Happy Birthday Mom :)

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

Today is my moms birthday. My mother is the best thing I have in my life and I would be eternally lost without her . She is a loving, caring , sweet, self-less, gorgeous person. She has always been there for me and has always put my needs before hers(even in times when I didnt deserve it) and I can never begin to express what that means to me. She deserves so much more than I can give her this year and i vow to make it up to her as soon as i can. So until then , we are celebrating the best we can. We went to dinner the other night with my aunt and that was a lovely dinner in a quaint little Italian Bistro and we really had a wonderful time,Today Mom and I went to get mani/pedi . It was nice mommy quality time and I got a nice long pedi so that was even better hahah...Tonight we are going to a nice dinner with some family and after we will have cake. I am one lucky girl to have such a wonderful Mom.....   Love you Mommy !!  
Here some pics of her and us..... (dont tell her i posted them...she'd kill me hahahaha)

GBE week 39- Do-Over

This weeks topic in the GBE(group blogging experience) is the topic "Do-Over" ... Many things came to mind when I heard this topic: The work choices I would have like to do over or the desire to spend more quality time with family or of course the relationship choices I would like to do over. But I don't want to focus on what cant be undone and dwell on it instead I have decided to pick a moment in time that I CAN actually re-do and I have now added it to my bucket list...I would love to re-visit Fiji and actually SWIM in the water this time. See I was lucky enough when I was 22 to have the chance(thanks to my work) to visit Fiji. It was a once in a lifetime trip where we flew half way around the world to visit the islands of Fiji...the same islands where Castaway and the blue lagoon were you can get a sense of the sheer beauty that was surrounding me. BUT one dark cloud loomed over my excitement of being in this tropical paradise and that dark cloud followed me all day and to the 5 islandz we went to ... the darkness had a name and that name was JAWS. I am terrified of sharks and I was currently in the south pacific ..the home of one of the most deadliest and probably the most famous shark known to man....THE GREAT WHITE. I tried to make my self feel better by asking the hotel employees about sharks and all of them said "oh no.. there's no sharks here...nothing to worry about" but I was just so scared that I spent most of my time in the water only up to around my ankles haha...but slowly I started to feel more and more comfortable until soon I was frolicking the water, swimming and snorkeling and enjoying the warm water sand all the tropical fish. The next morning I woke and I had a renewed outlook. I was going to head right for the beach and into that beautiful turquoises water but first I would swing by the buffet so I could grab some breakfast and fuel myself for my long day of swimming and snorkeling and water skiing. As I approached the restaurant with a big smile on my face when was I suddenly stopped dead in my tracks. On the wall ahead of me ,in Large Blue letters, written on the caulk daily activities board was words that would sent shivers of fear through my body. Glaring down at me as if they were in neon were the words that would ruin my day and those words were : 8:00 am SHARK DIVE ... I stood there in could there be a shark dive when I was told there were NO SHARKS in the area. My mind was racing but I tried to calm myself and rationalize it away by thinking and hoping the dive was miles away. Just then I saw someone returning to the water-sports hut with dive equipment ,I asked them politely and calmly if they had done the shark dive. They said they had and that it was awesome. I then asked them where it was, praying they said it was a hour boat ride away but instead the turned and pointed out off the beach and said "oh ..about maybe 500 feet out there" then they smiled and walked away as I stood there in amazement. Not only were there sharks but they were actually feeding them 500 feet from where I had been swimming and snorkeling. So needless to say that put a huge halt to my water activities ,instead I chose to swim in the pool and never went close to the water again. So that brings me back to the topic of the re-do. This would be my re-do wish. I wish I could return to Fiji..I would not squander this trip with extreme fears of being the victim of a shark attack , an attack that would rival that of the infamous shark attack scenes in Jaws. Instead I would swim and float and dive into the crystal warm waters of that paradise island and not let my fears limit me. I would re-do this in a heart beat...this time not caring about the finned devil swimming out in the distance but instead enjoy the tropical blue and green and yellow tropical fish that were much more interested in me. Maybe one day ill get that re-do :)
