Western Union “My WU Calling” Sweepstakes

Three years ago I met a man and met his dog.
I’m scared of dogs and this one was the biggest chocolate lab ever.
I fell in love with both.
This past weekend the dog died.
A heartbroken emoji somehow doesn’t seem enough to express this loss.
I never in a million years imagined I would feel this intense sense of loss over a dog.
And yet I do.
The void left in our lives is deep and real.
Maybe if I blog about it,it won’t hurt as much.
So there.

But,this post isn’t all about dead furry family members, its also about the Western Union “My WU Calling” Sweepstakes. There is no cute way to transition from one to other so I’ll just give the facts to you and then you’ll be off your merry mailing way – you must be a member of the Western Union My WU program (so totally worth it!) and you can enter to win one of THIRTEEN smart phones valued at $499.99 each either by redeeming some of your points or by mailing in (unlimited entries!):

Happy Birthday to Me!


My favorite day of the year is here.

September 13th.

Today I turn the big 3-5.

I’m that much closer to 40 and to be honest, that’s kinda making me freak out a little.

But overall, I feel blessed to have the life I have.

I feel happy and optimistic about my choices.

I feel genuine excitement about my future.

I feel grateful that I’ve had 34 fantastic years already – and I can’t wait to see what the next 34 years bring.

So Happy Birthday to Me!

Social security is that big elephant in the room no one is comfortable talking about but what if I told you that if you’re disabled, it is your right to receive benefits and that you can actually find out if you qualify for those social security benefits from the comfort of your own home, would you believe me? I hope so because that is the truth. Simply fill out this free social security disability benefits evaluation form and see if you’re eligible to receive over $2,000 a month (no joke!).

Cheap PCB Prototypes

I’m technologically challenged but I speak cheap fluently and thankfully so does Quick Turn Protos, a company that is staffed with really techy-savvy people who happen to speak cheap as well as I do. They specialize in manufacturing cheap PCB prototypes and will even give you an instant quote on a 2 layer PCB prototype if you simply ask for one.

While you chow down on that tidbit, here’s another – they are 100% U.S based and unlike most companies out there, they don’t have minimum and maximum order limits but they do have stunningly rapid turn around on printed circuit board orders so the next time you’re on the market for high quality PCB prototypes that are gentle on your wallet, look no further than!

Victoria’s Secret Angel Card Sweepstakes

I was about 24 when I finally discovered Victoria’s Secret.
I was a late bloomer.
Don’t judge me – or judge me but accept me anyway.
Anyway, to say I’m obsessed with some of their stuff would be putting it mildly (hello boy shorts!).
Of course in my mind, when I wear VS stuff, I’m convinced I’m suddenly a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Except I look way hotter than them, in my mind (and if my best half values his life,he better agree!)
There is something about their lingerie and outfits that honestly, instantly makes me feel good and confident so naturally I keep drifting toward their shop at the mall especially when they have a good sale.

But you don’t have to wait for them to have a sale to snag some cool bras, panties or outfits for yourself or the lady in your life. You can just enter the Victoria’s Secret Angel Card Sweepstakes – and you don’t even have to be a card holder to enter but trust me, there are certain perks to being a card holder so that’s something you may want to consider.

Golden Baby – a Short Horror Film

I’m a huge fan of people who are not afraid to chase their dreams.
Thirati is one of those people.
She’s a special effects makeup artist who dreamed of one day writing and directing her own horror film.
And guess what?
She went and did just that.

The name of her movie is Golden Baby.
It’s a horror movie.
No CGI is used.
The preview actually looks great (seriously check it out)
But first, Thirati needs our help to get the movie made and submitted to the right channels which is why she’s set up an indie gogo page with a goal to raise $3,500.
Let’s go ahead and show her project some love please :)

I had to check my calendar to make sure December didn’t just creep up on me and then I had to call my friend just to double check that I wasn’t losing my mind.

2015 Grand Ole Opry 90th Birthday Bash Weekend Getaway Sweepstakes

If you knew the sins and secrets of your parents and grandparents and great grandparents, would you love them anyway?
That’s the question I’m pondering this morning.
My grandparents lived to be somewhere in their late 80s and early 90s (people barely kept records back then so it’s hard to nail down actual birth dates) but in those years, plenty of secrets were accumulated by and between them that I never got a chance to learn since 3 out of 4 grandparents died before I was born and the last one dotted on us but never really gave us any information about her life or any juicy gossip about my mom and what it was like raising her.
Oh well.

If however you want to learn all, or at least some of the Grand Ole Opry secrets, then you’re in luck because she turns 90 this year and of course there is going to be a big bash celebrating that and I bet you musicians will be spilling some very juicy secrets about their time at the Opry!
The bash happens in one of my fave cities in the US – Nashville and accommodation as well as a slew of other goodies are provided..peep the dets below. You can enter the sweep online or via mail-in by:

clearly hand printing your name, address, phone number, and date of birth on a plain piece of 3″x5″ paper and mail to:

Drag Show Reviews

I’ve never been to a live drag show.
Always wanted to, just hasn’t happened – yet.
The closest I’ve come to one is the RuPaul drag show on telly and that definitely piqued my curiosity about drag shows and that whole culture mainly because the queens look so fabulous and so fierce and full of confidence, it’s hard to look away from them.
I honestly just want to steal some makeup tips from them because they always look absolutely flawless.

If you want to see the queens live in person and are wondering when and where they’ll be appearing, then hit up because they’ve got the 411 on where the hottest drag queens are hitting the stage in cities like Philly, LA, Minneapolis, Knoxville and maybe even your local drag show bar down the road!
