Day 9 - A photo of the last item your purchased.

~Memory Foam Mattress Bliss!~
I am sleeping like an angel on a marshmellow cloud.
It is reversible too. One side Egg Crate effect is like a mini massage the other side Firm Comfy Bliss. OMG the best money I have spent in quite some time.
I have also bought a mini Vacation Package to Las Vegas. I am going in less than 2 1/2 weeks. My dear, awesome, sweet friend Sara is going with me and we are meeting my little sister Crystal there. Awesome!!
I have also booked my flight to PHILLY! Carla and I are looking to do a Memorial Day long weekend road trip. Look out Philly, New York, Rhode Island and Boston! We plan to leave our own landmarks. So excited!! 6 days with Pea aka Carla. It will be one major laugh fest indeed.
Also looking for tickets to go to Vail, CO second weekend in June with my sweet friend Oanh. We have a beautiful mountain top home to call ours for a long weekend.
The following weekend is off to my hometown to go to my baby sister's baby shower! FUN FUN FUN! I can't wait to see my sister preggers! She is a doll. Pictures to come soon.

Day 7 - Your dream wedding

My dream wedding would definitely take place at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, CO. This place is just beautiful and screams romance. If I fly home to Colorado I try my best to book a nights stay here. It isn't cheap but it is worth feeling like a princess for a day or so. If you are ever in the area you MUST check it out. Pictures do not do it justice that is for sure.

I would of course want all my close friends and family members there and I would want the day to unfold as it should. I would hope that I would not be a Bridezilla. I don't have that personality type at all. The day would naturally be perfect just being there so there would not be a need to stress about how the day went. I am happiest here and if I was with the man who had the balls to marry me and all those people who love us, it would be perfect.
At this moment I like these colors. That could change tomorrow though.

Here is to finding my next Mr. Chavez! lol

Day 6 - A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

Roxy girl... We sure wish we knew what happened to her. She was so sweet and such a good dog. How I miss her.
To this day, I still look for her when I am driving home. Everyday, everytime I drive in or out of our neighborhood. Where ever she is I hope she is happy.
Since we lost her last summer I would honestly have to say that I have no interest in another pet.

Katy Perry- I Think I'm Ready [With Lyrics] Part 2 of Day 3 MEME

Coming:Day 4 - Your favorite photograph of your best friend

Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date.

It has been too long since I have been on a date. So my perfect date would be ANY DATE. lol

First dates for me need to be short and sweet. A meeting at a cafe or the beach. Must include comfortable conversations, witty banter and no ex-wife, girlfriend talk. Simple enough..right. Oh one would think. I like this post because I think I am going to get back on the market.

Maybe more to come. You remember my last experience with dating. (<---click here!)

Any 1st date that doesn't end with "I live with my parents" works for me. The past 3 guys I have dated lived with their folks. COME on guys, get it together!

Day 2: A photo of something you ate today.

OMG, here I am! I am sorry boys and girls. Weekend and everything else can throw me off schedule.
Today I had KING CAKES all around me. Seriously, it isn't like someone emailed me and said, Hey Lalo, there is king cake in my office, or when I went to warm up my Healthy Choice meal, there weren't 4 boxes of KC's all lined up, forks and plates smiling at me. I am at my desk and my neighbor brings me cups full of none other than KING CAKE. SMH..help!
Now I am home and I have eaten my cheese and crackers and the kids are anxiously waiting for the Jambalaya to be ready. So I figured I better make the mad dash for the computer to type up this post. So hear you go. Some pictures of "THINGs" I ate today.
I never follow the rules.
Carbmaster Yogurt with Kashi cereal *crunch crunch yumminess* banana is still at desk and the orange was a tad bitter. Bleh!
Jambalaya~Happy Fat Tuesday
I will be serving this with a fantastic salad. Delicious. Gotta go!
TOMORROW: Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date.

Day 1 - A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.

Welcome to Day 1 of the 30 day Meme challenge.

Yep, there you go: A photo of Lalo! =)
My Day:
That is a tough one. It started out pretty good. The kids woke up without a hitch. The girl didn't miss her bus (as she has done all week) and the boy has his ride back in order (the girl he rides to school with had a broken foot and has missed a couple days of school). It is such a pain in the rear to take them to school. It is not that I mind but traffic is pure torture. Well that and I am riding "dirty". No, I don't drive without car insurance but I do have an expired Inspection sticker. Ugh, I really need a personal assistant to handle these types of things. One day I will get that taken care of. Date of sticker: 10-2010. LOL
I got to work, had a meeting. Possibly learned something so that was cool. Free breakfast 'celebratory' tacos. Ugh, so of course I ate one. Potato, Egg and Cheese. Not my usual egg whites. Oh well. I was a little discouraged about some directions received re: my new area to work on. Apparently the team I will be working on is HOW DO YOU SAY... sweet on the girl who use to handle that area. So basically I was told that she will handle working with the team and I am the lease biotch. ha ha. One more thing I have to prove to the higher ups. I am capable of talking to our division offices.
Then we had a department meeting with none other than cupcakes. Yay for Lalo on passing on those sweet treats. I was still digesting that taco from the morning. Also congratulations are in order for SD, who won our quarterly meeting co-worker challenge. I had no idea she knew so many random facts about the people on our floor. LOL Someone has been having secret happy hours with the 1st quarter employees?!? Hmm. JK Steph.
After work I met up with Sara & Carol. I haven't seen Carol since early January so it was good to see her and catch up. We met at "The Tasting Room" their new location in Town & Country aka City Centre. It was very nice and open. We had dinner at Cyclone Anayas and spotted Rod Ryan (from 94.9 the Buzz-my favorite morning show). I was a respectable fan and I let him enjoy his evening off duty. I was too busy laughing with the girls about some of my recent ski trip adventures. I am sure more of those stories are to come. Some good stories indeed.
I came home to 2 happy kids who ate left over pizza for dinner from the night before. Like a good Mom I planned ahead knowing I would be home a little later than usual. After getting all my hugs and kisses I sat to start this post.
I am struggling a bit to be a creative writer, not that I can confirm if I ever was one, but here it is.
If I had to rate my day on a scale of 1-10 I would have to give it a 7.
It wasn't a bad day but I have had better.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. Maybe the next man of my dreams. LOL
Good night bloggers and fans!
Oh, I can't forget to mention that a sweet blogging buddy of mine Steph is going to make me something special for my little nephew. I am so excited to see her work. Thanks again Stephanie.

Beautiful Baby Boy
~Aiden Bryce~
DUE: July 10, 2011
Above is a plaque from Aiden's Nursery theme!

Tia Lalo has been shopping!
Cupcake Designs (onesies and wash clothes..so cute)

AWE! I love baby stuff.

Thanks to Stephanie for sharing websites (for shopping) with me. My PayPal account is going to be exhausted! lol

I found it neat that my sister picked the name "AIDEN BRYCE". Mainly because two of my closest friends are tied to that name and they have reached out to my sister through her journey to becoming a Mom. Plus it is a great name. Come on JULY 10th!
