Super Saturdays

by Leila Dayne


Years ago my friend and I started a tradition called Super Saturday. It was the day our parents would take us to get new books and comics and occasionally rent a movie. We spent all day pouring over every last detail of the comic books, I would painstakingly drag out my books so that I could make them last longer. And then we’d stay up late eating popcorn and talking about them while watching our rented movie.

Nowadays Super Saturday is a tradition we have at our house once a month…sometimes more depending on how we feel. Personally it’s one of my favourite days! We spend the whole day lounging in our pajama’s, playing board and card games, reading comics and drawing/colouring/painting and watching our favourite movies and/or shows. Any meals made are usually quick and easy, if they’re not just delivered. :] My son and I talk a lot but having an entire day to just relax and hang out is really special to me. I know I will never look back and think, “Man, I wish I spent more time cleaning the house instead of enjoying all that great time with my kiddo!!”

For today’s entertainment (that we’ve planned so far, some stuff ends up being a spur-of-the-moment ‘oh hey, look whats on Netflix’ finds!) we have:

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs : This is one of our go-to favs!! It’s great for the whole family!!

Up next are some episodes of The Big Bang Theory. I’ve found that this is a show you either love or hate. Being a bookworm and self-professed geek myself I love the wit and humor of this. Most of the adult jokes go over the kiddo’s head but I like that it demonstrates that being educated and intelligent are a positive thing.

And there would be no Super Sunday without one of my favourite people in the entire world, Mister Stanley Martin Lieber. Better known as Stan Lee. The comic book GENIUS I’ve always admired. And today just so happens to be his 90th birthday as well!! So we may just try to bake up some of these delicious little cupcakes!! (I’m sure they won’t turn out as pretty, but as long as they taste good and we have fun that’s all that matter!!!)

Hope everyone is having a very Super Saturday!!

End of the Year

by Leila Dayne


As we get ready to close out the end of 2012, I am scrambling to finish all of the goals I set for myself this year. It has a been a whirlwind of a year in the very best way!!
People are always talking about New Years resolutions but I like to make a list of goals instead of one resolution because it makes it easier to stick to and complete.
I tend to make a list of twelve things I want to complete each year which gives me one thing to focus on each month. It makes them more realistic and easier to stick to.
My last goal to fulfill this year was to get my last two ear piercings. I’m not a big fan of pain so I put it off until the last minute. But I find comfort at my tattoo shop. It’s become a place where the employees are more like family than anything else. I feel that with anything of this nature, be it tattoos or piercings, developing a good relationship with the people you choose is very important. It puts me at ease and also ensures that not only will you get fantastic service but you will always end up with exactly what you want without any hidden surprises.
What are your New Year resolutions or goals? I’m beginning on mine right now.

All my love,
LD

I love Outkast! For awhile you couldn’t hear a song that didn’t feature one, if not the both of them. :]
