Oh, this week was full of tech drama, a warning and a funny text from my son about a potential NBA recruit at his school. Thanks for stopping by today. Here is what is happening on the Weekend Edit.
On Wednesday I spent 57 minutes making a 42-second video where I stared at the wrong end of my iPhone. My eyes looked a lot like Elliott’s eyes in that video. Please tell me where to look on an iPhone when filming head-on into my face.
I posted the video here. I hope someone viewed it.
Tech Hack & Reward Style
It’s ironic that I shared this tech hack because on the same day I received an email that I am on double-secret probation with Reward/Style for lack of action on my account.
This is the email I sent to “Tori”. I hope Tori is not a bot.
Hi Tori/ Influencer Support Inbox,
Please don’t quit me! The struggle was real the first 3 months trying to upload widgets and posts and links and favorites.
I am slowly figuring it out. I cannot get the ninja pin to work. I uploaded it to my browser, but it refused to recognize my login firstname.lastname@example.org (like Colorado)
Tori sent me a password reset from Reward/Style.
Earlier this week, our youngest (the baby) texted us that he had an “interaction” in the college campus cafe with the #5 recruit/draft pick for the NBA.
Here’s our text exchange, which I forwarded to the family group text, Evan’s uncles and grandpa.
Notice there is no, “hey mom” introduction, just a “Pretty cool” which is better than most of his texts and phone calls that start with, “Funny story mom…”
Here is a giveaway for makeup brushes and a jewelry organizer. If you are interested in co-hosting future Giveaways please email me.

I am not crafty at all because I lack patience. But this DIY on how to make beeswax candles here looks manageable. It reminded me of this fun candle kit; which tapped into my inner child and my Shrinky Dinky days.
Here are my favorite finds this month!
