1.7 Years ago.. This happened

Randomly, I go back to look at our engagement session pictures, and I fall back in love with them all over again.
I still haven’t printed any of these pictures to hang on my living room’s bare walls, and I need to make this part of my New Year’s to do list/resolution. The photographer did an amazing job and took beautiful shots. You can check Ken Pak amazing photography at his blog VisualSketch I am already planning on having another Photoshoot on one of our upcoming anniversaries.

I will share more amazing shots with you in the near future.

So the US retired it’s space shuttle, Discovery. For its last ride, it sat on top of a modified Boeing 747 for a ride around the DC area, and finally to touch down at Washington Dulles International Airport. Then, it will be transferred to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum nearby. Now, that’s history and I was part of it!
I left all the work and ran to the sidewalk to wait for it. It passed by two times in less than 15 minutes. I was able to catch a few shots.

The Boeing was so close and loud. It was amazing. A great feeling and a very cool view.
That’s one of the advantages of living near DC. You get to be part of some cool incidents that will be part of country’s history.

Indulge Yourself in Sweetness..

Last weekend, I hosted a spa party for my girls. A skin analyst specialist was there featuring an amazing machine that analyzes up to three layers of the skin. Through that machine, you get to know your skin better, learn where your trouble spots are, get educated on their condition, and get help and recommendations for treating them.

Many of the girls learn that their skin wasn’t actually the type they’ve always thought it was. For example, my sister had always the impression that her skin was oily to combination. However, it turned out that her skin is Normal to dry! They were all impressed with the machine and the products that were promoted. A few things I love about their products: they are all natural, cruelty free, work amazingly, and are made in the United States. [I will have more in depth review on the products]

One tip I need to share with you here is, Please Use Sunscreen Every Day of Your Life! This small step can save you so much in the future. Sunscreen now = Less Wrinkles in the future. Trust me!

Other than impressing my guests with the special facial treatments, they were all in love with the other treats. Dessert. Something you need to know about me is that I absolutely LOVE Red Velvet! That weekend was the one following Valentine’s Day, so what a better way to celebrate than having Red Velvet treats everywhere?

I love decorating; therefore, I enjoyed making a cute display out of those delicious treats. I got so many compliments on the dessert and the food. It always feels good when you leave a great impression on others. These little things make you, and the others around you, so Happy.

The menu was:

Red Velvet mini cups

Strawberry Dipped in Chocolate

Pink Champagne

Vitamin Shots

Avocado Cherry Tomato Salad

Caesar Salad

Margarita Pizza

Wings

[My family owns a few pizzerias; therefore, our guests always request having pizza and wings at our parties, because they are that delicious]

The day went by fast and everyone enjoyed their time. It was great having the girls over. I haven’t hung out with them since my wedding. We had a fantastic day together and hopefully will be planning another get together soon.

Seriously, what’s a better day than relaxing, sipping champagne, and indulging in deliciousness?

I cannot get over the Red Velvet!
