Messy Child.

This is an entry dedicated to my messy child and her interests :)

Hmm...what's this sandy stuff?

I think I'll try some...
Did I even get any raviolis in my mouth? Or did I smear them all over my face and body?

Now this is her before going to the beach! So cute!

She isn't the biggest fan of her glasses, though

Little sweet pie LOVES the keyboard. I know you will think I'm just making that up, or it is wishful thinking, but I'm serious! If I sit her on my lap and play some notes, she gets so excited and bounces up and down and then makes me let her play some! Sometimes she'll go up to the keys, reeeaaaaccchhhh up and play some of the keys :) It is so stinkin' cute!

Future future Schumann - Clara Schumann :) Or maybe a future Fitzgerald...Ella Fitzgerald!

Poor BABY!!!

Well, today we had a bit of a fiasco with Ella! Poor little Sweet Pie! She was playing in the DVD's and slipped and smashed her face into the tile floor! Needless to say she cut up her lip pretty bad and bled for a LOOOONG time. Even this evening it still bleeds.....

I checked the cut and it is just kind of cut up under her lip along her gums. It's not TOO bad, but every now and then she would bump it and start to cry again...with real tears and everything! SO SAD!

She's okay now, and even laughs and smiles and eats food okay, but still...I can tell it hurts her :( Poor thing!!!!

All About Me!

Well, I figured that since I have about a bajillion posts about Ella and the island life, that I would focus this one on me a little bit. I got the idea from Amber (thanks! :)) so hopefully you enjoy...
My Hometown:
Camarillo, California. A beautiful little diamond of a community in Southern California located between the fast life of Los Angeles and the retirement capitol of Santa Barbara and just inland of the beach and strawberry fields. It is tucked away in the orange orchards....

Favorite Food:

Does candy count? Okay, that is kind of cheating :)

In n Out...*droooool*

I love these "make in front of you" Japanese restaurants

Favorite Place:

Vienna, Austria. I think every musician has a little bit of Vienna in them.

Place I currently live:
St. Maarten, Netherland Antilles...too bad they don't have a picture of the REAL St. Maarten. It would look like a black guy walking down the street wearing only a pair of shorts and flip flops, ransacking every car he comes across. Meanwhile, there is a dog pooping on the side of the road, and the owner is yelling at a white person just because he wants to. Also, to the side of the pooping dog is a black lady totally ripping a lady off in a little tourist shop. Just in front of this scene, there is traffic backed up halfway across the island because the bridge is up...or all the taxi cabs decide to stop in the middle of the road to say hi to their taxi cab buddies in the lane on the opposite side of traffic....

Yeah...they didn't have a picture of that.

Place where I would like to live:

Yes. That is Disneyland. I want to live in the castle...and I would kick everyone off my property. :)

F avorite Color:

Yellow...such a happy color!

Favorite TV Show:

The OfficeThe Simpsons

Anything on Food Network pretty much

Hells Kitchen


Goals for Next Year:

I'm applying this fall to Boston University's Masters in Music Education program. So right goal is just to be accepted!

Places to Visit:

Blessed America.

Age You'll Turn Next Year:
