Blogtember - where I came from

hi peeps

it has been WELL over a year since I have blogged

forgive me, please? 

it has been a BUSY year...if you did read my blog or are just stopping by. last summer there was this old friend, i wasn't sure i should let back into my life....more about that later :) 

I am joining in with Jenny from Story of My Life on her Blogtember mission. 

I desparately want to get back into blogging as I am hoping it will get the thoughts of my little tiny brain :) 

First up is where I came from. I'm a day late, usually am always late so bare with me, please?

the people in the above photo are my parents! 

they are molded me into the human being I am today. I would not be who I am or where I am without their help and perseverance. My mom is Italian and my dad is Colombian. 

What a combo, right?!

Well my mom grew up very independent. The middle child of 5 (she still suffers from middle child syndrome) she has worked hard for everything in her life. She always instilled in me that you can have it all. Career, family, just everything. She is in sales, I honestly don't know how she does it. I now have this wonderful career, not in sales (thank goodness), but as an Accounting Manager. I wouldn't have worked so hard if not for her. 

My dad moved to the US when he was 13. The oldest of 5 (both parents came from a big fam) he has worked hard to help his parents make sure his brothers and sister were taken care of. He taught me to not take guff from anyone! He doesn't stand for anything but best and neither will I. 

I am a loving, caring, tough cookie thanks to these two. Now we can do fun things together, like go pub crawling! Now that is a sight. Mom drinks like a fish, dad rolls his eyes. These two crack me up but no matter how much they make me crazy, I'd say they did a pretty good job with me! And my sister too I guess. :) 

If you haven't already, link up with Jenny from Story of My Life. She is just lovely. 

And if you are here from her blog, welcome!
