Review of Natural Miracles and giveaway

A Safe and Natural Way to Ease Discomfort – Yes – I'm all for that!

E098f8_8b490a3afa6117297d1db263f579bead.png_srz_200_215_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_png_srz

I was a little skeptical that the Natural Miracles Remeeda could
stop the muscle and joint pain in a fast and effective way but I gave it a try
and I was completely amazed. I had a nagging knee and calf muscle pain all day
at work. My first thought was as soon as I get home, I have to take a pain pill
for this leg or I'm not going to be able to sleep. I tried the Natural Miracles Remeeda and within 30 minutes the pain had subsided and has stayed away ever since and
it's been two days now. I am super impressed with this product.

This product is made to be taken without food, which is
perfect for me. I need to have a product that I can take when I think about it,
not something that has to go with a meal or I'll forget. I had no problems with
taking the capsule or the digestion of it.

I am very happy with this product and recommend it to anyone
who wants to get back to a more natural way to ease aches and pains.

Now that you've hear about my experience with Natural Miracles, go read

Currently It’s Just Hot.

Since it's Sunday and I'm completely blah I thought I'd combined my Currently with the Sunday Social. Anwsering questions about completely unimportant topics just to pass the time – join in!

Here's your WTF picture for the week:

Trike

Currently:

Watching: House of Anubis – Yes I was doing that last week too! That's what happens when Amazon Prime offer 8 seasons of a show for free.

Listening to: Crickets outside – I'm trying to decide if they are relaxing or just plain annoying.

Thinking about: When should I get in the pool? – Now and stay in it all day or do something productive (like this) then get in.

Trying to figure out: What to pack. – The one thing about vacation – what to pack.

Looking forward to:  Our Washington D.C. trip with Hub's BFF – There is nothing more fun than a spy museum with friends.

Reading: Nothing, still. - Why hurt my brain right now.

Making me happy: My new Coach bag – Thrift store score.

 

Now for the Sunday Social:

1. What is your favorite TV as a kid? 

Dukes Of Hazzard – My heart belongs to Bo Duke, that's what my nightgown said.

2. What is your current favorite TV show?

Downtown Abbey – I love a good British Drama.

3. Which reality show would you NEVER do?

All of them. I can think of one that I would do.

4. Which reality show would you LOVE to do?

See Above – but if I could sew, I'd love to do Project Runway – but I can't so none.

5. What is the TV personality/character that you feel is most like you?

Lorelai Gilmore – smart ass mom, who tried to stay awesome while raising a super smart but witty daughter

6. Which TV character would you want to date?

Seeley Booth on Bones – David Boreanaz – BUT it's Booth NOT Angel. I love Booth! And as much as I love Buffy – Angel was a complete whiny puss. (although still a hottie)

Listening to: Camera Obscura – They rocked the concert I went to on Tuesday! 

Thinking about: The 101 craft ideas I have in my brain that need to get out!

Trying to figure out: Why I left this family get a pool.

Looking forward to: The pool being full of water so we can use it – will that happen before the end of summer – probably not.

Making me happy: That it's Saturday.
