When I was much younger, the last thing that I would have dreamed of doing was to go to the ballet. I've never liked dancing that much in general. But then you get married and have little girls and things really change. When my girls were younger, we would take them to the ballet sometimes, especially to see The Nutcracker. But the only ballet that I've ever seen that I actually liked is The Nutcracker.

It's been years since we've gone as a family to go and see it together, but I thought that it might be fun to go as part of mine and my wife's Christmas present to our children. While I was online finding some information about buying tickets, I saw the site and decided to go and get fitted with some hearing aids to make the holidays more enjoyable.

I tracked down the tickets for them and we're going to go and see the play while my girls are in town for the holidays. I hope that they like my surprise for them!

I am not sure how to handle my first child moving out of the house. When he first became a teenager, I thought this would be a happy day. However, now that it is here all I can do is cry. My son has always been precious to me and it is hard to imagine him being out on his own. I guess I should get use to it though. He already has an apartment. It is actually a great apartment and I would have definitely given it my approval, if he had asked. He did everything on his own. He found the apartment, he set up the cable, he went to to set up the electricity and he even set up an alarm service. He is making so many decisions and doing so well. I am proud of the adult he is becoming, but I just hope he will still need his mom. I know every mom probably fears being forgotten, but right now it feels much harder than I would have imagined. My son is independent and moving out and all I can think about is him being a little baby in my arms. I don’t think I will ever forget those moments. He will always be my precious, little baby.

Summer in Texas is one of those things you have a really hard time explaining to other people if they haven’t experienced it, you know what I mean? People who live up north think they know what 100 degrees feels like but they don’t really until they’ve also experienced it with 100% humidity as well. Since I grew up here I knew what weather to expect this summer but it was still a shock when that first really hot day hit.

I went to since my sister told me about it and it’s really helped with those astronomical heating and air bills I get here. I love this time of year, though, because I get to go hang out with my friends at the river and play at all the rooftop bars which are things I look forward to all year when the weather is cold! I love being a Texan and I wouldn’t have it any other way but I’ll be really glad when another cold front comes through, that’s for sure!

Which coffee chain do my fellow readers think are the best? Two of my friends swear it's Starbuck's one swears it's Caribou Coffee, another is claiming it's Seattle's Best. I guess everyone has there own opinion, but I'm stumped. I really don't want to stay home today and finish this English report, but I don't want to be drinking crappy coffee in an overcrowded cafe either. Starbuck's tends to be the most popular in the area, so it will most definitely be crowded, I guess I'll try and avoid that place, at least for today.

Well I guess I'll try Caribou Coffee since my friend swears they have the extra creamy texture in there coffee. Maybe it's just what I need to get over the “writer's block”, that's preventing my report from getting finished.

Then again, maybe I can find a local coffee house, that's not part of a big franchise. I find those places are usually the ones with exceptional coffee blends. I'll figure this out soon, but for now I have to sign off and set my home security alarm (Home security system), and then decide for myself where the best place is to get coffee in this town.

The show Cupcake Wars is an ultimate favorite TV treat of mine to watch. The different teams they have on the show always have their own unique personalities that make the show interesting and fun to watch. I also love the different kind of cupcakes you see made and I like to try and experiment and recreate the cupcakes I see on the show.
The challenges they have them go through is amazing to see such skill and expertise go into making cupcakes. The final challenge being to make 1,000 cupcakes in a short amount of time, while catering to their specific theme and making a display that will help win the judges over. This is more challenging than some people think and it makes the show a really fun one to watch.
This is by far my favorite show to watch on the Food Network on satellite TV that I got after seeing this directv DVR Deals information. The judges are very intelligent and always give good feedback and really know the different aspects that go into baking and making cupcakes. It really is a great baking show and adds more excitement than any other baking shows you may see on the Food Network channel or any TV network for that matter.

Baking and cooking cannot be done in any other room in the house except the kitchen. Indeed it is where the magic happens but not all magics come out to be neat and mess free. Since the kitchen is usually overly used and abused with all the baking and cooking it is very much recommended to keep a healthy and clean work area.

Aside from the normal everyday cleaning it is very important to keep the counters very clean since most food preparations happen there. It's good to have professional services from time to time to ensure your kitchen will always be at its best. Consider marble cleaning polishing austin and granite tile cleaning austin to keep your work counter neat as ever. Make sure any cracks and grouting for tiles are well sealed not to harbor bacteria in it. Ceramic and slate tile sealing austin can be good for this job.

Kitchen safety is very important in preparing clean and safe foods. It should not be practiced at home alone so as any other establishments which require the same kind of food preparation.

The Holidays are a perfect time for family and friends to get together and show their appreciation for one another. During the holidays, my mother, father, son, and I travel to Buffalo, NY to visit my older sister and her husband. She has been living in Buffalo for quite some time now and we do not get to see one another often. Because of the eight hour distance between us, we like to travel out to see her during the Holidays. When we leave for our fun and exciting journey, we always set our home security alarm from before the travel.

During our trip to Buffalo, NY, we always visit Niagara Falls. Niagara falls is less than an hour away from Buffalo so it is actually very convenient. Niagara falls is a very popular and beautiful attraction of waterfalls located on the Niagara River. It is such a sight to see especially at night because there are beautiful lights that are lit. We take pictures and enjoy the sight.

Besides visiting the falls, we prefer to spend most of our trip together in the home just enjoying the company of one another. We also enjoy eating the delicious home cooked holiday meals and treats. The holidays are definitely the perfect time to spend with the ones you love the most and that is what we do.

It's just not Christmas if I haven't sat down and enjoyed The Bishop's Wife. As it happens, I just did that a few days back when it aired on satellite TV from I'll watch it again if they replay it, too.

The Bishop's Wife is a truly fantastic holiday film. It's a comedy and a drama both, with a touch of romance and a smidgen of magic. It's beautiful.

I've seen the promotional reel that the producers used to tease viewers to watch, calling the movie a man's film and a woman's movie. They were right because there really is something for everyone in this favorite of mine.

The suave and oh-so-handsome Cary Grant had the lead role as Dudley, an angel, who is sent to answer the prayer of the bishop, played by David Niven. The bishop has become a little too focused on his desire to get a new church built and is neglecting his lovely wife and daughter. Dudley recognizes this and uses it to reach the bishop.

The wife is portrayed by Loretta Young. She's perfect for the part, and she has a great rapport with Grant. It was on screen magic.

The one element of the film that takes me out of the story is the ice skating scene, only because it's so obviously fake. Other than that, it's pure magic.

I appreciate the guest post, Rodrigo Coffey
