Tuesdays Tunes: Miranda Lambert and Pistol Annies

Good Tuesday All!  This weeks Tuesday Tunes goes out to my girl crush Miranda Lambert and her band Pistol Annies.  Every time I hear one of her song's it totally relates to what I am feeling or going though at that time.  I love that she is the "rebel" girl of country music right now The music she sings and writes (i hope) comes from the heart and may have been influenced by personal choices or experiences.  I really feel that the more personal the song is the more it will relate to others.  This week I have chosen Miranda Lamberts "Mama's Broken Heart" and Pistol Annies "Hell on Heals". 

I am addicted to her newest song, "Mama's Broken Heart".   I could listen to this song over and over again as loud as possible.  This song could be my theme song right now.  Mama's Broken Heart is about how some people take a break up and that a "girl war" is a lot more then most people think (just watch mean girls).  As a woman, you have to always have a beautiful face on especially  when you are really hurting inside and plotting the revenge on the men and or women who have hurt you the most. 

"Can’t get revenge and keep a spotless reputation
Sometimes revenge is a choice you gotta make"

  My second song of the week is by Pistol Annies, Miranda Lamberts all girls group.  Every song I have heard by Pistol Annies is wonderful.   They sing about what my friends and I (I am sure some of you also) talk about all the time, finding us a sugar daddy so that we do not have to work anymore or for the rest of our lives.  I am sure that this is not the most appropriate or politically correct, but I love it and that is all that matters!!
"He made me pretty; He made me smart; I'm gonna break me a million hearts:
I'm hell on heels;
Sugar Daddy, I'm coming for you"

I love linking up with Holli and Lauren with their Tuesdays Tunes. I can't wait to read and hear the songs that you are jamming out to this week.  

Enjoy All!

Product Review ... off brand K-cups

Good Thursday All,
I am going to attempt to give a product review and or a little bit of a complaint about a product that I have recently bought and unsatisfied with it. I wouldn’t say that I am a coffee snob or anything like that (I do not drive through Starbucks every morning), but I do like a decent cup of coffee in the morning before I go to work or watching TV on the weekends.
I have a Keurig coffee maker and I think it is the best thing I have ever received when buying my house.  I do have my favorite K-cups that I keep at the house and I do try different packs to see if there is another “flavor” of coffee that I prefer over another, but I usually have a few staples that I keep for me on an every day basis. But last week at the store I purchased Kroger brand K-cup’s. They were freaking horrible. Especially when it says, compared to Folders Medium roast (which is a staple for my house). 
If you have a Keurig brewer, 99.9% after you open it up the next time you use it there are grounds of coffee on the top and or you can not see through the cup if you look through the hole. If you push on it you can feel that there is something inside there before and after the cup is used. If it’s a filter, new or used grounds or just a little bit of sogginess from the water that just ran thought it is not completely empty, I don't know what it is, but you can tell something is in there. Well these Kroger K-cups there is absolutely nothing inside them except for grounds and once the water goes through the K-cup they ate completely empty!!! I am convinced that they used instant coffee when filling up their "K-cups”.   I watched it this morning "pour" into my cup and it was a normal coffee for the first half then after that it was just clear hot water!  It was the grossest coffee that I have ever had!

I am pretty "adventurous" when it comes to trying store brand products and most of them are pretty on the mark for not being able to tell a difference.  But store brand K-cups is officially on my list to never go cheep on again. 
Has any one else had any bad experiences with "store brand" products or K-cups?  I'd love to hear about it!
