There is a website called RepairPal and it is a great reference for those who want to have an idea of how much a repair should cost, before going to get their car fixed. I love this because I like to have an idea and some sort of knowledge about what I should be paying for car repair and maintenance services. From something simple such as an oil change to major auto repairs, RepairPal makes getting an estimate really easy.
The RepairPal website has different sections including different car types, a list of common car repairs, an area to get a car repair quote and a directory for auto repair shops and dealerships in your area.

This post brought to you by Express. All opinions are 100% mine.
The rainy spring days will soon turn into days of sunny summer fun! During the summer, I often visit the beach since it is so close to us. This means having several swim suits is a must and gives me an excuse to shop the Express Spring 2011 Swim Collection, including monokinis, string bikinis, strapless and halter styles.
I love all the ruffles, glam beaded embellishments and beautiful colors of their new women's swimwear line, but my favorite one is the neon ruffled bikini pictured above. It comes in pink as well, but I think I will change my ways and surprise everyone this summer by wearing something that is not pink to my friend's annual pool party! Plus, yellow is such a happy color. :)
Don't get stuck without a sexy swimsuit this summer! Check out where they are also giving away $200 gift cards to ten lucky ladies and gentlemen. (Yes, they have swim shorts for men too!) To enter, all you have to do is sign up for Express e-mail.
The sweepstakes ends 4.21.11 at 11:59pm, EST. Please remember to check out the sweepstakes rules.
See you at the beach!

Amazon, Etsy or eBay, you can probably find an applique that suits your needs). I also noticed that they sell appliques at Michael's if you are not fond of shopping online.
Price per applique: $3.75 (can usually be found for $3 to $5)
Price for the tank top $2 (it was on clearance)
Price for the shirt $5 (regular price, H&M prices are quite reasonable!)
Therefore, 2 appliques x $3.75 = $7.50 plus $7 for thetwo tops. Total price for the two completed shirts is only $14.50!
I bought 4 appliques and only used two. I will save the other two for another set of shirts later. They would be great for big sister and little sister gifts!

|This is the Way to Watch!|
I was originally thinking of watching Americal Idol, but I think this is a good excuse to tune into Survivor:Redemption Island. I have secretly been wanting to watch it, but didn`t want to add another show to my very short list of shows to watch. Once I start watching, I can`t stop! I believe it is on Wednesday nights and started a couple of weeks ago. Boston Rob is back and the last time I watched Survivor, he and Amber were on it! That was a LONG time ago. I can`t wait to get back into the loop and watch Survivor on Wednesday night. It should be interesting. If not, there is always YouTube!

On days when I am pressed for time in the morning, having this bread makes it so easy to make a fast breakfast for my little bread monster. I just pop a few slices in the toaster, spread it with almond butter and top it off with thin slices of banana. She gets a glass of milk and the 4 food groups are covered!
