Yesterday my friend Mo and I took the kiddos to the Chelsea Market where they were having a Halloween event. Gabby’s daddy met up with us too. It was pretty fun. Thanks to Mo for all the pics! =)
OK,times are tough but you can still manage to look good. Its all about budgeting and finding great deals.Aside from the whole recession,raising kids is expensive. We always put our kiddos first too.But once in a while you gotta spoil yourself a bit.Here are some great finds I’ve found in LA.
I got this dress for $14.00 at this store on Union Street and 5th avenue in Brooklyn.A few doors down from Brooklyn Industries.They always have amazing deals.
So as you can see I’ve gotton some very good deals.There are always great deals out there u just gotta keep an eye open. Also try and not to second guess yourself because the item may be gone before you know it! Being fashionable doesnt mean having to spend tons of money on clothing.Its all about how you feel and work with what you have. Anyone can still look good on a budget.

I absolutly LOVE this pic of Gabby and her daddy.
Sorry I’ve been slacking with posting new stuff. My laptop is officially dead,so uh yea…makes it just a little harder to blog.On a brighter note-Miss Gabby and I are in Los Angeles,CA til the 29th. Its so nice to get away from NYC for a bit. I love NYC,I just really despise any cold weather.
Yesterday my good friend Hollie,Miss Gabby and I headed to Venice Beach. It was really nice out. I love Venice Beach. Its cool to see all the stuff the vendors sell from jewelry,music and art. I got my self a pair of sun glasses since Gabby has broken every pair I own. SMH! Initally we didnt plan on going in the actual water but uh…plans changed.
We had a really great time. I LOVE going to the beach. Gabby does too.She loves the water. Beach,pool,sprinklers tub…anything! lol
Doesnt Gabby look like she was walking in the desert? lol
Well time to get ready and head off to a new adventure out here in sunny LA.
When I first started watching ‘Jon and Kate Plus 8’ I fell in love with the show. Eight kids! That is just crazzzy! I can barely handle my toddler at times,I can only imagine having 7 more kiddos running around. I gave Jon and Kate hella props for doing their thing. However,I used to feel bad for Jon. Kate did belittle him quite often. But then again he shoulda stood up for himself more. Jon seemed like sucha sweet husband and great father. Boy was I wrong! Its crazy how much he has changed. Both physically and mentally I suppose. He’s acting like an immature f*cking teenager. Like who the F*ck really paid to go see him host a Las Vegas pool party! Losers! And shame on the people who even hired him! Then now that he’s seperated from Kate he wants to be a little whore? And then his little whores want their little 15 minutes of fame. smh..grow the f*ck up Jon and act your age! And the latest gossip says he took hella money out of his joint bank account with Kate. He probaly spent that money on hideous Ed Hardy clothes and more hair plugs. Oh yeah and wooing all these women so they’ll sleep with him. Sure Kate was a bitch at times but damn dude,you hella screwed her over. She has 8 kids to deal with! Stop being selfish and let Kate do ‘Kate Plus 8’. She’ll need all that money to put all your kids through college. Ugh,enough on this asshole. I just needed to vent!
Age: 18mo. (time flies!)
Favorite cartoon: hmmmmm… He likes Go Diego Go and Plaza Sesamo… any show with music
Favorite food: “teta” lol he’s still addicted to his bottle/sippy cup
Favorite activities: At 18 months he loves running, throwing and kicking balls, climbing stairs and going down slides. Fun fun fun!(He also likes getting into things he’s not supposed to and playing the tease when he offers you something lol)
Struggles: Hmmm, he’s a little behind on speaking, he only says about 4 words clearly. Also, he is very prone to getting sick… I am not looking forward to the winter flu season…
Strengths: He is very smart! He can find things that are hidden, he understands a lot of things I say in both English and Spanish, even if I don’t teach him before hand!
This weeks MOTW (M.I.L.F of The Week) is a very good amiga of mine. Another fellow West Coast lover!
Name: Mo (no gov’t on a blog lol)
Age: 24 Location: Brooklyn, NY
Occupation: Looking for work…
Status: Living with partner Kids: 1 for now! Ruben
Do you consider yourself a M.I.L.F? Yes! Besides being extra sexy I am always putting my all towards being the best mom I can be and succeeding for myself as well as my son.
Favorite part of mommyhood? Enjoying my time with Ruben, watching him grow and become his own little person.
Least Favorite? The struggles of temper tantrums and not being able to get quality time alone or with my boyfriend without baby
Any advice? Network network network, talk to other moms because they will understand you at least on a basic mom level. Get out of the house as much as possible, even just for a walk or to a park. It’s important for your health. Don’t ever feel like a bad parent for lack of knowledge or patience, you are still human after you become a parent.
Sorry I’ve been missing in action. First off my daughter was away last weekend with her dad,so I had no mommy adventures to blog about.To top it off I was sick as well.Now that I’m better my lil munchkin is still a bit sick and her dad just got sick too. I hate that the weather has been changing so much lately. I really want to move back to Southern California in a few years. I’m so over the cold seasons. I will be updating soon so be sure to check back soon!
