My Grandma


It's been slightly over 4 years since my paternal grandmother passed away with complications from Alzheimer's.  She always had high hopes for me and believed in everything that I ever set my heart out to accomplish.  I have felt as though she's been watching over me these last few months and cheering me on with my exciting journey through life. 



Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and soon-to-be mothers out there! And especially a big happy mother's day to my own mama, Sandra!




Family Visit to Philly!

My cousin and my grandpa arrived in Philly on Sunday morning.  We went on a boat ride on the Delaware River on the Spirit of Philadelphia.  I had always been curious about this boat, but it’s even cheesier than I ever imagined it to be.  Picture wedding dance party with cheese dance songs on a cruise and that would be it.  Nevertheless, the food was good and we saw as much of the Delaware River as you really could see.  I mean, let’s face it: there isn’t much. 


We celebrated Heather’s birthday!


In the evening, we went to a Phillies game.  It was the first MLB baseball game for my cousin, the first one that my grandpa had been to in a while, and it’s the first time that I got to go to a Phillies game and sit in the 6th row!  We were right by third base and it was awesome!  Our tickets were expensive, but we had a good time.  And since it was my cousin’s birthday, someone came to the seat to bring her a card and the whole section around us sang happy birthday to her while having confetti thrown on her.  It was nothing short of awesome!


None of us really slept well, but we were troopers and woke up early enough to catch a ride on one of those Big Bus tours around the city.  The tour is great if you have a good seat, but I don’t recommend sitting in the back.  We had stopped off at City Hall to take a trip to the tower, which is something that I hadn’t done in years.  The weather was perfect for a great view of the city.  We finished off the day with a lunch at Sabrina’s.
