My Heritage DNA

Posted on November 6, 2017 at 4:15 PM

So recently, I've been getting into family history and genealogy.  It's really interesting to see where one comes from.  Well, I went ahead and paid the $69 or whatever it was for a DNA test.  It was mostly just for fun.  Where does my blood tell me that I'm from?  I fully expected it to say English and Scottish, maybe a dash of Native American and German, as this is what I've been told I am all my life.

Although, the results are similar to this, ...

Been A While

Posted on September 25, 2017 at 1:05 PM

Well, I guess it's been a while since I made an entry!

I left a job where I was underappreciated and undervalued and found a new job I LOVE in Education.  I just passed my one year anniversary with the District and I could not be happier.

Earlier this year, I was able to purchase a home, and this is a HUGE thing, if you've ever seen the market in Southern California.

I've done several more runDisney events since my Tink weekend in 2014.  I've done at least 2/year s...

Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend

Posted on January 16, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Starting today at 2:00, I will be heading down to Anaheim for my very first 10K!

My weekend starts out at the Health Expo at the Disneyland Hotel and Packet Pickup for the Never Land 5K and the Tinker Bell 10K.  My mom and I will be doing the 5K together tomorrow morning and then I'm out to conquer the 10K on my own Saturday morning.

I'm excited, but very nervous especially because I've just come through the 2014 H1N1 Flu Strain.  Before this I was more excited than nerv...

Life Themes

Posted on December 18, 2013 at 12:50 AM

So in my life, I have noticed that life has themes, you know like life lessons that you should probably learn.  If you pay attention, you might notice that themes keep popping up in  your life also... or perhaps it's just me.

My current theme is about when something doesn't seem good, there is a silver lining.  Watching Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, there was a theme with the two episodes and Daniel sang, "If something seems bad, turn it around, and make something good." &...

Halloween 2013

Posted on October 31, 2013 at 3:55 PM

Every year at work we have a BIG to do about Halloween.  There are awards given and four categories: Best Costumes, Best Pumpkin Carving, Best Food, and Best Overall Theme.

My first year we won for Pumpkin carving, the second year we won for costumes (thanks to shirts that I ordered for everyone), and last year we were ROBBED!  Well, we did a really great job and I think we SHOULD have won, but we did not.

This year, I was looking for vindication!

And only a few ho...

Back to Blonde

Posted on September 18, 2013 at 12:15 AM

Well... after about a 4 year hiatus from my favorite hair color, I think it's about time to go back to my "roots" (ha ha!)

This is a picture (from many years ago) when I was a Blonde!  I loved it and after the "go-ahead" from my best friend, I'm going for it!

Wish me luck!

Disneyland 5K Weekend!

Posted on September 6, 2013 at 7:05 PM

This past weekend, I was blessed to be able to do a 5K walk with my mom through the Disneyland Resort!

The weekend started on Friday afternoon when I did a volunteer shift for the Health and Fitness Expo at the Disneyland Hotel.  I was chosen to pass out the Half-Marathon Running Shirts and goody bags and I had a blast!

I saw the REAL Cinderella pumpkin carriage, and even got to see the runDisney shoes by New Balance... on my wish list.

Check out my photos to see all my...

New Picture of Nessie "Surfaces"

Posted on August 27, 2013 at 11:35 AM

For those of you who know me, and know that I love all things Scottish, already understand that I love the idea of a new picture of Nessie, the Loch Ness "Monster".

Now, I have even more interest in going to visit my land in Drumnadrochit, Highlands, UK; which of course is where the Loch Ness Centre is located!
