My Son is Aspiring to Great Heights Musically

Being in the middle school concert band is truly a learning experience for my son. Not only is he learning how to play an instrument, the trumpet, all the students are being taught how to put together an astounding performance using professional-grade equipment too. I'm not sure, but maybe a mixer like the numark 2 channel mixer is one of them.

I haven’t a clue as to what he’s tried to explain to me about all those equipment. All I know is that he’s so excited and that is good because it will keep him interested in his musical endeavors. And who knows? This may lead him to a great career in the world of music.

Getting My Hubs His Challenger Dream Car Will Be a Challenge

When it comes to toys for the big boys, there is no boring conversations with my husband, brothers and nephews about it. It gets them excited and they are contagious so it never fails to excite me too.

I took a photo of hubby’s dream car – a Dodge Challenger – in a parking lot here and shared it with my brothers on Facebook. The conversation started with just the car, then it escalated to racing cars and the different accessories including the Pegasus has data loggers, etc. and then it got more exciting when each of them shared their dream cars complete with all the awesome accessories that you could think of. I didn’t have a clue that those accessories even existed. As much as they love cars, of course they love watching car racing too.

I may get excited talking to them about cars, but car racing is not up my alley. But what can I say? Boys will be boys, right? And they will always love their toys, no matter what. The only difference is, their toys gets pricey. I just hope and wish they will be able to reach their dreams of owning those awesome cars. Nothing would make me happier than seeing their overjoyed faces.

To Me, Music Always Leads to Nostalgia

I was reading articles online and I saw this palmer speaker simulator. I got nostalgic because I remember seeing my late husband carrying one home years back for him to repair. He worked at an FM Station and it was where I first time saw all those musical instruments that I hadn’t seen or heard before. They had a lot of stimulators at the station and other high-tech musical instruments.

Looking back, we used to hang out at the FM station a lot and just listen to music or chat with his colleagues. I do wonder how they are doing now and if the station is still open. Those were the good days!

A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place

I always love it when the house is clean and neatly organized. Clutter is definitely an eyesore for me. And after seeing those pull out waste containers, our trash bin started becoming an eyesore for me too. Our trash bin is nice looking, just to point that out, but how pretty are those containers? They surely would make the kitchen more neat, not to mention, there will be more space without the trash bins on the way.

Now that is on my wish list and I’ve already told the husband about it. Even the husband himself who could care less whether the kitchen is organized or not agrees with me that those containers are indeed neat. Can’t wait to have them in our kitchen!

With a New Strap, It Would Look Brand New

Father’s Day is just around the corner and I still don’t know which restaurant I am going to take the hubs to to treat him. I know I have a lot to choose from, but I want to take him to a restaurant that offers a unique d├ęcor and perhaps a cuisine that we haven’t tried yet. Well, I still have a month to think about it.

For now, I might as well think of what to give him. I love the retro guitar strap that I’ve seen online. He loves playing his guitar. His guitar that is old yet still looking good. The strap definitely needs some updating though so a new strap would be the best one to give him for Father’s Day. He would be delighted without a doubt. I am excited for him.
