I love the rain...

Kissing in it, even better.
It's raining here...

so, please excuse me.
I shall return tomorrow. ;)

For my Momma's 60th Birthday

This is the add we are going to put in the newspaper to surprise her. We even requested they place it on the page before the word puzzle and scramble, which she does EVER DAY.

My momma always loved the story Cinderella, and jokes she IS a cinderella. :) Every time she tells us stories of her childhood, she always starts with, "Once upon a time, there was a little girl in the Philippines..."

*I am in love with the job Twinkie's super sweet co-worker Laura did on designing the graphic--- not that I should be, she's an AMAZING artist. Check her work out here. :)

Happy 100 Obama Days!!!

sent this email to my family
(and since you're my family too) :

Nakita sent me this pic and it MADE MY DAY!!!!

love you all!!
Mickey xo

ps. Also--- HOW ABOUT MY MAVERICKS!?!?!!?! :) They defeat the Spurs in the first round series!!!!!

we made vegetarian sloppy joe's on onion rolls, hot chips, and maybe one beer to celebrate the WIN we KNEW would come!!!!

ps. It's going to be SUCH a great Wens! it was dark outside and the rain poured from the heavens!!! this is my kinda weather. I just wish i wasn't stuck at my desk and out on our porch watching it instead.

it was a breath of sunshine.

I've been meaning to blog about this sundance indie winner. We went awhile back and absolutely loved it. It was the best impromptu date. I loved Emily Blunt in "The Jane Austen Club" and Amy Adams in "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day" and they really really impressed me together on the big screen as sisters.

It would have to be believable because it is about sisters. I wished i had seen it with my seester. In fact, we have plans to see it-- i loved it that much.

Key parts that i loved if you've seen it, and i won't say enough if you haven't ;) for my favorite parts: Train and Questioning a Choice.

Go see "Sunshine Cleaning." You won't be disappointed.

this ship was made to sink.

it was the lyric that was playing as we sat in your car.
i think if you listened closely enough, you could have heard my heart breaking
over the music
that described me.

my heart is locked.

you hold the key and you don't even realize it.

Hugs to you all lovies, on this Friday! Have a sweet sweet weekend xo

I wanna always dance with you.

Weddings. In stores. To the bar's juke box. At home... especially at home...

EVEN IF you look like this ;)
cos frankly, i don't have boobs like that.

sweet kisses

because I have been SO BUSY and unable to comment to all my little blog babies out there-- and God knows I'm thankful for *each and every one of you lovies* cos it's not like i have 10 loyal readers ;)

I'm thinking of you. I am.
Work has been busy busy busy this month!

I took this for the boy after a big road project FINALLY opened in my little Texas town. I held the ribbon like vanna white before the motorcycle cops drove through and marked the grand opening. Now everyone can get to Walmart faster from the main street. I know, right?

let's catch up soon! xo

Happy Administrative Professionals Day!

As you know, I work in PR and I had no idea people actually celebrated the holiday formally known as Secretary's Day. This morning, my brother Marco texted me to wish me that, along with Earth Day.

When I got to work, I had flowers delivered as a joke (but sweet joke) from my sweet friends-orchestrated by my BFF Maria. One time when me, Maria, and Erik were walking around the lake, Erik was asking me what I did. Maria said, "You're a secretary" and I tried telling her that I did more than that but she goes, "Do you answer phones?" ha. She was joking but I got offended :)

So today, they surprised me with flowers as a peace offering and to make my day. :) My boss was like, "You aren't a secretary!" still, maybe my boss felt bad she didn't get me anything because she came back from lunch with a notebook pad with my initial. :) I felt LOVED today.

IT TOTALLY CAUGHT ME OFF-GUARD!!! REALLY! which was the best! I have honestly never been surprised, but I was surprised nicely today. The best feeling!

Happy Administrative Professionals Day
+ Earth Day to you all lovies!!! xo

i wish i could translate my heart for you.

Surtout, surtout, ne pas tomber amoureuse.

*lovely french quote from this lovely blog i'm head over heels with.

Rock of Love Bus Tour... rolling right at me!

Sexy Bret Michaels is coming to Oklahoma for a "Sock'Em Rock'Em" weekend. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!! :)

i admit, I've never really watched his reality show or listened to Poison back in the day... BUT, the chance of meeting a famous man whore?! I'M THERE!!! ha!!! I'm totttttally excited. Rounding all my friends and we're going to rock out! of course darling friend says "general admission" is good enough... though secretly i'm wanting VIP. ;)

*my co-worker just told me I better not get on that bus! haha

dallas, until we meet again... yours truly, micaela xo

This weekend i had TONS of fun out by Lake Grapevine and in Addison with the birthday girl, the beautiful model friend of mine, Nakita. I mean look at her!!!

there was some drinking involved... ;)
non-stop partying as soon as we got there at 8pm.
Nakita was my older sister's best friend in high school. I can remember her coming over when I was in 2nd grade. Who would have thought that she would fly down from Washington to spend her birthday weekend with me years later? :) it's because we're family.

I adore her and her friends!!!!
Washington/NYC here we come!!!

Seven Pounds. *SPOILER ALERT

we FINALLY saw this movie last week, after a million times trying to go see it while it was out at the cinema. Something always came up, so I had been dying to see it for awhile. I loved it.

I don't want to spoil it for any of you who haven't seen it yet (and why haven't you!?) but i loved Rosario's character (she had a vegetarian dog too!!! i wanted to make maverick one ha).

I loved when she called Will Smith's character, Ben, from her hospital bed because she couldn't sleep.

Two parts really pulled at my heart. "What are the chances?" -- he was so desperate to hear something else. I was too.

But my favorite part... my favorite part is "the what if game."

Sleepy Sleepy Monday.

Lovies, I had a FABULOUS weekend!!! SO much to tell.
But it will have to wait...

Busy at work.
A little hungover :(
Drinking coffee, but it's so not helping :) what's a cure blog babies?

i will leave you for a bit with this celeb gossip that makes me happy. There's going to be a BABY GREY!!! Well, for Meredith in real life.

Seester sent me this from Perez Hilton:

Preggers! Now She Has To Get Fat!!!
The execs at Grey's
Anatomy are going to have to get creative when it comes to shooting their lead,
Ellen Pompeo. Cuz the 39-year-old is preggers!....

Pompeo and Ivery have been together since 2003 and were married in late
Being together six years is pretty good for a couple in
Congrats to the parents-to-be!
Will they give their baby some
crazy name????

my weekend.

Another quiet evening this friday for me BECAUSE...
tomorrow, I'm heading to the big City again... Dallas-Ft. Worth!!! yay!

I'm going to get dressed up, or as my niece Marina would say, I'm going to get "fancy"

To attend my dearest and oldest friend Nagita's Birthday bash out at Lake Grapvine.

We can not wait to take off tomorrow and make a great escape! even if it's only for the night... sigh.

HAPPY FRIDAY Lovies!!! enjoy your weekend and we'll discuss Monday!

xo yours, Micaela

*stockings here.

I will feel like a grecian goddess...

When I wear this. Spotted on here, and HAD to have one!!!!

Dear Etsy,
forgive my absence!
we are back on.
xo micaela

Picture Friday.

On Mondays, me, Lauren, and Marianne all exchange our favorite PostSecret from Sunday. We're each at our jobs, emailing back and forth. Throughout the week, it's the latest celeb gossip/email joke. "Do we like Rhianna's new tattoo? yay or nay?" That sort of thing.

On Fridays, Lauren started "Picture Friday" where we send a pic of ourselves from our phones. We are silly, but you can be silly with gfs :) and esp. on FRIDAY!!!

here was my pic today:

I'm kissing my bobble head of my FAVORITE Dallas Maverick, Dirk Nowitzki. He sits with me on my desk every work day :) i'm kissing him luck for the first play-off game against the Spurs!!!

me and my gfs are lovely dorks, but it makes me smile.

All that's missing is the vino.

My quiet thursday night.

*what looks like a smudge on my foot is my favorite tattoo, a gift from my twinkie. It's the japanese character for Heaven. I wanted something I would never change my mind about.

Sit with me.

One of my favorite scenes in a movie is in "Notting Hill" with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. They're in a park and she reads these words carved into the wood, "To June who Loved this garden... from Joseph, who always sat beside her."

So imagine how much i ADORED what P shared on her blog:

I hope she said, "Yes."

I would have :)

I dream of Italia...

After a lovely lunch at our Gidgets (our fave sandwich shop downtown), me and Max decided to make an impromptu visit over to a charming antique store in the world's littlest skyskraper. (It's true, my town has it-- take a look! kinda interesting).

We came across this and I was in awe. He loved it too.

It was beautiful art right in front of me. When we saw the price, we couldn't believe what a steal! $25. Framed and everything. It could pass as Spain or Mexico [if you look closely, a man has a hat on that looks like these countries] but to me- it reminds me of Italy. I walked across and daydreamed of the boy i fell in love with the summer i was 19 on a very bridge just like that in Florence. It feels like a lifetime ago.

In this life, my Darling Friend hung it up for me at Casa di M and it's perfect. Just like our lunch was, just like this beautiful piece of art we both were thrilled to find!

When I'm at an antique store...

I ALWAYS file through that one tin can you know you'll find, full of old pictures. You know the one. It's weird to think, how did these people's pictures -their lives- end up here? It's kind of sad too.

What I always look for is old pictures of couples together. I wonder about their love story. I found this one yesterday.

Look at this darling old couple. I wonder if they spent all their lives with each other...
What secrets to relationships/marriage they would give.
I'd ask them what the hardest challenge they faced together- and more importantly, how they got through it together.

Yes, I wonder all this just from their portrait.
I hope they were happy. :)

and just because...
my name is Micaela but my family and closest friends call me "Mickey." I went by Mickey through elementary and high school. LOVE IT!

Our pretty easter eggs turned into...

God Eggs, as my Momma calls them :)

they were yummy!!! and darling friend had them ready for me when I got off of work. :) He has them devided because I don't like relish, and he remembered... unlike the artichoke ordeal we had a few weeks ago >:) ha

we've been cooking together lately (very domestic, i love it). He makes the vegetarian girl i am smile, because he actually likes the soy grounds for our tacos or in our spaghetti sauce. Tuesday, we made chili dogs with organic chili (yummy!!!) and soy dogs with mustard (minus the cheese. I was good) and watched "7 Pounds" with the AMAZING Will Smith. We loved it. I'm pretty sure Rosario Dawson is my new girl crush...

i love our quiet evenings.

Bragging Rights.

My pappa is one of those parents that puts us children's accolades in the news paper. He NEVER tells us he's going to do it, just waits for us to be surprised. :) it's sweet really.

My brother Marco just got a promotion. Since my older siblings (including him) don't live in our town, I made this sign at work and scanned it for all of them. :)

I'm kind of fond of my family, if you couldn't tell ;)

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


Me with a jack & diet in hand: "There's a Carrie quote... where she says she's tired of doing the merry go-round and she wants to stand still with someone. Don't you want to stand still with me?"

Him: "YES. Just quit moving."

Saturday night conversation. Drinking/Karokeeing/Dancing with long lost friends. My fb status said: DESSIIIRE. U2. *on radio* danced my bum off!!! 2:30 a.m.

*pic here.

Unconditional Sweet Love.

She's feisty like her Mommy.
She eats like her Mommy. (A lot!)
She loves to sleep, like her Mommy.

Love. It's unconditional love. I'm CRAZY about my little white cotton ball!!!!

Monday, April 13, 2009


at my blackberry!!! it's not showing me confirmation that my emails are being sent, and they're taking ages to be received!!!

ugh. I've already tried re-setting it by taking the battery out.

Yes... i'm THIS dependant on my phone. It's sick really.
I need help.

Cos right now? i'm angry at my pink phone!!!!

below is my niece Marina. Her face says how I feel, only cuter ;)
love it!!!
in other news...
Spin class in an hour! YESSS.
it always makes me feel better.
twinkie is sick :( so i invited a co-worker! yay!!!

Marriage... I don't know what to think about it.

I always thought at 25 I'd already be a wifey and perhaps with child. This was the reason it was SUCH my "scary age."

I always joked that maybe I was meant to be "lovers for life." It works for Goldie & Kurt Russell. Look at Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Still together, sans any wedding bells/rings.

And after nearly 30 years of marriage, Mel Gibson is going to be on the market. The news of this SHOCKED me.

Mel Gibson's Wife Files for Divorce

I always thought that Mel being a family guy was even sexier.

Maybe I am right to lean towards what I had always joked... But then again, Big DID marry Carrie didn't he?

A Hoppy Easter Re-cap

Happy Morning Sunshines!!!
I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning.
there's nothing like clean sheets, agreed?
or cheese pizza with jalapenos for dinner with darling friend, a bottle of amstel light beer *he's turned me on to it!, and "The Sound of Music" on the telly. ;) oh and the dogs sleeping!!!!

a lovely sunday evening, indeed!
that also included dying eggs...
*pic i took from my blackberry that i sent the fam :) excuse the quality lol

oh and bunny ears, of course!

"I'm sentimental So I walk in the rain"

I saw this on Oh? and am just delighted!!!

A lovely Easter Sunday with my family (including dying eggs with Darling Friend! *pics tomorrow) stretched into a rainy evening. We sat on the porch and watched hail and rain thunder from the sky. It was beautiful. My kind of Sunday.

this song (& Fiona's voice it this cover) fits my kind of sunday:
*most of the lyrics I loved below

I've got some habits
That I can't explain

I sit and daydream
I've got daydreams galore
Cigarette ashes
There they go on the floor

But why try to change me now
Why can't I be more conventional
People talk
People stare
So I try
But that's not for me
Cause I can't see
My kind of crazy world
Go passing me by
So let people wonder
Let 'em laugh
Let 'em frown
You know I'll love you
Till the moon's upside down

Don't you remember
I was always your clown

Why try to change me now
Don't you remember
I was always your clown
Why try to change me
Why try to change me now

*a lyric i took out had "Spain" in it... I was born in Madrid, Spain. I do love that!!! "The rain in spain ... "

Happy Lazy Easter Sunday Bunnies!!! xo yours, Micaela

Friday, April 10, 2009


I felt like this, after a full lunch at Chili's with darling friend:

I'm not a fan of the restaurant, but let me tell you- their new lunch special may have converted me. Chips and the best kinda salsa/endless VEGETARIAN southwestern style soup/caesar salad. My tummy was happy!!!!

Then i had to go back to work, while he got to go play with the puppies.
I wanted to be with them. :(

SO HAPPINESS when my boss just said I could go home at 3:30!!! *happy Micaela!!! and that was oh, a minute ago... so I am out!!! :) i just wanted to wish you lovies a VERY HAPPY EASTER!!! and to remember what the holiday is TRULY about. *Thanks Jesus!!!!

*cutesy pic from here.

ART LOVE!!! i want these to hang on our walls...

Maker/Knower of all things Beautiful (cos she's beautiful herself!), Jennifer Ramos of MadeByGirl introduced her readers (me included!) to amazing artist Casey O'Connell.

I fell in love!!!!

these, these i adore. I love the titles too. [there's even one called "horny and full" that i like!]

Snow Globe.
This one caught my eye, with all the colors.

and this one... this one just reminded me of the boy & i. :)

Until Now

I just inquired how I can get my hands on a print!!! :) Casey is really sweet. You should check her out.

My Easter Surprise! :)

My sweet office friend Betty surprised me with this lovely sugar egg decoration she made. I was extremely touched. I mean, look at the intricate work it took to make such a sweet thing!

If you look inside, you see bunnies playing in the green grass & flowers. I say my bunnies are having a tea party :)

It's absolutely darling, as she is. And it made my friday morning!!!!

ps. because she knows me, she joked that since I can't eat it-- she gave me a minnie bag of m&m's :) m&m's... MY FAVE!
