Akesha & Buddy, Reunited at Last

When we flew from Sacramento to Texas last Saturday, Buddy didn't come with us. We planned it that way because there's no direct flight from Sacramento to San Antonio. Whereas if he take a cargo plane he will fly directly. So my SIL dropped him off at the Airport last Monday. And we fetched him at 10:30pm. His plane was delayed so we waited for an hour at the airport.
All of us were too excited to see Buddy... especially Akesha. She's been bugging us about Buddy since we arrived here. She kept telling us how she misses Buddy.
Akesha and Buddy, reunited at last!
He was in his crate for a few wonder why he looks!

Nashville Shores For The Summer

Guest post from: Winston Stewart

Summertime means we load the car and head to Nashville Shores, the water hot-spot in Nashville! Me and my four closest friends have made it a summer tradition to spend as many days as we can on the beautiful and cooling waters of Percy Priest Dam.
We like going to Nashville Shores because there is always something fun going on, from special apperances to fun activities at the park.There are swimming pools along with a kiidie pool, water slides, and many other water fun activities. It is kid-friendly too, so it is great to bring your brother and sister with you. We can pack a picnic(which we do) and enjoy on the nearby green grass.One year we plan to rent a boat and take it down Percy Priest. So far none of us have actually gotten the courage to do it!
Like every year before we head off to Nashville Shores, my friends made sandwiches while I grabbed drinks and packed the beach towels and sunscreen. Once we were all done and everything was in the car, I set the intrusion alarmsystem and began our journey for the best summer fun in Nashville ever!

Goodbye California, Hello Texas

I'm back! Thank God... I finally got my internet connection! The cable guy just finished installing it. And I am hoping I can blog hop tonight. So anyhow, here's a quick update
Last Friday was the loading day of our junks. And the moving truck arrived here in Texas this morning. It took almost 5 hours to unload our stuff. I almost passed out doing the!

Last Saturday was our last day in California. Akesha and hubby took a nap while waiting for our delayed plane going to Phoenix. We arrived like almost 12am here in Texas.
This is our new place. We are currently renting an apartment right now. We like the place. This place has excellent amenities like community pool, gym, park, dog park, courtyard and more.
Here's our empty nest. We live on the bottom floor which is very nice because we have a dog. Speaking of dog, I gotta go! I need to get Akesha ready because we are going to pick up Buddy at the airport. 

Thanks for coming by folks! I hope to catch up tonight. Greetings all the way from Texas! Yeha cowboy!!!....:)

Packing Day!

What an exhausting day! It was certainly a long day for me and hubby...except! The movers did a fantastic job packing our belongings. Well I made their work a little easier by sorting and organizing our stuff a few days before. And they're pretty happy about it! All they need to do tomorrow is to load all our junks in the truck, and it's good to go!
The movers called her the "Little Supervisor". She's checking out the garage to see if everything is in order.
Apparently, there's no room for the 3 of us anymore. So right now we are staying in a hotel for 2 nights.
Thanks for coming by folks. Sorry if I can't pay you a visit right now. I'll make it up to you once we get settled in Texas.

Family Television Night

Guest post of the week by Ferdinand Livingston

Our family schedules our time around our family television night. We usually watch Deadliest Catch when on our family television night because we all love the suspense and excitement that seems to loom around that show.

Deadliest Catch is about these fisherman that are out to see fishing and catching crabs. It documents their lives, the risks they take for their jobs, what they do all day on a ship, and many other aspects of a fisherman's life. My husband used to actually work in that line of work so he especially enjoys watching that show. Ever since we got our tv figured out with DirectTV customer service, we started assembling for family television night which is turning out be a delight.

My son and daughter really get into the show because of the excitement and riskiness of it all. For some reason, they really like to take turns guessing how full the cages will be when they fish for crabs. It's actually quite funny that they bet on things like that. My husband will usually pick one of the kids up and yell, "CHAMPION!"when either one happens to win.
Family Television Night has really proved to be a blast, and it's really been bringing our family closer together than ever. Sometimes I'll even invite my sister-in-law over and she'll bake cookies for us all to eat while we watch Deadliest Catch! I don't think we'll be discontinuing Family Television Night any time soon.

I'm Still A Seinfeld Fan!

The article written by Adrian Hickman

I have been making the most out of my satellite tv by recording all of the Seinfeld episodes that I possibly can. ever since I was a kid, I have been a huge fan. Even though there are only about a hundred episodes, the show never seems to get old to me. My personal favorite is Kramer, who looks just like my uncle Joe. I used to really like the stand up comedy of Jerry Seinfeld, but not as much as the show itself. I really like George also, since he was originally based off of Larry David. My dad likes Elaine a lot for some reason. I guess he thinks that she is hot or something.
Seinfeld comes on all of the time, which is fine to me. Even though I have most of them recorded already, I have no problem watching them again. I guess you could say that I kind of get lost in the story, since it is way better than reality at times. I wish that I could live in New York and meet crazy people like they do all of the time. I even got to see the Seinfeld reunion not too long ago on HBO. I thought that they might end up ruining the reunion special, but they made it better than I could have ever hoped for.

A New City

Thanks to guest blogger Jacob Martin for the post.

Moving is a daunting task for anyone, especially me. It seems that this last move I made was very nerve racking. I had known that we were moving for about a month, therefore I started making preparations immediately. The first task was to find our new house, this was a bit nerve racking, however after a few searches, we found the perfect one.
Next, before we even started packing, I called and had utilities, water and home security cameras ready to go when we moved in. This was simple and required little time when compared to the rest of the moving adventure. After purchasing boxes, I began to pack our possessions, only to find that I did not purchase enough boxes. Which was taken care of easily enough, but just added to the constant running here and there.
After securing the moving truck, things seemed to be going smoothly enough. Luck was on our side as we drove the 650 miles south to our new home. Thus, then began the nightmare of unpacking and getting settled in. But all in all, moving to this new city was exciting and proved to be a great move for us all.

Ruby Tuesday: Lost Luggage

Some terminal and gate areas seem quite sterile and commercial, others are very warm, airy, and inviting while at Southwest terminal in Sacramento International Airport is different....

Hiding two of the ceiling support columns are old baggage carts which were used to transfer luggage from the terminal to the aircraft. These baggage carts have been distressed to make them look like they are swelled out as if crammed full of passenger's luggage. I found it very whimsical!

Stratosphere Observation Deck

We decided to go all the way to the end of the famous Las Vegas strip which was the Stratosphere Hotel. Stratosphere is located at the northern end of the Strip, away from the main attractions, but a visit here is well worth it.
I would like to thank my mom for sending us the shirts. We love it! Thanks a lot Ma.
To get a great birds eye view of the strip head up to the Stratosphere Tower. We went at night because we wanted to see the strip lit up but it is open during the day. We did have to queue for a while though so be prepared. down!!!

The last time we've been to Stratosphere was when Akesha was a half year old.

From the top of the tower you get great views of the city.

Admission is $15.99 each. Kids 4 and under is FREE.

Meet hubby's Air Force buddies...I call them the "Magic 4 Tech Sergeants"!

EuroMillionaire Island

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of goviral. All opinions are 100% mine.
You should checkout this video to see an inventive way on demonstrating the difference between millionaires and EuroMillionaires. You can see how one lucky guy spent some of his winnings. The video starts out with helicopters invading an island where the people pull out their paint ball guns. If you want to be a EuroMillionaire, you should see about playing the national lottery. This is the lottery in the United Kingdom and has many types of games that you can play to possibly become a EuroMillionaire. You can play Big Money, Pot of Gold and Ludo. You can play instant win games and you can play EuroMillions to become a EuroMillionaire. You can also play Thunderball which is a pretty cool game. Anybody can play this lottery and if you are lucky, you might win. Maybe you will be a millionaire traveling to a remote island to play paintball like the people in the video. There is a lot of things that I would love to do if I won the National Lottery. What would you want to do if you won? So what are you waiting for? If you want to try to win the millions, you should checkout this video and then play the National Lottery.

Buddy's Hair is Back!

I think it was over a month ago since I trimmed Buddy's hair. And look at him now!!! His hair is back to normal. I need to trim his hair again this weekend because I noticed the other day that he's been scratching. So when I checked it, I saw a few fleas roaming around his furry hair. Poor Buddy!

Our Move from Boston to the Midwest

Thanks to guest blogger Susan Reily for the post.
A move is a huge undertaking under any circumstances. When it involves moving from one area of the country to another it can be a nightmare! My husband Sam, our four-year-old son Jim and I recently moved from Boston to the Midwest. It was exhilarating, exhausting and horrifying all at the same time.
First of all the packing was strenuous to say the least. We had inherited my pack rat uncle's gigantic home the year before and still had not sorted all his possessions. Therefore, we had to rent a huge storage area in our new city. Then we had to hire two moving trucks to haul everything to our new home and to the storage unit.
After the packing nightmare we had the usual chore of changing utilities and arranging for other services. I spent a whole week changing our electric, gas, cable, cell phone and internet provider as well as signing up for Colorado Springs home security dals, hiring a lawn company and ordering a subscription to our new city's newspaper.
Luckily finding employment in Ohio was not a problem since we are both in the medical field. Jim and I found jobs in hospitals located about 10 minutes from each other and 20 minutes from our new home. We have embarked on our new adventure and I must say Ohio is a beautiful state.

Congrats & Thanks!

We're Moving to Texas!

You heard it right! We are moving to Texas within this month. And the whole fam are anxious and excited about it. It's hard to say goodbye to Cali. I'm gonna miss our huge! For the past 6 days or so, I've been preoccupied. There are too many things going on: packing, cleaning, packing, cleaning and picking!
Just a few days ago, Akesha and I started picking up those rocks I have in our side yard. I don't want to leave them behind because I invested a lot of money to buy those smooth white rocks. It cost me a fortune (almost)!
I'm not even half way yet. My gosh...picking them by hand takes forever.
Thank you anak for being so helpful. She complained yesterday: "Mama, I'm tired. My back is hurting." waaaa....calling all child protector! Btw, we are moving because hubby got a new job at USAA. It is a Fortune 500 financial services company offering banking, investing, and insurance to people and families that serve, or served, in the United States military.

My stay in Atlantic City

Posting by Alex Marol
The first time I ever went to Atlantic City was last year in December. That isn't the ideal time to go, but we had a great deal at the Marriott Courtyard and we wanted to do something before the year was over having not gone on a real vacation. During our time there (my mother, brother, and I) we went to all the casinos and restaurants that tourists usually hit up, but the real fun began back in our hotel room. We had a beautiful view of the Atlantic City landscape, a 37 inch LG TV with direct TV, a decent amount of take out menus, and a wide variety of movies on demand. The one movie we were all pretty excited about seeing was Law Abiding Citizen with Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler. It was pure entertainment from start to finish. It starts with Gerard B. character watching his family being killed and Jamie F. is the prosecutor who essentially allows the bad guy to get away. This naturally drives Gerard's character insane, but it was a very calm insanity. His revenge was well thought out and executed exactly as he wanted it until the end. Gerard wanted everybody to die. He got too greedy. Which was his undoing. Jamie gave him one last opportunity to escape, but Gerard, thinking his plan was full proof, would not relinquish and it cost him his life. I love that ending. Gerard was still completely in control, but it was his own fate that he held in his hands. Would definitely recommend if you like action and interesting (bloody) death sequences.
