Rex Might Have Some Competition

Posted on February 25, 2018 by under Babies, Wishlist.    

Brian took Alex in to the dealership for an airbag recall last week and they gave him a 2018 RX as a loaner. He immediately fell in love and was raving about it. I asked him to send me pictures and then brought him back down to earth by reminding him that we haven’t had a car payment in years and I’d like to keep it that way.

We both agreed that we don’t want car payments. The car sure is nice, though. Check out the pics below.


The color of the exterior is the same as Alex’ exterior color.


So we would have matching gray cars.


The leather interior looks really nice.


It has a sunroof just like Rex (Brian’s RX).


Brian liked how they reconfigured the panel, which allowed for a bigger navigation display. Brian says it’s double the size of the one in his car.


I think had we been our old selves Brian probably would have traded Rex in without batting an eyelash. No offense, Rex. But we are more responsible now. We vowed never to get into debt, ever again. Plus, Rex has been super reliable. Brian might be drooling over the new and improved version of Rex but there’s really no good reason to replace him. Maybe in a few years. We will have to save up for it, though.

My Collection of Dance Games

Posted on January 16, 2018 by under Games, Shopping, Wishlist.    

I asked Brian to take me to Game Stop before we had my last Zumba World Party party because I wanted to beef up my collection of dancing games. We found some games at Game Stop but we didn’t remember what I already had correctly so we ended up getting a duplicate of Just Dance 2016. Brian had to take the game back the next day since I already had it. It worked out great for him though because he ended up getting one of the games he wanted.

In the meantime, we didn’t want something like this to happen again so we decided to take a picture of all my dancing games. Next time we go to the store to pick up a new game for me, we can consult my collection first and then we won’t end up mistakenly buying the same games over again.

Here’s what I have so far..


Of course I have Zumba World Party. This is the whole reason that we bought me an XBOX and Kinect to begin with.

I also have several Just Dance games.





Just Dance 2016 is the one we ended up buying again on accident. I didn’t realize I already had it. The ones I’m missing from the series are actually Just Dance, Just Dance 2, Just Dance 3, Just Dance 2017, and Just Dance 2018. I don’t really much care about the first three Just Dance games but I did order Just Dance 2017 since they didn’t have it at Game Stop. I’m waiting for the price of the latest game in the series, Just Dance 2018, to drop in price before I buy it.

As far as Dance Central games go, I have these ones…




I think these are the only ones they ever made in the series, though. Do you guys know of any dancing game that I should definitely add to my collection?

Surprise Bath

Posted on November 25, 2017 by under Travel, Wishlist.    


One of the best things about having butler service and having great butlers is that they know what you want even before you do. Our butlers were phenomenal at anticipating our needs.

On our first full day at the resort, we came back to our room after playing in the pool all the day and found the tub ready for a bath. They decorated it too. The bath was so pretty that I had to take some photos.

Brian and I were both bewildered. We were like, “Did you ask for this?” “No. Did you?” Neither of us asked for the bath to be run yet there it was — warm and inviting. Not ones to let things go to waste, we promptly got naked and hopped in.

The warm bath felt so good. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We made a mental note to ask for it again because it was so awesome. Of course, we forgot. We did have a bath made for us a couple of times without asking. That was nice. We enjoyed it every time. We had the best butlers ever.

They were attentive and helpful and knew exactly what we needed before we could think it. The entire time that we were at the resort, we kept forgetting to grab lunch because either we were too busy playing in the pool or we fell asleep in the cabana and every single time they were there to bring us lunch either from the Jerk Shack or Barefoot by the Sea.

This was easily one of the best vacations we’ve ever had. I hope we can make our budget work so we can start going there every year.

Goodbye Bags

Posted on September 11, 2016 by under Shopping, Wishlist.    

I retired a couple of bags this weekend.


The zipper of my Thirty-One gym bag broke a while back but I had been enduring it because I didn’t want to have to move everything over to a different bag. Plus, I always felt that the big blue duffel/gym bag that I got from work a couple of years ago was far too big so I didn’t want to switch to it.


I finally moved all of my stuff over to it yesterday out of necessity. Although it’s a little big, it actually works out because I can fit two pairs of high-top sneakers in the shoe compartment; whereas I could only fit one pair in my old gym bag.


I also had to finally retire the Coach crossbody bag that I got from an outlet in Arizona almost six years ago. It was money well spent because it has been my everyday, take everywhere, bang-around bag from day one. It is a shame that they don’t make it anymore, otherwise I would have just ordered the exact same thing to replace it. After all, the signature print matches my wallet.


I couldn’t find a suitable crossbody from Coach. And, it seemed like they weren’t making bags in the old signature print I had. I think it might be a retired material. I had to completely switch brands.

Here is the replacement:


It’s an upgrade for several reasons. (1) It is actually bigger than my old crossbody. It’s like a full-fledged messenger bag but on a smaller scale. (2) It’s got way more compartments to hide stuff. Lots of different pockets. My old crossbody only had the main compartment and a small outside pocket. (3) It cost most more than my old crossbody. But, considering I keep bags for five years or more and I pretty much use the same bag everyday (rather than switching bags on whim or match my outfit), it’s going to get lots of mileage. I don’t mind paying a bit more for something functional, practical, and won’t be collecting dust on a shelf in my closet.

The nice thing about this is that, since it’s black, I won’t have to replace my wallet. It doesn’t match my wallet perfectly but it kind of coordinates with it. It works for now, anyhow. Unless someone gets me a wallet (hint, hint). My birthday is just around the corner after all.

Hello, Dolly!

Posted on August 9, 2015 by under Things to Do, Wishlist.    

Reason #374 why I have the best husband ever: he agreed to see Hello, Dolly! with me at Century II. How many husbands indulge their wives in this way? Seriously? I think the typical husband would have found an excuse to get out of it. “Why don’t you take one of your friends?” some would say. Not Brian. Why? Because he is the best husband ever.

Music Theatre Wichita completed another awesome season. This year the lineup consisted of Aida; Disney’s My Son Pinocchio; Billy Elliot; Big Fish; and Hello, Dolly! I only got to see the last two shows and they were both fantastic. Though, Big Fish was by far my favorite of the two.

Last year I had the opportunity to watch the West Side Story with Brian and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with my little sister Nickira. Both shows were great too. The 2016 lineup is fantastic:

Nice Work If You Can Get It
Beauty and the Beast
Jesus Christ Superstar
Mama Mia!

Brian and I have been very impressed with the shows we’ve seen. That, and I actually want to see all of these, so we’re considering season tickets next year.

Except, tickets are kind of pricey. It’s going to cost us about $500 to get our season tickets for next year. If you would like to donate to the cause of bringing more culture into our lives, you may do so here. Think of it as an anniversary present. Or, you could also think of it as a birthday present to me. After all, my birthday is coming up in a couple of months. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and support. You guys are the best!
