How sad is it, that you have some different great locations in your hometown and you never get to experience them? So many people travel to NYC to see all the sights, buildings, monuments etc. and knowing that we have all of this beauty in our backyard and just letting it go to waste.
Oli and I met up, for our first time visit to The Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Everything was absolutely stunning. We walked in on a sunny day , bright and gorgeous. The colors were so vivid. We kept stopping at almost every flower. When we arrived at the wishing well, I already had an idea of what I wanted.
Hanging out with Oli is always the best. We catch up on all of our boy troubles and cutesy moments. We discuss work and what’s our next moves in life.
We stopped by the gift shop where I fell with the cutest succulent (love those!) I regret not buying it. After all the walking and getting caught in the rain, it was time for what I do best…wine.
We ordered some rosé and split some sweet potatoes fries…yum!

While exiting the train, I was just stuck in awe by the sunset. Since I was on the higher grounds, the tracks was such a nice touch. It felt like the sky and the city met and fell in love. I had to grab my camera and just take in that breath taking moment.
I just loved this one in black and white…it’s so dark and gloomy, it reminds me of Gotham City.Well, now that I can breathe again… later guys!

Question is, can you blame them?
I was on the train, on my way home from work and the sky with that sunset was jaw dropping. The colors were so vibrant and blended beautifully.
I wasn’t the only who noticed either.
Everyone around me kept stopping to take a picture.
These are two of the ones I snapped.
Plus, I got some good graffiti from Trap in the process, so why not!?

I met up with Jen in Fort Independence with a huge bag of overnight clothes and plans to head to Connecticut.
Plans quickly changed. Destiny, which we all call “Tuti” and is Jen’s niece, was having a performance in her school today.
So we packed up all the kiddies and headed on our way to the MNR. With all the noise and hyper moves everyone quickly scattered giving us places to sit.
That’s Michael, Jen’s brother hooking me up with some chicken wings while we wait for our train to arrive!
Jesse, the youngest brother,Jen and I.
Since we had no napkins to clean up after those chicken wings, to clean up Justen’s hands Jen had the mastermind idea of using pantyliners.lol Oh, man……Poor Justen, he looked humiliated, especially after I snapped a pic!
After finally arriving, a few stops before Poughkeepsie, we were picked up and drove to the school. Though I didn’t get a chance to grab a pic, the school looked beautiful, spacious and almost as if it was fake and able to be used as a backdrop for some cliche highschool movie.
Tuti did great though. She first sang Adele’s Someone like you, then Ceelo Green’s Forget You. of course, it has to be forget you, keeping it classy for the kids.
She then came out, sang and danced a trio in her stunning glittery red dress. Yes, the definitely stole the show!
Here’s a few pics of her special night. ( You guys should already know when you click on any picture it becomes larger )
Everyone was so proud of her! Once the show was over, we all headed out to Giacomo’s for pizza. Where my plate was looking way too good for my own good. I had pizza, a philly cheese steak, philly cheese chicken and some organic fresh mozzarella pizza that was waaaaaay too good!
This family is so inviting, you can clearly see how much love they have for one another. I’ve met many of them on separate occasions, but there’s something about special occasions, I felt so welcomed and grateful for being able to share this moment with them.
Look how cute they are !
Especially with all these little princesses running around who are so fond of their uncles and daddies. Too adorable!
Look at how awesome my plate is, well was..yum! After getting fat we all headed to Mayra, Jen’s sister house and started talking and then a nerf gun fight started!!
I was ready for war.. especially since there was only gun! I would catch the ammo, stuffing my bra with the neon green bullets until I was ready for war!
Once things calmed down we had a little glow in the dark, uv, blacklight fun.
Of course I couldn’t resist leaving my mark with some glow in the dark markers on Jen’s leg =]
Until next time readers !

After getting in trouble at work numerous times for my tardiness, today I woke up early. No idea how, considering the fact that I got home from a long night of partying, drinking and tacos at 7am.
I got dressed, took my time left my house on time and proceeded to the bus stop. In a relaxed mood, I pick up my phone and start blogging. That’s when I get most of my timer to update you guys, from mobile. Then whenever I have free time at home ill post the pictures for you to see.
I’m on the subway platform, in the train. At peace and getting that feeling of ” yes motherfucker, I’m finally gonna get to work on time and prove you shitholes wrong. ”
I spoke to soon. The stupid lady voice in the intercom announces that there is an interrupution and there will be subway delays because of a customer injury in 14th st.
Fuuuuuuuuuuuck! Why couldn’t someone fall into the tracks another day!?
Shitty of me to say of course, not to mention selfish.
I arrived at work 25 minutes late. Just what I needed. Not to mention the stupid imprinted look on my boss’ face. Here we go again, hearing the same old shit.
But it kills me more that I actually got my ass up on time to get here, and still didn’t.
I must have done something to somebody for my karma getting fucked up that way today.
The brightest side of my day so far has me being able to finally take a lunch break with one of my favorite coworkers, Wilfredo.
For a year now, we always took lunch together, and since we’ve had new management. Its been a struggle and bitch ever since. According to them two people can’t go at the same time. And I know for sure that’s complete bullshit. 1) we are in two totally different job categories. Which don’t interfere with the other and 2) everyone else always go to lunch with someone else. It’s fine though, we don’t make a big deal about it.
Wilfredo and I started a week apart from each other. So we basically learned the ropes together and have been inseparable ever since. The other guys always pick on us because they believe we’re dating. That’s definitely not the case. We just get along great.
So we headed to mickey d’s and got fat. And caught up on our bullshitness and he’s preaching to me about being on time, and telling me I need to stop drinking so much. And if I don’t, to at least try to catch up on some sleep because I don’t get any. I just look at him and roll my eyes. And he already knows to change the conversation.
I punch back in and realize he’s punching out to leave. Now I’m stuck here for 4-5 more hours reading my new magazine that I already skimmed through while the dumbass train was stuck in a tunnel.
On a lighter note: I hope the dumb broad that fell in the tracks is still breathing.
