A Halloween Wedding

A few years ago I was contacted by a couple that asked me if I could marry them on Halloween(I am a notary and authorize to marry people in the state of Florida) I'd never done anything like this but I did agree to it.

I informed my wife of this request and she really got into the spirit of the holiday she purchased a mask and a bloody dagger for me and witch hat and mask for herself and off we went to perform the wedding. I have to admit this was one of the most enjoyable weddings that I have officiated at. The couple were dressed up as Gould's and all the guests came in costume also it was really a sight to see. I married them on the balcony overlooking their pool the ring bearers were two skeletons standing on each side of the bride and groom creepy but a good time was had by all and I'm sure this was a wedding that none of the guest will ever forget.

Big and Tall Clothes

If you are a person that is six feet tall or more and has a weight to match your height, I know you have run into certain problems. To purchase clothing that fits you correctly and in stylish as well as comfortable to wear is hard to find. Many people who fit into this category usually have a problem finding the proper clothing in a regular retail store in your local mall, right? Custom made is the best option but not too many to find.

But, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There are now specialty clothing stores that cater big and tall clothes that are just right for you. Did you know that there are many national brands that carry clothing made especially for the big and tall person? There are actually numerous businesses that sell such clothing and have over 500 retail stores in the United States, Canada and England focusing on the big and tall customers.

It is at your advantage to shopping in a store that caters to the big and tall for they understand your needs. They provide the most current trends in dress, casual and active apparel all in a range of hard to fit sizes. Do not despair now, there are stores for you and you may shop and feel comfortable that you will find the proper size and fit for all your clothing needs.

Alternative Honeymoon

You have plan the perfect wedding and now you are looking forward to your honeymoon. But after checking your bank account, you realize you may not have adequate funds to run off to some exotic place in the world unless of course, you have a rich uncle who will pay for it. Most people do not fit into this category.

But do not stress over this. There are some other alternatives available. You could take a bus tour of the USA but, I would not recommend this unless you are looking for an early divorce.

Lodging is a major expense when planning a honeymoon except of course airfare. So let us examine option number two. Bring your accommodations with you, go camping and enjoy the great outdoors and fresh air. There are many beautiful and exciting places for you to visit. The advantage here? You probably won't spend over $50 a day for your lodging and have fun to :-).

Let me give you an example of a great camping honeymoon. How about Disney World in Florida? Disney World is a great getaway. They have great campsites located at their Ft. Wilderness Resort as low as $48 a night. There are many on-site activity such as horseback riding, swimming and tennis just to mention a few.

You have many destinations to choose from so; get out that old sleeping bag and tent from the garage and begin planning and exotic and beautiful honeymoon.

Hawaii Island

If you're looking for a vacation spot with mild temperatures, tropical lush landscaping and clean beaches then I recommend Hawaii. Many years ago, I spent days in Hawaii and enjoyed every moment of it. At one time, I had even considered making a permanent move in Hawaii. I heard that Hawaii is home to the largest volcano in the world?Waikiki Beach is famous for its surfing and luxury beach hotels. Tourists come from around the world just to enjoy their famous recreational facility. There is also a magnificent zoo, aquarium and exotic flowers. You can also find great shopping at the international market which is the best open air shopping market on the island. Hawaii is the home for the most beautiful corals in the world. You can take a glass bottom boat tour and this is something that you will always remember forever.

Of course, if you're an American and a patriot, you should visit Pearl Harbor. You will get a very solemn and quiet feeling when you walk through Pearl Harbor paying your respects to the people who died there during the war. If you are considering purchasing a house or property with a Hawaii MLS, I would suggest that you use a reputable agent. Just like any other place in the world you must have a professional real estate agent who is expert and knows the area so well.

Tarpon Springs

Tarpon Springs is only a short drive from Tampa Florida and well worth the effort. They have a great beach there and if you don't like crowds this is the place for you. Tarpon Springs is known for its sponges as a matter of fact it claims to be the sponge capital of the world they even have a sponge museum that will give you a complete history of sponge diving in the area. Greek immigrants settled the city and their traditions and culture can be seen there today. As you wander through the streets it is like stepping back in time to a small Greek village there are many fantastic restaurants family-owned where you may enjoy typical Greek cuisine. So if you are looking for a little bit of of the Greek islands right here in Florida you must visit Tarpon Springs.

Sweets and Cavity

With the rock bottom economy that we have right now, everybody is hurting financially. Food, clothing and shelter tops the priority needs for an ordinary who are trying to make ends meet. Tight budgeting as well as cutting some expenses and prioritizing the most important needs of the family is the best option to save money. But, health care should be on the priority list, right? I would and I will make it sure that my family can go to the dentist, can visit the doctor and will have a preventive health check-up once in awhile.

The children are vulnerable with cavities since they love to eat sweets and chocolates. Each family should have a Family Dentist for dental cleaning needs of each member of the family. To refrain from cavities, we need to visit our dentist regularly either for cleaning or other dental needs.

If we don't have dental insurance budget and if something happens, it will boomerang our financial budgeting. We should set aside for dental insurance so that our family will be covered for dental needs. Are you looking for a family dentist? Check out smilegeneration.com which is a good resource to find a good family dentist in your area. Visit the Website today!

Let's Go Cruising

After the wedding and honeymoon, you have settled down to everyday life and begin to contend with the hustle and bustle of the normal world. After the first year of marriage you need to break away from the norm. I can't think of a better way than to go on a cruise.A breath of fresh sea air can be beneficial to the soul and a great deal of fun. Most cruise companies have all inclusive packages and your expenses really depend on what type of cruise you pick. Also, once you have arrived on the ship and are shown to your cabin you only unpack once. You know that you will have an unlimited variety of meals.

Taking Chances

Wedding Day is memorable when you marry someone you love and you are determined to live the rest of your lives together. That's easy to do when you plan together and you comprise with what you both want. Marriage is a bond that ties both parties for better or worse amidst all the temptations of this world and it will seal the loyalty forever.

For me, it probably is the most sensible decision I made in life. Sometimes, men are doing all the crazy stuffs in life such as planning the move on how to attract women. And stick on that forever and never grow up! I heard one of the guys say that. It was absurd because some people are focus on that alone. They forgot the most important things to do in this life. The essence of living is to meet that someone halfway and build a family to make life worth living for.

There is no book that will teach someone the how's and effectively turn the life for better. Life is a gamble and everyone should take the risk provided we know what we need in life. Be responsible and career-oriented! Grow up! Most of all, be yourself so that women will be attracted to you! If that someone comes your way and you can't live life with out her, marry her. Life is taking chances, that's what it is.

Romantic Getaway

After the wedding of coarse you are looking forward to your honeymoon. There are many exciting places to choose from Mexico, the Bahamas or even somewhere in the Caribbean on an exotic island.

Let me suggest Marco Island off Florida's southwest coast. Love the beach? Want a clean and safe atmosphere that invokes the tropics? Then Marco Island is a place for you it catereds to you and you will find comfort and relaxation and rekindle the spirit of romance if you come for a stay.

One of the most recommended hotels on Marco Island for a honeymoon is the Marco Island Marriott resort.

Popsicles to Suit Any Taste

Guest post written by Sharona Wyatt:

I'm pretty big on variety. I can never seem to fix just one dessert. I'm always worried that someone doesn't like chocolate, or someone will think that they have to have chocolate for dessert. So you could say that I over fix desserts. But there are worse things that I could do as a mother and wife.

We had a lot of our family over last weekend for my son's birthday and while they were over here I served them homemade popsicles. But I wanted to serve a good variety of flavors, so I looked up a whole bunch of recipes online. While I was looking up recipes before then, I ran across the site internetSERVICENEWYORK.com. My husband and I looked through it and decided that we needed to switch our home internet service over to it, so we did.

I made three different kinds of popsicles, chocolate fudge, cherry and then strawberries and cream. I think that the variety was a good choice and we didn't have any left over because people loved them so much!

Affordable Beach Weddings

Planning a formal wedding can be very stressful. You might want to consider having your wedding on the beach in Central Florida. This would surely cut down the stress factor and can be every bit as nice as a formal wedding. In some cases, you will be remembered more than the traditional church wedding. The beauty of having a beach wedding is you can kick off your shoes and go barefoot on the sand and just wear a formal attire. You may have a small wedding with just a few guest or a large formal affair with as many guest as you want, this is strictly up to you.The cost of a wedding on the beach really depends on what kind of ceremony you would prefer. There is just a simple ceremony with the bride and groom, the officiant and few witnesses which is very inexpensive. This wedding probably in the range of a few hundred of dollars. Or you could go the route of a beach wedding catered by one of the local hotels located on the beach. Most of the hotels will work with you in planning and attend to what you would require but fix on staying in your budget.They have different plans such as a sunrise or morning wedding with a breakfast reception or a sunset wedding with an evening reception. Just like in any formal wedding, you would make arrangements as to the menu you would require and how many people to attend the reception which by the way can be held outside on the hotel deck. There are many options open to you and this will depend on on how much you want to spend on your wedding. A beach wedding for your special day would be romantic, memorable and fun for you, your family and guests.

Home Mortgage

Planning a wedding is very stressful but I think purchasing a home beat it by a long shot. Buying a home is one of the most exciting objective in a person's life. I remember when I purchase my first condo and I could not believe that it's mine. In fact, I had trouble sleeping for few days thinking about my first real estate property. It is like a wedding which is a very emotional experience and very personal. Anyway, if you are planning to buy a home, make sure that your credit history is good.

A person with a good FICO score will naturally have less stress than one with poor credit. If you have a credit score of 700 or over you could encounter some problems but only minor ones that could be resolved quickly as this is an excellent credit rating. But, if your credit is bad, put aside your fears. Even if you have a poor credit rating, filed bankruptcy or gone through a foreclosure, it does not mean you cannot buy a home. You most certainly can buy a home with bad credit but you will be paying more than a person who has an excellent credit.

If you have poor credit, you must do your homework when purchasing a home. You must do research on lender companies which are known as hard money lenders. They may require you to put down between 20 and 35% of the selling price. Another avenue would be to check out the guidelines for an FHA loan. If you qualify, you could put down as little as 3.5% . Some lender's interest rate will be very high and the loan terms are not as favorable because they could contain a pre-payment penalty and could be adjustable. Just make sure that you know your financial responsibility when you purchase a house. In that way, you will not be pinned in a money pit.

Significance of Credit Scores

Are you planning to buy a house where you plan to live most of your life? If you have a good credit then, obtaining a mortgage should not be too difficult. There is definitely an advantage to the person who has a good FICO score. This is the score that most lenders use to judge the credit worthiness of the borrower. A score of 640 or better will give you certain advantages such as low percentage of interest on your loan. This could be as low as 3.5% on your fixed 30 year mortgage.In the first quarter of 2011, nearly half of all mortgages went to people with credit scoresabove 750 on the FICO scale. .Back in 2005 your credit score did not really matter as much as it does today. In those days, you could get a loan by having a job and a Social Security number. Those were the days of easy credit. Mortgage lenders today are putting a lot of emphasis on the borrower's FICO score so; there is a definite advantage to having a good credit score when searching for a home mortgage. You can definitely see the advantage there of having a good credit score when obtaining a mortgage as lending has tightened. In a nutshell, a good credit score of 720 or over will help you qualify for the best interest rates. For more information, check out the link here.

The Sky

The sky is such a beautiful creation by God and it gives us inspiration just by staring at it.
It amazed me to see the different formation of the clouds. Sometimes, I can visualized figures of animals, things and even faces of people.
I love staring at the skies during sunrise and sunsets because it somehow gives me the freedom to hope.
Stormy skies are not pleasant to watch. It's scary and deadly.

These pictures were taken in Ocean Springs Mississippi.

Interesting Activity

When I visited the family of my sister, I noticed that my nephew was playing a game on the TV monitor. I was curious and asked him what he was doing and he replied that he was playing Free Online Games. He seemed to be having a good time. As I watched him play, I was fascinated at how much he really enjoyed playing the different games that were offered in the program. I think it was a fantastic way to keep the children occupied with something that they really enjoy.
