Family Vacation

We live in a state that has had a lot of snow storms and snow in itself. It seems as though this winter has been longer then normal. We are all fed up with the cold, snow and bad roads that we have to endure. I know for me I am ready for a fun tropical family vacation and I know exactly where I would want to go and that would to stay at one of the luxury Karisma hotels in Mexico. You can find hot tubs and hammocks, swim-up rooms with ocean views, white gauze curtains floating over four poster beds, beautifully presented food made by expert chefs. This is a family vacation of pampering all under one price and I'm sure anyone enduring a winter like we have well deserves such a vacation.

Tax Time

I always dread this time of year when we have to gather all of our tax information together and either go to a tax preparer or do them yourself like I do. I sat for almost 5 hours the other day doing ours. I did a few things in between. I was amazed how long I sat at my computer. I have them almost done and am still waiting on one more piece of information. I always thought it was law to have the W2s and 1099s out by the end of January. Evidently not everyone abides by that. Oh well, it's teaching me patience.

Life Insurance

If you are someone who is married and have children you will probably want to consider buying life insurance. Even if you are single this is important. I know when our children were younger I thought if something ever happened to my husband, how would I be able to support my children and myself and also if something happened to me how would that affect my husband and children. We always felt we should both have life insurance to make sure that if a tragedy happened we would be well taken care of financially. It is really important to consider this. Even as we get older we don't want to lose our spouse and then leave a burden of funeral expenses and possibly medical and other expenses. Be prepared and make sure you have life insurance.

Eye Cream for Dark Circles

I have been the kind of person who has dealt with dark circles under my eyes for a long time. They are probably more noticeable to me then to others but I have to try and use a concealer to lighten them up. Now there is an eye cream for dark circles. I may have to check into this and see how well it works.

Adult Acne

It is sometimes hard enough as an adult to deal with an occasional pimple but when you are someone who has adult acne it has to be frustrating. You think you should be past the acne stage from when you are a teenager but you find yourself still having issues with it. It is helpful when you can find a good product that can finally clear that up so that you don't have to feel self conscious anymore.

Diet Pills

I am seriously getting tired of having extra weight on myself. I have been thinking a lot about how I can lose the extra pounds quickly and easily. diet pills is an option but before I would even think about trying any I would probably do some research online to find out which ones are the most effective and also if there are any side effects. It's important to me to be safe and healthy.

Valentines Day

Valentines Day is coming up on Sunday. Do you do anything special on that day with your sweetheart? This year my husband and I decided to keep it pretty low keyed since we recently took a vacation together but we will be sure and spend the evening together once I get home from work and maybe I will plan a special dinner for the two of us.

Buy Gold Bullion

It can be kind of scary these days to invest in the market. I have seen the market crash and many people lose their retirement money that they had planned to live on in their elderly years. We work hard for our money and when we turn around and try to invest some of it to make more money for us we want to make sure it will be safe. When you buy gold bullion you will have your money in a secure investment. You can protect it from inflation and build a legacy of wealth for yourself and family.

I am really interested in cactus. We learned how they have a very short root system unlike trees such as maples or walnut trees that spread way out. They also bloom in the spring and are very beautiful. There are many different shapes and sizes to cactus and Arizona is full of them.

Sarah's Song

My youngest son has a real talent. God has blessed him with being able to write and rap lyrics that touch people's lives. His good friend was very recently in a terrible car accident and he wrote and performed this song for her. It is so good.


She opens her eyes,
And she hits the alarm,
Climbs up out of bed,
And adjusts her arm,
She wipes the sleep from her eyes,
and begins to thank God,
for saving her that night,
when almost everything was gone,
the vehicle totaled,
the pain so bad,
the wondering eyes,
the fear she had,
she screamed for help,
the metal did bend,
and gave witness to the love of God, the savior of man,
the paramedics were shocked,
the people gasped,
when she came out alive,
and was given the chance,
to spread the word of our Lord,
His works so great,
If He can save her from that, we shouldn’t hesitate,
To give our lives up to him,
And receive his protection,
His love so endless,
so full of affection,
we are placed on this earth to spread his love,
to the ones who are lost, lonely, and gone,
He sent His son to take on all sin,
We can have eternal life if we just let Him in,
So please I beg of you now,
I’m down on my knees,
Accept Jesus Christ, the savior of thee,
As He hang upon the cross, he thought of you,
He gave his last breath as he thought of you,
He was beaten so badly as he thought of you,
And He smiles so big at the thought of you,
We can’t sit here and expect good things,
When we go around the world confessing false things,
We must devote our lives,
Devote every last thing,
To the One who gave life to you and me,
Now as I end this song, with one final request,
I ask that you stand back and begin to assess,
The life you have lived, is He where he belongs,
Please find Him soon, before all is gone.
If you hesitate now, it might be too late,
And you may not get the chance to see Heaven’s Gate,
But with a simple prayer and acceptance of Him,
You can leave behind the past, this life of sin,
And move on to glory, His love awaits,
He died on the cross to set our lives straight,
He gave us a song, a song of love to sing,
if not for Jesus Christ, we would have no-thing,
We would all be lost, but He paid the high cost,
Yes He paid the high cost so we wouldn’t be lost,
He paid the high cost so we wouldn’t be lost,
I said He paid the high cost so we wouldn’t be lost,
We owe it all to him, we owe him our lives,
So we must start now and begin to strive,
To live for Him, without living in sin,
We must love every one, we must love like Him,
We must help each other, help one another,
Extend our hand, lift up each other,
So if hearing my story of a miracle girl,
Doesn’t change your mind, doesn’t change your world,
Then I lift you up, to the most High King,
Who can bring new life to every living thing,
He saved her life, He can save yours too,
If she can crawl from the wreckage, so can you,
Life sure gets hard, I know it gets tough,
It may seem pointless, it can get so rough,
But with help from Him, we can all push through,
We can pray for others, until we’re all brand new

I love to shop but not only to just shop but to find some really great deals. I also want to be able to find what I am looking for. Occasionally I am in need of a certain item that I have trouble finding but when I shop at ShopWiki I know that I will be able to find exactly what I need. Internet shopping has so much available to the person who is looking for something special and ShopWiki makes available every site that is selling what you are looking for and also displays the sales that are going on. For example, if you are looking for a wireless router, ShopWiki will be able to display what you probably are looking for. There is no more wondering if you are going to be able to find a certain item. It is a wonderful way to shop.

Arizona Trip

It's almost been a week since we've returned home from our Arizona trip. We were blessed with a free house to stay in while we were down there and the location of this home was in a beautiful area. We enjoyed so much the weather and area in which we stayed. We would love to go back again someday and hopefully we will be able to do that.
