i was tempted to buy a bow and arrow

If someone asked me a few years ago if I ever planned to spend part of a date night in the hunting department of the sporting goods store, looking at countless types of guns and ammunition, I would have said HECK TO THE NO.

  And I would have been very, very wrong, because look where I accompanied Matt the other night.

Oh my.

When I saw the post title, I was like "WHAT!!!" Clearly you've read about how I am. Ha! :)

Birchbox: I will send you an email invite, and you can check it out/sign up (if you sign up, I get points, so SIGN UP!) ...just kidding...

It is a box that is 10 dollars a month (you can do it however many months you want, I believe, but I just signed up for a year) and you get samples (aka: travel size) of "high end" make-up products to try. If you review them, you get "points", and your points add up as a discount to buy the "regular" size item off of the website.

It's really just an opportunity to TRY higher end brands before you go pay an arm & a leg for them, and then wind up not liking them at all.

You get 4-5 samples per box, and they send a card in each box explaining what each product is. If you order something within the same month as it was shipped in your box (Ex: if I ordered something IN July from my July box) there would be free shipping and *I think* 15% off.

Wow... I could be a Birchbox Represenative.

There's also another program called Eco Emi, and they do all organic stuff, but they do lots of food samples, and birchbox's main focus is make-up (although sometimes they send food, nail polish, one month I got a "greeting card") and they have a lot of organic companies that are partnered with them as well!

Hope I helped! :)

I LOVE hunting! And trust me, if you would have asked me if I would ever hunt when I was little, I would have SCREAMED no because I LOVED Bambi!

Anyways, love the blog and I am now a follower! Have a great weekend!

Hahaha. That's awesome. I'm still waiting for the expected day where I will have to do the same thing with Boyfriend. *sigh* Yay?

I love it. Hey, sometimes date nights end up being all kinds of random!!! Go for it girl! The last time I was around a bow and arrow was Girl Scout Camp many many years ago!!
