I have to send a shout out to the wonderful Jolene @ Every Day Foodie.  I won a giveaway on her site a few weeks ago, and got the delicious package last week…


Amazing grass, larabar, Burts Bees lip balm, peanut butter, hemp seeds, a face and hair mask , an AMAZING coconut bar (SO AMAZING) and a $25 gift card to Chapters… which I got this book with!!  (SO EXCITED about this book!) I can’t wait to test out all the goodies in this book!!

arfe2 So sending a HUGE thank you to Jolene for this amazing package! 


Also the lovely Kris from I Heart Wellness gave me a BLOG AWARD!


There are some Rules and Guidelines for this Award:

1. Thank the beautiful person who presented you with this award

2. Tell 7 things about yourself

3. Pass the award on to 10 bloggers who you have recently discovered, and think are fantastic!

So here it is……….

1. I am a reality TV junkie – Real Housewives, Hell’s Kitchen, ANTM, Bachelorette… love them!!

2. I used to run… I’ve done a 10km, 8km and a few 5km races.  I am SUPER slow, but I did it!!  Now I need to find the inspiration to get back to it again.

3. I am an only child.  Sometimes I wish I had a brother or sister, but then I turn around and think I would be completely happy having 1 baby!

4.  I bought my own condo when I was 27.  It was super cute.  Stainless steel appliances, gorgeous mountain view and funky updates.  I still own it, but rent it out to an awesome tenant!

5. I have been working with kids and special needs kids/adults for over 12 years.  (Besides Dave) It’s the love of my life!  I feel like I come alive around kids!!  It’s a very easy/natural job for me!!

6. I LOVE getting emails!  I check my email a million times per day, just in case I get a good one!! (Facebook too)

7. I broke my front tooth 2 times.  It’s still not fixed properly and drives me crazy, especially in pictures.  But I am trying to embrace it as me.  (Just hoping I can do some photo shopping to my wedding photos)

Now onto 10 bloggers, I love!!!!!!

  6. congrats on your book...you are going to LOVE THAT BOOK!!!!! i read mine like a novel LOL

    and your award, amazing facts and amazing girls you passed it onto. I know most of them!

    hair color. it's called high lift color. it's basically going to be able to do almost what bleach can do in terms of lifting/blonding you, but not using bleach. way safer for your hair and you are already so light, it will lift up in a snap for you. ask your stylist for it. They will try to tell you bleach is better, blah blah, but high lift just saves my hair from being too processed!

  7. your list is so fun, i love learning fun facts about people! and i'm the same way with my personal email...i love hearing from people :)

  8. Awww, thanks girlie!!!!! You are too sweet! I will post the award on my blog in the next couple of days and link back to you! I think you are fabulous as well and we would DEFINITELY be friends in "real life!" Wish we lived closer!!!!!!!!
