Saturday Six

1. How far from your home is your nearest fire station? Less then 1 mile

2. Have you ever made a call to your local 911 service? If so, how long did it take for emergency personnel -- whatever type you needed -- to arrive? Once, it took them about 10 - 15 minutes to arrive. My daughter also called them once on accident & hung up. They called immediately back to make sure there was no emergency.

3. If you had to choose one of the following, which emergency employee would you want to be: police officer, dispatcher, paramedic, firefighter; and why would you choose that one? I think I could handle dispatcher the best.

4. Take the quiz: What firefighter tool are you?

TV This Week

There has been some decent shows this summer & a few more favorites about to start! This past week, I watched the 4400, Traveler, Kyle XY, So you think you can dance, Pirate Master, The Closer.

Upcoming shows are Eureka & Big Brother 8.

If you haven't watched Eureka yet, it is only Season 2 on Sci-Fi, so it would be easy to pick up. This show is great, even if you aren't into Sci-Fi!

I cannot wait for Big Brother to start up! This season looks really good, even with an Alice in Wonderland themed house. Too cool!

The 4400 just started recently. I have to admit, that first show had me a bit confused. I thought I missed a season for a second. I wish I could have seen the finale from last season before the new season started to refresh my memory.

Kyle XY is a cute show, very interesting.

So you think you can dance is a favorite. I started watching it last year & I think I liked that cast a bit better then this years. I don't have any real favorites yet. I was a…

Friday Fifteen #14

Friday Fifteen #14

My kids have been talking about collections today, rocks specifically. I have collected so many different things over the years, I thought I'd do my Friday 15 on some of the things I either collect or did collect :)

1. Vogue Ginny Dolls (My name is Ginny, will probably never stop collecting these)
2. Barbies/Skippers (Have been loving Barbie dolls since my first doll at around 3! I also collect these for my kids)
3. Dreamsicles (I'm not religious, but I have always like angels, Dreamsicles kind of spawned off that. I haven't bought any in a long time unless I find them for .99 or under at thrift stores)
4. Irish things (My mom was born in England & my grandparents in Ireland. I love the beautiful Irish items you can find!)
5. Stamps (I'm not a huge collector, but I do like to pick them up. It started when I wanted to get some sets for when my daughters were born)
6. Rocks (this was a childhood thing & it was mainly the gemstones)
7. Dolls (I&…

Thursday, June 28, 2007TEXT Thursday-Blog prompt from Tina Here is Tina's Blog challenge...

Summer time is such an awesome time... for both young and old alike!

Do you remember how exciting it was to get home on that last day of school?
What are your favorite summer memories of your childhood?
Is it something you did every summer, or perhaps one summer that stands out in your mind?

I do remember that last day of school, so happy to finally get to relax! My favorite memories are playing on swingsets, and going to my grandma's house to swim. We would get to walk up to Bunzo's to get popsicles, so fun. We pretty much did that every summer. We would also go to Cedar point & kings island every summer. We would stay a week & also hit the airplane museum in Ohio. We always had a lot of fun! We had other vacations as well, but I remember the amusement parks the best. I think we went to Niagra Falls several times, Mackinac Island, Hershey Park &…


I was playing around with my camera & I accidentally figured out how to use my 12x zoom :)

Tuesday, June 26, 2007Topic: Hobbies & CollectingWhat are some of your hobbies? Scrapbooking & Reading
Is there another hobby you wish you had? I wish I could knit or sew
Are you a collector? If so, what do you collect? (ex: stamps, coins, postcards, etc.) Yes, I collect tons of things, too much sometimes. I have actually collected postcards in the past & sometimes still pick them up. I occasionally collect stamps. I collect Ginny Dolls by Vogue, Barbies, Dreamsicles (which I have cut out of buying those), some unicorns and I'm sure I'm missing things.

Cammie's Birthday

We celebrated Cammie's birthday at Chuck E Cheese this weekend with her friends from school. Having a birthday so close to 4th of July is so hard plus being out of school. She had a lot of fun, got some great presents & earned some cool prizes with her tickets!

Safe Web Surfing for Kids

Glubble is a new plugin for Firefox that allows kids to surf the web safely, showing only the best of the web that parents choose to allow. It causes Google and Yahoo search results to show only content from the trusted “Glubbleworld” instead of the entire web. It also has a “child friendly look and feel with interfaces for pre-reading and reading age young children.”

Always use coupon codes!

First let me say that I ALWAYS use coupon codes when shopping online! I just recently found a website that is new to me, Coupon Chief. They offer coupons to over 1,000 stores all over the internet. Checkout the current online coupons they have listed. I have to say my favorite store to shop at right now is Target. For instance, right now Target has a coupon for $5 of $50 or a coupon for free shipping. All you do is click on the coupon you want & Coupon Chief directs you to the webstore & gives you directions on how to use the coupon. You can also sign up for RSS feeds to the site or to your favorite stores. If you haven't shopped at Target online, you are missing out :) It is very easy to navigate, they have a huge selection of the coolest items, shipping is quick, great customer service. Even save your gas money by shopping online & save some extra money using coupon codes! They also have the weekly ad online in case you don't get the paper. When l…

Are you strict about wearing your sunscreen in the summer? Yep, I'm very cautious with the sun

Do you frequently wear sandals in the summer? Any favorites you'd like to share? I LOVE flip flops! I barely wear socks in the summer, love any type of Sandals!

What are a few great books that you've taken along to the beach or on vacation in years past? If you aren't a big reader, what do you do to while away the lazy hours? I'm big into mysteries, I also like taking Magazines. Usually scrapbook related ones :) Favorite mysteries are usually series & I tend to read more from female authors. If I started posting my favorites, this would get very long :)

How do you feel about swimsuit shopping? Love it, hate it, indifferent? What's your color of choice? I don't really mind it, even though each year I seem to start dreading it more. I stick with bikinis & I really like those halter style ones :)
