I’ve been a lot of places in my life, but I’ve never spent much time in Texas.  A few days here and there, but nothing substantial.  One of the things  I’ve always wanted to do is have a San Antonio vacation.  

I have always like to travel.  I’m sure that a big reason is because we went a lot of places when I was a kid.  My mom was a big proponent of experiencing the area like the locals.  We’d go off the beaten path and really see the area.  

If I were planning a  San Antonio vacation this year, the first place I would check out is the SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience program.   SAVE has all fantastic discounts on all kinds of great attractions, as well as great deals on lodging at every price point.  Here’s how I’d save money on my trip:

I’ve always been a sucker for a cute rug.  I blame it on my mom.  Or maybe it was just the late 1980s and early 1990s, when it seemed like everyone had rugs all over their house.   Either way, I love a cute rug. 

Jellybean rugs definitely fit that bill.  They have literally hundreds of different designs, so you know that they have something for everyone.  Their designs range from the super cute kittens and puppies to abstract designs.  Personally, I was a big fan of the kitschier designs.  I mean, who would imagine that, right?  icon wink Kitschy Cool Jellybean Rugs  Plus, these rugs are good for indoor or outdoor use and they’re machine washable.

People always ask about my name origins.  Is it a family name?  Are you named after someone?  Is it short for something?  Where’s it from?

Now, I will admit – Greta is a pretty uncommon name.  Not terribly uncommon, but definitely not something you hear every day.    Most people equate it with either Greta Garbo or more recently Greta Van Sustern. 

To answer the questions:

I recently – like in the past coupe of years – found out that Greta is a less common nickname for Margaret, with Swedish and Germanic origins.  Who knew?  Pretty fitting, as I’m Swedish on one side and German on the other.  So, as you can probably guess, in my case it’s not short for Margaret!  In fact, Greta isn’t short for anything in my case.

Quick Guide to Postpaid Carrier Selection

With the sophistication of smart phone increasing more rapidly than the world's overall economic status, it is expected that the prices of high-end smart phones will also slowly, but surely rise. This makes owning the top end smart phone less affordable to more and more people. This is, as far as the retail price is concerned, of course. Because of the price hike in terms of surface market value, the primary mode of having a smart phone for many people became heavily dependent on postpaid plans. And with little wonder, first, postpaid plans often give free smart phones or heavily subsidize these gadgets. And second, postpaid plans provide seamless talk time and data services, unto which smart phones are heavily dependent on.

All of these are not without expense, however. Postpaid services can be somewhat expensive. There are a few ways this can be remedied however, and that is finding the carrier that has the perfect plans for you. And to give you an idea of what each carrier can offer, here are some tips:

Verizon Wireless

Verizon wireless is for those who are after excellent services and are prepared to pay for it. Verizon Wireless has the best data speed, great customer service, top of the line phones, and cutting edge technology.

AT&T

AT&T is for those who are looking for great coverage and latest cell phones. AT&T consistently acquires the latest smart phones weeks or months ahead of the competition. AT&T also rewards its customers by allowing cell phone upgrades for as soon as 10 months. In terms of affordability, it is on par with Verizon. Sprint Sprint is one of the more affordable options with its truly unlimited data plans. Sprint also delivers fast and consistent internet speed throttle free even when subscribed to unlimited data.

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is a versatile choice. It can be as affordable as Sprint with unlimited data (but limited high speed data) or on par with Verizon with up to 5 GB of high speed data. The latter choice is quite expensive, however and it would be a good choice to use the proper T-Mobile promotion code, in this case.

Summer is the time of vacations.  It seems like when I was a kid, we would take one long 2-3 week vacation, then a few others that were long weekends.  In recent years, sticking around close to home has gained in popularity.  They’ve even garnered a catchy name – Staycations!

There are lots of fantastic staycation ideas that don’t necessarily mean being trapped in your four walls or
camping out in your backyard.  Although, you could, and it would be awesome!

Here are a few staycation ideas that are things I’ve always enjoyed:

Visit a Nature Center.  Most towns of any size have them.
