The Best of the Rest

Can Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks overcome the Heat?

Well, well, well….what do we have here? A finals filled with historic storylines. The Miami Heat & Dallas Mavericks will tip-off on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the 2011 NBA Finals. Will Dirk be able to match up with LeBron and D-Wade in this rematch from 2006? Miami won that series in 6 and my personal prediction is that the Miami Heat will take this one with LeBron James as Finals MVP. I really hope that my personal prediction is incorrect! As much as I would like Dallas to win, I just don’t think they have the firepower to compete with the Big 3. Notice…I said Big 3. Chris Bosh has been an instrumental part of the playoff run for Miami. He absolutely destroyed Chicago, averaging over 24 ppg for the series.  

The Big 3 (Bosh, James, Wade) are 4 wins away from their goal...is this the year?

All season long, I have watched this team go through successful stretches and media scrutiny. With the bullseye on their back, they ran past Philly in 5,crushed Boston in 5, and finish Chicago in 5 as well. With 4 wins standing between LBJ and his first ring, I’m sure he will aim to finish strong. Dallas, on the other hand, has it’s share of doubters. From the start of the postseason, Portland was predicted to knock off the 2nd seed Mavericks. Despite blowing a 23 point lead against the Blazers in-game 4 of that series, Dallas rallied to overcome their nemesis in 6 games. That’s when the magic started for them: Dallas swept the defending back to back champion LA Lakers and ran past the Thunder in 5 games. If the Mavs can continue to shoot red-hot on the perimeter, they have a shot at the series. Guys, tell me what your prediction is and who will be MVP? I will give periodic updates as the series progresses along with a special surprise to the person who predicts the series winner , length of games and MVP.

Peace,

JT

Have You Seen Me?

I’m sure all of you have that great pair of shoes that are a constant staple in your closet? They go with almost every piece of clothing and accessory that you own. Well, I do too. And mine are a pair of Nine West black flats. I’m not talking ballet flats either. I mean sturdy, reliable, professional, plain Jane flats! 

Similar to My Black Flats... Have you Seen Me? Reward Offered!

Well, for anyone that knows me, I meticulously clean my house before going out-of-town. And this past weekend, Johnny and I went to Atlanta. So Wednesday and Thursday, I exhausted myself cleaning my house. In the process, I believe the cleaning fairies misplaced my favorite work shoes.

This morning, I woke up, showered, got dressed, packed my lunch, fed and walked Teddy, and loaded the car. When I walked into the closet, I immediately attempted to slip my feet into those shoes. See, I keep them on the floor of the closet, right by the door for easy access. Well… to my surprise, the shoes weren’t there!!! I looked in almost every shoe box, under the bed, behind the laundry basket, in the guest rooms, under the sofa, in the garage, in the hall closets, heck I even looked OUTSIDE!!!! To no avail, I couldn’t find my beloved shoes. So today, I was forced to wear a pair of Guess heels. Whereas, I love my heels and 4” or more is always better, I just wanted to be comfortable today and I feel I’ve been robbed. 😦

Any who, when I leave work today, I plan on turning my house UPSIDE DOWN to find these shoes. Until I find them, I’m faced with the option of going without or purchasing more… DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS.

LOST SHOE UPDATE!!!!!

So I got home today and turned every shoe box inside out and every closet upside down. And it HIT me! I know EXACTLY where my shoes are!!! Last week, I found a pair a shoes in my closet that I haven’t worn in ages. When I tried them on, I remembered why… The heel on one of them is broken. So I threw them away and put the box to the side to place my favorite flats in… (Yeah the missing flats). Well as I mentioned above, I went on a cleaning frenzy before my trip to Atlanta and in my haste, I threw the newly vacant box AND my flats away!!! 😦 Needless to say I’m very upset that the shoes are missing. It took forever to find them and now, I’m forced to find more.

Our First Giveaway!

Okay guys (well ladies), I’ve secured our first giveaway. Let me give you a little background on how I secured the item, then I’ll clue you in as to what it is… KEEP READING!

Mary Kay Lipstick

 A good friend of mine, Antigone, will be debuting herself as a Mary Kay consultant this Sunday, May 22, 2011 at 5:00 PM CST at the following address: 244 West Valley Ave, Homewood, AL 35209. She will discuss the benefits of Mary Kay and also demo many of their wonderful products. The event is free, open to the public, and reserved for patrons 18 years old+. Refreshments will be served. (FOOD!!!)

I conducted a short interview with Antigone about her newest venture and see what she had to say below:

Janel: What prompted you to begin Mary Kay consulting?

Antigone: The idea to establish my own substantial self employment has been a dream of mine for a while now. The opportunity for Mary Kay was shared with me and I jumped at the opportunity. In as little as 4 total hours a week one can earn over $600. It just depends on the effort you put into your business. My short term goal is to pay my tuition for school this Fall in CASH.

Janel: What are some of your favorite Mary Kay products?

Antigone: My absolute favorite MARY KAY products stem from our Satin Hands pampering set and our Satin Lips pampering set.  Available in peach or fragrance free ONE use of either products gives you soft touchable hands or soft kissable lips! I’ve kept both products at home for almost 3 years now. If you haven’t tried either product yet, I definitely recommend doing so as soon as possible. You will not regret it. The Satin Hands pampering set is available for $34.00 + tax and the Satin Hands pampering set is available for $18.00 which includes the mask and balm.

Janel: How can someone schedule a consultation with you or purchase products from you?

Antigone: I can be reached personally by email AVEngland@yahoo.com or FACEBOOK [Antigone can also be reached on Twitter @TiggieTweets]. However, one can find a beauty consultant in their area by simply logging on to MaryKay.com and search for a consultant. You can search by name or by zip code. We all work flexible hours and can meet with you as soon as your schedule allows.

Janel: How can someone join the Mary Kay family as a consultant?

Antigone: I would be happy to share the business of Mary Kay with anyone who is interested. Contact me and let’s schedule a meeting. However, the BEST way to hear about our business and to witness the results in person is to come to one of our meetings. We meet every Monday and/or Thursday at our Homewood center at 6:30 p.m. You will get the opportunity sample our products and witness consultants give testimonies of how they worked their business the previous week. At the end of the meeting anyone interested in joining will have the opportunity on the spot!

OKAY… Now to the free stuff. We will be giving away one (1) Mary Kay Creme Lipstick. It boasts Rich, stay-true color in irresistible glamorous shades. There were too many colors to count and they range from Dusty Rose to Black Cherry to Midnight Red.
