funky new style

I'm letting my hair grow out for a while. I'm happy with it just wavy and natural. I'm going through a lot of changes emotionally and physically(for the better). So I would like to change my look a little bit. Due to my weight loss, my clothes fit me much better so I'm more confident in them. Yay!

Feeling...

ahhh...much better! So yesterday I was feeling a little down in the dumps. Last night I went to my workout class and I instantly felt so much better! This morning I fixed my hair nice and put some make-up on with such carefulness. Make-up always makes me feel better. I spritzed on some of my favorite perfume (Dolce and Gabana Light Blue). Oh the simple things in life are sweet!

I did nothing again...

this past weekend I was so incredibly relaxed it was unbelievable! I had to work Saturday but it was no sweat at all, very mellow day it was. When I got home Dave and I had a campout in our backyard! I've always wanted to do it but never got around to it. So we set up the tent in the hut in the backyard had some BBQ and some corona's and chilled with some music. It was great! I should have took pictures but I was just so relaxed to worry about pictures. I'm sure we'll do it again too. I slept like a baby, although I woke up a couple times because I could hear crunching leaves and things moving around in the trees. I'm sure they were possum's, possibly cats. Sunday just chilled and Monday went to lunch with my mom. Had a great weekend!

the art of doing nothing

Right now is a bitter-sweet time in my life where I have the luxury of ME time. This past weekend all I really did was...nothing...and I enjoyed every minute of it! I lounged around the house, read, and ate. In the book Eat, Pray, Love the author talks about how we Americans really don't know how to do nothing. We need stimulation, entertainment,and to be productive. I can understand this, I've always needed to plan every second of my day to feel productive or to feel like I can relax afterwards.I think we need to slow down and take in the moments those are the sweetest!

Two great reads

So I am reading none other that two of the greatest books written. Eat, pray, love and Twilight! So far both are fantastic. Both suck you in just like a good book should. I like to read Eat, love, pray in the day and Twilight at night. I am very late on reading the Twilight book and my friend Iris let me borrow it. I love it. I can relate to the characters in both of these books.

the odds are against me

So the thing I've been stressed out for and so excited for is school. And wouldn't you know it the two classes I want to take are full. And I'm taking FULL. Class is full, waiting list is full and I just have to show up and pray and hope just to get in! There are just so many obsticales in my way I have to overcome them. And I will.

Still pondering...

Still thinking of a budget friendly girls trip? The only place that comes to mind is Glen Ivy. The grounds look so nice with pools, mud baths, saunas. For $40 bucks a day plus I'm sure other fees apply it's not bad!

moments of clarification

Last night I unwinded at home in peace and quiet to help my mind and my back from so much tension I was experiancing yesterday. I've been told by friends and family that I am suseptable to other peoples feelings. I know this and I don't like it about myself. I think it started when I was very young. I remember witnessing my parents fight and I wanted to intervine and stop it. But I could not. I was so small, my voice was so insignificant and low they could not here me. After my parents separation I changed drastically...I was such a normal, happy, outgoing child with so much confidence. And I remember that changing about myself. I think that my parents didn't notice this because they were so busy dealing with their own issues. I can't blame them. I remember just feeling so sad, timid, and afraid of everything all the time. I couldn't make friends, my grades went down from outstanding to average. Now as an adult I still suffer from some of these issues but I am more confident and not afraid anymore. I always tell myself that I will not allow my children to ever go through so much pain and confusion. Being a kid should mean to be happy and carefree.

inspiring pictures

This is me facing the world in lovliness, kindness, beauty with open arms.

This is me turning my back to ugliness in the world, hate, crime, violence.
Nothing is wrong with me today but I feel very aware of other peoples emotions. There is a lot of conflict going on around me. I hate conflict. It sucks, it's the part of life I want to avoid the most. Unfortuanely I can't. I will stand tall and say "bring it on".

San Diego trip

We took another trip to San Diego. The kids were really looking forward to going there. They needed a nice summer trip before school starts. Nerissa at La Jolla beach. It was overcast but it was nice and warm anyway!
We made it to Old Town. I really liked this mural!
At the Zoltar machine. Nerissa liked her fortune but Tirso on the other hand did not...
At the Haunted Whaley House. There were hangings held there back in the day. And there is an eeery feeling when you are there I must say.
We went for a night walk around the Whaley House grounds.
Theres so many Old West style stuff in Old Town. I love it!
These are always a blast!
Woo hoo we love Old Town San Diego!

We also went to the San Diego Zoo!


The king of the jungle!!
HAHAHA! I love this pic! We're such goof balls!
