I was just going through some pics from this summer (yes it’s cold, cloudy and rainy today, hence the nostalgia), and realized I never posted this pic of quite possibly the most puntastic tee ever.
As great as this time of year is, it also can be so hard for so many people, in many different ways. So here’s a little checklist with a challenge for 4 weeks that can give us all, and the people we encounter, a big ‘ol warm fuzzy.
Which is always a good thing.
Cheers. Smiles. Pass it on.
…and the watercolor book, is done.
High five. Big time.
Considering most of the US is in temperatures lower than 40 degrees, it’s time to think some warm thoughts. And nothing says warm thoughts, like some more Moorea pics. Oh my, I need to go back.
Makeup. So may choices, so many colors, so many different items. It’s quite overwhelming actually. When I did a survey of my makeup drawer, I realized there are 5 items that are my go to, “I gotta look good in 5 minutes or less” routine…which is pretty much always my routine, because I am always running late, and am married to a man who thinks taking 20 minutes to get ready is a really really long time.
Anywho, enough about me, let’s talk about the fab 5 items that I have (and love), and therefore am convinced I could throw out the rest.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Unexpected blessings are the habanero of life. The other day I was in a bit of a debbie downer mood and it was super calm and foggy out. So, I figured I’d bundle up and take my standup out on Lake Washington before sunset. Well, while I was paddling out, a photographer named Bill Pusztai happened to be on shore. He yelled to ask if it was ok if he took some pics of me paddling out into the fog. I (of course) yelled back yes, while spelling out my email address so he could send me some pics…
High five for year 3!
Goldfish Kiss is 3 years old today, and all I can say is wow. Time flies when you are having fun (and rarely know what you are going to post each day.) It’s been amazing meeting so many sweet new people, helping out companies, and most of all, getting emails saying “your site makes me smile” or “you are an inspiration”. I am totally flattered. So, to say thanks, I put on a bikini, my rain boots and headed down to the lake…on the coldest day of the year yet.
Who loves ya? Moi.
Cheers to another great year.
For some reason, this idea of a DIY bikini advent calendar popped into my head this morning. Oh yeah, it’s December 1st, which means time to start the countdown to Christmas. For me, this also means time to countdown to traveling somewhere where I can wear some of these oh so rad bikinis (and not get hypothermia).
So, I thought I’d pass on the calendar I just made in my office, even though those little paper advent calendars where you get a chocolate each day are pretty darn fun.
This one’s just a bit more bikini friendly.
This one’s for my husband, family, friends, followers, supporters, new adventures ahead, amazing times behind, carpe-diem days, and every single unexpected blessing along the way. I am so thankful for you all.
A huge thanks to the crew over at Indah for letting me ramble on about one of my favorite holidays, a few traditions, bake brie (in a bikini)…and for giving me an excuse to take some pics with the pup. Which is always a plus.
Check out the Q & A aqui. Enjoy. :)
When I can’t make it to the beach, I like to wear it on my arm. Along with a bikini underneath my sweater. Sorry that’s not in the pic.
I’m (gasp) actually getting in the Holiday sprint early this year. Blame it on the radio station that switched over to holiday music 24/7 (Something about the Alvin & The Chipmunks song just gets me.) I still have little to no clue what I am actually doing for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, but a few of these ideas and items were so rad, I had to pass them along. Glow in the dark christmas lights sweater, and Free DIY leftover pie containers included.
Bah humbug no mas.

Two pages left, and then it’s on to book number two (and something else I’ve got up my sleeve).
