When you tell someone you are going to help them, then help them. Don’t back out months later when they have been depending on you. 

I don’t care if you’re a friend or family or whatever else. You’re essentially causing them stress and anxiety over something that they didn’t think would happen. And when you dick someone over like that several times, you really make them feel like you can’t trust them! Especially when it involves money.


REVIEW: Vivid Lighting LED Bulbs, 60 Watt Replacement, 8W, 800 Lumens, 6 Pack, Soft White (2700K), Non-Dimmable

The packaging: It came in a Vivid box within an Amazon box. The bulbs were snugly fit into a plastic sleeve. Nothing was broken and everything seemed to be packaged really well. Nothing was broken either!
The look: They look different from your typical bulbs. They had a heavy duty plastic casing over the base of the bulb. They do not feel like glass but more like a heavy plastic, but they are definitely not cheaply made!

After installation: We put them in our floor lamps. They were pretty bright for a 60 watt and when looking at them, didn’t seem to be 60 watt! They screwed in very easily too.

Overall: We love the product and definitely intend to buy them in the future!!

Would you recommend to friends/family?: Absolutely!! Both my husband and I would recommend!

Friends are so important in our lives. I never truly realized this until my mom got super sick and I decided to move 700 miles from the town I grew up in to a city. 

It is especially true when you start to experience trials and tribulations that tear your world apart. Whether it’s through text, phone, email, FaceTime or social media. It’s always nice to know that there is someone out there that cares about you.


I am a very emotional person. Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes it’s a bad thing. It means I feel everything no matter if I want to or not, I cry easily, I read people well and it’s hard for me to just not care.

My friends and I had the discussion about not caring and living a happier life because of it. They said it’s easier to not care than it is to do the opposite. It’s just not that easy for me. There are too many people in the world who just don’t care.

Maybe it’s my anxiety disorder. Maybe it’s because I know what it’s like to have somebody not care about how I feel and I don’t want others to feel that same feeling. Maybe it’s just the way I was made? Id rather care too much than care too little. 


We adopted a basset hound/jack Russell terrier mix a few weeks ago and named him Buddy. He was probably the best choice we made. Such a sweet boy. Slept in the same bed with us from the first night on. House trained, knows some commands, cuddly and protective. We got him from the shelter and he came home with a double bacterial ear infection and needed an anal gland expression done but it was definitely worth the vet bills!

Then we decided to adopt a second dog on Saturday. The Humane Society was doing free adoptions so we went there to see what they had. We found this beautiful girl in the first cage and we were instantly drawn to her. She has that beautiful shepherd in her along with a terrier mix. She is probably one of the sweetest and loving dogs I’ve met. Very cuddly and loves attention. We named her Bella. Her and Buddy are co existing right now but I know they will be like brother and sister eventually!!

Best Friends

Best friends make the world go round. Who would have thought that I would meet my best friend on one of the largest mmorpg’s???

World of Warcraft has been a part of my life since 2004. Hubby and I decided to run a guild and my now bff decided to join. One day, she left and I chased after her! She came back and from that day forward we have talked EVERY DAY. We have been there for each other through every trial and tribulation and we are like 2 peas in a pod. I swear we are twins with how similar we are! Right down to how our births went with our children, our sciatica, the way we handle certain things, favorites, etc!! 

I am not sure how I lived life without her before. But she is one of the smartest, prettiest, compassionate, loving, nurturing, truthful (shall I go on?) women I know!! 

Gabi: thank you so much for being that staple in my life. Love you so much!! Best friend anyone could ever have!!
