Fridays Letters!

Dear Mr. Burns, I love you! And I am very excited to spend a sunny weekend with you! Thank you for being such a sweet husband to me.  Its been so much fun watching my home videos from my childhood, even though I'm not in them as much as you'd like, you get to see me and my childhood in a whole new light! Its pretty funny and embarrassing at the same time!

Dear Miley, I hope your ready to get the workout of your life tomorrow, because you'll be walking a 5K with daddy and I!  I just hope I don't have to end up carrying you to the finish line :) You'll be looking super cute no matter what though!

Dear Walk-a-thon, I am pretty excited that Jon and I are participating in your event for my office.  Such a fun way to spend a Saturday morning AND raise some money for our clients in need! Double win!

Dear Sirius radio, You completely made my morning! Not long ago, I discovered the best station EVER on you, Pop 2K, which only plays music from 2000-2010, which completely makes my drives to and from work pretty fun and exciting.  But this morning, as I'm cruising on the freeway the "Thong Song" by Sisqo came on, OMG! Dance party and memories in my car! That song definitely put a smile on my face this morning, Thank you!

Dear 30th birthday, OMG, you are only 21 short days away! I cannot believe that I will no longer be in my 20's in a few weeks, sad!!! But I am super excited for my birthday celebration and feel so lucky that I have friends from Oregon coming down to help celebrate with me! Just remember, 30 is just a number because I'm never going to grow up! Like Avril Lavigne says "HERES TO NEVER GROWING UP!"

Friday's Letters

Dear Husband, Your reaction last night after the mini earthquake we had was priceless.  You were so cute running around, googling it, and talking about it over and over again.  I couldn't help but just laugh :)

Dear Miley, You are just too sweet and cute! How did I get so lucky to have such a sweet lil doggie like you?!

Dear Meagan, I got my goodies yesterday!!! I loved them! Thank you so much! You are so sweet and am so happy to have been connected with you!

Dear Meat, We have been broken up now for about a month and it feel SO good! But I have to admit, I was very tempted yesterday at dinner, watching Jon enjoy those carnitas tacos at the taqueria made me a little jealous.  But I will continue to be strong and stay away from you, thank you!

Dear Mom, I'm sad that I cant spend Mothers day with you this year, BUT ill  be seeing you next weekend and will have presents! I cannot wait!

Dear Home ownership, I cannot wait to be in your club! Ive been dreaming about this for a long time now.  I hope our talking with the lender brings us good news and that our meeting with the real estate agent on Sunday will be even better!

Dear Husband, I am so excited for this summer and all of the fun adventures we are planning!

So Embarrassing!

Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.

Jon and I are the roundup in 2009
In 2008, Jon took me back to his hometown of Pendleton, Oregon.  We were headed there for the towns big rodeo, the Pendleton Round up.  I was really excited because this was my 1st time going to a rodeo, and also because this would be my 1st time visiting the town and meeting his extended family.  The 1st day we went to the rodeo, I, being the city girl, decided to wear a dress and flip flops.  Our 1st stop was the porter potties.  After using one of the stalls, I come out and stand there, in the middle of everyone waiting for Jon to come out.  As I'm standing there, I see this lady walking straight towards me, and she DID NOT look friendly, so I was a little worried, like is she going to try and pick a fight with me??? As she gets closer, she leans in and whispers in my ear “Your dress is caught in the back” and walked away.  I stood there for a second, trying to figure out what she meant by that, and then it hit me! The tie on the back of my dress was caught in my underwear and I had been standing there with my butt out for everyone to see! I was SOOO embarrassed!!! Jon finally comes out, and I just grab him and walked away as fast as I could, laughing.  I could not believe it! Jon was so confused, so once we were a safe distance from everyone that saw my butt, I told him about it.  I still laugh about that, and now I always make sure my dress is completely down, as it should be, before I walk out of the rest room.

Oh and here is another one, Valentines day 2012... Link to that wonderful post here.

My life

Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)

I took this picture last week.  It was a beutiful day out, so Jon and I went on a bike ride to the park for a picnic.  I love moments like this with my husband, I love that we are not only husband and wife, but we are friends... best friends.

My advice

Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.......

Don’t worry so much about what other people think about you.  Do what makes you happy. 
I enjoy dressing up and being cute, and yea, sometimes I make look a little ridiculous, like above..., but I always ask myself? Do I like it? Does it make me feel happy and feel good? If it does, I wear it.  Who cares what other people think about me, as long as I'm happy with myself, that's all that matters.

What scares me...

Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of

Not becoming a mommy.  Even though Miley makes my heart happy, I would also love to be a mommy to a human baby..... Ill be 30 next month, time is ticking and it really freaks me out.

Losing my connection with my nieces and nephews.  I miss those kids SO much!! (even though some of them are not kids anymore) 

Not being able to own my own home with Jon

Someone from my family dying, especially my mom, or even my dad.  If my dad would pass away right now, I would hate myself for never speaking to him and trying to rebuild our relationship after so many years.

Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it

Couldn't agree with this any more! I love this quote because it is so honest.  This is the way I try to live my life everyday.  I am so thankful for the life that I have, even when I have my bad days.  Id rather have a bad day than no day at all.

Day 3 of the May challenge....

Things the make me uncomfortable........

I could probably go on and on about things that make me uncomfortable, but here my top 3.

Mustard, like I have a fear of it.  I can’t touch it because I feel like the smell will be on me forever.  Just thinking about it makes me shudder, ugh! When Jon eats it, I wont kiss him for a while afterwards, he usually has to brush his teeth or chew some gum.  And by the way, did any of you ever see the mustard episode of my strange addiction? I would have to change the channel when the previews would come one, the guy would rub that crap all over his face and brush his teeth with it, YUCK!!!

People standing too close to me when I’m waiting in line…. It makes me angry and makes me want to yell at them.  Personal space please???!!! It’s even worse when I move to get some space and they move closer! Get the hint!

Driving on the freeway, which I do every day of my life, but it still makes me uncomfortable, and I always take the quickest exit that I can to get off.  I just always imagine terrible things while driving on the freeway, and now living in California it makes it worse.  People drive CRAZY around here, and it freaks me out! I do feel a lot safer in my new car, but I still get really uncomfortable.  Oh and I get super uncomfortable when I’m driving on the freeway and there’s bumper to bumper traffic.  If I was a rich celebrity, I would NEVER drive, that would be awesome.  I don’t drive on the weekends unless I have to, husband hates that he has to drive everywhere.

I probably sound like a freak to you now, but really just writing this post makes me have a little bit of anxiety, expeically thinking about the 1st point…. Ugh! Gotta go!

Happy Friday!!!!

Something I'm good at....

Making people feel special and appreciated…
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always made my own cards, and notes, to give to people, whether it be a birthday card or just a lil card to say “hi! Thanks for being you!”  The few times that I have purchased a card to give, friends & family have responded by saying something about how they wish they had received one of my special homemade cards.
I think the reason behind homemade cards & notes being so special is because they are homemade, because believe me, sometime I had a card over and think to myself “Oh man, I hope they like it!” lol
You don’t even need anything fancy to make a special card.  The 2 main things you need is paper, duh, and some markers, of course you can always use stickers and all that other fancy stuff!
The thing that makes this so special is because you are giving this card or note to someone just out of the blue and who doesn’t love getting a nice lil note or card letting you know how awesome you are?

Here are some examples of simple notes and cards I’ve made for Jon that have been a big hit!

Story of my life.....

I was born in Los Angeles, CA.  I'm the 4th daughter out of 5.  I spent most of my childhood traveling to Mexico and spending my summers out there with my grandma.  At the age of 9 I became a big sister and I was not happy about it (But I love my lil sister now, lol).  I became an aunt by the tender age of 6, so my lil sister has 2 nieces and 1 nephew older than her… When I was 10 my dad decided to pack us up and move us to Portland, Oregon, which was a VERY hard transition! But he didn’t want us growing up around gangs.  My mom and dad separated at the end of my freshman year in high school, which was very hard for me to deal with.  I became really involved in my youth group, that was my escape and I loved it.  I got to experience so many amazing things with my church!  I tried community college after high school but it wasn’t my thing.  I moved out when I was 20 and lived with roommates or on my own until I met my wonderful husband. We moved in together in 2008, adopted our lil princess and got engaged in 2010, moved to Seattle, WA and got married in 2011, then moved to San Jose, CA in 2012… We have had a pretty busy 5 years together, and I wouldnt have it any other way :)
