As I mentioned a while back, I signed up for Phone Case of the Month. If you're not familiar, it's basically a subscription box for phone cases. For $10/month (including shipping) you receive a case for your phone in the mail (with a few extras tossed in).

The cases are surprisingly a pretty decent quality. I've been using them non-stop since I received my first case.

Here's what I got month #2:

Peacock feather! I've actually gotten a lot of compliments on the case. I like that it doesn't add a bunch of bulk onto my phone (as it's big enough by itself already) and the case doesn't just fly off if I drop the phone (whoops!).

Overall, I'd definitely recommend Phone Case of the Month.

As I said in my first post about PCOTM, they actually have a really nice referral program. If you use my link below, YOU save $5 on your first case... making your first one only 5 bucks! In turn, I also save $5 on my next. It's a win-win.

Take it or leave it. I of course won't force you to use it, I'd just appreciate if you did. :)

Anyway, thought I'd share this little beauty with you! I should really do more subscription box reviews as I do get a variety of them....

*I'm not getting compensated in any way to do this review (heck, I'm not that popular). I just find PCOTM to be a fun subscription box (and I'm mildly addicted). All opinions are of course, my own*

Happy Thursday, all!

I keep making excuses on why I've been MIA from my blog. I really don't have good reasons aside from... I haven't really wanted to take the time to do it. I have other things going on. Things that don't take place in front of a computer. I prefer those kinds of things.

But I do like blogging.

Oh, the conflict.


Life has been good, really good.

Got through a huge annual project at work. It was an "all hands on deck" kind of things, but after about a month of solid work, we got it out the door with a few hours to spare. Yes, I said hours.

I spend basically every Friday at 4pm - Monday at 7am with Tyler. That's a pretty big chunk of my week, and honestly, I wouldn't change a thing. Things between us are pretty easy, and we manage to have a pretty good time. Family time, Wild hockey games, movies, video games, bowling, cruising out and about... it's all good. What can I say? The guy makes me smile. That's huge.

Another Wild game!
I'll probably hear about posting this one.

 So I've been tracking my food pretty darn well, trying to keep on keepin' on. Lately I've been cooking with cabbage. Kind of weird... I hated it as a kid. HATED. Now I love the stuff. And it's the St. Patrick's time of year, so it's fitting. I do still have my crazy sweet tooth though, and I indulge on occasion. This beauty is a sampling of that indulgence:
Uh huh. That's an awesome Coconut doughnut from a local bakery. AMAZING!

If you live in a state that doesn't have these, I feel terrible for you. They're amazing. At least, I think they are. Every Friday night at bowling league I toss in $20. It goes to the local Lion's Club so if I lose, no biggie. Except it's not often that I lose. Haha. Drives Tyler crazy, but I love it. Example from last weekend:

So there you have it. There's my life as of late.

Happy Wednesday, all!
