I never thought I would say this..



I never, never, never.... DID I SAY NEVER??? thought I would say this but this past week we have been having some crazy issues at work where we had to work away from our desk. As much as I sometimes hate my desk I MISSED IT DEARLY!!! I hadn't been able to keep up with you all during working hours. From time to time I log  on to read daily post and I hadn't been able to do that being away from my desk or with out people looking over my shoulder... But I am back!!!!!

Make-Up Addiction and more...


I thought I would never say this, but I think I'm addicted to Make-Up. I really don't know what has come over me. I have been on a make-up roll. I mean it's not like I don't wear make-up, but lately I have been more and more interested in the art of if all . I give big props to all the beautiful make up gurus. Make-Up Art is a wonderful skill and it takes a lot of practice and patience. Ever since my sister put me to the challenge of wearing make up everyday to work I have notice that I have been trying to find new ways to change my look. I promised my sister I would try different colors and stay away from my same ol browns and golds. Hey I even tried the whole false eyelash thing.. Yes, I'm a rookie.. but with time I will get better at it. I even asked my hubby to help me out in turning my walk-in closet into a make-up studio... I think he agreed and with that said I have started to look at some dressing tables. Vanity mirrors... I really like the Vanity Girl Hollywood style... but my hubby said we can get something together that would probably cost us half the price if not less. So I am up for all that.  YouTube has been my best friend lately.... alot of great stuff from organizing, to make up styles, cleaning your make up brushes, and how to blend the right colors..

I will get this good... LOL!!!

Happy Sunday Everyone! Shakira Style


"Rabiosa"
Shakira Ft. Pitbull

This morning I must say that I woke up with some energy... (well more than usual).. I had some music in the background playing while I am sorting out my laundry then this hit came on and it had me moving my body. Great workout song too. My son tends to get embarrassed or I don't know what happens that he tells me to stop dancing. Then walks in to the room taking pictures like a paparazzi. Got to love my boy!!

Gray Hair is killing me!!!




Wow!! it has been a while since I have blogged! My life is a little crazy these past few days or weeks. Lots of changes going on at work. Where I just want to SCREEEEEEAAAM!!!!  I will be fine.. but the one thing that will make me scream is all the gray hair I am noticing!!! What is going on??? How did this happen?? When did this happen??  I don't know I am kind of thinking of making a trend with my blotches of gray hair where I am just going to roll with it. I always have admired the females that rock their gray locks and rock it really well. Hopefully this will be me!!

Twisted Fate Photography Challenge

Happy Saturday!! As I am here cooking I was browsing through some of my favorite blogs and I came across the "RED" theme Photography Challenge from Twisted Fate Photography. You had to photograph something or someone with the color RED so here it is this my famous Guacamole that I make. Of course this is right before I mixed all the ingredients together.

Charro In Pajamas



Here is my Charro, in pajamas...lol!! I really don't know what he was doing all I know is that he saw me with a camera and there he was. Posing different hats. You name it. So I figured I would share this silly guy with you.

Charro:: is a term referring to a traditional horseman from Mexico, originating in the central-western regions primarily in the state of Jalisco including: Zacatecas, Durango, Guanajuato, Morelos, Puebla. The terms Vaquero and Ranchero (Cowboy and Rancher) are similar to the Charro but different in culture, etiquette, mannerism, clothing, tradition and social status.

ManĂ¡ Long Overdue Concert..

MANA' IN CONCERT!!! LONG OVERDUE TOUR FINALLY!!!

If you are a MANA' fan I am sure you know what I am talking about it has been about 5 years since their last concert. Everyone has been waiting patiently to know when this concert was coming to town and if there was going to even be a concert soon. I was super excited when my hubby told me that the radio station just mentioned that they were coming to L.A STAPLE CENTER June 23, 2011. NO WAY!!!
I am a BIG fan of theirs. Listening to their music brings me back to my High School years.. I have not had the chance to make it out to see them and this time around I was going to make sure I was there!!! I am not going to get too excited until I see my purchased tickets in my hand. But nonetheless I got them!! I was on edge because this sale was going to start at 10am while at work. My work load is pretty busy on a Friday morning. What excuse was I going to give to get away from my desk to jump online to get my tix. But GOOD OL IPhone app came through I downloaded the Livenation app on my phone and BAM! This app was quicker than the actual computer. Now it's just the waiting game for the concert..

Good way to start a Monday!

Happy Monday HBI & Sweet Rollercoaster readers!! I hope you had a great weekend!!
Back to the grind on Monday mornings always brings mixed feelings. Wishing at times I could just stay home.. But no, that's not me so to work it is!! Well this morning at work we had a pleasant surprise. Breakfast for the staff! Yeah!! Always a treat to walk in to the staff lounge and find freshly brewed coffee but this time we were spoiled!! We had an omelet man.. (you know how there's usually a taco man). Well yes, indeed this was the Omelet man. His catering company Rise and Shine provided one of the best breakfast buffets.. Scrambled eggs, French toast, bacon, oatmeal, fresh cut fruit, roasted potatos, salsa, the works! But I will say my favorite was the made to order omelets..
Below is his business card. I told Sean the omelet man I would blog about his great service. This comes in handy when you are planning a breakfast meeting or Brunch.


Here is my omelet to order; spinach, red bell pepper, bacon, mushroom and cheese..

In Need of A Tripod... HELP!.



Good morning all.. Hope you are having a great weekend. If you live in southern California it's raining today It's a good day to have a movie marathon and some comfort food..  =)
This morning I was looking through all of my pictures that I have taken. I noticed something ..... What is it??? I am rarely in any of all of my millions and millions of pictures... ( Okay not millions but  thousands.) I am nowhere to be found.

I am going to make it a point to get my self a tripod ... But somewhat in lost just because there are so many some are majorly expensive and some are just plain cheap ... I had purchased one at my local Target store when I had first purchased my camera took it out the box, set it up but no way was I trusting my camera on that thing.. The tripod was so flimsy I was scared it would just tip over and break my camera. So I returned it. I haven't purchased another.. Hoping you can give me tips on where or what kind I should buy.. I would greatly appreciate the help...   =)

XOXO, Isela

Endocrinologist Visit....


Hello and Happy Friday!! Finally the week is over, this week was pretty long and dragging for me. Eighter way hope you all have a great weekend.. The forecast for us here in Southern Cali is rain all weekend.. I don't mind the rain. I love rainy schedule, stay home, movie marathon weekend.. lol!!

On another note... Yesterday was my 4 month follow up with my Endocrinologist, and believe me I dread going to these appointments but I know I have to keep them. If you ask why I hate them?? It's because I know that I always get told a thing or two.  Sometimes I have to prepare my self mentally before I go there. I was really tempted to call and reschedule my appointment yesterday morning but I had already told myself no I can't do that. So I went.... =)

The first thing when I checked in was to give up my insulin pump.. The reason for this was to upload all my information from the past 4 months. There is no way of cheating yourself out of this one because every time I check my blood it automatically uploads my glucose readings to my pump..   No Log books... I can't change the readings = )... So here I am waiting for the doc and my readings. My doctor checked my feet, blood pressure , glucose reading at the time and temperature every thing was normal. Then she said "Ok now to the good stuff"... TUNN TUN TUTUNNN!!!! All i hear is WOW!!!! what have you been doing??? Your readings look great and what ever you are doing keep doing it!!! Oh, I could've just fainted at the time cause I was waiting for the worse... Sigh of relief!!!! fewwww! Well I have been trying my best to eat a lot better. Keeping track of my carbs and walking a lot more. It actually feels good to walk. It just makes me feel brand new for some reason.. I do have to be honest sometimes it gets hard for me. But I have a lot to live for so I continue to push  forward.

Help Bring A Smile to His Face..


For Aidan!!!


A Baby in Need of Smiles - Please Help Little Aidan
Tanya from Scrappin KY Momma needs help from all of us crafters. She knows this little boy and his family and would like to send him cards. Here's his story...

Aidan is a sweet lil 2 year old who was recently diagnosed with T Cell Leukemia. On Wednesday, he had a port installed in his chest, spinal tap, bone marrow, and chemo in his spine. He did GREAT! This lil guy is such a trooper. His parents have accepted that their BABY has Leukemia.. NOT the easiest thing to accept, but their faith in God and their support system have kept them going. T-Cell Leukemia has a high cure rate although chemo will be continued for quite a while. Lil Aidan LOVES mail, like any 2 year old does. So....

Let's get our crafting supplies out and send this lil guy some LOVE!!! Pass this on to all your crafty friends. I think we can all take a couple minutes and make something special for him that will bring LOTS of smiles and he can look at over and over. We all know how laughing and smiling can be good for the soul. Let's give him this much for him to enjoy while he's battling this horrible disease. I have no doubt in my mind that God can perform a miracle in this beautiful child. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.Lets all come together and put Lots of BIG Smiles on Aidan's and his parents faces.

You can mail your cards to:

AIDAN

Men and Feminine Products...

Hello and T.G.I.F!!! Finally time to go home from work.. This week was a very long and busy week for me..  Lots going on..  I just had to share this with you before I headed home.. This morning I was listening  to KIIS FM 102.7 and Ryan Seacrest was talking about men and feminine products. He asked his audience if there were any men out there who secretly used their girlfriend's or wife's feminine products.. Which I am sure there is a lot of men out there who do.. They use the female shaving cream because it leaves a softer shave or the feminine wash because I'm sure they think "Well if it's washing someones dedicate parts it can work for me.. " LOL!! Face wipes with the fresh feel I'm sure they use that too.. But do tell me why are some men soo freaked out of walking out the store with these products???? Because they are Pink or because they have Pretty flowers in them I think... Well my other questions is why do men's product need to feel like if they have to wash of sand and dirt off their body... Well this was just something I had to share.. =) Have a great weekend!!
