Since our girls have been young music has played a big part in our household. My husband Rob is a very talented guitar player (I am biased) and music of various styles is heard in our home, and car, on a daily basis. As our girls get older their personal music tastes are starting to form and it’s a bit surprising the different paths they’re taking. Our oldest is into the Linkin Park, Paramore style while our youngest just wants to hear dance music. Me? I could listen to both of those music styles.
I like just about every type of music (just about ;->). It depends on my mood what will come from my speakers. It also depends on my music library, which I’ve found is missing some requests, so luckily I’ve found the site iOldies.com.
This site offers either single or album downloads, CDs, ringtones, even original vinyl albums – if available. While at their site you choose music by era, music category, or artist. You click on what you’re interested in, and it gets added to your cart. You have your own record store right at your finger tips! A feature that I enjoy is that this is also a community of music lovers who want to talk about music, perhaps recommend other artists that you might like as well. So fun!
So glad I found it.

Years ago I made a photo mug of a summer trip to Black Butte Ranch in Central Oregon. It’s one of our favorite places to go and every time I see, or use, that mug I’m reminded of great times with my family. More great memories have been made and I can’t wait to create a few other photo mugs to cheer up my mornings cup of coffee. What mug theme will you create?

Address labels are a wonderful customer service tool if you have a direct sales business (Ex: I’m a Scentsy Consultant :->). While you’re preparing an order for delivery attach your address label to each product and that will make it easier for your customer when it comes time to re-order. With your address labels you can place them inside books that you generously loan and containers that are full of your delicious contribution to a potluck. There are so many uses. Where are you going to use your Free Address Labels?

I am so much more disciplined with my eating habits when the warm weather is upon us. But, once the air turns a bit chilly, and in my case wet from Pacific Northwest “liquid sunshine”, my cravings for salads seem to subside and all I want is pasta and bread.
Oh, and cookies. Oh, and chips and dip. Oh, well, you know. These foods don’t do well for your body, if you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight, so I’m looking for alternatives.
I make a lot of sandwiches in the week for my girl’s school lunches so I’m going in a different direction from the typical sandwich and giving wraps a try. I’ve found a great resource for low carb foods online at The Low Carb Grocery. It offers a full selection of foods low in carb count, which would otherwise be on the heavy side. So far the wraps are a hit with my girl’s, and that makes my shopping that much easier.
I can not believe the difference in my body shape when I cut out high carb foods. And my energy level is higher as well. Now, I won’t be one to pass up fresh baked bread, but I am getting myself back on track and keeping my carb intake low.
How about you? Do you have a love-and-pass-me-the-butter fondness? Or, do you try to avoid carbohydrates?
2. Write a letter to your Valentine. There’s nothing like a heartfelt letter or poem that expresses your appreciation to another person. Reminiscence about the day you met or make a list and label it “all the things I love about you.” Pick some flower petals and sprinkle them into the letter and seal it with a kiss. Tape it on the bathroom mirror, the car steering wheel or anywhere else your Valentine is sure to see it.
3. Create a digital photo album. If you have an iPad apps like Whip (www.whiptheapp.com), by ArcSoft, can help you create a photo album in minutes with up to 24 photos complete with a customized background, captions and music. Afterwards you can share via Whipstream, Facebook or email it to your Valentine. This is a great way to preserve the memories for years to come. Here’s some inspiration to create your Valentine’s day Whip: http://share.whiptheapp.com/s-6AMkMX0u.
Hilton Garden Inns across the United States are featuring the Natural Form® Sleep System with Self-Adjusting Technology® . I was given the opportunity to try this bed and have discovered how wonderful and cozy bed this is!
I always get anxious when staying in a hotel. ‘What if the mattress feels like a hide-away bed?’ It is so difficult to have a productive, pleasant day after sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress. Just think of everything you’ve done to prepare yourself to look fabulous for that family event, or friends wedding, only to look exhausted and have no energy from a horrible nights sleep. It feels like the punched was spiked and you just want to take a nap… at home! When traveling you have your choice of hotels to stay in, why not choose the one that will help you get the best night’s sleep?
The Natural Form Sleep System at Hilton Garden Inns has comfort control dial’s on either side of the bed that let you adjust the firmness or softness automatically to eliminate pressure points and properly support the spine. My husband and I prefer different levels of comfort with our mattress and the Natural Form Sleep System worked really well for both of us. If you change sleeping positions during the night, the bed automatically senses the new position and silently readjusts the sleeping surface to ensure the back is properly supported and pressure points are again eliminated—a first in the mattress industry. There is no noisy pump, motor, or remote control.
Natural Form mattresses are covered with 100% all natural virgin Australian and New Zealand Wool. Natural Form’s wool is 100% hygienic and 100% hypoallergenic. The natural wicking properties of the wool pull moisture away from your skin so you feel warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
(**Disclaimer: I was offered a one-night stay at Hilton Garden Inn in exchange for this review. The opinions are truthfully my own**)
