One Chruch-Two Church-Black Church- New Church

Well as most of my friends know Shelly and I have taken on quite a project with this Church Hoppin' Task. I have to say I have never been closer to my Higher Power than now! But I do have to say there is such a familiarity yet BIG difference in the church's we have been visiting. Let me give you some details. This is only one more of the many we have been to.

Disclaimer: This is one woman opinion and she checked with God prior to writing he said "Go for it my little Angel"


I seriously do not know where to start. Let me start across Simi at the Calvary Baptist Church. When I drove up the first thing was I had a flash back. Why this building it use to be the Jewish Day Care and my baby Heather use top attend. EEE how did that happen. It is an abandoned school that has been re-purposed by the Good Lord.

Well when we arrived there they are. You know them the women and men you will see in front of your local Payless store skirt on suit pressed and those small children you all ways wonder why are they not in school ? oh and pamplet's in hand. Yup !


 But no I am not going to judge this situation we are here to sing praise! AH but we are not allowed in the chapel until the service begins because Sunday School is in session. Ok but seriously there are 20 other building? WAIT we are not wearing our sister wives skirt Holy Shit .

I took my Welcome Pack and my Bible and sat myself down.









 There was only one problem I could not stop looking at the little nest in the child's hair in front of me! 





 The pastor was adorable and very welcoming he even said our names ! This of course put Shelly into tear's.

Well that really let everyone know we are not wearing our skirt's. They turned to look and welcome us and all eyes were on our pant's.
I think I heard a oh my from the crowd! And a small girl uttered But Mama!









But Praise be to the Lord that at least they are in church getting a bit of the Good Lord in there systems. I do have to say that no matter what church we have gone to they all make us feel welcome and a part of.

The one thing I noticed at this one is that Little Father Adorable was the only one to greet us!

God Bless You!

Church Crashers

BFF in C yes this is me with my Best Friend Finding Church. Shelly feels the need for a  little Spirituality/Baybay Jesus so we have set out on an adventure this 2015 to find it. What is "It" we are not quite sure what "It" is but so far I think this is going to be a Spiritual Hoot!

I never knew Church Hopping could be so much fun!

Cornerstone Chruch



Church what a great concept a building where people gather with like minds in hopes of hitting a home run with God.

I am a "good" Catholic girl with a sailor's mouth BUT baybay Jesus does not care I am gold in his eyes.



Well our first step into Holy-ville was Cornerstone Church. Let me make it clear I mean NO  disrespect to any church I critique, but people need to know and this is great all the way around. How? You get to know about Churches in your good ole Simi Valley and we get Spiritual.

I have known about this church for sometime and I know women and boy's who attend and they "Love" it. So off Shelly and I go to Cornerstone Church . We enter nice people (no real warm and fuzzy), gather some paperwork and find a seat. I spot a friend from long ago and chat. Shhhhh the service is about to start. Let us all stand for a song!

"I can hear the angels calling" Then the choir Rock Band starts. Mind you it is so loud the drummer is behind an acrylic room! It only took about 30 seconds and Shelly said I am going to wait in the hall! Ok no reason she has been ill so I think she is a little icky. After about 1 minutes I notice it has gotten louder and I am having flashbacks of In the Gadda Via by Iron Butter Fly I had to go into the hall with my Pal. We sat back and yes the walls were vibrating ! Now I am a lover of music as everyone knows but really!  Wait there is a doughnut !

 Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I think the music stopped!




Back in we go for the service. Still in a spiritual state of mind. Well the Pastor was so full of energy (coffee) I could not keep up with him. I think the topic was "we were on fire" "he's on fire" "Put out the fire". I tried to keep up with the Bible pages but the dear soul was talking to fast for these ole' finger's or mind to keep up. But I did throw out all the matches in my purse as to keep the sermon in mind "fire" 



All in all here is the Review of Cornerstone Church or as I put it

 And Baybay Jesus said .....

"The Church of What;s Happenin' Now" This church was packed and this is the beauty of it. For today's generation of young adults it did my heart good to see so many young people. This church is community involved and wonderful choice for a place of worship just not for us!


Great Building
Nice Congregation
Super Rock Band for Baybay Jesus
Super good variety of donuts
Dynamic Pastor
This church was packed and this is the beauty of it. For today's generation of young-in's.




I give this church 1 Our Father and 3 Hail Mary Rock and Roll !

Come on down 2015

Well today I sit quite sick yes I am ending this great year with a fa-shit head cold. But in thinking about the year to come I am really excited. 2015 will be a year of growth for all. It will bring us a new year to become better people. We all make the "Resolutions" I stopped that a few year's ago.


So sad 2009
Why you ask! Well let us run it down. We all say I am going to get healthier and loose weight. Yeah that worked for the first few weeks then around March we can not figure out how the hell we gained back the weight and What the heck 5 more pounds. Got Damit! So do as I have embrace that body. If you have had the same body and desire to loose the weight for at least two or more years and nothing well Give It Up be satisfied with who you are and move on.






This is a Leash


 Speaking of move on I will get in better shape Ahh here we go again. Join the Gym really! First the cost of the gym that you will go to for a while would be better invested in a jump rope and a leash for your dog.








Look how happy we are to walk


 Anything you can do at a gym you can do at home. And unless you have a friend that knows the definition of commitment just do it yourself the buddy system Sucks!





Stop drinking, cussing, smoking, eating, texting, driving to fast the list is Endless. Just do this

Be Kind
Be Loyal
Be Healthy
Be Helpful and When you Pay it Forward do it because you want to not for any praise. When you do something nice do NOT tell anyone just do it for the sake of being a better person. 

Happy Got Damn New Year and no I will still be cussing like a truck driver I have accepted that I have a foul mouth. There ya go!

We had a delightful Halloween with the neighbor Trick or Treating and these girls came with a Goat! Love my neighborhoodie!

We had our Annual Halloweenie in the Hoodie Party. The Good Ole' Neighbors were here and we added some new one's.


We are truly blessed to have such a close knit neighborhoodie!

Toilet + Paints =

So far the announcement of the month ? You ask !

Well there are several.  The bathroom is almost done.









 I have finally finished a painting from the watercolor class. The teacher goes so fast. In her defense I do believe it is to make us practice at home but seriously does she realize that we are "Seniors" and I want to be treated accordingly.

Well I am finishing my homework.






On to the never ending bathroom. It only has the glass to finish off the job but Good Lord it was started June 7th and it is what December now ????? But there was a lot involved and many a hiccup which does happen in Home Improvement right ?????







I have been preserving up a storm the lady down the street my "new" friend has allowed me to pick her tree's. She had some super sexy dark red plums I made Plum Jam and some Strawberry Plum jam. The yard is just an on going project. I water endlessly but rather than have a drip system which I do agree is great. I have chosen to water individual plant when they need ti and directly. Yes it is time consuming but the results are good.




It is butterfly season. I have set up my butterfly grower safe haven for those caterpillars that may bite the dust. Why you ask not use nature?


Well ravens, ants, spiders, and all other yard shit eat the lil critters. Yummy for them not for the caterpillar? Thus the safe haven hamper! If you want to know more About Monarch Butterflies or any local butterflies you can go to this site. Linda and Rick run it. They have monthly sales and you can call them anytime to purchase anything butterfly!





Oh yes and my baby brother brought over his corn he grew. Lil Thing. Oh Mama would be so proud! And the corn was really sweet and delicious we grilled it.
