Hello 2009.
Hope everyone is out having fun with their loved ones! That's where I will be, with my two boys.

I will be back to posting normally next week. For now, I am off to enjoy the days off with my Hubster and little boy.

Look What Mama Got!

Yep!! A KitchenAid Pro Series Mixer with Bowl Lift!! Amazing!! It's even stainless steel so it matches my kitchen. It is so funny that he got me this. A couple sundays ago I was in the Kitchen pretending to be a professional baker, and it was a disaster. My hand mixer is horrible! The lowest speed on it, is the fastest speed on most other mixers. So of course I had cookie dough everywhere! Half way through the day, I threw in the towel and said that I give up! So when I saw the Hubster walk in with this on Christmas, I was shocked, but soooo happy. He told me that he hopes this inspires me to get back in the kitchen and give baking another shot. (I think he just wants more cookes!) Either way, I am stoked and I can't wait to whip him up something yummy.

My Little Family

Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
The Hubster has been off for awhile so I have been away from the computer spending time with him and the little boy!

Come A Little Closer

Lately people have been asking me for the secret to my weight loss. Which is a compliment, but also makes me think, "Wow, these people must have thought I was large and in charge!" I always tell everyone that I swear by weight watchers. I know, people hate counting points, but it works for me. I write everything down that way I can see what I am eating. But my real secret, DIET COKE!! I love it. I want to find the creator of it and take him or her to Disneyland. (because it's the happiest place on earth of course!)
Growing up, the only soda we had in our house on a regular basis was Diet. So if we wanted to "sneak" a drink of soda, we had to sneak Diet. I say sneak like my parents didn't know! Like they thought little people snuck into our house at night and drank all the diet soda and ate all the cookies that were hidden in the oven. Didn't we all think our parents were dumb when we were little?
Anyways, I am not sure how Diet Coke is my weight loss secret. I think it's because when I lift that ice cold can to my lips and taste that refreshing beverage, I feel like I am cheating on my diet. Therefore I don't feel the need to cheat with bad foods. If it doesn't make since, oh well! I love it!! My butt loves it too, because I have lost 15lbs!!
I just want to tell the soda gods, Thank you!! Thank you so much for coming up with a "DIET" beverage for us people who want a little uummpphh in their diet, this 15lbs is dedicated to you!

All Done

Here is the finished product!

I put this desk together all by myself.
Pretty impressive huh?

December 18, 2008


Here are some pictures of little boy in the snow. He is like his mommy, he isn't in love with it.

He is smiling because I promised him a Banana.

Here he is mad because I didn't come through on the Banana promise.

Oh man. This pose is so GQ.

Ok seriously, he was pissed here!

And here too. He did not know how to walk in the snow. So when I placed him it, he just stood there. It was cute and funny all at the same time.

Craft Room

The Hubster and I have been redoing our office. Ok, I have been redoing our office. I painted it a chipper yellow color and took off the closet doors. I had him install shelves in the closet to make it my cute little storage place for all my scrapbooking goodies.

The Hubster also hung up my embellishment center. He is amazing when it comes to this stuff. (he is amazing period) Me, I would have just made sure it looked level and hung it. Not him, he got out his stud finder and level to make sure it was perfect. Amazing right?

I am not quite finished with the room, as you can see the shelves are empty. However the floor in the office is COVERED with all my scrapbook stuff. I have so much stuff I could open my own store. I just haven't gotten around to organizing and putting it all away.

I am also waiting for the arrival of this bad boy. I got this desk on sale at and it is now in some UPS truck waiting for me to love all over it! The delivery date says, DEC 19, which is Friday. So, if it gets here and I can sneak in an hour or two, I will post some new fabulous pictures of my Craft Space. HA, what a dorky name.

Ruined Night

After tucking my little boy into bed, I sat down on the couch to watch all my guilty pleasures that I tivo. First up, Ellen DeGeneres. Love that show! Ok, so I press play and viola, it's the obnoxious guy from channel 8 news standing out in the snow. So, I fast forward some more and still the guy from channel 8 news!! He is telling me it's breaking news. Um stupid, it's not really breaking news. It's been snowing all day and I don't think anyone needed you to help them figure that one out. (if u did, my apologizes, you're a moron.) Plus, the news is on at 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11. Did you really need to interrupt my Ellen show at 3, to tell me it's snowing outside? Did you really need to take the whole hour to tell me it's snowing outside?? See why I hate the snow!! Ok, so whatever, on to my next show. Secret Millionaire. I press play and viola, it's the news guy from channel 5. Wonderful. I fast forward a little and the little pesky guy goes away! YES!!! But wait, that's not Secret Millionaire playing, that's a COPS episode from 1987. What the?? I notice some words scrolling across the bottom telling me that because of the snow storm, they can't broadcast regular programming. Again, what the? I have heard of bad weather causing the cable to go out, but I have never heard of bad weather causing 1987 reruns to take over the TV. I am so irritated. It's crap like this that causes me to fall off the weight watchers wagon. Now, I just want to eat a bag of goldfish crackers and watch Roseanne reruns.

Snow Day

Don't wipe your eyes, you read that right. Snow Day in Vegas people. Now, I am not one of those sweet loving people who is going ga-ga for the snow. It's annoying and it's freezing. I will admit, it is pretty to look at, especially since it's Christmas time. But it was pretty two days ago, now it's just annoying. The school district here might declare tomorrow a snow day. Really? I want to call them and tell them that people back east are pointing and laughing at us. For them to declare a snow day, it takes inches and inches of snow, for us, we see four snowflakes and the whole city shuts down. It's probably because people in Vegas can't drive in the snow. Seriously. We have a hard time functioning when it's raining, you think we can drive with big white chunks flying at our cars? I am not saying I know how to drive in it, I am right there with all the other snow-morons. I did however manage to drive to Michaels. Want to know what Captain Obvious (annoying employee) said when I walked in covered in snow, she said, "Is it snowing out there?" No no sweetheart, I am just trying out white hair to see what I will look like in 30 years.

p.s. please don't email me about wanting to buy the sweet Hyundai that's in the picture, it's my dad's and I don't think he would part with his hubcaps.

December 16, 2008


No I am not dead. I just have a sick hubster and a sick little boy. On top of the Hubster not feeling good, he has been crazy busy with work. So I have very little time to get on the computer. I used to get on during nap time, but since little boy hasn't been feeling good, the naps are shorter. If I get on the computer while he is awake, it looks like a tornado ripped through our office. On top of the sickies in my house, I haven't had too much to say lately. I would usually just throw the local Michaels store under the bus, but, I haven't been in there in awhile!! (and by awhile I mean like 5 days) However, I will be going to Michaels tomorrow, so you can bet your brand new victoria secret underwear that I will have a good story for you.

Bad Santa

Took little boy to see Santa today, you would have thought I took him too the dentist. He FREAKED out. He was arching out of Santa's arm. The poor Santa guy, he was giving me the "get this kid out of my hands before I throw him where I threw all the other crying little brats," look. Why don't I have a picture of him screaming? Because the photographer lady at the Meadows Mall sucks. (yes mom, I said SUCKS!!) How come every other mom in America gets proof of the torture she put her kid through, but I get jipped? Have no fear though. I am going to another mall tomorrow. I know what you're thinking, I am an awful mom. When really I am thinking ahead. If we have another child and I get a picture of him/her/it crying on Santa's lap, then I will forever have to listen to Little Boy wonder where his picture with Santa is. Therefore, look out Santa at Fashion Show Mall, here we come.

p.s. if you don't want candy canes stuck in your fake $5 beard, don't give them to the kids BEFORE they sit on your lap. Just a thought.
Happy Holidays!

You're Welcome

The video below is our gift to you.
Notice Hubster's face, it's priceless.
Maybe after seeing that video he will STOP making goofy faces when I am trying to take a picture of him.

Favorite Things

One of my favorite blogs, Thrifty Decor Chick, is having a Favorite Things post for Christmas. So, I thought I would play along and list some things that are my favorites this season.

Britney Spears
She is my favorite ever.
Did you see her special last night? We all have our opions, but none of us know what it's like to live out our worst nightmares in the public eye.
Anyways, I love her and I smell a comeback!

Making Memories Slice
This is my latest love! It's up their on the list of best craft tools.
Jell-O Sugar Free Pudding
Just crumble a little low fat graham cracker in there and you have heaven. And it's only 1 point on weight watchers.
The new Christmas vinyl from Cricut
Grande Nonfat Sugar Free Vanilla Lattes

Homemade Christmas Ornaments!

Look What Mama Made

Impressed?? You should be!! I am in love!
p.s. I am even more in love because Michael's had their Cricut Cartridges on sale for $30 and I got 5!!!

November 28, 2008


This was almost me today. I almost got up and went to Kohl's. I am lying. I did get up and go to Kohl's, but I didn't go in. Heck no, sure didn't. I pulled up to the parking lot and noticed that all the spots within 2 miles of the store were taken, so I decided I better not go in, for little boys sake of course. Anytime we are in big crowds he feels the need to sing and dance, and I didn't know how to explain to him that these people didn't want a show, they wanted a deal. So instead, we went over to Einstein Bagels, again, crazy crowds. Must have been giving out free cream cheese with every onion bagel purchased. So naturally, we skipped breakfast too. What a day!! People are nuts for sure. I ended up at Michael's, (big shocker) and there were only a few women in there, but they were running around grabbing stuff like they were competing on Super Market Sweep. (stop it, you know you remember that game show) I wanted to grab one of them by the arm and tell them to knock it off, they were making little boy sick. It wasn't like Michael's was going to run out of anything. I was buying Cricut Cartridges for $30 and every time I would grab one and put it in my cart, some crazy employee would pop up out of nowhere and replace it. Ladies they had plenty! Anyways!! To all you Black Friday Whack Jobs, I hope you got the all the deals you were looking for without ending up in the E.R.


Hubster got an amazing text on Thanksgiving that I thought I would share:

Just think, that if the Indians and Pilgrims would have feasted on a donkey, then on thanksgiving, instead of having turkey, we would all be having a piece of ass!!


November 26, 2008

All Mine

It's here!! Finally!! I have been wanting the Cricut Expression for so long but just didn't want to spend all that money on it (they retail from $298-399). Soooooooo, I sold my regular Cricut on EBAY and bought this one. I am so excited.
I feel bad for my friends and families because for now on, all gifts coming from the Zamora household, yep, they will be hand made! Suckers.

November 25, 2008

Eat Some More

Ok, so I had a blast this weekend at the Christmas party. It is always fun to stay in hotels and pretend your on vacation. What's not fun, is when you get all ready and you ask the Hubster to zip you up and the zipper to your fabulous dress breaks. And when it does breaks, he asks me if it fit!!! Whoa tiger, back up. Of course the dress fit. (before I had the bag of chips, waffle and sausage) I was in tears thinking of how I was going to miss the Formal Night and those skanky girls were going to be hanging all over my man again! Hubster suggested I drive home and get my other dress, which he didn't like and is the reason I got the new fancy black one. I am thinking, oh yeah, let me just go get the dress you didn't want me to wear in the first place. I cry even harder. Then I think, the mall is two casinos down, I will just go to Express and make them give me a new one. It was a good idea until it took me an hour to go two hotels down!! The Ellen DeGeneres Show was in town so there was so much traffic. I finally got there and then drove around for another 45 minutes looking for a spot. I want to apologize to the little old couple who I almost got out of the car and clobbered with my heel. They stole my spot that I had been waiting for so patiently, with my blinker on. I am sorry for yelling, but in my defense, age doesn't make it ok! Once I got inside I ran through the Forum Shops, pretty much knocking everyone over in my way. Remember, back at the Christmas Party, there are these girls hunting down the Hubster. I had to get back ASAP. The employees at Express were so nice and helped me get dress and get out of there very quickly. After some more traffic, I made it back to the Christmas party just in time for dinner. And the dress was a hit. People I didn't even know were coming up to me and saying how amazing I looked. (ok maybe they didn't say amazing, so what if I added that) They did love the dress though!! Hubster looked like a total hottie too. All in all, the party was a hit.

November 17, 2008

For Sure

I am wearing a dress on Saturday!!
It's Hubster's Christmas party and Saturday night is the fancy night. Normally I am not a dress person but I got a tan, lost 12 pounds and learned how to put on make up. So I guess you could say I am feeling a little cocky. Plus, Hubster picked this dress out. Good job him right? I told him he better watch out because all of his employees are going to want my number. Just kidding. The only number they are going to want is what number in line I am so they know how much longer until they get some shrimp cocktail.


So I went to the store today in search of some new yummy wine. I had to use my Sister's (she is my in-law, but in law sounds so yucky.) wine expertise to pick out some yummy wine because she is fabulous and works at a winery. She told me some brands and after 90 laps around the alcohol section, I grabbed my choice. I donn't have any wine glasses at home and thought I could just stop at a home store and grab some. Then, I remembered how bad my day had been and figured stopping at the home store would prolong my wine drinking, so I thought, Albertsons has to have a section that sells glasses. I get over to the seasonal aisle and see PLASTIC wine glasses. Sweet. Nothing tackier then that, sold. I grabbed my glass and was on my way.
Now, the things I hate most in life are, being judged and self checkout. When you have two bottles of wine and one wine glass, you have to go to self checkout or you know the cashier at the regular check will for sure judge you. Then I would be forced to tell her about my horrible day and how I swear I am not an alcoholic and bla bla blah. Then she would judge me as a crazy alcoholic who needs therapy. Not good. So, I went to self check out. I figured that I only had 3 things, how bad could it be. Well, it was going great, until the stupid computer didn't believe I was 21 and called the cashier over anyway. Now, I am being judged and I am using self checkout. What a wonderful situation. Told you my day was going good.
Right then I wanted to tell the cashier to hold on because I was for sure in need of a third bottle.

Just In Case...

You forgot how cute he is.
Don't mess with him and bananas. That was his best friend, Quinn's banana. As you can see little boy is eating it. Well Quinn, that will teach you to put it down and walk away.

Hubster = Funny?

I am so sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately. It's like my brain won't function. I even tried feeding it diet coke and cookies (it's favorite) and still nothing. I was telling Hubster the other day about my blogging funk and he told me to blog about him. I told him that I blog about him all the time! He said he meant for me to blog about his jokes and how funny he is. That's when I lost it. Hubster is so cute and a blast to be around, he is even cuter when he thinks he is funny. I am not sure where he gets his jokes, but they aren't knee slappers thats for sure.
For instance, the other morning at breakfast, I ordered a BLT. When we were done eating, I looked down and saw bread crumbs all over my shirt. No, I am not a messy eater, it's just the bread was toasted which made for a mess. I start to wipe the bread crumbs off my shirt and I say to hubster, "Man that sandwhich was crumby." He goes, "Wow, that bad huh?" Right then I look at him and get ready to say that I didn't mean it like that, and I notice he is cracking up. That's when I realized he knew what I meant, he was just cracking a joke.
So you see what I am working with?

November 11, 2008

Out Of The Closet

Ok. So the other day while discussing our Thanksgiving plans, Hubster informed me that his sister Terry and her girls would be coming to Vegas for some turkey. I thought oh nice! Then he said, "Yeah she is bringing the girls here to see The Jonas Brothers." My first thought? JEALOUS!!!!! Oh yeah, you are hearing (or reading) it here first! I am a closet Jonas Brothers fan. Now before you start laughing at me, remind yourself of the time you were driving to the grocery store and their song came on. You know you sang to it like you were competing on the last night of American Idol. It's ok though. It's something about their catchy tunes, and only their catchy tunes. Because as much I love to sing along to there obnoxious love songs, I can't stand watching them perform. Probably because I just can't watch them move around in those tight pants. When and if I do watch, the whole time, I am just staring at places I shouldn't be staring at! And not even in a perverted way, it's more of an "ouch, doesn't that hurt" way.
If you don't know what I am talking about, GOOGLE them right now! Then you will ask the same thing I ask, how do they get those pants on? Do they use Crisco or olive oil?
Wardobe aside though, I do have to admit, I like their music. Therefore, I am jealous that my sister-in-law and nieces get to go to the concert. Hubster and I are going to a USC Football game that weekend. So I will just have to make him listen to The Jonas Brothers cd all the way there!!!

November 6, 2008


So I know I am a day late, but yesterday, November 5th was my brother Matt's birthday. Since I couldn't be there with him to celebrate, I thought I would dedicate one of my obnoxious posts to him. So here is your very own post Matt!!

Here is a photo of him from his birthday last year.
Back off ladies, he has a hot wife!
Here is the best photo ever!
This year he became the 2008 National Wrestling Champion. He is a little excited. That's ok, it's his post.

Modesto, CA

This past weekend we went to California for my cousin Shelly's wedding. It was a good time and so good to see my family.
p.s. My cousin Shelly is a knockout and I feel sorry for all the bachelors out there because she is off the market.
Here are some pictures from our weekend.

Cute daddy moment. He had to let him play with the pack of gum until he fell asleep.

Hubster and I! Rare photo, since I am always the one taking the pictures.

Little Boy being charming. Like father like son.

He is so GQ.

Proud to be an American!
I don't know about all of you, but I was glued to the tv last night as I watched our nation elect it's first African American President. It was amazing and very emotional. No matter who you voted for or where you stand, I hope you were proud of that moment.

Here Is The Skinny

I was at Target the other day, and I overheard a conversation with an employee and a pregnant woman checking out. It was such an awkward conversation and I wanted to climb over the counter and punch the employee out. It just made me think back to my pregnancy and reminded me of all the stuff that people I DIDN'T know would say that irritated me.
Here are a few.
Are you pregnant?
My response was always "No, I am just really fat!!"
Don't ask this question ever!! What if they are heavy and not carrying a little nemo in there? Then how bad do you feel? And if they are pregnant, it is none of your business anyway!
When are you due?
This question really annoyed me!! Only because when I would tell them the date, they would start going on and on about their due date and how their baby came late or early and blah blah. By the time they were done, my ice cream was melted or my french fries were cold (which ever one my little fetus was craving at the time).
Can I touch your belly?
Um, no. Never. Please back away from me now.
Is it a boy or girl?
Does it really matter? Seriously. Once I tell you what it is, you are then going to ask what name I have, then you will proceed to give me your opinion on my name choice. Can I remind you that I am pregnant and very moody??
How much weight have you gained?
Excuse me? How much weight have you gained, fatty? Would you say this to someone who wasn't pregnant? So why would you say it to a prego when her hormones haven't seen normal in 6 months? Some people's children!!
Are you going to breastfeed?
This one was my favorite. Only because I would NEVER ask someone I didn't know, if they were going to put the baby on the boob. That is such a personal decision and none of your business, nosey lady at walmart!!
I am sure there are plenty more questions, those were just the ones that random strangers would ask me on a daily basis. It's amazing how once you have a little nemo taking up residence inside of you, people think they have a right to know every detail of how it got there and how it's getting out.
Another great thing is when you go to dinner and people get these scared looks on their faces like if they don't order before you, they might not get any. That's the best.
And last but not least, how about when you go to lunch with your parents and when you order an appetizer and a sandwich, your dad looks at you and says, "No wonder you are 200lbs."
Really? I am serious, my Dad said that to me. It's hilarious now, but then, I think I cried hysterically. It was embarrassing.
Remember, if you don't know them, leave pregnant girls alone.
And if you do know them? Don't ask to enter them into a hot dog eating contest.

1 Year

This is what little boy did after I told him he was a whole year old and he will get presents and cake.
This was the look he gave us after we told him now that he was a whole year, he would have to start paying rent and contributing. No one gets a free ride.

It's tough turning one.


Cutest nugget ever.

Happiest Place On Earth

No, I don't mean the local Ben & Jerry's, though that could quite possibly be my second happiest place on earth. I am talking Disneylad folks. Yep, we went. It was ahhhhmazing. Here are some pictures of our little nugget enjoying himself.

You can't really tell, but he is dancing here. His newest move is to put his hands up in the air and let the music take him over. It's hilarious.

Here is when he spotted the Churro Machine. He went nuts. (don't all hispanic babies?)

He has his churro, and now he is off to Tom Sawyer Island to find the treasure. We didn't have the heart to tell him that there wasn't really treasure.

Here are my two men in front of the Halloween Sign. So cute.

Here are the boys with Eeyore. Or as Hubster would say, "that donkey."

October 21, 2008

Not Tonight Honey, I am full.

Ever been turned down by your spouse? (you know what I am talking about) I am sure we have all heard the excuse, or used the excuse, "Not tonight honey, I have a headache." Or, I am too tired. Blah blah blah.
Well my poor sweet friend "Bertha," was turned down by her hubby the other day.
She had 30 minutes in between jobs and was so excited to get home to him. Well what she didn't know, was that while she was working, he was stuffing his face full of peanut butter and jelly and washing it down with 7up. I know, I just threw up in my mouth too.
When she got home and told him her plans for them, he about puked. Only because the thought of any physical activity made his stomach turn. And not because his wife is not hot (she is a total betty), it's because the jiffy and the strawberry jam in his belly weren't putting up with the 7-up's crap. There for he had to break the news to her. "Not now honey, I am way too full."
Sad, but true.
I don't make this stuff up people.

Just a Little P.S.

Disney Resorts is having an AWESOME deal for 2009.

They are giving everyone free admission on their birthday in 2009. Amazing isn't it? I love me some Disney so of course Manny and I are both registered.

Kids under 3 are always free, so that means next year on mine or his birthday we will only have to pay for one ticket and all 3 of us will get in. Sweet!!

Stop reading my blog and get over to the Disney Resort website and register. Tickets are running about $70 so that is a HUGE savings. It is any resort you want too.

You can go to Florida or California.

That's your tip for the day. Don't ever say I never helped you save money.

You Have The Right To Be Price Checked

I went to Michael's the other day. (big shock) The one by me has been redone and is now pretty much heaven. I know you are all wondering if I went to the cash register to torture Miss Sassy Pants, but I didn't. I didn't even buy anything. I told you 2 posts ago that I wasn't feeling good, I wasn't lying. I almost died. (no I didn't) Anyways.
So while I was in Michael's, I noticed some employee walking around with a price scanner shooting it at people. At first, I just thought it was the cold medicine making me hallucinate, so I just ignored him. Then little boy (he is out of rehab and doing great) and I spotted him again. Seriously, the employee was playing Cops and Robbers with another employee and their scanners were their guns. I couldn't believe my eyes. I busted out laughing. I couldn't control myself. Even little boy was laughing. We weren't sure what was funnier, that two employees were getting paid some crappy wage to fend off evil bad guys or that there are two guys that work at Michael's. Either way, you can be sure that the crime rate is low at the Centennial Michael's thanks to these two morons.


We recognize that he has a problem.

Here is the intervention. Daddy told him he must go to rehab.
