Saturday Nine

Saturday 9: Unbreak My Heart (1996)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? I sure am! Hear it here.

This is a fun meme hosted by

1) Songs like this are enduringly popular in part because each of us has had our heart broken. Give us the name of a heartbreaker from your own life.
My heart has been broken many times, how can you live life and not have your heart broken more than once?

2) Toni Braxton sings that "nights are so unkind." What did you do last night?
A quiet evening at home after a very busy day.

3) While this song has Toni singing the blues, in real life her love life is happier. Now aged 50, she's engaged and has been sporting a diamond on her left hand. Do you believe that a bride is ever too old to have a big wedding?
If she wants a big wedding she should have a big wedding!  Age has nothing to with it!

4) Growing up, Toni Braxton's parents severely restricted how much TV their children could watch each day. Ironically, today Toni and her sisters participate in a reality TV show on the WE-TV network, so TV cameras are a big part of their daily adult lives. What TV show do you try not to miss?
I watch the Price is Right every weekday morning!  I love to play along with the games. 

5) She is prone to dry skin and applies Kiehl's Hand Salve to her hands and arms throughout the day. Tell us about a product you're brand loyal to.
We are very loyal to Blue Bell Ice Cream, made right here in Texas.  It is so good.
Took this picture when we visited the Creamery in 2016.

6) Toni admits to being "a bit of a germaphobe," and always maintains a supply of hand sanitizer and wipes. What is always on your shopping list?
Are you ready for this?  
Blue Bell Ice Cream makes it's way to our grocery list often! 

7) While she is not shy about her body, and has worn revealing outfits on the red carpet, Toni Braxton refused a 2011 offer from Hugh Hefner and Playboy to pose nude. What's  the last thing you said "no" to?
I told Merica 'no' when she tried to climb out of her high chair at dinner Thursday night. She looked at me and kept on climbing, her MoM intervened and saved the day much to Merica's dismay.  lol

8) In 1996, the year this song was popular, Mattel introduced a Star Trek Barbie and Ken set. Have you ever fantasized about space travel? 
No, I'll stay here on Earth thank you very much!

9) Random question -- Would you (or did you) invite an ex to your wedding?
No ex's at my wedding...our wedding was a very small family affair.

I only have one picture to share today!  Mr D and I drove down to the ship channel and we saw the biggest ship we've ever seen.  The picture doesn't really show how big it was...but look at how small the tug boats look beside it.

The Port of Houston brings a lot of ship traffic. Where this picture was taken the channel is narrow and we can get very close, it's fun to watch them go by.

Until Next Time
God has already provided what we need to stand for Him and against evil.
