Fun in the Sun

Ok, It is Spring Break for us right now! YAY! I was planning to do something EVERY day but guess what? We are sick! Head colds are the worse. The twins are sick, Mimi is sick and Me too:(

We went to Busch Gardens and a Yankees vs. Red Sox game... But that was about it. Baseball Season is starting up so I am busy with DJ. We spend a lot of time at the field and I love it. I am actually, "TEAM MOM" Can you believe it? I am so excited about it.

The Twins are now 6 months old! I am loving them more and more everyday.

My sweet Mimi is now 9 years old. It breaks my heart that I do not have friends... Not many people showed up to the B-Day party... Her class mates did though. Next time I will not plan a party at a venue the beginning weekend of Spring Break. (NOTED)

DJ is growing up so fast. I love to see him playing ball and being excited about it.

Gustavo is making me proud with awesome ideas. He is building up his business and helping me with the twins. He really impresses me with the care he is showing the babies.

That is the update on me... And my life. I promise, I will do better and write more! In a way, I kinda wish I was anonymous... That way I could really say and write what I want... But sometimes that is no good either. I never want people to think that I am fake.

I do not have pictures on this computer so I will try to post some later.

XOXOX- ~A

Banegas Babies

I have not blogged in a LONG time! I have a great excuse though!
We are pregnant!

We are having TWINS!

I will tell you that SO FAR this pregnancy has been very difficult! I have been SUPER sick! But… The babies are doing fine!

There is a picture of our Banegas Bundles!!!
I am thinking about blogging this adventure… But I am not too sure yet! I know I miss blogging and I have to do something because if not… I will go CRAZY! This is the BIGGEST thing going on in my life! The kids are excited!

Leggo my Eggos

Here is a run down on my Egg Retrieval.


video

We woke up at 0700 to take a couple of pills that are supposed to help with nausea!
We got to the doctor around 0820 and had to fill out a couple papers and what not.
Then I was told to go and sit in an L shaped room. I was told to remove my clothes and put on a gown. I am not modest (Thank You US Army) but the Arab women in there with me, surely were. I felt a bit out of place.
I was the 3rd person up. I was told to tinkle... Then I went into the retrieval room. A man stuck his head thru a window and said, "Amber"... I said, "Yes Sir" I was laying down and then given meds. I also had oxygen or gas over my face. I clearly was having a hard time falling to sleep because everyone was looking at me and waiting. This time I actually got to see the doctor.
I woke up in a LOT of pain. I was moved to my room and Gustavo was there waiting for me. (Thank You Baby!!!) I was having a lot of pain. Gustavo had a nurse come and give me some pain shot. It really didn't help though. I felt like I was going to vomit, and I did. Many times! (I hate Propofol!)
The doctor came and told me that they got 27 eggs! 15 from one ovary and 12 from another!!!
(I think that was a GREAT number!!!) No wonder I was in so much pain! I was given Endometrin to take 3 times a day and Folic Acid as well. (Endometrin is a vaginal tablet!)
I have to take them at 6, 2 and 10! Daily! I am not sure how long I will have to take them!
 I was anxious to leave so I went with Gustavo to give his sample. When I got to that office, I got sick again.
We finally got in the car! Gustavo got me 7 UP and then HOMEWARD bound. We left around 1230.
 I ate some saltine crackers and drank 7 Up! Now I feel a lot better.
If I get pregnant...
Our due date will be 17 JULY 2014
If we get TWINS: 25 JUNE 2014

Going SOUTH

As some of my dearest readers may remember... Gustavo and I built a house. We were COMPLETELY in love with the house and PICKED everything... Long story short, after many missed deadlines and an unsightly tree...

We decided that we no longer wanted the house.
My heart was BROKEN! I had everything shipped and ready to move in...

THEN- We found a second house that honestly, was not everything we wanted... But it was ok. In the end, Gustavo talked me out of that house too! (Thanks Babe!!! Good Call!!!)

I am getting closer to the DIRTY THIRTY and I am feeling the need to SETTLE. I am looking for the 3 S's (Safety, Security, Stability)

One thing that I love about Gustavo is that he is like me as far as adventure, travel and taking the easier but not so traveled road!

We have NO intention of returning to AMERICA. Not to live.

We are setting our sites SOUTH of the border to Central America!


Most people just look at us like we are crazy when we tell them that we are going to Nicaragua; but heck, we are used to those looks!


Here are our main reasons:

1. Low cost of living: 1 USD to 24.40 Nicaragua cordoba









2. Low MURDER rate (13:100,000) Steady for 5 years:)

3. Beautiful weather, cheap medical and a fresh start!

Distance

Distance and Time are two very harsh words in a relationship. Long Distance Relationships are difficult. Communication is KEY. As I am learning!!!

GOOGLE is helping a lot with some great ideas and insight from others who are in the same situation or who have been in the same situation.

I went through my phone and I saw some old pictures... So- I figured I would post them!
I love this man because he treats me like a QUEEN. He listens and he respects me. The thing that I miss the most about him... his KISSES!!!

 We are such a cute couple... I know:)
These are the MEN in my life... DJ has taken his role as "MAN of the house" very serious!

This girl is crazy for her Daddy!!!

My sister baked some cupcakes that looked SUPER yummy so I decided to try them out!

She failed to mention how STICKY the frosting would be! LOL. And I forgot the chocolate chips :( But all in all... they were GREATNESS!!!

Banana Split Cupcakes!!!

I made this one for Gustavo... It has a heart...

Noodle Factory

Ms. Drama for your Mama Mimi Maye!
The Noodle Factory (The Avenues Mall)
The Menu

The Plate and the outline mat is cute!

Mim's Tea... And a mint Leaf!



This is how you can turn ANY pair of chop sticks into a pair that your kids can use! They really thought they were doing something! LOL
All in all I will say that the Noodle Factory is ok. No free re-fills:( And they messed up my order. But every where I go my order is messed up! They did replace my food quickly though! I was super hungry! Gustavo is getting better about trying new foods! I like that he is willing. I really think the only reason that he does it is because the kids are there watching! LOL He said he would eat there again so I am sure that he liked it! If they are happy, so am I!
