Buying Gold

I'm sure like me, many people have thought about purchasing gold or silver. Coins like this are not only beautiful, but also very valuable. With the economy the way it is, I think it's worth looking into. I've been doing a little research and came across the United States Gold Bureau. They seem like a great company to purchase silver, gold and other precious metals from...as they even arrange for personal delivery or to a safe storage place.

With the world demand for silver exceeding the annual production of silver, it's definitely a great time to be doing this. I'm not sure what we'll decide to do, but it seems like a great possibility. How about you? have you ever considered buy gold bars or silver coins?

New Camera

What kind of camera do you use? We have gone through several cameras over the years, and so far have not really come up with one that we love. We need something that will take great pictures, but isn't really difficult to use. We're by no means photographers and would rather not have to deal with different modes and functions. We know there are some things we need to do, but within reason. I'd love a good quality point and shoot camera, but just don't know where to begin.


This whole selling and buying a home can sure be stressful at times! Wow...I did not realize how much time or money it takes to do it. How do people sell and buy homes all the time. I can't imagine! I'm just looking forward to the day that we sell this wonderful home (I truly do love it and wish we didn't have to move) and are in our new home (wherever that might be). I know it's all in God's hands and that we just need to have Faith and trust in Him. His plan is always the best plan.

Gold Coins

The thought has crossed my mind to purchase gold or silver. It wasn't until recently though, that I began learning more and about it and really becoming interested. With United States Gold Bureau you can purchase silver gold bar and other precious metals and then arrange for it to be delivered right to you or to a safe place of storage. From what I've read, silver is actually a great thing to buy right now. With the world demand exceeding annual production it's wise to look into purchasing right now. I may just have to do that. How about you? Is this something you've ever thought about?

Loving this weather!

The weather has sure been nice lately. Having the cooler temps has really made it a lot more enjoyable to be outside these days. Not having 100 degree temps and all the mosquitoes means that we enjoy the park and walks more. I am hoping this weather lasts a while and the snow and bitter temps hold off. I'd love to enjoy more time outdoors with the kids!

Selling Our home

Wow have we been busy lately. We have our house on the market and have had a lot of showings lately. It's a good thing, just makes it tough to get anything done at home. Also difficult to keep the house perfect every day with two little ones. I'm really lookin gforward to sellin git and moving so we don't have to deal with all this selling stuff. It's no fun. Hopefully a buyer will come sooner than later.

Military Degree

Did you know you can earn a degree while serving our country? I really wasn't aware of this until I learned about MilitaryDegree.com. Whether it's to advance your military career or prepare for an exite, this can be a great thing for people in all walks of life. The online military degrees are tailored to U.S. Military personnel and their families. Education benefits earned from being in the military can be used for tuition, and some schools even offer discounts for active duty and veterans. It actually all sounds very interesting which is why I wanted to pass it along.

Relaxing Weekend

Scott has had one day off this week and has another off tomorrow. You'd think that would make this week go by more quickly, but this week has felt like it's taken forever! We've been so busy and are looking forward to a weekend to enjoy relaxing and spending some time together as a family. Scott's birthday is tomorrow so it will be fun to hang out all day as a family and hopefully just have time to have fun and relax. It's rare that we get a weekend like that, so it will be really nice.

I can't believe how big Kaden is getting. He is almost 9 months old and crawling all over the place. he's pulling up on everything and even trying to let go and stand on his own. I don't know if he'll be an early walker or not, but he sure is trying hard. He is the sweetest little boy and loves to cuddle. I hope as he gets older he stays that way. It's so sweet and I love it!


Having lived in the Midwest my whole life, I have heard of Regency before. Have you? They were founded more than 50 years ago in Minneapolis and are the fastest growing beauty school in the country! They have since expanded from two Minnesota schools in 2002 to almost 30 campuses across nine states. That's pretty impressive if you ask me!

What I find so intriguing about Regency is that they offer a unique approach to cosmetology education by having campuses actually mirror upscale salons to provide a hands on experience for students. This is definitely beneficial and provides high-quality, discounted salon services to the public. Very cool! Check them out if you are interested in pursuing a career in cosmetology. They even have hair schools in Wichita!

Time with family

It's already wednesday and I'm very excited. I don't think we have any plans this weekend to be away from home, we'll hopefully get some time to relax and enjoy the nice weather (if this rain ever stops!). Our house is on the market so we're always trying to keep it tidy and clean...our weekends usually consist of doing that and laundry too. As soon as wed. rolls around I know the weekend will be here soon. I just love my time with family.


Is it weird that I'm already starting to think (and stress a little) about my kids' birthdays and they're still 3 months away?! I think it's coming to mind because I know that this time of year always flies by. Their birthdays are around halloween and thanksgiving...so it's a busy time for everyone. I always want to make sure we see all the family and that the kids have a cake. There's just a lot to consider and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. I'd like to start thinking about it now though, and not hold off until last minute. That would be even worse.

Purchasing Gold Coins

Have you ever considered investing in silver or gold coins? Maybe even other precious metals? I know I have, especially now with the economy the way it is. I have not been quick to do anything yet, as I want to learn more about it. But...from what I've found so far, the United States Gold Bureau would be a great choice to go with. They make it easy to purchase precious metal and coins and even arrange for immediate personal delivery or convenient storage. I'm still looking into it, but am definitely considering it the more I learn....especially knowing that now is the time to do it since the demand for silver exceeds annual production. What about you? Have you ever considered purchasing coins before?

Conversations with Kaelyn

Kaelyn has been talking in sentences since she was around 12 months old. She was any early talker, so I thought for sure she would either hit the 'why stage' early, or not at all. She's nearing three years old now, and all of a sudden is asking us 'why' for everything. I have worked with hundreds of 2 year olds in the past and know this is something many of them do. I was just surprised after all this time that she decided to start doing it now. She is very inquisitive and wants to figure out exactly what we're saying and what it means. I love having conversations with her. So fun!


I love capturing photos of my kids. I think i have my camera on me almost all the time. You just never know when you're going to need it. Lately Kaden has been crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything. He is even letting go once he is standing and stands there for a few seconds. He seems to have very good balance which is great. I have noticed as he becomes more confident in doing things large motor wise, that he is playing while sitting on his knees. Most would not think of this as being a big deal...but it's oh so cute to watch. Just look at those little toes! :)

United States Gold Bureau

Thanks to the United States Gold Bureau you can purchase silver, gold bullion an other precious metals. I don't know about you, but I've always been interested in investing. I know people who have done this with coins and have been very thankful they did. As I look into the United States God Bureau, I'm very impressed. They make it possible for you to arrange for immediate personal delivery or convenient and safe storage...whichever you'd prefer.

I would highly recommend checking it out if you are at all interested. There may never be a better time to buy silver bullion than right now because the world demand for it now exceeds annual production. This has got me wanting to do something soon. It's definitely worth looking into anyways.

Crockpot Suppers

I just love the crockpot. It makes mealtime much easier for me many nights. Tonight we meet with our Realtor and it's going to be right around supper time. I knew we'd need to have something ready to eat when he leaves. Not having time to make anything beforehand...I decided that we'll have chili in the crockpot. You can't get much easier than that...and yet, it's oh so yummy! Can't wait! I know it's the middle of summer, but chili is god any time, right?

The Florist in My Neighborhood

Guest post written by Joseph Finch

I was ready to plan my wedding as soon as my fiance proposed to me. I had been wanting to get married since I was a little girl so it's no surprise that I already had ideas of what I wanted. I first started to look at places in town. I was driving around trying to find a florist and the caterer and it was just taking me forever!

My honey suggested we get huges net satellite internet service so I could go online. Boy what I glad when he suggested that! Once hughes net new york installed I was able to cut my search time into a fraction of what I had been doing. I was able to find a ton more options as well. When I was running around town I thought finding a good florist was going to be impossible! After using houghes net though I was able to find out about a few little known places and even people that did this stuff on their own. I ended up picking this woman who lived a couple blocks away from me as my florist. She had such an artistic eye for this thing. I absolutely fell in love with the bouquet she made me!

Feeling Better

What a weekend. Thursday we went to look at a house (since we're still in the process of trying to sell ours). I knew something was up...I was achey, freezing (then hot)...but didn't put two and two together until the day slowed down a bit. I finally took my temp and I had a fever. The next day and a half were pretty miserable. Thankfully my hubby was here to help take care of me. By saturday afternoon i was feeling much better and have been without a fever ever since. It must have been viral, but was still no fun. I'm thankful I'm feeling better.
