When Life Gives You Lemons, Sometimes You Can’t Make Lemonade…

So sometimes in life something crappy happens and people say “when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade”.  Well today was not one of those days.  

Today the Air Force announced the E-6 results.  My husband was in that category.  I am not going to go into detail about how I feel about the changes that have been made regarding the new ranking system, so I will just say that it was made much harder for everyone involved.  This was his 2nd time taking the test and we learned today that he did not make it, again.  This time he missed it by .4 points.  That means there was 1 person above him that was the cutoff to make rank.

My husband is a strong man.  He will make it past this not because there is no other choice but because he always keeps his head held high. It might take him a few days to get back to his normal self again, but he will get there.  He will also be all the better for it!  This will not be his all the end all (it feels like it though).  I will tell you what he isn’t though and that is weak!  He doesn’t need your sympathy, he needs your solidarity and so does everyone else that didn’t make it today.

So to all the other men/women out there that didn’t make Tech this year, I admire your resilence, dignity and your perseverance.  I know it is hard, but I also know that you will all go into this test next year and make it your Bitch!  

So in short, we were given lemons today, but we didn’t make lemonade.  We rode the roller coaster of emotions instead!  Even though we don’t have lemonade, we now have lemons and I will make a mean pitcher of sangria with them… So thank you!

I love this man!  I don’t know who he is personally, but his products are amazing!  I have written before about the power peel microdermabrasion that I absolutely love. Well now I have finally decided to buy a few more products of his to try!

I got the 3 Little Wonders kit from Sephora a couple of weeks ago and have been hooked since I first tried it!  When you buy this set you get Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Sheer Transformation, and Invigorating Night Treatment.

I use the Collagen a booster in the morning after I get out of the shower.  Once it has soaked all the way into my skin, I then use the Sheer Transformation lotion on top as my daily lotion.  The Vitamin C Lotion smells A M A Z I N G.  It is like putting fresh peeled oranges on your face.  

At night I use the Night Treatment and then again after it has soaked into my skin I use the Sheer Transformation lotion.  I can actually feel the Night Treatment tightening my skin as soon as I put it on.

Together all of these products have been great for my skin.  I feel like my skin tone is a lot more even then before I started and I have also started to notice that my forehead wrinkles are not as prominent and are a lot softer!


The 1st pic was about 3 weeks ago and the 2nd pic was this morning.  Please disregard my very crooked nose… I know it is probably hard for you to actually see all the results that I am talking about, but I can tell (and that is all that really matters)!  I read a bunch of the reviews online before and I went and bought this set and most of them were very positive and said something very similar to what I have said.  Overall I think these products are worth it.  I still have months worth of product left to use and I can’t wait to see if the results will continue to get better!
