Love letter... sort of.

This is what my boyfriend wrote about me for his spanish class:

"My girlfriend is Sofia. She is a good person. Sofia is a nice, caring person. She works very hard at college to be a nurse. Sofia was born in Ecuador. Sofia and I both like watching football and both favor the Eagles. She likes to watch TV and movies with me. She works part-time getting experience in the nursing field. Sofia is the type of person that is liked by everyone. She wants to travel. Sofia likes animals like my puppy Odie. She also wants a Coach bag. Sofia is an amazing person and that is why I love her."

Isn't it the cutest thing???

I think so!

Love you too babe!

Eva Longoria and Hilda Solis Make Appeal to Latina Vote

Chicago, IL - This Thursday afternoon, actress Eva Longoria and Congresswoman Hilda Solis (D-CA) jointly discussed the importance of voter registration and voter turnout among Latinas, and underscored the critical role that women’s issues will play in the upcoming election.

“Barack Obama has been helping progress women’s issues for many, many years as a state senator,” Congresswoman Solis stated, a long-time advocate of women’s rights from the Hill. She went on to emphasize that today, women across America make 70 cents to the dollar relative to the average American male. Even more outrageous, Hispanic women make 53 cents to the dollar relative to the average American male. “We need a fighter like Barack Obama. We need to have someone in the White House that will fight for us to provide good medical coverage, will advocate protecting a woman’s right to choose, and help us push crucial women’s rights legislation through Congress,” Solis emphasized.

“We need to get everyone registered to vote, and I can’t emphasize that enough,” actress Eva Longoria declared. In 2004, the democrats lost Nevada by only 20,000 votes, Florida by 380,000 votes, and New Mexico by only 6,000 votes. Currently, there are 68,000 unregistered Latino voters in Nevada, 500,000 in Florida, and 170,000 in New Mexico. Longoria encouraged everyone to register using the quick, bilingual, and easy to use voter registration site, www.voteforchange.com. “A lot of people I’ve met didn’t know that there were registration deadlines, thus they lost the opportunity to participate in the election.” Voter registration deadlines are fast approaching.

When Longoria is off the screen, she is on the trail. While many recognize her for her leading role in ABC’s Desperate Housewives, she has been leading a politically active life for over decades. Longoria’s interest in politics stemmed from when she was only 17, when her high school was recruiting for volunteers for the 1992 Clinton campaign. “I remember being thoroughly depressed because I was only 17, and could not vote. Since then, I have campaigned for several democratic campaigns.” Longoria campaigned for Gore in 2000, Kerry in 2004, and for Proposition 87 in California. The actress grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, with her Mexican-American parents who were never very politically active. “If people take the time to understand the [electoral] process, it is amazing how much difference one person can make.”

Longoria also expressed her views on Republican vice presidential candidate, Governor Sarah Palin. “I’m very confused by the women who have turned their support to Palin because Hillary did not get on the ticket. Palin, for me, represents everything Hillary is not. I don’t know how a woman can support someone who does not support equal pay for women, or the right to choose.” Longoria, a Clinton supporter during the primaries, whole-heartedly turned her support to Obama after he won the party’s nomination. If you’re supporting Palin because she’s a woman and you’re a woman, then that’s the wrong reason to do it,” Longoria proclaimed.

Congresswoman Solis addressed the fact that Senator Obama’s values are closely aligned with those of the Latino community. “Like many Hispanics and Latinos, Obama is the son of immigrants, he is very proud of his family, and he is the father of two young girls. He shares many values with the Latino community.”

In closing, Solis specifically addressed Latina women voters, saying, “If you want good healthcare coverage for you and your family, if you want economic stability, and if you want help in sending your children to college, then support Barack Obama.”

Good game... so far!

PETA... are you out of your mind???? "Breast is best"

Check this site out.

Done reading that???
Can you believe they want Ben&Jerry, one of the best ice creams made in the world!, to use breast milk instead of cow's milk???????????????????????????????

They claim that it is "mean" to take away milk from baby cow's and so they should use breast milk!

So what I have to say to that (as a student nurse and future RN): what about the babies that actually NEED the breast milk???????? Breast milk is the very best for babies to be able to build up their defenses in their early baby life! It's just crazy! Crazy crazy crazy!

I am all for no animal cruelty and not wearing fur but come on PETA!!!!!!! You guys went WAAAAAAAAAY too far on this one!

And PETA wants them to name it "Breast is best".... !!!!!! What!?!?!?!

Seriously, this is the most stupid idea I have heard all year. haha
This is the actual letter:

September 23, 2008
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, CofoundersBen & Jerry's Homemade Inc.
Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,
On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's. Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers--and cows--would reap the benefits.
Using cow's milk for your ice cream is a hazard to your customer's health. Dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, constipation, obesity, and prostate and ovarian cancer. The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it may play a role in anemia, allergies, and juvenile diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease--America's number one cause of death.
Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Like all mammals, cows only produce milk during and after pregnancy, so to be able to constantly milk them, cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months. After several years of living in filthy conditions and being forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally, their exhausted bodies are turned into hamburgers or ground up for soup.
And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.
The breast is best! Won't you give cows and their babies a break and our health a boost by switching from cow's milk to breast milk in Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Tracy ReimanExecutive Vice President


Wow. I read it and thought "Ok it is cruel what they do to the animals... but it's like you said: you are taking precious milk from babies who need it! Why don't you think about the HUMAN babies that need their mother's milk???"

Well word of mouth says that B&J said thanks, but no thanks to PETA's idea... THANK GOD!!!!!!
Darn Switzerland for starting this restaurant menu!

Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning

Sorry for the appearance! I really don't care what I look like to my toilet bowl! I'm there to clean it not do a catwalk! =)
Don't be afraid to show your ugly side once in awhile! I obviously am not scared of doing that!
Check my vlog out:

This the product I have (and LOVE btw!) and show on the vlog.

And these are the other products they have:

I actually want to try to get the toilet bowl cleaner because the one I am using right now... it just doesn't cut it for me. I am hoping that it is a gel because I have tried other toiler bowl cleaners that were gels and they worked fantastic! SO will be checking on that! I found another interesting blog about this... check it out here.

Procrastinating homework!

P.S. Only thing that sucks is that when it comes up on my blog it looks like i sent it with pictures but i didn't... wonder why??? I need to get myself a blackberry curve! I think those work better than my old, beat up phone! About 9 months to go until I can change phones! Yay!

First day of fall... it came... now it is gone

I am sitting here sweating my butt off!
It's so hot in my bf room! I have sweats and a t-shirt on and he already took away the AC. This stinks!

I like the google.com image for today. Isn't it pretty? I think it is!
Yet it does not feel like fall weather yet! Crazy!

Videotaping


The worst! Ugh!


I hate taping skills for class because it's just very nerve racking! Ugh! Way to start fall!!!!!!!!!!!


Other than that not much has being going on.


Have to catch up on lots of homework that I have due this week. I have to do quizzes

and a concept map of a chronic patient.

I also have to vlog since I haven't done one in awhile...

Well I am so not liking facebook right now. It looks so different and stupid. I'm so lost! I haven't logged on to that because I just don't want to. Too much crap to update as it is. I like blogging better than dealing with facebook.

I usually just look into them to see if a friend has said hi that I haven't seen in awhile. It was giving me a headache so I logged off. I like this better. Blogger is way better! haha

And then there is myspace where I don't the people who request to be my friend... its weird.

Ok I'll go for now...

Coco Chanel

I just found a great site about Coco.
Here is the book:

The movie is going great! What a fantastic and interesting woman!

I still love her perfume:

It just smells elegant. A lot of people (esp. my dad) says it's for old women. Screw that! It's amazingly delicious, elegant and refreshing!

That's just me.

Wal-mart trip

So Wal-Mart is one of our favorite places to go to (we go at the very least once a week... no lie!) Hence, these are some pics from trips to a wal-mart. I love the shirt my bf has on because it's just so cute! Isn' it??? Well I think so anyway!
I had heard about this product and wanted to see how it works and well... its pretty awesome. It's all natural so it's good for the environment and it works great on cleaning my sink to my floor. I just got the spray but there are products for cleaning your toilet and everything around the house. So if you want to be environmentally minded: get this product! It's not strong even though it's clorox product so I love that!
And on to the halloween aisle we went! Can you believe they are having candy for halloween already????? I mean it's only the beginning of September for crying out loud!!!
I got this OFF! product because my aunt and I have gotten bitten so much that we need extra products to rid off bugs! So since we're going out this weekend we can use this! It's supposed to not be greasy and water-resistant. We'll see how that goes!
I absolutely love these wipes!!!!!!!! I have become such a neat freak and these wipes help clean up messes and leave a great fresh clean smellbehind! And it is not strong either! Plus I don't need to use soap and water it just pops up and I take one. They are incredible! I first saw them on TV and wanted to try them! I tried the orange tub first and loved it - so of course I saw this 2-in-1 which all together has 150 wipes and I went right for them! I love them! I completely recommend them!


Well I 'll end with cute pics of Odie (the pup), my bf and I:



Aren't we all cute???

FYI: That is a dress I am wearin' and I love it because it is simple and comfy! I love dresses again!

Oh I have to get some pics of the shoes I got at the VF outlet the other day!

OK. GTG.

Work is a calling!

Thursday

A few things... well maybe more!

So I had to get gas and was waiting for the price to go down that my gas tank got really low!
As you can obviously see:
But shockingly there was no light that went off at that point because that pic was taken as I was driving into a gas station. It was worth it. The price dropped down 3 cents from when I was going to get it. So... yeah.
Anyway, this is my beautiful boyfriend:
We went to a Target that had these really interesting balls outside of it and he was fascinated by them (as was I mind you!). So I decided to take a pic of him. Of course there is a shadow so you can't see him real well! Plus I didn't have my digital camera so I took it with my camera phone!

Well I worked a few extra hours this past Sunday and I was falling slowly in love with this lotion:
It is from Bath & Body Works. It's called: Rice Flower and Shea
It was delicious. Every time I went past it or washed my hands, which I do frequently when I work there, I put some on. It was awesome! When my Warm Vanilla Sugar is gone, I will have to see about getting this one! Yum!

So I have been wanting to go to the outlet stores around my area, and I finally went to one the other day. It wasn't as great as I had hoped it would be. I hope the other one that I go to is a lot better. This is just one of the branches of VF outlet stores so I'll update on others as we go there!
As I had said, my cousin is here from my lovely country of Ecuador and my aunt had wanted to rent movies for her to see. SO here we were in Blockbuster and she has all these horror flicks sprawled over the floor which made me want to take a pic because she is just too cute and funny to have done that! I am so going to miss her!

Well that's all on these pics. Have more to update on so will write in a bit!
See ya!
