Destination Weddings

Planning a wedding can be stressful but can also be so fun. Anymore when we go to a wedding they are so fantastic even way more then when I got married 27 years ago. Can you imagine planning a wedding down in the Riviera Maya in Mexico? My husband and I have been there and it is absolutely beautiful. This is the perfect location for destination weddings. A couple could plan their entire ceremony on the white sandy beach and then take their honeymoon at a Karisma Hotel where they offer an all inclusive package. This hotel is luxurious and you will feel pampered like you should be on your honeymoon. What a way to have the wedding and honeymoon of your dreams.


Well, I think my suntanning days are numbered. I told my husband the other day that we just as well take down the pool now because the water is way to cold to get into it and I can't imagine that we will be getting anymore long stretches of hot weather in the near future to warm it up. So, I guess if I want to tan anymore I will have to lay in my lawn chair and soak up some rays.


A couple of years ago with hooked up with Dish Network. We really like it except when we get bad weather then we lose our signal. Other then that it is great. Along with it we got a dual receiver and a DVR. I don't know how we got along without it before. It is the most amazing unit. It makes recording our favorite shows so easy and the playback couldn't be more simple. It sure makes life easier then the vhs players.

Paintball Marker Package

Are you someone who enjoys playing the sport of paintball? I think it looks like fun and have never played it before. I have seen it played on television and it looks like it would be a great time with friends. There is some pretty cool equipment that goes along with playing this sport. If you are big into playing it you probably are looking for a reasonable place to purchase your items like a paintball marker package, paintball guns and safety gear. It is also nice to find a place where not only get low prices but free shipping. That sure helps the costs. Zephyr Sports is exactly where you can find both. They want to make sure your shopping experience with them is smooth.

Fall Weather

I realize that September is just around the corner but we have had so much weather that feels like fall, this week especially. They are saying the lows will get down into the 40s this weekend. Brrr is all I can say. It just seems so early but then we haven't had a normal summer, it's been quite cool most of the time. I love fall but I hope this weather doesn't bring in an early winter.

Bed Bug Products

My husband and I love to take vacations and small weekend trips. We stay in a variety of motels and hotels. So often they look very clean and you wouldn't think any different but it is said that a majority of these hotels and motels have some level of bed bugs in their rooms.
I recently heard of a story of a woman who had been staying in a motel and brought bed bugs home with her without her knowledge. She started noticing different symptoms on herself that led her to check into it that it was for sure bed bugs. She had quite a time getting rid of them but was soon successful.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to use a product that could help prevent that from happening? You can now with bed bug products from a company you can trust. They make different sizes of bags that will protect your clothing and luggage from those nasty bugs. All you have to do is zip in your luggage or clothing items and before you leave the room take the bags off and leave them there. The reason for this is because the bed bugs will actually attach themselves right to the bags and you surely don't want to take them home with you.
You can protect your own home with products like mattress encasements, bed bug monitors and PackTite bed bug heaters just to name a few. Consider trying these products to protect yourself from bed bugs at home and when you travel.

Work Schedule

At the beginning of summer we had an employee leave us for another job. So of course that has left us shorthanded and I have been putting in more hours at work. At first I didn't like it but when I saw my paycheck I thought to myself, "This is okay!" Now my husband, who is the boss, has hired a new gal. With her being hired we have changed the work schedule so that I will be picking up 4 more days a month. I am somewhat happy about it because I can continue to get those larger checks.

Office Furniture

My husband has a nice office but sometimes I think it would be nice if he could update some of his office furniture. When putting new furniture in an office it really adds warmth and class to it. He has many people go in and out of his office and it does look inviting but I think it would look more inviting with more up to date type of furniture such as chairs and a new desk. Maybe someday that will happen.

RV Parks

My family loves to camp. There is nothing like being out in your camper or tent in a beautiful park enjoying each others company and getting away from everyday life. Many people enjoy taking their campers and motorhomes with them when they travel across the country and are on the outlook for some nice rv parks. Good Sam Club can help you find a nice campground across the USA or Canada. What a helpful tool when traveling.

Vegas Vacations

Have you ever had a chance to take Vegas vacations? We were very lucky to get to travel through Las Vegas several years ago and we stayed a couple of nights in one of their beautiful hotels. Vegas is so lively and full of fun. There is so much to see and do there. There is a lot of great entertainment to see for the whole family. It is so worth the time to plan a vacation to Vegas. I am hoping that sometime in the near future we can go again.

Bluetooth Headset

Just about anywhere you go you see people on their cell phones. Many people use them to keep in contact with loved ones or business associates. A friend of ours is an insurance sales man and is on the road a lot. He uses a Bluetooth headset all the time to keep in contact with his customers and his main office. It is so handy for him and it keeps him safer when he is communicating while driving down the road. This is a great way to never miss a call.

Hot and Humid

We had the most mild, cool July in a long time but since it became August the heat and humidity are on the rise. It finally feels like summer. It can be kind of miserable when your outside trying to do any kind of work but I'm not complaining. I like it to feel like summer. Maybe now our pool can actually warm up.

It is that time of year when you see all sorts of people running around in sandals. I know I enjoy my sandals because they are easy to slip in and out of and they keep my feet nice and cool. If you are like me you enjoy having sandals that match your outfits but I also want them to be comfortable. has a great selection of sandals for everyone in the family. There are so many different styles and colors to choose from. The sandals I have seen on their website are so cute that I could make a long list of the ones I would like to purchase. Not only would you be getting some cute sandals but they also offer free shipping both ways. If you find that you do not like what you ordered or that they don't fit you can return them with their 365 day return policy.
When shopping at you will also find items like handbags, sunglasses, clothing and watches. Check them out for your next pair of sandals and get a great buy.


I have had to work the past six days in a row. I haven't worked that many days in a row in many many years. It went pretty well and my sore feet survived it but I am so glad that stretch is over. Now I have 2 days off and am looking so forward to it. I'm hoping to take some time and just relax and maybe even get out to the pool for awhile.
