Ben The Bachelor Is Boring It Seems

I have a question to ask all of you Bachelor fans out there?? Is it me or does this season seem to be the most boring ever? I wasn't really fond of him  last season on The Bachelorette with Ashley Hebert. He seems friendly and all but very boring!!. It seems like he has some walls up or something. I know after being let down at the alter last season was very tough on him and all, but common for gosh sakes. He has 25 attractive women in front of him( one's a bitch), and he seems like  dud!

Look at all of these hot mama's pictured in the photo here, and who does Ben seem to flock after? The crazy one that's who!! Her name would be Courtney, and she's friendly face to face with him, but behind his back, she is very immature and caniving. This is always what happens on these reality shows. The drama queens stay, and the good girls go home way to soon. It's all about ratings and I'm 100% sure of that! Heck, even a grandma came to the show with her granddaughter , they arrived on a horse also.

I think I would rather see Ben get hooked up with Grandma instead of some of the rest of the wanna bees. They all love Ben. They all want a rose. They all want to win his heart over, They all want more T.V. time, and they all want the big prize in the end which is Ben!! How many relationships seem to last these days from the Bachelor & Bachlorette? I can think of one, maybe two if you count the Douche Bag that picked his second choice after he humiliated the beautiful and lovely Melissa Rycroft on national television. She got the last laugh though. She has had so much good come her way since this including getting married, having a beautiful baby girl, and host talk shows, and now a show of her own. Not doing so bad is she?

Who ever he picks I'm sure will be happy. I would love to see him with Casey B. They make a nice match, but something is telling me that he will pick someone who isn't right for him. Don't just pick for looks Ben. Get the whole package if ya know what I mean. What are your thoughts about this boring season? Are you as bored to death as I am?? I much rather would have seen that cutie Ryan be the Bachelor, but oh well. It is what it is! I just can't wait for my Celebrity Apprentice and DWTS to start airing again, and I will be in heaven again. Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments too!!

Seneca Farms Oatmeal Review & Giveaway

Each morning you should start your day off with a nice balanced breakfast, and since I'm a huge breakfast person, and I was given the chance to try out this new oatmeal from Seneca Farms, I had to jump on it quick. I always have oatmeal in my house at all times. Myself, and my son love to eat oatmeal. Apple & Cinnamon is our favorite I had never sen or heard of an oatmeal coming in an already to eat cup like this. All you needed to do was zap it for a minute or so, and voila, your oatmeal is done and ready to be eaten! How cool is that??
One of the oatmeal's I received was the Cranberry Apple & Maple & Brown Sugar. I was a bit hesitant first about trying this at first , since it was already cooked and all it needed was to be warmed up, but much to my surprise, it was pretty darn good. I thought the cranberries would be tart, and ruin the taste a bit, but that was not the case at all. I have to give mad props to Seneca Farms for coming up with such an easy way to have breakfast, and a tasty breakfast also. If your in a hurry, this is your answer!

Seneca Farms Oatmeal is not only tasty, it is pretty affordable and
healthy to eat , as you can see by looking at the diagram on the right hand side. Each cup of Oatmeal has 1 gm of fat, less than 50mg of sodium, zero cholesterol and only 160 calories per serving. It makes you want more!!

Not only has Seneca Farms giving me the chance to try out their Oatmeal, but they are giving one of my readers a chance to win also. All you have to do is the Mandatory entry below. Leave your answer in the comment section below. This is an experiment I'm trying with Rafflecopter, so let's see how it works..

T.G.I.F. Friday The 13th !!!

It's Friday the 13th, Oh My!! What's planned on this Friday the 13th for you?? Are you superstitious ?? I think I am a bit!! I can't tell exactly when it started, but I know it was way back when, and I was out and about, and I was involved in an accident. It wasn't a bad accident, but it still happened, so all these years later , I have always been superstitious about going out anywhere on Friday the 13th!! What is your theory on this? Do you think bad things can happen on Friday the 13th?? I know they did to me many years ago, so I have always just stayed put at home, and I didn't have to worry about anything bad happening.

I have always enjoyed watching the Friday the 13th movies when Friday the 13th came around, which didn't happen often, but every now and then one would pop up. Do you like to watch scary movies with your family? I do, but some of them make me have nightmares for goodness sakes.. My son would always tell say "Mom, it's only a movie, and not real". I guess he was right.

Whatever you do on this Friday The 13th, have fun and be safe !!! Thanks for stopping by and giving me your thoughts on Friday The 13th. I always like reading comments from fellow bloggers. You guys are amazing!! Rock on !!! Feel free to check out my giveaways while your here. You never know what you might win.

Jenulence Makeup Review & Giveaway

Have you ever tried Mineral makeup before? I  recently came across this company called Jenulence.It is a family owned business which was founded in 2003. It is the place to go if you are looking for a great mineral make up. If your looking for that perfect all natural flawless look, matte & sheer coverage, then you have found that with Jenulence. Jenulence makeup is crafted by using synthentic free high quality natural minerals and cosmetic pigments. There are no synthetic preservatives, talc, nano-particles or micronized minerals in their mineral makeup. Jenulence Mineral Makeup is available for all skin tones, for both men & women to use and is hypoallergenic. Jenulence is water & sweat proof and will not clog your poors, and carries protection from the sun.

I was sent the Current Satin Mineral Blush above for review, along with Retractable Powder Brush which I loved, and is perfect to take along with you fits perfectly in my purse. I also received the Mineral Beige Neutral Foundation/Concealor, which definatley came in handy covering up brown spots I have on my face, but mostly helped out with the bags that I have under my eyes each and every day it seems like.

The Finishing Powder was my favorite item of all. This goes on after all of your makeup, and gives your skin a beautiful, translucent, smooth look, and is used for all skin types. It helps reduces wrinkles, and helps control oily skin by not drying it out. The Finishing Powder goes out smoothely, and gives you that look of perfection.

Sorry I've Been Missing In Action Lately

I want to apologize to my followers for me being missing in action lately. Giveaways are slow for me since the Christmas Holiday, but I'm trying hard to get some great products to review , and of course giveaway to you! Lately my hands have been full. I recently had to go to a funeral for a good friends Mom. She lived a lovely life , and was 86 at her passing. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease several years back, and fought right up until the end. She was such a wonderful lady, and will be missed terribly! It's so hard to console the family that just lost a very dear person. What does one say to them?

My mother has Alzheimer's Disease too, and let me tell you, it is one of the toughest things to watch someone you love go through. Alzheimer's Disease slowly attacks your brain, and you forget things as you go. Some people can deal with this for years and others have a shorter life. I pray to god each day and Thank god for giving me another day with Mom. It's hard to care for someone you love, but this is what god had planned for me I guess.

If I could have one wish it would be to have my mom back, the mom that raised me and taught me right from wrong, the mom that helped me when I was down, the mom that cared for me when I was sick, the mom that helped with me my school work. I know it's impossible for this wish, as this is the cards she was dealt. I do my best, spend as much time with her, but most of all, put a huge smile on her face! When she visits me , all she wants to do is hear Kenny Rogers, enjoy a nice cup of Java, and of course have a few oatmeal cookies. She knows all the words to his music to. I recently took her to see him in concert right before Christmas. She loved it!

Thanks for being the best followers ever. I will be back later on to post some more giveaways as they come. I have some great makeup for review & giveaway, so check back soon, it should be posted tonight or tomorrow. I hope the New Year is going well for you all. I wish you all the best of the New Year. May good things come your way, and of course good health for you and your family!! I'll be back soon with some intersting giveaways!!

P.S. If you didn't know it I'm a Pooh lover  & Eeyore too!!!

Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent Review & Giveaway- 2 Winners

Laundry Time is one of the chores I love to do the most in my house(Big grin) , so when I had the chance to try out the newest Purex Products , I jumped right on it. As part of being a Purex Insider, I am able to try all of the  newest products that will soon be out in the stores. I'm always happy when I receive my box marked Purex from my Fed Ex guy. I have been a long time user of Purex for years now. Not only is Purex one of the best laundry detergents around, it is also very reasonable in price. I usually stock up when i'ts on sale for $1.99 at my local supermarket. I always love when there is a new Purex product coming out too. I love the great smells that are available too!

Thanks to Purex, and as part of being a Purex Insider I was sent Purex Triple Action Mountain Breeze to review. I couldn't have been any happier. When my clothes were done they had this awesome smell to them, and they felt nice and clean. Purex is rolling out the new Triple Action Formula across the entire detergent line. The new and improved Triple Action formula delivers even better on Purex’s promise to leave your clothes bright, white, and clean, and as always, for half the price of the leading brand!

Over the past year our R&D scientists have been working hard to create an even better Purex formula. And not just a better formula, but one that will continue to deliver the value that Purex stands for. We’re mindful of our consumers’ pocketbooks, and we’re committed to bringing them a great product at a great value. The new Purex Triple Action formula is just that. It’s an even better clean, for half the price of the leading brand.

Not only is Purex Triple Action a favorite of mine, it also has a very nice scent to it, and this makes me want to do more laundry. It also comes in Free & Clean scent and is hypoallergenic.  You will see Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent in stores near you soon. What is a plus about it, is that it is specifically formulated to work in both traditional and High Efficiency (HE) washers. This ensures that Purex is always available to our consumers, no matter your type of washer.

What else is great about Purex is that I am able to give a few of my readers the chance to try Purex Triple Action. All you have to do is tell me what is your toughtest stain to get out of your clothes, and if you have ever tried Purex before? You must also follow me on GFC!!

Happy New Years To All !!

Hi Folks! I know it's a bit late, but better late than never I guess. I just wanted to wish all of my followers and friends a very Happy New Years!!! Did you do anything special this year to celebrate the New Year? If so, were you out , or did you stay home and have a party? I used to go out many moons ago, but when I became a mother, those days were long gone. I knew that I was safer at home with my family verses being out on the road. Being out on the road late at night when others are coming and going from bar to bar and house parties is not the smartest thing to do to me. If your having a party and people are drinking, then take the keys and have them sleep over. Atleast you know they are safe with you.

Each year I watch the news on New Years  Eve and day, and the cops talk about how many speeding tickets, DUI's , accidents, and if there was any fatalities. It pains me very much to hear when this happens. When I awoke this morning I had looked at the paper and the first thing I noticed was a car accident, with three people, and one who was ejected and killed,and the other two injured when their car hit a tree. This happen in the wee hours of the night. My heart just broke in pieces when I heard of this. I sank when I even thought of the parents getting that news. No matter how many times we tell our kids to make the right choices, they still like to be their own person, and make choices on their own.

On to resolutions for the New Years.. Did you make any, or will you be attempting to make any New Years resolutions? I usually do each year, but it always don't work out as I plan it. I will try my best with dieting this year,as I really need to shed some pounds since my back surgery. I pray that I have good luck with this. I also am going to think about me this year. I'm always the care taker and mother to everyone I know, and sometimes forget to care about my self. This year I will try and put myself first. I hope each and everyone of you have a terrific New Year. I hope lots of exciting things happen. I also hope for good health to you all. God Bless you, and have a very Happy New Years!!
