Dodge Challenger R/T

Dealing with problems from one thing after another is giving me anxiety. Just the other day, when I was driving to pick up my son at school, I noticed a weird sound inside the car so I pulled over to check what’s going on. Of course, my heart was beating so fast thinking what could be the problem as I turned down the air button and the noise was still there. When I got out the car the window behind the drivers side was down and when I tried to rolled it up it didn’t work. Another car repair and it is quite expensive to fix car windows which we have no allotted budget for this month. 

Its just frustrating when something like this occurs. But anyhow, my car has to be fixed tomorrow so I will be driving my husband’s Dodge Challenger R/T. I drove the car tonight for the first time since we got it to get my boys haircut. I thought I did pretty well even though it was nighttime as I complained I hate driving at night even with my BMW X-5. The Challenger was smooth, a little higher, compared to our old car, Mustang GT, California Special. 

Dodge Challenger

The thought of driving this car was a little nerve racking for me, the buttons when switching gears are different, it has touch screen monitor for satellite radio which I have no intension of using while I’m driving. Though I am looking forward to drive again this car tomorrow when I pick up my son at school then take him out to McDonald’s or Chick-Fil-A which ever he feels like it. 

Beef Kabobs

Anyway, tonight I made Beef Kabobs, and it tasted really good when it was done. Though while the Kabobs were cooking it was smoky inside the house so I had to opened the vent fan and the windows to get the smoke out. Oh my, if I’m the only one in our house cooking this type of food I would probably freaked out when it started smoking. Thank goodness! My hubby was around so I wasn’t worried the alarm will go off.

Not Easy To Say The Least

These past couple of weeks has not been very easy for me to say the least. As I recalled the time period, I was at Wal-Mart to use the bathroom without realizing I went to the men’s restroom. I just noticed it when I was done and saw the sign outside the restroom. Though when I was inside the bathroom washing my hands I noticed the person beside me looked like a guy, with long hair and a beanie on his head as I thought. I don’t know what he’s thinking either seeing me on the same bathroom as I was mortified. My heart was beating so quickly after the mishap that I went through. 

Then another grocery shopping trip to Wal-Mart I forgot my husband’s milk but never bothered to go back to the store to get it. Another trip to Wal-Mart to get our groceries I forgot my husband’s cold medicine, and my sleeping pills. This time I went back to the store to get it back as it is quite a bit of money that I paid for them. Luckily, the cashier was still the same person during my checkout and handed to me what I had forgotten earlier. On my next grocery shopping trip to Wal-Mart I thought it was very successful as I had used price matched using my newfound favorite app, Flipp. Until I noticed on the receipt of four toilet papers instead of two. 

Of course, I went back to the store next day and gave me my money back without asking too many questions. For this week’s trip from Wal-Mart when I was driving on my way home, the  Service Engine Soon warning light; showed up in my dashboard. What the heck? Every time I go to the store there’s always a problem from one thing to another. Maybe for our next grocery shopping trip I will tell my husband to do the shopping and see what problems occurs on his trip.

Indycar Tickets

I am so looking forward to watch Indycar race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday. My sister-in-law, Connie is going with us to watch the race so this is going to be a fun-filled trip and watching the race. Indycar race is different than NASCAR racing but with Indycar tickets much affordable as family pack is hard to get by. Plus, hotdog and drinks included what could you asked for besides the long trip down to Texas. But with my boys on summer break this is our family trip for the summer. Most of all try different foods while we are in Texas and see some cowboys just kidding.

Parking Pass

Last year, we also had our trip down there just to watched Indycar race and I must say it was a different fun-filled scary experience on the speed limit of 75 mph. Also the weather is perfect which makes our travel safer. 


Melda Software

So you think you have everything to make wonderful music and you are probably right. You have your drums, guitar, keyboard or voice, amps and effect pedals.  You are though missing something key a great signal processing software. One like the incredible and effective melda software. Improve your equalizer mix, put your custom sound together and make your music perfect.

Why Not Indulged on Desserts?

While everybody is posting on their Mother’s Day gift on social media I don’t have any except going to a NASCAR Sprint Cup race with my family and my sister‘s-in-law. Though I am still thinking on the amount that we spent eating on Mother’s Day at the Terrace Buffet at Argosy Casino in Kansas City. Food wise, there was nothing special that could jack up the price like seafood; crab legs or shrimp except it was Mother’s Day. Why not indulged on desserts?


Cheesecake

German Chocolate Cake



Flan

Just a special day for moms that’s why restaurants always take advantage of the opportunity to make more money from customers. With 2 adults and 1 child costs us around $80 not including the tip this amount could get us a week of groceries. Anyway, it was a fun day watching the NASCAR Sprint Cup racing with my family and my sister’s-in-law. The weather was perfect aside from my favorite drivers not winning the race. 


NASCAR Sprint Cup Tickets

Though I would loved to see some wrecks just like in Talladega, that’s what makes the races more exciting to watch. When the race was over, finding where we parked our car was smooth sailing to say the least and so was getting out of traffic. When it comes to Indy Car race we pay for parking and it is way too closer to the track at Texas Motor Speedway which we are going to next month. My husband already bought our tickets without asking my opinion but with drinks and hot dogs included on family pack was hard to pass up. 

Besides, he always says; we need to do something for the summer even if it takes 6 hours on the road driving. Just a few months ago, we went to Tulsa, Oklahoma when my husband watched his favorite band, Iron Maiden in concert while Charles and me stayed at the hotel. When it comes to my husband he’s a go-getter even though I always say no most of the time.


Woodwind Instruments

So you want to play a woodwind instruments that uses a reed. You could go saxophone or clarinet or you could go in your own direction towards the, woodwind brasswind oboe. Why be like everyone else, play a unique instrument that is totally different and unlike any other woodwind. Oboe's have a unique sound and are always in demand in concert and orchestra bands and ensembles.

Charles' Pug Chase

I am very anxious for tomorrow as my Crown Vintage Lasso Western Bootie from DSW will be in the mail. This would be my 4th pair of Crown Vintage brand shoes and I would say I love their shoes. But most of all clearance finds and reward points are such a great combination to buy shoes online. Aside from DSW, I am also loving my Krispy Kreme app rewards points. I have two dozens free glazed doughnuts just by filling out surveys on the receipt. Ibotta and Checkout 51 gives you cash back on some grocery items featured on their apps. Once the cash back are all add up I can buy some more pairs of shoes. 


Chase

Anyway, I mentioned from my previous post that my son, Charles is getting a dog. Yes he got one, a Pug and his named is Chase. The next few days Chase will be 3 months old and I asked my husband are you going to celebrate and buy him a cake? He said; no which I thought crazy doing birthdays for dogs.

Guitar Cover

So you got a great new guitar or maybe just your old trusty guitar. You have learned how to play it and shred like a true axe god. Now you need to do something else. You need to protect that guitar with a great cover like the yamaha ypp 200. Make sure t always keep your guitar sage from wear and tear and keep it free of dust. This great dust cover also has plenty of room for pedals or other accessories.

Cindy Medium Dome Satchel

I was so ecstatic when my Michael Kors, Cindy medium dome satchel handbag finally arrived yesterday. It looks gorgeous! The color and the material are much better than I had expected. Perhaps, Michael Kors, is a well-known brand and designer and this bag is top quality. While I splurged myself, I also bought Crown Vintage Robbie bootie from DSW, it was on clearance plus, I wanted to use my rewards points worth $15 and most of all free shipping. Who doesn’t love free shipping and would it be great if all the items we bought are tax free also?

Crown Vintage Robbie Bootie
Even when its free shipping sometimes seeing the amount on tax makes me a little worried and remind myself, hmmm I really don’t need it so I end up cancelling my order. To me the best time to shop for clothing and shoes are after the seasons winter and summer. Prices are marked down up to 75% off but when I like something I want to buy it when I feel like it not just waiting for a sale.

I Am Looking Forward This Year Has To Offer

What a disappointing couple of weeks we had to end our New Year. As you all know, if you have been reading my blogs, I blogged about my son getting a Pug for Christmas as one of his Christmas presents. Well, my husband found a Pug online somewhere in Baltimore, Maryland, paid the person through Moneygram, then the delivery date was December 27, 2015. When the delivery date arrived the person was asking more money for the crate fee and pet insurance. 

While checking the website where supposed we are getting the puppy from had a warning about scammers making money using their website. My husband is smart enough to realize he got scammed online and the money was already gone before the Pug arrived supposedly. Of course, I was very sad, annoyed and cried the morning I found out there was something wrong with the Pug. We could have saved the money or buy a Michael Kors handbag, watch, or shoes from DSW I wanted though my husband was very persistent in getting the Pug for Charles. 

Now, he still wants to get a Pug for Charles, but this time I will be very firm not to get one. Even though there are newly born Pugs closer to where we live I don’t want any. Having a pet in the house is just like having another child around. Then when we are out of town the Pug can’t stay with us then we have to pay for boarding, wow what a waste of money I think. Though there are plenty of things to look forward to this year. Tomorrow, my son, Charles is receiving an Academic Award in an assembly at school. 

It was supposed to be a surprise for him but he opened the letter from his teacher that was addressed to us. Well, he was curious to find out what was the letter for, he thought he might in trouble so he opened it, but we already talked about it not opening letters when it is not addressed for him. Also, I will be celebrating my 36th birthday next week, I already know where I wanted to eat which is Abuelos, one of my favorite restaurants. Most of all, I am looking forward this year has to offer for me and my family. 

Also, it is more than a year now since I got my driver license. My biggest fear of being the first car on the stop light which I dreaded the most now I never thought I would enjoyed the most racing the next car beside me. Then the trips that we are going whether to watch NASCAR races or even driving to Chicago, Illinois, to renew my passport. Yup! I am planning to renew my passport so we could visit to the Philippines, and Charles is looking forward to see the beach and pick up seashells. Hopefully by then Charles will forget to ask his most famous question; are we there yet? Even though we only left the garage, haha. It’s a long flight and he gets bored easily so this can be a problem as well.


Fender Locking Tuners

So you got your dream guitar, especially something like a Stratocaster or Telecaster. Now, you need to make sure to pimp it out with the best equipment. One of the key components to think about is a great set of locking tuners. Of course, with a Fender guitar you will surely want the awesome fender locking tuners. Only the best for your guitar, right?
