Are We In The Right Direction

We are traveling to Montana to visit my sister and her family. We did have good and fun time traveling and we just drove from our place to their place. It takes a while to arrive there and it takes us three days before we arrive to our destination from Michigan to Montana.  This is really a long drive but I got to experience again to see other state here in the USA.

While we are driving we got to follow the GPS so that we can arrive to our destination. There are times that my husband said that how accurate is the GPS to our direction. But we did look up also to our computer when we have time to stop if we really in the right direction to our destination. We got to look up the map so that we will not get lost and we know where we are at.

Sometimes we slow down driving for the reason that there is only one way each lane because of the road construction and we have speed it up again when there is no road construction so that we can reach to our destination as fast as we could. But we did enjoy the beauty of the sceneries like the mountain, valleys, farm land, watching different cars in the road and many other things that we encounter along the road while traveling.

Our life is this way, while we travel along our journey through life we need to be sure that we are in the right direction so that we will not get lost and we can reach to our destination safely. We have to check once in a while where we are at in our life. Sometimes we have doubts, fears, trials, stumbling block and feel tired along our journey but we still have to move on and keep going so that we can reach to our destination. We have to make it sure that we did the right thing, enjoy our life and appreciate whatever life would bring to us.

We are not only celebrating for the mother’s that we have celebrated last month as well as the father’s this month. We need give thanks to our father for all the support and for providing us for our needs and wants while we are young until we can stand by our own.

As we all know that being parents a big responsibility. Both mother and father should work together in order to establish a beautiful and successful family. A father is not an easy task to do and being a responsible father you need to provide the needs and wants of the family. The mother is the one who taking care of the kids or children in the home while father is working to provide.

Every family celebrates father’s day in different ways. But we have many inspired ideas to celebrate Father’s day such as giving or sending him greeting cards, give him a call or email him especially if you live from your father, treat him for dinner, prepare food for him, buy gifts for him that he likes and use for his sports, hobbies, clothing, electronic gadgets, tools for his work or household maintenance and many others. 

We have so many great ideas that are available nowadays especially that we have technology that we can easily use to order online. If you don’t have gift ideas yet you can still have time to think and order before Father Day is here. Hope you will have great time with your Father’s Day celebration and don’t forget to express your love and thanks to your father for all the things he has done for you throughout your life. I am sure they will love and cherish those things that you will do for them. Happy Father's Day to all the fathers most especially to my dearest father...

Looking For Great Vacation Spots In Pennsylvania, Try Roadtrip-O-Matic

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PA Tourism for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is here and this is the time that people are planning their summer vacations. The biggest headaches or most common headaches when planning a vacation is where to go, what attractions to see, what hotels or campgrounds to use and even what the best places are for the meals.

When starting to plan our family vacation this year I did what most people do.  I went on the internet and started researching places. What I first got was a very big headache. Then I came across a website called roadtrip-o-matic which specializes in helping you plan roadtrips for one or for your whole family.

visitPA-Roadtrip_box_720px.jpgI got really excited at first… because I missed the part where it's only for pa-roadtrips. I thought it was the entire US and that I'd be able to plan our next vacation. Then I realized it was only for vacations or roadtrips to Pennsylvania.

As I used the roadtrip-o-matic I was able to find many amazing things and places that would be great vacation spots for the whole family. Things or places that we could visit were where the Civil War was at, museums, beautiful gardens, aquarium and even a zoo.

The one I really liked was the PA Romantic Getaway with bed and breakfasts, country inns, small hotels and classic resorts that are romantic and designed to bring the spark back into any relationship. I know my wife and I would love having a vacation where we can reconnect and put the spark back into are marriage.

I sure hope someday roadtrip-o-matic will expand their program to cover the rest of the US. This would sure make peoples life easier and be able to showcase all the great vacation spots located all around the US.

Benefecial Effect On Banana's

Just want to share this how banana helps to our body. I know some of you knows about the benefits of banana but there are some doesn’t. Glad that we are eating bananas every morning for our breakfast, but I did not know how this helps to our body. Learning how banana helps, from now on I will make it sure that we have include banana’s in our diet and food every day.

We all know how monkey love bananas and no wonder why monkeys are active and healthy because of the health benefits that banana contributes to the body system. I would rather eat banana or any fruits than taking medicine. I really don’t like taking medicine that is why I would rather eat healthy foods like fruits and vegetables so that I will not get sick easily.

Banana is one of the best exotic fruit that has many health benefits as well as many other fruit. This also work wonders for headaches and migraines. There is also a study that shows the high amount of potassium and if you are potassium deficient you really need to eat banana.

Their also an article that explain how banana helps to lower blood pressure, lessens the possibility of atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke. It also helps cure headaches and help control blood glucose and many other health benefits. I have read also an article that if you have bananas that  are overripe and soggy you can use this to your roses. The research said that the potassium in the fruit will give nourishment to the roots of the plants and the results is, the flowers will get big and bloom nicer.

Surfing At Waikiki Can Be A Great Vacation

Hawaii has been and will always be a hot spot for vacations. Waikiki, Hawaii is one of the most popular locations this is not only because of the food, location and hotels. But this is also a well known location for surfing and sun.

There are also many locations in Hawaii where you can get surfing lessons and also get the best surfboard rental waikiki has to offer. Complete with lessons for all, anything from the beginner level to the experienced.

One place that I have seen online that specializes with both surf rentals waikiki and surfboard rental waikiki is called Moku. At Moku you can rent a board starting at a low price of $7.00, they also have a wide selection of both short to long boards for you to choose from. Moku is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. This is very near the Waikiki beach and one of the most popular surfing and vacation spots in Hawaii.

What I really liked about their shop is that they are located right at the ocean and any of the boards or surfing equipment that you might be interested in purchasing the same can be rented for you to try first. This way you will know if it is right and fits you on when you’re out surfing. Also you will find many different souvenirs like T-shirts that will help you remember your vacation and surf time in Waikiki, Hawaii.

This does not matter if you are a beginner or looking to get a little help with your surfing style. Moku also has surfing lessons that will fit you. All lessons are a full 1 or 2 hour long and for beginners they have a 100% success rate. Also, they have both group and private lessons. This way you can learn the way that fits your style. You will even go home with memories and experiences that will for last a lifetime. Now is the time to have fun and enjoy your vacation. I will watch for you in Hawaii or maybe I will see you at Moku.

Month of June – Almost Half Year Through

Look, what month we are now? We are already in the month of June. We are almost half year through already. Time is just flying by so fast especially when we are busy, we just really don’t notice till it’s there. We are thankful for the life has to offer with us. We have good times and bad times. But we manage to handle and overcome those life challenges and grateful for blessings that we have every day.

Just a week ago I just celebrated my birthday and I am grateful for that. I have a little gathering for friends here in Michigan and it turn out alright. It’s a lot of work to prepare food and for all the preparation for the gathering but its fun. I don’t mind doing it, just grateful for the gift of life that I am able to enjoy life. As long as I am capable I don’t mind doing it especially if we have the budget to do it, I’d go for it. It makes me tired though right after the gathering but it’s worth it.

I could not make it through without the blessings up above and the special people in my life such my husband and my family. I am grateful for my husband, my family and my mother in-law for the love and support that they have given me and friends that come and celebrate with me that day. Enough for my drama but it is really true.

Now, I’m looking forward for my hubby’s birthday this coming two weeks. I don’t know what and where we going to do to celebrate his birthday. But I know for sure he doesn’t’ like the idea of having a gathering. He likes to celebrate his birthday in a simple way. I bit just me, him and my mother in-law that day. But I have to think and shop for a gift that I can give to him that day.

How about you people? I know schools are over and many people preparing for their outdoor activities and ready for their spring and summer vacations. I am also excited for our vacation plan this third or fourth week of this month. We are going to visit my sister and her family in Montana. I’m so excited to see my niece and nephew. It’s a long drive though but I know for sure we will have good time over there. Hope you will have enjoyable spring and summer time as well, to keep you busy and out of trouble.
