Impulse Purchase: Thanks Pinterest!!

Like this gorgeous wrap bracelet? too!! Not sure what I was purposelessly searching for a week or so ago but I came across this Etsy seller's shop and fell in love with this bracelet! It was immediately pinned for later...

Happened to come in $50 bucks recently, as part of teacher appreciation week, and I had it spend from the moment it was in my hands. LuckyHorn was SUPER fast and I'd highly recc this seller! LOVING the final product...see, here's mine:

Life: Post Christian Grey...

Yea yea, it goes on :-) Aside from the snide remarks, am I the only one who gets totally into the books she reads? Come on, the Hunger Games? Twilight? Hard not to!! I LOVE me a book that I seriously am attached to and look forward to any spare moment to dive in it.

50 Shades of Grey has been seriously everywhere, but I really didn't hear of it until my Book Club savvy neighber suggested it to me. Well, really is was more of "You HAVEN'T read it yet?!?" I'll prepare you, if you have no idea what it's about, but not give the story away...

Think  *ahem* fantasy-world for many of us, maybe some couples' reality, but heck to each their own. Some have described it as "mommy porn". See where I am going? I pretty much blew through all 3 books easily as it was purely reading for "enjoyment", or should I say maybe the shock value. The writing was eh, but who actually reads it for the prose!

Any other Christian Grey fans? What else should I read next???

Stinky Towels: De-Mystified!

Once upon a time, a lovely young lady received a set of towels for her bridal shower. Even though these towels served her and her new husband well, they began to eminate a not-so-fresh scent when they became wet. The lovely young lady's mother pointed out time and time again when she visited her daughter that her towels needed help, but nothing worked! She tried cleaning and sanitizing the washing machine and she even resorted back to heavily scented detergent. She tried softener, and then no softener but nothing made them fresh!!

This lovely young lady came across an idea on Pinterest that was very popular with others. This made her feel at ease, since she was not the only one with not-so-fresh towels. She followed the directions of one hot cycle with one cup of vinegar and then a second hot cycle with 1/2 cup of baking soda. After drying her towels, they were as FRESH AS NEW!! And this lovely young lady and her family lived happily ever after, clean towels and all.
