Chocolate Candy Website

Dec 28, 2010

Oh My Gosh.  Have you ever had Sees Candies?  I was introduced to them about 10 years ago when I moved to Austin.  I don't know why I hadn't heard of them before . . . but, growing up on the east coast, I hadn't.

Anyway, I usually buy them (and get samples of their chocolate) at the mall.  It is YUMMY!  Of course, I am a chocolate fanatic . . . I love any and all types.  But, I have to say, Sees is one of my favorites.
If you have never tried them, I (and most people I know) would really recommend them.  You can look to see if they have a kiosk at your local mall, or you can order online at their website.  (Valentine's Day is just around the corner!)  I bet you'll enjoy the yummy goodness as much as I do!

My Facebook Diary

Dec 22, 2010

Last year, I did two blog posts about how I was able to retrieve all of my Facebook statuses and cut and paste them into Word (click here for the first post).  I feel like my statuses do a really good job of documenting my entire year - thus, it was as if I had kept a "diary" - of sorts.  I love that idea!

Last year, I used an application called "My Year in Status."  A few days ago, I went back to that site to do what I had done last year - pull up all my statuses and cut and paste them. I was sorely disappointed by what I found. 

First of all, not all of my statuses were available - most of January and February (except 3 statuses) were missing.

Secondly, I could not longer "copy" my statuses.  It just wouldn't allow me to do it.  Since I have hundreds, if not thousands, of statuses, I certainly was not about to retype them all - thus, I had to find another program.

And, I did that.  The new application is called "Archivedbook."  Not only did they seem to have ALL my statuses, they also had my statuses from the last six months of 2009 (in case you didn't get them last year). 

I was able to copy them and paste them into Word - they took up 141 pages!  YIKES!!  I had a lot to say this year!

I hope you all enjoy saving your statuses and making your own diary of 2010.  I know I'll be glad to have it for years to come

Car Connection Website

If you're in the market for a new car, you'll want to check out the Car Connection website before you make that big purchase!  They are a great resource on all cars.  They review all the cars out there - giving not only expert reviews, but also user reviews. 

For example, if you were looking to buy a Buick Lucerne, they would tell you their overall rating of that vehicle is a 7 out of 10.  They also have 4 expert reviews up on that vehicle and they have links to where you can go to do some more research on that vehicle. 

If you research the Hyndai Accent or the VW Gti, you'll find not only reviews, but also photos of the car.  They also link you to the official site for those vehicles.

I don't know about you, but I always want to do my research before I make a large purchase and when I say "research" - I mean getting more info from a variety of sources!

Bring Back the VCR!

Dec 14, 2010

I am looking for the person out there who can explain to me how we have the technology to put a man on the moon and allow me to “chat” online with a friend who is simultaneously flying on an airplane and yet, no one has come up with a DVD that does not SCRATCH!!!
What’s up with that?

Do the creators and distributors of DVDs not have children?

Do they not know what a child is capable of DOING to a DVD in a nano-second?

Our cabinet is full of DVDs – all which we (or someone we know) spent $15-$20 on and none of them work! And, rarely do I get a movie from our local Redbox or Blockbuster Express that doesn’t have a few skips of its own, too.

Do you know how frustrating it is (and, I’m guessing most of you do) to put in a DVD for your kids, only to have them tell you 10 minutes into it, “Mom! It’s skipping” or “Mommy! It’s not playing!” GRRRR!!!

That is why I am going back to good, ol’ VHS tapes.

Yes, I said it. I’m out of date. I’m out of style. But, I am also out of patience.

Lately, I have been shopping at Goodwill a lot – and you know why? Not because I think they have great deals (to be honest with you, I think Goodwill is too expensive –but that’s a whole other blog post). No, it’s because they sell VHS tapes for FIFTY CENTS!!! I can’t rent a DVD at Redbox for that. AND, I can keep the VHS tape forever and ever. AND, that VHS tape will probably outlive me! Those things are hard to break!

I have found some great VHS movies for the kids – ones we didn’t yet own, such as Toy Story and ones we did, like Annie, which came in DVD form and is thus useless to us now.

A man in front of me in line today at Goodwill looked at the VHS tapes I had in my hand and said, “Do you really still own a VCR?”

“Yes,” I told him. “I do – and I will never, ever get rid of it!”

That is, until someone (is anyone listening out there?) finds a way to make DVDs scratch-proof!

24 Christmas Photo Cards for $2.49

Here's a great deal to get some really inexpensive photo Christmas cards!  You can get 24 cards for $2.49 - SHIPPED!

1.  Register here for a new SeeHere account.
2.  Create a 4x8 flat photo card
3.  Select 24 cards
4.  Use the promotion "25cards" when you checkout
5.  The cards should be FREE and shipping will be $2.49

Now, I do realize that I said "24" cards and the promo is for 25.  Do you know why???  Because, if you add that last card, to make the order 25, your shipping cost rises to over $8!!  Thus, don't add that last card and your cost will be only $2.49!


Family Photo: And All My Kids Smiled at the Same Time

Creating our family Christmas photo cards, and writing the annual letter that goes along with them, is one of my favorite activites of the holiday season! 

Unfortunately, TAKING the family photo is generally not the fun part.  I have three children, with the youngest two being two and four years old.  Getting all three kids to smile simultaneously, while looking at the camera, is nothing short of a miracle. 

If I end up with one family photo where no one is crying or squirming out of grasp, I am a happy woman!

This year, though, we really lucked out!  I not only got one GREAT family shot, but THREE - yes, count them, THREE - additional, fantastic photos of ALL three kids together!

So, what do I do???  How do I choose which card makes the "cut?"

Decisions, decisions . . . I have lost sleep over this!  And then, I realized, I can use ALL FOUR photos! 

I quickly visited Shutterfly's website and reviewed their holiday cards and various options.  I loved almost all of them, but I think I have found one that will suit my needs.

I'm posting a photo of my favorite card design - though this is not my family in those photos - I still need to order my cards.

I can't wait to get my Christmas cards mailed to me an have them shipped out - hopefully, this year, BEFORE Christmas!

Weight Loss Website Review

Dec 1, 2010

It seems that I am constantly seeing commercials on TV or hearing ads on the radio for weight loss pills.  Don't you ever wonder if they work or are just scams?  I know, I do.  I recently came across a website that might help you distinguish between the various products on the market and learn more about each one.

The site is called Shop Best Diets and they explain to you how weight loss pills work and which are the best weight loss pills on the market.  In addition, they have a team of weight loss experts who details various diet plans, healthy meals and tips for losing weight.

If you are considering making weight loss your News Year's resolution (again) this year, you might want to check out their site.  It's always better to begin a new task (especially one as daunting as losing those extra pounds!) with knowledge on your side!
