Did You Know Where Some Women Relax After Work?

Did you know where some women relax after work?

I have never gotten my hair cut in the evening before. So tonight when I went into the salon, I was surprised when I was offered a glass of wine! I have always been offered something to drink during the day when I've gone, some water or a soda. And since I do not drink alcohol I was rather taken aback by the question! Then I looked around and noticed how many of the ladies had their glasses of wine! I just knew my neighbors would be happy to have that glass of wine for me.

When I was checking out I was asked if I wanted to make my next appointment for about 6 or 7 weeks away. I said no. And then mentioned that would be just about the time my son leaves for college. The stylist told me she would have that glass of wine waiting for me when I next come in!

Did You Know About the Tabernacle Experience?

Did you know about the Tabernacle Experience?

The Tabernacle experience is coming to Houston, TX and I just may make it over to see the mock up. Brought by First Colony Church, a life sized full scale replica of the Old Testament tabernacle is available for tours to see just what the Israelites moveable worship area was like.

The interactive, audio-based tour will cost $5 per person. Tours start from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. June 24-28 and June 30-July 3; also from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 29 and from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on July 4. The tour  takes about 45 minutes. Large groups can schedule in advance for morning tours, beginning at 9 a.m. Tour groups will receive a discounted entrance fee. To inquire about group arrangements, please go to

Did You Know About the Urban Look?

Did you know about the "Urban Look"?

My son is a bit partial to the "urban look" so when I heard about an online source offering urban clothing, I was prepared to find oversized, baggy, a bit sloppy looking clothes. I was pleasantly surprised to find fitted Levi's jeans, ecko brand shirts and shorts (with belts!) and even some Timberland shoes and there are lots of good specials going on! So while I am not 100% crazy about the look, I do admit I found some decent looking clothes on this site, and none of the models had their "pants on the ground"!

Did You Know a Good Father's Day Gift from an Infant?

Did you know a good father's day gift from an infant?

I was looking for an idea to give to the father of the baby that I keep each day. For Mother's Day it was pretty easy-I just put together a slide show of the baby doing day to day things. But I just didn't know what to do for daddy. I did a hand print card but wanted a little something more. I found a cute idea online using candy bars. Heres how ours turned out.

Mr. Goodbar="Because you are so GOOD to me"

Payday="Because you WORK so hard"

Almond Joy="For all the JOY and laughter we share"

M&Ms="I love you More & More each day"

(label on the base says "to my SWEET daddy"

Did You Know About a Spending Fast?

Did you know about a spending fast?

I found this article about a "spending fast" rather interesting. And after this week of buying items to get the kids ready for summer camp, I am in serious need of a spending fast. And with college looming on the horizon, a spending fast could only help bulk up the bank account so we can funnel it to the college. I think a spending fast might just be in order....

Did You Know Volleyball Season is Right Around the Corner?

Did you know volleyball season is right around the corner?

My daughter starts her volleyball season next month. That means in the next few weeks we will need to stock up on injury prevention items like ankle braces, first aid tape and knee pads. These are all important to most any player as they can offer support and prevent injury. I came across the donjoy rocketsoc which looks to be a pretty good ankle brace providing support and allowing movement. It is available in three styles (lace up, wrap around and wrap around drytex.)  I am sure these are something my daughter will want to try. Trust me, injury prevention is MUCH cheaper than treating the injury and the lasting effects of injuries.
