Future Dentist

Hubby and I had our dental appointments a couple of days ago. It's our first dental appointment here in TX, so it took us forever to finish the whole examination.
That's what happen when you! Glad Akesha was very patient.
And then the next day...Just out of the blue while hubby's laying down the couch, Akesha said "Papa, I wanna be a dentist!".

 So she went to our bathroom and grabbed a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, empty cup, and my sunglasses.
I guess she got the idea from our dental hygienist. Great job anak, you are pretty observant!

Why Concerts are Better than Ever

Guest post written by Clarence Jones

My wife and I are huge music lovers and regularly attend concerts of all kinds. We’ve probably been to hundreds together in our 40-plus years of marriage. We have a hard time justifying paying top dollar for seats up in the front of the venue, though, because they’re so expensive! That’s why when we go out, we try to sit closer to the back, where seats are about half-price, which has never been a problem until recently.
Over the last few months, I’ve noticed that the sound is getting less and less crisp from the back of the concert halls.
Well, when I was driving back home from a business trip last week, I saw a sign for Miracle Ear hearing aids Austin Texas. I remembered having those hearing issues at concerts, which prompted me to check out hearing aid locations in GA when I returned home.
I got my hearing tested a nearby location, and was told I definitely needed a hearing aid. I liked the feel of the digital hearing aid better, so I went with that—and so far, it’s been fantastic. Now at concerts I hear just as well (if not better!) than the high-rolling folks in the front row.

Sisterly Bonding at It's Finest

Guest post written by Urma Phillips

My sister and I don’t get to see each other often since we live far away from each other, so we like to talk on the phone whenever we can. We’re both at retirement age now, so even though it’s hard to break away from life and go see each other, we’re still able to talk fairly regularly.
Well, the other day she called me to tell me something cool: She’d just been to Miracle ear in Madison and had gotten herself a set of digital hearing aids. Well, I hadn’t heard much about hearing aids in Los Angeles CA, where I live, so I asked her more about them. She said she never knew just how badly she needed them until she got them.
I’d definitely noticed that my hearing had gradually declined over the years, so I was curious to see what they’d do for me. I called my best friend in Florida to ask her about Ft Myers hearing aids, to see if she had any tips. She told me I should get a hearing test, which I did. I ended up needing them, too—so I got the same set as my sister. Now we have another thing to bond about!

Weekend Getaway

How's your weekend everyone?! Ours was a busy one. We spent a whole day at SeaWorld last Saturday. It was cool because hubby's IT Dept had a family picnic and everybody receives complimentary tickets from USAA. Plus we got extra 3 tickets to go back anytime we want! Thanks USAA!
A whole day pass saves us $150 more or less for the three of us. We did not spend a single dime when we went there. Food and drinks are FREE as well!
We had so much fun. Akesha had a blast the most because it's her first time to go to SeaWorld. Shamu and Azul are Akesha's favorite show. Enjoy the slideshow!

Hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Thanks to Olga Quinn

I have everything I need to go hiking. My favorite pair of boots, my water bottle, the bug spray, snacks, and all the other essentials. I feel like I am forgetting something though. Aha! I set my home security alarm before I head out the door to go meet my fiance for a fun-filled day of hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We were able to find a great deal on home security from
Living at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains gives me a chance to explore their beauty anytime I want to. I try to hike different trails each time I go. No matter which location I choose, I know that I am not going to be disappointed. I especially like to go hiking in the fall when the leaves are changing just before the cold weather hits. Hiking is not only a great way to enjoy the outdoors but it is a great way to exercise. The challenges that hiking brings physically are very rewarding. Hiking is also my way of escaping the real world if only for a short time. The sense of peace that it brings me has no comparison.

Decorating a Nursery

Post contributed by Hilton Miranda

My best friend just recently had her first baby and I took it upon myself to help her decorate her nursery. She had mentioned to me early on in the pregnancy that she had absolutely no idea what she was doing and very little energy to even think about putting an entire baby's room together. I was more than happy to help her out with this decorating project. I have known her since I was seven, so I needed very little input on what it was that she wanted. But, since I have no children of my own, I wasn't really sure about putting together a nursery.
I used my CLEAR internet deals to find different types of furniture, wall treatments and themes that I knew she would love to have in her new daughters room. I was able to help her pick out the perfect furniture and bedding for the room using different websites. I also spent an entire weekend helping her paint the room and stencil on a design that her and I had picked out. Being able to put this room together for her and her new daughter meant so much to me. I love that I got to play an important role in her new family and feel honored that she trusted me to help her out.

Howdy folks? It's Blue Monday time! How's your weekend everyone!? Our weekend went well. We went to Enchanted Springs Ranch last Saturday and on Sunday we watched a 3D movie called "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you looking for a great place to take a vacation? There is no vacation like visiting Kissimmee, Florida and this summer is the best time to visit Kissimmee. I would love to take my husband and daughter on this vacation because we all love to visit the amusement parks. This location is only minutes of south Orlando. There are so many things to do in Florida such as attend the great theme parks and ride the exciting roller coasters. You also might want to visit Toho Lake and ride some airboats or go fishing to catch some bass. They also contain some great golf courses for those of you that enjoy golf. My top four things to do would be to golf, go to the amusement parks, visit Toho Lake, and do some fishing. You can't forget about all of the great restaurants either, and don't forget about the great places to stay. I wouldn't mind staying at the 4 Winds Hotel because the price is reasonable. You can stay at a luxury resort, or spend your time lounging by the pool. You can also rent a vacation home, and spend time shooting pool in the family room. Kissimmee can be your favorite vacation spot. They also have special offers for dinner and hotels. You can check this website and plan your dream vacation to Kissimmee as well.

Watching films with the girlfriends

Written by Fermin Washington
My girlfriends and I spare boyfriends and husbands the painful task of going to see romantic comedies by having a cocktail and going together. Yes we readily admit it. Over the years, there have been times where we don't go as much and times when we can get together more often. We've seen the Sex and the Cities, the Notebook, He's Just Not That Into You, the break-up ones, the rebound ones, the family ones, the impossible battle-axe ones, you name it. My city has great choices for movie theaters so it's always something we can do for fun.
Some nights my friend will come over, and we'll listen to music and have dinner or maybe go on a run. Then get dressed and head out, setting the Home Security monitoring system first of course so we don't have to worry on a girl's night. We'll meet up with the rest of the group at the theater, engage in the drama and watch the guy do something noble to get a woman, and then commiserate later over whether it was good or not.
It's a blast! Highly recommended, and we don't owe boyfriends a kung-fu or muscle movie afterward (unless one of us is so inclined).

Got My Aquarium Set Up Again!

Buried Film Trailer

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of goviral. All opinions are 100% mine.

A man is buried alive and all he has is a lighter, knife and cell phone. Unfortunately he doesn't remember how he got there, but it is starting to come back to him. He has many issues facing him while he is living in this whole. He calls the outside with his cell phone, but has issues such as low oxygen, low battery, and a lack of recollection on how he got there. He also has poor reception. With all of these obstacles, he has to figure out how to let people know where he is located. This thriller is directed by Rodrigo Cortes and is staring Anne Lockhart and Ryan Reynolds who played in National Lampoon's Van Wilder and The Proposal. Ann played in A Dog's Tale and had many guest appearances on Knight Rider and Quantum Leap. So if you are looking for the next great movie to watch, you should checkout Buried.

Cascade Cavern is a ‘live’ cave; water is constantly moving through the rock and creating formations. 
It was OK...

Crafts and Vegas

Guest post written by Kelly Bush

The crafts trade show in Las Vegas is always something that I really look forward to each year. I mean, it is Vegas! This year was certainly no exception so I prepared like I always do and drove my way there.
On the second night of the show, I was getting drinks with some other vendors at the hotel bar when I was having trouble hearing what they were saying. I thought it was the loud noise of the Vegas bar but then when we were eating breakfast the next morning in the relatively quiet restaurant I noticed I was having trouble hearing her talk then too. During one of the free afternoons I stopped by miracle ear Las Vegas and got some information about hearing aids. I got fitted for some there and enjoyed the rest of the trade show even more because of that.
When I got home I e-mailed my sister to tell her how the show went and my new hearing aids. She told me that she had gone to miracle ear MILWAUKEE recently and done the same thing. She also said that our brother went to miracle ear ATLANTAand got some hearing aids too.
I didn’t know any of that stuff, but I guess I just didn’t bother to ask before.

My New Baby Has Arrived!

One of my major goals this year is to buy a decent camera, like a new DSLR. What am I thinking? I just bought a camera less than a year! I tried to save up some money for months, but I kept spending! I was going to get an iPad for my birthday, but hubby asked me what do I want for my birthday. ...and without hesitation...I told him I want a new camera! He knew it was coming! lol...:) So he added some money on my savings, and bought myself a Nikon D5000 online. Thanks a lot hon!
This is my 5th camera...waaaaaaaa! 5 camera in 5 seems like I change camera every! My first digital camera was a kodak, then GE, then another GE, fujifilm, and Nikon. I am hoping this is the last one. 

My first subject! Hubby suggested that I should take a photography class. I'm not sure yet. Maybe someday!

Many people suffer from Athlete's Foot which ends up causing your feet to itch and become dry and flaky. Well, now you can get rid of it by using Lamisil which is an Athlete's foot cream. This condition can affect one in five people and some of the signs are crackling, dry feet and flaky skin. You feet will also be itchy. If you have any of these symptoms, you might have Athlete's foot. Another symptom you might get is fungus within your nails which is the same fungus you get on your feet. Sometimes you can get them both at the same time. You can get this product in a gel or a spray. You can get a lot of helpful information on their website about the cream and Athlete's foot. You can find out how often you should use Lamisil, and how you should apply the cream. You can also find out what else you can do during the treatment for Athelete's foot.
