Here is a great list for your Christmas shopping..
I always think personalization of gifts is the most heartfelt, and for some, the most beloved gifts of all. If your brain tank is running on empty, try making something for a loved one. Like getting a notebook and designing the cover with your art. Or build something for someone. Maybe even paint them a picture.
Especially if you have kids and your kids help. Your loved one will LOVE it.
I love the Eat This Not That... this morning I saw one that said instead of candy, eat cranberries... ya cuz a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup takes just like a tart bitter cranberry.
Want to find out which NFL teams pack in the biggest crowds... I was shocked at number 1.. And disappointed.
I am also shocked that Rob Cano got a 10 year deal. Guy is 31... I'm more shocked that teams are still shelling out 7+ year deals to guys over the age of 25. Insane. And the quarter of a billion he's getting is pretty wild too.
Throw back Thursday is getting back tot he 80s in today blog-isode.
This was leaving my brothers Baptism / Christening back in the late 80's.
Why am I waving to the crowd.. acting all Pope-ish
Sweet shorts, socks in leather sandals.
Throw back photo of my daughter.. She was wicked tiny in this photo.
Looks like she is throwing up gang signs.
My brother and I went up to Soledad last night to celebrate my mom and dads birthdays that were this week. It's been almost 10 years since we lost our dad. And a few years since mum. We miss them always. There is always a space in our hearts that will be a little hollow missing our parents.
For you Mum and Dad.
I think this video is edited scenes from the Lord of the Rings. The scene where the ginormous eagles save the crew of hobits and wizards and fly them to safety. A huge bone to pick with the Lord of the Rings movies is - WHY DIDNT THEY HAVE THE EAGLES FLY THEM TO MOORDOR!!! Nope, they walked. Idiots.
I always wondered what it would be like if gigantic eagles roamed the earth and began to attack us humans. Now I know.
My daughter loves when I sing the theme song to Mio Mao (A Baby TV Show)
Lets be honest, I love it too.
Did you see the selfie photo of the Norwegian Soccer Star's Wife... she's a fitness blogger (I cant believe thats a real thing).... who 4 days after she gives birth, she looks like an Olympic Sprinter, with abs and wicked in shape. Its making news. And I'd like to know if she happened to get the Kim K once ovahhh while delivering her baby.. aka plastic surgery. Dont be thick in the head, Kim K got some serious plastic surgery while under the knife having her baby removed a month early. Kim K now looks like Victoria Beckham. And the sad part is, there are women out there congratulating her and asking "how'd she do it?" "how did she recover so well after having a baby"... well, the finest plastic surgeons in Hollywood can make magic happen. And I'm not saying this Norwegian mom did it, but I'm asking... did she have any help. And I dont have confirmation that Kim K did have stuff done BUT COME ON THE BROAD LOOKS LIKE A DIFFERENT HUMAN BEING! Anyways, I say ladies, take your time after having a baby. As a new dad, I have a new found love and respect for the female journey of childbirth. Let this broad have her glory of a great body... the true glory should be in the beautiful child welcomed in to the world, not how hard your body looks.
LADY GAGA AND THE MUPPETS
Did ANYONE see the Holiday Special this past Thanksgiving week with Lady Gaga and The Muppets.. Oh wow. It scared my baby. Not the muppets.
When the show began, my daughter was loving it watching all the muppets dance and sing... but then Lady Gaga appeared and no joke - my daughter turned her head and nuzzled into mums chest.
I must say that special was awful. And we LOVE The Muppets. But it felt like it was more just as promotional vehicle for Gagas new album. It was hahhhd to watch. Wicked bad. I think the first four minutes were like a bad acid trip, it was Lady Gaga dancing and singing her song Applause, with infrequent Muppet appearances. Wicked disappointing. Wicked bad. They needed to go get a Jack Black and Jason Segal duo to do a special with The Muppets. Not Lady Gaga.
I knwo everybodys favorite Muppet is Animal.. But growing up my favorite was Rolfe> The Piano Playing Dog was rad. Under rated Muppet.
While back home in Boston I bought the Mrs a Boston Dictionary. It's wicked good for her ta read up on the regional lexicon from my homeland.
