Just doing my job.....

A little thing I do on this blog is also give my honest opinion about company's and review their product and their business.
So here I am, coming to you to tell you about a nasty little company called chubbiestech that I found on ebay which I had the displeasure of doing business with.
I needed a new phone but my phone company wouldn't let me upgrade my phone without them taking away my unlimited data. So I searched ebay for a cheap iphone because I didn't have $500 to throw away on buying a brand new phone with no contract.
I came across chubbietech and they advertized a used iphone, 100% fully functioning with little cosmetic damage( which I could live with) and was tested by their "tech team" for around $100!
I order it and it comes a few days later, open it up, all seems fine until I turn the thing on and it's not "fully functioning". The proximity sensor is broken. If you don't know what that is, it's when you go to call someone and you put the phone up to your face, the screen turns black so you don't push any buttons. Well when I put it up to my face, I was constantly hanging up with everyone because the screen would never go black.
Instead of getting nasty and writing a bad review and filing a claim with ebay, I sent them an email about the situation and they told me that if I sent the phone back and paid for shipping out of my own packet, they would send me a new phone.
I was pretty pissed off about paying for shipping, I mean it's not like I didn't like the phone, they just sold it under false advertizing and if it worked like they said it would, I wouldn't have to send it back.
I swallow that anger and pay for shipping.
About a week later I get the new phone.
I get excited thinking that FINALLY, a working phone.
The same thing is wrong with this phone.
It's like they just send me the same phone back and hoped that I wouldn't notice.
Again, I sent them another message and they asked if I would like a refund or TO PAY FOR SHIPPING YET AGAIN AND HAVE THEM SEND ME ANOTHER BROKEN PHONE!
No thank you.

So, here I am, warning you of a company who screwed me over, but also made fraudulent claims.
I'm in no way telling you to never buy from them, you're an adult and can make your own choices, I'm just giving my honest opinion of my experiences.

Have a nice day and please, don't screw this mama over.

Sun Fun!

 I hate the sand.
But the kids don't hate sand.
So we pretty much end up playing in sand.
or how Emily puts, " MY SAND!".

 (yay for breaking out last years swim suits because mom forgot to wash the new ones from last weekend. Slacker)
We had a beautiful day.
Not one tear was shed today, not even my own
and the best part about living in Florida is we will be back here tomorrow!
(With clean swim suits that actually fit.)

'Tis the season...

With the first day of spring right around the corner, we celebrated that cold weather leaving just a little early.

Taking two kids anywhere is hard, let alone the big wide open spaces of the beach.
Whenever we are at places like this, I think to myself that it would be nice to have gated off sections for toddlers to keep them away from traffic, bikes, people walking who don't look down for the little people and just walk over them and then just fill in with toys.
But I'm sure I'm the only person who thinks that....
I think that's what people call baby prison.

even MORE life changes.

Long story short, we need to move again.
We are coming up to our one year in this place and it's becoming very apparent that it's just too small for us.
The yard is terrible, the kids can't even play in it. The living room is more of a play room now and the kitchen is impossible and too small to deal with without having heart palpitations.

I feel suffocated right now.
I'm beyond stressed, I can never get anything done without having to save a toddler from the other.
I've run out of things to bribe them with so I guess it's time to hide and hope they don't find me.
Before the kids were born, everyone always told me that "it gets easier!" ... but I just see it getting more complicated.
I can't sit on the toilet without a toddler standing in front of me asking me what I'm doing or just forget about using the oven because there is always a kid right there wanting to stick their head in. "Doing the dishes? Let me just throw all my toys in there!" and God forbid you give them the wrong color sippy.
I love my children, you all know that, I wouldn't change my life for anything.
I might slap a price tag on them at a garage sale from time to time, but we all know we are stuck with each other.
A part of me just feels like if we move into a better house with more room and a yard that they can actually run around in, things will get better. I'm so pessimistic about moving tho, I feel like it's not going to happen, like I'm setting my hopes to high and my brain is there to kinda pull me down a bit.

I guess I just need something to give, some kind of good to come our way.

 They deserve the best and I'm not going to stop til I reach that.

Wedding part two.

Can I just take a second to explain to you that I got photo bombed at my wedding and how funny I think it is. I honestly didn't even see her there during the whole wedding and looking at these pictures make me realize that I was focused on him and what really mattered and not on anything else and that's a good feeling to have when you're looking at your wedding photos.

But really, I need to have this photo blown up and framed because I just can't stop laughing!

I'm sitting here thinking that I guess life can go back to normal, I'm not running around hunting people down to line up and kill for not doing their job concerning the wedding, and I honestly thought the day would never come. I kept thinking that the days counting down to the wedding would last forever.

and now.... it's come and gone and over with.
I did let Danny know tho that we have been married for over a week and I haven't killed him yet so I guess that means we are going to last.

All night, I've been trying  to write out our Thank You cards and that seems almost impossible with two toddlers. So in advance, if you receive one of our cards, please ignore the scribbles and if it doesn't make sense, that's because I couldn't think clearly.

Thank you everyone who was a part of our day and made it so special for us.
We are so blessed!
