Easter Eggs

I had the best time this weekend visiting my dear friend Niki, who by the way is an excellent hostess. One activity she planned was to make decoupage eggs, featured in April 2009 Martha Stewart Living, which came out beautifully.

Also, we had so much fun creating Easter Eggs together that it just may become our new yearly tradition.

A Spot of Tea

I really enjoy a nice cup of hot tea sometimes and this weekend got to have a spot of this Rooibos Red Tea, also known as Bush Tea, popular in Southern Africa.
*Bonus* Naturally Caffeine Free and Full of Antioxidants
It was really good and have been craving another cup only cannot seem to track down a box of my own. I'm thinking maybe World Market just might save the day with this dilemma?

Where the Wild Things Are

I heard a little blib about this quite a while back and then today the movie poster was revealed plus the October 16, 2009 release date. The book is a classic and if you have never read the book ... then go now and buy it for yourself and/or any children in your life.

Away We Go

I really want to see this ... just the preview alone has me hooked.

I have decided to start doing yoga or attempt to do yoga at least. It has been something I've always wanted to try and think it would be a good practice, especially in the evenings. The benefits are countless: relaxation, streching of muscles, improved flexibility, meditation etc. All to improve the body, mind and soul.

500 Days of Summer

This movie was a big hit at Sundance and the buzz about it seems to be swarming blogs lately. I would like to take a peek when it debuts this summer since it looks adorable, with a hint of sadness but in funny way.

The Visitor

I had been seeing and hearing about this movie lately and finally decided to watch the film for myself. It is quietly incredible in that it just sort of sneaks up on you with so much heart and I HIGHLY recommend everyone to rent this one.
