Thank You 2010!!!!

2010 was truly a very blessing year. here's my small recap of this wonderful year.

in the beginning of the year we were able to visit Pittsburgh thanks to Johnnys job. Traveling is in our blood and we will be traveling even more for 2011. also in the beginning of the year we were searching for our wedding venue ,and designing our wedding. the start of 2010 when off without a hitch. it started  perfect!
in the middle of the year my bachelorette events started. i had bachelorette event each month till the last month before my wedding. We went to a drag queen show,had a passion party,went to trapeze school,took pole dancing class,went to the Bahamas ,and had your typical bachelorette event at a strip club. all in the name of fun .... all the girls had a blast ,and most of all i did too.... johnny had a few events as well for his bachelor... he had poker night,and Vegas. 

We got married after 5 years together ,and that's not counting our high schools years.... we finally got married on our 6yr anniversary 10-01-10..... i became a Plata! our wedding was amazing... it was filled with our personality ,and had lots love in the air. the dance floor was completely packed ,and the most important people in our lives were there to share this day with us. and the most important women in my life was there. my grandmother ...god blessed me with letting me have my grams there... and  continues to bless me with having her ...

we went on to our honeymoon ( mini-moon) we went to Disney with my cousins from Spain. we shared our mini moon with family. our big honeymoon will be in august 2011 in Hawaii... i cant wait! we were lucky enough to have a mini moon  in Disney Orlando, and in Halloween horror nights. we love our annual Halloween horror nights trip. 

 after we came back from our mini moon we had our cake top. we couldn't wait a whole year to freeze it and eat it. so we decided to eat right away. we didn't get to try it at our wedding anyways let alone eat at all so we ate our cake ,and shared it with our family. it was YUMMY!!!!

we has our annual pumpkin carving...not a lot of people were able to attend but the originals were. 4 years in a row ,and going strong...we had the honor to have baby Rosie to attend ,and make her own baby pumpkin.
Christmas came and Christmas left... we celebrated Christmas at the Lopez residence ,and had such a wonderful time. i finally lost weight ... i started this year very chunky ... I've lost a total of 10 pounds and will continue to loose weight.... my unny lost weight too.... it was cold in Miami ,and it made Christmas feel more like Christmas. we almost had snow (well little ice on my car) and now we just waiting to ring in 2011 tonight.
what a beautiful year....and many more to come ... I'm so grateful to have a wonderful family to be blessed with my new family. once again thank you 2010 for blessing us ,and continue to do so!

December to Remember!

( a year ago i was engaged to this wonderful man ,and today I'm his wife!!!)

Yesterday was my hunnys birthday ,and the 25Th was our one year anniversary since our engagement. December is filled with many amazing celebrations. My hunny tuned 25 ,and looks more handsome everyday. usually for his birthday i go all out ... i always end up blind folding him for his birthday surprise and he always seems to fall for it every year. this year i we did go crazy for his birthday per his request. it was a mellow birthday with family just how he wanted it. cant believe how time is flying by ,and life is just truly amazing.

All I want for Christmas is you!

Christmas was lovely this year .... it was spent with family ,and with lots of love and laughter in the air. This Christmas i was a wife... when last Christmas i was a fiance. our first Christmas as newlyweds was Fantastic! i couldn't ask for a better Christmas. my grandmother was with us ,and she even danced. Thank you God for allowing us to have my grandmother another year. She was so happy ,and oh yea ... she was even drinking Whiskey! for the first time in my life we had a countdown for Christmas it felt like new years. I Loved it! new Plata tradition... it made the holiday that much more exciting...everyone gave each other kisses ,and hugs and wished each other a merry Christmas ,and after we passed out our gifts. we were up till 230am ,and i was ready to hit the sack. the next day we did NOTHING! if the platas knows how to do one thing its to do NOTHING. we were so pooped...even Retro was pooped poor thing.

We Got the courage to shower ,and head out the door to Johnny's parents house to open presents ,and drink Caldito ( its egg soup that my mother in law does and it taste delish) we opened more present ,and then just hung out. i was super duper tired and ready to go home again. i felt exhausted ,and super lazy. the 25Th we spent it at home with our little family ,and just watched Home Alone 2 ( it isn't Christmas till i watch Home Alone) the Holiday felt complete.

Sunday night we went to my cousins house that was throwing a surprise party for her mom. Theme: 50's ... super cute party whole family was there. Johnny and i haven't seen my family since our wedding so it was a pretty sweet party. This Christmas all i wanted was to be with my family didn't want gifts just wanted to be with all of them ,and that's exactly what i got. Beautiful Christmas spent with amazing people ,and especially my Husband!

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.

Oh this is love!

"A woman knows the face of the man she loves like a sailor knows the open sea."
----Honoré de Balzac
oh this is love... its been a very busy around my house. with lots of working ,and many projects we just haven't caught a break. the little breaks that we do catch are spent in front of the TV watching netflix,and playing with retro ( our pup/son).Married life has truly been good to us. i cant believe we've only been married for two months it actually feels like a lifetime in the most blissful way possible. I'm so in love with my life ,and the above picture is what i cant wait to get home to. Oh this is love!

Money is the motive

Its work work work in our lives right now. johnny and i have two full-time ,and two part time jobs. some people think we should be all stressed but we are not. we actually love it! johnny is doing what he loves ,and i am as well. psychology and event planning are my two weaknesses. i have an event almost every weekend ,and johnny works every Saturday. right now our priority is to live debt free ,and so far its working. for now our time together will be cut short for a while until the debt turns to zero and then its freedom time. Freedom to live with out debt. everyone has debt some have a little some have a lot ,but some have wisely paid it off and live happily ever after. That's US!!!!!!!

Im his Wife & He's My Husband

Well we did... We are finally Married!!! Monday November 1st we make a month as Mr. & Mrs. Time is flying by!!. the wedding came and the wedding left. Married life is truly a blessing. we are still adjusting back to "normal" life again with out wedding details and planning. For our Mini-moon we went to Orlando,fl ,and visited Halloween Horror Nights ,Magic Kingdom ,and Aquatica ,and it was truly a delight. i had so much fun with my Husband. still getting used to the "husband" title but its starting to feel more accepting. The title husband and wife has a deep meaning and with that comes a deep feeling. when i look at him my tummy gets excited because he's my "husband" now. a whole new role goes with that title. Marriage is a wonderful feeling that's going to bring wonderful memories.

T-3 days!!!!! & Bachelorette bliss!

( Popa in Vegas)

( Me in my 2nd celebration)

For the last two weekends Ive been celebrating my bachelorette. My maid of honor jessia did an outstanding job in planning it all. last weekend we went to the Bahamas for two days. I LOVED IT! soooooooo relaxing ,and fun with the girls. i had such an amazing time in the Bahamas with jess,michi,mel,Caro,Janet,Milli,Sabri and Monica that i wish i was back there. Then this past weekend i had the "real" bachelorette. yes! we went to La bares... at first i didn't want the stripper kinda of thing but when we got to the strip club it was sooooooooooo much fun. once again my friends are amazing ... they are a blessing. this time around Arelene,Nati,Natalie,Janet,Jess,Sabri,and Max were able to celebrate with me. i had a fantastic time ,and it wasn't at all raunchy.

The boys wen to Vegas. they wanted the whole Vegas experience like the "hangover" they just did what boys to ,and that was alright with me. as i was having my fun johnny was having his fun too.

We have such amazing group of friends that they are truly blessings in my life.

soooooooooooooooooooo.... we are 3 days away from the Biggest moment in my life. My nerves are definitely started to kick in. Tropical Storm is on its way ,and I'm hoping it clears up by friday. oh pleeeeeeeeease let the sunshine ,and the moon brighten up the sky. our location is putting up a tent for our ceremony as it was suppose to be in open air. almost everything is in place just have to set up the favors ,and think of where to sit everyone. all the girls are ready and the boys are ready too.

Tomorrow off from work for a week. i cant wait i need this break.

Dear Money Gods!!!

OK!.... so our wedding has been an amazing event to plan ,and we are almost coming down to the wire. However ,its also been hard not to shop for non -wedding stuff in the last couple of months. My heart hasn't been able to shop for pleasure since ( well its been too dam long) . the other day as i was making my daily blog visits i came across these shoes. when i saw the them my heart just started to weep,and it continues weeping. so for now i say see you later to the shoes that have stolen my heart ,and continue with wedding shopping.

16 days!!!!

PS: just in case shopping is permitted after the wedding here's the link where you can purchase.

18 days left

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.

John N. Mitchell

The time is almost near and it still hasn't hit me yet. I'm not in denial ... I'm just enjoying all the planning ,and being preoccupied with it. For the next two weeks its finalizing ,and preparing for the big day. we have our marriage license,and we have our outfits completed. more and more each day I'm looking at marriage as a whole new chapter in my life (even if we have been living together for the past year). Its a new Yasi with new values , different priorities ,and a whole new last name. Yes! I'm changing my last name ,and what a challenge has that been to come to that conclusion. Ive been grieving the change of my last name since the day i said yes!. its not that i do not want to be Mrs. Plata... its just a Huge change. and a part of me thought that my individuality was gone out the window once i changed it. But its not... i don't plan to change myself ... i just plan to change my last name,and my title as a wife not a Girlfriend.

Mrs. Plata is not only going to incorporate my new life ,but my old life too. Ive come to the idea that Plata is just a last name. it makes johnny and i a family. the beginning of our own family. And I'm alright with that. I'll still be me , act the same way, talk the same way, and even Bitch the same way. I'm excited to change my last name ,and begin this new chapter. A new life with the man Ive always dreamed about ,and has been my rock, best friend ,lover, and sanity since the day we met.

The Venue has been picked....the Date has been set.... and the Save-the-Dates are out!!!!

It's been a long time since I've written in my blog ,and I really have missed writing. a lot of things have happened since the last time i wrote.

I finalized my guest list. which took me fooooooooreveR!!!

My save the date have been designed ( by johnny the fiance) ,and were sent out to my guest's.

I launched my company ,and its going great.

RAZZ EVENTS is going to go big! please visit for wedding/event planning services

Everything is working out beautifully. My wedding plans are going accordingly. I'm doing things step by step in order to decrease the stress levels ,and worries. weddings are very detailed,and i am my worst client. i always tell people that the worst client i can ever have is myself. I've changed my wedding dress about 3 times, i cannot make up my mind at all at things. like my fiance says I'm a flip flopper. one day i say i want orchids as my flowers the next day i say why waste on flowers if they are going to die anyways. but that's how I'll learn to deal with a flip flopper if i ever encounter one as a client.

I'm currently working with a bride (not myself) ,and its going great. she wants me to help her for rehearsals ,and the day of. I'm grateful that I'm working with such a great bride ,and its an honor that she is allowing me to help her the day of the wedding.

Well ,I've been late on my post's but its never to late to write.
