Bouncin in the New Year

30 Dec

Hello all, Babs here and I am ready to bounce in the New Year. I hope you all had a great holiday season and are ready to start off 2016 with a bang. We have spent the last two weeks chillin here in Marietta, Georgia waiting for our next show which is on New Years Eve just over in Atlanta. It is a hotel takeover by the group Swinging Atlanta. We will be helping everyone look sexy with our outfits and glamorous with our jewelry. The humans have been working like bunnies churning out new designs and working hard on the various websites that they are on. I think it is here on NAE, on their website for Poly’s and on Amazon. kasi has been working very hard to put more of our goodies on their so be sure to check it out. They even added a new weave, its called Xanadu and looks like this.

Personally I think they take all this work stuff way to serious. Did you know they participated in 34 shows in 2015 and drove more than 20,000 miles. That is just crazy but they seem determined to do even more in 2016. They keep talking about waiting to hear about some big deal in the next few weeks but I don’t know what it is yet, very hush, hush. I will let you know as soon as I do, all I know is they talk like it will take a lot of time and effort and be really cool. Stay tuned and I will share with you when I find out what it is, if it comes about.

Anyway, about this time of year everyone starts looking back at the year that is ending and setting goals for the year to come. What are your New Years Resolutions? The humans here don’t really wait until the first of the year to do resolutions and actually made some significant life changes a few weeks ago. They are doing their BDSM Diet program from the book they wrote and are going to be posting their experiences with the program on their BDSM Diet Face Book Group. Be sure to check it out and see how they are doing and share your experiences with the program. They are even presenting panels on the program at a couple of the events they are doing this year. I’m a pretty good bunny but I’ll help out with it too.

Well, we will be working as the new year slides into the world but we hope that each and everyone of you has a fun but safe night. 2015 has been a really challenging year for us but we think 2016 will be a year to remember. Have a great holiday and I will see you in the New Year, gotta bounce, bye, bye.

Merry Christmas!!

23 Dec

Hello all – Babs here, wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!

We’re in Marietta, Georgia, this week, where it’s a little chilly and rainy, but nothing like it is back in Colorado! It’s much easier to hop through a little rain than a lot of snow!

We have a tentative show scheduled for New Year’s Eve here in Marietta, so we’ll probably be staying here until the first of the year, and then we’ll be bouncing back toward New Orleans. I never thought Louisiana would be my kind of place, but I was totally wrong. I love it there! I’m pretty sure the humans feel the same way. They seem to have some idea that something big might be happening there next year. I’m not sure what it is, but we’ll be sure and let you know if it does!

Don’t get me wrong. I love Georgia, too. And Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas… pretty much every place we’ve been in the South has been wonderful. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Carolinas and Virginia as soon as we get the chance, too.  We got to get together with some old friends and some new friends while we’ve been here in Georgia, and that’s been a lot of fun (with some amazing Greek food thrown in – lots of veggies!).

But this week we’re pretty much hunkered down by ourselves, getting over colds and things and preparing ourselves for a  HUGE 2016!! We’re enjoying the peace and rest, and getting to focus on each other for a few days. It might not be a traditional Christmas, with a tree and lots of presents and a big Christmas meal, but as long as we’re together it’ll be a wonderful Christmas and a great way to wind up a truly eventful and life-altering year. Here’s to family, friends and loved ones! We wish we could see you all, but since we can’t, know that you’re in our hearts and we’re wishing you the best holiday season ever! XOXO

Bouncin’ to a Nudist Christmas

18 Dec

Hello all, Babs here with this weeks update on our travels and adventures. Sorry it is a few days late this week but we didn’t have very good internet connection. This past week we were in Biloxi, Mississippi for Geekanomicon. We got to the area a few days early and Sir and kasi finally got to play a round of Frisbee golf. They seemed pretty happy about it but I didn’t see the appeal since the course had this sign.

Biloxi - sign

Maybe it’s just me but if you have to fight alligators and snakes for your Frisbee then you are playing in the wrong place. I did hear Sir say that it was the second toughest course he had played. This bunny on the other hand would rate it right up there at the top. Alligators, I don’t think so.

Anyway, we did the show over the weekend and unfortunately it was a pretty slow show. It might just be the time of the year but it did give me time to try out my fashion sense. What do you think? Does this helmet make my tail look big?

I also got the chance to chill with some new friends (you will note that none of them have big pointy teeth. Keep that in mind alligators if you want to be this bunnies friend.)

We ran into some old friends and made some new ones, that is a really cool part of doing all of these shows. We get to meet some of the most interesting people. After the show we headed out for Dawsonville, Georgia for our next show. It turns out it is just north of Atlanta. This one is a Christmas event at a nudist resort so it should be a “reveling” experience. I doubt we’ll have any pictures from it but have no fear, I will let you know what happens? How will Santa stay warm on his trip there? Gotta bounce, see you next week.

Bouncin’ to Biloxi

8 Dec

Hello, all! Babs here. We’re on the road again – out of Florida and back to Biloxi. I voted against coming back to this area, since the last time we were here we nearly got blown off a bridge by that horrible storm.

But the humans didn’t listen to me and I have to say it is much nicer this time. The sun has been shining and the weather is very nice. We even got to stop and take a few hikes on the way. One of the places we stopped was at a really pretty lake just north of Tallahassee. The humans had a picnic by the lake while I watched out for alligators. I know what you’re thinking – how is a cute little bunny going to protect anyone from an alligator? Well, I will have you know that I’ve given this a lot of thought, since the humans (especially Kasi) seem to have some kind of morbid fascination with the things. So I’ve decided that whenever they go walking where they might meet one, I need to keep an eye on them. I may not be able to fight one, but I’ll bet you any amount of money I’m a lot quicker and more agile than they are! So I’m all ready to distract the gators while the humans get away. I can’t have them getting eaten. Who would drive the RV?

 

Christmas???

4 Dec

No decorating, no baking, no wrapping presents. As I write this now, I’m wearing a sundress and sipping a frosty beer. No boots, hot chocolate, or snowmen. Not here in Florida anyway. I’m not complaining, in fact, I’ve really grown tired of the cold and snow of what seems like an endless winter back in Colorado. Give me long walks on the beach, and sunshine in my face any day!

As you may know by now, we don’t have a home base. We travel from city to city in an RV. It’s been an amazing adventure, but with the holidays approaching, I find myself really wanting a home.

This is the time of year for family and friends. For acquaintances we’ve forgotten. We haven’t seen our biological families or our friends in months, and it we won’t anytime soon. Will they forget us? I can’t help but notice that some of my friends don’t call or text as much as they used too.

The tree. Growing up, we would always drive for hours to the mountains of Colorado, hike in the cold and snow for what seemed like hours, my dad and uncle in the lead, all of us kids staggering behind, and whining. They were on the hunt for that “perfect tree” and we were not going to head back down the mountain until we found it. Later, in my adult years, I learned that my dad and uncle always carried a thermos of hot chocolate and schnapps. Not fair! It’s no wonder why the cold didn’t seem to affect them! We had huge vaulted ceilings, so our Christmas tree was always massive. Decorated with tons of twinkle lights and an eclectic array of ornaments. A mixture of which were store bought, and various class projects from my brothers or myself. The same tradition was to be carried out years later, when my son was growing up.

This new chapter of my life means it’s time for new traditions. Last week when we were taking a walk on the beach, we saw Santa’s sleigh being pulled by eight dolphins. It was adorable. I can’t wait until we are settled so I can embrace the southeast decorating style, like it’s meant to be. I can totally see myself putting twinkle lights on the palm trees in our front yard. Awaiting the arrival of family and friends, to celebrate the holidays. This year though, I’m not sure what we will be doing. And that’s ok. I know it will be special, because I’m with those that I love.

Cheers!

Bouncin to the Rock and Roll Beat

2 Dec

Hello all, Babs here and let me tell you I am so happy to be in sunny Florida instead of at home in Colorado. They have been getting pounded with snow and very brisk temperatures. I am a summer kind of bunny and not to fond of that fluffy white stuff that falls from the sky. If anything if going to fluffy and white around here it is going to be me and trust me, cold I am not.

This last week we did something different for us and we spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Destin Florida instead of at home with our families. Let me tell you it was a lot less crowded than normal. Do you have any idea what it is like to organize a dinner for my family? It is a crazy task because they breed like rabbits, ha ha. Anyway, it was really weird to be away from our loved ones but we took the time to start our new family traditions, like taking a holiday walk on the beach. When what to my little bunny eyes did I see but Santa being pulled by eight dolphins plus a red nosed one. I could hardly believe my eyes so I asked Sir to take a picture for me to share with you all.

So after the holiday we headed east and are holed up in Jacksonville, Florida until Monday. We are working our little paws to the bone trying to make enough new shiny pretties to have for the show we are doing on Sunday called The Big Ticket. Sir said it was a concert and we should have a good time. Well, I gotta bounce on back to the salt mine before they notice I slipped off to chat with you all.

Happy Thanksgiving!

27 Nov

Hello – Kasi here. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. As you may have heard from Babs, we’re in beautiful Destin, Florida this week. Our condo is on the 17th floor, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, and it’s been in the 80s most of the time. Absolutely gorgeous.

There have been some health issues which have made it a challenging few days, but overall we have lots to be thankful for. It’s been an interesting year, with lots of changes and adjustments for everybody in the family. But you can’t go forward in life if you’re always looking back, and if you’re not moving forward you’re dying.

So we’re choosing to use the challenges that come our way to make us stronger and more determined to make our own way. It’s odd not to have a home base, and we’re not all adjusting to life in an RV at the same rate, but we’re all committed to our dreams and to each other, and that’s what’s important.

Best wishes for a very happy holiday season to all of our friends. Hopefully we’ll get to see many of you in the upcoming year as we travel. Feel free to touch base with us periodically and let us know if it looks like we’re going to be near you. Having friends across the country is one of the best things about our new lifestyle, and we’re excited to get to know you better, and to make new friends as we go.

Happy holidays!

Thankful to be in Florida!

Hi everybody! Babs here. So what do you think of my new look? I just enjoyed New York so much I want to keep the experience alive as long as possible.

You always hear that the Big Apple is filled with rude, unhappy people rushing around and crowding each other so that you can hardly walk down the street. That’s not what we found at all. Almost everybody we met was pleasant, polite, and helpful. And we found a great place to have lunch that had more kinds of salad than I think I’ve ever seen before!

Everything was much cleaner than we’d expected, and it was so easy to figure out the trains and subway system. Of course, I could have hopped anywhere in no time, but humans just don’t have the kind of stamina that we bunnies do. I took public transportation so they could keep up.  :-)

Last weekend we were in St. Louis at a really fun event called Spanksgiving. The people there are so cool, and it’s a really nice area, but–BRRR! It actually snowed! So as soon as the show was over we jumped back in the RV and headed SOUTH! We made it into Destin, Florida today, and we’re going to stay here for Thanksgiving.

Speaking of that, I want to take a minute to say how thankful I am for my family and all the friends we have. I am so lucky to have partners who are willing to take risks, work hard, put up with some inconveniences, and go through some rough times in order to make our dreams come true. It’s not always easy but with everybody working together, we make a fantastic team. I feel like the luckiest bunny in the world.

Everywhere we go we meet very nice, friendly and fun people who I hope we get to meet again. Anytime we’re going to be in your area, please feel free to write and suggest that we get together! We love meeting new friends and reestablishing connections with people we’ve met before.

To all of our friends, we all wish you a happy Thanksgiving filled with good friends, family, and of course lots and lots of FOOD! (Personally I don’t eat turkey but I do admit I like a good celery stuffing and sweet potatoes.)

New Release – Twin Haven by Erika Reed

23 Nov

Twin Haven cover

Rylee Dawson never imagined that everything she ever loved would be taken away from her in the blink of an eye, but after waking up in the hospital from being in a serious car accident with her husband, she learns how fragile life is. After coming to terms with the loss of her husband, she is finally ready to move forward with her life. That’s when Rylee’s best friend suggests she takes a vacation to her brothers’ retreat in Montana. Rylee has never envisioned herself falling in love ever again, that is, until she met the McGuire twins.

Cade and Carter McGuire are twin brothers who own Twin Haven Lodge. Trust has always been an issue with Cade, especially after a bad sexual experience with a past lover, so he has never had a problem living the single life—until he and Carter meet Rylee.

For years Carter had been patient with his brother, but after meeting Rylee he realizes the time has come for him and his brother to finally settle down. He isn’t about to let the woman of his dreams slip away because of his brother’s emotional baggage.

Emotional Vulnerability

20 Nov

Good Morning friends, This is Reggie and I would like to discuss a serious topic today and get your input on how you handle emotional vulnerability, stress and depression. This year has been tough for many people including us. Up until about three years ago I was a police officer. I spent much of my adult life in that field and had developed survival skills to allow me to deal with seeing the absolute worst of humanity on a daily basis without letting it destroy me.

As with many in law enforcement I built shields within myself to protect me from what I dealt with and saw. I would suppress the emotions the job raised and crush them down deep within myself and pretended they didn’t exist. I kept a very tight hold on the lid keeping all of it trapped and isolated within myself. I was very good at doing this as are many on the job. Unfortunately, this leads to the misconception that cops are cold, unfeeling robots who are insensitive and use black humor that most don’t understand.

These misconceptions are not true in most cases, they are just the tools used to protect ourselves. Anyway, I left the job after 16 1/2 years and at that time I was asked to change my ways since I no longer needed to keep myself at a distance from the world around me. I was asked to lower the shields and let people, my partners, my family, my friends inside. To allow my relationships to get closer and more intimate. I spent some time and managed to do exactly that.

Up until that time I had always been a tough guy who lived by the principal of if you get hurt,emotionally, physically, whatever, you picked yourself up, rubbed some dirt in the wound and walked it off. You soldiered on, you didn’t whine about it. You didn’t let it slow you down. You didn’t even acknowledge it any more than absolutely necessary.

After removing the tools I had always used up until that I started to find that it was harder to  just get up, rub dirt in it and walk it off. Since I couldn’t suppress the emotions but instead had to experience them like everyone else I have been kind of at a loss of what to do with them. I struggle with developing proper tools to deal with emotions, stress and depression.

I have found a couple of things that help such as a grounding exercise to help me let go of things and a meditation technique using a symbol and sound combination but they only work about half of the time. So I would love to hear from you, my friends and those who I would like to have as friends if we don’t know one another yet, on what techniques and tools do you use to deal with depression, stress and emotional issues. Do you rely on pharmaceuticals assistance? Do you have a meditation technique that helps? Do you have an exercise in energy work that makes it easier to deal with life? Does it help to discuss the issues with others or does that just make it worse? Do you know of any other self-help skill that may benefit us?

I have really come to understand just how important it is to deal with these things in a healthy way since they effect not only us but all of our relationships. It impacts our loved ones, our families, our partners and coworkers. So, if we all chip in with our tools and experiences maybe we will all gain something from the topic. Thank you for your time and input. I wish each and every one of you a great weekend.

 

Reggie
