We Entered! Please "Like" Our Picture! :)

We decided to enter the Sobe Contest! We made a fun pair of SoBe earrings (made from the bottle caps of the SoBe Lifewater bottles!). Took a while to make, but they came out cute! My little sister helped, she was the model for the earrings. She also picked the color combination, purple and white (both our favorites). She was exited to help, so it was a fun little project.

We would appreciate your votes, all you have to do is head on over to SoBe's Facebook and "Like" them, then look for our comment (see below) and click "Like". Thats it! :) Thought we'd give it a try, we'd love to win. Voting ends on July 1st., so vote before then :)

Step 1: Go to SoBe's Facebook page, "Like" them
Step 2: Now click here and "Like" this picture.
Thanks a billion for those of you who take your time and vote for us :) We are HUGE SoBe lovers in this household and would love to win!

Unexpected Expenses Just Pile On!

Its no surprise I like saving money, but I also like the finer things in life (ok, mostly only electronics). I do unbelievable research before I buy something, scout for the lowest prices and even sales with gift cards. There are so many things I've bought in my lifetime that I thought I wouldn't have to replace, and others that would last for a long long time. Unfortunately, I've been wrong about it about 70% of the time.

For example, my Sony Vaio laptop I bought three years ago and has been running mediocrely for the last 2. The blue screen comes on so often that I try to avoid using it, but as a College Student, its impossible. Another example is the Linksys router I have (or had I should say). Bought about 3 1/2 years ago and completely stopped working on Saturday. I called the customer service number and was advised to "just buy a new one, you've had it long enough" by the outsourced Indian customer service rep. How ridiculous, right? I don't buy routers based on their "3 1/2 year life span". I would go into details about what the problem with it was, but it makes no difference. The warranty was only 1-year and to renew it for 2 weeks was $29.99, so I said screw it and just bought a new Netgear router on Sunday. I am good with electronics, I like to open things up and play with the circuit board and wires and fix it. BUT when it comes to setting up routers, I detest it! It took me 3 hours, and I am not electronically-challenged!

I can go on about things I buy with no intention of having to re-buy just a few years later, but won't. Its just frustrating having all these unexpected expenses piling up when whats coming in isn't enough. I sometimes think some companies do this purposely just to keep their income coming in. I wish things would go wrong in the first year so the manufacturer's 1-year warranty can cover it and just send me a new one! Why can't life be that perfect?

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #8)

This is my 8th week on the Nutrisystem program. I was so exited last week to hitting 20lbs in 7 weeks. I accomplished it and feel great that I did! It goes to show me that I can do it if I put my mind to it. Nutrisystem and exercise have been great to me, and are the only things helping me lose weight. The heat this past week was horrible and has been a lazy week for me. I only had the energy to work out 1 day out of the week and it shows from what I lost, which was very minimal but am happy that I lost something.

The Nutrisystem program has very easy to follow, sometimes it feels like I'm eating too much, but this time eating good food, not bad. Self-motivation has been keeping me going, and getting my first Nutribear a couple weeks back helped! This week I got another little surprise in the mail, my Commitment Nutribear, all Nutrisystem members that hit the 20lb. lost mark receives this cute little purple guy. These rewards are a great motivation to keep on going, its wonderful to have the opportunity to show them off too :)

This weeks weight-loss was low, but I expected it. I can't wait to keep pushing myself and lose more weight. I have now made a personal goal to lose a minimum of 10lbs. a month over the next 2 months I have left. :) Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey, my photos on Flickr or my videos on YouTube! Now its time, my weight loss for the 7th week on Nutrisystem:

Weight Loss:
-6.2 lbs. [5/1/11] 
-3.1 lbs. [5/8/11]
-2.6 lbs. [5/15/11]
-1.8 lbs. [5/22/11] 
-2.5 lbs. [5/29/11]
-2.6 lbs. [6/5/11]
-2.3 lbs. [6/12/11]
-1.1 lbs. [6/19/11]
Total: 22.3 lbs.
