The Super Long week is over =(

It's past midnight and our Thanksgiving week of Yummy food, and rest is sadly over. I hope everyone enjoyed their time off from that annoying thing we call work ( which don't get me wrong, I know we are all grateful for having).

But back to normality at least for a week or so.. and then we get ready for December and another week long family fest.

I start December off with a Bang!! my BF Birthday is this coming weekend so I hope to spend some quality time with him.

This past week was awesome had Thanksgiving 3 times, Yes that's right Tuesday we had one with my Family specially set up for my nephews, Thursday I went over BF's for Dinner and Today we had our home made Turkey specially for my nephew D. Who loves grandmas food.. when he saw they turkey cooking in the oven almost done he said "MMmm this is going to be delicious" as eloquently as an 8 years old with his Lisp caused by the onset of the front teeth being taken away by the tooth fairy.

By the way we were blessed with today's turkey by divine intervention, let me explain, we usually make a turkey with sauce and its yummy , but since we were having our entire floor from our house remodeled, we were not able to use the kitchen, so we had to buy the  Koo Koo Roo Family Feast, which was good, but was not our usual Thanksgiving Dinner. So I missed our traditional bird, so of we went last night in search of a Turkey to cook , but came short on finding one. We all went to the market and as sick as we were with the cold, we still wanted to buy a turkey. But there were none left.
So we came home, only to find a turkey sitting in our sink . Yeah JC saw how much I wanted one , so he used my aunt and her husband who kindly sent the bird to us via my other aunt.

The best part was when my nephew said.. u were right, just like my bday card said.. all your dreams and wishes come true.. we had wished for a turkey and BAM!  here was one waiting on us to discover it.

I am so grateful for the time off and my family.. even though we all have a cold we were able to relax and enjoy our time off of course not with out first going to 7 am  church service, boy was it cold this morning, but it was well worth the sacrifice. I spent the weekend sick but had some quality time with my little nephew and we discovered the beauty of Netflix. All I can say is .. I loves it.
 I just finished seeing Julia & Julie and I loved the movieJulie & Julia defntly a must see.

I am a huge Julia Child's Fan used to see her on TV when I was a child, I tell you between her and Martha Stewart, and Jacques Pepin I was in the fast lane to be a wonderful Domestic Goddess... but I am still not there yet.

*Ps.. the picture on the top of my blog was a Bday cake I baked for my BF a couple of years ago.. =)

**Psss.. Also I must confess I saw all of the following movies courtesy of Netflix
1. Free Willy 4Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove
2.Confessions of a Shopaholic ( I have a story on this one)Confessions of a Shopaholic

3. The LabyrinthLabyrinth (Anniversary Edition)

4.The Land before TimeThe Land Before Time (Anniversary Edition)
5. Monsters Inc. Monsters, Inc. (Two-Disc Collector's Edition)

6. G Force G-Force (Single Disc Widescreen)

Well time for bed.. xoxox may you all have a wonderful week blessed and in the presence of the Lord

Happy Thanksgiving!!

The Holidays are just around the corner!! I am one of those who just simply loves the Holidays. And its not because of the gifts and Retail therapy. I actually Love the Holidays.. because it reminds me of a better time in my life.  My younger years a time when I believe in Santa Claus and my schools made me put the funniest Holiday Programs ever and we all get dresses in funny little costumes ( Exh. 1 My nephew in his 1st ever Christmas Program). He loved it and so did I.

Anyways Thanksgiving is here, YEAH!! and we are celebrating our Thanksgiving tomorrow. My Nephews will not be able to be with us on Thursday, so we will be having Thanksgiving tomorrow evening.

To us that day is special and we love sitting down for dinner, we have so much to be grateful. I specially love Thanksgiving because that's the one day of the year where everyone stops and makes time to have dinner with the family. Something that we should do every day , but for one reason or another its not possible. Anyways my family will be enjoying our thanksgiving tomorrow and my nephews are excited. We can't wait.. they have their out fits already picked out. Their mom will drop them off tonight or tomorrow and they will spend the night  and on Thursday my brother will drop them off and they will be having thanksgiving with their other side of the family.

So I want to Wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving May it be filled with Love and joy and specially the presence of the Lord. May it be blessed and may your loved ones enjoy each others company. May traditions be started and memories made, but above all may we teach the little ones that even if the sky is gray, there is always something we can be grateful for.

I thank God for my family, my shibi, my job, my health, my friends, my life and for just giving me the opportunity to be here to share with my family one more day of life. I pray for every one and I hope that the Lord blesses them with a wonderful day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you , Blessings and xoxoxoox

Michael Jackson - Hold My Hand (Duet with Akon)

Just found a  new Song by MJ and Akon .. and All I can say is I LOVE IT.

It reminds me of my Nephew.. he has been really close to me and when ever he felt in danger or needs to feel safe and secure he Tells me" Tia .. Hold My Hand!"

That is his way to ask for help.. I tried to tell him that when he is scared to tell himself that he is going to be ok.. But I finally understood that sometimes we already know we are going to be OK and all we need is for someone to stand next to us to re affirm it.

That's what D was doing all along, when he felt frighten and his heart started pounding and he felt like crying and running away he would always grab my hand wrap it around his and say "HOLD MY HAND" his way of saying "I am facing my fear.. I just need you to stand with me to help me over come it".

Once I understood I told him, whenever u feel in danger and frighten.. remember.. I will always be right next to you.. holding your hand.. and U, Me and Jesus.. we can conquer everything.

This song has the same sentiment, we all need someone who will Hold our Hand and help us overcome what ever difficulties come our way. I am so glad I am his Hold My Hand person =).

Love it....

I am =D... just found the cutest name necklace ever.. and so affordable. So I am a SEX and the City fan and I Adore Carrie. On the show she had  a name necklace that I so wanted.. but was not something that I could Justify in my budget. Until I found this cool web site and guess what.. I found a sale and an Online coupon coupon code: TWIT15  so for under $35 I am going to get my necklace.. LOL.. I know the things that bring joy to my heart.. so sad!! 
But just in case you are interested you can take a look and see if you find something you might like.

PS.. I found the coupon on line and it worked.. yeah !!! it took 15% off  and they have FREE shipping.

Can't wait to get it.. mine will have my nickname.. Seaprincess.. of course!!

Decision Points...

Greetings.. Hope u all had a wonderful weekend and I want to Say Thank You to all of you for following my blog.

I am feeling a bit under the weather.. I seem to have gotten a cold..=(.. I hate colds and they knock me out.

This weekend even as sick and weak as I was feeling .. I had promised my nephews to take them to the Movies. So on Saturday morning I had to roll out of bed and head over to LA LIVE .

 Actually  we needed to go to REGAL Theater.. at LA Live.. but my nephew always says.. Lets go to LA Live. We went and made it to the 1:30 pm showing of Megamind, and of course no kid wants to see movies in 2D any more. Its all about 3D.. but that makes me DIZZY =( but the nephews were eagered to get their hands on the 3D glasses.. that they asked for 3D please.. ughh!! not only was I going to be dizzy.. I was also going to have to pay a pretty penny.. because 3D is not cheap.. but promises r promises.

I am also excited because I am taking a little step to improving my work.. and I hope that this will help me get to my goal .. which I believe I decided what I am going to do with my life.. I just need to find my steeping stones to get me to my desired goal .

On a random note  I came upon this cute bottle Stopper.. last year for my b day my coworkers decorated  one of our conference rooms all in pink and we had the most adorable pink Napkins just like the picture above of the Girl in Pink.. with the most awesomness quote " I was never meant to Work"  LOL.. the Irony.

Perfect! Someday!!

8 years ago I was blessed to meet a special person, we have gone Through ups and downs, good times and bad ones.

But this month marks our 8 year Anniversary, we have known each other and have been in each others life for 8 years.

At the beginning  we were strangers and I was weary of him and I was very cautious.

But he came along...with his baby blue button down shirt and his little black glasses, sketch book always in hand and a Sony Ericson cell phone one the other. He walked into my life offering LOVE but I was too Blind to see. He brought Care into my life, but I was too selfish to appreciate he wore his heart on his sleeve and I was so mean that I stepped on it.

But even though I was so blind and mean, he also brought patience, into my life, and he waited... he waited and waited and waited  until I had vomited all the negative things that were in my heart and finally the day came when I finally had room for something new.

In came the smiles, the deep glances, the nervousness, the sweets letters, the cute notes.  The surprise brown bags filled with Yogurt, Granola Bars, Bananas and Orange Juice and a the most adorable notes that said
"Here Liz take a break.. you haven't had breakfast" =)

In came the many nights filled with conversation, and long walk in the moon light, In came lunches and dinners at fast food restaurants that felt cosmic and exotic. In came the days of getting to know you minutes felt like hours and hours like days... but the days felt like seconds. In came the yearning of wanting more to hear more to see more to touch more, to learn more.

In came the sweet touches and the sweet kisses.. In came LOVE.. slowly it crept on me.. with out me Noticing, I was filled and consumed by it. I was now a Prisoner of Love and I was not ready for it.  I was afraid ... Doubt came in.. problems arouse.. distance, pain, lonely days came and those days were the worst days of my life. I was now in pain, trying to protect myself from Loves pain I had inflicted upon my person... a worst type of Pain! The Pain of A heart Longing for Love,  a Heart longing for that person who sets it on fire.

Through family problems,through Financial Problems  to Personal Issues...  and Forgiveness we have come a long way. And through the years I learned one thing LOVE is LOVE and there is no explanation you either accept it or let it go. I tried to let it go but I finally realized that together we are strong and with out each other I fall apart. I can honestly say that If you love something Let it go... if its yours it will come back. If it doesn't it was never yours to begin with.

I learned that if we stand together we are strong and that instead of trying to break our selves up we needed to Love one another for who we are and accept ourselves and acknowledge that 8 years have passed and we are still with each other, then this must mean something!!

I love You my Shibi you make me feel secure and Happy =D!!

I promise to take your heart and mend it back together with my love, I promise to return the patience you once brought into my life and I promise to Care for you, like you have done for me over the last 8 years. I promise to be there for you, but above all I promise to LOVE you just the way you are.

Love Liz * sea =)
