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 clip...here 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 :)



I just picked up my new car!!!

Hi guys!  I just picked up the new car I won on Let's Make a Deal.







The dealership was so nice!!!  They let me upgrade (I had to pay the difference) to the automatic.  I got to pick the color and I got a 2012!!!  I had originally won a 2011 but I was hoping they wouldn't have any left and I guess I was right! 

The car I was driving was a 1996 Ford Explorer with 187,000+ miles that couldn't even pass the CA smog test.  We won the car a couple days after I learned it wouldn't pass the test (so I would have had to get a new one anyway). 

I have NEVER had a new car in my life.  This one only had 14 miles when I picked it up.  I feel so spoiled. 

Anyway, thanks so much for checking it out guys!

    Thanks Nikko, Gail and Carrie :) You know Gail...it's funny you ask. DH said, "Let's go to Vegas tomorrow." I told him he was crazy and I needed like a week notice to go to Vegas. So, we decided to go to the beach instead and he wanted to take the old car so he wouldn't get sand in the new one :)
