Sorry this post is coming up late but life has been a bit hectic. Vanessa had precious baby Everest on May 30th at 7:33pm. He was in the NICU for a few days but he’s out now and more perfect than ever! At first he didn’t like me but now I’m his favorite. I was lucky enough to be there during his birth and although I never imagined I’d want to watch a baby being born, it’s now one of my most treasured experiences. I haven’t really been able to do much to prove myself other than change his diap’s and feed him but it’s awesome being a Tia.
I bet you’re wondering about the money. I was cleaning out my closet one day and found an old purse that I hadn’t used since 2010. (old receipts say so) In my old wallet I found a $100 bill and then a few hours later stumbled upon $30! I can’t begin to imagine how it is that I forgot about that kind of money. But then I remembered that back in 2010 I was kinda rollin’ in it so…there’s your answer.
Next picture down is my Mom. From time to time I still do some “spanish” work for my old intern boss and this time she said she needed me to represent the agency for her at the Univision station in Dallas AND she wanted to know if I knew of anybody that could be a spokesperson for her client, the Mesquite ProRodeo. Naturally, I chose my Mom! After some coaching, she did great.
They liked her so much that from now on they want to use her as their spanish spokesmodel for any upcoming work.
If only I could hook myself up with work! Lol
Finally, as you know from a previous post, Mariel graduated from college. She’s the first in her family to graduate from an American college. Wepa! Here’s an awesome link my Ma put together commemorating her graduation: http://vimeo.com/netclipsmedia/review/42093449/11695207c0
Till June folks.
WHO ARE WE?
We are Vivianarchy & Cafesita Poéta, two Latinas better known as “Café con Leche.” If you don’t know spanish, the literal translation is coffee with milk. I’m the milk in her coffee ♥
Vivianarchy: I’m a 28 year old college graduate with my degree in Advertising from the school of Journalism at UNT. I’m half Cuban & the rest is hispanic mutt that consists of Nicaraguan, Costa Rican & Honduran. I’m from California, but raised in Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, Santa Barbara & Chicago. In my free time I like to spend time with people, scour Pinterest for DIY projects and eat good food but I get paid to be a Client Services Coordinator for a global digital ad serving company. Those ads you see online (that you hate)–I help serve them :)
Cafesita Poéta: aka Mariel. She’s a 21 year old recent college graduate from UNT with a degree in Sociology. She’s 100% Mexican who was born & raised in south Texas. In her free time she’s a poet but she gets paid to be a Bilingual Intake Specialist for the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services. Next on the list is getting into UT’s School of Social Work for her masters degree in Community and Administrative Leadership. She’s a big nerd.
HOW DID WE MEET?
In 2009, we met at the college campus GLAD (gays & lesbians against defamation) meeting. We sat near one another during the meeting so when the leader asked everyone to sit closer together, I moved to sit by Mariel & her friend. We said “hi” & chatted a bit. It was casual, but over the next few weeks I kept running into her at different places on campus. Finally, I told her we should have each others number & hang out sometime. We were both in long relationships, so we were just friends :)
Over the next year or so we would meet for lunch at school & talk: her about her relationship & me about my crazy single dating life. I thought she was the most mature & intellectual person I’d ever met.
We never formally admitted to crushing on each other, mostly because of the age difference. (7 years!) Long story short, in 2011 she invited me to stay with her at her family’s home & go to South Padre Island for Spring Break and the rest is history.
Have questions? Ask away! :)
