I absolutely LOVE Christmas. It’s a wonderful time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, spend time with your loved ones & spread some Christmas cheer. Everyone that knows me knows I LOOOOOVE Christmas & my co workers know it too! I decorate my house too early, watch too many Hallmark movies & consume my weight in egg nog. We have our work holiday lunch this week & I had joked that I was going to wear my elf slippers that have little bells on them because 1. It’s Christmas & 2. They make me happy. My coworker responded with – “well, you’ll definitely be the talk of the office.” The way they said it, made it sound so negative & like I’d be stupid for wanting to wear my slippers. Also, I should NEVER be the topic of someone else’s conversation - nonetheless a whole office. I don’t talk about people behind their backs, is it unreasonable to expect the same? ⠀ Whether this person meant this negatively or not, I think it’s crucial to talk about the importance of being kind to one another – especially during the holiday season. Christmas is my favorite time of year because that’s when my whole family gets together after months of not seeing one another. It’s a time where we’d get to immerse ourselves in holiday traditions & look back on past Christmases together. This year though, it’ll just be Rick & I. I do not mean that negatively AT ALL! I love Rick so much & I’m stoked to be able to spend Christmas with him & make our own traditions, but it’s different when it’s just the two of us vs all my siblings & I together in the same room. While I’m going to have a lovely Christmas, some other people may not. ⠀ Maybe wearing elf slippers is the most Christmas-y thing someone gets to do this year, or maybe they used to wear them with a loved one who is no longer with them. Or, maybe they wear them because they love Christmas & want to spread a little Christmas cheer & happiness to those around them. Christmas only comes around once a
Self-confidence to me is having the inner knowledge and believing that you are capable but also acknowledging that you are not the only one capable. What does self-confidence mean to you? . . . P.S. someone needs to do calf exercises, and that someone is me 🙂
Alright babygirl, it’s time to keep it moving. Let’s see what you’re all about. #porsche#bmw#foreign#panamera#latina#cuban#mexican#dallas#texas#womenincarsales#businesswomen#naked#nakedwardrobe#aldo#blogger#explorepage
I like to spend Christmas time and NYE traveling. It’s become a tradition. Last year I spent the holidays in Texas and New Orleans. It was amazing. This shot was taken in Downtown Houston. Love to go back to USA every time I can. I visited 7 states so far but still have a few more in my list. . . Where about you? Do you have a Christmas tradition? Have you been to the States? Let me know in comments.

Slow morning until 9 am and finally a group of 4 Pintails drops out of the sky. Never saw a group come so perfectly into the decoys and answer our calls. Backpedaling at 20 yards, my brother, Micah, and I got all 3 drake's and watched the hen skedaddle into the bluebird sky. You can't really explain the experience of wings whistling over your head and talking to a wild animal with calls. These birds always make all the work and waiting well worth it. 😍 #pintails
Counting down my Nineteen Most Memorable Storm Chases of the Decade. #19 - May 7, 2015 - Denton County, TX Tornado We started the day off in Southern Oklahoma, but storms clustered up and it became obvious we needed to get south where storms were a bit more discrete. We went through a core with baseball size hail, catching a few big dents, but keeping the windows in tact. When we hit Highway 380 to get a view in the notch, officers had the road blocked. Somehow we talked our way through and got our first view of the tornado. We chased the storm from Krum to Sanger, getting within a couple hundred yards of the tornado at dark. #tornado#weather#stormchaser#adventure#2019#texas
