My Recent Obsessions!!!

Soooooo I’ve been reading lots and lots of blogs recently AND in these blogs they have something they do all the time…funny pics, funny stories, funny videos, etc. So since blogs are my current obsession I wanna do a post about my RECENT obsession, becauae I will randomly be obsessed with something for ummm 2 weeks time and then be over it…so here are THIS weeks obsessions!!! πŸ™‚

He was soooooo excited to get a new ATM card today hahahahahaha little did he know it was going to he HK! And sorry for the paper down the middle BUT you NEVER know who wants to steal your cc info!


Since I’ve become OBSESSED with blogs I have been using my iPad more then EVER! Only awkward moment….when I say I LOVE my iPad & people say really? Why? Ummmm idk because it’s the SHIT!!?!? Maybe that’s why?!? Orrrr because I just love all things apple idk why but I know I do & that’s allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll that matters! πŸ™‚

Final One NUMERO CINCO which is FOUR things REALLY in total and it is the residents of Apt Q! πŸ™‚
My Muffin & Foxy!!!

My Little Beast!! πŸ˜€

And finally the LOVE of my life!!! The man of my dreams!! My one & only!! πŸ˜€

Okay, Okay…I know i shouldn’t call them my recent obsession, because I’ve been OBSESSED with them for a while!! BUT these 4 are the BEST things in my life! They make the times & situations bearable! AND for that they are always my obsession πŸ™‚



Soooooo does anyone know where summer went?!? It seems like it was JUST the 4th of July literally a week ago & now in ONE week it will already be LABOR DAY. We have lots coming up!!

This weekend we’re going to the annual rams picnic followed by a bday party! AND then next weekend we are going to VEGAS!!! Just for two days but we’re still going! AND then it’s the Fat Boy, Delylah, and Nannies bdays on the 8th, 9th, and 10th of Septmeber! (talk about timing!) πŸ™‚ so we have two bday parties to attend!!! TWO separate weekends! ONE cupcake, ONE carnival! AND probably (Shakey’s?) for Nannies Bday!? After that me and my love have decided NO more spending money! Since we are going on our cruise on 11-13! (OUR ANNIVERSARY)!!!!!! I am so excited! I KNOW we are gonna have the BEST time!!!! We always do! πŸ™‚ and I can’t wait!!! We finally finished paying for it and EVEN have a little bit of money put away for it! πŸ™‚ OH and when I called to pay for it, they confirmed that we also got on-board credit from the cancelled cruise last year! Chicka-Chicka-Yay!!! πŸ™‚

Besides that I’ve applied to probably 30 different jobs and it is starting to get ridiculously annoying!! Like seriously?? Can’t SOMEONE hire me pleaseeeeeeee?? I need some income in order to buy a house and I want a house! πŸ™‚ NOT to mention I could REALLY use some health insurance! πŸ™

For now though, although I get down sometimes I am VERY grateful for my husband and the life that we live together!!! I literally can NOT imagine my life without him!!! He is the MOST incredible person that I have EVER met & he knows how to make me laugh! (which is the best part) he truly is my best friend and I know that there are lots and lots of people that aren’t fortunate enough to marry their BEST FRIEND and for that I am grateful! That and all the crazy beasts we have living in this house that go by the names Fox McCloud, Santiago Ignacio, and Miss Marlee Muffin!!


Bday Weekend!! :D

I can’t even say how much fun my weekend was because it was ridiculous! πŸ˜€ We had the BEST time….on Friday we went to Benihana’s to get the bday celebrations started, and we got our picture taken and had a bday sundae and all! πŸ™‚

On Saturday, we went to visit Steph & Shawn AND new baby Bryson! We then came home and got ready for the club…which turned out to be so much fun after all! We danced and drank (probably a little too much) but had the BEST time! And the club was so nice! It looked like we were inside of a Pyramid! πŸ˜€ We ended up at the Pantry and of course it was SOOOO GOOD!! AND didn’t get home until 4:30!! Whewww what a night!!

On Sunday, I woke up (as you can imagine) hungover! A little too many AMF’s πŸ˜€ AND we were ready (after some water and mimosas) to do it all over again πŸ™‚ we went to Blanca’s for the BBQ and it was so much fun! We had a HUGE turn out!! Here are some of the highlights!

*We had a Michelada cup cake!!
*We had a funfetti cake!
*I got thrown in the pool TWICE!!
*We had enough beer to get an entire army drunk!
*EVERY SINGLE person OVER the age 21 took a HAPPY BIRTHDAY shot! As a group! πŸ™‚
*I won & lost at beer pong!
*I didn’t get home until AFTER 1:30 and had to be at work @ 8 the next morning!

We had so much fun and it was all a BLAST!!! I wouldn’t change it for anything! AND tonight is Jersey Shore night AND we’re having a JERSEY SHORE Potluck!! Which means EVERYONE must bring a Jersey Shore themed drink and/or food! So until next time πŸ˜€


Birthday Weekend…WOW!

Last weekend, I was not really excited about my bday, IDK why it just didn’t feel like something I was excited about, but as it gets closer and all of the plans are starting to come together then I actually am getting exciting. We are going to a club on Saturday and then on Sunday a Bday swimming BBQ so I am pretty excited!!! I hope everything goes good and we have a blast! AND next weekend Jewel is coming so we will have to celebrate again! πŸ˜€

One thing I can’t believe is that 2 years ago today I was rushing home from work to be with my grandpa! I can’t believe it has been two years already πŸ™ I swear I can still hear him yelling at me, I can still see him walking even sometimes when I walk into my grandma’s house I think that he is going to be there, even though I know he’s not. It’s so crazy. I miss him so much every single day, especially when I think about everything, it makes me sad and some days I just think, I miss my grandpa and there will be nothing in particular that makes me say or feel that, I just get a sad feeling all of a sudden. Death sucks, and I can still remember the exact way that I was feeling on this day 2 years ago. I love you grandpa!!! AND can’t wait to have kids so that I can tell them all about you and how funny you are! πŸ˜€

For now, I got to get ready for Gustavo’s 21st bday tomorrow. SO today I will bake!! HAPPY WEDNESDAY! πŸ™‚


I can’t believe that I haven’t written since APRIL!!!! Since then so much has happened in such a short amount of time! For your reading pleasure I will bullet point some of the highlights for you πŸ˜€

>>We got a new puppy Little Miss Marlee Muffin! πŸ˜€ << >>I finished school. << >>My degree still has not posted << >>I got laid off well sort of, since it’s summer. << >>I got a new job! (part time) << >>I changed my name on my passport. << >>My love got his own truck and is now an Owner-Op << >>I’m taking a photography class & I love it! << >>I am trying to start a small business (etsy, possibly? Something to make some extra mulaaaaa) << and finally….. >>I will be 26 in 5 days!! πŸ™ <<

I can not believe that this summer is ALMOST over! Where did the time go? I have been feeling pretty down, because I have a master’s degree and am still not able to find a teaching job, so much that I’m starting to feel like I should go back to school to get a degree in something else, business? Social Work? IDK something that actually has available jobs.

The new job actually isn’t so bad, it feels like I’m working at Santa Fe Dam all over again, because it is so laid back.

AND me and my love were talking about how long we have knowing each other and we realized that in NOVEMBER or OCTOBER we would have officially known each other (or seen each other) 10 years ago πŸ˜€ I can’t believe it has been that long and I can’t believe how lucky I am to truly have married my BEST friend in the whole entire world!!! πŸ˜€

Okay, today I realized I NEED to post more on here, it’s just hard to post pictures straight to here, so I haven’t posted….but I will post more!!! πŸ˜€


Couple of things….

1. I am almost done with school! I have to have EVERYTHING finished by THIS Saturday! BUT after that I am done!!!!! YAY!!!! I can’t wait!! Only a couple of more weeks until graduation! πŸ˜€

2. I had to watch these previews for a new movie called “Race to Nowhere” and it is so interesting! They go on and on about how the tests that we give the students in our schools are pointless and that there are many students are failing! It is completely true and it makes me incredibly sad. One of the suggestions that a teacher in Oakland, CA had was that they put councilors and psychiatrists in schools so that students have help with the problems that they are having at home (considering the students are dealing with drive by shoots, parents incarcerated, money problems, etc.) then how can they concentrate on the essay that you just assigned to them to write about what they want to be when they grow up? They are just trying to live to tomorrow! :/ It is ridiculous that most of the people that are against the way that the education system is run, want to put MOST of the blame on the teachers that are teaching the classes, however the more previews I watch on this movie it shows that it is not always the teacher, yes there are times that the teacher does need to be changed, but for the most part, we have to think that as teachers we can only do so much with the resources and the material that the district, state, fed gov, make us work with! If you think about the way that things are run it is ridiculous! Before teachers didn’t have to teach as much crazy curriculum that is left in their hands now! It is so sad :/ I really really hope that with all of these movies coming out something will soon change, because instead of NCLB and R2TT helping the education system, they are just making it easier to fail! And more and more schools being closed down, and more then that more teachers being laid off, and most are quality teachers. So sad when a teacher has to teach not to the best of their ability but the only way that they can get all of the information in and hope that their students can catch up because they can’t slow down.

Okay..if you want to know more about this new movie I am talking about it’s called Race to Nowhere and you can find it at this website πŸ™‚

go look! I’m sure it will make an impact on you too!


This weekend I realized that I only have a couple of weeks until I graduate!!! πŸ™‚ I can’t believe it!!! Ughhhh it feels like it went so fast but was sooooo much!!!! I can’t believe it really!!! The more that I think about it the more that I get stressed out, because there is sooooooooo much to do!!! It’s crazy!!! But, I can’t wait for graduation though, I’ve been so busy to even be excited about it, but the closer it gets the more excited that I am that I am going to soon have a hood! And an MA!!!! Yayyy!!!! πŸ˜€

Okay okay enough about graduation! On to something else, this weekend was Gma Yoya’s bday! Well…b-day weekend & the 85th surprise party went off without a hitch!….wellllllll minus the fact that because I was so busy getting the party together that I actually missed the surprise! Yay! That was sooooo NOT cool!!! :/ but what can I do now?!? Other then that our CASINO themed cupcakes were a HIT!!! And may I say they were so cute & color coordinated! πŸ™‚

I’ve been working a lot! Which makes me happy because we have lots of things planned in the upcoming months…we’re hoping to get tickets for opening day tomorrow! We have tickets to go to the Lopez Tonight show on April 11th! We’re planning a trip to the desert for coachella on the 15th! We have Easter & Victor’s mom’s bday! The March of Dimes is on the 30th! Then we have my graduation/my dad’s bday! Mother’s day! Joseph’s B-Day party…Weesa & Matthew’s B-Day! Also father’s day!!! (somewhere in there Bryson will be born!) Then right after that 4th of July!!! Then Delylah’s getting baptized (or so I was informed today!) A vegas trip for mine/jewel’s/gustavo’s 21st & Luis’ b-days!!! Then our family trip to Palm Springs! And after allllllllllllllll that! In November we’re going on our anniversary trip!! Wow!!!! That’s a lot!!! NOW I know why I’m stressed!!!! :0

AND in alllll that we have to save money! :/ I need a full-time job!!! πŸ™

But, I’m excited for all of it and can’t wait!

Okay! It’s really late so I need to go to my cheap bunk beds! I just wanted to give a quick update!!!! Until next time! πŸ™‚

iPad :)

So we got our brand new iPad 2 yesterday, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!! I swear it’s like a little tiny computer! Or a BIG huge iPhone! Either way it’s FANTASTIC!!!

Other then that… I’m just trying to finish all of my school work without going BONKERZ!!! Considering my group assignment has been killer & my teacher wants approximately 100 pages of writing I think I’m doing pretty decent (or at least I hope I am).

My grandma Yoya’s 85th B-Day is this Saturday & it’s a SURPRISE so it should be so much fun…made me a little sad though thinking that the last time my family threw a surprise party was for my gpa’s 65th bday πŸ™ and what makes it just a little more bittersweet is that the theme is VEGAS! Same theme my gpa’s party was….

Me & Jumps are going to attempt to make 50 cupcakes for the shin dig & let’s just hope & pray they are a success πŸ™‚

I have been planning a Jump Rope For Heart event @ Sunset & so far so good! It’s only been 1 week & the students have already raised OVER $300!!! So exciting! We’ll see how much they can raise by April 8th!

Okay! This may be a short post! But now that I have this VERY convenient iPad I shall post more! πŸ™‚

Fun Fun Fun!!

Wow! I’m far behind! I haven’t written in a week!!! Okay Okay I’m gonna try to be better! So…my love’s bday was a success!! We started celebrating on Thursday with Jersey Shore night & 88c crunch wrap supremes! πŸ˜€ It was fun, as always!!

On Friday, I made dinner lasagna….

and it was delicious especially with the garlic bread that I made πŸ™‚

We went over to Alex’s to celebrate his bday and I then came home to try to cook cupcakes in an attempt to stay awake until 4 am so that my love wouldn’t be late for work, ummmm bad idea, somehow I fell asleep and my cupcakes burned! At least it woke Victor up on time for work!!!

On Saturday, I was so hungover but I knew I had to make Victor’s bday cake! I wanted to make this one…

But it ended up coming out like this, because the cake was so small…

Not too shabby considering…right? I didn’t think so…and neither did he….

OH MY GOODNESS tell me he does not need a freakin haircut!?!?!

anyway so we went to eat at the restaurant and took up the whole place…basically!


We had a blast! We then ended up @ Daniel’s beer pong fest…here’s a pic but for some reason my flash is acting up!

We got home super late and had to wake up at 8 to head to six flags on Sunday (my Love’s actual b-day!) Ugggh talk about tired and hungover….we finally made it there @ 12!! BUT we still managed to have so much fun! Victor, Tavo & Omar went on the Dive Devil together, that ride that you pay extra for @ six flags, it was so funny that me, Alisha & Leslie went on too!

We had the most fun ever!

We didn’t want to buy a group pic so we took one at the last minute! Hahahahaha we all look so cold and tired!

We then went to eat pupusas! YUMMM so delicious!

BUT our day wasn’t over yet! We proceeded to uptown to grab a couple of drinks…well a couple turned into a lot! We went to Havana but it was crowded & really really loud!!!! BOOOO so we went to firehouse and they have my favorite drink snakebites they are the BEST drink EVER!!!! Sooooo good! Well my love and Jorge weren’t ready to go home yet so we went to Joe’s BBQ…I think that’s what its called and my love made his own margarita with corona in it! HAHAHAHAHAHAH

Hahahahahaha the beer was too big and the margarita was too small! He was trying to remake this one…

We had so much fun this weekend it was crazy! Maybe, that’s why it took me so long to write this blog! πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoyed it! I’ll leave you with this picture of little Fox playing football! πŸ˜€


So it’s almosttttttt the love of my life’s birthday! πŸ™‚ I LOVE birthdays! I wish he would have just TOLD me what he wanted to do, instead he rather just turn down every single idea that I sent his way…so finallyyyyyy after going back and forth with him for two weeks, I decided that he doesn’t get a choice anymore! I am going to decide and he’s going to have the BEST time ever!

So, we’re going to go to dinner at this little mexican food restaurant right down the street from our house, called El Buen Gusto! It is the smallest little place! BUT it is so delicious! Like ridiculously delicious, and they have the BEST $5 margaritas that you will ever find!!

AND on Sunday (his actual birthday) we are going to Six Flags magic Mountain! There is going to be over ten people going so we should have the BEST time ever! AND then to end his 26th birthday weekend on Monday we are going GOLFING! YAY!! Let’s just hope it doesn’t rain any of these days this weekend, because it is going to be a blast!

NOW off I go to find a design for a delicious cake! He asked me if I could make him a cake, and then said, NO nevermind! I don’t want a cake I don’t want anyone to sing happy birthday to me, so make me cupcakes instead! hahahahaha so I’m going to make him both cupcakes & a wonderful tasting and looking cake! ONCE I figure it out I’ll let you know!!

So I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures of the soon to be birthday boy! πŸ˜‰

I just love him so much πŸ™‚

OH and I got his bday present today! HE BETTER LOVE IT! or else!!!!!

This Weekend :)

This weekend was as always a GREAT one πŸ˜€

On Friday we went to eat @ Alondra’s Hot Wings where My Love, and Gustavo & Omar all cried over hot wings πŸ™‚ hahahaha it was too funny to miss! They all thought that Atomic wasn’t really THAT hot!

On Saturday once my love got off of work we went to go try this new sushi place in Uptown called BAMBOOZE or something of that sort…it was okay…I don’t like sushi but sometimes I have to eat at places I really don’t care for…all for this face…


His sushi did look really good though…

the outside of it was pink! so cool! (too bad it doesn’t taste good)

Then we head over to my dads to watch the UFC fight and it was so much fun…minus the 10 degree weather while playing beer pong…hey! At least the beer didn’t get hot! πŸ™‚

We had a blast! As you can see! Me and Tass were BP champs of the night!…probably because he likes slushies!!! ;D

Of course, as always my loving husband fell asleep!

Yesterday we just hung out all day….and today is Monday, so that means the week starts all over again…womp womppppppp OH BUT cool thing…I ordered a new lens for my camera! So lets hope that I can figure out how to take some cool pictures with it! πŸ™‚

Okay! I have to finish my homework…but on another note, I was thinking about my life and although it is not the most perfect and is definitely not where I thought I’d be at this point! I do love it! and I can’t believe how lucky I am….just having my amazing husband makes me so happy! He truly is the best husband anyone could ever ask for and I am grateful for him every single day! πŸ˜€

Until next time!
