Showing off our Artist side..

This weekend has come and gone. I can't believe how quick the weekend just snuck in and passed us by. Regardless of that I do thank God that I get the chance to spend quality time with my baby. Yes, I did say baby! He may be 5 years old but to me he will always be my BABY!  My hubby and I both work and we try our best to spend most of our time with our little guy. Well this weekend was mommy and me time with my little guy, so I decided to take him to this place called Painted Earth Pottery. I had notice this place in the plaza near our home. I would say I had passed by it more that 100 times but would just peak from the outside. I was really curious to see what they had to offer. So that is when I told my son that we were going to go be artist! He wasn't quite following what I was saying but I assured him that he would have fun. So he said Yes! When we arrived to the pottery place he was in AWE! He seen some other customers there painting away to their pottery pieces and I could just see his excitement in his eyes. He asked if we were going to do the same. Well let me tell you we had a really good time choosing our pieces and our colors I don't have picture of the final finished product because we had to leave our pieces there to get glazed. I can't wait to see them and to show them to you too.

My Crazy Week..

Hello My Sweet Coasters,

Wednesday has come and gone, almost done with the week. Well at least for the those of you that get Saturday and Sunday off. I will continue to work till Sunday and then have Monday off before I start my new work schedule. I will then officially be able to say that I  have normal working hours. Right now I work crazy hours. Since the Hospital is open 24hours, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. I guess that is why. =(  Like I mentioned a few more days of this craziness. Please wish me the best! I am  really praying that I can do my best at what they expect from me. 

On to other notes, I have posted a few pics of my crazy week. As you see below are pictures of my parents. I am SO, SO, SO proud of them. They have officially become U.S. Citizens. They have been here in this country for quite some time. As one says it's never too late!! I am very proud of them, they studied their butts off. Literally, I wish I had pics of my mom's study pattern. She would have signs all over the house with Questions and Answers. My dad decided that they would go to the local library and check out a copy of the audio U.S. Citizenship Questions and Answers. I am not sure but I will say that this is what they probably would listen to prior to going to bed. Got to love them!

3,950 people swore in this phase. In total it was about 9,000

My Lovely Parents!! Yup, they did it!!

My sister says my Mother and I look a like. What do you think??

Over the weekend since I was off, we decided to make it out to the shooting range. This is my son's 3rd time going. He is just like his father likes guns so what better way to teach him the basics and the safe proper handling of fire arms but to take him and show him.

My hubby setting up the targets..

Making sure they are correctly placed..

Smile for the camera, he has his game face on.. =)

Fire!! Fire!! A fire seems to break out often on our side of the woods. This time it was a bit too close to home. Good thing it was just a brush fire and no homes or structures destroyed. Again these things can run like nobody's business though so as you can imagine all the fire departments on call..

Passing by work...

My sister and I ...

We had to stop and get some frozen yogurt on this cool day..

Last but not least FINALLY getting my rings resized... I am such a procrastinator... 

I hope you all have a great rest of the week... Ta-Ta for now!!

Late Night Card Making Silhouette/Cricut

Hello My Sweet Coasters,
The weekend is over and now time to get back on track with the daily work week, school and house duties. I feel like I have been off blog land for a bit. Which I have!!!! If I have your blog on facebook not to worry I have kept up with your blogs and reading all your wonderful post. All you ladies that have blogs and keep up with them on a daily basis more power to you!! You guys are amazing!!! Here are a few that I keep up with Quaintly Garcia, Dear Darling and JennisseMakeup again you gals are awesome! Keep doing what you do because you are Great at it!!

The weekend was almost over and I remembered that my son's Kindergarten teacher was leaving his class this Monday. I had told my son we would make his teacher a Thank you farewell card. I almost forgot so I had to with it and put something together quick!! Down below is what I put together. I hope she liked her card. My son kept asking me if I was done with it. I told him "Baby, when you wake up in the morning your teacher's card will be waiting in your back pack"... He said you promise mommy?? Yup! I said..... 

P.S. I am glad I had the Silhouette just because after selling my Cricut and re-purchasing it again I didn't have many cartridges to work with. I haven't gone into the Cricut Craft Room so I am not sure if it's like the Silhouette Studio where you look for a shape number or saying and you can purchase just that.

Take a Ride with Me.

I know, I know, I look really f *dorky with a helmet. But Hey Safety First!!! I have just started riding. It had been years since I got on an actual moving bike. Stationary ones I have but moving ones is a different story. If you recall from my last post I mentioned my hubby bought me a bike with no plan intended.. LOL! Well, he also got me all geared up too as you see below I am wearing my helmet. As I keep seeing progress in my weight loss I keep getting motivated to keep going riding,eating healthy and eventually running. One step at a time though.

This video clip was take after the fact.

Monster Jam 2012

Monster Jam! Monster Jam!! That is all I hear around my house. My little guy is obsessed with Monster Jam trucks at this time. I see these things every where around the house. In my bed, in my purse, even in my lunch bag. Luciano dreams with these little monster trucks.  What is even more interesting is watching him doing YouTube reviews. He tells me that he wants me to take a quick video of him doing a review on his latest and greatest new truck. Where does he get this stuff from? What he doesn't know is that mom and dad are taking him to experience this Monster Jam event live and up close this 2 weeks from now. I can't wait to see his face when we walk in to the Qualcom Stadium in San Diego. He is going to flip!!

Oh and by the way his favorite all time truck is "El Toro Loco". I will not lie I am actually a bit excited myself for this event. I might just take a few pics with the famous Monster truck Drivers. lol!

My New Room and Color

I have a new look, new color for my room. (sewing, craft room or office space). I moved locations within my own house. Funny but true. I was in the room next door. If you look at the picture below you will see that the door that is shown is a walk-in closet which my hubby turned that into a small hubby room. lol! not sure what he will put there but as long as he is ok with the set up I am A-OKAY with it. Like I mentioned before I was originally in the room next door with purple walls, I wasn't quite the happy camper because after we had painted the room it was dark and gloomy. So I decided that I would change rooms to the one that has two windows and more lighting and with this said I would be able to start fresh with a new color. Here it goes this is the new color, somewhat of a layout. Now I have to fill the walls with Decor and with some of my handmade crafts. If you have any suggestions please share. I am open to all ideas.
