There's a ton of discussion about unemployment and underemployment.  But, what is the real difference? 

You take the good, you take the bad.  You take them both, and then you have the facts of life.  I loved The Facts of Life as a kid, and connected with Natalie.  But that’s another post for another time.  Sometimes life hands you lemons and you have to figure out what to do. 

About a year ago, my hours at work were cut.  They were cut from 50+ hours to a hard and tight 25 hours a week.  Why?  I’m not really sure, but I have my ideas, all that are based on spitefulness and misplaced revenge by a co-worker.

When I was in like 4th grade, the movie Cocktail came out.  And if you know anything about that movie, you know that the song Kokomo was popular too.  SUPER popular.  It was about then that I first became semi-aware of Aruba. 

Now that I’m, ummmm…older, I am much more familiar with the island nation of Aruba, and the amenities that they offer.  I was asked what I’d like to do if I went to Aruba, and why I’d want to go.   First, why do I want to go to Aruba?  Uhhh…really?  I want to go because it’s ARUBA!  As for what I would want to do?  Well, I’m the type of person that likes to jam in a little of everything when I go somewhere. 

Aruba is known for its ahhh-mazing beaches with stunning white sands and gorgeous turquoise waters.  I like to swim in the ocean, and love love love to snorkel.  So I think I’d totally take advantage of that.

I like to change my perfume up with the seasons.  While I may like a heavy, musky scent or a rich, spicy scent for winter, I generally want something a lot lighter and more “fun” for summer.  Luckily, there are lots of perfumes that are the perfect scents for summer.  Here are a few of my choices for this year.

I’ve been lucky enough to have travelled extensively in my life.  However, one of the places that I haven’t spent much time is Florida.  I mean, sure.  I’ve spent a weekend or two in Miami, enjoying the unique culture and the amazing Art Deco architecture.  Oh, and the nightlife.  You definitely can’t forget the nightlife of South Beach. 

When I was in High School, we took a family trip to Orlando.  One guess why, right?  Of course it was for a trip to Disneyworld and a trip to the other Disney family of amusement parks.  This was about a year or so before they opened the Wild Kingdom Animal Park, so we missed out on visiting that.  I’d love to go back for a trip to see it.

I’ve also been to Tampa a couple times for quick business trips.  There wasn’t much to remember from those jaunts, but I didn’t get out much either. 

Being a major history buff, I would love to spend some time in St Augustine.  Everything I’ve heard about the town is that it’s a great romantic escape.  It’s the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the 48 states.  I think that would make a fantastic 3 or 4 day weekend. 

I’ve also kind of always wanted to go on one of those everglades tours in the airboats.  I don’t know if they still do those, but I think it would be kind of fun.  Don’t you?  I mean as long as we didn’t get eaten by alligators or have the boat flip over or anything.

It seems like it was just Winter; here it is the end of May, but we had snow a couple of weeks ago!  Somehow, we are now in full blazing hot and humid Summer weather.  And Summer officially doesn’t begin for another four weeks.

Summer means we spend more time outdoors, and less time inside doing the mundane jobs around the house.  By starting your summer organizing now, you can have extra time to do the outdoorsy stuff – gardening, biking, swimming or taking a short vacation.  Add in a few useful home accessories, and the task is even easier.

It’s shorts, sandals, and *gasp* bathing suit weather again.  How did that happen?  It seems like it was just a couple weeks ago that it was snowing.  Oh, that’s right,  It WAS snowing a couple weeks ago with an early May winter storm.

Anyway, now that it’s finally warmed up, you {me?  Okay, WE!} need to get your {our} skin into show-off shape.  One of the products that I like is the Tree Hut line.  They seem to have a complete line from body washes to sugar scrubs to rich hand and foot creams.

This Baby Shower Invitations post was brought to you by Tiny Prints.  All opinions are my own.

 

For a while, it seemed that everyone I knew was pregnant or had a baby that was just a couple months old.  Every weekend, I had another baby shower to attend.  While some of these ladies had cute baby shower invitations, many did not.  Tiny Prints has some super adorable baby shower invites.

The All Things Glitter invites are super cute.  Sorta handmade-scrapbooky looking, but without all the work and mess.  They have ones for Boys and for Girls.
