Hump Day Happies....

I Like my hump day happies because it makes me think about the positive stuff that is going on in my life...even when I don't feel too positive.  It's good times really.

I am happy that my friends for over half my life made it to my PAR-TAY* on Saturday.  I've known these girls since Middle School.  They rock.

Drea, Me and Sher Bear.

*I will go through the rest of the pictures from the various photographers before posting more party pics.  I am hoping there are more pictures that don't include me playing beer pong, taking shots, dancing with my hands all up in my hair or dropping it like it's hot.  Cause please trust that I can drop it like no ones bizness. :D  I would hate for you all to get the wrong impression! haha!!

I am happy that my body finally feels better from the 4.5 hours I spent on the bathroom floor on Sunday morning....hugging the toilet. Yes I was irresponsible and got hammered. But that was way back when I was in my 20's.  I know better now. :D  

This is WAY before it got bad.  I still have a bit of a smile on my face.  I was able to put my hair up in a bun on my own too.  Thanks My Rock for capturing this magical moment.

I am happy that my lovely sister, my kiddos and my weekend kiddos (including the poor innocent Alexis) broke into my home at Midnight on my birthday to surprise me and shower me in rose petals and balloons.  I'm sorry I wasn't prepared and "surprised" you all back in my sexy PJ's. hahaha!

My hallway floor after the rose petal and balloon shower.

I'm happy that HG is the Mexican Betty Crocker and made me a bomb a$$ cake.  Isn't it beautiful?  The waitress at Shogun dropped a plate on it (see at the bottom?) and I'm pretty sure HG almost shanked her....lucky for the waitress there were only chopsticks on the table.  The cake was moist. heehee.   

I'm happy that in less than 34 hours I get to say goodbye to 2009 cause she's been a real bitch.  Yeah I said it. I'm allowed. I'm 30 remember? :D

Here it is for the last time in 2009 (dude we're starting a new decade!!)

Thirty, Flirty and Thriving

Today is the big day!  I'm now 30! WOW!  I was pretty nervous about turning 30 for a while.  I just remember 30 being SOOOO old.  Now that I'm ain't so bad! 

I am blessed to have lived these 30 wonderful years.  I've known joy and sorrow, laughter and tears, victory and defeat. I've broken hearts and had my heart broken.  I've been hurt and I've hurt others.  I've lost some people I love, but created memories to last a lifetime. I've lost a baby and I've been blessed with babies. I met and married the love of my life.  I've made it through a lot.  It's made me who I am today.  Here I am 30 years old and I couldn't be happier!   

This is me circa 1980.  Bad haircut and all.  See even back then
I wanted to be a mommy. :D

I'm 5 here. The hair is a little better at least. Rockin' the Jordache...don't hate!

Here are my Senior pictures.  It's the same standard pose that ALL schools did here in the 90's (and 80's and 70's...just sayin') My hair is a mess again. 

HOT MESS!! :D  But kisses to you all!! 

WOOHOOO 30!!!!!!!

Hump Day Happies....

This will be ANOTHER boring and random post!  I'm so very sorry!  You know with the Holidays and work and life...I've sucked at blogging lately.  I mean really sucked.  I will soooo make it up to you all, I promise!  I have plenty of upcoming shenanigans.  With Christmas and my Birthday and soon having no job to keep me busy. :D  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared of that last little part.  Cause I am.  It's what I wanted for a long be home with my kiddos and be a full time wife and mommy.  But it's scary to think of living on one income. I hope we can do it for a while.  

The timing is right too cause I'll be home to spend time with my sister.  My sister just found out she has cancer.  It's scary because we've lost so many we love to this dumb disease.  But my sister is strong, young and a fighter.  She will fight and she will win.  We have love and faith.  I was watching my all time favorite movie, Return to Me,  yesterday and I heard this quote "It’s the character that’s the strongest that God gives the most challenges to, so you should take it as a compliment"  It made me smile. God is amazing and I know that with our prayers everything will work out as it should.  

Now on to the Happies! 

My Rock put the Angel on our lopsided tree.  Can you tell where I stopped the lights and someone else started? haha. I love our big crazy, mismatched, ghetto tree! It makes my house smell like Christmas!

        This is Buster.  He is a pain in the bootay.  But he loves us and we love him.  He is an outside dog...but last night he came in..I think he knew I was sad. I love him.

She loves to cuddle.  We have "cuddle time" every night.  I worked late and came home to find I was replaced.  I didn't mind. They make my heart swell.

My Best Friend Lizzy is well...the best.  I couldn't ask for a better friend.  She is always there. To laugh with me or cry with me.  And to make sure I am having a blast at our tailgates before the game. :D

Speaking of tailgates...this is part of our "D4 Crew".  We all tailgate together before games. There are a lot of people missing in this picture. Can you find me?

Mas Guapo!! I love Christmas sing-a-longs at school.  I love that my Little Rock likes to dress up.  I love that he was so excited that he was ready 1/2 an hour early. :D  

This is a crappy picute of a picture.  I didn't scan it cause I am lazy.  It's from the 80's can you tell?  That's me with my Mom and my Daddy on New Year's Eve.  Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of his passing.  I still miss him like crazy.  But looking at this picture makes me happy.

Christmas is in two days!! YAY!!!


What are you happy about?

30 by my 30th?

I am exactly 2 weeks away from my 30th B-day.

I hear 30 is the new 20...but srsly? I just remember thinking that 30 was SOOOO old. Yet here I am. With all my hair and walker yet.  

 I had said I didn't want to celebrate my birthday.  I made my bestie, my Mama and My Rock promise no party. They were mad...but respected my wish.  

However, I've now seen the light.  I've lived 30 healthy, happy, fulfilling, loving, wonderful years!  It's something to celebrate. For me AND my loved ones.  Who am I to tell them they can't celebrate my life...when they ARE my life! DUH!!  

Shenanigans will ensue.  I am sure of it.  And if nothing else, it will give me something to blog about.  :D 

So here is my Bloggy Birthday wish.  I wish to have 30 followers by my 30th B-day.  If it works I also wish to be skinny by then too! :D

Hump Day Happies....

So I tried to post a blog from my phone yesterday (FAIL) cause the internets have not been my friend. I'm over it.

On to the Happies!!

We went Christmas tree shopping with the kiddos.  They loved it and we were out of there in less than 30 minutes. HOLLA!! :D

Here is our tree.  It sat light less for 3 days.  Then was 3/4 of the way wrapped in lights....then we ran out.  Bigger house + bigger ceilings = bigger tree = need more lights.  My Rock got them yesterday and finished up the tree for us.  He Rocks! (pun intended)

This is my best friend.  She is a beautiful person.  Inside and out.  I on the other hand am TIPSY in this picture.  Just sayin'

End of the night. I kinda remember taking this picture.  I loves him.

 Leaving the bookstore.  They love each other and I caught it on camera.

She is 10!!! Double digits baybee!!

What are you happy about?

December Birthday Club.....

Awesome people are born in December.  I mean it's just a fact.  The babies are cuter too.  My mom told me so.  

When I was doing my daily blog surfing I noticed that Uptown Girl had this:

Apparently she is an adorable December baby as well.  She wants us all to RSVP for her month long birthday celebration.  I'm all about month long celebrations.  But seeing as how I have many people I love born in December I must include them all.  

So I am RSVPing for the celebration of  

My Baby B*
My Sol*
Jesus (yeah THE Jesus)
Me!!! *

Isn't that a lot of Birthdays?  I told you December was awesome!  Are you part of the club?

You have 26 shopping days left until my BIG B-day celebration.  I'll work on my wish list now. :D

* - We are the M Family Trilogy.  We are the cutest babies ever born to our familia and we are all 10 years apart to the month.  December '79, '89 and '99.  HOLLA!

Four Photographs

I just love playing tag! I love being tagged. And my New BFF, mah sista from another Mista, Alexandria tagged me. I feel oh so special!
So here are the Rules.

1. Choose a photo that makes you cringe like hell.

We look so awkward. Look at my Rock's face. Look at my fake smile. Look at my "plumpness". I'm glad the apron is hidding the rolls cause then I would be super duper sad. Seriously I cringed. 2010 will be the year of the Alice Makeover. I need to lose about 1,000 pounds and this pictures reminds me of that fact.

2. Choose two pictures that you could stare at all day long.
I Love my family. Dang we're a good lookin' bunch. haha!! Seriously I have this picture on my desk and I really do stare at it all day. Fake Smiles or not. They are my whole world.

Yes I've brought it up like 5 Billion times. I is in love with Jacob's abs. I could stare at them ALL day. I'm gonna blow up this picture and tape it to my treadmill....just outta reach so I can be motivated by yumminess.

3.Choose one picture that shows your dreams and aspirations, or that holds a place on your 'bucket list'.
I want to travel the world. Ok well not the whole world. But I do have a lengthy list of all the places I would like to go. I'll have to write them all out one day and get them in order so if my Rock ever wants to surprise me with a trip he'll know where to take me. Or if any of you want to take me on a trip. :D

4. Link four bloggers-and tell why they inspire you.
-Heather from HERE
Her Blog title is way long. :D She has a sidebar with the random comments I've made while out to lunch. I think half of them are made up. I can't be that bad can I?

-Sarah from Color Plaid.
She makes me laugh everytime I read her blog. She was my first "follower" who I didn't know in real life.

I miss her so! Her crazy ways and her laughs full of snorts. She needs to blog lots more so I can laugh and snort all day long. Plus she has the cutest baby eva. (Besides mine of course) heehee
-Amber from Amber's Inner Mind
This just in...We're December babies. Everyone knows that December babies are the cutest. Just sayin'.

Ready, Set, Go!!!!
