Turkey Trot!

So I officially signed Emma and myself up for the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving!

It's going to be lots of fun and a great way to burn calories... allowing us to eat more later in the day :o) That's my reasoning behind running anyway :o)

If there's one thing I love...

it's a product review.


I could sit on-line for hours reading reviews on clothing, shoes, beauty products, household products, you name it.  If someone has reviewed it, I'll read about it.

Which brings me to this:

The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Systems.

I have been checking this guy out for a while now, but last night I seriously submerged myself in reviews on it, which has left me at a cross road.

Here's the dilemma: 
  1. It's pricey.  If there's anything I can get over/talk myself into, it's making an investment.  Everything I've read about this is that it is exactly that-a skinvenstment.  Isn't that cute?  
  2. There are too many options.  
    • There's the Mia-which I love because it's a mini.  And it's travel-appropriate.  But then again, none of them are that gigantic.  I like the little charger.  Do I want one that has a bigger cradle to charge it?  It's also the cheapest.  But in the grand scheme of things, is $50 that much more?  And I've found a couple coupon codes and other sites that sell the Mia, and other versions cheaper.  It only comes with the sensitive brush head.  Do I need other brush heads?  It also only has one speed and a one-year warranty.
    • There's the Classic-which pushes me towards this train of though..."It's the classic.  The original.  Why would I get something else besides the first one?  The whole "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" idea.  It is bigger.  Is bigger better?  It comes with the choice of the sensitive or normal brush head?  Which do I choose?  The Classic holds a charge longer than the Mia.  The Classic also has two speeds-low & normal and a two-year warranty.
    • Lastly, the Plus-has all the bells and whistles.  And honestly, when have I ever been known to not go with the bells and whistles?  This has a sensitive brush head and body brush head that I could use on the rest of my body.  It also comes with trial sizes of their cleansing products.  Also has a long charge life.  
So there ya have it.  What do you guys think?  Do any of you have a Clarisonic?

    SEC East Championship!

    Last night, South Carolina Gamecocks beat the Florida Gators to clinch the SEC East Championship. This is a huge feat for my school. When they brought Spurrier on as head coach in 2005, this was a big goal for him to accomplish. Everyone had such high hopes from him. But something that was hard for South Carolina to do was recruit the kind of players it takes for a team to win the SEC East. Remember, we are in the same confrence as Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee, all at one point in time, being huge power houses in college football.  This year though, we beat them all.  Even the #1 ranked team in the country, Alabama.  We did have some losses, Auburn, Kentucky & Arkansas (all SEC teams) but I think that's pretty typical for South Carolina.  They have to keep it real.  Anyway, I could not be prouder of my school and what they've accomplished this year.  Here's to December 4th.  Wish I could go to Atlanta and see us take on Auburn one more time, hopefully redeeming ourselves! 

    The reason we have done so well this year is because of this man right here.  Marcus Lattimore- I love you.

    Opinions please!

    With my friends & family coupon, I may have just purchased these two beauties from Piperlime.

    The gray ones are an OTK style which I'm not 100% sold on, I'm going to have to see how they look on.  And the black ones are similar to my brown boots I ordered last year!  I'm hoping both work out beautifully!

    Friends & Family Starts Tomorrow!

    So I really feel like Give & Get snuck up on me this time!

    As you guys know, a couple times  a year, Gap chooses a few charities that we can pick from.  I've chosen The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  5% of whatever you buy with my coupons gets donated!  Cool, huh?

    I ended up resending my e-mail invites out to the people I've sent them too before, so if you receive one in your e-mail, you know why!  If you'd like to receive one, please your e-mail address in the comments and I'll be more than happy to send you one!

    If you're not into commenting, you can click here.  But this invite isn't good on-line, just the e-mail ones are, if that makes sense. 

    Happy shopping!

    Vacation-All I ever wanted!

    So I get a mini-vacay starting now!

    The past couples weeks have been pretty busy at work with us gearing up for Holiday.  I just got back last night from working in Jacksonville, NC to help them get their store set up as well.  So needless to say, I am ready for a weekend away!

    I'm meeting Rena in Columbia to go see our friend Caroline in Legally Blonde, the musical.

    I think I'm also going to go tailgate for the game on Saturday.  We don't have tickets but it will still be fun to go down there.   I miss going to football games so much!

    Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend!
