I'm so glad I came back! During the day I am exhausted with work, school (taking 2 summer college courses!), my parents, life....etc...but as soon as I hit play on those p90x dvds... i am pumped and ready to get sweaty and work my butt off! I hope this lasts... forever!
ANyway...Thanks for all the support. Guess what.. I am planning my next ink adventure. Some of you may know, I got 3 tattoos. I love them, I can just get my whole back covered, if I had the guts to lol, it hurts. But anyway... I've decided on 2 designs that I will get. One is a nautical star. My cousins and I are getting a star to represent our family. Our family fishes and takes vacations to the ocean ever since my Grandpa was alive and took my dad and uncles when they were kids. Every since then, we all go. We love it. We love the sun, the water, the salt lol, sleeping in tents, not having a bathroom lol. So we decided to get a nautical star tattoo. I already got the design semi planned out. I think I will get it on my lower back...but on my left side... kind of below the jean line...but not too close to the butt.. lol if that explains anything! maybe this will be my "private" tattoo..who knows...
Tattoo #2....I am a baker you guys know that. It's my passion, and hopefully something I will do for the rest of my life. Something I can fully make a living out of. (I might have great news about this soon! It's still not sure so I wont jinx myself!). ANyway...a cupcake tattoo. yup... a cupcake tattoo. I think I might do it as a cover up for a not so great wrist tattoo or put it at the back of my neck. I just know I need to get this. It's totally me. Ok...enough... Im way to excited about this! I'm posting the designs I like so far. I'm will personalize them a bit once the day comes but here is a "rough draft" of the tat's coming up for me!

Yup, that is how I feel. I'm reaching and getting on that wagon.
As some of you are aware, I've been dealing with stress in regards to my parents. They are both sick, my dad had to be taken to the hospital twice last week. It's been tough on me. I am a very serious, non-emotion showing type of person. WHich is worse, because I am completely worried/sad and upset but I just "act" strong to others. So, it's been really stressful lately. And I need something to get myself into my zone again.
I'm getting back on that wagon, my friends. I need it now more than anything, even though I do want to lose those 10 extra lbs I got to lose to reach my goal weight, I want to workout to keep my sanity in check.
I haven't done too much decorating lately, but I will be doing 2 wedding in October (official!) and I got 2 major events that are a maybe ! HEre is a cake I did for my cousin's MIL this last month. It was a Red Velvet cake with Buttercream....
Hopefully I can post more of my creations soon. I got some cake "dummies" to practice on.
Hey, we have VIDEO BLOGS now?!? that is so cool.... I would be very nervous in front of a camera, but maybe I will try it soon.
Thanks to Ana and Java for alwasy beign there...

I have come to the conclusion that I need vitamins! I got sick....again! It seems like it was just yesterday that I got sick!
I started feeling my throat hurting on friday...by Saturday it was really bad....Sunday....fever... Finally I decided to take some stronger meds so I sent my hubby across the border to get me something. So I started taking 2 kinds of meds. I was in pain, my whole body was in pain. My back, my arms, my hands....everything was hurting. With the meds my throat quickly responded. I could eat and I wasn't in such pain. I still had a cough though.
I was what seemed to be getting better only one thing, I had these terrible headaches. My sinus were congested but really bad. I didn't have a runny nose but it was so congested that my forehead, cheeks and nose hurt. I started getting really bad headaches. It seemed too much for me. I mean it has been so many days and this seemed to be getting worse. If I turned my head fast or any sudden movement caused me to go into complete dizziness. My world would go black, I had to hold on to stuff so I wouldn't fall.
Today I was laying on the couch and I realized this wasn't going away, it was getting worse. So I confronted my fear of doctors and told my hubby to please take me to one. We crossed the border and found a doctor (I don't have medical insurance so I cross the border for more affordable care). Turns out the doctor was a friend of my hubby, they went to high school together (hubby was born in california when he was old enough to start school, his dad decided to move the family back to mexico. He wanted his kids to have an better education in Mexico, which is really good by the way. Don't believe the media that says it's bad in Mexico, they are very strict and teach a whole lot more stuff than here. Anyway...they moved back to the US when they were out of high school and started college here. Back to me->) So the doctor treated me really good and guess what? I have a Sinusitis...a SEVERE Sinus infection!
He prescribed 1 antibiotic+ 2 more kinds of meds in addition to the 2 I was taking already. I am on a 10 day treatment and he said I should be okay after the treatment. If symptoms continue he will have to give me a much stronger antibiotic but he thinks it wont be necessary.
So here I am... on 5 different medication, no energy, head feels like its going to explode, and my eyes feel like they are just going to pop out of my head. I really wanted to start once again with my routine but was you can imagine, I can't. I have no strength, everything hurts....Hopefully I start feeling better soon. I just took the first dose of all the medication.
Wish me luck my friends. From now on I am not waiting so long to go to a doctor.
Thanks Sparkfriends....hope everyone is all right and I'm sorry If I haven't responded to your comments, I've been in severe pain.
See you all soon, I hope!
