In Plain Sight

Ah, I smell another HIT coming. USA Network's new original series In Plain Sight debuts June 1st. Mary McCormack plays the role as Mary Shannon. She is a US Marshall who works for the federal witness protection program. Her job is to protect those in this program by doing what it takes. This may sound like a cool job but it has it's dangers thus the reason her family doesn't even know about it. Supporting her in this series is an excellent list of actors. I can not wait for the show to air. It seems like a real winner! Be sure to set your tivo for this one. Can you find Mary? Visit the IN PLAIN SIGHT webpage and view more gallery photos and tell me whether or not you can find Mary.

For the jewelry lover out there

I LOVE my jewelry!! You will never catch me leaving this house without my earrings, a few rings and possibly a necklace. (THIS IS EVERYDAY!) However, when I get dressed up I tend to add a bracelet or two to the mix. I am constantly looking for new jewelry and I am going to be honest....I do not like spending a fortune on my jewels. This website I am about to tell you about (Jewels of Denial) is a great place to find awesome jewelry at low prices. They carry earrings, necklaces, bracelets and pendants. You can choose by color of jewel or categories such as beaded jewels, gemstones, animal jewels and they even carry children's jewelry. My daughter just happened to be sitting next to me as I was "shopping" and she now wants these cute sterling silver pink elephant earrings.
So go ahead and treat yourself to some new jewelry. If you sign up for their email newsletter Jewels of Denial will send you a coupon for 20% off your purchase!

checkbook covers

Someone bought me a cute little checkbook cover YEARS ago and I am sad to say that it has now been retired. The thing is completely worn out! I am searching for a new one today and thought I would share a few of my favorites with you.
All found on ETSY (Where else?)

Now I must decide which one to buy.

~Rap Music~

Yes, I was a rap fan when I was younger. I used to keep up with all the rap stars of course that was until I had kids. Now the cd's in my car resemble something from The Wiggles instead of Snoop Doggy Dog. However, you can still catch up with all the latest rap news with this website. You can read their biography, view photos and see what's next for your favorite star. You can also view the rap lyrics to your favorite tracks. So if you want to view 2Pac Lyrics or Jay Z then this is definately the place to do that.

Well, you could just win one! Here's how: just fill out a very brief survey conducted by Development Dimensions International. DDI is hoping to gain more responses to their survey. This would be a great survey for those of you in the health field. (And if you are not in the health field then be sure to let your friends that ARE know about this) So go ahead and take it. You could win big!

Flip Flops

Flip Flops are definately a MUST during the summer months. Afterall, who wants to put on socks and heavy sneakers? Just grab the flip flops and run out the door. You don't have to worry about them getting wet or ruined because THEY ARE CHEAP and totally replaceable. There are so many to choose from these days so let's take a look at some, ok?

web hosting

Ok, so you have decided to take the plunge and set up your own blog or even a website. Where do you begin? Well, first and foremost you will need a domain name and then you will need to decide which web host to use. This can be a very tricky because there are so many web hosts out there. You may need features that are not offered by some web hosts. I have the perfect site for you....this site ranks and reviews web hosts for you. You can also find useful information such as best blog hosts, free hosting and cpanel tutorials.So take the guess work out of the equation and start posting!

Turkey and shopping OH MY!

Your stomach will be full of turkey and dressing and your lists will be ready.....I am referring to the BLACK FRIDAY shopping you will be doing! What? You mean you don't plan this far in advance? :Snicker: Oh OK, I know Thanksgiving is months away but I wanted to discuss a great website with you so you can at least be more prepared for a full day of shopping when the time comes. The website is and it showcases all the great deals for black friday shoppers. All your favorite stores are there and most of them offer AMAZING discounts and guess what? You will get a heads-up just by viewing the sales before the ACTUAL sale! For example: stores like babiesrus, Circuit City and even TARGET are listed. Now I know everyone loves TARGET, right? So go on over there and check every store out. Save the website in your favorites and be sure to check back before and during those BLACK FRIDAY sales for your 2008 thanksgiving specials. Be sure to tell all your friends and family about this site also. They may just think you are the coolest EVER for giving them this awesome info.

You can't have Lasik surgery because ???

You spent all your money betting on the OTHER DAVID (American Idol)!
Oh, don't fret my friends! Lasik eye surgery will not break the bank as you thought it would. Just think of all the money you spend on eye glasses and exams per year. You could just be saving money by having the surgery.
The surgery is amazing. I have not personally had it but two friends of mine had it done and they swear by it. They mentioned that as soon as the "SUPER QUICK" surgery was over they could see 100% better. It's like they never even needed glasses in the first place. There was no pain involved and the recovery time was unbelievably quick. So, if you are tired of wearing glasses or contacts I highly recommend Lasik eye surgery. Visit the specialists of Lasik in Walnut Creek and stop making excuses for NOT having the surgery.

Well, we have a new IDOL!

David COOK!
How do ya like that?
What were your thoughts on the finale show? I thought they both did amazing and I just knew DAVID was going to win. ROFL!
Did anyone happen to catch him on Jay Leno last night? They showed his guitar hero commercial and I just love it. It was great!
His next stop.....Touring

Summer is near....Time for CAMP!

I bet you are just thrilled beyond belief about summer's fast approach, right? I know I am utterly excited because that means vacations and pool time! My children also attend camp during July and just LOOOOVE it. If you have a summer camp near you then I highly suggest signing your children up for it. They will enjoy their time and you just might enjoy a little "Quiet time" there at the house!
If you are in or near the NEW YORK area then I suggest Circus Summer camp NEW YORK. Your little one could enjoy juggling, balance acts and even trapeze time! (I would like to do some of those myself.) Circus Arts Camp New York has been around for nearly 20 years now. The directors and staff members are fully dedicated to your children. With over 20 years experience you can gurantee that your children will be well taken care of.
Circus Camp New York is for children ages 4-16 and there are different skill groups for each age.
If you have a little acrobat in your family then go ahead and send them to Circus Summer camp. They will enjoy it and come home to show you new techniques that they have learned.


Good ole ebay

~I'm scared~

eeeeeeeeek! Do you like scary movies? I have a love/hate relationship with SCARY MOVIES. I love to watch them but hate to be scared. Yes, I am weird like that!
There's a new scary movie that debuts May 9th. (Which is remarkable seeing that most UNRATED movies never make it to the big screen) The movie is Frontier(s). You can also own the movie on DVD beginning May 13th. This movie is UN-CUT and rated NC-17 (YIKES!)
Do you think you can handle the GORE?
I know some die hard HORROR fans are going to "SCREAM" over this movie.
I viewed the trailer and WOW is all I can say right now....
I am thinking this one may be a LITTLE too scary for me. You can view the Trailer by visiting their website. Also get a little more insight on the movie.
So what is the scariest movie you have ever seen?
Think of that movie and then go view the trailer for Frontier(s). Do you think you will change your mind now? I bet you will. Oh, and I must warn you before you visit the site....Most of the images are not suitable for the little ones so go hide is a dark closet and watch it! lol
