April Showers

April 28, 2019

That's all I could think of. April Showers. Even though it didn't rain much. It was a pretty calm month. I think I spent most of it binge watching Netflix. First Grace and Frankie. All 6 seasons. Then, Celia Cruz. All eighty episodes. I've got four left.

And in between all that binge watching, I did get certified to teach Aqua (not Zumba). It was a fun day con muchos conocidos. Ja, ja. Watching Celia Cruz is making my Spanish pop up unexpectedly. So there were many others I knew taking the training. Zelia, Elisa, Yanitza, Angie and, the instructors was none other than Zumba Jammer, Ashley Bishop. Fun day.

Aqua Training

I got a Zumba Jam in with Ahaja. Fun songs. Fun friends.

I went to visit my mom.

Sadly, In Shape Pittsburg will be closing its doors permanently on April 30. My last class was the 24th and sweet Vivian brought me flowers. I did not get a class at another location. Oh well...


Lastly, we celebrated our 23rd Anniversary. We've been on a hiatus for a couple of years from spending our anniversary in The City. Since someone other than a Zumba Instructor in the household has a job now, we went and did our usual. Stay at The W, dinner - at yummy La Mar on the Embarcadero, night cap at the Buena Vista, night night cap back at The W.

There's was lots of this.

But we managed to not overindulge. View from the room.

My name is Rosy, Chacha, Meez, Mama, Mother...take your pick. I am the sort of stay at home mother of 4. Sort of because of my Zumba and my Rodan and Fields jobs.

This is my personal blog intended for my family and friends and for anyone out there who enjoys a good laugh, likes to try out new recipes, likes kittens and loves Zumba. Welcome!

My loves are my Honey Bunch, my children, my family, friends and Zumba. My Zumba site:

One of my favorite sites and one I'll be ideas from. (Hmmm. I already see my Nerd font is similar to hers. Hers is Edwardian Script and Mine is Beautiful ES.)

This is my nieces blog. She's cute: needs a facelift and makeover. I'll be working on that, too.

They need you.

They need you, too.
