Wordless Wednesday – Chuck E. Cheese at 10 AM

"This is the best day ever, Mom!" That is what my 5 year old told me right before she met Chuck E. Cheese.  She was so excited to have her 5th birthday at one of her favorite places.  I've been hearing a lot about a Chuck E. Cheese party for months now but I was reluctant because the place can get kind of "wacko" with all the kids running around. Let's not forget about the parents - who can also get "wild" too. Have you heard about adults fighting at Chuck E. Cheese? I could not believe it … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Two Girls

I've had a busy week. My daughters birthdays are just days apart (11 yr. old is the 7th and 5 yr. old is today) from each other and I've been feeling overwhelmed lately.  Good thing my 11 year old was ok with not having a party this year (last year she had a huge party) so we are celebrating my 5 year old's birthday at good ol' Chuck E Cheese's with all of her friends from school. So happy birthday to my big girl and happy birthday to my little girl. Just know that you will always be … [Read more...]

Mom Of A Teenager

My son is 13 years old today. I can't believe this. It's official. I'm a mom of a teenager! I know I'm not that old but I sure do feel old.  I was 21 when I had him. I can still remember the day I found out I was pregnant.  I bought a pregnancy test at a pharmacy store on Central Ave. in Yonkers, NY.  My boyfriend (my husband now) and I decided to eat lunch at Nathan's not far away.  After we ate, I told him that I wanted to take the test.  He wanted me to wait until we got home.  … [Read more...]

Almost WW – Surprise!

Lately, I have been totally addicted to Bakerella. She has the most amazing cupcakes, cake pops and goodies you could ever imagine.  I wish I was there to taste each and every goodness. So since I can't be there, I tried to be Ms. Bakerella for several hours and made this: and this: It took me about 4 hours from start to finish.  It wasn't that difficult to make but since it was my first time making them, it took awhile.  It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.  She makes it … [Read more...]

I had a great day!

I had such a nice birthday that it lingered on to the rest of the week.  So that is the reason why I haven't blog since Tuesday (So I thought; look down below this post and you'll know why).  I really had an awesome day, thanks to my husband.  He was like my personal shopper/personal bag carrier.  It was nice because he hates to shop, especially when it comes to clothes shopping because I am so picky. First, we went to Best Buy to day dream about the big flat screen LCD TV's.  They are so … [Read more...]

In honor of my birthday,

Happy Birthday Papi!

Today's my Dad's birthday.  He would've been 56 years old.  Even though he is not here with me in real life, I feel he is with me in spirits.  He died 14 years ago, at the young age of 42, from complications with diabetes -  Just a week after we came back from our vacation from Florida.  It was a HUGE shocker to the whole family because he looked so healthy.  No one knew he was sick. He was always very thoughtful, lovable and a very caring person.  Everyone that knew him, loved him.  He was … [Read more...]
