Hola Hermamas and the rest of my dedicated readers!
those of you that just got on the bandwagon of Cost Effective Chica
readership, let me update you to a bit of my background. I am a proud
Gaucho alum of UC Santa Barbara. While I was a student, I joined
Hermanas Unidas-a social organization that is based on the three pillars
of community service, academics, and social networking. We were each
other's support and guidance through the trials and tribulations of our
undergraduate years. We laughed, cried, partied, and roomied. As the
years progressed, our roles in each other's lives might have survived
the harsh realities of post collegiate adult life, or faded to once in a
while updates via facebook, personal blogs, or the occassional text
message. Distance might separate us, complications further tear us
apart, but the bonds of passion, youth, optimism, and family further
connect us as we expand our lives.
This brings me to mention my
once upon a time Hermanas' new blog. HerMamas! Any Mom can view
this site and share the wonderful world of being a Mom.
am not a possible Mom or possible Step-Mom yet. Hey ladies, you never
know who you end up with or don't end up with right? But there is one
proud familial title that I share with a number of us fine females. And
that is the Tia (Auntie). I love being an Auntie, Kim Kardashian is an Auntie. I don't know why I mentioned that but I think it is because I
just want to have her money and blow this whole money saving blog thing
and head out to the Bahamas with Kanye whenever. Well, I don't care too
much for Kanye but you get my drift. Kim is an Auntie, I am an Auntie,
and being an Auntie rules.
You get to love your sobrinos like they
are your own. See how much they are like you or not like you. (We do
share the same amount of DNA as the parents do to their kids). And you
get just what might be a small taste of what you can have in the future.
