• Hello!

    The 1st quarter of the year was spent hanging out on Sunset Blvd…

    ..at the Rainbow Bar and Grill with friends….We sat at table #3 (I used to work there… lol)

    Rainbow bar and grill

    Drinking flaming margarita’s at El Compadre…

    Cruising Santa Monica Pier…

    Checking out yachts at Redondo Beach..

    BUT Alas, the 1st quarter is over… moving into the 2nd… and this is where I hung out today…

    treadmill

    I was doing a walk/run combo for 40 minutes.

    I also made this beautiful salad. Last minute, I added tumeric (that orangy powder) It is an immaculate cancer preventer and all around amazing thing to add to your diet. (didn’t really change the flavour of the salad either. It was still really good.

    I was sitting on my couch, eating the salad in my own little glory, then I noticed these little raisin packs on my coffee table, I added a pack to the salad as well.. NICE!

    1st quarter, 2nd quarter, whatever quarter, no matter what I always work hard and have my goals in mind. Some quarters I push harder than others, but I never loose sight! Last quarter I took some invaluable voice acting lessons, and also made some discoveries that have changed the way I look at my life, career, etc. I am ready for QUARTER 2! BRING IT ON!! Hope you have big plans for your amazing 2nd quarter of 2012. Let’s make it rock! Because……WE ROCK!!

  • Ahh, hello from CANADA! Our LA extravaganza is over…for now…

    Here is the paradise we left.. This was about 10 steps from our apartment!

    Redondo Beach

    These great pictures are courtesy of Dee when she was visiting…. Ahhh, just look at the view

    Redondo Beach, CA

    The final days in our crammed studio-beach apartment…(Note:Mike rolling his eyes…. lol)

    But alas, it was time to go home… never know where the next adventure will lead..

    On our way out of town, I saw this truck transporting a billion grapefruits.. “Hey! Throw one over heeeeerrreee!

    I think this was in Sacramento. Time to run Painter, so he doesn’t go mad with all the driving…

    Sacremento, CA

    Pretty sun peaking through the clouds..

    This here below is Seattle, almost 24 hours after the Sacramento sun!

    seattle

    As soon as Mike and I crossed the border… we headed for Tim Hortons! (Famous Canadian coffee. It’s “roll up the rim” season, but we both failed to produce wins upon our rollings of the rims….

    Tim Hortons

    Ok, here’s another NON-WIN…. I was in this crazy Japanese store in LA where everything was $1.50. I found these hair elastics… “Sweet!”, I thought..

    Until, I opened the package up, grabbed an elastic to put my hair up… What the?? These are just strings of elastic… Did the machine break down to make it a complete circular elastic band? What am I missing here???

    That’s $1.50 out the window. Oh, I bought a 1.50 hair brush for Painter…. Garbage too! lol

    Painter is happy to be home. Sitting on his ledge on the sofa, looking out at our view. We all forgot how beautiful it is! There’s no place like home…

    Hope all is well in your world! I know I haven’t been posting as regularly as often. But I feel much more settled now that I’m home. I can get into a rhythm/pattern again of being a blogging machine! xoxo

    Lots of love and sunshine from my heart to yours <3

    Then we went to the Rainbow and had an awesome time. When we left, we were talking to the paparazzi for a second. They were waiting for Russel Brand who was apparently on his way to a tattoo shop on Sunset.

    It’s so weird, but I googled it and here’s the shot they got last night…Russel Brand

  • Hello!

    It’s been an exciting weekend thus far. One of my main events was attending WonderCon in Anaheim.

     

    Anaheim

    The event was held at The Anaheim Convention Center, which is right beside DISNEYLAND!!

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    Last time I was at this place was for an even called NAMM (It’s a musicians event)

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    Here’s my crew! Lisa Biggs (girl in middle with pink shirt) is a well known voiceover actress (she’s even voiced on The Simpsons!) She was talking on a panel with other renowned voice artists, teaching people about the world of voice (and mainly animation voice, which is what they do)

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    We had to pick up our tickets down in the bunks of the building!

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    The panel was a smashing success. The room was packed, and as always- I learnt a ton listening to the vets tell their stories and tips and tricks.

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    People were all dressed up, all over the place. The gal on the left wouldn’t let me take her picture until she got out her waitress pen and paper, so she was in character!! lol

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    Once the  panel was done, a huge slew of people went to the front for autographs.

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    This is Rob Paulsen. Voice actor on the panel..

    Rob Paulsen WOndercon

    Here are a few of the characters he’s voiced over the years!!!

    WonderCon, Rob PAulsen

    If I wasn’t in VO, I don’t know if I ever would have gone to WonderCon (not really my thing since I don’t watch anime, cartoons, etc) But I’ve fully embraced it and hope one day I am on a panel!!!

    WonderCon 2012, anaheim

    In other news this weekend, I ran a 5km in Redondo Beach..

    Redondo Beach 5km, March 17, St. Patricks Day

    I took my flip cam and filmed it for ya!!

    The mileage completely messed me up!! It’s a 5km, but they put up MILE markers??? I thought, DAMN, I am getting SLOW! It was kinda funny though cause I thought I had 2.5km left to run and within a couple minutes I was done. I had fun, but I was so messed up with the distance by the MILE markers, in a 5KM race!!!

    How about those crazy shoes I caught a glimpse of? They are “Kangaroo Jumps”. They apparently do something more than just look ridiculous! lol


    Ohhh, Kangaroo Jump classes! ha, anyone ever try these things?

    Kangaroo jumps, crazy bouncy shoes

    Well, we are off to Hollywood this morning. Mike is filming a performance, I am going to help out.

    I hope you had a fun-filled St. Patricks Day! Talk to you soooooooooooooon!

    xoxo
