With the three day Labor Day weekend behind us, and a four day work week this week...HUMP day came a little faster this week. (no complaints here!). Every Wednesday a guy from my office comes in and recites the Geico Commercial word for word. I look forward to it each week because (1) its hilarious even after the millionth time and (2) it means it is one day closer to FRIDAY!

Once again I am linking up with Jenni for Blogtember. Today's topic is: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? This seems like it would be so easy to answer but than I start to think "only three months..ugh!" 

Isn't she adorable? 
One of the things that I want to be able to do (when I have a job that makes me lots of $$$ and time to take off work) is to travel. Since the time is no problem ( and ill pretend neither is the $$) I would make sure to cross some of my bucket list places off the list.  All over Europe? CHECK! Australia?  DOUBLE CHECK! My cousin lives in Australia and has the most adorable daughter who I miss more than anything! Having only met her once when they were here last year, I would make sure to take the majority of 3 months to spoil her rotten with attention and love to last a life time. She is growing up so fast and I don't like missing out on it. 

Besides travelling (which is what the majority of my bucket list consists of) I would want to just relax and love life. And not relax as in watch TV all day and eat anything I want. I mean just go some place with the people I love, no work stress, no drama and just chill out. I am an easygoing person and try to relax most of the time but knowing that I can no whatever I want for 3 months would be bliss. 

 I am interested in seeing what you all would do if you had three months of freedom. I leave you with that.

Once again..I disappeared from the blogging world for a short while. My bad. I have been busier at work (which I love) and when I get off..all I want to do is hang out w/ Sean, my friends or just plain relax. And since I think that you would get bored reading about me laying on the couch watching " Orange is the New Black" (which was Ahh-mazing!) ..I spare you the details. I am have a blogging block. I don't know what to write about!!! 

But then I stumbled upon Blogtember and I realized I found the solution to my problem. Jenni @ Story of my Life has come up with blog prompts for every weekday in Sept. so that us bloggers who find it difficult on certain days to come up with a topic will have something to write about! There are no real rules..if you skip a day you can make it up or just forget it. If you don't like a topic, then write about something else.It's simple, fun and helpful to someone like me! So without further adieu here is Sept. 3rd's topic : Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.

When people ask me where I am from..I say " Miami" because anyone that doesn't live under a rock knows where that is. But truthfully I am from a "small town" south of Miami called Homestead. Some people still know where that is because of the NASCAR Speedway or because it is the city right before you enter The Keys. I went to HS about twenty minutes away so I hung out more in Miami than I did in my small town. And I say small town lightly because Homestead transformed from when I was born to what it is now. Small towns to some mean no stop lights, dirt roads and farms. And Homestead used to be that way many years ago. But now there are houses everywhere, traffic almost as bad as Miami and mini malls being built every other day. Not that I don't miss Homestead but it isn't what it used to be. I love to go home and visit for a couple days and see the places that have been there for 20+years but I don't think I could ever move back home permanently. But its that "small town" feel, where you know your neighbors and you have friends who have lived there all their lives, that make me miss it from time to time. I haven't been home in 6 months (I am used to going home every other month) so I am desperately in need of a trip SOON! 

Besides where I came from...the people who I grew up around definitely are a HUGE part of who I am today. I lived within 30 mins of all my close relatives and just a couple blocks away from the only cousins I have. I lived in a single parent home and even though I saw my Dad more growing was always my mom, brother and I and than just my mom and I as my brother got older. She was and still is my best friend. I talk to her at least 2 times a day. Many would think it is crazy but I tell her so much about my life and it would feel weird to not talk to her every morning/night. Being so young when my parents divorced( I was 7) shaped me into the person I am today. Sometimes not for the best ( it makes it difficult to trust people when it comes to relationships etc.) but it has made me stronger, more independent and has made the bond between my mom and I so strong and I wouldn't change that for a second. 

So that's me...that's my past and how I came to be the girl I am today! I hope you join me and the rest of those who linked up w/ Blogtember.
