90 days and counting

Disclaimer: Photo Challenge content to change without notice.

Today's photo challenge day 90 is- Your current school photo.

Deep inside, somewhere I guess I would hope to be back in school, but at this point in my life I am not, so for me it's impossible for me to post such a photo.

So instead of an actual school photo I decided to go back into memory lane and post the one picture I have of our high school prom.

This is me with some of my closest girlfriends.

Check out my blog outfit and the lovely flower I am wearing (given to me by my Dad!).

Well... that's it for today. Have a great weekend... 10 days to go... Woo-Hoo!!!!

the fridge diet

Just because I am the kind of person that loves to give expecting nothing in return, today I am going to start my post with a FREE diet tip...

This is called the "fridge diet"!

See, it's as easy as that, you just get rid of your donkey and in a matter of hours, you'll realized that you've lost about 10lbs... just try it and you'll see!!!

Now, off to the good stuff.

-(yeah right, like I could actually top my previous tip, LOL!)-

The longer I go with this whole photo challenge, the more I realized that the person who came up with the list was lacking some creativity like on a day like today.

Photo challenge day 89- What's in your fridge?

C'mon people, do you really want to see what's in my fridge now that I just got rid of my donkey, and I'm losing some weight...

Well, you asked for it, so here it is.

1. Smart Balance Butter 2. Fat Free Jello 3. leftover brown and wild rice 4. Light and Fit Yogurt 5. 12 Grain Bread 6. Chocolate Chip Cookies 7. Hamburger Buns 8. Egg Whites 9. Turkey Breast 10. Cheese drawer 11 and 11 1/2. Milk 12. Soy Milk 13. Bread Fruit 14. Cheap Soda 15. Papaya

can u keep a secret?

When I first started blogging, I was very fearful that nobody out there would be interested in reading me, or should I say reading my blog (well, isn't it the same deal?).

Then I started taking my first steps into blogger world and although there were times when I would fall empty on ideas, I kept on going...

Imagine that..

Me? empty of ideas... as if I don't have an amazing, super interesting life to share!

Well, I do have two crazy fun dogs that fill my life with happiness, plus both are pretty photogenic- and trust me, that I've taken plenty advantage of that!

Then there's also the option of sharing my darkest deepest thoughts (not that I've ever shared any of those, yet!).

After a few days into blogging, I started psychoanalyzing the true meaning of blogging life and what it really means to have a blog.

Later on I came up with the realization that it is not about the comments, but about having  your own space and share your thoughts with the world....

Well, here I am now, closer to my 2nd year as a blogger and I must say I was very wrong, so let me tell you a little secret....

Well... that's not entirely true, but it's definitely much nicer when you blog and it appears as there's something out there reading it.

But even if this is not happening, I am blogging for my own amusement and pleasure... so there, I said it, now comment! LOL

In other news... I am kinda, sorta getting tired of this photo challenge thingy, but in a way it's good that I am already in day 88 and it's a picture of- Your bathroom.

I must say that one thing is that my bathroom is small... in fact I was unable to take a whole picture of it because of how small it is... But it doesn't really feel that way when I use it, but certainly does when I try to show through a camera lens.

So in order to show my bathroom I had to take 3 different pictures and then I paste them all together so you can have an better idea of what it looks like... Here's the finale result.

Well, have a nice day... Now comments, please?!? LOL

dear to my heart

Today being day #87 of the 100 Day Photo Challenge, it calls for a photo of- Something you hold dear to your heart.

In my case I hold many people, memories and even places dear to my heart, but not as many material things make it  close to such an important place.

When it comes to memories, those of my childhood hold a very important and dear place in my heart, and although they really are only memories, those times and experiences help shaped me into the person that I am today.

me in the front (holding a bunny) with 4 of my cousins

I had a fantastic childhood, and being that I am one of 43 cousins from just one side of the family, I was always surrounded by family that took care of me.

Now, if only I could hold on to all those memories in my mind, but the older I get the less I can remember.

And although the memories are still there; the good times, the laughs, maybe some sad moments and even the hard learning experiences. I know they are all stored up together dear to my heart.

Because I know my heart is the keeper of my inner child, who sometimes still comes out to see the world as if it's for the first time and helps me see the wonders of life with new and curious eyes, holding the hand of God as if taking my very first steps.

Have a wonderful day!!!

Day 86!

On today's photo challenge I am supposed to post a picture of- Something your Mom bought you.

Well, in my case it goes beyond something she bought me, as this year for my birthday, my Mom got me this beautiful and stylish, hand made by herself, Scarf!

Isn't it beautiful? I love the colors, the fact that is so light and easy to wear, it's definitely not a cold fighting scarf but a fashionable one that can be used as an accessory,  I love it!

Thanks Mami for the beautiful gift!!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday :)

shorts on a Sunday

Photo Challenge Day 84- Your favorite pair of short.

Well, I don't really have a favorite pair of short but I do have a favorite pair of boxer shorts.

I bought them about 5 years ago in the US at a Old Navy and they are most comfortable piece of clothing that I own.

Yes, now the fall into the old category as the seams are coming off and part of the waist band elastic is almost all exposed.

But c'mon they are still very comfy plus they have doggies all over them. I am not looking forward to the day I have to trow them out, so I am not wearing them much lately to delay this day!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
