Save with the San Antonio Vacation Experience

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SAVE for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Would you like to hear about a great way to plan a vacation? Well I would like to tell you about some information that I have found out about. It is called SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience

Have you ever wanted to go to San Antonio? It is known as one of the nations most affordable vacation destinations. With SAVE you can get more then $600 in savings. You can get savings to places such as: theme parks, animal adventures, top shops and historic tours. You can also get great deals on hotels! 

But you should really hurry, because there are a lot of Limited Time Offers that aren't going to last long! There are some cool packages you can get. I saw one that was "Restaurant Week" or "Six Flags Fiesta Texas" Sounds cool right? 

Summer vacations can get pricey right? I know this having a family of 4, I know first hand about the costs. But with SAVE you can really cut down the costs. I would like to create a sample itinerary to show you the savings. 

First I would like to go on the Alamo Helicopter Tour. Well through SAVE I could get 10% off that. Then we could go to the Alamo IMAX Theater Rivercenter, and we could get a Free Child's admission. Then if we want to go on the Alamo Trolley ride we could get $2.00 off that. Next I would definitely want to go to Sea World San Antonio, and there are multiple deals for savings on that. And lastly you can really get some great deals on hotels. Like the Days Inn at Sea World, SAVE rates from $59 to $149.

Love the look of Shutters

When I look at a house - one of the things I always notice is the shutters. I just really love the look of shutters on a house. Don't you?

There are so many different kinds of shutters to pick from. I just found out about all the choices. One kind is composite shutters. These are long lasting and affordable shutters.

These are long lasting, because they are made of High Density Structural PVC. And they also have aluminum  reinforcement too. These have the look of wood - but are pretty much maintenance fee. These shutters are so functional!

They also come in a lot of different styles and colors! One shutter color I noticed - was a brick red type color. That really stands out to me and I like it a lot. What about you? Do you notice shutters on a house? And do you love the look also?

One other thing I found out is that you can now order shutters online. You can buy exterior shutters and shutter hardware online now! Isn't that cool?

Here's a picture of one of the shutters I liked:

What design & colors do you like? Oh and by the way, I also found out that they ship nationwide. So check out some shutters - they look pretty easy to install too!

Need Some Boating Supplies

Hi guys? It's Summer - right? Do you like to do a lot of boating this time of year?

There is a really cool river around here that is good for boating. I have been there fishing from the shore. And see a lot of boats going by. All kinds of boats too. Like kayaks, canoes, power boats, etc. I really want to try kayaking sometime.

One very important boating supply - is life jackets. I am a huge believer in them. And would never go out in a boat without one. And I am really happy when I see other boaters wearing them. So far - wherever I go, I have noticed most people wearing a life jacket. So that is good news. We even saw some dogs with life jackets! Which is so cute! And probably a good idea, since some of the little dogs might jump over & can't swim that well.

Do you own a boat? And if so - do you wear your life jacket?

They have modern and antique bathroom vanities. And other bathroom products too. I like this one, don't you?
