Girl power in the movies.

December 6th, 2014

I had heard so much about the movie Frozen and how inspiring it is to young women. I finally watched it a couple of weeks ago, and WHAT?!?! I have no idea what these people are talking about. Yes the girl becomes a queen, but I’m not sure what the big deal is. It was a cute little movie, but all I kept wondering was, why are these girls eyes SOOOO big. And then I imagined what a real person would look like with eyes that ginourmous, and I was horrified! Think about it :) . And the song is still pretty annoying. But I love Olaf, the snowman. ⛄️⛄️

The other day I watched Maleficent, and WOW!! I love this story. It was so much better than Frozen in my eyes, but we all know I am not your average chick. Talk about girl power, and taking matters into her own hands, she is now my hero. She didn’t let some power hungry, poor father figure get in her way, nuh-uh. She rose up and got shit done. I don’t want to give any spoilers. But she single handedly handled all the things Mr. power hungry screwed up in his own life, because he certainly couldn’t handle it himself. Hell hath no fury baby!! Maleficent for President!!

I had no idea what to expect going in, but I am so glad hubby grabbed it from RedBox that night.

Then last night, my daughter and I had a movie date to go see The Mocking Jay. Talk about girl power. I adore Katniss Everdean in the movies (hated her character in the books). I knew what was coming next, but it was portrayed so well in the movie. And to see it all on the big screen made me giddy. I got goosebumps and teary eyed at all the right spots, and I adore Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket. With each film she is more and more adorable. I did notice a tattoo on her wrist in one scene, does anyone know what it is ?? Oops, back on track. Julianne Moore was perfect in her role, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman was Amazing. And I was so pleasantly surprised to see Natalie Dormer , with her bad ass hair cut. It was a great mommy/daughter night, and now I can’t wait for the last film.

Just another update of my relentless ramblings that probably only make sense to me LOL.

Go be amazing,
Kitsie

New beginnings….

December 3rd, 2014

In this off time from the photo op gig, I’ve been feeling so, well BLAH. So I made the choice this week to do something about it and joined a gym. And yeah it’s only been one day since I joined, but I am loving it so far, and I do feel better. So let’s hope this continues, and I don’t whimper out :) . But I am pretty sure the massage chairs and tanning beds will keep me coming back :)

This weekend we head to Orlando, and I’m pretty stoked!! It’s been since the kids were in grade school the last time we were at Disney. And yes I already checked there is a gym where we’re staying ;)

The house is decked out in it’s Holiday Glory. I tried to take a time lapse video on my phone of the tree going up, but alas, I pressed slo-mo instead. I’m still trying to figure out how to take it and turn this now 29 minute video into time lapse. LOL. DERP

Be all that you can be,

Giving Thanks everyday

November 28th, 2014

I seriously try to express my gratitude every day, either mentally or verbally. But on Thanksgiving day, the rest of the world is thankful. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say if we were all a little more thankful and focused on the good in our lives, this is gonna sound CRAZY, we’d all be a little more happy. If you told your loved ones you loved them a little more often, if you complimented someone, if you smiled a little more, we’d all be a little happier. Let that simmer like I did my concrete gravy today.

I’m grateful to be alive, to have an amazing, patient husband, for my children who are the light of my life and a pain in my ass at the same time. I’m grateful for this amazing company Chris and I built on a fluke. I am grateful for my friends and the rest of my family. I am grateful for my dogs, the amazing house I live in in the middle do the enchanted Forrest. Grateful for the tears and the smiles of every day life. And I am grateful for these things on a daily basis.

What’s the moral of this story…… Stop and smell the roses, for realsies ☺️

Sexiest Man Alive

November 19th, 2014

While the twitterverse and the interwebs are a buzz with People Magazine announcing it’s Sexiest Man Alive, I wanted to let you know I had my husband withdraw from the crowning because I don’t know that I could handle the rest of the world knowing how truly sexy he is ;) He just rolled his eyes and gave me the proverbial moon face.

So People did name Chris Hemsworth the sexiest Man alive. With good reason, While he is not quite as sexy as Chris or the other man picured in the photo below, he will do a fine job :)

Heading to Reno tomorrow, and I am pretty stoked about it. I’ve never been to The Biggest Little City in the world. So it should be a blast.

No excuses, I just suck.

November 14th, 2014

Soooooo, it’s been a while :) I could start rattling off reasons why I haven’t posted, but who wants to hear my excuses. I’ve been busy, which we all have been I’m sure.

Here’s what’s new, We launched a new episode of Oddity Files

Our next Celeb Photo Ops gig is in Reno, and I’m so stoked to go check out Reno for the first time.

And other than that, life is great, I promise to try and update more often, but I can’t make any promises.

Happy Weekend and all that good stuff

Well, I know you’ve been sitting on the edge if your seat awaiting pictures of my redecorating project *. So here ya go:

It’s still not completely done, but I’m excited as to how it’s coming along.

Another big deal around these parts is the twins are graduating High School this weekend. My oh my where has the time gone?? I am not quite going through empty nest syndrome yet, but it’s bound to happen sooner or later. Needless to say, when it does, I won’t bore you with the details, maybe…..

20140527-100344-36224345.jpg

hope your Holiday weekend was awesome if you’re here in the US. And enjoy your short work week. The CPO crew is off to Atlanta this weekend for the AMAZIN’ Wizard World Atlanta show. If you’re out that way, stop by the show and check in.

Have an awesome day of being amazing!!

Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today To get through this thing called life …

May 20th, 2014

Happy Tuesday morning to ya folks.  I hope this finds you well and in great spirits.  Mark me down as a yes on both counts.  Life has been pretty swell lately, *knock wood* the weather is amazing, my family ROCKS, I have a new grand Kitty :)

I think I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I’ve just decided to be happy.  I used to stress and freak out about the stupidest and most ridiculous things (and yeah I do still slip up once in a while) but I was so over being miserable.  The only person who can really truly make you happy is you.  So I just made the conscious decision to look at things differently, and it worked.  I adore my job, my hobbies (www.oddityfiles.com & www.GetScared.TV) are totally awesome, my kids while are still kids and still set me off from time to time, are amazing human beings.  And I honestly couldn’t be more proud.

Speaking of stuff I’m proud of, have you seen the latest episode of Oddity Files?

 

 

 

 

 

Well be grateful my friends, even if it’s only for the small things right now. Just be grateful

My life has been so, errrmm so, uhhh so, boring lately.

May 9th, 2014

Hey gang, just a quick check in.  Life has been pretty normal lately.  Except for a couple awesome trips for work, Chris and I have been on a clean out and organize kick.  We’ve cleaned out areas in our house that the TV show Hoarders would possibly cringe at.  Stuff we’ve been meaning to do for YEARS.  We’re finally doing it.  I’m not really sure what has been the big motivator, but I am so happy it’s happening.

 

The most exciting thing in my life is my living room is getting repainted.  After 11 years of what I call Harvest gold in my living room/foyer/kitchen I am shaking things up and adding some drama (no not the annoying kind, the pretty kind) to the rooms.  I can’t wait to show you the finished product :)

20140509-110425.jpg

 

Which in turn has had me on a redecorating kick.  Which I haven’t done in YEARS.  Chris and I got the couches for the living room last summer, and I’ve been trying to decide ever since what else I want to change.  And the day has finally come w00t!! Let’s hope I’m able to pull it off how I envision it in my head hahahaha.

So yeah, my life has been exciting for me, but certainly not something to blog about. Unless you’re into this kind of thing. But even if you’re not into redecorating, prepare yourself for a ton of “after” pics :) coming soon.

Best,

Kitsie
