Coture Nerd is Giving Away a $200 Nordstrom Gift Card!!!

If you don't already know, I heart Nordstrom! When I moved here to San Diego from Norman, Oklahoma in November of 2007, I told almost anyone who asked that my favorite thing about San Diego was Nordstrom!

I had, of course, heard of Nordstrom before I moved here, but I had never been to one of their stores. As soon as I moved here I learned why so many people love it. I could tell you I love their selection of designer clothes, their marvelous array of high heels, the fact that they carry one of my favorite cosmetics brands, Smashbox, or that their semi-annual sale is to die for! But, the one thing I like most about Norstrom are their amazing employees. Wheather I call for info, chat with an expert online or head into their store, each associate makes me feel like a million bucks. I especially love the men in the shoe department and the women in the cosmetics and perfume sections at our local Fashion Valley Norstrom.

So, I've gone through all of this rambling to let you know that Coture Nerd, one of my all-time favorite websites, is actually giving away a $200 Nordstrom gift card. I almost stopped breathing when I first saw the post! I was that excited. launched in October 2009, but like they say, they've "grown immensly in 2010". I love thier posts on fashion, beauty and all of their awesome giveaways. This particualr giveaway is cetainly no exception!

If you'd like to enter, all you have to do is click here to head to their site and read the instructions to post a comment. They have tons of extra ways to enter, so be sure to scroll down and read all of the information.

Good luck!!! :)


Hi! Sorry I've Been Gone for a Few Days...

Hi all!

Sorry I've been gone for a few days! You won't believe what I've been doing...a sleep study! You know, where you go stay at a hospital and they hook up (what seems like) ten million tiny little electrodes to you and you sleep.

Sound strange? Well it was!

I don't have what most people think of as a sleep "problem". My issue is that I sleep too much. Way too much. In fact, I've been having the hardest time staying awake for normal tasks and it's really starting to cramp my style. When I told the doctor he sent me a sleep specialist who then scheduled me for a sleep study.

I don't have any results yet but will probably know more about what's going on while I sleep sometime next week. I really am looking forward to feeling more awake so I'm ready for the doctors' orders!

If you want to know more about sleep disorders or sleep studies, this is a really good link to the Mayo Clinic's sleep disorders page.

I'm also looking forward to getting back in the swing of blogging and entering contests! I'll be posting some right after I post this.

As always, good luck!!! :)

Momma's Review is Giving Away a DROID Eris Phone!!!

Well, if you haven't heard by now, the DROID is Google's answer to the iPhone...and it seems to be kicking some butt! Not that people don't still love their iPhones, but many that have been really unhappy with AT&T's service and coverage are trying the DROID and Verizon...and liking it.

I've been caught-up in the DROID frenzy myself, and though I haven't purchased one, my husband and I did head over to the Verizon store in our area to check it out. Cool is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of a description.

Eris is one type of the DROID they've put out and isn't the top of the line, but still has most of the features I'm interested in.

The even more exciting news is that Momma's Review is giving one away to her readers to celebrate her second annual Mommas March Mania !!! Just click here to head on over to her post and follow her instructions to leave a comment to enter.

Great Budgeting Article at Better Parenting

One of my favorite blogs, Better Parenting, just posted a new article titled "5 Family Budgeting Tips That Work". I've just been planning a new personal and family budget and it's not easy stuff. I found a great site, Mint, that has been helping enormously, but I also learned a lot from this post.

The two things listed in the article that really hit me were Keep A Spending Diary and Enjoy the Free Things in Life. It's not that I hadn't thought about those things, but when I read about them they really made a lot of sense.

Head on over to Better Parenting to read the article. You'll be glad you did.
