Jacked.


A few weeks ago I went to get in my car to go to work and I noticed my glove compartment was open....and my middle console.....AND my trunk was slightly popped open! We were broken into. There was no visible damage like a window being broken but after we looked a little more our door handle was all messed up. I am so glad my husband decided to drive me to work that day and he was right there investigating it all. The night before we had attended our friends graduation ceremony from the sheriffs academy and I was THISCLOSE to leaving our fancy camera under my sweater in the front seat THANK GOODNESS I made more room in my hands and took it up. We looked everywhere and we didn't immediately notice anything missing...so we my husband chose not to file a police report and we drove to work.

I know it might seem silly but I really felt violated! Like the seat I was in so was some creepy loser looking and touching all of MY things in MY car that I work hard for. My emotions turned from scared to sad to downright MAD like what the heck?! Now I have to fix my door handle and you got ZERO from me and my car. Bravo! Right On! Good Job! jackass.

Can you tell I am still pretty peeved!? I know it could be worse and all that jazz but this was bad for me, AND the next day when I went to get ready for the day I realized they stole my makeup bag! Used make up woo hoo hope you got tons of $$ for used mascara and eye shadow >:( There was tons more but the husband took me shopping to replenish my collection but he couldn't understand my frustration, I was annoyed because it takes YEARS to find good colors and combos and having mascara by Covergirl and foundation by Maybelline am I right or am I right ladies!? Well I have my basics and I am working on the rest :)

Shake Rattle n Roll


Earthquakes!!!!

You guys southern California is movin'! After a 3.6 we had a 5.1 and 100 aftershocks good lord almighty I know this is small and most people have blizzards, hurricanes, and much much more but this is the west coast let us have this!

I am in Downey which is about 10 miles from the epicenter of all the shakin' and turns out I am a tad rusty on earthquake preparedness, my last BIG one was in 1994 and I was 9! and all I remember is running outside and into our car.... so last night I was making some toast in my pjs and all of a sudden everything starts going crazy and its not stopping SO my 1st instinct was to RUN out of my apartment! (FYI the news said a million times that is what you DON'T do) But my husband calmly told me to have a seat, so I did and it stopped. We still got fully dressed just in case there was anything else coming and it did, another 3ish but we stayed put just waiting to see what was next. Luckily nothing significant happened and I was able to sleep some.

This morning another 3ish hit at 9am and a 4ish at 2pm seriously I can't remember, in my adult life, experiencing this kind of movement. Everyone is saying the BIG one is coming and we are overdue but the husband thinks the shakes are good and could be relieving the pressure on the faults and he would be more worried if we weren't going through this.

Thank goodness no deaths or major injuries have been reported, just a lot of broken plates, bottles, and the like. Some water mains broke and something with gas but its all back under control and I am hoping it stays this way! Just in case we did go buy some flashlights and water so we can be somewhat prepared!!

Stay safe SoCal :)

Staycation {kinda}


I looked up the definition of staycation and technically it means staying local within driving distance AND sleeping in your own bed, the weekend before last I went 5 hours away from home and stayed the night AND then 2 hours away and stayed the night there, not a vacation per say but I wasn't home thus making it a Staycation {kinda} haha

{Road Trip Survival Kit}

Our first stop was Phoenix, Arizona! and guys most of you don't know but I was a very late drivers license bloomer {read HERE} and I loathe driving like REALLY, I can do it when I forced to like you know to work and such, but extra curricular no thanks! Well my husband always does the driving and road trips are especially tough on him, I never understood why since I only drive like 45 minutes max ANYWHERE. So for this trip I decided to take on the drive there! Downey to Phoenix....and let me tell you 5+ hours on the road was BRUTAL throw in some strong gusts and little dirt tornadoes ooohhh my goodness I was so done but oh so proud and I have a new appreciation for my husband always doing the driving :)

We were there for our 2nd annual Dodgers spring training trip and it did not disappoint! WELL except that we lost :( But it was a split squad and doesn't count. ;)




Oh oh AND I finally got to go to Cracker Barrel! All these years in blog land and I have seen a countless number of posts mentioning this place and now I know why! Delicious. So fresh and just YUM and I loved the country store attached to the restaurant so cute.

Also Arizona has the BEST convenience store I have EVER seen! Like nothing I have ever seen. Good Job. QT=QuikTrip. California its YOUR turn ;)

Stay Tuned for Part 2....San Diego, Ca!
