A-Z All About Me

Yeah so I totally don't have any clue why my a-z all about me post looks the way it does.
I apologize for that but no matter how many times I go in to edit, and change the size of the text it still comes out ginormous.

A-Z All About Me

I have been tagged once again! This time by my girl over at
Thanks Gabbs! If I tag you, you must do the same thing on your blog!

Attached or Single? Happily married to the man of my dreams! We're going on 5 and a half years.

Best Friend? I would have to say my mommy. We have become so close through these tough times.

Cake or Pie? I am definitely a chocolate smothered... not covered, but smothered cake girl! Although a nice slice of sweet potato pie with whip cream ALWAYS hits the spot!

Day of Choice? Friday... DATE NIGHT! My Hunster and I usually wait until the kids are in bed and then we order in from our favorite wing place and snuggle up on the couch.

Essential Item? My journal. I carry it with me everywhere I go, jotting down random thoughts or poems that come to mind.

Flavor of Ice Cream? I loooove Moose Tracks. But for some reason I always go back to Butter Pecan.

Gummy Bears or Worms? Neither! Not a big fan of things that take the rest of the day to get out of my teeth.

Hometown? The original 5-6-1 ya'lls

Indulgences? Getting my nails done. After wearing gloves all day just about everyday because I'm scrubbing toilets, washing dishes, or doing some other kind of grease fighting it's nice to pamper them every once in a while.

January or July? January, most definitely!

Kids? Two beautiful children, Poopy (5) Beany (19ms)

Last Movie I saw in a Theater? My mom and sister took me out for my birthday to see Mama Mia. It was so good. We were cracking up. I downloaded the soundtrack a few days later on itunes.

Middle name? Maria. Named after St. Mary

Number of Siblings? I have 4 brothers and 1 sister.

Oranges or Apples? I prefer apples.

Phobia or Fear? Lizards. I'm serious! I'm deathly afraid.

Quote? " I am not moved by what I see, I am not moved by what I feel. I am moved by what I believe." Smith Wigglesworth

Reason to Smile? My family. My wonderful husband, my hero, and my two beautiful children.

Season? Fall/Winter. I love to wrap up in my scarves, put on my furry boots and go out for a nice chai latte with my girls.

Tag five more: Yeah ummm... Gabbs you pretty much got everybody. None of my other friends blog... they just read mine.

Unknown Fact About Me? I am completely obsessed with anything having to do with money management. I get so excited every Friday to sit down and do our budget for the coming week.

Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals? I could be a vegetarian... but my husband needs his meat.

Worst Habit? Drinking Coca~Cola. I have a weakness for the stuff.

Xrays or Ultrasounds? Both... they were kinda cool.

Your favorite Food? I would have to say Sushi.

Zodiac? Leo

Beany just loooves his papi. Everyday when Emilio hears my hunsters keys in the door he makes a mad dash for the door creaming "Daaaaaaddyyyyy."

In the first picture I left the Bean with the grandparents while taking Amiyah to a classmates party one Saturday, and my hunster was working that Sat as well.
When I came to pick up my bean I come in the house to find him laying on the floor napping in his papi's arms. Ok people this is a big deal... he doesn't even fall asleep with ME anymore! It was really sweet.

In the next pick my Hunster was on the computer and the bean came in for some papi time. He screamed to get up into his lap and once there all he wanted was his sweet papi kisses. All I could hear from the other room was mmmuuuhh... mmmuuuhh.

Art Lessons

Since starting school Amiyah will come home and teach Emilio a little something she learned on that particular day. Today was cursive b. Of course Emilio just does his usual scribble scrabble. But Amiyah being the great teacher she is just goes on encouraging every scribble he makes.

It's spaghetti time!

So I think I mentioned in a previous post about my beany and his picky eating.
Well it wasn't until recently when we placed a bowl of spaghetti (something he would never eat before because he doesn't like meat... or so we thought) in front of him with a spoon that we noticed he took right to it. Ate every last bite... meat and all!
So we have come to the conclusion that it was just a matter of independence. He wanted to be the one to feed himself. Of course with me right there making sure the spoon was right side up so that it actually made it in his mouth and not all over the floor.
Mealtime around the Zarazua house is a lot more peaceful these days.

Now, on to the BIG BOY CUP...

This is an example of letters that Amiyah writes almost daily to Jesus.
She's so incredibly thoughtful, always thinking of the hurts and needs of others.

Here I am again!

Ok ok... so I'm not the best blogger.
I think I could be though... if I just made time for it.
So I'm back in action. Now if I could only get these pics to upload...
