No tacos!

So Michelle and Kevin (KC) came over a few nights ago to watch a great movie,
“The boy in the strip Pijamas”
It is a great movie totally recommond it to anyone. It has a great story to it. I would talk about it more but it makes me sad (but it is still a great movie).
So Walter busted out the grill and made some yummy carne asada tacos! Kevin right away complained about how he did not want tacos, but just the carne asada. Although we FROCED him to eat the tacos we gave him some meat to take home.
Bright and early he scared me with this picture:

This was my reaction to the picture:

So I guess he really liked the carne asada!
Thank you God for these GREAT friends…

Extra mayo please...

Okay so I was extremely hungry at work one day, as I emailed my sister Jennie she asked;

(This is my sister Jennie)

“So what are you having for lunch”?
Since I was starving I already knew exactly what I wanted:
Carl’s Jr.
Famous star with cheese & EXTRA mayo
Regular small fries
And yummy Strawberry Fanta!
Right away she said,
EWWW!!!! Ily who ask for EXTRA mayo? That is gross and really bad for you.
HA! (I laughed) I love mayo I even add it to my pizza as an extra topping. (yes this is true)
Please don’t judge me ENDLESS you have tried it for yourself… It is life changing!
Anyway so I said,
“You know Jen how in the Carl’s Jr commercials they say, “if it does not get all over the place it does not belong in your face”… (then they show the ketchup dripping from the burger) well I like
it when the mayo drips from my burger…”!

(yummy EXTRA MAYO)

Ewww… said my sister once again…. Ur gross and your going to get fat!
Anyway so lunch time came around and I had just that. I wanted to show it off to my sister so I sent her A little picture of my lunch. I have to say… it was yummy just what I expected!

mommy, mom & wife..

I wanted to brag about my boys. I just want to add being the only girl in a 3 bedroom house is not always a bad thing.

I mean I am a "mommy" to Savior (he’s the baby). Savior follows me around the house every where I go. I can be cleaning the living room for a few minutes and he will be sure to make himself conferrable and lay as close to me as possible. When I get home from work he is the first to wiggle he’s tail. I even get a nice, big, juicy, kiss:

As for Preacher “the older brother” or better yet the “Alpha” dog. I guess I am just a “mom” to him. He is not very loving nor likes to cuddle. He tends to forget he’s not human, and truly believes he’s the boss. He is a very smart boy though he normally get’s whatever he wants. He just has a way of convienceing he’s dad (that would be Walter).
Even though I say, “Walter your dog is, OUT OF CONTROL”!
Over all he is a good boy and At least he prays:

And of course Walter, I am a best friend, friend, wife and my favorite “His Princess” to this man. I love him dearly. We get along great. He can always depend on me to have he’s lunch ready before it’s time to go to work. I worry more about making things easier for him then for myself. I guess that’s a rule of a wife to “serve her husband”.

Overall it is a blessing to have all these wonderful boys in my life… I really can’t imageine having another girl around the house… Right now I get all the attention!

The mommy, mom & wife:

Pretty in Pink

Walter and I were invited to a baby shower.

she is having a baby girl. We both decided it

would be super cute to wear the color of the

party. So we wore Pink! we got a lot of compliments

for our fabulous idea. The soon to be daddy of the shower

got called out for not being "man" enough to wear pink.

Overall it was a great shower, everything looked so pretty

and well organized. I got some great ideas for my shower

(in a few years of course).

Hair & cup cakes!

So I needed my hair done really badly, part of it was looking light brown, others darker and some even GREEN! I had no other option but to ask my great friend Michelle (A.K.A Shaka) for assistance. Michelle said she had only done hair one time before. That to me sounded like an expert! (taking the fact that I’ve never done hair period) She agreed to do it. I promise I was not scared I felt right about this.
Okay so here is Michelle getting ready for the surgery, no I mean ready to dye my hair.

Here is a picture of Michelle getting ready…

After a whole hour (or more) of seating on a chair this is the results:

All I asked Michelle was not to get my shirt dirty… (that didn’t go well)

I had to let it sit for 30 Minutes. While waiting we decided to make cupcakes! I do want to make it clear, I made the MIX, Michelle POURED the mix on the cupcake cup things.
We put them in the oven for a few minutes while I got in the shower.

These are the results of my hair and the cupcakes…

I have to say my hair came out better.

The chase...

Okay So it’s about 1:50PM time to go back to work.
I drive out of my street onto Main Street. I notice this
White Toyota following me. I decide to switch lanes to see the reaction
Of the white Toyota. The white Toyota switches lanes as well. Hmmm… I thought to myself is this really happening right now? I decide to switch lanes again and yep without a doubt the Toyota follows me again. Right away I decide I should not go to back to work. I don’t want this stranger to know where I work. Okay so after a few minutes of driving around I decided to stop by a Mexican market (no offense but this guy was white, what does a white guy need from a Mexican market right). I still didn't know if this man was following me, well to my surprise he goes into the market also! I park and he’s parking.. I get out of my car fast to go inside the store. I wanted to be around people. Okay so I am inside the store, now what? I go straight to the Mexican candy. I get a handful and go pay. In no time this man is behind me. As I was leaving I hear the man tell the cashier lady, ”I’ll be right back”. Okay so this freaked me out! All of a sudden as I am leaving he needs to leave as well. Very quickly I make a circle and go back inside the store. I was able to get a good glance at the guy. I can totally identify him in a line up. When I see him coming back in that’s then I jam out and speed away. Wow! I made it to work 11 minutes late. But let me tell you, that was a scary moment.

Thank God all is good.
Husband said, we need to tint my windows!

The baby..

The baby is finally here. My poor sister–in–law has been pregnant for way to long! She had so much pain. She was totally ready to give birth to her baby boy. I have to admit I was pretty excited for him to come out as well I was almost losing it.

I was extremely excited because, I was actually part of the entire pregnancy. With her first baby, Walter and I were only dating so I was never over the house or anything. But this time I was even the first one to give the baby a gift.. (a baby bible) and I was the first one at the hospital as a visitor.
It’s been really exciting… It’s gonna be great to watch him grow!
I know for sure he’s going to LOVE me!
I can already hear… auntie Ily… can I have ice cream.. and I will always say YES!!!

Auntie Ily


My family and I have been playing a little bit of soccer for the past few weeks. At first Walter and I just went to go and do something active.
Turns out we had so much fun that we have been going back!

We actually even have official teams! This past Sunday it was
Boys VS. Girls!

Happy to say the girls and my uncle (he’s on our team) Won!
We scored goal after goal… 18-6 was the final score!
At the end we all took a great big team picture!

It was fun!!
Oh and some little boy went up to my uncle randomly and said,
“I have some almost new soccer shoes I don’t use. If they fit one of your players they can have them”.

Guess what!!
They fit ME and they are super nice!! I am so excited I got some free soccer shoes! I am about 89% of really finding a soccer team. I love playing and I haven’t since high school… it’s about time I go back! Plus keeps me in good shape!

Bath time!

Preacher and Savior are the best doggies ever!
Husband and I have officially agreed to this statement.
They are good they love to cuddle they listen (when they want to).
They are trained to poop and pee outside (but they never pick up after themselves).
We love our boys and we plan on having them forever and ever.
But they do lack on one thing:

It’s always a drag to give them there 2 week bath. I have to chase them around and then actually carry them to the tub. Preacher is a pretty big boy it’s gonna get to the point where I no longer will be able
to bath him. Savior does not run from me but he does get scared and at times he has accidents… ugh my boys gotta love em.

Yay another game night at our house! Well husband and I
Love having people over and we love playing games! I mean
We go from the WII to the bored games, to the Foosball table…
It’s crazy! I am really excited! A few friends from church are coming and my great old friend and her husband are coming.. We go way back
Since the Marine Corps… I love her, her name is Gisele. We went through her first and my second deployment together… (when our husbands were in Iraq) It was great knowing I had someone
Who I can call and cry to and know that she knew just how I was feeling. Anyway so I can’t wait till this day of WORK is over!! It’s been never ending. I guess taking my lunch at 12 really made a difference. I normally go at 1PM so I only have a few more hours of work.

Did I mention I am VERY thankful to have a job right now.

But I just got some great news and it makes me happy…
So I thought I’d share how Happy I am…

God is good so very faithful!

Complain after compalin..

So yesterday I kept telling myself what a horrible day I had. I mean just
so much going on. I just kept saying... okay so what's next Lord?
I mean at the same time I was excited for the outcome I knew something Great
would happen after all these things going on. I just kept on telling myself God is
good his Faithful. But It seemed hard.
So this morning as I prayed to my Jesus he gave me a wake up call...
Ily, if you think you had a bad day yesterday imagine what kind of bad day Paul had..
I have to admit I cant complain he wins! My day was just not the way I wanted it to
go, it was the way Jesus wanted it to go... and it was my innerself not approving.
Why? why do we do that? God loves us he knows what's best for us!
I have to say Sorry Jesus!

Paul's bad day...
2 Corinthians 11:23-27

Have a good day...

Thank you all for the prayers and the support!

Sunday evening at church my husband Walter about 10mins before the service ended whispered to me… “I am not feeling well” hmmm… Okay, “well let’s go home I’ll drive”. “I don’t think I can walk!”... (That got my heart pumping) If you know my husband his not the type to be “weak” his very brave and strong… so for him to say that it was just a shock to me.
He finally gets up. As we walk outside I see our friends Nick and Allison. Right away I say, “Nick can you pray for Walter his not feeling well”. Him and a few other guys get around him and are ready to pray; Allison grabs me and prays with me as well. In short time Walter starts panicking. He says his getting cold and his heart is beating to fast! He finally decides he needs to go to the hospital! As we walk to the car he gets on his knee’s and says, “Call the ambulance!!” Okay at this point I am in tears not sure what I am to do for him. Allison calls for help. After millions of questions they finally arrive. Right away they start the regular routine, asking questions etc… As I am just waiting with Michelle and Allison a lot of people come up to me and pray and offer me water and who knows what else. It was all a blur I just had my eyes focus on my husband.
Finally we all go to the Emergency room to wait... Give them 10 minutes”, says the receptionist lady. In no time Walter’s parents arrive and as I expected his mom was crying and freaking out just like I was at church.
After a few hours of waiting in the waiting room… Finally we were able to go home. The entire test (blood and x-rays) came out normal. What the doctor said it might be is some pre work-out stuff Walter takes before going to the gym. It’s called “N O Explode”. It just gives you more energy and helps you have a “better” work-out.
Walter promised he will NEVER take that stuff again and also said he will not be going to the gym EVERYDAY. He truly believes it was a wake - up call from God.
His doing fine now just resting.

Once again thank you for all the support and all the prayers we are truly blessed to have awesome friends!

So this is Kevin.. Helping the time go by fast by playing a few games of “Hang man”

The crew waiting & Vince he was very tired!

Road trip to L.A.X

Okay so Michelle and I had this GREAT idea to surprise our friend Erin and pick her up from the airport at L.A X.
Erin had been gone for an entire MONTH! So we wanted her “welcome home” to be the best welcome home ever! So the day before, Michelle and I made signs…
“We love you Erin”…. “Welcome Home”… Stuff like that. The signs came out great.
So Erin was to arrive at the airport at 12:20PM. So I am a very slow driver and I freak out on the Fwy so I wanted to go early just to be safe. I got to Michelle’s apartment at 9:45ish and off we went. Little did we know that Erin’s flight was going to get pros pond! (Very big technical problems) is what they said. We found out when we were about half way to L.A.X so no turning back. As Michelle was playing with “Mrs. Navi” (my navigation system) trying to find a mall to waste time at… I drove and drove and drove! We ended up hanging out at a book store (maybe Barnes & Noble) I don’t remember. I was able to do my homework while Michelle looked at “Wedding stuff” (KC she’s already planning FYI). We soon drove back to L.A.X and waited for EVER for Erin to come out. She finally came and we surprised her. (She didn’t cry like I thought she would) but she did scream like Michelle said she would. (Guess best friends just know each other huh). It was a long drive home (way too much traffic). We stopped at Red Robin for lunch then I drove everyone home… Well Michelle went to my house but anyway.. What a great adventure with my two great friends!!

Welcome home Erin!!!”
