Happy Labor Day

I am going to York Beach, Maine, Sunday until sometime Monday. It is supposed to be sunny and somewhere in the 80's! Nice weather for the beach, yea! Instead of camping (which we did a lot of this year), we are staying over night at a hotel. I got a good deal on a hotel up there for one night.

I will have more details, when I return. Hope everyone has a Happy Labor Day!

You Could Save A Life


If you knew that you could possibly save someone's life, wouldn't you want to do all that you could to do that? Well now women have a chance to do just that. Woman's menstrual blood has now been shown to have potentially life saving stem cells in them.

A company called C'elle empowers women to easily and safely collect non-controversial, and potentially life saving stem cells from their menstrual blood. Scientific study of C'elle stem cells was recently published in the Journal of Cell Transplantation.

C'elle stem cells have the potential to possibly treat diseases, such as, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, MS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. C'elle stem cells have also been proven to be 100% match for the woman donor and possibly match her first degree relatives.

If I knew that my stem cells could help someone in my family, I would want to do that. If heaven forbid either I got sick with something or a family member did, I would love to know that I had the option to possibly save a life. Even if you or your loved ones are healthy now, you never know what may happen in the future. Also stem cell reasearch is still in the developing stages and it would be great to help make an impact by expanding stem cell research.

If you would like to learn more About the Science behind C'elle, then I encourage you to visit their website. There you will be able to hear C'elle Client Testimonial, and hear for yourself how you could possibly save a life.

How Good Are You at Jigsaw Puzzles?

Here's a fun jigsaw puzzle for you to try. I saw this on somebody's blog. I tried it. I thought it was a fun and cool idea that you could put it on your blog.

I think the time to beat is 5 minutes 59 seconds. My time was 9 minutes 59 seconds. Not to bad, I guess. Click on the image below and try it for yourself.

I think they have other ones on this website that you can try and even put one on your own blog if you want. Good Luck!

Memorable Hollywood Lines

For more widgets please visit

I really love movies. I especially like love stories. Some really memorable lines have come from movies. And there's some great ones that come from love stories.

One that comes to mind is from the movie "As Good As It Gets." I remember when Jack Nicholson's character says to Helen Hunt's character - "You make me want to be a better man." Oh, I love that quote, and that would melt my heart if someone said that to me.

I think some lines from movies would really work on people. If you wanted to flirt with someone you could use a famous line from a movie, but you might want to come up with your own original line.

If you want to practice some of your lines then you should try Extreme Style by VO5 Ultimate Flirting Championship. It's a fun game to play and see if some of the classic Hollywood lines would work. If these lines do end up working you just might achieve Victory Hair.

PhotoHunt 125 (7) "Beautiful"

This weeks Photo Hunters theme is "beautiful." Here is my photo. Which I just spent hours trying to find on my computer. I have a bunch saved in my photos, but now my computer keeps saying they can not be located on the computer. I found this one. Which is a beautiful rose bush I used to have. Key word used to. This is the "Hundred Year Old Rose Bush."

Here's the "Hundred Year Old Rose Bush" story:

Supposedly this was originally my great-grandmother's rose bush. It grew in Vermont. My grandmother inherited it and transplanted it to Massachusetts. When my grandmother died, and they were selling her house (which I lived in for 5 years before she died) the rose bush was almost left behind. I moved to New Hampshire and did not at first take the rose bush with me. Until my Aunt told me that I better go back and get that rose bush, because it was a "Hundred Year Old Rose Bush!"

At the time, that was the last thing I felt like doing. I was 6 month pregnant at the time, also having a 3 year old to deal with. I had just moved and was trying to deal with all that. But my Aunt insisted that this was a very special rose bush and I couldn't leave it behind. So my husband went back and dug it up. We then planted it in our front yard in NH.

There for years it bloomed, with beautiful yellow roses! Seeming to have more beautiful roses then it ever did at the old house it was at. It didn't get enough sun where it used to be, and I thought I had found the perfect spot for it. One year I remember counting over 20 roses on it through out the season.

Then one day the beautiful rose bush was no more. It died :( One spring it looked brown and dead. I waited and waited to see if any roses would bloom. But the bush grew browner and browner. I guess it was because the roots must have frozen. We had a very rough winter that year, and the rose bush did not survive. "What have I done?," I thought. I killed the "Hundred Year Rose Bush!"

So that is the story of my beautiful roses above. This rose bush supposedly lived for 100 years, until I got a hold if it! Sorry Grammy!

Could You Make The Same Choice?

I don't post too many video's on here. But thought I would share this with you. I first saw this the other day on the blog This Side of Eternity.

Also, if I see a video on someone's blog, I don't always take the time to watch it. But for some reason I watched this one. This is a very powerful and moving video, that really got me thinking. Also, I hate to admit it but I have not been a very religious person in the past few years. But regardless, I really felt something when I watched this video. But I'm not sure if I could or would make the same choice as the man in the video did.

If you have the time please watch this video to see what I mean. Let me know what you thought, or what you would do. Thanks.

How To Achieve Victory Hair

For more widgets please visit

One of the worst pick up lines I've ever heard, is "Hey, what's up? Guess what? It's your lucky day. Out of all the girls here, I picked you to talk to."

Wow, gee thanks, that makes me feel great - not! Not a great way to start a conversation. Number one the guy sounds like an arrogant jerk, and number two it makes the girl feel second rate.

Not a great way to achieve "Victory Hair." Don't know what Victory Hair is? Well let's just say it's when a guy and a girl start flirting, starting out with great styled hair, of course. Then one thing leads to another and the hair is no longer perfectly styled, if you know what I mean. That's how you get Victory Hair.

Now you can see if you can achieve Victory Hair by playing Extreme Style by VO5's Ultimate Flirting Championship. Play the game shown above. Come on, practice some better pick up lines, and use your flirting skills! Get your game on, and achieve Victory Hair, today!

Thursday Thirteen #5 "13 Reasons I love New Hampshire"

I grew up in Massachusetts. And lived there all my life, until my husband, son, and I (I was actually about 6 months pregnant with my daughter at the time) moved to New Hampshire. I've been living in New Hampshire for almost 9 years. And I love it. So here are (not in any particular order) :

Thirteen Things I love about New Hampshire

1....Tax Free State (no sales or income tax - love it!)
2....The Mountains (We're the "Granite State")

3....The Lakes

4....The Oceans (if you want the ocean, you can get to that too in NH, one of the most popular ones is: Hampton Beach)
5....The attitude (Our State motto is: "Live Free or Die!")
6....The Schools (I love my kids schools and they have great public schools in my city/state)
7....The country feel to the state (living in Massachusetts is more city like. Here it feels more country - if you know what I mean)
8....Affordable living (not so much right now - lol! But originally that was one of the main reasons for buying a house in NH over MA, was because the house prices are better in NH - and still are compared to MA, other things are cheaper here too.)
9....The Driving (again - compared to MA - which is crazy driving. Here in NH it is more laid back and you don't get that "road rage feeling" I remember getting driving in MA)
10....The Crime Rate (We have crime in NH - duh. But when I watch my local news most of it is about fires, and bank robberies, sometimes they even have stories about lost dogs - not kidding, not so much about murders and more serious crime)
11....I love the city I'm living in - in NH (My city was actually voted the number one city in the country to live 2 times in previous years.)
12....The History (NH is rich in history as one of the first States in the nation. And even today still boasts of being "The First in the Nation" when it comes to the Presidential Primaries.)
13...The People (the people here are very friendly. Even my sister who lives in MA, when visits said so. People actually say "Have a good day," "Hi," "How are you today," etc.)

So that's why I love where I live and probably will live here for awhile. That is unless I win the Powerball and move somewhere warmer - lol!

iLasik - Information On New Technology

I'm sure you've heard of LASIK technology before. But did you know there is some new LASIK information out there?

There is a modern Lasik known as iLasik Procedure. The iLasik Procedure uses two lasers, instead of one, that was used in earlier versions of the procedure. iLasik uses wave-front technology to map the unique characteristics of your eye. Then the ultrafast computer guided laser creates a corneal flap. This laser replaces the handheld blade that is used in older versions of the procedure, making it extremely safe. After the flap is created the second laser is guided to correct your vision. These two lasers combined create a procedure that is clinically proven to be safe and provide excellent visual results.

NASA and the U.S military have actually been using this procedure on their personnel for more than five years. This all-laser procecure has been used by the Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA to improve vision in top-personnel that face extreme, physically demanding conditions.

The military has observed that in 100 military personel who have had the iLasik Procedure 95% achieved 20/20 vision or better. When asked for a recommendation 100% of naval aviators would recommend iLasik to their fellow aviators. So if you're in need of visual correction, why not join what NASA and The DOD already know and get the iLasik Procedure.

Fat Loss Guru

Trying to lose weight? Have you tried Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig without success? Well then you should check out an awesome fat loss site. It's called The Fat Loss Guru.

The Fat Loss Guru diet is different from the others because it believes it's not so much what you eat but how much and when you eat. Weight Watchers is based on calorie counting and limiting certain foods that you can eat. The same with Jenny Craig, they supply the food you eat. And that is the only food you are supposed to eat.

I never tried Jenny Craig, personally but I remember a friend of mine a few years back who did. She didn't like much of the food they had to offer (plus the fact that it's rather expensive), so she would only eat a few of the things they offered. Like the waffles and breakfast type foods. That's all she ate for months (rather limiting.) She did lose weight, maybe 20-25 pounds, only to gain it all back as soon as she went off the diet, and stopped eating their food. Not the best way to lose weight.

The Fat Loss Guru is a plan that can show you a new way of eating. You will lose up to 10 pounds every 7 days . Other differences in this diet compared to others is you will experience permanent & lasting weight loss, increase your energy and eat more and still lose fat.

This plan comes with an Online Diet Generator that lets you choose exactly which foods you enjoy from a huge database of possibilities. After that it computes all of your choices and compiles a list of meals that (if you stick to them) are guaranteed to let you quickly burn fat! The fat burning diet generator is basically idiot proof! It also comes with an ultimate diet handbook that will help you lose up to 10 pounds every 7 days!

So if you're looking to lose weight, not just to look good but to feel good then check out The Fat Loss Guru. By going on this diet you can help fix chronic diseases like diabetes, adrenal fatigue, and hormonal problems. So start a diet that really works and be on your way to a healthier you!

Don't Be Afraid to Eat Your Veggies, Part I

Some vegetables have gotten a bad rap recently. With all the low-carb diets out there the past few years, certain veggies have become unpopular. Well, these vegetables deserve a better reputation then they are getting.

One of the veggies that has gotten on the hit list of veggies is good old-fashioned White Potatoes. White potatoes have the myth attached to them that they can make you fat. When in fact, one medium baked potato has only 161 calories, plus 4 g of filling fiber. If you keep portions sizes in check and eat the fiber rich skin (which most people don't, but should) potatoes can make a satisfying, low-cal, nutrient-rich side dish. And recent studies have also found white potatoes can be benificial in fighting heart disease, lung and prostate disease, and can help lower your blood pressure.

Another vegetable not getting the credit it deserves is Iceberg lettuce. The myth is that Iceberg lettuce has no nutrients. The fact is Iceberg lettuce has plenty of good for you compounds. Only one cup of shredded iceberg lettuce will give you 20% of your daily dose of vitamin K. Iceberg lettuce is also a good source of vitamin A, which is good for your vision. Iceberg lettuce is also a great base for salads, and anything to keep you eating healthy salads, can't be bad for you!

So don't be afraid to eat these veggies, and serve them to your family! Next in part two I'll look at carrots, celery and corn! Stay tuned.

Back To School Tomorrow

Tomorrow is my kids first day back to school. It means the end of summer and end of late nights. And not just for them! I have been staying up late every night because the kids go to bed later in the summer. So then I stay up a little later after they go to bed. Then I have been getting up later in the morning. But back to school means the end of that for them and me too!

My son is starting 7th grade! I can't believe it! And we'll have to get up around 6:30 AM, which will take some getting used to again, for both of us. And then my daughter is starting 3rd grade, and will have to get the bus around 8:30 AM.

No one is going to want to go to bed early tonight, but I'm sure it will catch up to them the rest of the week. And we will all be tired tomorrow. So then it will be back to going to bed early and getting up early. Oh well, that's fine because I'm ready for back to school, even though they're not.

Here's a little poem I found, that I thought was cute for back to school:

'Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town,
The parents were cheering...
It was a riotous sound.

By eight the kids were washed,
And tucked into bed,
When memories of homework,
Filled them with dread.

New pencils, new folders,
New notebooks, too,
New teachers, new friends-
Their anxiety grew.

The parents just giggled,
When they learned of this fright,
And shouted, "Upstairs!

Nordic Berries

My husband works for a company that sells vitamins, and such. He recently brought home something called Nordic Berries, from a company called Nordic Naturals. It says on the bottle they are a "Multivitamin Treat for adults and kids alike." They are basically like gum drops, but are vitamins. They're berry flavored, and actually quite good!

I have never been one for taking pills of any kind. I have always had a hard time swallowing them, ever since I was little. When I was little I was sick a lot and had to take some kind of medication. Well no matter how hard I tried, I could never swallow the pills. My mother ended up having to crush them and she would feed them to me in a spoonful of peanut butter! For a long time the sight of peanut butter made me gag, it is a wonder that I actually like it today.

But anyway these Nordic Berries, my husband brought home are great for the kids. It will be a great way for them to get some vitamins in a way they will take it. Because like me my kids don't like taking medicine of any kind. If they have a cold, they won't take any kind of syrup, or anything. The only thing I have found my daughter (not my son) will take is the Triaminic strips.

So I'm hoping by them taking these vitamins, we can beat some of the colds and bugs they get every year. I might even start taking them too! Check them out if you're looking for vitamins your kids will like.

Plan Your Financial Future with Bills IQ

Bills IQ is an online service that can give you some Debt help. I took the Bills IQ test and my score was a 69, which is a D. Not so good of a score.

What I learned from the Bills IQ test is that, I should look into Debt consolidation so that I could maybe get some Debt relief.


Bill IQ also made me think about how I should think of the future when it comes to my family's and my financial future. Some of the Personal Tips and Advice they gave me after I took the test were very helpful. As far as retirement I should have a plan in place to achieve retirement for my husband possibly even at age 62. If we had a savings and investment plan in place and lived by it maybe my husband could retire by 62.

Also another thing to consider for my financial future is my children's education. I need to start a fund for their future. One good way The Bills IQ test suggested is 529 plan. A 529 plan is a great way to leverage tax savings (gains are not taxed) and many states allow pre-tax dollars to be contributed. I really should look into this.

I learned a lot from taking about the Bills IQ test. I learned that I need to really start thinking about my financial future, not just for me but for my husband and children too. If you want some advice on planning your financial future then take the Bills IQ test today!

PhotoHunt 124 (6) "Wrinkled"

This weeks Photo Hunters theme is wrinkled. Another hard one! Had a hard time coming up with something. Did anyone else have that problem? I will be curious to see what other Photo Hunters come up with for this theme.

But here is a picture of my kids under a tree. This is a cool tree that we found on a hike at Franconia Notch Flume Gorge. Which is actually a really cool place. It is a natural granite gorge extending 800 ft. You climb up a walkway through the gorge. It's a great place to visit. This tree was actually, I think at the beginning of the trail. The roots look wrinkled and gnarled.

Here's another picture of the wrinkled roots of the tree. Unfortunately the picture came out a little blurry.

The Olympics

I usually love the Olympics. But this time around I'm not 100% thrilled with them. It's mostly the way they are being covered by NBC.

I mean come on, how much volleyball do they need to show? Is it me or did they show tons of volleyball? Every time I turned it one it was some kind of volleyball. Last night they had two hours or more of uninterrupted Men's Beach volleyball. I mean I would like to see something else!

They hyped up this BMX bike racing and barely showed any of it. My kids even wanted to see it. But they didn't even show it until almost 11 o'clock last night, so they didn't get to see it. Then they only showed it for about 10 minutes! Only to switch over to volleyball! What's up with that?

And this morning the kids and I were watching it and they started showing the Decathlon. They had on the Discus. We were like cool, I could get into this. About two minutes later they switched to something else and said we'll get back to this later. Well we never got to see the rest. Why can't they just stick with one thing for more then two minutes at a time? (except volleyball)

Any one else feel this way? I love the Olympics but I just feel like they could do a better job on the coverage. Oh well. Maybe next time.

Isn't this picture beautiful? I love this picture. My husband took this. He took it with a Nikon Coolpix camera. Which is actually my son's camera! He has a better camera with me. It really takes beautiful pictures.

Highlights of My Recent Camping Trip

Here's a run down of my recent camping trip to Greenfield State Park, NH

Monday: Raining when we left around noon time. Arrived at campground and was still raining. Set up everything, in the rain. Stopped raining. Made lunch and then was not raining when we decided to go down to the camp store and look at the beach. Store was closed. Looked at beach and decided it was nice enough for kids to go in. Went back and changed into bathing suits (not me - lol.) Kids splashed around in water for about an hour. Went back and was around dinner time, still wasn't raining. After dinner wanted to start a campfire. Started pouring! My husband tried to get a fire going. The wood was wet to begin with and was no use because it was raining to much. Everyone went to bed early. Rained buckets all night! Didn't sleep good because the rain hitting the camper can be very loud.

Tuesday: Woke up after a somewhat sleepless night. Was cloudy but not raining. Had breakfast, I think it started drizzling. Cleared up enough to go to beach later. Kids were able to swim for awhile. Decided to go back up and get lunch. After lunch seemed like the rain was over, nice and sunny. The kids and I rode our bikes down to the beach, while my husband drove the car with all our stuff in it. My husband and I were going to fish, while the kids swam. Everything seemed fine. All of a sudden I heard rain coming, you could here it coming towards you from across the woods. Next thing you know it is pouring! We had tons of stuff spread out on the beach. We ran for the car! I only carried two fishing poles, the kids ran for the car. There was thunder & lightening. My daughter is very afraid of it. My husband had no choice but to go back and get the rest of the stuff. My daughter was crying not just because she was scared of the thunder & lightening but because she didn't want her Daddy to get hurt. He had to go back and get the bikes and she was like just leave the bikes. I don't need my bike, she said I just need my Daddy! He survived and got everything to the car. But was drenched. It slowed down eventually but rained a little for the remainder of the day.

Wednesday: Woke up to partly cloudy skies. Only rained a little in the afternoon. And at least the sun was out off and on! Went swimming most of the day. Only in the low 70's all day. The kids didn't mind, but in order for me to go swimming I need it a lot hotter!

Thursday: The best out of all the days. Sunny and nice all day. One thing happened Thursday that was kind of funny. Thursday night around 1 AM I heard something out side the camper digging around. I woke up my husband who then carefully proceeded to check outside. He got the flashlight and was looking around when he saw some Raccoons! Now mind you we keep some food in what we like to call the "Food tent." We've been doing it for years, we have a little almost like kids tent and we store our food in there. The only time we don't is when we went to places that said there where "Bears." But at Greenfield State park, there is no worry of bears, so we always keep the food in a tent. But this time some Raccoons discovered the tent and actually broke through the top of the tent and were inside eating our food! I guess not only do they like bread, but they appear to like marshmallow's! Because they ate a bunch of them. So my husband had to shoo them off, which wasn't easy and he really didn't want to mess with them to much. But they finally went away. So luckily it was our last night there because the stupid Raccoons ate a bunch of our food and luckily it wasn't at the beginning of the week when there would have been more food to eat. (Also that's the end of the "food tent." Will be keeping the food in the car from now on!)

Friday: Pack up and go home! Sometimes we will get everything packed and go to the beach for a little while on the last day. But usually the kids are pretty tired by that time, and just want to go home. So this time they didn't even want to go to the beach they just wanted to go home.

A few other things we did there: fishing, every morning go down to a pond behind our site and catch frogs! Lots of frogs down there, you can catch them in a net and then realease them. Rented a canoe, and went around the Lake (Otter Lake it's called), fished off the canoe. Picked alot of blueberries. The bushes there were loaded with them, seems like a great year for blueberries!

Unfortunately the weather wasn't as great as it could have been, but we still had a pretty good time. And figures this coming week looks great - in the 80's and no rain. Oh well - that's camping! (Below are a few pictures I took)

My son at the campsite:

This is actually the pond where we catch frogs called Hogback pond:

The Sproutwells get a Dog

I introduced you to the Sproutwells family in their last video. If you remember the Sprotwells are a fruit and veggie family trying to live among humans.

Well now in their new video the Sproutwells get a new dog. The neighbor finds it but then the Sproutwells come along and say they want to keep it.

The daughter asks her Mom if she can keep it. The Mom says yes and they decide to name it Phyto! My favorite one of the Sproutwells is the daughter Ruby. She seems like a fashion girl, and gets what she wants. Also my favorite part of the video is when the dog "does his buisness" on the neighbor.

If you like this video, than you can take the link and put it on your blog. And there is also a mystery as to what these videos are all about. is the one making these. Fresh Funds is a program, where you can accumulate points that can be used to earn prizes, make charitable donations and bid on auction items, like Nintendo Wii Fit & Fun Prize Pack.

PhotoHunt 123 (5) "Colorful"

This weeks Photo Hunters theme is "colorful." Hard to come up with a recent picture for that. Because it hasn't been that colorful around here lately. We have had so much rain! No outdoor pictures would be good for this theme.

So I was looking over some of my other pictures. And saw these:

These were actually taken last month. This is my daughter and her American Girl dolls, along with lots of TY Bears. They are actually my sister's bears, who has a big collection of them. My daughter loves playing with them every time we go to visit my sister. She has many different ones and they are all very colorful!

Stem Cell Technology from C'elle


Stem Cell research has caused various controversy in recent years. People on one side of the issue disagree with the methods of collecting Stem Cells, while the other side argue the medical benefits of Stem Cells.

But now there is a new revolutionary Stem Cell technology from C'elle. This stem cell technology empowers women to safely and easily collect potentially life-saving stem cells found in menstrual blood. This is a non-controversial method of collecting Stem Cells because it is coming from your own body, it is not harming anyone else in the process.

About the Science of C'elle menstrual stem cells is that they have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into other cell types such as heart muscle, cartilage, nerve and bone stem cells. What this translates into is the possibility to treat diseases such as: diabetes, heart disease, stroke, MS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. The benefits of Stem Cells is that it will help millions of people who suffer from these diseases.

Some of these diseases run in my family such as heart disease, stroke and possibly Alzheimer's. If Stem Cells can help cure these diseases and help me and my family from not getting any of these diseases then I would be very interested in the C'elle Stem Cell technology.

If you want to learn more about C'elle for yourself, and hear C'elle Client Testimonials, then I encourage you to visit their website. There you will also be able to purchase your own C'elle kit. And during this limited-time special promotion you can save $200. Purchase C'elle online for only $499. It is an investment into your future. You can be the key to saving your own life!
