Sunglasses for less than $2 each from Graveyard Mall!

One of my favorite deals at Graveyard Mall is on again today! You can get 10 pairs of Women's sunglasses for only $9.99!! (Retail is $199.99) You get a random assortment of sunglasses, so you do not choose them, but if even a couple pairs are ones you like, it is totally worth it! This offer is while supplies last, so head over here to get yours! Nice preparation for summer, right?! BTW-with shipping you will be spending about $16 total.

Dear Wyoming, why do you hate me?!

Well, readers, did you miss me yesterday?! I know a couple of scheduled things went up, but I was actually on the road ALL day driving to Salt Lake. Because I think of all my readers as friends, I thought I would share with you all about the experience I had...feel free to laugh at my misfortune...I am laughing now that it is over (or maybe I am laughing from lack of sleep...)
If you managed to read through this week's Tuesday's Travels: Salt Lake City you may remember that I am not a fan of Wyoming (as mentioned in the "Getting There" section. If you did not read that blog, you may want to really quickly click here and just read the "Getting There" section so you know how I feel. to put it lightly, I really, REALLY dislike Wyoming in general. I ALWAYS get stuck there.

Last time we were stopped for 5 hours for apparently no reason, so as I drove I wondered what new weather emergency Wyoming would invent to trap me in the prison they call a state on the PERFECT travel weather day that was yesterday. Well, evidently even Wyoming could not come up with a weather emergency to force drivers to stay there this time, but that crafty, crafty state still managed to trap me!

There was a portion of I-80 near Rawlins where there is a 14 mile stretch or construction, During that stretch, Westbound traffic (me) is moved over to the Eastbound side of the freeway and it is a 2 way road with one lane going each way. Well, about 5 miles before that stretch, traffic suddenly stopped. STOPPED! And it took us over 2 hours to get TO that construction, then another hour+ to get through it. What happened you ask? A Fed Ex truck fell over. (That was a bit scary-and please do not take my annoyed and slightly sarcastic tone in the rest of this email to mean that I am insensitive to the seriousness of that situation-I sincerely hope the driver is OK and that all will be well with that!)

Now, as you can imagine, at this point in my travels through Wyoming, I was not surprised that I was stuck there so long, but at least it was only 3+ hours this time and I did not have to pay for a hotel!

We have to charge the hotel on our Credit card and get reimbursed when we return. We just do not use the card, so when we tried to run it at check in it triggered a fraud alert and I had to call the CC company and verify who we were and that it was a valid charge before we could check in. So, 45 minutes later (after waiting on hold for that long), we finally got that done!

We finally got in the room in SLC around 12:30 am. The hotel we are staying at (paid for by my husband's work) is immaculate! I have NEVER experienced luxury like this. We are staying in the lowest level/cheapest option of room that was available to us for this conference and I cannot imagine what the higher levels must be like! We have a full living space and bedroom, and HUGE bathroom area. It is basically a suite, and is bigger and MUCH nicer than the apartment we lived in during Medical school. As I walked in the room I thought this must be a blessing for the hassles of the day!

We get a crib up here, tuck the kids in to bed. Our oldest 2 on the bed, the third child on the couch and the baby in her crib. The youngest 2 kids are so riled up they just want to run so I am fighting them, finally get them settled at about 1 am and I drag into bed. About 15 seconds later, my oldest rolls over in bed and projectile vomits all over her bed, the floor and me. WHAT?!

We have no supplies to deal with this and have to call housekeeping as we clean up the child and move everyone else (all but one child are now WIDE awake) into the living room area so as to keep them out of the barf. Our 3rd child still managed to break past me and cover his arms in it, so we end up with the oldest in the shower, the 3rd in the tub (they are separate) with dad helping them and me trying to keep the baby (she's actually 2) out of the room with the nastiness. It takes housekeeping about an hour to get up here and when they see it they look horrified and go to get more supplies.

Point of this graphically nasty story is that it was crazy and by the time all was said and done, I got everyone cleaned up, asleep and in their own sleeping area at 4 am and slept for all of 2 hours before the wake up call came for Wes's conference this morning.

It has been crazy, and I have a few things scheduled to go up this week on the blog, but I will try to add more as I get the chance. I already have some new SLC deals to post from this morning's newspaper, but will do that later from my parents' house. For now I am getting everyone dressed and we are going to go visit the fam.

More later!


Scrubbing Bubbles Extend a Clean Power Sprayer ROCKS!!! Read all about it!!

This is a repost from May 13, but I wanted to repost it because I really believe in this product and I am still loving using it! I also still have some coupons left to share with you and would LOVE to get some to you! Please read in the last paragraph what to do to get yours!!

I told you yesterday that as a member of Bzz Agent, I am sometimes contacted by them with information or deals for products. Well, I was lucky enough to be chosen to try out a new product for them, and I am really excited to tell you about it. Before I do, just know that they did send me a free product to try out, but all opinions expressed are my own!!

OK, if you know me personally, you know I HATE to clean. I have a few problems with it. 1-I HATE to put so much effort in with such little results, 2-I HATE the smell of cleaning supplies. Well, yesterday in the mail, I got my package containing my free sample of Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-A-Clean™ Power Sprayer from Bzz Agent to try! Thank goodness it came when it did because I happened to be cleaning all day yesterday preparing for my sister-in-law to come visit. As usual, I saved the bathroom for the end.

Here are a few things I was told about the Scrubbing Bubbles® Extend-A-Clean™ Power Sprayer by Bzz Agent:
  • Works over-time to fight soap scum and grime for up to 4 days with just one application
  • Features the first ever one-touch continuous sprayer, for complete ease of use
  • Designed for occasional deep cleaning
  • Safe for use on most bathroom surfaces including sinks, tiles, counters, showers and tubs
So, this thing has an awesome continuous spray that foams on and cleans like crazy.  Our bathroom sink was gross when we move din 2 years ago and in spite of great effort to make it shine, it never has. I sprayed this on let it sit for about a minute, then wiped it clean, and it was sparkly!! I could not believe it-fast, easy, and it worked well!! Minimal effort with great results! I was sold on that first spray! And guess what?! It has a smell I LIKE-it smells clean AND good.

I seriously loved this product, and the best part is that Bzz Agent sent me coupons that I can share with you. I have quite a few coupons for $5 off a starter kit (runs about $8.99) and $1 off refills (run about $3.99). So, if you would like a coupon to try this out, email me and let me know, and I will send out coupons on a first come, first served basis until my coupons are gone. Email me at with subject "Scrubbing Bubbles Coupon" and include your mailing address in the body of the email so I can mail you a coupon. Trust me, you will want to give this a try!!
