Started celebrating last Wednesday...I met up with some ex co-workers at Guadalajaras for Happy Hour. We got together to say farewell to an ex boss who will be leaving the city to begin a new journey. Good Luck D!

We will always have "Pretty Woman" lol

The next day (Thursday)the celebration continued because it was my sis in-laws b-day!!! Happy Birthday Debbie!!!

Since we partied Thursday night, this was me at work Friday...

and after work I slept until the next day...

Saturday we decided to take Ethan to the Rodeo Carnival. It was a beautiful day and my boy had a great time...The petting zoo was kinda scary for him but he tried a few times to get over his fear...The little goats weren't so bad.

Later that night "O" invited us to a comedy show to see Joey "Coco" Diaz and Phillipe or Felipe Esparza and I swear...My hubby and I hadn't laughed that much and that hard in a long time...We so needed that! Thanks Philly!

After the Comedy show we went to "B's" to listen and dance to Tejano Music! David Lee Garza was performing...Hubby and I danced ALL night long!

We spent Easter Sunday at my sis in-law Doras House. She had an Easter Egg hunt for the kids and it was soooo much fun to watch them. Did I mention we pigged out too?!!! Afterwards we went to my mom and dads just to pig out some more...

Needless to say I had a non-stop "GREAT" and memorable time with "Awesome" Friends and Family!!!! And THANKS BRO and NINA for watching my son Saturday night and for helping him make Easter eggs for his "non-stop partying mama and dada!!!!!" hahaheeheehoho

The Boy

The other day Roy and I were in our bedroom while Ethan was running around playing. Suddenly Ethan walked in and said,"The boy scare me momma." Roy and I looked at each other like, "WTH?!" and I asked, "What boy?" He said, "The boy in Lily's room". He calls the front room "Lily's room" since she use to stay there. Curious, I said, "Show momma where." And when we walked toward the room I asked, "Where is he?" and he pointed in the room and said, "Right there!" I told him that I didn't see anything and he said, "The boy sleeping in Lily's room." I asked him what the boys name is but he just shrugged his little shoulders and said, "I don't know." Ofcourse, it freaked me out and my heart was racing! I mean can he actually be seeing something that I can't? I finally told him to tell the little boy to go away when he sees him.

A couple of nights ago, I had a nightmare and this is how I remember it...
Roy was in the bedroom and I was putting Ethan to bed. Ethan then says to me that he has to "go potty" so I walked to the guest bathroom but for some reason I walked in without turning on the lights. I looked in the mirror and I see an image of a little boy...It was a dark image...I could see his figure and he had a white shirt and dark blue shorts on...but I couldn't see his face!! I was so terrified that I screamed and yelled for Roy and as I tried to get away I somehow tripped and fell in the hallway!! When I looked toward our bedroom searching for Roy, the door was closed!! I could hear Roy on the other side of the door cussing, trying to open it to get to me but he couldn't. Ethan was still in his room. Realizing that I had to do something, I became brave...Still on the floor I crawled back to the bathroom to look in and there he was...he wasn't in the mirror anymore, he was closer to the doorway. Again, I couldn't see his face but I could tell he was around my niece Paty's age which is 7. Even though he was little I was so scared that I couldn't get any words out!!! With my heart beating fast and my voice trembling I finally said, "Get don't belong here...leave this house now..."

Things that make you go HMMMMMM?!!

Yellow Butterfly at it again...

small yellow butterflyA "yellow" butterfly landed on hubby's shoulder today...When he called to tell me I couldn't help but tear up and smile...

I e-mailed my bro and told him about the "yellow" butterflies that we have been witnessing and this is what he said...
"When we got back from Piedras (Loly's funeral)…. A couple of days later I was walking at the park…I was thinking a lot about Loly.…between the first quarter mile and ½ way mark of the park…a yellow butterfly flew next to me as I walked. I looked at it and smiled and said "Hey Loly!"….it stayed with me for a while until it left.
I guess it was her way of telling me/us bye.

Been 6 months…and I don't think I have seen a butterfly since then…miss her? Yup."

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the song "Breath" by Breaking Benjamin but WTH does it mean?? I have my own version of what it means but I don't know if I'm right. I have tried looking it up on line but everyone else has a different opinion on what it means. The video is just of them "live" in concert. Anyway, he has so much passion in his voice which makes it my favorite song at the moment...It's on my playlist if you want to hear it, just click on it! Here are the Lyrics...


I see nothing in your eyes, and the more I see the less I like.

Is it over yet, in my head?

I know nothing of your kind, and I won't reveal your evil mind.

Is it over yet? I can't win.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I'm going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you.

This will be all over soon.
Pour salt into the open wound.

Is it over yet? Let me in.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I'm going all the way, get away, please.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you.

I'm waiting, I'm praying, realize, start hating.

You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you

Breaking Benjamin Icon

My version of this song...
She hurt him, which now makes him question who she really is.
He loves her but hates her at the same time.
He wants to be with her but he is warning her that she is going to have to "fight" to make it work and he is not going to make it easy for her...

My Butterfly!

Today would of been my beautiful aunts birthday. She would have turned 56. Ironically, it is also exactly 6 months since she past away...

We were both named Loly and even though I was bigger, people would call her Big Loly (Grande) only because she was older. I of course was the little Loly (chiquita)...
The day she past away, I remember seeing a beautiful yellow butterfly flying by me. It caught my attention and I of course thought of it as if it were her being around me...well, when I got home today, to my surprise a Yellow Butterfly surrounded us as we made our way into the house!!! I picked up my son and we stood there as this butterfly just kept flying by us. It would get so close as if it wanted to land on my son and it did this several times! He would even flinch every time it got near!!! We were so tickled by this and it warmed my heart to think that "maybe" it was her trying to make us smile on her birthday! Or just a BEAUTIFUL Coincidence!!! Either way, it was nice...

I miss you "Loly"! Thank you for being so AMAZING, LOVING, CARING and so much more during your time here with us...even on your last days, you never stopped showing your beauty...

Everyday, I get the pleasure of traveling to and from work (car pool) with a group of interesting, unique people. There are four of us (sometimes five), one guy and the rest women. Every morning and evening is an adventure…We never know what we are going to witness…
Will we see the news crew from channel 13 again? You can just picture us sticking our heads out the window, waving trying to be a part of it!!!
Sometimes we see the crack head girl that O thinks would be so pretty if she only curled her hair and wore make-up ~ Of course R says, “Yes, she can be in the Crack Head beauty pageant”.
And there is this bum that O and I always look for in the mornings under the bridge. He sometimes just lays there and we wonder if he is asleep or dead and the times we don’t see him, we begin to worry...wondering where he may be!
We rarely have any drama…I’ve always said that I don’t need to have road rage because they all have enough for me…and when one of us has a tough day, we all enjoy a nice cold beer after work.
We are very open and talk about anything and everything! Even though there is a guy around, nothing is going to stop us women from being WOMEN! If you are a dude, you may envy him, he is after all surrounded by beautiful women (inside and out) BUT on the other hand “Code Red” is apart of our lives and he has to deal with that as well…What guy on earth wouldn’t want to learn what women want? Then again he is learning that what we “want” changes on daily bases.
I’m still trying to think of a name for our little group but so far “Crack Head Car-Peeps” is the only thing that comes to mind...

Introducing the crew…

Miss you N!!!

Welcome V!

Two helicopters in the middle of the street...interesting...
