Happy Gobble Day!!!

Is it already Thanksgiving Day?! This holiday came by so fast and I just know that Christmas is going to come just as fast! A couple of years ago, I didn't know what my plans were for the holiday because ever since Nanny passed away, it's been so hard trying to figure out where to celebrate this holiday of food and thanks. Last year, I had Thanksgiving at my apartment for the first time. It was just a small thing with some of my family and Juan. He really doesn't celebrate it and isn't a fan of turkey but he won't turn down cooked food. :) It was a good time and I actually did a good job cooking! Go me!

This year however, seeing as we don't have our apartment anymore, I had to find somewhere to go and eat and since I had been communicating more with my Auntie Brenda, I asked if I could come over and eat. She said yes and now I find myself writing this blog in her house. I spent the night because my husband had to leave for Lubbock, TX with his family. I miss him so much already. But I know he's going to have a good time, just like I will. He'll be drinking and I'll be eating. We'll definitely keep in touch while he's over there.


Already, I can tell this is going to be some good eating. There's going to be turkey, ham, stuffing, corn, mac and cheese, greens, giblet gravy, cranberry sauce, pecan and sweet potato pie, and yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Then there is the fruit salad that I helped make. I hope everybody likes it. My mom is going to her best friend's house to eat and we made a deal that when we get through eating, she's going to make me a plate from there and I'm going to make her a plate from there. That way we get to eat all kinds of stuff. I know...we're gluttons!

I don't really know why I love Thanksgiving so much. Maybe it's the food...maybe it's the family. I think it's both, really. Just being able to sit and eat good soul food with your family makes it all worth it. I haven't seen this part of my family in a long time and it's going to be so nice to hang out with them for a while. 

I'm kind of sad that the situation with my dad is the way it is. But I've decided that my husband and my child are more important now. If that means that we don't talk until the baby is born then I guess that's just how it's going to have to be. Things might right themselves in time. 

Well, it's time for me to take a nap before everybody arrives. I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know I will!

Family Member Profile-Kearrah

Name: Kearrah Alexis
Birthdate: June 5, 2005

Kearrah is one of the people located in a space deep within my heart. She is my little cousin and the oldest daughter of my first cousin, Audia. She's a sweetheart who just loves to give hugs and kisses. She wasn't always that way...she used to be wild, and unpredictably funny. But childhood hasn't really been easy for her. In my eyes, it's almost like her spirit has been broken. It's sad really, but she's doing good for what she has.

She loves Spongebob, iCarly, and other shows like that. She loves to spend time with her sister, Kya and taking care of her. Kearrah also has a broad imagination. One night she cooked Thankgiving dinner for me (pretend of course) and you should have seen that mind working! I had so many plate of fake food I didn't know what to do. 

KeKe is very smart and I have a feeling that despite what's happened in her past, she's going to go forward and do what she needs to do in life.

1. Went to see Happy Feet Two with Juan on Saturday. Had great music and animation as usual but the first movie was definitely better, I have to say. Also why does Mumble STILL have as much fuzzies on him as his son does?

2. While watching the movie, we had the best popcorn ever. It was a large covered in butter, then covered in nacho cheese seasoning and THEN covered all over with jalapeno's. My stomach argued with me later, but it was so worth it!

3. We saw Breaking Dawn right after Happy Feet. I don't know...hubby was in a movie mood. Was pretty good. I still like New Moon better than all of them.

3a. Breaking Dawn...definitely not for little ones. I was surprised by some of the more bloodier and intense scenes.

4.  Found out that hubby will not be joining me for Thanksgiving because he is going to Lubbock with his Mom and Dad. He's Mexican so his family doesn't really celebrate it. Which is fine, because since I do celebrate it, I'm staying for some turkey and dressing! Don't forget the cranberry sauce!

Not exactly what my family's dinner will look like...but close!
5. Finally got an appointment to see an OB by the name of Dr. Heather Neville. This will be the first doctor's appointment I get to go to. Hopefully everything is well with the baby and maybe we might even get to see what we're having! Is it a Sofia or a Nicolas?

More about the Writer

Yep, that's me!  Pretty nice looking woman if I should say so myself. :P

Well, where do I start? Well, let's start with what I know. I'm 26 years young and so far doing a pretty okay job at living this life. I can be a complex person if you don't really know me. At first glance, I'm probably looking like the world is crashing down on me. Believe me, most of the time , it's not. Depression has a grip on me pretty hard and I also have Aspergers. It's getting a lot easier to live with but it's definitely there. Once you get to know me, if I haven't made you laugh your head off yet, I haven't done my job. I can be quite goofy and at other times, quite sarcastic. Making people laugh makes me very happy.

I'm married to a wonderful man named Juan who to this day I'm convinced that God made for me. I'm not racist but I always wanted to be married to a Mexican man who loved me and took care of me. However, I never thought that my God man really existed. He's amazing and caring and just an angel. I love him like I love oxygen in my lungs. He is my king.

I was born to Tracy and Alton on July 17, 1985. It was an all right childhood. I wasn't a spoiled princess, but I was surrounded by a large loving family and you know sometimes, that's better than getting everything  you wanted. I was a happy child and I had quite an imagination. A trait I still have to this day. A trait I hope that I can pass on to my child as well.

I'm a writer of interracial erotic romance. I love knowing that love can exist beyond racial boundaries; I'm prime example of that and I want people to know that same feeling. I have several works in progress with chapters that I plan on putting on this blog. Once people read it they sometimes feel that they are inside the story alongside with the characters. That's my goal. I don't want people to just read my characters, I want to them to be best friends with my characters. It's going to be quite a journey.

Other than writing, I love music, singing, dancing and of course, writing and blogging about my life. I'm an avid gamer girl. I love Zelda, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and God of War. I've been playing since around eight or nine years old and I can probably play just as well as any guy. Just don't let me play any kind of shooting game cause I have really bad aim. 

Lastly, I'm happy to announce that my husband and myself are expecting our first child. He or she will grace us with their presence around May 8, 2012. I love that date because our baby will be a great Mother's Day gift. So as my pregnancy gets closer and closer each month, the big question is this: Am I afraid to be a mother? My answer is no, not really. I'm more afraid that I won't be a good mother. That I won't be able to give what my child deserves. But I think that with the help of Juan, I will be ok. We'll be okay and hopefully soon, we will be able to have a good house for the baby to grow up happy in. That's all I really could ask for right now at this moment.

My life's journey is still unknown in some places but with what I have going so far...I'm excited to know what's next and I plan to chronicle it as I grow and discover. I hope you all will join the ride with me.

My First Post

I don't really know what inspired me to write a blog. I guess probably the same reason for anybody else. Bloggers love to write about their lives; how extraordinary they are. I don't know what is going to happen in my own life, but so far in it, I have been blessed by the lord or as one of the characters in Madea's Family Reunion said, "divinely favored". God had given me a wonderful husband and now my child is on the way. That alone is a wonderful reason to write in a blog. I want to put everything I see and know in here and in doing so, this will give me a wonderful chance to grow on the inside and out.
