I had so much fun at Christina and David’s wedding last night. Everything was beautiful mostly thanks to her mother Carmen who is a crafter like me :) flower arrangements, table cloths, cookies, favors she’s amazing!!! Makes me want to get married all over again. Hmmm…vow renewal lol maybe when we win the lotto!
Recently a friend brought to my attention that i haven’t posted or blogged in a long time, I know i’m so horrible but between being a mom, nanny, wife, crafter, finding time for family, and helping take care of my grandma who has alzheimer’s I’m amazed I find time to sleep. So I apologize for neglecting my blogs but I promise I’m gonna start up again once life starts to simmer down lol. XOXO
So my husband is Mexican so his mom has told me how to make a few things, of course they NEVER taste like hers but hey I’m still learning! Last time we visited her she made Sopes I had never had them before and loved them so I asked how to make them they seemed pretty easy. Gonna try to make them myself for lunch hopefully they will at least taste good lol
Last night I finally made it to my first Stockton Ports game and I had a lot of fun. The heat sucked but by first pitch our seats were in the shade so the rest of the game was bearable. Our section won free $10 coupons for sport authority, J got to see Wow Wow Wubbzy run across the field and we even got to see the mascot Splash give some girl his number lol! All good times! We really should do it again soon. Hopefully we can. My husband now wants to go all over Cali and visit all the minor league stadiums. Sooner or later it will be done.
So I’ve been having such a hard time potty training my son. I’ve tried everything bribes, sitting him on the potty every so often, putting him in underwear and nothing works. He just pees whenever he damn well pleases. Which is fine if he wasn’t almost 4!!! My husband suggested just let him run around naked maybe then he’ll tell us he needs to go. I didn’t think this would work, I figured he’ll just pee everywhere and I’m just glad I have steam cleaner cause I’m gonna need it. Well after hours of running around naked I was right it didn’t work, only thing it did do was allow my son to “play” with himself and I had to constantly tell him to leave his pee pee alone! I’m hoping he catches on soon because I really don’t know what I’m gonna do. :(
Been helping my sister move from her little tiny place to a big 3bd 2ba house and I am exhausted. So much stuff in such a small place lol. I’m happy for them though cause it’s a place they will be in for a very long time and with the bundle in the oven they are gonna need the extra space :) I have to admit I am a little jealous lol. The house is awesome. Wish I was lucky enough to find a house I could afford to rent. Hopefully later in life I’ll too be that lucky. Now off for some family time and actually enjoy the new place.
The news is finally out so now I can celebrate and scream it to the world my SISTER is pregnant!!!!! I’m gonna be an Auntie and can’t wait!!! This is great news because I know my sister has been wanting this for a while now and I couldn’t be happier for her and my brother-in-law. They are gonna be great parents and I hope god blesses them with a healthy bundle of joy. I’m not gonna lie I’m hoping for a girl so I can go buy dresses and frilly things but whatever gender I’m gonna spoil that kid rotten. It’s truly the greatest purpose in life to be a mom. <3
Oh and I say x2 because my sister-in-law is also pregnant :) The family is growing!!!!
Being a stay-at-home mom I’ll have to admit I don’t get out much and when I do it’s almost always with my 3yr-old in toe. My husband on the other hand goes to baseball games with friends and fishing with my brother-in-law whenever he wants. So I decided I needed some time to myself and texted my BFF Crystal that a girl’s night was needed pronto. So we decided Friday (tonight) was gonna be our night :) Now I haven’t been much of a party girl since my son was born but a night with the BFF, some girl talk, good food and some vino was just what I needed and that’s what we planned. We started with a long walk on the coastal trail with lots of girl talk. Crystal is a workaholic so we had a lot to catch up on. Then it was dinner followed by a movie (Eclipse) and some Wine. Nothing special but just what I needed which was some time to myself away from my boys. Mama still loves you though.

If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it’d be worth it.”—Unknown
Thanks to my husband who introduced me to baseball back in 2006 I have become a big Oakland Athletics fan. No where near as big a fan A’s my hubby but as big a fan as I can be lol. The A’s have been having a horrible season this year and it mostly do to the horrible managing of Bob Geren. All over twitter and Facebook you could see all of the fans frustration with post after post of people expressing that firing Geren would make a great difference to the teams season. Well the gods have finally heard A’s fans prayers because today MLB has announced that Oakland Athletics have “relieved Bob Geren of his duties”!!!! I haven’t seen my husband so happy and smile so big in such a long time lol. Tonight A’s fans all over the nation will be celebrating and there will be dancing in the streets of Oakland. Hopefully in the days to come we will see great improvement in the teams ability on the field and at bat. Only time will tell but one thing is for sure it’s time to “CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON”!!!!!
I’ve always wanted to start my own blog and I finally got around to doing it lol. This is either going to turn out to be a big waste of my time or a heck of a lot of FUN!!!! :) I’m hoping for the later.
