  • Hey! How are you????

    I woke up today, wrote in my journal, sat at the computer, got some good news about some gigs coming up and I decided I wanted to take today OFF!

    Of course I have a mountain of things to do, but they say, “When you’re too busy to take a break, that’s when you need it the most.”

    ME: “Hey Mike, can we go to the states right now?”

    Mike: “What? Look at the list of stuff to do today?”

    ME: “Ya, well we have to go to Walmart today anyway, so let’s just jump in the truck right now, and go get what we need in the states, it’s gonna be cheaper anyway and we can do our work tonight.”

    Mike: “Only if we can go to Chihuahuas”

    ME: “Heck ya!”

    Kissed the pup goodbye and away we went!

    First stop, Chiuhuahua’s. An AMAZING Mexican joint in Ferndale, WA. (Here’s our last trip there.)

    We always share interesting, dynamic conversation…..

    AREEEBA!

    chihuahuas, Ferndale, mexican

    Next stop….Target….it always hit’s the spot….(OMG, did I just create their new jingle? “Target, it always hits the spot” Or should it be “always hits the mark” What do you think??

    Target, Bellingham

    We converted our Walmart list into a Target list. Something got lost in translation, but I think for the better.

    target, bellingham

    I got a few goodies, including this cute wallet. Mix Tape. I got it because it reminded me of Butch Walker’s song, “Mixed Tape”.

    Here’s the song I LOVE. My band Paperboy Jack even did a cover of it.

    Here’s the infamous picture of my former drummer Amanda, and I …with Butch Walker backstage in Nashville!

    Now, back to my shop today…. hand soap….very important….smells good too. Bath and Body Works.

    The best thing about the day is coming back home to this little munchkin. (we bought him some toys too. He is going crazy for them right now)

    Tomorrow it will be a full day of voicing, and getting caught up on some stuff, as well as a Raw Food class I’m going to at Whole Foods…

    Hope you had a great day! Can’t wait to talk again!

  • Hey!!

    Here is a glimpse at our day

    After I did makeup for Ravy from the Bombay Brow Bar, Mike and I packed up and headed for the border…

    Holiday Cheer


    Happy Christmas!

    How’d it all go??? Was Santa good to you?

    My Christmas has been very different, (not being with my brothers, etc) but my mom and I have been having a good time!

    Our journey started when I picked her up at the Vancouver airport, OH ya….her plane was 2 hours late!

    I was so bored, wandering around the airport. I did however discover some random ways to pass time while you are waiting for someone on a delayed flight at YVR.

    First off, these escalators are in a class of there own. I felt like Will Farrell in ELF riding them. They go super duper snail slow, (to conserve energy) and then as soon as you step on them, they speed up like crazy and take you for a ride.

    Everyone in the food court was staring at me going up and down a few times…

    Then I found a cute pond…

    So I took out a penny and made a wish:)

    Then I saw these 2 trees, right beside each other- Was the decorator to lazy to separate them a bit? There was soo much room in the airport and these guys were side by side

    Maybe they are best friends and don’t want to be separated….like me and mike…here is my separation anxiety face for my best friend

    Just like 2 inseparable Christmas Trees… (except we are separated on Christmas for the second year in a row :(

    Next up at the YVR…pretty decorations….

    Snow flakes, trees…and some dude who looks lost….

    Finally Dar showed up and at 1am, we hit the road and B- lined it for the USA…

    We went to Bellingham. We stayed at the Best Western, we shopped, went for yummy Mexican, hung out in the hot tub, watched 27 dresses…had a really great time….. I love hanging out with my momma.

    She stops for any kind of casino type games…. SPIN THE WHEEL at Old Navy!

    Hee hee, she’s cute…

    Oh, and also on the trip… I DYED MY HAIR BLONDE!!

    (My bangs are to tad too short, (my fault, I told her to make em a bit shorter…they will grow…)

    BUT my hair stylist Ashley was sooo rad..

    Vancouver Girls, I’m telling ya, take a day trip to Bellingham and see Ashely at www.silhouettessalonspa.com. For a FULL foil AND cut it was $120 including tax. She is a doll and VERY good at blonde…..

    Mom and I are off to Christmas dinner, so I will write more tomorrow, I just wanted to say hi and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Sending you and your family soooo much love and light……
