When I grow up

Secretly I think Mr.Barefeet was sad that his son's first jersey wasn't that of his alma mater, University of Colorado Buffaloes or that of his family The Ohio State University, they have a brick at the stadium you know. But how can you argue with a little boy that wants to be like Tebow.

Hilary and her new shoes

This morning I took Hilary to get new shoes, expensive fabulous shoes ! Who's Hilary you ask...Hilary is my SUV, she is a Hummer and she is Fantastic. (now talk among yourselves and laugh at the irony Hilary,Hummer . Yes I'm referring to the Clinton scandal)

Before you judge too much, no I'm not a middle age balding man trying to compensate for a small penis by driving a Hummer and I'm not trying to ruin the environment...I recycle, I bring my bags to the grocery store, we use windsource for our electricity, and Hilary is American made! I might be a bit defensive but she's truly wonderful. From the moment I first saw her I felt as if Hilary was made just for me. Although people can barely see me over the steering wheel, I'm 5'2", Hilary and I are perfect for each other.

Back to Hilary's new shoes, they may not be Christian Louboutin's but they are BF Goodrich's in a beautiful matte black nubby rubber, they give her a bounce in her step, elongate her legs, and give her a new found confidence that we women understand...nothing feels as good as the perfect shoe. Tomorrow to complete Hilary's new look we head to the car wash I mean spa, body polish, mani/pedi & massage.

Look out for the shiny,more confident Hilary...she'll be unstoppable!!!

warm sunny wishes !!!

BA da BING...I'm in love

My new love.... ! I'm sure you have all seen the crazy commericals on TV for bing, the cure for search overload syndrome. But they offer so much more, and with the holidays right around the corner I thought I would share. Bing offers shopping with a cashback reward, FABULOUS !!! I recently discovered bing while searching for a coupon to use on a purchase. Bing has a cashback reward percentage at thousands of stores. The percentage varies from store to store with occasional special offers thrown in and sometimes free shipping. You get paid to shop for items you would be buying anyways and you can still use any store coupons you have on the order.

What's the catch you ask...the only one I found is you must wait 60 days for your reward to ensure there hasn't been any orders canceled or returned. Then bing will send you your reward via check,transfer or paypal. If you do encounter any problems I have had super service from the customer service agents, helpful, quick & best of nice!

Now to get started you simply go to sign up for cashback and MOST IMPORTANT shop through the bing site and I must say they have some amazing stores that we all use from low to high end, bing is a must and I'm in love!

Happy shopping !

warm sunny wishes !
