Flirty Aprons

Who says moms can’t look cute and sexy in the kitchen?  Flirty Aprons has an adorable line of kitchen aprons that are fun and functional.  They’ll keep your clothes clean while you are working in the kitchen, whipping up some cookies or making a delicious dinner for your family.  You’ll look fashionable at the same time!  Made from 100% soft cotton fabric and quality construction, these aprons won’t fade or tear.  These women’s aprons are about to change your outlook on cooking and working in the kitchen.  Flirty Aprons- Freedom from domestication. 
I absolutely adore the look of these aprons and I love wearing them even more.  They're so cute!  I feel more like a domestic goddess rather than a slave in the kitchen when I wear them (even when it’s over my pajamas…shhhh!).  You are probably familiar with the trend “Trash the Dress” where women do crazy things with their wedding dresses after the big event is over, like wearing it into a swimming pool.  Well Flirty Aprons is taking that concept and daring you to trash your old apron.  They are offering 20% off a new apron from Flirty Aprons with code BB20 and giving you the chance not only for a full refund on the purchase price but a $100 Visa gift card as well.  Here’s how:
  1. Pick out an adorable new apron at
  2. Don’t forget to use code BB20 to take 20% off
  3. Take a video of  the creative way you destroy your old apron and post it on YouTube (YouTube videos need to have Flirty Aprons in the title)
  4. Email your video links to by September 10th at 11:59 PST
The top 10 most creative entries will receive a full refund of the Flirty Apron Purchase price.  The #1 most creative video will receive a $100 Visa gift card in addition to the apron refund.  Winners will be picked by Flirty Aprons.
Doesn’t that sound ridiculously fun?!  These aprons are so cute you’ll have a hard time picking just one.  Have a friend who likes to bake?  Flirty Aprons would make an awesome gift!  Just make sure you get one for yourself first! :)

Still Kickin'- Kinda

Hello to my 16 readers.  How are you?  I'm sorry i've been out of blogland for a while. It's been a rough summer.  I had divorce mediation to attend. Having to decide who gets what and how to arrange my new life hasn't been easy.  My divorce was finalized mid August.  2 days before my 14th anniversary.  I made it 13 years 363 days-but the last time I remember us both being happy was probably 2007.

Part of me feels like a complete failure.  I tried everything in my power to keep it together,  i really did.  But ultimately it comes down to the fact that it takes two people wanting to work on a relationship to make it work.  For what ever reasons my ex decided to check out.  So be it.  I want you to know I'm not whining or bitching here-I do wish him well, and I hope he finds whatever it is he is looking for in life.  It's just that I miss how he used to be with me.

I have decided that I deserve a happy life too.  I am finding strength in motherhood.  I love my children so much.  They are my most precious accomplishment and my greatest achievement.  I wish that they didn't have to suffer any pain and frustration and hurt.

Do you ever feel like you have everything and nothing to say at the same time?  Sorry for my ramblings...

All I can tell you is it's been an awful August.  I know of 3 deaths,  my aunt got in a bicycling accident and broke her leg so bad she required an operation, a very good friends' 3 year old girl fell out of a 2 story window and required surgery, another good friend was hit by another car on the the freeway and crashed into the wall totaling her car and getting whiplash.  My divorce was finalized and a friends is just beginning.  Another friends newborn baby was diagnosed with heart problems.  It has been c ra zy.  Earthquakes on the East Coast and now a hurricane. I'm just bracing myself for the next thing.  When did the world get so topsy turvey?

Well, come what may, we need to carry on.  I wish you all well and may your news be good!
