Birthday Quilt

I have the best mom in the whole world! She arrived at my house last night after driving 2 days from Arizona. Today, she handed me a big bag and told me it was my birthday present. I was so excited, I ripped it open and found one of the most beautiful quilts I’ve ever seen. She machine pieced it and hand quilted it, making it even more special because she doesn’t hand quilt as much as she used to. I am soooo happy!

Sorry this isn’t the best picture, I was in a hurry and didn’t notice the pillow sticking out! I just couldn’t wait to share!

I Am A Diamond Guest

I work for a major hotel company in customer service. I deal with loyalty member daily, that’s my job. I cannot tell you how close to reality this video is! I am totally cracking up laughing watching this. If you have ever, or currently work in customer service, this is a must see.

First Aid For Less

This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Around our house, we use a lot of adhesive bandages for first aid.  There are the typical nicks and cuts that require treatment and protection, but my husband and daughter both have issues with their nail cuticles on their fingers.  They both uses bandages wrapped around their finger tips to protect their cuticles, almost every day.  This means adhesive bandages are purchased in our home almost as often as we buy milk.  And, just like when I purchase milk, I look for quality and fair pricing.

Recently I received a box of Walgreen’s Brand Adhesive Bandages to try out and, in exchange, I said I would give my honest feedback on their product.  So, here are my opinions of the Walgreens Brand Adhesive Bandages, part of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products .

I found the Walgreen’s Brand Adhesive Bandages work as well as any name brand of bandage we’ve ever used in our first aid kit.  The bandages were comfortable and protected the wounds that were being treated, better than I expected.  To my surprise, when I did a little online shopping, I discovered that the price of the Walgreen’s Brand Adhesive Bandages is more than a full $1 cheaper than some of the name brand products.   With our current family budget, that is a HUGE deal!

I haven’t yet tried other Walgreen’s Brand Health & Wellness products, but I certainly plan to based on my experience with the bandages.   Why should I spend more of my hard earned money for the same quality product, not to mention that they are all pharmacist recommended products and come with a satisfaction guarantee.

In addition to being quality made products, the purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products helps to bring preventative wellness services through the  Walgreens Way to Well Fund™to which Walgreen’s contributes up to $3 million annually. This fund helps provide preventative health screenings to local communities.

I wish everyone, Irish or not, a very happy St. Patrick’s Day! I do feel the luck of the Irish was with me today, bringing me pleasant clients to deal with during my shift, followed by a wonderful afternoon spent with my daughter. We did lunch at a new French bistro, did a little shopping and even went for some frozen yogurt. Came home and played some games together on my new iPad. I love when we can just enjoy each others company!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
