Totally Giving a Plug to DK and Beauty Cents

My we go back so far it's ridiculos friend Deenie, DeenieK or Katie as most of us remember her has become a fabulous freelance write. I must say, I check out her writings daily. All of em.... in any fashion I can receive them; magazine, Daily Cents, blog, etc. I love her and her writings. They are so fun to read and so full of the info I so desperately need.

She writes for about Beauty. Katie, the master of beauty if I must say so myself, writes about all the things we women need to know about our skin and bodies. You name it, she writes about it. From sunscreen to bras, she makes you wanna run out and try whatever she is talking about in that days article. I am not kidding. She may have cost me a hundred bucks. I go into Ulta and relish in all the beauty products I now know about due to DK. I love it. I love going and just hanging around the store like a thief. I read the labels and check out all the available colors. It's ridiculous. Sometimes I leave empty handed, which I know the cashier chicks probably think I stole stuff b/c I had been in there so long and left without spending a dime.

Anyway, I just wanted to give a little shoutout to the Deenster and let all of my 2 friends who check out my blog to be able to take advantage of all the great knowledge she shares with us after her in-depth research.

Get to checking out the site..(go the right hand side of my blog and click her link, DK the beauty blogger)

The taste of fine wine

I am no wine conoisseur or even close to it. Josh on the other hand has me beat by a mile. He can tell you all you need to know about wine...legs, taste, swirling, smelling, etc. Well, to get onto my point...we have a bakers rack that has a wine rack on the bottom. It's an acquired piece of furniture that Josh brought to our marriage from his apartment. So far, it has treated us well.

For the last or shall I say almost 2 years we have been married, I don't think we have ever put a bottle of wine on the thing. So, I made the executive decision to start a wine collection. Sometimes when I go to the grocery store and I feel like perusing through the aisles I may grab a bottle, never two. We have now accumulated a total of 4 bottles. This is record breaking, otherwise I would not be blogging about this huge accomplishment.

I pick bottles on color, label and shape never year, name or price.

Even though our wine rack is filling slowly, I still prefer Riunite if you must know the truth. It is a lovely red wine that I like extremely cold.Yeah, I know you aren't supposed to drink red wine cold. However, it is approximately $8.49 at the local Phillips gas station in Royse City for a huge bottle. What a steal? It has an awesome screw cap. No need to bring your handy bottle opener. A strong pair of hands will do the trick. There is even a nice spew noise when you open the bottle.

Things don't get any better than a nice glass of cold red screw cap Riunite wine and my newfound love for the need to complete my wine rack task.

Shakra, Namaste, blah, blah....

Ok, so I started taking Yoga. Not just any yoga, but the kind of yoga where you sit in a room that is 98.6 degrees with 60% humidity. You sweat like you can't even imagine. I am talking, sweat running off of my legs, arms, face. I bend over and it literally drops to the floor. That is hardcore sweating my friend.

Anyway, so they talk this crazy nonsense about your root shakra and namaste and dabandeste.. and some other lingo I know nothing about and prefer to keep it that way. I just enjoy the fact that I am stretching my body and it feels absolutely incredible. It's like you just get 1 1/2 hours to yourself... no music, no talking, no nothing... just you and your body and your sweat running like a faucet.

So, after yoga, I HAD to go to the grocery store. I am talking absolutely not a drop of food at our house. As much as I didn't want to go b/c my shirt was soaking wet, black eye make up was running down my face, and I think I even had butt sweat.. I went and people stared and I just smiled awkwardly as I picked out my healthy food!!! Yeah, I am trying to "become" healthy. It's hard work and expensive, but I know it's gonna pay off. I am resisting the syrupy sweet tea in the kitchen right now. I did enjoy strawberries w/o sugar, grapes and an apple this morning. Will be moving on to a wheat bread turkey sandwich for lunch... then we shall see how things go from there.. It might get crazy.

Yeah, Yeah.. I am a day late...

Besides the fact that I am the worst blogger ever...

I went to see SATC!!!! I absolutely loved it. Will be purchasing it as soon as it is availabe on DVD. I will add it to my collection... BFF and I used to text each other and say we were going to New York when we were about to watch the show. That's it.

Now, Josh and I went home this weekend and totally went to Jubilee Jam. By far, JJ is one of my most favorite things to do. I love downtown Jackson. I know it's ghetto and I know the crime blows.. but come on.. JJ is amazing and I want J-town to thrive and survive.. so we went to support to local hoo haa. I definitely enjoyed ZZ Top and my favorite, Robert Randolph. AMAZINGGGGGG.

Saturday, we headed on down to Crystal Springs for a friend of mines wedding. It was lovely. A little warm outside, but a good time indeed and just like I pictured a Jenny Alton and Doug Price wedding. We headed back to "town" for more of Jubilee Jam fun. BFF, hub, my hub and Claire without her hub went to kick it downtown with Robert Randolph and I mustn't forget, Three Six Mafia. Yeah, we threw gang signs and what not and took pics. I will attempt to get those up ASAP.

Father's Day went down at 143 McCarty with my family. My brother's gonna be a new dad come January, so we got to celebrate dad, new dad and sadly missed grandad. ( I did get to call my other g-pa via phone though)

OK, so work is now calling. I know this blog was just full of good times... til next time...
