Wordless Wednesday: When it rains...





...it pours! Here are some of the pics of the floods around my house this past week in Georgia.

I'm Almost There....

Did you hear about the flooding in/around Atlanta? We survived, but unfortunately I didn't get as much done as I had hoped. I wanted to put up a bunch of posts over the weekend, but there was NO WAY I was going to take the chance of my new laptop getting hit by lightning. Sorry, guess you all have something to look forward to this weekend.

PR and Companies:

Your review will still be done. I'm good to my word. I appreciate all your understanding and kind words as I get back into the groove.

Guess what? I'm back...now to answer the 2,000 emails...

I got a new laptop - a Gateway. HP and Dell failed to contact me about a review, so I had to buy the most affordable laptop and trustworthy laptop I know...sorry guys. Well, now that I'm back I have so much to tell you all. I am loving my new job and I've been really busy getting things set up at work. My family is doing great - everyone is healthy and loving school.

Now, please bear with me. I have a lot of emails to sort through and I need to pull all the data off my old hard drive (also a Gateway!) and put it on this new computer. I have been without Outlook and it has killed me trying to figure out who I need to contact - if you have sent me an email in the past few weeks you may just want to resend. I expect to be making new posts by this weekend.

So glad to be back.

Paper Culture Review - Invitations, Cards, & More

I recently got the opportunity to review some products from Paper Culture, an eco-friendly stationery company. The cards were elegant and fun. Check out the invites for the "Flirty Thirty" party invitations:

HP and Dell? Tension and Stress Migraine

First, where is HP and Dell? My laptop is dead and neither of you have contacted me about doing a review. I have been using an HP forever, but thought maybe Dell might want to steal my business....so, where is my review?

With everything that has been going on I spent the last weekend at the ER with a horrible tension/stress migraine. I had originally planned on getting all the winners announced and all my reviews posted using a friends computer, but my body had other plans. I will, however, get those winners announced and reviews up as soon as possible - be on the lookout for Kroger, Sam's, Marshalls, TJMaxx, AJWright, Looney Tunes Zoinks, Oscar-Meyer Deli Creations, and more!

Anyway, I'm glad you haven't deserted me...
