I can't believe I haven't blogged in over 16 months...

Wow, so I was cleaning out some old files, photos, etc. on the desktop and I realized that it had been a little while since I blogged. Holy crap -- 16 months?~!

I sure hope I didn't lose my lone reader! ;)

A sign

The Chapman family lost the youngest of their adopted children in a tragic accident earlier this year.

Believing in their Lord and Savior they prayed to God for a sign Maria was okay. God provided that sign the day after her death (forward to 4:53):

How GREAT thou art.

Works for Me Wednesday: Free VIN check!

With gas prices being what they are today I know many friends and family members are hoping to trade in their SUVs and trucks for more economical, fuel-efficient vehicles.

On the two occassions my husband and I've been car shopping we went straight home and ran a Carfax report to ensure the vehicle we were interested in wasn't a dud. (CarMax runs one on ALL used cars and doesn't charge for it!)

Today, while reading, I came across a GREAT find that's comparable (read: way better) to it's called VINcheck. This free (Hello, FREE!?) way to check out used cars for hidden histories of theft or damage is maintained by the National Insurance Crime Bureau, therefore, the information is accurate and reliable.

Honestly, I don't know if Carfax checks to see if a vehicle is reported lost or stolen, but THIS website does!

Free always "works for me" even if it's not on a Wednesday! :D

WFMW: Fighting the Frizz

It's summer in Hotlanta, ya'll, and you know what the means? Frizz.

Oh. My. Heavens. The frizz is bad, REAL bad.

I'm not a brand horse, but I have two products that I use in the summer to prevent my hair from looking like this:

or like this:

BioSilk Silk Therapy

and Herbal Essences' None of Your Frizziness Smoothing Balm

Both work *wonders* on my hair. It feels great and smells even better! The BioSilk costs a little more, but you can buy it at Ulta or your local drugstore for less than $12. Let me forewarn you: A little goes a LONNNNNNNNNNNNG way.

I paid $2 for the Herbal Essences and I was equally impressed with the results. I use a little more of this product mainly because it's texture is that of a squished bath bead, but I don't worry about using "too much" of the product because it seems to be more forgiving than the BioSilk.

** Surgeon General's Warning or a Girl Who Knows From Experience: Do not use both products together -- one or the other, people! :D **

Works for me! Go see Shannon over at Rocks In My Dryer and see what other helpful tips others are sharing! :D
