Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

At one time, my dad agreed to put a quarter in a swear jar every time he said a naughty word. I was stoked because I was gonna make some easy money. I don't say bad words so it was easy for me. I think he put a few quarters in before telling me he'd "owe me" the change. My dreams of a big cash cow were soon dying. 
So what's my new solution to help stop those little cussers? You've all seen the scene in A Christmas Story where Ralphie says THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the 'F-dash-dash-dash' word and his mother makes him put soap in his mouth. Well, I found a potty mouth soap you can give your loved ones to help end their profanity problem (or just as a gag gift).
No need to worry because the 3.5 oz soap is made with all-natural, non-toxic ingredients (Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Glycerin of Vegetable Origin, Purified Water, Titanium Dioxide). But it does have a yucky taste that will remind the recipient to choose their words more wisely.
It amazes me that our culture is becoming ruder, cruder, and more acceptable of people having a potty mouth. Purchase your Potty Mouth Soap here to teach a lesson or just for a good laugh (great stocking stuffer).

Need something fun and different to do? Try visiting the Empress Theatre for a play. Take an adventure to historic main street in Magna, UT, to a theatre that has been there for almost 100 years!
A little history:
The venue was built in 1916 by to provide burlesque entertainment to Kennecott miners. In 1917-1950's, the theatre started showing movies until it went out of business. In 1978, Stephen Barker purchased the Empress and Gem Theatres to renovate them. Leo W. Ware, a local actor, bought the building in 1983 and worked for over 10 years to finish renovating the Empress for live theater. In 1985, the Empress Theater was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Super cool history, huh?!

Today,  volunteers, actors, and board members of Oquirrh Hills Performing Arts Alliance (non-profit) bring us several shows each year to promote culture and the arts in Utah. That means they need our ticket purchases or donations to be able to keep bringing us quality shows.
The building is very quaint. I think that allows the audience to feel like they are part of the show and several times the audience interacted with the guests. I saw Kiss Me, Kate tonight. The performance was very fun. It's a great idea for a family night, birthday party, date night, or a fun girl's night out.

Above is a list of the remaining shows for the 2014 Season. Make sure you pick up tickets to at least one of these performances!
If you text Empress to 74499, you can get on their text list to remind you about upcoming shows and they will send you a text for $1 off your concessions purchase. Deal!

Vist their website to buy tickets, get directions, or audition for an upcoming show.

Follow the Empress Theatre on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Hooked on phonics didn't work for me.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I am over my problem of wearing necklaces I wrote about a few years ago in this post. I have even managed to step it up and wear statement pieces. Yes, that's a lot of attention at my neckline. But, I love them. Just look at this one from Majestical Jewelry in the photos below.

It came with matching earrings too. This girl loves to accessorize.

Majestical is a high fashion online only jewelry store. I love shopping online. The store specializes in handmade jewelry and statement pieces. They have a HUGE variety (charms, fashion, silver, gemstone, and pearl plus bracelets and earrings) and add new, unique pieces all the time. They also have a super cute fashion blog that can help you stay up-to-date with your wardrobe. Quality jewelry and fantastic advice...I couldn't ask for more...unless they gave away dates with James Franco with every order (a girl can dream).

I have a special code (15DOLLARSOFF) to share with you for $15 off orders of $55 or more. Trust me, it wouldn't be hard to spend that much after you look at all they offer on the site. I know I have my eye on a few items (probably too many)!

I'm going to admit something. I sometimes watch The Bachelor. I watched the 18th season of the show even though I thought Juan Pablo was a bad decision (mainly because I couldn't understand what he was saying on the season before).
Anyway, the season finale was lame. Am I right or am I right?! And I think everyone from the Nikki (the girl "liked" the most by JP), previous show participants, Chris Harrison (the host), and the audience.
When I grow up and have Mr. Awesome propose to me, I don't just want him to say he kinda likes me. I hope that I will be a person that when my guy is at work and his coworkers are sitting around the conference table complaining about all of the things they don't like about their spouses, he will stand up and say, "You know what...It totally sucks to be your guys because my wife rocks!" TRUTH. 

I don't see that relationship lasting, but hey, a girl has to get her magazine headlines while she can.

She told me she going to the dog park. 
Next thing I know, I find her like this...

I walked in to a local gym this afternoon to find out about signing up for a membership. I walked up the counter and kinda embarrassed myself:
ME: I want to find out about starting a relationship.
ME: Wait, what?! MEMBERSHIP. I meant membership.
Awkward stare from gym employee.
Strange comment from really old lady telling me I might be in the wrong place.
ME laughing: I don't know where that word came from.
Other people at counter trying not to laugh.

Let's just say I went back the next day to sign up.

Bath SCALE Of A Time

I think I have finally met my match....age 33.
  • It's not as comfortable to just sleep anywhere
  • I bruise more easily
  • I can't just eat anything and be cool
  • It takes longer to recover if I crash
What is happening?
Next week, I am getting a gym membership. I always used to say it didn't matter how much I weighed, but how I felt. Well, this year is kicking my butt in both. So I am putting a scale in my bathroom. UGH.
pretty cool because it:
  • illuminates for you to read it 
  • measures weight up to 400 lbs / 180 kg (I promise I won't ever not be able to stand on it or even come close to the limit)
  • has a digital LCD display and electro-mechanical dial 
  • can switch between lbs and kg
  • has an oversized platform made of impact-resistant tempered glass (so it looks cool and classy)
  • is light weight (not huge and clunky)
  • runs on 3 AAA batteries (totally included) 
  • automatically turns off to conserve battery life
The scale is auto-calibrated and captures precise measurements when you step on. The truth might hurt (in my case right now), but the scale will always be honest with you. Another super cool feature to also get accurate numbers is it lets you set and alarm to check your weight at the same time each day. I never thought the day would come where I had to be more careful, but I am glad I now have great equipment to help me on my new journey with the next 30 years.
