Sooooo it’s been a little over 2 months since my last post! But as they say….Times Flies When You’re Having Fun!!!!
Besides being busy with work and my rigorous daily traveling via the Madrid Public Transport systems, I did take time to:
a) Celebrate my 27th Birthday
(I can’t believe another year has gone again!!!! I moved to Madrid when I was 23!!!! Holy Shizzzzzzz!!!!!!)
b) Have my Mom and Grandma over for a 2 week visit over Easter break and the week following it.
I hadn’t seen my Mom in about 2 and a half years….and I hadn’t seen my Grandma in almost 4 YEARS!!!!!!!
Soooo it was nice to have them here….of course the usual occurs when family stays with you for a long time….they do get on your nerves, buuuuut that’s what family members are for!
I have come to the conclusion after this trip that my Grandma Shirley is AWESOME!!!!!
And I’m A LOT LIKE HER!!!!!!!!
Things I’ve learned from my Grandma over this little 2 week trip…
*Drink a Beer or a Glass of Wine Everyday…..Not because you’re an alcoholic (1 is enough really) buuuuuut because you DESERVE IT!!!!
*Be Feisty and Let People Know What You Think and Have NO REGRETS about What You Say or Do!
*Eat Ice Cream and Dark Chocolate EVERYDAY!!!! Why????…..WHY NOT, is the correct response to that question.
*Take Pictures of Hot Waiters aaaaand call them Hot in front of them even though they don’t understand you. 😉
*Act like a child while at the beach….picking seashells never gets old!!!!!
*Be Active!!!…because the moment you stop, your age might catch up with ya and you won’t feel as young as you really are.
*When someone won’t give you their attention…..a little ‘YOO-HOO!’ and a lil wave of the hand works wonders!!!!!! 😉
*Stop Your Bitchin’ and Be Grateful For What You Have!
*Work Hard…Always! Cause If You Don’t Work Hard You Have NO RIGHT To Complain!!!!
*You don’t need much in this world to be happy…Some Food, Friends, Family, A Roof Over Your Head and Some Clothes on Your Back…..everything else are extras that make the ice cream even sweeter….but plain vanilla, chocolate or strawberry is alright with me!
And what I’ve learned from my mother is…..
*I love her and I’m so grateful for her….buuuuut she is her father’s daughter and I am my father’s daughter which makes us Day and Night. And although she might drive me bonkers after 3 or 4 days together, she is still my Mom! 😉
I hope you’ve enjoyed my pics….I’m getting ready for some new reviews! From Valencia, Barcelona, Santander and Madrid.
Happy Spring to All My Readers!!! 🙂
