Hip 2 Save

I had never been to Hip 2 Save before.

The lady I babysit for is always talking about the deals she finds on there so I decided to check it out. I love saving money and getting good deals so I think this site will be useful. The site is filled with info about coupons and deals in places that many people like to shop. I signed up for the daily email so I can get the full scoop on each day's deals!

Myrtle Beach, SC

I've never been to Myrtle Beach, SC.

I saw on TV a lady being awarded a vacation to Myrtle Beach. I wanted to see what is available there. Here are the things I found: Sixty miles of sandy beaches. The Boardwalk. Fishing. Amusements and water parks. Golf courses. Historical sites. Outlet malls. The Skywheel Ferris Wheel. The pirates dinner show. Looks like there is a lot in Myrtle Beach....

25th Anniversary trip

I've never been on a 25th Anniversary trip.

But this year we will celebrate our 25th anniversary with a trip. A cruise. We have the trip bought but have not decided our itinerary yet. But knowing it's a cruise, I KNOW I need to lose some weight before I go. I've been thinking about how to best approach this. I have seen a lot of  things like available, both in stores and online. I just don't know that this is the route I want to take. I already work out a lot, but now I am going to have to implement some real discipline and work on my intake (eating) as well. Hopefully I will have some of the same mental toughness that I use during my training to help me shed some pounds before our only 25th anniversary trip!

Niagra Falls

I've never been to Niagra Falls.

My in-laws went last fall. They took the boat trip into the falls. And yes, you have to wear the raincoats! They told us how amazing, how breath-taking it is.  I just saw the live video of the live stunt about to take place over the Falls tonight. I have to agree, the falls do look amazing, breath-taking. Maybe one day I can view them in person!

I've never been involved in concessions.

I have noticed though that in many entertainment venues these elo touch screen monitors where you can order and even pay for concessions. This is a pretty good idea as it eliminates the need for long lines and allows customers to peruse, order and pay at their convenience. It seems like using these touch screens can make concession lines move more smoothly.

B Cycle

I've never been to B Cycle.

This is a new program recently launched in Houston, TX. It features bicycles that can be rented by the hour, day or with a yearly pass. The bikes are currently located in a few places in the core of the city with 200 more bikes slated to be added. You can rent the bikes from any B kiosk and simply return at any kiosk making a short jaunt through the city a little easier. These bikes are sturdy three gear cycles, and are designed for comfort, claims being made that they can even be ridden in heels!

Backyard Playground

I've never been to Backyard Playground.

This custom swing sets richmond va provider seems to have a lot of creative ways to turn backyards into true playgrounds. Just browsing through the photo gallery gives lots of ideas and ways to make your own yard your very own playground.
