i was useless all day saturday.. although i did finish reading New Moon.. time to get Eclipse... some of my friends think i'm getting too into these books because almost everything reminds me of edward or bella.. ::sigh:: can i please be happy in a fantasy world of romantic vampires..?!

today i was able to finish big assignments and do some online window shopping..i want to go shoe shopping at ALDO... and buy these...

boredom thru pics...


i hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving.. i certainly did.  i have a lot to be thankful for =) i enjoyed the usual stuffing of the face with a nice glass of red.  then, read some more of new moon with another glass of red. lol. with our family get togethers i was surprised to have some quiet time. i found the most amazing nail polish color ever.. it's a deep deep red... like blood hahaha i've been reading these books too long. it's Flirt by Sally Hansen.. how appropriate. :p 
i also had sweet potato pie for the first time ever last night. where has it been all my life.? it's so YUMMY.!!! 

side note: if you sent me a mass Thanksgiving text and i didn't text back.. SORRY. sometimes the mass texts get a lil out of control. but THANK YOU. =) 


i'm suppose to be working on some assignments but don't feel like it.. yup i'm whining. oh well. instead i got the radio on blast and im 'surfing the net' lolol so.. thanks to photobooth.. here's my boredom thru pics lol



here's the nail polish 

song on the radio: beyonce. single ladies. see im doin the single ladies hand thingy haha

theeeeen.. the most amazing thing happened.. el burrito sabanero came on the radio.!!!!! 

so you know what that means.!!! 

time to take down the xmas decorations.!! and start ODin on xmas music.!! 
this is one of my favorite xmas songs...

random thought: i miss notes. like.. hand written notes that get passed in class. those were the best. what happened to them.?!

relax mode.

((background music: kanye 808s & heartbreaks... it's somethin serious))

::sigh:: i'm so happy to be able to relax after all of the pre-Thanksgiving break assignments.  i've been attached to my computer and finished everything i had to so i  had to go out and celebrate with the girls last night..  sometimes the nights that aren't even planned are the best.. happy hour turned into a night out.. in my work clothes lol... 
still have some work to do over the break but my stress level is back down to yellow.. lol 

i'm also reading New Moon over the break. after that horrible movie, i needed to be reminded of the amazing writing in the books.  

hello kitty and MAC are teaming up to make...

..on Twilight:

i got home from seeing the movie a little while ago and,well... i didn't hate it, but i didn't love it either.  i'm glad i saw it, but felt it could have been better.  the acting wasn't that great.  i think that with as much money that is coming in from this film, they could have afforded better actors.  at first, i wasn't sure about the actor who played Edward because I thought he looked too scruffy to be this 'porcelain skin Greek God' as described in the book, but, he did look the part in the movie so that was good.  they really made sure the Cullen family was glowing.  i guess i forgot they use make up and all that good stuff. lol. it's time to read the rest of the series. 

and i never went to target... it was chilly outside so we thought Starbucks pre-movie was a better idea.. i'll go in the morning.  hopefully get some goodies. 

i'm staying in tonight.  have a lot of work to do tomorrow and i would like to be able to function.  not to mention it's too cold... it's a great night for my black and pink polka dot fluffy socks.. PINK sweat pants.. tshirt.. and SNL. 

gnight kiddies. 

shop therapy.

haven't blogged in a few days.. 

had the day off yesterday.. that was nice. =) so i spent the day with Nicole and baby JJ. we did what we love to do.. went shopping.!! it's great therapy.. plus, we gotta get JJ started early ;) lol  picked up some cute clothes and ... I GOT MY BOOTS.!!! i got some cute tops and this super cute dress from forever21.. it looks simple in the pic, but really good on.

i still want a black jacket.. i'd like leather but hey, pleather will do.. went to MAC but didn't get anything :(  i know.. who does that.?! nikki got some makeup tho.. going shopping with her is the best.. there's never a 'hmm should i or shouldn't i' because her answer is always 'just get it, it's cute' i loves it. 

after our fantabulous day of shopping we opened a bottle of wine and cooked (or rather, i watched her cook) penne a la vodka.. YUM.  it's simple but i'd rather enjoy my wine and let her do her wifey thing. we ate and played with JJ who is getting so big. i really need to get a camera so i can take some pics... then for dessert i had to have some birthday cake remixxx.. 
PS. coldstone is having this 2 like it size ice cream creations for $5 so if you've never had it.. now is a great time to try it. 

it is still cold in Florida. i hope it doesn't go away. 
dear cold weather, please stay. till at least february. love, vero. 

i got the beyonce cd. it's really good. jamel and i have been dancing to it all day. he likes 'single ladies' almost as much as i do.  oh.. aaaaand. i heard the new kanye.. i should be getting it tonight. all i need is the britney.  STILL. 

KANYE WEST: anyway/paranoid. love this song.  i was listening to it and was thinking 'wow, makes sense'  i mean.. think about it.. a lot of people trip over dumb ish.. when they shouldn't even worry bout it. myself included at times. if you got it, you got it ;)  no matter what else is going on or what else is happening.  no sense in messin things up just because you 'worried bout the wrong things' so, yea.  that's all ima say about that. 

that's all for now. i gotta make a quick run to target then i'm going to see Twilight.. in my new boots of course lolol.. i'll blog my thoughts on the movie either tonight or tomorrow.

i can't...

...get enough of this song or the video.. 

...believe how long this cold weather has lasted.. it makes me so happy... even tho waking up at 6 am isn't easy when you're freezing... but i get to wear my fluffy socks at night =) 

...stop thinking about the rest of the twilight series.. i want to read them but i really need to finish up all of these reports i have.  i'm such a procrastinator.  although i must admit, i do my best work under stress... and my stress level is only on yellow. i'm adding them to my book wish list and bumping them right to the top.. i mean.. it only makes sense to read them back to back, right.?

...wait to see the movie.

...go out this weekend. booooo.  but really. i need to lock myself in my room until all my work is done. 

...stand when people mix up 'their'  'there' and 'they're'

wu tang?

A couple weeks ago, nicole and i went to pick up her bfs little cousin and he was telling us about this wu tang dance thing.  We had NO idea what he was talking about.. we were thinking Wu Tang as in Method Man, RZA, ODB.. wrong.. lol... so after laughing of confusion and feeling old for 2.5 seconds we forgot about it.  Then, yesterday, a classmate was telling me about her son doing this wu tang dance at a party. again.. i had no idea what it was so i decided to youtube it. HILARIOUS. there's even videos of little kids doing it. 

today at the end of the day as the kids were waiting for the bell to ring i heard someone singing the song so i looked over to see a tiny 4th grader doing this dance.. haha.. i find this highly entertaining. 

Another lovely night of reports. yay.

I read on PerezHilton today that Britney's new CD has leaked.  

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I really want it.! I wish i knew how to find it buuut i don't.  So, if you do, please let me know.  i would greatly appreciate it. =) i love her and all her craziness.  i know people have their doubts but blackout was really good... had some good beats on it.  it's fun 'time to wake up and get ready for the day' music.. lol and while i'm asking about music.. the beyonce 'i am/sasha fierce' would be nice too. 

It's monday, which means i had to jump back into my classes. ugh. after doing nothing but working, reading Twilight, and going out i seem to have neglected the fact that it is the end of my final semester (ahhhh!!!!) and i have a lot of reports and assignments to complete.! So tonight i'll be watching Gossip Girl with my laptop and papers everywhere.. lol.. let's see how that goes. 

speaking of britney AND gossip girl.. this is by far the best tv promo:

i woke up this morning to another day of fabulous weather.! i checked and it's going to be like this for the next few days.  it feels like winter.. not to mention i drove by a christmas tree tent.. the trees weren't there yet but the tent means they're coming.!! do you think it's too early to break out the xmas decorations.?!?! no, right?! lol. i'll start putting them up the day i hear 'el burrito sabanero' on power96.. that marks the beginning of the Christmas season..

then today i woke up to such beautiful weather.!  i hope it stays like this all week so i can break out the sweaters and the scarves.  

vicky and i were on skype with my dad and the baby and we started talking about jamel's hair and how she wants to cut it.  she was debating bc his curls are so cute but he looks crazy when its too long lol. so, we found yeyo's clippers, sat jamel in his booster chair, and tia vero became barber vero haha. we kept skype on so my dad could watch lol.. and even when he's an ocean away, he's still talkin junk tellin us what we're doing wrong..haha

yay for yeya.

i bought the cutest scarf weeks ago when it was still cold outside.  but, being that i'm so petite, it was too long on me and didn't look right so i never got to wear it.  i'm so lucky to have such a wonderful yeya (grandma).. i came home from work the other day and she hemmed it for me.. there it was.. the perfect length.. just sitting on my bed.  i just have to wait for it to get chilly again to wear it..  
oh. and now i want this one.. MTTM puff scarf in black.

promise yourself...

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and expect only the best. 
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you. 


after a not so great day... i needed that. =)  reading it always makes me feel better.. 

It's Tuesday and I still don't have Twilight... soon.. very soon.

and lil J is wearing too much dark eye makeup these past few episodes.. is it the whole fashion designer.ness.?!... smh. but her haircut is cute.  I NEED CABLE.!

Jamel woke me up at the crack of dawn on Saturday... so much for sleeping in.. so I spent the day watching movies and eating.. had lunch.. went to coldstone.. cake batter icecream with rainbow sprinkles is my absolute favorite icecream EVERRR.. the bday cake remixx is amazing too but can be very filling.. then went to the theater to see Role Model which is funnier than i thought it would be... thennn went home and watched Why Did I get Married.. man oh man is there truth in that 80/20 rule... ;)

oh and i downloaded skype so i can video chat with my dad in Spain and see video of my baby brother =) now he can see and hear me.. it makes me happy knowing that now Vicky and I will be more than just pictures.. technology is fabulous

ok so.. the best part of going to the theater is watching the previews right? RIGHT.! i've been hearing so much about this book Twilight.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Someone told me it's a vampire love story so I said ehh no thanks.. doesn't sound like my cup of tea.. not to mention i've seen some of my middle schoolers with this book.. but more and more adults keep telling me it really is a good book/series.. and i sure do love a good book.. so i was already entertaining the thought of reading it when...... i saw the preview for the movie... now i reallly want to read it. might have to stop by barnes&noble on the way to class tomorrow.

oh and my current obsessions:

Fellow Americans...

it is with the utmost pride and sincerity
that I present this blog, as a living testiment and recollection
of history in the making during our generation.....

Allow me to introduce our 44th president..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"America, now is not the time for small plans. Now is the time to finally meet our moral obligation to provide every child a world-class education, because it will take nothing less to compete in the global economy....
I'll invest in early childhood education. I'll recruit an army of new teachers, and pay them higher salaries, and give them more support. And in exchange, I'll ask for higher standards and more accountability....

Yes, we must provide more ladders to success for young men who fall into lives of crime and despair. But we must also admit that programs alone can't replace parents, that government can't turn off the television and make a child do her homework, that fathers must take more responsibility to provide love and guidance to their children.

Individual responsibility and mutual responsibility, that's the essence of America's promise. And just as we keep our promise to the next generation here at home, so must we keep America's promise abroad...

America, our work will not be easy. The challenges we face require tough choices. And Democrats, as well as Republicans, will need to cast off the worn-out ideas and politics of the past, for part of what has been lost these past eight years can't just be measured by lost wages or bigger trade deficits. What has also been lost is our sense of common purpose, and that's what we have to restore...

Change happens -- change happens because the American people demand it, because they rise up and insist on new ideas and new leadership, a new politics for a new time.

America, this is one of those moments.

I believe that, as hard as it will be, the change we need is coming, because I've seen it, because I've lived it.....

Instead, it is that American spirit, that American promise, that pushes us forward even when the path is uncertain; that binds us together in spite of our differences; that makes us fix our eye not on what is seen, but what is unseen, that better place around the bend....

America, we cannot turn back...

... not with so much work to be done; not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for; not with an economy to fix, and cities to rebuild, and farms to save; not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend.

America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone.

At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to march into the future. Let us keep that promise, that American promise, and in the words of scripture hold firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America."

-Barack Obama

Step Into My World...

So I've decided to start my very own blog.. it seems like lots of fun and a place to write things i find interesting.. things i like.. and my thoughts.. like an online diary :)  just one that i share with the world...   let's see what silliness i can find to write about.!!! 

So.. I'm in class today and I ask the girl that sits next to me if she has a piece of gum.. 
she hands me Fruit Stripe.!!! I haven't seen it in so long.! It's the zebra gum that has the tattoos on the wrapper.. mine is the zebra dude dunkin a BasketBall..  I tried using it as a tattoo but it didn't work.. :(
