Our First Earthquake...Rock and Roll!

Wow!! Our first was pretty amazing. Brad and I just could not believe what was happening. Brad described it as feeling like he was "riding a wave". We both wished is had lasted just a little bit longer so we could have really taken it all in. I am sure there will be a next time.
No damage, but a good reminder to make sure our 72 hour kits our stocked.

Happy Halloween...Tell me your all time favorite costume!

Here I am dressed up at Lucy and my friend Paul on the far left
was Ricky Ricardo. He was the perfect Ricky!

Growing up my Mom always made our costumes for us. She would start in September by taking us to the fabric store to pick out a pattern and fabrics. Our basement would be tranformed into a costume making factory and she would work day and night making costumes for all 4 kids!!
It was such a fun time.
The picure above is me as a slice of watermelon. I was in 6th grade. I won the school costume contest for most creative. I am a winner.

p.s That hair is hot dont you think???

The Bachelor...thanks Erin!

If you are a fan of the Bachelor you need to check out this blog.
This lady is too funny. Here is one my favorite quotes from her blog....

"“Come to my house for a pool party.”WHOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!! The scream that could be heard for miles. It didn’t dawn on me, other than the fact that she’s from Crazy Town, why Hillary was making such a huge deal about this date. We find out later that she is the only one who hasn’t seen our Bachelor without a shirt.I guess there is reason to celebrate. I’ll erase one crazy mark by her name."
