May I Recommend: Music, Movie, TV, and Book Edition.

So here are a few of the things that I have enjoyed in the last few months.


I LOVE The Fray! Not just because they are the local boys who just happen to be everywhere these days, but because I love their music.
How to Save a Life is my favorite song. I also love Over My Head (Cable Car), Look After You, and All at Once.

ANYTHING by Ricardo Arjona. We all know how much I love him. On his latest cd Adentro. Pinguinos en la Cama, Iluso, Mojado, A Ti, AcompaƱame a Estar Solo. Are some of my favorites. I can keep going but i wont. :)

Yeah, you knew I was going to see this. My first husband The Rock is in it so, you know I was there. It is the same old football movie we have seen before with a twist. Yeah some of the speeches and sceens are corny and played out but give this movie a chance. It reminded me that there are still people out there who care.


Yeah so this is old but I loved it. It's all made up and blah, blah blah but hey it is well written.

I LOVED reading this one more then the first. Gregory Maguire is a genius. If you have not picked this one up yet, I suggest you go out and get it.

I love this book. I recommend the whole Shopaholic series. I laughed so much with these books.

Our girl Shelley did it again. She wrote one of those books that you find yourself reading at 3 o'clock in the morning knowing dayum well that you have to be at work in a few hours but you just cant put it down because its that good and you need to know what happens next. Yeah this book is one of those.

Sofia is a well known published author under the name Black Artemis. Diva's is a great book. I found myself going through all kinds of emotions with this one. I also could relate the protagonist, to people that i know in real life.


Showtimes Weeds has to be one of the best shows out there. Who would have thought that a show about a single mother who makes ends meet by selling marijuana in the fictional suburb of Agrestic, California could be so funny.

The Fantabulous 5

In this life you are considered to be lucky and very blessed to find a person who loves you for being well you. Well I am REALLY blessed because I found not one but four people who love me for being perfectly unperfect.

Caro, Joe, Nataly and Gabe, the loves of my life. God only knows what I be without them. They are not only my cousins and nephew but my best friends. I love them all so much.

The Fantabulous 5 (I love the name Nat).

Lord knows we are a mess. We are silly and loud and everywhere, but over all we are a bunch of fun. I have no idea how we do it, but we turn the most simple thing, like going to the movies into an adventure that we end up talking about for days. We cry (alot), fight ( not so much) and most of all laugh...oh lord do we laugh. Everything and anything becomes a joke, but yet at the same time we know when it is time to put the joking aside and get down to business.

I love that about us. We dont take ourselves or anything to serious. I also love how we stick together no matter what. Nada comes between us. It's so amazing to wake up every morning and know that they are people out there who love and support you no matter what.

Caro...I love our parking lot conversations, I always learn so much from our conversations and because of that I end up being a better person. I love how you are always so damn positive, even when you think that you are not. You are always reminding me that things do get better, sometimes you just have to wait. Thanks for waiting with me.

Joey, Joey, Joey...I dont even know where you get half the shit you say, but damn do you make me laugh. I am so damn proud of you for overcoming everything you have, and still having such a beautiful outlook on life. Without even knowing it you give me strength on those days when it all gets to be to much. Now don't let all that go to your head Joe, I still hate you :)

Nataly, I love that you love so freely. You put yourself out there whether people like it or not. You always do you, and I love that about you. You don't change for anyone. You keep me from becoming the old BITTER lady with 50 cats....lol. You remind me that there is always hope.

Gabe, El Gobble...lol..(you know i had to call you that). Your like my own bodyguard always having my back even when I dont want you too. Always looking out for me(and the others). Always making me laugh with all the stupid shit you say. When we put you and Joe together, forget it I cry from how hard I am laughing. Thanks for always listening and calling me on my shit...lol.

These lyrics keep playing over and over in my mind when I think about the Fantabulous 5:

Without You
The Moon Glows
The River Flows
But I Die Without You

I guess what I am trying to say is that I LOVE YOU all so much and THANK YOU for coming along on this journey called life...

I can't think of anyone else I would rather share it with.

A night under the stars

Last Friday I took Nataly, My mom, Nataly's mom, Caro's mom and a few of our aunt to the Ricardo Arjona concert.

I LOVE Ricardo Arjona, he is one of my favorite singers ever! So when I heard he was coming I knew that I was going no matter what. When we returned from Ny, I started making calls and was able to get 10 tickets.

I know that some people think that 10 tickets are alot but there were not. Everyone wanted to go and there were not enough tickets. So we decided to make it a girls night and I took the ladies with me and Nataly because it was her birthday a few days before that. We had AMAZING seats and I have to take a minute to thank Edwin for the hook up.

Everyone met up at my house and then we went to the Coors Amphitheatre where the concert was held. I love that venu because it is an outdoor venue and that night was just beautiful. It was your typical August Colorado night with a light breeze and all the stars out. It was just breath taking. Then to top it all off we had great music.

The concert was amazing. I can't even discribe it to you. The place was packed and everyone was happy, singing along, and just having a great time. Ricardo is just amazing and so damn sexy. I know from looking at pictures of him you might not think so but there is just something about him that makes him so sexy.

Since Nataly and I were sitting in a separete section from the ladies the ride home was full of converstation. The ladies were so happy and excited it was so cute and made all the work I went through to get those tickets worth it. Nataly was talking about how sexy Ricardo Arjona was when Caro's mom mention that he had a nice behind....lol. Nataly and I had to agree...lol.

Those ladies are so cute. They were cracking Nataly and I up the whole way home. They talked about everything from the songs they loved to what the girls in front of them were wearing....lol. I was able to take a few pictures and was able to capture a few seconds of one of my favorite song on video before my camera died, because it hates me. Thanks to Youtube I was able to find the whole video. The sounds is not all that great but hey.

So here it is for you to enjoy. The ladies are ready for their next concert and ask me everyday when we are going to do it again...lol.
La Naty and me at the concert.
Us again.
LOL, I dont even know.

Ricardo Arjona.
