Bose Home Theater

A lot has happened to my husband and I in the past year. We bought a house in August, and then had a baby girl in November. Now we're looking a purchasing a big screen television for our family room. But nothing would complete the home theater experience better than a Bose home theater sound system. So when we get the TV we'll have to get the Bose system to complete it.

For anyone who has ever gotten married, you probably have heard of The Knot before. But what many of you may not have heard of is the latest addition to the site for parents, This is a great site for parents who are looking for real reviews given by parents on a number of different topics like local baby stores, gear and services. Being a new parent, I really appreciate any site that ill help me find the best products, services and activities available in the surrounding area. It's really a very user-friendly site and one that I would recommend any parent take a look at. If you're interested, head over to their site today and check it out for yourself.


My husband is a huge sports nut. I for one could do without ever watching sports. His favorite sport is football, which is the least of my favorite. This time of year it seems that football is all that's ever on at our house. I'm glad that the season will be coming to an end soon, because I'm looking forward to watching something else for a change.

Cold Weather

It sure is cold outside today. We went to church this morning and I was freezing as we walked outside. It's even snowing a little bit which is pretty...but not fun to drive in or be out in. I'm hoping that since winter came quite early this morning that it will end earlier than normal too. We'll see what happens. I'm glad that most days I don't have to be out in it though.

For anyone who's ever planned a wedding know how stressful it can be. I remember planning our wedding, and even though I had a year and a half to do was still a lot of work and very overwhelming at times. That's why it's great that there's a site like out there to help both brides and grooms with their weddings. Here you'll find free planning tools, advice, photos, vendor guides, a registry system and so much more! If you're interested in having a little help planning your big day...definitely give this site a look and see if it's something you're interested in utilizing.

Things to do

This afternoon I get to do two of my least favorite things. I have to get bills done and do our grocery list. I don't really enjoy doing either one very much...but they're things that have to be done. Scott will help me with the grocery list which will be nice. Then he might go and get them later this afternoon. It's nice having a husband that's helpful around the house. It allows me to get things done that I need to before he goes back to work.

Time Off

It's been really nice having Scott home this past week with Kaelyn and I. He doesn't get a lot of time having a week off is sure great!! We've been pretty busy running between different family Christmas gatherings and doing a little shopping with our gift cards, but I still have enjoyed our family time together very much. The sad thing is that it goes much too quickly...I wish that it would have gone slower. Oh well I guess.


I've never actually tried diet pills before, but have heard that many people use them and are happy with the success that they've had in losing weight. It's probably not something that I will do, but I thought it would be fun to look online to see what was out there as far as diet pills are concerned. I searched hoodia, because that is one that I've heard a lot about on TV commercials. From what I can tell it sounds like it could be a good product. I'd have to research it further though to know for sure.

Football Fans

My husband is a huge football fan. In fact, I've never met anyone who enjoys football more!! He would absolutely LOVE to go to the Super Bowl someday. I think it would be fun to buy him tickets to go, but always had a hard time finding tickets because of the demand there is for them. I came across the TicketsNow site which makes it easier to get super bowl tickets. I'm excited, because I might actually be able to get the tickets I've been looking for from this world leading place for premium even tickets. They will have a large supply of super bowl tickets, which is just what I'm looking for. If you're interested in learning more...check out their site today.

Already Thursday

I can't believe that it's already Thursday! This week has just flown by. I was hoping that it would go by slower, because Scott is home this week and off from we've really been enjoying his time off and the time he can spend with Kaelyn and I. He doesn't have to go back to work until the 2nd, so I'm hoping between now and then that the time will go by more slowly.

Christmas with Kaelyn

I've really enjoyed the holidays this year. Having Kaelyn to celebrate Christmas with us has just been wonderful! We had such a wonderful time at my parents house and meeting Kaelyn's new cousin, Emry. Kaelyn and Emry are only 12 days apart and I can't wait until they can play together and enjoy each other's company. Christmas next year will be so much fun too for them! It was great getting to meet Emry and introduce the two babies.

Have you ever heard about the Monex Deposit Company? If so, you probably already know that they are the America's leader when it comes to the investment of gold, silver and other precious metals. They have been around for over 30 years are trusted to help you with all your investment needs. They arrange fro immediate delivery to a storage place like a bank, depository or personal delivery. Right now is definitely the time to invest in silver because the demand for it now exceeds yearly production. If you're interested in making a smart investment move this new year, maybe buy gold perhaps...take a look at Monex first!


I'm just loving having our basement painted now! Every time I walk down there I am just amazed at how much better it looks. Scott even painted the bathroom wall downstairs which looks great too. Our basement was pretty unfinished, but even with a little paint it looks 100 times better! I'm excited to keep working on the basement over the years....adding carpet, furniture and working on the bathroom. It will be fun for the kids one day.

Fun Christmas

Today is the day we get to meet our new nephew! He and Kaelyn are only a couple weeks apart, so I'm really anxious for them to meet as well. They live in Texas, so we weren't able to see him when he was born two months ago until they came up for the Holidays. It should be a fun time getting the babies together! I'm really looking forward to it! What a fun Christmas this will be!!

Done Painting

Scott finally finished painting the basement. It looks SO much better than it did. It just feels so much better having it painted a lighter it opens it up so much more. Now sometime down the road we'll have to get carpet in there. That will pretty much be the finishing touch besides getting furniture someday. It'll make for a nice place for our children to play and watch tv. I'm excited!

Christmas with kaelyn

I'm so excited for Kaelyn to experience her first Christmas...well actually Christmas's as we have many to attend. :) It's going to be such a fun time having her this year with us. I know that all of the family members are happy that she'll be able to experience her first Christmas with them. We have one with Scott's mom's side, one with his dad's side, and two on my parents it should be a fun time! I'm really looking forward to it!!

Tomorrow is the day's already Thursday! That means tomorrow my brother and his wife are coming up to stay for the night with their new son, Emry! We haven't gotten to meet him yet, so we're very excited. I'm anxious to get Kaelyn and Emry together, as they are the first grandchildren in the family and so close in age. I'm sure we will be taking all kinds of pictures this holiday season!! :)

As I get older I appreciate different jewelry and accessories more and more. I like all kinds of things, from rings, to earrings...even raymond weil watches. There's no one thing that I prefer over the other...I think that all kinds of jewelry and accessories are absolutely wonderful. I think I get this from my she is also someone who enjoys jewelry immensely. We both were very happy this Christmas, as our husband gave us beautiful diamond rings. What great guys we have! :)

Skincare Products

Like most other girls out there, I really enjoy pampering myself with great skincare products. One company that I've never tried any products from, but would like to sometime is skinceuticals. I've heard wonderful things about their line of products and their ability to make the skin healthier and more beautiful. If you're interested in having beautiful and healthy skin as well...take a look at this site to learn more.

I love these blogs!

I just love reading other people's blogs. Blogging is something that differs from person to blog is exactly like any other and that's what I like about it. My sister-in-law Stacie is one of those people who always has something interesting to write about. Her blog is not only sponsored posts and ads like many blogs I come's a blog that's dedicated to the things happening in her life as well as those that are important to her. I find myself on Stacie's Blog a lot. It's very interesting and changes daily which is great. I never know what I'm going to find when I enter her blog, as she always has something new to say!! For anyone interested in reading an interesting blog, I recommend checking out hers. She even offers readers the opportunity to get a linkback and review when they do a positive review about her site! That's great for anyone looking to increase their pagerank and simply bring more traffic to their site...who doesn't want that, right?!?!! I know you're going to enjoy her site as much as I do, and that's why I urge you to check out her sister site...Where am I going? Who am I? as well.

Save Money

I'm not someone who is big into cars...but my husband sure is. I think every night he sits down on the computer and goes on different car sites. I think it's great that he has interest like this. I am going to tell him about a site that I came He always appreciates when I share a great site that I've found with him...especially when it deals with auto stuff. This site appears to have high quality brush and grill guards. If you're looking for a grill guard from quality manufacturers like Steelcraft, then you should definitely check out this site and see all that they have to offer. They have guaranteed the lowest prices you may want to take a look for yourself and see what you think.

Where does the time go?

Have you ever just sat and thought about where the years go?!? I was sitting her recently just thinking about how it's nearly 2008 already!! I can't believe how quickly the time goes. I think back to when I was still in elementary school...and it literally feels like it was just yesterday. It's been almost 20 years since I was in early elementary school...however I remember my first day of preschool and my first day of Kindergarten still. I think what got me thinking about all of that was just now having a daughter of my own. I just can't believe where the time has gone. Sometimes I wish it would all just slow down a bit. I want to enjoy every minute with her and don't want it to go as quickly as the years in my life have gone so far!!

All Better

I'm so glad that my hubby is feeling better. He had really hurt his back at work this week. After going to the chiropractor twice now...he seems to be all better! The chiropractor said that is had something to do with his rib. I think he better be careful with all the lifting and things that he does at work. It's not worth hurting himself...that's for sure! I'm just glad he's feeling better. I didn't like seem him in pain and not being able to sleep because of it.

VoIP Call Center Phone Systems

If you're familiar with VoIP Call Center Phone Systems then you'll be happy to know that I recently read a Web Release stating that Xpander Communications now provides a whole new approach to them. I guess it used to be that you would wait for a long time to get the installation of the phone systems in place, and there would often be a lot of labor involved, especially as the business grows and changes. Now, Xpander announces the Nimbus VoIP Call Center Edition. It's helped with cost, by offering a low upfront cost, they get the call center running within a week, and there are no additional costs for moving or adding things. You should definitely looking into Xpander's Nimbus VoIP Call Center Edition today to learn more about how their phone systems could be useful in your company!

Hurt back

I'm feeling kind of bad for my hubby! He was lifting something at work yesterday and seemed to of hurt his back. He said that it's really uncomfortable. It's not a muscle ache...but more of a pinched nerve feeling or like something needs to be realigned. I think we're going to look into getting him an appointment with a chiropractor if it doesn't start feeling better soon. He was very uncomfortable sleeping last night.

Not much longer now...

I'm SOO excited...only a little over a week and we get to meet our nephew for the first time!! I bet he's getting so big, just like Kaelyn. Not only are we excited to meet him, but we're also excited to get he and Kaelyn together so they can meet as well. I want to get tons of pics of them together, because who knows when we'll get them together again. It could be months and months before that happens. I can't wait until each of them are a bit bigger and can play together...that will be great!

Las Vegas

Have you ever been to Las Vegas?? I have when I was younger, and would like to go again they have so much to offer. I think it would be fun just get away for a long weekend or something sometime and head that way. When we do decide to do something like that, I'm going to look into this site that I recently came across, Best of Las Vegas. They make it easy for travelers to find great prices on all kinds of Las Vegas Hotels and Las Vegas Shows.

More Pictures

Browsing through other's blogs...I realized how much I enjoy a blog that is personal and that has lots of pictures on it. I guess I like this because I love looking at pictures. Since this is the type of blog that I enjoy looking at...I thought others out there may enjoy it as well. That's why I'm planning on putting more pictures on some of my posts. I think it makes a blog more interesting and enjoyable to read and look at.

Winter is here to stay...

When it first began to snow here a couple of weeks ago...I was really hoping that there was still a chance that it would melt away and not stick around quite yet. doesn't look like that is going to be happening. I think it's here to stay for a while. I look out my window and all I see is snow! Our yard is piled high with it and so is everyone elses. Oh well I guess. Winter came early this maybe it will end early as well!?! I can't only hope that will be the case.:)


When we were planning our wedding, getting the flowers all figured out and arranged was the hardest part. Flowers are expensive and we wanted to find the best deal. If you're planning a wedding, looking into They may be just what you need to help you have the flowers of your dreams while still being able to afford them...two very important things. This site provides bulk flowers for all occasions. You will find all kinds of flowers...everything ranging from wholesale roses to calla lilies!

New Rug

I am SOO excited! For Christmas I was really wanting this great rug to go under our kitchen table. My parents decided that they'd like to buy me this for Christmas...and it should be coming to my house any day now!! I've been watching the tracking on it...and it's getting closer! I can't wait to see what it looks like in our kitchen.:) At first I was just planning on putting pads on the bottom of the chair legs, but the pads just don't stay on. That's when I decided to get a rug...and I can't wait to get here and in its place!! I will take pics of it when I get it!!

Christmas Cards

Over the past few days I've been trying really hard to get our Christmas cards done and sent out. We have about 50 to do, but it just seems that I never have enough time to just sit down and get them all done. I think I have about half of them left to do...which I guess isn't too bad since it's only the 12th of the month. I just want to get them done soon so everyone gets them by the time Christmas is here!

Orlando, Florida

Orlando is one of my favorite places to go!! They have so much to do there...and it's a great vacation place for all ages. My husband and I really want to make it a point to plan a vacation there with our children some day. When we do, we're going to look into They are a great source for discount tickets for Disney World and a lot of other fun theme parks, Seaworld Tickets, as well as dinner shows and attractions. If you're like me and want to have a fun vacation planned, but also want to save money where you can...this is the place for you. They will help you save money while still getting you the tickets you need to make your vacation very enjoyable! Check them out today and see if this is a site you'd like to learn more about.


When we first brought Kaelyn home...she didn't like bathtime too much. She cried and squirmed all over the place. However, now that we've had more and more opportunities to do bathtime, she has really come to enjoy it a lot. She likes it when we squeeze water from the washcloth over her, and really enjoys it when we let her sit down in the water! She's such a sweetie and we can't wait until she's big enough to actually play in the water. That will be so much fun to watch!

My Little Girl

I can't believe how quickly Kaelyn is growing!! She's like a completely different baby from the day we brought her home from the hospital. She's 6 weeks old tomorrow and is getting so big! Time has just gone by so doesn't seem like it's already been 6 weeks since I had her. She's been such a joy though...and each day is so wonderful. I feel blessed to have her in our lives and couldn't ask for a better little girl! I'm very happy that we made the choice for me to stay home and raise our children. I can't imagine having to go to work and leave our precious little girl under someone else's care. I know many people do that, and there are many wonderful caregivers out there...but I just love being able to be home with her and watch her as she grows!! I wouldn't want to miss out on that for anything!

Wedding Bands

I love jewelry and enjoy receiving new pieces. My husband is so good to give me jewelry as gifts. He did a great job picking out my wedding rings. He recently bought me a new set to wear. He is so loving and giving. It's fun to have something new to wear. I can switch off and wear what ever I'm in the mood to wear. It's great to have choices!

Saturday, December 8, 2007


Scott and I love our sleep number bed, but we've always thought a bed with a foam mattress would be nice too. I think it would be SO comfortable...and may even give us a better nights sleep than we get now. We may have to look into getting something like this and put our bed in another room. Hmm...sounds like I am going to have to talk with Scott and see if this is something he is interested in doing soon. The more I think about it and write about it, the more I want it!

New Car?

Lately Scott has really wanted to look into getting a new vehicle. We have a nice car, but it's seen better days and is definitely going to be rusting more and more with all of this winter weather. He would like to get an SUV, like a Ford Escape or something. We for sure aren't going to do anything until after the first of the year...then we're going to go out and start looking a little more seriously. We'll just have to see what we find.

Friday, December 7, 2007

Wow, I feel like I hardly ever get the chance to blog anymore. I'm so busy with Kaelyn and keeping the house up that I hardly ever have time to get on here and update everyone about what's going on in our lives. Kaelyn has been such a wonderful baby!! She's sleeping through the night and is awake more and more throughout the day. She's a real sweetheart and we're SO enjoying watching her grow and change each day!!

Good Baby

Our little girl is so good!! She's such a good baby. She is starting to get her days and nights on track and has been sleeping through the night. She likes to stay up more during the daytime, which is fun, because we can spend some time together. It's also nice that she's awake some because that way Scott gets to spend time with her when he gets home from work too.

Snowy Roads

Tonight we went out of town. We thought that the roads would be pretty good since the weather was nice today...but some of the roads that aren't driven as much sure weren't too nice after the storm we had this past weekend. There was still snow and ice on them which made driving pretty nervewracking. Scott doesn't get too nervous driving in weather like that, but I sure do. I'm glad we're home now.

Need a Radiator?

I'm sure there are many people out there who are in desperate need of a Ford Radiator. The problem may be that you can't find one or you can't get one at the price you are looking for. If this is the case, I recommend you take a look at This is known as the leading online source for radiators and cooling components. They offer great radiators at very low prices. Not only that, but you will be happy to know that since they are an outlet backed by a network of warehouses, you're products will be available and shipped in a timely manner. You can learn more about and all that they have to offer you by check out their site today!

This Weekend

As long as the weather stays nice this weekend, we're planning on going back to FC and going to church with my parents. It will be nice to see them again as well as going back to the Church that Scott and I both grew up in with our new daughter. There are people there that knew we were expecting and I'm sure they will be anxious to meet Kaelyn. Hopefully the weather cooperates so we can go.:)

Winter Weather

Well, I thought the nasty weather was behind us for a while, but it sounds like it could get kind of gross again starting tomorrow. I'm not wild about this yucky winter's coming a bit earlier this year than I would like. I guess that's ok though. Hopefully that just means that winter will be here sooner and end sooner than it otherwise would have. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Baby Gifts

Do you like to buy baby gifts?? I know I do. I especially like it when I can find something cute and unique. I also enjoy when I can find a variety of things all in one place. Whether I'm looking for a blanket or maybe clothing...I like to go to one place to find it all. That's why I like The Nest Baby Shop. This is a great site where you can find all kinds of cute gifts for babies, their siblings...even moms. Not only that, but many of the items you find on this site have free personalization which is great if you ask me!! And, if you're someone who might be planning a baby shower...this is a great site to find all that you will need...including favors and games. Take a look at this site and find everything you need at a great price!

New Ring

My hubby took me out tonight to get me my Christmas present. He decided to buy me a new ring for Christmas which was so nice!! He's the best!:) I am the type of girl who loves jewelry and he always picks out such nice things. Even though it's my Christmas present I'm very happy that I have it early and can wear it now. I just love it!


Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not the football kind of girl. I mean, I can watch a little here and there...but my husband watches it all the time and I just can't watch it that much. I just don't think it's that fun of a sport to watch. I try and support his interests some and watch it with him every once in a while. He absolutely loves the Vikings, so when they're on he's very zoned in on the television.

Baby Clothes

While I was pregnant my husband really didn't know what colors to get when it came to baby stuff, because we didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl. We tried to stick to the neutral colors like greens and yellows as much as possible. Now, having had our daughter and knowing that we can buy girl colors...her closet quickly went from yellow and green baby clothes to lots and lots of pink and purple!! It's so much fun buying for a baby...especially little there are so many fun accessories out there.

Gift Baskets

With the holiday season just around the corner, Christmas gifts are on my mind. It's that time of year when everyone is doing their Christmas shopping. I'm thinking quality Christmas basketss would be a good thing to get some of my family members. I'm going to take a look at the gift baskets by Gourmet Gift Baskets. They use gourmet food in their baskets. They have wonderful thank you gift baskets, get well gift baskets, even housewarming and sympathy baskets. If you're looking for a great gift for someone this holiday season, or anytime of the year...take a look at the Gourmet Gift Baskets today!

Kaelyn Rolls Over

While we were videoing Kaelyn today on her tummy it was so neat because she rolled over. Scott had never seen her do this before, so it was so neat that she did it while he was around, as well as for the camera. I know our family members will enjoy watching this footage as they had never seen her roll over either. We'll have to take it with us the next time we go to visit.:)

One Month Old

Kaelyn is 1 month old today!! I can't believe that she's already been with us for a month. Time goes by SOOO quickly! We made sure to take some pictures of her and also video her a little bit. It's so exciting to see pictures and see how much she's changed over the past few weeks. Even Scott's parents said how much she's changed just in a week. She's getting so much longer and is filling out a lot more. It's so much fun!!

Doctors Appointments

Having just had a baby I can say that I've spent more time in a hospital and Doctors offices than I ever have at any other point in my life!! Throughout the past 11 months or so, I have gotten to know a lot of Doctors and nurses as well as some of the equipment that they use. I noticed the healthcare cart and other tools that they use on a daily basis in each of their rooms. It's definitely not my favorite place to be, but I've gotten more and more used to going to the doctor's now.

Barn Furniture Mart

My husband and I recently bought a home and there are many rooms that we'd like to do some work on...primarily in our basement. It's pretty unfinished and we'd love to work on the bedroom and family room sometimes soon. I often search the web for great furniture that we may get once we get started, and recently I came across a site that has much of what we're looking for. Barn Furniture Mart has so many different pieces of furniture that suit the style we are going for. They have a wonderful selection of sofas and love seats for our family room as well as bedroom furniture like beds and dressers for the bedroom. I honestly could go on and on about all this site has to offer, but you won't get the full idea of what they all have to offer unless you head over their yourself. So, if you're looking for a great selection of living room furniture, bedroom furniture or something else...check out the Barn Furniture Mart today!! You won't be disappointed!
