Sick. pictures.


Over the weekend plus Monday and Tuesday I was home with a cold. Staying at home doing nothing makes me feel worthless, so I would get up and try to do something around the house. But on Sunday… I did nothing and stayed in bed all day. Monday I did get up but… till 1pm to eat and clean a bit, because if I was going to be stuck in my room, I wanted to be stuck in a clean room.  Tuesday I felt a bit better… I made it to class in the evening… which is very important to me. Psychology is no joke… I need my notes for all exams, so I can’t miss a class… so many terms but I love that class, I have the best teacher ever. He makes sense of each term which the perfect scenario.  

These are some of the pictures I took while I was stuck at home sick for basically 3 days. I took regular pictures and use instagram to make them look sort of retro. 










Bringing back some of these styles and retro looks is absolutely brilliant.

Prioritize your life...

Sometimes I get myself into situations I just can’t handle… some people might call that a challenge… I call it a mistake.  Why?  Because I know I shouldn’t do it but I keep doing it. I don't know if I'll be able to handle it. I know I should stop it… but I don’t. I know everything escalates and then what? So if you know you can’t handle it… don’t do it…
Do what?

Anything and everything… it could be a relationship, another hobby, adding another class, applying for another job… adding another responsibility to your list that you’re not going to be able to put your all into it.

I know some people say it’s going to be hard but you can do it… hey if it’s possible do it. But if you already have a lot on your plate you know you can’t its okay not to.  Just finish what you your doing now and then come back and try doing what you wanted to do next. Because then you can do it right.

“I”… was focused… focused on being a mom, working, school, and working out. So why am I trying to add more things to my schedule… its takes time away from everything else. Takes away from my time that I have to finish what I already have to do and finish it with a great accomplishment.

So focus I will stay.


I feel that if I try doing something else at this very point of my life it would be impossible.

It might be 
fear
or
 that I'm to smart.

 I’m always having the propensity on crashing into obstacles but I have to learn to avoid the one that I can’t handle and going through the one I need to.


Priority!
Priority!
Priority!

Amalia's Guatemalan Restaurant

Yes, I'm Guatemalan... well both of my parents are... and that basically makes me 100% Guatemalan. I was born in Torrance, California but grew up partially in Los Angeles and then Inglewood.  I only had a chance to visit my parent’s homeland once… but I get to eat their food all the time… and I love it. Black beans and rice is my favorite meal. I can have black beans and rice everyday… with sour cream. MMMMMMM! So my co-worker wanted to visit a Guatemalan restaurant which I don’t commonly visit because I get to eat Guatemalan food on a daily basis at home. But I agree and we found a place near East LA… I must say… it was sooo good. Reminds me of my mom’s food. So delicious.!


 To start with... we all had different drinks... I had Tamarind    - A sweet tamarind juice
 Tomato sauce... with season, and salsa... very yummy salsa.

The atmosphere was great… so peaceful and clean and very appealing to the eye. They had great music… I wanted to get up to dance on a couple of the songs… I didn’t lol but the volume was good… not too loud where you can’t have a conversation. They also had an awesome outside patio as well, where the set up was also very pleasant.
Amalia's Breakfast- Steak, longaniza, fried plantains, two eggs, refried beans and cream.
 
Pollo Frito- Quarter of a fried chicken served with salad and Refried black beans

 
Camarones Al Mojo de Ajo- Delicious jumbo shrimp sautéed with fine chopped garlic, margarine and parsley
 Homemade Tortillas... The best.

 751 N. Virgil Ave. 
Los Angeles, CA 90029

GoodBye Summer!


So this year, I only got to go to the beach, twice. I wish I would’ve had the chance to go more often. But I'm glad I at least got the chance to go and I had a great time with my boys!  

 Another favorite thing to do after the beach…is stopping by Subway to eat fresh and going then going to the comic store. How awesome is this place? I love just being there. It makes me feel like a hero.

15900 Crenshaw Blvd, #B, Gardena, CA 90249

They have awesome prices on comics.

 Duff beer :)


Yup, my new obsession is Captain America ♥   

Summer should get a speeding ticket.

Baublebar first purchase

On a roll with my shopping...lol So I ordered this cute bracelet from Bauble bar. There were other amazing jewelry I wanted to buy but it sold out so quickly. So if you’re interested you need to buy soon. Honestly! So I was overall happy with my purchase. I was afraid that the quality of my new bracelet was going to be disappointing but not at all. I love it! I love it so much I ordered some earring on Friday from there last summer buried bauble promo they had. Basically they mark down a piece of jewelry to $10.00, they give you a hint and you have to find it before they sell out. I had missed all the searches before, so I was on it on Friday and luckily found it on my first guess.

But no worries… just found out that they’re going to have a new promotional sale on Friday’s… basically if you buy $30 worth of their cute jewelry… you get a free item if you find the buried bauble.

So check out the site and see what you like…


Click - BAUBLE BAR



I love that fact that they send you a personalized note… so sweet… handwritten too.

Came inside this velvet bag with a snap button.


Like Baublebar website says-

Baublebar lets you build your ultimate jewelry box guilt free.
