Just finished celebrating Hunter's 16th Birthday WOW can you believe my little peanut turned 16. Not to mention my 20th wedding anniversary is September 29th...
How time flies...  Are first date was the movies ,  "Cocktail" with Tom Cruise 1988 I still remember that scent of Carlos "my husbands' shirt. It wasn't cologne it was a natural clean smell.... And here we are 20 years later very much in Love.. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY too us....

I'm trying to get in the spirit of Halloween which by the way is really hard to do in this 105 degree weather " yuk..I'm ready to pull out all my decorations and decorate the house. I'm working on some Halloween projects with skulls I bought last year on clearance trying to make use of what I already have, I had an old candle stick holder that I used for the stand...  I'll post pictures when I'm done.. Here are some pictures of my jewelry that I just finished and I'm very excited about...I hope everyone else is too.

JALOS 2010 Fiestas de Augusto

We are back from I must say a very very eventful trip, First I must say theres no place like home.....
{MAY GOD BLESS THE USA} A Big Thank you, to all that serve our Country.....
It was a great trip, We started in Guadalajara Mexico, met up with the Primos from Northern Cal.
We saw Beautiful Churches/Cathedrals, Museums, Buildings, Art, People and of course good food especially at CHATA'S restaurant if you ever visit you must eat there,Great food and service.
There is so much history in Guad. we stayed in the historical central surrounded by old beautiful architectural buildings, The Ballet Flokorico is a must see, The cultural Institute Cabanas Museum is a master piece with its arches, Large Pillars Tuscany style large halls, long corridors and of course the display of outstanding Mexican Art by Jose Clemente Orozco. The cabana was once used as a orphanage ran by sisters of charity.      
After a week in Guad we left to Jalos to celebrate NinaGueda's 80th Birthday, what a beautiful spirit well deserved Celebration. During the time we were there Fiestas de Augusto was going on its when the Virgen de Ausicion appeared to the Pueblo, from August 5th through the 15th its full of festivities, From the early morning the Church bells ring and Las Mananitas start ,the people carry her through the Pueblo to the church, at night they start with a display of fire works in front of the church and people gather to celebrate, after the fire works we headed over to the plazita to watch the Boys and Girls do what they call vueltas/circles the boys line up in two lines and the girls go through the line around the plaza if the boy likes you he gives you a rose or throws confetti its a tradition it's a way of meeting , of course our boys had to ask the girl if she speaks English first ,Hunter has promised he's going to be more focused on learning Spanish! 
The people in Jalos really know how to relax, take it easy it's very slow there...the shops close everyday at 2pm and re-open at 5pm {maybe} that's if they feel like it sometimes later, no stress no traffic/freeways no hurry or worries... Its really a place to live if you want no stress in your life!

Ready For Jalos

Well the count down is 3 days , All ready and eager to go, we can't wait!!! I am trying really hard to pack light and what I mean my packing light is one suitcase for me only, "NOT HAPPENING" I tried what can I say.... The problem is my shoes I of course need different shoes for different out fits,"RIGHT" so I'm packing all my shoes in one suitcase, every Beautiful vein Latina in Jalos dresses up, they wear high heels "stiletto's" which is very hard to do, the streets are cobble stone and very uneven almost deadly, which makes it very hard to walk but some how they manage, if you look closely their heels are tore up and I mean tore up.....they walk at an angle slanted its really something to see, of course the woman there are all skinny and beautiful, they walk every where, Jalos is very very "hilly" steep hills everywhere, if I lived there I'd be skinny in no time......hmmmm that's an Idea?
