Saturday 9

It's Saturday 9 and I have heard this song. ~shock! shock!~ And, I like it too.  Lets see what kind of questions came out of this song.

Saturday 9: Unbreak My Heart (1996)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

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.

Well, it's a very long story, much to long to tell, but Hubby broke my heart 2-3 years before we were even thinking about marriage.  Well, before he was thinking about it.~smile~  It really wasn't intentional on his part but I was young and immature and he had no idea how badly I would be hurt.  But, it all worked out in due time and that was only about 50 years ago.  Yikes, that is a very long time ago!

2) Toni Braxton sings that "nights are so unkind." What did you do last night?
We met up with friends at a local restaurant to celebrate one of our "groupies" birthday.  We always have a good time and it's especially fun when we get to celebrate another birthday.

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?
Well, that's up to the bride and I don't think age really has anything to do with the size of the wedding.  I do think that often weddings have gone "over the top."  

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'm not a big TV watcher but I do really enjoy The Voice and do try not to miss it.  I always have the DVR set but most of the time I watch it "real time."

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.

It would be CeraVe!  I've been using it from head to toe for 4-5 years and it is just the best at fighting dry skin.  I highly recommend it!

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?

Dasani Purified Water, 16.9 Fl Oz, 24 Count
Dasani water is ALWAYS on my shopping list.  I drink at least 4 of the 16.9 oz. bottles a day and often 5. I find that I just will not drink that amount of water out of a glass, or container.  It's just the easiest way to keep track of the amount of water I drink daily.  And, I've tried refilling the empty bottles with tap water and it.just.does.not.taste.the.same! So, I treat myself to this great water daily.

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?
Humm,all I can think of is a jacket I saw in Chicos this past week.  I resisted the temptation to buy it because I simply did not need it.  I'm trying to learn to say NO to more of that type of want.  Other than that, I can't remember. 
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? 
There is nothing about space travel that interests me.

9) Random question -- Would you (or did you) invite an ex to your wedding?

I have never had an ex and can just about guarantee I never  will.    I think it's hard to say what you would or wouldn't do unless you are in that situation.

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I'm glad you and your friends celebrate birthdays. I fuss over everyone's. As I get older, my friends say, "Oh, it's not a big deal." Yes, it is!

    1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy. What’s app contact : +44 7520 636249‬

  2. I love reading your answers! We, too, have a couples' group and celebrate birthdays (monthly) and only exchange cards over dinner.

    I am now watching The Office on Netflix and discovered that it is quite hysterical.

    I hope you have a wonderful, blessed weekend. xo Diana

  3. I couldn't really answer the last question, either. Birthdays should be celebrated - like the entire month!

  4. Super fun, I do like that song and I happen to love that you’ve never had an ex, that love found you early and held on tight! Had so much fun showing off my pineapple goodness! We’re your ears burning? I was gushing over your Southern goodness and Clancy’s shows, the PW visit, etc! Hugs to you my precious!

  5. I love celebrating birthdays! How wonderful!
    I have heard great things about CereVe and I sill haven't tried it! You are the second to mention it in this meme. I need to try it. Thanks for mentioning it! Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

  6. I need to be better about #7 not impulse shopping.

  7. Dasani water is always on my list, too {{smiles}} I have tried several brands of water and Dasani is my tastes to pure and clean.

    Delightful post, my friend. Hugs!

  8. I found someone else who loves CeraVe products!! I sure enjoyed reading your answers to today's Saturday 9! I think all of us said a bride could have whatever kind of wedding she wants! Happy Saturday!

  9. My grandmother used a cream all her life OLAY ... she looked 50 at 70 ... I am so very sure it was because of her religious use of that cream. Have a great weekend fellow southerner.

  10. Like you, Lea, there is nothing about space travel that interests me. I don't mind watching movies about space travel, but the thought of something going wrong and being stuck up there is a terrifying thought to me.

  11. I have learned to say no also when shopping. I need to clear my closets of old clothes I don’t wear and then I might treat myself. I think expensive weddings have gotten out of hand. You can have a nice wedding on a small budget with some work. Thankfully I plan on staying with my Hubby forever❤️ Enjoy your day dear friend. Hugs


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
