Day 15 - Photo Challenge

A picture of something you want to do before you die..

FIJI!! I would love to pick up and go! For about month? Give or take. Explore every island, sight see, go on an adventure, be wild and crazy! Oh, and of course...lots of sun bathing and margaritas!! One day..One day..

So who is keeping up with the RHOMIA? As promised, I have recap! 

Christy in tonight's episode hosted a luncheon with a Cuban Chef who used a crock pot to make a authentic Cuban meal. Yeah, way to bring down our Cuban community! I think Christy should have had my grandma making some 'Real Cuban food.' Also, she party crashed Lea's Charity Gala, and did not pay the $500 ticket price, or donate to her charity. I have a feeling the drama has just started...

Alexia this episode was all over the place. She made headline's in our local paper: The Miami Herald. On last night's episode she slammed the people of Hialeah. Hialeah is a big city located near Miami with a high population of Cuban decent. It's where most people have planted their roots. For Alexia to make the comments she made about was wrong and flat out rude! Especially since her current husband used to be heavily involved in Hialeah politic. She has recently apologized for her remarks.

She also compares herself a lot like Adriana..Interesting!

Besides telling Adriana to get rid of her fiance, we also learned that she loves firing her nannies! She get's a thrill out it! Odd! She started off the season stating she does everything around the house, yet she has a bus load of help.

Lea this episode through a huge Gala promoting her Charity! We also learned she love Joe Francis aka Girls Gone Wild creator..Just lovely!

Can't wait to tune in to the next episode when she sends Christy an invoice for attending the Gala!!

She was very quiet this episode. She handled Lea's red carpet, and sipped some wine with her lover. That's about it!

Adriana in this episode didn't walk the cat walk. She attended Christy's luncheon, forgot to pick up her son, and then got into an argument with her fiance aka "frenchman" about picking up son. No worries, her son was picked up, not left in a parking lot.

Oh, and who can forget about momma?? I find her entertaining! Maybe because I have a Cuban mother with an accent. But what is wrong with her face?? Did she have a botched surgery?? Did she intend to look this way? It's not normal..I'm going to have to google thins woman! lol! I need answers.

Anyhoot! I hope you all enjoy my recap! Tune in next week. I'm sure the drama will continue...
This definitely not my favorite housewives franchise, but it is my hometwon! So I will watch no matter what. Let's hope for a better season.

Day 14, Movies, and What I'm loving..

Day 14 - A picture of someone you can never imagine your life without..

I know corny, but true! I can't imagine my life without husbone. I love this man dearly! He is my rock, and without him I would be lost! --Literally! I am so fortunate to have found him and his love!

Now for something fun! who doesn't love deals? Especially now in days that we are trying to pinch every penny we can? How about this great offer from Living Social? 2 Movie tickets from Fandango for $9!!
Hurry now! This offer is only good for today, so take advantage! 

Now on to What I'm loving Wednesday...

  • I'm loving that in one week and a couple of hours, husbone and I will be jetting off for our mini getaway to Chi town!! So excited! I've never been, and I'm looking forward to celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary!! --Eek!!

Dear Monday..

Good morning you all!!
I don't know about you, but I am dragging my stilettos this morning. I think I stayed up wayy to late last night watching the Oscars and having an unlimited amount of vino! --But luckily it's once year! Nothing a double shot can't fix!
So what did you guys think about the Oscars last night? I thought the host's did OK. I expected a little more. There were no surprises. The King's Speech and Toy Story seemed to have done very well! All in all it was a good award show. Definitely worth staying up for!
Oh, and my favorite pick of the night...

Mila Kunis
I think she looked gorgeous in that dress! Just gorgeous!! She's had an amazing award season. All her dress picks have been on point!
Besides last night's award show, the weekend turned out to be pretty productive! I was able to tackle ALL the laundry, clean, and go grocery shopping! Now our fridge and pantry are happy :)
So it's no secret that today is Monday, and that most of us dread it, but I'm going to look at it as "my day." It's going to be "my week." Make it a good one!!!!

Day 9 - Photo Challenge

Day 9 - A picture of a person who has gotten you through the most..
Besides my family, the one person who has been constant in my life has been husbone. Through our 91/2 years of courtship, we've both endured a lot. Between school, careers, life, he's been my rock! --As corny as that may sound. His smile, wise words, have always helped me get though those challenging times..

Day 8 - Picture that makes you laugh...

Happy Thursday!!!

Recap: RHOMIA!

Anyone who reads my blog or my tweets will have noticed that I am a huge fan of the Real Housewives franchise! You name it, I like! So when the rumor was circulating that there was going to be a Real Housewives of Miami (RHOMIA) I was thrilled!! Maybe because it;s my native city? But who doesn't love Miami?!
So here is my short recap about Tuesday's premier: I expected a little more. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. The cast is very diverse. Filled with different personalities. The six ladies are beautiful and and well accomplished! Not too much was learned in this episode, but I will definitely be tuning in for next weeks episode.
I leave you now with the cast!!! Tune in next Wednesday for a follow up :)

Sunshine State of Mind..

I am all smiles today know that the weekend is a hop scotch away! Sure I am tired, sleep deprived, and hungry {Haven't had lunch yet} But after looking over the weather, I am super stoked to venture of to the beach this weekend, and catch some rays! Sigh..
This is just a reminder that summer is right around the corner! And that beach weekends will be a weekly routine!
With that said, there is still work to be done. Deadlines, new projects, and more..So after work I will go ahead and treat myself to a mani/pedi! I am counting the hours of the day! Just to sit a relax for an hour is music to my ears!

Have a great Thursday!!!
