Family Diet: A Good Way to Stay Healthy

Dieting and losing weight is quite a hard task, especially if you have to do it alone. Most moms struggle with this dilemma primarily because they are the one who constantly prepare the meals for the entire family. How can you just resist that cheesy lasagna that you made for everyone? This is the reason why, the support from the family is very important in one’s goal to lead a healthier lifestyle.
And while on your roads towards a healthier you, it will be best to take the entire family on this journey. This is such a rewarding experience and teaching your kids on how to eat right even at a young age could greatly improve their outlook towards foods. Start off by introducing the concept of a family diet. Plan a meal that is healthy yet everyone will enjoy. Be prepared to see frowning faces from the little ones but there are also means on how you can insert vegetables on the diet without having to endure that green, leafy taste. A little online research could provide you with healthy recipes that are perfect for kids. In here you can incorporate these healthy ingredients as a substitute without altering the taste.  
Also remember that diet alone will not help you lose weight as it needs to be accompanied with proper exercise. Nothing is more fun than sweating and playing with the entire family. A run around the park or a weekend outdoor activity could serve as a means to enjoy some family bonding and also a time to exercise. Let your children help out in carrying out this diet plan so that they could learn about the value of healthy living at an early age.

Residential Solar Power Systems

More and more people who want to lower their monthly electric bill and the same time be more environmentally responsible with their energy usage, have decided to install solar panels in their homes. Unlike before when the price of solar panel is so steep, more and more people are becoming interested in them because of the dramatic decrease in its price. Aside from that, more people are also becoming aware of the benefits of using solar panels as a source of energy for their homes. Residential Solar Power Systems are allowing homeowners a more environment friendly source of energy. They have become more affordable even to average consumers. They have helped in lowering, if not totally eliminating, the monthly electric bills that consumers have to pay. Companies who provide solar panels also provide other services such as providing experts that will install them. The size and number of solar panels that will be used in each residence will depend on the daily energy usage as well as the number of hours that a particular location receives maximum sun exposure.
Are you familiar with solar power system? If so, how do you like using this kind of power system? To learn more or if you would like to receive a FREE analysis of your home or business, you should contact 877-767-5967 today!

Educators and parents know that even at an early age, children learn and absorb knowledge easily through their environment and the people that they interact with. They have to be surrounded by people that are ideal role models and must be exposed in an environment that can stimulate their minds.

Yearbook Picture + Report Card

Daughter got her yearbook picture yesterday. I'm glad it turned out good because she was sick when this picture was taken.
Anyhow, I had a meeting with my daughter's teacher last week. They called it "Parent Teacher Conference". Hubby wasn't able to go with me because the schedule was at midday.
I had a 15 minute discussion with the teacher regarding Akesha's progress. Akesha's teacher also told me that she's one of the top students in the class. Overall, she is doing great at school.  I'm very pleased with the results! Congrats anak and keep it up!

Weekend Getaway

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend. I have tons of things to catch up on and I hope I can finish blog hopping soon. Anyhow, our weekend went fine. Last Saturday was our daughter's 3rd soccer game. Oh boy, it was a tough game. Both teams scored 2 points each only...weeeee! It's a tie!
Sunday, we went to a nearby pumpkin patch. I think this place is far better than the last pumpkin patch that we've visited last weekend.
We enjoyed the 7acre corn maize, the hay ride, petting zoo, bouncing area, and the helicopter ride. 
This is the first pumpkin patch that we've ever been to that offers a helicopter ride. Since the ride is affordable, hubby suggested that we should get on it. It was our first helicopter ride and it such a great experience!  Thanks pilot Heath!
After getting lost at the corn maize, we went to pick our pumpkins.
Hubby end up carrying Akesha's purse...lol! A candid shot though.
T'was a great day. How about you? How's your weekend went?

Sugarland

Guest post written by Jeramy Sparks

I’ve got a very sweet husband. A sweet, loving, kind, thoughtful, CHEAP husband. If you know me, you know I love Sugarland. Like screaming thirteen-year-old girl-at-a-Taylor-Swift-concert love. I kind of want to be Jennifer Nettles. I saw a few months ago that tickets were going on sale soon and, of course, batted my eyelashes and made promises I can’t keep to bribe my husband into giving in. Obviously, it’s not in the budget for us. Tickets are upwards of a hundred bucks each, and we’re two struggling grad students trying not to eat Ramen noodles every night. Then, much to my surprise, he came home one day and said he had thought about it and I could buy tickets. I almost did a back flip in the laundry room. On one condition, though. Boo, I hate conditions. I had to do the bills for two months so I could see how tight of a budget we are on and what it means to spend money. I felt like I was ten years old, but I took the deal. DUH! I’m one month into the deal and we’re already switching cable companies and I’m trying to shop electricity rates Texas to save money. It was well worth seeing my girl live, though.

Electronic Payments is IN!

Companies involved in retail sales know how important real time information about their sales is. It will help them understand their clients better based on their purchases. Electronic Payments offer integrated payment information that will help deliver a complete point-of-sales solution in every sales conducted. It will help them process the high volume of card transactions in less time than usual. Retail business will benefit a lot from it. An electronic payment provider should be able to work with both internet and dial-up transactions. They can also provide a comprehensive record-keeping and real time reporting of every transaction made during the day. The data gathered is important for a business because it will help them develop strategies that they can use to improve their services. They can provide transaction history as well as monthly statements for every retail store. From these data, they can create reports that can be used by the company in the development of their products and services. They can also provide technical support to their clients to ensure that they are provided with the services that they need.
I like electronic payments because it reduces paperwork and eliminate late fees. How about you? How do you like using the electronic payment system?

Baby Sling

Having a baby should not hinder you in doing the many things you used to do before the baby came along. You can use a baby pouch or baby wraps to make sure that you and your baby are comfortable. If your baby gets tired, he can even sleep comfortably while he is on it. You can carry your baby with you anywhere you go once you have chosen the right baby pouch that is made from comfortable fabric. If it is an activity or a hobby that does not pose any danger to your baby, doing them might be a perfect opportunity to expose your baby to it. Doing your early morning walk at your favorite park can also be bonding activity with your baby. If you are not sure what to look for, you can ask for help from experts and they can guide you in choosing the perfect baby pouch.

Review: Loopeez Shoe Tying Aid

Do you remember how old you were when you learned how to tie your shoes? Did anyone teach you how to do it? My 5-year old daughter doesn't know how to tie her shoe laces. I always do it for her before she goes to school. I guess I have to blame myself for buying those no lace shoes.
I'm so glad that Loopeez Shoe Tying Aid came to the rescue. Weeks ago, I was given an opportunity to work with loopeez.com. They sent me a complimentary items to try in return for a fair review.

After a few minutes, we let her do it by herself and viola! She did it pretty quick. I was really impressed!

Pumpkin Patch '11

How are y'all doing? I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend. Weekend is always busy for us. Daughter had a soccer game last Saturday, and thank goodness CASA's team wins again with the score of 11-2. We are looking forward to watch their 3rd game this coming Saturday. Sunday, we decided to go to a pumpkin patch. We supposed to do it last weekend but due to the sudden heavy showers we postponed the plan.

Our family has many traditions, which we have made over the years. One of the many traditions we have is picking our own pumpkin and pumpkin carving. Nay, I was not happy of the price so we did not buy our pumpkins yet. We might go to another patch this weekend.

Daughter had a blast with all the rides and entertainment at the pumpkin patch yesterday.

She also made a scarecrow. I was going to help her but it was quiet hot yesterday. I just stayed in the shade...lol!


How about you? How's your weekend?

Huebsch Parts

In running a service oriented business it is important to hire competent employees and to make sure that all the equipments being used in providing services are functioning well. It is vital that employees are getting regular training so that they know how to deal with clients effectively. Each of the equipments that are being used in the business must be functioning well to be able to provide the services that clients deserve. Using top of the line equipments helps in providing more efficient services and in producing more quality products. They should be inspected regularly to make sure that they are in excellent condition. If certain equipments malfunction, they should be repaired immediately. A decrease in the number of functioning equipments and machines would affect the number of products being produced. Use only the authentic parts for your equipments. Buy only from trusted stores. If, for instance you have a laundry business, buying authentic parts for your washing machines and dryers can ensure that they will function well. Huebsch Parts, water valves, belts, clamps and coin chutes should only be purchased from authorized distributors because low quality parts may only cause your washers and dryers to malfunction and this may create more problems for your business in the future.

A scarecrow for the perfect spooky addition to our front yard

Guest post written by Howard Hewitt

I think that it isn't really Halloween until I'm satisfied with all of the Halloween decorations that I've put up at our home. A few months ago our basement flooded and ruined some of our holiday decorations, so I had to replace most of the Halloween decorations this year. I guess that's one good thing that came out of the flooding was getting to have fun with making some more decorations.
I got the idea to make a scarecrow for our front yard by looking through some of my favorite craft blogs with my Clear. I found all kinds of ideas, but I knew that I had to make that one.
I got my son to help me make the scarecrow, which really was a job for more than one person. It was kind of tough stuffing all that straw into a scarecrow. Plus, we made it life sized, which made it even more spooky and difficult to make. It took us almost all afternoon last Saturday making it, but we were both really proud of it. I even had my husband take a picture of the two of us with our spooky creation.

School Supplies for Less!

Those who are in charge of the family’s budget know that it is sometimes hard to keep track of all the daily expenses especially if there a number of unexpected expenses that are beyond their control. An emergency situation can take a huge chunk off a family’s monthly budget especially those who do not have an emergency fund. With prices of basic commodities constantly rising, parents are always trying to find out how they can save from their everyday purchases. There are those who use coupons when purchasing certain products to get discounts off of the retail price. At the start of another school year, parents would usually purchase back to school supplies at wholesale stores where most items are being sold at discounted prices. That way, they can buy all the school supplies that their children need without going over the budget. They can also choose to purchase them in bulk to get more savings. The school supplies that they do not need at the moment are either stored for future use or sold to other parents who have children who need them.
For more affordable school supply needs, you should visit schoolsuppliesforless.com today. I might want to get some arts and crafts material for my daughter.

Guadalupe River State Park

Texas weather is crazy...lol! Texas is known for its crazy weather patterns. It's already fall to some parts of the US but not in Texas. I always feel like summer is not over here yet. The weather forecast for this week is between 86-95°F. A couple of weekend ago was very hot. It was 103°F.
So my family and I decided to go to out of town. We went hiking along the Guadalupe river. We didn't make it far because daughter wanted to take a plunge into the river.
Guadalupe River State Park is a very nice park with good campsites, great hiking and biking trails, and access to the clear flowing water of the Guadalupe River
It was unplanned. We don't have any swimming suits with us, but since it was too hot that day we all took a plunge. 
gotta eat some snacks...hand me some cheese father...:)
We are thinking of going back there again and will bring some extra clothes for sure.

Experts in Sourcing and Procurement

Every entrepreneur would want someday to expand his business nationally and eventually internationally. Being able to have your products or services patronized by people all over the world is a major achievement. Every individual or company that plans to expand their reach globally needs to understand first the similarity and differences of local and international markets. Consumers behave differently which is why they really need to make thorough research and study of them. If they plan to take their business to China, for instance, they might want to try to enlist the services of a china sourcing company. That kind of company has a better understanding of the business environment in China. They know where they can acquire all the materials and equipments that they may need for their business expansion. They have comprehensive knowledge of the techniques and business strategies of successful chinese manufacturers. They can help in the hiring process of new employees. The differences in the language will no longer be an obstacle since they can also provide translation services. Through an outsourcing company, expanding a business to another country will no longer be as difficult as before. I believe my husband’s company is doing this kind of strategy.

Kitchen Remodeling

Are you planning a kitchen remodeling? There are so many things to consider when you are trying to estimate just how much your planned kitchen remodeling may cost. The space that is available may determine just how simple or intricate your remodelling will be. A smaller space can only allow you to put the essential parts on your kitchen while a bigger space allows you to have additional cabinets and furniture depending on your preference. If you do not know how to set up an ideal budget for your new kitchen, you may opt to hire a professional that can give you helpful suggestions which will give you a safe estimate of how much it would cost. You can also give them your average budget and from there, they can suggest which will create the look you want for your kitchen and still be within your target budget. That way, you don’t end up making costly decisions just because you do not have the right information and guidance from experts. You should decide which basic changes should be done and prioritize them. If you have extra budget after all the basic changes, then you can buy additional accessories for your kitchen if you want.

I’m pretty sure it can be difficult to prepare meals when you have a hectic schedule. After all, it is much easier to stop at a fast food restaurant on your way home from work than it is to come home and cook something. My husband used to do that when he was single. Aside from fast food, he also buy some frozen foods.

I believe that some frozen foods are often not only cheaper than fresh items, but also healthier —especially when it comes to fruits and vegetables. I sometimes use frozen foods. How about you? How often do you buy frozen items?
A week ago, I was given a complimentary coupon to try out the new T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “EntrĂ©es for One”. Thanks T.G.I. Fridays! So I went to the store and grabbed a box of sizzling fajitas. Right after I got home, I immediately opened the box and heat the food in the microwave. Oh, boy! I can’t believe how delicious it was. My husband thought I went to T.G.I Fridays restaurant. He didn’t know it came out from a frozen box. Have you ever tried the new line of T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “EntrĂ©es for One yet? You should try it for yourself! You might also want to checkout the Fun Freezer contest on Facebook. So what are you waiting for?

2mi + Hike = Accomplished!

My family recently took up hiking as a new hobby. I thought before hiking is a boring hobby but I just realized that hiking is FUN! I get to appreciate the beauty of nature even more, plus it's a great way to burn calories and fat stores....lol! 
Our 5-year old daughter is always on the go. She likes nothing better than to get moving. Hubby and I are thinking of taking her to half dome Yosemite in the next few years. She was 6-month old when we took her there.
This park is the best hiking trail in town! We went to this place last weekend.
The trails here are well marked and vary in difficulty from level one to four. Level one is obviously the easiest and four... the most fun. Of course we took the fun level....lol!
The trail map. We reached our goal! Ayay, a 2 mile hike was challenging.

Cell Phone with NO Contract!

This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.
I believe that the mobile phone is the greatest communication tool ever invented. Don’t you agree? A lot of people have moved from their traditional land line phones to the mobility of lower cost of cell phones. My husband and I are one of those people who have moved from a land line to cell phones. It’s been three years since we stopped using our land line phones. For us, using a cell phone is more convenient. The only downside about using the cell phone is the service contract. Signing a service contract with a cell phone carrier is often necessary to get the cellular service and the cell phone that you want. My husband and I are considering of switching to Straight Talk. We heard a lot of positive feedback about their services. We’re pretty impress about the Android on Straight Talk, plus no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks. Where can you find such a great deal like Straight Talk? If we switch to them I’ll be able to Call a friend who lives in the Philippines. At Straight Talk, they have International Long Distance Service that has a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates. This service provider is not the same with other guys that has a policy like Hook, line and sinker. All the cellphone you need without a contract!
