The Rockies

A couple of weeks ago my family and I took a trip out to Loveland, Colorado and Estes Park. We were planning to attend my nephew's wedding there. We took one day and spent it up in the Rockies. The mountains are so beautiful and we had a really great day. One of my favorite spots was at the Stanley Hotel. There we got a picture of my husband and me with the mountains behind us. It really turned out nice.

This week has been an extremely busy week. By the time Friday hits that will be my seventh day in a row that I have been working. Along with my regular job I have been scraping and painting around windows at the facility where I work. It not only is a long process but I have been working in extreme heat. It is sounding like we might get a cold front moving through to cool it down some for tomorrow so I am very much looking forward to that.

The Tanning Store Spray Tan

I love to get a good tan every summer. The older I get the more I realize I probably shouldn't lay out in the sun anymore or go to tanning beds. I know it ages your skin terribly and can cause skin cancer. It is fun and relaxing to do but sometimes I wonder if it's worth the risk. I have considered the the tanning store spray tan because I could still have a tan without the scare of cancer or aging my skin. I like the alternative option. It's something I should seriously think about.

Memorial Day

Over a week ago we had a wonderful day spending Memorial Day going to the cemetery of some of our loved ones. First we went to my husband's parents gravesides and then we went to my dad's. It was a beautiful day and it was nice to pay our respects to the ones we love. The day ended well with a delicious bbq with my mom and sister.

Indexed Annuities

My husband and I have been trying to save and invest some of our money so that we can have extra to live on when we retire. We have a gal who takes care of it for us and I am so thankful for that because if it were up to me to figure out all the different ways to invest and the terminology I would be lost. Terms like indexed annuities would totally confuse me. I am sure glad that there are people who are educated in this area so that they can help people like myself and my husband.
