I'm a sucker for advertising.

I can definitely safely say that I am completely a sucker for advertising.  Seriously, make something look interesting, slap a clever logo on it with great packaging...I'll probably buy it or want to buy it.  That is exactly what happened today at Bed, Bath and Beyond.  I went there for a replacement pillow (for that story see the "death of a pillow" story.) and also wanted a new electronic tart warmer, jewelry organizer, desktop mirror, plastic stand up drawers and some other stuff for my room's organization.  Back to my story -- I am drawn to a clearance section like a moth to a flame.  That is exactly where I ended up!  I followed what seemed to be a big glowing red and yellow "Clearance" sign. (Ok, it wasn't really glowing.)  Four aisles full...I was in heaven!  I slowly walked up and down the clearance aisles throwing a few interesting things in my cart (a root beer making kit, thought it would be interesting for my kids.  A discount tart warmer, some candles and tarts, salt and pepper shakers, etc...)  until I came upon this pink packaging that just drew me in.  Curl-Ease: The Towel For Girls with Curls it was called.  I started reading the packaging and read that it was supposed to de-frizz your hair and keep it's natural curl shape.  That's exactly what I need since my curly hair turns into an afro unless I flat iron it.  The packaging was interesting, the tag line was catchy and the product description really screamed: LEGIT!! LOL  So I decided to pay the $14.99 and see if it would be.  Actually, I have yet to try it so I can't give you a proper review, but I wanted to say that I will try it tonight and update everyone immediately. lol :) You can visit it's official site if you're interested and like clever advertising too. :D



-  What is your least favorite part of the morning? When I have to wake up.  :)  lol  I'm serious.  Once I actually get up I'm fine, but when I have to get up I'm a complete and total bitch. (Sometimes)

-  Is there generally any day of the week that you usually sleep later than normal? If so, which day, and how often actually do you get to sleep in late?  Any day that I'm not busy I get to sleep in.  My kids both sleep pretty late...to 12-1pm.  I'm lucky in that aspect!  I usually sleep in until 10 and have 2 hours to get things done before they wake up. It works out pretty well!

-  When the alarm clock first goes off, do you immediately get up, or do you take advantage of the snooze button?  I really put the snooze button to use.  Maybe about 5 times until I wake up. LOL That's why I always set the alarm for an hour-half hour before I actually have to be up. 

-  Do you sleep with the television on or off?  Off, usually.  Unless I fall asleep when I'm watching something.


-  What's the part of your morning you least look forward to everyday?  I don't look forward to anything about mornings!
