The first time I heard this band, I was hooked. It was this song, I randomly typed Head and Heart in YouTube's search bar. A friend and I were talking about how the head and the heart never agree with each other. It makes sense but, really can be daunting.... Continue reading

Ever hear a whole album that just speaks to your life at that moment in time. Ukulele Songs did that for me. When I ordered the CD and Vinyl I wasn't sure of anything except that I like Eddie Vedder and ukulele's. From the first note and breath of Can't... Continue reading

We woke up yesterday, a bit late. For some time we have had a scheduled field trip of sorts to the LA County Fair. In the past our family has participated in this, although it has been some time. It was foggy, a bit chilly and humid as we scurried... Continue reading

This is a picture of my cousin Rosalie and me. I think she was five and I was four when this glamorous picture was taken. For some reason we were always having pictures made together. She has always been very poised and congenital whereas I have been kind of goofy.... Continue reading

Dexter and Joaquin cleaned the room REALLY good. A great way to start the day. After much coaxing and a knot the size of my chubby fist, Waylon let me braid his hair. He was afraid that I was going to cut off his beautiful brown curly locks. No way... Continue reading

Took Miss Maggie to mail a card she made for her friend Gabi. She was excited and picked out a pretty heart stamp. We took the change and went to buy some foods. As you can see we do enjoy eating beans of all types. Miss Maggie took this of... Continue reading

I am feeling a bit blue. Not entirely sure why. Maybe ending nine years of breastfeeding and still longing for one more baby has left me sad. Maybe because my sister just had a baby and it seems I am being held at bay from speaking to her. Or maybe... Continue reading

All of my posts have been about songs that relate to my life in past and present. This absolutely only brings amazing images into my head. I found several pieces by the artists and this is my favorite so far. That may change. I am thinking a dark star lit... Continue reading

I have purple hair and my Eddie Veddar album came. Am I too old for colorful hair? or too young? I think it's the right hue. I get lots of compliments when I am out with my purple and black hair with red lips. Mostly from drunk cholos and old... Continue reading

Explosions In The Sky is an instrumental group hailing from Texas. In the midst of big hair, big country, big buckles and big hats comes some amazingly moving music. No words are needed to feel what they are trying to convey. It's no wonder that they did the background music... Continue reading

Last night was an amazing night. My friend Anegla and I went to a concert at Pechanga Resort and Casino. The opening act was The David Mayfield Parade and the headliner was none other than The Avett Brothers. All I have to say is that this experience was amazing. I... Continue reading

Keyword is learning. While I do not have any current "full body" pictures I assure you I have a full body. If you were to meet me say, at the local store or at the park you would know I am overweight, curvy and have given birth to five children.... Continue reading
