Web Hosting Ratings and Reviews

I have been blogging for quite some time now. I have a few blogs, and I have to say that a couple of them I haven't been the best about posting on a regular basis. I have decided that it's time to find a web hosting service for my two blogs which do not have their own domains...this one included. I don't know if you've realized this with your own websites...but when they have their own domain it seems they are not only more marketable, but can really bring in a better income as well. In comparing with the site that I do have a domain on....I would have to say that hands down that one does much better all around.

In searching, I came across I was impressed with the user-friendliness of their site, and services offered, and am very excited to get started! I found most of what I was looking for in their best budget hosting and best vps hosting sections. How about you? Would you like to find a web hosting service that's dependable? If so, you definitely should check out this site. What do you have to lose? What's great is you can search through reviews and ratings of many different web hosting services to find something that's best for you. It's easy and convenient.

Finding the right web hosting service can be difficult and time consuming, but not with Head over to their site today and begin your search! You won't be sorry you did!

Busy and Fun Weekend

We had a fun, but busy weekend. My brother moved into his condo. It has been a long time coming and he was SO ready to actually have a place to call his own rather than throwing money down the drain each month with rent. I'm so glad he made this transition....his place is perfect for him! It's incredible. We went down this weekend with my parents to help him get moved in and start getting the place in order. In only a couple of days we accomplished quite a bit. I'm happy for him....I'm sure he's enjoying every minute of being in his new place. It's great!

Allegro Medical

In 1996 Allegro Medical was founded. They are now one of the largest and most advanced online retailers of life enhancing products and serve more than 1 million customers! Wow! They have expanded their collection of products offered to include Exercise & Fitness Equipment, Nutritional Dietary Supplements, Maternity/Baby Supplies and Outdoor Gear. Now I don't know about you, but in my opinion that covers a lot of products that many people could use. I have searched through their user friendly website before and found it to be quite easy to find everything I was looking for. That's because of the categories and subcategories available. Whether it's wheeled walkers or something else...they really do have it all! Check out their site today and see what you think.

Reading Blogs

I don't know about you, but one of the things I enjoy most when I get the chance is surfing the web and reading other blogs. Some might say that blogs need to focus on one topic to be worth the time of reading, but I do not agree. In fact, some of my favorite blogs are those that surprise me with the things they talk about. Most of all I enjoy when people speak of things that I can relate, children, parenting, etc. It's fun to read other's experiences and all that they have to say. What about you? What kinds of blogs do you enjoy reading??

Hugs and Kisses

Kaelyn's hugs and kisses are the best! Today I had a terrible I'm pretty sure has been brought on from the stress of all this house stuff. I was pretty miserable, and after taking something in hopes that it would help cease the pain, I decided to lay on the couch while she was playing on the floor. Typically I would take this time to play with her, but with my head pounding, it was much better for me to watch her while laying down for a little while. It was so cute much as I expected her to continue playing with her toys...the instant she saw me lay down on the was almost as if she knew I wasn't feeling well because she came right over, stood by me and gave me one kiss after another while smiling from ear to ear. She was even giving hugs too!! She's such a sweetie. Now, if that doesn't make someone who doesn't feel well smile, I don't know what will?!? :) I can honestly say that this brightened my day and was the beginning of feeling better.

Get Your Education Online

Getting your education online is becoming more and more popular! It's something that allows people to further their education while still being able to keep their full time jobs. I think it's great and know that Scott has even considered it before. Capella University is probably the one I've heard most about. They are a fully accredited online university that is known for their quality education and variety of programs offered. I was very impressed when looking into them further. As I did some searching for Scott, I found a web release discussing their Sunny Andrews Award, given to Jeannie McGuire who received a master's degree in human services from this online degree. It seems that many students and faculty members go on to do great things after Capella!

For some reason today I'm feeling like I definitely did not get enough sleep last night. That makes for a rough beginning to my day. I wish there were more time while Kaelyn naps to sleep a little bit, but that is my only time during the day when I really have the chance to get a lot of things, laundry, etc. Oh well...I'll just make sure to go to bed a bit earlier tonight. Kaelyn goes to sleep at 8, so anytime after that we can go to bed. I also think it would help if we didn't get people calling at 4:30 in the morning and then realizing they have the wrong number....

Great Hubby

I haven't been feeling the best these days and I'm so thankful to have a husband like Scott. He's been so great to help where he can. That includes helping with cleaning, supper and Kaelyn! What a great guy! I'm so blessed to have him as my husband. He's helpful and loving. He comes home from work after a long day and asks me first thing what he can do to help. Now that's a great guy!

Their site offers a wealth of information so you'll be sure to find all the answer to any question you might have about stock options trading.

Scott and I have sure had a lot going on lately. We're in the process of selling our house and buying a new one. We've already found the house we want to buy, but are waiting for the right buyer to come along for ours. I know it won't take our house has a lot to offer...especially for families. It will all happen in God's timing and the way He wants it to which is most important to us. When the timing is right everything will work out and we'll be moved closer to family and Scott's job! YEAH!

A Weekend Away

This weekend we will be quite busy. My younger brother Jake just bought his first we're going to head down and help him move. My parents are down there and have already started helping we'll get there tomorrow and see what else there is to do. I know that moving is always such a big job and the more help the better. I'm looking forward to going down and helping and of course spending time with the family! That's always great too.

The Knot Shop

Weddings can be such a fun thing to plan, but also a bit overwhelming. It's great that there's a place out there online like The Knot Wedding Shop. They have top-quality wedding supplies and novelty items like cameras, ring pillows, personalized bridesmaid gifts and so much more! It's nice that all this can be found in one place. That makes planning much easier and faster! If you're looking to find things at the largest retailer of wedding supplies on the Internet, this is the place for you!! They really do have a lot to offer and have super fast delivery which is important when planning a wedding as well. I'm looking forward to telling anyone I know who is planning a wedding about this. How about you? Pass it on!

It's been a while!

It's definitely been a while since I've been able to post here. Life has been very busy, not giving much time to devote to my blogs. We are currently in the process of selling our home and buying a new one closer to Scott's job. WOW...what a process that has been. I knew it was going to be busy and overwhelming, but it's also very stressful when you're trying to do both things at once. Thankfully our house has been received well, and we're hoping to have an offer on it soon! I will keep everyone posted on that.

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here lately! It's about time though, right?! I was tired of winter weather. I could definitely live with these 80's temps all year long. It's great. Kaelyn is sure loving it too. She's old enough this year to really enjoy the outdoors. We've been outside a lot...and she is busy running all over the place when we do. She also loves bubbles and sidewalk chalk. I'm so glad I'm able to be home with her and experience all these things with her. It's wonderful!

These are a couple of pictures taken of her yesterday as we enjoyed some time outside. :)

Today is a special day. Seven years ago Scott and I began dating. It was so great. We had known each other for years, but one day we just thought "hey, we should go out to eat"....the rest is history. :) Now we've been married for almost 4 years and have a beautiful 1 1/2 year old daughter. I couldn't be happier with my life....the Lord has truly blessed us.

Holsted Jewelers

Jewelry is one thing I never thought about buying online, but in today's world people buy everything online! I have heard great things about Holsted Jewelers and all they have to offer their online customers, and have read great reviews from people who are completely satisfied with the products and service. It definitely has me considering purchasing from them as well. They offer quality products and a service you won't find anywhere else. They offer affordable options for those looking to be fashionable and I think that's probably the best part! What's even better is that they don't offer any of their fashion jewelry in retail stores, so you know that you're getting something unique from anyone else. You should definitely check it out if you enjoy jewelry as much as I do!
