Major Lazer- Be Together

I in no way own this video.

Back to Pizza Zoo

Pizza Zoo, oh, you’ve been fun. For those of you who don’t know what it is, picture a house party, with cool vibes, drinks, pizza and music blasting. It was amazing.

I haven’t seen MaryAnn in quite some time, you know, work and living our lives and all. So when  I saw that this event was happening again, I didn’t want to go with anyone else but her. I’ll admit, I’ve only been to one Pizza Zoo before, last year around April, and it’s no lie when they say, the company you keep makes it all worth while. I’m getting ready, pre-gaming with some wine, before Mary Ann pops up at my house. I’ve been hearing rumors about the rain, and I honestly wasn’t too worried about it. I was only hoping it would rain once I was already over there and not on my way. Dominicans answer their hair, am I right or am I right?  That didn’t stop the Twitter world though, suggestions from “we’ll just have a wet T-shirt contest!” were spiraling and I couldn’t help but laugh.I also noticed a lot of people were trying to find tickets at last minute, since all of the online tickets were sold out. I’m just glad I planned ahead. Hey, I’ve been carrying my printout ticket in my wallet for a week.

I was so excited. When we arrived it was everything I thought it would be and I was ready to dance. I’ve been to The Well, the space where the event was taking place, once before. It was nothing compared to the last. I was sitting at a bar in the quiet playing board games. This time, DJ was mixing it up and the outside area was getting filled up quickly. We ordered some Tiki punches and soaked it all in.I bumped into a lot of familiar faces, which was great. What was even better was all the positive vibes that was going around. Everyone was just trying to have a good time and you can tell by all the dancing, singing, drinking, mosh pits, and every being carrying around that was going on… that was happening.Pizza Zoo was supplying, you guessed it, pizza! Getting a slice was a little difficult though. I found myself next in front of the line around 3 times, and them running out each time. Hahhaa. . .no worries, that’s why you make friends. Kevin, a super cutie laughed at me, because apparently I was being too nice and didn’t want to tackle anyone, so I got a bite out of his. And later ended up getting me a slice as well. Thanks!

Everyone kept trying to get fed, and was pushing each other like crazy. It wasn’t that serious. It’s just a slice guys, we came here to dance anyway!

All I know is I had a great time, and consider me there for the next one!love, m

Ps. Check out the video below, a whole bunch of random clips thrown together. lol

Drink & Draw: On Wednesdays We Drink Wine

I’m going to start this entry with a ” I’m so fucking stupid…”

Moving on, you’ll soon start to realize why.
I haven’t seen Oli, since maybe our date at the pool, hm…lie. She came to my house after that where we caught up with wine. Wine is usually in play with our get together’s.

We were meeting after work, and I was busy scratching my head on what to possibly do.

When it comes to girl dates, I’m usually the one in charge, don’t ask me why. I like being the one to plan things, responsible for the good times, sometimes it’s tricky finding different things to do in the city.
Drink and Draw, it was perfect. According to the website, we were going to be offered wine and materials. According to Yelp, because you always have to check reviews, hahaha, it would be better if you B.Y.O.B. due to the fact that you don’t get much of it at this event.

So when Oli mentioned she came with 2 bottles and not just one, I was ready to jump for joy.
We showed up and the place was tiny, had chairs set up, there’s supplies and wine already set up in cups for every one to grab. The figure model was a pretty red head who stripped as soon as we were all ready to start drawing. She had her timer set up in intervals of 2 min, 5 minutes and then 10. Oli picked pencil, which explains why you can’t see any of her drawings, hahaha while I decided to go for charcoal, and that’s something we all know can get pretty messy.
I asked the host for a wine bottle opener, since Oli and I chugged our tiny cups so quickly. I struggled to open the bottle at first and was scared the cork would get stuck, but I got it.. and we started sipping away. It didn’t take long for us to be the loudest ones in the class. I think everyone hated us or were just a tad bit jealous that we had more booze. Maybe they should have thought ahead.
When our class was over, we were a little tipsy, more in fun that in actual inebriation. But when you’re in the moment, anything and everything is possible. I was taking photographs of Oli in front of a mural and a drunk guy starts conversation. At first he seemed innocent enough, and when he insisted on taking a picture of both Oli and I our night changed.
I simply told him, if you want to take a picture of us, you’ll have to give me something of collateral, give me cash, your ID and a sneaker. The sneaker was mostly for ridicule, because if you’re going to steal my camera, you’re going to be hopping away while you do it.

There was no way that I was going to hand off my precious, hard worked for equipment because I was too trusting. He actually handed me cash, his ID and I guess he realized what he was doing when I was waiting for the shoe.

It became this huge deal, and Oli was busy snapping away pictures in case things got out of hand, and I one point I was just like -fuck it-

We started to walk away, and that’s when all the rambling when on.

I had so many snapchat comments in the morning about how we had them cracking up it was insane. I’ll be posting the video in a few minutes, so stay tuned!

Atlantic City 2015

Vacations. We all need them, and want them even more. Chris’s mom, Millie has spoiled us rotten. She planned a whole family trip to Atlantic City. I’ve been brushing up on my card gaming skills, you know, just in case.

I have never been, and was pretty excited. 

The car ride was pretty uncomfortable, but we all managed through, when we finally got to spread our legs, the sight of the hotel made us forget about the pain. The lobby was full of machines, everything was so bright and light up. I only thought to myself.. If this is how cool A.C. looks, imagine Las Vegas?

We headed to the rooms to get comfy, and headed right back out to roam the Atlantic City boardwalk, which was pretty chilly surprisingly. When we got back, the boy, Chris and Matthew, taught us girls how to play poker. I’ve always wanted to learn, and even though Chris has tried to teach me before.. for some reason, I was finally understanding it now. Maybe it had to do with all the beer in my system.

The next day, we roamed the boardwalk some more, played in the sand and soaked up some sun rays with more beers. Beers are always the answer.

Dinner with the family was great. We all had burgers, keeping it simple and oh, so satisfying.

I’ll admit, that bubble bath was everything, especially since I had a special someone and some wine to join me. The hotel pool party was way too good, and i was feeling the buzz in no time. I was pretty much in my own world the whole time.

Chris started making conversation with some girl in a white dress and after a couple minutes I decided to go be nosy (you know…just in case) and when I looked at her, I immediately recognized her. I’ve met Laurie about once and have had her on my social media for some time now. We spent the rest of the night chatting up a storm, and drinking with her and her beau. 

The morning and check out time came a little too quickly. Chris was knocked out, while I packed our things. Ashley and Matt were already done and I’m running around trying to make sure we didn’t forget anything.

This tiny getaway was much needed. i had a great time. Thank you so much Millie, for allowing to be a party of your family’s escapades.

What It’s Like to Know You Can’t Have Kids via Buzzfeed

I bumped into this video via the famous Buzzfeed. Recently I have shared with you all, that I have PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome). Now, I know in my case having children in the future is not impossible, only merely difficult. I am also in no rush to have kids at the moment, but maybe in years to come I would like to know that I have that option.

I’ll be honest having faith and staying positive sure gets hard sometimes. Sometimes the negativity of it all can become overwhelming. Even though I’m not at the point of acceptance, if it never happens. It’s good to know that not having children won’t be the downfall of it all.

Sister Sister

I arrived at my little brother’s place, ready to spend the day with my sister. I was needing a day like this so bad. My sister Julissa and I have always been very close when growing, but not that we both have so much going on and live in different boroughs, we don’t always have the time to hang out. Today was the best exception.

First of all I was starving, and she had mangu waiting for me. After being all stuffed, the little bro Jeremy received a package in the mail, his new professional xbox remote. I don’t play video games, so I didn’t really see the difference. But hey, if it makes him happy why not? He locked himself in his room right away, Kiki was trying to figure the damn thing out too.

I needed to get rid of everything I just ate, I have the habit of walking right after I eat. Jula wasn’t up to that, so bike riding it was. We headed to the point, where we used to bike ride all the time as kids. The view is still beautiful, it makes you forget about your troubles for just a split second.

When we got to back to the house, we were all exchanging apps. Trying to figure out what the next big thing is. Kiki introduced me to “Periscope” which I pretty much got the hang of, but I didn’t really find convinient, especially since everything is live and at the moment.

I was ready for some wine, like I usually am. I rode to the liquor store and some creepy old men where to trying to hit on me, I was disgusted. Who ever told these men that that’s okay? Go pick up your saggy balls off the floor old man.

Wine was served, I was making tostones and my father was on the grill. It’s been a very long time since we have all out hung out together and it not being a special occasion. The only one missing was my brother Lu. But hey, it happens… almost all of us are out of the house now. We’re all growing up. Making time though, that’s where it counts.

Jonahs’s 1st Birthday

Well, hello there Captain!

My cousin Sasha’s baby boy is officially one. Time has gone so fast, from her maternity pictures, her baby shower, his arrival, baptism…. a whole year. Wow!

He’s the cutest little thing.

Sasha decorated everything amazingly. I was so happy to see my cousins. Here’s a quick video of our night.
