Ditka Dash 2015

What and amazing run we had today!!! Not only did we have fun but we did it for a awesome cause that we should all help out no matter what. Today we put a grand of sand in to support the Special Olympics in today’s Ditka Dash. We did our first run earlier this year as a group and soon I became little attach to these 5ks and wanted to do more this year, I soon found this dash that was supporting the Special Olympics so we decided to do it and man I will never regret on doing it and soon to become a new on going Ditka runner for there up coming causes. Some people wonder why people do these dashes/ runs and why we pay so much for them. But the main cause is to support the organizations and the people they help out. It was a great feeling seeing people that we are supporting cheering us on in the side lines and with a great smile knowing that we are there for them!!!! You don’t know the support and how great it felt seeing them cheer us on in the side line with big smile knowing we can do it!!! I love that we are able to put a smile to their faces and have them know no matter what goes on in their daily lives there will always be people their to back them up… I can’t wait until next years dash…. I’ll leave you here with some pics of today’s run πŸ™‚  

    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
   

Pre Indy 500

What an amazing day today!!! Has to be one of the best days of Spring 2015!!!! Shout out to the LEW Crew in Indianapolis this weekend enjoying the Indy 500!!!!! 

We started our journey to Indianapolis this morning around 8:00 AM starting breakfast at Bob Evans, thank you for whoever made the best decision to have breakfast there I have to say it was the best place to do it with such an amazing group of people. The food was delicious and spending time with every single one of you was better. After having breakfast we kept with our journey to Indianapolis, you know driving with a group of people you need to make the frequent bathroom brakes and in our first stop we did Winamac where we got to see a farm where they make cheese and ice cream!! Was a place I would like to come back and spend a day there!!!  After our fabulous walk in the Oak Farms we continued our journey to Indy.

After a 2 hours drive we arrived to our fabulous Indianapolis Indiana to see the Indy 500 parade !!!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸπŸπŸπŸπŸπŸ the parade was awesome, has to be one of the best parades in my life time as you can see from the few pics I took because most of the time I was amazed of all the work they put into this event and amazing floats!!! When the parade finished we meet up with some great friend of Eddie Gtz that lives out here in Indianapolis who is Rudy he was with his brother Tony and nephew Danny who are so much fun and amazing people. They took us in a 5k walk getting us ready for our next weekend Bubble run unexpectedly thru Indianapolis but man did they take us to an amazing spot to gain all of the calories that we just burned… It was BRU Burger and man did that burger taste soooooo good!!! I’m not sure if it was because we was dying of hunger or because it’s just such an amazing place to eat!!! 

Well after our lovely day getting to Indy and our 5k walk we parted to our resting destination where we will take our lovely nap to get ready for tomorrow’s amazing event the one and only Indy 500!!!! 
Good Night and see you guys tomorrow 

                            

 

 

American Diabetes Association Expo 2015

What an amazing event that American Diabetes Association (ADA) throws every single year!! This year was little different because they celebrated their 75th anniversary years of helping the communities all over the nation bringing awareness to such a cause like diabetes. Its such great feeling helping out a great company like ADA and brining awareness to people that have diabetes or helping those to prevent of getting diabetes. This year was my 4th year volunteering for this expo with the the great help of the LEW Crew that is always there supporting me and the community.

I would like to thank Eddie because if it wast for hime Im not sure if I would have been doing this counter work for so long. He asked me to volunteer four (4) years ago when his brother where doing it to help out the community in bringing awareness to the community mostly to the minority hispanic community. The hispanic minority community part of ADA known as Por Tu Familia is what we been doing all of our volunteer work with for the past 4 years. This year was extremely special for me because I had the crew with me at this event and had a great time with them all. Thank you Adrian, Anel, Ben, Eddie, & Juan for helping out today.

As you can see from the pictures below we help from everyone not only hispanic or minorities, but is are main focus. If you would like to volunteer and spread the word fill free to make a comment bellow so I can contact you have you spend great times with ADA and the LEW Crew in future events.

LEW Crew Meeting

What an amazing way to start of your Sunday with a meeting with your friends!!! 😍 Well today we had a meeting with the crew and talked about some issues that where accruing with the crew and misunderstandings that have happened in the past 3 weeks. It was something that brought up to us yesterday that we needed to get things straightened out before they got worst. I’m glad that we had this talk and seems everything was worked out between everyone.  I would love to get into detail of everything that happened but it’s not worth the time of doing so because there was things where just made up and nonsense. 

But after a lovely talk we got hungry and decide to to go out to eat and Sunrise in Whiting IN not everyone got the chance to eat with us because they had to work or had a Sox game maybe next time we will all sit down and have breakfast together !!! Good times!!!

Happy Birthday Neto!!

Well today we are celebrating Anel’s cousin Netos birthday!!! I am amazed that I was invited to his birthday because he a guy that doesn’t allow to many people to get to know him. Juan & I meet this lovely guy just little less than a year ago in Anels birthday trip to Michigan last year, he was a amazing guy during the trip but never really talked to him afterwards. He is such a great and smart guy and great person to spend time with 😜.

Before heading to his house we went to shop at Petes Fresh Market to get some goodies and food to take with us to the party. Whistle shopping for the party I decide to make taco salad for the group and a get a smash cake. The fun part was having Adrian and I shopping for things to get for our taco salad and Adrian checking out the men and having me pick out everything for the salad.  While Adrian & I shopping for the stuff for the taco salad Blanca, Eddie, & Anel where looking for other things to take with us to party. Anel found a smash cake but was full of a thick chocolate cake!!! I didn’t think that was a good idea so we went to look for another cake and we found a moose cake and was the best decision!!!! Look at the pics below. 

It’s amazing how fast years go by and never notice them until you see your age on the birthday cake πŸ˜’. But it’s a blessing knowing your a year older and doing great! It was crazy and fun shopping for his party and having a blast.

             

Z’s BirthdayΒ 

What a wonderful day today!!! Happy Holy Friday πŸ˜€ and Z’s Birthday today!!! 

Well today Is Z’s birthday and everyone was confused in what to do it how to celebrate it because he is not a person that like people to celebrate his birthday. So we decided to just do what he like to do watch movies!!! 🎬 and lucky him Furious 7 just came out and no one has seen it, we decided to all get together and go with him and I guess semi celebrate his birthday doing so. The LEW Crew and his brothers and sister joined as well to the new movie theater in downtown Chicago Icon On Roosevelt to see this lovely movie but before the movie some gathered to go to the John Hancock building and do the tilt that seems exciting but Juan & I didn’t get a chance to go. 

But little of the movie, was a great movie if you have not seen it you should watch it at the movies it’s a cinema movie not a movie to watch at home. The Paul Walker tribute was so touching had me tear up but also seeing Anel & Blanca crying there asses off made me cry even more 😭 

     

Game Night @ Anel’s…

I love spending quality time with the LEW Crew πŸ˜„ it’s a amazing feeling spending time with my family of friends the people I know that will be there for me when my family can’t. These group of people are my everything, people that I can’t talk to and tell them my problems and they won’t judge me. 

I first would like to thank Anel for hosting the game night, it’s very nice of you for doing such a thing and having us over to eat pizza and play games and be crazy ass people that we are. From playing Mafia to playing The Conjouring is the best…. Games that no matter how old we are we will find a way to entertain ourselves.  There is never a day of game night that we ending up arguing and because of the arguing we change the game. πŸ˜‚ we play more games in one night than most people play in a month lol. Also a great big shout out to our friend Phil from Canada !!!

I would like to thank everyone that made it out today for game night that includes Anel, Adrian, Bryan, Eddie, Ingrid, Jaime, Juan, Tiffany, Michelle, and Z
