Hmmm cheese. 

  Now this is how you have wine night.   


  • Manchego
  • Mild cheddar 
  • Drunken goat cheese. 


  • Peruvian Olives
  • Spanish Manzanilla Olives 

Underwood Deviled Ham 

I won’t take credit for setting up this delicious wine treat. I did enjoy  eating it. Yum! 


The curious kitty…

Rule is simple. 

My blog and I post what I want!

It doesn’t have direction or momentum but that’s okay. What I envisioned is something with many creative posts. 

Who reads this ? I don’t know yet. But while others take 1 million selfies of the same face I have my blog for whatever I choose to post. 

Gracias. :) 

This is 30

My friends and family didn’t fail at making me feel special this birthday. I had not planned a single event this year. The year passed by in a blink of an eye and before I knew it my big 30 was around the corner. 

Friday before my birthday, a group of my closest friends surprised me at the bar that we would go to when we were in our early 20s. 

They even ordered me my go to drink from back in days … Not such a great idea but that is a story for another day. 

My evening was followed by a movie  

Even though I stayed awake it’s such a blur. 

The good thing is that I woke up to this beautiful face. Her and I had a dinner date later that day. We saw   The Bridges of Madison county. Watching that movie the eve before my 30th bday was exactly what I needed. If you haven’t seen it or have but it’s been a while, I recommend you watch it. If you can, explore the world and don’t settle for a life without passion. It was truly Bittersweet watching it. Thank you for a wonderful evening mitts, I’ll  always remember it.  

“This kind of certainly comes but just once in a lifetime”  

The day of my bday I woke up not feeling any different from days before. I’m still 16 year old patty at heart only with a few heartaches later. I still think the same goofy things are funny and I keep falling for that cute dorky guy. I woke up to a kiss and some snuggles. The kind of snuggles you don’t want to get out of bed from.  

Not my picture lol but that’s how I think it looks like. 
  I had an amazing breakfast made with so much sweetness. Eggs,bacon,waffles,English muffin and pork chops! I took notes so I’ll be making it for myself another day.   
Later in the evening, my family bought me my favorite cake. Simple gal likes her simple don pan cake. My awesome sister also bought me 30 cupcakes from mishas cupcakes. I had such a wonderful time being with the people I love so much. I didn’t have a big party how I thought I would. I also wouldn’t trade this birthday celebrating any other way. 

They sang to me in English and in Spanish because I made a request.

I made a wish and I can only wish it comes true. 

Happy Birthday to me. 

Half Crazy X3

I’m only half crazy!

Once again I’ll be doing the Miami half marathon on January.24,2016. I am behind in my training, training that should have started months ago. There are programs that get you from the couch to running a half in 16 weeks. These programs require discipline and dedication which are hard to meet but not impossible.  The work hours and little personal time have to squeeze in some training. Lucky for me! I enjoy getting sweaty and running is something I look forward to whenever I get a chance to do it. I’ve completed 2 half marathons in the past and I know I can do this. I have 10 weeks to train my body into running again and my mind to stay motivated.

Tonight, I decided to hit the gym for some prepping for the weeks ahead. I dislike the treadmill, the stair master is my choice for cardio machines.


Workout Begins! (10 min wait)

Of course the moment I get on the machine everyone else gets off. I got the row all to myself :)

30 minutes later

153 floors of joy!

Not bad for a random gym night. I’ve been away for 2 months and 10 weeks are creeping in :)

Shameless car selfie to complete the gym session post.

Cheer for me!

you cannot quit me so quickly!




Is no hope in you for me?



No corner you could


squeeze me. But I got all


the time for you, love.






The Space Between
The tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep us safe from the pain


But will I hold you again?

But will I hold you again?

These fickle, fuddled words

These fickle, fuddled words

confuse me

confuse me

Like 'Will it rain today?'

Like ‘Will it rain today?’









Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted game we play

Today was my brother’s birthday and I had family over to cut a small cake we baked for him. My 9 year old cousin, Allison, brought over her “paintings” in a binder to show everyone. She told me she wishes she could take her artwork to school and show her friends but can’t because her book bag is too heavy ( awe I LOVE HER!!!). I love that she has so much pride in her work. What I love the most about her “paintings” is the thought I imagine she had behind each one. I wanted to see what she would take pictures of if I gave her my camera for the evening. I know letting her use my camera all by herself did something positive in her confidence. These are her pics:
