Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Save Some Money Any Way You Can
INTERESTING TIPBITS (ha ha instead of tidbits--Okay, I apologize, it is late, I'm punchy and I just thought it was silly).
Save money by choosing the cheaper fonts. This little piece of tippage I picked up from Shop Smart Mag. The Shop Smart engineers printed 27% more pages per ink cartridge by using 12 point Times New Roman font rather than Arial (which kind of stinks because I love Arial). Calibri is also listed as an ink saver.
Ladies here is a little makeup tip that I don't believed I have shared though I have known about it for ages. Did you know that Lancome is owned by L'Oreal? Also Jane is owned by Estee Lauder. So if you are fond of those more expensive brands and are interested in saving a little cash, this is a great way to go. I have gotten to the place where I exclusively use L'Oreal's foundations rather than the more expensive brands (I have VERY sensitive skin and they never give me a problem). I have also heard that L'Oreal owns Maybelline as well, but I am pretty fond of the L'Oreal products themselves. Make that buying decision even smarter by taking advantage of coupons. You can find many coupons for L'Oreal products in your Sunday paper, and quite often you can get buy 1 get 1 free deals at drug stores like Walgreen's or CVS on L'Oreal which will make that makeup purchase an even better bargain. Try them out.
I try to share an interesting website whenever I can. Today I thought I would share Glyde with you. Glyde is a sale site where you can sell your books, DVDs, games, iPods, tablets and phones. Of course you can also go there to purchase the item. Basically it works like this, you post your items for sale, you pay Glyde 12% of the first $100 and then 8% on the rest and for the mailer. When a person purchases your item, Glyde sends you the mailer, you mail the item, and when the buyer receives the item, you get the money credited to your account. It is a very simple and easy way to make some money with those items that you have around the house that you probably don't use. I know we have often bought DVDs that we just had to have, and then find that we NEVER watch them. Check out Glyde and learn more at the link below. OHHHH! I forgot, if you get friends to sign up for Glyde, you can get $2 for every friend that makes a purchase. Of course don't refer someone just to make the referral money. Check out Glyde for yourself. It has been written up by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, as well as Forbes.
I have no idea how long this will last. So click right away for your free issue of Better Homes And Gardens Magazine as well as a free Best Loved Cookies Cook Book. There is no requirement to purchase anything else. After you give your information, you are given the opportunity to subscribe for $5, but again, it is not required. Your issue is free...period. So hurry up and click on the link below. These kinds of offers always go fast.
While supplies last sign up for a free sample of PepPod energy drink tablets. Drop them into water for a boost of energy. I read about these little gems at EDJunkie (they love energy drinks and review them and you can read all about it at their link). Follow the link below to request your sample and even suggest to a friend.
If you are a coffee lover like myself, then you are totally going to want to jump on a chance for a free coffee. Today, September 29th is National Coffee Day, and Krispy Kreme donut shops are offering free 12 oz cups of their House Blend Coffee. Follow this link to hear (well it is actually a video so see may be more appropriate) all about it.
Another code that I am not sure will be along for long is a code for $2.00 in Amazon MP3 credit. Follow the link below and put FALLMP3S in the code box after clicking on the yellow "Enter Your Code" button.

Hubby portraying pomposity (not a word...I think)
Because IHEART RADIO STINKS IMO
Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
