Thank You Veterans!

Good morning! I woke up early this morning and feeling GREAT! It’s going to be a productive day…lots to do! It’s Veterans Day so of course I want to say thank you to the brave men and women who have and still do protect and defend our country. True heroes!

Buzz and I went to Santa Barbara to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. We had a blast touring wineries…and a wine buzzzzzz at noon is kind of fun! πŸ˜‰ We shopped, ate some amazing food and of course drank! hehe! The AZ Cardinals were playing in one of the sports bars so of course I had to cheer them on. I will always be a fan of my AZ Cards. I would love to go watch a Rams game this season. We didn’t get to hike this trip, but next time. I really like Santa Barbara…it has a small town feel…very peaceful and comforting. I will for sure go back! πŸ™‚

My birthday is in 10 days to be exact. I am still not sure what I want to do. ?? So much to see and do that I don’t know where to start.????

Thanksgiving is right around the corner as well. My favorite holiday!!! We are in the planning stages now…I have to admit it will be strange to celebrate without my family. The first Thanksgiving in …hmmm I don’t know how many years. A LONG TIME! However I have great people in my life to celebrate with. I am so blessed and thankful for all of them!! Family is not always blood!!

See I told you I would post soon! πŸ˜‰ I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be in touch!

Kisses,
Rach

November already????

Where do I start? Yikes..I didn’t realize it’s been so long since I posted. So sorry…life is just so busy now. So much going on all the time!!! I should say life is so different. I guess if you are going to change things…might as well jump in full force and change everything at once. Ha! I hate change…so I must say this move has been a bit hard on me at times. All the comforts I knew are gone! Making a new life here will take time…I am really trying to embrace all this change. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I am a happy person so I realize it’s not where you live that makes you happy…happiness comes from inside. I love love love the weather here, it’s so nice sitting around the heater at night and sleeping with the windows open. I love snuggling up!! I can FINALLY wear my cute winter clothes and boots that I could not wear in AZ much. I know…it’s a girl thing. πŸ˜‰ Yesterday was my 20th Year Anniversary. I can’t believe it….seriously where does the time go ???Β  Buzz and I have been together for 25 years. Crazzzzzy!! It really is a wonderful thing to have found someone that truly makes me happy. He loves me for me…flaws and all. I sit here and try to imagine where we will be in another 20 years. Hmmm, the journey will be awesome, I have no doubt.

The holiday season is here! I went to a fun Halloween party in Hollywood, I never dress up so it was a good time. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and so is my 49th birthday. Did I say 49? Omg! πŸ˜‰

Buzz and I have been trying new restaurants which is kind of fun really. It’s like we are on vacation sometimes. Speaking of vacations we are heading to Santa Barbara soon to go tour some wineries. Can’t wait! We will be making a trip back to AZ as soon as our house closes. It’s supposed to in Dec, fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

We joined a new gym and it’s amazing. It is comparable to the one in Arizona …of course double the price. Damn stuff is so expensive here. One of my complaints …along with the traffic. I suppose there are good and bad things about every city.

Well I must go now, a busy busy Thursday. I will try and write more often, K? I hope you all have a fabulous day! Here are a few pics I have taken recently. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Kisses,
Rach

Happy Friday

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday! I am getting some work done and then off to do a little shopping later. πŸ™‚ There are so many malls here, I don’t know where to start. lol! Life has been busy for me …sorry I am not writing as much as I want to. I am hoping things normalize and slow down a bit. Moving to another state is a lot of work, not only for personal life, but business life too. Whew! I need a vacation! I do have some fun things planned coming soon…Buzz’s birthday is this month, our 20th Anniversary is Nov 1st and then my birthday. Wow, time flies! Just think Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it.

I had my first star sighting the other day when I was in Venice. I saw Stephen Baldwin…he was laughing taking pics. Venice is such a cool place. We shopped, had lunch and walked the beach. It was such a beautiful day. We also went to Malibu this week and went hiking. We took Mia and she had a blast! We went to a yummy Mexican restaurant and enjoyed delicious food and margaritas. I love Malibu! I can’t wait for life to slow a bit so I can get out and see more of what CA has to offer. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I am off now…I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Just remember life is short so get out and enjoy it as much as you can!!! So terribly sad what happened in Las Vegas. This world is a crazy place with so many nuts! Be safe everyone!

Kisses,
Rach

Good Morning! :)

Hey hey ….good morning everyone! πŸ™‚ It’s a beautiful morning in CA! I have my office windows open soaking it all up. I was out yesterday and it was 93 degrees! Yikes! It actually felt hotter because of the humidity. Everyone is saying I brought the heat from AZ with me. hehe! πŸ˜‰ At least it is cooling down in the 80’s and 70’s now. Yay! My kind of weather. I can definitely see why people want to live here. It’s gorgeous and there is so much to see and do. We have been getting out a little bit more to explore. I met up with friends on Sunday for brunch and we went to an amazing restaurant with such a pretty view. I love that kind of thing! πŸ™‚ It’s the small things that make me happy! Life is too short.

I will write more soon, I have a really busy day ahead! Have a fab Tuesday!

Kisses,
Rach

Hello September!!!!

Good afternoon!! I have to admit I am happy to see a new month!! August was exhausting!!! Don’t get me wrong, it was a good month, but so busy. I haven’t been that drained in a long time, if ever! I knew moving would be stressful… I am just so happy I am feeling more like myself every day. It is an adjustment that’s for sure. I am not one to think the grass is greener. That is not why we moved to CA. We moved for several reasons, but mostly because we wanted change. I do feel myself missing some things about AZ. I suppose that is normal, right? I mean my family is there, but the funny thing is I talk to my family more now than when I lived there. I seriously miss my gym!!! The one I signed up for sucks! They have a million locations all over, but they are so shitty!! The one I originally signed up with is the nicest one for sure. I have been trying different locations and they are horrible. Old, dark and dirty! Good thing I didn’t sign a contract so I can leave anytime. I will be searching for a new gym sooner than later. That is important to me. πŸ™‚

I went to my first party..Yay! Hustler launched their new vodka. It was a fun time…and the vodka was good of course!! πŸ˜‰

It was a lot of fun hanging out in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. Now that my life is starting to be more “normal” Buzz and I can go venture out and see more of what CA has to offer. It is super hot here lately, I honestly feel like I am back in AZ. I think today is the last day of this heat. I hope! I didn’t move here to have the same hot temps as AZ.

I totally forgot it’s a holiday weekend. I need to get some stuff done around the house, but I will try and plan some swim/ cookout time too. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ My dog Tony died a year ago on the 3rd. Ugh, I miss him so much. πŸ™ I think back to a year ago and how so many things have changed. Life is crazy, isn’t it? It’s so very short so go out and do what makes you happy!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead!

Kisses,
Rach

Six Flags Fun!

Hey Hey everyone…I am getting back into the swing of things. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Still not 100 percent unpacked and organized, but getting there. We took the past few days off…Sunday we went to Saddle Ranch at Universal Studios. YUM! I love that place, the one in Scottsdale AZ closed years ago. I want to go visit Universal Studios again, but I am waiting for my parents to come visit us. I think they would have a great time there. They haven’t spent much time in CA so I am planningΒ  some fun things while they visit. Monday we went to Six Flags with the guys and had a blast!! It was a perfect day…we only waited in 1 line and the weather was awesome!!! πŸ™‚ I walked over 18,000 steps yesterday and my body got a little beat up on the rides…I feel it today. I could use a foot massage! πŸ˜‰

We are joining a new gym today, it’s time to get back! I have lost over 10 pounds in this move…it’s pretty crazy because I haven’t eaten the healthiest. Lots of fast food and UberEats. Yuk! I am done with that! The kitchen in this house is really nice and we just bought a new grill so I am ready to get back into my healthy lifestyle. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here are some pics I took yesterday!! I will write more soon. Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!

Kisses,

Rach
