Have you tried?

Thanks to Suzanne for posting this again so I have the opportunity to participate. Last time I couldn't think of anything to add to my own list, and, I didn't have the time to think about it. And over the last several months I've come up with a few.

Have You Tried...?

...creating a photobook with Shutterfly.com? I received a free photobook offer from shutterfly a few weeks ago, just had to pay shipping. So, I spent extremely valuable time putting one together. It maybe took me 45 minutes, but I doubt it was that long. It arrived yesterday and we LOVE it. I made it for my son's first birthday pictures...now that his 2nd birthday is this week and I still haven't scrapped the last one. Needless to say we LOVED it and plan on doing this for each of his birthdays.

...Peach Iced Tea from Sonic? I get it cut-in-half (1/2 sweet, 1/2 unsweet), extra ice. It's just perfect and although I hadn't had it everyday this summer, but several days for sure. Its a yummy refreshing treat.

along those lines...

...Chick-fil-A's icedream cone? MMMMMM....

and again...

...White Chocolate Molten Lave Cake from Chilis? OMG...J and I have talked about going there just for that treat....although each time we want it we go for dinner too. Even though they've gotten rid of my favorite meal...the Grilled Carribean Salad, we still go back for that treat....heavenly.

...the Tempurpedic bed? WOW...I'll get to the whole story later, but ours arrived on Tuesday and it is wonderful. Then again...there's not much worse than 15-20 year old twin mattresses pushed together...

...watching Intervention? It's one of my favorite shows. I grew up going to AA meetings weekly and I see tremendous value in listening to stories of those who face addiction. I've learned two things...1) I don't ever want to drink or "experiment" with drugs (and I've never done either), and 2) There is hope for those who are lost in an addiction.

...Hershey's Cookies & Creme kisses? Good snack in the middle of the day.

...Garnier Fructis sleek n shine anti-frizz serum? If you've got curly hair or just frizz, this product is great. I now use it daily when blow drying and it does a wonderful job managing the frizz without leaving my hair weighed down or greasy.

...Venus Breeze razors? I've used the venus divine for years and bought the breeze on accident. It fits into the divine razor but I was pleasantly surprised when I used it. It includes "gel bars" that replace the need for shave gel. It works very well and surprisingly you really don't need the shave gel. In fact, I've found that it works better than shave gel. But, to me, the best part is that unlike other razors I've seen like that, this one can be used even after the first couple times the gel bars are good...once they start to wear out you can continue to use the razor if you are cheap like me and get every ounce of use out of a razor.

...bloggers new feature to help you keep track of the blogs you regularly read? On the Dashboard you can add your favorite blogs and it will summarize daily changes for you so that you can keep track of them quickly rather than clicking on all the blogs you like hoping for new posts.

Hey! We watch Intervention, too! It is pretty interesting.

I haven't tried that new feature on blogger because I didn't know what it was. I think I might have to try it now. Thanks!

Have I tried the new tempurpedic bed? YES! And amazing doesn't even begin to describe the kind of sleep I get these days...I also wanted to give a shout-out to ultimatebackstore.com for helping me find the perfect one :) they've got lots of other cool accessories too along with kick butt customer service.
