A Visit From Melissa & Christine

  Last week Melissa came up from San Diego to visit with all of us {her high school girlfriends}! She and Christine came over to meet little Madison, and for Raychel and Oceana to have play-date with Andruw!
Andruw is the sweetest little boy. He makes me want to have a little boy of my own!
I love having visit over!! It was so nice spending time with these two ladies! I love them so much! We have so many memories together from high school, that when we get together it is always tons of fun remembering the olden days and seeing how much every thing/every one has changed.

A’s Game, Fireworks, and Breasts Like Heidi Montag

2 weekends ago, we went to the A’s game with a few friends and afterwards they had fireworks! The girls love going to the games, specially, if they are going to have fireworks after!

This was my first time leaving Madison for a few hours 😦 … she was in good hands so I wasn’t worried {thanks Carol for watching Madi!}Am breast feeding Madison, so I brought my pump along to the game. When the game was almost about to start I went into my car to pump. I get my pump out, I turn it on and  it all seems to be working fine until I place the pump to my breast and the suction does not work!! The next time I was going to be able to release the milk would be in 5 hours! SO, by the time the fireworks were over I was lookin’ like Heidi Montag ha-ha!

Besides looking like Heidi Montag at the end of the night, It was nice tail gating with friends, eating delicious food, spending more of a one on one time with Raychel and Oceana, the A’s winning, and watching a great show of fireworks!!

Hubby Thursdays- Our Beginning

  How Ray and I met…
I worked at a chiropractors office in Dublin and Ray would come in to see the doctor and get adjusted. The first time I met him I thought he was such a hottie, and that was it. After he kept coming in a few more times I became more interested, so I checked his file to see how old he was and if he was married. When I looked at his file and seen he was 26 and not married I thought… I’m too young {I was 18}, he will never look at me in that way {as a girlfriend/future wife.} My next thought was… I should try to get Ray and my sister together! I told my sister about how great of a guy Ray was and that she should come to my work one day about five-ish {this is the time he mostly always comes in} in hopes they would run into each other. Elizabeth came to my work one day around five-ish, she got adjusted by the docotor and waited around to see if Ray would show up. She waited, waited, and waited some more and nothing, no Ray. Elizabeth told me, ” Well Olga, its probably not meant to be.” I told her, “just wait five more minutes and if he doesn’t come then you can head on out.” Five minutes past and no Ray. Elizabeth then left, and about 3 minutes after she left… guess who shows up? Ray! I was bummed they missed eachother, but something inside of me was very happy to see him and not share him with my sister. As days gone by, less and less I would talk to my sister about getting them two together, and the more I would fall for Ray. I loved going to work on the days I knew he would be there. I would wait all day for it to be evening to see him walk in through the door. My heart would beat so fast and I would pretend to be working or looking down at a file as if I didn’t know he was walking in. I loved those few minutes we had to talk and to take him off the traction machine. He made me smile, laugh, he put a spark in me that I have never felt! One day, He asked me, “So, what type of guys do you like?” I loved that he asked me this because it made me think… maybe he likes me or is interested in me a little? after I told him what type of guy I liked I then asked him the same question, and he said, “Well, I like girls who are latin, but that don’t look latina.” I thought.. Ok, thats totally me. I then said, “Oh, Ok.” He then asked for my number!! I was so excited, but of course, I wasnt going to show him how excited I really was. 
We went out a few times, and i was on cloud nine everytime we went out. He would call me and i would call him. There was a time in our dating days that he wouldn’t call for a few days then he would call. I was confused and sad, because i wanted to talk to him everyday. i remember saying to my self… am not calling him or setting a date night with him anymore. if he really wants something serious with me he will make the move. I was at work when i seen him again. My heart pounded so fast that i thought it was going to jump off my chest, and these crazy butterflies in my stomach. We talked, laughed, then he said he would call me later. This made me so happy yet sad, because i had no clue were this was going. After work i got into my car and started crying my eyes out. I was praying to God telling him that if this guy was not going to be my future husband  that he would stop calling me! BUT, that if he was the “one” then that he would keep calling me even if i did not call him. Sure enough, he was calling everyday, texting, saying… I don’t know what is going on with me,  I cannot stop thinking about you.!! praise god!!! Lord Jesus, you are amazing! you listen to me even when i am so not worthy. You always come through and answer all my prayers!! thank you Lord Jesus for being such a loving God! No one can fathom your amazing love, Lord, and i thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no thank you is ever enough on how thankful I am of you! And since then everything else was history!!!

Relay For Life!

God placed a sweet friend name Brandi into my life! 
I think its been 9 months since I first met Brandi, and she is amazing!
Brandi was 5 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. She finished all her treatments at age 7, and 14 years later she was diagnosed again, BUT… now, she is cancer free! She is wife to Jay and a wonderful mommy to a beauitful little girl, bri’elle. This is Brandi’s testimony of the miracle God has performed in her! She gives all the praise and glory to God! Praise God!!

Thank you Lord Jesus for Brandi! Thank you for giving her life and placing her in my life!!!

So, with that being said, we joined her team for American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Pinole. 
It was a great event raising awareness for cancer!
Being apart of Relay For Life was such a blessing. It showed God’s amazing power! Nothing is impossible to Him! It was so much fun spending time with all my BFF’s! We all had a great time spending time together, hanging out, walking a few laps, and enjoying some yummy food. The kiddos also enjoyed hanging out with their buddies, playing with all the cool toys they had, running around on the grass, and walking a few laps as well.

It was a great Saturday morning!

Brandi’s Quote
“I’m thankful for every breathe I take and everyday I live. Each day is not promised.”
