I was awarded the Liebster Award by the lovely blog For A Lucky Girl. I have answered 11 questions about myself below. In order to make this more fun, I have decided to extend this award to each of you. Please answer these 11 questions on your blog and let me know on a comment below. I would love to get to know you better! XO.
1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
 Ready? The sound people make when they eat Doritos. I cannot sit next to somebody eating them. It bothers me so much that if I have no option and find myself obligated to sit next to someone who is eating them, I will eat some too in order to block out the noise with my own noise. I know, weird! I did ask if you were ready.
2. What would you sing at Karaoke night?
Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You -Lauryn Hill.
3. If you could have dinner with any celebrity (dead or alive) who would you dine with?

Esther from the Hebrew Bible. She was graceful, brave, loyal to
her people, and faithful to God. She was an orphan who had nothing, but became the queen of the Persian Empire, and did a beast of a job at it.
4. What is your top played song on iTunes?

It changes every week, but my favorite song this week has been “Song
of Solomon by Jesus Culture “. This song reminds me how big the love of God is for me. He has always been there through the valleys, and the dark of night. The biggest mountain and the deepest of the sea seem so small before Him. It’s refreshing to have a love like that.

5. If you had to pick your last meal on Earth what would it be?
The Caribbean girl in me loves everything seafood. I would go with a seafood paella. 
 
6. If you could live in the world of any movie/book/TV show, what story would you live in?
If I had to pick one movie, it would be the Time Traveler’s Wife or Inception. I love the Time Traveler’s Wife because of the beautiful scenery, and the love story behind it. But Inception would be my second choice. I would not mind being stuck in time with Leonardo DiCaprio ;)

7. How do you eat your Oreos? One bite at a time.

8. If you could be anyone in the world (besides yourself) would you do it? Who would you be?
No, I love myself even though that was not always the case. I
wish I could go back to my teenage years. I would tell myself to stop worrying, and that everything was going to turn out great.
9. Who is your ultimate fashion icon?
Oscar De La Renta for his timeless, simple, and elegant
style.

10. What is the funniest pick-up line that has been used on you?
I have a long list of horrible pick up lines, but the most
recent one happened at the car wash.  A guy approached me while I waited for my car, and it went something like this:
Guy: Shaniqua, remember me? We went to high schooltogether.
Me: I am not Shaniqua, and I do not know you.
Guy: Sorry, you just look so familiar. Would you give me your number?
You can imagine how that ended after such a horrible pick up line.

11. Do you watch Star Wars in chronological order (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3) or in numeric order? I have never watched Star Wars. And, I intend to keep it that way
.
Thank you so much for the nomination! It was so much fun sharing details about me. Can't wait to read your answers!






To my nephew:

Tuesday, April 14, 2015




To my nephew,

I am in the delivery room anxiously waiting to meet you. Your grandmother is here in the delivery room, while your father stepped out to the vending machine. Truth is, he's too excited and too nervous to sit still. 

There is something you don't know, and might never fully understand, and that is the extent of our love for you. We prayed for you for five long years, and God has finally granted us the honor of welcoming you to this world. 

You have been blessed with two exceptional parents. Your father is the second best man in the world, the first one is your grandfather (he raised your mother and I). Your father is kind, honest, smart, humble and a man of honor. You are going to learn so much from him! Your mother is loving, caring, strong, wise, diligent, an amazing sister, an amazing daughter, and an amazing wife. I cannot wait to see her play the role of mother.

The photo pictured on this post was taken on our last family trip, the one we took on December 2014, five months before you were born. Your mother and I were sitting on an airplane 36,000 ft above ground. Elizabeth (your aunt), and I were trying to negotiate the seat next to your mother's seat because she is just the type of person you feel safe around. 

My little Adam, when life gets turbulent remember that you have been blessed with the best co-pilots in the world (your mother and father). Remember that we prayed for you for five years. For five long years the world waited for you, and you are finally here. You are more than special. Be kind and courageous, the God who gifted you to this world will protect and watch over you all the days of your life. 


Cannot wait to meet you,

Your Auntie Who Loves You to Pieces

Easter Sunday

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

 


 
Easter Sunday is my favorite holiday of the year. It's nice having a day to "officially" celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. My Easter Sunday traditions involve putting on a little Spring dress, attending church to celebrate the life of my savior, and then sharing a meal with family or friends.
 
Do you have any Easter Sunday traditions? I would love to hear.
 
Dress: New York and Co/ Eva Mendez Collection
