#Giveaway Hot Tea Month Giveaway




National Hot Tea Month

January is a time for new beginnings, health, and family. Most of us have already made resolutions of one sort or another. Those that are simple to incorporate into our lives are the ones that we are most likely to stick with past January. The potential benefits of adding tea to our diets, it can aid in the ongoing battle of the bulge and increase the body's immunity to colds and flu, in addition to that fact that it is so inexpensive makes it an easy addition to our routine. A positive change that we are likely to keep.

By no coincidence, January is also National Hot Tea Month. The healthiest teas are teas that are pure (no milk or sweeteners). If you want to drink them every day, you can - they're good for you! So whether you're drinking to new beginnings, your health, or domestic harmony, we've got a giveaway that will help you celebrate Hot Tea Month.

Just my 2 cents ...




So let me get this straight....Russian hacked into something and interfered with our presidential election. In return, they got what they wanted! So a month and a half give or take later on, our President Obama puts sanctions on Russia and gives 35  diplomats 72-hours to leave our country. And again the Russians decide they don't like that and hack into an electric grid?!!

Seriously?? What in the hell is this world coming too?? So I'm guessing that we have proof that its linked to a Russian hacker group but, yet what can we do now?? Say or do something else in which AGAIN they will retaliate and HACK something else of ours?? Seriously?? When they are the ones that started it to begin with, as far as I know and understand by interfering in an election that they shouldn't of been concerned with!! That is dealing with OUR country not there's!

And the thing of it is, if they can get away with hacking and interfering with a NATIONAL election and now the damn electric grid...what the hell else are they capable of??? Or do I dare even think to ask that?!

And what does our President elect do? He lavishes Pres. Putin with praise!! Uh huh...sounds to me like that is a great person to be our Pres. elect..that wasn't really elected b/c Russian interfered!!!!!!! But it looks like/sounds like that doesn't matter and that we are going to continue to allow that jerk to be sworn in?? Seriously??? what the hell??? We need to do a RE-ELECTION on paper ballots where NO ONE can HACK into anything and interfere and see what the results are!!

That's just my 2 cents on things...I don't watch news that much b/c I know that there is way to much going on but then again maybe I should to keep up b/c right now our country is heading for hell in a hand basket!!!!

Oklahoma DOC - over crowding - my thoughts on the huge issue!


This is on my mind a lot lately. The over crowding issues we have here in Oklahoma with the prisons here in OK. And why is it on my mind more than usual? Because I recently have heard about a few different situations where its just not safe!

Let me just tell you some of what I've heard lately and this is just in the last WEEK! This incident happened last weekend ... yes Christmas Day. Someone just up and WALKED out of one of the facilities!! They found out that he was missing during one of the counts. And then he was picked up early Monday morning and brought back. This isn't the only one that happened. There was also one in/near OK City where a very dangerous man just also up and "walked out" of the facility and he is still on the loose!

Then another situation also that happened I believe this week as well is where someone was caught with a huge duffel bag of contraband that he was just walking across the yard and the guard noticed and took the bag and found all kinds of contraband in footballs and basketballs that was cut open and then taped shut!

So with all of these situations going on just in the last week and I believe that there was another one as well, this isn't safe for anyone! And I blame it on the over crowding as well as the low  pay that they are paying the guards at the institutions. They need and deserve to be paid a descent amount. They shouldn't be paid crap when they are in the field of a guard and protecting us. I read an article that said a lot of the guards don't make enough to where they are on state assistance like food stamps. They shouldn't have to paid so little to where they have to be on state assistance to get by!

And the more that people avoid or ignore the overcrowding issue the more dangerous and worse its going to be and get! Someone somewhere needs to start going through each prisoner and letting go some of the ones that are one time offenders of not big offenses or put some on house arrest or some to do community service or something. Something needs to be done!! I believe that the last time I read it said it was over 125% or higher over capacity! so that is absolutely ridiculous and uncalled for!!! They let out some prisoners I believe last year if I remember right BUT they let out ones that had done dangerous crimes. WHY would you allow anyone to let out those guys when there are ones in there that are in there for way lower offenses and or are in on a first offense charge etc.??!! Why can't you give the ones that are less of a threat to people out and give them a number of things such as the community service or put them on parole longer or house arrest or whatever but get them out of there and get them home or somewhere so that they will not be overcrowded! They aren't going to be  as dangerous as the ones that are in on major offenses or multiple charges etc. Why would you let someone out that has a very high chance of being a re-offender?? That is just stupid and ignorant!!

And this issue isn't going anywhere and its not going to just up and go away if we keep avoiding it! Its just going to get worse and then what? 20 prisoners a day or week are going to figure it out and just up and "walk out"?!! Then what?? 

And back to the thing with the guy that got caught with all the contraband. So they were saying that the people that threw the stuff over the fence would be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Okay really??? So you are again going to put MORE people in prison when its light offenses! Now by NO means do I okay the fact of what they did was wrong, yes of course its wrong BUT when you have people just up and "walking out" of prisons 2-3 in a week and when you already have an overcrowding issue then those people need to be dealt with in another way!! That's just going to add onto the already huge issue and whose it going to help?

I hope that someone SOON rather than later gets a plan in place and lowers sentencing from the 85% down to the 65% which had been talked about or something because the overcrowding is just getting worse by the minute and there are just more coming into the system and less going out.

Another year coming to an end


Good evening fellow bloggers and friends :) Can you believe that the year is again coming to an end already? I can't! I am glad to see this year coming to and end...so much violence and things that have gone on this year has just been a tragic year and all the losses that we've gone through in a number of ways whether it be  losing family, friends, celebs that we love, adore and admired or in other disasters like the earthquakes all across the world as well as the horrific shootings and things that have gone on. I know that we all have felt the pain and heartbreak through out the year in one way or another. No matter if you live here in the States or anywhere else in the world, it has been a rough year everywhere...hoping and praying that next year is a great one for everyone and starts off on a great note for each of you.

For me personally, things will change and it's going to be a new adventure for us as we are looking to move out of this apartment and plant our home somewhere else closer to where some of my best friends live. So hopefully if things go well I might be closer to 3-4 of them. Good thing they live all around an area so that it makes a square and I want to be in the middle of that somewhere so that I can be closer to each of them then where I am now which is 3 hours plus away. We will see how that goes. That won't be for a few more months, close to my birthday in March so then we will have things in line and know where we are going etc.

I am going to be more involved in blogging this upcoming new year. I am not only going to continue with the "Behind the Blogger" challenge that I do every other week on Wednesday's but, I am going to be doing other challenges as well as doing my own giveaways again and be involved in blog hops and things for my own giveaways too. I am completely hooked on the blog hops :) So I will def be doing more of those and giving away Paypal cash and Amazon Gift Cards. Those are my 2 favorite things to give out so that's probably what I'll stick too for now. So please be on the look out for those upcoming things!

I'll also be planing on sharing some things that I find on a daily basis from an awesome site that I fell in love with - so be on the look out for that as well :) 

Wishing you all a great weekend and fabulous and awesome start to the new year!! 

Much love always

If I Told You That - Whitney Houston and George Michael




My heart is still breaking over the passing of George Michael a few days ago on Christmas morning...and I am a huge fan of Whitney as well and still can't believe that she's gone...so I was on Youtube last night and just listening/watching to different videos and I happened to come across this video/song...I never knew that they sang together! 

So after listening to this song and just watching the sweet chemistry I think that they have I wanted to share it with all of you....its a great upbeat song..they really sound pretty awesome together!!

RIP George and Whitney...always will love and remember you both...

#BehindTheBlogger End of the Road


  Hi everyone, thank you for stopping in to read my blog today. I am happy to participate in this #BehindTheBlogger again this week. This week the theme or phrase rather is "End of the Road".

  So the first thing that came to my mind was things coming to an end...fits perfectly with this being the last week of 2016. For me, I am excited to be ending this year and I'm looking forward to what the upcoming new year has in store for me and for all of us.

  I have always loved the song "End of the Road" by Boyz II Men. One of my all time faves...being that my first love dedicated that song to me as one of "our" songs....It's beautiful. I haven't listened to it in quite some time but I still know that I know the words to it word for word like I just heard it yesterday....





  With this year coming to an end..there has been so many deaths of celebs this year...this month. I know that people leave us on a daily basis but, it just gives me that much more of a blessed feeling for waking up every morning.....I grew up listening to Prince who we lost at the beginning of the year I believe Feb or so and David Bowie....and then others in between so many this year...and then last month Florence Henderson...I grew up watching her on Nick @ Nite...Brady Bunch was one of my all time fave shows...my heart breaks...it just makes me realize that I'm getting older even if I'm only in my lower 40's...still just makes me realize how time is flying....And then Alan Thicke...Growing Pains...so heartbreaking again...and then today I just found out about George Michael passing over the weekend....and Carrie Fisher...just so many.....John Glenn....and so many more...


  I didn't mean for this post to sound depressing or anything like that, I just want to say please look at your loved one or call them or write them and just tell them how much they mean to you! Tell them and enjoy the moments the little ones that you have with them because we just never know when it could be the last time you spend with them or they with you....not to be depressed and not live life to the fullest but just be grateful, thankful and blessed that we are still living on this earth and even though we go through rough times and sometimes don't even know if we will make it through the rough storms that life sometimes throws at us...just enjoy and take in the moment...enjoy life...if you can take the day off and spend it with that someone special do so! If you can take a vacation and just enjoy spending time with your friends, family and loved ones do it!

  I know that we all have to work and make a living and that we all get busy and before you know it you haven't talked to your friends or family etc in awhile...make a point to even just say have a good day in text each day or something just sweet and let them know that you care.

  I try to do that with a few of my closest friends and I admit I've slacked for one reason or another, maybe it was b/c I didn't feel good or because I was working a ton or whatever with the holidays we all get crazy busy but just stop and take the minute to say something to them let them know that you are there for them and care for them.

  I hope that you all have a good rest of the year with very little heartbreak and storms in your life and start off the new year on a great note...take it all in...enjoy life as much as you can..

Much love always and thank you again for stopping in and reading my blog....really appreciate it..
