An exciting day!!!

3 Apr

Well the end of it was, the beginning was awful. I felt terrible and exhausted this morning and thus had to drag myself out of bed and to work today.  As the day went on and I got more busy I noticed it less and less. By the time I got home I had got a second wind.

It probably also helped that I wore a very summery dress and that put me in a happier mood.

After work when I went to the mailbox I was so happy to see this!!!


Yes I did cover my address with my very pretty finger/nail polish. What was in the box?!?!


I received this item from Klout.com and their perks program. I was so excited that I qualified for this perk and cannot wait to use and review it. Has anyone tried the wireless MP3 walkman before? It is much different than the one I had back in the day (1996). I cannot wait to run (mostly walk with Baby K that is.) and then review this item. If you want some cool freebies check out their site and add me as an influencer I will add you back (Alexandra Karnolt) incase you didnt already know that. I qualified for this due to my scores in health and running! The real perk is if these things made you as fast as Meb is ;).

After that is it was time for some family dinner action at Grandmas.


Lasagna and salad PERFECTION!!!!

After that we all watched some TV and then it was 9pm so I was of course exhausted!!

Dan and I headed home and since we had cleaned out the Nursery last night he decided it was time to paint. We also got Finny in there to hang out, we are pretty sure it was his first time going in there, and we will eventually get him a bed just for that room as he will certainly have a new best friend to snuggle and watch out for!

I had to get a before shot, this picture doesnt do this awful color justice but it is like an electric navy blue and AWFUL! After pictures will go up when the crib and dresser are in.


Im not sure what is in that tote and the dresser is some of Dans things but that will be going into the hall. The white spots are spackle these walls were BEAT UP! Baby K is pretty lucky to have a house with central air AND a ceiling fan, I did not have that as a baby/young child!!!!

So that was my day. Not too interesting but give me a break I have felt terrible but I made the best of it because in the end it is all worth it for our little baby!!!!

Product Review: Proxi Products!

7 Jul

So as you readers of the blog know I am on Klout and have got a Perk from them already. Last week I received my second Perk and was not at all disappointed! This was what I got from Proxi…. all the products are GREEN and include natural ingredients.

Dishwashing Pods, Toothpaste and Body wash! Plus two dollar off coupons and of course the disclosure….so here that is before we get to the good stuff!

Klout Influencer disclosure

I was given a free product or sample because I’m a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

Ok now that is all set here we go! I was so excited the day I received the sample  because I had done a lot of cooking the two days before and it was the perfect opportunity to clean dishes with them! Plus I was surprised it was a full size bag of them as a sample!

I would usually never show anyone this but it is for bloggings sake!

Those pods rocked those dishes without the chemicals and were my favorite out of the three samples! The pouches they came in were very thin and natural, and seemed like it took much less water to break them down in your dishwasher than say the cascade ones on the market! I loved them!!!!!

Now onto the Body wash, a great light but refreshing smell of cucumber and green tea. Felt great on and kind of fizzed, I really loved the fact that after you were done and it was washed off I felt really clean without my skin feeling dried out! My other body washes seem like they are built for smell, this one is built to clean and make you smell great as well!

Finally the tooth paste this was a travel size while the other two were full size. That may have been its downfall, it tasted good and has the same fizzing quality as the body wash, so my mouth felt clean. However the mint taste was not very strong I could still taste morning breath when I was done and that was not pleasant! However after a second brushing I was good to go! *Note I did and always do brush my tongue each brushing…if you dont Gross and you should….but know I still love you no matter what :).

So again I am so thankful to Klout and Proxi for the products and I will continue to purchase the pods and body wash for sure!

I am not sure where the product is available and it may only be in the Tri-State area, as the perk was only available to influencers in CT, NY and NJ. If not buy it online….it is worth it for sure and you will love them!

Reset Day 3 Do Over and Free Samples.

11 Jun

I decided that since I had such a tough time on Day 3 the first time, and since I was a bonehead who left my supplements for the reset at work Friday, that I would re-do day three, and start from here on. This go was much more successful! Breakfast was the same as Day 1.

Eggs, steamed spinach and whole wheat toast! YUMMY!

Lunch was a salad and a lentil and lime salad. This was so good, I had balsamic dressing. It was very filling though!

I couldnt even finish it all! I was also drinking massive amounts of water today, so that may be why I was feeling so full!

Dinner was supposed to be a veggie sushi roll, cucumber salad and miso soup. After the soup however I was way too full to even attempt to make anything else!

Finally I know I literally painted my nails yesterday but….

You see I got this nail polish for FREE!

Thank you Klout.com! I joined and thanks to my blog and other internet usage I have a high influencer rating which means I get perks! I signed up to receive a free sample of Essie’s Summer 2012 collection! I was so excited today when this was in my mailbox!

I was so happy to get anything! I know I will never have a big time blog where big companies like Nike and Saucony or Food companies send me samples or clothes, etc. So this is wonderful! I figured I would get a mini size but it was a full bottle!

I love Essie, it goes on so smoothly and has great coverage! It was my wedding polish as well. I was also so happy to get the Blue, named Bikini So Teeny! My bikini I bought for Mexico is the same blue and it is a super fun and happy color!!!! I will probably end up buying more colors. But getting a free bottle when it is an $8.00 price tag is always great!!!!

DISCLOSURE: The product sample was sent to me I am under no obligation to talk about the company and get no additional benefits for doing so I just love Essie!!!
