Want To Look Younger? Quit Smoking!

The fastest way to look younger and live longer is to quit smoking!  It is so bad for your health.  A federal judge just ordered tobacco companies to publish corrective statements that say they lied about the dangers of smoking and that they must disclose the health effects of smoking including the death on average of 1,200 people per day!  Among the required statements is:  "Smoking kills, on average, 1,200 Americans.  Every day.  Smoking kills more people than murder, suicide, drugs, AIDS, car crashes, and alcohol combined, and second-hand smoke kills over 3,000 Americans a year."  All cigarettes cause cancer, lung disease, heart attacks, and premature death.

In Favor of Marriage-Don't Delay!

I am a strong advocate of marriage.  It is so important to your health and happiness to be married and now statistics are backing that up!  Many couples are delaying marriage for financial reasons but if you look a bit deeper, studies have now found that married couples actually make more money than their single counterparts.  People who are serious about being together and who commit to marriage will find that their economics fall in line.  Consensus Bureau stats show that the median income of married men is higher than that of single men, $55,958 to $34,634.  There is a misconception that one needs to have money before getting married.  But the truth is, getting married will help a couple be more focused in their goals and careers and thus it will increase their ability to earn better wages.

Get Your Vitamin D

Everyone needs 10 minutes of sunshine a day.  This is essential to your daily dose of vitamin D.  You can sit outside or on your deck.  You can go out and walk in the sunshine.  You can go out and rake some fall leaves.  You can walk your dog.  You can plant some tulip bulbs.  You can go outside and read for a minute.  Whatever it takes to get your body in the sunlight is worth it.  It lifts your spirit too.

My Husband, Big D

I LOVE my life!  I have a great and handsome husband who works so hard every day!  He is a financial adviser for a large company.  He got his M.B.A. later in life while working full time for Symantec.  I am so proud of him!  He loves baseball especially the San Francisco Giants and loves politics.  He is a home teacher and serves in the High Priest presidency.  He loves to go to the temple with me monthly.  He loves Mexican food and has more opinions than anyone I know.  He loves chips, peanuts, pretzels, popcorn, and pistachios (in bed).  He loves to read the scriptures and Louis L'Amour books.  He loves biographies too. He does baseball wind ups every night while he watches sports.  He used to jog on our mini trampoline. He is passionate about keeping America strong and free.  He is a delegate for the Republican party.  Dave can talk to anyone about anything!  He is the most determined person I know. He is loyal to me in every way.  The only thing that makes him upset is when I turn on the light at night, having Bruiser (our tiny dog) in our bedroom, cats of any kind, socialism, disrespectful people, long commutes... I am so glad that we are an eternal couple/family and that together we have 12 children. He has helped me raise my 6 children in a very good way.  He has shown my kids how a happily married couple should interact. He writes the best little love notes and brings me roses from our garden.  He never complains about mowing our big back yard or taking out the trash.  He even cleans the bathrooms every Saturday!    

Yikes! I Can't Sleep!

They say that sleep makes you happier and healthier!  I am a big believer in getting enough sleep but there comes a time when some things just ruin my sleep!  Last night I took my melatonin and fell right to sleep.  Then in the middle of the night my husband decided to give me a little love pat on the face and ended up jabbing my eyes (ouch!).  Then I went back to sleep and he started to jab me with his feet!  Then I went back to sleep and he started to talk loudly in his sleep.  Enough already!  Then I was awoken by someone SNORING!  It was so loud I thought the roof of my house was going to jump off!  Oh well, enough for getting a good night's sleep.  I guess it's time for a little mud pie...

What Should I Wear Today?

"What should I wear today?" is almost as hard as "What should I make for  dinner tonight?".  Here are a few photos to give you some ideas.  My go-to outfit is always jeans or pants with a nice jacket (of any color or design).  My other no brainer outfit is a denim shirt with colored jeans and riding boots.
