Busy Little Bee

Monday, June 24, 2013


So if you haven't noticed I've been a little absent from my little blog. I have been going crazy not being able to sit and blog. I also miss reading all the awesome blogs too! I need to spend a day a whole day just catching up. Maybe if I'm lucky I can do that soon.

The company I'm working for has a very extensive training course that is a month long. I spent a lot of hours driving and living in and out of a hotel.(a very nice hotel at that!) I've made a lot of new friendships from it, which is awesome! But my poor little head is about to burst from all the information it's taking in. I almost feel like it can't take much more. 

As we all know June is the month for the beginning of summer, and the ending of the school year. My oldest, Cody, graduated from Elementary school, here in Jersey. He also won 3 awards, and really made me proud! He is such an amazing kid. I truly believe that he can do whatever it is he wants in life and always be astounding. He has such an amazing mind. 

I really haven't done anything new in the last couple weeks, but as soon as training is done, which should be in a week and a half, I will be back to my regular blogging status. I have a bunch of cute clothes I need to post too! 

Oh! Is anyone excited about instagram's video feature? I know I am!

To The Special Men In My Life....

Sunday, June 16, 2013

This is me and my dad in 2010 when I went back home to visit......
and this is me and my dad way back in 1982.
This is my awesome father in law..they were making an Eeka sandwich here...(2010)
My father in law last July at the Zoo. (2012)
My wife who has stepped upped to the plate and is an awesome step-parent. (Spring Break 2013)

I have to say that I am very blessed for all the amazing men (&Jes) that I have in my life. I know I pictured here the most immediate men, so I also have some other special mentions too. All my brothers (Kevin, Scott, and Joseph) are all extraordinary men and fathers. Though my younger brother Scott is a soon-to-be daddy, I know he is going to be amazing! My brother Kevin has a full load. He has 8 awesome kids and 6 grand-kids! He has really expanded our family and put in a lot of hard work raising everyone! My brother Joseph, who is actually my brother-in-law, is an amazing father also. Not only does he two awesome boys, he is also a stepfather to his wife's' daughter. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love every single one of these men. Each and every one has played such a huge part in my life, I couldn't even begin to tell you all the stories/memories we have made throughout the years. 

My dad has to be my most favorite guy ever! A lot of you out there don't know this, but even though I may not be around my dad, and we have had our ups and downs, he is always there when I call him. He has to be one of the most understanding and forgiving people on this planet. Though he has had one crazy and exciting life, with stories that would blow your mind, he still is one of the most caring people you can meet. He is always open minded and always willing to help. I love you Dad!!!

My father-in-law Steve is one of coolest guys! He is loving, caring, honest, fun and the greatest grandpa. He has done everything for his family to make sure that everyone is always taken care of. He's also a great husband and partner to my mother-in-law. He has been a role model for my wife and her brother, and I'm sure many more, and now he is an amazing role model for my kids. Thanks for being such awesome guy Steve! We love you so much!

So, because I get all the attention on Mother's day, my wife Jes gets to have Father's day. For someone who has never been with anyone who has had kids, and doesn't have any of their own, she has been an amazing partner in raising them. I never expected her to pick up on the whole mom/dad role so seamlessly the way she has. I'm not gonna lie, there has been some exhausting times (we are raising teenagers!) but it has all been worth with it, and we have some of the best memories for it! Happy Father's Day Honey!

I hope all of you out there have an amazing father's day, and celebrate it with lots of food, maybe eating some food from the barbecue! I know we will! After the barbecue I'm headed back to training up north. I will have a giveaway coming up this be prepared!

A Little Spoiled....

Monday, June 10, 2013

For the next month I will be in training for my new job (if I haven't mentioned that yet, I've been recently employed by a major cellular company). I get to spend 2 and 1/2 weeks in a comfy hotel with a king size bed! I also get all my food paid for. The down side is being so far away from my wife and kids. I get to be spoiled up here though, while I sit through lots of training. What I didn't show in the pictures was my big flat screen TV and huge closet! They could have easily fit a kitchenette in here because this room is ginormous! I'm staying a little outside New York City, and that's pretty exciting. This hotel is filled with business people, which is funny, because I'm use to staying in hotels with tourists. There's a huge difference in the atmosphere and its really quiet here, which is nice.

but that's it for now....have a great day!

So much cuteness going on in the blogging world! That Luna Moth necklace is on my "Must Have" list! I've always been obsessed with moths and butterflies, and I need this beauty to add to my collection. Jessa and Crissy's hair is to dye for! (did you catch that?lol) That hamburger ring is way to cute...even for this vegetarian! Shakti's rug is finally done and she couldn't have done a better job! I love it! And last but not least, Rachelle is as adorable as usual, and that cat necklace is super cute! What a steal for $3!

I hope you all have an awesome Friday! TGIF!

California Girl

Outfit Details
Flower clip - Icing
Tank top - Thrifted
Shorts - American Eagle
Shoes - Converse
Sunglasses - cant remember?

I about died with excitement when I found this tank top!!! I am a Cali girl through and through and what an awesome way to I was born and raised in Orange County & L.A. So anytime I see anything from my home state I have to buy it! These shorts are pretty much my go-to-all-summer-long shorts, I love them! I also can't begin to tell you how beautiful it has been here on the shore. The humidity hasn't been bad and everything is so green and pretty. The beach is absolutely beautiful too! I'm not going to lie though, I miss my California beaches. My favorite beach to go to, which I lived about 10 minutes from, was Aliso Creek. It was pretty quiet, and had a cute park for the kids. I miss it so much! Though being on the Jersey Shore is really fun too :)

Geeky Confessions #1

Monday, June 3, 2013

(Lord of the Rings)

I need to find a cute picture to put inside my Hobbit door locket!

Via : Rachel on Etsy

        So here is series of confessions I will be making throughout the next year. I've been sitting around lately thinking that I really need to add all my little obsessions, and I couldn't quite decide how to do it. So I thought, what about confessions? So here I am! First up is going to be Lord of the Rings! I have been obsessed with this series for a long time, but to be honest the love of the movies came first. Most of us, I know usually fall in love with the books first, but this is my confession and I'm so embarrassed  here to say that my love for Tolkien came after. Trust me, I wish I would have been around in 1954 when his master piece was originally published, but unfortunately I wasn't. Yet amazingly here I am, sporting a cute little hobbit door necklace and head over heels in love with a world filled with elves, orcs, and hobbits! 

I also have : Not all those who wander are lost, tattooed on my arm :)
I plan on having this whole poem tattooed on me!
