Boogie Wipes to the rescue and GIVE AWAY!

This last weekend I went on a vacation without the kids. My Husband took me down to Seattle for the weekend for a late birthday gift. When I was packing our over night bag I made sure to toss in a package of boogie wipes. Even without the kids I thought it would be nice to toss in and I would find some use for it out there.

We got to the outlet store and started shopping. We picked up a quick bite to eat and got some sauce on my hands. I couldn't get it all off with the tissue that they gave us. So I pulled out the boogie wipes and gave my hands a good wipe and they were nice and clean. We then went on our way shopping.

Later that day we ended up stopping at the crab pot. OMG I have heard so many good things about it. It was even on Man VS Food. I looked at there website before we left and I was hungry just looking at it. We ended up there and had a almost hour long wait to get in. But the food was worth it. For some reason only my husband got the wipe for his hands, or maybe he took mine. So once again i pulled out a boogie wipe. I also wiped my face with it to make sure I wasn't sticky there for when my husband would lean in and give me a kiss!

We ended up going to our hotel room, and got in to a really nice suite. They upgraded us to a room with a Japanese soaking tub. It was fantastic. We had so much fun and slept fantastic on the king size bed. Though for some reason I ended up at the edge like at home. Looked like the husband was hogging the bet yet again!

Well that night I didn't take off my makeup and when I woke up I looked like a mess! So boogie wipes to the rescue again! I took out a wipe and gave my face a nice wash. I break out so bad when I use different soaps on my face. I cant even use some cleansers on my face. So after I was done with my boogie wipes my face was clean and fresh. After breakfast we went back to the hotel to get ready for the day and I was able to use boogie wipes again. This time for my nose!

We spent the rest of the day around town, we were running around and looking at all sorts of things. I was starting to feel kinds sweaty so I used a boogie wipe to freshen up. Wiping down the back of my neck and chest. It was great and I felt refreshed.

I love how I can use boogie wipes for things other then noses and boogies. They are fantastic for messy faces and hands, getting rid of sticky food that your kids have eaten, washing your face, a quick refresh, and they are lightly scented and wont dry you out like wipes for bums! Plus when I get a cold I personally like to use them myself.

Now here is where it gets fun!

We are doing our first ever GIVE AWAY!!!!!

Last night before i went to bed, like i do every night. I checked my twitter. I saw a few tweets and responded. Then i saw something about Japan. Then i saw the #Japan tag. Then i saw #PrayForJapan. so i started to view them. Then #Japan became a trending topic. I found out that there was a massive earth quake in Japan last night. I couldn't go to sleep with everything i was seeing. The pictures of the devastation was horrible.
I was very worried for people who had friends and family out that way.

Then i saw the tsunami coming through Japan. Then the whirl pools. It was quite sad to watch. I even woke my husband up to watch video of it on my iPhone.

I also found out that since we are on the west coast there is a chance of a tsunami out our way, That was a shocker. It also worried me as my husband works at an airport that is right on the water. The only thing between him and the pacific ocean is a dyke. I found out that it wouldn't hit us as we were protected by the Vancouver Island. But then what about the people on Vancouver Island? How would they fair? The watch for it was even going up the coast of Canada where I have an aunt and uncle.

Finally around 1am ish i went to bed. Not before declaring that March 11 have no #FF but be #PrayForJapan instead. It was RT by a few of my friends list.

Today I have prayed for Japan a few times. I'm thinking about them, and hugging my kids and family tighter as i pray.

There are a few things you can do for the people of Japan. You can donate to your local Red Cross. Even those extra pennies in your wallet, or your change jar, or even instead of getting your morning Starbucks (don't tell me that you don't get one!) or timmies you could donate to the Red cross. Right now they can help better then any other agency can.

this is where you can do a one time or monthly donation to the red cross in Canada.
this is the link for the American Red cross and you can even choose where you funds go.

If you want to donate to Red Cross quake relief, you can do so through your cell phone. Text redcross to 90999 to make a $10 donation. It will be on your next cell bill, for USA only.

if you are on twitter please think about posting a twibbon for Japan.

Please hug your family and call your parents and siblings tonight. Let them know that you love them. Because you never know when something like this is going to happen your part of town.
