TBIK 12.21.12


Well, looks like we survived the Mayan Apocalypse!
Yippee! Buddha helped me through the hard times.
I’m glad I didn’t end up like this…
End of the World
I am also glad I didn’t end up like Aubrey…

I love your “uniqueness” Aubrey!

We hope you have a fantastic Friday and an even better Christmas!!

Enjoying my TBIK from the comfort of my office. Like our tree? (look familiar Aubs?)

Here is Aubrey!

Are you in a bathroom??


Guess that is what we get considering she is stuck at work in new hire training all day.

Happy Friday everyone!


TBIK 11.9.12


I seriously can’t believe it is already the second week of November! Turkey Day is right around the corner!

While I am spending my Friday working and hanging out with my Buddha,

Aubrey is spending the day working out and picking out fabric for her new apartment!

Hummm…what to get?

Umm..Aubrey, I love that you are working out in your Bridal Entourage shirt (ya, that was from my bachelorette party)! Way to keep it real girlfriend! Miss you!


TBIK 11.2.12

TBIK Everyone! Boy am I glad it’s Friday. LONG WEEK!

Well, here I am with my Buddha.

Buddha is happily sitting on my knee.

Aubrey has an interview today (wish her luck)

Doesn’t she look smart! I know you’re gonna nail it Aubrey!

She has no Buddha in her TBIK picture, but she does have some leftover Halloween candy!!

mmm….give me that butterfinger!

Happy Friday Everyone!


TBIK 10.26.12 and the Photo Kissy Face


Aubrey can’t find her Buddha so she is using weird jazz figure instead.

Hi from Kansas!!

Topic of today’s post is the photo kissy face (also known as blue steel).

Is this a good look? I think not (but looks good on  you Aubs!)

Why do girls do the kissy face? It makes your lips look wrinkly, your cheeks look hollow and pretty much just makes you look silly. That said, I have been known to fall victim to the “this will look so good in a photo” kissy face.

Now this just isn’t sexy. It’s sad really.

But, I do not take 100% of the blame. Every time I pull the kissy face, I happen to also be over indulging in adult beverages.

Notice the death grip on my drink?

Again, kissy face while drinking…

And lastly, I’ve even been known to pull the kissy face while dancing.

Now, on a lighter note (or darker – depending on  how you feel about tattoos). Aubrey decided to get a sleeve. I understand that she is going through some big life changes, but please. Aubrey!


TBIK 10.05.12


 It has been exactly 1 week since I’ve last seen Aubrey (insert tear here). California isn’t the same without her!

She survived the drive all the way to Kansas with her sister, hopefully she will have some time to tell us about the trip!

Aubrey made it back to Kansas just in time for Fall; I’m jealous that she gets to look at this every day

But then again, this is what I get to look at every day

Take your pick!


TBIK 6.15.12 – Getting Our Om On


Today we are feeling one with Buddha and practicing our Om.

Om or  aum – as descriped by Wikipedia – (written universally as ॐ; in Devanagari as ओं oṃ [õː], औं auṃ [ə̃ũ], or ओम् om [õːm]) is a mystical sound of Sanskrit origin, sacred and important in various Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The syllable is also referred to as omkara (ओंकार oṃkāra) or aumkara (औंकार auṃkāra), literally “om syllable”, and in Sanskrit it is sometimes referred to as प्रणव (praṇava), literally “that which is sounded out loudly”.

Have you ever Omed? I did for the first time in yoga on Wednesday. It was definitely different than I expected. I always though oming was a quiet peaceful thing, but real oms are quit loud (I would have known this if I had read the Wikipedia page).

Random: Aubrey and I saw Snow White and The Huntsman last night. The Huntsman is such a babe! And I’m sorry, but there is no way Kristen Stewart is fairer than Charlize Theron. Just sayin.


TBIK 6.8.12


I have been so busy today I haven’t had time to take a TBIK photo! Well, I will just share this instead (since Aubrey decided to go to Kansas again this weekend)

Now, back to Santa Barbara. After we finished up with Shoestring, we hopped back into the limo jeep

And headed into Solvang to pick up the lunch that Sandy (Dee’s boyfriend) had ordered for us.

Remember this from the movie Sideways?

Anyways, after that short detour we were on the road again, but after a few minutes Dee pulled over to the side of the road. She said, “do you girls like strawberries?” Of course we like strawberries (they are only one of my favorite foods). She said we have to try Rosie’s berries

So she hopped out of the limo jeep and bought some for us. We were so excited because not only did she bring us the most delicious and gigantic strawberries

But she also brought back blackberries!

Thanks for the berries Rosie and Dee!

Next stop, olive oil tasting! But not before we drove through a mini horse farm/rescue.

Then a mini donkey sanctuary.

Have you ever seen anything so cute!? Look at the baby mini donkey!!

They also had a full size Zonkey there (cross between a donkey and a zebra).

When we finally arrived to the olive oil tasting we were definitely ready for a snack. All traces of my hangover nausea were gone and I was ready to pig out.

How cute is this sign? I especially love that it says goodness because that is what my yoga instructor calls the “meat” on her calves.

They took us around back to this little table. Check out this set up!

We each got a little roll and a paint platter type sampling dish

YUM!! I had never tasted fresh/good olive oil before! What a difference it makes. They paired each oil with a vinegar and I could have kept eating for days

(See, I didn’t even want to put down my bread)

Of course all the olive oil and vinegar were available for purchase, but I didn’t buy any. Good olive oil is expensive!

Ok, well that is all I have for now. Tune in on Monday for my review of Winery #2.
