First VoxBox - Palmolive Soft Touch!

I don't normally do stuff like this, but I get jealous seeing other bloggers get to try stuff for free.  I liked the sound of the Influenster program, so I requested an invite.  A few days later, I was invited to join...and about a week after that I was selected to receive my first VoxBox!   I already have a second VoxBox on the way.  Too fun!

My first VoxBox is for Palmolive Soft Touch dishwashing liquid.  I received two full-size bottles (unfortunately one was damaged in the mail...but Influenster is sending me a replacement) of soap, plus five $1 off coupons to share.

I received the Vitamin E (pink) and Coconut Butter (white) scents.  They both smell SO good.  The coconut scent reminds me of lying on the beach, being able to smell tanning lotion in the breeze.

Because I love a freebie, I began using them right away, and not only are my dishes nice and clean...but my hands are soft too!  Normally after I hand-wash the pots and pans, my hands and nails feel very dried out.  But after using this soap, they don't!  Awesome!

I received this product complimentary from Influenster, but my opinions are my own!
If you are interested in giving Influenster a try, let me know...I have a few invites to share!!!

No paragraph breaks...ugh!

Oh Lord.

Once I publish a post, I hardly ever come back and look at my blog.  I was horrified today, when I noticed that despite proper formatting when I compose my posts, my blog has not been including paragraph breaks.  Ugh.  Holy "walloftext" posts.  Sorry about that.  Sheesh.

Finals, Traveling, and Mother's Day...oh my!

So's been a few days, I mean WEEKS, since I posted. Good heavens.

The good news is, I'm on summer break now! Woot! (That sounded misleading...there isn't actually any bad news!)

Studying and finals was intense, but I'm happy to report I got A's on all my finals, and A's in all of my classes. For the month of May I'll be studying for the HOBET test, which I'm assuming I will be taking in June. Also in (I assume) June, I will interview for admission to the Surgical Technology program. Here we go! I'm nervous!

I just got home from six days in Ohio, visiting my best friend as she graduated from college! Oh I love spending time with her and her family. We did fun girly things like manicures and staying up late chatting. We went out for delicious meals, and had a graduation party with her extended family. I rode a motorcycle for the first time! So many good times and amazing memories. Why oh why do we have to live 8 hours apart???

Shannon's had a few busy weeks, with Spring Theatre Showcase, Spring Chorus Concert, Theatre Banquet, her EOCT tests, the opening of The Great Gatsby movie (that she attended in costume, lol), and her upcoming AP test. Girl is BUSY, but of course we wouldn't have it any other way.

And now, here it is the eve of Mother's Day. I feel very blessed to live not only with my sweet daughter, but my sweet mom too. So much love under one roof.
