Queen Mary Dark Harbor

We ended up going to The Queen Mary to check it out. The original plan was to go to Knotts Scary Farm but the kids wanted to try something new!
We hit up the ship first! Since we got there pretty much right when it opened we didn't have to wait in line long at all. First we went into Containment. It was cool I think this one had a girl in a wheelchair that freaked me out!! We all stuck pretty close together.

2nd we went into the boiler room hellfire. It was cool and we saw Alex there!! He was doing a great job scaring us all the way to that bridge! It was cool walking on it. Scary when you realized how HIGH you really were! After that we went into Submerged. It was so awesome going through the pool area and finding Jessica there as the "lady who haunts the pool"! Also the little girl looking for her mom freaked me out!!
The costumes and make-up were done so nicely. They really did such a great job!
After that we went to The Cage. That was sooo damn cool! It was fun getting lost in that maze. It was so trippy! After that we went to The Village of the Damned. That was my favorite! We were so scared we like ran through the whole maze. I liked the set up. It was so creepy I felt like I was literally in a haunted house trying to get out for dear life! I just wish the let us take pictures in the mazes! It was a blast!

Enrique Iglesia's Concert!!

Thanks to Iris my mom and I got to go see Enrique Iglesia's at El Rey in LA. It was my moms birthday so I took her out for lunch then we went to the concert. We had a blast! My mom had such a great time she just loves concerts.
This is when he first came out it was pretty intense, he had two people open up for him so after they were done we were anticipating his appearance!
El Rey Theatre is pretty small so we got to see him pretty darn well! Let me tell you he was pretty damn hot!! He looks so well in person!!!
He had so much energy, his presence really lit the place up! Girls and guys for that matter were going wild!
He was sooo great with his fans I was really surprised how humble he was. He would sing then sign autographs and invited a couple people on stage with him to have some Grey Goose vodka shots with him!!!

I never considered myself a big fan of his but I do like some of his songs but after that night I really like him! His songs are very romantic.

I  was dancing and singing along too!

Later he got closer.
And closer....

And even more closer!

It was great! And it was open bar so that was a huge PLUS!! I had a Cape Cod, Rum and coke and my mom had a Tom Collins respectively!!!!
Now I want his CD's just so I can re-live that night!! Mom and I got home at midnight. It was fun to hang out with her and do something different.
P.s. I can't thank you enough Iris!!

The Secret

My co-worker Eduardo let me borrow his DVD "The Secret". I have heard of the book and knew a little about it. I saw half of it last night and I got to say it was very inspiring. Some of it is hard to believe because basically the secret is to be positive and you are in control of the universe. It's hard to be positive ALL of the time! I understand the point though...you create your own surroundings. If you want to think everything is going wrong for you chances are it will keep going wrong. If you are positive then good things will happen to you. You can have whatever it is you want if you really believe you can get it.
This morning I tried to apply it to my day by waking up and being grateful for what I already have. I kinda forgot and woke up grumpy but I had to coach myself to be positive. Let's see how the rest of the day goes!
