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!?!

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.

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!

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.:)

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!!

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.

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.
