Blogging Hiatus

Sorry for the reprieve, but, between busy holiday weekends, my j.o.b., and lack of bloggy mojo, I have been away. I hope all of you are great (we are doing awesomely). I will begin to catch up with my bloggy friends soon and catch y'all up on the BAMS and the girls I heart.

I also want to say that the winner of the super cutey shoes(using and applying the "credits" to each of you accordingly) is ........................

BECCA at Deatons in Hong Kong

Go visit her and tell her how happy you are that she won these great little shoes ;) These shoes will potentially be walking all over hong kong and the coolness that is that city!

Bec, I will be contacting you with the Bugaloo contact information.

Now, back to your regularlly scheduled blogging......

Bugaloo Giveaway 4 U

i heart 2 girls was approached to do product review by the cutest. shoe company. ever.

I haven't done a product review on purpose (since mami skincare)even though I have been approached before. I wanted to make sure I would be able to love it and scream it from the rooftops. I happen to think that these shoes are really really cute, well made, fashionable, affordable and did I mention CUTE!

This review will be straight from the horse's (or pony's rather) mouth.....

These shoes are cute, comfortable, and they do not slip off of me. I have yet to lose one. They hold steadfast to my fat little feet, yet, come off easily with precise movements from my mom.

They are easy, cute (notice the details?), and cost way less then R......z. Shame on those people for charging so much for their shoes. These are also leather, with the characters being just as cute (if not cuter), but for much less. So many styles and colors schemes to choose from too.

Here I am feeling them out. Yep, leather, and sturdy.

I walked around and they really felt nice on the soles of my feet and with my size WW pillowy foot, it was nice to not have any straps or buckles digging into me. Did I mention the inside of the shoe is lined? (nodding) lined.

Now, if that wasn't enough to make you all go out and buy them, I want to tell you what Bugaloo does with 5% of each purchase. It is donated to the International Justice Mission, an agency that secures justice for victims of child slavery.

Oh and I forgot to mention that if you buy three pairs you get FREE SHIPPING! Even internationally.

Soooo, you get the gist right? We love the shoes. And you now want a pair, right?

Welllllllllllllllllllll, I can hook you up!

Bugaloo is giving away one pair of shoes for one of my readers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, you read can win a freeeeee pair!

Here is how...........

So what we are going to do is 1. the website viewing. Come back and tell me which adorable shoe was your favorite and what size you will be needing that in. That move will get you ONE entry. If you are already a follower or become one, you get TWO entries and if you blog about my contest on your blog, then you'll get a whopping FIVE entries.

I will be using and choosing a winner in one week and a day. Tuesday, May 26th.

Have fun and good luck :)

Massage, Mani/Pedi and an MRI

You read right. M. R. I. Magnetic Resonance Imaging. I had one this morning. Not for anything too scandalous, just to figure out the vertigo I have been feeling as of late. (the above picture is not of me, even though, I did need to go get my facial hair waxed).

It. was. fabulous. I know I sound psychotic, but, I have not been this relaxed in a long time. After the prep, it was all smooth sailing.

I removed my nose ring, earrings, and ring ring. I was covered with a nice cozy and soft blanket and I had to lay completely still on this sliding table thingee. My forehead was strapped down and was instructed to "not move, or breathe too deeply". If I moved, they would have to start again. I was told the first one would be for 25 minutes and then they would pull me out of the machine and inject me with gadolinium (a contrast material to help see the issues better) and then put me back in for ten. I was then handed ear plugs to help keep the noises that whirr around you lowly. Finally, I was handed this button to press if I completely wigged out.

I asked all of the pertinent questions 1. "well when you say move do you mean like move move?" he answered, "if you need to move, you can move your big toe, slightly", 2."can I blink?" he answered "softly", 3."What if I need to cough?" he answered "swallow gently", 4."an itch?" he answered "tough titties" (he really didn't), he said I would have to "weigh out the consequences of scratching", 5."how long is this going to be again?" 25 for the first one, injection then 10", 6. "will it hurt?" he said "no". Then he asked "ahem, can we get started"?

Strapped in, arms crossed (with panic bulb in them), feeling cozy, we started. I immediately closed my eyes and started to hear all sorts of noises. They were like humming, knocking and low vibrations. Can you say "sleepy time". I was being shushed to sleep. I knew I didn't want to sleep b/c of the fear of snoring or twitching or moving but I also knew I could be alert and waiting b/c the 25 minutes would drag on. So I hovered in the weirdest, most relaxing little place. I let my mind float around and I ran through all sorts of lists and situations and scenarios. I watched my breathing but allowed myself to go from thought to thought. It was quiet, cool, I was still. It was so relaxing. After becoming a mother, these moments are so few and far between. Listen to how relaxed I was that he peers in to the machine and says to me, "I will be pulling you out now but DO NOT MOVE. I will inject you and place you back in". I didn't answer him or nod or really anything. I was pulled out, vein was found, needle put in, eyes tightened a smidgen, and I was placed right back into the vessel. 10 more minutes and voila, done. I was so relaxed. He said I did great and the pictures were "great and very clear". I was happy to hear. And relaxed.

So, next mothers day, ask for the mani/pedi/MRI special. If you're like me, you'll be happy you did.

Thousand Word Thursday (TWT)

Sorry for forgetting yesterday and thank you for reminding me!!!!! How could I forget one of my favorite activities throughout the week. When I started TWT in August of last year, I never thought it would get to be so much fun. You all are hilarious, and always have me chuckling, laughing or guffawing. You girls are creative, and each of you see something different. Anyhow, I digress.

It's always hard to find a picture b/c I am snapping all of the time. This week's was taken by Sarah, a friend of mine :)

You know what to do ;) Happy Thursday!!!!!
