Beautiful but sad day in Yucaipa, California.

The past few days the weather has been absolutely amazing. Beautiful, sunny warm days and cool nights. Sorry to all my friends who have the cold, snowy weather.

Babygirl1 left this afternoon. I'm getting a little better, not blubbering for long periods of time. It was hard to see her go though.

This morning we took advantage of the beautiful day and took Sophie for a walk. My Sophie is a rescue dog so she is a little neurotic. She doesn't like to walk long distances with just one person, so this week she has had a lot of exercise.

I am now busy getting ready for Costa Rica. I am essentially packed, just need to fine tune. I work tomorrow and leave Monday night on a red eye. I hope to blog some over there but still not sure what kind of free time I have.

Happy weekend!

Hair Pics

Thanks to my blogger friend "J" who was also my SSS, I learned how to send my phone pics to my e-mail!! I love these young kids who know more than us old folks;)

The FOOT of hair all bundled up. Did you know that they have to cut the hair dry?

And after.

isn't she gorgeous? She is such a beautiful girl inside that her outside shines.

Thanks again "J". You are awesome.

Babygirl1 Visits

Babygirl1 is in town for a whole week! She is on track break for teaching for 4 weeks and I have the pleasure to spend one of those weeks with her!! Time is already moving to quickly and before you know it, I'll be crying like a baby when she goes home.

Babygirl1 has been growing her hair out so she can chop it off and donate it to cancer pts. Yesterday was the day and she chopped off a FOOT of hair to donate. Babygirl2 has done so in the past as well. Makes a Mama feel so proud that she has raised such considerate, beautiful women! I wish I had my camera but I only had my phone to snap pics. I need to get a USB cable so I can download them.

I hope everyone has an awesome Tuesday!!!

Mr. J's Birthday

It was my Mister's birthday yesterday. I'm really into birthday celebration. It's the one day you can claim as your own. The one day to celebrate you!

Celebrate we did. I showered him with gifts and helped him shop for furniture. The evening brought a romantic dinner at Mario's Place and some....Fun;)


We started with these divine Scallops. YUM!

Lamb chops for Him, pasta for me. Both absolutely phenomenol!

I sang him Happy Birthday in my best Marilyn Monroe imitation;)

I still don't know where this relationship is going but I do know this.

I am having an amazing time;)

Spa Day

Working waaayyy too much so I have spending money in Costa Rica. I refuse to complain. I have two jobs while others have none!

Spa day was simply Fabulous with a capital F! I'm a Spa virgin and was totally blow away by all the pampering. A little pricey, so this kind of pamper will be rare!


Room service in the morning. Nothing special but Fab coffee. And great friends:)

The beginning of pampering.

I wish my bathroom looked like this!


Lunch time.

Inside the spa.

I fell hard for my massage girl. The things she could do with her hands. Wow.
It was such an awesome day and ended far too quickly.

Just another day with great friends.

Historic Day

I am so excited and emotional .
This Country is in such a mess. I feel loads of sympathy for President Obama as he makes the almost impossible, possible. Please have patience dear friends, as it will get worse before it gets better. But, I think he can turn this Country around.

I have Faith Mr. President!

And, on a funny note:

Virtual shopping

I have always loved to shop. I love to shop for just about anything. My fav though is clothes, shoes, handbags and make-up.

Since I'm a Sex and the City junkie, my fashion knowledge has increased. I buy InStyle regularly and I'm glued to project runway. I also cruise the Internet and drool over fashion.

I'm so loving these items this week.

Roberto Cavalli Sheath dress. $1495.00

Paired with these stunners, Christian Louboutin platform cage sandals: $995.00

And, of course, the purse: Prada jeweled clutch $1295.00

I so need a better job.

Or a Sugar Daddy;)

By the way, I'm going on a little girlfriend getaway to a winery/spa after work tonight. Fun post to follow:)

Busy blunder

It's amazing how little time I have now that I'm dating Mr. J.
He has thrown my blogging hours into minutes:)

Besides my Mister, I started running again which has kicked my ass! Since my sleep time has decreased due to my late night dating and now running, I have been eating my breakfast in the car. This morning, I forgot something in the house, so I sat my cell phone on the center console of my car and ran in the house.

I was enjoying my music, my muffin and was about to drink some soy milk and notice a silver object in my soy milk. WTF!! I admit, it took me about 10 seconds to realize it was my fucking cell phone!!

It's history. My cell phone is on it's way to cell phone heaven.

I'm even more screwed because I don't know most peoples phone numbers. I have them programed in my phone so I never bothered to memorize them. Double F!

So, before I see my Mister, I have to get a new cell phone. UGH, it will probably cost a fortune as I'm not due for up grade.

Triple F!!

No grand babies in my future for a while.

Have a fabulous day!

Viva Las Vegas

Finally, my Las Vegas recap.

The trip started with the fountain show in front of the Bellagio. For those of you who have not seen this show it is acompanied with music. The song this day was "This Kiss." not one of my favorite songs with this water show.

I've seen this water show like a hundred times. Still watch it.

Later that evening, we stopped to have a drink at Parasol in the Wynn hotel. Nice bar on the patio. I had a carnberry mojito and watched the light show.

Dinner at MGM Grand at Diegos.

The chips came with three different salsas. The one on the left was. so. damn. good!!

Entree of Cesaer salad and seafood pot. The seafood pot was pretty spicy but the fish was so fresh.

After dinner, we walked around to take in the sites.

And spotted a woman my age who looked waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy older in something even a woman half her age shouldn't wear.

Gives us cougers a bad name;)

The next day we did some shopping. Vegas has some serious shops that I only drool to shop.

And then it was Saturday night. The night for LOVE!

No photography is allowed but I manage to take a few of stage before and after.

And some in the lobby. This was not prohibited though.

Very good show but a little pricey!

The next day I had breakfast with babygirl1 and hubby at Has House a go go where the food is more that plentyful, the service impecable and the company fabulous!

Babygirl1 and hubby adopted a puppy so I have a grandpuppy:) Pictures later.
We said out goodbyes but not without a picture.
