A Celebration Or Two

One thing everyone knows about me is that I love to attend the Mardi Gras festival every year. It’s always a wild time and it’s as fun as anything I’ve ever done. Each time I go, I like to dress up. It’s half the fun of going. Luckily, this year I found a cool site that has the supplies I need to make my trip complete. They have a wide selection of items to choose from.

This year I plan to attend the festival again and will dress up as well. I purchased one of the Mardi Gras Masks that was available from the site. I think it looks great and I can’t wait to try it out. I’m sure I’ll be in the thick of the party and be the envy of all who see me.

Hopefully I will be able to use this mask again at another party that we sometimes dress up for. I can’t wait to use the laser party lights that I bought a few months ago. I haven’t held a “theme party” in a long time. I think I am long over due!

Seattle’s Best Decaf Coffee Used In Our Break Room

Drinking coffee is relatively new to me. I have always been a tea drinker. But I kept being handed different types of coffee drinks at work that people would buy for everyone and eventually I started getting used to the taste, since I just couldn’t throw it away and they kept insisting to at least give it a try. I still enjoy my hot cup of tea first thing in the morning and the one that I have right after dinner. But throughout the day I do enjoy a cup of coffee now and then and co-workers are still coming in with new coffee based drinks that are on sale or are some type of holiday special, which is fun!

The coffee that is always available in the break room is this best decaf coffee that I’ve tried so far. It is Seattle’s Best Blend Decaf Coffee that they order online.

I do try and drink as much decaf coffee and my tea as well, so it doesn’t make me too wired up and we all know that caffeine is not good for you in the long run. I don’t think caffeine affects me like it does so many other people. I really can live with or with out it.

Hot Deals A Plenty

There are Hot Deals a plenty going on right now at Musician’s Friend’s website. Now is the perfect time to start seriously looking at great deals online much like the awesome deal on fender rumble bass combo amp. Unbelievable that in just over two months we will be running around like crazy people trying to take care of all the things that we deem necessary in order to make the summer season a success.

Coming from such a musical inclined family I usually try and find musical related items on all of the gift giving holidays that never stop arriving.

These days I am not going to use any of my credit cards. Last year at Christmas time I almost made it by only using cash, but three days before the “big” day I had to use my VISA for just a few things that I couldn’t manage to live without. I hope that I can truly make it this year.

Brian Baggett the Video Presenter for Musicians Friend Private Reserve

The term “private reserve” sounds so uppity, but in all reality anyone can purchase a musicians friend private reserve if you know what you want/need and you have the means to  pay for what most discriminating players and collectors are interested in.

I have been doing business with Musician’s Friend for some time now. Their website is way up high on my “Favorites” list and I don’t see it coming down any time soon. With Christmas shopping in full swing considering it is finally after Labor Day. The musical side of the family is always looking for new musical related items. Musician’s Friend has helped me figure out the perfect gift time and time again over the years.

A Birthday Visit

My younger brother had moved to Chicago a few years back and I hadn’t seen him in so long that I saved up enough money for him to visit close to the date of his Birthday. He excitingly responded back saying he would love to, so I got to searching for a plane ticket for him to get here and back. I found tickets just in time for him to make it and spend a week with us right before his birthday.

Knowing it was his birthday, I wanted to find something that he not only wanted but needed, so I could get him a birthday present and watch him open it this time. I spoke to our mom later on that evening to see if she had talked to my kid brother lately to see if there was anything in particular she knew he needed or wanted. She had mentioned something about an irig for android guitar interface I could get for him at a great price on a website she knew of, for his guitar. I agree that a hundred dollars is a great price for this particular item, but dang I have dished out so much already for his plane tickets that I really didn’t want to spend that much at this point.

She was going to get it for him, but she said she figured I could get it since she already had two things for him for his birthday anyway. So I jumped on my laptop and got to searching this website she told me about and quickly found what she was talking about with such ease. Yes it was easy to find and order and it was a great price. He better be thrilled with it or else I’m going to get an attitude real quick like.

It showed up at my doorstep in no time and I quickly wrapped it up to give to my younger brother a few days before he returned home. Needless to say my brother was ecstatic to have time with his family and to also get some things he really wanted or needed.
