Can we Make America Beautiful?

Every morning I walk my dog, Frank, and we come across some part of the neighborhood that is an absolute mess.  People pollute and throw trash out all over, they don't even care its on their lawns, which really irks me. 
Let's make America beautiful-- one block at a time!  Take pride in your lawn.  Don't throw out trash on the street or sidewalk.  The Wendy's across the street from me always has trash in the parking lot, and the crazy thing is the employees go out there to clean it up once or twice a day!  People are just self-obsessed and blind in what they do really impacts and affects the neighborhood or city.  
I am going to make it a point to clean up my block this spring.  Are you up for a challenge?  Messy sidewalks NO MORE!!  Poor Frank can't take it!!

trying to update my life!

I think I have over extended myself.  Its a tough realization when i wake up from a dream more tired than when I went to sleep.  Last night, I had a dream I was shoveling gravel at my parents home, and when I awoke, I was sore, tired, and my back hurt!  Very weird, and a sign I need to r e l a x .

So, this weekend I ave plans to organize.  I have a lot going on.  I am a Realtor, secretary, crafter, baker, Avon Rep, and writer.  Its tough, but there has to be a way to revamp this site to reflect it all.
Yes, I have joined the likes of Twitter-- follow me on twitter  @lisaleeworks.
I am also giving away MYSTERY BOXES of beauty products on  Search for mystery box of beauty and place a bid!  Yes, you can probably guess the brand, but can you guess the products.  Starting bid is $10 for a medium flat rate shipping box from the post office filled with over $100 worth of items.

Product Review: Emergen-C

Let me start off by saying I am NOT A DOCTOR, PHARMACIST, or anyone who matters in the health field.  This is not medical advice, and you should do your own research!  Okay.  That being said, I love this product.
Emergen-C is a vitamin packet unlike any other.  Mix the contents of one packet in 4-6 ounces of water. Wait for the fizzing to stop and drink.  I feel a burst of calm energy minutes later!  Emergen-C is a dietary supplement that comes in a handful of flavors.  It boasts that it contains 1,000 mg Vitamin C along with 7 B Vitamins.  Why do I love it?  I took two trips to Vegas this year, and I didn't pack any of this supplement with the first trip, but then I felt awful after the first night, barely any sleep, and a slight hangover.  The sundry shop in Bally's does sell it, but its like $3 for 2 packets!  After taking one, I felt better about an hour later.  So, for my second trip to Vegas, I packed enough for me and AB...and it paid off!  I took one each morning when I woke up and another before we started up for the evening.  
I hate being sick, and I try to avoid it at all costs.  Unfortunately, that is hard to do sometimes when you work in an office atmosphere and come into contact with a lot of people.  Especially during flu season.  So, for the past few days I have felt worn out, tired, and achy.  Its that time of year.  We had a blizzard 2 weeks ago, and now everything is melting and its 50 degrees outside.  That screams, "Time to get sick, Lisa!"  I have been taking 1-2 packets of this a day for about a week.  I do feel better temporarily.  They don't taste bad, and you can drink them like a shot if you want.  Now, I am not saying this is a miracle cure by any means, I just like it, and I think it does a great job at making me feel better.  I highly recommend the Super Orange flavor.  Pink Lemonade is good, too.

Cupid's calling

A local jeweler, Alberts, offers free wedding services in the store on Valentine's Day. I love reading each year how many couples take advantage! Maybe non-traditional, but very sweet!

I found this article interesting.
I can understand Nevada--because when AB and I go, we have wonderful meals at night, but during the day...junk food city!!

Winter Warm Up!! About Time!

Its about time for a winter warm up!  I am so excited that we will hit (hopefully) 32 degrees tomorrow!  What, oh what, will I do?? would be nice to walk the Tank (my doggie) and wear him out.  Poor little guy has been homebound and totally stir crazy since the blizzard hit last week.  We go potty and come right back in.  This morning, it felt warmer,so we took a walk down the street (all the sidewalks are still 2 ft of snow) and he had a great time.  The tank was so happy to get out and explore!  I am hoping to walk some side streets and drop off my new catalogs to some neighbors.

What are you doing this weekend? I can't wait to make heart shaped sugar cookies tomorrow.  Sounds cheesey, but I want to learn how to make and perfectly ice cookies with old fashioned Royal Icing (which is made with egg whites).   I also have a great contest coming up for Campaign 7.  The winner will get a gift bag worth $125!  More on that soon.

Enjoy the warm up if you live in the Midwest!!  Whoo Hoo!!
