Ever since I did a review for EcoSmart, I've changed over to just using their products for bug removal. We have lots of bugs where I live. I swear that there must be something in the water, because the spiders are getting bigger and scary looking. We spend alot of time in our rec room which seems to be the place for bugs. I really hate bug sprays and I don't like spraying chemicals that are harmful to us. That's when EcoSmart steps in. Their organic bug repellent is perfect to use.
Orange tabs are on each Habitat Cell so they can be closed to keep the Nanos from escaping which comes in handy when 10 are walking around. You can connect them to tracks as well.
These Hexbug Nanos can flip themselves back over if they get turned over. They went through the tracks fairly easy and only a couple of times did the kids have to "help" them.
Special batteries can be purchased separately so they can be used for a long time. The Hexbugs still are going strong, so I think the batteries last awhile.
I have a couple of Hexbugs left over, so I decided to hold a giveaway!
One person will win the two Hexbug Nanos shown above.

Before Emily started school, she protested against anything to do with Justin Bieber. I was surprised that she didn't like him, since every little girl seems to be totally in love with him. Emily, on the other hand, hated him and turned away in disgust every time he appeared on the Disney Channel.
I was like, Okay. Not a big deal.
Then, after the first week of kindergarten, she came home and announced that she liked Justin Bieber and wanted a tshirt with his face on it.
"What? Now you like Justin?" I questioned her.
"Yes," she answered flatly.
"Can I ask why you like him now after wanting to throw up every time you saw a poster or magazine with his face on it?" I asked with one brow raised.
"Because Carly and Kayla love him and have Justin Bieber shirts!" she exclaimed.
Great. I've convinced her that drinking and smoking is bad for you. I can only hope that when she hits high school, Carly and Kayla don't come to school with a Budweiser shirt on and a pack of Marlboro lights tucked in their sleeve.
With all the remodeling and business changes in my life right now, I've been putting off going to talk to my insurance agent about getting local business insurance rate. With all that new equipment going in the house, I really want to make sure that it is going to be insured.
I've been thinking about checking into considering my car as a business car to get a break on business car insurance . There is really alot of things to think about to protect your business.
I am thinking about hiring help deliver finished products to clients and I did not know that sites like IIX can get you driving records within 24 hours. I heard that your car insurance could be lower if your employees that are permitted to drive your car have clean records. Something for me to think about.
Next, I'm looking for new camera equipment. I'm a Pentax user and am seriously leaning towards Canon-I DEFINITELY would need to insure that puppy!
Last night, I got an email from Inez, from CowPatty Surprise, a very nice lady who had won a signed copy of my book, Annonymous. She had been so kind to write a review just to be nice because that's just the type of person she is.
Now that school is in full force, teachers are getting to know the children in their classes and where their strength and weaknesses are. My children are bright, but they seem to have problems when it comes to math- I think it might be because they don't like it. Especially Algebra 2 and adding fractions. Heck, I still don't get Adding fractions!
Some big problems most children have are Graphing linear equations and figuring the formula for volume. My son started high school this year. I've been waiting for him to come to me for math help. Imagine NOT having to explain math to your child and letting a pro do it instead?

A squirrel throws a nut at you while you are walking up the pathway to your daughter's school.
A thirty old woman tells you that technically, you could be old enough to be her mother. Whaat? I'm only barely in my forties.
Out of all the cars parked waiting for the kids to get out of school, your car is the only one that picked up that one nail left on the ground.
That same damn squirrel yells at you very loudly as you walk back under his tree.
You pick up your camera bag, not realizing that it wasn't zipped up and your cameras fall out onto the rocky ground below.
You don't realize that your sweats are inside out until AFTER you get to your daughter's school.
Those are the times that you wished you had just stayed in bed.
One issue that I've come across while building my photo studio is the COST. Wow, I didn't realize just how much this is going to cost. Equipment, furniture, decorations, etc. I'm considering updating our computer equipment and purchasing a new printer for photo printing.
I would love to find some savings on these items if possible. I've been looking around and I was thinking about seeing what Dell or HP had to offer. I found this Dell promo page and they even have deals on cameras-yeah! I really would love to try a Canon. I just don't know which one to go with or if I want to invest in all new lens. Ouch.
I used to just buy HP products, but lately I haven't bought any HP electronics. I found this HP coupon code that has some interesting deals. I think that I'll probably get my printer through HP.
I just found a great deal on some seamless paper rolls for backgrounds and they are on their way-yeah! I think I'm on a roll on saving money on this project, thus making it happen faster. I'll be checking out http://www.savings.com for my other needs and then maybe I'll have the money to get the white loveseat I want so bad!

I have been busy with my photography business and as I mentioned in my other post, I'm excited that we are redoing the recroom to also serve as my studio since I don't have anywhere to shoot when the weather starts getting too cold to shoot outdoors.
I was given the opportunity to review a product from Fracture.com. I was anxious to try this out since being a photographer, I am always open to new ideas when it comes to photography products.
Fracture is the fastest, easiest, best way to get your pictures from your camera to your wall.
From Fracture explaining their product:
When I started my order, I found the website to be easy to use and my photo came quickly and safely to my doorstep. I am redoing my recroom to a studio, so I don't have this up yet-sorry!It is light and thin. Mine was only a 8x10 but, I would love to see what a larger size would look like!
Their prices are very reasonable and I am definately recommending this to my clients.
Try this out for yourself and see what you think!
I received a free Fracture frame for review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own.
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. Maybe you know someone who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis? Finding a cure might be something that happens in the future, but right now, there is no cure.
What are Ms Symptoms ?
The symptoms are surprisingly mild. Tingling sensations, mild numbness, feeling weak or occasional urge to urinate. Your doctor may not even think to do a test for MS. Pretty scary to know that something that simple could mean that your central brain system could have been attacked by this horrible disease.
Did you know that there is a Multiple Sclerosis diet that one can follow to maintain a healthy life. It's pretty simple, just include vegetables, grains, fruits, low-fat diary foods and legumes, with minimal amounts of fish, lean meats and skinless poultry.
If you are curious about learning more about Multiple Sclerosis, you can visit allaboutms.com. This site has information on what to eat, pregnancy and MS, family life and a whole lot more informational articles on this disease.
I think my Labor Day weekend was literally a labor weekend. Friday, I was told at the last minute that we were going to meet some of my husband's friends for a late dinner.
Hello? Wedding to shoot next day and I have a massive stress headache? Fortunately, my husband likes to ignore me and went ahead and let them know that we'd be there.
Ever since our family has grown by three, we have outgrown our house. We have been planning on finding a bigger house for the last year. There are many decisions to make when you decide to move.
First, you have to make is deciding what real estate company to go with. Choosing the right company doesn't have to be hard. Think about what you want out of your real estate agent and do your research and ask other people that recently moved for their opinion. Picking someone who is right for you is important since some Realtors have you sign contracts, binding you with them. Some bigger real estate companies that might be a good choice are Mel Foster and Ruhl & Ruhl.
Another decision to make is whether to hire movers or not. There are lots of moving companies out there. This could be overwhelming without help. The Internet can be a great help in finding good deals on moving. One such site is Billy's Money Saving Club. They can negotiate deals with moving companies and let you compare different moving companies prices and services. For example, if you are looking for Phoenix moving companies, you can find out the best deal you can get from local moving companies in Phoenix.
The best way to make moving easy is to make a checklist of important things you need to do. Go through your checklist so you don't forget anything. Keeping organized is the key step in making moving go smoothly. Soon, you will be all moved in and enjoying your new home!

It's getting around the time for holidays and that means time to visit the theater. It's always fun to get dressed up and take your spouse out for a fun night. Tickets to these events can get expensive, so finding a good deal online would be great.
We were looking into getting Radio City Christmas Spectacular Tickets and found a great deal through ACheapSeat.com. They get access to tickets specials before other ticket holders do. This would come in handy if we decide to go see a football game this year. I know that tickets to see the Steelers can be high.
I know a friend of mine wanted to find out about Boston Celtics Tickets . All he would need to do is check on this site to find out how much cheaper seats would be through them. The same if you needed Jersey Boys Tickets as well.
So easy and the best deals, how could you go wrong? Tickets would make a great present as well and if your relatives are as hard to buy for as mine, this would make their day!
