Chicago at Night.

This is for everyone who hasn't been to Chicago in the winter. This is my first time. I thought that this would be a really cool thing to do. Millennium Park is a really cool place to go and you haven't fully experienced Chicago until you hang out here for a little while.

Chicago Here I Come!!

Dirty windshield and dirty sensor on my camera! Chicago awaits!!

MN Wild!

This was as we scored the one and only goal at the game Sarah and I went to see. They looked pathetic as a team and lost 4 to 1. It was a good time though! I like watching professional hockey. I don't get to see many Wild games out in California though. No bueno.

Snow in Vegas?

This was crazy! Here is a picture from the sky as I was flying into Vegas. What an anomaly! Well I landed in MN safe. Yes, I'm freezing my ass off! I'm still glad that I only have to endure this for a couple weeks every winter and can go back to Cali and enjoy the nice(r) weather. It was great seeing my family and friends though! Jack is such a cute little boy! He's growing so big too! I'll get some pictures that my sister and mother took to post for you to see!

Last Cali Sunset.

So on my last night before I flew out I went up on the roof to enjoy another sunset before I fly up to the tundra for Christmas. It was a gorgeous one and I was thinking to myself how it was a little chilly.... Then I thought about how cold it is in MN. Yeah, not looking forward to that.

Rainy San Diego.

Tried to Catch the Sunset.

Sometimes you just catch the last glimpse of it. If I see a nice sunset and out driving around. I will try and get to a nice spot to take a few pictures. After the light fades enough to put down the camera I take a second for me. This is the time I like the most. The enjoyment of living in the moment and the natural beauty of the earth.

Night on the Golf Course.

With the roommates out of town I'm looking after Bear. At night I take her up to the golf course and let her run around and go nuts. She loves playing fetch. It was a beautiful night. I'm not looking forward to going to the Christmas-Fairy-Tale-Land! Time to pull out all the sweaters and jackets!

The Culprit.

Today I was taking care of the Basil plant as my roommates have been out of town for a week and won't be back for another few days. At first the plant looked a little scarce. We have been using a lot of it lately.... We love to have fresh Basil with our food but after a closer look I spotted one of these! An inch worm! Eating at all of those luscious leaves. So I cut the leave off that he is eating and put him outside in the grass. (Yes we still have grass, no snow here! Haha) I go back to my business with the plant and found another one!! And another one!!! There were three of these little buggars just chomping down our plant! Needless to say the other two made it outside as well but they were tossed out the window!

Manic Monday.

Well it was funny today, I was getting all these calls from people telling me how crappy of a day they were having. So when this happened to me today I didn't feel so bad. I actually let out a laugh... It wasn't until I was sitting in the lobby at Holley's Tires that I thought I could've been more productive with my day....

Happy Birthday Christine!

Number 18! Wow. My little cousin is now legally an adult. On my 18th birthday I went and got my first tattoo. Other than that I really don't remember much of what I did. That was quite some time ago now though. I'll have to find out what Christine did. I haven't spoken with her yet. I only had a chance to wish her Happy Birthday on Facebook. I ended up being something like the 45th person to wish her a HB on her wall as well.... I wish I was that Facebook popular! Anyways, Happy Birthday Christine!

Grilled Cheese Extravaganza!

Start with some Sourdough bread. Slice up some Mild Cheddar, Colby Jack, Munster, Romano, Parmesan, and Blue Cheese. Add a little fresh Basil and Voila! That is one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches that you will ever taste! 

Last Night!

My Godson went to go see Santa! He looks so happy!
I remember these photos. Putting our kids on display and making them smile. You know they don't want to. Sitting in front of studio lights in the middle of the mall. Everyone walking by just staring. It can be a little awkward for a kid. We have to ask ourselves what this myth of Santa Clause does for our kids? I know it seems harmless and all but what are we really teaching our kids with this parable? Eventually you have to break their heart and tell them he doesn't really exist or some kid in their class will. Then what happens? I don't know. Maybe Peter Pan does need to grow up. I don't think he'll make it very far in the real world with that outfit though.

Diana Image.

Annotation: Perception is reality. How you see what you see is your belief. Change the way you see something and it could change your reality. This can be done intentionally or accidentally, by internal forces or external. I have read and heard that it is not what happens to you its what decisions you make that define you. So where does that put us? Right back where we started. You want to change the world, first you must change yourself.
