One thing I used to do on my own was to pluck my own eyebrows. But for some awkward reasons I just couldn't do it anymore. It's not the same anymore since I use a pair of reading glasses so I can see things up-close. Wearing them while plucking eyebrows is just ridiculous for me. So I need to go to a salon to have my eyebrows plucked or waxed. But if I couldn't go, I just have to deal not only with bushy eyebrows but also with a little wrinkle around the eyes. It's a good thing I can get the wrinkles under control with my very reliable eye wrinkle cream.

Anyway, my friend has recommended staying in one of the Carolina Designs Outer Banks vacation rental by the ocean front. I like it that there many fun family activities that we could do in the outer banks like swimming, surfing, hang gliding, para-sailing, biking, fishing, crabbing, golfing, water skiing, and kite flying. We love taking tours and learn about the rich history of many famous historical places and in the outer banks we can visit places like the Whalehead Hunt Club and Wright Brother's Memorial. I'm so looking forward to this beach vacation.

I'm very happy to always get Cooking.com coupons because I'm a sucker for anything about the kitchen. One thing that I've been dreaming to have is a set of All-Clad cookware set, but it's very pricey so I just couldn't afford to buy it. But because of Cooking.com coupons it looks like my dream will already come true. Imagine the almost $400 savings that I will get just by using Cooking.com coupons! Isn't that amazing? If I get this cookware set, I can get rid of all the old ones I have which means I'll have more room in my kitchen island. I so love these great kitchen deals.

We all love the outdoors so the State Park Marina or Dogwood Canyon Nature Park would be a perfect place to explore. The little guy will surely enjoy the Ride the Ducks too as he loves riding boats. Of course not to forget the Miniature Golf Courses that I'm sure the little guy would be thrilled to try especially that one of the themes is Pirate's Cover Adventure Golf. We also love touring museums and the World's Largest Antique Toy Museum really interests me.
Anyway, the many attractions in Branson don't end when summer ends, the calendar of events extends way up to November so there are a lot of chances to catch the excitement of Branson.

I've always wanted to plant vegetables like tomatoes but I'm hesitant to do so. Though we have large backyard to accommodate vegetable patches, it is however rocky that it wouldn't be ideal to plant any vegetable. So my best solution to still enjoy fresh vegetables in the summer minus the large vegetable beds is planting them in outdoor planters. I have a large deck where I could put these planters which means I could have a variety of vegetables to plant.
I also have several indoor plants that I enjoy all year round. They need to be transferred to new indoor planters though as some of them are really thriving well. Speaking of indoor planter I found several pots and planters with elegant styles at eplanter.com that can also be used outdoor. I found these planters really good buys.

I read that the eight most important prenatal nutrients are folic acid - reduce the risk of neural tube defects; calcium - decrease the risk of high blood pressure; DHA - suggested to decrease the incidence of post partum depression; Co-Enzyme Q10 - lower the incidence of pre-eclampsia; Probiotics - friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract that help reduce the incidence of gestational diabete; Choline - has the protective effect for preventing spinal cord defects; Ginger Root - effective in treating nausea and vomiting; and Inositol - protects against the development of neural tube defects.

Like I've said staying up so late at night gives me all this idea of resorting to diet pills to obtain a flat tummy. With all those paid programming shows about diet pills I've seen It sure hard to narrow down the one that will really work. But if I were to resort to diet pills I would choose the one that will suppress my appetite so I wouldn't have to pig out again, lol. From what I've read, an ingredient in diet pill called irvingia gabonensis not only aid in weight loss management but overall health as well. It is all natural and there have been no known serious side effect during clinical trials, so it is apparently safe to take. Also I read that it helps in cholesterol and sugar level management as well. I guess this kind of weight loss product is worth trying.

I'm happy that having bad credit report has never been a problem to my hubby and I. We are both responsible people when it comes to handling our finances and credit so we enjoy high credit score. Unlike some people we know who are over dipping into all kinds of debts that are beyond their means which obviously affected their credit negatively. And one friend was not smart enough accommodating a relative to make a loan using his credit, so when that relative defaulted my friend had to assume responsibility but only after his credit was already badly damaged. Last time I head that friend I was talking about is not anymore in speaking terms with the relative he extended his credit to. I'd say it's not not wrong to help, but I wouldn't extend credit that would affect my own, especially with relatives.

Anyway, I am thinking of getting myself one of those food scales so I can control the portion of my food intake. I need portion control scale so I can monitor my 1,200 calorie per day goal and it would be best to get those digital scales so measuring is quicker and easier. I could easily get to the weight I'm working for if I can strictly control my food intake coupled with three-times a week work-out. But hopefully I won't backslide in my work-out routine this time. Well of course I can't totally give up baking cookies for my 'boys' even if I'm trying to control my sweet tooth. I bake cookies a lot and I usually bake in bulk so I can freeze away for later. I found stainless steel scales that bakers use which I'm interested to buy. It's 16 lb capacity and two platforms sound perfect for baking in bulk.
