Fold laundry together yes it has to be done but there is time to sit and chat.

Is Honesty The Best Policy?

Honesty and Trust are a foundation in a marriage. It's a vital part in making a marriage successful. Wanting to have honesty and being honest does not mean you have to share every thought that you think, or every fear or even every dream you have. Knowing what couples want to share with one another is a skill that couples learn to use to have a good marriage.
Having honesty in your marriage , you and your spouse are aware of each other's likes and dislikes. What areas our your relationship that are weak and needing to be worked on. It also will help you and your spouse understand each other.
The big question is "Are you or your spouse completely honest?"
Here are some questions that you and your spouse can ask one another.
1. What are you feeling about your current situation kids, career, is your marriage where you want it to be?
2. Both of your pasts former lovers, Dreams and Mistakes, What you have achieved in life?
3. Your tomorrows- your future goals as a couple, future goals for each individual, family.

Being honest in your marriage can cause arguments. When trying to have an honest conversation do both of you have an open mind? Are you disrespectful to one another. Is this a topic that you avoid. But remember without honest in your relationship it will fail.

Awesome Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Yesterday I decided to bake some cookies. I have been craving good oatmeal cookies that usually someone's grandma would usually bake. I have tried many recipes over the years and there are a few that was good but not outstanding. I found a recipe that is like old fashion oatmeal cookies.

Here is the recipe for all those oatmeal cookie lovers! Enjoy!

1/2 pound (2sticks) margarine or butter, softened
1 Cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of granulated Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1-1/2 Cups of All purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Salt (optional)
3 Cups of Oats quick or old fashion, uncooked
1 cup of Raisins

Heat the oven to 350 F
Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
Stir in oats and raisins; mix well.
Take an ice cream scooper or drop rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 12-14 mins or until done.

I ended up adding chocolate morsals and 1 cup of peanut butter. But that is optional!

Lemon for thought

I went out to lunch today with a couple of my girlfriends and we had the discussion on our drinks at the table.
I had water with Lemon in it and they asked me what the health benefits were. I thought I would share them with you. Many people dont realize that lemon water is very good for you. Squeezing a lemon in your drink doesn't just give it flavor and quenching your thirst.

Lemons are full of Vitamin C. So if you were to squeeze the entire lemon into your water that lemon has more vitamin C then an orange itself.

So the next time you sit down at a resturaunt order water with slices of lemon!

My blackberry

I have wanted a Blackberry for so long and now have one. To all the moms out there who run a home business this is the toy to get. This has made my life so much more easier in the past 3 days since I have had it.
I do a lot of social networking around the clock and not always around a computer due to household cleaning, chasing my 16 month old around the house and working on my home business.
My new toy is here and it was so easy to set up and get started. But it sends all me my email updates around the clock, my texts all of my apps like twitter, facebook, myspace and many more.
I am such a kid in a Candy store. My husband said that for the past 3 days I have ignored him which I haven't but he wants me to make a scheduled appointment time to spend time with him. Lol It's my latest addiction.
The little things in life that are fun and bring a smile to your face.

Help Feed Starving Children

I am teamed up with a company called TamPogo.
This company is fighting to help feed starving children with all the purchases that everyone makes from their website. Each product that you purchase helps feed a starving child for 1 week.
This website has everything from clothes, gift baskets, everyday products you would normally use, OTC products. So much more.
Check out the website its has great products. I buy from them monthly and have helped 15 kids. I feel that I am helping out some way. Being a mom myself and see other children starve I just couldn't pass up this opportunity. I wanted to help.
At some point today check them out! Help feed a starving child.

My Garden

When you work at home and have a toddler running around you really don't have time to do anything. Life is just crazy.
Here is something I have started every year to keep me centered. I plant a garden every year. My main reason is I am starting to eat healthy. I love to go out every morning and just tend to my garden. I usually plant green peppers, Baby watermelon, Squash usually its (Butternut) my favorite. I plant strawberries, tomato (I make homemade sauce) Fresh herbs.

My second reason for planting a garden is you save money. I love organic fruits and veggies and hate paying expensive prices at the stores so plant your garden. If I want something I haven't planted then I go and buy at my local Farmers Market. Support your local Farmers!!
