This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.
Straight Talk is a no-nonsense cell phone provider that offers you everything you need without paying those extravagant contract company bills. With two plans to choose from, The All You Need Plan for $30 per month and the Unlimited Plan for $45, they have you covered whether you use your phone moderately or a lot. My grandma has the All You Need Plan which has 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30MB's of we data per month. This plan is perfect for her and she can talk to my aunts and family and it's always enough. Me and the sisters have the Unlimited Plan of course because we talk a lot and send a lot of texts. With unlimited long distance and texts I can call a friend all day or text her. We also have the latest cell phones, with touch screen, blue tooth, music and the ever important camera!
I guess it's true that mom knows best, since she switched us over don't stress the monthly cell phone bills anymore. It's also so convenient that Straight Talk is a no contract cell phone company so if any of us ever choosed to drop the plan we can, and there is never going to be a cancelation fee. We have cut our cell phone bill in half and get more for our money, maybe it's time for you too look into Straight Talk for yourself.

Create a distraction. When changing my nephews diaper, I find it makes things easier if I have a toy for the baby to focus on. Sometimes if I'm lucky and have another sister in the house I just have them sit there and coo at him while I take care of getting him out of his soiled diaper.
Have a pacifier on hand. If the distraction method does not work then you can always try a pacifier. I know that when ever I hear a baby screaming at the top of their lungs it tends to stress me to the point where I cannot put any diaper on correctly. A pacifier will quite the baby down. If your one of those unfortunate souls that have a baby that hates their pacifier, the pacifier trick should still work, for a few seconds at least. Remember your trying to get these diapers on quickly, and it tends to take babies a few seconds to realize what they have is a pacifier and not an actual bottle.
Have a changing area already setup. If you yourself have a baby, then this will most likely be your changing table, but if your like me and the baby is normally just a visitor then set one up before the baby arrives. I know my nephew typically shows up with a soiled diaper since the car seems to be his favorite restroom. All you really need is a blanket, some wipes, a few diapers, and your trusty distraction toy or their pacifier.
The last tip I have is to always make sure the diapers I am using are the new Huggies Little Movers Slip On Diapers. Made specifically for changing all your squirmy babies. All you have to do is slip it right on and the diaper has stop guards around the legs and waist to avoid leakage. The diaper does also have tabs, for those super soiled diapers that some babies can make.

Today I want to introduce you to Zacapa premium rum, one of the world's best tasting rums. The story behind this premium dark rum and how it is aged 2,300 meters above sea level to create a unique complexity of flavor that is perfection and is as mesmerizing as looking at a bottle of Zacapa.
From 19th century railroad to 21st century rum
In eastern Guatemala, 229m above sea level, lies the town of Zacapa.
Founded in 1876 as a bustling railroad stop, the resident population was soon joined by travellers from around the world, leaving a legacy that can still be seen today in local surnames.
In 1976, the town reached its centenary. To celebrate this historic event, Guatemala’s premier rum-producing company decided to create something special.
Coolly aged to perfection
In the highlands of Quetzaltenango, 2300m above sea level, lies The House Above the Clouds. Here in the mountains, the cool temperature slows the ageing process, while the thinner air and lower atmospheric pressure helps intensify the infusion of flavours from the barrels. Only in this precise spot can Zacapa’s exceptionally deep aroma, full colour and rich palate emerge to reach perfection.
