Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a good weekend! It’s been so HOT here but it’s been alright. I spent time with my boyfriend on Saturday. He’s currently remodeling his house. We went to a new Mexican restaurant and I helped him with yard work. I pulled out the weeds and planted flowers in the front yard. I’ve always loved gardening. It makes me feel productive and accomplished after I see the results. I forgot to take a picture! Oh well, maybe next time! I took my son to Dave & Buster’s on Friday. It’s a huge arcade with lots of food and alcoholic beverages. I also went to see fellow blogger and friend, Ryan Loera play at a bar on Friday night. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you probably remember me blogging about his band Revolt, his blog and YouTube channel. You can check/out follow his blog here. 

I think I want to try this cheesecake/slice of heaven! Photo from

I’m off to Albuquerque in a couple of hours. I’m taking my son and grandmother for a little vacation. We plan on gambling, eating at The Cheesecake Factory, bowling and just relaxing for a couple of days. I’m also meeting fellow blogger and friend Johnna from All Things Chronic. You can check out/follow her blog here. We’re really excited to meet at The Cheesecake Factory! Albuquerque is a four-hour drive from here. Since I’m driving over there, I decided to create a small playlist. I’m including a small sample songs I plan on listening to on the road.

One old school band I want to include has been mentioned by a couple of other bloggers. Gwin from Seek the Best Blog included “Weekend Girl” in her weekly My Jams post from 1984. You can check out/follow her here. Even though we both like S.O.S. Band, me and Tracy from A Joyful Process joke around about them and their songs. Don’t ask me why because I’m not really sure! 😀 Anyway, I’m taking you back to 1983 with S.O.S. Band’s “Just Be Good to Me.” Tracy said “Just Be Good to Me” is one of his favorite songs, especially growing up. He even bought the record twice! You can check out/follow his blog here. I’m looking out for his upcoming post about S.O.S. Band. Have a great rest of the day, everyone and I’ll be back in a few days.

Santana is no stranger here! I know I’ve included this one and others here but here it is! I’m taking you back to 1971.

Journey is no stranger here either! I’m taking you back to the year I was born, 1981.

Mana takes me back to my high school days.

I never get tired of this one! 




  1. I have a very important decision to make. It will affect the rest of my life. Chocolate mousse or red velvet cheesecake? Having to make adult decisions is hard. 🙂

  2. You don’t seem boring! I’m excited to eat cheesecake too! I need to win more money! I have a potty mouth myself. They say people who cuss are honest and smart. 😉

  3. I’m not sure why you’re excited to meet me in person, since I’m one of the most boring people I know. Let’s be honest — we’re both excited about the food. Neither of us have been to The Cheesecake Factory. I’ve been perusing the menu for hours, but I still can’t decide what I want to eat. And since your grandma will be joining us, I’m hoping I can control my tendency to use a bad word (or two). It’ll be hard, but I think I can do it. 🙂

  4. Thanks Sharon! 🙂 A triple double is when a player earns a double digit number in three out five statistics like for example in points, rebounds, etc. It’s usually a term for basketball. Ooh Queen and Prince are also great choices!

  5. Have a great time Lisa. 🙂 Fantastic song choices. Love Ice Cube, but one question what is a triple double? lol Can you tell I don’t follow sports? I have a rule in my car. If I reach a destination and a Santana song is playing the car doesn’t get shut off till the song is over. The same rule applies to Queen and Prince 🙂

  6. Thanks for checking it out, Gwin! Yes, I’m familiar with the Isley Brothers! I forgot about “Footsteps in the Dark!” It’s been a minute since I’ve heard that one. I hear “Between the Sheets” on the radio ALL of the time! Lol.

  7. Wow! Thanks for the shout out Lisa!

    YAAASSS! You created an awesome playlist here. Journey is one of my faves! Santana? Whaaa? The bomb!

    I hope y’all have a BALL! Take lots of pictures and notes so you can share as much as possible when you return.

    By the way, do you like “Footsteps in the dark” by the Isley Brothers? You know Ice Cube sampled that for “Today was a good day.” If you don’t know it, do yourself a favor and check it out. I think you’ll love it!

    Thanks again Lisa🌹
