Aloha Friday


An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.
. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a
comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question:

This question is not for Democrats or Republicans ect.. this is just a common sense question. Do you think that the president and members of Congress should read the health care bill before pushing it through?

My Answer:
Simply. Yes.
Oh and a follow up to my last week's question re: the animals having the right to sue?! Guess what? There is a new "guy" by the name of John P. Holdren, the man who now advises President Barack Obama on science and technology issues. "Giving “natural objects” -- like trees -- standing to sue in a court of law would have a “most salubrious” effect on the environment" Holdren wrote


Oh don't forget to enter my two giveaways at the top of of my blog!

Health Care? or... is it Control?!

It is very interesting why the government doesn't want us to see the "CHART" for the New Health Care Plan! You can see it here! Take a look at it.. and I dare you.. just try and make sense of it!

It's All About the Ratings!

I know most of you out there are either just starting a website/blog or even if you are an experienced blogger..at one time or another you didn't know one "click" from another. How to upload a file. Let alone what in the world HTML meant! Web hosting is another one of those terms..that make you go "huh?".. Do I need that? What in the world is it? How will it help me? Believe me I am one of those with all the questions.

The definition for Web Hosting is the service of hosting a site on the Internet making it viewable for other user on the net. You can find many Web Hosting services that are actually free. However, you sometimes run into annoying pop ups and ads. And you have less control in the customizing department.

There is an awesome site that compares a bunch of Web Hosting Companies. Compares their pricing, services, and best of all the star rating by other users! I always check reviews on everything.. before I purchase! You can find all kinds of options such as the unix web hosting, or windows hosting, VIP hosting and so much more. I certainly cannot and do not pretend to understand all the computer jargon but I do understand how to find a good deal! So the bottom line is if you are looking for a Web Hosting Company...always compare before buying!

My Little Doll

My little Doll playing with blocks. I love this picture.. She is wearing the necklace my husband bought her in San Diego!





Extreme Makeover: Me Edition

{ae filkins}


Alright How Am I doing? Well, hmmm can't say that I have achieved making myself complete priority yet.. but slowly working on it. Here is a picture of the TV I finally hung in our exercise room. See how high it is? My husband was making fun of me for not measuring the wiring! lol

Exercise is still not my main focus :( But I am working on it. Other than more hot air excuses.. that's pretty much how I am these days! :)





Home Made Pinata!


Have you ever made a Pinata? I have many times.. I have always used newspaper. With a flour, water, and salt mixture. However, I realized I didn't have any newspaper, so I started thinking.. and suddenly I remembered I had a few phone books in the garage. Who uses phone books anymore? lol Anyway, My tip is cutting strips out of the phone book! It works great!!


Here is my Pinata after it was dry! I popped the balloon in the center. Now I have to buy some tissue paper and a poster board to finish up with the "Cat and the Hat" theme! (for my son's bday). This is such an easy project. A little messy and takes a couple of days to dry, but my word.. it's better than paying 20 dollars for one..when you can be creative with your own at home for pennies!
1 part flour to 2 parts water with a 1 to 2 TBLS of Salt to prevent mold! It needs to be a thick glue like texture!

Cool Stuff For FREE!



I was able to get both of these things FREE plus a princess canopy for my daughter (couldn't find a pic). You know how I was able to get these FREE?? Just by using Swagbucks as my search engine everyday I was able to earn enough.. and cash my Bucks in for a Disney Gift card!! Wooo hooo :) All my stuff is in the mail.. will be here just in time for my son's birthday!

Try Swagbucks out if you haven't already!!!

Search & Win





The Vent Valve is Open! lol


I have a question. Why is it that people or family (Not naming any nameslol) that do not like you.. continue to google your name or your families names???? (You know there are tracking programs that allows you to know when people google your name or your families names) The only thing I can think of is that person wants to find something wrong..or something they can use against me or my family. All I have to say is good luck.. you'll be looking alongggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg time!

But seriously quit googling(actually you have been using "yahoo" to search) my parents lol They have done nothing to you..they have always been kind to you. Oh and googling my brother and his family is not cool either UGH If you want to know how my family is doing then you can ask. :) My husband just tells me to ignore it.. and I try..but when you mess with my family it is difficult to overlook. This kind of goes along with an earlier post here!



A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
