Weekend fun with our Familia

Our weekends have lately been consisting of cleaning, unpacking, more cleaning, and organizing, however, this weekend we finally finished up with Brad's mancave and took a break to spend the weekend with familia. My parents and grandparents made the treck from Dallas to College Station to see us, our new house, spend quality time with their nieto and bis-nieto, and celebrate my birthday.

Our Saturday was filled with lunching at Grub (our favoritest burger joint in town)...

If you ever find yourself in Aggieland I would definitely suggest you stop by and sample their awesome menu (especially the Hippie Chic burger)

Afterwards we drove around campus amid the crazy construction and headed back to the house

Once home we introduced the familia to the world of Wii...

Needless to say after some extreme dancing with Just Dance 2 and an all around sports shmorgesbourg with Wii Tennis, Bowling, Boxing, and Golf, we made a fan out of my mom and dad.

And of course, Little Manolito got to spend some quality time with his favorite grandparents and great grandparents...

The rest of the weekend we spent some quality time together laughing, catching up on everything from the cruise to my birthday, and just enjoying spending time together. Sadly, our familia couldn't stay but we look forward to seeing them again soon, si dios quiere.

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.
