American Eagle is having a sale this weekend online with free shipping and an additional 25% off clearance. Be sure to use ebates before making an online purchase. This past year I've earned $20 back on my purchases online and my husband has earned even more from purchasing his school books online. I often earn points for American Eagle gift cards from an online opinion panel called e-Rewards. You can also earn points for magazine subscriptions and airline miles.Check it out by clicking here.

Dream Reaching

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Last night, my husband and I watched October Sky. It was my first time watching it and when it was done I wondered what could inspire people to go against all odds and do something remarkable that will change their life for the better. It’s not as if the “rocket boy” story is a fairytale. We see it time and again where people defy what others are saying and reach for their dreams. What would motivate you enough to reach your dreams and are you motivated enough to achieve them?

Flower Arrangement

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I made my own wedding bouquet. The thought came to me that making your own bouquet would be fun and it was. I went to Pat Catans, a local craft store and got a "fresh cut" looking stem holder, which consisted of Styrofoam, and plastic stems, ribbons, and flowers. Picking out the flowers helped me decided on a color scheme. While in the store, I grouped flowers together that seemed to work together and held them like a bouquet to help me visualize what it would like. Once I got home and started working on the bouquet, I used wire cutters to help me cut the flowers to the right length. It was then a matter of arranging the flowers onto the Styrofoam. It was pretty fun and inexpensive (compared to paying someone else to do it). If you need a bouquet or flower arrangement, why not try it yourself?
