Here is a little trivia for you: We currently have no address. We are sharing our current address (house number) with our landlady. And this is not a duplex or an apartment, it’s a house! I really do not know how come this house didn’t get to be assigned a decent house number but it is what it is. It’s a good thing our landlady is an elderly woman who rarely receives mail or packages. It would be quite a mix-up if all correspondence were delivered to her house.
We are currently expecting a courier box bearing all the goodies I shopped for during Black Friday way back in November and I am anxious if the freight service will pick our house up. See, this should have not been a cause of anxiety if we had address plaques. I will be getting a lawn marker when we finally have our own house so anybody who will be looking for our house will not miss it.
This is what I am talking about:
I love how the lighted address plaques from Outdora too. Buyers have placed great feedback that the plaques are very visible during night time – since we live in the suburbs this will be a great idea so I won’t have delayed food (and pizza) deliveries. If a house is national or cultural treasure, one can get commemorative plaque for it like this one:
Remember that having an address plaque not only serves as a decoration for your lawn or door but as a helpful tool for people to find your house easily. Imagine if there would be an emergency and an ambulance needs to find your house in the shortest possible time – having a visible marker for your house will not only help, but could matter of fact save lives. Do not worry about it ruining the style of your house or lawn. Address plaque makers these days have varied designs made of quality materials for every home imaginable. Just make sure that what you get will stand the test of time. Address plaques need to survive extreme weather conditions and would be subject to continuous wear and tear. Order from a reliable company like Outdora.com.
You thought it can only happen in movies. Apparently, it can also happen in real life. A friend of ours had her home almost burglarized. It was a good thing they invested in a Home Security System. The got theirs from ADT and with the Home Security System they got, it already has the following:
1. Digital Keypad – you have access to fire, medical and police dispatch with one touch of a button
2. Keychain Remote Access – one can disarm or arm the whole security system at any area of the house
3. PIR Infrared MOTION DETECTORS – these can differentiate pets and humans so false alarms are prevented.
4. UP TO 3 POINTS OF PROTECTION – wireless and window sensors can be moved around the house.
5. Decibel Alarm Siren – it is enough to wake the dead – believe me.
6. Battery Back up – In case the burglars are smart enough to disable your electricity first, have no fear. The ADT Home Security System is smarter than them. Its high-capacity battery backup system will keep your home and family protected!
My friend’s home was left untouched but they were, as expected, traumatized.
I have a long list of woes about the kitchen in our rented house. If I can just renovate it and have the amount deducted from our rent every month, I would have gladly renovated it for the longest time. But we might have to stay here for 10 years with the amount of renovation needed to be done.
For one thing, I would replace our current sink with an undermount kitchen sink. I really do not know why it hasn’t been installed with one in the first place. For one thing, cleaning it would be so easy, especially around the area. When you need to wipe off food debris, you just wipe it off and it gets thrown into the sink, and it still does not get caught on the rim on the sink. Second (and more important for me) is that with these types of sinks, plumbing is hid behind the cabinetry. I like my kitchen and bathroom clean all the time. It also looks less messy if pipes are hidden, don’t you agree?
I would get stainless undermount kitchen sinks because it is easier to clean, and it is definitely for the long run – it does not stain, dent and scratch easily.
It seems it is easier to work in making our dreams come true.
Thanks to technology and the internet. And I am not kidding on that statement.
I have three friends who currently are studying for their masteral degree programs while staying a career woman, an active mother to schooling kids and still maintaining (and having time for) a gorgeous, fit body. How do they do it? Through the help of online colleges! It has been so much easier to sign up for classes without having to sacrifice time and availability or even try to juggle schedules factoring transportation and traffic costs.
And since the transport factor has been erased, they can now enroll in schools they really like, not just because it is easier to get from work or home or have the class slots they have the time to take.
And just for your information in case you will be interested to study again, here are the top 10 online schools:
1. University of Phoenix
2. Kaplan University
3. Capella University
4. Colorado Technical University Online
5. Everest University Online
6. South University
7. Florida Tech University Online
8. Westwood College
9. American Intercontinental University
10. Ashford University
So now we don’t have reasons not to aim higher, right?
I want to try new things this year and one of them is to be able to make things grow. In short, I want to be able to take care of a plant, let it grow and bloom. As of the moment I am leaning towards planting seeds for vegetables. God knows how much we need more veggies in the house. So I am on the lookout for Planters. I want my little experiment boxed in so I have more control on the soil (and I can move them around). Outdoor Planters and Garden Planters are high on my list.
Will this do?
The reason why I haven’t considered flowering plants is because I am so scared they would just wilt and die. Plus, my flowers in their Indoor Planters run a high risk of getting plucked out by my daughter everyday. Window Box Planters might work but definitely not those High End Planters:
Isn’t that picture the most enticing thing? Now if only I can blooms like that as well.
My aunt has a green thumb and she can make anything bloom under her care. She makes such pretty arrangements too. She invests on Decorative Planters because she gives them away as gifts quite often. Wouldn’t you want to receive lovely blooms in a Decorative Planter?
My sister visited the other day and we watched High School Musical 3, her first time watching. It seems like I was right back at high school with all the Lockers I saw! Unfortunately, my Locker was not as cool like theirs were. School Lockers was the least of the concerns of my school back then.
Back to the movie, we literally swooned and gushed to what was the best scene in the movie, in my humble opinion of course:
I am literally green with envy with Vanessa’s clothes and her man.
There were some scenes in the Gym Lockers where I thought Zack’s body was shown just for the sake of it being shown. I am not complaining though.
Wood Lockers were not seen in the movie but I can bet that they ordered the lockers they used on the set at MoreLockers.com. I saw a couple from the site that were familiar in some scenes.
