Another Christmas Over…

Good morning everyone!!! Did you all have a nice Christmas? They come and go so fast! Mine was really really good..lots of great food, drinks, family and friends. It doesn’t get much better than that! Christmas Eve we always celebrate a family members birthday. We had some delicious Italian food and wine. YUM!! I hosted Christmas at my house this year, we had 15 people all together. We decided to do something different for food, we did a BBQ theme and everything was super delish. It was a bit chilly that day so we played some card games inside and had the outside heater and fire-pit going strong. I feel so blessed to have such amazing family and friends in my life. I am so grateful not only this time of the year, but ALL year and every day. I never take anything OR anyone for granted. Life can change in an instant! I am excited for 2017!! I always love the beginning of the new year even though 2016 was good to me. It’s nice to set some new personal goals and business goals as well. πŸ™‚

Wishing you all an awesome 2017!!! Here are a few pics to share. I will write more soon. πŸ˜‰

Ready for Christmas????

Hey hey…happy Tuesday!! I am getting so much done this morning, I have been waking up soooo early lately. Oh the joys of getting old. lol! πŸ˜‰ Seriously I start waking up around 4:30, but can’t seem to get out of bed until at least 5:00. It’s nice because I get so much accomplished with no interruptions. Are you all ready for Christmas?? I am NOT! I still need to pick up a few gifts/card and groceries. I hopefully will do that tomorrow. So let’s see….what have I been doing??? Hmmm not much excitement really. Been trying to stay as healthy as I can be through this holiday season. Working out and eating healthy…even drinking/making lots of juices. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I bought a new FitBit and love it!! It is kind of big so I was not sure how I would sleep in it. I LOVE tracking my sleep…it’s so interesting.

Our weather is up and down…today 74 and sunny. Nice!! It’s supposed to be a little colder with maybe rain coming…but that’s ok. Change is good. I saw on the news how cold and snowy it is across the country…BRRR! Makes me happy to be in Arizona!! πŸ™‚

Buzz has been shooting a TON lately so he can take some time off for Christmas and Vegas in January. Yay! πŸ˜‰ Rachele Richey was just in town shooting and we had a lot of fun together. What a hottie…she is just as sweet! πŸ˜‰ Good stuff coming!!!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! I hope you are enjoying your holiday season with your loved ones!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here are a few pics I have posted to twitter lately. I will write more soon.

Kisses,

~Hello December~

CymDpKMUUAAMXaC

Hey hey everyone!! Good morning!! I can’t believe it’s the last month of 2016. Yikes! I got my tree up and I am in the holiday spirit. I am just getting Christmas Eve together so now I can move on to Christmas Day. I LOVE this time of the year. I ventured out yesterday and did some shopping…the mall was not too busy, but I went early. I hate crowds…the rest I will do online. πŸ™‚ Our weather has been perfect for the holiday season…60’s during the day and 40’s at night. I see some 70’s are even coming. I am just happy to finally wear some cute winter clothes. It’s a girl thing…I know. πŸ˜‰ Not much new going on with me…just working and playing like always. Life is good!! I want to try and plan a few trips, but it seems like it is not happening for one reason or another. I WILL be going to Vegas in January for the show..that’s always a fun time. I am thinking I need a nature fix…I would take that any day over Vegas. Not quite the party girl…am I? I honestly never really was.

I hope you are all enjoying your holiday season so far!! Nothing is more important than family and friends. πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful Thursday! I will write more soon. I haven’t been taking many pictures lately…I will try and take more to share! πŸ™‚

Kisses,

Notice my cat under the tree. He has behaved so far, but has knocked a few ornaments off the tree.

Stocking up for the holidays. πŸ™‚ Can NEVER have too much wine!

Perfect weather for walking my dogs. πŸ™‚

Yay winter has finally arrived in Arizona!! :) :) :) :)

Good morning!! I am sitting in my office watching the sunrise as I type this. It’s so pretty!! I love mornings…I love starting a new day. Be sure to take time and appreciate the little things!! πŸ™‚ It is finally winter in the desert… Woohoo! We got a lot of snow in the mountains. Looks like I will be planning a trip to play soon. Buzz and I fired up the heater and fire-pit the last few evenings. Nothing like sitting around a fire and sipping some wine. My dog Mia snuggles up next to me in my chair and we cuddle up in a blanket. πŸ™‚ She is a little sad her furry friends left Tuesday evening. πŸ™ She seemed a little depressed yesterday. Buzz and I took her for a long walk yesterday and gave her a bone…she seems better today. We had a lot of fun with the dogs, but I’m sure they are happy to be home again!! Three weeks is a long time!! I think the longest I have been away from my dogs was 10 days…ugh! I hated that…the worst part of traveling for me is missing my babies.

I wanted to put my tree up yesterday, but didn’t get the chance. I will try for today. I am hosting Christmas this year…can’t wait!! πŸ™‚

Breakfast is ready now so I must go… I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband that cooks me breakfast every morning. πŸ˜‰ Awwwww he is the best! Wishing you all a happy hump day and great week ahead!!!

Kisses,
Rach

Another Birthday…

Good morning!! πŸ™‚ It’s a busy morning, but I wanted to stop by and say HELLO!! I have been getting emails saying that I don’t post to my blog enough anymore. πŸ™ I am sorry….life is just very busy for me right now. I LOVE November for many reasons, but I won’t be disappointed to see December. Things should slow down for me…whew!! I am still dog sitting and the dogs are such little angels, so well behaved…BUT it’s still a lot more work.

I had a great birthday with Buzz. It was a rainy, chilly day so spending it in nature was out of the question. Instead I just wanted to have some delicious lunch and a few martinis…which I did. πŸ˜‰ I found a new one I like, it’s cucumber and basil. Trying to keep things healthy over here. HAHA! I am..but yesterday I blew it. I even had a big slice of carrot cake. (once again trying to keep it healthy) hehe, I am funny today. Speaking of eating…I am excited for Thanksgiving!!!! I will be of course fighting the crazy crowds tomorrow at the grocery store, nothing like waiting until the last minute. The snowbirds are back in town and everything is so much busier now. Oh..and the traffic. Blah! Yesterday on my way out the freeway was closed due to an accident. Buzz and I got lucky enough to get off the freeway and take side streets before it got too crowded. I later found out a 26 year old was killed …there were a total of 3 accidents in a row and over 20 cars involved. I kept thinking to myself …I am out celebrating my birthday and these poor people lives are a mess …some destroyed. Ugh! Make sure to enjoy every day because you never know when it’s your last.

I hope you all have a wonderful turkey day with family and friends!!! I am so thankful for so many things..including you all!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here are a few pics from yesterday. I have been so bad at taking pics lately. I will try and take more.

Kisses,
Rach

Time Flies!!

Hey Hey everyone…happy weekend. Wow..I didn’t realized I haven’t posted to my blog for awhile now. (since October) OOPS!! Time flies! πŸ˜‰ I have been busy with life!!! All is really good!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoyed your Veterans Day!! A big thank you for serving our country and protecting our freedoms!! πŸ™‚ Buzz and I celebrated our 19th Anniversary on the 1st. Seriously…where does time go? We have been together 24 years and an amazing 24 it has been!! πŸ™‚ I always tell him every year gets better and I didn’t think that was even possible. I really believe this “adult” world has made us closer….we have mastered the trust and communication with each other. Those in the adult business can relate to what I am saying. I am looking forward to next year…I need to plan something really special for the big 20. Maybe renew our vows?? πŸ˜‰

I have to admit I am sooooooooo happy this election is OVER!!!! I am not going to talk about it because my opinion is just that..MY opinion! Sometimes you need to stay away from all the negative BS and crap on social media and of course TV too. I HATE drama, I don’t do it and I believe I am happier and healthier person because of it. I refuse to be sucked in to all the negativity. Speaking of healthy, I have been on a huge health kick lately and it’s incredible how good I feel, not just physically, but mentally. “You are what you eat”….TRUE!!! I am sure I will find some time for a taco soon. lol! Moderation really is key in life!

I am dog sitting now for two special little (BIG) doggies!! πŸ™‚ They are so well behaved and they are having so much fun playing. It is a lot of work having 4 dogs and 1 cat, but well worth the joy they bring. They make me so happy. Buzz is already talking about maybe getting another dog after they leave. Hmmm not sure about that????? I kind of enjoy the 2 dogs and 1 cat…at least for now.

Not a lot of excitement has been going on with me, but chopping away at my to-do list feels really nice. I am looking forward to my birthday on the 21st. πŸ™‚ I don’t know why I am looking forward to being a year older. hehe! I do like bdays!! I would like to spend it out in nature again this year. That is what makes me happy! Yay Thanksgiving is the same week as my bday…my favoriteΒ  holiday. Can’t wait!!

I promise to write more often..so sorry. Have a wonderful weekend!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Kisses,
Rach
