My mom is still contemplating if she’ll give this a try. I hope she will because I’m so excited to see their room transform with these blinds.

Our fun company outing and teambuilding last March at Tanza, Cavite. We drove for about 3 hours and upon arriving at the resort we chilled over a yummy burger snacks then right away settled for the serious teambuilding proper. Along side with the serious talks, all of us fondly pose the cam's way.

Bulgaria has been drawing not only tourists but property buyers from US and nearby European countries this is because property prices are much lower than other destinations in Europe. The most demanded of which is the Albena property.
When my friend gets back I will ask her to recount their vacation and ask how enjoyable their Bulgarian experience was.

Are you fancying a date with a Hollywood celebrity? Check out the free videos at GoFish.com and see for yourself how easy it is to snag a date with none other than hot and sexy Mirelly Taylor who has starred on movies such as Kiss Me Again and Serving Sara and television shows including “Punk’d” and “Numb3rs”. She also appeared and has shown her comedic skills on NBC hit show “Las Vegas”.
Seduce a Celeb is an online first! The online audience actually becomes part of the program through the submission of user videos. First, watch the introduction to the Seduce a Celeb promotion. Mirelly will explain how the promotion works. Second, watch Mirelly's videos with 3 specific calls to action and create a video for each one. Be as creative as possible; now is the time to separate yourself from the competition. Third, upload your videos and you will be entered for a chance to win a date with Mirelly Taylor! How cool and easy is that? Grand prize includes a roundtrip coach-class airfare to Los Angeles, three days and two nights accommodation at Chateau Marmont Hotel and celebrity dream date package at a premier West Hollywood restaurant with Mirelly.
I’ve checked out the recent submissions and I was cracking up when I saw this one. I wonder if he has what it takes to be voted by viewers, judges and of course by Mirelly to be the lucky dream date package winner.

They may seem to be just a small piece of paper but they are just more than that especially for those who have businesses. It is the professional image that is advertised thereby, attracting sales for the business. Professional image means that the cards should be exquisitely printed like those quality prints by ProfessionalBusinessCards.com. Head on to their site and choose from their wide design selection which you can browse by style or by profession. They offer pricing for as low as $3.95 for 100 cards. What I like best about their services is that you get professional, inexpensive and fast results. You can even design your own business cards using their templates. Thus, you don’t need to be a graphic artist to customize, personalize and make it your own.

I scoured their site and I am eyeing to purchase the Lifetime 79910 Shatter Guard 50 Inch Basketball Backboard & Rim Combo.
This basketball combo is composed of steel-framed acrylic backboard and an arena-style Slam-It Pro rim. It also has a backboard pad which provides added protection against injuries. I’m sure my hubby will love this.
You might also want to shop online using coupon codes. Try out Couponchief.com and you’ll find the best deals from merchants like Target, Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, Best Buy, Gap, etc. They have recently made scanning coupons easier and provided “how-to” screencasts for some of their top merchants.
My one and only and the love of my life.
I've fallen in love many times..always with you.

Have you thought already how will you celebrate or what to give your Mom on this significant day? There are a lot of special ways to let your mom or your wife feel that they are acknowledged and honored on this day.
Here are some activities that you can do for Mother’s Day:
1. Plan a picnic
2. Send Mom off for some pampering in a spa
3. Dine out with mom
4. Surprise Mom with a meal especially cooked by you
5. Let Mom rest on this day and do all the chores that she usually does
6. Buy Mom her favorite perfume, make-up, clothes, etc.
7. Create a scrapbook of unforgettable memories that you and your mom shared
8. Give her a gift based on her hobbies and interests
9. Treat Mom to a breakfast in bed
10. Send her a greeting card with your own handwritten message or note
11. Send her a bouquet of Mothers Day roses. Not sure where to buy the finest roses? Check out 1800therose.com and send out the best rose there is.

With that, show her, not only on this day but everyday, how much she matters to you, how thankful you are to her and how deeply you love her for all of your life.

Actually, a number of video-sharing sites have sprouted recently, each having their own innovations and unique features to offer. One of them is Aapka Video, a free online service for Indians and for those who are into Hindi movies and music to watch, upload and share their favorite bollywood videos, and other videos such as crickets, TV shows, MTVs, trailers, user-generated videos and a lot more. It is totally free but you just have to register an account first before you can access the features. All video file types are acceptable for upload with a maximum file size of 100 MB. Functionality is the same as those of other video-sharing sites for uploading and sharing. But what makes them unique is their latest feature which lets you shoot and upload directly from your mobile phone. What’s even more exciting about the them is that they have on ongoing promotion where the most favorite or most viewed video wins an Apple Ipod, now how cool is that? Go and get those cameras start rolling.

Just a backgrounder, it was started by a well-known supplier of photo-safe scrapbooking products, Creative Memories, and this is being observed since 1994. For years, scrapbookers worldwide celebrate their passion for scrapbooking (traditional and digital) on this day.
I can’t wait for what the digiscrapping sites have in store for all the digiscrap enthusiasts like me. I’ve scoured my favorite digiscrapping sites and I got these teasers.
**A Cherry On Top (ACOT): Crop around the Clock for NSD! May 4 -6, 2007
**Scrapbook-bytes.com (SBB) - Watch out for these:
1. Crop Freebie
2. Virtual Sleepover
A slumber party from May 5 to May 6, 2007
**Digital Scrapbook Place (DSP): May 5 - A full day of fun-filled chats, forum challenges, and amazing prizes. Here's a preview of one of their giveaways.
Of course, all these layouts are precious to me and I would definitely keep these “stored memories” cautiously. All these are uploaded in two of my favorite online galleries, in my hard disk and also stored them in a CD for a back-up. Just like an artist, I would surely keep my works protected. I might be overly protective but, in fact, I am also planning to store all these as well my important files with an Online Backup service provider. There’s IDrive-E where I can freely store my files up to 2GB. Isn’t that cool? It is the leading online backup service provider that offers encrypted online backups for free and unlimited storage services at a very nice, cheap deal. As they tag their site, they offer free automated backups without any catch. They have no backup and restore restrictions as well as bandwidth limits or file type restrictions. It is easy, secure, reliable and even offers high-end features such as versioning, incremental back-up and mapped drive back-up.
I am sure you also have important files that you want to be secured. Go back it up using this amazing find.
Love doesn't consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction

There are actually, a lot of good digital SLRs out there, all of which have nice features and advanced functionalities to offer. Basically, there goes my problem. I’m clueless and not adept with understanding photography terms since I’m just a newbie and would just love to have better and higher quality photos for my digital scrapbooking pursuit. Although, who knows, I might also get myself drawn further into photography as a hobby in the future.
I’ve been searching for review sites to help me decide and luckily, I stumbled upon Testfreaks.com where reviews are offered including Canon and Fuji digital cameras. Through the reliable testimonials and comments from professional sources, forums and actual users, I was able to trim down my choices into two: the Canon Powershot S3IS and the Fujifilm Finepix S6500 fd. Now I just have to inquire from our local camera store if they have great deals with these models.
Testfreaks is a new gadget-review and testing site offering professional reviews for electronic products such as Camcorders, cell phones, mp3 players, TVs and many more. It is still in a Beta version but is in the process of developing and building the best consumer information site on the web. At this stage, they are inviting electronics and gadgets enthusiasts to join their web development process and take part in building the biggest consumer information site prior to its official launch in a couple of months.
I can’t wait for the launch and I’m looking forward to its full functionality. I’m sure many consumers will benefit from these testing and review guides.

It’s a sort of all-in-one friendship and online dating site and the best thing about this is, it’s absolutely free. So hop in there right now and meet some of their 2,975 online members at the moment.
