Alright Stop! Critter Time!

Hello, my lovely friends.

I’ve missed you guys. I swear my day job is trying to kill me. Damn needing-a-paycheck, not-independently-wealthy person that I am, I just can’t bear to look at a computer after the day ends.

But, I did take a little time to download some pics from the camera to show you some of the AMAZING critters the hubby and I saw when we were at the San Diego Zoo and Bearizona. I quite literally have about 3000 pictures to go through (someone please kill me), so there will be more down the road.

I hope you love the furries! XOXOXO

First, the San Diego Zoo.

Tongue-sticky-outty Panda!

I likes ta play the drums in my spare time.

Here’s a little Panda video for your viewing pleasure. Nom nom nom! :)

Oh, and for the most part, whenever you see the camera shake, it’s because I was being assaulted by ants! Little biting bastards!


We did a special behind-the-scenes tour at the Zoo and were able to go into the animals’ habitats…hence the close up pictures with no cages or fences in the way. :)

Can I help you, ma’am? Quit starin’ at me!

Yeah, that’s MY woman. Back off or I’ll maul your ass!

And now to Bearizona!

Mr. Bear was about 3 feet away from our car. Of course, being the rule-breaking mo fo that I am, I had the window down. How’s he supposed to hear me talking to him with the window up? ;)


Owlie-kins was awesome! Last time we met him, he hooked his claws into my hair. Totally kick ass!



I love me some kitties! I love me some kitties!


Okay, so it’s a little blurry. But he’s yawning!


We’re just sleepin’, mama. Leave us alone!


Seriously, this wolf was 2 feet from us. And yes, again, the window was down. I was glad they didn’t throw us out!


Last but not least, here a few of the hubby and me enjoying our mini-vacations. :)

I can think of few things better than being mauled by a million speckle-butted deer!

Who doesn’t love feeding an Okapi?

My baby and me at Mission Beach, California. His only goal for the weekend was to walk on the beach at sunset with me. I sometimes think he truly was grown in a pod just for me. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone.


I love my sweet family

I stumbled across this in my phone and it reminded me of how blessed I’ve been in my life.

Can you believe I have a post with no cuss words? WTF??? ;) ♡♡♡♡

Family Christmas Love Over the Years

Merry Christmas!

This year I put together a video for my mom and sister showing Christmas over the years. My sister said it was her favorite present ever. Nothing could have made me happier!

I’m the little one with the lighter hair. My sister is the older (and beautiful) one with the black hair. Then, of course, is adorable Mommy.

Love you all! Have a wonderful day!

FREE Kindle books for you! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, even if you are a Humbug! ;)
