Trans-Siberian Orchestra Concert

I got my hubby concert tickets for Christmas, he’s always wanted to see TSO. We get comfy in our seats and then the show begins. OMG!!! Can I just say I LOVED every minute of it!!! The light show was excellent. The music was beyond fantastic, guitars being played by long haired gentlemen that made my insides dance, the drums thundered through the stadium.  The beautiful lady Asha that played the fiddle freakin rocked it!! She handbanged and had her hair flying threw the air just like the guys. The other ladies that were back up singers/dancers, yea gorgeous bodies and voices that were angelic yet totally rocker! There was a point that cracked me up, there was a “piano face off” they have 2 people that play piano and they put on a great show. I wish I would have recorded it. Chloe Lawery sang so beautifully it brought tears to my eyes, I felt it threw out my whole body. She got many hoots, hollers, and whistles. The other rocker chick I forgot her name and what a shame because her voice was awesome! She also was head bangin with her blonde hair swayin in the wind. Oh man I am going to go next year and this time I will take my son. If you haven’t seen them in concert GO! Put it on your bucket list, you won’t be disappointed I promise!!!

Pitbulls and Parolees

While I am doing my laundry I have been watching the show Pitbulls and Parolees. I think I have been in tears 5 different times, I swear I am not a wuss! I have a soft heart when it comes to animals and just don’t understand why someone would ever just leave a dog, not feed it, let it be sick. I couldn’t do it to a person much less an animal. Heck when I was 16 years old and I accidentally hit a squirrel, I put that thing in a box and took it to a vet. I also don’t get when someone gets a dog and just gives it to the humane society when they move or have a baby. Unless of course the dog is aggressive towards the baby. Cats and Dogs get attached, they love their owners. Wish I could help any animal in need just like I wish I could help any child that is hurting.

However, I can’t just sit back and do nothing. So I rejoined ASPCA and will do whatever I can for Kindred Kitties and the Humane Society around my home. Then there is another rescue that is near and dear to my heart. German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue in Wisconsin, I wish I lived closer to them I would volunteer as often as I could. Guess my money donation will do instead LOL http://www.wgspr.com/.

I told my hubby I think we should go on vacation to New Orleans and go to Villalobos. Yea I’m a nut.

Time flies….

I see I have been terrible with being on here. I have to say it’s all schools fault!! I have until January 7th till my new classes start. I am very excited with one of my classes because it’s the principle of health and wellness. Totally up my alley.

So I just finished Kristen Ashley’s Heaven and Hell, as usual I was able to connect very well with the characters. There was an absolute yummy alpha male and some good lessons in the story. There is a part where Kia is in Italy and a friend Celeste tells her “A man must prove he deserves the honor of you sharing those secrets, a woman should never make the mistake of sharing any of her secrets with a man who does not prove he deserves to have them.” Then through more conversation Celeste adds” Do not accept another man in your life who does not rise to that challenge and do it gallantly”.

I wish I had a Celeste in my life!

Then Kia finds out that Sam is paying for her to have protection, Kia of course wants to help out and offers to pay for it. Wrong thing to say to Sam though, being he is the macho alpha male :). Sam proceeds to tell her “Don’t cross this line. I protect myself. I protect my home. I protect my family. And I protect my woman. I do it how I need to do it. No discussion. Are you with me?” Sigh……is there such thing out there in the world?

In Kia thinking about Sam and him holding back his feelings and all that good stuff she was getting upset with Sam, she mentions this in her head. To start falling, you had to trust the person you were falling for to catch you. Another light bulb moment for me, so I highlight it in my kindle so I can write that down in my book of quotes and inspirations.

You got one life, never use it just to breathe

I had one life and I lived it for seven years doing nothing but focusing on each day, each breath, not living my dreams, not seeking excitement, not pursuing happiness, not searching for my slice of heaven.  When I read this I had to add it to the book too.

When you earn the secrets of someone worth knowing that deeply, you will feel rewarded when he eventually offers you these treasures. So my darling, patience. You will earn them, I have no fear. He will give them to you and when he does, they will feel like the gift they are. That is Celeste talking to Kia about Sam again. Love me some Celeste!

The last thing that I highlighted; Life’s too short to live with demons and life’s too short to miss one second bein’ with the ones you love.

I went to Barnes and Nobles today and bought two cookbooks, both Italian one is by Lidia Bastianich and the other is by Teresa Giudice. I am trying to try new recipes and also add in as much veggies as I can.

OH and FINALLY after 2 years I have a Nutribullet, next on my list to get is a juicer. Can’t be too healthy :).

I’ll try really hard not to be so terrible coming on here. Maybe I’ll tell you all about my health and wellness class and teach you a lil something:).
