Giving Him Something He Can Feel - En Vogue

All I can say is BAD CHICKS! I think every guy, if he wasn't already, fell in love with En Vogue while watching this video lol. Those were definitely some talented vocalist though. I miss them! There is one part around the 3:27ish mark where this one guy with short dreads is jammin' like this was a pop song and I used to fall out laughing back then and I still fall out laughing when I see that LOL!

StandOut Ads - Human Meat

One word...Disturbing! Still not enough to convince me to be a vegan though...

If you cannot read the label, it says:

"Billions of animals are abused and violently killed because you eat meat. Get help! Visit"

No No No Part 1 & 2 - Destiny's Child

Throwback! We all know Destiny's Child used to be poppin' back in the day and yes it is old school for us 80s babies! I remember when I was a counselor at the YWCA camp, the girls put together a dance to this song and it was so cute LOL! I can still see it in my head. I miss those girls, one was named Shayla and I still have a painting she made for me and this was like 10-11 yrs ago...awww. 

A few things though. How old were they in this video? I feel like those red dresses were a little much for them as young GIRLS. Also, I forgot Immature was in this video! Lastly, does anyone else feel like this is a bite off the EnVogue - Givin Him Something He Can Feel video? Seems veeeeeery similar. I like the faster (part 2) version better so I included that as well. Enjoy!

Bad Habits, How Many Of Us Have Them?

Friends, How many of us have them...

Yall remember this song? I am probably not old enough to, but I do lol. It is one of those songs that survived multiple generations. Well, it has nothing to do with this post, it just gave me the idea for the title so I decided to share it with you all lol.

So to the real point of this post...Bad Habit!

I have so many I don't even think I can count them all. Some are no big deal and if I never change them, I could care less. It is those other more severe ones that I feel I need to do something with before it ruins my life any further.

There is one particular bad habit I have that I realized the other day was killing me. I can NOT, if my life depended on it, put stuff back where they belong! Like if I take a book out to look at it and I am done with it, it will stay where I am at for days, even weeks! What is so hard about getting up and putting it back on the shelf?! This is a big issue for me because 1 thing not returned to its rightful place turns into 2...6...7...10 things not in their correct place and now your house looks a hot mess!

They say if you do something for 21 days straight, it becomes a habit. So I decided to challenge myself and for 21 days, starting tomorrow, if I take something out of its place, I shall put it back when done! So coats shall be returned to coat closet when I get in the house even if I am "going back out". Those pair of scissors I took out of the drawer to cut that box...BACK IN THE DRAWER! I can do it!

I now challenge all of you to figure out what a bad habit of yours is and make a vow for the next 21 days to break it. Comment below and let us know what that habit is.

We can do it!

"25 Pounds" - Update!!!

Back in December I started a journey with you all called "25 Pounds". If you missed the kick-off, check it out here. I had shared with you all that I was 175lbs and that I had a goal to lose 25 pounds. I did not put a time constraint on when I planned to lose those 25 pounds by, I just plan to do it PERIOD!

As some of you that know me already know, I had surgery on Jan 5th and have not been able to really work out. I even gained 16 pounds right after my surgery from bloating and swelling! You KNOW I was devastated! However, I knew it wasn't permanent. In about 1 weeks time after surgery, all of the bloating and swelling, along with those 16 pounds it came with was gone...PHEW! So I was back to 175 and ready to get down and dirty!

Without being able to exercise, good eating habits were VERY important to me. I tried to use what I learned in Weight Watchers and eat healthy portions, foods that are good for you, and tried to avoid the "I snack all day because I sit in the house all day" syndrome. This allowed me to maintain 175 for a few weeks without gaining weight and I was super happy. We alllll know what sitting at home eating and sleeping can do to a female's figure!

Well, enough with dragging you all along on a string. I know what it is you all want to know! So here it is. I am going to tell you now. Like right now....

Manilla - Product Review

Hey guys! This next product review is actually something you do not have to go out and's FREE! It is called Manilla and is an online account and bill organizer! I saw this on the blog of the awesome Double Saving Divas today and I signed up myself to give it a try. 

I love it already. For all of you technology people, it is a good tool just to get all of your eggs in one basket and off the paper. You add different accounts you have like Paypal, Avis Wizard Program, Progress Energy, and Bank of America and it links to the account showing you what your account balances are, when bills are due and in how many days, as well as, how many point on your rewards program!

Of course it isn't all inclusive and there were a few companies not featured, but I feel like it will grow and soon have it all! It linked to my Groupon account and I could see what coupons I had waiting for me. It also linked to my magazine subscriptions showing their expiration dates! You can also view and print paperless statements from the company with ONE click. I myself have ATT Uverse and I was able to view my current statement directly from Manilla. I think this is super cool. 

Sometimes it is nice to have it all in one place, REAL-TIME, without logging onto a million accounts just to update your homemade budget spreadsheet to figure out what is due and when. Also, all of those rewards programs can get hard to keep up with. I myself added my Best Buy, Avis, Marriott, US Airways, and Hilton Honors accounts and now on one page I can see my points for all of those accounts.

For all of you smartphone owners, you can even manage it on the go. I love finding new ways to manage all of these online accounts I have and I plan to give it a test run for a few months and see where it goes. 

So try it out, leave a comment below, and let us know what you think!

Thanks again Double Saving Divas!

You're Invited! Chicken Pox Party!...Ummmm Ok

So I was reading this article on ABC News website and was completely disgusted! Parents actually order lollipops called "Pox Pops" that children with the chicken pox have LICKED in order to expose their children to chicken pox. They say that it controls when their children get it. I also heard about "Pox Parties" where parents throw parties and invite healthy and sick children to expose the kids to the chicken pox.

I personally think both of those are gross and reckless. I know that it is better for your child to get it young, but really? Do we have to go this far? There are actually Facebook groups dedicated to these crazy acts and the members are growing exponentially! You can actually find a party in your area to send your kids to. I personally get the heebie jeebies when I think of a bunch of sick kids in one place breathing all my good air...gross!

Doctors are trying to spread the word that sending infected lollipops through the mail is dangerous AND Illegal! When you expose your child to these licked pops, you do not know what other diseases that child is carrying and now you have exposed your child! It is also a federal crime to send diseases and viruses through the mail...ANTHRAX SCARE PEOPLE!!! They said you can get up to 20 years sentenced for doing this. It just isn't worth it. Just take your child to Chuck E. Cheese a few times a month!

Like I said, SICK!

What do you think about this?

You A Bad Mutha...SHUT YO MOUTH!

What did she say?!

That is the question a lot of parents say when they hear those not so nice words come out of their children's mouth.

It has always been funny to me how some parents will cuss up a storm around their kids, but then want to beat them when they start repeating them. A lot of parents will say that they don't want their children cussing, it is for adults only and they are not old enough. Others think it is dare I say...CUTE! Those are the ones who recorded it and put it on You Tube.

I think about all of those kids who get in trouble in school for cussing when they are just doing what they know. It is hard to tell a kid "honey I know I cuss, but you cannot do it too". Kids, especially at very young ages are sponges and soak everything up. It is harder for them to cut cussing on and off depending on where they are at like some adults do. Cuss at home, but not at work or church...

This is not about whether I approve of cussing around your children or not, I am just curious as to YOUR opinion on the following:

- Should parents cuss around their children if they don't want them doing it too?
- Is there an age where it is appropriate for your kids to start cussing?
- Should parents cuss around their kids PERIOD?

Let us know what you think!

StandOut Ads - Nikon S60

LOL! I don't even know if this should be funny. If you cannot read the caption on the bottom of the ad, it says "The Nikon S60 Detects up to 12 faces"...

Hint: Look for the yellow dotted face recognition boxes throughout the photo...
