Feliz Nuevo Ano! Dos Mil Ounce!

[Translation] Happy New Year! 2011!

Anywho, everyone is sooo in 2011 making resolutions.
With all honesty I am not making any, i never ever keep them.

Trueee thattt!
I am just just going to keep on doing my thing!
Just maybe a little better :)
I don't have too many complaints on 2010,
This year has been pretty good to me so it is sad to see it go so fast.
But it's a new year and a new begining, more adventues ahead.

I am going to keep going to school & work my a$$ off to graduate.
It's so hard having a full time job and going to school till 10pm,
but in the end, I know it will pay off.
I am also doing very well at work,
i am almost promoted to a loan officer,
so I am hoping just to complete that!
Oh & Christian & I's 5 year anniversary together earlier this month

[Side Note]

I don't know about you,
but I loveeee trying on clothes & taking pics!
Does anyone else do this?
I feel bad when my boy is waiting for me hehe.
I regret not buying this dress, wahhh! :(
I could have dolled this dress up!
Do you love my pink socks?
This would have been a nice New Years Dress !
Oh well ...

So I am starting the New Year with my favorite drink!
I would rather be at home safe for New Years
I am just having a small shindig at my house,
I stocked up on Stella Rosa Wine & Stella Rosa Champagne :)
Well only for my friends, my boy likes Corona! haha

Happy New Year to all my new friends!
I hope to improve my blog & have a makeover soon!
Leave everything behind & let's start fresh ♥

And it isn't sprinkling or raining...ITS POURING.
Pouring since Friday, I seriously can't believe it hasn't stopped!
To top it off, it isn't expected to stop till Thursday!

Friday night, I had to finish Christmas shopping & I went to Citadel Outlets
(which of course are outdoors)
Got super wet & come to find out my boots had a small hole on the bottom!
Oh and I spent some of my Christmas money on ME :)
Mini Shopping Spree @ H & M.

Today, Christian's little brother from Texas comes to visit for the holidays!
 He is so excited hes been texting me like crazy counting down weeks, days now hours :)
He is like my little brother, love him like my own brother :)

Yesterday ...

I can't even tell you how much of a great day yesterday was.
Ok, I will ♥ haha

My morning started at 7:30, we had our annual staff Christmas Breakfast.
Your regular kind of breakfast was served : Eggs, Potatoes, Bacon, ham & french toast !
They had a little meeting blah blah & then they informed us that they will be giving us a VERY generous Christmas Bonus. Which they referred to an "Employee Appreciation".
I don't care what they call it! I was sooo happy!
So now I get to buy decent presents for everyone, even me :)  hehe

Next, some friends from work had just came back from New York the previous night.
And guess what they brought me back?

Hello Kitty Shot Glasses & an amazingly cute keychain!
I don't want to either out of their wrappings ♥
Everyone knows me too well :)

After school I met with my mom & bought Christmas stuff for my house
and gift bags, act.
I hadn't seen my mama in like a week so i missed her!

Next, It was my very last day of school for the semester,
My last class was Ceramics.
Now to be quite honest, I am a horrible artsy person.
I really struggled in this class BUT when I saw the finishing touches of my mugs,
my heart melted hehe

I know it's not great, but to me, I feel so proud I made them!
Yay me!

Anyways, I finished my last day of school with a pot luck & the final!
The final was a breeze so I am pretty sure I passed!

I got home, set up all the Christmas stuff,
watched Conan & Lopez Tonite.
OMG I love George Lopez!
I think he is soooo hillarious!
SO I went on my phone to check my email
and I had gotten an email from
Erica from Sweets & Hearts
and she wanted to inform me I had won her Lily B Skin Care Giveaway!

This is what I won:

YAY! That completed my Wednesday!
Today is my first offical day off of school!
So my boy is going to look for his dream car,
Mitsubishi Evolution.
& dinner afterwards to celebrate my ending of school & Xmas Bonus (appreciation)

Have a Beautiful Day Everyone ♥

Planning a Bridal Shower Tea Party!


Hey all!

In about four months my cousin will be getting married!
April 2 , 2010 to be exact!
Being in a wedding makes me think what if I get married...
who would I choose to me my girls?
What theme will I go for? How will I find a dress? All that jazzz!

but anyways, sorry side tracking...
I am happy to say she picked me to be her Maid Of Honor!
So far, I think I have been doing very good.
She thought up the wedding to be a
1940's Hollywood Glam Theme.
Everything she has planned already matches the theme perfect!
She is even having in an old mansion. very cute!

So of course me being maid of honor,
I need to be the H.B.I.C (head bitch in charged)
 for her bridal shower.
I thought, what better theme than a tea party!
I would like to go all the way but I have to compromise with ideas only
because people ARE picky! 
I got some great ideas but I am still very open for any suggestions.

Here is what I got so far:

Finger Sandwiches
Chicken Salad
Ham & Cheese


tea party wedding cupcakes

Cupcakes (of course)
Sugar cookies with frosting & sprinkles
petit fours

Tea! & Drinks
Green Tea
Iced Passion Tea
Water with Lemon Slices
Strawberry Lemonade?

Teapot/tea cup center pieces w/ daisys or gerber flowers.
lace table cloths
A Pretty Banner

Lastly, I was hoping I can encourge just brides maids to dress in tea party attire.
(dress, gloves, hat) and suprise the bride with all this plus a very special hat & gloves.

Does anyone have any tips or places where I can go to get these thing?
or maybe gifts for the games? I have the games in mind, very good ones.
Help a sista' out♥

Cupcake Popper Recipe

Ok, so I am not really your, make stuff from scratch kinda gal.
I use cheater recipies! hehe
For those of you that are just like me...

Here is a recipe for you :)

Cupcake Poppers

  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil, egg whites called for on cake mix box
  • 1/4 teaspoon each gel or liquid food colors (neon pink, neon purple, neon orange, neon green, classic blue)
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • Gel or liquid food colors (neon pink, neon purple, neon orange, neon green, classic blue)


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 60 mini muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter among 5 small bowls, about 3/4 cup each. Make 5 different colors of batter by adding 1/4 teaspoon food color to each bowl; blend well.

2. Fill each muffin cup with 1 level measuring tablespoon batter, making 12 cupcakes of each color.

3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.

4. In large bowl, beat marshmallow creme and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Beat in powdered sugar until fluffy. Divide frosting among 5 small bowls, about 1/3 cup each. Using the same 5 food colors, lightly tint frosting in each bowl to match the cupcake colors.

5. Assemble each popper using 2 mini cupcakes. Cut tops off each cupcake horizontally (save bottoms for another use). Spread or pipe about 1 tablespoon frosting on cut side of 1 cupcake top. Form a sandwich by placing cut side of second cupcake top on frosting; press lightly. Repeat with remaining cupcake tops. Store loosely covered.

So there ya go!
It seems like a sugar overload huh? lol
Happy Baking.

A small wish list

Giving feels great!
But so does recieving :)

This was supposed to be my birthday gift back in October, but I can't seem to find it in stores anymore!


I have been wanting this soo bad!
I found a great deal on this 20% orginal price ($100) plus free shipping.
My boyfriend has promised to buy this for me! 

However ... I do not understand how there are only
xxsmall, xsmall & small all the time!
I think that is discrimination! haha
Not Everyone is lucky to be an Xsmall!
I need a medium!
I got some boobies that will not fit in a small! haha

[EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR Camera]

This black beauty,
I would rather have this more than anythingggg!
But I have to save up myself & my boyfriend is helping me :)
So Hopefully with my tax $$ I'll be gettin' a new camera!

Lastly, this!!!
They also have hello kitty film!
Isn't that awesome :)
I am getting too carried away.
I have to start buying presents for others!!
Speaking of that ...
Back to the subject of Obey Clothing ...

obey clothing mens hand-steniciled wreath tee + ornament in box

I really want to get this for my boy, it's $40.
He is obsessed with Obey! So maybe I should!
He is gonna buy me a $100 jacket hehe.

So What do you think of the jacket? Is it worth the search?
Do you have the same sizing problems!
