Road Trips & Guitar Picks + Trip down Memory Lane


I have been given an amazing opportunity from Country Financial to see Jason Aldean in Concert this Saturday! Not only have I been given amazing seats, but I also have the chance of a lifetime to go backstage, get a little concert, take pictures & ask Jason questions! I am really excited, as I am really looking forward to meeting this up & coming country star! Not to mention, see his handsome self up close & personal!

I will admit, I grew up in the Sticks, I used to have long hair - down to my butt, wore wrangler jeans, lace up boots, and even had a few cowboy hats! My weekends included going to rodeos to cheer on my friends, going to country music concerts, and indefinitly - gravel road cruisin'! When I reached college years - I started to out grow that me. I started dressing more fashionable, wearing make up, listening to different genre's and even started dating Chris - of whom, absolutly despises anything country. As hard as I have tried to run from my roots - I always end up coming back to them.

I've noticed in the last few months - my radio is always on the local country station (unless Chris is with me then its a Hip-hop/Rock mix station), and now that the weather is starting to warm up - I am starting to miss living on the farm with my parents. I miss the peace & quiet, the horses, the STARS! Now that I live in the "Big City" of St. Louis - its tough to find a nice quiet, peaceful place - and I haven't seen the stars since living here.

This concert will allow me to really get in touch with my roots & I really look forward to dustin' off the old me! :) I am taking my mother to the concert - because she is about as country as you can get! That woman has always been true to herself & to her roots - I envy her.

But enough about me & My past....now onto the concert information!!

Thursday Thirteen

Sorry Fellow Bloggies - I have been out of touch the last week or so...My entire household has Strep Throat so there has been a TON of medications, Benedryl and Naps - so here is my attempt to blog today. I'm still not 100% - my throat is still killing me - and I even got a big steroid shot in my butt yesterday - so hopefully it starts to work, and ASAP! I have a HUGE Part on Saturday - We're celebrating St Pats with a big Parade downtown + We're celebrating my birthday that night since everyone will be in town for the Parade - so I can NOT be sick - I Look forward to this day all year long!! Damn you Preschools & Their Virus infested corridors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok - now on to Thursday 13! :) This is my fancy lil creation for Amber & I's birthday blog - so if you haven't check it out & and you have participated you better get your fanny on over & do it! It's alot of fun - and it only gets better throught the week!!!



The Challenge:
Guess what! The girls have just surprised you with a birthday weekend in Vegas and its just 2 short weeks away! Problem is, they have already booked the flight but wanted you to help plan the rest of the trip! They aren’t the most responsible friends – but it’s the thought that counts right?

It is now your responsibility to book the transportation, hotel, dinner reservations etc.

You still have to do some things around the house before you can leave for your vacation. Thankfully though, your boyfriend/husband has agreed to take care of all the home stuff, like paying the bills, buying groceries, etc (That takes a huge stress off of you).

Now you have to make a list of Thirteen things you have to do in order to be ready for your Vegas trip!

1. Book the Hotel
- we're staying at the Palms - a great Party Resort & Perfect for a Girls Gone Wild Weekend!! :) I think the perfect room would be the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa:



2. Book the Transportation:
Here's on Transportation too & from the airport in Vegas!!




Now I have to start booking the Reservations:



3. Stripper 101 -
Yes you read that right! I want my man to know that I learned something just for him when I was in Vegas *wink* And it might come in handy when I lose all my money gambling and I need more cash to buy food...Just kidding...or am I??



4. American Storm
-an All Male Revue - ok ladies, we all know the Men in our lifes would be hitting up the strip club - so it's perfectly all right if we hit one up too! :) Or if you would rather have the mind set of what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...well that's alright too!



5. Insanity-
One of the craziest coasters I have EVER seen! But looks like a ton of fun!!




6. Freemont Street
-Its' free & amazing! Just bright lights & all things Vegas! :)




7.Madame Tussauds
- Wax figures sort of freak me out - but I think Madame Tussauds would be alot of fun! I drool on George Clooney & even hop in Bed with Mr. Hefner himself! Sounds like a good time to me *wink*


8. Haunted Vegas Tour
-Get to visit some haunted places around Vegas and you even get to have Seance - Whooo Spookey!! :)



9. Peep Show
So I am a HUGE fan of Girls Next Door - well until Hef got new girlfriend - and I just Love Holly (Kendra's still my fav) But I would have been wanting to see Hollys New act "Peep Show" for a long time! So this is DEF on the list of stuff to do! :)


10. Kahunnaville at Treasure Island
-Nothing better than  a Party bar, and why not one that reminds me of my fav party spot in the world: Cancun! Kahunaville is a fun place to grab a bite to eat, drink a bit, and meet some new friends!




11. Coyote Ugly
-If theres a Coyote Ugly in the area - you bet you can find me there! This is a must do while inVegas! :)




12. Run by the local grocery & pick some Chasers or Boozers - Just to help with that Vegas Hangover

13. Start shopping for some fun clothes!! :)



So get your booty on over to our Bday Celebration Blog, link up, and get your chance to win a great prize!!!

I started a New Business!!

Hey bloggy buddies!! I just wanted to make a quick post letting everyone know that I started my own business! I am selling Scentsy Wickless products now! And I love it! I have always been a fan of Scentsy - I love coming home to amazing smelling home & I just the fact that Scentsy is safe to have around children & pets!


Because Scentsy has no Wicks, Flames, Smoke, or Soot - they are the perfect addition to any home, office, classroom, church, basement, etc! The wax only get's a few degree's warmer than body temperature - so there is no worries about burns! The warmer does get a ltittle warm...think of a warm cup of coffee. The wax itself is made from Food Grade Petroleum based wax, there are NO chemicals or "By Products" released while burning! Scentsy only warms the wax - the wax does not burn or evaporate!

Each Scentsy bar lasts approx 60-80+ hours, the length depends on the strength of the fragrance as well as how many cubes are put in at one time.

To launch my new business I have decided to offer FREE SHIPPING to my readers if they purchase any Scentsy products from me by Wed, March 10th! The first 5 readers to purchase a Scentsy Warmer will recieve an additional Free Gift! Make sure to email me if you plan to order so I can put you in the system correctly!

Please check out my new Scentsy Blog & Make me your New Scentsy Consultant - you won't be sorry that you did!

It Just Makes Scents  < -- Link to new blog! :)

Ps. Are you looking for some additional income? To host a Party? Please email me for more details!

I plan on holding Monthly Contests & Drawings for FREE SCENTSY PRODUCTS as well - so make sure to Subscribe in my RSS & become my Google Friend! :)

Did I mention...I hate 'Mallows?

Ok...so the biatch lovely Supah decided it would be a fantabulous idea to force us Supah Survivors to shove super nasty, puffed air death traps totally yummy Marshmallows into our mouths this week! The first thing I thought when I read this on Friday was "Are you kidding me?! I HATE 'Mallows! They are nasty & disgusting & I'm going to puke if they go into my mouth!" But I was a trooper...and I did as a completly Supah whipped, over competitive I was told!

Here's my Vid & I know I didn't win! But I should get an A for effort and an A+ for bring Chris along to join the humiliation Party! Yep that's right...I got Chris to do it with me! I beat him though - but we all knew my mouth was bigger than his! Do I get bonus points since I had 2 people in my video? 2 different people?!



Now that that's over with! (Thank you lord baby Jesus!!) I can finally say that this is what I dreamt of last night...yes...this!:
