The Walmart Nightmare Finally Comes to an End

Well if anyone has been following my posts about my worst Walmart trip ever, it has finally come to an end. After going back and forth with Walmart and their claims department, a very kind woman named Joan was able to help me out. She apologized numerous times for the way customer service at Walmart acted and treated us. She also had me go get an estimate for the rug in my van and she printed me out a check for $ 1,360! That's how much it's going to replace the rug plus tax and labor. So this nightmare finally came to an end Friday with the best conclusion possible. I'm very grateful there's still decent people in the world and she took responsibility for her companies wrong doings.

A little bit more about my Walmart experience

Well we have been going back and fourth with Walmart, their claims department, Walmart Corporate, etc. Well corporate is pretty pissed off with Walmart itself and the way they handled the situation. I mean what customer service looks at you and says "well you left the store so there's nothing we can do about it!" Umm how were we supposed to know the bottle was open and was going to leak all over my seats and my floor of my van. I will have to take pictures to show everyone. I'm still pretty pissed about the whole situation. I hope they figure this out soon! I'll keep everyone updated because as of right now we are waiting on the claims department to call us back. Wish me luck!

Makeup of the Day #MOTD

So here is my #MOTD. I am going to try and post at least one look a day. Hopefully I can keep up with it. I am pretty bad at posting everyday right now. But anyways here is what I have on and it's pretty simple

Lips: N.Y.C. Lip plumping Big Bold Lipgloss in Coral to the Max. Love this. It goes on nice and smooth and has a bright bold color.

Eyes: Julep Maven Gel Eye Glider in blackest black (my favorite eyeliner at the moment), and Loreal Paris Lash Out Butterfly Mascara in Black/Noir. It makes my lashes look huge! 

You can buy everything but the Julep Gel Glider at Walmart. If you're not a Julep Maven yet I have a link up on my blog that you can click and join!

Have a great day

Our Worst Walmart Experience to Date

So last night after our daughters game (she's a cheerleader, but that's a post for another time), we had to run to Walmart for a few things. We picked up laundry detergent, bleach, a frozen pizza, hot dogs, a movie, 2 energy drinks, powdered freshener for the rug, and scrubbers for the toilet. Well when we were done we checked out and went to the car. My fiancé placed all the bags on our back seat thinking nothing of it at the time. We all got in the car and went home. We get home and my fiancé goes to get the bags out of the car and notices the back seat is soaked and the one bag is wet. Well it was the bag with the bleach. The bleach was apparently opened and leaked on everything, including my backseat of my van!! Now I'm pissed. So I tell him, well we are returning it and letting them know they need to do something about it because this is not our fault! They lady even put everythjng in one bag, except for the pizza and hot dogs. So everything in the bag was destroyed! So we get back in the car and head back to Walmart. We get there and my fiancé goes back in with the bag and explains everything to customer service. They replaced everything in the bag, but then told him since we left the store there's nothing they could do about my van and handed him a ten dollar gift card and sent him on his way. Well let's just say we went home an called corporate! This is not the end of this. I shouldn't be held accountable for something that is not my fault. My van is bleached and smells horrible. You can't use my back seat as of right now. I guess we will have to wait and see what corporate says.

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 fiancé, 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 fiancé 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.
