About Me

My photo
I've grown up in Phoenix and have LOVED it!! I have 3 beautiful sisters and 8 wonderful nieces and nephews!! They light up my life!! I have wonderful parents who still continue to help me grow every day. I really could not ask for better parents. Right now I take care of my wonderful grandmother who has dementia. We have so much fun together. And I'm grateful that I can spend this time with her!

Just Say NO!

I've been getting my eyebrows threaded at the mall and it's been WONDERFUL!! I don't have to deal with the rashes I get from waxing.  Well, one day I was like I HATE PEACH FUZZ!! So I decided to have my entire face threaded to remove ALL peach fuzz from my face.  The girl that did my face was like "you can't see the peach fuzz that well because it's blonde"... but nooooooo I said "I CAN!"  What a dummy!! I should have listened because this did NOT end well. I know someone who had their face done and they didn't have any problems or side effects from the procedure.  So, like a dummy, I thought nothing would happen to me.  After sitting in a chair for about 20-30 minutes it was all done.  My face felt really smooth and I LOVED it! So of course I told all my girlfriends to go have it done...
Well, give it a day and you can look like this too...
My face KILLED starting the next day...
When I noticed what a HIDEOUS monster I looked like I recalled my message to all my girlfriends and told them some things I should have considered before having my face fully threaded... let me list a few: FACE BREAKOUTS into a MAJOR rash,  never know I might turn out with a black bearded face, my face has no protection from the elements, my face is a little too smooth, and will the hair on my face grow back prickly????  AHHHH!!!!!! I MISS MY PEACH FUZZ!!!
I can actually report back that my skin is back to normal.  It took almost TWO weeks for it to clear up.  I can see a few specs of the rash on my face, but it's nothing compared to what it was... THANK GOODNESS!!  And the only reason I can share these HORRIBLE pictures with you is because this TRIAL is done in my life!! 

So lesson learned... I WILL NOT BE SO VAIN!

It's someones 2nd BIRTHDAY today...

 I remember June 9, 2008 like it was yesterday! Let me give you a glimps of that really exiciting day!
First, I woke up to these two cute kids smiling at me saying that they're going to have a sister!!
Then the best part was going down to the hospital when Ava was being born!!  Meeting my little namesake for the first time was one of the BEST things!!  Look how cute she was... SO TINY!!!!
And when her brothers and sister finally got to meet little Ava LYNN... they were all so excited and giddy!! I'm so happy to have this little girl in my life!

I got a package in the mail!!!

Oh. My. Gosh!! I got a package in the mail?  It has my name on it. This can't really be for me... YEPPPPPPPPP it is!!!!
Does that say Georgetown Cupcake??? What the heck!! Miranda Panda, you're in BIG trouble for sending this to us... First, I know that shipping this delectable treat was outrageously expensive;  second,  I'm pretty sure I just went an entire size up in my clothing by just looking at the box and third, you just bought me a surprise when you were here in AZ!!  BUT... YOU'RE SUPER COOL for sending it too!!
Georgetown Cupcakes KNOWS how to ship the goods!! Look at that packaging! It stayed nice and cool and stayed in the spot it was designed to be in.  You guys ROCK my world!!
This is the cupcake I decided to try.  Chocolate Peanut Butter!!
So if you read my last post you noticed that I had the Sprinkles chocolate peanut butter cupcake from them.  Let me just say that GEORGETOWN CUPCAKE totally schooled those fools!!  I'm pretty sure that I will NEVER eat at sprinkles again and only dream about GEORGETOWN cupcakes every night!! SERIOUSLY EAT A GEORGETOWN CUPCAKE!! It will ROCK YOUR WORLD!

Miranda came into town for work, so what does that mean? Well, that means FUN times!! Of course Big Ash and I said we would help her use ALL of her hotel amenities out of the goodness of our hearts. So we worked out at the awesome gym, ate sweets from the lobby,
went swimming (of course),
wore our robes around and laughed a LOT, and had free breakfast!!
We ate some more unhealthy treats (which was ok...)!!!
Of course we had some more fun driving out to Mesa basically EVERY DAY to eat at Cafe Rio. We did some damage at the mall... hehe! But overall I LOVED this vacation! Thanks Miranda for treating us to a very fun 10 days in the valley of the sun!!
