Happy Christmas!!!

This was a Christmas that takes the cake for sure. I had a bumpy road getting here but it was well worth it. My whole family was here to Celebrate, the Christmas Eve celebration at my Grandpa's went spectacularly well, and today? Well, today was simply lovely! The Lord truly is Good. Thank you Jesus for putting on humanity in order to die for my sin. We bless Your name.

sit tight

Well its 2:25 on christmas morning and for some reason i am still wide awake. I just got back from my second batch of christmas festivities and am eager for tomorrows final salutation.
Christmas eve was kind of a rough one. I pretty much spent all day in San Juan sound checking for the evenings worship set. On the way home, driving on the freeway, my Car made a funny noise. Seconds later I had lost all control of the steering wheel. By the grace of God i found my way to the side of the freeway and waited for help. Later i found out a belt on my car fell out causing the power steering to go out.

All is calm. All is bright.

Merry Christmas friends!

Round and round they go

Early November I had promised my nephew Elliott a ride on the train at Crystal Court or the train at Fashion Island. Since either would do we road the one at Crystal Court. Finally, after counting the weeks the day had arrived! Today was Elliott's day and actually proved to be my Niece Caiden's as well.

keeping in theme of the christmas spirit...

Last night the gang and I went to fountain Valley to look at what we thought was going to be a spectacular christmas display. I say this because some of the displays were quite freaky. Dispite the freaky dolls standing on the front lawns and the "missing baby Jesus", the night actually ended quite well. We had fun.

TJ'S ... check


So today i started to eat raw. one of my friends is a trainer and she had been talking about it... sounded interesting so now im doing it. I know i am shocking at least one of you out there. probably Cryn. she is always surprised when i eat something different. hahah! like the one time i had duck or the time i ate vegetarian... for lunch...threw her whole day completely off. ha! moving on...
Breakfast: orange

Lunch: lettuce wrap with and avocado cream sauce,cucumers, tomatoes, and onions... (man. i wish i had sprouts... i need to go to TJ's), dried cranberries, almonds and some other nuts, and alkaline water... KACHOW!

scrap the scraps

Originally I wanted to wrap all of my christmas gifts in newspaper to save money. Good idea, i thought. All i would need to do was make it look somewhat creative, throw a ribbon on it, and wall-ah, cheap wrapping...
so i start wrapping a couple of presents for one person on my list. lick- a- dee -split. Now onto the next person... wait! where's the paper? come to find out. my family no longer subscribes to the newspaper. are you kidding me? Now, I realize the paper is only like 75 Cents, but the whole purpose was to not pay ANYTHING. so i have about 7 gifts wrapped in newspaper and the rest in regular paper... now its time to just get over it.

the lone reed...

For some reason, in the midst of this rain we are having, a loan cigarette somehow found its way home with me. your probably asking yourself, "why is she posting about this?" well... cause I'm bored and honestly I have been having a rough couple of days and blogging makes me happy. The cigarette however never made its way into my life... so to clear up any conjecture, I do not smoke.
