30 day blog challenge: DAY 26

A place I've been to:
Catalina Island
(small island off the coast of California)

I went there when I was about 7 or 8. I'm trying to convince hubby and son to go soon but they're not really the "lets go out and do stuff" type:{ but I'd love to go again one day.

Last night I had to make a quick stop on my way home from work to CVS to buy laundry detergent and saw the new Wet & wild Mega last nail polish.  The colors scream SPRING, not my favorite season but its pretty.

the colors I bought are:
210B Tropicalia (left)
209B candy-licious/rose bon bon (right)

I wore the tropicalia color. It looks more orange in the picture but it's suck a pretty coral, I love it!
It only took 2 coats:)

30 day blog challenge: DAY 23

6.My BIGGEST fear is losing my dad
7.I use to read up to 3 books a week in high school
8.I eat hot Cheetos with milk. If you must know why its because in elementary school kids always brought them and the only thing they'd give us to drink was milk...therefore, I now can't eat them with anything else.

14.I've never really been into the "party" scene
15.I have a HORRIBLY HORRIBLY dirty mind and I'm not ashamed:)
Mine is now in need of retouching. (didn't hurt that much. tickled when they hit the hip bone)

His is perfect and doesn't need retouching. damn him.
My day has been good. Bought tickets to the scrap booking expo in Anaheim at the convention center across the street from Disney land. the expo end at 6pm so I see a trip to the happiest place on earth after.

V-day cards (preview)

I went to Lowe's yesterday to buy patches and the stuff u put over the patch to seal holes in walls. whats it called??? Well anyways I was there because my HUGE wonderful Marley I guess is going through her teenage rebellious years (LOL)  and has made 3 medium sized holes in the walls of the laundry room, therefore I need to cover them up before my mom gets more mad. Since Michale's is in the same shopping center I went there too:)

I bought a lot of stuff and when i got back to the restaurant I started making cards right away.
I'm also trying to create an account to sell things I make but I'm having some issues with that at the moment. but out of the 9 cards this one is my favorite so far.

Also, I'm trying to also get into other things, not just cards. maybe book marks, cupcake toppers, baking sets (like a basket filled with everything you need to make a cake or cupcakes along with the liners and toppers and all that fun stuff)

It looks grayish blue but its a light lavender with the pink ribbon on top and on the bottom. The cupcake is on the pop dots for dimension and has a red jewel:)

30 day blog challenge: DAY 22

A letter to someone who has hurt me recently:

Well.....I'll just make it short and straight to the point.

I don't understand why you hurt me. It's almost like you get pleasure from it. I try and do everything I can for you but only to have it backfire and not ever be good enough for you.

30 day blog challenge: DAY 21

A photo of something that makes me happy:

Last September I went on a 4 day retreat with my mom and sister for church so my dad brother hubby and bro in law were alone for 4 days lol Oh and by the way I had NO phone for those 4 days:/
When I got home that Sunday night my hubby had a surprise for me. He had installed a towel rack haha and got me a BIG pink pillow. He also did ALL the laundry and cleaned the room! The BEST BEST part was the picture he drew me:) It's now the background on my phone

30 day blog challenge DAY:20

The meaning behind my blog name:

No real meaning other than I post everyday, sometimes more than once:)

But I do need to start doing more beauty blogs....which means shopping for new products to try:)

My crafts

I love arts and crafts! I use to watch Martha Stewart growing up. My dad would take me with him to his job where he worked at a church school so in the summers I'd sit in a classroom (room 5 to be exact) and watch PBS and Martha, I'd flip channels back and forth:) Growing up I'd make home made cards and invites and things like that and this year I started making them to sell. So I thought I'd share with you the few pictures I have.  I would have/should have taken pictured if i had thought of it sooner:{
Two more Christmas ones:)
I don't know why the picture wont flip right.

These are two of the Christmas cards
These are 4 of the Halloween ones I made

30 day blog challenge: DAY 18

Something I crave a lot:
Sleep is something I crave ALL the time!
the huby hates it so much but since I was little sleep was always my favorite part of the day lol
I wasn't those kids who would want to stay up late, at the age of 8 I gave myself a 10pm bedtime. The only time I would want to stay up was Christmas eve for obvious reasons.
Even if I sleep a full 8 hours I will eventually want a nap. My mom is normal when it comes to sleep, my brother is the exact as me but my sister and dad wake up way early! On Saturdays when I was 10(my bro was 21)  we would be sleeping (8am) and my sister and dad would be vacuuming or cleaning it was so hard to sleep until noon like we wanted.
Is this weird? lol let me know:)

30 day blog challenge: DAY 1

A picture of me and my family:

If you go HERE there is the picture and introduction on who is who. It's a link to my other blog. I'm too lazy to repost the pictures and captions.


I haven't done NOTD in a few days because my nails all started breaking for some reason so now they're real short :{

Last night Steve was playing N64 and I got bored of watching so I decided to do my nails even though they are super short. I can't stand short nails on me. Anyways this is a color from sally girl. Its a bright magenta that dries matte.
the bottle is so tiny and cute, the brush is good for short nails but it will most definitely not be good for long nails

30 day blog challenge: DAY 15

Something I don't leave the house without:

My Iphone.
Don't mind the screen protector it's kind of messed up lol
The main reason I cant leave home without it is because of my family constantly calling me  and if I don't answer they call over and over again and eventually call the hubby and then when they finally get a hold of me I NEVER hear the end of it about never answering their calls and not wanting to work. lol sometimes it's true but for the most part I just don't hear it.

30 day blog challenge: DAY 14 (lots of pics)

A tv show i am currently addicted to.... Sorry I can't pick one.. 
THESE are the shows I'm addicted to:
I know this is an old show, I use to watch all the time! brings back good memories, I just recently downloaded  the first 3 season and Its what I'm currently watching until all the other shows come back)

Glee: Last year when it came out I was like, whats the point? but people wouldnt be quiet about it so I gave in and loved it!

I don't remember how I got into this one but it's good!

I've loved it since season one:)

Tom welling is executive producer and in an interview he talked about the show and I was hooked lol

I have a love hate with this show. I love it because of the outfits and sometimes the story line BUT hate  because the girl who's a lesbian on the show, her acting sucks! she always has this confused/worried look on her face lol 

Cake Boss:
I love the drama of the show because they're all Italian! It reminds me so much of my family, even though were Mexican its just like on the show how we fight and work together. Plus his cakes are awesome!!!! 

Ace of Cakes:
My original cake favorite!
I started watching Duff when he did food network competitions and when I heard he was getting his own show I was like 8-0
Been a fan ever since! Actually he even has his own line of baking things at Michael's that I'm going to FINALLY go buy from today (I HOPE!):)

The vampire diaries:
First off, I'm sorry if you're a twilight fan but I hate it.
Second, I've liked vampires and zombies since I could remember:)
I think thats pretty much self explanatory.

Favorite musician and why:

YUP Metallica. I was lucky enough to see them in 2008 AND 2009

30 day blog challenge: DAY 12

A photograph of the town I live in:

This picture I got from Google.
It's the main street that goes all the way up to the canyons. My house is near the opening  of the canyon. 

This picture I took about 2 years ago when I took our son up to the canyons.
There are two dams up in the canyon this is passing the first one. This was after a fire  up in the  Angeles national forest so thats why the water is so low.

This one I also got from Google.
This picture is over 10 years old!!! Its of the old drive in! the screen is not there anymore, the marquee is though because it was declared historic it's now used to announce things for the local university.

NOTD & Review

Claims to "last up to ten days"
"fits all nails"
"easy to use"

I love how pretty these look!!!!
~Easy to apply
~Come in different patterns

~They don't fit all nails, the only one that fit was my pinky. the rest were all TOO big
~Price $9.99 (for the quality, its too much)
~It hasn't even been 3 hours and they're already chipping and I'm not doing any real work.
~They wouldn't stick down
~Right after applying the top coat the edges near my cuticle started to curl up

Overall, I really don't like it. I probably wont buy it again and I really wish I hadn't paid $10 for a total of nice looking nails that only lasted an hour.:(

30 day blog challenge: DAY NINE

A picture of the item I last purchased:

The last thing(s) that I bought were for the hubby. At the Raiders store in City Walk. Im not a Raiders fan or a football fan for that matter but he is, and his team is the Raiders. Even though I'm not a fan, I must admit the store was pretty cool. They had so much stuff! They even had nail stickers! how cute! 
Bottle opener. This is his 3rd one! They keep breaking. My theory is that its because  they suck LOL but I just say that to tease him:)

This is one of those flag thingys that you can hang on the wall that is made out of felt. It now hand on the outside of our bedroom door....
I got the pictures from Google:)
