~Well Hello~

Good morning!! It’s chilly and raining in the desert..I love it!! πŸ™‚ How was your weekend?? Mine was awesome!! We went riding to one of my favorite places in AZ. My parents went with and they had a blast!! It was a beautiful day and we all really enjoyed being out in nature. I cherish quality family time!! πŸ™‚ I feel so blessed to have such an amazing family. Yesterday I relaxed and watched football…I enjoyed pizza and a bloody mary. YUM! Of course wayyyyy too much salt..but it was Sunday Funday. hehe! It was a rainy Sunday afternoon/evening so we decided to heat up the hot tub and jump in for some romantic time. We put up an umbrella and relaxed in the hot bubbles. Ohhh it was so peaceful listening to the rain. I love stuff like that..I appreciate the little things life brings. πŸ™‚ So today is back to work, then off to the gym and get a massage. Not too terrible for a Monday. Right? πŸ™‚ Here are a few pics I took on Saturday. Fun times!! Have a wonderful week ahead!!

Kisses,

Happy Hump Day!

Good morning everyone! It’s a cool rainy morning…very nice. I like πŸ™‚ Buzz and I just got back yesterday from the mountains. We played up in Northern Arizona for 3 days…it was a blast. We rented a cabin and enjoyed some much needed nature!! Our 18 Year Anniversary was on the 1st so we decided to get away from life and not only have fun, but have a romantic get away. It was perfect! The weather was awesome…it is supposed to snow there today. I wish we could have stayed another day to play in the snow, but we had to come home. πŸ™ I am hoping to play in the snow this month or next. πŸ™‚ Here are some pics from our mini vacation. Did you all have a nice Halloween? I can’t believe the holidays are here!!! Where did 2015 go? I am super excited for the new year…lots of changes coming soon as I am very anxious, but very eager too. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. I will write more when I have time. It totally feels like a Monday to me…lots to catch up on.

Woohoo…it’s football season!!

Hey heyΒ  everyone…a big good morning to you all! πŸ™‚ Yay I am happy that football is back!! The Arizona Cardinals won yesterday so that was great! I just love this time of the year..the temps are finally cooling down here in the desert. We are finally back in the 90’s… what a horribly hot summer. Ugh! We had yet another storm roll through last night with lot of thunder and rain. It sucks because 2 of my dogs are so scared that I have to stay awake to keep them calm…needless to say I am a little sleepy today. Might have to get in a cat nap this afternoon. I wonder why most of the storms always hit at night? Weird! Not much new going on with me since I wrote last. Spending lots of time in the pool, cooking out, working out…just loving life really. I am a simple person…a very down to earth person so it doesn’t take much to keep me happy. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I love the little things like sipping coffee on my patio and listening to the birds. Dorky I know. I got my hair done last week and went with a new color. I LOVE it…it is a little darker with auburn highlights. Change is good. πŸ˜‰ I am starting a new diet/workout program today and am super excited. I am in pretty good shape now, but I know I can be in much better. Damn this getting older thing sucks! However I feel great and that is what matters. It’s just a stupid number …right? πŸ˜‰ I saw some friends Friday night that I have not seen in a long time…that was fun!! I took a couple pics but as you can see they totally suck. ha! They adopted a new dog and I had to go meet her. She is around 3 years old and her name is Allie. Sooooo cute and what a sweet dog. Remember to adopt…not shop!!! So many dogs and cats need homes, it breaks my heart to see them get passed up for new puppies. I know adoption is not always an option for everyone and I respect that. I will tell you …they make the best pets! They know you saved them. Alright…enough babble for today. I have a big to-do list so I am off. Have a wonderful Monday loves!

~Happy Monday~

Good morning everyone!! πŸ™‚ I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was great, I am enjoying my summer. (heat and all) I am pretty sure this August has been the hottest one since I have lived here. I am spending a lot of time in the pool with Buzz and my fur babies…been grilling out a lot of delicious food too. I am trying not to eat out as much. I have been working out religiously at the gym again and it feels awesome!! I enjoyed a road trip with my parents this weekend. We took them up North for some goodies. Every summer we pick our own tomatoes right off the vine, they are YUMMMY! We got some other veggies, but they were out of corn. Bummer! I think we will take another trip up there in September…it’s only a little over an hour drive. It was a fun day…we stopped and had lunch at a local brewery. I just love visiting small towns like that. Yesterday my family came over to swim and we made BLT’s. I am thinking of having another one for breaky. hehe! A little kitty made his way into my garage on Friday morning. It was so weird, I left the side door open for him to leave any time he wanted to, but he stayed ALL day. I of course fed him and gave him water, but he wouldn’t let me get close to him. A long story short..we couldn’t leave him in the garage all night, it would have been way too hot. Buzz caught him, put him into my cats crate and he slept in the laundry room. Early Saturday morning we drove him down to the Humane Society and guess what? They told us he has already been neutered and to let him go where we found him. It’s a program called TNR (trap, neuter and return) I was like what? I have never heard of that before. His ear was clipped and he was a feral cat. That would explain why he was soooo not friendly, downright mean. We were just trying to do the right thing and save him. We literally have bobcats that come into our backyard…kind of scary just letting him go. I just love all animals and always want to help them as much as I can. We let him go out our front yard and he ran up the street. Live and learn ..right?

Never a dull moment in my life…which I like. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Hope you have a fabulous Monday. Talk more soon! Here are some pics I wanted to share.

*Happy Monday*

Good morning!! πŸ™‚ I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I wanted to stop by and say hello!! I’m just keeping busy with work and life. Lots going on in my life right now, which is great but oh so scary too. I am not a person that likes change, but change is necessary to grow. Soooo lots of exciting stuff happening and I will share in time. πŸ˜‰ I started my day off on the elliptical, boy that felt good. I usually cardio every day, but not first thing in the morning. I SHOULD do it first thing, but it’s just hard. I want to wake up and sip my coffee first. I am off to do a little shopping today. Yay! I am heading south of the border to Mexico soon and would love to find some new sexy dresses. It’s summer in Arizona and that means it’s HOT HOT HOT…so I have been spending the evenings in the pool with my hunny and furry friends. Mia is the only one that swims now, my other 2 dogs are just getting too old. Makes me sad! Although I do have a swimming kitty. hehe! He is amazing! Off now..I have to work before I can shop. Have a fabulous day!!

Kisses,
