Toby Mac | #ThisIsNotATestTOUR

Hello Amigos!

It’s been a while I know but I’m so excited to share with you what my weekend has looked like this far. Yesterday, I went with one of my friends to a Toby Mac concert. As many of you know I live in South Florida and the last time TMac (as I call him) stepped foot in Miami was about 10 years ago. So, you know your girl had to go to this concert! God was good and opened a door with a friend that was looking for someone to go with and I gladly replied and the rest of the night was HIStory in the making!

This is Not A Test Tour was off the hook! There were 3 artist that opened up first starting with some chick by the name of Hollyn, now can I just say that girls voice is one of the most powerful voices I’ve heard in a long time, her edgy tune and hip hop swag was out of this world. The next artist to show up and bring the house down was Colton Dixon, dude has got the look,  the band, the hawk and the voice! He’s the whole package, if you like punk rock you will be sure to fall in love with this guy. And last but not least Britt Nicole, what a sweet girl, I didn’t get to meet her or any of the artist but just the way she carried herself on and off stage, she was filled with love, grace and compassion. You could feel it. As soon as she hit the stage you felt this wave of energy and fun! It was my first time listening to her and I am not disappointed she was a top favorite of the night for sure.

My friend and I were sitting pretty close to the stage which was pretty awesome. So awesom we kinda lost our hearing by the time the concert was over! Ha!

Can you imagine sitting in the stands with me singing along and rocking out?! This has been one of the best concerts that I have been in my life!

There was an intermission for about 10min or less and during that time I decided to use the restroom I practically ran so I wouldn’t be caught up in the line, thankfully when I arrived there was only 5 people in front of me. Then I ran to get some water which was $4 and then I ran quickly to get my seat which as I stated before was pretty darn close to the stage. I took a load off and sat for a bit and then one of my favorite artist of all time and his DiverseCity Band came out and the party started…

Totally in shock and in disbelief that I was standing feet away from an artist I’ve grown up listening to. I used to choreograph a lot of his music and still til this day do. I love his passion for God and people. I also love his funky fresh, hip hop, pop, reggae swag he puts into each record. It’s a mix of epicness.





For some of my favorite Toby Mac videos check out my Instagram page for the footage.

This concert is going to go down in history for me, not only because TMac is one of my favorite musically talented geniuses but because the guy remains humble and true to himself, a devoted husband, a great father and most importantly a faithful follower of Christ.

One Love.



32nd Never Looked So Good!

Hello Amigos!

You read correctly, today your blog writer turns 32! I’ve been roaming this earth for 32 years, I cannot believe it… just yesterday I was dying to turn 18 years old so I could go wherever I wanted without having to give explanations to anyone! I’m honestly in shock that I’m getting older and older, but I guess that’s the way life moves forward. 

Today I woke up at 7am because my sister and I had the plan to go to lunch at BJ Brewhouse at the Falls. First, I showered, got ready, did my makeup and as I was doing that my sister called me to let me know she was running late. So, obviously I took a bit longer to do my face, a girl’s gotta look good on her birthday! When she arrived I drove her to her doctors appointment and then we returned to go eat. As were sitting down my mom and nieces came through our table and started singing “Happy Birthday” and I was completely surprised! I didn’t expect to see my mom because she had called me earlier that morning to tell me that she wasn’t feeling well. But, let me tell you they surely Surprised me! 



I had the best time with my family, I definitely missed my niece Genesis and nephew Danny, but understand they had school and homework to finish. I do wish they would’ve been able to make it although there is always next year. The food at BJ Brewhouse is so delicious and affordable, you can’t beat that! After there I went with my sister to Victoria’s Secret and bought myself some Christmassy Pj’s because I had a $10 off coupon I had received by mail, so you know your girl went in! Ha!

After that I decided to come home and relax the rest of the afternoon. When my awesome hubby came home he brought me a beautiful bag with the name “Pandora” written across from it. I had sent him a list of charms I wanted this week and he ended buying me two. I absolutely love them! 

And th Alex & Ani bracelet was given to me by my niece Genesis for my birthday, she was the first one to gift me something. The charm (which you can’t see) has the word “Aunt” written on it. ❤️ 

I truly had an awesome birthday this year and am so thankful for everything and everyone in my life. God has been oh so good to me without me deserving His unconditional love. 

I am blessed.



Cone 06 Pottery Painting Studio

hello amigos,

As some of you may or may not know I was in Naples, Fl this past week for my mom’s birthday. It was a total surprise for her and all the pictures and video of that day are in my Instagram so you can check them out there. We had so much fun celebrating her day and it was surely something special because she wasn’t expecting it at all. The plan was for me to arrive at the Cheesecake Factory at 12noon and surprise her there. It was a fun weekend indeed. The week that I spent up there for my sister’s birthday my niece and I decided to have a day together at a Pottery Paint Studio that just opened it’s doors in Naples. I was excited because I love getting my hands dirty especially when it comes to creating something beautiful.

My niece and I drove to Cone 06 Pottery Painting Studio and may I add the place itself isn’t huge but it does have a variety of ceramics ready to be painted. There are 250 pieces to choose from, I went in knowing what kind of pottery I wanted to paint, I wanted something for my jewelry, I wanted to paint a plate. So, as we walked in my niece asked me to start looking for a plate that I would love as I looked I saw this cute owl plate that stole my heart away. I have two favorite animals 1. an elephant and 2. owls I don’t know why my obsession with these creatures but I love them. Prices range from $8 and up and the great thing about this place is that there are no studio fees! Meaning, you only pay for the piece you’re about to paint.

You can have birthday parties, corporate parties, adult parties, baby & bridal shower parties at this location by calling them and reserving a table for your party. You can follow them on Facebook for updates on new pottery! Can you tell I’m completely smitten by this place?! not only because the cost includes the painting, glazing and firing but because the service was simply perfection. If you have never painted before one of the staff members will sit with you and help you paint your piece. They are kind and willing to answer all of your questions or concerns. My niece had gone there a couple of times so when we went she helped me paint my piece, I can’t say she was patient with me, but I had fun bugging her non the less.

And here is the final product glazed and fired up at home…

the owl is currently on my nightstand looking absolutely adorable if I do say so myself…

And just like there is a variety of ceramic pieces there is also a variety of colors and paint. For my first piece (of many to come) I think I did a pretty good job. It could’ve looked a lot worse. I love displaying my bracelets. Now, that Christmas is around the corner my niece and I are planning to take the family to paint some ornaments for our family Christmas tree. I’ll make sure my husband paints one for him and one for snowball and i’ll paint one for me and one for Cody. I’m looking forward to making something for Thanksgiving too… good thing you can get as creative as you wish!

If you’re ever in the Naples, Fl area go check out Cone 06 Pottery Painting Studio! You won’t regret it. In fact, you will enjoy every minute of it especially if you take a friend, family or that special person you love.



Mom’s Birthday

Hello Amigos!

Today is a special day and if you haven’t figured it out by the title it’s my Mom’s Birthday today. My sister & I had planned for me to drive up to see my mom on her special day, we agreed to meet at The Cheesecake Factory in Naples, Fl at 12 noon. As many of you know I live in Miami so the drive is approximately 2hrs. The SURPRISE was well worth it. 

My niece arrived first to the restaurant and I met with her and we chatted a bit before my mom, sister and nephew arrived. I kept texting my sister to know the step of step as to where they were at the time. I hadn’t eaten breakfast and I was so hungry by that point. I decided to lay down on the bench that we were sitting in as soon as my sister text me that they were parking. I told my niece to let me know when they were walking towards our table… And here is my mom’s reaction…

As you can see her reaction is priceless! My niece took the video on her Snapchat the caption reads “Surprised Grandma” 🙂 My nephew and sister are seen laughing and enjoying my mom’s reaction. Today we had so many laughs and made some fun memories! I still have another surprise for my mom, which I will disclose a little bit later on the blog!

I’m so grateful for my Mom’s life, she’s the bravest, strongest, most loving, caring, SELFLESS person in my life. I cannot imagine doing life without her. Today is all about her, she is to be celebrated and honored. Well, honestly, she is to be honored daily. My mom has sacrificed so much for us, she deserves nothing but the best. So far the surprises have been good! And they keep on coming. 

  Cheers to another year Mommy! We are blessed to have you in our lives. We love you so very much! May the Lord continue to bless your life daily. May his grace and love embrace your every being. 

You are loved. 
Happiest of Birthdays to YOU! 




hello amigos

On Monday, October 12th, 2015 was my sister’s birthday and my mom and I decided to surprise her by coming to visit her. It’s a 2hr drive but it was well worth it. This whole week we’ve been here, I go back home to the hubby soon enough. I look forward to going home, I miss my hubby and dogs aka “my boys.” Every time I think of my husband and dogs I get emotional and happy because I love them so much. My husband is the best in all sense of the word, he is my support system and the only person that keeps me sane at all times. I am truly blessed.

Today, is Saturday, October 17th, 2015 and it currently is 7:30pm as I am writing this post. I’m sitting in the family room watching an old black & white movie about a family that I think no family today can relate too. They seem so perfect in films, I don’t believe in perfection, it doesn’t exist. Now, my mom changed the channel to an English film translated to Spanish about a 6th grader that has shot up an elementary school. I don’t even know why I’m writing this… its kind of hilarious, I must be delirious….

I haven’t written in a while, I think the last time I wrote this blog had just turned 2! I don’t want to make excuses for why I haven’t been writing, I am not going to, the truth is I haven’t felt inspired for a while. When I write it is very therapeutic for me personally because I get to write down all my thoughts and share them with you all. Today, I wanted to write to you to let you know that I am still here and I haven’t left. It’s been a long run on WordPress and I’ve been considering moving my blog but a little bit about that later on. I’ve been pondering a lot of things but haven’t gotten around to actually doing them. My brain is busy with so many things I have to do and like I said before my blog hasn’t been my priority in a long time now.

I will be updating and writing this upcoming week.

I won’t promise, because I don’t want to break that promise.

If you know anything about prayer, I ask you to keep me in prayers.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sick Days…

hello amigos..

It’s no secret that I have been sick since Friday, the first thing my husband asked me was if I had gotten it from our 6yr old niece.. I thought about it and it wasn’t her, I say this because she is always sick. Last weekend as some of you may or may not know I had a family emergency where I had to leave to Naples because my nephew was rushed to the ER. Thankfully, he was rushed in time and is doing better, I honestly do not know exactly with what the doctor diagnosed him with but I believe it has something to do with his heart since he has to go see a cardiologist now. But, anyway, this post isn’t about him, I would appreciate the prayers though.

As I previously said I got really sick on Friday morning and all day yesterday was a struggle to eat or drink. I became sick the entire weekend and thought I was getting better when Monday morning rolled around, but by Monday afternoon I felt my sinuses clog up, yesterday I had a sinus headache all day long with a side effect of a runny nose too. It really is a drag to feel like this, I’m hoping to God that I get better before the weekend arrives. I really do not like taking anything when it comes to my body unless it’s absolutely necessary. I like letting my body heal on it’s own, I believe that if God created my body he also created it to heal with time on it’s own without any medical intervention. Now, don’t get me wrong if there is something seriously wrong where I need medication I will take it.

So, I apologize ahead of time that there isn’t a fun post for today but I am still sick with a sinus infection/headache which isn’t a good combo for this week. I didn’t want to not post anything at all because I want you all to know what is happening with lil old me.

Thank you all for understanding
