Thanks Luphia!

Luphia of Luphia Loves… tagged me a few weeks ago. I’m a horrible person and have not completed this. Sorry girlie!

Here goes:

What are you wearing now? Skinny jeans, pink top and my fav. matiko boots over my jeans.

How often do you blog? Lately, not so much. This will change.

Who was the last person you hugged? My neighbor who came over for dinner.

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately? My love quotes scarf. I love it!

What’s for dinner? I don’t know the main course, but hopefully some asparagus. For someone who used to hate this veggie, I sure eat it a lot now. I’m making up for lost time!

What’s the last thing you bought? Domino Decor book. The Lil Bee inspired my purchase!

What are you listening to right now? Itunes. Tom Petty, of course!

If you could have any super power, what would it be? I’d be a genie and grant myself a million wishes. I’d go from there.

What is your favorite weather and why? I like to be comfortable, and being comfortable for me is 84 degrees.

What time do you usually get up? Depends on the day, and depends on what time my grandma gets up. If she gets up during the night, I’m up during the night.

What is your most challenging goal right now? Getting things in order. All I need is a chance, I have the skills needed. All I need is a chance, would that be considered a challenge? If so, that’s my goal!

Say something about the person who tagged you? She has an amazing blog, and is a wonderful person. I was on cloud nine when she decided to add me to her blog roll!

If you could have a house- totally paid for, fully furnished-anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? I would want to live near my mom, she’s my bff. I’d also want to make sure I live near Laura, Lindsay, Kim and Melina. They’re the best girls I know…and I miss them 😦 As far as location, how does San Diego sound? Oh and if any small market news stations happen to check out my blog, I’d love to live anywhere I can find a job 🙂




Favorite Vacation Spot: Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada 🙂 Many happy memories from my childhood were spent here, and it’s just one of the greatest, most beautiful places in the world.

I’m Still Here!

Hey all! I’m in the midst of changes, if I get typepad figured out…I have a name, if I don’t, then it’s back to the drawing board! How has your week been? Hope it’s been well. I appreciate everyone putting such thought into these names, they’re all wonderful! My little brain has been ticking, nonstop….trying to figure out which way I should go. Should I take the typepad route? Should I go back to blogger? I’ve been reading articles on how blogger/wordpress can shut you down if you’re promoting your business on their sites. I’m Catholic, it’s Lent…I can’t risk committing  too many sins during this holy time , and lying cannot be one of them. Why do I have to be such an honest soul? In the words of Kevin from The Office, “I’m a textbook over-thinker!”


I couldn’t just post one……

If you were here earlier tonight, you noticed I posted Cannon Rose, well…I was going through my pictures when I noticed that this one just had “post me tonight” all over it!

This photo was taken in my backyard over the summer. If you’ve followed my blog since I was on blogger, you might remember that I mentioned my neighbor, Carl who passed away over the summer. I remember I went exploring around the yard the day after he passed away, trying to make myself relax. This photo was one of the ones I took, and to this day 4 months later, it still puts me at ease just looking at how beautiful, and how fortunate I am to live where I do.

Photo showcased in lowest resolution rather than post it with a watermark. Photo will print at highest resolution.

Two Of A Kind

As many of you know, my mom and I pretty much joined at the hip. We’ve got each others back, and she is just my best-est friend in the entire world. I used to be her favorite daughter, until our precious labrador retriever came into the picture…so sad, so sad. I never realized how much alike we are. For one, I have very strange phobias…elevators and hospitals. Come to find out, she had the same phobias growing up. Today when I was on the phone with her I mentioned that I scared the hell out of myself when I realized that I’m one day going to perish into thin air (pardon but I fear the word d-e-a-t-h). I thought she was going to talk me down and tell me to get over it, when all of a sudden she said “oh no not you too, it’s hereditary.” We are so much alike it’s pitiful. What’s scary is her love for antiques and flowers are rubbing off on me. Granted when she walks into a nursery to check out plants I head inside to check out furniture and such, but I do love photographing them. When I was growing up I always wanted to play with my male cousins and brother. I loved harassing them. She’s the exact same way. We try to play it off like we’re nothing like my grandma, but we’re more like her than we admit. My grandma is trouble…always talking smack and up to no good. She looks so sweet and innocent, but it’s just a cover. I guess you could say the same for us. Oh well, I wouldn’t trade my mom for the world, even though I’ve developed her most frightening quirks and phobias.Thanks a lot MOM!
