Planning a Trip

So we're planning a trip back east for this Spring. I spent a lot of tonight trying to figure things out. I hate that finding motels and hotels along the way is so difficult. My favorite hotels are Comfort Inn, I'm not sure why, but I really like them. But for some reason they're not on most of the hotel reservation sites I know about. That leads me to wonder what other possibly great motels or hotels they're not telling me about. And we're not staying in big cities so that makes it even harder. Sure finding a cheap hotel Las Vegas style would be great. But I just want a basic, clean, non-smoking room for a night that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg. Geez! This night has been so frustrating!

Looking to the Future

Lately I've been thinking about the future a lot. I can't wait until we get to move, until we can finally buy a house, settle down, establish roots. I want the dream, you know? I don't have ginormous plans, I'm not looking looking to run a huge company or buy commercial real estate. I just want a decent home and to live in a place I like to live. Am I the only one that searches homes in areas I don't even live? I do this, really. I check listings in cities we like, even though I know we won't be buying for several years still. We've got to save up a down payment first.

This Cracked Me Up!

I was jumping around the internet and I came across this post about What A Girl Wants. It cracked me up! It's just way too true! LOL!

I'm Feeling Old

I was sitting in church today when I had a revelation. I'm a decade older than the missionaries, at least the new missionaries (these are LDS missionaries, they generally go on a mission at 19 until they're 21). A whole decade older...what the heck?!?!?! When did I get so old? Before you know it I'll be shopping for incontinence supplies at the rate I'm going. Please don't tell me I'll turn around and be officially old.

Pop-Up T.V.s

Ok, I just saw the coolest thing. It's a pop-up tv! This is a t.v. that can be hidden inside a dresser or console. What a cool way to hide the t.v. You can make a room look all sophisticated and within minutes it can also be used as an entertainment room. I've never seen these before, but dang they look cool! Now I want one, lol!

Medical ID Bracelets

Do you have a medical condition that requires you to wear a medical ID bracelet? I remember when I was 12 my best friend had diabetes so bad that she had to wear one. What I never realized was there are so many different styles of medical id bracelets. You can get them basic or fancy, in gold, silver or steel. Who knew? So if you have to wear them but think they're just not cute enough, start looking around. There are so many more styles available than I ever knew.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!

Ok, so I'm a day late wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day. Sorry about that! I hope everyone had a Happy Singles Awareness Valentine's Day! Did anyone get anything really cool? Did you give anything really cool? I got a couple of dvds and I gave Josh, or I should say I let Josh download a cd on iTunes. He's just not that into some of the traditional stuff and there's no point getting him golf balls or anything like that because he doesn't play golf. We were really low key about the whole thing. Josie was too young to care and we just got Kenzie a little stuffed frog. How was your holiday?

I was just watching Noggin with my toddler and saw a commercial for a Trike-A-Thon to support St. Jude's. That sounds pretty fun to me. If you want to check it out click here.
