House Mouse

Last night I caught this cute little house mouse in the attic using a humane trap baited with a peanut butter covered Ritz cracker. I released him in the woods, hope he makes it to somewhere warm. Poor little guy!

Savvycents Wallet Review

I was actually really excited when I got the opportunity to review the Savvycents wallet. Everyone who commiserated with my post showing my overstuffed wallet can relate to the difficulties of keeping cash, credit card, receipts, coupons, store cards, membership cards, insurance cards, pharmacy cards, licenses, change together in an organized way. I immediately started transferring everything over to the cute patent pink leather wallet and was amazed at how much space this thing really has in it-I fit everything from my old overstuffed wallet plus more into it and it still kept it's sleek, streamlined shape. 


I love that I have the option to keep coupons in the accordion style pockets-even hard core couponers will appreciate having a place for important coupons with lugging their full coupon binders around. The convenient coin pouch on the back makes it easy to make change, and it even has a place to hold a pen or pencil in the inside fold. The fact that it zips all the way around is really nice-you can take it out to a restaurant as a clutch and not have to worry about anything falling out. This is the perfect "all-in-one" product-I'm really happy with how much easier it is to stay organized!

Fruit of the Loom Bra Review

When I received a package of new Fruit of the Loom sports bras to test, I admit I was kind of skeptical. I do a lot of high impact work outs and I simply didn't view Fruit of the Loom as an "athletic" type company that could understand how important a good quality, well-built sports bra could affect a woman's comfort while she's working out. Trying to keep an open mind, I opened up the box. The first thing I noticed was how cute the bras were-they came in a great variety of styles and colors that would blend seamlessly into any woman's workout gear wardrobe.

I decided to throw one on before heading out to the gym. I chose the hot pink Shirred Front Racerback. I couldn't get over how comfortable it was from the minute I put it on! It fit like a glove and the racerback straps were SO comfortable. I really loved the style and color-it also comes in black and white so it's very versatile. This line specializes in petite sizing and I found it very easy to adjust the straps which are typically too loose on me. When I arrived at the gym and started my workout I was blown away by how much support this bra actually gave, even during a higher impact activity like my aerobics class. It looked really cute paired with my usual yoga pants and I got several compliments from other women in the class-they couldn't believe it was Fruit of the Loom either!

If you're a petite girlie like myself and are in the market for a cute, stylish, comfortable sports bra, definitely check this brand out. Their new product line has completely exceeded my expectations.

Right now they're running a special promotion where you can receive $5 off your entire order by using the discount code B2BFRUIT. (It's like getting the shipping for free!) Code expires December 15, 2010. Check it out ladies!

House fire that I videotaped a few blocks from my boyfriend's house, really scary!

A really scary house fire that I videotaped a few blocks from my boyfriend's house. The house is completely gutted, but luckily everyone made it out ok. The owner sustained severe burns on his feet going back in to rescue his dogs.

Finally found Haagen Dazs green tea ice cream!

On a road trip back from New Jersey we finally found one of our new favorite ice cream flavors-Haagen Dazs Green Tea!! This stuff is so creamy and refreshing, I really wish it was easier to find locally. The Haagen Dazs "five" flavor line is also pretty good, the ginger is incredible. What are your favorite ice creams flavors? Has anyone else tried the green tea flavor? I'm hooked!!
