This weekend my hubby and I went to Nashville along with my brother inlaws. I married into a family of musicians so whenever we travel it tends to be surrounded by music. This trip was no exception.
We got to Printers Alley for Open Mic Night a bit early and I had my camera so we had an impromptu photo shoot. Arent they handsome?
Hope you enjoy the pics :)

Happy Weekend....

While enjoying your family and friends remember the people who made this extended weekend possible! Happy Memorial Day Weekend :)

Good day all! I dont have much to say today. I think its probably because I had one of my wisdom teeth pulled yesterday so Im one tooth dumber :)
Today was a much better day though. Why you may ask? I think its because its a sunshiny day outside and I got a new lens for my camera....happy days for me :)

Chinese Food "Soup Nazi"

The Best Chinese Food :)
Yeah Im not too sure what the old unplugged fax machines are for
While waiting for your food you can browse through the
candy and porcelain figurines that are for sale
I couldnt take the pics fast enough for the kids! They started eating
as soon as I pulled it out of the bag :)
Why I cant use my kitchen
So this post is pretty random but I thought I would share anyway. So as we said before there was a really bad storm in our area recently. It really threw everything out of wack for me. I can honestly say that since April 27th I have not used my stove AT ALL. Yup, we have been eating out or eating PB&J for nearly 2 weeks now. I just cant seem to get my head back in the game. I tried yesterday but The Hubby decided to start laying new floors in the kitchen so its off limits. Anywho I have been revisiting some restaurants that I used to frequent several years ago.
My son LOVES tofu so we decided to have chinese food for our Mothers Day Dinner. In our area, there are several chinese restaurants but none can compare to Golden Star. The food is super fresh and the service is, well for lack of a better descriptive word "Soup Nazi-ish". The lady that takes the orders literally screams at the customers as soon as they walk in, "Wa U Wan!"
No time for looking over the menu. This lady is on a mission. She doesnt discriminate when it comes to who she yells at. Black, white, old, young, whatever. Hurry up and order! I really wish I could have taken a picture of her but I was afraid that she would banish me forever and I cant live with that!
I will take the abuse as long as shes feeding me!


Sad Cinco de Mayo???

So, since College Cinco de Mayo has been my favorite holiday, it is honestly up there with Thanksgiving. Well, this year stated out like the other... Hubby and I texted all day planning where we were going to go and we made sure eat a very light lunch so that we could chow down that evening. Well, we got dressed for an evening for laughter and virgin drinks and when we got to the restaurant which is normally loud and full of semi- drunk celebrators, we found an empty, cold restaurant full of smiling and eager waiters. It was surreal... So we seat on the patio and order some drinks and queso dip in silence. Finally, I asked our server where all the people where ? She explained that they were expecting a low turn out due to the server weather that we had last week. She explained that when people are broke they don't want to drink and laugh. I guess that makes since to some people but for me its the total opposite.Well, sitting in a completely quiet restaurant the Hubby and I made the best of an extremely weird situation... we were the life of the party. We sit, eat and talked for almost 2 hours!!! Sans Alcohol!!!

(Please note I wore a very lose fitting dress, that means I knew I was coming to put away some authentic Mexican cuisine. #nojudgement)

I believe they slipped some 1800 tequila in our drinks because we had a blast.

The best part of this food shortage situation is that everything was made fresh, all the way down to these chips. I think we killed at least 3 baskets full... they were delicioso!!!

Twisted Fate

-Picture taken the day before the storm-

1970s Floral Dress: Totally Thrifted
Smile on my face and sunshine: Priceless

So, we really want to thank all of you for your emails of concern. We (Keesha and Deon) are doing okay. Like Keesha said, we are finally getting things back to normal. I have to tell you that nothing that you saw on CNN gave this situation any justice but slowly and with much prayer things will get back to normal. Please promise us that you will live life to the fullest... you never know when a some form of "twisted fate" will change your life.

After The Storm...

Hi Everyone. Please excuse our absence. On April 27th, our area was hit by several tornadoes that resulted in a week long power outage and severe property damage. Deon and I have sustained little to no property damage so we are EXTREMELY grateful, however alot of our neighbors did not fare so well. Although we are back in business (ie. power restored) our posting will be sporatic due to our attempts to regain a sense of normalcy.
Thank you all for your concern :)
