what I needed to make me who I am today!

Thanks D…
