Last month I received an email that made me super excited. It was from Influenster saying that I was going to receive another voxbox full of products to test out. This is my third box since I joined last year and after my last box (dish soap) I kept wondering what I would be getting. No more need to wonder as I finally received it and I am completely overjoyed by what I got. I cannot wait to try out these products since quite a few of them I have been wanting to buy anyways. I had to laugh though when I saw the toothbrush because the day before I had bought a brand new one, lol.

My son & I are absolutely obsessed with these confetti eggs that we found for the first time this year in the Easter section. After buying a dozen for $2 bucks a pop (and I bought a lot at first) I figured why not learn how to make them myself. They are super easy to make and even better I am reusing the egg shells that just normally get tossed away.

I know, I know, this post is ridiculously late but I always say late is better than never. Since my March box will be here in the next few days I figured it would be best if I get this up now instead of doing both at the same time. The oohh and awweee has totally worn away since unboxings of last months box have been up everywhere for a long while now but hey, I can oohhh and awwwhhh years from now right? :)

Have you heard about Google getting rid of Google Reader on July 1st? If not than they have a post here that you can read all about it! Since this is happening it might be a good idea to merge the blogs that you are following with a reader like bloglovin so you don't miss any posts. There are others out there like Hellocotton but since I merged all of mine with bloglovin last night I decided to make a tutorial for you guys just in case you didn't know yet.

I really enjoyed making my St. Patrick's Day word search that I decided to make one for Easter. Hopefully you will like this one if you enjoyed the last one. These are super fun to make and it seems like making these will become a regular thing because not only does my 73 year old grandmother love them and keeps asking me for more but my mother's boss also prints them out for the kids that come into their work and for her church. Enjoy and if you do please let me know and don't forget to share with your friends & family.

Now, I know what you are probably saying right now seeing this post. But yes, I really am doing a book review on a Nancy Drew book. Why not? I love these books and always have ever since I was much younger. Much? hahha I'm not that old lol. I even have numerous boxes in my garage that are full of different Nancy Drew books. Some things from your childhood just stick with ya. Did you know that the author's name Carolyn Keene was not actually a real person but was actually a pseudonym and the Nancy Drew books were and are actually written by various different people (ghost authors)? Interesting little fact there eh.

Saturday was not only the eve of St. Patrick's day but it was also Henderson's annual parade for the holiday. This was the first time that I've ever been to it since I moved here in 1994. And really, I was not missing anything. It was great to get out of the house but it was just a total let down. There was also a carnival and vendors so I was hoping to have a great day with my son. Sadly my hopes or more likely my standards were just too high.
This was what their floats looked like.

With the new movie "OZ: the Great and Powerful" coming out tomorrow I was inspired to do something special to my nails. What first sparked my inspiration was the nail polish that I received in my February Birchbox (you can view that post here) and my mind just started flowing with ideas of what to do from there. My idea behind this is that the emerald polish represents the Emerald City. The yellow brick road starts out small on my little finger and gradually increases to my thumb where OZ is represented. Isn't it interesting how something so small and colorful as a nail polish can spark creativity?

Last night I was going through some old photos and came across some really interesting ones. I figured why not write a quick post about them since they are really cool in my opinion and are of opportunities that I am very grateful that I got. It is definitely true that you meet some cool and interesting people throughout your life and especially in Las Vegas. So I think maybe I'll start with the oldest photos first.

Okay, so I'll just admit it. I've already failed at my new years resolutions even though I wrote this long flipping post about them. I think that having so many might have been a bit overwhelming which led me to having an epiphany the other night. What if....I chuck resolutions out the window and just focus on monthly goals. Sounds like something probably everyone in the world does but I wasn't one of them. At least not until now...hopefully.
