How to be alone

I have seen this video a million times in the past few years and I just love it.  I love it when I am single and when I am in a relationship.  It reminds me that life is too beautiful to not ENJOY it.  Most of the time I wonder what others may be thinking, but the truth of the matter is they are probably not even paying attention to what I am doing.  Live life...I find that when I do decide to branch out and do something out of my usual routine that I am happier than just sitting around doing nothing.   I love being alive!

Friend Making Monday- ABC's in 2013


I have never participated in this before, but I read them each week over at and I thought I would give it a whirl this week (even though I am a day late).  I used to blog religiously years ago and had lots of followers and really enjoyed it....but I stopped doing it because life got in the way.  I am going to try to write more because I remember how much fun I had before!

a) In 2001, I spent 5 weeks in Australia, I loved every minute of it!

b) I have been dating my boyfriend for 1.5 years now.  He is my best friend.

c) I have THREE cats...Cricket, Spider and Chewie and I adore them!

d) I've always wanted a dog, but am not sure I am up for the responsibility.

e) I know I need to exercise to lose weight, but I do not like it at all.

f) People always describe me as friendly.  I try to be anyway.... :-)

g) My favorite color is green.

h) I am generally a happy person.

i) I do not know what people did before the Internet.  I am not sure if it makes us smarter or dumber, but i sure love it!

j) I have a really sweet nephew named Jack.  He just turned 10!

k) I would like to have a kid someday, but as I get older, I am not sure it will happen. I have mixed feelings about this.

l) I've always been fascinated with love.   Romance and hearts and kisses.  The whole thing!

m) I have moved a LOT in my adult life.  I finally have been in a place for awhile and am digging it.

n) I lived in New Orleans for 10 years and loved it.  I love how people are there.  I left 9 years ago when my ex and i broke up and haven't been back since.  I need to go visit my second home!!

o) I wish organic produce was more the norm.  We don't need all of the toxins and wax on our produce!

p) I crave Port of Call burgers SO much.  It is a little bar in New Orleans that is the devil!  Their drinks and burgers w/stuffed potatoes are to die for!

q) My ex boyfriends name was Que.  Such an odd name.

r) My last name starts with an R.  I hated it for years, but now I think I will be a little sad to get rid of it when ever I get married.

s) I live in Sacramento.  This summer heat KILLS me..... I grew up here, moved away and then returned.

t) I typically like Tall men.

u) A year or so ago, I discovered boy shorts underwear and I can't imagine wearing anything else now.

v) Even though I like alcohol, I tend to think virgin cocktails typically taste better. :-)

w) I feel as if I am obsessed with my weight.  I think about it non stop why can't i be motivated to lose it???   It is a HUGE frustration of mine and am to the point where I am not sure what to do.

x) I am not a fan of x rated movies.  I just have never found porn of interest to me.

y) I am 37 years of age, yet I feel like I am still in my 20's.  Does everyone feel this way?

z) My first date with my boyfriend was at the Sacramento zoo.  We really enjoying visiting zoos whenever possible.  BTW- the zoo is a PERFECT first date place, you can walk & talk and it is EASY to enjoy the date!

Big Willy Style

You tell 'em Will....

Drive In's

So, for the past several months, my boyfriend and I have been going to the drive in's.  I absolutely love it!   We get to see two movies for the matinee price of one and its overall just a fun thing to do.  Last night, we went to see "Snow White and the Huntsmen" on opening night.  BIG mistake.  I guess with the start of summer, our quiet nights at the drive in are most likely over (at least opening night anyway).  I realize that it is a family friendly place, but when parked behind a truck or SUV its damn near impossible to see the screen.  Fortunately, we ended up finding a decent spot after circling around for a bit.  The movie was good, however I do think Kristen Stewart as Snow was completely wrong.  She is too rough for me, definitely not the fairest of them all.

Inspired and no longer waiting

Wow.  It has been awhile since I have written.  It used to be my regular routine and then life happened and my little blog got put on the back burner.   Lots has changed in my life.  I have a wonderful man in my life.  He truly is unlike anyone that I have ever dated.  In fact, he has inspired me to start writing on this blog again.   He created an account and gave me the spark to continue with my account.  Its funny because I have spent most of the day trying to think of a new title for my blog....I had titled it "waiting" years ago for various reasons.  I was a waitress and I also felt like I was waiting for life to begin.  Waiting for a good relationship, a better job, better place to live and generally a better life.   Well.... I am no longer waiting.  I have the sweetest of boyfriends, a pretty damn good apartment and a much better job.  I AM living life.  It just took me awhile to realize that.    I've decided to keep the title "Waiting" because A) I don't think blogger allows the name change without creating a new blog and B) I want to remember where I came from. 

 I think my boyfriend and I have both hit a wall in the health department.  I have struggled for years with my weight and apparently so has he.  I want to do better.  I want to get moving and I want to be healthier.  I want to go to a theme park and not even have to have that horrible feeling of "will i fit?".   It has been sneaking up on me for awhile and it is now time to do something.  We started yesterday with 30 mins of exercise...we walked 1.5 miles.  It was the hottest time of the day, so I was sweating like crazy.  I have many options though....I have a swimming pool and a mini gym in my complex, I can walk or I can Zumba.  I just need to DO IT!  And thats exactly what I intend on doing....
