Yesterday I spent half my evening at Walmart shopping for Christmas lights and figuring out the ones I really wanted. There are some certain icicle lights that are multi function led that look like they are falling snowflakes. Its hard to explain. I just decorated my front windows with blue and white led multi function lights and then added some snowflake window clings. My apartment is the only one on its block that stands out lol. I'm proud of it. I also put lights on the rails and up on top of my kitchen shelving with big red poinsettias (fake). This is a start of my decorating. I want to buy a couple of Christmas trees too. Fake of course. I love Christmas and decorating. I want to make a gingerbread house. I never made one and this will be the first year for that if I decide to do it.
Sunday I went to the Colts game and I knew knew knew something told me not to go. We really got creamed by the chargers in this game. After the 2nd quarter it was a done deal. Manning got sacked, then we had a interception, etc. etc. I left during the last 10 mins of the 4th quarter and so did everyone else too lol. Traffic was not pretty. Here are a few pictures
From my seat.......
I should have did a before and after with the crowd. Here is a before
Indiana State University Sycamores Marching Band for half time. Go Sycamores!
I was eating my tuna special and a certain someone hint hint. Seems to love eating whatever I am eating. Inferno can eat and he is like a garbage disposal. He kept meowing at me to I finally gave in
My back is sore as I did a few sets of heavy deadlifts yesterday at the rec center. Hours will be changing soon and there is a time I think December 22 that they will be closed till January 3rd I think. Luckily I have other memberships. I may be vacation around that time :)
I know in January I will be away from the snow and enjoying someplace warm and tropical.
Going to train and then running errands
Talk to you later going to train and then running my errands.

Pray for our Colts

Before I left for Indianapolis, it broke my heart leaving my Grandma. She kept on begging me to stay over and over again. I tried to explain to her I got the lovely "cold" weather to go back too. Burrrr. NOT! lol. She is very understanding, as she knows it was time for me to go. I have a Colts Chargers game to attend tomorrow in Indianapolis and I thought about staying the night for the game. If only that new JW Marriott On South West St was open, but it won't be till February. We are going to cream those Chargers. Look Out! Peyton is going to come back fierce for this game. Its a great advantage being on our soil. The Chargers have won the last 3 games and I am surprised how "cheap cheap" the tickets are for this game lol. Seriously. It will be fun. I will be in section 144. woohoo
Well I should be home just in time for SNL tonight. Next week is busy for me. I will be going to the training camp Tuesday and then this weekend, there is a NPC meeting and the following day I start EMT school for 14 days. Which I still have to pick up my BDUs. I should do this sometime this coming week. My book should be in sometime on the 30th. Okay got to run.
See you at the Game
Well I will miss her. Bless her heart, she is a ball a fire and can barely walk around. My sister well before I left her she rubs her armpits on my nose.. Yuck..What a way to say goodbye
Real quick..Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I hope your belly's are stuffed and that you can barely move. :)
I had a double Thanksgiving. Spending it with friends in Terre Haute, and then heading the same day spending it with my family that evening in Orlando, where it was hot and humid. Then we crashed another friend of the family's house and ate some more. Can I get a Amen for beans and rice. I love love Spanish food. There's nothing like it. I ate and ate. But I am a sucker for good ole American mashed sweet potato casserole. YUMMY. Orlando has changed. I looked for a Anytime Fitness and I only found 2 locations...In Orlando, seriously. The locations are too far for me. Golds is my homeboy. :)
These are some pictures from the Patritots Colts game. I had a great seat, but it sure wasn't worth the price especially since we didn't do so hot. There wasn't many Colts fans but I did see some here and there, sporting the Manning jerseys, and their Colt head hats. I was sitting in the back of a few drunk Patriot fans and Screaming out "Manning you suck" and "I hope you die Vinatieri"(ex Patriot LOL). These guys were a riot and out of control. With my experience at the game I think what I got a kick out of the most was the patriots firing the riffles and the fog horn lol. I was sitting in my seat freezing my buns off. I couldn't feel my hands, my feet, or my face. I was trying to update Facebook fans but my fingers were too frozen to text as I have a "touch" screen. We would not have even had the comeback we did in the second quarter if it wasn't for Manning. Yes we had some painful moments with the interceptions, bit bot as painful as the last one where we would have won the game...grrrrr
We had President/Noble Peace Prize winner Jimmy Carter and Steve Tyler (Areosmith) in the da house. The crowd could care less about Jimmy Carter and were more focused on Steve Tyler.
Sorry to make this short but here are some of my pictures.
Tom Brady.........Kiss, reminds me of a friend of mine.
Inferno being sneaky
Wait for it .....
Wait for it..
I think its time to get someone declawed...Inferno think s he is the king of the house.

Recently I have been having a blast with the little bit of time I have before I go to my EMT training in Bloomington next month. I am looking forward to the class but not to the 14 day 9-7pm hours. I will also be living in Bloomington, IN temporary with my little kids (bunny, pookie, and inferno) Oh boy this will be fun. I still need to get my BDUs for the class and my textbook. I need to order that today.
So many of you know I went to see Josh Groban in New York Town Hall. It was amazing. The majority of the crowd was heavier set women and middle aged women. We can't blame them for going wild for Josh. He is so talented and what an Incredible voice. It makes my heart melt. :) It was a unique experience. He didn't have his orchestra and it was just him and 2 other people. He also went and took questions from the audience. At one point he said he was a Giants fan and some people started going nuts and chanting the Jets. They were seriously getting upset lol.
Move over Bono, as there's a new man in my life now lol. If I had the finances or the connections, I would want him to perform for me and a few of my friends. That would be SWEET.
I had a wonderful time, and there's nothing like the big apple.
Tomorrow I will be heading to Boston. yes...Boston. The Colts are playing and I wanted to go to an away game and this by far is one to check out besides the cold weather. Thank yo Stub Hub again :) Of course I got my ticket from there. Section 130 row 6 on the colts side. "yeah" the game is almost sold out. I am excited. I rented a car and will do a little site seeing and I always wanted to check out Salem which is about 45 minutes from Boston. So much history in Boston. In the following week I will be attending the Colts women's training camp, November 30th in Indianapolis. Sweet!
Thanksgiving is coming up very soon. I will be doing a split Thanksgiving. I will spend some time here in Terre Haute with my friends then I will be heading to the airport to go see my grandmother in Orlando that evening. The next day I will be taking my grandma, my sister and myself on a cruise. My Gma needs a getaway in the worst way. I love her very much and want to do whatever I can for her, especially putting a smile on her face.
Inferno the Bengal has been naughty, He has been peeing all over my clothes. I can tell you I wasn't too thrilled about that. I immediately went and took him to be neutered. He has gotten to be a little wild and too big for his age lol.
Okay time to get a bit of shut eye and to count some sheep. I miss the little things

You know I always ramble about how I like to live life as an adventure and also I believe in doing spontaneous things. Okay here it is…….I’M GOING TO SEE JOSH GROBAN IN CONCERT THURSDAY. OMG I am so excited. The last “concert” I went to was puff daddy and little Kim years ago in Orlando I think the first time I heard of him was a year and a half ago when My ex fiancé bought me Josh Groban’s Awake cd after watching him perform on Jay Leno. What a gorgeous voice, and he is only 30. My friend Pavel is a Bono look a like and might I add a very talented musician. He will be coming to Indianapolis towards the middle of the month, as he has never been here. I'm curious to see how the Hoosier State will welcome him. :) Getting back to my point, here he is with the one and only Josh Groban on the red carpet.
I don’t know why, but Josh Groban popped up in my head yesterday. I enjoy his music very much. I was curious and went to his website browsing and noticed that he released his new album yesterday. How funny is that. It’s a sign. No, I didn’t go get the album , but I saw that he was going to be on tour. Curious me, I looked, and sure enough with my luck there was only 2 tours he was going to be having a concert in NYC this Thursday and then another in London. Both are SOLD OUT. I was disappointed BUT you know most people see that and then just give up. NOT ME *SMILE *. I saw it as a opportunity, and I have faith. There were a few tickets on stub hub and some costing anywhere from $600-1000 for front row. This is where I draw the line and browse affordably without burning holes in my pockets. What mattered to me is that I was there. I don’t care where I am sitting lol. Besides that’s why they have binoculars. I found a ticket dead center balcony. I love NYC, but it’s not for everyone. I have been to Manhattan a lot, as most of you know I have a BIG family in Brooklyn and Queens . The majority is in Brooklyn, and almost every day it’s a party at their house or its bingo night. For me I like to enjoy the sites and history. Not to mention the people watching and NY’s fabulous characters. The Naked Cowboy is one. I haven’t seen him in a while. But I have seen the naked “granny” cowgirl. Talk about a bad nightmare. Then we have the ghetto Elmo, Cookie Monster, Pooh Bear, ghetto fabulous Mickey Mouse, and my recent favorite the one arm Spongebob
Another week till Thanksgiving…yumm. Bring on the sweet potato and green bean casserole’s my way. Hey don’t forget the stuffing. Holidays are getting closer as we know it. Look out mall madness. I was talking to a friend of mine this past Sunday (GO COLTS), as we were shopping that evening for a dress for her daughter. I mentioned to her that I want to go to Mall of America , before the end of the year. Now that is a suicide mission especially before Christmas, as I can’t even and don’t want to IMAGINE the hoards of people there. It would be a great experience and its nice to say I experienced Mall Of America. My girlfriend is all gung ho about it. She has a few kids, mostly boys so doing a road trip with them alone would be an adventure. Going back to our shopping, we went to Keystone Crossing or Fashion Mall where they have a Sheraton connected to the Mall, along with a Cheesecake Factory. It’s been a long time since I been to Cheesecake Factory in general. So going back to my shopping, we walked around and looked for a dress and came out empty. SO then we rushed over to Circle Center and went to Nordstrom there as well as another store and again came up empty. Her daughter is probably going to get her dress online, as she already saw a dress on there that was gorgeous. It’s a hefty price tag but its worth every penny. I can’t wait to see pictures. We then headed to Chilis for munch as my friend calls it and then drove back home to Terre Haute. Notice I am not talking much about the Colts as these last few games haven’t sat well with me.
From this Saturday I am 15 weeks from the Mrs. International and 27 weeks from the NY Pro. I can’t WAIT to step on stage again. I miss it. Everyone is talking about the new women’s Physique Class coming next year. I won’t go into details on my thoughts. But I will say it can be a very positive thing as far as girls/women don’t have to worry so much about the “size and conditioning” factor. At some past shows we have had girls win shows who were soft and jiggly but presented themselves very nicely on stage. This new class will be perfect for competitors like that as well as girls that may get overlook such as the small girls like LW, Middles, and some LHWs, lastly we don’t have to worry about the super drawn in face which can demonstrate a very unhealthy look for female . As far as female bodybuilding being the end as some have predicted..I highly doubt that.
I can’t stop thinking about a chainmail my girlfriend sent me about Puerto Ricans. It was pretty much like Jeff Foxworthy’s “ you know you’re a red neck” jokes. So I get this chainmail with several things describing Puerto Ricans. One of those things was you know your Puerto Rican if you’re the only one clapping your hands when your plane lands lol. I have done this. Another one is using your lips/mouth to point to things. Ha ha, I have done this quite a few times and picked that up from my grandmother. I will see if I can have my girlfriend forward me that text again and I will post it on here. I got a kick out of it.

I have been training more frequently now at the gym. I took a little break as my body once in a while appreciates that. I have never been any stronger than what I am now. It feels nice. I had a superb chest workout and a monstrous pump. My Saturday night was fun but I cut it short as I have new baby to take care of.
At first pookie mouse was not too thrilled about him. Here is an example. She would watch the kitten play and then hiss but the other day they finally played for the first time. Its a relief for me as I didn't think Pookie would change. The only problem now is they run around the house and up and down the stairs, especially at night. Now my boy is very smart. He knows how to open my doors lol. He will jump up and hang on the handle to open my door. He is no fool lol. One thing I notice is he is most active in the evening time like late night. During the day he sleeps and sleeps. Which a few days ago i layed on my bed to take a nap and realized someone had tinkled on my bed lol. I was not a happy camper. His name should be Mr. Tinkles.. *wink. I take him to Pets Smart as much as I can to get him socialized. I walk him on a ferret leash and he goes around the store like he's king until he see's a dog then acts tough hisses and runs. He is very loving with people and very calm. When we go for a ride in the car he lays on my lap. I never seen a cat like this lol. I will keep you updated on him.
I took a bit of time yesterday cleaning the house, mopping the floors, and putting stuff together to donate for the Light House Mission. I needed a break so I scrambled some egg whites with mushrooms, green and red peppers, and a little bit of Swiss cheese. It was good!!! Then I watched cast away earlier and cried my eyes out when Tom Hanks came back to his lost love...I'm a sap for movies folks. :) You had me at hello *wink *wink
Holidays are coming fast. I am debating on a fresh Christmas tree or a fake one. The time to get your tree is right after thanksgiving. You go to the tree farm and chop chop and its all yours. Just make sure there are no squirrels in it like in the movie Christmas Vacation. I remember at Thanksgiving when I was young we used to launch potatoes in the potato launcher. How country is that lol.
I'm happy to say after Thanksgiving is over I will be going on a Baja cruise for a few days. I am looking forward to that. Unlimited grade A steaks, chicken breast, salad bar, and a good quality gym.. you can't beat that. I just wish the dumbbells went up to at least 150 lbs. I'm not that lucky though. I still can't believe how much stronger I am after my break. Next month we have our Indiana NPC meeting for the judges and promoters. I will keep you posted.
I need to find a photographer to take professional pictures of me, bunny, and the cats. I am going to buy all of them Colts jerseys or we can do holiday outfits. I am going to use the photos as holiday cards and also for advertising in the local paper here in town for my pet fitness program.
Its sleepy time..
