4 Questions, 1 Answer.

Hey Y'all.  So I have been beyond busy lately but promise to catch up super soon :)  Until then, how about another dose of 
4 Questions, 1 Answer.
Take one question, answer fully and the others, one word only.  Get it, got it, GOOD!

1}  What has been your favorite vacation destination?    OBX.     

2}  What is your least favorite feeling in the world?    Anxiety.     

3}  What song pulled you through that tough spot?    "I Can Only Imagine."  by Mercy Me.  This song was released back before my Aunt had passed away.  It was one of her favorites.  Our family choose this song for her Memorial Ceremony in Louisiana and her burial in Alabama.  I remember the first time I heard it after I had gotten the news.  I was just driving in my truck and listening to this song and crying.  Those moments when you are completely alone and can let it all out.  At that moment though, I did not feel alone.  I felt her with me.  In the seat beside me singing her song.  I randomly hear it from time to time when I am scanning the radio.  Alone, but with her.  Sometimes, I cry.  Sometimes, I talk.  Mostly, its both.  It pulled me through then.  It pulls me through, when I do not even realize I need it, til I hear it.  It makes me just slow down and feel things I so often try not to, but need to.

4}  What item of clothing do you feel most confident in?    stretchy.

I scored ;)


So in case I had not previously mentioned I am a Craigslist stalker.
I stalk the free section of Craigslist so much that I went set up notifications on my phone so that I know as soon as something new is posted.  I have got quite a few things this way.  A lot of junk is posted but the only way to get some gems is to be the first one to jump.  None the less all that was for nothing cause this righteous find was not from the free section.

As I was perusing the Baby & Kid section I saw an ad for Blakelys formula.
I had the guy send me the info so that I can check for recalls and since all was good we met up.  Now let me tell you what I got... 

Two Boxes of Gerber Good Start Cooler Bags.  12 Bags/box.  Total 24 Bags.

In each bag there is an ice pack and a can on formula.
Yes, a 12.7 oz can of formula.  At retail you can get a 6 pack of these cans for  about $82.  I now have 24 of them, retail about $328.  

Jay and I set up an assembly line to remove all bags from the plastic and pile the ice packs and cooler bags and I let him form a pyramid with the cans.  He was ecstatic about this mundane task just cause he got to make a pyramid, another score for this Momma.

So now my 7 month old daughter has enough formula to last her til she is on cow's milk.  Awesome!  We can always use ice packs for something or another, especially coming into the hottest time of the year.  So are you wondering how much I paid for this $328 worth of formula....  
$25!!  Yep!!  How great is that!?!?

Now, I am left with one problem.
What the heck do I do with 24 cooler bags??  Any ideas??

Round One 4Q1A

Hey you guys!  (I totally said that in my Electric Company voice)
So finally a change up from a Wordless or Wordful its the all new...

 "Four Questions, One Answer" 
 done by the amazing Lacey in Love.

The instrucciónes are simple.  You choose ONE question to answer at length and answer the rest of the questions with ONE word only.  
I favor simplicity so I dig it.

1} What is your least favorite nickname/pet name?  Sissy.  

2} Where were you when you received your first kiss?  I was in a boys bedroom, and super young, like first grade!  Looking back I was there a lot, where the hell were my 'rents?  I would ride over there on my bike and stay for hours with only his teenage sister watching us.  I was either really trusted or really neglected, I will get back to you on that...

3} Do you believe in karma?  indubitably.  

4} What is your favorite Summertime treat?  frozen.
