Scentsy Giveaway!!!

I'm hosing my first giveaway!!!!! I am so excited! I am going to give one lucky winner a FREE Scentsy Room Spray! These are great for the car, the house, and anywhere you might want a quick spritz. They last forever, and one squirt is generally all you need.

Scentsy is a wickless, soot and lead free, completely safe candle. Wax is put into a warmer and a light bulb melts it. These are one of the only candles I have found that can make my entire house smell! I only use one cube in my warmer and can come home to a house full of one of my favorite scents! If you'd like to know more about the product, visit my site

Smile empty soul

"A smile is the universal communication between two people."

While running errands today, I noticed one thing in common at most stores ... grumpy people. It's almost Friday and it was a beautiful day outside but all these people were running around with their sad/grumpy face on instead of being happy. Maybe they had reasons to be under the weather or maybe they just constantly walk around in a state of disarray.

Well I was walking on clouds most of the day and smiled a few extremely grumpy looking patrons. To my surprise, they smiled back!

It is nice to see the power of a smile. I can remember time and again when I have been in a bad mood and a complete stranger graced me with a smile. Even if it didn't change my mood, it made me feel good at least for a few minutes.

So if you get the chance, smile at some of those grumpy people out there. It is well worth it!

Apple Angers Me

It's official... I am very irritated with Apple. My computer is still not fixed and I took it in on Saturday. There was supposed to be a 3-5 day turnover rate, and here we are on day 6 and still nothing.

I called today to get an update, and the man who answered the phone was a complete jerk. He basically told me it would be fixed when they called me. I'll be calling back tomorrow as well, because this is ridiculous.

No, I'm not some Internet addict that is going through withdrawals. Instead, I'm a college student that really really really needs her computer. I had a huge paper due on Monday, and had to borrow someone else's computer through the weekend just to get by. It really makes it hard to get homework done when you have no means to do so.

Anyways, I'm ending my venting. Sorry! I just needed to get a few things off my chest. I should probably get back to work right now, seeing as how I am using "company time for once."

Happy Thursday!

Kids say the darndest things

I have often heard that every girl should have a gay best friend. Well, I've had one for the longest time and while he is totally fun and amazing he has never once told me I look terrible in an outfit, my butt is too big, or that I'm getting fat. Maybe I picked the wrong guy to befriend, but at the same time he's always boosting my ego. I mean, who doesn't like an ego boost?

But after this weekend, I have decided that I don't need a gay best friend to tell me about my appearance. Instead I need a child (no I am not going to have one, just borrow one).

This weekend was tax free shopping weekend in Oklahoma. Parents and people where coming out from under the woodwork trying to buy clothes and not pay taxes. Granted it is only a little over 8%, but there are always a ton of sales that weekend also. I won't lie, I was one of those idiots buying school clothes for my siblings. I love them, and wanted to take advantage of the super deals. I spent $165 and saved $229. Can't beat that!

Anyways, back to the story. Well as I was walking in one of the stores I couldn't help but over hear this woman and her daughter. The woman was looking at some clothes and the daughter all of a sudden blurted out, "Look mom they sell leggings for fat people."

Sure children may not be able to match their own clothes, tie their own shoes, or even fix their own hair... but they will sure let you know when you look funny, get fat, or are even remotely different from what they are used to.

Something is in the water...

So instead of tap I am now only consuming bottled water. No, I am not trying to bring the world down one plastic bottle at a time (I do recycle), but instead I am trying to apparently avoid the baby disease. Don't get me wrong, I want a baby someday but today, tomorrow, next week is not that day.

Right now if you look around my office there are preggo's everywhere. You look at my Facebook page and there is always some announcement that someone is having a baby. Yes, I am happy for all these new ecstatic mother's but it's getting a little old. I mean did they decide that they were all going to get together and plot the next baby boom? We are still at war, wait until all the soldiers come home please. I guess everyone got spring fever if you know what I mean.

But like I said, I am now consuming only bottled products because there is obviously an outbreak going on. Congrats to all of the soon-to-be mother's out there though.

If bloggers wrote single's ads

I mean single followers friendship ads, yes friendship ads, I think it would go something like this:

20 something blogger seeking followers friends

Hello, I'm a 20 something blogger that is new to the blogging world. I'm not exactly sure what I am getting myself into, but I thought I would give it a shot. I have been blogging for two months and seek more friends in the blogosphere.

About my blog: I write mostly about the world I am surrounded in. Sometimes I talk about my day, other times I report on my awesome people watching skills, oh and I also blog about crazy events that happen across the world. I have a weekly feature on Wednesday's called Wordless Wednesday. Maybe you've heard of them? Basically I post a video or photo that often makes people laugh. Oh did I mention I also like comments? I love it when people leave me feedback. That's a great way to put a smile on my face.

Who am I looking for: I am looking for new friends that love to read and write comments on my blog. I don't want to sound narcissistic, but I think my blog deserves a lot of love, so I am looking for those who have a lot of love to give. I also would like someone that can write awesome posts for me to read and reply back to. I don't want boring people that don't stimulate me intellectually. While I don't require a person to blog on a daily basis, I'd really like them to post more than once every 3 months. I'd also like them to visit my blog somewhat regularly. Oh did I mention I like comments?

Old Lady Candy

Have you ever noticed that candy has certain stereotypes? I mean there are the nerds, candy ropes, and suckers that are generally associated with the children. The chocolate bars, reese cups, m&ms, and well anything with chocolate are always connected to women (especially during PMS). There is also the candy that is for the health enthusiast that generally includes Slim Fast bars, Weight Watchers candy, extremely dark chocolate, and energy bars.

And then there is the dreaded Old Lady Candy. You know, the candy that grandma always had in a dish. The candy you forced yourself to eat because it made grandma happy to give you some. Yes, there is definitely a stereotype with this candy.

Old lady candy usually consists of peanut patties, orange slices, ribbon hard candy, the disgusting flavors of salt water taffy (like licorice), random hard candies in a clear or colored wrapper with no name, and of course the sugar coated fruit drops.

I remember growing up and my grandma always had a dish of this random candy. It was always out, and it never got wrapped up or put away. Apparently candy had some sort of germ deterrent (kind of like soap). It never went bad, and the worse thing that happened to it was that it got hard if it was chewy.

She would always tell me there was candy in the bowl if I wanted something sweet. Even as a kid I tried to avoid this dish of old lady goodness. Unfortunately my avoidance never prevailed and I was forced in indulge in the old lady candy just to make my grandma happy.

The other day I was caught by surprise when I walked into my office. I got off the elevator and there it was... a bowl of old lady candy. This one had the random hard candies with no name. I couldn't help but laugh growing up and my grandma trying to convince me that these candies were delicious. Unfortunately, since we are all starving journalists the old lady candy doesn't stick around for very long, but nothing free ever does.

Man, what can't they just feed us m&ms?
