Hello and good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen! My mom and I had the honor of walking at the Avenue Fall 2014 Fashion Show! (We are going to have to put "Part-time Models" on our resumes LOL!) You guys may have seen photos of me modeling sportswear in previous shows, but I went with something different this time around. (My hairstyle was not intentional, by the way. I had it up in a bun, and when I tried to fix it, it had this nice, sleek look on the sides and curls in the back so I just left it like that.)
I am wearing:
Filigree Medallion Bib Necklace
Black Rhinestone Bangles
Striped Ruana with Toggle
Basic Seamfree Tank
Tummy Control Pull-On Pant
Sofia Cloudwalkers Comfort Wedge
My mom is wearing:
Filigree Leaf Rope Necklace
Black Rhinestone Bangles
Pleat Front Pocket Shirt
Ponte Knit Legging
Vienna Faux Suede Buckle Bootie
Check out the rest of the photos from the fashion show! :-)

Nobody is born into this world knowing the game of baseball. I had the opportunity of learning about baseball with my dad. When I was a little girl living in the Bronx, New York, my parents and I would go consecutively to a Yankees' game. I remember during one of those games, while I was looking at Derek Jeter at the Jumbotron, Jeter hit a fowl ball. Guess where that fowl ball went? I had no idea that I would be so close to a ball hit by Jeter's bat. My dad's fingernail broke the fowl ball's fall, but along with his fingernail, went the fowl ball rolling down the aisle. It was so upsetting letting that ball get away, but at least I have the memory of being close to that ball (thank God I did not get hit in the head!).
Thank you for serving my hometown for the past 20 years (Damn! That means I was 2 years old when Jeter became a Yankee. Wait... I was 2 years old when he became a Yankee. He is number 2. I am 22 years old now. Coincidence much? I think not!) Anyways... I literally balled my eyes out watching Jeter play at Yankee stadium for the last time. It is so sad (for us Yankees fans, at least) because the last O.G. standing has retired. There will never be another like Derek Jeter. The Yankees will always and forever be my hometown team, but they will never be the same. I have to get used to seeing the new players because there is no more Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettite, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter...
Thank you for everything that you have done for the Bronx and for others.

Happy birthday, Mom!
(Even though I ran into your room, jumped on your bed and told you this in person, I guess I will post it online for the record LOL!)
Another year older, another year wiser, and another year stronger. I am so fortunate to be able to celebrate yet another year of your life with you; not many kids get the same opportunity. I am very appreciative of the person that you are with me. You taught me right from wrong, lift me up when I am down, and support me with my ambitions of working for a police department one day. Today, in particular, is your special day (National Clara's [Birthday] Day LOL!), even though we celebrate life when we wake up everyday. You and I have the whole weekend to celebrate! I am going to be cake wasted! Yay LOL!
(FYI: You guys may have seen this video before, but it is the only video that I have (up to date) of me playing "Happy Birthday," so yeah... :-))
¡Feliz cumpleaños, mamá!
(A pesar de que me encontré con su habitación, saltó sobre su cama y le dije esto en persona, supongo que voy a publicar en línea para el registro LOL!)
Otro año más, otro año más sabio, y otro año más fuerte. Soy muy afortunado de poder celebrar un año más de su vida contigo; no muchos niños tienen la misma oportunidad. Estoy muy agradecida por la persona que usted está conmigo. Me enseñaste el bien del mal, me levantas cuando estoy abajo, y me apoyan con mis ambiciones de trabajar para un departamento de policía un día. Hoy, en particular, es su día especial ([Birthday] Nacional de Clara Día LOL!), A pesar de que celebramos la vida cuando nos despertamos todos los días. Usted y yo tenemos todo el fin de semana para celebrar! Voy a ser la torta desperdiciado! Yay LOL!
(FYI: Ustedes pueden haber visto este video antes, pero es el único video que tengo (hasta la fecha) de que yo juegue "Feliz Cumpleaños", así que sí ...:-))
