Deals To Be Found

Was considering purchasing some type of musical instrument for my nieces birthday since she is showing signs of actually have some talent that most of our family inherits, on both sides, so maybe she got a double dose. There might be a need for head phones like the sennheiser hd 201 one that I pictured below, for her parents to use while she is learning a instrument like the sax!

Her mother has been urging her to try and learn the saxophone, of all things. I’ll keep my opinion to myself on this subject. I’ve been spending a bit of time online at various websites checking out what it is out there these days and for how much. Berg Larsen seems to keep popping up with saxophones and their various equipment that is needed for such a complicated musical instrument. But like I said I’ll keep my opinion on the choice of musical instruments to myself.

Happy Dance

The musiciansfriend.com guitar parts that I ordered earlier in the month has arrived. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face on her birthday morning when she opens up the box that contains this wonderful gift that she has no idea that I am getting it for her at all. I am keeping this gift hidden down stairs and will wait until all the other presents are all open and done with before going down and getting it to hand directly to her at that moment.

My mother did that to me one year. I really wanted a new clock radio and was so disappointing that there was no more of the presents with my name on it contained this much wanted new piece of technology. My mother proceeded to go in the other room and came back with a wrapped present and gave it to me to open, with everyone’s attention concentrated on me. I’m glad that no one was taping that morning because I know that I must have done the craziest “happy dance” of all times, not something that I would want to be on film for people to watch and laugh at in the future. I mean really it could possibly end up on YouTube, how horrible would that be?

The Big Dream

I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business but really the only thing I’ve ever been good at is dancing. I love moving my body and then it hit me – why don’t I open a dance studio where I teach kids the things I know? I’ve had my own place for about 2 years now and business is just wonderful.

I get to go to work every day knowing that I get to see some of my favorite kids and also get to dance my thoughts away. I have it all decked out with the best flooring and changing rooms and a good security system to protect all the AV equipment at night when I’m not there. I’m loving being a small business owner so far and if I just hang on another year or so I think I’ll be able to hire a couple more trainers as well! I never imagined being this successful and I know my family is almost as proud of me as I am of myself…and I really am!

There are a lot of great sayings concerning dance, but this is a new one that I saw on Facebook that really touched me enough to share it here on my personal blog.

I could be just dreaming

Am I Dreaming

Baby Showers

I remember when I looked up the History of baby showers when I was put in charge of the baby shower games and prizes for a large surprise baby shower. This particular celebration was being held for one of my co workers that worked with me in the HR department, which was a fairly large department so we expected a good amount of people to attend. We invited her family, her best friend as well as her husband (who actually brought his mother along as well) so we ended up with almost 50 people, that is a big baby shower to put on.

Anyway, I spent a good amount of time online looking for all kinds of information and help with the task that I was selected to take care of. Seeing all of the new born baby products that they have these days and how cute all those little tiny things look always gets to me, so soft and fluffy, sweet pastel colors and designs tend to bring out those feelings of wanting to have a baby. I mean really those adorable baby animal hats that are all the rage these days! You have to understand that I am a hat freak to start with so having a baby to adorn their little heads with all the little hats as well, it’s just too wild not to think and dream about.

Then after the baby shower was all done and over with, the mother-to-be was very happy with customized baby blankets that I had special ordered and gave to her and the tons of other stuff that she walked out of there with, I went to the grocery store on my way home. Standing in line behind me was a mother dealing with her bratty and out of control two year old and her newborn that was not happy about being there one bit. So after hearing all of that commotion I can tell you that I snapped out of the very strong and ever growing urge to have another baby – real quick like!

A Good Kid

It looks like I’ll be seeing what I can find online by way of University of Alabama shirts to send to my nephew for his 17th birthday. He is so excited about attending the University of Alabama next year when he is all said and done with graduating high school in a short few months. In order to keep the excitement alive in him I thought that he would appreciate some Alabama apparel for him to sport as this year’s birthday gift.

It will be different around here when he leaves in the Spring, he is the last of boys in family that are still around. The remaining minor children in the family are all female, not that I have a problem with that mind you. It is just strange how things have shifted throughout the years from guys being the majority for so long and how it has gradually turned female.

He is a good kid, gave his mom, my kid sister, a hard time for a few years, but he has managed to pull it together, getting better grades and cut way back on his partying lifestyle that can really ruin a kid. So I’m so glad that he managed to turn it all around and will be heading out for college in less than 5 months.
