Just Give Me A Reason

Tweet This
I love the way Pink and Nate Ruess, lead singer from Fun, harmonize together on "Just Give Me A Reason." This is one powerful video, and not just because Pink's making out with her Hubby, Carey Hart, in it :p .....

I've been doing a lot of hiking in Point Lobos lately, so you'll be seeing a lot of pictures from there. I seem to have more time for taking photos than writing these days........

Worry About Yourself!

Tweet This

I. Love. This.

And not just because when I hear:

"Mom, Gio isn't getting ready for school.".


"Vinny didn't have to do his chores."

My reply is always:

"Worry about yourself."

I LOVE Trestles

Tweet This
I rode my bike to Trestles everyday except for one day due to Mother Nature and her band of Gale Force Winds. The waves were so fun and THERAPEUTIC! I really needed that.

Thank you Trestles!

Also, thank you roommates for waiting for me to come back from surfing each day while we were on vacation. Y'all are patient!

Legoland Again!

Tweet This
The great thing about Legoland is kids play, while parents wait IN LINE. Wait a second? Actually the lines were not too long on either of the days we visited Legoland.
Somehow on this ride, Gio and Hubby managed to splash Vinny and I with their boat. I'm sure it was no accident and that they had it all planned out.....
But it's ok, they were punished accordingly for getting us wet!
While Gio and Hubby were in shackles, Vinny and I enjoyed Happy Hour with some lego mini figures.
The boys in the bubble.

9 a.m. Leaving for San Clemente!

Internet, it's Spring Break. Miracuously, we left for San Clemente at 9 a.m. and arrived by 4 p.m. THE SAME DAY!

We checked into our room, and we were on the beach and surfing TRESTLES by 6 p.m. THE SAME DAY!


Or should I say Wahoo? Since that's where we ended up for dinner after surfing TRESTLES, my favorite surf spot in California.

The Dalai Lizard

Tweet This

Gio's science teacher has the coolest lizard.

Lizzy The Science Lizard calmly sits on the teacher's shoulder during the lesson, which is amazingly exciting for the kids.

"She's going to jump off your shoulder!" shout the kids, every 5 seconds...........

Lizzy The Lizard let's the kids hold her and pet her. She's so patient with them. I've never been more impressed with a lizard.

She's Lizzy the Dalai Lizard.
