Today I cried like a baby in walmarts parking lot.

After I got off work today I went to mamas and then Nikki, Drex and I went to walmart to do a little grocery shopping. I pushed Drex around and he was busy checking out all the merchandise, smiling and talking to me. I love how every once in a while he would catch his mama walking by and he'd just stare at her. Nikki went back to work Monday and he has been staying with my mama. He seems to be adjusting really well. He is such a happy baby.
Drex's dedication at church, more on his blog.
As we were putting our groceries...well Nikki was putting the groceries in the car and I was putting Drex in the car and I lost my grip on the left side of his car seat. I didn't drop him but as my hand was grasping for the seat while the seat was falling my hand slapped....I tear up just typing the word slapped....his little face. It wasn't a hard really kinda grazed it but it cared him and he started screaming. I couldn't get him out of that seat fast enough to love him up. So today I stood in the parking lot and cried.....hard, I was still snubbing (as my mama calls it) on my way home. The thought that I hurt that child kills me.

Jarritos! *review*

Jarritos is a popular Mexican soft drink that has been around over 60 years. The word jarrito means "jugs" in Spanish and refers to the Mexican tradition of drinking water and other drinks in clay pottery jugs. Jarritos is one of the few soft drinks in the U.S. made of pure cane sugar, instead of fructose corn syrup.

I received a box of Jarritos soft drinks to try out. I got all 11 flavors,  Toronja (Grapefruit), Limon (Lemon), Lima-Limon (Lemon Lime), Fresa (Strawberry), Tamarindo (Tamarind), Mandarina (Mandarin), Pina (Pineapple), Tutifruiti (Fruit Punch), Jamaica (Hibiscus) Mango and Guayaba (Guava).

I shared the Jarritos with Britt and Nikki. I was surprised at the taste of them. They aren't real strong like a sprit or pepsi is to me. They have a smooth mellow taste. My favorite was the Fresa AKA strawberry. It was super yummy. Britt liked the Tamarind best. It was probably my second best. Nikki just tried one and she said it was different...duh! She also said it was good...just different.

I was also sent a Jarritos T-shirt, and a ClubJarritos CD with artists such as Christian Castro, Belina and other artists.

If you'd like to try something different AND good then I recommend trying Jarritos. It's Available in throughout the U.S. in major and independent grocery stores.

I do love my lip balm....and I've found the perfect one! *review and giveaway*

I have chapsticks and lip balms everywhere! I have to know that whatever room I'm in or car I'm driving or purse I'm carrying I can always grab a tube. The stuff is addicting! I'm also very picky about the kind I will use. I don't like the thick kind that feels gooey to me like a well known brand I won't mention feels. I don't want the kind that feels like the lip gloss I wore when I was 14 either...the kind that shines so bright you blind people in cars meeting you on the road. I like mine to glide on and taste good....which is bad in a way cause I wanna eat it...I also like it to stay awhile.
Recently I was given a chance to review My Lip Stuff lip balm. The lip balm does everything I like and none of the things I dislike. Even better is the flavors I was sent, candy cane, pumpkin nog and coconut cream pie. I swear this stuff will make you wanna bake a pie and go to sonic to get free peppermints! 
My Lip Stuff makes all natural, homemade and animal friendly lip balms. They have 400 flavors and you can get personalized labels. That would make perfect gifts for showers,birthday parties or just about anything where you wanna give out favors.They also have :

Wanna run and buy some? Check them out here.

Wanna win some?
You can!! My Lip Stuff has generously offered one of my readers a a random 6 pack of lip balms ($13 value). Giveaway open to worldwide entries.


Go to My Lip Stuff and tell me what flavor you would like to try.

His picture was featured!! ....and other things to ramble about

I received an email from today telling me that Drex's picture I submitted was featured!!
You can see it here and if you leave a comment that equals a vote. I'm hoping I'm doing this right and something is telling me I'm not. Oh well...he is still my passion!

I go back to the dr tomorrow and I'm excited! I've been without arthritis meds for about a month now and I'm not liking it too much. I hate taking meds but having pain versus not having it 247 is worth taking them to me.

Sunday Drex turned 2 months old...I will have his 2 mth pics on his blog by the end of the week....hopefully!

My niece finally told us what she's naming her baby...still not sure why it was a big secret but at least we know now. His name is Chevy Zade and he will be making his arrival around Oct. 11th. 

I found a hat I wanna make for both babies at I am momma hear me roar, She made the cutest hats for boys and has a tutorial...I'm hoping to get mine to looking half as good as hers. 

I'm gonna try to catch up on a few blogs and then hit the sewing machine...later!

I finally got my hair cut!

I actually would like to go shorter on top...what do you think?
I have 2 people who normally cut my hair and both were unavailable so I went to someone I haven't used in years. I like it and it feels much better than it did. I'm thinking of going back to my natural color by slowly getting the blonde cut out. I say I'm thinking because I've said that many times before and that lil bottle of color haunts me when I go to long.
So honest opinion please-
Should I go shorter?
Put more blonde or let the natural color come out?

MONDAY MINUTE!! AND Meet me on Monday! PLUS I'm posting early.

I'm doing a twofer this week...maybe that will make up for my lack of blogging lately...maybe?
First I'm joining Java with Meet Me On Monday. 


1. Do you wear socks to bed?
NO I don't wear socks to toes need to breathe.

2. Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have Daisy and Butter. Daisy will be 10 this month and she is my lil chiwowwow and Butter adopted us this past summer, he's a lab mix and very loving.

3. What topping(s) do you like on your pizza?
All of them except sausage and anchovies. I like to fix my own sausage and pizza sausage never seems done to me and I've never tried anchovies....don't have a desire to try them either.

4. What time do you go to bed?
I usually hit it about 10 but I will lie in there and read for an hour or two before I actually fall asleep.

5. Would you rather get free chocolate for one year or free potatoes forever?
Free potatoes...I love chocolate but not that much. FYI- I just tweeted about chocolate,seems every one is talking about it today.

Monday Minute

This week our guest host is Evonne from Jules Out Loud

1. If you could interview any famous person, dead or alive, who would it be?  What would you ask?

I would like to interview Stephen King. I'd love to know how his brain works and where or how he comes up with the ideas for his books.

2.  You have to give up one thing for a month.  What would it be - car, guilty pleasure (ie. food, drink, fav. tv show), or sex?

I would say guilty pleasure and choose food which would be mexican. I haven't been able to eat hardly anything for a month now so I'm sure I'd survive.

3.  Is there a word/phrase you say that you are made fun of for?  If so, what is it?

I say awight for alright and get made fun of sometimes for that. I live in the South so any time I talk to any Northerners I get made fun of....they are just jealous though.

4. Which is a stronger emotion: Anger or Love?

I think hate is a stronger emotion because it takes so much from us to keep hate going. It gives us stress and unhappiness and takes a lot of energy. It eats us up on the inside and usually the person were hating couldn't care less.

and finally

5. Where was your first job.

SAJ distributors and they worked my hiney off!
