New Year Wishes

For last year's words belong
to last year's language
and next year's words
await another voice. - T.S. Eliot

Hope you guys have a wonderful new years eve and a year full of love and joy. Here is to an amazing 2009!! Happy new year!!!

Tidying up 2008

Why do I feel that New Year’s Eve is such a big deal? After all it is just another night before another day. Scientifically it is, but in my mind it is so much more than that. The last night of the year is a time to tie up all loose ends and wipe the slate clean for the coming 365 days.

A friend once told me that the way you spend New Year’s Eve is how the whole year will be dictated. My grandmother passed away last December 31. Last New Year’s I felt sad, unsure, and uncertain - not a winning combination. The whole 2008 I felt like I had been run over by a school bus and for some reason it kept backing up on top of me! Aaahhhhh, again? Really?? A year like ’08 should never, ever, be repeated again!

This upcoming year I want things to be different. I was to feel 100% sure and in total control of my life. Is that weird or even possible? I want to say goodbye to the old and hello! to the new. I want to wake up every day renewed and in charge – easier said than done, but only time will tell.

Ok, Emails have been written, telephone calls will be made, and texts are ready to be sent tonight. So, now, I am just sitting here waiting for the clock to hurry up and move its little hands and put an end to a horrible year. Good riddance 2008!!

Milly's Graduation Party

It was so cold outside! Really, really cold for Houston. I debated going out, but decided that if I would have stayed home I would regret it (specially since the husband had his friends over to play poker and video games). So, I braved the elements and headed out. Phil (@ellis_king) met me for dinner and then we headed to my girl Milly's graduation party. The party was outside (crap!), but I was glad I had taken my Michelin jacket with me thinking that I was going to dispose of it once I got inside and I would look amazing in pictures. I was however hearing open toe shoes (double crap)! By the end of the night my little piggly wigglys were frozen solid. After the party we headed over to Shadow Bar for the after-party. Good times!!


  • 09:33 Why, why, why, does it have to be cold today. I was supposed to go to La Strada today, but patios and cold weather don't mix in my book. :( #
  • 13:59 Ok, I must say this even though I might be jinxing myself, my third kid is a freaking genius, I might have an Einstein in the making! #

Twitter Update

I did end up heading out for Mother's Night Out. We meet at Buca di Beppo and had a reservation for the kitchen table. Kind of weird to be hearing what is going on in the kitchen and having every single waiter stop by your table and tell you what they are carrying out. Anyway, I did have a good time, I skipped last month, so it was nice to see everyone again. I also took them all a little Christmas gift - a lottery ticket, but only one person won and they only won three dollar! Rip off!! I guess not the fun and exciting surprise I was hoping for.


  • 11:12 Taking lunch to Baby Girl at school. Man, it is busy out here! #
  • 12:15 Taking an hour and a half break before heading back to Baby Girls school to partay!! #
  • 12:37 I don't think that I have shared with you guys the fact that I have been overeating lately. Nothing to do with the holidays. I am just bad. #
  • 15:29 @emmiegrn They will LOVE you!! #
  • 15:32 Back home from Baby Girl's Holiday party. Every time I go to her school I have a new admiration for teachers. They look normal. #
  • 17:16 Contemplating whether I should step out for MNO tonight or stay home. I HAVE been running around all day with the kids. ;) #

The After Picture

Last Day of School

Baby Girl woke me up VERY early to get her hair done for the last day of school. For some reason she gets super excited about it; while I am looking like the Home Alone kid...AHHHHHHHHHH! Three kids and two weeks off from school.

KDChi Emerald Ball

OMG!! It was great to see, after so long, some of my old sister and meet some of the new ones. The night was fun, and yes, I ended up wearing my Kay Unger dress to the occasion. I will save the BCBGMaxAzria one for a formal in April (and hopefully it will fit amazingly then, I, of course, will keep you guys posted).

Monk Garb Coming Back in Fashion!

Cracking myself up...again!! It seems that the monk look is back in fashion. The commercial for this "new innovation" has people cheering at a sporting event. Why would anyone go out like that??

Link to Monk Garb. The video is hilarious.

Great Christmas gift since I am absolutely sure no one has one already!!

Obama’s Illegitimate Child Comes out of Hiding

Just cracked me up and had to share. I guess Obama gets around since this guy works at an "On The Run" in Panama City, Panama. The resemblance is uncanny. ;)

Bad Mood

I hate being in a mad mood. I think it sucks, but for some reason I cannot help it. The things that got me in a bad mood today were –

It is freezing outside and to top it off it started snowing! I hate cold weather. I think that anything below 70 degrees is, well, just not cool. I hate going out when it is cold outside. If it was up to me I would hibernate and wake up in the spring. I however have been a little more open to doing things in these dreaded months, but people can see that I am just not myself.

Second thing that got me in a bad mood is - my dresses. I am going to a formal on Friday. I had the most amazing dress lined up for the event, an amazing, did I say amazing already? BCGI MaxAzria, number. I got it on sale a while back hoping to use it on a special occasion, well, the thing is that the dress looks amazing, there is that word again, from the front, but there is a bulge on the back. My hips are just too wide! Yes, I can lose some weight, but how can I lose 2 inches by Friday? I went back to the closet and I am not happy with anything. Anyway, I go to the store this morning to purchase a dress I saw online and the store tells me that they ship ALL those dresses to another store. It is cold and I don’t want to drive anywhere else. I guess I am wearing a Kay Unger dress on Friday, ugh!

Since I was already in a bad mood and had to start getting ready for tonight’s event everything I decided to wear just seemed wrong, so I decided to just stay home. Bah, humbug!

Third thing – I hate not finding things. Instead of accepting that my house is a giant black hole and everything put down will never be seen again, I try to look for things and get enraged when I cannot find something. When will I learn?

On the way to my mom’s house to drop Baby Girl off (the kids are spending the night over there since I was supposed to be at an event tonight) the snow started to come down fast. BG got super excited; she kept talking about how this day was going to be her number one memory and how awesome it was that it was snowing in Houston. She kept pointing at the sky and looking at it like it was the first time she has ever been outside. I reached over and touched her cheek in hopes that some her passion would somehow infect me. On the drive home I really looked outside, seeing all that snow come down was really a sight. On the driveway I stood still for a couple of minutes letting the snowflakes land on my face. It really felt good to just stand there and enjoy the moment - something I should really do a lot more of instead of getting in a bad mood for things that really don’t matter.

Merry Christmas to ME!!

My holidays are getting a little brighter. I just me the Dior Cannage Medium bag. I know, I know, it is really for next Spring/Summer, but I got it on sale with free shipping and no tax from eluxury, so I could not resist. This bag will look fabulous with both pairs of nude tone shoes I bought for next year. Yay me! I am so excited!!

Tiara Happy Hour

This month's Houston Tiaras was held at Coffee Groundz.  The night was extremely chilly, but we just hung around the heaters.  I had a good time overall except for my feet that were killing me.  A small price to pay for wearing amazing boots!
