12th Anniversary

My sister and her husband celebrated their 12th anniversary today! I know that the motif is pearls or jade color. Since we are into Feng Shui, the jade color was going to clash with her Kua #. So I gave her gold and white frames. I did sneak two jade colored frames. But she will use it for my nephew's room! Here is a portrait of her that I took 12 years ago!

Feng Shui and Home

I am always learning about Feng Shui and what elements about the home might bring some good luck and fortune. My Feng Shui master aka sister gifted us this clock. As you can see, it has 8 sides as 8 is often attributed to good luck.

Other things I am into are also colors that bring us good luck. Since I am a KUA 1, mint green is the color of wealth for me. I always have some sort of green on me. However, there was one time when a necklace and a bracelet both broke on me the same week. I had been wearing them daily for 2 years!!!! Luckily my Feng Shui master found a replacement with this gemstone pictured.

Just another day to eat out

Wishing you all much luck with all your Feng Shui practice!

Adopting a dog from a shelter

We are into month number three as dog owners. I had a major fear of dogs before adopting one. But I can tell you that dogs that are over 2 years old have worked out for us! We know because we tried adopting an 8 month old and sadly it didn't work out for us. Luckily that shelter gave you up to 72 hours to return it. The two dogs we have are 2.5 years old and close to 10 years old. They are a Maltipoo (weighing 13 pounds) and a Toy Poodle (weighing 5 pounds). The Toy Poodle is our newest one and the older one. Although we don't know their full history, Sophy, the Maltipoo knew basic commands. She does protect us and if you are a new person, she has to know you are not an enemy. If you ever see her, be sure to let her sniff you and then show her some lovin'. Emma the Toy Poodle is really sweet and gentle, she adjusts to new people very well and does not have a protective nature like Sophy (meaning she doesn't bark at strangers or new dogs).

Ways to be unplugged!

For my boys ages 6 and 9, here are the top three ways they can be unplugged! 1)Gardening at grandpa's such as using the hose to water the plants or using grandpa's gardening tools.

End of the School Year Kinder Graduate!

Yesterday marked my youngest son's graduation from Kinder! I have to say that when you get a teacher only a few are very much in tune to the needs of a child. We were lucky to have the same Kinder teacher for both our sons and we couldn't have been happier! One day their teacher would like to be a speech therapist and I cannot think of a better person to help children!

Toy Poodle

This year (2017) I turned 40 and around December of 2016 I really wanted to get over that fear! We adopted Sophy a maltipoo in January from the Harris County Animal Shelter and then yesterday we adopted a toy poodle from the same shelter. Here are some pictures of Emma and Sophy.

She's fluffier than me and smaller than me ... I do like her @harriscountyanimalshelter

Emma was 5 pounds at her first vet visit today. The shelter thought she was about 5 years old, but the vet thought she was probably near 10 years old. Stay tuned for more Emma the Toy Poodle stories!!!

Travel Shoes for Greece!

I was googling what shoes my parents might need for their travel to Greece. I discovered on a travel site that Ahnu brand shoes were popular
Ordered these for my mom and two other pairs from 6PM They were more than 70% off!

That's a wrap!

Sophy Photos

Sophy our poodle mix enjoys chilling in the house. Since hubby works from home, she stays comfortably next to him on the ottoman. Here she is posing with a free item from T-Mobile (bandana). My favorite place in the house to photograph her is in the kitchen. It's got the best light.

Yes it's true I do just lie around all day
