2014 Oct Visiting Teaching Free Printable

I really should be studying for my math test on Friday...but I would much rather be doing this!

I was excited to read the visiting teaching message this month and like so many others, the thought to bake bread entered my mind. I wish I was an amazing cook and made my bread from scratch, however, it was the gourmet box.

I thought about just giving my sisters the box with a quote on it so they could bake their own, cause I'm lazy thoughtful like that. Then I decided they were busy ladies and might appreciate me making it for them.

Feel free to click the link and download a little banner for your loaves.

I wrapped my bread in plastic wrap. Then wax paper then taped my little quote strip on there. Finished off with a nice little ribbon. Sugar and spice and everything nice. Fall (pumpkin bread) is definitely in the air and I'm lovin it!

Photographers : Why they are worth what they charge

I wrote this report for my communications class last fall.  If you remember I requested some information from anyone that has taken pictures professionally as a photographer and anyone that has employed professional photographers to take their pictures.

I had two different surveys, one for photographers and one for the client. One survey was about how the photographers felt about their pricing and business. The other survey was how the clients felt about the services of the photographers they employed in regard to pricing and their experience with the photographer.  The following is my final research paper.  You could just start with the introduction.

Here is the link that will take you directly to the paper.

Cellular service and Wifi Calling; the new, not so new thing.

Since we've moved out of a big city with 4G network and into a small city with no G network, the realization of how dependent we've become on our cellphones became all too clear.

I have been a long time, loyal T-mobile customer since I was old enough to get my own cellphone. I got my own cellphone with my own plan probably when I was 21. I did have a cellphone in high school under my parents plan but I didn't pay for it.   My very first cell phone billed to me was with Sprint but, soon after I switched to T-mobile because the plans were so much cheaper.  

Some years ago I talked my parents into switching to T-mobile because I have loved them for so many years. I tell everyone how much I love their customer service, because time and time again they have made me the happiest customer ever.

Having said what a loyal customer I am, let me tell you how I feel about their new advertisements for wifi calling.  If it is a surprise to you, T-mobile is now selling only phones that al…

Reflections on last year.

I want to blog a little bit, every now and then I get in that bloggy mood.

I'm linking up with Mama'sLosinIt weekly writing prompts.

My topic is what I was blogging about last year and what's changed since then.

Oh my heck where do I begin?

If you want to catch up  :
This was last Aug 
This was last Sept
and this was last Oct

I wasn't blogging all that much as you can see because I was in school full-time, I still am, but I am so tired of education in my life.  My son had started Kindergarten and I was feeling like a proud mom. My husband hadn't gotten into grad school and I was stressing out about him finding a job.  Also, around this time the big government shut down fiasco was happening and my mom wasn't working as a result.  She still got backpay for all the days they were shut down so I don't know what the big deal was, however, I still really like that post in Oct.

So much has changed since then, for the better. Last year was the hardest time of my life …
