Birthday Wishes!





Here we are again…another year of life celebrated!  It seems like I was just in Miami with my family, bringing in the big 3-0!  Now, I’m the big 3-1 and wondering where the time went.  So many changes came about over the past year, both good and bad, and I must say that it feels good to see how strong of a woman I am becoming.  As life shifts into a new phase, I am embracing it.  I welcome new experiences and adventures.  Thank you to everyone who has shown me love on my special day…here’s to another year of growth, lessons and love.

Dirty 30 Club!


Yup, that’s right…it’s here…like totally HERE!  I’m QUEEN for a day and I must say, it feels good.  As you all know, I’ve been in panic mode and freaking out about turning 30.  However, now that my birthday is here, well…it’s not all that bad.  I spent an amazing weekend in Miami with family to celebrate…I’m fabulous, I’m driven, I’m READY! So, I’ve been asking around and some have offered insight as to what happens in the Dirty 30 Club.  I mean, do I get free drinks?  Is it free for me and all of my guests?  Do I get to pop bottles?  What happens?  Here is what I was told:

-Now that you’re 30, it’s time to say f*ck the bullsh!t

-30’s are the best time of your life!

-30 is when you really start living

-It’s when you say, “I’m comfortable with my body, I love where I’m at…”

-30’s are when your sex drive goes up (lol)

So, if this is what I’m in for…heeeey I’m gooooooood!  Happy Birthday to MEEEE!!!  It’s time to look towards my future!

Birthdays and Hip-Hop!

Sorry for the delay in getting on here, but as you all know, life happens!  I had an amazing weekend and got to experience some wonderful things…just thought I’d share the highlights!  First off, it was my beautiful mother’s birthday (say, “Happy Birthday Mommy!”) and I got to spend lots of time with her and the rest of my family and friends.  She loved every second of her party (so did I)!

I also forgot to mention that a few weeks ago my mom received an award from the National Conference of Puerto Rican Women (NACOPRW) at the 2012 ODESSA Awards ceremony.  She was recognized for her public and civil work within the community!  YES! She takes care of her own on a daily basis.

Love you, Mommy!

The next exciting thing about my weekend was attending the Life is Good tour with Nas and Lauryn Hill.  YES! She is back!  If you don’t know, now you know…she is my all-time favorite female artist!  I had such a great time!
