It's a joke right...seriously

I'm not a bad person. I'm good, I swear.

There are things that happen that are beyond my control. For example a bird shitting on me or me stepping in dog poop... as they say SHIT HAPPENS.
First let me explain. I live on the same property as my parents. For the most part it's OK. They drive me a bit crazy but they are my parents and I do love them. There are times where I have come home to find strangers sitting in my house with them. Oh Hi Mija.. this is cousin so and so and they are going to spend the night in your house. EXCUSE ME? Yes they are here visiting and we are wondering if they could spend the night..asking me this in front of the people..can I say no??!!! Yeah if you know me..I just smiled and swore it would never happen again. After these said cousins left the house I was going to have a word with my parents. Never happened. It's like this, I like to see my parents happy and for the most part I try and I mean TRY to be a pretty good daughter. My problem...I NEVER SAY ANYTHING.
So fast forward to tonight. I was out having dinner with some of my friends/teammates. I had 2 missed calls and 2 voice mails from my mom.
The first message "Mija, where are you? I need to talk to you. Call me back right away."
The second message "Mija, it's mom again. What time are you coming home? I need to talk to you?"
Well that sounded pretty serious don't you think? So I call my mom back.
Mom: "Mija where are you?"
Me: " I went out with Mark?"
Mom: "Where did you go?"
Me: "Mom we went out to dinner with friends."
Mom: "What time are you coming home?"
OK so now I am like what the heck is going on!!
Me: "In a while, why?"
Mom: "XXXX(name not provided to protect the innocent) has a table do you want it?"
Me: "Table? for what?"
Mom: "It's a real pretty table for your living room. Do you want it?"
What I consider pretty and what my mom considers pretty are two different stories.
Me: "Huh? Mom what if I don't like it"
I wanted to make it clear before I even saw it that I may not like it and prepare yourself and don't get mad. Like with clothes she always tells me, just try it on and if you don't like it it's OK. Trust me it's NEVER OK.
Mom: *heavy breathing through her nose* "Well once it's in your house you can do whatever you want to do with it!"
Me: "Well if I don't like it I am going to sell it at the Teams next garage sale."
Mom: "WELL... I am going to put it in your house and then you can do what you want with it."
ARGH... why didn't I say no??? ....see picture below.

It's a joke right? I have a pretty big living room and I can understand where my mom "might" think I would like this table.

I came home walk right to her house and said "OK mom where is the camera?? I'm on candid camera right? It has to be a joke! Why would you put that thing in my living room?"

She looked at me really sad and said, "You don't like it?"

No offense to anyone who likes this style of table but it's just not me. It is literally a 4 foot x 4 foot table. Maybe even 4.5 x 4.5 table. I don't know what my mom was thinking? Do I like it?? HELL NO!

I am still looking for someone to jump out of a dark corner and say... "SMILE YOU'RE ON CANDID CAMERA." It hasn't happened yet. What were my parents thinking? ...but..let me tell you this isn't the first time something like this has happened to me.

If you happen to like it and want me. it's yours FREE...

as if I could wait until I got home...yeah right.
During my lunch break I played with my digital downloads. I love these new kits!! Here are a few things I did.

Solitude - some of my friends think I am a little strange (or maybe it's that I'm too old) but I love stripped socks! I love to walk around the house in shorts and knee high stripped socks....anything wrong with that? I don't think so. Would my boys go out in public with me dressed like this? Probably not. To be honest I only wear them around the house yeah I am not ready to be locked up..not yet anyway. ;) So for now here you have it, my two favorite things in the world - my converse and my stripped socks (original color leprechaun green).


aaahhh love the boys..all three of them..well most of the time at least. Kind of sucks being the only WOMAN in my little family. They like to boss me around, but like I tell them I might be small but watch out I'm a former Marine and these hands right here are registered weapons. LOL. I wish.


STMC # 102 - Wake me up when September Ends

summer_has_come, originally uploaded by suzbucket.

Technically Summer is coming to an end... =( but thought I'd reflect on one of my best summer days. Food, carnival rides, cupcakes, and can't forget the giant hot dogs.

blah blah blah

Wake up, come to work, put on a happy face, I am here way to early. I decided to kill some time and play Bejeweled on Facebook. I really...really dislike this game. It is so darn addicting. The colors, the sound, it all sucks me in. In Yoga class I laid down, closed my eyes, all I saw were these bright squares and me in my head trying to create groups of three with them. Like I said the game just sucks you in. I've never been a big video game fan...but look at me now.. Like I said I really...really dislike this game. And since I was here so early today I decided to do some digital art kit shopping at All I wanted was some grunge looking frames. Really that is all I went in looking for, nothing more. I swear I wasn't going to buy anything else....then.... *sigh* I saw these digital kits. LOOK AT THEM!!! So me don't you think??

Graffiti Girl

Adelaide And Amelia

I have purchased other kits from the artist, Christine Honsinger, and have totally loved them. UUUMMM... I have ideas spinning in my head... aaahh how I miss my digital art.

and with that I am off.... it's time to clean my desk and get to business.

Weekend fun

OK take 2. I started this post yesterday but never got a chance to complete it. Crazy Busy ..that describes me right now....on to my blog post..........

If you call cleaning fun..then I had a blast this weekend. I finally got all my stuff moved over from my old scraproom to my new scraproom. The new room is actually a lot larger then the old one.I still haven't finished cleaning..but I am in no rush. As long as all my stuff has been moved over I will eventually organize everything. I just have to figure out a way to get Mark's weight set out of the room. Any ideas? and umm... if I could get his computer out of there too that would be great. Actually if I could just get Mark out of there that would be even better. Poor Mark he doesn't know what he got himself into when he agree to share an office space with me. Remember Milton from Office Space, how eventually he is stuck in a room with with no walls, nothing but his swingline stapler.hahaha

work in progress

Saturday morning I went on a small run with my team over at Santa Monica Beach. I swear I run with the best group of women ever. Group 5 is #1.... I'm the (insert the loudest laugh ever) pace group leader. It's more like they lead me, but it's awesome you know. I always chat about silly things and in the end it's like..hey we just did 6 miles how do you feel? It's always a wow moment. First 6 miles is always good, 10 miles is always better, 15 miles getting there, 20 miles is always the best. Can't wait to reach that milestone with them.

Saturday night I did something totally out of my comfort zone. I had received a facebook invite for a Calavera Fashion Show & Walking Altars fundraiser. Something different and totally called my attention. I convinced my cousin Espi, my sister Diana, and my new roommate/little sister Uri to join me. We drank some home made Sangria, ate some vegan Tamales and enjoyed some wonderful live music. All in all it was a great night! I can't wait for the fashion show now. For a special treat they brought in some artist from last years show. The costumes are amazing. I just can't imagine all the time it takes to create one of these. You'd have to see one of these in real life to know what I am talking about.


Sunday Night we headed out to Howl at the Moon in City Walk for Mark's cousins birthday party. I had never been and really enjoyed myself. I was telling a friend that all I got was one margarita .. because I am getting old and can't hold my liquor. LOL.

Camille's Bday

Monday.... all I wanted to do was lay in the pool. I had so much to do at home still that I didn't get a chance to head in there until something like 4:00 pm and by then it was getting chilly. =(

Well let me rephrase that...chilly for me. If it's 100 degrees outside but the wind is blowing and I'm in the pool, wet, then it's chilly for me.

So it was just me and my pear cider hanging by the pool. I wanted to freak my mom out and let her think I was drinking straight out of the bottle... lol it worked. I said Mom go ahead take a swig from it, she looked at the bottle and laughed because it was cider.

labor day 2009

Work is work. Changes are still happening and Iam thinking that maybe a bottle of cider isn't going to cut it anymore. I'm going for the hard stuff . . Boones Farm =)

Good thing, the weekend is almost here. Looking forward to some Margaritas and Taco's at my friend Anna's house this weekend. Saturday I am heading out to San Diego for a friends 40th Birthday. But before all this...looking forward to my butt kicking workout tonight.

Tuesday = Time to create

I'm not sure what has come over me today, maybe it's the stress from work but I came home in the mood to create.

Scrapping the Music Challenge # 101 - Mr. Blue Sky

What a fun song!!!! Here is my submission for this weeks challenge. Check out my alphas, brought to you by Mustard Moon! I found them the other day while I was cleaning out my scraproom. I am still finding some hidden treasures amongst all this mess. Pictures are from an evening out with friends. Love these women to pieces!!


A Gift....for Anna. =)

I've talked about this camera chipboard book before but here it is complete. Instead of using chipboard inserts I used some plastic I had laying around. I don't even know where I got it I said I am finding hidden treasures.

All of you attending Inspiration Unlimited can purchase your book here -> Camera Book.

I kept it simple but I really like it hope she likes it too.

and then because I was bored.....

I own one of those alterable coffee tumblers from Starbucks. I haven't changed the insert in maybe 2 years ago maybe, so I decided to change it today. I have this really cute Rusty Pickle paper (Accent Girl) that I've been itching to do something with.

and that is it...going to bed now.
