Prince T turned 3

Image
My littlest turned three just a little while ago, and I am at a loss for words to describe how I feel about this.  I can't believe my last baby is three, and he's becoming a threenager for sure.  But he's still super sweet at times but is definitely figuring out where he fits in this world.
 Prince T and spend the day together, just the two of us. After getting his brother off to school Prince T and I went for a play date then we hit up the library to get some books. Prince T is in the challenge to read 1000 books by the time he's five, so we have some reading to do ahead. He loves to read and insists on reading the book we just read to us after each reading.
 Sometimes Prince T will even indulge me in a selfie, sometimes he's even willing to smile!

After a lunch at Macdonald's (his choice) we headed to pick up his big brother from school.  Then we headed to the park to play for a little while.  His big brother loves Prince T, and 50% of the time Prince T ret…

Friday Five: Yoga poses to master

Image
I have been doing yoga pretty consistently for the last few months.  I am a huge fan of Yoga with Adrienne, but I am determined to master a few yoga poses by the end of the summer.

1. Sitting Pigeon: I love the stretch I get with this pose, but the balance and core strength you need to ensure you are doing it properly, well I have a long way to go.

2. Downward Facing Dog: I am constantly in this pose in my practice but my heels do not touch the ground so that is what I want to get better at.

3.Tree Pose: This is an amazing balancing pose that I really want to get better at, usually I am just hovering my toes off the ground and on a good day I can get them to my shin so I'd love to get them to my thigh.

4. Warrior two: I love this pose but feel a bit week in the legs when I am trying to sustain this pose.

5. Warrior three: Yeah this isn't a pose I can do with any kind of success yet, so definitely have to work on this one!



When will things change

So this post is going to be a bit deeper than some of my past posts, as I am really curious, when will humans stop repeating mistakes of the past or is that just how things are going to be?

I grew up in a time before social media (Thank God) but we were no less able to get the word around than people are now.  Folded notes, telephone conversations meeting in the smoke pit, if something was going down in a school we knew about it.  And when I was growing up it was always some group against the next. The preps versus the jocks, yeah these were painfully pathetic fights, the skids against pot heads, not the most interesting fights either, girl fights, probably the most stealthy fights, people didn't know what was happening until it had happened. But it was always one social group against the next and it is still happening today.

Now those the groups seem to garner a more political feel, some feel it's the Christians versus the Muslims (UMM hellooo Crusades...) or maybe it's …

Photography

Image
Photos, and photography, are a passion of mine.  From the time I was really little I have loved looking at photos, having my photo taken and taking pictures.  If you know me in real life this is something that you are probably saying yeah no kidding.  If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that this is true, but it's always been a hobby, something to do to catch those moments.  Now I am really interested in taking it to something else, a semi-professional hobby let's say.

I have been taking photos since I was 12, I got my first camera at that age and then since then I've always had a camera of some sort.  So I know how to point and shoot, but my new camera has all kinds of new options, I can control shutter speed, I can control Apeture I can use presets and I get all these amazingly different photos.  Not all of them are great, but I would bet anything no photographer takes amazing pictures with every shot!

So my plan this summer is to teach myself photogra…

Riverdale Episode 11 Recap

It's HOMECOMING!!!

A time of celebration, a time to remember days gone by.  Mary Andrews comes home to see Archie, things are looking up for Hiram Lodge and there may be some leniency in his case.  FP seems to be getting things back under control, he eve read Jughead's manuscript.  Are things about to start getting better even though Jason's murder is still unsolved?

Veronica is not into continuing her moments with Archie, but she is interested in getting to the bottom of the Jason's murder. Betty however, is not interested in finding out if FP has anything to do with Jason's murder because she has already been there and knows that FP told Jughead he had nothing to do with it.  Veronica teams up with Alice Cooper and enlists Archie to find out the truth about FP and whether or not he had anything to do with the death of Jason Blossom.

Polly is on a mission to discover what the Blossom's are hiding.  She has been exploring the mansion and feels that there is som…

Riverdale Episode 10 Recap

The Andrews: Fred decides to head to Chicago to finalize his divorce with Mary.  Archie wants his dad to maybe reconsider the divorce, but Fred insists he stays home, so Archie and Jughead are home alone.   Archie gets decidedly drunk the night of Jughead's birthday, calls his dad but doesn't say anything.

The Coopers: Betty tries to be good girlfriend and plan a surprise for Jughead's birthday as well as a birthday party.  Betty and Veronica are all in for a quaint gathering at Archie's house, Archie acquiesces because he knows better than to argue.  Chuck Clayton returns to school and sits with Ethel, it cause Betty to see red, but he was only trying to apologize.   Chuck calls out Betty for what she did the night at Ethel's.  Jughead leaps to Betty's defense and punches Chuck straight in the jaw.

The Joneses: It's Jughead's birthday and Betty and Jughead are going to the Bijou to see the double feature.  Betty and Jughead got out to the movies but h…

Riverdale Episode 9 Recap

We finally get a look inside Thorn Hill and learn a little more about the Blossom family.  And the Blossoms are into Maple Syrup, it's everywhere in the town.  What will happen to the Blossom Family business now that Jason is dead?
So many questions and so few answers, and really is maple syrup that much of a lucrative business or is there more to this story?
Betty just wants to know why Polly isn't talking to her, Alice just wants to paint the Blossoms as a horrible family. Betty learns from Archie that Polly is fine but Betty finds it hard to believe that Polly won't even talk to her.  When that doesn't satisfy her curosity she approaches Cheryl, who is less than helpful. Alice loses her patience with Hank and hurls a brick through the door of his shop.
Veronica and Hermoine are dealing with the fact that Hiram Lodge knows that Hermoine has had a tryst with Fred Andrews, but Fred Andrews still does not know that Lodge Industry is his new boss. Veronica also reaches o…

Riverdale Episode 8 Recap

Is there really such a thing as a perfect family?  Can the golden couple from high school grow into the shining example of the what makes a family perfect?

Jughead tells us as the narrator that the Coopers were high school sweethearts.  They had two beautiful girls and wonderful careers and the perfect life. That is until they get shoved into their own Romeo and Juliet story, when Polly and Jason fall irrevocably in love.  These two star crossed lovers met by chance, even had a nasty, short lived break up. But when Polly found out she was pregnant, Jason and Polly got engaged with his grandmothers ring, and planned to run away together.  Which all ended tragically with Jason's death and Polly being locked away by her own parents.

How and can the golden family of Riverdale ever get back together?

Veronica thinks so.  She feels that by throwing a Baby shower for Polly and inviting the Coopers and Blossoms, maybe this old feud can finally be put to rest for the benefit of the  baby …

Riverdale Episode 7

How are you guys enjoying Riverdale?  It's definitely not the Archie Comic Universe I grew up with but I am really not mad at it.  I am very anxious to see Mrs. Andrews and I would really like to see Jellybean and Mrs. Jones, but for now they are just mentioned characters.

Well let's get started with Episode 7!

So Juggie is living in squalor and know one knows. His dad is not only a Southside Serpent, he's also an alcoholic who has chosen the bottle over his family time and time again.  Juggie works really hard keeping his secret but he gets busted by Archie and finally comes clean with his problems to Archie. Even admitting that since his dad lost his job at Andrew's Construction it's been extra tough at home. Archie and Juggie then join forces to help FP get his job back with Andrew's Construction.  Juggie confronts his dad on his alcoholism and the fact that it is his drinking that is destroying their family.

FP and Fred Andrews make amends and FP starts b…
