Family Fun

My dad was in the Navy and until I was eight years old he was stationed in San Diego, California. I loved living out there. I got to go to the beach a lot and it was easy to spend all day outside. The biggest memory I have from my time out there is when we would go to Disneyland. My sister was three years younger than me, so mom would take her around to do things that were geared toward kids her age and I would get some quality time with my dad. We went around and rode rides and it was a really great experience. I loved having that father-daughter time. If you haven't been, you should purchase a disneyland ticket. It really is a magical place.

Review: Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane

Since the age of eighteen, Joseph has been assassinating people on behalf of a cause that he believes in but doesn’t fully understand. The War is ageless, hidden in the shadows, governed by a rigid set of rules, and fought by two distinct sides — one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Soldiers in the War hide in plain sight, their deeds disguised as accidents or random acts of violence amidst an unsuspecting population ignorant of the brutality that is always inches away.


Killing people is the only life Joseph has ever known, and he’s one of the best at it. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away to complete a punishingly dangerous assignment, Joseph meets a girl named Maria, and for the first time in his life his singleminded, bloody purpose fades away.


Before Maria, Joseph’s only responsibility was dealing death to the anonymous targets fingered by his superiors. Now he must run from the people who have fought by his side to save what he loves most in this world. As Children of Paranoia reaches its heart-in-throat climax, Joseph will learn that only one rule remains immutable: the only thing more dangerous than fighting the war. . .is leaving it.

The first time I heard about Children of Paranoia, I thought, now this is a book I need to read.  I love the title and the story sounded like something that I would really enjoy.  I wasn't disappointed!  I was engrossed in the pages of this novel and even though certain parts were pretty predictable, it is a great read.  I give it five stars!  I will not be surprised if this book is made into a major motion picture.


 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.

Zappos Coupons

I'm actually really excited that the weather is changing and it is getting colder outside.  To me, wintertime is almost magical.  I enjoy wearing layers, scarves, gloves and boots.  I decided that this year I want to get myself a new pair to add to my shoe collection.  A pair that screams my name and makes me want to put them on even if I'm not going anywhere.  Most likely, I will purchase discount shoes online and use a Zappos coupon.  I'm hoping that I will get such a good deal that I am able to buy a couple of pairs. 

I can already picture myself all bundled up and freezing my tail off.  Even though that can be a bit of a drag after a while, I still prefer the colder weather.  I think that a lot of that has to do with the holidays that take place during this time.  I love Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  All three holidays put me in a really good mood.  With Christmas coming, I can use some Zappos coupon codes for gifts for my friends and family.  There are certain people that I know who love nothing more than a new, stylish pair of shoes.

"Heaven Help Her. 

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier?s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can?t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth?s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well."

The story that Alexandra Adornetto built in her bestselling debut, Halo, comes alive in action-packed and unexpected ways, as angels battle demons, and the power of love is put to the test.

Would You Like To Spend Some Time At Kalahari Resorts?

This post brought to you by Kalahari® Resorts. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am always interested in visiting new places and one place on my list is Kalahari Resorts Sandusky.  The hotel has amazing amenities including Kalahari Spa, Safari Adventures Animal Park, Pottery Pizzazz and much more!  The spa and animal park are calling my name! 

 

The Sandusky water park has over 500,000 gallons of water.  That's insane!  In a good way, of course.  Interested in going around 40 miles per hour on the Zimbabwe Zipper?  I am, but to be honest, I am a little scared...  The slides and lazy river sound like my kind of fun. 


The Safari Outdoor Adventure Park has all kinds of goodies as well.  There is a rope course, a Zip Line Tour that is 400 feet long and an Adventure Climbing Wall that is 32 feet high.

For the month of September (excluding Labor Day weekend), Sandusky will cost you less than $200 a night.  They also have a promotion going on where you can stay on a Monday for free!  Make sure you follow Kalahari on Facebook and Twitter.

I saved the best news for last.  They are hosting a contest to win a free stay at a Kalahari Resort!  To enter, you must leave a comment on the contest page telling them which amenity you are most excited about trying and tweet a message with the contest rules link using the hashtag #KalahariResorts.  Easy as pie!

Deals You Can't Resist

I am a bargain shopper by nature and before purchasing a product, I do some online research to find out what kind of deals I can take advantage of.  When I am able to find a steal of a deal, I feel a rush of adrenaline and it feels great.  I recently found out about an auction website called dealfun.com.  The auctions start at just $0.01! They have a variety of products, including the iPad, iPhone, LED TV, kindle, laptop, PS3 and more! 

What I really like about this website is that they have beginners auctions for those who are new to this.  That way you have a chance to work on your bidding skills.  They have a win guarantee where if you don't win within the first 24 hours, your bids are reset.   There is no weekly or monthly caps, so you are free to bid on many different items.  The buy it now feature is something that I really like.  If you don't win an item, you can put the bids toward purchasing the product.  Deal Fun has excellent, prompt customer service, so if you have any questions or issues, they will be there to help guide you.
