***2015 is almost here***

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I can’t believe there are only a few days left in 2014! Wow! Every year just goes faster! I had a nice weekend! I finally made it back to the gym after almost a month! Ugh..that’s terrible!! I am back now and ready to kick it up a notch in 2015. Everyone always wants to get in better shape for the new year. Ha, kind of funny how that happens. I did pretty good this year with eating healthier and working out more, but I can do better! I went out for dinner and drinks Saturday night…it was fun! Yesterday I whipped up one of my favorite spicy Bloody Marys and watched football literally all day. I was sad to see the Arizona Cardinal lose, but I wasn’t surprised. Too many players out for one reason or another. I am still very proud of our team and I have to say I love the new coach! 🙂 It has been chilly here lately…at least for us desert peeps. I have been spending a lot of time around the fire-pit and heater. Brrr! I love sitting outside …it’s so relaxing and peaceful. The dogs and kitty like it too. I had to finally break down and turn on the heat inside my house. It really does feel like winter lately…which is kind of nice! I like change! 🙂 I was invited to a big New Years Eve party and I have decided to go. I NEVER go out that night, but it sounds like a lot of fun. It’s a pajama party so Buzz and I both ordered some fun pj’s yesterday online. Yay! My parents 50 year Anniversary is this coming Friday. Isn’t that crazy? 50 years? Wow..that seems like a long time. BUT Buzz and I have been married 17 years, together 23. Time flies! We are all going out to celebrate! Some fun things happening this week. 🙂 I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!
Kisses,
Rach

 

Just a few random pics from the weekend. 🙂 🙂

 

*A Very Merry Christmas*

Hey Hey everyone…did you all have a nice Christmas? I hope so! Mine was awesome! We have a birthday in the family on the 24th so we celebrate his bday and Christmas Eve both. 🙂 It was fun..we ate a ton of Mexican food!!! We had some cocktails by the fire-pit and enjoyed family time. I am so blessed to have such an amazing family! Christmas day was great as well, Buzz and I started our afternoon off with a mimosa. Yum!! I squeezed oranges which made them taste even better. We all decided on Italian food for dinner and it was delish! We sat outside and played Scrabble. I haven’t played that in years, but it was a lot of fun! Today I am just catching up on work and going to relax a bit after all that celebrating. I am a bit sleepy. I hope you all enjoy your weekend! Make it great!

Kisses,

Animal Lover :)

Hey Hey everyone…Happy Weekend!! 😉  I had such a busy week, I am ready to unwind a little bit. I am done with my work for the day so I am off to run some errands. I am officially 100 percent ready for Christmas! Yay! I have all gifts bought and food ready to prepare. We are doing Mexican food on Christmas Eve and Italian on Christmas Day. Changing things up a bit …we are all bored of the traditional meal. I am in the holiday spirit, I whipped up some cookies the other night while jamming to some Christmas music. 🙂 Only thing I haven’t done this year is buy Eggnog. Not sure why? I am off to an ugly sweater party tonight…it’s going to be fun! Of course I will take pics. Since I got my new Iphone the camera works SO much better than my last one. I am constantly taking pics of my furry babies and I thought I would share some. 🙂 I love animals..I love them all. They bring so much joy to my life, I can’t even describe it. All you animal lovers know what I am talking about. 🙂 🙂 I enjoy feeding the birds …and Rocky (my cat) loves to watch them. It is so cute, he will sit and watch them for hours. He is in indoor cat…he only goes outside if Buzz or I hold him. If he escaped my house he wouldn’t make it long. We have bobcats and coyotes that cruise my neighborhood. Yikes! Well I am off now…I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! ENJOY!

Chewing up my ornaments 🙁

Busted! Caught in the action!

Hehe, playing with my computer screen.

Big boy never leaves my side! 🙂 He sleeps by my feet all in my office.

Aww just look at that face!

He loves running errands with me.

No that’s not her Jameson, she doesn’t drink. 😉

Snuggled up with me outside by the heater.

Enjoying some bone chewing last night by the fire pit.

He visits me time to time. Go Cardinals 😉

This guy is way too big ..he thinks he is a hummingbird. ha

CyberMonday!

Good morning!! 🙂 I hope you all had a great weekend!! I am bummed the Arizona Cardinals lost yesterday…a bad game! I don’t think they are going to make it to the SuperBowl this year…that would have been cool since it’s here in AZ. I do think the new coach is doing a good job! Even though I watched a few hours of football yesterday I still accomplished a lot! I was a busy bee this weekend..I even put my Christmas tree up! Yay! 😉 It’s yet another beautiful day in the desert! I heard rain and cooler temps are coming which is ok. I have a busy work day then I am off to the gym and to get a massage. Ahhh!! I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Kisses,
Rach

BFF’s..these 2 are inseparable! Too cute!

~Happy Thanksgiving~

Good morning!! A big happy turkey day to everyone!! I LOVE THANKSGIVING!! I don’t need a holiday to remind me how blessed I am…I know that every day. Never take anything for granted and always always be thankful for what you have! Enjoy the small things! I am off to spend the day with family…going to 2 different houses which will be fun!! Lots of food, cocktails, games, football and laughs! 🙂 🙂 I had such a great vacation in Cancun… 7 nights of pure relaxation! No phone or computer… now that’s a real vacation! It was one of the best trips ever and we got to share the fun with some awesome friends! I will post some photos after I gather them all together, K? It’s always nice coming home…I missed my furry babies so much. I am so fortunate that my parents come to my house to dog/cat sit 🙂 We sat out by the fire-pit the other night and snuggled up with our babies. I think they missed us too! 😉 Home Sweet Home! It is so beautiful in the desert right now…80’s today and 70’s coming. Nice!! It was rainy in Cancun the first few days, but then sunny the rest of the time. Omg I am not used to the humidity! My skin loved it… but my hair did not. I prefer dry to humid any day. Here are a few pics I took …I will post more.

Wishing you all the best holiday! 🙂

Kisses,
Rach

~Columbus Day~

Good morning everyone! Today is a holiday so I am hoping you all get to enjoy your Monday! 🙂 Did you have a nice weekend?? Mine had some good and bad both. Friday I got my hair done, added some highlights to it. I like it! 🙂 I got a migraine while I was at the hair salon. Oh what a nightmare that was! My vision was all messed up, if you have had one you know what I am talking about. The headache didn’t hit until I got home so that was the good part. I ended up in bed ALL day. My headache didn’t go away until 8:00 Friday night. I had plans with friends that I had to cancel. I was bummed. I am lucky though because I only get maybe 2 a year. I have never had one last that long. Ugh! It sucked! I spent all day Saturday doing chores around my house. I am a neat freak.. I actually like cleaning. Weird huh? Saturday night I cooked a big Italian meal for Buzz and I. Yum! It was delicious and yes very fattening. Ha! Yesterday I enjoyed a cookout, some cocktails and football. Woohoo the Cardinals won! 🙂 🙂 Have I told you that I love this time of the year? hehe! This is a busy work week, but this weekend is going to be FUN! Buzz’s birthday is Saturday and that is a perfect start to a great weekend ahead. Here are a few pics I have taken lately. Have a wonderful day!!! Get out and enjoy life!

Kisses,

Rach
