club volleyball

I've never been to  club volleyball.

But we are fixing to find out what it's all about...we just registered our daughter for a club volleyball team! It is a small club, with only three teams and one coach. This kept the costs waay down. And the coach was also understanding and supportive about church and family activities. I hope this is going to be a good experience for her, one in which she can grow as a player and also keep her priorities in order!

economics seminar

I've never been to an economics seminar.

On Jan. 21, 2011 the Mises Institute is offering a half-day economics seminar for high school students. This will provide an introduction to economics and its importance to history and society. It will also identify the five critical concepts in economics: exchange, opportunity cost, the division of labor, entrepreneurship, and inflation.  The seminar takes place at the Hilton Houston Post Oak and is free of charge.

I've never been to Uganda.

But one day I would like to make a trip there, as I've never been anywhere in Africa. The only huge problem is, if I were to go, who would take care of my house, watch my pets, and pay my bills? Well, actually that last part is easy, because if I used abt electronics coupons, I could pay my own bills quickly and easily from anywhere in the world. Even Uganda.

acne travel gift set

I've never been to get a travel size acne set.

But what a great idea! I mean, travel wreaks havoc to your system and that can include outbreaks of acne. If you are traveling long distances or just for a weekend, the travel size of the best acne treatment can be the perfect item to stash in your overnight case. Anything that can help me be my best while traveling is a must. And anything that takes up less space is on the list. So using these travel size acne treatments will likely be on many folks packing lists.

Fry's for School Supplies

I had never been to Fry's for school supplies.

I did not realize they carried school supplies til just a couple of weeks ago. It's perfect actually. They are fairly close to home and have a pretty large selection of school and office supplies. They have the regular items like pens and paper and markers and such. But they also had back packs, poster board and even project boards. Now I know where to go last minute when a kid yells, "hey Mom, I need…"

anti-wrinkle creams

I've never been to buy anti-wrinkle creams.

Not because I don't need them. But I just wouldn't know what to buy. And just how do the anti wrinkle creams work? I know most are supposed to tighten your skin, providing a younger, firmer look. Hm, maybe I do need to try this. Over my whole body!

hair loss products

I've never been to purchase hair loss products.

I have however been to purchase things to make hair thicker or stronger. It's just hard for women when their hair starts thinning out. As a kid I hated how thick my hair was-it was such a pain. But now that my hair has been falling out for years, I am starting to realize that I would rather have thicker hair than be losing my hair! I have heard there are hair loss products for women. I guess these work the same as they do for men. I am not sure if they prevent future hair loss or promote hair growth. Either way if it stops hair loss...

Race for the Cure

I've never been to Race for the Cure.

This is the fun run/walk sponsored by the Susan Komen foundation. It is to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research and education locally. Some of the funds will be used to help those in need of breast cancer care as well. Because my mom is now breast cancer survivor, we are going to join the Race for the Cure in Houston on Oct. 2 to celebrate her health.

teen car insurance

I had never been to get teen car insurance before.

When my son bought his own car, we knew we wanted him to hear for himself about how much insurance is and how to go about getting it. So I took him to visit our insurance agent, who gave him the insurance quote for his new (used) car. Our son listened as the agent patiently explained all the options to him. Though our son could not afford all the options presented, he did not opt for liability only. We felt like he made a good decision and is hopefully a more aware car owner.

college finance boot camp

I've never been to a college finance boot camp .

But that is just what my son and I have been invited to. This day is supposed to be geared toward helping high school seniors learn all they need to know for their upcoming college admissions. It is like a crash course in essay writing, requesting reference letters, prepping for admissions tests and a timeline of what to do and when to do it. The kids also get a Dave and Buster's Power Card!

Wii Fit

I've never been to workout with the Wii Fit.

I saw the most hilarious video parody for Wii Fit yesterday. I doubt the makers of Wii and the Fit videos would appreciate the humor involved. I've never seen the Wii Fit or tried it out. I do know a few folks who use/have used it. For the most part, it probably is better to combine that workout with Diet pills fat burners and good healthy eating habits. Maybe Wii Fit can be an part of a healthy lifestyle.

America's Got Talent

I've never been to America's Got Talent.

We have watched many of this season's contestants. Tonight they will announce the one grand prize winner. After that I heard the top ten acts are going on a nationwide tour. One of the cities they will perform at is Houston. I may have to check into tickets for that. I know my kids and nephews would enjoy seeing the performance.

SavageMan Tri

I've never been to the SavageMan tri.

This triathlon takes place in Maryland. The scenery looks stunning, as it takes place in September and the leaves are already turning their fall colors. This triathlon is a tough one. It is in a hilly area and has earned the name "Savage" for that reason. Even the shorter length tri has enough hills to maintain its "savage" name. Doing triathlons is one of the best weight loss formulas for me, and they're fun too! Maybe one day I'll be able to join in the SavageMan tri.

I had never been to swimplan.com before.

I learned about this site today where you can get free swim workouts. You can get them customized to your level. When you first sign up, you will be under the Premium account. This will expire in fourteen days, but you can still log in for the free workouts after that. I am hoping this will be a great place to find some variety in my workouts.

hidden beach area

I've never been to a certain hidden little beach area.

My sister came upon a small beach area nearby. It seems as if it might be part of a community but there were very few people there yesterday evening. I don't know if it often gets crowded, but it looks like the perfect place to practice open water swimming! There was a sign posted for non-residents to pay, but there was no one or no where to pay. I am going to drive over and check it out again, and hopefully get in an open water swim.
