My Grandpa Boyd would be 79 years old today! He was amazing. I was only 7 years old when he died. But I remember he loved to joke around. He would always be playing with us kids and he'd always be the adult that would volunteer to go out and watch all us cousins jump on their trampoline in the backyard. He also taught me how to shuffle cards.. the easy way. I thought I was so cool cos I shuffled like Grandpa. I also remember gathering up paper to put in the fireplace and he'd build a fire for us. He loved to eat vanilla ice cream late at night too!
One of my favorite pictures ever, Grandpa Boyd as a cowboy
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDPA!! :)

About six years ago, I would always listen to X96 Live & Local in my car when I was working for Marriott. I never blogged about some of my favorite bands that I heard.. So I thought I would because I have a love for them once again.
So facebook suggested I donate my birthday to a worthy cause. So I am! Of course I'd love presents for my birthday. BUT I decided to set up a Birthday Wish page on Facebook for my friends to donate to World Wildlife Fund so if you'd like to help out (PLEASE DO!) you can click here to donate whatever you can.
I thank you in advance!!! My birthday is on July 8 so there's only 7 days to donate! I'll also post the link on my sidebar. :)

Lakers won the Championship!!! Yeah.. I'm a little late, I realize that. That seventh game was freaking amazing. I love it. I knew they'd win. I can't decide what jersey to get though.... I've been debating for about a year now.. Kobe.. or Fisher.. hmmm..
and I thought it was hilarious that Ron Artest thanked his psych. LOVE it. :)
Q. You’ve been involved in one of Phil Jackson’s threepeats. What are you going to say to him to convince him to come back?
KOBE BRYANT: He knows how bad I want him back. I’ve told him that. I’ve been openly blunt about that. Let’s go for it again.
