New projects!


I feel it's been forever since my last post, but this week has been hectic and I haven't had time to write anything about anything :(
But today is the day!!!
1st of all I would like to share something with all of you...as some fo you know, My mom, sis and myself are
starting this new adventure... it is something I've been wanting to do for quite some time and it's finally
coming together... I'm talking about our very own Coffee Shop!!, we decided we wanted to do this FOR REAL a little more than 2 months ago, my sis moved back to Mexico in order to work 100% on this project since it's not only a Coffee Shop, it will also work as a "Gallery" where she will expose her Photograpy, we want it to be a place where not only you can go with your friends to enjoy a coffee or snacks, but a place where you can enjoy art, read a book or just "chill" lol, so, everything pretty much took form while I was in Seoul, while being there my sis told me they had found a place and the Coffee Maker... since at the moment I didn't know anything about what my mom and sis were really doing I was kind of in the dark and it was until I came back  from Seoul that I realize this was ACTUALLY HAPPENING!, I came back on Dec 22nd (at night!) and by the 23rd early morning I was back to work, then it was Christmas and then it was "New years eve" week, so I still didn't know much about it...it was until Dec 31st that I went to see the place where our new Project (Life?) would be, it was bigger than I thought... even thou I only got to see it for a couple of mins I knew it was going to be perfect.... That was the moment I began to be really nervous... I was completly sure the food will be good since we were going to begin with some "basics" you can find in a small coffee shop, but the Coffee??..I didn't/dont know much about it, my sister worked in a small coffee shop when she was like 15 but it's been 13 years since that happend and I've only made a capuccino here and there about 5 years ago, so I was REALLY worried about it... Thank god for my sis' friend(s) who are willing to help us to improve our Barista skills (wich btw...are non-existing at the moment).
This 2011 has brought many many good things from the beggining, the 1st weekend we went to visit my grandparents outside the city...we just went there to relax, eat and  drink (yay!), we had planned to go on saturday and  come back the same day, but at the end we decided to spend the night and had a nice Wine/Appetizers in a very "Italian" style (as my grandma call it O_o) as dinner :) . The beggining of the first week went well, working on the Coffee shop plans... the next weekend we went to paint, considering the place is not THAT big my sister and I thought it was a good idea to paint it ourselves.... WRONG!!! it looks like something easy, and it kinda is, but then you go out and realize you are dizzy cuz of the smell and at the next day you have a back ache, can't lift your arms and just don't feel so good with the idea of painting again.....EVER!...lol but I have to say that we did a very good job, the place looks very good... after painting and 1 barista "lesson" it was time to head home (yay!!!!!),, 5 days later... We Opened!! everything was so fast I can't believe we are really doing this... and tomorrow is the "Grand Openning", so hopefully I'll see some of you there :)

I would like to thank my mom and my perritow for the support, luv ya guys!!!!!
