Veteran's Month At Knott's Berry Farm..

Did you know that Knott's Berry Farm honors our Veterans?? If you didn't now you know.. lol! This past weekend we took a trip to Knott's Berry Farm, in honor of Veteran's Day. My husband served in the military (US NAVY) for 7 years. He was aboard the USS VALLEY-FORGE, which was stationed off San Diego, CA. I say stationed off San Diego because it has already been decommissioned a few years ago. Well my husband received an email of all the great deals that were being offered to him for serving our country. Which one of them was free entrance to Knott's. All military personnel active or retired where granted a free entrance with one free guest and $15 dollars for up to 6 guest. So we didn't pass it up and decided to take a trip. I have always liked Knott's Berry Farm and now was time for us to enjoy it with our 3 year old son. He had a blast riding the race cars in Camp Snoopy. Calico Mine ride was a bit of a challenge just because it was dark in some areas but still managed to get through it with him not saying a word he was just amazed at all the miners that were looking for gold I tell Ya!!! lol! My son has this thing with Cowboys so I figured he would enjoy the BIG Train ride. Which he did, he liked it even more when the cowboys were in the cabin holding us up looking for money... (Of course it was part of the ride) not a real hold up. Here are a few of the pics I took.. I will say we had great and memorable time. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!!

Do the BiG Blue Test, on World Diabetes Day

As you all can read from my profile. I am a Type 1 Diabetic. My life depends on insulin, I am happy to say that I have a job that offers me health insurance at no cost to me. That is how I get to see my doctors and fill my much needed prescriptions. Unfortunately not everyone can do that. There are many adults and children that for one reason or another can't get medical attention nor the medication that is required to survive. That is the reason why I am here today to ask for a huge BIG favor. This will only take a few minutes but will changes someones life for a life time. Please view "THE BIG BLUE TEST VIDEO" on www.youtube.com and press "LIKE IT". With every view and like we get, it donates to a cause that will help a much needed child obtain Insulin to survive..

Octavio Ocampo...

Octavio Ocampo, is one fine Artist and muralist. Octavio was born February 28, 1943 in Celaya, Guanajuato. Coming from a family of designers Octavio first studied art as a boy. He was educated at the Fine Art Institute in Mexico City and San Francisco Art Institute. He has been exhibiting since 1972. His love for art did not stop there. Octavio not only was an artist but also did acting and dancing. He pursued both film and theater career as well. After Octavio devoted his time solely to sculpture and painting and since has been primarily working on metamorphic style using a technique of super imposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details within the images he makes.

To look at Octavio's painting takes a little practice but you will love the outcome of all he does. One has to look long and hard. The longer you look the more you will see. Another reason why I love his art work is because it's filled with symbolism. Here are a few I was able to get for you to look at.

Eyes Dilated...

This past Wednesday I had a scheduled annual eye exam. Which I dread those kind of appointments just because I know that I will have to get my eyes dilated. Since I am Type 1 diabetic this is a yearly ritual for me. So I have to do it no matter what. Well let me just say that if you know for sure that at the end of your visit the Optomologist will tell you that it's eighter time to change your lens and you are eligible for a new pair of frames. Choose them before you step in to the room and can't really see well after because of your eyes being dilated. This is exactly what happened to me. I mean glasses come in many different shapes and colors and let me not forget to say different prices. I couldn't choose my frames that day because I also need to make sure to choose the right kind of price.. LOL!! and this picture below is exactly what I saw when looking at the price and style...

Priceless ...

This morning when we dropped off my son in daycare. I had a special
gift waiting for me. My son put together this beautiful Penne pasta
necklace. I was in Awe when I saw it .. This necklace to me is worth
more than those Tiffany&Co. and other pricey jewelry. Sorry to say
that ladies.. But its true. I even had to post about it here and
Facebook to show off my one of a kind Priceless necklace.

This is me wearing it proudly...

What is Your Pet-Peeve???

I usually don't like writing negative stuff, just because that's not who I am. Today I will have to make an exception for that.. LOL! Okay, who here uses the carpool lane?? Anyone?? I will have to say that I do, Monday through Friday twice a day on our way to work and back. Now on to my other question. What is considered the speed limit on the carpool lane?? I believe it's 65 mph... Okay yes, I said 65 mph Not 40 mph or 35 mph.... I think you kind of know where I am going with this right? Well this morning on our way to work traffic was flowing pretty good, which we made it a point to get on the road a few minutes earlier due to fact that every one is back to full schedule now that summer is over and traffic can get a little hectic. When all of a sudden we come to a halt on the freeway going westbound to work. My husband tells me he thinks there might be a traffic jam probably caused by an accident or lane closure. There where about four cars ahead of us and my husband asked me if I can see what is going on. He turns on the radio to 1070am and they aren't mentioning any closures of lanes or any kind of traffic jams on our way. When all of a sudden my husband notices as we are going up a hill that there was a car that was going about 35 mph on a busy day on the carpool lane and holding up traffic.. Come on!!! Please if you can't handle the carpool lane and it's speed don't get on it and hold up traffic behind you. Especially in the Fast-Trak Lane!

Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Mom!

My mom's birthday was this past Wednesday September 23.. She is 62 years old to be exact! I love this woman with all of my heart. I know there are times I don't say it enough or simply show it. But my mom and I have this weird relationship that only her and I could understand and she knows that I love her so. This woman is one of the strongest woman I've known. She has a kind heart and takes every ones faults at stride. She deserves more than what I can give her. I pray to GOD that he keeps her here for many more birthday celebrations. What would I do with out her.. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

First Day of Fall....

I can't believe summer is over. It really never felt that summer even was here. I am not complaining I am just saying. But now that Fall is here I can't be more happy that I get to finally wear my warm cozy clothes. In that wardrobe boots, scarfs, gloves and hey maybe even leg warmers are included here.. lol! I love the feeling of cold days where you get to enjoy those nice cups of hot chocolate with the heater on and some pumpkin spice bread. I am sure you are all with me on this one.

submitted for my photo class. Wich I am happy to say that I was able
to get it done... This week tutorial was some what of a challenge for

was so amazed that my 3 1/2 year old son actually put this little
dragon together all by himself ... And that's when it hit me again...

Is it too soon to think about Halloween??....

Costumes, Candy, Pumpkins.... Is it too soon to think about Halloween?? Halloween is one the most awaited holidays starting from toddlers to adults just because we look forward in looking our best in that one costume we put so much thought into. Through out the years I have managed to show off some of my costumes. Since I don't like to spend so much money on something that I will be wearing a few times through the month of October. I usually go to thrift shops or find stuff around the house that will make my costume stand out. I love costume contest and I always like to participate. This is always the question between my co-workers and I...What will you be for Halloween this year?

This is my little guy as a cowboy..

Me, as a Major League Baseball Player....

Me, again as soldier... I actually won the costume contest at work...

My Husband and I. Him as Pancho Villa and I as an Adelita....

Road Trip...

Today my friend is hosting the topic "ROAD TRIP or DAY TRIP" . The question was do you and your family love to road trip or day trip?? My answer to that was Yes, we do! We like to wake up on Saturday or Sunday mornings with no plans sometimes and say OK lets see where the road takes us. I think the best one are the ones that you don't plan at all. We like to explore our surroundings and see what is out there.. This was one of my favorite locations. This picture was taken at Bayside View Park in Chula Vista, CA. The park was beautiful and just like the name of the park it had a view to the bay.

How to get my son to sleep in his own room??

I have been dealing with trying to get my son to sleep in his own room for quite some time now.
My son is 3 1/2 years old and is still sleeping in our bedroom. No, not in the same bed but in the same room. His crib is one of those that go through the stages with your toddler turns into a day bed then to full size bed. I am sorry to say but my baby better be out our room by the time he is using a full size bed.. (hee hee). On Monday I decided to give it a try and tell him that tonight sweetie you are sleeping in your own room. So we walked together to his room tucked him under the sheets, said a prayer, read him a good night bed story looked for the moon through the window and said my good nights.. In the back of my mind I said to myself "WOW" this is really going to work!! I went back to my bedroom got in to bed said good night to my hubby and I even told him I can't believe he is really doing this...... 30 minutes later..... Guess who was at my bed side... Yes, you guessed it.. My 3 year old son was there saying he wanted to hop in to our bed. I guess I will have to try again. First attempt failed... I have many more to attempts to try.

Today the hubby and I had lots going on around the house. We managed to get up at a very descent time. When I say descent it really means 9:00 am. The weekends are usually like this just because we do drive the distance during the week to get to work. Working 70 miles away from home can get exhausting but we have no problem with it right now. So today I told the hubby to join me on some errands and what not. Post office first stop, grocery store next then Target. ( I love Target) They have everything there. As we were driving to Target I remembered that I had not had the chance to use my newly bought DSLR camera. I recently purchased a Nikon D5000 and I was so eager to get out and take a few shots. So I told my husband lets go home and drop of the groceries because I knew the trip was going to be a long one. =) hee hee! As we were unloading the stuff out the car I figured I'd go and get my camera just in case... See I live out in Murrieta, CA it is still surrounded by beautiful mountains, horses and lots of trees. Once my husband found out I brought the camera he said he would take me up some hills to get great shots. So we ended in Winchester, CA at Lake Skinner. Lake Skinner is one of Riverside County Parks. I couldn't believe this place is right in our back yard. There is still so much we haven't seen in our 2 years living out here. But today was the day with did. Lake Skinner has everything.. from Fishing, Campgrounds, Boating, Picnic Areas and Biking trails. I couldn't believe how beautiful and relaxing this place was. We plan to come here again. The entrance fee for the day was $5 dollars. Very well worth the Five dollars. Here are some pictures I was able to take..

After that we continued to head down Winchester Road and came across the Temecula Vineyards. I haven't had the honor to go Wine tasting yet... Yes, I know it's so close almost in my back yard. I had my hubby drive in so I can get some shots of the vineyards and asked if we can please make it out here soon..

My very own space....

I am happy to say that I managed to get my very own room/ office.. All my life I shared a room with my little brother or sister. I got married and still share a room with my husband... Now that we have an extra room in the house I decided to take over. I didn't think my husband would go for the idea just because I'm sure he had plans for it too.

At this time I have my desk with my lap top and now it's time to pick out a color a theme for this room. I plan to use this room as what men out there call their own space a MAN CAVE, but In my case it's going to be my GETAWAY this will be the place I will come and relax from the every day routine, work and stress... I need ideas now..
