It's Friday People!

I know all you hard working people out there are usually so excited about it being Friday because the weekend is right around the corner. So why is a person who's at home all week excited about it being Friday? Well let me tell you - I get my hubby home for the weekend and this weekend we are going shopping! Yippie! I tend to get so excited to go shopping for clothes - I have to get a dress to wear to a wedding - but when I get to the mall and start trying on a million things I usually lose all the excitement. To me trying on clothes in the mall is just a way of reminding me I'm just to fat! Most times I see parts of my body I didn't know existed .. like that little bit of extra belly/tummy here and there! Gosh help me! 

If I ever find a bottle with a genie in it for sure that will be my first wish - to be the perfect size (whatever the heck that is) and to never be able to get fat again! Losing the weight is such a pain in the ass. And to all of you out there who keep telling me time to have babies.. did you ever think about if I get pregnant now how much bigger I will get and let's face it with my tract record of losing weight (-2 pounds ever so often) can you imagine after I give birth! My goodness! Oooh! 

Anyways so tomorrow I'm going shopping and on Monday is our ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! Yay we made it a year.. take that Britney Spears with your sexy body! Sadly after that we will be apart for a month but that's part of this life and I've learnt to make it work. So now I am going to spend some time working on our wedding anniversary video. I love doing these video things. I did one for my uncle to celebrate his life for his 70th Birthday and it came out really really good (Seriously!) but I spent more than one month editing it and tweaking it and making it perfect. Now I don't have that much time.. dammit why did I only think about doing this now.. 3 days before our anniversary? Good going Leandra! 

Anyways let me get back to tidying up and then on to the good stuff. Have a great Friday people, don't drink too much today on your after work limes and have a wicked weekend!

Luv Lee.

Visit Copacabana Beach Brazil!

Thinking of visiting Brazil? Want to do the tourist stuff and see what's popular? Then you should definitely visit Copacabana Beach Brazil. The Copacabana area is so much more than just beach. The area is really beautiful and there is lots to see and do. Located in the south zone of Rio de Janeiro (also called the "Zona Sul"), Copacabana is a definite must see place.

Like I said, there's lots to see and do in Copacabana such as:

  • Take a stroll along the wavy pavement ("calçadão" ) with it's famous Portuguese pattern
  • Sun tan on the beach all day - if you can find a good spot and make sure to observe Brazilian life.
  • Walk along Avenida Atlantico (you will see lots of little beach bars and cariocas drinking beers and even dancing the samba!)
  • Go roller skating, jogging or ride a bicycle along Avenida Atlantico
  • You can take part in beach activities like play beach football or volleyball.
  • Why not have lunch in one of the restaurants under tents on the sidewalk or inside .. I prefer outside! So much to see! Like the beautiful women in their tiny bikinis
  • Shopping in the tourist markets - we got a lovely bowl here.
  • Make sure and check out the beautiful sand sculptures.
  • If you go for Old Year's Night you are in for a treat - there are millions of people there celebrating and enjoying a spectacular fireworks show! 
Read more about it and see lovely photos of Copacabana, Brazil

Okay guys have a great day!

2010 FIFA World Cup

Hello World, 

I am sorry I have not had the time to blog this week. I know you are probably saying to yourself, "What you mean you don't have time - you don't work!" Well you are wrong! This earning money online business is time consuming! Also I have my TESOL course and my last assignment was really hard - I'm serious! Today I've been reading things that I kept putting off for so long. Right now I am thinking of doing a movie with pictures of my husband and me and our friends, showing our relationship over the last 7 years as a token of our one year wedding anniversary in a few days. I'm still thinking about it and spent some time sorting through the millions of photos I have on my computer from 2003 to now but it takes time and I don't know if I should forget about it or spend the time and just do it. What do you think? 

Anyways so last week a friend of mine shared a video on facebook of Akon's song "Oh Africa" and I ended up really liking it and listening to it all of Friday, then on the weekend and to be honest all this week as well. I like it - it's upbeat and makes you want to play football! The 2010 FIFA World Cup is going to be soon in South Africa from the 11th June to the 11th July. I remember when the Soca Warriors made it to the World Cup last time it was hosted. Boy our country was in a festive mood for the entire time even though we did not make it to far - ah heck at least we made it to the World Cup! We celebrated when the Soca Warriors (from Trinidad & Tobago) drew one of the matches. We reacted like we won the whole damn World Cup. Unfortunately T&T is not in the World Cup this year so I decided to back Brazil since I am living in the people's country! I know my husband will choose to back another team - for the competition! It's fun!

Well if you want to hear Akon's song and see Pepsi's cool ad for the upcoming 2010 World Cup you can check it out here. You will also see the video for K'naan song which is also cool! His own is used by Coca Cola! Go figure! They have their own little competition going on as usual. 

Well folks, I hope you enjoy it and also I would love if someone sent me another song for me to obsess over so that I can get Akon out of my head. Before I go, let me share this - my younger brother found that the Pepsi ad was lame because he was expecting to see good football footwork / moves. Nevertheless I enjoyed it! Very creative!

K back to reading! 
Have a great evening.
