PhotobucketToday Sassy had her first playdate ever!! One of hubby's co-workers needed a babysitter for her dog (not really her dog, but that is a long story).. Anyway, we agreed and the girls couldnt be happier... They were expecting him since 2 days ago when we first mention it and it is like a dream come true (especially for Gaby)... Gaby has always dreamed about a quiet dog that will calmy sit right next to her... This is the first dog that actually sits right next to her ans STAYS there!!

His name is Miky (as in Mickey), and he is a Lhasa Apso. It bring me back a lot of memories to have a Lhasa Apso at home.. Back in March, I posted about two dogs of that breed that I had while growing up (there is even a photo of them). I still think about them a lot, and Miky was a lot like them.. As I still havent been able to buy a camera since the last time it got stolen, and my dad's camera wasnt here (we have been using it from time to time), I couldnt take photos (Sassy's photo on the right is actually from 2 days ago with my dad's camera)... It was sad not to take photos cause the chemistry between Sassy and Miky was amazing!! They were kissing each other (yes, ACTUALLY kissing), and playing non-stop. I dont think Miky has ever played that much in his life, but he was able to handle it longer than Sassy (There was a point that Sassy wanted to rest, but Miky wanted to keep playing.. so cute)...

The girls are wondering when he is going to come back, and Im not sure it will happen... It honestly wasnt easy to take care of 2 dogs and 3 kids all by myself... I was exhausted by the time hubby got home!! It was worth it, though, cause the girls REALLY enjoyed having him home!

Even though I have been keeping up with my new health blog for a few weeks already, I havent properly introduce it... It is called: Feels like recovering the old me!
Photobucket

My first post starts like this: I have been overweight for almost 6 years, and this still doesnt feel like me. My weight gain story started when I got pregnant with my first daughter. Due to liquid retantion I manage to gain 60 pounds during my first pregnancy. I was NEVER able to loose that weight... Two pregnancies later and 2 years after my last pregnancy, Im still in the same position that I was when I gave birth to my first daughter.

As Im a petite person (5'2 3/4... almost 5'3, but not really) and being at the weight I am now is A LOT. For several years I have tried to loose weight with doctors, diets, and exersise, but nothing happens... I have lost 5-10 pounds and gain them again, but nothing REALLY happens...


On this blog I plan to talk about my ups and downs on my weight loss journey, as well as some of the health issues I have been discovering along the way and how Im dealing with them... There will also be some tips of how I have been losing weight, in case I can help one of my readers.

This blog is private, so if you want access to my blog, you can fill out a contact form on my site (this way your email will only be seen by me), or even just leave a comment here...

I decided to take an afternoon off and play something with the girls... Mimi felt asleep so I decided to do something that normally cant be done with Mimi around...

We decided to play MAKEUP!! We have played Makeup with Mimi, but it does gets too messy, especially since she starts taking everything away from the other girls, and they crying and fighthing gets too much..

I got out a few bracelets (those are actually mine), girls makeup, purple nail polisher, a comb, some strawberry shortake scrunchies, and even a body splash (that was mine too)! We laugh and talk for at least a couple of hours...

Seriously.. This is the THIRD TIME in less than 2 months!!! Yesterday, we stopped at my dad's house after the Dog's Show and Mimi felt against a coffee table (not a corner, just the coffee table per se). It was very small and KNEW how it was going to look in the morning:

This is just sad, and I just wonder WHEN they will stop falling this much?!?!?

Gaby got invited to her friend Steph birthday party... I have know Steph's mom for over 13-14 years... It was a coincidence to bump into her at this school and it was very nice to have a familiar face around when I started working at this school..

Today was her daughter's 6th birthday... It was a Tinkerbell Pool Party and they celebrate it in the school.. They all had a blast... Gaby was the only invited, so I went with Gaby, while hubby stayed home taking care of Mia and Mimi. My tonsilitis is still on fire, but it felt very nice to have some friends to talk to while Gaby was having so much fun! Last year I made her birthday's invitation.. The theme was Care Bears.

One of Gaby's rewards for saying the line she was suppose to say at her graduation performance was to take her to a Dog's Show that was coming to town called: Dogs: The show of the incredible dogs.

She patiently waited for this day, and she couldnt believe it was today... As I have tonsilitis, it was impossible for me to go, so hubby took her and Mia to the show.. When we went to get the tickets, they told us about a new time that they opened up and we got for that time... Hubby told me how empty it was, so even though they were not in first row, it felt like it!

I got a bit sad that Mimi didnt got to enjoy it, but as we thought it was going to be very crowded, we decided it was going to be very difficult for hubby to deal with the three of them by himself..

Believe it or not, my new nephew is already 5 months old, and to this day it has been impossible to coordinate a date to get him together with my other nephew... It happened yesterday!!! We didnt spend much time there, because we needed to drop my in-laws to the Airport, but it happened, and Im very happy!!

My two nephews (with Ariel's mom, my sister in law)....
Photobucket

My dad's babies... That is two sons (two of my brothers), his daughter (me), his daughter in law (Ariel's wife), his son in law (hubby), and his 5 grankids (my three girls and my two nephews)... Sadly, one of my brothers is not in the picture... I should photoshop him in!!!
Photobucket

After we dropped my inlaws at the airport, we went back to my dad's house and Luis Enrique and his mom were still there... Here is a picture of him by himself.. Isnt he a cutie?? Im just dying for them to cut his hair..

Today we had a mass at the school to celebrate our 10th anniversary... The other night was about us, and today was about the families...

We had an awesome time and the girls had a blast with the kids that went...

Just after the mass:
Photobucket

There were some caps, shirts and books from high school that were unused, and they took them as a "souvenir"... The book was writen by most of us... It was a recopilation of poems that we wrote on the literature class. I may share the poem that I wrote later on..

As you may know by now I LOVE spending time with my extended family... I love spending time with my parents, brothers, nephews, cousins (plus their kids), aunts, uncles, etc etc etc.

As my inlaws are leaving tomorrow, my mom invited us for lunch at her house with my oldest brother, wife and son... It was a very nice time, and it got better when two of my cousins called to let us know that they were gonna stop by with their girls (remember them?)...

The girls and boy had a blast and they managed to get along very good... Their ages are: Gabriela (5), Isabella (almost 4), Camila (3), Ariel (almost 3), Maria Paula (2.5) and Amelia (2).. PICTURE THAT!!

Here are my daughters and nephew:

Now with Isabella:

By the way, Happy 4th of July!!

Ten years ago was my high school graduation day. I gratuated in a school that goes from Preschool all the way up to Twelve Grade. My first year in that school was Kinder, so that means that I met most of them when I was 5 years old, and I was already 18 by the time I graduated. We were 125 kids, plus several others that were once part of our clas, but that didnt gradute with us and were always around.

Statistics from the night (by Laura S.): From 125 graduates, only 44 were missing, which means 65% was present at the party. Out of the 35% that were missing, a 27% is overseas.

This is how we looked 10 years ago:

One of my cousins who lives in Texas is here on vacations... We grew up very close together, and even though we have regular contact through messenger, I miss spending time with her and her sister (her sister is Mia's godmother). She now has a daughter who is turning 5, and a little boy that is 20 months old. Everytime they come we try to spend some time with them, and we were very happy that they decided to celebrate her daughter's birthday here!!!

Im still camera-less, so I didnt took a photo, but my cousin promised me that she was going to send me photos ASAP... Here is one that I got out of Facebook from one of my cousins... I promise to post more when I get more photos!

Over a year ago my inlaws sent a bike to Gaby, and it has been under our stairs since then... We didnt plan it, but we needed to take it to store because it had a manufacturer defect... Yesterday, they went and took care of it... Early this morning, we went to another store and got one for Mia... They we all very excited... There is one at home that fits Mimi, but needs some repair...

Here is Mia in her bike:

Here is Gaby in hers:

Mimi took advantage of it and asked to use it.. It was huge for her.

We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
