Monday Motivation

Good Morning all my sleepy heads!

This week is going to be very important for me. I have a FIDM alumni networking event on Saturday. So this week I’m going to be polishing up my resume, portfolio and even my website.

I plan on getting some new business cards printed and giving out Modern Meow stickers. It’s going to be so much fun seeing college friends while sippin some bubbly.

So to celebrate new changes and mercury going into retrograde, I wanted to share this quote. Hopefully this sets the tone for the rest of the week.

What separate’s you from everyone else is determination.

Sending everyone some positives vibes to kick ass. Happy Monday!!!

Crazy Meat Market

Something I love doing is going to crazy Asian markets with my BF. We call them treat adventures. Usually we are looking for great deals on young coconuts because who doesn’t like fresh coconut water. When we do this we go to places like Westminster or Rosemead.

This time we were on our way back from San Diego and decided to stop by Westminster for our usual Asian treats. But what astonished me was the kind of meat or shall I say organs that they carried.

There was pork heart, pork snout, pork uterus and pork stomach. Personally I was so fascinated by it. My BF and his mom couldn’t help but laugh at my reaction.

That by far has been the best Asian market experience. Just the fact that I know how these organs actually look like blows my mind. Like where can you find pork uterus…not ralphs or whole foods that is for sure.

This weekend is the UFC 196 and I’m beyond excited for that! I cannot wait to see Holly and Miesha fight but the main card is going to a crazy one as  well.  You can tell by logo that I’m team McGregor.

Have a fun weekend!

Family Weekend

Happy Monday Everyone

Can you believe Ronda got knocked out!!! hahaha Sorry I just couldn’t wait to share with you my amazement for KO.

This weekend was pretty amazing considering what I was doing. On Saturday was my grandma’s birthday. Our whole family came together to throw her a party. I rarely get to see my whole family together, so when we are the whole house is full of laughter, love and memories. My godfather made my favorite food which was birria de res and my godmother made the rice and beans.

Let me tell you that the food was perfection! Everything was on point and you could taste all the hard work put into it. I was extremely grateful that they made all the food for our hungry family.

After we ate all the men in my family including my boyfriend were doing everything to make sure that we got to see the fight. They finally got it and everything was at ease. Then of course we lose the stream connection and miss the Ronda Rousey fight with Holly Holms. All we heard was the reaction from my cousins phone since he still had a steam connection.

Before we rushed home to see how Ronda lost, we sang my grandma Happy Birthday. I wanted to buy her this special Lotus Musical Candle I saw. I thought it was so amazing that my grandma deserved it. With the stress of almost burning the house down I asked my sister to record everything. The next day I finally saw the video and the excitement and happiness I saw on her face was absolutely priceless. It made my day knowing that she felt like the Queen she is.

When we got home we saw the whole thing and it was amazing! I loved how humble and truly overjoyed Holly was for winning the title. Seeing her dominate Ronda was beautiful and so magical. You could really tell that she was in her zone.

I know I can’t wait to see her next fight and see her grow as an MMA fighter.

 

Have an amazing Monday!

It’s FRIDAY!!

This morning I woke up so happy its finally FRIDAY! I love when the weekend comes so quickly because I get to just relax and go on adventures with MLB. I know that I’m really excited this weekend because of two reason. Number one it is my grandma;s birthday so we are having a family party with a lot of amazing food!!! Reason number two Ronda Rousey is fighting on Saturday. Now I am not a huge fan of hers but I respect her and what she is capable of. She has this Floyd Mayweather personality that I don’t like so I am rooting for Holly Holm. I really want her to win not only because she is an amazing boxer but I feel like she has the potential to actually beat Ronda.

Here is some of my favorite music that captures my excitement for this weekend! Hope you guys enjoy!
