I want $10 Million a year, for the rest of my life.

Let me get this straight. You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands; and your plan, is to *blackmail* this person?

In the mood- for a southern bbq

Someone was reheating ribs for lunch today. Insert Anchorman:












Anyway, IF it was possible for me to host or attend a bbq (which I clearly can not since I don’t  A. have a grill or B. live in the south anymore) this is what it would look like….

Nail Art- Glitter and Stripes

4th of July manicure is only appropriate for todays posting- 2 days away and a little traveling back to the east coast requires some early planning.

hope it lasts!

just breathe

You may not be able to the control the world, but you can control your breathing. And that alone could change your world.

– Unknown Yoga Instructor

My life has been more stressful lately than ever. And the reasons behind the stress are not exactly things I can control, but they are things I can work on finding solutions for.
Breathing helps….

My Technique

Take 3 very deep breaths.

With each breath keep sucking in just a little more air in- count to 8 seconds.

Then I let it out slowly- counting to 12 seconds.

Wait 5 seconds before next big breath.

That alone changed my day.

I hope this makes you laugh as much as I am- this is no joke. The rain is a dangerous thing out here in LA!

Take shelter everyone!!

Santa is coming!

It’s that time of year again, the BEST time of the year- CHRISTMAS! I belive that a tree lighting is a pretty siginifact way of announcing that Christmas is here, Santa is coming, and most importanlty Jesus‘s Birthday 🙂



Reupholstery 101.2

and the 2nd one…

okay, this one was alittle more difficult. I had to get a very larger upholstery needle to be able to put the buttons on the chair again. And this chair happened to be several decades older than the other I did, so the nails were alitte rusty.
