I'm Back!

I’m baaack!! Thank you to all new and existing followers for sticking around!

If you’ve been following me on twitter, you might have heard I went through a computer meltdown. SO not fun. In fact, life has thrown a lot of crap at me lately which has made me feel like crap. [Hey, I’m a donut, not a toilet! Throw only sweet stuff, okay? ;)]

BUT, I am going to take charge of my life now and be the change that I want to see happen. I’m feeling a bit energized right now…but please keep me accountable if you don’t see any blogging or tweeting from me for a month! I do see all the comments, emails, and tweets, so please do contact me if it seems like I’m falling off the bandwagon.

With a renewed blogging spirit,

I'm stuck living with someone who is irrational, frequently angry and abusive. Feeling very trapped with no way to get out. Desperate. I must get out of here soon. But I need money & a place to run to. I could try my hand at life in the wilderness, but I may not survive. This is my little cry for help.

Yummy: Recipe Postcards

Don't these recipe postcards at the Digital Room Blog look amazing?
It's a cool way of organizing and presenting the recipes for your yummy treats -- and the pictures certainly help in deciding what to make and bake! Or, you could pass them out at a bake sale, or give them as a hint to your friends. (c'mon, you know you want to make me some donuts!)

Imagine: hundreds of postcards featuring donuts, brownies, cakes, and more! *drools*

The Digital Room is offering other postcard inspiration and a contest for some free postcard printing. It ends soon, so go check it out! If you do win and make some yummy-looking postcards, feel free to send one my way. :)

My experience with Digital Room: I have used the services of both Digital Room and Uprinting (Digital Room's parent company). The ordering process is simple and they are easy to work with. You can expect really fast proofs, and... they actually reply to email!

Good luck, and even if you don't win, you can enjoy dreaming about those delectables above. ;)

No-Go BlogHer party

Not going to BlogHer? ToBeThode and Musings of a Marfan Mom are hosting a No-Go BlogHer Party and it's easy to join in. I'm up for some blogging fun, so here goes! Please leave me some love!
  1. When did you start blogging?
    This is my first blog! I just started about a month or two ago. (If you count twitter as a form of blogging then it's been way longer.)

  2. Why did you start blogging?
    My intent is to filter the yummy from the crummy and give it to y'all straight. I want to share my honest opinions about products and services, life experiences, and to share some great giveaways and deals I've stumbled upon. I'd also love to host some giveaways in the future! (Please contact me if you know how I can get started on that.)

  3. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
    Honestly, I'm just finding out about this huge BlogHer event and I really don't know what goes on there. (I'm a newbie, please enlighten me!)
    As far as cool stuff goes - I believe we should indulge in some delicious donuts, ice cream, and yummy chocolates. That OK with everyone? ;)

  4. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite. (share the link in YOUR post so we all can see)
    I like my introductory post here:
    Whoohoo! My First Blog!

Thanks for stopping by! Please be my bloggy friend and/or twitter friend! :D
OH - and if you follow me, I'll follow you back! Just leave me a comment so I know! TY!

Crummy Car Dealers - Buyer Beware!

I've been looking around to purchase a new car, and I must say it is one of the most unpleasant experiences to deal with car salespeople. They are like vultures and we buyers are the prey.

Today I visited the Nissan dealership (only to inspect a model; didn't have intention to make a purchase today). The first salesperson was a woman who came up to us as soon as we stepped up to the car lot. She wasn't pushy as we told her we were just looking. But then, the other vultures come around -- she called over another man who pushes us to take a test drive. We refuse. He comes back with another salesman (who said he was the general sales manager) who forces the issue using different pitches:
  • My man here will get a $20 bonus if you just test drive the car. Help him out!
  • I will take $500 (went up to $1000) off any car if you just test drive.
  • Final (ridiculous offer): I'll give you the car for 50% off if you test drive the car!

That last one was the clincher and we fell for the obvious lie. We had to see if he was going to honor his offer.

Blogger Layout Confusion

Okay, so I'm looking around this blogger to change my layout. How the heck do you make a totally custom template?? This may take awhile to revamp, so I'll do some blog posts and pages before the layout finishes. I'll update again about this darn template system when it's finished! :P

Whoohoo! My first blog!

I finally did it - I made a blog! I have so many ideas about where to take this. As the name of blog leads you to believe, there will be hefty discussion about the crummy things in life. BUT - don't let that fool you, these crummy things also allow the good stuff to really shine, so I'll be talking about the really great things in life too. I can't wait to see where this all leads!

I'll be working on the layout and design for this blog first so it's more "me". Feel free to leave me comments here or tweet at me (I am a nice donut, really!).

Until next time!
