Just got off the phone with my mom and I am pretty sure we have our “work-out days” all set now. We are both going to start at Curves on Tuesday then will work out again on Thursday morning and Friday morning. I KNOW it is going to be hilariously funny. I have gone to a gym before and have used machines similar to the ones we’ll be using at Curves, but my mom has never gone to a gym. Her favorite mode of exercise is walking, no equipment required. She’s already saying that she’s going to be the clown of the bunch and I’m sure she’s not lying:) Should be interesting. I’ll keep everyone filled in on our antics as they happen.

I found out a few weeks ago that my cousin is pregnant with her first child so I have been on the lookout for all things baby. I came across this wonderful website that sells all kinds of Upscale Baby Gifts & Unique Toys. Modern Crib Bedding, Designer Clothes, Jewelry & Natural Skin Care are among the other items Spiffy Baby sells.

They have a great search feature where you can find items according to a certain category. Shop by price, whether or not it is for a boy or girl, even by age! This is the best! They also have a baby registry where the mom (or dad) to be can sign up and list what she needs for the new baby. I am going to tell my cousin about this feature. I am sure she will find several things she would like.

I think my favorite part of this website though is their monthly Spiffy Baby contest. All you have to do to enter is send them a picture of your beautiful baby then Spiffy Baby members, friends and family vote on their favorite one. And they have prizes up to $50! Now what new mom couldn’t use $50?

Spiffy Baby also offers a great parent resource center. This is in blog format and talks about everything from the best baby gifts to buy to the “working dad’s perspective” on a new baby. If you are a new parent, I highly recommend “Spiffy Baby Talk – where one savvy parent meets another”. It’s a fantastic way to find out everything you need to know about parenting.

So, hubby is heading up to Michigan tonight and won’t be back until tomorrow. He’s going up to pick up the truck he purchased. Last weekend, him and my son went to Evansville IN for a boy’s night out and the weekend before him and I were in Louisville KY. Hmm, I think he needs to stay home for awhile. What do you think? Well, that isn’t going to happen because he’s already got plans for next weekend too, another trip to Michigan and then a basketball game in Indy. Guess it’ll just be the kids and me tonight and tomorrow. I’m sure we’ll find something fun to do. And I KNOW next weekend, my daughter and I will have fun. It’ll just be us girls so we’ll have a blast. We always do:)

Yesterday I was able to visit with my best friend who is home for a visit from Iowa. She brought her three kids (ages 5, 4 and 2) and I can’t believe how much they’ve grown. They’re not babies anymore! I also can’t believe that she drove almost 400 miles in her little car with three kids. They were all pretty loud:) I can tell I’m not around little kids anymore because I was deaf by the time I came home. It was fun though and I can’t wait for them to come home for another visit this summer. By then I’ll have the swimming pool installed and they’ll be able to come here for a swim. That’ll be interesting, I’m sure.

Being self-employed means that we don’t have all the benefits as other employed people do, like insurance that is paid for by your employer. For the longest time, my family went without Health Insurance and I was afraid every day that something bad was going to happen. Someone was going to get sick or hurt, end up in the hospital costing hundreds of thousands of dollars and we’d be completely wiped out financially.

After much searching, we found a plan that was both affordable and the coverage that we needed. We found our insurance after hearing an ad for it on the radio, but you can also find places online too. Click HERE to get a quote for home, life, health or auto insurance fast. Check it out today!

Your Theme Song is Back in Black by AC/DC

“Back in black, I hit the sack,
I’ve been too long, I’m glad to be back”

Things sometimes get really crazy for you, and sometimes you have to get away from all the chaos.
But each time you stage your comeback, it’s even better than the last!

Yep, this one fits me really well.
