Hotel Reservations

As someone who is at a point in my life when every extra dollar is important to me, and usually goes towards bills or something we need, I like to find deals wherever I can get them. Have you ever been in this situation? I'm sure there are many people out there like me who like to save money when possible. Since my husband and I are currently facing a lot financially with a new addition to our family on the way, as well as the possibility of buying a home, we don't get to go and do much when it comes to vacationing and things like that. When we do finally get the opportunity to take another vacation, I can guarantee that we will still be looking for ways to save money where we can. That's why I'm excited to have found a great site that will allow us to do just that. Hotel Reservations makes it easy for me to compare prices and information on all kinds of places to stay like motels, resorts, vacation rentals, etc. They even have information on flights and car rentals as well!! In looking this site over I was amazed at how competitive their rates were!! The fact that they are so competitive and that I have the opportunity to compare different accommodations is probably my favorite thing about this site. It helps me find a place that is affordable and suits the needs of our family. This site even offers great discounts on world wide destinations too!! That's something I'm going to have to fill my brother in on, now that he's traveling a lot more for business. Planning a vacation can be a stressful time, due to expenses and lack of time...that's why this site is so great! If you're like me and enjoy finding great deals as well as doing things quickly and easily, then I suggest you take a look at Hotel Reservations. It's laid out very nicely, making it extremely user friendly and easy to navigate. Check them out today and see what you think.


Do you have your own business, or want to start up your own business? What about getting your own online store up and running?! If so this sounds like something that interests you, you should definitely check out Ashop Commerce. They provide shopping cart software, making it easy to manage your website and online business from one place. Intrigued at the sounds of this company, I went to their site and checked it out. I was very impressed to see all they had to offer. They truly do make it very easy for people to start up their online stores by use of ecommerce software. For one, it's very easy to use. It's all web based which means there is no hassle with installation. Best of all, it's very affordable!! Now that's something I like to hear. There are also thousands of features to use, which makes it easy to design and make your online store unique and unlike any other. Does this sound like something that you'd be interested in using for your own business? If so, then you should check them out today! They even have a free 10-day trial offer!! So, what do you have to lose? See what you think and visit their site today.


I'm sure many of you have heard of all the ways you can make money online. You probably have even heard one way is to blog for money?!! This is something that I came across at the end of last year, and really think it's a great way to make money. The only problem is, that not all blogging companies are the same. Some make it almost impossible to get opportunities. I recently came across a great site, Smorty, that brings advertisers and bloggers together. The bloggers are paid to write opinions about the sites and products that the Advertisers are promoting, basically they're paid to advertise on blogs. The reason I like Smorty so much is because they send the opportunities right to your account...and the ones they send you, you are able to do. Sometimes with some of the other companies it is difficult to even get an opportunity because there are so many people trying to get the same ones. Other's make it difficult because they post opportunities that you may or may not be able to do. Smorty makes it easy, and that's what I like! Does this sound like something you'd be interested in? If you're interested to get paid to blog, check out smorty today!

Put in an offer...

My husband and I are VERY excited because we put in an offer on a house that we really like here in town. That was the first time that we've actually taken the next step in purchasing a house and we couldn't be happier!! We are supposed to find out today what the seller thinks of our offer so we can go from there. Although Scott and I both really like the house, we have learned that God's plan for our lives is the most important. He knows best, and if this house isn't for us, then that's ok. I mean, we'd be disappointed, but we'd also have the joy in knowing that He has something better for us.:)

Coupon Codes

It seems that with the business of life, most people work out of the home full time. Not only are these people working full-time, but then they have to come home get things done around the house and take care of the daily things that people do. Needless to say, one does not always have time or feel like going out and going shopping after a hard days work. They usually want to find a quiet place to sit and relax and spend time with their families. That is why, online shopping has become so popular. I don't think I know anyone who hasn't taken advantage of all the shopping that can be done online. I know I do it quite often! It's just so easy, convenient, and something you can do from the comfort of your own home. You don't have to get dressed up to go can just sit at your computer and browse through your favorite stores. That's what I like to do, instead of always going to the mall or the stores for things I want and need. In fact, I really like the site,, because they help people like me who shop online save lots of money by using coupon codes!! The deals found here are amazing! I don't know why I didn't ever use coupon codes before?! Lately I like to use Target Coupon Codes, because Target carries a lot of what we need with a new baby coming in a few months. And with a new baby coming, there's lots of things to buy, which means lots of money spent. Every dollar we can save with coupon codes is wonderful! It doesn't matter if Target isn't your favorite store though they have Kohls coupon codes, Best Buy coupon codes...the list goes on. There's like 1000 stores to choose from. Find your favorites and start saving with coupon codes today. This is a paid post.

Set for Saturday

YYYEEAHH!! We just got the e-mail from the realtor saying that we're good to go to look at all four houses on Saturday!! I'm SO excited...buying a house is the biggest thing we've done and it's exciting that we get to get started on this fun journey together!! We can't wait to be in a house that we own and love and that's actually ours!!

Score Summer Program

I'm sure many of you have heard of Score Learning Centers, in fact, if you're a parent like myself, you've probably either had your child involved with Score Learning Centers, or plan to if needed. I've been doing a lot of looking online at these centers, and I must say I am quite amazed. They seem to offer a great learning environment for the children, one where they will show significant academic progress and enjoy what they're doing. I really like Score because they not only offer tutoring for children during the school year, but they have a Summer Program that they offer as well. My kids will be school-age before I know it, and I'm glad that I have Score Learning Centers to turn to if I need it. This is a paid post.

More about the House Hunt

So we're going house hunting this weekend...looking at four different houses in the area. We pretty much know what we want in a house and are hoping to find that in one of these. If we don't, then we'll keep looking, but we're thinking one of these may be the home for us. We'll have to get a better look at them and ask some questions to find out for sure. We're basically looking for something with enough bedrooms/bathrooms and space so that we could stay there for quite some time if we wanted. A big yard, and room for expansion someday is also something we'd like to find. I guess we'll see what they all have to offer and see if any of them are what we're looking for.


When Scott and I moved into the home we're renting now...we needed curtains for a number of different rooms. No we're looking at moving into a bigger house and I'm excited because we'll get to go curtain shopping again. They're so much fun to buy because they add so much to a room. I think I will be looking at Terry's Fabrics when I'm ready to buy more ready made curtains, because their range of products is amazing! They have everything from fabrics to poles to tracks for the curtains. Take a look and see what you think. This is a paid post.

Another House

We're really excited because we found another house that we'd like to take a look at this weekend with the realtor. Everything we're looking at has the qualities in a house that we hopefully we will find one that we like. If not though, that's ok....we don't want to rush into anything. It's a huge purchase and we want to think it completely through and make sure we're getting the house we want.

Terry's Fabrics

I am someone who is really picky about the bedding that we get for our beds. I like to have our bed comfortable and have nice bedding to give the room a calm and relaxing feeling. I also like to do the same for our other beds in the house, as company uses these and it's nice for them to have nice bedding on the bed as well.
Since I am so picky up the kinds of bedding I get for each bed, I was excited to come across Terry's Fabrics website. They offer a variety of bedding, everything from bedspreads to duvet covers. You're sure to find something for each bed in your house here at this site. I am being paid for this post.

Loving the Weather

I am absolutely loving the weather outside today. If I wasn't so busy working in the house, I would find something to do outdoors and enjoy the day. It's a nice change from yesterday, which was pretty much gloomy and rainy much of the day. I guess we need rain once in a while, but I much rather prefer these days!

Burn Notice

One of the hardest things about summer time is that many of my favorite shows end until next season. Although this is understandable, I always like to have a favorite show to watch during the week and am always keeping my eye out for new shows beginning that my husband and I can enjoy together. We both really like action and something that will keep us thinking...that's why USA Network's Burn Notice, the new television show airing June 28 really caught my attention. It's about a man, Michael Weston, who gets terminated or "burned" from his CIA operative job. He is confused as to why this is happening, or even who is behind it and wants to find out. Since he can't go to the people he used to trust, he needs to stay out of the lime light and figure out a different way to learn more about his burn notice. It's seems like one of those television shows that will keep us on the edge of our seats which is exactly what I like! It's hard to say what I would do if I were in Michael Weston's position. What a hard place to be in, not knowing how to find answers or what tools to utilize. I think that I would definitely try to lay low and not draw too much attention to myself. I would only put myself in the company of others whom I know can be trusted also. Since he is going back to his hometown of Miami, I would hope that there would be someone who he could trust and confide in to help him. What would you do if you were a spy and in this type of situation?? Do you like these types of television shows that have you wondering and waiting for whatever is going to happen next? If so, then check out Burn Notice June 28th.


Yesterday while my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, we went to a town about an hour away to eat at the Olive Garden, one of the best absolute favorite. After we were done eating, we decided to go to the Target across the street. We used to have a Target near where we lived before, but ever since we moved and don't have one so close, we never are able to go there. We had fun browsing through all the baby stuff (as we will be needing much of it in the coming months) and I also took a look at their maternity clothes. Maternity clothes are not always the easiest thing to find, because their kind of made to fit can be hard to find something specific to your size at the time. I was lucky and found a couple of things that I had been wanting...and at Target's prices...well you can't get better than that.

Math Tutors

Do you have children who need more help in specific subjects in school? Most likely, most of us parents out there have children who could use some tutoring our guidance when it comes to different subjects in school. Maybe they need Math Tutors or a reading tutor is needed?? If you're sitting there saying, "yes, that sounds like my situation" then check out Score learning centers. They have a great program set up to help children ages 4 to 14 make progress in school through an environment that is fun and and meaningful to them. Look into them today and see what you think. This is a paid post.

I love Surprises

My husband told me last night that he has some big surprise for me for our anniversary. I'm not sure what he has up his sleeve, but I'm excited!! I just hope he gets off work early enough so that we have time to enjoy whatever it is he has planned. I guess we'll just have to see...I love surprises though!!

Summer Camps

School may be out for the summer, but that doesn't mean you can't find academic help for your kids. Learning does not have stop, and help can be given to those students who may struggle in particular areas of school. Score Learning Centers actually offers Summer Camps with all kinds of tutoring and help available. You'll be amazed at how much progress your child makes in just a short amount of time. Are you a parent like myself and want your children to succeed in school? If so, then check into Score Learning Centers today. This is a paid post.

Time Flies

I can't believe how quickly time flies!! Today is my husband and my wedding anniversary!! I can't believe how quickly the years go by and how wonderful they have been so far!! Some people say the first few years of marriage are the most difficult, but we really haven't felt that way at all. We've loved every minute of our marriage and can't wait for many more years to come! :) It's been fun getting settled in our life together and enjoying it together.

Innovative Tutor

There are times in a child's life where help is needed in different academic areas. Score learning centers is a great program for children in this situation, ages 4 to 14. My kids will be school age before I know it, and I would definitely turn to Score Learning Centers for academic help. They offer an Innovative Tutor environment, that makes learning fun and meaningful for the children. I think these are the two most important aspects of learning if you really want to get kids to show an interest in what they're learning about. I am a possible future Score parent and I recommend that others check out this program as well. It helps to benefit students and their parents. This is a paid post.

Busy Weekend

We had such a great weekend. Scott got to go golfing with my dad and brother and they had a great time. We also got to attend a wedding of a good friend of mine, which was absolutely beautiful!! It was a fun filled weekend, because it was also father's day and we got to spend quality time with each of our dad's which was nice.

PPP Gets 7 Million in Funding

I was wondering what kind of promotion PayPerPost would be running next, and I never even come close to what they actually do because the opportunities they give us posties are so fantastic!! Today they just released a press release, which can be found at the end of this post, telling Posties the great news that they just received 7 Million dollars in funding!! That is a ton of money!! Hopefully they use it to continue to spread the word about their great company, bring in more advertisers, and continue to give Posties high paying opportunities!

To celebrate this great news, they are having a 7 day promotion!! During the next seven days, PPP will be releasing 7K worth of opportunities, all being $10.77, $70, or $700!! Isn't that amazing!! I would love to be able to get all of these opportunities, as the money would sure be nice! The great thing is, that I can, because Posties will be able to take each opportunity, no matter if they already took one or not! How great is that???!!! Also, these opps will not be segmented, so they're open to all of us!! I think that's the best news of all.

I am just always amazed at what PPP comes up with. Lately they've been doing so many wonderful things with PPP. Like this promotion, and the new blogger directory to help with PPP Direct! Thanks PPP for all you continue to do!!

Press Release:
The PayPerPost Revolution Accelerates, Sponsored
Blogging Marketplace Secures $7 Million Series B

Draper Fisher Jurvetson leads round and joins Board of Directors

ORLANDO, FL – (June 12, 2007) – PayPerPost, the leading marketplace for advertisers to reach bloggers and other consumer content creators, today announced it has completed a $7 million second round investment led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson, an investor in the company's Series A and one of the world’s leading high-technology venture capital firms. The financing brings the total amount of capital raised by PayPerPost to over $10 million, giving the company considerable resources for further development as the industry’s leading Consumer Generated Advertising marketplace. Additional participants in the round include existing investors Inflexion Partners and Village Ventures as well as new investor DFJ Gotham. With this investment, DFJ Managing Director Josh Stein also joins PayPerPost’s Board of Directors.

“PayPerPost created this exciting new advertising space and has established itself as the industry leader,” said Ted Murphy, chief executive officer of PayPerPost. “Although we’ve only used a portion of our first round capital, this added support from investors unlocks significant growth potential. Our content creator and advertiser ROI metrics clearly demonstrate the upside for PayPerPost’s model. We intend to use this capital to build the infrastructure, visibility and professional expertise necessary to reach and retain a greater network of advertisers and content creators than ever before.”

Since its founding in June of 2006, PayPerPost has signed more than 6,500 advertisers to its groundbreaking service, which has enabled Consumer Content Creators to be compensated for their efforts discussing specific companies, products or services via blogs, videos or other media. The content creators are required to disclose relationships with advertisers on their blog, providing transparency for the end reader. Over 125,000 Internet postings, most in the form of blogs, have already earned money for their creators through PayPerPost’s innovative marketplace. PayPerPost recently released PayPerPost Direct, a disruptive new service that allows advertisers to contract and negotiate directly with individual bloggers they identify through a safe, managed system.

“PayPerPost has laid a strong foundation for the future,” noted Tim Draper, founder and managing director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. “It continues to attract a critical mass of participants from both the advertising and blogging communities. Analogous to Overture’s sponsored search model, we believe PayPerPost’s business model holds disruptive potential and will enable the company to thrive in the evolving paid-content arena.”

To mark the $7 million dollar funding, PayPerPost has launched a new website detailing the company’s service offering at Bloggers and advertisers can easily sign up at the site and begin leveraging the self service marketplace.

Beautiful Weather

Today is another beautiful day. I find it difficult to spend much time outdoors to enjoy it though, as I am always busy working on the computer or around the house. I'm definitely going to have to make more of an effort to get out there, before it rains again for days on end.:) I may even have to take my laptop out there so that I'm sure to enjoy this beautiful weather.

Score Learning Centers

My children will be 4 years old before I know it and I'm really excited that there's a program like Score Learning centers out there for children of this age all the way to age 14. They are a great program helping children make academic progress through a great tutoring environment, with Math Tutors, etc.!! I definitely think that I will be a future Score parent when my children reach the age that's appropriate for them, because I like what this program promotes and is doing for young children. As a teacher myself, I know the importance of teaching children in a way that is meaningful and interesting to them and that's what I like about Score Learning. Their motto is basically just that, "When they love to learn, they'll learn". If you're interested in becoming a Score parent as well, check out their site and see what you think.

A fun date!!

My hubby is the greatest! He always finds ways to spend time with me, even when we're busy with work and life in general.

Staph Infection in Jail

There were headlines today talking about Paris Hilton and the jail she is staying in. Apparently there are some staph infections going around there. Inside Edition even covered the story and talked about staph infections and MRSA which is the type of staph bacteria that can lead to infection.

American Material Handling

In browsing the web I came across a great site that I wanted to share with everyone. They distribute a large variety of stocking items such as pallet racks, shelving, conveyors, hand trucks, and lockers. Not only do they sell these things, but you can find both new and used material handling products like these on this site. Could you use a new scissor lift, or how about a cabinet? If so, then I strongly suggest you check this site out. It's very user-friendly and easy to navigate, so you're sure to find whatever it is you're looking for with ease. You can even order right there online. This is a paid post.

I love having the company during the I'm really looking forward to it.

New Astronomy Gadget

I don't know about you, but I've always been fascinated with the stars and all of God's creation! Astronomy is just such a fascinating thing, because there are so many things to see and discover. Since this is something that I've always enjoyed...I was excited to see that Meade has a new astronomy gadget out. The meade my sky allows the user to identify 30K objects in the sky by simply clicking a button. It's said to be a fun, hand-held guide to the sky and all that it contains! It's kind of like the Celestron SkyScout, but has a full-color LCD screen! I thought that was pretty cool myself. This is really a cool gadget. If you're interested, take a look at the site,! They have telescopes, binoculars and so much more to help you learn more about, and appreciate astronomy and our universe! This is a paid post.

Already Sunday!

I can't believe it's already sunday and another week is about to begin. It seems like the weekends are far too short...because the days are always so full of things that have to get done. When I was teaching I remember the weeks going by quickly because I was either working or planning all the time. Although I thought this would change now that I'm at really hasn't. The days still fly by, and so do the weeks and weekends. I guess we just need to enjoy every bit of it.:)

Hotel Reservations

I grew up going on family vacations, and it's something I want to do with my family as well. Vacations can be so much fun, and so many wonderful memories can be made. The one thing I do remember when I was young though, was how long my mom had to plan for the family vacations that we would go on. She would come home from work and go through all of her motel books and maps, taking many notes about the things she was finding. She would even spend weekends doing this. She put so much time into these great vacations and I can't thank her enough. Thanks to all of her wonderful planning, my family and I really got to see some amazing places while we were growing up!! The one thing I would tell her if she ever plans another big vacation, is to check out They are an amazing website that offers everything that she would need to plan a vacation.

Grass is Growing

When we first moved into our home, the yard had been dug up due to some construction work that was being done. Soon after the snow was gone, the grass seed was planted. At first we weren't seeing much grass...but as it rains more and more each day...the grass is sure coming in nicely. There are still some spots that need to grow some more...but the grass makes it look like a completely different yard!! I love it!!:)

Date Night

Since Scott works a lot...we don't get to go on dates as much as we would like anymore. That's why yesterday was so nice. Scott got home a little early from work and we were able to go catch a movie and grab a bite to eat. It's so important to make time for each other and go on dates, even after you're married. We had such a nice time.:)
