Life: Friday Ramblings

Instead of listing my bi-weekly ramblings, I'd like to change it up in honor of 2016.
This week's Friday Ramblings will be a final reflection on this past year.
See ya later, 2015!  2016 has a real tough act to follow thanks to you!


January 2015
We began RCIA classes which proved to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
It made me want to get more active involved in the church.  It also brought Carlos and I closer together.

March 2015
My God son turned a whopping FIVE years old this month.
He's really growing up to be such a smart, caring, and handsome young man!  Clearly he takes after me...

April 2015
My husband was baptized, received communion, and was confirmed making him officially a Catholic.
My baby girl also turned 2 that month!  We celebrated with a huge pancake party at IHop. 
We also welcomed Mushy's first pet, Kyle the fish, into our family.
Between Easter and these two events, there was lot of celebrating this past April!

July 2015
I married the love of my life and went on an amazing honeymoon this past July.
Talk about one of the best months ever!  This month will be celebrated for the rest of our lives.

August 2015
We enjoyed a fabulous ending to a fantastic honeymoon and celebrated my 27th birthday.
My great, great aunt passed this past month.  May she rest in peace always watch over us.

October 2015
Halloween was a fun memory to cherish filled lots of laughs, pizza, family, and good friends.
My mushy rocked an Olaf costume despite all of her father's protests.

November 2015
My cousin and best friend turned a whopping 30 years old this past November!
We celebrated with a gigantic, catered affair that was lots and lots of fun.

December 2015
We bought and moved into the most perfect little house where our family will continue to make memories!
This was the most scariest, stressful, and REWARDING thing I've ever done.


Here's to another year of happy memories and successful adventures.
I truly wish the same for all of you!
Now, let's dive head first right into 2016!

  13. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) If you want to stop your divorce.
    (10 If you want to divorce your husband.
    (11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
