My Mom and I Walk at the Avenue Spring 2014 Fashion Show!

Hey guys! It has been a while since I posted something on my blog!

For those of you that have me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter, you guys read that my mom and I were a part of a fashion show for a second year in a row! I think we did a swell job, if I do say so myself! My mom and I pulled some moves during our catwalk (that is why some of the photos seem blurry LOL!).

I am wearing:
White Trim Aviator Sunglasses
Mesh Trim Yoga Jacket
Mesh Trim Yoga Pant
Andi Mesh Slip-On Sneaker

My mom is wearing:
Colorblock Sharkbite Tee
Pima Cotton Capri Legging
Doris Slip-On Canvas Sneaker

Check out the rest of the photos from the fashion show provided by my fabulous photographer/boyfriend (he and his mom were there to cheer us on!)! :-)

WARNING: Cuteness Overload!!!

My mom tells me (out of nowhere) that we became grandmas to... cute lil' ducklings! The momma duck has been nesting under a tree in our yard for probably the past 3 months. The eggs hatched about 2 days ago! Welcome to the world, babies!

Check out the rest of the photos and videos I captured of mama duck with her babies on my porch below! :-)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody!!!

It is a tradition in the Almodovar household to watch the crystal ball drop in Times Square for the New Year! Ugh, I am homesick!

Anyways... I am so proud to see a Bronx native like myself [Sonia Sotomayor] pressing the button for the crystal ball to drop! That must have been such an honor! She is truly an inspiration, and is now someone new I look up to. My goals for 2014 and in my future is to be as successful as she is. If she can do it, I can do it too! I am going to take this new year by storm, just you wait and see!

Check out some photos from our new year celebration below! :-)

*FYI: Do not mind my not-so-well-put-together-"all dolled up"-attire. I was in the comfort of my own home, therefore, I should be comfy, and boy was I!

Trapping a Possum in Our Backyard = SUCCESS!

We have a couple of pesky possums roaming throughout our property. One was trapped. Check out the rest of the photos below.

*P.S. No cruelty was done in the captivity of this animal.

Happy Sweet 16th Birthday, Alexandra! *<|:-)

Most, if not all of you, may be familiar to finding out you have more cousins, uncles, aunts, etc. in the family, right? That was my case a couple of months ago. I found out I have yet another cousin (no surprise there being in a Hispanic family LOL!). My first time meeting Alexandra was at the hospital because she was diagnosed with leukemia. Alexandra had one wish and that was to celebrate her Sweet 16. A VERY generous couple who has dealt with family members diagnosed with cancer and passing away felt the need to put together an extravagant party to make her wish come true. The couple did just that! Since Elizabeth is an event planner, she organized the whole event herself with donations given by other generous people. Everything turned out great! What was even greater was when my cousin's dad (my mom's cousin), who lives in Puerto Rico, walked through the doors. There was not a dry eye in the room LOL! In one of the videos, I recorded my mom crying her eyes out LOL! My mom, I and everyone else who was in on the surprise had to keep it a surprise until the party. Who ever said I cannot keep a secret? LOL! More videos and photos will be uploaded soon! Check back for updates.

Happy Sweet 16th Birthday, Alexandra! *<|:-)

Woman Chased From University Square Mall Into Pond; Does Not Resurface!

Anywhere there are popos, I am there (seriously LOL!)!

I was running errands with my mom on my day off when I came across this! My mom and I have been hearing helicopters surround Univeristy Mall since 1 PM (this situation was not occurring at that time, I assume This began like at 4 PM). When we got closer to Burlington's parking lot, the helicopter was so close, I saw the pilot's headset!

It turns out that a girl was caught shoplifting from either Sears or Burlington. When security found out, the girl dropped what she had stole and was chased out the store. When running out the store, the girl ran toward the pond where she never resurfaced. Two other girls that were with her were in custody. I do not know what will happen to them.
