Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
until they forget that they are horses.
It's not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it's more like a song on a policeman's radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
to slice into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it's noon, that means
we're inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we'll never get used to it.

It's hard to believe the new year is just a couple days away. It feels as if this year has just flown by so quickly. The last few months have absolutely been the best months of the year for me. I have grown so much as a person, emotionally and mentally, and I just feel like a whole new woman. It is a wonderful feeling to start the new year off with such a optimistic and positive feeling towards life. 

That being said, I've decided to make 2011 my year. There are so many things I would love to accomplish and experience. So this is my 2011 list of goals && resolutions. I know that the chances of me accomplishing every thing on this list is a bit absurd, but at the very least I'd like to make an effort to try and work my way towards most of these. Baby steps, right?! :)

*Get Crafty. I would love to really start getting more crafty and get some cute, fun hobbies. Examples? Scrapbooking. I have so many boxes of pictures, not to count that thousands of pictures on my computer that need to be printed off. I'd love to learn to sew and make the girls cute little outfits and blankets and scarves. I'd also love to start making photo journals.

*Travel. I'm pretty excited about this one, since I have so many amazing trips planned in 2011. Phoenix next week, Vegas in may, a possible trip to the East Coast this summer to visit some friends. I'd LOVE to take a cruise as well, and I'm secretly planning on the most amazing mini vacation with Matt and this is one I'm most excited for, aside for next weekend of course! :)

*Buy a new car/truck. Pretty much speaks for itself.

*Get out && socialize! This is a pretty big one for me. I used to be a social butterfly and out and about going to concerts and art shows. Now, I find myself making excuses when friends ask me to hang out and I really want to make an effort to step out of my overly-comfortable zone and start going out and doing things again.

*Make new friends. I love meeting new people and would really love to make some more friends, especially younger moms. I have a close knit circle of friends, but the majority of them aren't parents and as cliche as it is, its really hard to relate to friends when they aren't parents themselves.

*Fall in love. Alright, so I don't necessarily mean run out and start looking for someone to fall in love with. But I think I'm at a point where my heart and mind are alot more open to the idea of meeting people and more optimistic when it comes to relationships, dating and love. I've become extremely selective when it comes to relationships/dating, I know what I want/am looking for and I just won't waste my time. But at the same time, I think I've definitely had a wall up in this area which makes it hard for me allow anyone to even get to a point of taking it to a level beyond friendship. So in 2011, I plan on, slowly and cautiously, opening my heart to the possibility of being in another relationship and if I'm lucky, even fall in love.  It's definitely looking good so far and I'm anxious/excited/nervous to see what 2011 will bring for me & this person.

*Make more of an effort to have "me" time. I have absolutely fallen into the typical stay at home mom look. I used to be SO into getting my hair & nails done, and doing my makeup and just being ultra feminine. Now, 90% of the time I'm rocking a ponytail, no makeup and jeans && a tee, or even pjs, all day. I cant remember the last time I was able to take a shower and get dressed and do my hair and makeup. I'm lucky if I can get a shower in before 11pm at night. True story. My days are SO busy taking care of kids that the last thing on my mind is to throw some makeup on or curl my hair and put on a nice dress. I definitely plan on making more of an effort to get out of this phase and get the old me back. I'm tired of looking in the mirror and thinking "wow, what the hell happened to you".

*Be more adventurous/spontaneous. This again pretty much speaks for itself. The past few years I've become alot less spontaneous(being a parent has a way of doing that to a person). I'd love to be more outgoing and adventurous this year and experience new things.

*Work out! This is a huge one for me! I would really love to start taking care of my body more and changing my eating habits, which have become pretty disgusting honestly. I would really love to start getting more into yoga & pilates, being more cautious about the things that I'm eating and cut out the junk food/caffeine that is my usual daily diet. My goal? Bikini body by summer baby!

*Finish my tattoos && maybe even start some new pieces. I absolutely plan on finishing my sleeves up this summer, maybe start tackling this back piece thats been in progress for...ever! I also have some new amazing ideas that I would love to get started, time && money permitting.

*Bake && cook more. Recently, baking and cooking have become 2 things I've really gotten into and actually enjoy doing. So I would love to try at least 2-4 new recipes a month this year.

*Photo Blog. I've attempted to start a 365 the past couple of years and always end up not following through. This year, I am determined to see it through. So, not only will I start a 365 photo blog on this blog, but I plan on doing a self portrait 365 as well. I think it'd be really fun to see how much I change from day 1 to day 365 :) 
*Start attending church regularly. I am really looking forward to this one. I've really opened my heart and mind to God this year and it has done some incredibly amazing things for my spirituality and my whole attitude towards life in general. I want to step it up a notch and start attending my church alot more regularly and really get the girls involved in it as well.

*School. I've hit a mini road block on this one, but its only a small detour and I am determined to start nursing school this year and begin the steps towards a career. I am SO excited and ready, you have no idea. 

*Focus on my photography. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVEEEE taking pictures. I always have a camera in hand, whether its my DSLR, a point and shoot or even a camera phone. Photography has always been a huge passion of mine but its mostly been a hobby, a creative outlet for myself. I really want to take it to the next level this year and start portfolio building and stepping into a more business-mindset and seeing where that takes me. I have so many people encouraging me and it is so wonderful to have such supportive friends & family as I venture into this. 

*Be the best mother I can be. I would really love to start doing alot more things with the girls, as they get older, I feel like time gets shorter and shorter in the days. So I really want to take more time to do things with each of the girls individually as well as a family, more camping trips && family outings, like sporting events or musicals or whatever their hearts desire. I want to make this year a year full of amazing, loving fun family memories for us and I cannot WAIT to start planning these things!

*Be more patient. This is definitely something I really want/need to work on this year. Despite the fact that I'm a mother and that has a way of forcing you to be a patient person, I know that I am really impatient in almost all aspects of my life. I get overly frustrated/irritated/aggravated with people/things easily and I really want to find healthier outlets, like being able to just take a step back and take a deep breath before flipping out over shit.

*Move out of Sacramento. Enough said. Preferably to So-Cal or the Bay Area.

&& lastly.

*Be more open to mending broken relationships/friendships. I want to start the new year off on a clean, positive slate. For this to happen, I really want to reach out and fix some of my less than positive/healthy relationships with certain people in my life and make an effort to work out our issues. 

So, thats the list. I really hope come this time next year, I'll be able to check the majority of these off ! I have never been so excited, so anxious and so motivated. I'm changing my life, day by day, and gosh does it feel amazing.

Merry Christmas to all my beautiful friends && family! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas <3

Christmas was really rough this year for me. I've never been a huge Christmassy kind of person in general, but this year was exceptionally shitty since it was the first year of celebrating it single and not having my girls with me. We celebrated last night & early this morning before they went to their dads for the weekend. I thought I had prepared myself emotionally the last few weeks, but I'm not sure you can really prepare yourself for that. I am beyond thankful and grateful for my amazing friends && family who smothered me in love && support today. I know without them I would have been an absolute mess.
Despite that, the girls && I had a ridiculously fun time opening presents. There is nothing more amazing than seeing your childs face light up as they unwrap gifts. I love love love it. We ate a ton of fudge && cookies. Built gingerbread houses and played board games until midnight.  It was a perfect Christmas Eve && morning.

I hope next year will be so much different.

Life is so fantastically wonderfully amazing lately. I couldn't have prayed to start the new year off any better than this.  I ask myself all the time how I got this lucky, but maybe I've been lucky all along and just never truly realized it until now. Either way, I have never been happier and I don't want the feeling to ever end.

I've been really thinking hard about school && what I want to do with my life. It is SO hard, I envy people who just "know" what they want to do. I change my mind so often, constantly second guess my self. I think I have it figured out. So, my plan is to get my CNA certification by april/may. Its a 7 week course. I need it to be able to get into the nursing program at the school I want to go too and then get my RN. THEN, get a job at a hospital, but go back to school to become a Radiological Technician/Ultrasound Sonographer. Theres NO accredited schools for that program in Sacramento, theres only 7 in the state of California, and they are all in Southern California except for 1, so that means I'll definitely be moving there to finish school.It feels SO fucking good to have it figured out, have a game plan && direction and know I can put all my focus into getting things finished and my career/life started. Yay for me. I would love to be able to eventually go to cosmetology school just to do it, because its always something I've WANTED to do, so maybe I can fit that in somewhere along the way. 

Sunday I went and saw my beautiful(and best) friend Brie in the hospital. She was induced and gave birth to the most gorgeous baby girl, Taylin Monroe. I was so proud of her, she was not only absolutely gorgeous for being in labor, but was handeling it like a total champ! Way better than me :)
Congrats love, I love you both so so much!!

The girls are on Christmas break from school for the next 2 weeks. Our days are spent with play dates/sleep overs, rock band, arts && crafts and just over-all goofing off and playing. It has been so much fun and some amazing quality time. I love love it. Being a mom is seriously the best thing in this world.

I have been debating what to do for New Years for a few weeks. A bunch of my friends are going to Tahoe and that sounded hella fun. But then, my grandma came by about 3 days ago and asked me and my brother to please stay home because all she does it sit up all night and worry about us. GUILT TRIP GALORE. I know she does worry and now I know I can't go out because I'd feel like shit all night knowing my poor 80 year old grandma is sitting at home watching CNN stressing on where I am and if I'm okay. So, my brother and I promised her we'd stay home, and invited her, my mom, my little sister Summer and a couple friends to come over to our house for the night. Buy some alcohol and cider for the girls, get some pizza and sushi, play some poker and board games, whatever, just make it a chill night. Probably not as cool as Tahoe would have been, but I love my grandma too much to say no. 

Just a little over 2 weeks until my mini vacation to Phoenix. I am so excited I could burst into little pieces. I can't remember the last time I looked forward to something so much.

Recently,  I have really gotten into horoscopes/signs.  Mainly thanks to my daddy, who has always encouraged me to read into it, while I laughed and called it hocus pocus. He religiously emails me my horscope and I just started really getting into it.
And was seriously amazed...and slightly creeped out....
by how accurate and even dead on it is most days. 

Anyways, I randomly came across this earlier today and am totally weirded out about how absolutely accurate it is. This describes me to an absolute "T". Literally. Every single word.

Traits of a Taurus Woman

Emotional Strength

The female Taurus is very emotionally powerful and can handle huge amounts of stress. That stress may come from her job, her family, or herself, but she seldom crumbles under pressure, and she usually won't even complain or show any signs of being upset. She prefers to avoid looking for sympathy and she will instead rely on her independence and fortitude to get through a stressful situation. It's best not to push her, though—if she is deliberately provoked beyond her stress limits, she'll react by becoming very angry.


Independence is one of the most well known traits of a Taurus woman. She knows how to get things done herself and certainly isn't afraid to take on a new project or lead others. She often prefers to work on her own rather than in a group. A Taurus woman is assertive when she needs to be, but she doesn't mind when someone else takes the lead, especially her partner in a romantic relationship.


A typical Taurus woman is quite loyal. Though she may have many friends and acquaintances, she'll grant her loyalty to only a few, and she'll expect the same thing in return. She's always ready to provide support or guidance to those few, and she'll be easily disappointed if she doesn't get the same in return. Taurus women are choosy when selecting romantic partners, and it may take them a while to find someone to whom they'll commit, but once they do, they'll be very devoted.


Many wouldn't guess that Taurus women are naturally introverts, since they don't hesitate to take on leadership roles and they have no problem with going after what they want. However, the Taurus female needs time alone to recharge after being with a large group or socializing at a big event. She loves planning her own schedule and choosing how she perceives the things around her, which she's more easily able to do on her own. Her internal life is very active, and you won't be privy to many of her thoughts unless she's close to you.

Artistic Flare

Nature and aesthetic beauty are very important to a Taurus woman. She enjoys being outside and looking for beautiful views or places that are particularly camera-friendly. Generally, she's happiest in an artistic space or when she can surround herself with objects that she finds pleasing to look at.


Putting up with artifice, facades, or false impressions isn't tolerable for a Taurus woman. She wants people to present themselves as they truly are, and she'll quickly grow weary of those who dance around issues or try to shape her perceptions of reality. You can expect a female Taurus to always be honest about who she is and what she wants, and she'll leave a first impression that proves to be representative of her true personality.


It's rare for a Taurus woman to become so upset that she loses her temper, but when she does, it's not easily forgotten. Chances are, she's put up with a lot of stress before reaching a breaking point, so her outbursts are intense. She can be very stubborn about the points she makes and won't budge on her views unless she's given a very good reason to change them.

  • Tomboyish
Though Taurus women have no reservations about expressing their femininity and choosing feminine styles, they're often tomboys at heart who are happy to participate in activities that are mostly male-dominated.
  • Passive-Aggressive
In conflicts, Taurus women may not be up front about what they feel the real problem is. Instead of starting an argument, they might ignore the offenders or simply treat them with indifference.
  • Intelligent
They're not always brainy or nerdy about their smarts, but Taurus women know a lot and are practical about applying their knowledge.
  • Good Mother
A Taurus woman is an extremely caring and successful mother. She won't stand for disobedience in her children, and that's part of the reason they often grow up to be polite and agreeable.
  • Good with Finances
Taurus women are smart with money and know how to distribute their funds and handle them successfully, making them well suited for career choices such as brokers and accountants.

So Mayson has the most adorable ritual. EVERY morning she wakes up, climbs out of bed, comes into my room and climbs into bed with me, and we'll just lay there and snuggle, sometimes fall back asleep. It is the best. I live for those moments and I look forward to it every morning. I totally love it. She is such a sweet, beautiful little girl.

Totally loving the morning hair here :)

The girls and I have "art" night 2-3 times a week. We do different craft projects or simply just sit together and color and draw. It is SO fun and if you dont do this, you should!!! The girls are SO artistic, and I know "every" parent says/thinks that, but I really think they are. Anyways, so last night we all just sat around the table coloring and drawing whatever we wanted. It was so much fun! Afterwards, my brother and I taught them how to make cootie catchers. They thought they were the COOLEST thing on the block haha it was so cute. It brought back alot of memories from when we were little kids and we had a blast teaching them how to make them and the girls were SO excited to take them to school today to show all thier friends!

Summer, my little sister for my new friends, called me this morning and we talked for like an hour and a half. It was love. I seriously adore our relationship so much. I am so thankful that we are as close as we are, and that we can talk and have such an open communication. She doesnt have any good parental role models and I know she really looks up to me, she is TOTALLY a miniature version of myself, and its such a good feeling to be there for her and try to guide her to make good decisions. I fucking love her to pieces.

Angelyna && Ciarra are such sneaky little girls. They have been conspiring behind my back for at least a week with their BFFS to plan sleepovers during Christmas break. Its cute because Angelynas best friend is Jovanna, and Ciarras best friend is Alondra, and Jovanna && Alondra are sisters too. Their mom is the sweetest person, she's my age and we totally clicked the first time we met. So last night Angelyna was on the phone, like she is everytime I turn around(hello pre-teen years!!) and she was like Oh hey, my mom wants to talk to you. So I get on the phone and I overhear Jovanna saying "mom, Nica wants to talk to you". HMMMMMMM.She gets on the phone and I'm like hey, I think the girls are upto something since Angelyna just told ME you wanted to talk to me lol Low and behold, they had planned sleepovers without even asking us if it was okay. They are ALWAYS doing things like that, planning sleepovers or outtings and then I dont find out until the DAY OF, and I'm like wtf! Haha. I remember those days :)
So anyways, tomorrow is the last day of school for Christmas Break and we worked it out so that monday night the girls will go over to her house for a sleep over, and then wednesday they'll come over here for a sleep over. Lord help me!!!

The other day I bought a dark chocolate brown hair dye and a bright red hair dye. They are both sitting in my bathroom, calling my name. I really like the color it is now, but my roots are growing in and I really dont have time or the extra cash thanks to the holidays to pay $200 to have it touched up. I am SO torn on what to do. I honestly miss it black, but damn it was SO hard to strip out of my hair. I'm scared to even dye it at all because I know its damaged from the stripping, but I don't want to rock the roots when I go to Phoenix next month either. Sometimes it is SO hard being a girl. 

The other day I tried out a new recipe I found online. Thats sort of my new thing. I really want to learn to be a better baker/cook(er?) so I'm constantly googling recipes that wont take 7847 hours to cook and are fairly easy to make, as I am only a beginner. I found a recipe for coconut pecan brownies. OMG. I was already in lust. And let me tell you, they were SO freaking easy to make, and it was like heaven in your mouth. No joke. They were GONE by the end of the night! So so good.

One of my very close friends is having her 2nd daughter this sunday and she invited me to be with her during the labor & delivery. I am so honored, and so thrilled. I cannot wait to meet Miss Taylin. Its been almost 2 years since Ive held a newborn and I totally miss it. I'm going to be baby lusting for weeks afterwards, I already know. Thank God this factory is closed for business. Permanently.

Anyways, I suppose thats all for now.

Ps; I totally revamped my blog and I totally adore it! It is so "me".

I dont really have much to say! My life is pretttty unexciting for the most part, haha.The girls go on Christmas break soon. This is my scared face. 2 whole weeks. I have no idea how I'm going to keep them all entertained.

Stormie recently came to me and asked if I'd buy her a guitar. She LOVES music. I'm serious. This kid will sit here for HOURS and listen to music on youtube, watch music videos on tv over cartoons or movies. She loves to dance and sing. And now has decided she'd like to learn to play. So, I'm going to make that happen. I dont know anything about guitars, but I figure if I just go into a music shop they can help me figure it out. And find some local lessons for her to do. 

Angelyna has been drawing alot herself. When I was going through her binder at school, I noticed TONS of doodles all over, very cartoon-ish looking and actually pretty good. I have no idea how my kids got these artistic abilities, but I seriously love it. I'm not artistic, AT ALL but I totally wish I was, so its rad to see the girls being able to be artistically creative.

Anyways, I'll leave you with pictures for now, because who doesnt love pictures?! What can I say, my girls love the camera :)

Sorry Dad!! This ones for you :) I promise to start updating more frequently, girl scouts honor. This may get long.


I look at this picture and it totally breaks my heart. I feel like yesterday she was a squishy newborn baby and now shes 9 going on 15. She is so beautiful and so intelligent. She gets A's and B's, and recently received an award at school for having the highest test scores in English/Language Arts in her grade for the California STAR testing. I have NO idea where she obtained this intellect, certainly not from me OR her father(hey, I'm just sayin! She definetly inheritied it from you dad!) but I am so grateful for it. She loves school and learning new things. She wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up and she's certainly on the right path.
She is the biggest tomboy ever. Now that I definetly know she got from her mama! This girl refuses to wear pink, and will rock a t-shirt, holed up jeans and a pair of vans before ever stepping foot into a dress. She'll trade the barbies and playing dress up for a book about fairytales or mythical things; think dungeons and dragons and unicorns and mermaids or a good ol' video game.
Angelyna is my best friend. We have such a great relationship and she's so open to talking to me about anything and everything, even the most uncomfortable of subjects, but I am thrilled that we're able to have that open line of communication. She has such a good head on her shoulders and always makes good decisions for herself, even when the peer pressure is being packed on. I envy her courage to stand up for herself and her beliefs at such a young age and not caring about what everyone else is doing or whats "cool".


Oh, Ciarra. I think this picture says it all. If I had to think of one word to describe her, the first word that pops into my head is D-I-V-A. This girl has spunk and attitude and style for days. She is the complete opposite of Angelyna in everyway possible. She is all about dressing up in dresses and heels and all the accessories. She picks her OWN clothes because she knows what she likes and I dont have the "right" style. Her words. Real talk. Ouch. She loves flipping through fashion magazines and getting manis and pedis.
Unfortanetly, Ciarra does not have the same attitude towards school that Angelyna does. For her, school is all about socializing. She is popular and she loves every second of it. Her career goal? So You Think You Can Dance. True story.
Ciarra is very outspoken. She will not hesitate to tell you exactly how she feels about something or someone, wether you want to hear it or not. Oh, and she is ALWAYS right. Always. And will argue with you about it until she is blue in the face. She is extremely protective of her sisters. She is a definitely a leader. She has the biggest heart and amazing music taste(now THAT I will take credit for.....haha)


 Stormie is the most sweetest, beautiful little girl && the only one of my daughters to look anything like me! In fact, she's pretty much my clone but a way prettier version. She has a smile that will light up the darkest room. She has a heart of gold. She loves to sing and dance. ALOT. You can always find her singing and dancing away, its so adorable. She is obsessed with Miley Cyrus(WHYYYYYY?! haha). She pretty much always has the microphone on Rockband lol She loves to play computer games, she pretty much lives on barbie.com and girlgames.com.
She is a really independent little girl. She is totally content in finding things to entertain herself with, by herself, which I adore. She is a total daydreamer. Shes a girly girl and loves to dress up, just like her big sister Ci!
She's in the 1st grade now and loves school, not so much the homework part.
She is really outgoing and loves attention. She's the cuddlebug and is always telling me how much she loves me or curling up on the couch with me to watch a Disney princess movie((our favorites)).

Aka "The Hurricane".

Rylan is one of a kind. She is the most amazing little girl I have ever known. She is SO freaking smart, it blows your mind the things she says and knows. She has always been really advanced for her age, and while that IS awesome, it can also be a recipe for disaster. My family && I call her "The Hurricane" because it takes this girl 10 minutes to destory the house. She has no attention span whatsoever and so she finds ways to entertain herself, which usually involves doing things she KNOWS she isnt supposed to do. 
She is HILARIOUS. She says the most off the wall things and keeps me laughing all day long. She is strong willed. And insanely gorgeous(Shaynes clone, huh dad!!). She loves, LOVES art. She is so creative and its one of the things I adore most about her. On the downside, she has a tendancy to draw on anything and everything, and my once white walls are now scribbled with her drawings of monsters and flowers and self portraits.
Its hard to believe she'll start school this summer, time has flown by so fast.
And I am SO excited that her hair is finally growing back after the HORRIBLE clippers episode. For those who dont know, my brother left his hair clippers on the bathroom counter and Rylan decided it would be a fantastic idea to use them on HER hair. Thank GOD she wasnt hurt, but unfortanetly, the majority of her hair did not survive the incident. Which is so sad since she had the most beautiful, goldilocks blonde curls.

AKA Macy.

 My baby. Mayson is youre DREAM child. She is so perfect. She is the most laid back, chill little girl. She rarely ever cries or fusses or whines. She is ALWAYS smiling and laughing. She talks a mile a minute, although you can only catch about every other word.
This baby girl LOVES music. She dances her little butt away all day and night. And shes got moves, let me tell you!
Mayson is the light of my life. Maybe thats because she's my last child so theres that "special" connection between us. I could cuddle and hold her and squeeze her forever. Shes my nighttime cuddly buddy, yes, I co-sleep still!
She is so gorgeous! She has the most amazing eyes. Her left one has this huge brown freckle in it, its so unique. Its funny because she doesnt look like me or her dad, but moreso a combination of all her sisters put together.

&& me.

Life has been good. Really good, for the most part. I feel like I finally have some peace in my previously normally chaotic life, and its been refreshing. Not to say I dont have those days every now and then :)

I need to go to the doctor pretty soon. I'm pretty sure my anemia is, once again, out of control. I increased my iron intake almost triple the amount, but the disgusting, massive bruises are back and I know that means its time a for a trip back to the doctor. I wish I could use not having time as an excuse, but really, I'm just scared and dont want to deal with it. Oh dad, I can totally see your angry/worried face right now!! Dont worry, I'll do it. Soon. I just cant afford to be sick and deal with that shit.

The new year is here and I'm pretty excited about it!! I'm going to attempt to test the waters of the job market because I am so over being broke all the time. I have to sign up for school again here pretty soon. It'll be nice to be able to get out of the house everyday and socialize. And of course make steps towards doing something productive with my life. I'm going to Phoenix next month to see my amazing friend Matt. I am seriously counting down the days. Then in May, 2 of my favorite people are tying the knot in Vegas, on my birthday weekend, hey heyy!! That will be LOVE. So many good things to look forward to in 2011 and I am so ready for it.

Anyways, my eyes hurt from staring at this screen for so long so I'm going to curl up and watch Inception and then finish my book.

Speaking of, if you haven't read it, you must. Its a poetry book, so you have to like poetry, obviously, but it is AMAZING. I've probably read it a billion times, but I never grow tired of it.
