EXCITING DAY, I'm a lucky winner of Blog Award!

I've been chosen by Laura from as one of the top 5 winners of Blog Award and I can't be grateful enough. Thank you Laura!

So these are the rules that I and my chosen bloggers have to play by:

1) choose 5 bloggers who I think are also worthy of this award to pass it on to

2) List 10 things about myself that others don't know

3) Post a quote

4) Now I can post the award on my blog and a link back to the person who chose me!

It is really difficult to choose only 5 blogs, but I'll do my best!

These are my choices:

1. Jennifer This blog is neat! I always see something interesting, nice pics, colors and perfect size posts!

2. Ana You can see how this blogger is very commited! I like people who post about their real lives!

3.Tracy Revell Tracy Revell's got great potential! She's a new blogger but I can see her getting tons of followers, I really like her posts!

4. Rachel She was one of my first followers. I love her posts and the angle she looks at life from. I check often!

5. Helen E. H. Madeen I met Helen in twitter, then I found her blog which is shared with other authors. It's very interesting as I am quiet open minded - for adults only.

Check out these amazing authors! They are all so unique and interesting to follow!

10 secret facts about me.... Not that nobody knows, lol

1. I have 2 first names but I'm only called by the second one, so if someone mentions my first name I won't ever notice that they are calling me.

2. I got married in flip flops and summer clothes and so did my husband.

3. I am so petite that when I shop for my little nieces I always buy for myself too; at those kid's stores!

4. I lived in Paris for 6 months and didn't learn French. Damn it!!!

5. When I give "thumbs up" my thumbs bend back so much that people look at me weird!

6. I want to have 5 kids-like my parents did- it's so much fun now that we are all grown ups! My parents agree on that one.

7. I make the best guacamole in the world, so if I ever invite you to my place don't refuse!!!

8. I'm 26 and I get asked for ID everywhere I go. I wonder if I'll freak out when that stops happening, lol.

9. When I was a kid I wanted to learn English so bad that I used to write words from movies in a notebook: just how they sounded to me and then pick up the meaning right from the subtitles!

10. I used to model when I was 20-21 years old. backkkk on those years, sigh, lol.

Let's see, now I have to write a quote, that's a hard one but let's try!

When you expect it the least is when the rabbit jumps! - Dont know who came up with that one, and it comes from Spanish language but I suits many of us when we think we can -actually- plan anything... life waits to surprise you! :)
