United States Gold Bureau

Have you ever thought about investing with silver or gold? If so, you may want to check out United States Gold Bureau. I have been searching through their site and have been impressed with what I have found. They make it easy to purchase silver, gold and other precious metals and coins. They even arrange for immediate delivery and safe storage. With the world demand exceeding is a great time to buy silver...but I'd love to buy gold coins too.

With the state our economy is in, have you considered investing? I guess that's the main reason we've been talking about it lately. I'm not sure if we will...but if we do...we'll definitely be looking further into US Gold Bureau!

Gold Bullion

The United States Gold Bureau makes it possible (and easy) to purchase silver, gold and other precious metals. I have been looking into this quite some time and have finally talked my husband to check into it with me. We're both very impressed with this company especially and like how they deliver immediately or have it arranged for safe storage. Now is a great time to buy silver, but I'd even be happy to buy gold bullion too. I'm not sure what we'll do yet, but it's definitely something we're considering....especially with the state our economy is in. How about you? Something you've considered?

Saturday, December 11, 2010 ~ Christmas Shopping Made Easy!

With Christmas just around the corner many of us may be looking to pick up those last few gifts, or even a little something for ourselves to wear at the next holiday party. Whatever the reason, one place you can count on to provide a great selection of everything from shoes and handbags to clothing and houswares is!

I have browsed the Zappos website several times before, and currently have my eye on a great pair of Dr Martens shoes! I don't often go out and buy myself apparel items, especially this time of year with so many other people to buy for...however, I have lots of family get-togethers over the holidays and want to look my best. I'm not sure if I'll go with boots or shoes yet, but either way...knowing their Dr Martens lets me know they'll be of the highest quality and something that will last for a very long time.

If you're finishing up your Christmas shopping, definitely check out! You won't be sorry you did.

Buy Gold Coins

Watching our economy has brought some concern for me over the past couple of years. The stock market has been wavering with uncertainty. People have lost as much as one third of their investments. The United States Gold Bureau can assist a person with the purchase of silver, gold and other precious metals. You can buy gold coins or gold in an ingot form. The ingot form is a pure bullion cast that is made into a convenient size and shape. For centuries gold has been known for being a great way to protect one's wealth and purchasing power. Browse their website and learn more about it.

**I was paid for this post. My honest opinion was given and not swayed in any way.**

Windy Days

We have had some very nice weather lately but the wind has been quite strong. I know it won't be long and winter will be here but I prefer a bit warmer temperatures. I am just glad that it isn't snowing because of the strong winds we have had. We have had some terrible blizzards in the past. I don't know if there is a perfect climate but if there is I would like to find it.


Well, the elections are finished for now. Whether you are pleased with the results or not is another story. They will be many changes coming in the near future. Congressmen and women will be leaving Washington and others will take their place. Some think that Nancy Pelosi should just retire but I really don't think she will. What are your thoughts on all of the changes coming?

United States Gold Bureau

The United States Gold Bureau is a great place to go if you want to purchase silver, gold bars or other precious metals and coins. With the economy the way it is...there are probably many people considering investing like this. I know we have! That's why I have started to learn more about them, and so far am impressed with what I'm learning. They arrange for immediate personal delivery or storage of your purchase. Now is the time to buy silver bullion if you want, that's why we're talking about it even more. With the world demand for it exceeding annual product, it's important to decide soon. I'm thinking we'll probably look into a little more and then make a decision.

3 years old

Kaelyn turns 3 on Monday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, and now here she is...such a big girl! She's really looking forward to being 3...she's already telling people about it. I love each new stage, but at the same time, wish that time would slow down some. These years just go by too quickly!


Halloween is just around the corner, can you believe it? Kaelyn is going to be Dorothy and Kaden is going to be a lion. We thought it would be fun to go with the Wizard of Oz theme...hopefully the kids enjoy their costumes as much as we do. :) I know Kaelyn's really excited about trick-or-treating. I love that part too, however, I'd rather people give something other than candy. Maybe stickers or something. We'll see.

United States Gold Bureau

The United States Gold Bureau makes it easy for people to purchase silver, gold coins and other precious metals and coins. They even make it possible for you to receive the product or have it delivered somewhere to store it. I thought that was really great! We've been talking off and on about purchasing silver, and once we found out that now is the time to do it with the world demand exceeding annual production...we may just have to move forward with it. I'd like to learn more about the United States Gold Bureau, but so far it sounds like something we're probably interested in. I'd love to hear any experiences you've had with them.

Fast Week

So far this week has been busy, busy. Yesterday Kaelyn had her first dentist appointment, so we were out of town for that a lot of the day. Today we have a showing, tomorrow we have a showing and an appointment...I think this week will go by very quickly. That's a good thing though, as long as the weekend doesn't go this fast we'll be good. :)

Selling our house

Our house is for sale and it's odd how the showings have been going. There will be a couple weeks where we don't have any interest, and then other weeks where everyone wants to see the house and even have some offers. I'm not complaining, I just think it's odd how it's been going. We would love to sell the house before winter, but know that whatever happens is the way it's supposed to be. We're excited to see the plan God has for us.

United States Gold Bureau

Anyone who has looked into investing and purchasing gold coin before, has probably heard of the United States Gold Bureau. Are you one of them? It's pretty impressive for those who have never checked out their website. I've been able to learn a great deal and am now actually considering buying silver bullion. It's the best time to do so I from what I read, because world demand exceeds annual production. It's very exciting and something I'm looking forward to exploring with my husband more. I have a feeling we'll be doing business through them at some point though. Either way, I'm happy to pass along the word.

Sunday School

Kaelyn started going to the 'big kids' sunday school this year. So far she is absolutely loving it. She has always had a love for reading and learning, as well as an outgoing this is something I knew she'd enjoy. I was right! They learn different Bible lessons, sing songs, and probably her favorite art activities. It's fun to hear all about her morning when we come in to pick her up. Kaden seems to be enjoying the nursery too!


In our household we have the habit of making snacky type foods late. I know it's not ideal, or probably the most healthy, but it's mainly because it's the first time during the day when we actually have time. Otherwise it seems like we're always going, going, going. Tonight it's banana bread muffins, and last week it was cookies. Usually Scott makes it which I love. He's such a great husband.

United States Gold Bureau

Have you ever thought about buy gold bullion, silver or other precious metals and coins? I really never thought about it much until I came across the United States Gold Bureau. From what I've read, I've learned a great deal about them and am impressed with how easy they make it for people to purchase metals and coins. They even arrange for personal delivery or storage which is great too. It might be worth checking them out if you are interested in learning more too. You'll find that their site is very helping and may even learn that silver is the best choice right now. The World demand for it is higher than annual if you're interested, I'd check into it soon.

Beautiful Fall

We have had such a beautiful Fall so far. It began a little chilly and I was thinking winter would come early, but then all of a sudden we got summer-type weather with temps in the 80's! That's so great here in the midwest and we've been soaking it all in. Soon I'm sure the snow will be falling, so we try and enjoy the warmth while it's here. I don't mind winter, but I much prefer warm weather without all the layers and coats.

When will our house sell??

So our house has been on the market for almost 5 months now, we've had three horrible offers, and no good ones. We have lowered our asking price as low as we can in order to give us a little wiggle room. We are wondering when the right offer is going to come to allow us to move.

DePuy Orthapaedics Recall

I usually keep up on the news, but missed this and was wondering if you had too. Did you know that the in August of this year, DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. announced a recall of 93,000 hip replacement systems? This was due to a high number of people experiencing pain and swelling really severe that a second hip replacement surgery actually became necessary. Pretty serious stuff, huh?! I was surprised to hear this, but am happy that the people affected can turn to O’Hanlon, McCollum & Demerath. Their attorneys really understand that hip injuries may not be your fault – and possibly due to a defective DePuy Hip Implant. It's definitely worth looking into the DePuy Hip Replacement lawsuit more, as they are very experienced in handling things like this.

Great Kids

I'm so blessed to have such great kids. They make my life so easy, between going down for nap and going to bed at night, they never complain. It's so easy and I'm not afraid to go anywhere with them. I love my kids and can't wait to have more in the future. Family is the best, isn't it?! I just love being a dad...the best thing in the whole world.

Fun Time of Year

This marks the beginning of many birthdays in our family. First it's my twin brother and I, then a few days later my sister-in-law, then a few days later Kaelyn, then our nephew, then our son, then our other nephew, and last but certainly not mom. It's a busy time of year, but also a very fun one. It's neat having so many Fall/Winter birthdays so close together. That just means more time to spend with family. I love it!

United States Gold Bureau

With the economy the way it is, I hear more and more people talking about investing. It got me thinking more about it which led me to the United States Gold Bureau. You can purchase silver, gold or other precious metals and coins for immediate personal delivery. They will also arrange for it to be shipped to a safe place of storage. It sounds very easy and convenient. I haven't actually worked with them yet, but soon I'd like to. Now I just need to decide which to I buy gold bullion or silver. I guess silver is supposed to be the best to buy right now with the world demand exceeding annual production. We'll have to see I guess.


Isn't it funny that as you get older you seem to forget and think less about your own birthdays?! I was talking with my mom recently and she reminded me that it was my birthday this week. I guess now that I have a family of my own I pay more attention to when my hubby's and kids' birthdays are than my own. Who needs to keep track of the numbers anyways...especially as we get older, right?! It's more fun for me to plan their birthdays than get excited about my own.

Great Weekend

It seems like, anymore, the weekends fly by way too fast. With having company over on Saturday and Church on Sunday it makes for a filled weekend. I can't complain because it was still a great weekend.

Get Degrees Online

I love technology for so many reason, but more than anything, I think it's so great that because of the Internet we can now take college courses online. I recently learned that now people can ever earn a college degree online while serving our country. Whether a person wants to advance in their military career, or prepare for their exit....a college degree is so important.

Does this sound like something that might interest you? At you can learn about on-campus and online college credit and degree programs tailored to U.S. Military personnel and their families. What's great, is that education benefits earned from being in the military can be used for tuition, and some schools even offer discounts for active duty and veterans.

If you or someone you know is in the military, it's definitely worth checking this out. I had never heard about it before, but think it sounds like a great option to get online military degrees.

Scott's Birthday

Tomorrow is Scott's birthday. He decided to take the day off so we could spend the day together as a family. We have Kaden's 9 month Drs appointment in the afternoon, but other than that I hope we can relax and enjoy each other's company. I think we're all going to take naps too. It's been a very busy week that has left us all very tired. I hope whatever we do, Scott enjoys his birthday. He deserves it!


As August comes to an end I can't help but get anxious at the thought of the holidays being just around the corner. I love that time of year, but it's also very busy and stressful. There's lots of things to do between now and then. I have birthdays to plan, gifts to buy, and other commitments. I hope the time doesn't go by too quickly, as I think it would stress me out even more.

Buying Gold

With the world demand for silver bullion exceeding annual production, many people are looking into purchasing. We are one of those people. We have been talking about it more and more and have even looked into the United States Gold Bureau. We were quite impressed with all they have to offer and how easy they make it to purchase silver, gold bullion and other precious metals. They even arrange for immediate personal delivery or convenient and safe storage. Either way, I'm thinking this is something we'll be doing in the near future. I've known people in the past who have done this and are very happy they did.

Good Sleepers

Kaelyn loves bedtime. Ever since she was a baby she has been a great sleeper. Now that she's older she especially loves story time. I hope Kaden grows up to be a great sleeper like her. He's pretty good right now, but doesn't sleep quite as soundly. I think teething bothers him a maybe once that passes?! I guess we'll have to see. For the time though, I can't complain. We're usually in bed by 10:30 and get to sleep til' 7. Not too bad, right?!

House on the market

Our house is on the market which means we are always doing our best to keep it clean. It's a harder job than one might think with two little ones around. I love the fact that we're taking the next step to hopefully selling and finding a different home, but at the same time I'm not a huge fan of the showings. It's difficult for me to get the kids out of the house last minute and make sure everything is clean and ready to go. With two little ones messing up everything I makes my job twice as hard. Oh well. I keep telling myself it will all be worth it in the end.

United States Gold Bureau

Did you know that the world demand for silver bullion now exceeds annual production? It actually has for 20 years or so, which is why now is definitely the time to buy if you're thinking about it. Scott and I have talked about it off and on, but after hearing this we're considering it even more. I went on and found information about the United States Gold Bureau and all they have to offer. I was quite impressed with how simple they make the whole process. You can easily purchase silver, gold or other precious metals and coins for immediate personal delivery or arrange for convenient and safe storage. Be sure to check them out if you're ever in need of more information about purchasing coins and metals.

Scott's Bday

Scott's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. He talked about taking the day off, but I don't know what we're going to do exactly. Kaden has his 9 month dr appt, and sometime that weekend we have to get his 9 month pics taken too. It would be fun to do something special for him, but he never seems to have anything in mind. I think he'd love to go to a movie, so I was think we may do that if someone will watch the kids. I guess we'll have to see as the time gets closer.

Other website

If you've never checked out my other blog, you really should. I work on a Mom Blog which features lots of great product reviews and giveaways with so many wonderful family friendly companies. I love sharing our experiences with others so that they have an honest mom's perspective of some of the newest gear out there on the market today. If you'd like to learn more about my other site, visit my sidebar and click on A mom's Balancing Act.

United States Gold Bureau

If you've ever looked into purchasing metals or coins, you might know something about the United States Gold Bureau?! They make it simple for you to purchase silver, gold coins and other precious metals and coins by arranging for immediate personal delivery or arrange for convenient and safe storage. Scott and I have been considering this for quite some time, and now learning that the world demand for silver exceeds annual production...we figure now might be the time to do it. If we decide to, we'll definitely be looking further into the United States Gold Bureau. Have you ever looked into purchasing coins? What are your thoughts?


I absolutely love my job as a stay at home mom and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I can't tell you how honored I am to be able to stay home with my kids and watch them as they grow and learn. I would hate to miss all their firsts and am so happy to be the one that gets to see them. I am so thankful for a hubby that realizes the importance and supports me in staying home with them. He's such a great husband and dad. We are very blessed!

Never enough time!

It seems like there's never enough time in a day. No matter how much time I think I'm going to have to do something, I just don't. I always say there will be tomorrow, but them 'tomorrow' fills up with something else. I have to face the fact that it's probably always gonna be like that and just do what I can. I want to take this time while my kids are young and really enjoy every moment that I'm home with them.

United States Gold Bureau

Have you ever looked into purchasing silver, buy gold coins or other precious metals? If so, you may have come across the United States Gold Bureau. They make it easy to purchase the metals or coins you're looking for and will arrange to have it immediately delivered to you or stored at an independent bank or depository. From what I've learned, it sounds like a great thing and something I'm definitely considering. If I purchase silver, I'm thinking now might be the time to do it since world demand now exceeds annual production. We'll have to see what hubby says...but there's definitely the possibility that we'll look into this more.


The mosquitoes are absolutely awful! They sprayed the town last night, but then it rained right after. That defeated the purpose and tonight they were biting Kaelyn like crazy at the park. They're not just bad in the grass, but also the roads and everywhere. It makes it miserable to be outside which stinks since summer is coming to an end already. I am hoping they get better so we can enjoy the outdoors again.

Golf Outing

I had the idea that we were going to have this weekend to relax, and then remembered tonight that we have a golf outting with Scott's family. It will be fun, but is a bummer I didn't remember until just now. I won't be golfing, as I need to watch the kids...but I know Scott and my dad will. They will have a lot of fun. My mom, myself and the kidsw ill go to the dinner though. It will be fun to see everyone I think.

Regency Beauty Schools

I've known several people who have decided to pursue cosmetology. I think it would be a fun career. If I ever went to school for this, I would probably look into Regency. Founded more than 50 years ago in Minneapolis, they are the fastest growing beauty school in the country. They have expanded to include schools on 30 campuses, like hair schools in Wichita, and continue to grow each year!

What's so interesting is their approach to teaching. They offer campuses that actually mirror salons so that students get real hands on experience. I think this is terrific and what great practice. It's also nice for the public because they get great service at discounted prices. Sounds like a really neat set up they have going on.

Chore Chart

Kaelyn is at an age where she's becoming more independent and able to help with things around the house. She is slowly taking on little jobs to helps us with and loves it. She enjoys making her bed, picking up her toys, helping unload the dishwasher and more. I have decided to work on making her a chore chart. Just something she can use to see how she's helping out. She's very excited about it. Now if only I could find the time to finish it. :)

Fair Time

We had such a nice time last night. It's fair weekend in our town, so we took the kids to see the animals like we do every year. Kaden wasn't too sure about it all...but as always, Kaelyn loved it! She really enjoys animals of all kinds...especially the pigs. I think the highlight though, was getting to do the pony ride. Her Aunt Kim walked around with her and she loved it. I think we'll make it a family tradition to do this every year. Such a fun time!

On Your Way To Retirement!

Everyday, on my way to work I listen to the satellite radio in my truck. It seems like, everyday, I hear an advertisement on how it is such a great time to invest in gold. The US Gold Bureau is making it easy for those who would like to invest in gold, silver and other precious metals and coins. The easiest way to buy gold eagle coins is to get in contact with the US Gold Bureau. They have a dedicated staff to help you find the best investment opportunity for you! What a great way to start a new investment opportunity, then today!

What's for supper?!

What should we have for supper? That is the question of almost every single day. I know it's only morning, but the days go by so quickly, and before we know it 6:00 will roll around and we're all going to be hungry. Why does coming up with ideas have to be so tough?! I think I may go ahead and throw something in the crockpot. It's been a while since we had something warm with the heat that will be nice for a change.

Time Flies

Can you believe that July is already coming to an end?! Wow...where does the time go. I feel like summer should just be starting and here it is almost over already. Yikes! I just wish time would slow down a little bit. WIth as fast as it's going, my kids' birthdays are going to be here before we know it. I love it...but it's kind of sad to think that they're getting so big already.

Saturday, July 24, 2010


If you've ever considered investing in gold, you have probably heard of the United States Gold Bureau. Through them, you can purchase silver, gold and other precious metals and coins for immediate personal delivery. If you like, you can also arrange for convenient and safe storage at an independent bank as well.

Scott and I have been talking about buy gold bullion, and the more we read about it, the better it sounds. It's a great time to buy silver and gold right now because the World demand for it exceeds annual production and has for the past 20 years! We are strongly considering it and will looking into a bit further before making a final decision.

What about you? Have you ever purchase silver or gold for investment purposes? Who did you go through and what was your experience like?

What a wonderful day!

It has been almost 2 weeks since we last had a nice sunny day, like today. Over the past 2 weeks it has been a constant rain for a couple days and sunshine for a day or two. This has made it very difficult for me to do my job. It has been great to finally get some work down and make this summer better!

Gold Bullion

Have you ever heard of gold exchange traded funds? Well, soon they will be hitting the Thailand stock market. The Capital Market Supervisory Board made this possible. They are in charge looking after the rulemaking for the Thai capital market and have agreed to permit two different kinds of ETFs. I was recently given the opportunity to learn more about this and actually learned a great deal about how to buy gold bullion and why. If you'd like to learn more about this subject, you can visit the US Gold Bureau, there's really a lot of great information there and it's quite interesting.

Fun weekend

I'm really looking forward to this weekend. We're taking a little vacation up north so the kids can go swimming in an indoor waterpark. We've never taken Kaelyn to a motel, so I think she'll really have a lot of fun. It's been a while since we've gotten out and done anything so I'm really excited. It's been so cold outside that we've been stuck indoors and have a bit of cabin fever. Hopefully I"ll have lots of pics to share with you when I get back.

Time Flies

I can't believe our little boy is already 2 months old! Where does the time go? I thought it went fast with our daughter, but I think it's going even faster the second time around. It's kind of sad when you think about it, because they're only little for such a short time. I guess that's why we take so many pictures so that we always have these times and memories to cherish. Before we know it he'll be two like our daughter is...crazy.

Thursday, January 7, 2010


My hubby is pretty good about buying jewelry. He often surprises me and finds just the perfect item. Most recently he came home with beautiful diamond hoop earrings. I absolutely love them. He was saying that next he'd love to get me some sapphire earrings which I think would be really nice too. I love that he's so thoughtful like that. I was doing a little looking of my own and came across Holsted Jewelers.

They provide exclusively designed jewelry, gifts and accessories to millions of customers. They are known for their high standards, quality and service. I am so glad to have come across their company. I love that they offer fashionable jewelry that is unique. If I end up getting something from them, I know I won't see every woman I walk by with the same earrings. I also like the fact that their jewelry is affordable, something I'm sure many of us can appreciate during this time of economic hardship.

Snow Storm

Wow! The weather is bad out there. Schools and business all around were canceling today. This is the second or third large snow storm we've gotten in the past month or so. It really puts a damper on people's plans to go places, especially work and school. It's also very dangerous to drive in. Thankfully hubby was able to get off work early and is now home safe and sound. I don't like him out in the bad weather, so I am very thankful he has a job where he can leave early if he needs to. Hopefully tomorrow will be nicer, but we'll just have to see. Sometimes the day after the storm is just as bad with all the snow blowing and drifting.

Stay At Home Mom

We've sure been enjoying the newest addition to our family. He is such a joy. I am so happy to have the opportunity to be home with Kaden and Kaelyn every day. What a blessing it is to be able to watch them as they grow and change right before my eyes. I enjoy getting to see all of their firsts and teach them things along the way. Being a stay at home mom is the most rewarding job I could ever have or will ever have. It's also the most important. It's a decision that Scott and I made well before we even had kids, and for that I'm very thankful.

Planning a Family Vacation

Now that we have two children, we definitely look for places that offer a Kid friendly hotel when planning a vacation. I know it's a little early, but with this terrible winter weather we've been having, my hubby and I find ourselves dreaming of, and planning a family vacation already. We heard some good things about the Karisma Hotels located on the white-sand beaches of the Mexican Riviera Maya and are interested in learning more. From what I understand they have a new gourmet-inclusive concept which is great for those that like food. They also have terrific service and a lot of amenities that would really enjoy. I'm looking forward to hopefully going here sometime this if only summer would come more quickly!
