Golden World

When the World economy is unstable there is one way you can invest and protect your investment. Gold and Silver have been used as currency and investment for centuries and have been one of the most reliable investment choices over time. If you are looking for a unique way to mix up your investments you can have the experts at the US Gold Bureau to help you find the best metal investment opportunities available. You can buy gold bullion, gold coins or bars and watch your investment grow. The US Gold Bureau can help you with your precious metal purchase and can arrange delivery or arrange safe storage for your investments until you want them delivered.

Christmas Countdow

It's official, 2 days left until we hit Christmas, we are trying to finish up our shopping and hit Christmas spirit here today. We will hit the mall and the grocery store so we can hopefully spend Christmas eve together as a family and spend time together without all the hustle of the mall. It has been raining extremely hard here for the last 4 days, I have never seen so much rain, if it had been snow it would have been to the roof of the house I'm sure. That might have been fun, a white Christmas for sure anyway. We won't see that this year but hopefully at least the rain will go away and give some decent weather to celebrate the holiday, Merry Christmas everyone.

Giving Back this Holiday Season

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is the season to give back and help support those that are less fortunate, it is especially important to help children at this time of year to have hope and belief that life can be better. Pier 1 is offering two great opportunities to help this cause this holiday season, online you can spread the holiday cheer simply by liking Pier 1 Imports on Facebook, for every new fan Pier 1 gets they will be donating $1 to the Toys for Tots program. Their other program is being coordinated in store through the months of November and December when you can support Toys for Tots by dropping off an unwrapped toy or make a cash donation through the cash register.

I really enjoy shopping Pier 1 Imports for unique and beautiful holiday gifts you just can't find anywhere else.

I found this awesome Snowman dinnerware that will be so much fun for the kids this year, I think Christmas should be all about the kids and anything I can do around the house to make them feel more Christmas Spirit will be my priority. For our house it is all about fun and there is a whole coordinating line of goods to go with my snowman, I think the kids will especially love filling up, or emptying out the snowman cookie jar. Christmas is so much fun and I look forward to every day that we count down to get to our Christmas Day Celebration.

Last minute shopping

Oh my the malls are busy, we went out as a family today to try and finish up our shopping, I can't believe there is only 3 days left. We managed to spend the entire afternoon out shopping up a storm and for the most part the kids were well behaved. There was so much more I would have loved to have gotten them this year but we really just had to stop buying stuff. They will have some surprises for Christmas morning and that is the important thing.

Investment planning

Trying to find the most appropriate form of investment to secure your future can be a challange. It is important to balance your portfolio to ensure your best return on your investment. For many investing in gold has proven to be a very secure way to provide wealth. Gold has been well known as an investment commodity for generations providing secure returns. There are suggestions that having at least 5% of your investments in Gold is a good way to diversify your savings. There are many forms of gold you can invest in, you can buy gold coins, gold bars or invest in gold jewellery. Whatever form you decide to invest with it will be a great choice for your long term future.

Christmas Baking fun

We had a great afternoon after the Christmas parade went by the house it was time to do some Christmas Baking. We made our traditional shortbread cookies and a family favorite cinniman cookies. It was a real family day which we really haven't had in a long time due to our hectic daily lives and it was a lot of fun for everyone. Even the dogs enjoyed themselves and took advantage of some cookie dough that was hanging close to the edge of the counter.

It's Crunch Time

Ok this is it, the final days before Christmas and we need to get as much finished as possible with the little bit of time we have yet. The morning was going to be a good chance for us as all the kids were home from school and we were going to leave them with our oldest but he made some plans to go to a friends overnight so we will now be taking the kids along with us which will make the shopping much more challangeing. It will soon be over anyway so we will make the best of our morning and see where we are after that.

Golden Markets

The markets are going crazy again, how are we supposed to secure our future when the stock market is like a yoyo. There is one commodity that has held it's value regularily over generations and with current market conditions that find new sources of precious metals like silver and gold hard to find there has never been a better time to buy gold. Gold has been rising in value and with assistance from the US Gold Bureau you can access the best sources of gold bullion and coins on the market and have it shipped directly to you or they can arrange for storage until you are ready to take delivery.



A completely inebriated man was stumbling down the street with one foot on the curb and one foot in the gutter.

A cop pulled up and said," I've got to take you in, pal. You're obviously drunk."

Our wasted friend asked, "Officer, are ya absolulety sure I'm drunk?"

Yeah, buddy, I'm sure," said the copper. "Let's go."

Breathing a sigh of relief, the wino said, "Thank goodness, I thought I was crippled."

DEAR MEAT ...(joke)

A man kills a deer and takes it home to cook for dinner.

Both he and his wife decide that they won't tell the kids what kind of meat it is,
but will give them a clue and let them guess.

The kid s were eager to know what the meat was on their plates,
so they begged their dad for the clue.

Well, he said, 'It's what mommy calls me sometimes'.

The little girl screams to her brother, 'Don't eat it, it's an asshole..'

Golden Dreams

With the Anniversary of the Olympics coming up soon everyone is still experiencing Golden Dreams. While it was a once in a lifetime opportunity for many athletes some were lucky enough to achieve their dreams and bring home the Gold. For most of us relistically thinking we could achieve the same goals is a bit far fatched. There are always alternatives and one of these would be to take some time and explore investment opportunities in Gold. There has never been a better time to buy gold bullion, with the current economy lowering value in many commodities Gold continues increase in value and provides a very stable trading opportunities.

What a goof ball

Well what can you say about a face like this he was having a very good time while we were at magic mountain a couple of weeks back. It was a lot of fun for everyone but I think he was definetly having the best time of everyone as you can tell. It was a full day and everyone was very tired by the time we were finished.

scrub sets

I have a friend that is starting Nursing in a few weeks and while she is very excited to start her career she is frustrated with standard Nursing Uniforms because she has a difficult body shape that doesn't work well with standard scrub sets. I recently found this great webite from Blue Sky Scrubs. They have the ability to customize the scrubs to exactly the shape and size that she needed.
I never realized how many options and choices there really were for medical nursing scrubs until I spent some time helping her in her search for the perfect uniforms. There literally is a scrub set for every occassion if you look for it. It would be quite fun and stylish to work in the hospital profession. It has been a long time since I've had a hospital visit but I can remember all the professionals being in basically the same uniform, same color, quite boring. I would have to say that isn't the case anymore with all the awesome scrubs sets choices you would have to make.

Merry Christmas

It's that time of year when the stores start to get so busy, it's funny because not only are the stores busy but everything gets busy. Work seems to be busier, the kids are all busy with their dance and basket ball activities. Next week brings the kids Christmas concerts at school (different nights of course) and a couple of basket ball games. Soon enough we will be blanketed with a beautiful blanket of white snow and will be enjoying a wonderful turkey supper with family over the holidays.
