Honesty is the Best Policy

Earlier this week my daughter took me out for breakfast at Bobby's in Woodland Hills.  I have been dining at Bobby's for years and love the food.

After the check was given to us, my daughter scanned the check to make sure the charges were correct.  Basically, making sure we were not over charged.  Instead she found we were not charged for our coffee and orange juice.  For a split second we both thought about not saying anything. Maybe a second passed and a pain of guilt swept across us.  We both said at the same time, that would not be right.  When the waitress returned, my daughter told her about the error.  She began to laugh and say, "I know.   I am not charging you for your drinks.  I can do that.  I have been working here since 1971."  She said, she was happy to see we brought it to her attention.  It let her know there are still honest people out there.  But, clearly this was not an error.

This lead into a conversation about the dishonest people in today's society and all of the negativity that is lurking.

Although, the waitress purposely took off the charges, just think if she had not intended to do so.  I am so happy we decided to point it out to her.

This is one more reason why I like dining at Bobby's.

Happy Friday!

Custom Water Labels Review and Giveaway #icustomlabel

I have begun preparations for my son's 10th birthday party and personalizing many of the decorations and favors has been at the top of my list.   Custom water bottle labels was definitely one of the items on our list.  I ordered labels from icustom labels and am so happy I did.

The ordering process is simple.  There are a variety of themed templates to choose from.  My son is having a Michael Jackson party.  I selected the create your own water bottle label.  I had a picture in mind, so all I had to do was upload it to the selected template.  Uploading the picture was easy, but after the picture was uploaded, it kept disappearing when I clicked on it.  Eventually I figured out how to keep the photo on the page and all I had to do was add my text.

After designing the custom labels, everything was good to go.  While planning this party, I have opted to not share everything I am planning with my son, but I was so excited about these labels I just had to show them.   I did not want to wait until the labels arrived or until his birthday party, that is a long time from now.

When I decided to show the draft of the labels to my son,  I wanted to kick myself when I went to the site to show him.  Unfortunately, I was unable to, because I placed my order as a guest. I do not know what I was thinking. After I got over my disappointment, my order was delivered within a couple of days.  That was fast!   I could not wait to show my son.  He was so excited and surprised.  These labels looked really good!!!

I will not place the labels on the water bottles yet, since the party is a while away.  I am sure they will stick on fine.

I know these water bottle labels will be a hit at his party.

Here is a chance for you to enter your own icustom labels.  Good Lucky

Tattoo Sales Review - Easy Temporary Tattoos- Halloween Tattoos

Oh my goodness! 

For the past 5 years my son has been into tattoos.  When we received Halloween themed tattoos from Tattoo Sales, he could not wait to wake up the next morning and apply a tattoo.

We received a nice selection of temporary tattoos.  There is something the entire family can enjoy, ranging from spiders, skulls, pumpkins and many other ghoulish tattoos.

My son is a professional when it comes to applying temporary tattoos.  These are easy to apply.  There was only one time, well actually this morning, that the he tattoo did not come out smoothly.  He wanted to wear one of the spider tattoos.  He removed the clear top sheet, pressed the tattoo onto  his clean dry skin with the design facing down and then pressed the wet towel against the back of the tattoo for 30 seconds.  Knowing him it was longer.  When  he removed the backing the spider did not look like a spider.  I have found with tattoos that have thin or small detail you have to be very careful.  My son does not usually use hot water.  I think when applying tattoos like this, using hot water is best.

After my son left, I decided to put on the pumpkin tattoo.  I really like it.  It puts me in the Halloween spirit.  They are long lasting, so I will be wearing my pumpkin tattoo for the rest of the week.

I am sure we will be applying more tattoos throughout the week.  Happy Halloween!!!
