Baring The Piggies With Freeman Beauty #BAREFOOTbliss


Eeek!

I'm gonna bare it all. 

My most private of parts. 

The thing I've been teased about my whole life....................


MY TOES!!!
(it's true, they've been called eggrolls, sausages, munchkin feet, my whole life, sniff, sniff)




































I love the summertime, getting to wear sandals, hanging out shoeless in the parks and sand = #BAREFOOTbliss, but UGG, my feet sure suffer the consequences.

Honestly, after having three kids in the past four years, the last thing I take time to take care of is my feet. I simply don't have the time.

Well, today that changed. 

I splurged and took a whole 4 minutes, while my kids were playing in the backyard to give my toes a little TLC with two NEW Freeman Beauty Barefoot Spa Professional products. 


#1. Barefoot Exfoliating Polish

- Not too harsh, with a nice blue, sparkling hue. I've started keeping this tube of polish in my shower for a quick rub down of my calloused feet, but what's great is that it works on the whole body as an exfoliant as well! 

#2. Barefoot Moisturizing Massage Cream

- Mmm, now this feels like luxury. After scrubbing down my toes I lathered on some of this massage cream, and it's amazingly not greasy but felt like it was moisturizing my thirsty feet. 


See, it didn't take more than 4 minutes, and all while I was watching my kiddos play in the yard. 

Now, who can say you don't have time for a little #BAREFOOTbliss TOE TLC!

My favorite part was the spa fragrance, was mellow and not too flowery or overpowering, very relaxing, which is exactly what I needed today.

Now, cross your fingers....or ahem...toes...that this post, which I'm entering in a Freeman brand challenge #contest gets me in the top 25 to win a prize!

No More Boring Milk For Kids - Cow Wow Organic Milk


It's back to school time, which means packing LUNCHES!

Ugg, right?

It doesn't have to be so boring, when you find fun products to throw in the lunch box for the kiddos, like Cow Wow Organic Milk!


































As you can clearly see, my kiddos dug this stuff.

My 2 year old who is still struggling with not being able to nurse, since I'm breastfeeding baby #3, is really enjoying her Chocolate Chip Cathy as an alternative to whining and asking to nurse multiple times per day. 

When she asks to nurse, I offered "How about some Cow's Milk from the fridge?" and so far it's been working! 


Cow Wow is organic, naturally flavored low-fat milk that tastes pretty much exactly like the milk that's left in your bowl after you've enjoyed your favorite breakfast cereal! 

FLAVORS
  • Fruity Trudy - tastes like you've just enjoyed some fruit loops
  • Chocolate Chip Cathy - think cocoa crisp
  • Cinny Minny - my favorite - like cinnamon toast crunch or life cereal

...just 6 grams of added sugar isn't so bad and with only 3-5 ingredients (all of which I can pronounce, ahem) I can easily feel good letting my kids indulge a bit in some flavored milk! 

Get Hooked Up & In With Cow Wow

Saying In Touch With Bestie With BuzzWorthy #TrendyCards



It's true. I still love giving and getting greeting cards. 

My husband thinks cards are dumb.  Well, that's his excuse anyway when he forgets to grab me one on my birthday or anniversary. Right?

One of the things I totally love about my bestie girlfriend in Connecticut, is that she loves cards as much as I do!  



Since moving to Texas, 5 years ago, my best buddy (in Connecticut) and I like to keep in touch by sending each other cute cards now and then.

Well, cards and late night wine chats, of course. What? You've never heard of wine chats?

Well, that's when we both pour ourselves a glass of wine, and dial each other up on Face Time, pretending not a thing has changed since I moved away.  

It's the best.



#shop, girlfriends


Even though I love shopping at Hallmark Stores for my cards, I always feel like my kids are gonna break something while we're there - so I prefer to pick up my greeting cards at good ol' Walmart. 

It's not hard during my weekly grocery shopping trip to divert to the card aisle for a second to grab something I know will put a smile on my best buddy's face.

Lately, however I've been feeling like I keep seeing the same cards over and over - and secretly hope that I haven't sent her a duplicate card yet. 


#shop funny greeting cards

Thanks to #CollectiveBias, I just found out about this line of Hallmark cards, that rotate every few weeks to keep up with the current internet memes, trends, etc. 

This way, the humor is totally fresh and, well, BuzzWorthy!


I found this one card about lawn chairs and waffle patterns on your butt, which is absolutely perfect for my girlfriend - since we're always talking about sitting on porches growing old together someday. 


#shop greeting carsd


Since the content is always changing, just like our lives, now I'll never risk the chance of sending the same card twice. 

My girl is gonna love this one:


"I get my summer glow from a bottle......It's called Chardonnay." 

Hee, hee. We've shared many a "summer glow" together, back before the kiddos were born! 


#shop location walmart


I found the BuzzWorthy cards in two places at Walmart - #1. on the end of the aisle (pictured above) and #2. in a section with a big "FUNNY" sign on the regular card aisle. 

....and dang....

For $2.97 you can't do better for a funny, RELEVANT, humorous card! 

#shop





Hold on. This card was only $1.97. Not too shabby!


Plus, you can get Hallmark Rewards for every 5 cards you purchase! 

Hey, that's only one card for each person in my immediate family, I could rack up points pretty quick!


#shop greeting cards, walmart




























Now if you'll please excuse me....

I have a friend to surprise with two of these cheeky cards!
