    Musings: My Claim to Fame

    I’m like, kinda Insta-famous… Totally kidding. However, this day in age, when a brand reposts, or even comments on your social, it tends to mean something to some. Some people could give a rats ass about this stuff. I can appreciate that. Then you have those, like myself, who enjoy the sentiment from a brand. This could be becuase this is also my line of work. Or part narcassim, or part (social media) culture. Anywho, I staged a fun pizza pic after the madness of our December Girls Night had died down. There was a plethora of chaotic kid-ness going on and I patiently waited to take my staged photo…

    Christmas Advenutre: The Last Day…

    A day with no plans… This felt really nice after going nonstop from Christmas Eve to now. There were only two things that we had planned for the day, L had to have some pool time and J had to watch is beloved Spurs play! That was it…well, and of course I had to go to the beach for at least 5 minutes. In case you missed my sporadic (not back-to-back) posts about our Christmas Adventure, to our visit to the SD Zoo or the Safari Park, feel free to catch up. Something new and fun for our family and I definitely recommend everyone trying it one year, especially if…

    The New Tradition: A Christmas Adventure

    What do you get a kid who has pretty much everything? Okay, none of us are rich (by any means), but the kid literally has most everything she wants or needs. She still has presents that haven’t been opened from her birthday four months ago. I don’t think she needs more presents, well not from us at least. Having a blended family, means you get more than one of every occasion, for the most part – Christmas and Birthday to be exact. Well, that is, unless the parents can throw a joint party together, then you can combine the events. But in our case, we can’t, so we don’t! There…

    Musings: A December to Remember

    When 3 weeks feel like a MONTH! Well, when it’s the Holiday’s I guess time gets magnified and accelerated…or at least in my little world it does. I haven’t checked-in in a while, so here I am. Some good things, some stressful things…but in all, life is good. I don’t really have any complaints — besides the normal ones, so many gifts, so little money 😉 So here goes nothing, just a random spew of musings to keep you amused or annoyed. Adventuring // We are trying something new, really I am forcing it up on our little family. Instead of buying L presents, which she gets an endless supply…

    Rose & Thorn [30]

    It’s still 2014, ladies & gents.. Rose: Our first Christmas.  Thorn: Still feeling the effects of cold/sickness part deux! My 30th Rose & Thorn, I’ve really come to like writing this post. However, without boring you to death with my doings from Wednesday at noon through yesterday night, I’ll just touch on some key moments from my adult version of “winter break” as I like to call it. Christmas was eventful, but in a great way. It went from spending time with J’s family on Christmas eve and coming full circle to visiting his Mom and brother Christmas evening. My family was sandwiched in between those hours. The many Santa’s…

    Where’s the reset button?

    Dramatic, much?!? After nights like last night, I can’t help but sit here and smile. Yes, I have an overwhelming need to hit the reset button of life. But after last night, I am reminded to take life as it comes and remember that maybe slowing down isn’t such a bad thing. I had my alarm set for 5AM to make it to Midtown for a lifting class this AM, but I decided to snooze. I’m still feeling the effects of a sinus infection, but the antibiotics are slowly starting to work their way through my system. I was also feeling the effects of a GN gone perfect and not…
