Maybe This Time!!

If you have been keeping up with my blog at all, you will know that I've just found a great new acne treatment. It wasn't the cheapest in the world, but I'm so hopeful that it will finally get rid of my skin problems once and for all. I've been on it for two days, and I've already noticed that the redness has diminished amazingly well--I still have a hundred little bumps, but so far, they are far less noticeable. I'm thrilled so far, and so hopeful that I've finally found something that works! Before and after pictures coming later!

Pizza Movie Night!!

Every Friday in our house it's Pizza/Movie night. It helps that you can get a pizza for $5 bucks--and it feeds the five of us just fine, but there are times when the video rental costs even more. By the time we find a movie for the kids and one for me and then forget to return them on time, I could have purchased one of them for the amount that I pay. But now online you can get Blockbuster coupons which will help cut the cost of movie rental in half, as well as late fees! At this rate, I can afford two pizzas instead of just one!

Our Retreat!!

I'm starting to think about our "Marriage Retreat" coming up this Fall. OK, so it's just a weekend away together...not really heading out for some fresh air, counseling and anything else that comes to mind when you hear the word 'retreat'. But hey, that's what I call it! It's our time away together to rejuvenate the LOVE! This year we are heading East instead of West! New York City travel is so fun and exciting, and I would love to have the opportunity to share that little piece of the world with my husband. I've been there four or five times, but it's still my favorite place! He's thinking more along the lines of Boston and New England, and you know what...I'm up for that too! I'm just excited that he's excited about the trip. It means a lot!

I'm Taking The Plunge!!

I have been blogging recently about my need to change the things about myself that make me unhappy, and find a way to be happy not only in the skin I'm in, but the city, the area, the everything! You've probably read by now that one of the things I hate the most is the fact that at 37 years old I still have problematic skin. I eat good things, I cleanse and moisturize, there is nothing I haven't tried (other than hormone therapy) that has helped. So I'm going to be looking into a natural acne treatment this week, and hopefully soon, this will be one more thing that makes me sad that will be washed away. Waking up everyday with clear skin...I can't even imagine!

Finding A Good One!!

Do you love to read? I was an English Lit major in college, and the best part was the opportunity to read all of the books. I loved the old classics, as well as finding some of the ones from today. I'm not sure they would call some of today's favorites "classics", but man...there are some good ones out there. With the news of today, sometimes you just have to get yourself lost in a good book for awhile to escape it all. That's what we do in this house anyway.

Starting Again!!

I am taking the bull by the horns! I've started eating better, and I'm even starting a new workout's about time to drop these "extra pounds" once and for all. I would love something easier, like Orovo detox. Have you heard of this thing? It's been on Oprah and everything, but you can lose 7 lbs in 7 days. Yes, it's sounding a bit to easy, but at $40.00 a bottle, I think it's worth a shot! Anything to get a little boost. I just hope to steer clear of the jitters you get from so many other weight loss products!
