Step by Step…

One Small Step for man kind one giant step for Zion Max.  Zion Max is so freakin amazing!  He makes me laugh every chance he gets.  I love his sense of adventure when it comes to things around the house, however, getting him to walk has been a challenge.  He has this “when I’m ready I’m ready’ attitude, and I love that about him.  As many times as I tried to walk with him and then slowly release my hand from his, he refuses to take his first steps.  Instead he would gently lower himself to the ground and then clap his hands as though he accomplished something big.  I, as a mommy, do not discourage anything my babies do, so I did what any Mommy would do and clap and cheered him on.  Because I see it as this, it may not be anything big to us, since we walk all day everything, but for Zion its new, its fresh,  just to be able to stand alone with no support is a huge accomplishment for him!

Now, after weeks of trying My Zion has finally taken his first leap of faith into the unknown world of wabblling and collapsing.  He has been doing great!  And Mommy is sooo Proud.  Enjoy the video of Zion’s first steps…

A Case of the Mondays

My alarm was set for 6am this morning, and after snoozing it 5 times I finally woke up frantically in a rush at 6:43am.  I miraculously was able to bathe, brush my teeth, get dressed, put my make-up on, and prepare my lunch all in a records time of 25min.  I jetted out my front door, rushed down the steps (in which I almost fell and broke my neck) ran to my car in a not so cute way, and I did this all in hopes to arrive at work by 7:30am.  The Expressway was clear and smooth sailing, which was perfect for me because it allowed me to be at work at my desk ready to receive calls by 7:29am (damn I’m good).

My shift starts at 7:30am and ends at 4pm.  I only get two 15min breaks and one 1/2hr lunch.  Now I just recently got a temp job doing Customer Service just until I start school next week.  I work in the call center and for those who know the basis of a call center then you know that it is where customer service reps (such as myself) provide a service, via telephone, to the customers and or clients that call in.  The problem I have is that you need customers to actually call in to complain or request assistance or whatever the need that is required so that you can provide the service to them. I only received  3 calls tops the entire day 2 of the 3 averaged out to about 6min each.  The rest of my day was DEAD, BORING, UNPRODUCTIVE, LIFELESS, POINTLESS…you guys get the picture!  That can drive any logically sane and normal human being into the insane asylum for real.  Seriously people…I am almost checked myself in today.  I had so much dead time that, believe it or not, I actually wrote this blog down on paper then typed it in deleted it and then typed it in again…I know people I know…just another case of the Mondays. So here is what I did today

-Had 3 cups of black coffee just to stay up

-Played 48 games of Hangman

-Played the “You must choose” game

-Played about 15 games of Skee Ball

-A couple of Mad Libs

-Facebook

-Surfed the web

-Web shopping (similiar to window shopping only you do it on the internet)

Forever 21

Singer22.com

Style.com

-Read several cool blogs

-Oh and I answered about a total of 6 calls., but 3 really don’t count since they were transfers.  Not to mention the 3rd and last call was right before my shift ended and it tapped over past 4 o’clock and I was like aint this a @#$@#%@#%!@#…I wait all day for a call and 5 min before I leave I finally get one only to last for 35min…..not cool…not cool at all.

Just another Case of the Mondays

Mid-Century Obsession

I know ideally how I would like my first home to look.  I have an obsession with vintage things so without a doubt I know that I want a mid-century touch to my home.  But I am also fascinated with  new and modern designs that can bring elegance and simplicity to a home, and of course personal eclectic touch to my place that will make it unique in style.  Ideas are derived from my own creative imagination, mid-century architects and designers, other inspirational rooms and colors, and people.  Here is one that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside… ( – :

Who Inspires You?

I have learned throughout my years that inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone!  From the sun setting and cascading an array of breathtaking colors across the sky to a smile so genuine and pure that it can ignite and uplift any soul.  I have learned this because not only have I experienced it, I have lived it.

Community is so important to a persons life, it is vital to support and encourage one another for the greater cause .  When we unite and uplift each other we create a chain reaction, causing people to be different, to swim against the current and rise above the waves.

Here are just some of the people that inspire me.

Jesse Santoyo – He is amazing in every way a man can be.  He is a great leader, teacher, father, husband, songwriter, musician, artist, entrepreneur, and friend. He speaks with directness and compassion.  He holds himself with pride but is never prideful, and he loves people and community.  He wants to change the world through the arts.  Jesse sees the world half full and not half empty.  He believes in people, encourages people, and inspires people.  He is my hero…

My boys – Diego Alexander & Zion Max -They are my riot of color in my dreary gray world…They make me laugh, sing, and at time go crazy…lol.  They pour life into my world.  They give me so much to look forward to and then some.  I pray that I can raise them to be the men of God they were called to be…They inspire me to paint, to design, to teach, to laugh when it hurts, and to love unconditionally…I love my boys…

Kelly Johnson –  Not only was this woman my pastora..lol..she is an amazing Mommy.  She devotes her whole life to her 3 children: Kourtney, Mckenna, and Blake.  The creative activities that she comes up with are impressive, and she somehow makes it educational in every way.  Aside from being an amazing mom she is an incredible artist..she bakes and designs some amazing cakes..I post a few so that you may see for yourself.  She inspires me to lead my children with dignity and respect, she (without realizing that she does) helps me to create new ways to teach my boys about God, people and life.

Michelle & Joseph Bulger– I have never met a person such as her.  SHE IS CRAZY! But the most genuine, thoughtful person you will ever meet.  She cares about people, believes in people, and hopes for people.  She too is an incredible mommy, devoted to her children like a mother should.  She is a true friend…she tells me things that I like to hear and things that I don’t like to hear but God knows I need to hear it.  She is a straight shooter, what you see is what you get with her (a rarity in this day and age).  She inspires me to love out loud, never never judge, for you may never know what that individual has gone through or what they are facing, and believe in myself because she believes in me.  A rare friend indeed. Oh and Joseph is cool too….lol

Jennifer Polanco – She has no idea how much she inspires me!  She is an incredible woman.  The most pure at heart.  She is compassionate and a talented artist (although she may not think so) her work speaks for itself.  She is an occupational therapist and pours words of life into people who think that there is no hope for them, and she manages to turn a lifetime of doubt and sorrow into hope and joy.  She gets nervous when she speaks but when she does she speaks life.  She’s smart, devoted, courageous, passionate, and hard-working.  She is beautiful in every way.

Who do you inspire and who inspires you? When we encourage each other we strengthen each other. Love out loud!

1 Thessalonians 5:11 – Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…
