Confessions of a Bad Blogger...

Forgive me followers, for I have sinned, it's been 3 months since my last submission...

I'm back now and with plenty of super fun updates. Hannukah, New Years, and Winter Break have long gone and the spring semester is in full swing. Lately my days are filled to the brim with program planning, phone calls, mountains upon mountains of e-mails, students stressing me out, and oh yes...wedding planning!! Needless to say, it's been a hectic two months.

On a happy note, things are calming down, a bit and we've recently celebrated some exciting milestones.

First, Brad and I are now g-dparents! Our nephew, Miles Spencer was born Monday, March 5th. We went to Dallas to meet him and celebrate his bris. Here are some of the pictures below:

Second, our little baby Manny, has had some milestones of his own, ironically, similiarly to Miles' but not Manny definitely got the short end of the stick, pobrecito. On February 17th, our poor baby went to THE appointment at PetSmart. So fortunately and unfortunately, there will be no Little Manny's running around in the future. He was pretty hyped up on pain meds the first day but he got better day after day.

These are our updates for now, but I promise to be back soon!!

About Me

For those of you who know me, writing has always been one of my passions, with the exception of my Masters or any ridiculously long testament within the wide world of Academia. I've only had the pleasure of blogging a couple of times, mostly for a few classes in graduate school, but figured it was time to organize my numerous thoughts and musings with all of you out there in cyber land. I created this page because my mind is always running and often times my thoughts get lost in the hubub. Plus, my friends have always said that I'm a great storyteller, so I'd love to share them now with you. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this... Throughout the past 33 years of my life I've seen, heard, and experienced so many different things as well as had many adventures and dream of so many possibilities. But in short, what it comes down to is this..I'm just a little Jubana trying to make a difference in the world. Everyday I live my life to the fullest and have fun doing it. Life can't always be about work or how much money you make. There's so much more to life than that.
