Why I’ve smiled lately…

5 Jul
I can’t put EVERYTHING in this list that has made me smile (keeping it PG lol), but here’s a small sample from the last month and a half (sorry it’s been so long!):



It’s two of my favorite animals in one photo! I need more cute photos like this 🙂


Spent Comicpalooza with two awesome friends. Shout outs to Molly and Mark! It was definitely an interesting blast, because FOUR DOCTORS! 😉

Speaking of Doctors……..


I was able to mark another Doctor off my list: the Fifth Doctor! He may not be my favorite Doctor, but I have found I absolutely adore Peter Davison ❤ Plus come on, this photo is awesome (mainly because we were all laughing as my wig had attacked his face at first)


Gotta love us Shafer gals 😉 Family embraces your weirdness (only because they are just as weird!)

Helped End Alzheimer’s on The Longest Day this year with my loves, Team Wine Lords. Always have a blast with these people.


And most recently, spent a long weekend with my parents celebrating their 35th Anniversary  ❤

Love you Moeder, love you Dad!

Snowman pee, Reindeer poo, and other fun Christmas madness

27 Dec

As exciting as snowman pee and reindeer poo may sound (and I am sure it might be, if you are a farmer living at the North Pole), my Christmas was relaxing and family-filled. 

I got off work on Christmas Eve (darn you UPS!), went home, packed up my car, and I was on my way.  I had the “Best of Billie Piper” playing with random switches to the Christmas music station and had a venti caramel macchiato keeping me warm.

I finally got to Houston and the first thing I did upon entering my parents abode was slide across their new entry hall floor.  Thankfully I stayed upright 🙂 I loved seeing my niece again! She is getting so big!!!

Short story long, Christmas Eve was spent at my Aunt & Uncle’s house in Pearland.  It was nice to be around family and always good seeing the Fens’. Christmas Day was wonderful.  I slept in until 430 (hey, that is 2 1/2 hrs more than a normal morning so shut it!). My sister, brother-in-law and nephew showed up, Dad had cinnamon rolls baking, and mom got the coffee brewing. Miss Sharon (aka Mom #2) came over and we all opened presents. It was nice.  Becca, my SIL, her mom came over to watch my niece open her presents.  Well, “open”  anyways lol.  She tore a little bit of the wrapping paper, but that was about it.  Still, not bad for a 4-month old. We spent the rest of the day chillaxing at the parentals and then on Boxing Day I did the same.  Well, add in some laundry and an expensive trip to Best Buy, and that was the end of my trip.  We went to La Presa for some yummy mexican food and then I headed home.  The drives between Austin and Houston are long and boring (though not as boring as Houston and Dalls thank god!)

My Christmas Score:
A Christmas Story leg lamp
Toshiba tablet and accessories
2 Doctor Who sonic screwdrivers: Eleven and Nine/Ten
Sailor Mooon new manga #1
Doctor Who Series 6
the yearly Holiday Barbie
heart earrings
Betsey Johnson bag

It was a great Christmas.  The Packers won, we watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special, and had a much needed time off from the daily routine.

I hope all of you had a great Christmas/Holiday as well!


Scentsy “Party” for my Brother-in-law’s Accident

10 Nov

My brother-in-law was in a serious accident last week and broke both his legs.  He made it through surgery and is currently at home stuck in bed.  He will be out of work for 4-6 weeks and my sister has taken off a week of work to help him recover from the surgery and also get used to being on bed rest (thank god for my younger brother’s xbox lol).

In order to help my sister and brother-in-law deal with the medical bills that mounted up rather quickly, we have set up a scentsy party on her webpage and proceeds are going to the medical bills.  http://amcerda.scentsy.com

Feel free to pass it along to your friends and/or family 🙂 It is the party listed as Nick’s, on the left hand side of the page.

Thank you so much for even looking at the page!

Peace & Who,
