Graze Box Review

I subscribe to a snack box company called Graze Box. I get my boxes every two weeks. I believe you can get them monthly, weekly, or bi-weekly. Bi-weekly is my favorite. It's $6/box and my First and Fifth boxes were free. I've been a subscriber for a few months now. I just wanted to share with you what I received in my box this past week. 
First snack was banana caramel dippers. I actually love these. They are like a banana flavored cookie and you dip them in the caramel sauce. This is such a great pair. The two tastes are great together! I would've never thought of something like this on my own but I do love. This is actually the second time I received this in a box. So yummy!!
My second snack was cracking black pepper cashews. And yes I loved these too!! I really love cashews. They black pepper taste was a great touch of flavor. It wasn't too much. I need to order a bunch of these if I can. I'll have to look into that.
The third snack was called key lime pie. I didn't care for this at all. I don't really like lime. Now if it was lemon I probably would've loved it but lime not so much. I tried it but just couldn't bring myself to eat the whole thing. I tried giving it to my 3 year old and he wasn't having it either. Lol
My fourth and final snack was herby bread basket. It was a bunch of little crouton like snacks. They were yummy. Something I would eat again. I could eat them plain or add them to a salad. They had a subtle herbal taste to them.
I think this box is worth the 6$ an perfect for snackers. I like to take snacks from these boxes and keep some in my purse or car. They come in handy. You can also go on their website when you order boxes and help influence your box and what you want to try and taste. 

So give it a try!!

Logan Put A Screwdriver Thru His Foot

Yes you did read the title of my blog post right. My 3 year old, Logan, put a screwdriver thru his foot a couple weeks ago. That was one of the scariest things I've witnessed, that he has done yet. 
So we had just got back from a long, fun day at the beach. My fiancĂ©, his friend, and I were unpacking the car and I had sent our 14 year old daughter, my 10 year old cousin, and our 3 year old son out back to play until we were done and then I would start dinner. Well maybe ten minutes later I hear my son screaming and my daughter saying that he's bleeding and my fiances friend saying it's pretty bad. She gets him up to our front porch an we clean him up to look at it but the blood wasn't stopping. His foot just kept bleeding. So I of course start to panic. I asked how did this happen. From what was explained to me he had found one of his fathers flat head screw drivers and stabbed the ground and when his sister seen him do that she ran from across the yard to get it from him but she was too late because he picked it up and second time and stabbed his foot instead of the ground. Well I sent the girls over to my moms and to the emergency room we went. My poor baby was freaking out and crying. We couldn't calm him down or nothing. They initially wanted to look at his foot when checking him in so we did that and that's when we found out that he had put the screw driver all the way thru his foot and pulled it back out. So he had an open wound on the top and and the bottom. Well they did x rays and focus out he missed everything in his foot. He was very lucky. It took four of us holding him down for the Dr to put three stitches in the top of his foot. They didn't put any in the bottom because they wanted the foot to drain any infection if it were to get one. 
Well we went back a week later to get the stitches out. Two had fallen out on their own. He was very brave about letting them get the last one out. His foot healed really well. They said if it reopened or turns really red to come back. It's been about a month now and it's been doing really well. 
I must say he is now afraid of that screw driver. He knows better then to pick it up now. But boys will be boys. This was his first real injury and first time getting stitches but I'm pretty sure this won't be his last.

Is it too much to ask for???

Sitting here in my room all alone cleaning. Now let me just remind you I do have a fiancĂ© who sleeps in the same room and half this sh*t is his. I understand he works all week and usually only gets one day off, if that. His boss has him scheduled for over 45 hours a week and calls him all the time to come in if anyone else calls in. Sometimes he works over 12 hrs a day!! I understand yes he's tired, but I'm tired too. I can't go to bed til our 3 kids are sleeping, and I have to wake up by 645 to get our daughter of to school and usually our 3 yr old wakes up by then. I take care of 3 other kids after school that are not even ours. I cook and I clean up after everyone. So anyways yesterday since he had to work he said that he'd help me clean all day today because it was his day off... But what happens like always?? He wakes up late and then plays on his phone half the day.. Then he helps out with like one thing but keeps disappearing every two seconds. So I keek asking for help with our room an of course he can't do that. I'm stuck doing it alone like always. It pisses me off I do everything myself. His friends and co workers always come first. They call, he runs... I'm just getting sick of it. Am I over reacting??? Am I being selfish? Should I just suck it up and do everything myself always?? Tell me what you think.

Organizing my Blog

So I've come to the conclusion that my blog is no where near organized and is just kind of all over the place. Once I have my internet back up and running this coming week I really need to sit down and get it together!!! I want to be able to have different columns... Like recipes, favorite and least favorite makeup, reviews, advice, etc. I know this is going to be a long process because I have no idea where to start. Any advice is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Just a random post about me on this random Thursday

So I don't have an exciting title for this post. Honestly I don't even know how many people actually read my posts or follow my blog, if any. I don't know how interesting I actually am either. What I do know is that I am a normal 29yr old, mom of 3 who likes to blog and I love makeup and trying new products. I also love subscription boxes. It's always a fun surprise to have in your mailbox every month. I love doing reviews for companies but not all my posts are review related. I like to blog about everything and anything and I try to blog as much as everyone else but that proves to be a big task for me. I have my youngest home with me all day, everyday. Then I have my neice here too. They butt heads more then they get along. She's a big crier and that just takes a toll on anyone. Then by after school my two oldest are home along with two of their cousins. I find it exhausting everyday to just do normal things any person would do. I'm diabetic and have diabetic neuropathy, an under active thyroid (which makes me more tired then normal), my legs are always swollen and water pills don't help... I mean I am by no means looking for pity, I'm just saying that I just don't get to post as often as I like and I'm pretty sure I'm not half as interesting a some of these blogs (if not all of them) that I follow. So that's basically my post for today. Thanks for reading if you did!

Happy Mothers Day

I just wanted to stop and take the time today to wish every mother out there a Happy Mothers Day. I hope no matter where you are or what you did, you had a great day! I know I had a wonderful day just spending time with my 3 kids today. My 8 year old had his first soccer game of the season today an he played a great game! Now we are just finishing up dinner and getting ready for bed since there is school tomorrow and my oldest has a busy day tomorrow... 
I also have a busy day tomorrow with two back to back appointments.
So for now I will clean up and then wait til my hubby gets out of work so we can just relax. 
I'm also waiting the arrival of my mother. She is on her way home from Florida. I can't wait.

So I know I haven't been on my blog in awhile. We've had family members move in and out of our house like crazy, like we are some boarding house or something. Yet I would never turn away a family me never in need. It is nice to have our house back to ourselves now. Now all we have to do is clean it. Really good spring cleaning going on here. We've also had to travel to Massachusettes for cheer competition, only to come in last place because of stupid disqualifications. I've been sick the past two weeks because my niece that I watch came here sick and it made my blood sugar go haywire and made me really sick. Then today we had to put our daughter on a PINS petition. Which was a hard decision to make but it's something that has to be done. So yea there are many other things I can ramble on about but let's get into my upcoming reviews. I have some new subscription boxes I will be reviewing an blogging about on here, I also have other products like razors, Special K Coffee drinks, Oatmeal, and a few other things I want and need to review. Also I was chosen for the Sargento Vox Box. Yummy! So be on the lookout for some new posts from me in the next few days to couple of weeks!!! 

Have a great day!
