Searching for a new career option

Thinking about a career that can withstand the tough economic times beauty school is a great opportunity to look into . No matter what the economic outlook is it is a given that people will always want to look their best and for many that means regular trips to their beauty specialist. One of the best and growing schools is the Regency Beauty Institute which has grown from 2 schools in 2002 to over 80 schools with plans to grow accross the country. This is a career that has a lot of security if you learn your craft and are able to speak well to people. It can be a lot of fun working directly with people and having them give you their trust in their appearance. Check out more information on the courses and locations at

Frozen Solid

Well today started like a normal day, or so it seemed, it was cold but other than that is seemed ok. Matt took the kids up to school and was surprised when the crossing guard wasn't there as normal, then looking at the parking lot it was totally empty. They tried the door to the school and it was locked up, so they came back home. Listening to the radio we found out that school was cancelled because of the cold. Later in the day I was hoping for a nice hot shower before going to work and was surprised with no hot water, great the pipes from the oil tank were frozen, at least it will give hubby something to do when he gets home from work

Some like it hot

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have been experimenting with our menu around the house the last little while just to mix it up we wanted to have some extra flavor to our food. One of our families favorites is spaghetti and we like to make our sauce from scratch adding fresh ingredients. We recently discovered TABASCO® Original Red sauce, it is made with a simple combination of salt, red pepper and vinegar  and is aged to perfection. The flavor this sauce adds to just about anything is really great and it makes a great addition to our sauce. We also add fresh crushed tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms and hamburger to complete the sauce but the Tabasco Red sauce really enhanced the flavors for us and the kids loved it, I was a little worried that they would find it too hot but they enjoyed it. We also use the sauce to baste our steaks in when they are cooking and even for a dip to increase the flavor of the meat. The next plan is to try making our own Game-Day Party Menu   adding in Tabasco original red sauce to have Pizza Perfected, for the football game this weekend. I've heard there might be a gather of sports fanatics coming over for the festivities, so it will be a good chance for me to try some variations to my traditional pizza's.

I know it is winter based on the calendar but Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on us here. We are waiting for the snow to come and for it to be cold enough long enough for the ski hill to get opened. This was supposed to be the perfect week, everyday below freezing and snow in the forcast. Unfortunetly somehow it warmed up overnight and the large snowfall we were to get today turned to rain, I'm sure this ruined all the work they have been doing at the hills and it will post pone our ski trip again.

Butt out please

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

We are past the baby stage in our house but that doesn't mean we don't have many fond memories from the years of babies. The midnight feedings, diaper changes all those little activities that we remember so fondly. We had 4 babies so it gave us an opportunity to try out all kinds of different products to find what worked the best for us. One of our favorite products that helped us with issues of diaper rash was the Boudreaux's Butt Paste it was a life saver, I only wish we had found it on our first baby instead of the third it is that good of a product. I enjoyed using it so much I had to have different containers of it on the go, which is great because it is packaged in various sizes so I could have my 2 oz tube in my diaper bag and the 16 oz jar could sit at my diaper changing station so we were covered whether we were home or on the go. The butt paste is a really nice product with a pleasant smell and it goes on and cleans up so easy it will amaze you when you give it a try. If you think you might want to give it a try you should follow the link above to get your very own sample pack to try it out for yourself.

Hoping for some snow

We managed a trip to the ski hill last weekend but unfortunetly it really shouldn't have even opened up yet, they only had the bunny hill and 1 run open. It was nice to get out and try our gear for the first time and to get our feet under ourselves though. We were hoping that there might be some extra snow through the week or at least it would be cold enough for the hill to make some snow, neither of those things happened so we skipped our trip out this weekend. It is supposed to be colder this week so there should be a good opportunity to make some snow this week and get to the hill next week with a few runs open....crossing fingers.
