It's still going through the healing phase and itching like crazy, but I really like it.

Date night with Mariah. Technically Mark and Mona were there, but I always like to say Mariah is all mine. Even though we lost and didn't get to see the movie we wanted to see it was still a great night. Love this girl!!

Look at this amazing birthday cake! My friend Georgina is the best ever for baking it and Delia is amazing for ordering it for me.
My friends are sneaky. A few people actually mentioned things where I caught on and I asked what party? What are you talking about? With the stressful week I had I kind of forgot about it and went about my week.
But you know what..I didn't get one but 2 .... yes 2 cakes on Saturday. I've mentioned Audrey on my blog before, she is one of the reasons why I continue to volunteer on Team in Training. Her mom made me a German Chocolate Cake that was to die for.
I am feeling really blessed this morning. Love my friends! They made this weekend extra special. THANK YOU!!!!!
Feeling like I should get out my magic mirror and say thank you to everyone.
Susie and Delia yeah you pulled it off..but really Melinda just happened to show up at Dolorosa's? HHUUMM... and the tattoo artist knew it was my birthday.. :D David...super fake boyfriend, LOVE YOU! Thank you to Georgina for making that amazing cake. Kelly and Tania..haha I saw you walk by and I knew something was up. April, I tell you each time I love you and I do. Raul and George..ahh you do love me. Tashia and Joe, lets hang out again I want to see Joe laugh some more. Becca, Becca, Becca, I LOVE YOU! Lauren and Jim, what can I say to the cutest couple I know..buy more white out! Bridget and Tyson, you both are so much fun to hang out with and I felt so honored to have you both next to me the whole evening. Audrey, your friendship means more to me than you will ever know. Each time I want to throw in the towel you amaze me and push me into being a better person. And last but not least... Mark ... SUCKER .. trying to piss me off during the day and then you threw me off by being the best boyfriend ever! What am I ever going to do with you?

Yesterday I was blog hopping and ended up on Cheryl Manz Ametewee blog, I'm sure all my scrapbooking friends know who she is. She had these amazing picture frames and cute camera die cuts well I had to get them. Come to find out they are designed by Danielle Thompson, another one of my favorite designers. Check out her stuff here. Totally adorable right!
Here is my attempt at digital scrapbooking. It's been a while and I so miss it.

Me and my aunt. Brings tears to my eyes seeing her now. A month ago she was still able to hold a slight conservation, now all she does is nod and she has a slight smile on her face. Prayers..that is all I ask for.
It's all very funny how it started.
First it was with me wanting to take silly pictures. Then I would tell someone on the team. STOP. Now walk to me and JUMP. I would say please and smile and yes they did it for me.
Raul here is a great sweetheart. So I can't remember who I gave my camera to first but they just couldn't capture the jumping pictures of us. So we tried this hand holding picture and tried jumping...didn't work out so well. People don't know this about me but I am very clumsy. One moment Raul and I are running, holding hands, jumping...the next I am doing this twirl thing and landing on the floor. Yeah you had to be there.

Close your mouth... I know it's a simple layout but I did it I scrapbooked. I haven't had any "umph" to do it lately. My stuff is scattered all over the place and I needed some inspiration.
Here is me and my bestie in the whole wide world...April. We have been friends since maybe 2003, meet through a scrapbooking group and became instant friends. I have seen her through the good and bad times and it's just being there for her that has made me admire her even more. She went from having cancer, to being the most beautiful pregnant woman, to now being the most beautiful mom to a wonderful little girl. April Thank you for always being there when I needed you most.

It's been a while since I've attended bootcamp. I went tonight and tried to pull the doctor's note excuse. LOL. I think it's more like I laugh at myself and make jokes because well I know I am going to look like an idiot doing most of not all of the moves. It's me and how does my friend Chely say it "It's part of my charm." Love it.

There is something about Gift Cards and on-line shopping that I just love. I got a Nordstorm gift card from my cousin Santiago and his family for my birthday. It just so happened that yesterday morning I got an email from Nordstorm showing off their latest swin suit styles. I couldn't resisit I went on line and found the cutest suit!
I admit..I am a shop-a-holic.

My son said I am going through this mid life crisis with my need for tattoos. It's not a phase I swear. I love them and I want one more that's it. This is what I wanted, but not to sure now.
