Auntie Gaga

Im convinced I look better in motion, and upside down. My photog took the pic this way though.

Color boost!

Today was my niece's graduation party and no one made fun of my outfit! Well, my oldest niece said my dress made me look like I had a butt and chi chis but I told her I always have those. I'm known as "Auntie Gaga" in my family which is funny to me. My nephew has called me "eccentric" one of his vocab words at school.

One of my favorite memories was when they came to spend the night at my apartment when I was in college. One of my nieces laughed so hard she started to vomit. We all ran in the other room and left her with my mom. Later that night she told me, "Auntie, my hair is hard right here and it smells funny." So I took her in the shower to wash her hair. I put her in a chair, and had her tilt her hair back but some water ended up dripping down her back and getting her underwear wet so I had to lend her some of mine that I had never worn because they were too small for me. They had lollipops on the back and they said "lick me." My niece started cracking up when she read it (she was old enough to read) "lick me? lick me? hahaha" I told her "Sera don't say that." Months later, we are riding in the car and she goes, "Hey auntie remember when you washed my hair in the shower and I had to wear your underwear that said 'lick me'?" That was 5 years ago. They are still funny. And today, my 11 year old niece was my photographer. She did a better job than my own muther.

I told her to make her thizz face.

They thought it would be funny to pose in front of their Uncle's hot ride. I told them I wouldnt. haha.

I found my dress at the Salvation Army during the winter and was so surprised it fit well. I had tried on so many similar dresses in Mexico but they were either way too big or tight on the arms and chest. Plus, the vendors were always trying to rip my sweet face off. I got it on 50% off day so I think it cost me maybe $2.50. Holla! I love that it will never go outta style and will be flattering to my figure no matter how pregnant I ever get.
