Two Things.

These are 2 things that calms me down and help me destress.
I do not need to go elsewhere just to unwind.

 I have everything I need at home especially after some quiet downtime with a good book a good old cup of tea. Happy Thursday!


I will have my own tea party yay!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and
have a great week ahead y'all!

Dear God.

Life can't get any better than this!
Thank you Lord for all the Blessings.
Life is indeed good!

Cut Costs and Improve the Look of Your Home

Since I have another batch of close friends planning on visiting us this Spring/Summer, hubby and I are thinking of doing some minor improvements in our townhome. So I checked my 2 most favorite home improvement sites and I saw these photos. Sigh! What beauties aren't they?

But I am not here to talk about impossible dreams. I am here to share with you that once again DS is enrolling on a music class come Summer. Perhaps, this exceptional mackie hd 1531 is something he will be able to try. I will keep you posted!

Year of the Wooden Horse

I follow some Feng shui practices and traditions.
I guess that's my 1/4 Chinese blood ruling over my beliefs hee hee.

This year, I'm keeping it low in terms of these traditions, even my Amulets to-buy-list have been lessened, as this portable stage at musicians friend is something I have been saving up for.

Nevertheless, I am keeping a positive mindset this year.
Here's to wealth, prosperity and peace amongst all of us.
Have a good Chinese New year y'all!

Saturday 9: I Will Always Love You

1) The Bodyguard is the best-selling movie soundtrack ever and this is the song most often associated with Whitney Houston and this evh striped series. Is it on your iPod/mp3 player? Nope, I'm over it.

2) In the movie, Rachel (Whitney) sings "I Will Always Love You" after she realizes she can never see Frank (Kevin Costner) again. What song reminds you of a past love? What might have been by Lou Pardini hahahaha!

3) Despite the movie's and the song's overwhelming popularity, Whitney Houston was awarded a Razzie Award as the worst actress of 1992. What's the most recent criticism you received? I eat a lot lol!

4) On the bright side, share the last compliment you received? I don't get fat that fast.

5) In the 1980s, when Whitney first burst onto the scene, a trendy woman wore big hair, big bows and big shoulder pads. Can you think of anything you wore that was fashionable at the time, but looking back, makes you cringe? (An embarrassing photo to accompany your answer would be nice!) A lot!

6) When this song was popular, cell phones were uncommon and Facebook was unheard of. Which has had a bigger impact on your life -- smart phones or social networking? I guess smart phones.

7) Whitney's marriage to Bobby Brown left many people shaking their heads. Whitney and Bobby's daughter recently married the young man who was raised as her brother. Have you ever been in a relationship your friends/family didn't approve of? Nope.

8) Whitney Houston's grave marker reads, "I Will Always Love You," so obviously her family is very proud of the success of this recording. How would you like to be remembered? I gave out my best in all aspects of my life.

9) Whitney was born in Newark, the largest city in New Jersey. It's a major air, rail and shipping hub, and it's in the Eastern Time zone. Have you ever been to Newark ... or any town in New Jersey? yes.
