reality.

Do you ever have those moments, where you sit and wonder, how the fuck did I get here?

I've got multiple tabs and windows open, searching Pinterest for cheap, healthy dinners. Checking different grocery stores, the weekly ads. Trying to decide if I want to start watching Girls again. ( I ditched it 2 episodes into the 3rd season.)

There's a stack of laundry at the end of my bed and a pile of junk mail on the floor next to me. My nightstand has 2 waters bottles, a half opened container of apple sauce, hand books from work and numerous other bills piled on it. 

I think I might have a panic attack.

I was listening to John Mayer the other night. (don't judge me.) I remember listening to his album in high school. Laying on my bed imagining what my life would be like when I was an adult. I imagined myself living in New York, in a brick walled apartment with lots of windows, that I always kept open, so I could hear the city. Obviously, that never happened.

I have a good life. Healthy, happy kids, a roof over my head, plenty of junk food and a man who talks in his sleep about work, to share my life with.

I've been feeling so sad and unfulfilled lately. Almost like I'm suffocating. I feel at times, like I'm wasting my life. Is this all I'm going to do? Plan meals and wash clothes? Read blogs and watch shows of places I've never been and probably will never go?

I'm meant for so much more.

What's up Wednesday.



Today I'm linking up with Shay for What's up Wednesday!


What I'm eating this week.

That's a loaded question. I'm trying to be healthy and come up with new food options. Sadly, I'm one of those people that cannot eat the same thing every day. All last week I was craving avocado on toast. I made it on Monday and could barely get it down. I'm a texture person and just can't get on board with avocados.

I've had scrambled eggs every day and they keep me full.

What I'm reminiscing about.

Freezing my ass off at Friday night Giants games. There's really nothing better.



What I'm loving.

This works wonders on my dry skin!



What we've been up to.

School, work and lots of silly faces.




What I'm dreading.

Thankfully, nothing!

What I'm working on.

Getting enrolled in school! It's about time!

What I'm excited about.

Spring break and warmer weather! I was hoping for at least 1 snow day this year, doesn't look like it's going to happen.

What I'm watching/reading.

I know. I know. I'm late to the party.


What I'm listening to.

Lots of randoms on Soundcloud.

What I'm wearing.

Shoes from Walmart. Leggings from Target.


Shirt and Jeans from Forever 21.


What I'm doing this weekend. 

Working and date night!


What I'm looking forward to next month.

My moms birthday and Easter!

What else is new.

B was voted on the  exam committee board at his union for HVAC! And in 2 weeks he'll be teaching at the union hall as well! I'm so proud of him!


Favorite Easter Tradition.

Having everyone over for lunch. We used to go to church when I was little and there was a special children's service with music.


Happy Wednesday! I'm off to make tomato soup!

I'm back!

Happy February! Sorry for the long break! Let's catch up, shall we.


The boys were champs and stayed up with me until midnight. B slept through it no matter how many times I poked him. I realized at 11:45 that Pitbull had his own countdown! The boys loved it! Great way to start of the New Year!







This little nugget came down with step at the beginning of January. B had his tonsils taken out when he was a kid. I have a feeling, Ryan will have them removed as well. 



Back to back awards for big brother! He got a character referral then a Rotary Club award for perseverance! Could not be more proud of him and his love of learning!


This guy gave us a scare mid month. He's been staying with my mother in law, keeping her dog company. (Her dog is older and not in the best of health.) One morning, Cole wouldn't get up. She tried hot dogs and bacon and he wouldn't budge. After a very tearful vets stay, full of antibiotics and steroids, he's on the mend! We're still not sure what was wrong, but are so damn happy that he's healthy and home! 



King of the castle.




I turned 30!!! at the end of the month and have clearly matured. I took the weekend off and spent it with family and friends and had the best time. I wish I had some great life advice or wisdom to pass on. I don't. Only to say, chill out, slow down and keep it movin.

       


I'm still figuring out snapchat. My username is Queenangelina if you want to follow along :)






For Valentines day, we celebrated a day early and took the boys to MONSTER JAM! We had a great time! It was a long day but so much fun!

That's all I've got for now. I'm working on some home projects that I'll be sharing soon! Thanks for sticking with me! See you later this week!

Friday faves!


Happy Friday! Why was this week so damn long?! I'm linking up with Andrea again to share some favorites.



Jackie went back to school on Monday and got a character referral for being such a good listener!


Ryan continued to be a bed hog all week and came down with strep on Wednesday. 


We hung out yesterday and he ran errands with me today. Funny how the nail salon isn't as relaxing when you have a 5 year old with you.


Last Saturday I met up with my girlfriend for drinks after work. We stayed out too late but had a great time.


I made this cake for Christmas morning and am dreaming about it. So rich, so delicious. 


Word on the street is were getting snow on Monday!! Hopefully it sticks and we can build a snowman!

I hope ya'll have a great weekend and I'll talk to you soon!

Holla! Happy Tuesday friends! I hope everyones week is going smooth. I'm blessed that Jack and Ryan were DYING to get back to school, no tears or fights at drop off is always good.

Today I'm linking up with a local mama, Andrea to introduce myself to you :)

I was born on January 31,1986. I was the first child, the first niece, god daughter and grand child. So automatically that makes me the favorite. 



In October of 1987 my best friend and brother was born.


He finally moved to Texas this summer and I'm so happy were all together again!

We grew up in South San Francisco. Growing up in the Bay Area was so amazing. It was a busy big city, with the beach, mountains and country side no more than 30 minutes away. 

On August 26,2007 I became a Mama to this precious Angel.


Jackie has taught me so much and changed my life in the best possible way.

On December 1, Ryan was born.


This little guy turned my whole world upside down in the best possible way. 

On September 22, B and I got married.


It hasn't always been easy, but it's been worth it. Theres no one I'd rather annoy, love or ride shotgun with, than this guy.

In July 2013, we took a leap and moved to Texas. This was probably the hardest thing I've ever done. The job market and housing crisis, just got to be too much and so we left. In September 2013, we closed on our first home.


I love out little house. Im hoping to finish up a few projects I've started this year. Finish painting and get more pictures put up. 

Some fun facts about me:
I love anything haunted or creepy.
A cheese plate would be my last meal.
I have a serious case of wanderlust, but I HATE leaving my comfort zone.
I love meeting new people but am extremely shy.
I'm Italian, Irish and Mexican. 
I'm currently on a Gossip Girl binge. Yes, I know I'm late to the party.
My dream job is to be a Bond girl. Sadly my butt is too big.


I wrote more about my resolutions for the new year here. Please leave a comment if there's anything more you'd like to know about me. I hope you have an amazing Tuesday and I'll see you later in the week
