What do you want from your kitchen? Before you tackle a major remodel, you'll want to ask yourself some basic questions about your lifestyle.
Do you have kids?
Your perfect space could be a kitchen/family room combination where kids play or do homework while you whip up supper.
- A peninsula or island creates a casual, low-maintenance eating area.
- To encourage self-service, install a snack bar with pull-out cooling drawers and a microwave at kid height. Plates and utensils should also be within easy reach.
- A planning desk is ideal for the family's headquarters. Include a place for a bulletin board, calendar, telephone, message center, keys, files and a computer. Plan for plenty of individualized storage and sorting to handle mountains of mail and school papers.
- Floors, countertops and cabinets should stand up to heavy use.

~~Thomas S. Monson~~
I never said it would be easy, I only said, it would be worth it.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
“Behind every good man is a good woman,” the old saying goes. How can a wife help her husband grow and progress and be a priesthood leader in the home without criticizing, nagging, or making him feel like he’s not measuring up?
As a result of some wide reading, pondering, and research, John Bytheway attempts to answer that question in this book. With his trademark humor and unique insights, the author shares experiences from his own marriage, practical counsel from several marriage experts, and inspired statements from Church leaders.
Simple tools such as “praising betimes with sharpness” and “making requests with an exit strategy” will bless marriages and help husbands and wives fulfill their roles as they try to lead their families in the latter days.
And...here we go!
1. She had a great great way to make me feel better when I am down.
2. My husband, Matt is by my side, always.
3. I know this: Families can be together forever.
4. In this life, I have so much to learn still.
5. These words apply to me: patient, forgiving, unselfish, organized, God-fearing, and optimistic.
6. When my husband came home from work this morning, the sun was shining.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleping early, tomorrow my plans include going out with my son and Sunday, I want to go to church with my hubby and son!
ShopWiki is similar to Google that offers many products. You can find almost everything in there from fashion to personal use. What I like about ShopWiki is that they have a variety of choices compared to other trraditional shopping sites that has limited items. And if you are looking for rain boots, I'm pretty sure you will also find what you are looking for in there. Since my cousin is getting married next month, I will buy surprise his bride to be a wedding shoes he couldn't resists. Visit their website for more products or items available.

Listening at the teacher telling a story about turtle; later on she taught them how to make a turtle out of paper plates and fabrics. They had fun!
You're a Window Shopper!
You know that shopping's a blast, but you prefer to save your money.
You hardly ever give into an impulse buy, unless it's a total steal.
You've always got the most money of your friends - and you never have to borrow.
And you've got a nice wardrobe too ... of classic pieces that last years!

...to All Father's Out There :-)!
What Is A Dad?
A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs
but when things go wrong
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong.
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart.
And each year that passes
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad .
for listening and caring
for giving and sharing
but, especially, for just being you! Happy Father's Day!

Contribute something that’s good—for you. If you bring a healthy potluck dish, you know that you’ll be able to get something nutritious in, no matter how decadent all the other offerings are. Here are some perfect summer potluck recipes to bring to the picnic.
Have a little lean protein. Studies show that, gram for gram, lean proteins help you to feel fuller than carbohydrates or fats, so enjoy a little bit of what’s grilling: a lean-beef burger, a piece of chicken or fish, some tofu. Aim for about 3 ounces, which is about the size of your cell phone—provided you’ve upgraded since 1999—or a deck of cards.
Don’t go crazy with starchy carbs. If you’re trying to keep a cap on calories, limit yourself to 1 cup—total—of starchy side dishes, such as potato, pasta and those delicious bean salads. Of course, you’re not going to whip out a measuring cup at a social event! Instead, visualize a tennis ball—that’s about the size of 1 cup. So is the size of a woman’s fist.
Fill up on vegetables first. Eat loads of green salad—with a couple of tablespoons of a healthier salad dressing. One tablespoon is about the size of your thumb. Crunch on the crudités—go easy on dips—instead of chips.
Prioritize your favorite foods. Does dessert look irresistible? Dig in. Just make room for it first. Have a piece of lean protein (chicken, fish), grilled vegetables and a healthy side (1/2 cup or so of baked beans or a bean salad) so you can indulge without feeling guilty.
When you’re finished, go play. Start tossing a ball with the kids. Rally the adults to play horseshoes. No need to jump around like a fool to “burn off” dinner; the point is to pull yourself away from the chips and salsa.
"I was amazed at how many people came to my concerts," Archuleta observed during an interview Wednesday. "I knew people liked me on 'American Idol,' but I didn't think they'd care to come see me sing at my own show." Salt Lake fans will get a chance to see the "American Idol" runner-up at an event on Saturday, June 6, at the Rio Tinto Stadium. Click here to read the full story.

Your Gift is Sensitivity
You are easily moved, and you have a strong emotional reaction to almost everything.
Your sensitivity helps you get a lot out of life. You appreciate every moment more.
It's hard for you to divorce yourself from your feelings. You notice every little thing around you.
You're the type of person who finds empathy and compassion easy.
