Halloween Party 2009

It's been a while since I've updated my Blog, but I did promise to post pics of our Costumes for this years Halloween Party. We went as Dia De los Muertos and we had so much fun with friends and live music. I painted my own face using my makeup and some Ben Nye Theatre makeup but I can attest that the paint will not crack or come apart, it stayed put the whole night! Leave a Comment!! :) Hope all of you'll have a Great Fantastic Halloween!!

Dorado!!! <3

Today's Blog will be dedicated to our family pet, our Chocolate Labrador, DORADO!!!

It's so special to raise a Pet, they become a part of the family. They have feelings and their own Character that makes them fit in the family perfectly. We got him back in April of 2009 and we've raised him through sleepless nights and a bad case of Puppy Shingles have spent numerous times at the vet and glad to report that we made it!! ha!!
Growing up, we never had a pet. I remember when I was little I would feed the street dogs and cats and my Parents would shooo them away. I always said when I grow up I am gonna have a farm and I am gonna have alot of animals on my farm.
Well, I am grown up now and I don't own a farm :( ha!! but I do have a Pet and he is the cutest most sweetest thing. We love him to death and our boys are just so attached to him. I hope he lasts us many years cause if anything would ever happen to him I know we would be crushed.
Much Love to our Loveable, Huggable, Unbelievable.....Dorado (Named by my husband's favorite fish Mahi Mahi in Spanish)

Food For Thought

(This Pic was taken by me because I was paying at the register at Old Navy and couldn't find him when I looked at the display there he was standing very still) LMAO!!! I had to snap this pic.

This is my youngest son his name is Aaron aka "Helmet" (cause every summer he lets his hair grow out and well his hair is not thin it's thick and grows sticking right up) and he is 9 yrs old. He is the life of the Party and definately keeps us all grounded.

Well, yesterday afternoon when I got home from work he says, "Mom I have my report card I need you to sign", "ok" I said. As I was going to sign his report card he tells me Mom, "What does High Waters Mean?" , I said Why? He says, "Well some of the kids at school said I have High water pants on, LOOK!! I looked at him and his fingers pointing down towards his ankles and I could see them. I asked, "What the heck happened to your pants? Did they shrink? JUST TAKE THEM OFF!!" (I was visibly upset cause I just bought him pants to start school and well, sometimes these kids grow out of these clothes very fast but damn he still has some with tags on them) and he keeps on and on, on how he was the center of attention all day today (with a Big Smile on his face) As I grabbed the pants from him I saw size 10. WTH?! He hasn't worn a size 10 in 3 years. He wears a size 14 (Once they grow out of their clothes or have worn them out to the threads I put them in a box for a Garage sale or simply throw them away if they are in bad condition) How could it have slipped by me? How did I not notice him as he got off my truck as I dropped him off at school? LMAO!! Man, I am turning into my worst nightmare! I then asked Aaron, "How did you squeeze your buns in here?" he said, (Laughing hard) "Well I sucked it in as best as I could and it wasn't easy". hahahahaha!!! Geez, I couldn't stop laughing. I never found out How those Size 10 jeans made it back into our pile of clothes but somehow they sneaked back in.

These are the times that will be remembered for a Long Long time. That's the good thing with this kido, it takes alot to get the best of him.


Have a Happy Thirsty Thursday!!!

Shoes Oh My!!!

If there is a weakness of mine it would have to be shoes!! I mean don't get me wrong I love purses, jewelry, clothes, and bargains!! but SHOES!!! OMG!! It's like heaven for me.

Anyway, I went to our local Mall and looked around and asked around for any sales and they told me Dillard's was having a 70% off sales on selected items. OMG!!! Sale?! Dammit!! YEAH!!! So I proceeded into Dillards and directly into the shoe department and low and behold....racks and racks of 70% off shoes!! I found me a pair of Gianni Bini zebra style flats for under $20 bucks!! So I am wearing them on this Beautiful Warm Sunny Hump Day with some of my MAC lip gloss and some costume jewelry my cousin gave me for my Birthday that was just gorgeous!! I am really feeling like a million bucks!! hahahaha!!!! Ain't no one gonna bring me down today...not in these Gianni Bini Shoes. Have a Good Day Everyone!!!! :)

Tuesday Lunch Date

My Mom called me for a lunch date at her home. Her cooking beats any Restaurant I know, cause like most of you'll aint nothin better than your Mom's cookin. She made Fideo with Beans (Favorite Mexican Spaghetti Dish) often made at my Mom's. Bag of Beans cost about a buck and a box of Fideo (Vermicilli) under a buck and some homemade Tortillas priceless!!! YUMMY!!!! :) Oh and I almost forgot the Sweet Iced Tea. I sometimes think there is gonna come a day in my life when I am gonna wish with all my heart I could taste my Mom's Fideo but for now I am going to savor every spoonful!! :) I always look forward to Lunch Dates with my Mom and bonding conversations that only a daughter could share with her Mother. Funny how something so simple could be so Important and meaningful to me.

Much Needed Rain

South Texas has been getting some much needed rain showers lately. We were in drought for about 11 months. Well, no drought no more!! I think all of us here in South Texas have spent the last several months doing the rain dance. ha!! YEAH!!! I didn't mind getting some rain drops on me or didn't mind the muddy shoe prints my kids (and our dog) brought inside. In fact, it gave me this warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. At night you can even hear the crickets singing as the rain comes, the little Birds playing in the puddles of water on the sides of the roads. The Big Sun Flowers in the Farm fields seemed like they were trying to reach for the skies to absorb the water first. So I would just like to report that we are all Happy here in South Texas and enjoying these Rain Showers!

Thank You Jesus!!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Happy Birthday Wishes to my Crazy yet loving Mom. :)

We were at one of our Craft events a few months ago and I snapped this picture of my Mother you can see her to the right on hands and knees trying to connect some wires and I don't think she was suppose to be doing that. ha!!! Man, I love my Mom!! She was wearing a dress and people were walking and looking at all the stuff that we had in our booth and she's over there with these wires trying to plug them in. hahahahahaha!!!! I was trying not to shake as I snapped this photo. Keep in mind my Mom is turning 63 today.

My Dad goes to bed early at about 7PM every night since I can remember so my Mom spends her evenings working on crafts. This particular evening I was at her house visiting with her as she was working on some projects and it was cold outside so the "Gas" Space heater was on in the living room. I saw her working on a wreath and putting some decorations on the wreath and all of a sudden out of no where she grabs a can of spray paint and starts to spray this wreath. It all seemed slow motion NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I shouted and she looks at me through her bifocal lenses What's wrong? she says I said Mom you are gonna set this place on fire and Dad is sleeping?! She says, " Pssshh I do this all the time so she proceeded to spray. lmao!!! I snapped a photo from the entrace of her front door with one foot out and one foot in. ha!!!

She definately is one of the lights in my life. I love her dearly. Today is her Birthday and I wanted to dedicate today's blog to her. My Mom may not be perfect but she's perfect to me. I can only wish to be 1/2 of the wonderful and giving person she is.
