I’m back, baby!

I’m back in the land of the interwebs!  Woot!  I stalked FedEx all day and finally this afternoon our new MacBook arrived.  We’ve been computer-less for over a month now.  You don’t realize how much you use a computer until you don’t have one.  I’ve been able to do some things on my iPhone, but it’s not nearly the same.  Thankfully Apple had a one day sale on Black Friday so I was able to save some big money on the laptop & Airport Express wifi router.  It’s so freeing to be able to use the computer on the sofa!  Not tied to a desk or the kitchen counter anymore!  I know what you’re thinking, welcome to the 2000s Shannon, we’ve been doing that for years!  But our eMac worked so great for so long we never had to replace it and catch up with the rest of the world until now.

To celebrate being back (and my new header- thanks to Sara) I’m giving away a fun prize!  Leave a comment on this post and I’ll enter your name to win a $5 gift card to Friendly’s restaurant.  I’ll put the gift card in your Christmas card from us with the annual Christmas pug pic. Our puggies are ready to pose! 🙂

Free Hot Chocolate for me and YOU!

I love office/school supplies with such a passion it’s almost embarrassing.  Every time I go to Target or Walmart I always take a stroll down the office/school supplies aisle to drool, ooh & ahh.   And I have to keep myself completely out of big box office supply stores like Staples or there could be a scene.  I may end up rolling around in a pile of sticky notes.

You can imagine my *squee* glee when Carolina Pad sent me a big box of products from their Hot Chocolate line to try & review. Hot-Chocolate2I am so in love with these products.  Seriously.  I will have a big, thorough review for you in a couple days.
