Fresh, Beautiful Flowers
from The Bouqs

I hate sending flowers to people. Unless you can go into the store and watch them pick the flowers, you never know what your recipient is going to get. Will they send the colors you asked for? Will the arrangement arrive fresh? This is where The Bouqs Company comes in.

I was recently given the opportunity to receive and review a bouquet of flowers from The Bouqs. I can honestly say I will never use another online florist again. Here are four simple reasons why.

• Shipping is always free
• All standard bouquets are $40
• Cut on the day you order & sent straight from the farm
• Grown on the side of an active volcano near the equator (for real)

I chose the Red, White and Bouq! arrangement since the Fourth of July is right around the corner. These red, white and blue roses arrived in perfect condition. As you can see from the photos, the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. And guess what? I snapped these pics seven days after the flowers arrived. SEVEN DAYS! For me, there is no bigger selling point. Fresh flowers really do last longer.

The Bouqs offers a large variety of flowers, but the selection doesn't leave you feeling overwhelmed. They also don't have annoying up-sells like candy and teddy bears. You want flowers. You get flowers.

They have an amazing concierge service which makes sending flowers easier than ever. The Bouqs will remind you when it's time to send flowers for birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates. They'll send flowers whenever and wherever you need including random just because dates.

I'm extremely pleased with The Bouqs Company. The flowers and service are great. It's also extremely easy to order from their website. I can't wait to order from them again and again. If you'd like to order fresh, beautiful flowers from The Bouqs, you'll receive $10 off your first order.

That Time I Was On Tosh.0

If you follow along on Twitter or Instagram, you probably already know about this. For the rest of you, one of my tweets was featured on an episode of Tosh.0. Comedian Daniel Tosh asked for his fans to tweet out advice to the graduating glass of 2014. I tweeted him one night and promptly forgot about it until someone told me via Instagram they'd seen my mug on tv. #TwitFamous

Since I had recently gone through a period of unemployment, I gave out the following advice.

LinkedIn didn't help me get a job. It did make my phone blow up with unnecessary notifications though. I got a lot of new followers after the show aired on Comedy Central. Most, if not all of them, are Kentucky Wildcats fans. So glad I had recently changed my profile pic. GO BIG BLUE!

This weekend, we are off to yet another baseball tournament. This should be our last for the never-ending spring season. And I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, I'll be back to blogging with some regularity next week.

I Miss Blogging

Most days, I'm either too busy or too tired to blog. There's my new job. There's soccer and baseball games. Soon, there will be football and cheer. My husband recently tore his ACL during a fire. Surgery is scheduled for next Monday. The crazy days and nights are about to get even crazier. So, I may not be around as often as I'd like. But I'll do my best because I miss blogging, and I miss all of you.

For daily updates, I suggest following along on Twitter and Instagram. // @mist9oh1

Back in the Saddle Again

To make a long story short, I got a new job with my old company. After fifteen long months and two jobs that didn't pan out, I guess you could say I'm back where I started. And I'm totally ok with that, because at the end of the day, I'm happy again.
