Follow along


Its been a long time a since Ive been on here and I want to say that I'm going to be better and say all these wonderful things like I'm going to be better but honestly I don't know Im busy already and about to  be even more busy. Before I reveal the news I want to say that I'm going to do my best and try to write on here regularly but I can't promise anything, with that being said I am proud to say that I am going to offically finish cosmetology school at a beautiful wonderful private academy that is just so perfect for me! I start offically on December 11th but I am preparing myself now.

I am a bit nervous I haven't been away from reina for more than a few hours at a time since she was born and although the school is only three days a week they are 10 hour days so long story short I think the first week is gonna be rough and I'm sure I'm gonna cry. It'll all be worth it though I'm looking toward the future for my family and myself. I am very excited, nervous, anxious and sad. I am trying to sift through all these emotions and trying to just be happy. Don't get me wrong I am just all these other feelings are clouding it. I'm sure when I start I'll be super happy!!

So I was thinking as I learn some cool facts, ideas, tips and tricks I'd share them with you all so I'm hoping thats something you'll be interested in. I will also be sharing my family life and being a mom, baking so everything. I also am going to be trying to add more videos on youtube. (username: hairandmakeuphowto) So we shall see how this all goes.

I hope you all have a great and wonderful day!!

Date night

Ahhh date night. My wife and I don't get very many of these with out baby girl, which we don't mind, but it's nice to have time for just the two of us sometimes we get to talk to each other and enjoy alone time.
We went to old Chicago, I had a salad and chicken Mac n cheese it was yummy and Tiffany had steak I think it was ok because she didn't boast about it but she ate it. We each had a drink I had a sunset something it was fruity of course and babe had a crown royal and coke her signature drink. We enjoyed our time together and we are thankful for nana and poppy watching her.

I know I know I've been gone its been a long time since I last filled you in. There is so much going Reina is growing so fast, I am starting school in two weeks, we are looking to buy a house, I am booking more photo shoots! I am super excited about it all but super nervous too.

Reina is so smart! She can already pull herself up on things and I think she may just skip crawling she goes it but very rarely she rather be up. She recognizes Mickey mouse on the tv and claps quietly when she sees him. She is getting better on the car she doesn't cry as much. She knows where the baby's are in the books she laughs when she sees them.

I am very nervous about school I am taking 3 classes and I feel like that's a lot but with receiving financial aid you have to have a minimum of 6 credits so I'm stuck. I know I can do it I just have to get down to business. I will update you all for sure.

About the house this is a love hate thing. I love the idea of getting a house and hate they we have to move in with my parents.. There is no room for us all and our stuff it's hard

I have more to say but I'm going to get to bed night night

Restaurant Review: Tacos Atoyac

So my wife and I really love mexican food and especially little hole in the wall places. My mom had found  Tacos Atoyac in the Phoenix magazine, and pointed it out. With Tiffany working so much we hadn't had time to go but my mom and I have and we are in love!!!

Reina loves their coke in a bottle!

my mom trying to figure out the camera haha

Their Guacamole sauce is delicious and spicy too its a perfect addition to their $1 tacos!

My mom got one lengua taco which she said was great!

My mom got their fish tacos which she fell in love with

I got the chicken tacos and I have to admit I have not tried anything else because when I find something I really like I tend to not change it up but I plan on trying something new next time!

They also give you a side of onions and peppers that are to die for! These onions are seriously grilled to perfection! I even got extra last time and ate some by themselves!

Our whole spread. AMAZING!

I took a few pictures of the inside so you could see its very simple which I like they focus more on creating a welcome atmosphere with talking to you and making you feel relaxed rather than have a lot of overhead non-sense. Its great! Dan (one of the owners) is so warm, and welcome he really knows how to make you feel comfortable.

I love churros they are one of my favorite desserts (my sister and I are churro snobs) and they really know how to make them taste great! The sauce is the icing on the cake! ;)

I really give them a thumbs up and 5 stars they are overall great!

DIY camera bag

This is how I converted my ugly, plain camera bag into a cute and fashionable one!
I used the Nikon camera bag that came with my camera as seen below

So I converted that bag into this one!

Step 1:
Empty out the entire bag 

Step two:
Cut off the flap on top with the yellow trim

I cut as close as I possibly can (there are a few bits left but I'm not worried about it)
If you wanted to get closer you could use a actual razor blade

Step 3:
Cut off the strap (you can leave this on if you want to be able to remove your bag and carry it around set I however did not need to)

Step 4: 
Remove clips from front of bag

I chose to take these off by just undoing the strap rather than cut it off in-case I needed to re-attach them for another reason.

Step 5:
Grab your bag (make sure the size is right)
and clean it out completely

Step 6:
Insert the black bag into your bag of choice

Step 7:

Insert spacers to best fit your items

 Step 8:

Add all of your camera(s) and accessories!

I tried to label everything so you could see how much extra room I had and I still have plenty of room to add other things.

Hope you enjoyed this post!!

Big girl

Reina Jean is just shy of 6 months but she sure isn't acting like it (acting older). Today she had a huge moment and crawled a little bit on her hands AND knees!! She has been doing the army crawl for about 4-5 weeks and she just finally got up on her knees and moved forward a bit. It's still a bit shakey but she will get better I am so happy and excited!! My little baby girl is growing up so fast!!

This was just one of videos I caught I hope you all enjoy I was soo thrilled I almost cried!
I love my baby girl and she is growing up so fast!
