I finally did it! For the first time in my life!!

Ok so it's not the first time any more, it's now been a dozen or so times as it has taken me months to get around to sharing. But every time I do it I still get excited that I can take all of this ...

 and do this to it......

That's right, I finally learned how to French braid my hair! Only took 30 years LOL That was my very first attempt up there. It was like 4:00 am and I had the bright idea to look up French braid videos on Youtube (why had I not thought to do this before?).

Attempt number two.....

In middle school a couple of friends tried to teach me on their hair and on dolls hair but for some reason it just never clicked. I can braid, I know the mechanics of a French braid, but the two just never came together for me.

Attempt number three (sorry the pics are really bad)...

 I always thought It was so weird that I couldn't do this one normal, everyone-knows-how-to-do thing with my hair. Especially since I was always so girly. 

But no more! My braids might be really loose at the base, and there might be bumps at the top, but I CAN FRENCH BRAID MY OWN HAIR!!!! =D

Just a Quickie

This is just a quickie post to show off my fur-babies

That's PJ on the left and Pooka on the right. They were watching our mouthy squarel, and this was right before Pooka hopped up the fence after him. She never hopped the fence till she chased him up a tree a couple of months ago. I have pictures of the squarel feasting at one of my bird feeders but they are on another computer. I'll try to remember to move them over to this one.

My girls are beautiful but alas I'm using them to try and spark a bit of a blogging bug in me. I have a couple of posts in mind (one from the first week of July) but I just haven't gotten myself to do them. Fingers crossed this works, but if not at least we can ogle my girls ;D

On Monday, December 5, 2011 I Turned ............


I'm not sure how I feel about this, but here are come pictures I found that might help explain it.

Well ... lets start with the obvious:

 No, I didn't burn the house down. Kinda hard to do that when there was no birthday cake.


 Yup ain't that the truth:

I really wish this was how I feel:


It made me giggle:




 I should feel like this about turning 30:

I really believed that my body was going to give out or start falling apart when I turned 30.

I've heard this before and I'm kinda curious to find out what I learn.

In all honesty I know this is what I need to do:

Meh, we'll see.

I'm so EXCITED, I can't wait!

Fourth Season Production
Cameron Mackintosh’s Spectacular New Production
Les Misérables
The New 25th Anniversary Production

I'm going to see it tomorrow today at the Ahmanson Theater in Downtown Las Angeles. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to see this since Junior High!! A little weird I know, My bestfriend/neighbor's older sister used to sing the songs from Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera all the time. She was awesome!!! In high school I got to see Phantom at the Pantages Theater with the French club but never had the opportunity to see Les Miserables until now =)
Guess that means I should got to bed, it's 2 in the morning and it starts at 2 in the afternoon lol 

This was supposed to go out at 2 in the morning but Blogger was on the fritz - surprise surprise. I made it to bed at 2:30 am and was woken up at 9am by my upstairs neighbor getting his sink snaked. Damn that was loud! Its gonna be a long day - wish me luck!

Well I'm off to start getting dolled up .... where did that Spackle go? lol

I mean't to post this a couple of weeks ago....

I am soooo totally not a cook and so I rarely do it. The few times I do cook it doesn't usually turn out all that good, buuuuuutttt ....

My Shepard's Pie turned out GREAT! A little bland but still good.

The layers are: whole wheat tortillas, ground beef with corn, mashed potatos, melted cheese and topped with baccon.

MMMMMMmmmmmmMMMMMMMmmmmm! =D

Everything changes ... Except

Best Friends! I live in California and I try to make it out to Arizona at least once a year to visit my best friend for at least a 3-day weekend, preferably for a week. This year I went the first week of April and stayed for 7 days. I had such a wonderful time and by my 4th or 5th day there it kinda hit me. Our lives have changed consistently over the years and taken different directions. We talk on the phone every few months, almost never e-mail, text a bit here and there, and yet here I am sitting on her couch (my bed) with my laptop in my lap (like I am now) and it feels completely normal. Like this is an everyday thing, not a I haven't seen you in just over a year and I flew from another state to see you. Just any old day, hanging out on our computers. Everything changes except Best Friends =D

She hates having her picture taken and would kill me if I found one to post. So, here is Charlie (aka Stinky) her ferret I gave her for your birthday last year.
