Life Lately (Post Vacation)

// I'm really looking forward to another long weekend full of food, family and lake time. Thank you Memorial Day for sneaking up on me.

// I gave a customer a refund for $150 when I was only supposed to give him $10. Lucky day for him! After doing so I cried like a baby and then I decided maybe that man really needed it and my mistake was a blessing for him.

// I like to hit snooze on my alarm clock 1,534,678 times and get up with 5 minutes to spare. So much for hair and makeup.

// Jon and I have been working out everyday together after work and I already feel a bagillion times better. We definitely need the energy booster with such a grooling schedule. You probably saw yesterday that Tone It Up is my workout plan of choice. Read more here and enter the giveaway to win a prize package!

// I was a part of the mug swap in February and I made a great new blogger friend out of it! I'm even more excited about the "Where I'm From" swap this month! Thanks to Kallie for putting all this goodness together. You should totally come join because A: who doesn't love receiving surprise goodies in the mail? B: Who doesn't need more girlfriends? To join in go here.

// I'm not sure if you've ever seen these candles before, but I got one for my birthday and needless to say I had it burned down and a ring on my finger in less than 24 hours. It's seriously the most thrilling gift I've ever received. I got a cheapy ring, which I'm sure they put in 99.999% of their candles, I'm ordering this candle next and crossing my fingers for a $5,000 ring because I'm a sucker.

// Next week is the hubs birthday. Why are men so hard to buy for? I mean I know I could easily go to Victoria Secret and buy something for myself that would be equally as pleasing for him, but that doesn't seem fair.

// I can't stop jamming to this song. It's on repeat in my head. Sorry hubs.

 
Happy weekend kool cats.

  1. I've heard of those diamond candles but I've never gotten one! The scents look amazing though so I might have to give it a try! :) I agree, men are super hard to shop for! Have a great weekend!

  5. Hey - my husband tells me to do just that for gifts for him - so go for it - win win for everyone!
    Good for you seeing a positive in the mistake in the refund. Pray it was a blessing that was MUCH needed. God works in funny ways.

  9. I LOVE THIS SONG, and I had never heard it before, but thanks to you I will be rocking out to it this weekend. Perfect lake cruising song if I do say so myself!! We'll be at the lake this weekend too! I joined the #whereimfrom swap too! Thanks for sharing it. :)

    When you burned your diamond ring candle down did it leave waxy residue all over the ring? That's what I would be worried about. HAPPY WEEKEND!

  10. Ooh gotta check out this mail/goodie exchange. Hopefully that guy needed the extra $140. Mistakes happen so no worries! Good job for working out, lady! Have a great weekend

  11. I want to try out those candles, but I keep forgetting about them. And good luck for shopping for your husband. Men are the hardest to buy for! Happy weekend!

  12. I did something similar with a gift card at work!! I tried to sell this lady a $50 gift card, but it wasn't working, so I tried it with another gift card and it went through. It turns out that there wasn't really anything wrong with the gift card itself--the system froze. It actually went through on the first gift card, but I handed the woman the second one and then she had a balance of $0.00, which she realized a few days later. Thankfully she was nice!! The other gift card was sold to a man who only put $10 on it and ended up with $60. We could track his activity and he spent it all really quickly rather than call in and question it. I hope that you didn't get in trouble or anything. We all make mistakes!

  13. Your morning routine sounds a lot like mine! I'm back in the gym too and feel so much better! Sometimes it's hard to get there, but I always feel better when I'm done :) I've always wanted to try one of those candles, now I may have to!
