Every time I see a store selling scrubs, I often see myself wearing one as my daily nursing uniforms. I actually own a few sets already because when I did my clinical, we were required to wear a comfy scrubs.
I actually found a website Blue Sky Scrubs that sells designer nursing uniforms. They have everything that a medical professional will need. They sell scrub hats, jackets, medical coats, green scrubs and accessories. This website is perfect destination for medical professionals who wants fashionable scrubs and accessories.

I decided a few weeks ago to just make all of my holiday gifts that I'm going to give out this year. I've done some homemade gifts in the past and this year I'm trying to be a little more frugal with my money so that I can pay off some of my credit card bills, so I'm going DIY for the holidays.
I've been looking for different ideas of DIY gifts that I can make online for a few weeks now. When I was doing that about a week ago, I found a Clear Bundle online offer that I couldn't let escape me, so I went ahead and signed up for it right then and there.
I think that I have an idea for a homemade gift for everyone by now. I went and bought a whole bunch of mason jars at a warehouse and am going to give away a couple of differnt food and drink mixes. For some of them I'm making dry hot chocolate mix, chocolate chip cookie mix and Russian tea mix. It's something you can use for a while and share with others!

Television from http://www.tvbydirect.com/directv-programming.html provides the best option for watching games when I can't make it on the road, but the coverage rules for local television for the sports network are more arcane than the federal tax code. Fortunately, I do not rely on cable television to make sure I can see the Flyers in all their glory. When I can't make to a game in person, I watch the game on satellite television. HNL season pass enables me to watch all the games.

Thanksgiving is a time for sharing old tradition and discovering new tradition. It is an memorable time to spend with the family. My kids and I wake up early every Thanksgiving morning. We watch the Thanksgiving Parade while cuddling on the couch with our blankets. I put together a small breakfast while everyone is getting ready for the day. After eating, we go to my parents' house across town. My husband always makes sure to set the house alarm from www.Totalalarmsystems.com because we are gone most of the day.
As we drive across town, we discuss what we are thankful for. Most times, it is that we get to spend the day with the grandparents. We eat our special meal with everyone. It is a joy to reconnect in person with no major interruptions. At this meal, we get to plan for our next holiday, Christmas! What an exciting time. After our meal and cleanup, we spend the day lying around watching football and Christmas movies with the kids.
Thanksgiving is a special time to reflect on family and enjoy those around you.

With the evolution of Smartphones, we can all have a new-found freedom in enjoying life, mixing business and pleasure.

My obsession is a collection of purses. I collect expensive purses. I treasure them and make sure that I put them on their dust jackets whenever I am not using them. When I say expensive purses, it really doesn't mean those thousand dollar purses. Anyway, my latest purchase is a Marc by Marc Jacobs Leather Shoulder Bag which I bought at Zappos.com. I have been a loyal customer of this website because I am satisfied with the products they are selling and its price.
Ever wonder what's my next obsession? I want to buy myself a new Juicy Couture Luxe Day Dreamer Sequins Purse. Oh... I can't wait to get a hold of this pretty purse.
tote, they all serve the same purpose.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May we all have an abundant year ahead. I will not eat Mr. Turkey tomorrow because our friend will not only cook turkey but ham too. I prefer ham. After the dinner will be heading off to the mall and start our black friday sale while some people are still in bed.
I love the convenience that technology offers. I am always on the go, thus, I always prefer to have the latest gadgets that can make my life easier while being away from home. Every now and then, I splurge on buying the latest communication gadgets. I never had an LG phone before but, its features intrigued me thus I am considering buying one. The new LG Optimus One launched by LG Electronics is a smart phone that is powered by Android 2.2 and optimized for Google Mobile Services.
The new LG Optimus has fun features and has user-friendly interface. This phone also features a camera with face tracking and smile shot which comes very handy for I love taking pictures. It also has a 3.2" wide HVGA screen and a long-lasting 1500mAh capacity battery. The thing that convinced me the most to consider buying this cell phone is its ability to provide quick internet surfing. LG Optimus One allows for two to three times faster and smoother internet browsing. This will mean that no more waiting for web-page loading and application pop-ups. I can surely multi-task with this new gadget.

The concession is very awesome and they improved the boring football food offered in most stadiums I've been. Food choices varies from cold beers to pop corns, they even have huge selections of barbecues in every sections. I noticed the turkey leg barbecue, it really looked yummy but sorry turkey fan I am not one of you. I bought mango drink, I forgot what they called it but to me it looks like pearl coolers since it has round gelatin and a big straw. It was yummy!
Now that I've already went to Yankee stadium the next thing in my mind is going to City Stadium in Queens, NY-- NY Mets' home stadium, many people have said that it is a lot more sophisticated than the new Yankee stadium, one of these days I'll have to make a trip there.

Life can be tiresome, a routine that never ends. This makes me sad. That's why when I have my lunch hour, I make sure to take some time out for myself to evaluate the way the day is going and how I can improve the things I'm doing. If there's anything I can do to save the day and make it better, I plan it out at lunch. Lunch is like my wake up call after a half day of work. I'm able to have a nice lunch and think about how the day has progressed, the mistakes I've made, and the ways that I can salvage the rest of the day and make it great for me and everyone I work with.
There are times when I go home for lunch and watch direct tv when I eat. This is one of my all-time favorite lunch activities because it allows me to really relax at home and get the most out of my hour. It's like a break in the middle of the day that makes the rest of the day go more smoothly. I feel refreshed after going back to work and I know that I've been extremely entertained and well-fed along the way. Private time away from work is always good, especially when it comes during that very important lunch hour that so many of us depend on.

This morning I received a phone call from my best friend. She decided to surprise me and come into town for an afternoon of shopping and dining. I haven't seen her in so long, I quickly jumped out of bed and hopped in the shower. Today was for sure going to be a great day.
It dawned on me while I was in the shower, that I have known my best friend for about 20 years now. We met back in high school and quickly become very close friends. We used to love to spend our afternoon at the mall just thinking about all the things we wish we could buy. Those amazing memories brought a smile to my face. I hopped out of the shower, and got dressed as fast as I could. I felt like a school girl again with this excitement I had.
I ran downstairs to make sure the cats where fed. I grabbed my coat and my wallet and headed out the door. I was so excited that I almost forget to set my home alarm system. I ran back in the house to set the alarm (information) before off the visit my best friend. Once I got in the car, I called her to let her know I was on my way. I can't wait to spend the day with her, what a great day it will be.

Whatever the outcome of that game, I will surely not regret for paying a hefty amount for the tickets. We will be joined by my cousins husband and her son, Mike. We will also spend a night at their house as the game will not be done until like 10ish at night, driving back home wouldn't be a good idea.
I just wish that Army will play good and hopefully they'll be able to beat them--wishful thinking!
But my heater inside is delightful!
I love this time of year, but I always know I have to perform the same chores to get my house in the correct shape for this weather. One of my favorite parts of the winter is my fire place. Although I generally rely on my central heating system to warm me up, I do enjoy sitting by the fire with my family or a book. It definitely makes me feel cozy to hear the crackling and feel the heat. So my first part of getting the home ready (and getting me in the mood for winter) is to get firewood. I generally store it in the garage, but I'll put a small pile by the fire place to remind myself of the winter to come. My least favorite part of winter is walking by my windows and feeling gusts of chill air even when the window is closed! I always make sure to check all crevices and make sure everything is sealed correctly. I'll then weatherstrip different places where it feels uncovered. While working on these, I end up thinking about storm windows and install those next. These are generally my winter chores, but what isn't a chore is insuring my DirecTV offers are ready for winter. TV and hot cocoa are my safety haven from the cold.

Even though I like to read books that I've read reviews of which happen to be very good, I also like to just go blindly into a bookstore and pick out a random book or two based just on their covers and my first impressions of them. Actually, I probably do that a lot more often than looking up stuff beforehand that I want to buy and read.
But, I was online the other day, actually trying to find a book to buy with my Barnes and Noble coupon that I had and was about to expire when I came across this site clearwireinternet.com/order_clearwire_internet.html and I liked the looks of it. So I decided to change and make it my internet company.
Well, I never found a book review that I liked enough, so I bought this Big Girl book by Danielle Steel. It's about a girl who's really self conscious even though she seems to have it all, but then she gets an eating disorder. I thought that it sounded like it might be a good inspirational book, so I thought I'd give it a try.

No visit to the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee would be complete for my family unless we went to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg. We are so fortunate to live within a two hour drive of Gatlinburg, and we try and make a trip there at least twice a year. Our family gets up extra early, packs a lunch, checks to see if our home security alarm from AllHomeSecurity.com/ is set and then we pile into the car. We time it so that we can be at the aquarium when the doors open. Later in the day, after we eat our lunch, we go hiking in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. We love going to the aquarium, so we always head there first.
There is such an awesome variety of exhibits at Ripley's Aquarium and they are always adding new things, so we never get bored. They have a hands on exhibit featuring sting rays that my children especially love. You can actually reach in the lagoon and touch a ray as it swims past. I have yet to try it though! My favorite spot is the penguin exhibit. They have a cool tunnel that you can crawl through and observe the penguins all around you. They are amazing creatures!
Another neat area is the moving walkway that glides though an underwater tunnel. While in the tunnel, you get to see an incredible array of sea life. View menacing sharks, huge stingrays and every kind of salt water fish you can imagine. A trip to the aquarium is such a great destination for families with children. It is so educational and a great way to spend time with your kids.

There is nothing I love more than a good trip to my local library. The library is the only place where I can read as the good lord intended me too, in complete, uninterrupted silence. The building is over a hundred years old, and is in the center of downtown. It stands, a testament to simpler times, among the freshly built commercial area. Before I leave the house, I gather my things, and set my security in alarm from www.Securitychoice.com/. Then, while I drive towards my destination I listen to soothing music. It helps my mind wind down. The days are always so hectic, if don't calm myself I can't focus on my reading. When I arrive from the library, I head directly to the third floor: fiction. I brows the stacks, searching for anything that draws my attention. Once I've found my a piece of literature that is worthy of my time, I settle into a spot on the third floor lounge, in a comfy reclining chair. I sit, and read. The world could be crashing down around me, but I am at peace. I savor these rare moments. They normally do not last very long.

I hope and and pray that I'll be considered for some other posts I applied from them. Below is the letter from them:

I was sitting on the couch the other day and I just wasn't as comfortable as I wanted to be. I was a little tired but didn't want to lay down. I rested my feet on the coffee table but the hard surface made it very uncomfortable. I realized just then that the item I needed to have in my living room was a recliner. I could put my feet up on the cushioned foot rest and even lay back and close my eyes if I decided to take a nap. It would be the perfect place to relax after a long day of work or school.
I couldn't decide whether to purchase a leather recliner or a plush fabric. The fabric I wanted was very soft and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to stay awake. The leather was very nice looking but it seemed to get cold in the winter and sticky hot in the summer. In the end I went with a rougher fabric that was comfortable and stain resistant incase I fell asleep with juice or soda in my hand. It should arrive this weekend and I plan to spend the next couple days testing it out. I'll come home from work and turn on the DirectStarTV all from the comfort of my new recliner.
Then, we head off home and I turned the radio on and the dj had just announced the time and I then said, see I am indeed right!
Like birds, let's leave behind what we don't need to carry...GRUDGES, SADNESS, PAIN, FEAR, and REGRETS. Fly Light! Life is BEAUTIFUL!I hope and pray that I can workout my flaws for I know in my heart I'm hurting.

One of the things my husband and I love to do together is take walks around our local park. They just recently put in a paved track with mile markers (so you can easily tell how far you’ve gone) and we’ve been out there almost every day since! It’s getting a little colder, so I’m wondering how long it’ll last—but we’ve been able to bundle up before going out and have been fine.
Either way, I couldn’t be more grateful that the town put this in. Now Fred and I can stay active, which we’ve both been concerned about doing since we’re now retired and don’t have to get up and move around in an office all day. The best part: The park is right by the busy hub of town, so once we’re done walking around there, we can literally walk to town and finish running any errands we have! In fact, the other day, after our walk, we walked over to one of our miracle ear locations and had hearing tests done on the spot. Definitely beats a boring ride in the car!
Anyway, for our last 2 nights stay here wasn't really good because the occupants next door is kinda cocky. I think it's her first time in this mom & pop motel (5rms only). She's complaining that I am loud, LOL I was on the phone with my cousin hahahha! I teased my husband that we should make love and moan to the highest level so that she'll be pissed to death! Not a bad idea I think! Whatever, I had been talking on the phone for the past couple of stays yet nobody was bothered she must have a strong amplifier on her ears that she was able to hear me talking! Good thing my conversation with my cousin is about to end when her bf knocked our door so It wasn't really a big deal yet annoying heheheh! As if her bf's snore is not that loud well if I rate it from my husband's, it is wayyyyy too loud believe me I was able to hear it from the 2nd room and they occupied the 5th! Well anyway bahala sya sa life nya!

Is it just me, or is one of the best things about going to the theater the concession stand? I don't know what it is about movie theater popcorn, but it's just about the best thing I've had in my life! I can't get enough. One large tub of movie theater popcorn and I am one happy camper. It doesn't even matter if the movie I am seeing disappoints me with a predictable plot and corny acting. As long as I have my butter popcorn, I feel as if the night is complete! After filling up on the fluffy kernels of joy, it's time for some movie theater candy. This isn't quite as tantalizing as the popcorn, but it comes close! Some nights I want gummy bears, other nights it will be chocolate covered raisins, but no matter what candy I go with, it's always a delight to eat! And let's not forget about movie theater nachos. There is something to be said for nearly stale round corn chips served with some magical imitation cheese sauce and canned jalapenos all in a nifty plastic plate. Whoever invented that delight deserves a hearty slap on the back! I'm about to set my home alarm right now and head to the theater where that hot butter lover's dream and all the other amazing concessions await me!

Anyhow, since I am a "professional" shopper, I can tell you which stores in the mall in our vicinity display their logo floor mats. There are some logo floor mats that are very intriguing and for me they really are eye catching. It somehow transmit positive energy to the shoppers as most shoppers check the inside of the store because of their display that are very eye catching. Besides going to the mall I also enjoy going to exhibits as I always find different products in an exhibit hall. I am the type that likes to check different exhibit booths or any trade show displays. I am always curious on what product or services they offer.
Over the years, I have observed that exhibits has improved. I have seen how the exhibits evolved. Nowadays more people use truss in their exhibits. It makes the exhibit more sophisticated.
My close friend also referred me to her previous employer hopefully I'll get a positive response from them. If I will not get any call from them this week, I was advised to call them next week. J told me to take the job if they offered me the supervisory post which is the only open position right now, anyway training is provided so it wouldn't be that difficult to bear.
Wish me luck.
Preparing for a wedding is tiresome but it is all worth it. When you do get married, you want the event to last a lifetime that is why you need a professional photographer to chronicle the moment. The Roman Grinev Photography, one of the most sought after Annapolis Wedding Photographers should be your choice. They are very keen on making sure that every event of your special day is captured by their lenses.

I can't imagine not having a healthcare insurance because health care services here in the USA is way to expensive for ordinary people. I guess we are lucky that we have enough health coverage that covers hospital services, emergency room, intensive care, ambulance service, X-rays and tests done in the lab. With the health insurance that we have, co-payment seems to be manageable.
Health insurance is a necessity because if you don't have one you will be left to shoulder medical expenses by yourself. Medical expenses are no joke, that I am very sure! So, if you don't have a health insurance, don't waste your time. Shop around and look for inexpensive medical insurance that will give you the best coverage that will cover your needs. You can find cheap medical insurance online that will give you instant quote. Compare their rates and choose the best.
