When I first decided I wanted to move out, leaving the family was such a difficult decision. I was worried I wont be there for them when they need me, when in trouble, or need advice. It made me feel so depressed at times knowing ill be miles away. Knowing I wont be there to comfort them or protect from bullies and peer pressure. But since the day I have moved out I have learned so much that I wouldn't have in years with living at my parents home with siblings. I believe I still would be spoiled rotten ( from me indulging on my selfish habits) not paying rent and food. I feel like I have grown to be 25 yrs old rather than me still be in 20's. OH well... should have been expecting it. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining.  I have moved out of my parents at the age of 17 moved back in for 2 years when I came back from 4 month vacation for 2 years and thought it was enough.

Per my parents and me since they have so many kids, I felt obligated to move and support myself and them as well. I feel if daddy helped and supported me so much, I  at least can help him with couple things in life. It makes me feel so special knowing I'm doing something in return. LOVE YOU DAD AND MOM...

God Blessed me so much in life with new friends and new family here. I love them all and will miss them when I will have to move again or have a change of scenery. 

Miss my pup so bad.. Luv you pootsy ....

I officially decided  on my Turkey recipe:
Perfect Roast Turkey

It looks so good I cant Wait to make it.
Total Time: 3 hr 20 min

Prep: 30 min

Inactive: 20 min

Cook: 2 hr 30 min

  • 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 fresh turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large bunch fresh thyme
  • 1 whole lemon, halved
  • 1 Spanish onion, quartered
  • 1 head garlic, halved crosswise
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the zest and juice of the lemon and 1 teaspoon of thyme leaves to the butter mixture. Set aside.
Take the giblets out of the turkey and wash the turkey inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pinfeathers and pat the outside dry. Place the turkey in a large roasting pan. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the turkey cavity. Stuff the cavity with the bunch of thyme, halved lemon, quartered onion, and the garlic. Brush the outside of the turkey with the butter mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the turkey.
Roast the turkey about 2 1/2 hours, or until the juices run clear when you cut between the leg and the thigh. Remove the turkey to a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil; let rest for 20 minutes.
Slice the turkey and serve.

All those who are vegetarian, How do you celebrate thanksgiving without a turkey if your family has a tradition for all to have a turkey?
 I was a vegan for 2 years, it was such a difficult process for me. I didn't do just because, I cant watch animals being brutally killed and abused at the farms. I'm back to eating protein cuz my body just gave up with out enough protein and started to crave so much of it I thought I would go crazy. Now ill just have it once a month or twice to support my diet. Those two years i didn't have a turkey and it was hard smelling the aroma.. I almost died....

P.S. Wedding update coming up soon in the next post.
