Winter Wonderland In North Texas

Snow on the trees in the backyard.
So we got snow again today.  The winter storm advisory took effect at 6:00 A.M. this morning until 6:00 P.M. tomorrow, Saturday night.  We had about 2 inches of snow here in our area.  Dallas and some parts of Northeast Texas had snow up to 4 inches deep. The temperature was between 26 to 29 degrees Fahrenheit all day.

We didn't have plans to go out this morning but my darling daughter asked for Chicken and Cheese Wraps for breakfast.  I don't have them in the refrigerator so we drove to the gas station close by to buy the food that she's wanting.

A dove up high in the tree.
DD checking how deep the snow is.
Since it's below freezing temperature, I decided to buy a stack of firewood. It sells $25 at the gas station.  Pretty high priced.  I built a fire at the fireplace as soon as we got home because we were shivering cold. :)  My husband came home from work at about 1:30 in the afternoon.

The ground is all white except the roads.

Winter Storm Brought Ice And Sleet

It's ice, not snow. :)
Today was super cold.  It's below freezing temperature all day.  Due to the winter storm we are getting these ice and sleet here in Texas today and tomorrow.  Is this the last freeze prior to Spring?  I'm not sure.

Anyway, my dear husband didn't have to work today so it's a 3-day weekend for him. :) We went outside to let DD play a little while.  My honey's truck is covered with ice and there are icicles on the window panes.  He said there's a forecast of possible snow in the morning.  We'll see.

Valentine's Day Calvin Klein VoxBox #REVEALMORE #Review

REVEAL Calvin Klein Men Fragrance VoxBox from Influenster
These items came in the mail just in time for Valentine's Day.  I was given the opportunity by Influenster to try the new REVEAL Calvin Klein Men fragrance.  Included in the Voxbox is a mini card holder which is very ideal for business cards.

Good timing for Valentine's Day, I was thinking of giving my husband a new fragrance.  I sprayed a little of the sample on my wrist.  It has a sensual and striking smell to it that I think my husband will like.  It's like when you smell this fragrance on a man, the get-to-know action is quite possible. 

Calvin Klein makes sensational fragrance products and the Reveal scent defies masculinity but not overpowering.

Interested to know more about this new fragrance and other Calvin Klein products?  Follow their pages on Facebook here ---> Calvin Klein FB Page . And on Twitter too here ---> @CalvinKlein.

Seems like hubby is interested to use the REVEAL Calvin Klein Men fragrance.

*I received these items free from Influenster for testing and review purposes.

Weekend Snapshots: New Vacuum Cleaner Hoover Windtunnel

Yay! Our new vacuum cleaner has arrived.  I bought a Hoover Windtunnel Bagless Vacuum Cleaner to replace our 10-year-old Bissell one.  It has served us good long years but it was time to upgrade.

I was very excited about this new vacuum cleaner.  Even my darling daughter kept asking me when will it arrive so she can help me vacuum the carpets.  Hahaha!  Sweet girl.  Anyway, I bought this Hoover Windtunnel at  I was scouting for good deals and great reviews about vacuum cleaners and this one has 4.5 rating at Walmart online and featured as the Best Seller.  From $149 price, it rolled back to $99.  I used my birthday cash to buy it.

Automatic Cord Rewind. I love!

I hope this vacuum will last more than 10 years.

Sensitive Gums And Teeth

Honestly, I don't like going to the dentist.  It's not that I hate it but I just don't have enough courage to deal with the cleaning of my teeth and stuff.  My teeth and gums are sensitive.  It makes me very nervous.  

There was a time when the dental hygienist took my blood pressure and it was very high.  I was like, man!  So I had to relax and think of something nice so the stress will go away.  After a little while she tried it checking my BP again and it went down a little bit.  Good thing it was just a cleaning appointment.

I am so chicken when it comes to dental appointments.  Arg.  How about you?

Waterproof Eyeliner #FrostyVoxBox

Well, I received very nice gifts last year.  The Frosty VoxBox from Influenster was one of them. Included in the box was a Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in black.  I don't wear makeup so often so sometimes it takes a long time for me to finish painting my face. Hahaha.

Wearing Rimmel waterproof eyeliner and warm shades of eye shadow.

Since the Rimmel eyeliner is waterproof, it stays on your eyes the whole day.  An effective make up remover for waterproof make ups is needed to wipe the eyeliner off.

Air Stepper Climber For Fitness And Losing Weight

Air stepper climber for my dear husband.
It was a late Christmas present but I got this Air Climber for $25 at local online garage sale.  I was looking for something like this exercise equipment for my dear husband because he needs to lose weight.  This costs $80 at Target.  It is made of hard plastic with maximum weight capacity of 300 lbs.  It's literally brand new because there is no sign of use.  The seller said it hasn't been used and been in their garage collecting dust.

My DH liked it and he's using it every morning.  He is planning to buy a couple of weights (barbels).  Great idea.
