The Versatile Blogger Award



I received my first blog award from fellow blogger and new friend, Catherine Winn of The Writing Room. It comes with the following five rules.


1. Thank those who loved me enough to bestow this gift. --Done
2. Share seven things about myself. --See below 
3. Bestow this honour onto 15 newly discovered or followed bloggers – in no particular order – who are fantastic in some way. --I'll do 5
4. Drop by and let my fifteen new friends know I love them.
5. Any rule may be modified by any recipient for any reason. --I reduced it to 5


2. Seven things about myself:
* I'm the middle child (well of 6)
* My favorite mixed alcoholic drink is Midori Sour (It's a green lemony/sour drink) 
* I work part time to spend more time with my kids
* Favorite wine is Lambrusco (sweet well-priced red wine)
* I have a phobia of fire 
* Favorite fruit: Watermelon (It's always good, refreshing and I don't get tired of it)
* Would I rather be a photographer or model? That's easy... photographer of course


I'm a big believer in paying it forward. My Versatile Blogger Awards go to:


* Patty Godinez of The Blowing Branches - I learn something new and insightful every time I visit.


Single and Thirty-Something - I like to drop in and see what single-thirty-something is up to, especially since I'm thirty-something and married.


* Nikki from bottledsky.com for having an a great relationship with awesome parents, and for having a cute and creative blog site which she designed herself.


* Elvia from WritingsBeneathMyTongue for her sultry writing. 


Catherine A. Winn from The Writing Room - For insightful lessons of a writer's life.

Life Hack: DIY Bleacher Seat Cushion

One of the staples I keep in the truck of my car is my DIY bleacher seat cushion.
Its a flat thin recyclable bag with a folded picnic blanket inside.
This DIY is so simple, it seems too common sense to blog about. But I will since it phases me why anyone would buy one of those foam seat cushions I see on sale at sporting good stores and events. This one is on sale for $15!

My DIY bleach seat cusion is way more functional than a manufactured bleacher seat cushion which has only one purpose.

Having a blanket conviently stored inside makes it multifunctional.

 You have a blanket on hand for those chilly early morning meets. And any time we are at outdoor events with my mom or inlaws, I'm prepared for the evening cold for them as well.
 A shade for the afternoon sun.
Fold it length wise for a multiple seat cushion, to reserve extra seat space, or to spread out your legs.
(As a track mom of three sons, I can been on the bleachers for hours. I'm writing this blog from the bleachers.…

Detained In The Desert

I went to see Josefina Lopez’s world premier play, “Detained In The Desert”. Josefina, known for her popular Real Women Have Curves, was vacationing in Arizona when SB 1070 was passed. She was unable to go to protest rallies held that night because of prior family commitments but Josefina had it in her heart to do something.  In the five years between 2003 and 2007, there was a 40 percent increase in crimes against Latinos. It’s no wonder considering the proliferation of “hate talk” that spews off the radio, TV, and internet and aims at infuriating the masses. In a climate saturated with negative propaganda, fear mongering, and increasing violence, what one would consider a random act of violence is in reality not so random after all. When we create a society that is so pitted against one another, our chance encounters become unavoidable collisions between unsuspecting individuals caught within the biome of the conflicted society in which we live. It’s like walking into a room with se…

Went to Memoir-Writing Workshop

I went to a memoir-writing workshop recently. I don't want to be the girl who cries at the slightest thing but, in this case, I was. They asked the question: who told you, you can't write? We had to state our writing demons, and then write out the dialog between this inner critique and our retaliation to their remarks. Ultimately, it is only ourselves that can hold us back from our own dreams. But sometimes we've internalized the voices of others tell us that we can't.  I'd done this exercise before privately, in my own bed, in my own room, and in my own journal but never out loud. When we were done, we had to go around the table and read the dialog. I was picked the first to go. Before I could even let out a word, my throat choked up, my face turn red, and my eyes began to water. I read and cried. We all cried. I thought I had left all that hurt hidden away on paper somewhere, and there it was strangling me. I can't begin to describe that whole situation with …
