A Slow Week

This has been one slow week but I guess that’s what happens when you are waiting on vacation days. I’m sure you’ve seen enough of nature lately..what can I say…I’m an earth sign and we love the earth. Greg and I are still looking at this farm and hopefully we will know something before the end of the year but you never know. It’s a waiting game and we are ready to wait. This picture was actually taken right before we saw a deer on (hopefully) our property.

This week has gone by slow and fast at the same time. I saw this today I had feel the need to share so you gotta tell me…don’t these kids look like they could be from Jay Z and Tiger Woods?!?! I mean really???

I’ve got some samples from Cellucor and so far I’m impressed. I’ve been hesitant on trying the products because they are not cheap but so far I’m loving them and feel that the price is worth the product. I still have some testing to do and I will let you know for sure but so far I’m really impressed.

I’ve been spending my lunch hour watching the leaves falls and truly enjoying what this season has to bring. I’ve been finding myself taking the time to enjoy the season and the quiet. I really hope we can get this farm because I feel like it will be good for me. I thing I need to slow things down a bit.

Today at lunch I was trying to catch up with everything and it can be overwhelming. I guess that’s why I’m actually looking forward to living on a farm with no internet. It will give me a chance to slow down and see what I’m doing. Maybe I can actually act like a wife.

In the spirit of Halloween leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite scary movie is.

All About The Wine

Oh man…it’s been a long week (again) but Saturday I went to a Halloween Wine Party with my BFF from high school. I had to work overtime at work in the morning but after 11am it was all about the wine…..forget the bass…lol

It was time to let my hair down and perfect timing because I’m going on a 2 week vacation next week. It’s like a pre kick off to my vacation.

I was not sure what to wear and I was planning on going as a farmer and putting on my overalls because they are that comfortable until I found my Victoria Secret PJs and I decided to go as a sleepy girls with my teddy,

I love spending time with my BFF and her family is super sweet to me too! I was able to take my pimp goblet home with me so that was a plus icon wink All About The Wine

It was a simple day with not a lot to say so I will leave you with my daily vlog and you should feel special because it’s been awhile since I’ve uploaded a daily log…oops…so much for daily…

Would You Live Without Internet

It’s no secret that Greg and I have been looking for a small farm to live out the rest of our years but a real question came into play today when the harsh reality of no internet showed it’s ugly face.

We took a second look at the house that we are interested in and Verizon FIOS actually has fiberoptic set up on our property (with a sign) but when we call them they say they don’t service the area but they do service the government building right next to the house.

It looks like it will not be easy to get internet at the house so the reality of no internet has come up and I will not say that I’m happy about it I can say that I do see some positive and I will list those below:

Quality Time with Hubby: I feel like I don’t always give enough attention to my husband because of the internet and everything I try to juggle so I feel like this could actually be a plus for my marriage.

NewImage1 Would You Live Without Internet

Enjoy Nature: If you are going to have a farm I think you should enjoy the process and not have your fingers stuck on a keyboard. What’s the point of having animals and several acres if you don’t use and appreciate them?!?!

NewImage2 Would You Live Without Internet

Take Time to Appreciate the Simple Things: Like I’ve already said, there is no point in having a farm if you don’t….farm. I spent some time today taking pictures and appreciating the simple things in life and it felt great. We are so busy with all these stupid gadgets that we sometimes forget about what’s beautiful and pure.

NewImage3 Would You Live Without Internet

There Will Be Plenty of Projects to Work On: If we get this property you will understand better but let me just say that this property needs A LOT of work done. I’m ready for it and actually really excited about the things that we are planning so we will keep our fingers crossed and see what happens.

Appreciation Week

This is is going to be a picture heavy post so I want to let you know in advance. This week was busy but honestly what week is not busy. Every year my company has what they call an appreciation week for us so I wanted to take you through our week at work (what I can share) and a week in what you missed in my life. Buckle up and let’s go for a ride down memory lane.

I got my flu shot this week and I can’t help but think of my mom who actually died from complications of the flu shot but that does not stop me from getting one because I believe that you die when you are suppose to and if you don’t take care of your body than you don’t have much to complain about and she was one who did not eat healthy and had many medical issues. Maybe I will talk about that another time. Anyways, my company gives us a flu shot and I try to take advantage so I don’t have to take a day off work to get this done.
 Appreciation Week
On monday they greeted us with mimosas and bagels to start the week off. It’s nice to be appreciated.

 Appreciation Week

Oh, and on a different note I saw who will be doing the opening of the new TV show ‘Better Call Saul’ and it’s Junior Brown and I could not thing of a better person to do the opening song because he is amazing! If you don’t know anything about him you should youtube some of his stuff because his is amazing!

I’ve been taking my vitamins all week and I’ve been doing what I need to do and the gallon jug has been gone each day so I figured this message was appropriate. What do you think?

 Appreciation Week

Throughout this week of appreciation we get a ton of goodies and this time they surprised us with some gourmet candy apples from Candies On Main and they had so many to choose from but I got the chocolate covered carmel with almonds because Greg has never had a candy apple and I wanted to share with him. We had it this weekend and it was pretty good so we may look at some more items from them in the future.

 Appreciation Week

Every year we get a special gift from the company and one year it was a rollaway suitcase that has come in handy a few times but I don’t travel a lot. We have also seen items like coolers, outdoor game seats, blankets and more but this year we got the best item ever (in my opinion) a black zip up hoodie! In case you don’t know..I love my hoodies so this is something I will use often.

 Appreciation Week

Oh, did I mention that when Greg goes grocery shopping he loves to take pictures if items I can’t have and send them to me?!?! He does it all the time!

 Appreciation Week

He said that he had the apple carmel cupcakes in his shopping cart and put it back at the last minute. I bet it would have been really good if he would have kept it.

 Appreciation Week

He did get chicken and let me ask you…have you even seen chicken this big before? How in the world did they keep this in the package?!?!

 Appreciation Week

Guess who added me as a friend on Instagram?!?! Only my favorite apple picking place ever!!!! I love Baughers in every way possible because they do more than just apple picking because they have picking all year long and the people are friendly and they also have the best restaurant ever.

 Appreciation Week

This week I saw that my competition trainer Jerry Ward had some of his breast cancer shirts for sale so I purchased one today and I can’t wait to rock it in the gym!

On Saturday I worked some overtime and I used a bathroom that I don’t normally use during the week and I found spray deodorant and I’m not sure how I feel about that.

 Appreciation Week

Going back to Friday I did an Appy Friday app review for FrontBack and it’s a social media site that allows you to take a picture from both the front and back camera almost at the same time and it’a available for both apple and android devices. If you want to check out the review I will leave a link to the video review below.
