“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

The Situation Room in Lego

Absolutely hilarious!  The iconic "Situation Room" photo has been presented in Lego!

I wonder how many people would've actually got this correctly if the answers had not been given.  A little mambo to make your day :-)

Long Weekend...

I had such an amazing time this weekend.  My very pregnant sister, Vicky, and her husband, Luther, came up on Thursday, and stayed through Sunday - which is why you didn't see me blogging as much - it was sporadic at best.  We had such a wonderful time, I had homemade enchiladas, charro beans and Spanish rice ready for them when they arrived; after dinner we sat and talked for a good while.  

My partner, Ryan arrived a little before dinner with some terrific news - he passed both his state and national tests for his Real Estate License.  He was extremely ecstatic, and so were we.

On Friday, I woke up and made homemade omelets for everybody, and we went out shopping.  Same thing on Saturday, I woke up and made biscuits, refried beans, potatoes, eggs and turkey bacon - we ate like pigs.  We went out to Babies 'R Us, and Baby's & Kid's 1st Furniture, where they ended up finding an awesome deal on a bedroom set for Liliana's bedroom.

While we were at Babies 'R Us, Ryan found a teddy bear for Liliana, and we bought it for her.  This will be her very first Teddy Bear!

After shopping on Saturday, we had dinner at Red Lobster, and headed home to rest.  We were all exhausted from a very long day, but we had so much fun.

Personally, I think time flew by too quickly, before we knew it, Sunday was already here.  Our friend Abbie, came over to wish Vicky and Luther the best on their pregnancy, and by 1 o'clock they were on their way back to Corpus Christi.  I shed a few tears after they left, but we will see them again at the end of July for their baby shower.

It was an eventful weekend I will never forget, and better yet, today is mine and Ryan's 6 year anniversary - which I will blog about later today.
