"The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. we cannot change our past. we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. we cannot change the inevitable. the only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it."

It's a funny thing about comin' home.

Looks the same,
smells the same,
feels the same.

You'll realize what's changed..is you.

sweet tooth

It's been awhile since I've treated myself to something sweet. So my buddy bought this delicious selection of cheesecake from Sam's Club for $14.

Vanilla Bean was my favorite!
(Random fact: vanilla bean frappuccino is my favorite drink at Starbucks.)

Turtle was also really good...
Eh..this cheesecake was too strong for my taste..

"Wine makes every meal an occasion,
every table more elegant, every day more civilized."
~ Andre Simon, "Commonsense of Wine" ~

* Relax with a glass of wine
* Snack on cheese & crackers

looking for something to lift your spirits?

Such a cute and uplifting movie.
Just add a teensy bit more humor into it and I would give it a B. >.<

Growing up I've always enjoyed watching Disney's movies, and though I've missed more of Disney's traditional animation and story lines..I'm starting to become more comfortable with the Disney & Pixar collaboration. I suppose change is a good thing when the world we're living in now is evolving in a more innovative direction.

Disney*Pixar should really be thankful for Michael Giacchino, who has composed scores for movies such as The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and of course Up. Without him I don't think the movie would of been as enjoyable. I like listening to music and seeing how they blend in so well with the film.

And here's the music to some of my favorite scenes:

Track 3. Married Life
Track 4. Carl Goes Up
Track 15. Stuff We Did
