Guitars and Fender

I so wanted this Christmas to have a new guitar it is been more than ten years I have not practice and for me I feel like I have to go back to the very beginning of the lesson. I like the fender and guitars that I have seen on the internet I like the color and how this guitar looks. What about you do you have a hobby or a talent that it has never been come out yet? Why not start doing it now and not to wait long years to enhance it, okay?

The Trumpet

     This year my nephew is in first year high school. When he was young he is very active he cannot seat for a seconds he is going to run again. This time he mellowed down but still his energy is into video games and I do not like that. I remember when I was young we play the whole day we only go home when we heard my mother or father whistling that means it is time to go home and eat! Anyway, my nephew joined the school band, for beginners he needs to choose one musical instrument, and to our surprise, he chooses a trumpet, which is very cool. I look at the internet and online I found a beginner trumpet at wwbw, which is now on sale a great find right? Now I know what to buy for my nephews Christmas gift.


I was in this store and looking for dresses. I have this obsession to go to the church wearing dress just like the old days, you know what I mean? I search also in the internet that men do like to look at women who wears dress. I think because women do look good in dress in any size and form, right? So here is what I score two weeks ago a black, wrap around dress and a deep neck line and because I am so petite I had to alter the hem of this dress and for two dresses it cost me $40.00 that is too much right for alteration. So my next plan is to go to Joannes or Michaels to look if they have a crash course for heaming only ^_^

Backyard Playground

Fall is definitely here the declining of weather temperature is the must awaited for some but not so much for me. I love outside activities as long as the temperature is not too warm or hot. If we adults love, the outdoor activities how much more are the kids. They have a lot of energy to burn and so therefore, they need to be outside and play. I saw this playsets at backyardplayground.net online and I am amazed of how beautiful their backyard playsets are. The photo above is my favorite because you can connect it to the deck where of course, the adults like to hangout. What more can be awesome with this, right? So for me this is one of my wish list this holiday season hope my hubby would get this for me.

Hire a DJ

     Last weekend we had a blast celebrating Halloween. A bunch of friends come together and invited more friends to come and celebrate with us. To my surprised when I arrived at the venue, we had a DJ that means there will be a lot of dancing going on here. After dinner games for kids started and after the games, the dance floor is open. For the very first time I like the DJ my friend hired for the party, his music is upbeat and we are all having fun. So this coming Christmas party we are going to hire him again I wonder if he used cdj at musicians friend I saw few months ago because his music are awesome and there is a continuation of every music he played so he is hired for the next event we are going to have.

Jewelry Store

Are you the person who likes your jewelry to be different and is customize to your own liking? I am that too though I like jewelries I saw on display but I like my own to be customize for me and it is hard to find a jewelry store that do that. Hubby and I are going to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary, hubby promised me to buy a new set of wedding ring/engagement ring, and I like it customized so I found jewelry stores salt lake city utah the most appropriate site for me to look at. Fortunately, as what I see on there site the design that I like are there which make me want to see more but for now, I am all set on how to customize my rings. Thanks to a friend who told me to look at this site first before going to another because, right now I like what I see.

I did not realize that we could find eyeglasses that are not so expensive. I remember two years ago hubby and I went to an eyeglass store after we are examine and everything we paid a lot of money for the two glasses what the heck. Now I found eyeglasses.com and guess what they all have the glasses from every members of the family. The kid’s glasses start from $10.00 and how cool is that while the progressive lenses starts from $49.00 twice cool! Anyhow, I told hubby we will not buy anything that is every expensive especially eyeglasses because I found a cool site for this so friends check this out.

Guitar Strings

I remember long time ago my father bought a guitar for my brother. Everybody in the family was happy about it because we all knew that everyone should share that guitar. As I have predicted some of the friends of my brother used it so the string goes worn out fast. I found out then that there are two kinds of string a nylon and a nickel. I like the nylon but the nickel has better tune to it. The other day I took the guitar of my hubby out from the case and I found out there is one string lacking so I go to check on rotosound guitar strings at guitar center.

Knee Walker

     Have you heard this knee walker because it is my first to hear this. Of course, I saw those wheelchairs that go around but not knee walker. What I can say to this product is that it is the most awesome thing ever invented. I cannot fathom the idea when a person cannot move around just because his or her other legs or foot is injured. Because of knee walker, you are able to walk around and enjoy life. You can visit the site here http://www.rentakneewalker.com and you will be amaze of what they can offer to you who need this support.


What I like in summer is that you have the chance to reap what you sow. Well that means if you planted something you got to harvest the produce soon and for me it is reality check for saving. These year our plant are not doing good. I think it is because we do not have a great hot and warm summer. Here are my tomatoes I picked from the garden...

Silver Bar

     Silver bars and gold bars are one commodity that I think if we have chance to buy we should buy it right away. I am telling you guys I bought gold jewelries when I was in the Philippines and when I was single and now I could not believe how the value go up since I bought my jewelry that time. I am always convince that silver bar is the way to go if we like to invest on something it would not go down in value. If you have a chance to invest on something it must be silver bar.

     Have you been to any play or games lately? For us we always get an invitation from hubby’s grand kids that sometimes we would go sometimes we could not make it. Anyway, my first time I watched a game at a school ground I was very impressed of the colorful bleachers our school had installed. They added more bleachers in the school ground and in the gym. It does look good and for me I do not care about the colors or how pretty it looks like what I like is that it has to be strong and can be rely upon. Bleachers should be comfortable and made strong to hold people while cheering their favorite players.

Sign of Time

I am not talking about apocalypse or end of times rather I am talking about the sign that autumn is just around the corner any moment now we are in fall season. The other day I was walking around the yard checking if the frost affected my vegetable and flower garden so far it did not. When I look at the trees I saw these...

Love it!

I have good news friends I found this beautiful stainless steel double oven from Kitchen Aid- kgrs505xss. I find this oven as the best of the entire best oven in the world. I can only imagine myself cooking in this oven. One time I was cooking for ten people for Thanksgiving dinner. I woke up very early and start cooking so when I am done with everything it is an hour ahead of our dinnertime. My problem at that time is how to make the food stays warm and hot but with an old oven, I cannot keep them warm altogether. Therefore, when I saw this oven my eyes pop out because it is indeed beautiful!

Our corn has ears

It rained twice this  week and I am very happy about it. Because every time the rain comes I know the plants are happy. After the rain yesterday I went to the field and check on our corn and yes we had plenty of ears this year. Though the deers started to eat some of it but I think they can't eat it all ^_^ Hubby picked some of the corn and we did eat it for dinner and it is yummy!

Body Pillows

     This morning hubby was complaining to me about his pillow. He has this military neck so they call it, that he needs a soft pillow and that contours his whole body. I bought him a good pillow thinking it would help but did not. His daughter bought him another kind of pillow still did not work out for his needs. I saw this body pillows online and thought of trying this one hoping that hubby would like it.

Ludwig drum set

     There is no day that I do not think of my family most especially my nieces and nephew in the Philippines. I saw them last March this year since I went there for a month and I missed them already. This morning my niece told me that her brother is a member of their school band. I was happy because he is a very active boy and he needs to put that energy to good stuff. I remember when my niece was in high school she asked me one time to enroll her to a music studio. That time I do not like the idea but now I realized kids and teenagers should not focus their time to social networking rather they have to focus their energy, skill and talents to music or other stuff that will enhance what they have. A ludwig jr drum set is the best gift to my nieces and nephew this Christmas I think.

Musician's Friend

A friend of mine who lives in New York invites me to come to her place this summer or fall. I told hubby about it but he has a second thought if he allows me to go to New York by my own. Of course, he won’t allow me but I also told him other option he could come with me in New York. I told my friend the places I like to visit and one thing is to watch an orchestra play. I so love to watch orchestra play the music soothe my soul. The other day an affordable mighty bright at musician's friend house I saw. It was mighty bright for anybody conducting the orchestra could use it well and indeed they do need it.
