I am going to admit right now that this will not be the most organized or focused blog post! August and September are seriously wiping my behind. Between School starting, increased responsibilities at school, planning a wedding, moving houses, and my family moving back to America, how is a girl to find 2 seconds to write a blog post! I started lots of blog posts but didn't have time to really develop them. So... I decided to combine them all into little snippets!
1. Moving/Packing Ideas
I have been packing up and moving things in to Dom and I's first house! We are making progress!
One trick that I had was for transporting hanging clothes. I actually stole this idea from my friend Stephanie. Cut a trash bag so that it is open on both ends. Pull the bag over a section of clothes with the strings on the top near the hangers. Tie the bag ties around the hangers. It makes the clothes so easy to pick up, lay in your car, and plop right on to the hanger in your new closet. I have moved so many times and I have never find a technique better than this one.
Second ideas was for moving my necklaces. They ALWAYS get tangled! I unhooked each one and strung it through a toilet paper roll. It took a bit of time to unhook each one and string it though, but it was definitely better than untangling all of those chains!
Last bit of packing news, I am a cleaning freak. I love sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming. How did this much trash get under my rug and couch?!?! I am pretty sure Macy was using the couch as a burying ground!
2. Change of Last Name:
SO ignore the bad picture, but look what my school secretary did! I needed a new card and she put my future last name on it! It was so weird to see. Now some of my kids are trying to call me Mrs. Simone. I know it will take me awhile to get use to it.
On that note, does anyone have any advice on getting my name changed on everything in my life? I have looked at a few websites that say they can help, but I don't want to pay money for something that doesn't work. Help?
3. #VSsportsbra VoxBox from Influenster
Woohoo another VoxBox! I received the new Victoria Secret Sports Bra and Workout pants from Victoria Secret. I received these complementary through Influenster for review purposes. Here are my honest thoughts.
A: The Bra is fantastic. It curses and fits so wonderfully to my body. I couldn't be happier.
B: The Pants are ALMOST wonderful. I LOVE the feel and the fit of the pants. They are thick enough that I don't feel like my butt is hanging out there but they don't feel heavy. My only complains is the style. My picture didn't show it so much, but the pink comes down right around the contours of my thigh. I feel like it makes my thighs look large and brings attention to them. It is a weird feeling to have the focus on my thighs! Other than that, they would definitely keep me warm outside in the winter and are lovely to workout in.

3. NFL Season Is Here:
I am generally not an NFL fan (Roll Tide!) but Dom and his buddies are. We hosted everyone at the new house for football and food. We had a friendly football pool going (I lost big time), and I made wings, fries, and spinach pizza! We had a blast. Go Jets :)
That is all for now folks!
