Spring Like Weather

December 21, 2015

Only three days until Christmas, did you get all your holiday shopping done for your loved ones? Well, I have not done Christmas shopping because my husband did it yesterday at Toys R US. My husband bought him Lego City, a Pokemon set and Ford Mustang, then I think he is also getting a pug. Charles has been wanting a pug since he saw a video blogger on YouTube about his pug so he also wants one. Getting a pug comes with a responsibility which I don’t think Charles could do though it would be a great buddy for him to have around. Or maybe, the two of them could sleep in his room which I doubt happening anytime soon. Well, it has been a Spring like weather here in Northwest Arkansas, though it is kind of sad we don’t have snow on Christmas day. As long as I recall since I came here to the United States of America, we always have snow on Christmas day. My son, Charles is looking forward to making a snowman and snow angel hopefully January, we can get some snow. 


Barbecue Shrimp Boil, Copelands of New Orleans


Grilled Tilapia with Corn and Mac & Cheese, Copelands of New Orleans

Popcorn Shrimp, Copelands of New Orleans


Shrimp with Veggies, Hunan Manor


Chicken Lomein Noodles


Wonton Soup with Crab Rangoon and Spring Rolls

Anyway, I just wanted to share some of the foods that I took when we ate at Copelands of New Orleans and Hunan Manor. We ate quite a few times  at the restaurants over the past couple of weeks but sometimes I don’t feel like taking pictures specially when I saw people around me not taking snapshot on their foods. One time we were having lunch at Copelands and I was taking pictures but I was really starving then I asked myself why I am taking these photos instead of eating the food?

Merry Christmas

December 09, 2015

I was so ecstatic to get the Christmas cards out from the box when I noticed the word Christmas is missing with letter “h”. Hmmm it still sound Cristmas without h though I would prefer to have it spelled correctly. Returning the card to Hobby Lobby could be an issue, as I bought the cards from last years clearance plus, I don’t have a receipt anymore. I guess getting 70% off on clearance is not worth it after all when I saw the misspelled word. The next time I hunt for bargains I’ll be meticulous but with the eyesight I have I guess that’s what happened. Great excuse right? 





Well, I already bought another box of cards today, 50% off still a great deal for sure. Anyway, the address labels that I ordered online came in the mail today. Oh my goodness! They are lovely and I can’t wait to use them when I send our Christmas cards hopefully this week or so. Well, this week is going to be a busy week. Cookies with Santa is tomorrow, First Grades are going to sing but I have not heard a song from Charles on what they are going to sing. Winter Party is December 18, also their last day of school. 




Since I have nothing to do around the house I volunteered to help prepare the classroom party. I’m sure Charles would love having me around. But most of all I am looking forward to Christmas breaks and Charles opening his presents. Now, he added a pug on his lists and he is not getting any even though we all like them. Having a pet around can be a hassle especially when Doug and I have allergies so we are not getting any, sorry Charles.


I am Rollin with My Roland

Ok so I recently got a new CD recorder and let me tell you I am rollin w/my Roland.  Being able to make your own music and then produce your own CD’s is so exciting.  Whether you are an amateur musician or a budding professional to be able make your own CD’s is so powerful. Of course, Roland is a great company and producer of all kinds of musical equipment.
