Seize the day because life is what you make it...

Happy Memorial Day

Thank you SO much for the lovely birthday wishes for Hubby :)

It's been two blissful days full of unexpected and much needed family time!
Humbe hurt his back and has been unable to go to work since Friday - Yikes
But it's like they say each story has it's good and bad side!
Yes he's missed three days of pay day including today, BUT we've had him all to ourselves!!
It has been way to long since the three of us have been together for three complete days- 24/7

It's been great to just lounge around in pj's and watch movies non-stop with my boys!!
Even my parents joined in lounging around on Sunday :)
Ordering in, enjoying laughs,watching movies and just knowing that your surrounded by 
love is what I needed to get my energy and myself back together again!!

I love having a family and being able to relax and just enjoy lounging
around surrounded by those I love most!


The best things in life are free and the simple pleasures are what make life
worth living - especially when you have family to share it with!!





Today we remember all our courageous men and women who have
 fought & given their lives for this country.

To all our men and women serving our country past and present.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

Wishing my dear friends a blessed and safe Memorial Day :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

Movie date and realizing that....

Something Borrowed and Bridesmaids are two movies that I will definitely be getting on DVD!!
It was so nice to be able to escape the real world for a few hours and lose myself
in two incredibly awesome and hilarious movies!!
 My ribs were aching by the end of the day!

We started off with Something Borrowed, I cried and laughed!
And came out with the conclusion that Darcy was never a good friend
for Rachel (an entire post to come later with more details and my
thoughts on Something Borrowed)
It was great to watch the movie and see OUR place and wishing 
we could eat lunch there whenever we wanted to!
It was also glorious to be able to watch hunky Colin Egglesfield on screen as Dex :)


He is one dreamy guy and it was a treat to watch him on the big screen :)
it was also incredibly funny when i realized that I'd already seen hunky Colin not on the big screen
but in real life!!

Colin & Ginnifer while filming Something Borrowed
Yep!! I took that picture during one of my paparazzi stunts - haha!!
It was a beautiful sunny day on Monday June 14th, 2010, when Miguelito 
and me happened to be walking by the Museum Of Natural History (two blocks away from 
my house) when we noticed all the commotion and people taking pictures. 

Now everybody who knows me, knows that I never leave my house without my handy dandy camera :)
I'm a pathological picture taker!!
And this is precisely one of the reasons why I love my city and always carry my camera around besides capturing my oh so precious moments with my family and my Miguelito!!

I snapped away and got a bazillion pictures, went home, put them in a folder and forgot about
them!! Oh! The horror!! How could I forget that I had such treasures
of my hunky lover boy :)

Colin getting his hair and makeup ready for his scene

In this picture Jill Eikenberry & Colin talking with somebody (don't know who he is)

Dex's Parents - Jill Eikenberry & Geoff Pierson
Colin being silly with his costar :) isn't he cute!
Getting their makeup ready for the scene
Colin & Ginnifer
Look at those dimples - isn't he charming :)
Ha! So you see my dear beautiful sister I actually had dibs on Colin first, but I will make an exemption
for the reason that I have dibs on this incredible adorable guy who stole my heart today!!

Chris O'Dowd as Rhodes in Bridesmaids!!
Rhodes had my heart the moment he said hello!
He is one adorable, charming and breathtaking Irish hunky :)
 His accent and adorableness had me hanging at every word he said!


 I ABSOLUTELY Loved - Bridesmaids!!
It was way too hilarious!
 It was the perfect movie to take away my blues and worries if only for a few hours! 
There were moments where you could only here my laughter echo in the movie theater - haha!!
It is a fun movie full of friendship, love and life realizations :)

These are two movies that are a definite must watch!!

So dear friends, I am happy to say that it was a day full of sisterly love, happiness,
forgetfulness, some crying (I am a bay cry) and laughter!
Just what the doctor ordered :)
I hope you all had a perfect Thursday and have an even better Friday & Weekend!!

I'm super excited because I get to see dear Johnny boy tomorrow on the big screen :)
and because I have a jam packed weekend full of soccer, street fairs, and planning for my mom's
 and dad's welcome back party!! 
Yesssssssssssss! 
My mamma & pappa finally come back on Monday!!
I get to hug them, and cry while they tell me everything is going to be okay!!
I love them with all my heart and can't wait to see their beautiful faces and tell them how much
 I've missed them and love them - eeeeeeee they are my world!!!!
It will be a great weekend indeed :)

Happy Friday my dear friends :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

Wednesday Ramble :)

Once again, thank you SO much my dear lovies for all of your support and beautiful comments!!
I have been praying non-stop and am really trying my best to not over think things.

It has been raining non-stop in the city and it has affected the public transportation badly :( not only that but the horrible weather change has finally caught up to me and I am now stuck with a horrible cold and cough which I am hoping will go away soon!

But  just when things seem to be crumbling all around me a ray of sunshine shines through the clouds
right to me :)
Today was a day full of beautiful surprises :) - I will come back tomorrow with pictures!!
And I am SO excited for my movie date with my sister Jessy tomorrow :)
We will be watching "Something Borrowed" followed by "Bridesmaids" - Yay!!
I'm SO excited, especially because I get to see Marz & My place in Something Borrowed. 
I will be so nostalgic during the entire movie missing my beautiful sisters :)

I am also very excited to catch a late show of "Pirates Of The Carribean - On Stranger Tides"
Friday night!! Some late night Johnny - Yes Please :)


In the meantime I am very intrigued and somewhat disturbed at the same time by this following movie: 


It has intrigued me enough to go see it at the movie theater :)
What do you think? Is it something you would go watch?

Love,
Kary xoxo

Johnny Depp might have Royal Blood?

Johnny Depp & Queen Elizabeth could be cousins!!


A Genealogist named Nick Barrett says that Johnny boy shares the same
distant blood line as the royal family.
Johnny has the same great (19 greats) grandfather as Queen Elizabeth.
 Making them 20th cousins :)

"I believe the balance of probability is that there is indeed a link between Depp and the royals," Barrett explains. 

Hmmmmm... I might have to check myself out, who knows I might end up being
  Queen Elizabeth's 30th Cousin - haha!
I've always felt something royally about me, especially the way I raise my pinkie when I
drink from my mug :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

Weekend Blues :(

Ugh!! Yes I have the weekend blues.
I feel sad, a little depressed and can't stop over thinking things!!

I miss my mamma & pappa!! 
My dear Humbe works so many hours and I am so used
to being with my mamma and just chatting the night away :(




And to top things off, yesterday I finally got to
recuperate some old pictures from an old computer and now I can't stop crying!!
I'm reminiscing looking at all the pictures :(

My head is blank and therefore I haven't been able to blog because I just feel
bleh!!


I can't stop playing this song :(

Hope you all are having a much better weekend than I am :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

Wishfulness Shop :)

You have got to love Etsy and all of the pretty shops you find!!
Like Chelsea's beautiful shop called "Wishfulness Shop", and it's doing precisely that
making me wishI I weren't on a budget right now - Grrrrrr!!
It is full of SO many beautiful goodies :)

My favorites:

Size 7 - If only I were a size smaller!! :(
These shoes are gorgeous!


This ring is just beautiful!!

If you think these items are great, just wait until May 15th when she will be updating her 
shop. 
I know I can't wait :)

Love,

Missing my girls & Weekend recap :)

It seems like only yesterday I posted this post here and I was counting down the days until I got to see
my two darling friends, now I'm counting down the days since we've seen each other!!

Micaela, Miguelito & Marz in Times Square :)

My Marz, Miguelito & Me - Central park :)

Micaela, Miguelito & Me in Astoria Queens :)

These three were inseparable - at the financial district :)

These little piggies got some air!! I was about to send these girl home without their feet, they were so worn out!

Miguelito & Marz asleep on the train - we walked a lot!!!

Family Pic - Top Of The Rock! Ahhhh!! We're falling :)

Last week Tuesday my stomach was in knots as Marz, Micaela, Migueltio and me walked down the 
streets of NYC because I knew it was our last day to hang out and be together for a very long time.
 I knew that I would be saying goodbye to them later that night!! Which by the way was SO hard, I really believed I would be stronger and thought I was going to be able to hold my tears until I was back in the car,
but I couldn't and as we said goodbye in the hotel lobby I felt the big lump on my throat start to rise
and my tears started to spill! Saying goodbye to my family was one of the
hardest things I've ever had to do. After being inseparable for 4days and being able to be myself so freely, 
share so many inside jokes :), and just have the time of our live's I was feeling the sadness of it all 
coming to an end :(

I am so grateful to have been able to spend as much time as I did with my beautiful girls, even though I miss
them like crazy I know this was just the beginning of something SO special and unique!!
When you have true friends that are indescribable making them one of a kind  you know you've been blessed.

I really do look forward to our skype dates even though we won't be able to hug each other when ever or say see you tomorrow! 

I LOVE YOU BOTH SOOOOOOOO MUCH & MISS YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!

Where does the time go? It has been going by way to fast!!
We are counting down the days left till summer vacation, Miguelitos next belt  test in just three weeks, and
a maybe trip to Ecuador this summer :)
In the meantime I was blessed with  a great weekend, beautiful weather,
and spending lots of time with my Miguelito :)

:
Miguelito loves Wolverine! Sunday Brunch & Complimentary apple pie for Mother's Day - Yes Please  :)

Grrrrrrr!!!

Loving the Sally Hansen:Nail Effects! I've received so many compliments and  I've had them on for 6 days and still perfect!! Will do a tutorial and review very soon, but I'm still in need of some Crackle nail polish :(

Loving my $4.00 gold glitter flats!! Yes $4.00 - they were also the last pair - score  :)

Now I'm off to cook some vegetable lasagna and spend a fun loving afternoon with my boys
Miguelito, Humbe & Manhattan :)
Happy Tuesday Loves :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

"A best friend is a sister destiny forgot to give you"

When I started blogging I never thought of  how amazing it would really be, not only would I meet the
 greatest of friends but I would also be reunited with family :)
I gained two sisters and an entire clan of Lechugas :) How lucky am I?
This past Saturday I finally got to hug my two beautiful sisters, from the moment we hugged at
 the airport it was just like old family reuniting again.

My darling girls Micaela & Marz are both SO beautiful inside and outside, they are both the sweetest girls you will ever meet.
 They are silly, sincere, humble, honest, sweet, lovable, they love to eat (best part ever was eating so much, and making jokes about how fat we would all be if we lived together in New York - haha, seriously we
ate A LOT!!), they are the best girls you will ever meet!!
We got to spend the best 4 days ever!!!
They were full of adventures, laughter, love, cupcakes, non-stop walking, and some crying!

Left to Right:
Marz, Frank, Maria, Micaela, Miguelito & Me :) in Times. Square
We had the best time of our lives :) My darling Marz sang me a piece of our favorite song the night we bid goodbye :(
It was SO hard to say goodbye at the hotel, I choked and my tears stopped me from talking, but
my darling friends know how much I love them and how much they mean to me and Miguelito!
Our house is always open and we can not wait until you come to NYC again, what I am missing most even though it has only been a day since I saw my darlings is their sweet and sincere HUGS!!

I LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH MICAELA & MARZ!!!!!


Someday soon - It's not Goodbye, but see you later :)

P.S. My darling Marz has already arrived safely to DFW and has already reunited with her love Phillip, our darling Micaela is a few minutes away from reuniting with her love Chip :)

Love,
Kary xoxo

I promise to post more pics, I just don;t want to spoil my sisters fun :) But soon I promise!!








please say a prayer of safe travels for my darling sisters Micaela & Marz, they are flying back to Texas today (especially since Micaela hates to fly). xoxo

Ahhhh!!! It has been an awesome two days :)
We finally got to hug Marz & Micaela, and we have been having the time of our lives!!

Marz, Me, & Micaela

Micaela, Miguelito, & Marz
We still have two more days full of awesomeness left and I am dreading the moment I will bid goodbye
to my darling girls. I'm sure a few tears will pop out, but in the meantime I am soaking up every 
single moment with my darling girls!!
My Family - Reunited and it feels so good :)

Cant wait to be back with many more pictures and stories!!
Wishing you all a great week and Monday :)

P.S. My Pappa and Mamma will be traveling to Mexico tomorrow morning, will you please have them in your prayers so that they may have a safe trip and everything is ok. Thank you so much loves :)

Love,
Kary xoxo
