Welcome to The Cafe and happy Friday! Hope you all enjoyed your short work week. No Scandal update for you, what are we gonna do? I did watch Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots”, not trying to get addicted to another soap opera style show. I didn’t really like it, very predictable and I it didn’t really hold my interest. I try to support his efforts, I don’t get caught up in the negative talk about him. We try to go see some of his movies and I’ve been to one play. I didn’t even watch the sitcom, I don’t care for those at all.
Last Friday when we were on our trip, we took the girls to Rue 21 to buy a few pieces for summer. So we go to the shorts, they are buy 1 get 1 for $1. I like that, they were no more than $20. They go to the fitting room and both have on shorts that are way to short for my husband and I. I know that at times with children, you have to pick your battles, but this is one battle I couldn’t let them win. Those shorts were 1/2 inch from cheek area, nope not having it. I was surprised that both were disappointed when we said no, but I guess I shouldn’t be. My youngest said the famous, “all the girls wear them that short”. I answered with, “that’s their momma’s problem”. When they went to take off the shorts, I head over to find shorts for them that are a little more appropriate for my husband and I. We came to an agreement on four pairs of shorts, several tops and left the store as a happy family.
I’ve been pretty busy this week, my contract work is picking up and I’m working on a few things regarding the blog and other opportunities to earn income. One thing I’m learning with brands and companies approaching you for sponsored posts is you have to sit down and carefully review if the company or brand is someone you want to work with and not a quick way to make money. That is where I am this week, reviewing and making decisions. Not all money is good money. I’ve heard that all my life and I truly understand it now.
Just found a great new website for online deals. Daily Deal Superstore pulls together all the best deals into one search engine. It’s super easy to use – just set up a profile and then quickly find deals, with no email clutter or unwanted updates. And then you can actually earn money by sharing it on Facebook. This one takes online deals to the next level.
Have a good weekend and never give up on your dreams and aspirations!
