My sister fell in love at first sight with Jamberry Nails. Jamberrys are nail covers that have cute designs on them and make your nails look ever so pretty!! You can only buy them from direct sales, so I think she signed up to sell them before she ever even got to try them!! To be supportive, I went ahead and bought some, but didn’t think I’d really even like them or even put them on. I ordered a set and let them sit there for about two or three weeks. BUT, ever since I (finally) put my first Jamberry on, I’ve been obsessed with them!! I ended up having a party for her to help her out and that party sold so much Jamberry that I got several sets free AND I had the option of joining at half price!! She needed to get some recruits, so I figured I’d just go ahead and join to get the discount and to help her out. I never thought I’d actually try to sell. The first day I signed up, I thought I’d just throw it out there that if anyone wanted a party, they could be my guinea pig and I had a few people take me up on it. One party was successful and I ended up falling in love with not only the product, but the entertainment of throwing an online party! Now I’m hooked!! It’s totally like playing on the computer! I’ve been signed up for two weeks and I’ve already made back my money and then some!! I’m so excited.
I just found out that the company also has a trip incentive to Cancun next year! I totally think that is something I could do! Who doesn’t want to go to Cancun FOR FREE!!? It doesn’t even seem unattainable, because the nails totally sell themselves. Once people see them and find out what they are, they go crazy over them!! I know I can do this!!
Not only that, I’d like to stop renting a washer and dryer and I think if I save the money I’m making through Jamberry, I could totally buy them! If anyone would like to help me wash my clothes, you can buy, host a party or join my team at www.dazed66.jamberrynails.net. You can like my page at https://www.facebook.com/dazed66.jamberry. You should go for it too!!
I declared that it was boot season way back in September. I think since that day, I’ve worn boots every day. I went to work one day and found that my heel had a crack in them, so I, sadly, HAD to go buy some new boots. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on clothes because I like a LOT of clothes. I always bargain shop! I went to DSW and found some very similar to the ones I had. They’re Unisa, so they are really comfortable. They also have a pretty wide leg, which is great since I have big legs!
I am also in LOVE with Tory Burch. I got this Tory Burch purse and some Tory Burch earrings for Christmas. (You can’t see the earrings in the picture, but they are SUPER cute. I’ll have to remember to take a picture of them some day.) We got a really good deal on them because we got them online through Ebates and Nordstrom.
If you haven’t heard of Ebates, you need to sign up NOW. It will change your online shopping habits forever. All you have to do is sign up. You’ll get a free gift card right away just for signing up. Then ANY time you want to buy online, just go to Ebates first, find out if the store you want to buy from has an agreement with them, click on the store, then shop normally. Ebates tracks the sale and then you get some money back!!! So for my Tory Burch purse and earrings, I get back $21.60 because Nordstroms was doing 6% back. Nordstroms has free shipping, so it was cheaper than buying in the store!! YEA me!! Another good deal!
I found this outfit on Pinterest and thought it was cute. It just so happened I had all of the stuff for my Pinspiration in my closet already! I’m not sure where she bought her stuff, but I got the clothes at Marshalls and the boots at DSW. I’m betting I didn’t pay as much for my outfit as she did!
We went to a celebratory lunch at the Rustic today. I had what might possibly be the best hamburger I’ve ever had in my life. They also have bands that play there at night. I can’t wait to go there on a Friday or Saturday night! I highly recommend going there!
Instead of dealing with all the drunks out on the road for New Year’s Eve, I decided to head out to Lake Tawakoni and go camping. I guess I should use the word “camping” lightly, because going in a travel trailer isn’t exactly roughing it! In fact, a lot of people actually LIVE in their travel trailers. I stayed at the Sunset Resort; I think 99% of the people who were there actually live there. My two favorite parts of the trip were starting a campfire each day and cooking out, not that I cooked over the campfire or anything.
One of the best things I cooked was a Chicken Taco Soup. I’m not sure why, but everything tastes better when it’s cooked outside, even if you use regular kitchen utensils like I did. This crockpot soup was made ALMOST entirely from cans so it was really EASY!! Not only that, I bought all generic cans, so it was really cheap!
- 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (14.5 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
- 1 (15.25 oz.) can sweet corn, drained
- 1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce
- 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 Shredded Rotisserie Chicken
Pour all of the ingredients in the crockpot, cook on high for as long as you want. I think I had it on for a couple hours. Stir it occasionally.
Garnish it with chips, shredded cheese, sour cream, or anything else you can come up with! This was delicious!!! I will probably even make this for dinner at home!!
I am in love with Nail Covers! I have never liked to get manicures because they end up chipping after the first day. Now I’ve found something that works for WAY longer. Jamberry Nail Covers will last for about TWO WEEKS!!! I just ordered some red glittery ones and a black chevron print for my fun nail! These will look so good at Christmastime!! Jamberry has such cute designs, but if you don’t like the ones they have, you can create your own!! If you want to order some for you or for you and your daughter, click on my Jamberry link and get yours today!! http://dazed66.jamberrynails.net
The ones below are ones that someone else did or they were on a Jamberry site. They are really easy to do!!
My favorite holiday is Halloween! There is nothing more fun than coming up with what you want to be and then going out on the search to find whatever it takes to become that person/thing. It’s really rewarding when it all comes together! This year instead of a normal costume parade, we did a Storybook Character Parade! The office staff dressed up as Disney Fairies. I was impressed that people really committed to their characters! Big fun was had by all! I’m so lucky to work with such wonderful people in such a wonderful place!!
I saw this recipe on Facebook last month and it’s been on my mind ever since. I’ve been waiting on the weather to get a little cooler since cool weather and cornbread go hand in hand! I’m pretty sure that this isn’t low carb, but sometimes you have to live a little! This was well worth the wait! Where has this been all my life!?
2 packages of Mexican Cornbread Mix
1 can of Cream Style Corn
2 lbs Hamburger Meat
2 cans rotel
1 can Ranch Style Beans
Bag of shredded Cheese
I am so excited about my new toy for this week. My friend at Definitely Leopard has been bragging about loving her new fitbit and I resisted buying it for about a month. But, now that school has started back and I have been running from car to car to get students to the right car, I started wondering how many steps I’m taking. Turns out I’m taking anywhere from 10,000 – 20,000 steps a day!! I also can track my sleep patterns, no shock here, I wake up a LOT at night. I also like that I can see how many steps my friends that have one take. You can pair it with endomondo, but since I do a monthly challenge based on time, it wasn’t fair.
Well, seems like every time I do a blog I’m talking about getting back on track. Looks like this week will be no different. Tomorrow, I will recommit myself to eating healthy. I went to the grocery store and bought all healthy food. I’m sticking with the low carb diet since it worked really well the first week I did it.
Box of cut mushrooms
2 cans of diced tomatoes
2 cups of hot sauce
2 bags of frozen okra
1 bag of cut broccoli
1 package of dry hot sauce mix
generous amount of lemon pepper
(Usually I put in chicken, but they didn’t have any left at the grocery store today)
Cook on high in the crockpot for 4 – 6 hours
I’m still attempting to do a low carb diet, although the Labor Day Weekend set me back a little bit. I’m pretty sure Blue Bell ice cream has no carbs these days, so I may be ok! The best thing to do when you get off track, though, is to get right back on track.
The hard part of doing a low carb diet is that you really can’t have any bread. This usually means no comfort food like hamburgers. One of the worst things about eating a hamburger is that after you eat it, you feel all bloated because of all the carbs in the bread. Today was the day I decided to fix that problem. I thought I’d attempt to pair my low carb bread with a burger. I was so excited when it tasted MARVELOUS! I don’t think I’ll ever eat a burger on regular bread again. The low carb bread didn’t get all soggy or anything!!
I might also want to mention that I made the pre-made burgers from Krogers on my George Foreman Grill!! What a winning combination!

Mayonnaise (This probably wasn’t a great choice, but I like mayonnaise)
