Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)

Happy Hour-What R U Havin' Today?

I hope you will consider entering :)

Also, I thought since it is TGIF today I'll play bartender...What'll it be for you this afternoon?

Don't forget....if you buy your bartender a drink you'll get great service and strong I'll start with an amaretto sour please...

So, Soupers...what'll it be for you this afternoon?

    haha at Chris below-- I have never actually tried Absinthe-- ok does one really get hallucinations with it? As for me, nope, don't drink either But I have been getting my dose of liquor today, all because of chocolate-- so far, I have had coconut rum and kahlua (am holding back on amaretto right now though) and hmmm I am soo intrigued with this Paradise mango rum liqueur we have here so I am gonna hunt for it one of these days...oh btw coffee jelly with Baileys is really good though ;)...
