A True Icon

Some people have their Grace Kelly or their Audrey Hepburn, and I have Imelda Marcos. Through thick and thin she proved to be a loyal wife, graceful, and yes, eccentric to the point of crazy. But who gets to throw the first stone?

My favorite quote from her: “They went in looking for skeletons in my closet, but all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes.”

Mom is getting ready to leave for a vacation back home, and I have ordered a mistiza dress for my wedding. I’m crossing fiingers and toes that she comes back with something traditional and beautiful. I’m hoping to look like this black and white photo.

A Little Housekeeping

cropped-cover.jpg

Attempting another revamp of the blog. Please be patient as I clear some clutter and refocus the site.

As a personal update – I currently work full time as a telemarketer at home, and part time as a promotional model at various liquor stores and bars. I volunteer for a couple non for profit organizations. I also consider myself a homemaker and enjoy cooking meals for my little family. And more recently, I’m in the beginning stages of planning my wedding.

When I’m not working, cooking or cleaning, I enjoy watching movies, and binge watching shows. I visit Makerspace at least weekly, and attempt to be a maker in their various sections, whether by attending a class or fumbling around on my own. I also try to spend time with my friends, watching baseball games, eating out, grabbing drinks, and/or goofing off.

And, of course, I enjoy naps. Lots of it!
