Beer Garden

beer gardenI haven’t seen Chris (I call him Mary..inside joke) in the longest time, probably once like 2 and a half years ago, and then like 5 years ago… damn. Time sure does get the best of us. Since he was gonna be in NYC he invited me down to his cousin’s BBQ which was starting at 3pm. (cough cough cough, according to him) So when I saw it hit like 6pm, I felt like a bad friend. See, I was so busy editing (for a shoot you’ll see soon) and time got the best of me. Luckily for me, he wasn’t even there yet.  I made my way towards Queens, which I almost never go to. When I arrived, he told me he just got there… That bastard!

hahaha.. I was feeling less guilty in no time.

His cousin was the birthday boy, and while I was being introduced to new faces, I managed to recognize some old ones. Chris’s sister Vanessa  (who I went to High School with) and Frankie (another cousin who I’ve met like 6 years ago)

Vanessa is such a sweetheart and catching up Frankie was definitely a good surprise.

Everyone was playing beer pong, which I have never played, and failed to mention, because I knew as soon as I said something, the ball would be in my court.. no thank you!

Maybe another time, when I learn all the rules, and can we make it “wine” cup instead!?

IMG_1557beer garden 2Since it was still early, everyone was headed to Beer Garden. I’ve never been, and it was actually bigger than I thought it was. The weather was nice, so out to back deck we went. I actually got to meet some pretty cool people and catch up with old friends. So there you go, great  night!beer garden 3beer garden 41cb375036ff5b6d0a8b411e038b0949d

Current Catch Up

f41edfae76d734dca663c0af06d9eb44Time gets the best of us, and sadly, like all grown ups we have 20 things to get done. 50 different lists that keep scrolling and 1, ooo different ideas that you have to figure out to make happen.

Rent is a pocket killer, social sites take up your sanity most of the time and who has time for anything else…. oh yes, the romantic life.

We manage, my 9-5 and his random schedules kill us in the day time, but those late night sessions make it all worth while.

On another note,  lately, all I seem to do is wear olive colors, greys and browns. Maybe because I don’t have to worry about matching in the mornings. Lazy me, and let’s face it, I have no one to impress at work but the desktop computer that blinds me all day.

MockingjayOmg, Omg, Omg…. I know I am suuuuper late. But I never really saw the hype about Hunger games, until bored one night and Netflix saved me. I fell in love, not only because the female lead was a kick ass protagonist, but the story line had me hooked and sinked.

The next night Q, took me to see the second movie: Catching Fire. Ugh. What was that for? I was all up into it, and then all of a sudden bam! It was over.  But who’s going to wait a year or so for the next film?

I decided to read the book, (even though I haven’t read the first 2; shame on me).  I haven’t made a huge dent yet, but so far I’m all in!

Not to mention the only Jennifer Lawrence addiction. She’s so beautiful, and the more I learn about her online, the more loveable she gets. She’s so funny, and is constantly eating. I secretly want to be friends with her, have a sleepover, eat a lot of ice cream and get drunk making cookies. untitled

url-13Yes, apparently I’m late for everything and yes, Netflix is a bad influence on me. One of Q’s sisters has been ranting about the show and I always turn into a little kid and cover my ears….ear muffs!

I officially started watching the show 2 weeks ago, two weeks, that’s it. I’m already up to season 3.

It’s my only guilty pleasure, I feel like an addict.

Plus, all the beautiful white coats Kerry Washington wears, sooo pretty. I wish I owned all of them, though  I could never keep those clean in real life.

Facebook is still around but nothing compares to the ease of just uploading a quick pic and being nosy on every one elses stuff… hey, at least I’m honest. Plus unlike Facebook, there’s less statuses about stupid stuff.

Do you instagram? Send me your name so we can be friends!

Beautiful-Christmas-Fireplace-Docorating-Ideas-02-cottageNow that the Holiday season is among us, all I can seem to do is shop, shop shop.  My budget is ridiculously, well…my budget.

On another note, I don’t have many friends as much as I used to. Seems like the older get, the smaller my circle gets. Which I don’t mind of course, they are obviously there for a reason. I’m luck to have them, and they know who they are.

I have to admit, It’s been a couple of years since I’ve actually had a real Christmas. What may that be, you ask? I know the 24th of December comes around every year (I’m Hispanic, we celebrate the eve) But since I’m not really close to my family, Christmas’s have never been the same from when I was a kid.

Pretty lonely actually. So now that I’m a little older and can control certain situations, I have to take it upon myself and start my own traditions. Which probably explains why I’ve been working non stop to make my tiny apartment pretty and up to the season. I’ll be showing you guys pics soon, no worries.

237bff611f1a269a45816577ebad44c5I had more hours to get it all done. Or let’s be honest, to sleep.  I need more it. Every time I  go to work, I catch myself almost missing my stop on the train because I’ve fallen asleep. It doesn’t really help that I’m up at 1am typing this up either.

5d0825989028abe114d38e153dd3a6deMinx’s Mail. I just finished up December’s batch, and I hope everyone likes them. Incase you’re a little lost, I send tiny packages to random fans, thanking them for their loyal support. I appreciate you guys and gals, I really do.

Also, I’m working on making this site more personalized, I want it to represent me completely. My portfolio needs a lot of work, and I just want it to be absolutely perfect. Slowly and in due time, it’ll get done. Plus, I teach myself everything I know, so I constantly surprise myself. Win, win.

Plus, my step brother’s girlfriend is expecting, a boy (my first nephew) and my friend Judy is expecting as well (she finds out the sex of the baby at the end of this week)

So many babies, I’m so excited! I can’t help but melt whenever I see some cute chunky cheeks, fat chunky thighs and those teeny tiny toes…ah!

Okay, okay.. I’ll stop.

Q and I have had the baby talk as well, but first we need to make some moves. Priority is everything, But who knows, you can’t plan everything in life.

Well, my loves… It’s been real. I’m so glad we got to catch up and I hope you guys like this. I’m gonna start trying to get a little more personal on here. After all, it is my blog… I definitely don’t mind sharing it with you all.

🙂

But let me go, it’s officially past my bed time and I have to be an adult in the morning and pay some tax dollars (off to work). Plus, I know a gentleman who’s texting me to hurry up and give him some attention.

Goodnight,
