No New Friends

Let me tell you about the friends I got! I can really count them on my hands. These are the woman that I most important to me... This is not in any order and I didn't put their real names because the nicknames I gave them are special...

1. Tiner Tot- She is relation... More like a sister. She helped raise me even though she isn't much older than me. She is a Super Woman to me! An inspiration to me. She is selfless and always available. I enjoy talking to her EVERY day. (Known her my whole life)

2. Cathy (Pink n Blue)- I have known her since 5th grade. We evolved together. From sharing lockers and doing hair to clubbing and then to motherhood. I can call her and tell her anything... And not feel bad. She likes her space and I don't mind. (Going on 20 years)

3. Shak- This lady was a co-worker. Everyone expected us to hate each other since we were both so strong minded... But the opposite happened. I spent a lot of time with her in Iraq after work. I haven't seen her in a long time but I sure do miss her and she still holds the title! (Almost 10 years)

4. Moni-  met her on the internet... Not in a freaky way but I was looking to lease an apartment at the complex she worked for. Things fell into place and we became instant friends. (7 years)

5. Yanny- We met when we were pregnant. She was having a boy and I was having Mimi. We were due around the same time. Her brother was my next door neighbor. I talk to her weekly and when we get together, time just flies. I love spending time with her. She is well versed in the Bible and cooking. (10 years)

6. Gabba- She is my newest addition... She is real, she is raw... She is loyal. I like that we are honest with each other. I do not judge her and she doesn't judge me. I can be myself and say crazy things without thinking. I like that.
(Our friendship is 3 years new)

7. My Demanding Dominican!- I used to work with her and do her hair. We always ended up at the same places. It is funny because we are a lot alike but so much different. I think I get to see a side of her that not many other people get to see. She rattles my cage and I rattle hers too. I give it to her straight and she does the same for me. I like that. (6 years)

Now- Understand that none of my friends live too close... So what to do? How do you find quality friends in your 30's? I am still feeling my way around the idea. I will continue trying to figure it out.

Seems like more and more Gustavo is becoming my MVP... He is getting better at being my husband and the man that I need him to be. That is only making me love him again. I guess our life has been a novela but thankfully it's starting to get to the good parts.

Naruto

Below you will see how we ended up with a CAT! Now, If you are a parent, you already know that kids NEVER forget when you make a promise or a deal with them.
Daddy made a deal with Domiyana... "If you start reading, you can get a KITTEN"

 STEP 1: Tell Daddy you have to tell him something... 
 STEP 2: "Don't say anything"
 STEP 3: Remind Daddy about the deal
 (NOTE: Dad's expression)
 STEP 4: She already knows she won! See their faces?

RESULT: Domiyana: 1 DAD: 0
 Meet Naruto!
DJ had a moment at the Friday Market. He started crying seeing how the animals were treated. It is a sad sight to see starving dogs. I told him that at least we saved ONE animal. I love that he has such a Golden Heart!
 Welcome
 Dj playing with the kitten!
 Welcome Home
 Isn't he cute?
 COMPLETELY Spoiled! The cat thinks he is a BIRD!

 Always sleeping!
Knocked out! 
This cat is SERIOUSLY spoiled! I really never thought too much about having a cat... But actually... It isn't too bad! They are easily potty trained! We have not had ANY accidents.
He wants to be held all the time and Mims treats it like a BABY! It is fitting in PERFECTLY.
THe cat got the name NARUTO because on the stripes on his face!

Red Hair

I have been slacking on blogging lately!

I felt so BUMMED because my MACBOOK PRO crashed... So I lost ALL of my pictures! What fun is blogging without pictures?    NONE!

I have changed my hair color... I went to red. I wasn't sure if red would work with the different color lipsticks that I grew to love... But I decided it was time for a change. Honestly- Being blond(ish) is great because I do think that you can wear whatever color lipstick that you want... But... Change is always good.  I went to a hole in the wall place... And I loved the hair cut that I received!!! The color is great too! I know red will always fade! But we shall see what comes of it. The salon is Salon Montana. It is on Exit 211. The lady's name was Selma. Here it is!!!
