Morning…not going to say “good”morning because nothing is good about the headache I have from not drinking soda for the past 3 days! Maybe I shouldn’t quit cold turkey like this…maybe I can have just one ūüôā

Yesterday we went to RAC (rent a center) to lease a laptop, the sales guy/manager was super rude and very inpersonable. Wasted an hour and a half of my day to find out it would be 59$ a week!!! ridiculous! Walked down the street to a pawn shop and got a laptop for $85!! Amazing! Sorry jusnt had to rant a little and brag at the smae time.

I went to Walmart¬†later on yesterday and used some of my coupons (walmart¬†price matches)¬†and was able to get some pretty good deals. I also did some grocery shopping for my “healthy” dinner and lunches. Last night I had a black bean Boca Burger¬†on a bed of romaine, tomatoes, roasted corn, red pepper flakes and drizzle of evoo. It was DELICIOUS! I took a photo but forgot to bring my camera to work today. Will update blog tomorrow. I am trying to do as much “whole food” as I can but it is hard to switch all at once. I am now just being more cautious about the pkg foods I am buying which is still going down a better path! For breakfast I am having whole wheat waffles with no syrup or butter and fresh fruit. Lunches I am having boca¬†burgers and boca¬†chicken patties with salads. Snacks I have greek yogurt, fruit, nuts and Kellog’s¬†Special K protein bars and shakes. For drinks I am having tea, water and vitamin waters. I am very proud of myself and they changes I have made already.

If you go to the 7Eleven¬†website you can sign up to receive coupons monthly and I got Kellog’s¬†Shake for 1.99 and protein Bar for free!


Today at Vogel Alcove we are hosting a “Coffee with Kids” no…kids are not having coffee lol. We¬†are welcoming ¬†potential donors and volunteers¬†to come in¬†throughout the day to take a tour of our facilities, visit with the children of Vogel Alcove and get any questions they may have about our organization answered.

Yesterday we had a orginization called Mazies Mission here. They come once a month and bring in rescue dogs for the children to interact with and they read “dog related” books to the children for a brief story time. The children LOVE this day…except for the very ¬†few who are terrified of dogs. This helps them get over that fear though!

Well time for me to get back to work! Hope everyone has a great day~

I’m alive…barely


What a weekend!

Woke up at 5am Friday morning to start moving. Ended up having to get a Uhaul truck. Got everything in 3 loads but it took all day because it was just me and my honey moving everything!

Our doggies had a rough weekend. My youngest, Lola woke up Friday morning throwing up over and over and over. Finally got past the vomiting and then I noticed her poor little mouth was extremly swollen on the right side! I gave her some benadryl and it helped until the medicine wore off then it swole back up! After another round of benadryl poor baby was much better.

THEN…we let them explore their new back yard and they got into a MAJOR fight ūüė¶ Sadie punctured a hole in Lolas mouth and cut her left eye and Lola put a gash on Sadies chest! I was not very happy with them the rest of the day.

THEN…Sunday we applied a flea treatment on them in case there was fleas in the new yard and Lola decides to start rubbing her face on the ground and made her whole mouth and nose raw and bloody ūüė¶

Aside from all the doggy drama….I ABSOLUTLY LOVE OUR NEW APARTMENT!!!!! It is so quiet and all three of the other tenants in the building are awesome and they all¬†cook dinners for eachother¬†and share internet and cable. Our neighborhood is super cute!

On Sunday I went and took pictures of my one of my besties and her new hubby at a nearby park! Wish it wouldnt have been so gloomy, but i did manage to get some great shots!


Well this brings me to today, back to work. I had to learn a new bus route this morning and I still managed to get to work on time!

Good day~
