Purple Bearded Iris

 I started with a couple of this Purple Bearded Iris and now I have a whole row at the side of our house.  It's a very low maintenance plant and when it blooms, it's heavenly both for the  looks and smell.

Flight Line

Finding a great deals on flights, hotel accommodations, and transportation arrangements when traveling.  We had a really good deal when we went for a week-long vacation last year.  We got  all inclusive deals  online and it was way cheaper that we anticipated.  We booked our trip  few months earlier when we found a package deals that can't be passed.
If you are looking for a low cost deals on Malaga Holidays, you should check out Flight Line.  They have  malaga flights that are  affordable  and suit to anyone's budget.  It is nice to  find  websites such as Flight Line where you can browse different  options on vacation deals.  This gives the customers find the  right  price of the  flights and other accommodations on time and in the right price.

Careerbuilder.com

 I know that right now even though the economy seems to be getting better there are still millions of people out there without jobs that want jobs. There are lots of things that a job seeker can do to prepare when they are on the market and willing and ready to work. The first thing they should do is dust off their resume and make it look great. You will want to make sure that any accolades are highlighted and any gaps in employment are displayed but downplayed. The next step is getting your resume out there to recruiters and hiring managers. 

A great way to do that is to upload your resume to CareerBuilder.com. You can use direct tv internet to get to CareerBuilder. The next step after that is to apply for jobs that you think you are qualified for and would be interested in. You don’t want to apply for just any and everything because that is counterproductive. Spend plenty of time searching the internet for jobs that are a good fit for you so that you can hopefully stay in it for a long time in the future.

Tulip Bulbs

 I bought two boxes of tulip bulbs last year but forgot to  plant it before winter.  So I have to wait until September before I could  plant this.  I hope they would grow so I'll have some tulips next year.

Grind Boxes

I didn't know that there are so called grind boxes that help skate boarders improve their tricks.  It said that this is  a great help for beginners who are just starting to learn skateboarding.  I can't wait for our little man to show interest on this kind of stuff.  I would be worried sick lol.  Speaking of an angel, he is now calling me so he could ride his bike.  Oh boy!

Bridal Shower

Hubby and I  have been married for almost nine years now but I can still  remember the day my boss and  my close friends threw   a bridal shower for me.    It was held in a  private resort and it was so much fun.  I never experienced attending  a bridal shower before so I did not have any idea.  It was so nice of my boss though, she organized it and  we had a blast.  I still have the  naughty gifts that they gave during the  event  hehehe.  

If you are throwing a bridal shower  for your friend, daughter, or to anyone that you  know, you should check out the bridal shower invitations at Invitation Box website.  There are different available designs that you can choose from depending on how you like it    think that  having a bridal shower  relieves  some stress off the bride-to-be's mind.   With a lot of  things  to think about  to a wedding, a bridal shower is  a must for the bride.  To  have a fun night or day before the wedding is a great time for the female and her  close female friends and family.  

I will try to  scan some photos tomorrow about my bridal shower and upload it here in this post.    It's nice to reminisce  such fun times, it still gives me giggles whenever I think about it.    But anyhow, the above mentioned website will give you the edge in  designing an invitation that would fit  your taste and style.  The pricing is affordable and would surely  fit your budget.  It's funny whenever  I told my daughter about  my wedding, she would always get serious and would ask me if she could wear my wedding gown  if she gets married.  Sometimes, it  shocks me that she thinks about those stuff at a young age lol.  But I am glad that  I  brought my wedding gown here because I got to show it to the kids.

Curly Ferns

I love to see ferns when they are just starting to grow because their leaves/stem are curling.

Fire Extinguisher

Do you have a fire extinguisher  at your home?  We don't have one but  come to think of it, I think that it is  an  important thing to have especially if you have kids like mine whose curiosity is in full force.  I looked up the prices of fire extinguisher online and it wasn't that bad.  It is actually affordable.  This water Fire Extinguisher only cost £28.50 .  My daughter's school always conducts a fire drill annually and they get to learn  important things on what to do during fire and how to avoid it.  I find it necessary for the children to be aware of this  important  subject.

Discount on Disney Tickets

As the summer time approaches, the kids keep asking us where are we going to spend our summer vacation. We had a nice summer vacation last year in Disneyworld and they want to experience it again.  We bought a park hopper last year  so we got to see   four  parks in Disney World.  We did  not have much time to explore  all of the attraction because of time constraints but overall, we had a blast.  Since both of my husband and my friend's husband were former military  men, we got the ticket very cheap.
My husband mentioned that  we could take  the kids to Disneyland  if we go for a major vacation again but I told him that we shouldn't do it this year.  Although we can get affordable disneyland tickets, the  pocket money for  food and lodging  will be a major  concern for me.  I want to  pay off the loan we made when we had our  porch built last year so I want to finish that first  before we take another big vacation.  If your family  is planning to go to Disneyland or Disney World this year, you might want to check out the ink I have provided above.  You can find  discount on Disney tickets from their  website.

Sunlight


I took these shots using my Samsung Galaxy phone one morning when I walked my daughter to school.  I did not like the first shot because it had my finger   blocking the whole view so I took another one.  I like the line that the  sunlight created on the photos.

The most creative kinds of Mother's day presents

When it comes to choosing the gifts for the seemingly endless people that are on the list of our friends and family, the process of choosing the gifts that we are going to give can be one of the most frustrating experiences of our lives. During any of the many number of holidays in which gift giving is popular, like Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries, we are obliged to do things like fight all of the crowds going to the store, and once you get there, there is a greater than likely chance that you will not even find the specific items that you are looking for.

Part of the problem goes back to the stores, and the fact that when you have massive crowds of people, such as the stores experience during the holidays, the shelves get messy, and disorganized, and the salespeople who work in the store become more and more difficult to find, because there are so many people who need their help. Even on holidays such as Mother's day, it is difficult to get all of your goals accomplished. If you look closely at these stores, you will see all kinds of different displays full of items that the store is telling you that you need to buy in order to make the other person happy.

One of the best ways to get away from this kind of mentality, and be more creative with all of the different gifts that you are going to be giving, especially when it comes to giving gifts to your mom on Mother's day is by creating different kinds of Mother's Day gift baskets, which can be filled with all of the different kinds of things that your mom will like.

The most creative mother's day gift baskets are going to include different things like gift cards to your mom's favorite store, or things like specialty food items that are her favorite. If it is something that she would not buy herself, it will more than likely be a good idea for you to get for your mom. Everyone likes things that they will not buy themselves, because it shows a certain level of creativity, and it also shows that you care about them as much as they care about you. Often times, this is the most important part of choosing your gifts that you buy.

Often times, moms seem to put themselves last on the list. This is one of the reasons why it is so important for people to remember their moms, and all of the things that they do for them. The moms themselves more than likely would never ask their kids to do this for them, but it is something that is important for them to do what they can to help them out as much as possible, and at the same time, do as much as they can in order to make their lives as easy as possible, because they did the same for us.
