I'm Back!

Yippee! No more traveling for me until September. I am tired but home and I have so much to share! My next post will be my 100th post! Oh My Gosh! Who knew I had so much to talk about - OK, I am sure no one is surprised that I have so much to talk about.

Anyway, I did pick up a couple of cool things in San Francisco while I was there last weekend (it seems like it has been several weeks but it really wasn't) and I can't wait to give them away... see my next post, sometime this week, maybe tonight, to learn how YOU can win!

A couple of pictures to  brighten up this post, next weekend I'll be catching up with everything... whew!

This is the lovely ride over the Sierra Nevadas

The view from the Michael Mondavi Family Estate Winery - I want this view!

The Fremont Diner
Best diner I have ever been too!

Check back soon for my 100th post celebration!

It's my Birthday...

Today is my birthday and it's been pretty amazing. My oldest and dearest friend and her hubby came to to visit me - she and I were born on the same day in the same hospital and we've been good friends since we were twelve, my amazing co-workers took me out for Thai food for lunch and made me a Zombie-Faerie birthday cake (I'll post some pictures next week) and to top it off, I am heading to San Francisco with my friend, her hubby and my boyfriend for a fun weekend - yay! I am feeling good, finally recharged and after next week (I am off to Las Vegas for business again on Wednesday) I'll be back home and back to as normal as my life gets - which, thankfully, is pretty normal.

Occasionally someone will tell me that they don't celebrate birthdays anymore because they are getting old- I figure celebrating another year of life is much better than the alternative and I am happy to have lived 46 amazing years so far and I really hope I get another 46 or so  healthy, happy years to come!

Have a great night, I'll catch you all later! Hopefully I'll finish my Pagan Blog Project post tonight, if not, I'll catch up next week =D

Reminder- my 100th post is coming soon (only 2 more posts!!) and I'll be brining back something special from San Francisco to celebrate with.

I've Noticed a Pattern...

Stay Calm!

This has been one crazy week and when I realized that I haven't even looked into my studio in over 10 days I took a look at things and I began to notice a pattern in my life. Obviously I have a lot going on, work, kids, art, friends, more work... and I love that! Every now and then (about once every 6-8 weeks) I seem to take a non-scheduled break, I just stop everything, except work of course, and once I come out of my haze I feel guilty because I have all sorts of things I am working on and I feel as though I've dropped the ball.

This time I've decided to think that I didn't drop the ball, I just suspended it for a while. Yes, I will be late with a few of the posts that I planned but that is one of the reasons I am part of Blogging Without Obligation! Right??

Anyway, I am here, still alive and kicking. I have a couple of posts that I will be completing this week, one of which will be my 100th post! Wowsa! I am feeling pretty good about that. My birthday is Thursday and I will be heading to San Francisco with one of my best friends and our significant others! I can't wait.

Stay tuned, I have something fun planned for my 100th post, I'm heading to San Francisco (which means Chinatown to me) during the Year of the Dragon... a give-away is a must!
