This weekend was full of TLC, heart-warming moments, and yes of course SOME BEER, so let's break it down!
Friday: A little TLC
Right after work I booked it to my "happy place" Chloe's Nail Spa ! I sat in my favorite chair with my favorite person, Fabi! She has been doing my nails for well over a year now and she has become a close friend of mine. I honestly look forward to seeing her, catching up, and picking my next set of claws! As you know Valentine's Day is right around the corner so I went for a Cardi B DRAMATIC PINK and girl let me tell you... Fabi delivered!
All the chisme had me hungry so I headed to a friends place for dinner. They cooked up some home-made pretzels and some sort of beer-cheese sauce to start with, which both came out awesome! We also had Tikka Masala, curried spinach & cheese (an Indian dish), and of course some naan bread. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! We had some wine and Journey blaring through the speakers...it was a great night.
My night didn't stop there, I still had dance practice! My cousin is an amazing dancer and he's putting together a tribute to Beyonce's epic Coachella performance. What I love most about this whole idea is the opportunity he's giving every mom who has an inner-diva, an aspiring dancer, the boy who knows every Beyonce song by heart; a chance to be Bey for a Day. I haven't had to learn an 8-count since my cheer-leading days, but it felt so good to know I still got it....kinda.

This is the part I got down after a few tries:
Saturday: Busy Bee!
You know I work weekends, ain't nothing new. This past Saturday I was posted up at Bert Ogden Subaru where they have FREE TICKETS to the Hermanos Vasquez Circus in Donna! I was with Andy $wagg, which is always fun. I taught him how to sing the Subaru song and he dropped some FIRE pick up lines, you can catch the FB live here . The weather was super cold and rainy but we made the best of it as you can see!
Not sure if you can tell but I'm wearing some pink eye shadow in the photo, because immediately after the event I had my cousins gender reveal party. We have a surplus of boys in my family right now so it was refreshing news when we found out he is having a girl! Not going to lie I was already thinking of names for my next baby BUT no!
No babies for me! Somebody send my ovaries the memo.
After the reveal, we headed down to B-Dubs (Buffalo Wild Wings) for wings, pitchers of beer, and some much needed family time! I was supposed to hit up downtown McAllen with Jammin Jay Z but I bailed because of the weather, we rescheduled for next weekend though. You won't want to miss that recap!
I started the morning with some work, planning out my next series "TRIGGERED: Understanding America's most controversial topics" which I will preview tomorrow (2/12/19) on my podcast AYO BIG GIRL ! After my on air shift, I headed down to my little cousin's birthday party and indulged in some delicious pizza, cake, and cookies! It was a chill Sunday, after the party I saw my girl Karla from Lipstick & Vodka for a quick brainstorming sesh.
I truly believe this is a year for growth, for not only me but anyone ready & willing to work for it!
I told her I had to leave at 7pm so I could watch The Grammy's, I was going to write a whole blog on "The Best of The Grammy's" but I missed a whole hour of it! I thought it started at 8pm but that was EASTERN TIME! Smh.
From what I did see of the Grammy's, I think they were fair. Alicia Keys did a solid job, she's just a little too chill for me personally. The Dolly Parton Tribute, Miley Cyrus STOLE THE SHOW in my opinion! Cardi B is the first female to win Best Rap Album, does that mean there's a new queen of rap? Eooowww. It was honestly just nice watching it with my baby, eating lime chips with avocado cilantro dip.
Next weekend will be LIT! My dad will be visiting from FL so off to MEX we go! I also have my dowtown McAllen crawl with Jammin Jay Z, and a new blog coming every Friday called "Fresh Music Friday!"
