Today’s word is LITTER!

The first thing that comes to mind is the silliness of all the NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN ADS that are littering my mailbox! O…M…G! One more week!

Second – A litter of these adorable creatures!

And long ago, in another lifetime,

I worked as Vet Tech and on my departure of my very first clinic, one of the vets made this cake for me.


Kinda gross but creative I thought…

Happy Thursday!




Tuesday’s Coffee with some Halloween spice!

This weeks topic is “

If you were going to a Costume Ball (and since Halloween is days away), what costume would you wear?
This year them is a flash back to the 80’s!
The hair will be teased and styled high and held in place with our dear friend – Aqua Net!
The clothing will the direct result of  just be digging thru the closet of archives for pieces once thought out – which has made a small comeback.
That will take place in 4 days.

In the past though this has by far been the best costume EVER .

The idea of course goes to my hubby for thinking of it!

Monday’s Music muhhahalloween week!

This week is a freebie and because it is Halloween, I think we may see a lot of fun tunes come our way.

Here is one of my favorites -

Followed by

And because Friday  we are all taking a step back into the 80’s – here is this fun one!

Social Sunday… Part 1


I took some time away because well I was stressing about EVERYTHING including my blog. So I gave myself permission to just step back and catch up with myself.

I didn’t do anything that revolved around technology unless I was at work.
Then my hubby asked me about my blog and when I planned to update the page as he was tired of looking at the same post. Hehe, such a faithful follower he is.

So while I still feel like I have waaaaaay to much going on, But, I did decide to sit down and pour my heart out and play a little catch up with this week.

My husband keeps telling me I just need to make time to which of course I give a hearty laugh.

Laughing smiley faceWhile he is right, it doesn’t change the fact that is just doesn’t work that way.

Two minutes ago my son was in here asking me something about a game because his dad didn’t know the answer which results in, “ask mom”. So I have to stop what I am doing to take care of whatever it is he is asking about and then I found myself heating up my coffee and then coming back to this post. Gone for a total of 5 minutes… with each interruption like that, it’s no wonder I can’t get anything done.

Anyway, back to what I was going to do… catch up.

On Tuesday my good friend posted this
TIme Out for Mom – Tuesday’s coffee chat.

What is in a name?

Well not many know my real name here because my alias is Kisma. Which came to be from a game that I play with my son and hubby.

My real name is Tiffany which when I goggled,this was the first thing that popped up.

Greek Meaning & American Meaning:
The name Tiffany is a Greek baby name. In Greek the meaning of the name Tiffany is: Gods incarnate.

Latin Meaning:
The name Tiffany is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Tiffany is: Manifestation of God. In the Middle Ages, this name was sometimes given to girls born on Twelfth night.

SoulUrge Number: 1People with this name have a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. They would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details.

Expression Number: 9People with this name tend to be passionate, compassionate, intuitive, romantic, and to have magnetic personalities. They are usually humanitarian, broadminded and generous, and tend to follow professions where they can serve humanity. Because they are so affectionate and giving, they may be imposed on. They are romantic and easily fall in love, but may be easily hurt and are sometimes quick-tempered.

hahah… and most people who know me would agree that this is spot on.

How I came to be Tiffany was due in part to the following movie.

My mother loved this movie and being I was the youngest, this was her chance to have the name Tiffany. And because of my name, I hear ALL kinds of bad one liners from this movie.

“How was breakfast this morning at Tiffany’s?”

” I am going to break in to your house and steal some jewelry and say I went to Tiffany’s”

People try too hard sometimes and I just laugh.

And because of my name, I have acquired the following items because I have an amazing hubby who spoils me.

Elsa Peretti® Open Heart pendant in sterling silver.

Tiffany Eau de Parfum atomiseur, 3.4 ounces.

He went to Tiffany & Co.

Who needs Jarred when you have Tiffany & Co…?

Stayed tuned… more to come!

4. I wish I had had a calmer  personal life in high school and not had to grow up so fast because I was blessed with a looney mom. HOWEVER, it is because of her that I am who I am today. So it is a bittersweet thought, eh.




WW- & Between the Lenses = Mornings and the little things DO count!

I am doing a double post, this one actually falls in line with this fun hop I did last month to, so it was simple meant to be!

Between Lenses with Tara Victoria and Of Trees and Hues

Our mornings start at 5am…. so when I was leaving to take my son to school and saw this cute little note, my morning was truly complete! It didn’t matter that the cat was being retarded or that my daughter who isn’t a morning person, more so than myself, all of it disappeared with this simple gesture from my amazing hubby!

An early morning "love note"!

An early morning “love note”!


My husband ROCKS!

I miss Recess…

 photo image13_zps64a48e1e.png
This weeks prompt is “Recess”
The first thing that I thought of was this.
Oh to be a child again.
Life really was much simpler when we were 10 when we just didn’t know any better. Recess was just part of our day and more for the teachers than ourselves. It saved a few kids I am sure. :-)
Now as a working adult and mother of two teenagers, 
this is my recess.

My "recess"

My “recess”


I have recessed lighting in my kitchen which makes the mornings not so “bright”. That is until my super chipper, peppy, morning hubby comes in and switches ALL the lights on.

Courts will recess when  both sides of plead their case and a decision needs to be be made.

I have given myself many recesses from anything technology because my brain simply can’t handle it all on certain days.

May you give yourself a recess today to simple breath.





Coffee Chat – My Immortal.

Happy Tuesday!


What a day!
Which got me to thinking about today’s prompt for this weeks Coffee Chat with my good friend Rory.

Tuesday, October 7th/14 
If you could be immortal for one day; what would you do? 
For starters, coffee wouldn’t be a necessity, right?
Sleep would no longer be an issue, then I would simple do whatever came naturally.
Staying up late wouldn’t hurt so much the next day.
I wouldn’t stress about all the “little things”. I would just be because time wouldn’t be a concern.
No deadlines…how nice would that be?
I could always be where I want to be instead of where I have to be.
I wouldn’t worry so much about what I eat or how many walks I took to stay healthy, because there wouldn’t be that need.
When immortality is on your side, health is really a mute point right?
Does being immortal mean I will forever feel like I am 20?
The idea of immortality seems trivial because I think the reality of it would be simple.
It would change the way we think, if even for a day.
