Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m thankful for you, and laughter. Enjoy… You might be having a redneck thanksgiving if: You’ve ever had Thanksgiving dinner on a Ping-Pong table. Thanksgiving dinner is squirrel and dumplings. You’ve ever re-used a paper plate. If you have a complete set of salad bowls and they all say Cool Whip on the side. If […]

Photo 4…

I took this from Katie’s blog. # Pick the 4th folder on your computer # Pick the 4th Picture # Explain the picture # Tag 4 more peeps (consider yourself tagged if you’d like to participate and are waving your hand frantically and hoping to be picked) This is a picture from Riley’s (my youngest) […]

Hangin' up the heels?

Yesterday gave me pause to think about competing. I was competing in another setting. I went to a Crossfit fundraiser / competition. There were about 6 affiilates represented and we all set up teams of 5 to do a Crossfit benchmark workout called “Fight Gone Bad”. It was created to mimic the metabolic demands of […]

Ok, here you go.

It always seems to take me a couple of days to unwind and get my bearings, oh and eat my way through all the snicker doodles that my loving friends give me for after. Mmmm. Thanks, girls! We had such a blast. We were silly, but got a lot of insight into ourselves, what’s next […]

While you are waiting for comp pics…

here is a lol for ya ladies. I took this from Stef’s blog…hope you don’t mind?. This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to American company Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine products. She really gets rolling after the first paragraph. It’s PC Magazine’s 2007 editors’ choice for best webmail-award-winning letter. Dear […]


Here’s me… No not Dr. Evil. The cat. I’ve shaved my legs, arms etc and I’m offically tan prepped. This is the stuff we do it for. The few days leading up to the actual day are so fun. The diet manipulation (not so healthy for long term) but very interesting to see the body’s […]

Still Learning

I think I’ve said this before, but I’m always amazed at how I continually learn about myself. I think this is so important to realize especially when it comes to human relationships. We must know that we are all still constantly changing and (hopefully) growing and be understanding of that process in each other. One […]

And now back to regular programming…

Wow, who knew there would be so much action on that post? By the way…for those who don’t know, those are all family members who love to share their differences on politics. Well, my husband and I are  usually the only different ones, but that’s ok. It’s what makes us family. How boring if we […]

People do NOT make sense!

Here in California we had a lot of propositions to vote on. One very high profile one was Prop. 8 which would make it impossible for gay couples to marry legally. This was a very publicly campaigned for/against proposition. This one passed. Another prominent proposition was one that would require a 48 hour waiting period […]
