She will be here soon...

Pin It Now!

Who will be here you ask?  Well if you look at a weather map right now she is hard to miss!  I am talking about Hurricane Irene.


Have I ever mentioned I live in Southeast Virginia....  *sigh*  Living in a coastal area as I have all my life, you get used to hurricanes coming and going.  Honestly I don't usually pay attention to potential hurricanes that may hit us because more times than not, they veer off East into the ocean.  I have to admit Irene has my attention, and has for days.  I did my shopping yesterday; stocking up on bottled water, canned veggies, tuna, and peanut butter.  Tomorrow's objectives include filling both trucks with gas, filling my grandmom's car with gas, catching up ALL of my laundry *faint*, and getting everything off of the garage floor (our garage floods).

I plan to update everyone via twitter, and blogging HOPEFULLY as long as the cell towers are online!  Thank goodness for my iphone!  I put out a call on twitter earlier asking if anyone wanted to ship me a Verizon Ipad2 so I could be more accessible during and after the storm, but funny enough no one jumped at the chance.  Go figure!  ;)

You know that sad thing is that there has been a raging fire in the Dismal Swamp, so the words "smoke cloud" are a normal part of our forecast for the last few weeks, then we have the earthquake the other day...NOW we have Irene to deal with.  UGH.

Is anyone else in Irene's path?  If so PLEASE be careful, and keep us all updated as much as possible!!  Stay safe everyone!!

My biggest little tip...

>> Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Pin It Now!

Ok so I admit it, I am a water snob...I don't like tap water, and only will drink certain bottled water. My favorite water for the last year or so has been Smartwater. I really do love it, and the fact that it has electrolytes added, just makes it better...My biggest problem was that this cap....

...is the best cap ever, however, it only comes on the smaller bottles. Seriously, I don't know what the deal is with this cap, but I drink SO much more water using one than just drinking from the bottle. After a while of buying the smaller bottles 2 at a time instead of one big bottle (just for the cap) I made the life changing realization that the necks on all of the Smartwater bottles were the same size!! That means that I could unscrew this top, and screw it on even the 1.5liter bottles like this...
TADAH! :D Ok so maybe that wasn't Earth Moving for everyone, especially if you aren't a Smartwater drinker, but I have shared this little tip with a few people and always get a response of shock and amazement. ;) Happy water drinking!!

Guess Where I'm Going!

The Relevant Conference: I'm Going!

Guess what I just got in my e-mail...a shiny new ticket to The Relevant Conference, that's what!  I can't tell y'all how excited I am to be going!  I was quite disappointed that I missed the opportunity to buy a ticket this year, however added my name to the waiting list and said a prayer.  I REALLY wanted to go, but on the other hand I knew that if it was God's will, then it would happen.  I have yet to buy my train ticket, or book a room (anyone still looking for a roommate??  ;D  ), but just having the ticket puts a HUGE smile on my face!

Let me know if you are going to be there, I would LOVE to meet some of y'all!  :)

Trying a few new things

Pin It Now!





Hey y'all, I thought I would make a quick post trying out a few new things! First off, I am using an iphone app called BlogPress to type this up and publish it. Secondly, I am using my shiny new apple wireless keyboard to type. :) I LOVE being able to actually type a document on my phone, and it also works with my macbook pro, and will work with an apple ipad2...if I ever get one. :D The picture is from the fireworks tonight at Busch Gardens. We REALLY do love it there! Enjoy!
