Culture Shock





Its nice to be out of your element once in a while. I had the pleasure of going to Toms cousins Vietnamese wedding. It was in Little Saigon in Westminster. There were so many people there. I met a lot of Toms family on his moms side. Everyone was very friendly, we all drank lots of wine. The bride looked beautiful, and the entainment, was, ummm, well entertaining. Supposedly, one of the singers is very famous in Vietnam. I took a picture, but due to my excessive alcohol intake, its a tad blurry. I didnt want to insult anyone, so I ate the Jellyfish, and the "thousand year old egg" and the fried scallops and everything else slimy that comes from the ocean. I cant stand slimy textures, so I was forced to down it with tons of red wine. After we left I was happy I went. I would love to take the kids next time to something like this to allow them to see other cultures, and to see where Tom comes from.

Running to the trees


I was going through pictures from Nashville, and I remember this road. It was so isolated and peaceful. Tom and I, along with my grandma found it, and we stopped and got out of the car. I could have spent the whole day there, I have never been so overwhelmed by such beauty before. I never realized I was such a nature girl until I got out of the desert. Maybe I will go back there one day. Maybe the Northwest will be even better, I hope someday I can get there, perhaps even move there...

Ok back to positve thinking


Life is too short to hold grudges, as long as my boys are loved, and taken care of
So for now, Im staying in doors, reading, painting, listening to music and trying to get back into yoga. Oh, And snuggling with Charlie.

Temecula, who knew....







We needed a romantic getaway. I have been with my soul-mate for 3 years now, and it keeps getting better. I love him and had such a wonderful, unforgetable weekend!!!

Getting my baby fix


I love him so much, it doesnt even matter that he smells bad. We have him the next 7 days while his parents are in Carlsbad. It is just a tad challenging keeping him away from Charlie, but so far there have been no fights, just growling, and occasional dirty looks, the usual alpha male bullshit. He is used to sleeping on my dads shoulder. I think he thinks Tom is my dad.
