Three generations of LOVE

I am a pretty lucky girl. I've been blessed to have amazing people in my life.
The two gals to the right of me in this picture are reasons to why I'm so lucky.
My mom and daughter and my best friends. My mom is the person I go to for advise and my daughter is who I pass advise (or craziness) down to.
I love this picture taken at Angel's baby shower.
I love you mom, gracias por todo!!
Angel, I love you my baby!!

Have a great day! Love, Suzy

Fun with Friends

I just got home from an awesome day with my little Sierra and Erin and her girls. We went to Gilroy Gardens. It was blazing hot but fun!!!
Sierra didn't want to get wet at first but then went crazy in the water park.
It was so great to spend time with Erin! She's just so much fun!! As you all know, I love that girl!!
On our way home I asked Sierra if she was tired and she said, "not really". I looked back to see her a few minutes later and she was OUT COLD!
Here are a few pictures of our day.




Thank you Emi, Mari, and Erin for making our day soooo freaking fun!!

Hugs, Suzy

Visas, friends, baby showers, puppies, and more

So today I got my VISA to go to Brazil. HOLY COW who knew it would be so hard to get one.
I had to fill out applications, take pictures, bring itineraries, yadda yadda and more yadda yaddas.
I went with my gal pal Wei (thanks girl) to San Francisco to go to the consulate. When we arrived we grabbed a number. I looked up and saw that they were on #180. We were #195. It took HOURS to get to #195 but when it was all over, I got my visa.
So it's official, Brazil says they are crazy enough to let me in, I wonder if they know what they have done! LOL Brazil will never be the same again.
I can't wait. I'll be there in a few weeks. EEEKKK!
I'll be in San Paulo and then I'm going to Rio!!

On Sunday Christiane and Pattie through a baby shower for Angel. It was soooo beautiful! There were a lot of people there and we had the best time EVER!
I'll post pictures soon.

Like usual gotta say how grateful I am for my friends!!! ERIN, I love you girl!!!! You're a lifer (someone you know will be in your life forever!) PO...girl you are my sister!!! I love you my darlin!!! I love you Christiane, Pattie, Wei, Linda, Jeannie, Emelyn, Carla, Satyn, Janice, and Nicole. You gals ROCK!

A dream come true

I have heard the words, " I want my own puppy" a thousand times. A thousand times I have told her the same thing, "when you're older".
On her last birthday we sat down and watched an old movie called, My dog skip. It was such a cute movie about a boy who gets a dog and he brings him so much happiness. Sierra smiled, giggled, and cried through out the entire movie.
When it was over the words, "Mommy I want a puppy so much!" came out of her mouth.
I told her that we would start "LOOKING" and "RESEARCHING" puppies and that we would get her one when she turned eight.
I remembered the puppy place where we got Sassy and planned to go there one day. We were on our walk from my store to Starbucks and I heard the sounds of puppies. I looked around and saw that a cute little puppy store was opening that day.
Sierra was in HEAVEN!!! We hung out there for a while and played with all the puppies. The owner Joey is a doll and talked with Sierra and I for a long time.
Well since that day we have been there almost EVERY DAY hanging out and helping with a lot of different things.
We have really got to know them and we love them to pieces.
As a thank you for all the help Joey gave Sierra her very own puppy.
The words, "I'm so happy I can explode" came out of her mouth.
She got to choose her own puppy and this is the one that she wanted.
This really is a dream come true. She's so happy!!!!
Here are some of the pictures I took of her the night we picked 'Biscuit' up.

Fun with the Family

It was blazing hot but we enjoyed our time there. Here are some the pictures I took. They are soooo not in order.

Sleeping in...

wow, it feels good to sleep in. I haven't done that in a super long time. Angel opened the store for me this morning and Paul took the kids to work with him so I stayed in bed...and even though I couldn't sleep because my body is use to waking up at 7am I forced myself to stay in bed.
I watched tv, and watched tv, and watched more tv. LOL
What did I watch???? The Olympics, The Illusionist, and Batman Forever (don't ask me why).
I do so much during the week it was really nice to just sleep in.

"I'm warning you Suzy......"

"I'm going to take off your phone". Those are the words that came out of Paul's mouth the other day. WHY???
Because I've been baadddddddddddddddddddddddddd! I use my cell phone so much that I go over every month.
Well he warned me and warned me that he was going to take it off a few months ago and he finally did! Just because I went over 3,000 minutes. I'm sure I had important things to talk about.
"Erin....what ya doing?"
"Rocio do you want to go to La Fondue?"
"random stranger....why is the sky so blue?"
Well it was off and he didn't put it on for a while. The girls would laugh at me because I was having serious withdrawls.
So I need to watch my phone usage. It's getting out of control again.
The funny thing is...that I actually don't like using the phone. Isn't that wierd? The only time I like to be on it is when I use the cell phone. It's like it's calling out my name in a sweet intoxicating voice and I pick it up with love. my precious
Regular phones? don't like them but oh well. I need to use them more. So everyone that calls me on my cell phone....help a sister out....call me at work. LOL
Have a good one.

Something you don't know about me...I am so addicted to this site...

The Internet Movie Database, aka imdb

Everytime I watch a movie or watch a tv show I look it up at that site and look up the movie stars. Don't ask me why but I like to find out if a star is a son or daughter of someone famous or if they have famous siblings. LOL I also want to know what they are working on.

Today I watched an episode of FAMILY MATTERS, don't ask me why. I must have been bored. I looked up "Eddy Winslow" and found out he's the voice of Jazz from Transformers.

I do this for EVERY movie I watch. It's a sickness.

Anyone else like this site? Please tell me I'm not alone. LOL
Hugs
Suzy

***********************ADDING a new piece of I'm a dork NEW information I just found out that is going to make me sound soooooooooooooooooooo lame*****************

I turned on the tv this morning and a movie called, A man of La Mancha was on. It's a musical that I've never watched. I was about to turn the channel when I saw a familiar face.

It was the face of Gino Conforti. You may not recognize his real name but if you were a serious THREE'S COMPANY fan you'll remember this name, Felipe. Do you remember him? He was another chef and Jack took his job. He was HILARIOUS!
I had no idea he was the original fiddler in Fiddler on the roof.
Okay I'm a dork but you knew that already.

Back to the regular schedule program...LOL
