Where Have I Been?

Seriously, I have read people's blogs bout Etsy, but never knew anything of it... Finally, my curiosity got the best of me and now I am an addict... I love quotes and boy, oh boy do I need to share this one...ESPECIALLY for those who know me... I need to make this purchase when I get the money for sure!

Life is full of them for sure. Currently, I am babysitting my niece, Krischna's [Will's sister] daughter Kaylyn [not biological, but my niece regardless]...She's teething =I  This is a big trial for sure. Some day I want children... and this is a true test...I've worked with kids before and babysat before, but not for as long as I have been with her. I love her to death and I see her often. Auntie Risha loves babysitting her because there's never a dull moment. But teething is NO JOKE! Poor baby doesn't sleep much. Today, has been different though... Thursday I watched her for like 3 hours, while her mom went to a meeting, of that she cried for half [so it seemed]... Friday, was great...minimal fussing and lots of laughs...Today, well I fed her and she was good but then started crying pacifier... I gave her some teething tablets and they seemed to do the trick, she slept for an hour and a half and woke up super fussy again, but still tired... I rocked her to sleep again... she's still napping so I decided to blog.

I am still jobless, but I have no doubt that it WILL get better soon. Last week I got a call from Office Team, a job agency. I figured I have been looking for a job long enough, maybe someone should help me. A woman, who I didn't like because of the way she carries herself, referred me to them. I went in that day and tested. I didn't do too bad. Now I just need to call in and let them know I am available for work.

On 9-7-2010, I celebebrated my 6 year anniversary with Will <3 Yeah I know, when's the wedding? HA HA... Let me just answer the question for you guys... I need to be asked to marry him first...and well I think the job factor needs to kick in...How else can we pay for a wedding? I am just saying... Although, being asked most certainly won't hurt anything =)

In the mean time, I still have Avon, which hopefully picks up. In all honesty, it is cheaper on people. I save so much more using their products. So if interested, =) I also applied to work at Panera Bread by LAX; I can't work with Will at Torrance or Krischna at Carson. I am pretty much a shoe in for the job, but I most definitely will not take it for granted... being without a job SUCKS! Money is money. If this is what it takes to get me where I want, then bring it on!

I think I have babbled enough... have a great morning, day, night!

[Side note: sometimes it sucks getting hooked up with a job. All of the ones I have had, besides Miller Barondess, LLP., have been handed to me... hopefully, I get one soon regardless of what it is...I know, I know I am being redundant...SUE ME!]

Cause we think like that...

First the reason for my title is because I keep telling myself I need to update my blog... I have been telling Jenalee that... Along with thinking it in my head, last night I got a text from Candice about blogging... LOL she beat me to it... I have been here thinking "man I have so much to type" and procrastinating, but doing that will only make me have to type more. I am going to update you guys in months =)

Not sure if I updated, but my sister was asked to move and we needed someone to come in and help with rent. Our friend Matt and his girlfriend Star, who's pregnant, moved in with us. More on that later....

I know I have an update in May, but I was so busy with the Census, that I didn't really update. The joy of making money. Hopefully, it turns around for me. I have been praying every day. We went to Vegas for sweeps and neither of us made money =( A week after coming back was Candice's Bridal Shower. It was BEAUTIFUL:

The job hunt was on... obviously I haven't gotten a job yet, but I am not giving up. This was the month I believe Jenalee announced she was pregnant and I am so happy for her! This was also the crunchtime month. After the bridal shower, time decided to fly... so much that I really don't remember what happened in June, just the end...on the 30th, I went over to Candice's house and helped her with last minute wedding details. I am a pro bottle cleaner and I am not complaining at all. You'll see what I mean after I post pics...

Brace yourself, this is the long one...The first was the wedding rehearsal/dinner. With the last minute running around. Because I helped so much, Candice's mom paid for me to get a manicure and pedicure. She made me feel soooo appreciated. The rehearsal made everything seem so real. Never have I been in a wedding and after the rehearsal, I have to admit I was SUPER nervous. Not to mention the fact that Candice had Ken and I walk out first... No pressure! Here's a pic from rehearsal:

The dinner was held and Candice's aunt and uncle's house. The food was delicious. July 2nd was her Bachelorette Party. You're probably thinking, "why the day before?" The answer is because the bride cares what her bridal party has planned. No weekend worked so it was either no party or day before. This was also my first Bachelorette Party... it was definitely a night full of laughs. We went to Maciel's, one of her bride's maids, house and partied there and then headed out for some dancing. That was fun and for those who know me, know that I am not much of a dancer, but I sure did have some fun:

As you can see, I am not to good at taking a pic [mine's on the left and her's is on the right]. The other pics, well they can't be seen., unless it was by someone who was at the party =) That night I stayed at Candice's house. I felt so special. The plan was for me to get dropped off and Will pick me up at the wedding. I think that went well. The thing about the Galvan house, they make you feel like family. I miss them so much. I only spent a week with them and they've definitely left an impression on my heart. So here it is, July 3rd, WEDDING DAY! Lots of getting ready for sure. Dercell came and did my makeup and Jadira [Candice's sister-in-law and bride's maid] did my hair, with the style done by her mom:

So the only pictures that I have from the wedding are behind the scenes and the reception. The ceremony was amazing. I started tearing up when Jared, sorry to say, started to cry. It was so sweet. So here's a couple of pics. I am so happy for the newlyweds <3

July 4th they had a gift opening day. I have pictures from that, but I won't post any. They got a lot of loot. I was glad I went because it was the last time I was gonna see her for a while. No text, no communicating. Honeymoon time...

On Wednesday July 14th, I was fortunate enough to get my hair done with Krischna. While at Jamie's we saw a post that said "We should continue the honeymoon in Vegas" from Jared. That would be awesome! They were seriously thinking about coming, but Candice had to go to the ER so I was in Vegas alone, going crazy. Not her fault though.

The next week, I had heard something that bothered me and really needed to talk to Candice. I needed to talk to her, not sure what she was doing, I texted her and asked her to call me when she wasn't busy. About 2 hours later I got a call from her HUSBAND saying she was in the ER again and I could go visit if I wanted. Something was wrong, but they didn't know what. Now if you know me again, I HATE the hospital...I think it's more of a fear. I told her when I got there that I don't want to have to come back, that she couldn't do this to us again. I stayed and visited for a while. They were running tests and it pained me to see her in pain and they had no answer for her. I went home thinking the next time I see her in the hospital, better be when she has a baby. Thursday morning I got a call that couldv'e changed my life FOREVER. Jared told me Candice's appendix ruptured. I was trying to get off the phone as quick as I could so that I could cry my eyes out. I almost lost my best friend [and Jared almost lost his wife]... I can deny it all I want, but Will and almost all the females he works with calls her that and I am really starting to believe it. I know Candice won't hurt me. Candice it's true. I consider you my best friend. I was visiting the hospital more frequently, but she was most definitely worth it. She's better now. She's home and getting stronger every day.

Still on the job hunt and going crazy in this house. I feel like a prisoner in my own home. We have a ps3 and Matt brought home some games to play. He's an addict! He ties up my living room TV and I am confined to my room. I seriously am going bonkers. I need a job badly. My tank is on E and I am not talking gas tank. This month I planned on enrolling in the Paralegal Certificate program at Cal State Dominguez Hills. I was struggling to get a loan though, so needless to say, that didn't happen. I will complete the program, I just need to get the funding.

It's already here! In 6 days it will be mine and Will's... and Jared and Candice's 6 year anniversary! Only they have an even better anniversary to share <3 6 years!! I can't believe we made it this far. Lord and Candice knows we've had our ups and downs, but we've made it this far =)

That's all for now. Hope you guys have been entertained enough... next time it won't be so long.
