Sweet as Honey!

This seem to be my current favorite thing! I have grown up most of my life thinking I did not like honey…..but I have to admit I had never tried it. I had it with biscuits a couple of months ago and now I’m hooked. I bought some for my self and have been putting in on bread, biscuits, and even waffles.

Run Arelis Run!

During 2008 I kept a calendar in which I wrote down the miles I ran on a day to day basis. On the days when I did not run I would place a big fat X for that particular day, seeing the big fat x’s was supposed to motivate me to keep staying active. There are definitely some months that have more red x’s than others!

I had just thrwon my calendar into the trash, when I decided to get it back out and count how many total miles I had ran for the year. I ran a total of 194.8 miles according to my calendar! I’m feeling kinda pround of little ol’ me right about now. I know there are people out there that log in wayyyy more miles than this, but for me it was encouraging and I want to keep it going.

So, my goal for 2009 is going to be to increase 2008’s number by about 10%. I am shooting for 215 miles in 09!!!!!!! I gotta do my part and stay committed. Whenever you see me ask me how am doing, that way you will help me stay accountable to my goal. So far I’m off to a shaky start…but hey I still got 11 more months to go, right!?

Christmas Dinner

Our family has always celebrated and had Christmas dinner on Christmas eve. I promise you I don’t think I found out that Christmas was on the 25th until I moved here! This year the Family got together and shared some good times and definitely some good food!


This is a plate of hayaca (venezuelan version of a tamales but ours are wrapped in plantain leaves), ensalada de gallina (Venezuelan chicken salad), arroz con gandulez (Puerto Rican rice with pigeon peas…I love this rice!), and last but not least, delicious honey baked ham. Everything was so tasty!

My family is from Venezuela and my sister’s husband and inlaws are from Puerto Rico, so for Christmas we had a good mixture of Latin food.

Of course we never forget dessert….desserts are always a priority (did I mentioned I am addicted to sugar in the form of desserts!)


We had chocolate eclaire (made by moi), arroz con coco, tres leches, and flan…oh man, I think I’m making my self hungry! 🙂



Here is my little brother Alex, probably feeling overly stuffed!

Good food and good times! I hope you had a Very Merry Christmas as well spent with family and friends.

Feliz Navidad…un poquito tarde!

well, that is only if I share it with Mr. Dagri…whoever that is!

I got this random email at work today and I was cracking me up. If he only knew I’m only a Harvey b/c I married one! 🙂

Dear Arelis,
Rebels in September 2003 stole millions in the branch of the BCEAO of Man (west of Abidjan) they were supposed to keep This is the fourth “breakout” of this kind in the agencies of the BCEAO installed former area rebel-and second place in Côte d’Ivoire.
And me being in service in the town , I fund a case involving a large sum of money belonging to the late Mr. Luke Harvey who was the BOA customer.
Since then I have conducted several investigations to locate the parents of the deceased client, but in vain. After several failed attempts, I decided to go far on this case to find a member of his family and that’s how I got in touch with you.
Not finding any close parents during the last 2 years, I would like your consent to introduce you as a close relative of the deceased since you are homonyms for the funds to be transferred into your account then the sharing will be between you and me.
I would like to have your full and honest cooperation to enable us to achieve this, I remain in anticipation of your urgent response to this proposal.
Best regards,
Mr. Dagri
PS : Please do not mind my english because i’m french

Dress Up Day @ DRE

Friday we had a little pot luck lunch and dress up day at work…..check out some of the characters:

What can brown do for you!


These two were by far the funniest! Dennis was a used car sales man and Jim was….well I’m not really sure! but I think he was going for the pimp look.

My friend Nathan hooked me up with the afro wig, which I must say added much character to my UPS attire. 🙂

Donald Duck paid us a little visit.

Jack was the cutest one of all! He came in to visit us for a little while with his cute little bumble bee costume…looks like he was stepping on King Kong’s hand! ( I want a Westie puppy!!!!!)

Fun times! How about you? did you dress up for halloween?
