Straight Talk

You guys know how much I love to save money. I’m always looking for extra ways to save on our monthly bills. Well I have fallen for Straight Talk Hook, line and sinker

As soon as our cell phone contracts are up, I think we’ll be making the switch to Straight Talk’s unlimited plans. They don’t have contracts which is huge for me. They also don’t charge for activation. I have never understood why that’s ok for a company to charge me for using their service. Not only does Straight Talk not charge activation, but they don’t charge for termination or for reactivation. They don’t even charge for 411 calls. 

They also offer name brand phones like Android on Straight Talk  LG, Samsung, and Motorola. They have amazing smartphones, with the latest technology like touchscreen, video recording, instant messaging, and voice navigation. 

If you don’t need a fancy phone, they also have gently used phones for just $10. Now that’s a deal! Unlimited monthly service is only $45. That means when Call a friend I don’t have to watch the clock the whole time.

Falling in love with True Blood again

Guest post written by Erica Long

I’ve been watching True Blood since it came out, but during this break between the third and fourth season, instead of just wishing that the new season would come around like I normally do, I started reading the books. I wanted to be caught up to the book that this season is based off of by the time it premiered but I got so sucked into them that I just couldn’t put any of them down!

That’s made me love the series even more and I’ve been looking into a whole bunch of the spoilers for the rest of the season to see if they match up with what I’ve read. One night while I was online browsgin through spoilers, I ran across the website After I looked through it some, I decided to change over my home internet service to it.

I loved the fourth book that the True Blood season 4 is based off of, really because that’s when thinsg start heating up between Sookie and Eric, even though it takes Eric’s amnesia to make it happen. But I’m OK with that.

Pass the Premium Rum!

My good friend Impulsive Addict and I have been talking about one day having a blog meet up. After reading all of her drunken, I mean fun stories of blogger meet ups, I wanted to join in the fun! I know that  I better stock up on premium dark rum or I’m going to have one grumpy blogger friend on my hands!  Zacapa premium rum looks like it’d be a delicious way to celebrate our bloggy friendship. I know she’s a big fan of the Captain but Zacapa has it’s own Society where you can get rewards for joining and learn a little something about rum too.

Did you know Zacapa rum is aged based on a process used by the Spaniards 500 years ago to age Sherry. It involves pure cane sugar and cool mountain air. With the amount of rum we will probably consume on our epic meetup, we will probably benefit from joining the society and getting cool rewards. Plus it’d be nice to use the excuse that we’re “researching”. 

If you’re a fan of rum and like to get all crazy like we do, you should register at and check out the society. Zacapa

Online Dating Just Got Cooler

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of luvfree for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Any long time readers out there know the story of how Match and I met: on an online dating site. I know there are more and more people taking the plunge and trying them out and I say, go for it! You never know when you might meet your soulmate. I remember one of the first things Match said to me when we first started dating and I asked what made him sign up for a dating site. “It’s just not that likely that I was ever going to meet my future wife in a bar.” And look how true that was!

Now the question is which site to use? It used to be there were just a handful to choose from. There are more and more these days. A lot of them are the same basic formula. You create a profile with pictures and you fill out a basic profile, and maybe you get to instant message with someone you’re interested in.

I recently heard about, which is a 100% free online dating site. First off, the fact that it is free sets it apart from a lot of dating sites out there. I think what’s the most unique about it is the live video chat feature. How fun! It allows you to “meet” that guy or girl you think is pretty cool before actually going and meeting them in the real world.

I think this is a really great idea for those that might be nervous about meeting someone in person that you’ve only met online. You’d get to hear their voice and see their face and know they are a real person. You could interact and get to know each other, so by the time you have your first date you don’t feel like you’re going in blind. I think for all the single readers out there it’s definitely worth a try. Plus it’s free! You can’t beat that!

Vegas Anyone?

You want to hear something crazy? Match has never been to Vegas. It just seems like something he would have done, especially living on the West Coast and with flights so cheap there. But Match isn’t one for crowds and it’s never really appealed to him. I think it might be fun to do someday.
I think the most important thing would be to make sure we stay in a place that doesn’t have to regularly use Pest Control Services. If we do end up at a place like that, hopefully they use a good quality Las Vegas Exterminator like Las Vegas Pest Control. Ideally we’d stay in a nice enough place that we’d never have to worry about that though!
