If there’s one thing about snow…

It definitely inspires you to blog! Being snowed in definitely does not leave you with a lot to do. As I type this, at a Panera Bread, the parking lot is still filled with piles of snow that are eight, ten and even fifteen feet high. At home, our entire yard is covered in two, three and four foot snow drifts. Our swing set is half-buried, and God only knows where our picnic table went to. And Mother Nature isn’t done yet. According to Accu Weather, we’re due to get another 8-12″ over the course of the next three days. Yay. Not. But it gives me a good opportunity to blog, write up product reviews, write articles on baby shower games, etc. I’m too busy during weather like this to come down with cabin fever!

For those of you who like making money blogging, have you checked out Sponsored Tweets? It’s just what it sounds like — monetizing your Twitter account! Have at it! I’ve already reached the $50 cash-out three times, and I’m currently $.30 away from cashing out a fourth time!

Professional clogs

I used to snicker when I saw people wearing clogs. But now that I’m older and have days where I’m just interested in relaxing and being comfortable, I can definitely see the appeal of professional clogs. My ideal pair of professional clogs would be fur lined and probably a dark brown suede in color. They’d also have a slight heel, so I could wear them for work or for play.

I actually have a pair of clogs that I love. They’re Mudd clogs, butternut brown suede on the outside and cream sherpa-lined on the inside. I’ve had them since January 2005, and even though one of the seams has opened up along the top of the right shoe, they’re both still perfectly functional — and still quite comfortable!

Do you have a pair of shoes that you just can’t part with?

Save money on weight loss

If there’s one thing I have learned about the internet, it’s that there’s always a way to save money on a purchase. Whether you buy certain items to qualify for certain discounts, or you purchase something on a certain date to get free shipping, or you use coupon codes found on other blogs or on forums, there’s almost always a way to lower the total price you pay.

So let’s talk about saving money on weight loss. First, purchase high quality meats, vegetables and lean sides. While pricer than cheaper, poor quality meats, veggies and sides, they are nutritionally superior, and are almost always infinitely more satisfying for your appetite. And if you do buy weight loss products online, such as HCG for weight loss, shop at hcgsupplies.com, then use coupon code thankyou to save $15.00 off a purchase of $250.00 or more!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

So, it’s Valentine’s Day. And nerd that I am, I’m sitting here blogging. But, and no offense to my wonderful husband, I don’t think I could possibly spend every waking moment of Valentine’s Day celebrating it. So, what are our plans for today? Well, we’re going out to dinner tonight. I’m currently fighting off pneumonia, and we have like three feet of snow outside, so we’ll probably keep things pretty low-key, minus our dinner out later. As far as gifts go, I have something nice for him, and I hope there is some personalized jewelry for me. ♥

We have kids, and we also celebrate Valentine’s Day with them. We give them candy and little chocolates, and earlier this weekend my daughter and I made heart-shaped rice krispie treats, and both my daughter and my son decorated sugar cookies with Valentine’s Day themed sprinkles.

What do you do for Valentine’s Day?

It’s almost here! Are you ready?

With Valentine’s Day less than twelve hours away, I bet you’re definitely hearing the tick-tock of the clock if you haven’t purchased a gift yet. Man, I’m bad with last minute gifts, but even if I don’t wait this long to get a gift for the one I love! For the record, I got my husband a fabulous ThinkGeek hoodie that I’ll know he’ll love the look of and be quite comfortable in, a card, and I baked him some homemade goodies. We’re also going out to dinner at a local restaurant that we first tried last fall.

If you’re in a bind for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, consider the gift of titanium! Titanium rings are stylish and are always in fashion. They’re available in numerous styles and designs, so no matter what your guy’s tastes run to, you’re bound to be able to find a ring that complements his style perfectly! Good luck, and happy shopping!
