Getting the Gear

My husband and I are not much of an outdoorsy couple. If there isn't a Country Inn & Suites involved we don't go. Although my husband knows quite a bit about camping gear, because of a college class that he took that dealt completely with camping and being outdoors. So I would feel completely comfortable with going camping with my husband know that he has the experience that he does.

Baby Talk

Scott and I are always looking for honest reviews and advice on the different baby shops, gear and services that are available in our area for our little girl. We want the very best and never having had children before...don't always know what is recommended. is a site that I like to use because it offers real parent reviews for those looking for baby products, services and activities close by. I use this site often...even to find pediatricians in my area. If you're like me and want the very best for your little girl or boy...take a look at this site today! You won't be sorry you did!

Busy, Busy

I suppose I better get off of the computer and get my bills done. I am really not looking forward to doing them...but they can't wait any longer. I'd much rather be on my computer blogging...but there's work to be done that I really need to do. Hopefully I'll have some time later on today to continue to blog...we'll have to see how long all of my work is going to take me.

Christmas Lights

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is drive around and admire all of the Christmas decorations. I love it when people have pretty lights around their home and on their trees and bushes. I told Scott hat next year I'd really like to have lights on our house. When we were out shopping this past week, we came across some outstanding sales on Christmas lights and bought some for next year. I can't wait to use them!!

Wedding Planning

Planning a wedding can be a very fun time in ones life, but it can also be quite overwhelming with all of the details that must be figured out. It's great having people that can help you with the details, as well as helpful sites that are known for their great services. is one of those sites that helps brides and grooms get their weddings the way they want them by offering interactive planning tools, advice, photos, vendor lists and much more! If you're planning a wedding and need a little assistance with things...take a look at this site today and see if it's something you'd be interested in using.

Lots to do

I feel like my work is never done. I would love to just relax for a while on the weekends, but the bills need to be done, the house needs to be cleaned and the grocery list needs to be finished. It's just never ending it seems. At least I have a great hubby who helps me out a lot. I don't know what I would do if he wasn't so good to help.

Diet Pills

I have heard of so many different people who take different diet pills. In researching this further, i have found that there are a number of diet pills out there fore people to use and try. I am not sure what the actual success rate is by using most of these pills...but know that one I hear about often on the net and television is hoodia. Have you ever heard of it before? If not, you should look into it looks like a good product.

Super Bowl Tickets

Finding Super Bowl tickets can be a bit overwhelming and stressful for those football fans out there who want to be there for the game. Now you need not be as stressed out this year. TicketsNow is a site that offers premium tickets for events like the Super Bowl. They offer a large supply of super bowl tickets for football fans. I was happy to hear this, because my husband is one of these people who really would enjoy attending this game. I'm going to look into it, and you should too. But don't wait for the Super Bowl don't stick around for long.


Even though Christmas Day is over with, we still have two more Christmas's to attend. We have a Christmas with Scott's dad's side on Friday, and then one on my dad's side next week. It's actually nice to have the Christmas's spread apart a little bit. It's not as stressful. We had Scott's mom's Christmas and two of my my Christmas's earlier in the week and now a couple more yet to come. It's just nice to have them spread out a little.


Yesterday was a fun, but long day. Scott and I had some gift cards and money from Christmas that we wanted to use before he has to go back to work next week. We have Kaelyn now, so going shopping for the day isn't always an easy task. Thankfully it went very smoothly. We left right around the time that Kaelyn takes her afternoon nap, so she slept for much of the time that we were gone. She was getting tired of being in her car seat by the time we got back home...but she did VERY well!

Things to do

I suppose I better get to some of the work that needs to be done while Kaelyn is napping. I really would like to get some work done on the computer today, but we'll just have to see how the day goes. The cleaning and bills are more important at this point. Hopefully I will get to my other work later in the day when Scott gets home from work. That would be nice.

Never Enough Time

There never seems to be enough time in a day. I always have a long list of things to get done, and usually never even get close to getting it all done. I have cleaning to do, laundry, bills, etc...and I just have to take it one thing at a time I guess. It just gets a bit overwhelming when there's so much to do and not enough time in a day to get it all done. I'm sure many people feel like this from time to time.

Getting a Master's

Time Off

I'm really looking forward to Scott having some much needed time off this holiday season. With his job he keeps very busy and it's difficult for him to take much time off. He's taking off a week and a half over the holidays and I'm really looking forward to him being around to spend some time with the family. I know he's really looking forward to it as well! It will be a great holiday season with us all together.:)

Hotel Reservations

Planning a vacation can sure be stressful. Finding Hotel Reservations that suit your needs and budget is one of the most stressful decisions in my opinion. That's why I'm really interested in using the next time I travel. They have a variety of offerings with hotels, motels, resorts, vacation rentals and more. They also offer very competitive rates which is a huge plus when you're looking for a great deal! if you'd like to find a deal, and great discounts on world wide destinations even...check out this site today!!

Christmas is almost here

It sounds like the weather is going to hold out for us this weekend so that traveling is made easy for all who have places to go for Christmas. I was happy to hear this, as we have to travel a short ways for all of our family Christmas's. Not having the ice and snow like they thought we were going to have will be very nice. It will just be a pleasant white Christmas. Here in the midwest that's wonderful!! I'm looking forward to it!

Wine Club

I for one do not drink wine, but I know there are many people out there who really enjoy having a glass of wine every once in a while. If this is you, then you should definitely check out the Gold Medal wine of the month club. This is America's leading wine club, so I'm sure you may have heard of them before. They deliver two wines per month to your home for you to try. From what I hear, these are the best wines in the world...and definitely worth trying if you're interested in doing so! Does this sound like a club you'd like to be part of? If so, take a minute and check out their wonderful site. You'll learn that joining this club does not include any sign up fees and you're free to cancel at any time. I thought this sounded pretty good and definitely worth it if you enjoy great wine. Do yourself a favor and see for yourself all this club has to offer bye checking out their site today!


If you're like me, then you definitely know how great it is to have many different candles throughout your home. I for one like different scents of candles in my home depending on the time of year. For instance, this time of year, I enjoy the cinnamon and spice smelling candles. Other times of the year you might find smells like apple or vanilla. I guess it just depends on my mood. I just love walking into my home and smelling those wonderful scents. How about you? Do you enjoy candles?


Both of my brothers are absolute fanatics when it comes to game systems like the xbox 360. I don't know if you'll find anyone else who loves it more than these two. I think it's great that they have a hobby like this that they enjoy doing so much. I've never gotten into the gaming systems like these before, but I'm sure that they can be quite fun. My husband used to enjoy this more when he was in college, but doesn't have much time for it anymore. If he did have time though, he'd definitely enjoy having an xbox 360 as well.

What a blessing

What a blessing children are!! I look at Kaelyn and still can't believe that she's here. It's so amazing how God gives us the gift of children. It's so fun to watch her change and grow each and every day. She is now smiling and cooing so much...we just love it!! We don't want her to grow up too fast, but we do look forward to all of the great milestones ahead. For instance...we can't wait until she reaches out when we pick her up...just little things like that are what we enjoy most!

Great Little Girl

Kaelyn was having a few fussy evenings there for a while...but she has really snapped out of that the last few nights. She has been really happy and content for most of the day and night. In fact, last night she enjoyed spending some time with her daddy and then went to bed around 10:30 or so. She woke up at 6:45 just to feed for a little bit and then went back to sleep until 10:00 this morning. She's such a great baby!!

Well, with their new Nimbus VoIP Call Center Edition...they allow you to get a phone system with low upfront costs, quick your phone system will be up and running within 7 days...and they make it so there's no investment for moving or adding.

Growth Spurt??

Kaelyn has been more fussy than usual the past day or so. From what I hear, when babies go through growth spurts, they can be extra fussy. The doctor said that she'd probably be going through a growth spurt right around that would make sense. Hopefully it doesn't last too long I hate to see her unhappy throughout the day.


We were able to go back and spend some time with my parents last weekend. We sure had a nice time with we always do when we're back to see them! I feel kind of bad for their doggy though. She's just not sure what to think of our little girl. She's never been around a baby she is very nervous around her. We don't know quite what to do to make her feel more comfortable. She's just so curious and always looking in her playpen and trying to lick her. I think she's also wishing she got a little more attention while Kaelyn was around. She's a spoiled doggy and not used to someone else getting the attention.

Florida Vacation

Someday my husband and I really want to plan a vacation to Orlando Florida. He has never been there and neither has our daughter. I have been there though and absolutely love it!! I think everyone would have such a wonderful time. For fun, I've been looking around the net to see what kind of deals are out there. seems to offer lots of good deals and seems to be a great source for discount tickets to Disney World and other parks as well. You can also find tickets to dinner shows, attractions and more by using this site! Sound like something you'd be interested in? If so, then you should definitely check this site out today! It doesn't matter if you're looking for Seaworld Tickets or something else...they're sure to have what you're looking for at a price you won't find anywhere else!

Always Dark Out

IT seems to be getting dark earlier and earlier, and staying dark later and later. My husband doesn't like this because he feels like he goes to work in the dark and comes home in the dark. It's not much fun when you don't really get to enjoy the daylight much during the week. I guess that's how winter is here where we live though. Soon enough it will be spring and the hours will get better again.

Picture Technology

Speaking of ordering pictures...don't you think it's wonderful how easy it is to do these days. It used to be that you had to carry your film into the photo shop...and then pick it up days later. Now, with the digital technology that we have, we can submit our photos online and have them ready to pick up at a Walmart or something just hours later!! I think this is wonderful!! Technology is sure great, isn't it?!?!

Las Vegas

I have been to Las Vegas, but my husband never has. That's why sometime I'd like for us to plan a little vacation to go there. My husband has heard about all of the amazing Las Vegas Hotels and all of the fun things there is to do I know he'd enjoy going someday. I think when the time comes for us to plan a vacation there...we will look at the Best of Vegas site. They allow you to find hotels, shows and so much more at outstanding prices!! Who wouldn't want to see all that Las Vegas has to offer while not worrying about spending lots of money?!? I k now this is something that I'm interested in checking out and you may be too. Learn more on their site today to see if it's something you might use when traveling to Las Vegas next time.

Ordering Pictures

Ever since Kaelyn was born, I feel like the time I have to do things around the house is limited. She is my full time job now, and I spend much of my day with her. I have been wanting to sit down and order some pictures that we've taken of her so the frames in her nursery are still empty. I guess I just need to make it a point to do this before anything else today. I would love to get some pics up of her around the house!

New Mommy!

I recently was talking with my friend who just had a baby boy. He is only a week old, but is already sleeping pretty much through the entire night!! I told her I thought that was great and amazing!! The new parents are getting some much needed rest, and they are appreciating how good their baby has been so far! The new mommy was also telling me how much she is enjoying staying at home with him and watching him grow and change each day. I think that's great that she's staying at home and raising her kids.


I remember one of the biggest costs and stresses of planning our wedding was the flowers. They are far more expensive than we had realized! I wish we would have known about when we were planning our wedding...but just because we weren't able to take advantage of their great deals...doesn't mean you can't! This site makes buying flowers for your wedding or other event easy and affordable!! You will find wholesale roses, calla lilies, rose petals and much more at prices you won't find anywhere else!! They even use an overnight express...which means the quality of your flowers will be wonderful! If you're planning a wedding or other big event and need great flowers at prices you can afford...take a look at this site today!

Say Cheese...:)

Scott and I were pretty excited to have our first family picture taken of me, him and Kaelyn since we brought her home from the hospital. We've decided to put these pics on our Christmas card so everyone can meet our precious little girl, Kaelyn!! It's still so neat to think that we are now a family of three!! We are so blessed to have such a wonderful baby and to have started our family. We just love this next stage in our lives...every moment is one to remember and cherish!

Very Cold Weather

Well, it looks like the sun is shining, but it's still bitter cold out there today!! I like it that it's not snowing or icing out, but I could definitely do without all of this snow!! I feel bad for Scott, because he's usually outside shoveling most days in this cold weather. He handles it pretty well, but he has to be freezing by the time he comes inside. He also works outdoors a lot at that must not be too much fun either! I'm hoping it warms up a bit...these one digit temps just aren't making winter very enjoyable.

Anyone who has ever traveled to Florida knows how much there is to do there. When you travel to a place like this, you're bound to run into a wealth of information on the web about the things to do there. The problem with that is that it makes it very time consuming for the traveler who is interested in planning a trip with little stress and in a timely manner. Lowery's recognized that this was a problem on the web, and created a site, for those who are looking for valuable information about Florida all in one place. They have a rental car service, ticket service, and online booking for those who are interested in Pool Homes, Condo's, Orlando Holiday Villas, and much more!! If you're planning a trip to Florida...look no further than this site for all your planning needs!


It seems that as the months past I learn of more and more people that I know are having babies. Recently a few of good friends of mine both had babies. One had a girl and the other two had boys. I wish that we all lived closer to each other, as our kids are all pretty much the same age and I would love for our kids to grow up together. I guess you never know what can happen...maybe someday we'll end up living closer to each other. We'll just have to see.

Lots to do!

I don't know if anyone else can relate...but it seems I wake up each day with a long list of things that i need to get done. Usually it consists of cleaning, laundry, bills, etc. Lately I've especially been needing to get our Christmas cards finished up and sent out but that just doesn't seem to be happening too quickly. I'm really going to have to try and make an effort to do that before I do anything else today so it gets to people before Christmas! :)

Booking Hotels

When we travel one of the things we are most interested in finding is a nice hotel for a price that we can afford. Sometimes it seems you pay far too much for the places you stay in, and we just can't do that. We also like it when they offer the right accommodations, something else that isn't always easy to find. From what I hear, it especially hasn't always been easy for those who book in Spanish to find places like this either. For people like me, and those who may be booking Spanish, is there to help. They make it easy for people to find what they're looking for...even those who are booking in Spanish. They have a great customer service center that can help as well. The site,, is designed to help those needing to book in Spanish which I think is wonderful! Check out this site today and learn more about their ofertas de hoteles.

Hotels Las Vegas

Growing up, we as a family took a few trips. Jenna's family went on vacations pretty much every year. They enjoyed staying at different types of hotels. hotels Las Vegas style were the most interesting. They have such unique, fancy, huge hotels. They had a great time visiting Las Vegas. The weather was very warm at the time however. They saw many sites and walked down the strip to see all of the high rise hotels. So many lights and noises. She'll never forget it.


Boy, the weekends sure do fly by. We went and stayed with my parents a night and then went to church with them on Sunday. It was fun to visit our old church where we grew up. Many had not yet got a chance to meet Kaelyn, so that made it extra special. I think we will get the chance to go back and visit around Christmas time as that should be fun!! :)

Friday, December 7, 2007


My husband knows how much I love espressos and recently suggested that we get one. I've been looking all around and so has he, and both of us agree that a capresso Espresso machine would be great!! We've looked and looked and feel this would be the best choice for what we're looking for. If you've never had an espresso before, you should definitely try it out. Once you have one you'll definitely be looking for a machine like this too!!

Rehab Search

I have never personally gone through an addiction treatment program of any kind. However, from what I've learned in talking with other who seems as though deciding on a treatment program is not an easy decision. In fact, it can be quite a stressful one and quite overwhelming. There are so many rehabilitation centers out there, and it's difficult for people to find the one that's right for them. Since there's no such thing as a "one size fits all" program...searching around for the right one is crucial! This can make things very stressful and the search time consuming.


Hopefully the weather stays nice this weekend, because Scott and I are planning on going back to see my parents and taking Kaelyn to the church we grew up in. We're looking forward to introducing her to everyone and are just hoping that the weather will cooperate so we can go. Lately it's been snowing and icing off and on...but today was really we're hoping this weather will continue through the weekend. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.


Do you or someone you know need some assistance in finding answers to the questions you have about finding a care home or something along those lines?? Maybe you need some information on finances regarding this issue?! If any of this sounds like something you're dealing with, you should really check out BetterCaring. They are a great site that offers resources and services for those who are looking for care options and answers regarding this issue for themselves or someone they love.

If you're interested in learning more for yourself...take a look at their site today!! It's laid out very nicely and easy to navigate!

Nice weather?!?

The weatherman had originally said that this weekend wasn't supposed to be very nice this weekend...but now it's looking like it won't be as bad as everyone thought. It sounds like there's only about 10% chance that it will snow tomorrow...and then Sunday is supposed to be nice. Hopefully that's the way it ends up...because we don't need any more snow around here or any more bad weather. I'd like it if it was just nice out for a change.

Great Shirt

I was really excited when I had the opportunity to get a beach wedding attire shirt from for my husband. I wasn't sure how he would like it, but it turns out he thinks it's very nice and something he will wear often! I'm really happy with the quality of the it's very thick and seems very nice. I think this is a shirt that will last for a very long time. I also liked how they offered the shirt in many different colors. My husband wears many colors of shirts, so it was fun to pick out a color that he doesn't have much of. The sage color really looks nice on him. If you're in the market for a nice dress shirt for you or someone else...I recommend you take a look at this site today! They so much to offer, and you know that when you order from that you're getting quality which is very important when it comes to nice clothes.

Relaxing Night

Tonight will be nice just to be home. The weather isn't supposed to be very nice, and with all the running around we've been doing will be nice just have a night at home with Kaelyn and Scott. I know Scott will like it last night we went out of town the minute he got home from work and didn't get back until almost 10. I think he'll enjoy just relaxing and watching House tonight.

Baby Bouncy Seat

Kaelyn has lots of nice toys and things, but one of her favorite things is to sit in the bouncy seat that we have. She enjoys sitting there, watching the lights flash on it and listening to the music. She doesn't spend a whole lot of time in it, but every once in a while we'll put her in it since she enjoys it so much. We've tried to put her in her swing a few times, but so far she doesn't seem to like it as much as the bouncy seat. Hopefully with time she'll enjoy it more.

Dr Appt. Tomorrow

Tomorrow Kaelyn has her one month doctor's appointment. Scott and I just can't believe she's already one month. Scott's happy because he's going to be able to make it to the appointment with me. He hasn't been able to meet the pediatrician yet, so he's happy that he's going to be able to be there. That's one nice thing about this time of's pretty easy for him to get off from work now that the snow is on the ground and the ground is pretty much frozen.

Christmas Time

I can't believe that Christmas is right around the corner. It doesn't hardly seem possible that it could already be that time of year. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone. Even just the past few months has gone pretty fast. Kaelyn is already a month old which is just amazing to me!! What a fun holiday season this is going to be with her this year!! I can't wait.

They put the finest gourmet food and really offer a unique service. If you'd like to learn more about them and all that they can offer you...take a look at their site today!!

Enjoying our day

We sure got a lot of snow this weekend. The weatherman said we would, but I didn't know that we'd get so much! It was actually icing for most of the day, which did not make driving very much fun! We had to run out just for a couple things and we decided after that, that we'd stay indoors for the rest of the day. It was nice just to be home and enjoy the day as a family.

Christmas Decorations

Well, this past week we finally got up all of our Christmas decorations. It feels so nice to have everything up. It really feels like Christmas is almost here. I love having the Christmas tree up with all the lights. I also enjoy looking outside and seeing all of the houses around with lots of Christmas lights on them. What a nice time of year!!

New Family Room

My husband and I bought our house a few months ago. One thing we'd like to do in the near future is begin redoing our basement. It's almost completely unfinished, so we'd really like to make part of it into a nice family room. My husband would love to get a nice plasma television down there at some point. I think it would be nice to get one of those tv lifts for it. A tv lift would really look nice down there.

Monex Deposit Company

I'm sure many of you have heard of the Monex Deposit Company before. The reason I say that is because they've been around for many years are known as America's leader when it comes to investing in precious metals like gold and silver. You can purchase precious metals through them and have them delivered for safe storage at a bank or depository. It's actually great time to buy silver as the demand for it exceeds the annual production of it. If you're interested in investing in silver or us gold coins, then you should definitely look into Monex and all they have to offer.

Winter Weather

Unfortunately it doesn't look like the weather is going to be very nice this weekend. I was hoping to get some Christmas shopping done since Scott has the weekend off...but I'm not sure the weather is going to allow that. We already have a lot of snow on the ground...and by the sounds of it we could get quite a bit more before the weekend is over. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what the weather does.

Lapband Procedure

Journey Lite specializes in the Lap Band system procedure. This is a procedure that helps people lose weight safely. It's the least invasive weight loss surgery that I've come across and is one that truly helps people enhance their quality of life. Basically there is a band placed on the upper portion of the stomach helping to reduce the capacity of the stomach and restrict the amount of food that can be taken in. Since the person is ultimately full faster and hungry less helps them lose weight. If you'd like to learn more about this great procedure or find a lap-band doctor and see if it's right for you....check out their site today.

Leftovers for Lunch

I really need to get something to eat for lunch before Kaelyn wakes up from her nap. I never know quite what to eat...but I'm thinking leftovers or something would be best. This is a quick choice for lunch and something that I can eat in time before Kaelyn is ready to wake up and eat again. I think meatloaf is what I will have!! Yum! Leftovers are the best aren't they?!?!!

Holiday Season

With Thanksgiving behind us...that leaves us the big holiday that many of us look forward to!! Christmas of course! With Christmas comes a time to celebrate and spend time with family. It also means it's time to shop. This year I not only have my husband to shop for, but also my daughter. I know that my husband would absolutely love some tools and other things from Home Depot, so I'm definitely going to be shopping there for him. Our daughter is still very young, but I know that I'm going to want to buy her some clothes and probably some toys. I think the best place to do this would be they have everything I'm looking for. I think the best way to shop for my loved ones this holiday season is by using They make it easy for me to shop online and save money using coupon codes! You should check them out too!!


I can't believe how much our daughter has changed over the past four weeks. She was born four weeks ago tomorrow...and when I compare the pics that were taken when she was first born and the pics that we've taken more recently she hardly looks the same. She's filled out so much and is just looking more like a baby and not a newborn. I've loved every stage she's gone through so far, and can't wait to watch her continue to change and grow as the weeks go on!


With Christmas around the corner I am sure many people are looking into buying an HDTV. This seems to be a very popular item this it's also something that my husband is wanting pretty badly. I've been searching the net and can't find much of what he's looking for. Well, that is until I came across Krillion. This is a localization search engine which helps me easily search for the samsung HDTV that I'm looking for to find the right price and a local place where I can buy it. I love it, because it cuts down on the time spent surfing the web or shopping in many different stores. Now I know exactly where I can get this television for him.

House Work

I really should limit my time on the computer I must get some things done around the house while Kaelyn is taking her nap. Being a newborn her nap schedule is still somewhat unpredictable, so I like to get as much done as I can while she sleeps. She sleeps so much at 12-6:30 or so that during the day she's up more and more. That means I must manage the time that I have very well.

Meeting the Family

Thanksgiving was sure fun this year! It was our daughter's first Thanksgiving, so many people had not gotten to meet her yet. It was fun to watch all of the aunts, uncles, and cousins enjoying holding her and getting to know her. I can't wait until Christmas as she will be a little older and awake a little bit more I'm sure. Gosh, speaking of will be here before we know it!!

Colon Cleanse

Today you find more and more people looking into healthier choices. Something I've been hearing more about in the recent months is colon cleanse. I guess we all ingest a lot of toxic things for our bodies without being aware of it. This sounds like are really good way to cleanse you system in a natural way. I'll have to check it out sometime soon.

My husband isn't much into coffee...but I like it every once in a while. Once in a while we'll go to the local coffee shop here in our city and we'll get hot chocolate and cappuccino or something. Last time we were there they were selling espresso machines and Scott wanted to buy one for me. We didn't end up getting it, but I think it would have been nice to have. Maybe sometime we'll get it. I think it's something my brother would enjoy he really enjoys things like too.

Fun Night

Tonight we're going out to eat with Scott's mom and sister. Lately Scott has been working quite late at night, but tonight he's going to try and make sure he's off early so we can all go together. I'm looking forward to we don't get out much now that Kaelyn is here. I don't like to take her out too she is still so little and the weather is getting colder and colder by the day.


Today is a much nicer day than yesterday. When we got out of church yesterday it was sleeting here where we live. Sleet is one of the yuckiest kinds of weather. Snow is probably preferred over sleet, just because sleet is wet and can really make things quite slick outside. Thankfully we got to spend most of our day at home. That's always nice when the weather isn't too nice outside. Thankfully today is much nicer. It's still cold, but there's no sleet or snow.

Security Software

For consumers and small businesses, finding the right computer security software can be difficult. It can be very time consuming and expensive to get all of the software that you need to protect your computer. That's why Software Security Solutions is here to help. They are the best resource for those looking for a layered security solution. What does that mean you might be asking?! Well, if you're looking for a place where you can find the security software you need, such as anti virus, anti spyware and more...then this is the place for you. They make it easy and convenient for you to get the software that you need. Take a look at their site today to learn more about ESET.

Check Cards

I love the convenience of being able to have credit cards as well as a debit card for our checking account. It's rare that my husband or I have a checkbook on hand, so being able to have a card that allows to take money right out of our checking account or savings account is very convenient! Our bank is currently putting a new program into place where the debit cards will now have ID pics on them. I think this will help to improve the cards even more to ensure that only the owner can use it.

Aches and Pains

As people get older they notice more aches and pains. Many times it gets harder for them to do everyday things without feeling some aches while doing them. For instance, sitting for long periods of time, using the computer for a long time, or simply getting out of bed may cause some aches and pains that weren't there before. Whether you suffer from osteoarthritis or something else, know that there is osteoarthritis relief and other pain relief out there for you to take advantage of!

Exercise Equipment

My parents have been into this health kick. They both feel they need to lose weight. I don't think they look to bad, but if it makes them feel better to work out then that's what they should do. They went out and purchased some exercise equipment They even brought over a machine for me. I may use it now that Kaelyn my baby is here.


My parents on their way to see my new little nephew Emry. They should arrive there tomorrow. They are so excited to meet him. Everyone has been waiting for his arrival. He's a big boy at 9 pounds 21 inches. He's a cutie.

I'm sure there are many of you out there who have heard of Payday loans before. In fact, there are probably many of you who have actually taken advantage of how useful a payday loan can be!?! Well, whether you're someone who has heard of them before or not, I'm here to share with you a site that I recently camea cross that helps you to find the best payday loan. They offer a payday loan fee calculator and payday loan quotes so you can make a decision on what you'd like to do.

Cleaning Time

As much as I hate's that time of week when some of the house cleaning must get done! Ever since Kaelyn was born, I've had my parents and hubby helping me out around the house. But, now that my parents are back home and Scott is working so much...I'm left with much of it to do on my own. I suppose I better take advantage of the time that Kaelyn is sleeping to do some of this...otherwise there's no way I'll get it all done today.


As a teacher and now a parent, I know how important it is to give students the additional help that they need. If students are struggling in certain's important to give them one on one help to help them understand and make learning meaningful. Score Learning Centers does just that for students ages 4-14. They have an Innovative Tutor who will help your child an innovative tutoring environment. If this is something that you would be interested in learning more should definitely check them out today! I know that this is something I will look into if needed in the future!!

Church Dedication

Our church recently sent us a letter in the mail congratulating us on the birth of our daughter. They are wanting to honor her the next time we're in church with a flower. We thought this was very nice. Now all we have to do is figure out the next time we're going to be in church. Between my recovery and Scott's job it's been difficult to get there so far. Scott's going to see if he can get this Sunday off from work so we can go.

The Mist

I'm sure almost everyone has heard of Stephen King. Many people have probably seen many of his movies or read his books as well. He is known for his creativity in making the scariest movies of all time!! One of Stephen King's movies that I really like is Shawshank Redemption. I think this is probably one of my favorite movies of his, because although it's not overly scary....the story line is GREAT!! I could watch this movie over and over and it would still have me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what's going to happen next. I really like movies like this, and that's why it's probably one of my favorite movies! He's had many great movies over the years, and soon there will be another one coming out. November 21st, The Mist by Stephen King will be coming out and I'm sure many people are already standing in line to get tickets!! From the things I've read and the research I've done...this is supposed to be quite the movie! It will definitely have you on the edge of your if that's the type of movie you should definitely check it out. In fact, take a look at this webiste about the movie to learn more!! Take a look and see what you think!!

Emry is Here!

Emry William is finally here!! Kaelyn was born a couple of weeks ago...and that's when Emry was to be born too. However, he had his own plans in mind and decided to wait a while to show his cute little face!! We're sure excited that he's finally here and so are his parents!! The holidays will be so much fun this year having two little babies around!! I can't wait. I'm sure we'll be taking LOTS of pics.

Capella University

capella university is an online university that is full accredited and has been around since 1993. They offer graduate degree programs as well as undergraduate degree programs.

My parents are heading down to Texas in a few days to meet my brothers new baby boy. They are so excited to be grandparents for the first time, twice!! Since they're going to Texas, they needed a place for Zoe to stay. I said she could stay here...but since Zoe is still a little unsure about Kaelyn...they thought it would be better for her to go and spend some time with my brother's girlfriend. I would have gladly taken her, but know that it's going to be nice to not have to worry about her being here and worry about taking care of Kaelyn as well. I'm sure Zoe will have a great time!!


While my parents were here over the past week...they brought their dog Zoe too. She is a SUPER sweet dog...but is used to getting all the attention, so she was not used to a little baby being around. I didn't really know what to expect from her, but knew that it would be difficult for her to adjust. She really did a good job...she just gets nervous around Kaelyn and doesn't know what to think. She gets overly excited and just isn't the best when she's around. We had to keep her separated from Kaelyn most of the time. Once Kaelyn is a bit older I think Zoe and she will love playing together though. :)

Symark Software

I recently was browsing the web and read a web release by Symark Software, letting people know that this leading provider of UNIX and Linux security administration solutions, that it's PowerBroker and PowerPassword Programs will support the new HP Integrity servers. These programs provide protect the root account from threats both internal and external as well as allowing IT managers to manage user accounts. I was really impressed with the information in this web release all that Symark Software has to offer. I think you will be impressed as well. Check out their site today to learn more about them and sarbanes 404.

Lots of Pics

I am the type of person who really enjoys taking pictures, but don't get a lot of time to do it. Well, that is until Kaelyn came along. :) Now, between the pictures that my parents took and the pics I've been taking there are more than I think I've ever seen taken just over a weeks time!! I just love having all the pics though. What a great way to make memories and to capture all of the things that she does. For instance, we got a picture of her sucking her thumb for the first time!! It's SO cute!:)

So Cute!

As I sit here and type this, I am watching my wonderful husband hold our new daughter!! I know I've said it before, but I just LOVE seeing him as a daddy!! He's SOO good with her. He loves to just lay on the couch with her on his chest. They are so cute together.:) I've enjoyed taking pics of them, and plan to continue to do so. It's especially so cute because she really is a daddy's girl and just loves spending time with him.:)


You may have heard of the program PowerOptions before, because they offer a complete suite of educational materials. What you may not have known though is that they provide data that you need to invest with stock options. The program, SmartSearchXL is incredible and can't be found anywhere else!! You can find, compare, analyze and so much more with stock option trading. If this is something you'd like to learn more about, as well as the option screener...I recommend you take a look at their site today! You can even take advantage of their 14 day free trial offer. This product may be exactly what you've been looking for.

Busy Season

I feel bad for Scott. With Kaelyn here now, he's really wanting the busy season to be done with so he can be home more. Since the weather has been so nice, he's been staying at work a lot longer. I feel bad for him, because this not only cuts out on the time he gets to spend here at home with Kaelyn and I, but also causes him to be VERY tired at night. I can't wait for this season to be done with so he can take some time off and be home for a change.

New Shows

I feel like I get some time each night to watch a little TV....but I'm always amazed at all the previews of shows that I see when I watch TV that I've never heard of before. It seems that there is always at least one that is new to me. I guess this is good, as it brings variety to the nightly television shows that are on. I'm just always surprised that there are so many different types of shows for people to watch.

Planning a wedding can be a very stressful time. It's fun, but there's lots and lots of details to work through. That's why is there to help. They have been around since 1997 and help brides and grooms with wedding planning. They have free tools, advice, photos, vendor guides, and so much more to help make your wedding planning a breeze!! What a great way to reduce the stress of planning a wedding and allow you to do much of it right one site!! I think it's a great site and I think you will too! Check them out today and see what you think.


I can't believe the change in weather. It seems that last week it was SOOOO cold out, and now this week the days are actually a bit warmer. At night it still gets very cold, but the days warm up a bit. This is ok...except for the fact that it extends Scott's busy season out even more. I think deep down he's hoping the ground will freeze soon so that the busy season will be over for this year. We'll just have to see what happens.

Our Daughter

As we have more and more time with our daughter, we get to know her little personality more and more. We also get to admire all her little features on her face...which is so much fun!! We've learned that she has a dimple on one cheek and that she has the CUTEST facial expressions that she makes with her lips!! I just love watching her!! I knew I'd love having a baby...but the joy that she brings both Scott and I is just incredible.

Job Recruiters

Have you ever heard of A.E. Feldman Associates, Inc. before? If not, then you should know that they are known for their high level of service that they provide the recruiting field. Who wouldn't want to work with a company that is very well known for the successful placements that they make. What I liked best is that they help to build relationships between the industry clients and the clients. It's great for both sides when trying to find employees and for those trying to find quality jobs. If you'd like to learn more about A.E. Feldman Associates, Inc and risk management jobs check out their site today!!

Lots of Company

This weekend was sure busy. I can't believe that it's already here and gone. Time went so quickly because we were not only busy with Kaelyn...but also had company stopping by. It's really nice that people have wanted to come see Kaelyn....she has been getting so spoiled with love and attention! It's such a fun time. It's been hard for me to get out much so it's nice that people have been able to stop by off and on.

Self Defense Products

In today's world there is the concern for our personal safety. Now that I have a child besides I think I'll be looking into some of the self defense products that are out there. They have all kinds of things for adults and now there are even products for children's protection. My Grammy recently gave me a signal transmitter that a child can wear. When the child travels more then 30 feet away I would be aware of it. It sets off a beep as a warning. It is also very cute and child friendly. I'm going to have to give it a try.

What a nice week

It's sure been a nice week having my parents here to help out with things. Kaelyn and I came home from the hospital a week ago today. She's been such a wonderful baby, but has kept me very it was nice having them here to help with the cleaning, baking and even taking care of Kaelyn some. I'm going to be kinda bummed when they leave then it is just me here to do most everything since Scott is in his busy season of work. I know that they have to get going though, and understand that they have jobs to get back to and a grandson to see down in Texas soon. :) They'll be back soon to visit I'm that's good!!

Math Tutors

I grew up in a home with two brothers. I know I have heard my mother say that each of us kids are all quite different. I can see that now that I am older. We all three have different interests and personalities. While going through the school years it was evident that some subjects were easier for some and others more difficult. Math was one subject that could tend to be more difficult. Now with Score Learning Centers there is assistance for those tough subjects. There are Math Tutors to aid your child in progressing academically. No longer does it need to be a struggle for them. Look into Score and help your child succeed.
This is a paid post.

Baking Week

This week has gone by so fast. It is busy season at work for Scott so he isn't able to be home very much. He really hates that when we have just had our first baby. Kaelyn is only 1 week old. She is the sweetest. My mom has been here helping me out this week and she decided to surprise Scott and bake him up some pumpkin bars. He really likes them. That was sure nice.

Wednesday, November 7, 2007


I don't know about you, but for anyone who likes to bake an electric mixer is a must!! The Hamilton Beach® and Eclectrics® Mixer is the one that everyone must check out. I would especially like this mixer for preparing one of my favorite family recipes...pumpkin bars. These bars are so special to me because I grew up eating them and still do to this day!! Everyone who eats the bars just loves them...making them even better to eat and share with others. For anyone interested, the recipe is:
2C Sugar
4 eggs
3/4 C oil
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. cinn.
15 oz can pumpkin
2C flour
greased and floured bar pan
mix all ingredients and bake at 325 for 25 minutes.
It would be so nice to have a Hamilton Beach® Mixer like this over the one that I have because of all the features that it offers those who use it. Mine is very simple and does not do what this one would do. It's very powerful and would help get the job done much more quickly. If you're looking for a great mixer to make those family recipes that are important to you, then I suggest you look into a Hamilton Beach® Stand Mixer . From what I can it's definitely a must have for anyone looking to bake this holiday season.


Wow, I can't believe it's already almost mid November!! Time just goes so quickly. Before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas. What a fun time of year. We're especially excited that we get the chance to celebrate the holidays this year with our new daughter!! It will be so much fun. I can't wait!! I'm sure it will come very quickly and be here before we know it.


Technology is so cool these days. I can't believe how advanced everything has gotten. It seems with every year there is more and more advancements made to help make our lives a little more easy. For instance, I remember learning about fiber optic cables in college and thought that this topic was very interesting. I don't know about you, but even for someone like me who isn't always very knowledgeable about technology...I love learning about new things and ways that it can help us in our day to day lives.

The Knot

Planning a wedding can sure be a lot of work. I mean, between picking out the dress, picking a date and finding all of those fun little things that detail a wedding so perfectly makes for a very time consuming task! That's where The Knot Wedding Shop comes to the rescue. This is a great site that helps those who are planning a wedding make sure that they can find all the supplies that they need. They have unique wedding favors, wedding cameras, ring pillows, personalized gifts, cake toppers and so much more!! I was looking through some of their supplies and was just amazed!! I wasn't only impressed with all they had to offer, but also with their prices as well!! If you're looking for a great place to find wedding supplies, this is definitely your one-stop-shop!! Take a look today and see what you think!!

Will I know??

All I've read and heard throughout my pregnancy is that the number one question that first time moms have is: "will I know when go into labor". It sounds like a silly question, but being someone who's pregnant for the first time and due with our baby at any's definitely one that passes through my mind as well. Whenever people here you ask this question...they say, "you will just know". I am sure after having the baby, I will say yeah..."I definitely shouldn't have worried about that because I knew for sure when I was going into labor"...but never having gone through it before I just can't help but wonder "if I will truly know". I guess I just have to keep watching for the signs that everyone speaks of and hope that helps me know when it is time.:)

Online Casinos

With the popularity of the internet these days...a person can almost find anything that they are looking for at a click of a button. I recently heard that there are now actually online casinos where people can go and play the games that they love. I thought this was a great idea...especially for those of us who'd rather not go to a casino with the mobs of people! The one thing I was thinking though, is that the internet is a huge place...and it must be hard to find an online casino that suits you best. Well, although this is true, I found a great site that was thinking of this way before me!! is an online casino review site. They make it possible for people to check out casinos that others have reviewed...making it simple to find one that they are interested in checking out. I thought this was much easier than surfing the web for hours on end!!

Meeting our little one...

Well, here we are...less than 24 hours until I get induced. We're SO excited and can't believe that tomorrow morning...bright and early...we will be heading to the hospital!! It doesn't hardly seems possible. Having this baby is such a surreal thing for us. What a miracle and blessing from God!! I just can't wait to meet him/ will be the greatest moment in the world! Hopefully today goes by quickly so tomorrow will be here even faster....hehe:)

Online Casinos

I coming to realize that online casinos are becoming more and more popular among people these days. I can see why though...I mean how convenient to be able to gamble form the comfort of your own home?!? I think it's great that so many people are taking advantage of this opportunity. Now we don't have to go to those crowded casinos where every machine is taken. We can sit at our computer and have more fun playing the games we love!! The only thing with the internet is that it would take forever to find the games that you want to play. That's where comes into play. They make it possible for people to find safe and secure online casinos through use of their ranking system. It's so easy to find the games that you like with their nicely laid out site. It's so easy to use, so you don't waste any time browsing the web for hours on end looking for the online gambling destination that suits you and your taste best. If you'd like, take a look at their site and see what you think. I have a feeling you'll like what they have to offer, as it's very easy to use and navigate!!

Grocery Shopping

I'm not really looking forward to it...but Scott and I really need to go and get some groceries tonight. I'm getting induced on Thursday morning, which means that only leaves us today and tomorrow to get them. I am thinking tonight would be a good night, just because tomorrow night I think we will be getting things ready to go to the hospital. Hopefully it doesn't take us too long I'd really just like to take some time and relax before the BIG day.:)


I'd love to plan a vacation to Orlando sometime soon. I just love going there. There's so much to do and it's also very relaxing!! I'm think that when I finally do get around to planning a little get away, I am going to use to help me in finding the best prices on orlando vacation rentals, flights and even car rentals. It would be nice to get all of this taken care of before we go once we're there we can just enjoy ourselves and the many things that they offer vacationers like entertainment, dining, nightlife and so much more!! If you're interested in planning a trip to Orlando...take a look at next time.

Cell Phones

What would we do without cell phones?!? I often ask myself this question and don't know what we did without them in the past. For my husband and I we use them as our main phone line and it works out pretty well. Most everyone is with our same carrier so pretty much every call we make is free! I can't imagine what it would be like without our cell phones. I have mine wherever I go!!

It's CoLd!!

Lately it's seemed colder in our house than it has outside!! I don't know why this is, but it's really not fun to be in a house that's so cold all the time. I haven't really wanted to turn on the heat all that much, because I know that outside it's not that cold...upper 60's I think. This morning I finally gave in and turned on the heat. Once it warmed up I turned it back off I could tell I was then going to get way too warm. It feels perfect in here now that the cold is gone. Hopefully it stays that way?!

Attention All Candy Lovers!

I don't know about you...but my favorite part about Halloween is all the yummy candy!! I typically don't partake in eating too much of it...especially because it's so expensive to buy!! I did happen to stumble across a great site that though, It's a bulk candy store online that offers all of the candy that so many adore!! The best part is that they offer it at very affordable prices and it allows me to shop from the comfort of my own home! I was amazed at all they had to offer. It doesn't matter if you're looking for vintage candies, or more traditional candy bars like the Butterfinger...they have it all!! I strongly urge any candy lover out there to check out this site today!

Halloween Costumes

I love this time of year. I mean, I'm not the type of person that really gets into Halloween or anything...but it does bring back some fun memories of trick or treating with my family. The one thing I always remember having to do was bundling up really warm. During this time of year here where we gets VERY cold, especially at night. We would have to wear our winter jackets and sometimes snowpants under our costume. It made for a pretty bulky look...but we managed and stayed warm.haha

Have you ever heard of Hoodia before? I hadn't until just recently having seen a show on television about this specific product. At first I wasn't sure what I though, but as I learned more, I honestly thought it was a good product for those looking to trim down and lose some weight. What I liked best about this product is that it's 100% pure all organic material from the Kalahari Desert's Kooroo Region in South Africa and that there are no unhealthy side effects like there are with other types of diet pills you see on television. I definitely think that those two points alone make this product a good idea and worth trying. For those looking to lose weight, and do so in a healthy way, I definitely think that this could be the answer. For the results that you get and the amount of pills you get for your money, it's definitely a good value and something worth looking into. Overall I really think that this is a great product, not only because it's affordable, but most importantly because it's natural and healthy.

Nice Day

It sure turned out to be another beautiful day out there!! I kind of thought it looked like it was going to be cold and cloudy this morning...but now it is warming up and the sun is shining. I really enjoy days like this...especially when we near the months that here in the midwest typically mean snow is on it's way. I like to take advantage of every minute I can enjoying this type of weather, because once the snow hits, it's usually here to stay for months and months!

Dating Sites

I must admit that I used to be a bit skeptical of all the online dating sites out there. I just wasn't sure that it was a way that people should be meeting other people. However, in the past couple of years I've known a number of people who've taken part in these types of sites. Some have had good experiences and others have had not so good experiences. From what I've been told though, overall it's a terrific way to meet people and even form relationships with them. I now am more supportive of this idea of finding an online dating site for those who choose to do it, and think it's great that they are able to find love in new ways...thanks to the great technology that we have nowadays. One site that I recently learned of, that I may share with some of my friends interested in this online dating thing is This seems to be a really great site because they are 100% free and simply want to help you find that special someone. If you're interested in trying out a dating site, or looking for a new one...this may be a good one to start with.


What a great day to be posting. I hadn't had the chance to sit down at the computer much today...but boy am I glad that I did. I often try and make some money online through posting for companies like PPP. I really enjoy days like this when there are a variety of posts to choose from. I like to choose posts that reflect the kind of person that I am the the things I am interested in. It's fun to make money and review the things that you like to talk about.

Police Gear

Growing up I always thought it was cool to have a Dad that was a police officer...and still do! He was involved in all kinds of things with his of which was a tacttical type of team. I always thought it was neat that he was so I feel police officers and those involved on these types of teams have to be! It was really neat when he'd be getting ready to go to work, because he would transform from just being my dad to my dad in a uniform. I don't know if any one else can relate to this...but I always thought this was so cool. His police gear was always just so fascinating to my brothers and I. I recently came across a great site today that sells new police gear and it made me reminisce about this. They offer a wide selection of police gear at great prices. If you're in need of finding something like 5.11 Tactical Pants for instance, please check out their site today.

What a busy day

Do you ever have those kinds of days when you have so much to do that you hardly find a moment to sit down and rest. I am having one of those days today and it's a bit stressful. As much as I know I need to find time to rest, especially with being due with this baby any day now...I can't help but make sure that I get all of the bills done and the chores done around the house. I did manage to take a minute and eat some lunch...but tonight I'm really going to need to make sure that I sit down and relax for a bit. I don't want to lose all of my energy before the baby even arrives.

It's sad, but it seems today the word "cancer" is heard way too much!! I remember my mom telling me once that several years ago you barely ever heard the word. If you did, it was known as the "big C" and many thought it was a death sentence. Now we hear it more and more, but with a much more positive outlook. There has been so much done in the medical field to find cures and treatments for different kinds of cancers. It's amazing that so many people are fighting this and moving on with their lives cancer free!! I just think it's wonderful that no matter if you have Mesothelioma cancer, breast cancer, or something else...the future is much brighter now.


Ever since we moved into our new house, Scott and I have lots of ideas of the things we could as far as home improvement projects. We know that it will be many, many years before we are able to do everything...but it's still fun to discuss and talk about every once in a while. We want to do so many things, ranging from smaller things like getting some more contemporary bedroom furniture to some bigger things like siding our house one day!! I guess it will all take time, and that's ok. It's fun to have a house with potential to do the things we want at some point.

Credit Card Comparison

Credit Cards are a great thing for many people to have...especially in a case of an emergency. However, each credit card is different. They all have that fine print that you must read very carefully. Unfortunately, many people fail to do this. They take those offers that they get in the mail and sign up for credit card after credit card. I for one, would encourage anyone looking for a credit card that's right for them, maybe Airline Credit Cards for instance, to look at They are a long running site for online credit card comparison. You will be able to search for cards, compare them and even apply for the ones that are right for you. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in doing, please visit their site today!

Love to read blogs

I don't know about you, but I just love finding new blogs out there on the web to read. So many people blog these days, and it's just so interesting to me to read about the things they write about. It's fun because there's really no one blog that is like any other. It's fun to read those blogs that are more personal too...not just the blogs that only talk about one topic or only do sponsored posts. I enjoy variety and hearing all that people have to say.:)


I really don't want to, but I need to do some more cleaning around the house. Knowing that the baby could come at any time, it really has me wanting to make sure that everything is perfectly clean. I think part of it is just my nesting stage that I'm going through, but I also just like having everything in order. Maybe I'll get Scott to help me with some of this when he gets home from work later. He's always great to help with whatever I need.:) is a great site for those looking for radiators. They are the leading source online for automotive radiators, and have an inventory of over 80,000 parts!! They keep a full stock of Honda and Acura radiators, which is great for those who are needing something quickly. I was not only impressed with the radiators that they had to offer, like an Accord Radiator, but also the site that they have available for their customers. They have many articles and information for people who are looking to learn more about radiators and all that goes along with them. Great for those people who may not be expert mechanics. Take a look at their site and see what you think. I think you'll be very impressed with their wide-selection and great prices.

Needing to relax

I've been so busy with working online and getting things done around the house that I haven't even had the chance to relax and enjoy any of my weekend so far. I think I may have to set aside some time to do this everyone needs some time to take it easy during the week...right!?! I always feel bad sitting around, but I know that I should get my rest now before the baby comes.

Wedding Today

My parents are headed to a wedding this afternoon. I was thinking what a beautiful Fall day it is to have a wedding. The sun is shining and the leaves are turning pretty!! I'm sure it will make for some really great outdoor pictures for the bride and groom. Where we live you never know what the weather will be like this time of year, so I'm glad that they got such a nice day for their wedding! I'm sure they're very pleased.:)

I want a pool...

I don't know about you, but I have always thought it would be pretty cool to have a pool in our yard!! The only problem with that, is that living in the midwest, we don't have many months where a pool would get much use. Those who live in the south though probably would get a lot of use out of having their own personal pool. I know if I lived near Mesa Arizona I would definitely be looking into having a pool built for me by Cameo Pools and their arizona swimming pool contractors. They are the oldest pool company in Mesa, having been around for 30 years. They are known for the quality of pools that they build, and the customer service that they offer. These are things that I would look for when buying a about you? If so, look into them on their site today.

Great Grandparents

It's so cool that soon my parents will become grandparents for the first time and second time. I say that because both my brother's wife and I are expecting our first babies. I love seeing how excited my parents are about becoming grandparents...they can't wait!! I know they'll be such wonderful grandparents...I can't wait for our little one's to meet them:)

For sure only 5 days left...

It's pretty exciting to think that I only have 5 days left for sure until the birth of our little one. I mean, technically my due date is tomorrow...but if the baby does not come by Thursday, then I will be induced. Although this wasn't the way I had planned for things to go...I am really excited that next weekend we will have our little one here at home with us. I CAN'T wait!! It's so exciting. I hope if the baby doesn't come by then that this week goes by super quick.haha

Lapband System

I'm sure by now, many people have heard of Journey Lite. They are a well-known network of surgical facilities that have high skilled professionals who are experienced when it comes to bariatric surgery. They want to give their patients the most safe and least invasive weight-loss surgery out there. That's why many turn to them for the lapband system procedure. This is where surgeons place an inflatable adjustable gastric band around the upper portion of the stomach, helping patients to feel more full and eat less. You can see how this would be a great way to lose weight. If you or someone you know is considering this procedure, check into Journey Lite today.

Cell Phones

I can't imagine where we'd be with out our cell phones, can you?!? I mean, I know we went years and years without them....but now having them I'm not sure how people ever did it. They are so convenient and make it so easy to reach people and for people to reach you. I also am comforted in having mine with me all the time for emergency situations. I know when my husband I had some car troubles this summer, we were sure glad we had our cell phone to call for help. I don't know why, I was just thinking about this today and am so thankful for this invention.

Going through the water

Boy, do we go through the water in a week. We usually go through more than 48 bottles of water in less than two weeks. I think part of it is me being pregnant and making sure that I'm constantly drinking water throughout the day...but I still can't believe how much water we go through!! I've never really sat down and figured it out...but I have a feeling that buying all of that bottled water sure adds up. I don't think i want to know how much we spend on it each month..haha.:)

Beauty School

Are you interested in going to beauty school?? If so, then you should really check into Regency. From what I here, they are the fastest growing beauty school in the country, with almost 30 campuses currently across nine different states!! They've been around for more than 50 years and really know what it takes to get into this profession!! They're not like any of the other beauty schools that I've ever come across. Learn more about their unique approach to cosmetology and the hands-on experience that they offer. You will be thrilled to find all that they have to offer you, as well as their placement ability after you are done with school. Take a look and see what you think...I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Squirrel Food

I was looking out the window today and was noticing that we need to get some more squirrel food. I didn't want to put any out too early in the week, because these squirrels can eat all the corn in a day!! However, I feel bad when I see the squirrels come by throughout the day and see that there is no corn for them. I suppose we better get some more so they start coming back around. It's sure fun to watch them. Nature is so cool!

Halloween Movies

My husband and I were flipping through the channels last night and we noticed all the Halloween movies are starting to be played. We aren't a couple who gets into Halloween much, and we definitely don't get into these spooky, scary Halloween movies. We just kept flipping by them...and were kind of annoyed with all of the channels that were playing them. It made it difficult to find a show that was worth watching. I suppose over the next few days there will be even more movies and shows like this. Probably a good time of year to pull out some of those movies that we still haven't seen in our DVD collection.

Martin Worldwide

Martin Worldwide is a leader in the direct marketing industry. They offer great mailing list products and the opportunity to buy lists, as well as a well-known product, ResponseCom. This is a product that was created after decades of tracking and compiling data to make sure that it was the best product for it's clients.

From what I've learned about ResponseCom so far, I am very impressed with all they have to offer. Clients who use it are getting higher response rates, more business opportunities and profitability. Learn more about this product and Martin Worldwide on their site today.

Bill Time

As much as I dread doing bill's, I'm thinking I should get them done this the baby could literally come any day now!! I don't have many to do, but it's still important that I get it done before the baby comes. It will be one less thing that I have to worry about then and it will be done and taken care of! I think I may do that this afternoon if I find the time...either that, or tomorrow afternoon. We'll see how the day goes.

Scott's Working....Again

Although Scott really enjoys this time of year because he gets to work in the field and make some great bonuses before the end of the year comes around...I always feel bad for him when he has to work 6 and 7 days a week. He handles it pretty well though, and is actually getting used to the early hours and the long weeks. I just feel bad and wish that he had more time to spend at home during this Fall season. Oh well I guess....the sooner they get out there and get things done, the sooner the busy season will be over and he can spend lots of time at home again.

Gold Coins

Through Monex Deposit Company, people can buy gold coins, silver coins and other precious metals for investment purposes. Monex has been around for over 30 years and is known for their speedy delivery of the items you purchase. They will deliver it to a safe storage facility, or to you personally. Either way, you know you're dealing with the best when you choose Monex Deposit Company. I say this because they are America's gold, silver and precious metals investment leader. If you'd like to learn more about Monex Deposit Company and how you can go about getting your own precious metals and coins...I urge you to take a look at their site today.

November Babies??

It's kind of weird, because both my sister-in-law and I thought we would probably be having October babies. Her baby is due today and mine is due tomorrow. I guess we kind of thought our babies could be born after their due date, but never considered the fact that they could be November babies instead. That's fine if they's just weird to think about. I'm just excited that the time is nearing and soon we'll have our babies here with us!!

Due Dates

It's crazy to think that the time has come for these babies in our family to be born. My sister-in-law is actually due today and my due date is tomorrow. I can't believe how quickly time has gone. Although we both kind of figured that we would go past our due dates seeing how this is our first pregnancy, we were both still hopeful that we might possibly go on our due dates. It's not looking like that's going to happen...but who knows...the babies could come any time now. We'll just have to wait and see when they're ready.

Truck Bedliner

If you have a truck and are interested in protecting it...then you should look into getting a STK Line-A-Bed truck bedliner. These things are amazing!! They help to protect your truck with their skid resistant technology. They're really easy to use also because they are a "drop in" design that fits perfectly. So what are you waiting for? Check out these durable, high density bedliners today!! Take a look at for all your needs when it comes to the STK Line-A-Bed won't be sorry you did, because here is where you'll find the best deal and the best service!

Where does the day go?

My days just fly by!! It seems that by the time I get the cleaning and work that I need get done on the computer...It's just about time for Scott to come home from work. I don't know where the hours go!! It just baffles my mind how quickly it goes. I never feel like there is enough time in a day to get everything done. I am comforted to know though that I'm not the only one that feels this way. It seems that there are so many people out there who are so busy and just want time to slow down a bit.

My Ring

When I was about 8 1/2 months pregnant, my fingers began to swell a bit. Because of this, I have not been able to wear my wedding ring. Although I know it's only temporary...I just hate not having it on. It's weird, but I don't feel right now wearing it. My hubby always has his on, and I miss not being able to wear mine too. My mom had a ring that was big enough to fit on her middle finger, so she has been letting me wear that through out these past weeks so that I don't feel absolutely naked without a ring on my finger. I'm glad she had this ring...because I couldn't imagine not wearing anything on that finger.


It seems that summer time can have it's pros and cons. I mean, who doesn't love the warm weather right?!? Well, the warm weather is nice...but not so nice for some of those appliances in our homes that work so hard to keep things Kenmore Refrigerators and air conditioners. These types of appliances work overtime trying to keep things cool when the temperatures get so warm during the summer months. This in fact is the reason why many refrigerators give out and need to be replaced. A fridge is a necessity, and something that needs to be replaced quickly if it happens to break down. I for one am comforted to know that Krillion's Localization Engine makes it easy for us to find a fridge quickly and locally. If you are in need of finding a high price item like this....please check out their site today.

Junk Mail!!

I don't know about you, but having an e-mail has it's cons. I mean, don't get me wrong...I can't imagine not having an e-mail. It's the absolute best way to stay in touch with people these days!! The thing I don't like about them is that e-mail accounts always seem to get taken over by junk mail...mine do anyways. I can go to bed one night having all my messages read, and then in the morning...I might have 20 e-mails that are all junk!! I try and block them and have them filtered to the trash...but it seems that there's always more to come!! GRRR...

Getting Older

I remember when I was young every birthday was a huge thing to me!! I mean, it was great to be a year older each year!! It seems like once you hit 18 though, birthdays seem to become less and less important. In fact, sometimes I have to think about how old I's not even that easy to remember.haha It's not that I don't enjoy my birthday's, I guess it's just not the same as when you're young. Can anyone else relate to this??

World Series

I don't know about you, but it's been the talk of the month with the World Series upon us. My husband is a sports nut!! He would love to get some tickets to see a game in the World Series, but we have found that world series tickets to a game this big are sold out right away!! I know it kind of bummed him it would have been a lot of fun to see it in person and not on the television, but we didn't know where to go to get tickets. Well, that is until now. Now we know that is offering the world's largest selection of premium seating to sold out events like the World Series. I am going to look further into this and so should you!!


Not long ago we got a squirrel feeder for a tree in our front yard. I enjoy watching squirrels outside so much, that I thought this would be a fun way to attract more to our yard. I do really like it, but I never realized how much they eat!! Wow!!! We had three things of corn and within a couple weeks the corn was all gone!! We haven't put another one out for a while, because the corn disappears more and more quickly. I'm sure we will soon though, as I'm missing not seeing the squirrels come around as often.


Staying at home has really caused me to lose track of the days. I find that every day feels the same to I am typically cleaning and working on the computer. The only time that a day feels different is when Scott is home on the weekends and we have some time to spend together. Otherwise, every day feels like a Monday. However, I was thinking today about how today is Fridays. I get very excited when Friday comes, because that means the weekend is around the corner...and you guessed it...I get to spend time with my hubby!! I just love Fridays!


Lowery's has offices in the UK, Northhampton and also Kissimmee, Florida. They are known for their sales and rental of property in Florida. What they noticed about Florida, was that there were a lot of sites out there about the things it offered, but almost too many for someone to get a really good idea of the things they could do there. That's why Lowery's created a site that brought all of the important information for tourists together on one site. Now you just have to go to for all of your needs when it comes to looking for a Villa in Orlando. Learn more by visiting their site today!


I've really enjoyed getting into this whole blogging thing. At first I just started it as a way to get my thoughts out there about what was going on in my life. After a while, I began to feel that I could do much more with my blog and started to do some reviews and things on products that I thought were important. My blog is not only a way for me to keep people involved in what's going on in my life, but it's also been a great source of extra cash flow for us. Here and there I'm able to make some money doing some advertising for those companies that want honest reviews. I've really enjoyed this and hope to continue for a very long time!

Staying Home

I don't know about you, but I always knew from the time I was younger that I wanted to stay home with my children when they were young. I know there are differing opinions on this subject, but for me it was not a question. Even if I had to make sacrifices and not have everything that I would like...I was going to stay home with my kids. Well, the time has come when my hubby and I are expecting our first baby. And, of course, I am choosing to stay home.:) We have made it work and I'm so happy that he supports and agrees with me staying home. We both feel strongly that a child is so impressionable at the young ages especially, and that we want to be the ones raising them and teaching them...not complete strangers!

Hallandale Beach

If you're looking for a great Condo in Hallandale Beach, then you should definitely check out Beach Club. This is the luxurious condominiums that anyone would love!! It has a great location, right there on the ocean with views that are just amazing overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. They have top of the line amenities and are located close to the Diplomat Resort, Bel Harbour Shops, and a nightlife that many would enjoy. There are actually three luxury condos to choose from here at the Beach Club. Take a look at their site to learn more about each one and see if The Beach Club in Hallandale Beach is something you'd be interested in!!


It's kind of weird how so many of my friends are kind of in the same place I am in life right now. Now that we're all out of college we've all kind of taken the same path. We have found jobs, gotten married...and many of us are now having babies. It's kind of fun to have people who are going through the same things as you are...I've really enjoyed it anyways. I guess that's how it goes though. Most of us go to college, find that perfect someone, get married have a family and find the job that we've always wanted. It's so nice to be living our lives this way...I love it!


Lately it's seemed colder in our house than it has outside!! I don't know why this is, but it's really not fun to be in a house that's so cold all the time. I haven't really wanted to turn on the heat all that much, because I know that outside it's not that cold...upper 60's I think. This morning I finally gave in and turned on the heat. Once it warmed up I turned it back off I could tell I was then going to get way too warm. It feels perfect in here now that the cold is gone. Hopefully it stays that way?!


I have to say one of my all time favorite places to go on vacation is Orlando Florida. Someday my husband and I would really like to take our family there. I told him though, that it's going to be really important that when we do that we make sure to plan everything out. I mean, there are so many Orlando Hotels and so many theme parks...we need to decide what's going to suit our needs and interests best. I think when the time comes to plan a vacation to Orlando again we're going to take advantage of and the discounts they have to offer. If you're headed south as well...make sure to check out this site and see how they can help you save money and plan.

Can't Sleep

I'm sure it's common at the end of pregnancy...but I sure haven't been sleeping well lately. Between the baby's weight pressing on my ribs every way that I lay, and the fact that I'm always getting up to use the seems that I only get about 4-5 hours of sleep a night. I know that in a way this is probably good and helping to prepare me for when the baby arrives. It's just hard because then I feel kind of yucky the next day. I'm trying to take it easy and rest up as much as I can, because I know that I will need my energy here in the next week.

It went great!

When I walked into my doctor's appointment yesterday, I really didn't know what to expect. I due date is Sunday (two days away) and I didn't know what the doctor was going to tell me. I wasn't sure if she'd just have me make another appointment next week...or if she'd tell me it looks like I'm about ready to have this baby. To my surprise...she thought the baby is getting closer and closer to being ready. She said that she doesn't like her patients to go over 41 weeks and if I don't have the baby by next thursday then I'm going in for an induction. Although this isn't really the route that I would choose to go...her reasoning made sense and I'm more than ready to meet this baby. We know everything will go just perfectly.:)

Miami Heat Tickets

My husband just loves sports. In fact, he'd absolutely love to go to a Miami Heat game sometime. The thing's not easy to come by Miami Heat Tickets. It seems that they are always sold out or that they don't have the tickets that we want. Premium Seats USA can help us out though, because they have a huge selection of first-class tickets to sporting events, concerts, theater events and more!! It's nice to know that there is a place to go to get good tickets to the events that we want to go to. I think Miami Heat tickets would be a great birthday gift sometime for him....he'd be thrilled!! If you're in search for some good tickets for an event...take a look at this site and see if has what you're looking for.

What tree is that?

I wish that I knew more about trees and what kinds they were. The reason I say this is because this time of year I can't help but look at the trees that are changing colors. I often wonder what kind of tree they are, because many of them have their own unique look...especially as their leaves begin to change. In our neighborhood it seems that we have a lot of different trees around. Some of them have leaves that are bright red, while others have leaves that are dark read, all yellow, or a mix of all of these colors. I can't say that I really enjoy the winters we have in the midwest here...but I sure do love the beauty of Fall!
