" you only live once that's motto nigga YOLO"

Listening to : Drake - The Motto


So, I guess I should let you guys know that I signed up for The Color Run in August. It's a 3 mile run, where they throw a whole bunch of colored powder on you and you end up looking like the rainbow. Haha. They have this Color Run tour all over the country and they're gonna be in Brooklyn. Thanks to my cousin Macy, she got me to sign up with her and her brother. We were supposed to be a team of 4+, but the tickets sold out quickly and my sisters and cousins didn't have a chance to sign up for it. =(

If you don't know what it is, watch this video...

Now, don't the people in the video look like they're having a ball? Well, I hope it's fun and I hope that no one gets powder in my eyes. That would just be terrible...for the people throwing the powder cause I will get all cranky pants on them. I'm only kidding. Haha. I am a little excited for it, but I'm scared that Macy and Mikey will totally outrun me! Haha. Yes, I know...that means I have to start preparing for it now. Don't worry...I will. But Macy, if you're reading this, you guys better wait for me! =P

"it's hard for me to have to be so strong"

Listening to : Colbie Caillat - Before I Let You Go


Hey guys! The past week or so has been very exhausting for me and my busy schedule has left me absolutely no time to blog. Well until now! Haha.

This past Friday we celebrated my mother's birthday with dinner to Red Lobster and then bowling with the family (minus my brother) at the local alley. My mom didn't get to play, but my dad had such a great time! He hasn't bowled in such a long time so he was a bit rusty. Then he got his groove back and did pretty well! He was actually disappointed we had to leave. I think we'll take him bowling for his birthday and we'll go earlier so we're not the last people there. Haha.

The following day, my siblings, Eric, and I headed to Atlantic City to celebrate my brother in law Angelo's birthday. We met up with some of my cousins and some friends and celebrated the night away. I haven't been to AC in a really long time. I think the last time I was there, I was too young to even gamble! Haha. So, it was nice to experience the boardwalk again and actually experience the bars and casino a little bit...aka watch other people gamble without getting kicked out. Haha. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I didn't take that many while we were there. Maybe I'll take some when we go back. =)

The next couple of days, I celebrated a few other birthdays with dinners with some family and friends.

Then yesterday, I attended a Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat concert at our local baseball park with some of my favorite people. Which explains why I'm currently listening to a Colbie song. =)  It was actually pretty awesome. Who knew that such big stars would come to my town out of all places?! Haha. I was so nervous that it was going to rain during the concert, but lucky for us, it didn't! It did get cold as the night progressed, but it's ok. I still got to enjoy it!

After the concert, we ran (because it was cold! haha) to the back of the stadium near the area where we parked the car cause we heard that Gavin DeGraw was by the tour buses signing autographs! And sure enough, he was! We stood by the fence for maybe 10 minutes or so until he came up to us! It was pretty cool! We exchanged a few sentences, he signed our papers, and that was it! I felt like such a groupie! It definitely took me back to my *NSYNC days. Haha.

And last a not least, I'd like to wish a few people a Happy Birthday!

Happy 4th Birthday to my nephew Max and Happy 1st Birthday to my niece Ella! You guys are too cute for words and I simply love seeing and playing with you guys! You guys always put a smile on my face! I cannot wait to see you this Sunday! I hope you like my homemade dragon hat! Haha.


Happy Birthday, Eric! The past few years, you taught me so much about life and myself and I can't express how thankful I am for everything you've done for me and my family. I hope you enjoy your vacation because you definitely deserve it! See ya when you get back.

"I dare you to let me be your, your one and only"

Listening to : Adele - One and Only


Hi guys!

I was reading my old blog today at work and I totally miss blogging. I was so honest in a lot of my posts and I miss it. I guess it was just easier with my old blog since I had control of who was able to see it. So, I've decided to stick with this blog in the meantime cause I'm too lazy to create something different or move somewhere else. I'm also going to try to go back to my old ways.

Anyway, since it is after midnight, I wanted to wish my favorite people, my mother and my cousin Macy, a very HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you both very much!

Mama, thank you for everything you've done for me. I appreciate all the hard work and sacrifices you've made for our family and I love you more than words can describe. You are so beautiful, inside and out, smart, and the best mother a daughter could ever ask for. I promise I will always try my hardest to make you proud of me. I can't believe you're 26 years old now...I mean you're my age! Haha!

Macy, I can't believe you're 21 years old today. I still remember you being this chubby little girl who always wanted to play with  me or my dollhouse. Haha. And now you've grown up to be such an intelligent and beautiful woman. I'm so proud of how far you've come in life and I will always be here to cheer you on. I love you and please be safe this weekend!  I'm sorry I can't be there to celebrate, but I promise we will celebrate next time we are together. Don't party too much!
