Shopping at Dollar Stores

I don't know about you, but with the prices on everything rising, I find myself more and more interested in shopping at dollar stores. They offer many of the items we need at a fraction of the price!! I don't really care what dollar store franchise it is either....all I care is I'm getting the best price. There are many dollar stores in our area, and we typically go to the one that is closest to our house. All of them offer great deals though.

Restful Day

I really need to relax some tomorrow. Although a fun weekend, we sure are tired, as we have been going, going, going since Thursday morning. I'm hoping we get to sleep in a little and have a nice restful day before the next work week begins on Monday. I think Scott would like a day like this too. Hopefully Kaelyn does also. :)

Nikon Deals

Nikon is a very well known brand, as they offer quality products for reasonable prices. If you're someone who enjoys Nikon and the hunting items they provide, you definitely want to check out the awesome Nikon Ultimate Hunter's Package Promo from Nikon Sport Optics, Nikon Pro Gear, and that they have going own.

Fun Weekend

What a great holiday and weekend we had!! We just got back tonight from a very eventful few days. We had three Thanksgivings to attend on Thursday which made for a very fun day and full tummys. :) Then Friday we were up early and did a little shopping. We found a couple of great deals. Friday night Scott took me on a date to one of the best movies we've seen in a long time...Fireproof. If you have not seen it, you really should! Then today we were at my parents and helped them put up their C-mas decorations. We're now at home working on our decorations.

Karisma hotels

A vacation somewhere warm is definitely something I'm thinking about these days. With snow on the ground and the temps bitter cold, I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be. Have you ever heard of the Karisma Hotels before? I came across them wile browsing for a good vacation spot, particularly cancun vacations, and thought they sounded great!

The Karisma hotels is a collection of properties on the beaches of the Mexican Riviera Maya. This resort offers a new Gourmet-Inclusive concept which is great for those who love food like I do!! If you're looking for a vacation that's not only relaxing...but offers amazing accommodations and entertainment then this is the place for you. They'll treat you as good as gold. If you're interested, take a look at their site today and see what you think. I don't think you'll be sorry you did.

Fun Week Ahead

I am sure looking forward to next week already.'s Thanksgiving so we'll have the opportunity to spend some time with each of our families. I'm really excited about that!! Then, Friday of course is only the biggest shopping day of the entire year! YEAH!! Scott and I were enjoying looking at some of the Black Friday ads last night...what great deals. I'm more going to browse...but you never know what deals you can find. Finally...on Saturday I think we're going to go to the Fireproof movie while my parents watch Kaelyn. What a fun week/weekend! I can't wait!!

Movie Night

Can you believe that Scott has never seen the Titanic movie?! In all the time I've known and been married to him, I never knew that he hadn't seen that movie until last weekend. I told him how good it is and that he absolutely has to watch it with me sometime soon! If we can get our work done around the house today, I think we're going to watch it together later tonight. I hope he likes it. I think he will.

Find a Dentist...

If you're looking for the best cosmetic dentist, orthodontist, or periodontist in should take a look at I had never seen their site, but once I did I thought there would be many people who would benefit from checking it out. Their dentists offer dentistry procedures like braces, crowns, bonding, Invisalign, veneers, implants, whitening and more! Their dentists are all trained to do all of these things which I thought was quite impressive. You don't find dentist like this everywhere. It's quite impressive if you ask me. Check out their site for more information on Irvine teeth whitening.

Long Week

I'm so happy it's Friday! I thought at the beginning of the week that the days were going to go by quickly...but it seemed like Friday took forever to get here!! Scott has been working pretty long days, so I'm happy to finally have the weekend here and know that he will be home to help me out with things. The days have been long and exhausting without him home...I think that's why our week felt so long. I'm exhausted and definitely could use some help.


It's been a little while since Scott and I were able to go to a movie. I'm looking forward to next weekend, because it's looking like we'll probably be able to go to the movie Fireproof and have my parents watch Kaelyn. I've read some great reviews on the movie and am really looking forward to watching it finally! I think my parents are going to go to the movie too...just a different time than us so they can babysit. I'm glad they are always willing to watch Kaelyn...they're so good with her and she loves her Grampa and Grammy.

Diet Pills

I have never used diet pills...but I have seen the ads and the products in the stores....and know that there are many options out there for people to chose from. I can only imagine how hard it is to find a diet pill that works. Having so many to choose from, it can't be easy to find the right one very quickly. I'm sure with research and testimonials...the decision becomes easier, but as with anything....having so many choices can be a good and a bad thing. I know I wouldn't even know where to start.

Job Loss

It's so sad to watch the news these days. All you here about is all the jobs the people in our country are losing. I feel for them. We have businesses closing down all around us, and it's sad to hear the situations that so many people are finding themselves in. The big talk right now is that of the auto industry. I think I heard today that they finally decided on a way to help them before they have to close down and layoff more people! Lets hope our economy can get back on track soon.

New Years 2009

Today I got to thinking about the holidays and how they're just around the corner. Isn't that crazy?? I know that New Years is a fun holiday for many people. For those looking for something to do the night of New Years 2009....they should check out I found this site and was impressed with all the information they have to offer those interested. Whether you're looking for toronto nightclubs, a new years festival, or something else....they have all the information you need. You might think with all this information that it would be hard to find what you're looking for...but amazingly it's a very well set up and user friendly. They have easy to find tabs and search bar right there on the home page. I had no problem looking through the site and finding all the New Years information that I was looking for.

The New Year is coming, if you're looking to plan your New Years Party early, is here to help. Take a moment and check out their site for yourself. You won't be sorry you did!! I know I'm not!


I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. It's still a week away, but I always enjoy time spent with family. Scott has to work the Friday after, but I think Kaelyn and I will be shopping with my parents and my brother. The day after thanksgiving is always a great day to find wonderful deals!! Most of all I'm just looking forward to seeing family and relaxing a bit.

More than 50 years ago, Regency was founded. They are currently the fastest growing beauty school in the country! Pretty impressive I'd say. They went from only having two schools in Minnesota to 30 campuses in the country. They actually are planning on continuing to grow over the next year as well. What impressed me so much about Regency is the education they offer. They help to give students the experience needed through hands on classes that mirrors actual salons. If you're looking into cosmetology schools...Regency may be what you're looking for. Take a look at their site today for more information.

Scott and I were recently discussing how nice a vacation would be. We haven't been on a vacation in longer than I can remember. Probably well over two years ago! We'd like to go somewhere warm with plenty of things to do. las vegas is one option, but we're not sure it's a place we want to take Kaelyn. Maybe we should look into something a little more laid back. That sure sounds nice. I look forward to any long as it's time I can spend with family.

Watching Sports

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get tired of watching sports. My husband absolutely loves watching sports of all doesn't matter if it's basketball, golf, name it...he's watching it. He's more than willing to watch things that I every once in a while I let him watch his sports. I just don't get how he can enjoy watching it without falling asleep. It always makes me very sleepy. Maybe that's because I get bored.

Addiction Treatment

Have you ever heard of Promises Treatment Center before? I had, but I didn't realize how much they do for people with addiction problems until I read up more on them by visiting their site. They help to treat a variety of drugs like cocaine, codeine, marijuana, alcohol and methamphetamine. If you're interested in learning more about Promises Treatment Center and their rehab clinics....head over to their site today for more information.

Long and Busy Day

What a day! I'm so tired!! We had kaelyn's one year pics as well as our family pictures taken as you can imagine that was a lot of work to get ready for and done. Thankfully my dad came up to help us out....that was SO nice of him! I appreciate it so much. Then, tonight we got home...had supper and then went to get my hair cut. You could say I'm very happy to be sitting on our comfy couch and enjoying the company of my hubby. It was just a very long and busy though.

Needing a Vacation

I could not believe that it began snowing last week. We were all hopefully that the snow would melt and the temps would warm up...but unfortunately it looks like winter is here and it's here to stay! The snow is still on the ground, and it continues to accumulate each day. I could be wrong, but to me that feels like winter is here. Bummer! It definitely has me wishing that we could look into Orlando vacations or something...but with it being Christmas time money is tight. Maybe this spring or summer. Aww...a vacation sounds wonderful!

Capella University

Capella University is a fully accredited online University that offers many opportunities for people to get their masters and undergraduate degrees!! I have read and researched about them many times and am impressed with all they have to offer those interested in furthering their education. If you'd like to learn more about Capella, you can check out their website and even take a look at their latest Inside Online Education podcast. It features an interview with Beverly Enns who is Capella's faculty chair for reading/literacy there. It's always interesting to see what other people who work there or go there have to say about the school...and that's what these podcasts provide. You can learn more by heading over there today and checking it out! There are many online colleges out there, but this one is one of the best in my opinion!

It's the WEEKEND!

This week just flew by. Just a week ago we were celebrating Kaelyn's first birthday, and now we're already to the weekend again. I wish I could say that we're going to have a relaxing weekend, but we're not really. Yesterday we had Kaelyn's Dr appointment and then had to clean the house before my brother came to stay....then today we have someone coming to hook up a phone line in our house, are hanging lights on the house, and doing laundry. And...tomorrow we have Kaelyn's 1 year pictures to get taken. Weekends are great, but they always go so quickly, especially when we're this busy!

Andy Barkate

Have you ever heard of Andy Barkate before? He is a financial executive with lots an dlots of experience in the financial services industry. He has held many high positions with different noteworthy investment firms. Currently, he is the owner of California Retirement plans LLC and also conducts different retirement planning workshops for different businesses and government entities like Boeing, Shell Oil, NASA and more! I thought with the way our economy is going, and the fear many of us have concerning our retirement...that it would be useful to learn more about him and what he is doing to help! You can check out the website for more information.

Busy, Fun-filled weekend!

Wow...what a busy and fast weekend we had!! Friday was Halloween...which was a lot of fun. We took Kaelyn trick or treating in her little Ladybug costume and had a blast. She enjoyed seeing all the people out and about. Saturday was her FIRST birthday! I can't believe she is already one. Then Sunday was her birthday party, where we celebrated with our parents and siblings. It was a busy time, but a lot of fun! Kaelyn and fun seeing all her Grampas and Grandmas and aunts and uncles! The only thing about such a busy weekend is it goes by FAR too quickly. At least we got lots of pictures to remember it always.

Lasik Procedure

I recently read an article about NASA and the US military and the increase of personnel who are taking advantage of laser vision correction technologies. It helps to improve their job performance as you can imagine! LASIK has helped many people over the last 5 years, and those with NASA and the military have taken advantage of the outstanding results as well! I think it's great. These men and women face physically demanding conditions where good eyesight is very important. With iLasik....there are two lasers used instead of one. It was definitely an interesting article dealing with LASIK technology and made me want to look into it for myself. Hearing how beneficial it's been for so many others has made me want it even more. If you're like me and would like to learn more, you definitely should check out the iLasik site today!! There is a lot of useful LASIK information there that will help you to see if this is a procedure or option that would help you or would be right for you. It's definitely worth taking a look in my opinion. I'm glad I did. I'm going to share this information with anyone looking to increase their vision capabilities!!! It's very exciting to know that it's even moving into the NASA and military fields.


One Year Old

Our little girl is one! I can't believe it. It doesn't seem possible. She's getting to be such a big girl. Before we know it another year will have passed. I hope that it doesn't go by as quickly as this first year has.....I would like to slow down a bit so we can enjoy each moment even longer. Either way we're going to continue to take lots of pictures so we can remember each special day for years to come. That's what I love best about pictures. And digital pictures make it even easier.
