those days

puerto rico

June 2011

Those days that make you feel fortunate. That have potential. Those days that you feel beautiful. Your best. That make you believe the world is at your fingertips. And that there are no challenges too extreme for you to overcome. Those days that can sometimes feel as if they are far and few between. But when you experience them, they are unforgettable. And you appreciate them. Because they help us get through this crazy roller coaster of life. And they make us believe that we’ll have another one of… those days.

reunion dinner in NYC with Taisa, Natalie, Renee, Rebecca and Melanie!

Hey, hey, did I mention I’m on the east coast? I’ve been catching up with fam and friends back home and loving every non-stop minute of it. The old saying definitely rings true — distance makes the heart grow fonder. But there is no better feeling when you’re able to pick up right where you left off with friends, despite how much time has passed between visits. Really makes me appreciate my east coast loveys that much more!

A few days ago, Melanie and I spent the day in New York City, where I was the only idiot one baring legs with shorts. For the record, at least they were wool shorts! Fully fessing up to having my heart set on a socks with heels look, no matter how chilly it was going to be outside. Weather, you won’t hold me down. SO happy I got to see Mariah and meet Jake, as well as catch up with Taisa, Natalie, Renee and Rebecca over yummy Malaysian food. Amazing times with amazing people.

lucky magazine levis curve id event

This Thursday, I’ll be heading over to Lucky magazine and Levi’s Curve ID “Fit Event” at the Levi’s Store in Beverly Hills. From 7 – 9 p.m., shoppers will receive a custom “Curve ID Fit Measurement” by a Levi’s Fit Specialist, along with the extra bonuses of getting 25% off all Curve ID products and a Lucky Swag Bag with purchase of a pair of Levi’s Curve ID. Sounds good, right? Always have a challenging time finding the right pair of jeans that will do wonders for my flat ass, and at the same time, fit my tiny waist, so I’m pretty excited to get a custom fitting. Swing on by if you’re free!

There are a ton of ways to show your support, and whatever choice you make, choose to join the fight in finding the cure.

Earlier this week, Melanie and I took our parents to Las Vegas for their first visit.  Soaking up the 90+ degree weather was heavenly after walking through the frigid casinos.  Decided against pressing my (usually bad) luck at the tables and didn’t gamble.  Well, aside from letting my parents lose $2 on slots so they could say they gambled in Vegas.  TOO CUTE. 

Happy weekend wishes!
