Just For Laughs: School

"Oh homework, oh homework
I hate you, you stink
If only a bomb
would explode you to bits
Oh homework, oh homework
I hate you, you stink"

Wow...not very nice huh? hahaha.

Believe it or not that is a poem I read duing the morning announcements at school when I was in 5th grade. Sounds like someone didn't like school huh? Pretty strange for a girl who loved school so much she went all the way as to graduate college. This doesn't make sense at all :}

We were televised for the entire school to see and it was my turn to read a poem. You see, we would take turns doing various jobs such as work the camera, say the weather ect. It was my class's turn and when it came my turn to read a poem....I chose this one? I remember this day as if it were yesterday. I was an A, B student loved school, was very diligent, took school matters very seriously, hardly missed a day, loved a great challenge otherwise known as test...except when it came to math..which is not my cup of tea but I can do it if I put my mind to it. Why oh why this poem??? lol. I can totally see my teacher Mr. T's face thinking, "oh no...not one of my best students. What is she thinking? What is she doing? After all the time I've invested on her? I hope the Principal's not watching. Uggghhh there goes my reputation and maybe even my job" hahaha! I ask myself from time to time..."why that poem?" I mean ya have to admit it is funny but not very loving and def not the best message. Specially coming from someone who loved school. The only thing I can think of is...I wanted to be cool hahaha! Honestly, it felt weird reading that poem but it got me out of my comfort zone that's for sure.

On that note...I was always into school. I loved a good challenge. Have never cheated on a test (even though my hubby cant believe it lol) because I wanted to prove to myself that I was very capable of passing my tests..all by myself. I loved learning and loved to shared what i learned. I see my hubby doing hw now and it gives me the urge to want a challenge lol. Manuel thinks I'm crazy but some of us are created with the passion for books. Ooooh boy...does this make me a nerd? I better look for another "cool" poem lol j/k. I loved the process of preparing for a test..I had a system pat down to helped me get straight A's. Unfortunately that system didn't come to me right away but when it did...I was on fire...Aced every single class from there on in college;D Let me tell you though that I don't get the credit...God gets ALL the glory because I did go through several trials where I could in college where I could have given up yet the Lord helped me stay focused and succeed! It's unbelievable that during one of the hardest times in my life including almost loosing my dad to cancer....the Lord lifted me up and helped me graduate college with Highest Honors 3.7 GPA as a Clinician Medical Assistant. Now THAT is God!!!!

So...there is it...btw...I do LOVE homework and if you want to know where I got this wonderful's from one of my fav books..."There's A Light In The Attic"

Below are a few pics of my special day:

Yeah!!!! What an accomplishment;D

It felt so good to share this important event in my life with wonderful friends....that row of beautiful women in my life!

with my beautiful husband who has been there through thick-n-thin and has always lovingly supported my dreams and aspirations. He was my #2 fan (God was my #1) and cheered me on! I love him soooooo much;D

With my amazing friends who were there for moral support and loved on me<3

Disney...Had a Magical Day!

A couple of weeks ago, we noticed the weather was very nice..sunny with a cool breeze and decided to go for a walk. We headed over to Downtown Disney also known as Disney's Marketplace. The company I worked for Arribas Bros. (crystal shop) has a store here (and 4 others in the parks). The downtown Disney store is where I worked my first 2 1/2 years in the company. Downtown Disney is pretty much where you can go shopping for Disney merchandise, they have many stores. You can also dine there at places such as Rainforrest Cafe and Wolf Gang Puck,Fulton Crab House, Planet Hollywood and Gloria Estefan's Bongos. you can visit the many outdoor vendors, ride a lil boat, watch a movie, dance the night away, grab some ice cream, watch a concert at House of Blues, building a castle at Legoland or buy music cd's at Virgin Records. There's something for everyone! We went into the store I worked, it had been a long time and was happy to recognize alot of the employees! They all worked with me. Coolest thing was to take my daughter to the store I worked at as a teen anger! It was truly a beautiful day outside. We missed the big thunderstorm thank God and enjoyed great music, sugary pretzels yum, refreshing lemonade and a warm hot dog! We also got to goof around at the World of Disney store trying on hats...something I always envisioned doing with my family! Our day turned out amazing which by the way....was not planned! I am becoming more spontaneous something I've picked up from my husband and I'm loving it! We ended the day with a delicious meal at Sweet Tomatoes! Didn't spend a whole lot and yet our day was fantastic! When you make the best of every thing you find yourselves truly best!

Here's a few pictures of our wonderful adventure....

This is ow much she loves Minnie<3 I won this in one of those machines that you put a quarter and have to move the "arm" around to hopefully grab something. Funny thing is....I said it would be for my daughter when I would have one and didn't know I was already pregnant...and expecting girl!!!

She Is A Natural

One of the beauties of being a female is not only of being blessed with the privilege of carrying life inside our womb but also being blessed with milk to nourish our babies. Well looks like a lil someone is very aware of the role she will be laying one day Lord-wiling and decided to get a head start.....

She grabs her baby by the hand...

and she gets right to work...

(with the "May I help you..can you see I'm busy?" look on her face hahaha!)
