Shopping is good for the Soul!

Since this is a holiday weekend, naturally Sofia needs a new outfit! :)  I went to my favorite store, Marshalls, at lunch and found this dress for her.  What do you think?

I think the plaid SCREAMS American, thus it is perfect for July 4th.  Oh and this lady almost jumped me for this dress at the store. I was looking at it and she yelled "OMG THAT IS GORGEOUS!! WHERE DID YOU FIND IT?"  Uuuhhh in the rack stupid, duh! Geez...thankfully she went away.  And I looked in the racks again and it was the last one. So nanny-nanny-boo-boo lady! :)  Anyway, I was also THIS close to buying her a red-white-and blue bathing suit but I resisted.  The one she has now will work I guess.

Since one dress isn't enough, Abby and I are going shopping AGAIN tonight!  I can't wait.  Of course, now that I WANT to spend money, I won't find anything.  And in a few weeks when I'm broke again, EVERYTHING I want will be on sale.

I will let you know what I find tonight.

If it's not one thing....

The World Cup is on my nerves!! You already know that.  But Lord have mercy....this damn Twilight crap is ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's all over Facebook and I hate it.  I guess I could stop checking my FB so much...YEAH RIGHT!

This is another phenomenon that I just don't get.  And when the hell did vampires become so cool?   They are dead!! HELLO!! And they drink blood.  Am I the only that thinks this is a bit weird?  Mosquitoes drink blood too and no one is wearing TEAM MOSQUITO!  Geez. 

AND it's not even the young kids anymore....GROWN ASS WOMEN are standing in line to see this. AT MIDNIGHT!! Do these people not have jobs??? And does anyone remember that this Taylor dude is like 12 years old? And these women are drooling over him!!! He is jail bait.

Where's Buffy when you need her? 

So if anyone out there is a lover of this crap...please enlighten me!!!

Maybe I'm just mad because I didn't think of this crap! Man, I would be RICH! :)

The Bachelorette - Episode 6

We knew this episode was going to be good and it was!! Well at least the beginning was.  Last week they gave us a teaser that someone had a girlfriend.  Of course, someone always does.  Well my predictions were wrong and it was Justin, ("Rated Loser") the wrestler!!!   But I must applaud the Bachelorette for letting us in on this secret at the very beginning of the show and not make us wait 2 freaking hours!!!!  Anyway, so Chris Harrison, Mr. Personality himself, came into Ali's room and she was surprised and "scared" to see him.  He vaguely tells her that they have some information on one of the guys but he was going to let Jessie explain it to her. At first I was like "who the hell is Jessie and why does she get to tell her?"  Jessie was a bachelorette with Ali on Gay Jake's season.  Anyway, Chris calls Jessie and lets her tell Ali the news.  So Jessie tells Ali that Justin has a girlfriend.  And then she tells Ali that she's there WITH Justin's girlfriend.  LOVE IT!  They don't say how they know each other and they don't say how Jessie knows all of this info, but whatever.  So then the poor little girlfriend gets on the phone with Ali and tells her ALL of the juicy details.  She says that Justin only wanted to be on the show to get famous, and once he did, he was going to go back home and marry her.  Oh and then the REAL girlfriend found out that he has had ANOTHER girlfriend for the past two months.  So she was ok with it until SHE was being cheated on.  Nice.  Oh and was it me or did the girlfriend NOT seem that upset??? I don't think I saw ONE tear stream down her face.  I've seen better cries on Young & the Restless! 

So after all this sinks in, Ali is PISSED OFF.  She tells Chris that she wants to confront him NOW.  So I'm thinking she's going to have him summoned to her room and she was going to yell at him. No, this girl goes into the guy's suite and TOTALLY puts him on blast in front of EVERYONE!!! I am loving every second of it.   His face was PRICELESS!!!!  So Justin literally gets up, goes and gets his stuff and walks out!!   "I got my passport. I got my wallet. That's all I need,"..IDIOT.  So Ali chases after him down the fire escape. I mean seriously, this fool is in a foot cast, she could have caught up to him and BEAT HIS ASS!!  So they emerge outside and this idiot is climbing over bushes, he tries to go inside a restaurant and it's closed! LMAO!!!!  It was CLASSIC!  And of course the cameras are there to capture it all.  Ali is still chasing him telling him to "face it like a man". Ummm Ali, he's not even half a man so good luck with that.  So you see the idiot walking aimlessly around. I mean seriously, he's in Turkey, where the hell is he going to go?? I doubt he has any Turkish cousins he can call to come pick him up.
So finally, the idiot comes back and sits next to Ali on some bench thingee.  He sits and thinks about all the lies he's about to tell her and he says "I bet you want to rip my head off right now"  YOU THINK ASSHOLE?? So he goes on and on and about he does have feelings for that girl but that she's not his girlfriend and that's she's more like his best friend.  Ali says "so this girl, your best friend, just lied to me??!!!!"  And Justin was like "uummm..well...huh?"  Seriously, JUST LIKE THAT!! He couldn't give her a straight answer, he still denied it all. But of course we all knew he was lying and thankfully so did Ali.  So he says "I'm sorry for everything" and walks away.  She's left sitting there fuming.

And the best part of the ENTIRE the camera is following Justin through the streets of Istanbul, they play voice mail messages that Justin left to his girlfriend! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love it when the voice would say "next saved message".  CLASSIC!!!  And all of these messages say how much Justin loves her, how much he regrets doing this, etc etc.  The producers at this show know how to get ratings and I love them for it.  I wonder how much they paid her for those messages.  I'm betting that with the money she got, her and Justin are going to live happily ever after. So in the end, their plan worked ANYWAY! But it made for good TV and for that I am grateful.

And seriously, after that I don't remember anything. LOL!!! I think there was a group date. Oh wait, they did wrestle (literally) for Ali's love. So cliche but I will take it because Roberrrrrto was all oiled up. YUMMY!!!!  

There is no cocktail party at the end because she knows who needs to go home.  She sends Craig on his way and the show is over.  Oh and Frank goes crazy next week but we can't tell why.  YAY FOR CRAZY PEOPLE ON TV!!!

Soccer is getting on my nerves!

Is it me or has the World Cup been on for 4 months?!!? And since when did Americans start liking it so much???  Well this American still doesn't.  Even though I must admit it was exciting when I read that the USA team won in those last 45 seconds or something. Leave it to us...always procrastinating!

And what the hell is a vuvuzela????!?!?!  I hear this word 2343234 times a day.  Well I found out by Googling it of course.  And then I saw a Youtube clip of the noise. OMG, if I was at one of those games, I would grab that vuvuzela thing and beat the shit out of the person using it.  I listened for 2.5 seconds and already had a head ache.  Another reason to not like soccer.

And If you are a soccer fan, please enlighten me to why I should give it a chance. Although the hot boys that play ALMOST make me a fan...ALMOST!  Ok so looking at this picture...I think I LOOOVE! 

Chris Brown? Sincere or just plain LOSER?

I didn't watch the BET awards last night but thankfully these days, you can find everything on Youtube!  A friend of mine posted Chris Brown's tribute to the late and great Michael Jackson.  I watched it and I thought it was good....until this idiot starting CRYING at the end.  And it wasn't even a soft and tender was one of those "my momma whooped my ass and now I can't breathe" cry!!

IS HE SERIOUS?!?!?!??!  I honestly believe that it was all for show.  Did he cry like that when he was beating Rihanna's ass?? Probably not!!!!!! 

Men vs Women!

Usually I would pick the woman but today, I am going with the man! And a HOT this guy.

I don't even know who that is but good LORD he's hot.  Anyway, sorry for the ADD moment.  As I was saying......This morning on my way in to work, HOTT 95.7 was talking about an interesting topic.  The question was regarding OBGYNs.  Sexy, I know.  Anyway, they were asking if anyone had a HOT male doctor that they saw.  HELLO I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  A lot of my friends think that I am weird for having a hot OBGYN but I don't mind it ONE BIT!  I mean, seriously, if they are going to be 'down there', then wouldn't you rather have a CUTE person instead of an ugly old fat one??  At least that is my thinking.  :) 

Do you have a preference?

Oh Vienna....

Ok so I never liked this idiot from the beginning and now she is all over the place!! OMG GO AWAY!  But before she does, she said this in Star Magazine (and yes, I do believe what they print!) She is stating this as the reason she broke up with him.

"We haven't been intimate in months now," Vienna reveals. "More than four months. At first his excuse was that he was fasting. The second excuse was that he didn’t feel like it. And the third excuse was that he said that he felt that I wouldn’t understand that he wants to wait until marriage, even though I told him I’d support him. Then the last excuse was that we fight so much that I push him away. I was like, really — which excuse is it? I literally have been living six months with this guy who won’t be intimate with me!"

Uuuummmmm HELLO BECAUSE HE IS GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Have I not been saying that for the longest time??  I cannot wait to say "I told you so" when he comes out with his boyfriend Ryan Seacrest.  Just saying.

Lucky 7?

Today I recevied my Happy Anniversary card from our CEO wishing me a congrats on my 7 years at GHP!!  I can't believe it's been that long! I was only 23 when I started and now I'm *gulp* 30!!!!  Where have the years gone?

But I must say, I do love this place (most of the time!)  I have met some of the most wonderful people here (you know who you are!) and for that I will always be grateful. I even had a baby while I was here!! CRAZY!!   I have listed a few of my favorite memories at GHP (sorry people, most of these will only be understood by fellow or former GHP'ers!!)

  1. I met Craig Biggio!  Even though I lost the picture that proves it!
  2. One winter, our server was hacked and we couldn't work for a WEEK! And we still had to come in! But watching movies at work was kinda fun.
  3. Dave Walden. Nuff said.
  4. When I first arrived, Theresa didn't like me.  But now she can't live without me. :)
  5. Rex Humphries anyone??  Exactly.
  6. The famous Energy Summit with THE Hilary Clinton.
  7. Free hot dog night at the Continental Club.
  8. Waiting for the rioters outside and they NEVER showed up! BOO!
  9. Realizing that I didn't tell my venue the  event date changed and when I showed up they were like "huh?" NICE ONE BLANCA!
  10. Riding a roller coaster after said luncheon to make myself feel better!

There are lots more, but I won't bore you with them!
So to GHP, thank you for not firing me having me and giving me such wonderul memories!!  I wonder how much longer I will stay??!!

Are we really surprised?

The world watched as Jake picked Vienna over sweet little Tenley and we were PISSED!  Or was that just me?  Anyway, I knew that these two idiots were made for each other so I figured they would be together FO-EVA!  But alas, the honeymoon has passed and they are headed to splitsville.  At least they didn't get married or have *gasp* kids!

I mean seriously, these relationships never last yet when the break-up hits the airwaves, people can't stop talking about it. And that includes me! LOL!

And to be honest, I think Jake is gay! Have you seen the turtlenecks and scarves he wears?  OH-SO-GAY! 

Maybe now that they have broken up, the will go AWAY!

The Bachelorette - Episode 5

This week's episode wasn't that dramatic but it had its moments.  So let's see what I remember! :)

Last week they were in NY and this week they get to go to Iceland!  Iceland..really?  Who goes there? I'm sure this is the only country that didn't protest some idiots traveling to their country...especially Kasey and Justin's dumb ass!  Anyway, so they are in Iceland and it's cold....surprise! Although I thought Iceland was green and Greenland was icy??!  But I digress...

So at one point they have to read poems to Ali and have some sort of Icelandic words in them. Who comes up with this stuff???  Anyway, the dummies do it and it is hilarious.  Some are cute, some are painful, HELLO CHRIS N!  Seriously, who is this guy? And where did he come from?  Anyway, he tried to wing it and just was all over the place. Even the guys had to turn away.  So in the end, Kirk won because he did a Roberto and said the poem to HER!

So he won the one-on-one date and I don't even remember where they go and what they talk about it.  :)  YAY FOR MEMORY LOSS!  Oh and he gets a rose, so he stays. I do remember that.  And let's be honest, he's not that cute! :)

So then Ali has a group date with the two crazies of the bunch. Tattoo Kasey and Wrestler Justin.  This one is interesting because we know that both of these fools are NUTS but yet we know ONE goes home.  So we have all been waiting for Kasey to tell Ali that his psycho ass got a tattoo.  If  he didn't do it, Rated Loser was!  So at one point, Kasey and Ali are on the side of a glacier (romantic? NOT!)  Anyway, Kasey starts to mumble something and takes his gloves off.  He's going to show her!!! So yes, he finally does!  And since there was no where for Ali to run, she stays and is like "WHEN DID YOU DO THAT?"  He tells her, they talk about it. He says something about the number 11..I'm guessing that's how many people he's killed so far.  Anyway, it was awkward and Ali tells him that she's "happy he is himself".  Really Ali?  That's the best you could do.  Anyway, so the time comes for her to choose.  And c'mon, after that tattoo thing, did you really think Krazy Kasey was going to stay?  So the saddest and funniest part is that Justin and Ali leave while KK is STILL on that glacier!! LOL!! The helicopter starts its engine, and he is literally standing out there watching! I wonder if he's still out there? :)  It was so pathetic but classic Bachelorette TV!!! Even Boogie felt sorry for the idiot. then they go on a group date and Roberrrrto is there. :)  They go on some horses and then end up at some hot spring.  Ali takes off her parka and is appropriately dressed in a string bikini.  OF COURSE!  But I must admit, the girl does have a nice body..BITCH!  So the boys frolic with Ali in the middle of a glacier in a hot spring.  These dates are over-the-top but that's why we watch right?  She kisses all of them I think - YOU GO GIRL!  And most importantly, she kisses Roberrrrto!  Jeez this dude is HOT STUFF!  Ummm...that's all I remember.

So at the Rose ceremony, Frank tells her that he's sorry he hasn't bee trying harder, gazes into her eyes crazily. Ali thinks it's sweet.  *sigh* And of course they kiss.  Only one guy is leaving and it's Chris N (who?!!) Exactly. He's nobody so no one cares.

BUT NEXT WEEK IS GOING TO BE GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Someone has a girlfriend and we find out who it is.  Boogie thinks it Tennessee Ty...I think it's Kirk.  But I can't wait for Monday to find out!!

Until next week....

The perks of GHP!

So yes, I complain about this place but there really are lots of perks!  Look what I got on today!!

I had a luncheon at the Landry's on the Kemah Board why not ride this???  It was so freaking hot and I was tired but hey, since Astroworld is gone (WAA!!), I took advantage!

So to my Houstonians...remember the Texas Cyclone??? Well this one way waaay bumpier!! I had a head ache when I got off but it was so worth it!!!! 

Sssshhh....don't tell my boss! :)


So talking about Boogie's love for ketchup on his tamales made me think about this.  I think that ketchup is only supposed to be used for french fries!! I know there are people out there that agree with me!  Boogie likes it on his tamales and on his EGGS!!! GROSS!!!

My niece Megan used to like it so much we would catch her DRINKING it.  Yes, drinking it.

So what do you put ketchup on?

Father's Day!

This year was Boogie's first Father's Day and it was a good one.  We didn't do too much because it was too damn hot outside.  We thought about going out to eat but didn't feel like being bothered with the crowds.  For breakfast we had tamales. YUMMO!!  Oh, side note, Boogie eats his with KETCHUP!!!  I think that's the weirdest thing on earth but WHATEV! 

Anyway, we bummed at home the rest of the day and watched movies.  For dinner Boogie decided he wanted mole, his fave!  So of course, I obliged.  Oh and he eats it with potato salad which I also think is weird!!! ANYWAY...I made rice too and it was delish.  And for dessert, I made a cake!!!!

Oh, and for his gift, I got him some Jordan's.  I know what you are thinking, he's 60 years old and wants Jordans!!!!  But I always have to hear him complain how poor little (well not really!) Boogie never had Jordans growing up and everyone else did...BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!  So, I said "FINE" and got him some.  He loved them and he's already wore them.  I'm going to have to take a pic and let ya'll see. 

So happy Father's Day to my love!!!

Friday, June 18, 2010 sucks!

Well it doesn't really but it sure did take away from my blogging time!! RUDE!  I have an event on Monday so I had to get a lot of things done.  Jill even taxied me around the City of Houston. :)

I have lots of things to blog about but I don't have time. I will get around to it next week some time.  I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and especially thier Father's Day.  This is Boogie's first one so it will be special!

Have a good one people!!!

My obsession!

I have an obsession and the first step to being cured is to stop denying it.  So it stops today.

I LOVE PENS!!!! :)  Anytime anyone leaves this place, I go to their office and take them. I LOVE IT!  It is so much fun. When Michelle Arnold was leaving, I didn't even wait. I did it while she was still here.  :)

Here is how many I have! :)  And if someone borrows one of them, I make sure to get it back! And when it's time for me to write, it takes me like 2 minutes to decide which one. I even do a test run.  I HAVE ISSUES!! But I love pens.

Diet update!

As I said earlier, I am going on a diet.  Well I wanted to let you know how that's been going.

Here is what I had for breakfast...

Oh wait, how the heck did that picture get on there??  LOL!!!  I should have had that for breakfast, but this is what I really ate.....

So basically, week one has been a complete FAIL!!!!!!!  I did good on Monday...I promise I did.  Instead of taking responsibility for my actions, I am going to blame Mother Nature! :)  That bitch lady sent me my monthly gift the week of my diet. RUDE!!!!!  Hello, I need fatty foods to keep me from killing people make me feel better!

So I am going to try again on Monday...promise! :)

The world is ending!

No seriously.  Either that or Hell is really cold right about now.

Guess where I am people??  AT MY DESK AT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you believe it? I sure can't.  Of course I'm not here because I want to or am a over acheiving employee of the GHP.  You know me better than that!  I'm here because I have a meeting to set up for. Who the hell has meetings at 7:30 a.m.?  Oh...normal people do?  Well, they SUCK!

Off to make lots and lots of coffee! :)

How high is TOO high?

So as a Latina, I love me some high heel shoes.  It's in our blood..we love our tacones (high heels in spanish!)  We all know that tacones make your calves look better, your legs look longer and they are just plain sexy.  Men will tell you the same.

BUT...there is a limit ladies.  I'm all for some nice heels for work, but stripper heels are a bit much!  I see girls walking around the building with shoes so high they can barely walk!!!  Seriously dumb ass, if you can't walk at 8am, well 9 am when I get here, ok, 10am!, what makes you think you are going to be able to walk when you go home at 5pm!??!!  Jesus. 

So how high is too high?

I have seriously seen someone wear these to work!

This one girl that worked HERE, used to sport these bad boys. And I am so not lying!

If it were up to me, I would wear these every day. Even in the winter! :) 

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Oh Facebook....

So Facebook is at an all-time high.  I know because I'm addicted and probably will be until it fades out...if it ever does. And I must say, I hope it doesn't. 

So everyone knows that I am the nosiest person EVER!  So FB is perfect for me.  I can see what everyone is doing without even having to email or call them!  And let me be honest, there are some that I don't care to know what they are doing, but it may come in handy one day. 

The FB friend that really gets on my last nerve is the one that everytime they post, I roll my eyes, throw up in my mouth a little, say "STFU!", etc.  Who do these people think they are?  No one cares how "happy" you are.  No one cares how much you love your babies, dog, husband, etc.  I want to know that you hate your husband/wife, that you wish you could throw your kids out the window (not that I would ever say this!), that you wish your husband/wife would take a vacation from YOU for a week (I really do love Boogie, promise!) know, the GOOD stuff! :)

Even though I get annoyed at these people, it still makes for good conversation and an insight into their lives.  And I am probably guilty of some of this with all my postings of my Sofia...but I can't help that. She is TOO cute!!

Oh, as a nosey person, I HATE HATE HATE when people put their profiles to private. HOW RUDE!!! I want to see your pictures even though I don't even know you...DUH!  And if I do know you, but don't want to be your FB friend, I still want to see your pictures, see what loser you married, and see what your kids look like!  :)

I know, I have issues. But that's why you love me. :)  Now on to check my FB!!!

The Bachelorette - Episode 4

Ok so last night's episode was GREAT!  Roberto was half naked....need I say more?  :)  I jotted some notes last night  for this episode but of course, I left them at home.  So I am going to try and wing it!  Bare with me people. 

So yesterday, they announced that they boys were going to travel around the world with Ali.  Of course, they are excited. I mean, I would be too. HELLO FREE VACATION!!  So the first one-on-one date is with Kasey.  This dude is WEIRD and I knew that from the beginning.  Is it me or can you not understand one word this fool says?  Seriously, he reminds of that character on King of the Hill..the one that babbles.   Hey it kinda looks like Kasey! LMAO!

ANYWAY, they leave on a helicopter, fly around the city...very typical Bachelorette.  But who cares about all that crap.  THIS FOOL STARTS TO SING TO HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And I swear it was out of the blue.  I was so emberrassed for him, I literally could not look. Ask Cassie, I had the blanket over my face. And the song went on for EVER!! And he can't even sing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was bad, and AWKWARD!!!!  So on these dates, either you get a rose or you go home. I thought for sure this loser was on his way back to his casa.  First, Ali calls him out on all antics and tells him that it all seems fake. AMEN SISTER!  He's too much. Reminds me of someone I know...but let's not go there.  So she doesn't give him a rose, but yet he stays. I am confused but Ali was dumb to keep him...good for ratings, bad for her.

This is them on their date. Look at poor Ali...she is bracing herself for this awkward kiss! LOL!!

So after that awkwardness, the group dates goes to the set of the Lion King. AWESOME! I don't remember who was on the group date but all you have to know is that Roberrrrto was there! Can you tell that he's my fave?  So they all have to learn how to dance (more awkwardness) in spandex no less.  Jonathan Novak was at home on brodway in spandex...I am SURE of it.  This is mecca for him.  But who cares about that loser.  So they all have to sing to Ali and my Roberto wins...YAY! And he was smart, he sang TO Ali and I'm sure she melted. I know I did.  So he wins a date and he gets to be IN the Lion King with Ali.  They do this weird dance thing in the air.  I wouldn't care what I was doing with Roberto, as long as I was doing something.  I swear at one point in the "dance", his face was in her crotch.  I'm so jealous of Ali..bitch! 

Ok, so that's done, and I think I stopped watching for a while because my mind is blank.  Let's fast forward to the where she lets two go home.  Mr. Gay himself is trying so hard to get some alone time with Ali. He actually goes and asks if he can cut in someone's convo with her, and he is SHUT DOWN! LOL! I love it.  He finally gets some time, and this idiot has a guitar and starts to sing to her.  This is the awkward show of the season because again, I couldn't look.  Who does he think he is??????  Surely not a good singer! Poor Ali.

Oh wait, I forgot the best part.  Stupid Kasey went and got a tattoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was on his wrist and it was of a heart with a shield around it and a rose.  Yes, a bachelorette rose. Can we say LOSER?  This dude is way off his rocker.  He doesn't get to show Ali but I hope someone tells her that he's going to cut her into tiny pieces if she doesnt' let him go SOON!

Ok, sorry ADD. So back to the rose ceremony.  So she starts to give out roses.  Roberto gets one of course. Some dude named Chris N. WHO IS THAT GUY!!?!?????  I think he's an extra that got put on by mistake or maybe a lighting director. Anyway....Mr. Gay goes home and some other cute guy. Poor things. They got beat out by a stupid wrestler and a Ted Bundy in the making.  So of course Jonathan "Mr. Gay Weatherman" Novak cries.  This is like the 10th time.  I am so glad you are going home.  You make Houstonians cringe. Please don't back to our Tvs either...stay away!!!

Until next week people!

This is how I feel today!

So miss Sofia was up at 2:30 a.m. and didn't go to bed until 3:30 a.m.!!  Then her dumb dad didn't come to bed until 4:30 a.m. and that was about the time I was FINALLY falling asleep!  THEN he kept waking up every 1/2 hour to go to restroom ( I will leave out details!) AND THEN I had to wake up super early to get here at 7:45 a.m. (THANKS JILL!).  *sigh* I am tired just typing that.

Do you think Sofia will be asleep when I get home and stay asleep until 8 a.m. tomorrow?????!!!!  Hey I can dream right!

I hope Boogie doesn't expect me to cook tonight (or do anything else for that matter)!

Weight Watchers here I come!

So today is the worst day ever day I start my diet.  I HATE dieting.  My ass on the other hand has been begging me to lose some damn weight.  And not to mention my thighs, ankles, bed, chair....!  But...I digress.

I have tried weight watchers before and I lost 25 lbs!!!  Isn't that awesome?  Well I am going to be a maid-of-honor in January and I need to look better than the bride cute!   I like WW because you can actually eat what you want, you just have to count your points!  So let's see how this works out.  It better because I need to get skinny! :)  I will give you updates when I remember. :)

Soft or hard?

And NO I'm talking about THAT you pervs! I'm talking about french fries!!!  You should have know I LOVE to eat!

Anyway, I have had conversations with people about how they like their fries.  Some people like theirs crunchy, some like the soft ones. I have a friend who only eats the ones with the square ends!  WEIRDO!!!

Oh and I loooove me some crinkle fries!! Those are soooo freaking good.  But I love potatoes! I can eat them everyday!

So how do you likes yours?  I prefer mine me! :)

Class of 2010!

Good LAWD I am OLD!! I graduated in 1999! GOOOO SPARTANS!!   But enough about my old ass....

My cousin Ashley Marie Espindola graduated and of course, as all Mexicans do, had a party! :)  As usual it was lots of fun!!!  It was Sofia's first real family party and she LOVED it! She was mesmerized by the DJ lights! I may have to get me some of those for the house.  That's not weird right?  Here are some pics from the party...

Cass and Jenny

The next generation of family members.  Except for Eddie (3rd from the left)...he's old! I don't know how he got in there. :)

Cass and the graduate!

My precious with her tio Alex.

It was a fun party!  Lots of dancing like always! CONGRATS ASH!!!

Friday, June 11, 2010

C'mon 5 o' clock!

I have 4 minutes left and I get to go home to my baby!  Oh, and Boogie and Cassie too. :) 

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to get into this weekend but I will let you know on Monday.  Who am I kidding?? I am super boring...I won't have much to tell! :)

I hope you have a good one.  See everyone on Monday!!!!

Happy World Cup!

Ok so I have never ever cared about the World Cup (and still don't) but geez, it's all over the place this year.  Whomever did their PR campaign, YOU GO!! It's totally working!  They even got the Black Eyed Peas to perform...PRETTY AWESOME!! I mean Fergie makes everything ok. :)

All I know is that USA is playing like tomorrow and I hope they win. And of course, as a Mexican, I hope Mexico wins too!

So if this is your thing...HAVE FUN for the next few weeks!

My baby yoga pro!

This is in honor of Michelle Arnold....Sofia's inspiration!!!

Who says babies can't do yoga?  Sofia's downward dog! :)

Pretty good huh?

This was too cute not to share.  And just for the record, this is NOT my post, I am borrowing it. :)

You know the characters, but you might not know their full names. Store these away for future trivia nights.

1. Did you know the Comic Book Guy on The Simpsons has a name? It’s Jeff Albertson. But that wasn’t the decision of creator Matt Groening. “I was out of the room when [the writers] named him,” he told MTV in 2007. “In my mind, ‘Louis Lane’ was his name, and he was obsessed and tormented by Lois Lane.

2. Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. (Ken’s last name is Carson.)

3. Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Captain Horatio Magellan Crunch

4. Snuffleupagus has a first name—Aloysius.

5. In the Peanuts comic strip, Peppermint Patty’s real name is Patricia Reichardt.
6. The Wizard of Oz rolls off the tongue a lot easier than his full name, Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs. From Frank Baum’s Dorothy And the Wizard in Oz:

“It was a dreadfully long name to weigh down a poor innocent child, and one of the hardest lessons I ever learned was to remember my own name. When I grew up I just called myself O.Z., because the other initials were P-I-N-H-E-A-D; and that spelled ‘pinhead,’ which was a reflection on my intelligence.”

7. Mr. Clean has a seldom-used first name—”Veritably.” The name came from a “Give Mr. Clean a First Name” promotion in 1962.

8. In a deleted scene in the 2006 Curious George movie, The Man With the Yellow Hat’s name was revealed as Ted Shackleford. (Since the scene was deleted, perhaps this doesn’t count.)

9. The real name of Monopoly mascot Rich Uncle Pennybags is Milburn Pennybags.

10. The policeman in Monopoly has a name, too. You can thank Officer Edgar Mallory the next time he sends you to jail.

11. On Night Court, Nostradamus Shannon was better known as Bull.

12. On Entourage, Turtle’s real name is Salvatore Assante.

13. Sesame Street’s resident game show host Guy Smiley was using a pseudonym all these years. He was born Bernie Liederkrantz.

14. The Michelin Man’s name is Bibendum.

15. On Gilligan’s Island, Jonas Grumby was simply called The Skipper.

16. Staying on Gilligan’s Island, The Professor was Roy Hinkley.

17. The unkempt Shaggy of Scooby-Doo fame has a rather proper real name—Norville Rogers.

18. The Pillsbury Doughboy’s name is Poppin’ Fresh. He has a wife, Poppie Fresh, and two kids, Popper and Bun Bun.

19. The patient in the classic game Operation is Cavity Sam.

20. The true identity of The Lone Ranger was John Reid.
21 & 22. OK, these last two aren’t fictional, but just in case it comes up, Bono was born Paul David Hewson, and The Edge’s name is David Howell Evans.

CMT Music Awards

Ok so normally I would be excited about these because I LOOOOOVE country music.  BUT...Carrie Underwood is coming on so you what that means?!?!?  Cassie is already taking over the TV!!!  Even when the commercials come on, we have to shut up so Cassie can catch a glimpse of her. 

Let's see how it goes and see who the big winners are.  And more importantly,  I want to see what these fools are wearing!  Kid Rock is hosting so this should be interesting!!!
