In observation of National Day of the Cowboy, my girlfriends and I went to Triple Door to watch the Buckaroo’s new show, 50 Bales of Hay – a Fifty Shades of Grey parody that features ribald comedy and ripped abs!!! Sooo much fun and excitement going on, that I could barely contain my giddiness and screams throughout the show!!!

My amazing 4th of July weekend consisted of…a beautiful beach house, fishing, BBQ, fireworks, drinking games, sun bathing, and a dirty 30 birthday celebration. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend of total relaxation and laughing our butts off!!

Before heading back home, we stop at Freeland Café for a delicious “hawaiian-style” breakfast!

Hope you all had a safe and wonderful 4th of July celebration!

Special thanks to the Cartwright family!

Spending Christmas in the town of Aliaga, where my dad grew up was truly an experience I will always remember.

On Christmas Eve, we attended the midnight mass at Nuestra Señora De las Saleras Parish.

Afterwards we went over to my Tita Ofelia’s house for a late night spaghetti&bread dinner.

The next morning, I was given the honor of playing Santa Claus for the day. I assumed I was just going to pass out presents to family members but instead it was a bigger role than that. I was in charge of handing out money and candy to kids all around the neighborhood. Like Halloween in a sense, but obviously better! There were well over 300 kids that came by the house and blessed me (kids take your hand and press it against their forehead as a sign of respect for their elders). It definitely felt good giving back to the kids that don’t have a lot. It made me realize how fortunate and lucky I am.
