iLasik Surgery success stories

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have been struggling with my vision for the last couple of years, I really discovered the problem after I returned to work after almost 10 years away to raise my kids. I struggle with blurry vision and wonder what I should do, I have been trying to decide between corrective lens or corrective surgery. I have been doing a little research on corrective surgery and it seems like a good option, I really dread the thought of having to depend on glasses everyday. What really made it hit home was the
iLASIK Video Contest that I found while searching. This contest is open to everyone and there are some great submissions so far that really inspired me to find and consult with a qualified iLASIK doctor. The site even offers a link that will locate the iLASIK doctors in your area. As I mentioned the contest is open to everyone to share their stories on how corrective surgery has impacted their life or could if they haven't had the proceedure yet. The contest is offering some cool prizes including the grand prize of $5000. There are secondary prizes available as well including $2500 HDTV prize packages available for the 1st prize in each category and HD camcorders valued at $199 for 2nd prize in each category. You can also take advantage right now of $20 Amazon card for each video submission you make before the contest deadline. You win just for submitting your story.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas???

It hasn't sunk in yet that in only a month is will be Christmas, for our area normally we would have had a snow or 2 by now and that usually symbolizes for everyone that Christmas time has come. It has been unnormally warm here this fall with only a couple of days that it was even close to freezing so no snow. It is hard to get into that shopping mode without the white stuff so hopefully some morning very soon I will at least wake up to a skiff on the ground to get me in the Spirit.
Merry Christmas

Getting Ready for Game Day

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of henderson bas. All opinions are 100% mine.

Tommorrow is the big day for our family as it is the final race of the season in Nascar, we are still holding out hope for Mark Martin to some how pull off the upset win to capture his first Championship but the odds are against him for sure. We really enjoy our racing, especially this time of year when Football is just getting started and it is also turning cold outside so it allows us to gather around have some fun family time and eat lots of fun Game Day snacks and meals. Tommorrow we don't want to miss a minute of the race so we are turning to one of our favorite "on the run" meals Bistor Crustini, these are delicous pocket meals the all the family love and allows me to prepare a meal quickly in the microwave so I don't have to miss any of the action either. Our household has two favorites the Philly Steak and the Brocolli & Cheese. If your a football fan check out the Crustini website for a chance to enter the "Game Day" contest in which one lucky entrant will win a V.I.P Trip to Las Vegas including airfare, 5 days and 4 nights in a luxury hotel and of course tickets to the Big Show and $1500 CAD spending money to make the most of your experience. Entering is easy you just need a UPC from your favorite Crustini from your freezer and you can enter. This contest is open to all my fellow Canadian Residents and the best thing about it is it's an instant entry contest so you will now immedietely if you won, no waiting for a draw date.

Olympic Torch Relay

Monday we got to all take part in the Olympic Torch Relay as it passed through our community on it's way to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It really was a fun experience with lots of activities for the kids to get involved in while we waited for the big event. Hubby got to actually take part in the relay and carried the torch for 1 segment of the run, it was very exciting for everyone and the kids even got to jog along the sidewalk with him as he went. What a fun time can't wait until the next time Canada get's to host the Olympics.

Financial Planning

Planning for our financial future is one of the most important aspects we should all be concerned with. It takes a good plan to ensure we are financially secure in our later years, it's a fact that people are living longer than ever and it is important to make a plan that will secure your lifestyle after your working years. The best solution is to consult with Las Vegas CPA, a Certified Professional Accountant can assist you in an effective plan to secure your financial future. It is too risky to leave your families financial future to chance to take the time to invest in your future today it will pay off in the long term.

Faster Service

I live on my laptop, it basically starts once the kids are off to school and it will continue most days until I pick them back up at school. I work at nights so I miss most of my favorite shows so to be able to watch them during the day from the comfort of my own laptop is a fantastic service that love. The
charter ultra fast 60 service provides one of the fastest services available on the market today. The service will allow me to download songs for the kids while catching up on my shows, my current service was so slow I couldn't do any more than 1 task at a time.

Christmas is in full swing

With Christmas decoration almost completed I have turned my focus to my shopping. I'm a little later than I usually like to be but we have caught up a lot over the weekend. It was a fantastic power shopping trip but we are now about 75% done with all our shopping. With a few more pays to go before the big day we should be in good shape in time. How are you doing with your shopping experience?

Great vacation specials

I have been dreaming about my dream honeymoon since my husband and I got married almost 10 years ago, we got talked out of going away for our wedding by my family and it is one of the biggest regrets we have about our wedding. We have been so focused on the kids that we always put off our own celebration but now as the kids are getting bigger it is becoming much easier for us to start to think about travelling our selves. We recently discover a fantastic "World Sale" form British Airways they are featuring exciting vacation packages including airfare, hotel and car rental packages to various destinations throughout the world.

Pupp Training

We have been struggling with our Pup the last month or so, it seemed as though we were doing so good with getting him trained but the last little while he has been so difficult. I am getting very frustrated cleaning up little piles and puddles all over the house. I would love to hear any tips anyone would have to help train our little beagle.

Stopping the Fridge Bandit

My hubby and his team from work were trying to save money and get better food choices at work so they bought a fridge for his office and were filling it on an honor system, keeping water filled in rotation and everyone kept their own snacks stocked up. It was working well for a while but all of a sudden everything started to disappear on them. They really enjoyed their fridge but needed an option to protect their things. They searched and found an option at it is a pretty simple box that goes into your fridge and allows you to lock up your special items from the fridge bandits. Hopefully this will curb the bandits and allow hubby and the team to enjoy their snacks again.

Dreaming of a White Christmas

I love my Christmas lights, for me I prefer white lights and this year we are going bigger than ever for us. We put Pine Garland up throughout the house and fill them with white lighting. When we are completely finished this year we will have the entire main level of the house and it is so pretty so far, we need to buy a few more pieces of garland and a couple of sets of lights to finish up. I will come back and post some pictures when it is all done and we have the tree up...planned for Wednesday at this point. I love Christmas decorating.

Christmas is in full swing

Last night after the kids headed off to bed, we got all our Christmas Presents, well the ones we have home so far out and organized. We even have them all wrapped so they can be in our New Closet that we built last week. They can be out of sight from the roaming eyes of the youngsters. We were pretty worried about things but after we got everything organized we think we are not in too bad of shape. We know exactly what we need to get and made a promise to each other that we will not alter or buy extra things from this list this year. This is the year we maintain the budgets and don't get too much stuff.

Christmas Countdown

With Halloween now behind us it is time for us to break out the Christmas decorations. Some people think it is too early to decorate for Christmas already but we love our decorations so we start to put them up already. We always wait until Remembrance day to put up the Christmas tree but everything else goes up over the next week or so. We are adding a lot more decorations inside the house this year, I'd love to have more but the budget doesn't work yet.
