Time to Restart

Hello 2013!  With a new year, new resolutions, and a new outlook on life now is the perfect time for me to start back on my blog.

I took a few months off to deal with some personnel issues that I had going on.  I've realized to just live life to it's fullest and not to worry about things that you cannot change.  Obstacles will always be in your way and you just have to learn to deal with and overcome them.  Life will go on and only you can decide how you will let them affect your life.  I've chosen to overcome my obstacles and start with a new outlook on life and work. 

So what is to come in the future of my blog?  Well more giveaways for sure because who doesn't like to win stuff!  Also, I am training for a 5k in May and will be posting about my progress along the way. 

So stay tuned for lots more to come!

The Walking Dead~Giveaway~Ends 10/30/12

I absolutely love this show and highly recommend it (if you are a zombie, gore loving person)!  I can not wait for the 3rd season to start.  Good luck to all who enter and tune in for the season 3 premiere on October 14th at 9pm!!     

Welcome to the Walking Dead First & Second Season BluRay giveaway event hosted by Real Mom Reviews and Joy of Momma Joyner! One super lucky reader will win the complete first and second season of The Walking Dead on BluRay! The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic television drama series developed by Frank Darabont. It is based on the comic book series The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The series stars Andrew Lincoln as sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes who wakes up after being in a coma to find the world dominated by "walkers", resembling zombies. He sets out to find his family and other survivors along the way. Season one of The Walking Dead follows sheriff's deputyRick Grimes as he attempts to find his family and lead them to safety. The series begins with Rick waking up from a coma in an abandoned and badly damaged hospital. Leaving the hospital Rick discovers a post-apocalyptic world overrun with zombies (or "walkers", as they are referred to in-show). Rick also discovers his wife and son are missing. Acting on a rumor from a fellow survivor, he arms himself and begins a perilous journey to Atlanta, Georgia, where the CDC is said to have set up a quarantined "safe-zone" in the city, reasoning that his family may be there. Season two of The Walking Dead begins with Rick and his group of survivors escaping the CDC. They decide that Fort Benning would be their next destination. Along the way, they come across a traffic jam of abandoned vehicles on Interstate 85. The group loots several vehicles and, as a large herd of walkers approaches, are forced to hide under the vehicles. While in hiding Sophia is chased out from under the vehicle and is then pursued into the woods. The remaining group deals with interpersonal relationships while various searches for Sophia are performed. Carl is accidentally shot during the initial search by a hunter, Otis. Otis leads Rick and Shane to a large, isolated farm owned by a veterinarian named Hershel Greene. The survivors move to the farm while Carl recovers. The series has been well received by critics,and has received many award nominations, including a Writers Guild of America Award nomination and a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series Drama. The series has also attained strong Nielsen ratings, beating various records for a cable series, including receiving 9 million viewers for its season two finale to become the most-watched basic cable drama telecast in history and we are so excited to give one lucky reader both the first and second season on Blu-ray! Giveaway is open to US and Canada and ends on October 30th at 11:59PM! Please make sure you read the Giveaway Rules before you enter!

Pick up the iPad and suddenly, it’s clear. You’re actually touching your photos, reading a book, playing the piano. Nothing comes between you and what you love. To make that hands-on experience even better, they made the fundamental elements of iPad better – the display, the camera, the wireless connection. All of which makes the third-generation iPad capable of so much more than you ever imagined. Everything you do with iPad, you do through its large, beautiful display. And when the display is better, the entire iPad experience is better. The Retina display on the iPad features a 2048-by-1536 resolution, 44-percent greater color saturation, and an astounding 3.1-million pixels – in the same 9.7-inch space. That’s four times the number of pixels in iPad and a million more than an HDTV. Those pixels are so close together, your eyes can’t discern individual ones at a normal viewing distance. When you can’t see the pixels, you see the whole picture. Or article. Or game. In ways you never could before.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

All month long you will be hearing about breast cancer awareness.  If you have not taken time to check yourself lately then I highly recommend that you find time to do it.  It really can be a life saver if you find it early enough.  I had a little scare last year when at my routine check my doctor felt something.  I did go and have a mammogram and luckily it was nothing but for many it is more.  

I am a huge supporter of research for cancer and will try to donate to the American Cancer Society and local groups when I can.  So with that being said I found an awesome way for everyone to help donate by pinning!  Yes, I said pinning.  Those that love pinterest should definitely get in on this and help to raise money for cancer research.  If you go to  and post a picture of a loved one(or yourself) and put this tag in the photo #pinittoendit, $5 will be donated for research up to $100,000 and for every re-pin they will donate $.50.  

So go check it out and share with your friends and help to raise money for this research.
