Merry Christmas!

Let me start by saying, Merry Christmas to all of you!   I am a bit late this year in making our personalized greeting cards but it is better than late than never right? I gathered my lovelies last night and took some  family photos  by our Christmas tree.  The men always oppose to this but they will thank me later (I hope) lol.
 Our  furry minions are always ready for photo shoot, I just wish Champ would look in the camera.  I had a free offer for  greeting cards as a reward but forgot to use it right away so I let that opportunity expired which made me upset.  So now, I had to pay for what I have ordered wahhh.  That's one of the consequences  of being forgetful or I'll be honest, getting old lol.  Lesson learned!
I was gonna let it  fly without a  personalized greeting card this year but I didn't feel  it's right especially that this is our first year in this new home.  The problem of  ordering it this late is that, the shipping takes time so I won't be able to get them till next week.  I procrastinated  big time this year but at least I am done shopping for gifts which I am glad.  I did most of my shopping online.  Again, my regret was not doing it on Black Friday, I woud have saved  some  cash.  Glad I found some deals online, it wasn't much as compared to the Black Friday deals but I still saved some. 
May all of us have a wonderful Christmas celebration and a peaceful  new year.  Hoping for the best for the coming year of the Rooster 2017.  According to  Chinese Zodiac, you are a rooster if you were born in the years 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, and 2029.  My husband and  daughter are both roosters.

Keeping the Show on Schedule with Reliable Equipment

Your stage hands have a responsibility that can be heavy in every sense of the word. Not only must they abide by a strict performance schedule; they also must haul, shove, and pull heavy backgrounds and sound equipment on and off the stage quickly. When you want your production to stay on schedule without a hitch, it is important that you provide your reliable stage hands with equipment that can make their jobs easier. Every play can be a success when you invest in gear like carts, flat beds, theater casters, and more today.

Varieties for Every Job

Before you visited the website, you may have been unaware of how many sizes and varieties casters are made in today. You can find casters that feature single wheels that can hold up a slender or narrow piece of background or casters that come with three wheels on a single base that can hold up heavy and bulky equipment. 

When you shop online, you can discover gear that you can use for every play production. Large speakers, for example, may fit better on top of triangular caster sets while background screens may fit better on casters that have one or two wheels. 

You can explore at length the types available to you on the website. The site has a categorized listing of all of its casters to the left of the page. You can click on each category and discover what models best suit your stage hands and your theater. You can then purchase this gear and have it shipped directly to you.

Other Casters for Sale

Along with finding casters that you can use on stage, you also may need casters for other purposes. For example, if you operate a dinner theater, you may need casters that you can attach to your food service carts. 

The carts need to stay upright as your wait staff serves your clients. The casters for sale can hold up heavy carts while going forward, backwards, and swiveling around the tables and chairs on the audience floor.

It is the seemingly smallest equipment that can make the biggest impact on your performance's success. You can keep your show on schedule and give your stage hands a break by investing in gear like casters and more that you can buy online today. These items come in a wide varieties and styles.

Football Banquet at Williams Golf & Country Club

Last Sunday (November 13) was the football banquet.  We got ready  a little early so we took some family pictures while waiting for the time for us to go to the venue of the said event.  I love it when my men are all dressed up.  They don't really dressed up often so it's fun to see them  all spiffy and prim.  
The event was held at  Williams Golf and Country Club  in Marland Heights Weirton, WV.   Driving to the place is a real treat,  the golf  course is  beautiful.  
Williams Golf & Country Club is located in the heart of Weirton, West Virginia.  It is established in 1932, the club features an 18-hole, par 72 golf course and a clubhouse renowned for its banquet and dining facilities. 
Williams  Golf and Country Club  is rated in the top ten of West Virginia’s best golf courses. It  is beautiful and well maintained.  Its layout offers challenge for players at every level. 
According to their website, over the years Williams has been the site of three West Virginia Open tournaments and numerous Tri-State, PGA and other events.
It was a really good way of ending the football season, for family and friends to get together and have some good conversation while enjoying delicious food.
My husband worked on this business establishments 30 years ago when he was a teenager and he said that almost everything is still the same inside the reception hall.  He said that there was this rich guy  who was  a frequent client at the club and every Christmas he would give a dollar to someone.  At one time my husband  got the lucky dollar and his friends were teasing him about that.  I told him that he should have kept the dollar as a souvenir lol.
The place looks  old but still well maintained.  The high ceiling is  beautiful but you can tell that  it is really old.
All the players sat in one long table.    It gave all of the the chance to talk to each other before they part ways.  The Jr. Dons football is consist of two catholic schools, St. Joseph and St. Paul.
The Banquet hall has a stunning view of the Ohio river.
While waiting for the program to start, we were able to walk around and take pictures.
I love the furniture and paintings that they have.  You can tell they're old but still beautiful.
It is awesome to see our kids socialize with their friends even though they don't go to the same school but they are united through sports.
Most of these kids will go to the same catholic  high school which is Madonna.
Through out the  football season, I have meet some  good people and became friends  with a few of them.
I hope that next football season will be as  fun as this year.  They did not win a game bu they learned a lot and they have fun so that's what mattered the most.  
The family that I got closer with won't be doing the next season.  I am going to miss them.
I applaud  the parents who  put together this event.  They have done a  wonderful job in preparing everything.  The program and the  names with  meals are set upon  the entrance so we just  picked ours.  We were the first ones there so we wondered why they were two sets of our name, it must have been a mistake.  

There was an appetizer served before the main course.  They served  salad and  fresh baked bread.   My daughter and I had salmon hollandaise and my husband had steak.  Our son had chicken.
Dessert was also served after wards.
The warding ceremony  was done after we ate.
On our way home, we stopped at one  part of the road  and took some pictures.
It was one wonderful  event that we all enjoyed.  Looking forward to a new season next year.
I was wearing an earth toned dress so the lip locked stain "shae" was a perfect lippie!  It contains primer stain, and kip gloss ion one.  I love that it lasts even after  I ate and the shade really compliment my skin tone.  
 This month's  Beauty Box 5 has the  theme "It's too cold for a naked face".  It has a deep conditioning hair mask that I truly loved, I used it three times.  The hair mask  repairs damage and breakage to your hair.  I love love love the smell of it.  It also has a  pack of make up remover  cleansing towellets.  Although I don't use make up, it is  great to have it in my purse especially when we go somewhere and I want to refresh my face.  It is unfortunate that the shadow trio  was  damaged during the transit.  The angle brush as a great addition too.  
Overall, it was a really great event.  We had fun and our bellies were full!

Their Christmas Wishes

There are   many events that I captured in photos but haven't got the chance to write yet due to lack of time.  I miss the days when I was just starting to blog because I would write  about the things that happen right away.  Nowadays, I am lucky to  write  one in a day.  We are just too busy that I can't really  focus  my time in blogging.  But anyway, these photos were taken during the last day of school last school year.  Imagine that, this was seven months ago!
 We were  already starting to pack our things  on this time as you can see in the picture, there is a box.  By this time, our basement is getting full with  packed boxes.  The process of buying a house takes a long time.  I remember putting a bod  on a house in January but we didn't get to move till June.  
 She was very excited on this day because she works hard in getting high grades all through the school year and I promised them that if they get all hundreds in their report card, they will also receive a hundred dollars from us.  She was however devastated when she had one 99 in her report card.  I told her that she will get the reward anyway but she still cried because she really  studied hard.  
Rewarding our children with their effort is a good incentive for them to strive hard.  Since both of them really tried their best effort to maintain their  high grades, hubby and I are getting them what they want for Christmas.  We already got  the  one wish that she really wanted since last year that  we weren't able to get.  I am sure she will be surprise to  have the violin for Christmas.  I am still looking for a good deal for what  our son  wants.  It ain't the weather king but something that he wants to try in music.  We might just go back to the  the music store in our area to get it since I can't find it  online.  Their Christmas wishes will come true this year.

Moisturizing Lipstick for Fall

"Boss Babe Comin' Thru"
October - Beauty Box 5 
October is almost done, how time passes by so  fast!  A lot of things happen, a lot of things have been accomplished at home, and a lot of things have changed.  October was a  month of surprises for  my family.  Hubby and I have been working on   some home improvements and glad to see some  things getting accomplished.  The only day off we have is Sunday but it is all good, I love  DIYs!
 My partner-in-crime for sick over the weekend but glad that she have recovered quickly.  I had to sleep in her room for two  nights to  take  care of her because she couldn't  sleep.   Soup and ginger tea were part of the healing process for her.  The change in the weather  really affects a lot of us.  When the kids goes to school and  some of the  children  in school are sick, chances are, they will get  the sickness as well.  Hopefully we killed all the germs that made her sick. We sanitized the house  over the weekend.
 The contents for this month's Beauty Box 5 items include, ivory lace highlighter pencil by chella, Femme gold or red fragrance from Color Me, custom nail appliques by Emery and Ivory, moisturizing lipstick by Real Her, and ultra hydrating body cream by Amlactin.
 My favorite is the fragrance and the lipstick.  I also like the hydrating body cream, it is a must have for my skin that easily dries up whenever the cold season starts.  The body cream  gently exfoliates and it deeply hydrates.  I will ave to buy a  big size of this body cream.
 The citrusy note of the Color Me perfume is so nice.  I like having this  tiny bottle perfume in my purse, it's a nice  hing to have especially when you go somewhere.
 I am not fond of using  custom nail appliques so it is my least favorite of the five products.

The moisturizing lipstick  is a nice one as it is a perfect marriage of  gloss and matte.  I love  the shade and the fact that it doesn't make my lips feeling cracked or dry.  It's funny whenever I put a little bit of make up on, my husband or my kids would ask "What's the occasion?"  Lol.  I just don't use make up too often so it's an odd thing for them when they see me with make up on.
