Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday! No matter what your holiday is a time to celebrate!! Oh *NSYNC you guys just know how to bring out the joy in all!!!

For those that don’t know, us Hispanics celebrate Christmas Eve… Christmas Day is just a day for leftovers and us chillin out maxin and relaxing all cool just shooting some B-Ball outside of the school… sorry sorry I went to far with that one. 

So Christmas Eve my family and I dressed in onesies: I was Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, my brother was Batman. My cousin was Pikachu, my mom was a Snowman and my dad was some green thing we thought maybe a caterpillar but as the night progressed he started looking more and more like a pea pod. Any who we played Midnight Taboo and it was the funniest shit ever! My dad is fucking HIGHlarious! This guy was playing three games in one. If my brother couldn’t guess what he was trying to say he would start playing Taboo Espanish mixed with a little bit of charades. It was magical!

Today Christmas morning I’m here in my room listening to my new record player… watching my cousin play on my PS4 and my brother lay on my watching videos waiting for 12 to come so me and my fam can go watch Assassins Creed! YAAAASSSS!!! Well that’s all I have for today I’m gonna go stuff my face and listen to some of my Vinyls!

Four Course Meal!! And Some Dessert!

I’ve finally done something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time! I had my first FOUR course meal and it was just as freaking magical as I thought it would be! “But Emily where and how did you get this magnificent dinner? Did you go on a date with a super fancy Doctor…Lawyer…Super Rich Guy… Derek Jeter?” You ask. Weeeeeellll no it wasn’t a date but I’m flattered you think it was any of those four options. How I had this magical journey of food was through my jobs Christmas Dinner! I was living the fancy life on Friday night people!!!

My night started off like this… I walked into this beautiful restaurant called Grissini. As my coworkers and I walked through the restaurant towards our seating area our nostrils were basking in all the wonderfully delicious smells. When we got to our reserved room we saw the beauty that awaited us. Looking around I noticed names situated on different tables and as I walked through the room I found my name beautifully printed in black (please see picture below as reference). As I sat in my seat I noticed the menu on my plate (also see same picture below as reference) and the page was filled with such deliciousness. While I sat talking to my coworkers a waiter came and asked us what we would like to drink (thank god he started at the other end of my table because once I heard people ordering alcoholic beverages I was like HELL YES!! If he would’ve started with me I would’ve just gotten water and what a waste of free alcohol that would’ve been). I told our waiter, Michael Angelo (might or might not be his real name… or maybe just one of those names is his real name… you shall never know!! Bwuhahahaha) that I’ll have a glass of… Riesling (I know fancy as fuck right). As the night progressed and meal after meal was placed in front of me I thought to myself… DAAAAYUMMM I need to do this shit more often. 

And that is how I Emily had my fanciest moment thus far… hopefully there’s some more fancy coming my way… nah mean!

The End.

Love Ya from the Moon and Back,
Emily ( I now know how people can do multiple courses… the food comes in rather small portions… but I’d still do that shit again!)

Ballet Watching 101!

Cinderelly CinderellyNight and day it’s Cinderelly

Make the fire!

Fix the breakfast!

Wash the dishes!

Do the mopping!
I just saw my first ballet and it was Cinderella!!! I loved it! It was so beautiful and the colors of the costumes were magical. The best part is we had box seating!!! BOX SEATING!!! Yes we were one of those fancy people. I felt a little bit like Viv (Julia Roberts) from Pretty Woman minus the whole prostitution thing and the really rich handsome dude named Edward (Richard Gere). I went with my momma, I had bought these tickets for her birthday and she freaking loved it, Soooooo basically It’s a fact that I am her favorite child! YAAAASSSS! 

If you ever want to go see a ballet I have a couple of tips for you:

1/2. The correct way to pronounce ballet is Baa Let… don’t let others steer you wrong… bwuhahahaha (this is my evil laugh… also I was too lazy to move the numbers around so that’s where the half came from).

1. You should probably dress a little fancy, like where the jeans The don’t have those rips on them. There were a lot of people in full blown gowns for this show. Meanwhile me and my mom are in jeans and a sweater thinking nobody is going to come that dressed up for a show at 3 o’clock in the afternoon!! We were WRONG!

2. Be prepared to spend roughly $21.15 actually $22.15 (I tipped a dollar I know i know I’m super generous) on two mini bottles of Sprite, a bag of skittles and Welch’s fruit snack (Horse manure!!!).

3. You will see lots of bulges (you know man parts in tights) and wedgies! WOW!!! That’s all I have to say!

4. You will leave there believing you can do all those moves just as beautifully, but you can’t Emily!!! You’re not properly trained so stop it or you will break your fucking toes, ankles, snap your Achilles basically anything that makes up your foot! Just stop it Emily!

5. Lastly be prepared for a lot of clapping!!! There is more clapping in ballet than in any sporting event. My arms and hands are sore from clapping so much. I’m surprised I can even type this right now!
Well there you go I hope these tips help anyone who wants to see a ballet!

Emily ( future ballet star!! Nah never mind I don’t have the balance or grace for that!)
