Allegro Medical

Whether it's a breast feeding pillow, a blood pressure monitor or even Pediasure, Allegro Medical has it all...and right online! They are one of the largest independent online retailers for life enhancing products in the US. They have been around for over 12 years and serve over 1 million customers. I was pleased to see that they offer products pertaining to nutritional supplements, exercise equipment and even baby supplies. These are definitely categories that I could find a great deal of items in. Searching through their site I found it to be very easy to use which is one reason I'm passing their site along. Allegro Medical is definitely worth checking out if you'd like to learn more about them and the medical supplies that they offer.

The Doctors

Recently I have been watching a new show called The Doctors. I find it to be very informative and educational. I really like that they have different opinions on it is far more realistic than some of the other shows like this that I've seen before. They talk about all kinds of great topics....whether it be acne treatment, vaccinations, women's health, or men's health...they have it all for every kind of viewer. If you've never seen it, you really should. It's very interesting!

Wednesday Night

I love Wednesday's always a reminder that the weekend is almost here! Only a couple of more days and we'll be celebrating Kaelyn's birthday and having her party. I'm really excited. I'm sure being so busy the weekend will go by quite quickly...but that's ok....every minute of it will be so much fun!! It will be great to get the family together and celebrate her first birthday! I think she'll really enjoy it too.

Black Friday is Coming!

Black Friday is a shopping day I'm really looking forward to. I do every year, but this year more than ever. We have more people to shop for this Christmas season and I need to find the best deals possible! As many people know, this is the day to do that! If you've never been shopping on the Friday after really must! It's the best possible day to get all those great holiday gifts. This year I'm hoping to plan ahead and get all the ads so I know exactly what I'm looking for. I think with all the crowds of's good to know what you want so you can get in and out.

Recently I came across a site,, that makes it possible to see the blackfriday ads. They also offer email alerts to let people know when the ads have been posted. What I like best about this site is that it's a very user friendly site and makes planning easier.

It may sound a bit selfish, but the first thing on my list to find a cheap deal for is a camera. Just yesterday our camera broke and we are desperate to find a new one before the holidays. Since they are quite expensive, we have thought about waiting until Black we know they will have outstanding deals! I'm hoping there will be some Best Buy Deals.

George Foreman Grill Review Coming Soon!

Yeah, I'm so excited!!! A couple of weeks ago I found out that was going to have the opportunity to review a new George Foreman grill!! As a busy stay at home mom...I am happy to have any thing that will make cooking easier and more healthy for my family. I really feel that this grill will do that and am SO excited to get it in the mail. I am not sure which grill it is, but anything made by George Foreman is sure to impress! I would guess it should be coming in the next few days probably. I will let you know what it's like coming from a parent's point of view in a video stay tuned!!

Drug Rehab

Have you ever heard of Promises Treatment Center before? I hadn't until just recently, but was impressed with what they do and wanted to pass it along for others who might be interested! They hep to provide a place for those looking and seeking for sobriety. If you or a loved one is in need of a treatment center that brings hope and healing, and best drug rehab...this is the place to look. They take their position very seriously and only have your best interest in mind. Learn more by visiting their site today! You won't be sorry you did!

Snow on the ground...

I can't believe that there is still snow on the ground!! Yesterday on our way home from my brothers, we ran into quite the little blizzard. It was almost white out conditions in some places, and sleet like you wouldn't believe. It was not nice and I was very relieved to be home. Now, this morning I wake up and find more snow on the ground. It hasn't all melted away yet, but hopefully by the end of the day it will. It can't be winter's not even November!

Giving to Charity

There are a lot of great sites out there these days, and I recently came across one. Have you ever heard of before? I hadn't until just recently, but am so glad I happened to come across it! They are a global partnership between 700 NGO's like Save the Children, Red Cross and many others!! I respect this site and what they do very much. They want to help with animal welfare and human rights....and overall just make the world a better place! Who doesn't want that, right?!? So how do they do this you ask? Well, they allow shoppers online to support their favorite charities. It's really simple when you work with this site, because all you have to do is download the AidMaker software and the rest is automatic. Basically you can support your favorite chairty for free. The retailer of the online store you're shopping at will donate some of what you pay to your charity. Isn't that great? I thought it was very impressive. If you'd like to learn more about them as I did....check out their site today!

Nice Weekend!

We had such a nice weekend. It's not too often that we get the chance to get away and see my brother, so this past weekend we did just that! We decided to take a few days and go down to stay with him. We had a very nice time!! WE were able to hang out and just relax. We also got to eat some really yummy food and do a little shopping too. I'm so glad we were able to go down there. It was nice to see him and get away for a few days. I'm hoping we can do it again soon.

Video Card

My computer is fairly new, but Scott was recently telling me that I really should look into getting a better video card for it. I've been looking around and have found some video cards that I think would work, but really need to ask his he's the technological one in the family. I'm not very informed on all of these computer related things. The one I found is on I'm sure he'll like it. He's loves to shop on this website!!

Visiting My Brother

I'm sure looking forward to this weekend. It's been a while since we got to go anywhere, and this weekend we're going to see my brother! I can't wait. We haven't been down to see him for it will be a lot of fun! He's bene really busy lately and has had a lot going it will be good for him to get his mind off of everything too! I think we'll probably just hang out most of the weekend and catch up. Then next weekend he'll be up to see us for Kaelyn's birthday party! Yeah!

Power Properties

Have you ever heard of Power Properties before? They are a company that I recently learned of. They aim to contribute to the East Dallas Business and Residential Community, and have been for over 13 years! A number of years ago...they actually got over 600 units in Lakewood and East Dallas. They purchased them, renovated them, leased them and managed them. I was impressed with all they do. If you'd like to learn more about them, check out their site today.

Princess Cake

I am REALLY excited for Kaelyn's birthday party. I was most stressed about the cake. I wanted it to be perfect and finally found a picture of one online that I thought would be great! We're going with a "princess" theme kind I wanted the cake to be none other than a Princess crown. I wanted to make sure there would be enough pieces we're going to have a Princess crown on top of a sheet cake. I know it sounds weird...but I think it will turn out really cute!! :)

Car Insurance

We really like the insurance company we work for. We've been told by some people to make sure we're getting the best deal by going to other companies in the area and getting a car insurance quote...however we feel it's more important to like the company you're with and have an agent you trust is working for you. We're very pleased with the coverage we have....and we really like our agent. I'm glad we've found such a great car insurance company.


Kaelyn absolutely loves bathtime. The only problem is, she doesn't have a whole lot of bath toys. With her birthday right around the corner, we thought...what better than to get her some bath toys. I'm really excited that she will finally have something to play with in there. I have a feeling that now it will be even harder to get her out. I know she's getting some other great toys for her birthday as well. It will be fun to see how she reacts to everything.

One Year Older...

Today I am one year older and it's crazy how fast the past year has gone! Isn't it weird to think back over the last year and all that has gone on in a fairly short period of time?? So much has changed in my life over the past year. The most memorable, and happiest day in the past year was definitely the birth of our daughter, Kaelyn!! She is our first child and has brought into our lives so much joy! I am truly blessed!! Last year at this time we were anticipating her arrival...and wondering when she would decide to enter this world and meet us! She decided to hold off until November 1st...but it was all worth the wait just to hold her in our arms!! :)

So far my birthday has started off perfectly....with kisses from my hubby and daughter and a sweet gift they got for me! I've been eying a super cute purse in our local mall for quite some time...and I guess Scott realized that. He surprised me with one of the purses that I have been wanting...what a sweet guy! I'm very luck to have him as my husband!! :) Seeing how my birthday is in the middle of the week like this...Scott had to work. But, I'm still looking forward to a night spent with him and Kaelyn later, just relaxing and enjoying a peaceful evening at home. This is my idea of the perfect birthday!!

Dr Lark

I, like most women, enjoy taking care of my skin. Even at a young age, I still enjoy making sure that my skin is soft and hydrated. I also like to reduce the appearance of any fine lines that are starting to show. I recently learned that the squalane skin care products on can help with all of these things and more. They can truly help to soothe your skin and help it to appear younger. Isn't that great?!? What I was impressed with most about this site was that they have reasonably priced items and automatic order plans. You can check out their skin care products on the Dr. Lark site today for more information.

Shorter days and Colder weather

I don't know about you, but I don't really like when it gets dark out so early. It seems like I wake up in the morning and it's dark out, and then by 6:00 it's dark out. I would rather it be light out for much longer. I miss it...I guess that's summer time though...and now we're nearing winter time. Winter is definitely not one of my favorite times of year....I would much rather have the warm weather. Oh well...I guess that's the way it goes here in the midwest though.

Church in a Movie Theater

Have you ever attended a church service in a movie theater before? I know it sounds a little odd....but I've attended a church service in something like a movie theater before and it was a lot different than your traditional church service, as you can imagine. I would say the biggest difference was simply the setting and environment. Not having your traditional choir area and pulpit were very different, but at the same time really neat too. I guess it's important to remember that it's not necessarily important the building you worship in that's's the fact that you're gathering together and worshiping. I really liked it! How would you like to experience something like this? If should check out the first ever inaugural Theatre Church Conference in Silver Spring, MD. It's on October 22 and 23 and something I'd really like to check out also. If it sounds like something you'd can Find out more by checking out their site today. I wanted to Find out more and did just that and was quite impressed. I thought I'd share the news with others who are avid church goers and interested in learning what it's all about.


George Foreman Grill Review...coming soon!

I am really excited! I recently received news that I will be getting a new George Foreman in the mail to review. It's very exciting, as I've been looking for something that would not only make cooking meals for Kaelyn more convenient and fast, but also that are healthy and not full of fat and grease. George Foreman grills offer these little luxuries and I'm excited to try it out! Stay tuned for a full review and video of what I think!!

Police Gear

When I was growing up...I remember loving the fact that my dad was a police officer! I enjoyed seeing all of the police gear that he had. I always wondered where people get police gear something like the stuff he wore. Now I know that there is a site that offers all kinds of great things for outstanding prices. 511 tactical outdoors is definitely worth looking into if you're interested in finding products like Gear Bags, Polos, Pants, Shorts, and more! In visiting their site I found it to be very user-friendly. With the easy to use side bar linking to all of their categories it didn't take me any time at all to find exactly what it was I needed. I think this is something that everyone would appreciate. If you're looking for tactical gear, is the place to look first! I would have to say my favorite items are the tactical pants and polos, but judege for yourself and check them out today!


Do you ever get tired of computers? I mean, don't get me wrong...I love the technology and convenience of a computer...but today mine has been frustrating me! I have had so many problems getting things to load, as well as having our virus software popping up all the time. I'm going to have to have Scott take a look at it. It's gotten to the point where I'm almost ready to get on our old desktop. I don't have these kinds of problems with that computer.

Check out this NEW blog!

Blogging is the best way to keep family and friends updated on what's going on in our lives. I have been talking with Scott lately about getting another blog started up. One that is used more for the purpose of keeping family informed of what's going on in our lives. He decided that it would be fun to do that....and he wanted to also use it for personal use as far as talking about things that interest him, etc. I thought that would be a couple of months ago he started up a new blog that I think people should check out. It's My Thinking Place. It's in it's starting stages, but I think he'll do a great job with it!

Holsted Jewelers

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love jewelry. I definitely think that this is the best gift for a woman. There is just so many kinds of jewelry and unique pieces to help bring out each person's individual personality. I think it's great. My birthday is coming up, and my hubby was asking me what kind of jewelry I would like. I told him that he should take a look at Holsted Jewelers, as they always have a great selection to choose from. They have costume jewelry, earrings, necklaces, name it!! I really like how you can go right on their site and see all that they have to offer. Their prices are great too! If you've never checked out their site, you'll definitely have to today!

Garage Sale

I was doing really well selling some things on ebay, and making quite a bit of money off of things that we were no longer using. However, over the past week I've been busy with other things and haven't been too good about listing new items. We have a whole storage room full of things to sell and really haven't been very good to continue our selling. I want to start things up again ans it's a really easy way to get some extra money. Scott thinks we should just have a garage sale and sell it all at once...that's definitely an option too.


Each night I sit here with Scott and find myself getting a headache. I started to wonder why, until I realized what we've been watching each night. All this political stuff actually is giving me a headache. I don't know what it is, but it's very irritating. I enjoy hearing the different subjects that each candidate has to discuss, but I'm really tired of hearing the arguing go on between other people who host these news shoes. I don't mind some of it...but it's to the point where all they do is argue back and forth. I have a feeling most people already have made up their decision, and those who haven't will probably watch the debate to help them. I would just rather watch something different one night...I may suggest this to Scott tonight.

Jones Act

Have you ever heard of Mark and Associates, P.C before? Maybe you've heard of their maritime attorney? They are the leading personal injury law firm and they back Senator Barack Obama for supporting the federal law that gives financial compensation to seamen who have been injured while doing their job. Obama supports the Jones Act. Have you ever heard of that before? It's a 1920 law that pays workers benefits that have been hurt while working. Youc an find more information on this topic at and I'm sure if you support Obama you may have heard of this before, but even if you haven't....chances are you still may have.

The Weekend Is Here

I'm really looking forward to the fact that it's Friday tomorrow!! This week just flew by! I can't believe how quickly it has gone. It seems like just yesterday it was Monday...and now we're here with another weekend upon us. I've been looking forward to this particular weekend for quite some time now. A good friend of mine is having a bridal shower on Saturday morning that I plan to attend, and then Saturday evening Scott and I have a banquet to go to for his job. Kaelyn will be staying with my parents while we're gone. It should be a fun weekend...but I'm sure it will go very fast.

Charter Giveaway

We have been using the Charter services for over a year now and really like what they have to offer. We've had no problems with them, and would recommend their company to anyone in search for the thing they have to offer. Not only do they have great services for cable, internet and telephone....they also offer amazing and fun opportunities to win prizes. Recently I read that by going online and ordering a service from them, or just registering you can automatically be entered to win a Honda Civic Hybrid worth $24,000!!! I don't know about you, but that's a car I'd love to have, and one that I'm going to try to win! It has fabric interior and gets up to 45 mpg! I got to thinking that going with Charter not only helps you save on the services they offer, but also can help you save on gas with the possibility of winning a great car like this Honda. If you are someone who lives in an area which offers Charter services, definitely check out the official information on this at Charter's website at . It's a user friendly site, so you'll have no problem getting there and finding exactly what you're looking for!


Migraine Headaches

Migraines are no fun!! I talked with my mom briefly today and she told me that she had a terrible that had her sick to her stomach. From experience this is not a fun situation. Having a severe migraine like this can ruin your whole day. It gets to the point where you just need to lay down and can't do much of anything. I sure feel for my mom and hope that this headache goes away soon.

Journey Lite

Have you or someone you know struggled with weight? I know many people in this same boat, and almost all of them have either had or looked into getting surgery. What kind of surgery? Well, the least invasive, and completely reversible Lap-Band System. This is a band that's placed at the top of the stomach to make you feel more full, hence allowing you to eat less and ultimately lose weight. It's a great option for some people. If you'd like to find out if it's right for you, check into JourneyLite for more information on houston weight loss surgery.


Wow...I think this morning is the coldest it's been so far this Fall season! I woke up and the thermostat said it was 66 degrees in the house. We may have to start turning on the least to keep it at or above 68. It was pretty cold...especially for Kaelyn. It just doesn't seem like it should be that time of year already. Turning on the heat makes me feel like I'm acknowledging that winter is almost here. Oh well...I guess you do what you gotta do, right?!

Benefits of Credit Card Processing For Your Business

Have you stopped to think how many people currently use credit cards in our world today?!? This is probably the most popular form of payment for many people. I know it is for us. It's just so convenient. I especially like to use it when shopping online. Businesses really benefit by offering credit card processing services. They bring buyers like myself to their sites much easier. They not only gain more customers since this is their primary way of paying, but they also save themselves time and money by not having to hassle with late payments or sending out notices requesting payment. They get the payment right away!! This is definitely the way to go, no matter if you sell things that are cheap, or expensive...consumers usually like to use credit cards for almost everything.

Eventful Few Days

We've had an exciting past few days. In a smaller town like ours, when Extreme Makeover Home Edition comes, it's a BIG deal! :) Scott and I have always enjoyed watching it, so to have had the opportunity to go out and see a house that they are building now far from where we live has been pretty neat. We went out three different times. We took pictures of the home they are building as well as with some of the designers. They hand over the keys to the home today to the family at 2PM. I'm sure they will be pretty excited to see all that they have done. It's incredible!

Friday, October 3, 2008


I enjoy the time I get to watch TV at night. It's not too often that I get to sit down and just relax, so when that time comes during the day, I take it!! The only thing I don't enjoy so much are the commercials. Do you ever feel like you are watching more commercials than actual shows?? Some of them are interesting, but when you watch the same acne commercials or same cell phone commercials over and over it can be quite annoying. I know that this is just how the industry's just irritating sometimes.


Thank goodness it's Friday! I don't work out of the home, but Fridays and weekends are still my favorite days of the week. Kaelyn and I both look forward to it now that Scott has a new job and is able to be home with us on the weekends. It's nice to spend time with him. It's also a time when he can spend quality time with Kaelyn while I get things done around the house. I'm so glad that this job allows him to have his weekends free.....I just love it!
