Channing Tatum, Vampire Love, The Biebs, and a Winner...

It's here! It's here!!!  PEOPLE Magazine's Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue is here!!!

Walgreen's has their shelves stocked with some yummy goodness, and I aint talkin' recipes, ladies ;)

Well, hellooooo Channing...or shall I say Sexiest Man Alive 2012?  

I mean, he has a title now, right?  Well, he should, because hmmm...

Pretty hottttt!  Is he looking at me with those big puppy dog eyes?  Oh, he sure is pretty...I mean boys can be pretty, right?

My personal choice would have been Ian Somerhalder from Vampire Diaries, because he is the ultimate bad boy vampire with the most dreamy eyes I've ever seen, but I think Channing Tatum would be up there in my top 3.

So, besides PEOPLE Magazine hosting the Sexiest Man Alive issue, I love getting my celebrity fix.  I love this feature called, Growing Up Twilight...yes, I know...enough with the vampires already, but I love them.  I love getting to take a look at the then and now's, and seeing how people have changed over the years.

And wow...celebrity news that has my daughter in fits...fits of a good nature.  Justin Bieber is single!!!

Not sure why my 9 year old daughter thinks this is good news for her???  She pulled her Biebs posters out of her closet and proceeded to hang them back up...I guess she'll be back to writing Kate Bieber on all of her notebooks again ;)

Let's not forget...the winner of the $20 Walgreen's gift card is...Mary Anne! 


Don't forget to grab this week's issue of PEOPLE Magazine!

My Carpet Nightmare...

This post is sponsored by Mohawk.  This is my story, and a great way to turn a nightmare into a happy ending!

Do you have a carpet nightmare story?  I sure do...

I have kids.  Two of them to be exact.  Somehow on the weekends and during school breaks, they multiply.  Our home seems to be the main hub for all children ages nine through fifteen.  Don't get me wrong, I love that they want to be here, but they have left my carpet looking way less than stellar.  In fact, our carpet is horrific.  We jumped on the berber carpet train years ago, because we were told that it didn't stain as easily, was easy to clean, and extremely durable.  We could not have been more wrong.  There was nothing stain resistant about the carpet that we bought...nothing.
We lived in carpet jail.  We had pieces of furniture and rugs strategically placed over the really bad stains, and we had just learned to live with the others.

As a mother and self professed neat freak, living in this condition was unbearable.  
Just sitting in my living room made me anxious and angry.  That nasty carpet had to go.  
Once I finally convinced Matt that the time had come to get new carpeting, the hunt for a more stain resistant carpet was on.  It couldn't just be stain resistant though, it had to be pretty and soft too. 

See, I am a spiller, and so are the kids.  So, we definitely need something that resists liquid.

We have a monster dog...I so wish he still looked like this...

We also have two sweet animals.  One is a monster dog with huge paws.  He loves being outside, and when he comes in, his paws are usually filthy.  I try to wipe them off, but he usually gets past me so quickly that I am more likely going to be cleaning floors instead of paws...crazy dog!

And...I want my friends to bring their sweet babies over without being afraid to put them down on my floor!  

Mohawk makes an incredible carpet line called Luxuriously Soft SmartStrand® Silk™ with DuPont™ Sorona®.   Mohawk’s SmartStrand Silk with DuPont Sorona carpet features a different kind of fiber—it’s called triexta. Triexta is the only carpet fiber that has stain and soil resistance engineered into the fiber itself. Because this protection is natural to the fiber, no harsh chemical treatments are applied during manufacturing. Stain and soil protection lasts the life of the carpet, meaning the carpet looks newer for longer. This creates happy customers.

I want to make absolute sure that what I am buying has been tested, by families.  Families with dogs and kids.   The person below has a dog that got into M&M's and that stain came surely my dog's muddy paws wouldn't ruin this carpet!

Mohawk wants to send you a FREE BOX OF SAMPLES of their carpet, so you can see for yourself!

Why wouldn't's free, and you have the opportunity to test it out yourself!  Then, if you have a little girl like me, you can let her have them to use in her Barbie house ;)

I would love to hear your worst carpet nightmares...I know we all have at least one!

Hottie Announcement and A Giveaway!

Okay, know what time of year it is right?  Yes, I know, Christmas is coming...but, what comes before Christmas?  I'm not talking turkey, I'm talking about PEOPLE Magazine's Annual Sexiest Man Alive Issue...oh yeah...that's what I'm talking about!

I have been a long time reader of People Magazine.  It's my go to magazine for fashion, current events, and of course, celebrity gossip.  There are so many magazines out there with false stories about celebrities, but I know that when I read People, I am getting the facts, and usually straight from the celebrities.  Last week's issue is one of my favorite's so far...a sneak peek at Justin Timberlake's wedding.  I'm not going to pretend that I'm not devastated that he is no longer single, but at least he married a nice girl named Jessica...close enough, I guess ;)  I can't tell you how many times I wrote my own name as Jessica Timberlake when I was younger...before I got married.

So, onto bigger, more important things...

People's Annual Sexiest Man Alive Issue hits stores on November 15th...I am going to be at Walgreen's first thing in the morning to grab mine up!  I am super excited, and have my own idea about who I think is going to win...what about you...who would you pick if you got to vote???  Wanna see some hotties from year's past?


I want to give you a chance to buy your own People Magazine or whatever else you like...

Leave a comment telling me who you think would win or who you would pick to win if it were your choice, and you will be entered to win a $20 gift card for Walgreen's!  Just make sure to leave your email address so I may contact you.  Then you can get your own magazine, and maybe a few snacks to go along with it!

I'll announce the winner here on Monday, November 19th!

(not Timberlake ;)
