Heading out the door for the day I knew that it would be a jam packed day. I knew that it was going to be busy because of all the work that I had to do at the office, but then after I left there I knew I would need to hurry home. Thankfully when I reached the office that day I could see that the workload was going to be light. Hopefully my boss would let me sneak out a little early, but it was going to be up to him.
After the third meeting of the day and thinking that I was going to pull all of my hair out I knew that it was going to be a challenge to make it through the day in time to leave the office and get home. However, I knew that my wife would be waiting for me and if I was late in picking her up we would miss the Jazz game.
Speeding out of the office later on that afternoon I looked around the house. Seeing that my wife was already home and ready to go I changed quickly. That is when I noticed that we still had to set the Adt Security systems before leaving for the day. After doing that we left the home and headed down to the game knowing that our house was safe.

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham
There are many safety precautions that everyone should take during the holiday season. I always follow a few simple steps to ensure that my Christmas is a truly jolly one. One tip that you could make use of is to set your home security alarm from ADT home systems before you leave to do any shopping. This tip might seem simple, but you'd never believe how beneficial it really is. Another tip that I personally always use is to not go out if it's snowing. You might also want to refrain from driving at night if it's recently rained. The rain will actually freeze over and turn to ice. It can be very dangerous to many people on the road.
Obviously, another tip to follow would be to watch the stove when you're cooking anything for the holidays. This might seem like a no-brainer, but it's amazing how many people will burn and overcook things. In fact, it's not uncommon to start a fire if you're planning to deep fry your turkey. I always sit in the kitchen when I'm preparing any holiday feast. This not only protects the home from a potential fire, but it also helps me to keep an eye on something so that it doesn't burn or overcook. By following a few simple steps, you'll be sure to have a safe holiday every single year.

I was born and raised in Texas and after college I just couldn't imagine living anywhere else besides Texas, so I stayed here. This year when I started thinking about what kind of gingerbread house I wanted to make for the holidays, I thought that I should make a gingerbread house that's innately Texan. One thing came to mind and I thought that The Alamo would be perfect.
Even though I basically know what it looks like, I went online to find pictures of it and figure out how to make a gingerbread version of it. When I was looking up that stuff, I found this Austin clear 4g online offer that sounded really good and I signed up for it for our home internet access.
I think that this may have been one of my best gingerbread house ideas ever because once I got it all put together, it looked so great! I think that my husband, whoos a huge history buff was also very impressed with my execution. Which I did try to make it as historically accurate as possible.

Through the years one actor continues to be a star in my eyes and that is John Wayne. He was born Marion Robert Morrison in 1907 and he has a long list of accomplishments to his credit as an actor. He played the lead in 142 of his film performances with numerous awards given. One of my favorite films from John Wayne was True Grit which he won a Best Actor Oscar in 1969. He made so many good films picking just a few out would be tough from this great man. The black and white films he made are some of my favorites as well.
There are many things that made John Wayne the actor stand out for me, but most of all he always did the right things in his films. My dad introduced me to him in a movie called She wore a Yellow Ribbon and I was hooked forever. When I find out a John Wayne movie is on I watch it on satellite television from www.directstartv.com. It seems every weekend or during the week at least one John Wayne film is on. My kids are getting older and they have started to discover John Wayne. He was one guy that transcends time and continues to be very popular even today.

I'm really looking forward to some of the black Friday shopping this year. I plan to do most of it with my brother, and then a bit with my girlfriend also. I have already been searching around on some of the deals online and in local stores and have been seeing some really nice deals.
One of my main things I am looking for this year is a really good deal on a flatscreen. I have seen quite a few nice ones at Wal-Mart and the prices seem to be really good. So that's probably going to be one of my main stops this year. Another major thing on my list is a diamond engagement ring for my girlfriend . I haven't really figured out where I want to get that from. Not sure what kind of rings, Wal-Mart would carry or what kind of warranties they would have.
So I was thinking maybe zales or maybe Kay jewelers. I am sure that one of them would have to have a good deal on a nice ring with as much business as they do they have to have some good warranties, and everything should be certified. Anyway, hope everyone has some good shopping experiences and be sure to set your home alarms (CLICK) remember this is the time of year for thieves.

Anyway, before we decided to accept credit card offer, we did some comparisons with most credit card companies; we wanted to make sure then that we choose the perfect credit car for us. Someday, our son would gonna need a student credit card when he goes to college, and for mission, and when that time comes, it is comforting to know there is perfect student credit card waiting for him. A Student American credit card that is secure with 0 interest rate on top of instant approval is what we call perfect credit card for him.

When I'm off of school for Christmas break, I'm going to go and visit my friend who's living in London right now and I can't wait! I've never been out of the country, much less to London before, so I'm really excited about it. But I'm kind of afraid of flying so I'm going to try and do my best to distract myself from being up in the air for so long.
I was trying to find a really good, long book to read on the flight and was looking online for one when I saw some stuff about how to bundle clear internet and ended up doing just that for my apartment at college after I got the approval from my roommates.
I was going to go for an actual book, but instead decided to download a Christopher Moore audio book because I thought that it would help to lighten my carry on load. It's going to be cold in London and I need all the packing room I can get! IÕm also going shopping when IÕm there so IÕm going to try and pack a little light.

Just when I started feeling like there was no other way to watch TV, TVbyDirect introduced me free, On Demand TV. Just to let you know, it is amazing. For those that watch programs when you want on the internet, it gives you that freedom with the luxury of viewing shows on your television set. No more scheduling or having to wait for your favorite movies or missed shows to rerun, with a click of a few buttons, those shows are now available anytime you please.
Even on days that my family and I are at school or work or going out, we can always check Free on Demand and view every show or movie we wanted to see without having to set up the dvr or vcr in advance. And this way I get to watch any movies that I've wanted to see even though I didn't even know that the movie was playing on TV in the 1st place. What a time saver! Before, I'd spend quite a lot of my time browsing through the guide looking for movies I may want to record and such. Now, I don't even have to bother with that stuff. All I have to do is just go to the on Demand menu and thumb through the content under the category that I'm looking for.

1. While the cat's away the mouse plays.
2. You look fabuloso!
3. Children are heritage of the Lord.
4. I rest and relax when I get home from work or shopping or what have you.
5. This may seem odd, but my feet don't hurt when I wear crocs instead of walking shoes when walking/running.
6. Being prepared for a busy weekend and that seems like a fine idea to me!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to practice and prepare for my talk for church on Sunday, tomorrow my plans include help clean the chapel, go trick or treat with my son at church and Sunday, I want to rest and relax after church!

Making apple cider has always been one of my favorite fall activities, with jumping in freshly raked leaves coming in as a close second place. This year, I decided to get some apples from a local orchard to prepare the cider with.
On an early afternoon in late September, I piled into the car with some lunch and great CDs for the drive, set my home security alarm I found at Securitychoice.com, and began the three hour drive to the nearest apple orchard. While I drove, I enjoyed the incredibly beautiful scenery of the changing leaves, as well as the trees that had already started to shed some on the ground below.
Upon arriving at the orchard, I was amazed by how many people had apparently shared my idea - the parking lot was nearly entirely full! I found a spot near the back, and made my way into the orchard. Once I got inside, I realized there was actually a festival going on inside.
It turns out that I had come to the orchard on exactly the right day. The festival was a celebration of their 50th anniversary, and they had all of their products and apples on sale for 50% off. I gathered many delicious looking apples, as well as a few pre-made bottles of their apple cider. The day I picked was truly a wonderful coincidence.

Oh yeah, we're in Halloween costume frenzy at my house. Each one of the kids has been unusually decisive this year, and I am finishing costumes for (from oldest to youngest child): a bathing beauty, a fireman and a princess. Let it be noted that my youngest is on her third year as a princess. What she lacks in originality, she makes up for in passion for her topic!
I've also finalized my plans for the big night. Tradition demands that the playgroup does the neighborhood together. The kids seem to have more fun if there is a big group, and I've found multiple moms mean there's always someone to pull the wagon of tuckered toddlers or chase the one child who must be first to the end of the block. I'm usually the chase-mom as my son fancies himself the Halloween alpha dog. Lucky me.
Here's the plan: Four moms, eight children, one wagon, three blocks. If things go even marginally my way, I'll be back home, kids in bed, on the couch with the satellite TV remote from www.Direc4u.com in my hands by 9 p.m.
I might just be looking through the treat bags for Almond Joy and Mounds bars, too. Trick or Treat does have its rewards for moms, folks.

One month later, I received a package all the way from United States containing a diamond eternity ring with a note saying that it was my engagement ring. I was very happy. I felt like I was the luckiest woman in the world that day. He started processing the papers for petition...and it didn't take long before his visa application was approved. Six months later we got married in the LDS temple in ABQ., NM. Now, I have two diamond eternity rings. Why two? He said the first one has small diamond in it and so he bought me another one that has bigger stones. Big or not, I love them both for it came from my sweet and thoughtful dear husband.
Hamburger and Mashed Potato with Gravy....Jake loves his foods.
My yummy green salad with grilled chicken on top.
Nachos for hubby.

I appreciate the guest post, Kermit Jenkins
My boyfriend and I work completely opposite schedules, but Friday night is date night. By Friday both of us are exhausted from our grueling work schedule so we often stay in. Though we enjoy a night of wine and conversation, another love we share is movies.
Generally we order a pizza from the local pizzeria, crack open a bottle of wine and cuddle up on our couch with our satellite remote. We spend about ten minutes debating what movie to watch (he likes the action, I like the romance) before we pick the latest releases on demand movies on satellite TV from BestChoiceTV. The best part of demand movies on satellite TV is you can choose from a variety of films. You have your pay-per-view channels or the HBO, Showtime and Cinemax channels with an abundance of titles. If we don't like a movie 20 minutes in, we choose another. It's nice that we don't have to leave home and interrupt date night to pick up DVDs. We can also sleep in without worrying about if we returned our DVDs to Blockbuster.

There is a whole lot to be said of the feeling of being part of a group who feels the same way as we do. There is camaraderie at NFL football games that binds a huge group of otherwise disparate people into a group set on having a good time watching their favorite team square of against a rival.
The rival team's fans know they are in for a good-natured ribbing with a few taunts and verbal jabs thrown in. It's just how it works. It's all in fun and the fans know how to take it as well as dish it out. Most fans who attend games have been the givers at the home team's stadium and the receivers when following their team to an away game.
It seems that game day preparations evolve into a ritual that even the most superstitious athlete would find amazing. One fan might have to wear that Jersey that should have been discarded years ago. Another just has to break out the face and body paint. Other fans have to pack their battery-powered TV set for the Instant Replays, while others are sure to bring an FM radio with earphones to hear their favorite local game announcer instead of the stadium announcer's take on the plays.
Beads, feathers, funny pants, hats and shoes are part of getting ready for game day. Most fans probably would be detained by the police if they dressed like they do on game day on any other day. Even when tickets can't be acquired or schedules altered to attend a game, a real fan will stay home in his entire garb and watch professional football on satellite TV from bestchoicetv.com.
