PWND

You know, you can feel as self righteous as you want and still get called out. I got these hand made sandals in Mexico that are gorgeous. I was wearing them tonight while doing some shopping and this girl came up to me and said, "I just love your flip flops!" She said flip flops!

Blitz is acting out


Blitz has been acting out the last two days. And when I say acting out, I mean he's been hosing things down. We're not sure why because he's been housetrained for a year now but something is bugging him and it's so not cool. Yep, I called him out. This precious face is really pissing us off. (I made a cool pun there)

A Hunter's Dream Package

Black Friday

Black Friday was weird this year. We ended up getting the stuff we wanted online but tonight we went out to Walmart and found the GPS we'd wanted and the sheets that were on sale. LOL We could have stayed at home and not done it online. Figures. However, the GPS was a fluke. Someone had put one on a shelf in stationary. We snatched it up and cancelled my online order. I can't cancel the sheets so we'll just get those when they come in with the site-to-store ordering.

25,000 gifts under $25

In these economic times we can use all the help we can get. Right now Kmart has more than 25,000 gifts for under $25. With that many to choose from you’re sure to find something for everyone and save money while doing so. All you have to do is go to Kmart’s site and there’s a spot for gifts under a variety of prices. Just click the gifts under $25 and start shopping. There’s a handy search engine so it’s easier to navigate and find exactly what you want. Just Click Here One of the gifts I thought was pretty neat is the alternative down blanket. I love anything that is down and down alternative is a great option when you’re on a budget. It also comes in a variety of colors to choose from.

For the past 100 years Kmart has been a place families can turn to for affordable items and easy shopping. With brands like Martha Stewart, Craftsman and Radko, there are quality items to buy but at prices you can afford. Kmart is also one of the few places left where you can put items on layaway, allowing you to pay them off in timed payments rather than burdening yourself with having to purchase everything at that particular moment.

Hostel II doggies

We were watching Hostel II again tonight since we got it on Blu Ray and for the first time (after seeing it about 3 times) we noticed that the dogs are different in two different parts. Those of you who know, know that we saw the Teruvian Sheppherds in there and long story short, that's how we got the twins, which are Belgian Malinois. However, the part where the dogs are chowing down on someone look like Belgians. I have a friend who is friends with Eli Roth so I asked him to ask for me. Yep, we notice things like that. LOL

A really cool contest

Ceiva has the neatest contest right now. You can go there and upload your picture and let Santa grant your wish. Not only does your picture show up on the digital frame, Santa and his little helper also calls you by your name and shows what you wanted in his book. Now how cool is that? I also got to share the video with my friends so they can see how much fun I had. And if you enter the Got a Wish Sweeepstakes right now they are giving away $500 prizes to winners.

Ceiva has an awesome digital frame that has the capability of receiving photos by Wi-Fi or phone. So now you can display pictures right on the digital frame that came from a cell phone or your Internet connection. Even people who have no idea how to use a computer can use this photo frame. It’s all done with plug and play technology and imagine how excited your friends or family will be when they can get a picture from you in an instant, without having to do a thing! Until December 24th they are giving these away at $100 savings and free shipping and best of all, a lifetime warranty. If anything breaks they’ll replace it for free and that’s forever, not just a few months.

The weather

Our weather here is so darn nice. Right now it's 67 degrees and it's almost 4 am. I am loving it. I figure it's so warm because it'll rain or something then freeze but we sure are enjoying it. The only con is that it's so humid outside that the pups like to make little paw prints on my ceramic tile so I'm constantly sweeping and mopping. At least I got that Shark thing to steam the floors with. It's easy enough to use all the time.

Free $250 gift card

Banner__bf08_300x250_google
Looking to get a bundle with cable, Internet and phone services at a great price? Right now during black friday you can order Charter’s services and not only get a great deal on cable, internet and phone but you also get a $250 gift card if you get the ultimate bundle. That’s right, $250 and you’re automatically entered to win an Xbox 360 game console. There are 45 of those to be won so I’d consider your chances pretty awesome.

The amounts of the gift cards depend on which services you get but the best part is that no matter which service you decide on, you still get a gift card. If you order Internet alone you get a $25 gift card. Digital home and Internet gets a $75 gift card. All three services warrants a $150 gift card and if you purchase the ultimate bundle, which includes just about everything you could want from a cable company you receive the $250 gift card to use however you wish.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was great. We had the best darn meal I think we've ever cooked. R's stuffing was a huge success and it was all done from scratch, right down to the cornbread in it. We only had one minor mishap with a pumpkin pie we thought you just had to thaw. It was the only thing we didn't do from total scratch and look how it turned out. All of our homemade stuff was great and the store bought pie ate it. It was our fault for not looking but still.

Now we're trying to stay up to go to Walmart at 5 AM since they have a couple of things we really want but darned if I'm not totally tired. I'm staying up cause I don't want to lay down after eating even if it was like 6 hours ago. I had coffee later so I want to be careful and not get sick. But boy are my eyes so tired. I want to take a nap bad. Wish us luck. LOL One thing we could get online but the other thing is store only so it's out to the beach we go. Good news is that it's like 64 outside still so the weather is awesome.

Darn you Best Buy!

I was all set to go online at 5 AM to two stores and get my doorbuster savings. Well, in an unprecedented move, Best Buy and a few other stores put the stuff up this morning before I got up. Keep in mind I was up till at least 3 AM and got up at 9 AM. Now the item we were going to purchase is gone, which means we'll have to stand in line if we want it.

On a lighter note, the turkey is in the oven, R's stuffing he made off of Food Network is awesome and dinner will be ready around 5 PM.

Twilight

Went to see Twilight today and I really loved it. It was pretty full in there and these people saved like almost the whole row I wanted to sit at but other than some annoying tween "OH EDWARD'S" we had fun. It's definitely something I'd watch over again. :)

Flat Belly Diet

Fbd



Sometimes you can diet all you want and still have a problem area in your stomach. This is where the Flat Belly Diet comes in. Right now they are looking for participants willing to try it out for free. All you have to do is sign up and be willing to blog about your results.

The Flat Belly Diet was scientifically created for people who have tried other ways of dieting and still have a problem with belly fat. The editor of Prevention Magazine created this innovative diet that centers on new research that discovered that healthy fats called monosaturated fatty acids or MUFA’s target belly fat. It’s interesting to note that the fat found around the stomach area is considered the most dangerous due to the high correlation to heart disease. With MUFA’s, you can eat heart healthy foods that help fight heart disease and these are not only good for you, they taste good too. Foods like almonds and dark chocolate are just a few of these types of tasty things to eat.

Now for the best part. You can receive this book for free if you’re among the select number of people chosen. You only have to try the diet out and blog about it at least twice a week. That’s it. You might even be one of the winners who gets a 1-year free membership to the flat belly website. All you have to lose is your stomach fat.

Movie injuries

I don't think they're very accurate. Either that or I'm some kind of lame person who can't take pain. You see people get shot or stabbed and they're all, "I'm fine, let's run!" but I have this pneumonia pain in my side and if someone said for me to spill secrets or they'd make it stay I'd tell everything I knew. I imagine getting stabbed or shot feels worse. R says that it's because their endorphins kick in so I suppose I need some of those endorphins right now.

Pneumonia

I have it. I've been sick forever here and there, thinking it was just the flu or a cold. So finally I went to the doctor since I had pulled something in my side when coughing. Turns out it's most likely pneumonia so I have a plethora of medicines including Abutirol and prednisone. I've never had an inhaler so that's pretty neat. The doctor's office was slam packed so I had to wait forever. I think everyone is sick with one thing or another. The good news is that my schedule is becoming more normal. Long story short, I'm going to bed at a regular time and getting up between 8-9 AM each morning. Yeah, you heard me right. I can't believe it either. R is off for the next week and a half so we'll see if that lasts. Wish me well.

Photos

I think someone once said never to work with children or animals and I know they're right on the animals part. We're trying to get our pictures for Christmas and we always do the ones with the dogs in it. Now the boys and Swan are great about sitting when told, etc but it's just getting them in the perfect area that is the hard part. They're great subjects, I just need the perfect background. We have this idea that we'll try to work on this week or weekend. We'll see how that goes.

Go shopping and make payments

Click Here

Wouldn’t it be nice to pick out all of your Christmas shopping items and pay for them on time without racking up interest fees? You can do that at Kmart with their handy Kmart Layaway for the Holidays program. It’s easy to do and puts the fun back in shopping. Why wait on picking out exactly what you want due to not having the money? With layaway at Kmart you just pick out your items and take them to the layaway counter. You’ll make a down payment and then payments on your items are due every two weeks. Once you’re done with what you owe then take your items home and enjoy. It’s just that simple.

There are a few things you should know. Be sure not to miss a payment since the items being held for you can be returned if no payment is made within 7 days after it’s due. There is a low service fee of $5 to utilize the layaway service and if you don’t pay for your items and they’re returned, you will forfeit your service fees. The same applies if you cancel your merchandise. You have 8 weeks to pay your items off so what are you waiting for? Go ahead and enjoy your Christmas shopping and take the time you need to pay for everything when you use Kmart’s layaway program.

Less than a month left

Till we go on our cruise. I can't wait to bask in the sun while it's freezing up here. Not that 45 is freezing cold to most of my northern friends but to me that's cold. Besides, I can't open up the windows or doors when it's this cold. I sure liked the weather the other day better. It was in the 70's then and darn near as perfect as you can get. Then the huge storm and now this. At least it'll be warmed up some today.

Shop at Sears by phone



Sears has an awesome program called STG just in time for the holidays. It’s called Sears2Go and what it does is allows you to shop from your cell phone. It’s the newest thing and Sears has it first. Not only can you shop by cell phone you will also get a text message when your item is ready to pick up at the store. Now how convenient is that?

The Sears2Go site has a handy search engine and useful links to items such as apparel, electronics and computers, fitness and sports, jewelry, tools and many more. Just pick the item on your phone, pay for it and that’s it. As soon as your item is ready you’ll know it because you’ll get an alert telling you so.

This is a great idea for people who have commutes by train and are too busy to be able to shop. Or even as a last minute option you can use the Sears2Go program and only leave your home when you’re ready to pick up what you’ve bought. Now how simple is that?

Check out the program today and start saving gas money by doing your shopping right from your cell phone. It’s new and innovative and can save you time and money.

New baby

My nephew and his GF just had a beautiful baby 3 days ago. We went there last night and got to hold him and wow is he a great baby. No crying or anything and when he did it was so brief that it was over before you even heard him hardly. He has a warm head! LOL You know I don't have kids so that was kind of neat to me, his warm head. I wonder if that's where the term hot head comes from. We took some awesome pictures that we have to drop off. Now, if I can only get the perfect doggy Christmas pictures taken with R I'd be all set.

Turbocharge your auto

Turbo Chargers Pro has all you need to supercharge your auto. Imagine having a charger on your car or truck and being the envy of everyone. If I totally wanted to bling out my truck I could put a supercharger on it and have it rock. We already have awesome rims, TV’s and all that other fun stuff that makes it stand out so if we had a turbocharger I would imagine that’d just be icing on the cake. Turbo Chargers Pro mostly has parts for most vehicles and a handy search engine on site so you can find exactly which turbocharger you need. I did a search for the H2 and while they didn’t offer it online, they do have a toll free phone number so they can locate it for you. They even sell remanufactured turbochargers so you can save money while upgrading your vehicle. A vw turbocharger is just one of the many turbochargers that is available.

Worst freaking movie ever

It's been a long time since I saw a truly awful movie at a theater but tonight not only takes the cake, it licks the bowl.

We were originally going out with Chris and all three of us went to dinner (nom worthy Bonefish Grill) and to see Saw V. (I said see saw) So right after we buy our tickets for Saw, Chris decides she'd like to see The Haunting of Molly Hartley. Well, R wanted Saw and I was neutral because I wanted to see both. Since she was more of a guest we said sure. Besides, we always buy the Saw franchises on DVD anyway.

Well, this movie bites worse than anything I have seen that called itself horror in a very long time. There was no blood at all other than a nosebleed. No horror at all. No nudity (just in case it had some redeeming value) and well, it sucked. It sucked so bad I fell asleep about 6 times. Now mind you I have a hurt rib. I either coughed funny or pulled a muscle near my ribcage. Either way, it hurts big time. There wasn't even a good plot. The only thing it had was that mean girl from Nip/Tuck and 90210 and the girl from Swingtown and the one guy that is marrying J.J. on Criminal Minds. They were given stupid roles too.

I am so sorry we didn't go ahead and see Saw. (did it again with the see saw) Not to mention it's bitter freaking cold outside. The wind is blowing like a monsoon and it's 47 degrees. It was the upper 70's yesterday...go figure. We did come home and watch Ricky Gervais' show on HBO, which was hilarious.

Dinner was excellent, the movie sucked, thank God for HBO and heat.

My newest wine


Vince Neil from Motley Crue has his own vineyard now. Here's the wine I got today although there's another that's pretty cool too.

Jobs, they has a suck

R's job is sure sucking lately. Not only are they having huge layoffs, now that they have gotten rid of so many people his insurance is changing. It used to be just $10 per week for him and that was medical and dental. Now it's free but instead of a low deductible you have to meet a $1500 deductible per year for a singler person and $3000 for a family. Sure, if you have an emergency you've met that instantly but what about regular doctor visits? You won't be able to use the insurance at all. I guess I should be thankful he still has a job for now since they are cutting people left and right and he's still not in the clear. We'll know more on Tuesday I suppose.

This sucks

I lost the gig at Demand Studios. This sucks because I was doing so well there. They don't have anymore articles to offer right now so I guess I'll focus on the WRG articles to make up the difference. Sure, I did fine before DS but I'll really miss that money each Friday in my Paypal account. I figure it's like anything else though. It's fun while it lasts and ride the gravy train as long as you can because no one knows when it'll stop.

Operator Tactical Pants

Operator tactical pants offers the best tactical pants in the world according to their website. What they do to offer you the best prices is to cut out the middleman. All of their stock is factory direct so you get quality tactical pants at low prices. They have over 20 years experience in law enforcement and the military so if you’re looking for operator tactical clothing, you’ve found the perfect place! These pants have more features than much higher priced pants and are selling out fast. They have sold over 3,000 pairs in just over two weeks so get them while you can.

The Moving Wall

We went to the Moving Wall tonight. For those who don't know, "The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for more than twenty years. The Wall is about names. At some Moving Wall sites, the sponsor makes arrangements for all 58,228 names to be read aloud. This takes about 72 hours. If each person reads for 20 minutes, (270 names) this will require 216 volunteer name readers. I found it quite somber but a beautiful memorial and I was glad I got to see it. Here are some picture and since there aren't a ton of them they are part of the air show pictures as well.

As Seen on TV & Domo

I am never getting another As Seen on TV product unless it's from Walmart where I can return it.

We recently ordered the Shark Floor Steamer thing which is similar to a Swiffer but it doesn't use chemicals and it's a steam, not cold water. Okay, so far so good. I ordered it with four monthly payments and a 60 day free trial. I got $158 taken out of my account. Heck, I can get it at Target for half that. Anyway, it supposedly has $40 for a warranty and $30 for shipping. So we decide since they obviously can't send it correctly we'll call. To return it we lose $30 on shipping and have to pay to have it shipped back. Then 7-10 business days we'll get our money back. Come on! I am so annoyed. I want to use it but I don't want to pay double what it will cost in the stores. Then we go to take the Peticure back and that was from the As Seen on TV store and we got our money back but even they acted all weird at first like we weren't getting a refund. *sigh*

Now for Domo. They have a huge one at Target that is a Halloween display. He's a big stuffed one that hangs from the ceiling. You know what they're doing with Domo after the holidays? Taking him to the dumpster. They have had tons of customers want him but they're not allowed to give him away so he'll be thrown away. Now how stupid is that? I understand that since he's a display they fear being sued if someone took him home and their kids choked to death on his filling but seriously can't they find him a home? I'm sad for Domo and could give him a great forever home. *double sigh*
