2014, its the perfect blend of new and old.

This has been such a crazy year as it saw lots of changes the biggest being the move to Cali. Still can't believe that its almost been a year, sometimes it seems like it was only yesterday that we arrived. The most amazing thing about the move has been the growth of friends and faith. This year alone i have seen Esa 3 times, which i believe may be a record and I have talked to my dad more. I have found a church that i really feel like i can call home. I have an amazing circle of friends out here and i am still able to keep in close contact with my east coast friends and family. 

here are some highlights of the past year :
Good-bye FL!
Hello Cali!

East Coast on the West Coast!

New and old friends!

Gals Night!

Lots of late night Game nights!

a visitor all the way from the East Coast!

Its been a great year, looking forward to the new Adventures in

That Christmas feeling

So excited for over the weekend and with the help of Cali mum and dad we got the lights on the tree and a tree skirt! Next weekend we should be getting the ornaments and tree topper! Also excited for Chloe Ianto decided on her own to prose by the tree long enough for a pic to be taken. She hates having her pic taken, she must be feeling the christmas spirit too!

In other Christmas news Esa should be here soon! As each day goes by its starting to feel more and more like the Holidays!

Its starting to look like Christmas!

Christmas time is my fav time of year, love all the good cheer and family time! This year is going to be different but still fun! This will be my first Christmas in Cali and while i am looking forward to starting new traditions with Froggy i am going to be missing my FL family! Its going to be funny not have Christmas Eve movie marathon with K and P. Its going to be funny not going and see the Christmas lights with Linds and having our Christmas at Estreet, or seeing Mouse and Monkey open there gifts! But thankful there will be pics and videos!

I am looking forward to seeing how Christmas is done Cali style and it will be fun for E will be in the same state seeing her Family, so if it all works out she and I shall get to see each other! Nelly and his gal will be coming up from LA over Christmas weekend and its always fun when they are in town for the Cali Family is complete. It will also be fun to see what the Cali Crew does. This should be a Christmas to remember!

over a year later, 11 years total

Our first Pic! 

Our First Star Wars Celebration (C3)

College graduation 

Our engagement Pic! 
Our Wedding! 

cant believe that froggy and i have been married for over a year and i have now know each other for 11 years. what is even harder to believe is that its also been 11 years since i almost took my life! if it had not been for froggy i would not be here today and i am so very thankful for him. For i find myself looking back and thinking on all the things i would have missed out on if not for him. I would never have meet Mouse and Monkey and all of my amazing friends. I am better now, sure i have my moments but i think that is normal for everyone. I just dont let them bring me down anymore because Life is about living and there is so much to live for!

We are forever friends manly because she knows way too much about me and I here. She is one of the reason that living in FL was such fun! No that i am a Cali Gal, i miss our adventurers. The following are just a few of our crazy adventures!

did not know i was missing something till i found it!

What an amazing day today has been! Went to church with some great friends and felt like i was home again. Did not realize how much i was missing Church until i came back! its just what i needed as my heart was feeling heavy. The songs were wonderful and the message helped clear my head, it was like it was written for what i was dealing with.

God has brought the right peeps into my life just as i needed them the most! I have the most amazing friends out here in Cali! Sure i miss my FL fam and the Fab Four, but its nice having peeps here who understand and have the same beliefs.

We also now have a new Sunday tradition that makes all parties happy! With Church, Football, friends and laughter how can anything beat that?

This year has been such an amazing adventure so far and its not even over yet, sure its had its fare share of ups and downs but that is life for you cant have the good with out the bad!

two weeks

so much to say about the past two weeks and so much more exciting news coming in the next few weeks. But i just don't have the words, It was great spending time with family, meeting new friends and hanging with old. It was many late nights of laughter and love.

Hard to believe next month froggy and I will be having our very first wedding anniversary. What an amazing year this has been. it really does just feel like it was yesterday that we said "I Do"!

It been a fun few days for my cousin Chris has been staying with us. I have not seen him for a few years and it was great getting caught up! He is about to start a really fun road trip of traveling across the US and Canada! We are looking forward to seeing his pics and hearing his adventures on the road!

In other news, today is Chloe Ianto's life day! she is now an old lady! It just seems like yesturday i was making the trip to GA, to spend time with PC! Little did i know that night would change my life by bring Chloe Ianto into it! Its also amazing seeing how much has changed for i am now a married woman living in CA! sometime i miss PC and wish that our friendship would have lasted but i now understand why they broke away! Sure it hurt at the time but i still have the memories and of course the greatest cat ever in Chloe Ianto, who really might be a dog taped inside a cats body!

Speaking of friends its amazing how many East Coast peeps are on the West Coast this week! It really is a small world!

I had more to say but as is m habit words have now failed> hopefully they will come back soon!

New Doctor, New Who

Missy could be Clara from when she was in the doctors time stream. She could be Amy or even River. She could be the Master or someone just as evil. It's going to be fun watching the series unfold. P-Caps is just wonderful as the doctor! It feels like The Doctor is really back! It was fun with Chris. David, and Matt! But something was missing. With P-Caps it's like the doctor has gotten his soul back.    I am kindda digging the whole theme of seeing/not seeing. I also liked the fact in P-Caps eps it seemed like Moffat was telling the fangirls how it was going to be, so that they could take it or leave it!

Do you dream of Wil Wheaton?

because i did last night! I had this crazy dream that Froggy and I decided for our one year wedding anniversary to have my dream Disney wedding. Somehow 
Wil Wheaton
ends up crashing our wedding as we (the wedding party) are taking a ride/pictures on space mountain. Wil ends up using the ride to take us into space for real and while we are in space we meet up with the Doctor! It was such a fun dream and part of me really wished that it was not a dream for after our trip with Wil and the Doctor; Froggy became a Whovian!

9 years!

hard to believe but its true! So Much has happened and so much has stayed the same! Lost of changes and with each new change, this one is getting used to it! For a long time ago this one was very scared and afraid of change! now of days she is like bring it on for it may still be scary but its also apart of life, so here is to the next 9 years and beyond!

Saturday, August 9, 2014


So tonight has shown me just how lucky I am. Froggy and I started this journey almost 11 years ago and while we have had our ups and downs, but each one has been an amazing step on this road called life. It has helped us grow and get here, to where we are today! Celebrating our first year of marriage in a few short months, the first of many more to come!    The friendships here in cali have been one of the most welcoming things ever, that and the love and kindness of frogg's   family. Both of these have made the move to Cali a breeze and continue to do so. It feels like I have been apart of the group. While I miss my Fab Four, with the love of the Cali Crew I don't feel so alone!

I remember when...

My nights were filled with chats that lasted till the early mornings light all thanks to my crazy online friends who have made the jump from online to real life. When was the kool place to hang.  when A Sailor Moon Romance was the biggest and best Sailor Moon site on the net.

Sometimes i find myself lurking on the sites of the old days and remember the crazy times and how we all came to be a family.

Someimes i miss the crazy times of yester years, but i am happy about the here and now! About how far we have all come and the fact that we are still family!

Here is too the next 100 years!

TDF update!

After stage 13 Richie Porte has dropped down to 16th overall!

Vincenzo Nibal is still wearing yellow (i think that he is going to ride into Paris wearing Yellow)

Thursday, July 17, 2014


sometime i feel like i am just floating though life, like i am not really here and yet i am here. Sometimes i feel like no one can see me and yet i can see everyone at once! Sometimes i feel like its my goal to be there/here for others and yet only a few ever return the fav for me! Sometimes i feel like i am the only one that cares and yet i know that others care! I know that life is fulled with ups and downs, because you cant have the good without the bad and the bad without the good. there is nothing wrong with that for that is how the world works, but the great thing about this world is the people that we surround  ourselfs with.

Its the people that we let in and trust to see our realselfs! Its our friends and family, its the peeps that make us who we are. Its a crazy world but if we make the best of it, its not so crazy!

Breaking TDF Update!

During stage 10 another big name had to abandon the tour! Do to a fractured tibia Alberto Contador (who rides for team Tinkoff-Saxon) is out.  At the end of stage 10 Richie Porte has moved into 2nd overall and Vincenzo Nibal is back to wearing Yellow!

This has been the most crazy Tour in many years, so exciting and sad the same-time and its only the start of week two. This is really is going to be a race to Paris!

week one of Le Tour De France or as i am calling it Le Tour de Fracas!

This has been such a crazy first week in the Tour de France (TDF for short) for it seems like that have been some big crashes everyday of the tour so far and a lot of the big names are abandoning like flies! Which is why i have taking to calling it Le Tour de Fracas!

After he was injured in three big falls during Stages four and five 2013 defending champion Chris Froome ( rides for UCI ProTeam Team Sky.) was forced to abandoned the Tour. Turns out that Chris has fractures to his left wrist and right hand. Another big name had a big crash during stage one, Mark Cavendish (rides for UCI ProTeam Omega Pharma-Quick Step.) crashed right at the end of stage one and did enough damage to his right shoulder that surgery was needed! During  stages six Chris Froome's teammate Xabier Zandio had to abandoned the Tour as well, leaving team Sky from 9 members down to 7! Lucky for all there is no team time trail this year, other wise Team Sky would be in big trouble. With Chris Froome down and out, Richie Porte is the new leader of Team Sky! At the end of Stage Eight Richie Porte was sitting pretty in 3rd. After Stage Nine Richie Porte drops down to 9th overall! There has been others who have been hurt or abandoned but i am just reporting on Team Sky!

After Stage One -Marcel Kittel (rides for Giant-Shimano) was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Two -Vincenzo Nibal (rides for Astana) was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Three-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Four-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Five-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Six-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Seven-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Eight-Vincenzo Nibal was wearing Yellow!
After Stage Nine- Tony Gallopin (rides for Lotto-Belisol) was wearing Yellow!

For great Stage By Stage coverage!

in between

Seems like everything is in the in-between stages of things!

Today was an odd day for it felt like a normal work day except for the fact that it was Saturday and i normal have Saturdays off! It has totally thrown me for a loop, for after work i apart me wanted to go out and yet the other just wanted to chill!

Its been a very long yet fun week, got to meet some like minded souls last night and we have a gals night out in the works! Its nice feeling like on already fits in and does not have to feel like walking on eggshells at the start of meeting new peeps (hope that makes sense)!

Seems like everyone from the family is having celebration withdrawals because we have passed the year mark until Celebration-7! its nice to think that we are now closer to Celebration-7, sure we still have about 10 months to go!

This week i have learned that its nice having people who understand the geeky things in life and who are ok with just being themselves! No need to pretend, its nice letting true colors shine on!

feeling loved!

With it being 4th of July weekend, I been feeling very loved and wanted! Its been the small things, like Prinny sending vids of her amazing firework shows and wanting me to come visit her next July 4th! Its been the mini chats with my Big Sis! Its been the text from Esa letting me know that even if we are far apart we are still together! Its been Linds planning what fun things we will be doing once i make the trip home! Its been the phone Calls from AWH keeping me in the loop and not making it seem like i am so far away from the office!

Its been the fun times with the Cali family and the FL family when they were out for there visit! It was nice seeing two of my worlds getting along so well! I know that its been hard for the FL family to see me spread my wings and fly but its been the best thing for me! I am so much happier here and it just feels right! Sure i miss the FL family i would be crazy not too, but its the normal kind of missing (hope that makes sense)! I am having fun being me, having people like me for me and not for who they think that i am or because of who my mom and dad are! I am me and only me!

I sometimes find it funny that my bestes friends live so far away from each other! Esa is in SC, Prinny is  in MI, Cindy-Lou is in TX, and Linds is in FL! I call these gals my Fab 4 because they are Fabulous and we have been by each others side for the good times and the not so good times! They helped make my Wedding to Froggy a dream come true! One of my fav memories from my Sister's Margo's Wedding was the night before the big she and Ktoe made there way to my room! We talked until we fell asleep holding hands! That moment meant so much because it seemed to say that no matter what happened we would always be sisters! I wanted to have a moment like that before I said I do, but it was not to be the case with my sisters, instead i had an a great night with the Fab 4 and my brother P-man! It might not been the same as Margo's wedding but it meant just as much because not matter where life takes us I know and I hope that they know we will always have each others back because that is what friends are for!

What it comes down too is no matter the distance if you make the time, you are not that far apart from the ones who love! I love that even though its be ages, i feel like with my friends and family we can always pick up right where we left off as if its been only hours instead of the days, that is the sign of everlasting love and friendship!

"There are days when those gray skies
Make you blue
Each forward step you take
You fall back by two
You've been hit by some hard knocks
You just can't stand
Feeling like Alice felt
In Wonderland
Let me be the one to lend a hand
Call my name and I'll be there
There's nothing like the laughter that we share
Whenever you need someone
Or a shoulder to lean on
Call my name and I'll be there
And when life's going your way
Just like a breeze
It's a kite-flying kind of day
Above the trees
Together we'll be making memories
As this world turns us around
We hang on to what we've found
A treasure we both need
I will go that extra mile
To give you back that certain smile
That you've given me
I'll answer every time and anywhere
Call my name and I'll be there
Call my name and I'll be there
Call my name
Call my name
I'll be there

No words!

Its funny to think how close we all have become as a family, even funnier to think that most of us have never meet in person. But when something happens that leaves us for a loss at words, we come together as FAMILY! we feel as a family and we try our best to be there for one another as a family! Because when we loss one of our own, we all feel it and that is what happened today! A member of the Cantina went on to that great big star in the sky! It was a shock to all, but most importantly to his family! Who was very kind to inform us of the passing! We have all been at loss for words because its time like this when he would be the one giving us words. Now its up to us to carry on his legacy and sent our thoughts and prayers to his family!

I fee so lucky to have meet some of my closer online friends and have them make the move from online to real life. Sure there are a few that i have not yet meet but i do know what they sound like and that seems closer enough! My online family knows me as well if not better in some case as my real life family! Because at the end of the day what it all comes down to is the fact that we are family!

As we grow older we will loss more of us but that is a fact of life for  Genesis3:19b " for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." 

'I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee' (Ezekiel 27:18). 

so happy!

We are finally in the new apartment and life is good, still have to unpack the books but that is all that is left. The fun thing is that one of my dear friends here is also a neighbor!

Chloe Ianto is enjoying the fact that she does not need a collar and leash to enjoy the backyard! She is very happy to be back to the only cat in the house!

11 Years of friends, 30 life days!

Tomorrow (or today if you are reading this on 5/22/14) is my Esa's life day! She is rather she likes it or not turning 30! But as i been saying for years, the number does not matter for you are only as old as you feel!

I have the honor of knowing her for the past 11 years and looking forward to the net 90! We have been though it all together, the Ups and downs of college, Life and everything else! We have made a pact to be there for each when and so far so good! Sure we may not talk or see each other as much but we are only a phone call away or we can always stalk each other on Facebook! The reason why our friendship has survived is because it takes two to tango and we are both committed to this dance!

I hope that you my dear Esa's have an awesome, wonderfully, amazing, purple unicorn life day! because you are an awesome amazing, wonderful, lady! I am so lucky to have in my life not only as one of my besties, but also as a sister because that is what we are my dear! Family weather you like it or not :P! Thank you for being you and never stop being you because i am not sure if i would like you any other way!

Love and Miss you! Sending you lots of Huggles!
