might know them as At Last from the first season of the tv show
America's Got Talent.
DJay left the group to head back to home to Dallas and the three that are left hans, justin and mike are now going by Tatum jones.
They recently do my night club sets which I haven't really been in the night club mood for a while now. So when they finally performed at a nice chill lounge I thought I'd go support.
They're crazy good and I suggest to go see them perform whenever possible and pick up their cd at the shows.

i've been in love with these Giorgio Armani pumps for a while now some might recognize them from some of my previous post on my old blog . i love shoes that are a little different and that has some character. don't get me wrong i still love classic ones too.
i love these Christian Louboutin's Orlan Double-platform sandals. if you watch Project Runway season 5, these are the shoes that Heidi wears in the opening with the red dress. they don't look too hot in the photo on the left, but they look FAB on heidi... and not just because they're ono heidi.
Henry (Slater) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with his wife, Lily (Yara Martinez, "The Hitcher"), their two kids, a dog, and a minivan. Edward (Slater) is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill. Albright works at Janus Headquarters for Mavis Heller (Alfre Woodard, "Desperate Housewives"), a tough, extremely intelligent woman with a hidden compassionate side. Henry and Edward are polar opposites who share only one thing in common - the same body. When the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, Henry and Edward are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element.

i was watching tv (as usual) and i came across a commercial for one of the many day time talk shows. it was a lady yelling at people telling them that they're living way beyond what they can afford. it got me thinking about how the hubby and i spend our money and if we're in fact "living within our means". it's a hard thing to swallow but i think its so important to check and evaluate your finical situation... especially now that our economy is going down the Sh*tter.
a) Not spending more than you earn (as in, you make $100 and can spend up to $100 but not more)?
b) Not spending more than you earn and having no debt (other than "good" debt like a mortgage or student loan)?
c) Spending less than you earn, saving the rest and having no debt (other than "good" debt)?
like most people out there the hubby and i have (at one point) spent more than our "means"... when times were rough that is. BUT based off this article, surprisingly we are (living within our means). personally i define "living in your means as the letter C (above). We spend less than we make, we pay off all our bills, pay our credit cards in full, the only debt we have are daren's school loan, and my car loan and we put money away each month, even though i wish we would put more in but we like living comfortable at the same time and even though we seem to be living within what we bring home i still want to evaluate and edit what we spend.
last month again i was watching TV and this episode came on and so of course i watched it. it truly baffles me how some people are so irresponsible that they'd rather go shop for clothes then pay their electric bills, rented furniture bills, and/or cell phone bills. my god people!
my parents aren't the best at how they save or spend their money. but when my brother and i were younger they did open up a checking account for us to save our money in. i honestly don't know how it got instilled in me, but ever since i got my first credit card i HAD to pay my balance off in full. no one was making me, but maybe the "chinese" (don't worry i'm chinese and not racist) in me didn't want to pay for the interest you'd have to pay if you didn't pay off your balance. haha it's funny but true and it's still very much true to this day.
also if you start to let your debt grow just a little... it's way too easier for it to keep going. that another reason why i don't like to leave a balance.
but with all that said.. i need to go shopping. muwahaha jk... kinda! =p
money is always a sticky conversation for most, but ask yourself...
ARE YOU LIVING WITHIN YOUR MEANS?

around 8 years since I've actually been a tomboy but still LOL.
The pumas photographed above is one if the many pairs of sneakers I
have and out of all the brands of sneakers I have, PUMAS are the ONLY
ones that the soles have fallen APART. The first pair of pumas that
fell apart on me I thought that it was because I wore them out, but
these above I only wore a handfull of times. it's like over time their soles melt away and become sticky and mushy. it's happened to 4 pairs of Pumas.
So WARNING pumas are CRAP!
even though the weather is extremely warm here in la la land, i'm still in need of finding a cute leather jacket in black. i found one that i like, but not in black... but i'm assuming that if cole haan makes it in brown, they most likely make it in black as well.. don't you think? *crossing fingers*

(photo taken with my iphone, on the way to the office)
I'm crossing my fingers praying that the weather is going to get
cooler and the rain will start falling. I need a good snowboarding
season... It's been 3 years since there was a good amount of snow fall
here in California.
But you know, one thing I can't complain about is that 3 years ago was
when I truly needed the good snow season and it was!!! That was the
season I found out my brother was told he had lymphoma and to keep my
mind off of his illness I took to the snow. Today I thought to myself
"I don't know how I would've gotten thru that time of my life if I
didn't go snowboarding." it was like someone was looking after me.
before 3 years ago I hadn't gone snowboarding in 3 years. Mostly
because I didn't know anyone who went boarding down here in lala land.
Luckly my friend Mina wanted to learn how to snowboard that year and
we went crazy. We pretty much went snowboarding almost ever weekend
since Xmas that year. We went so much that by the end of the season
she had already picked up carving.
We've been disappointed with every season since. We're hopping this
season is the season to bring it out of the slump so we're crossing
our fingers. It is a little too early to tell, but I'm over to sun and
I'm ready for the rain, cold and snow already.

one of the hardest for me is the bedroom, only because it's the room we're probably going to be spending the most time in. i'm thinking i would like to have it feel like a hotel room. (light bulb turns on) ill check out hotel websites to get ideas on the bedroom decor. why didn't i think of that earlier. ha
i did it the hard way by searching on Google Images but i did come across this cute blog called Inside Avenue that had a cute photo from Metropolitan Home Mag
