4. I love my friends and they do make my world a better place.
5. For me I think this applies to at least '2' people. The boy and the girl!
6. I felt this way yesterday working out for the first time in 2010..sad. ha ha
7. We love our Broccoli aka Roxy, even though she has chewed up 85% of my shoes

C*STEM Challenge Ambassador

Everyone is an Artist and an Engineer
  • Communication
  • Science
  • Technology
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
    Lauren was chosen out of a few select students in her school to attend the C*STEM Challenge kickoff at TSU. She is a GT student (Gifted & Talented) and in 5th grade.
This little girl never ceases to amaze me! She is so smart and you can tell she loves learning and school. Okay, well maybe she doesn't LOVE school but she is very accomplished and very focused. I am excited about all the opportunities that have come her way and at the age of 10.
The Challenge kicks off the countdown to the National Competition May 8, 2010 at the George R Brown Conventions Center. Lauren sat through an hour presentation and was given several handouts on the competition. She was excited to attend this kickoff in its college setting.
That makes me one happy Mom! I can not wait to see what great achievements Lauren will have in her future.

Cullen's Upscale American Grille

Very lovely place to go with a group of friends or with a Romance!
11500 Space Center Blvd. Houston, Texas 77059 281.991.DINE or 281.991.2000
Cullen's is located off Space Center Blvd and if you are not near that area let me tell you, this place is well worth your drive. Romance and I went there for our 1st (official) date and although we were there after the kitchen was closed, we still enjoyed some beverages and a great atmosphere. Upstairs they have a great big outdoor patio with a huge fire pit that just sets the mood to enjoy the person you are with.
They also have a live band @ Cullen's Live. Music was good although we didn't spend much time with the crowd. We will definitely go to Cullen's again.
When my family comes in to visit this will be a hot destination spot to take them.

Yolanda & Luis-2 Weeks Until the Big Day!

YFebruary 6, 2010Y
Yolanda & Luis
So Sweet Together
This weekend is crunch time for the preparation of their nuptials.

I still have to find my shoes and help Bridezilla with any last minute items..Really she hasn't been Bridezilla at all which is great. When she made the announcement that she was engaged and asked me to be a Bridesmaid my Inbox was soon loaded down with a "How to be a good Bridesmaid" handbook lol.

I thought to myself "OMG!" "What did I get myself into?" She has been very easy through this whole process but I am sure that now that it is getting down to the wire..the pressure is on. So I am reviewing my Bridesmaid handbook so I can take on whatever dilemma she may have in the next 2 weeks.

I can't wait for her big day! She really has found herself an amazing man!

Butta's Birthday Party (Censored)

Sara's Birthday Extravaganza January 16, 2010
We started out at Carol's house (Camp Director)
All the ladies
(Shawty, Lollipop, Lalo-Cha, Butta, Camp Director and Intern)

Butta & Lalo-Cha (Sara's 21st Birthday)

The Birthday Kids (Khahn's birthday party TBD)

Getting started, Sara knew we were getting a Limo, she just didn't know her man was upgrading to the Excursion. It was so nice and roomy.

Khahn and Mikey getting cozy

The "21" year old is already Double Fisting
& so it begins..the Limo was half the party. I agree with Sara, we should do that more often.

At AKA, our infamous birthday stop. Stopping here before we go to our other destinations is not a good idea, but for some reason we keep doing it. I guess we love Joe the bartender.

Just finished eating some awesome Sushi! Sara now has her button on her shoulder with some money! Way to go girl!

Romance & I
Outide of Monarch, isn't this a lovely spot for a picture.
I am not sure who the girl is in the boots? We picked up a few strays here and there. That happens when you are the life of the party. ha ha.

I hope you enjoyed your birthday party Sara. I hope we made up for all those years you got the shaft on your "after the holidays" birthday. We all had a blast. We made a few new friends, lost some shoes, cracked some ribs, had swollen eyes, bruises in roundabout places but we were in it to win it. Recovery time needed. Big thanks to our Camp Director who hosted the pick up and drop off spot. Had cake and decorations and of course breakfast!
