Please pray for Sofia Helina!

Now this may sound crazy but Sofia Helina is the newborn baby of the Blackberry representative that helped me get my phone working again. His name is Terrance Crombie. I love my blackberry even more because of his customer service. He is the shit! I told him that plenty of times after he helped me lol. After spending over three and a half hours with him on the phone, we obviously got a chance to talk and get to know each other a little. Think about it… a customer service call that lasted over three and a half hours! How could I not engage into a great conversation with Terrance? He was completely patient and helped me reinstall my blackberry because the data software was corrupted.

Sofia Helina is only 8 days old but was born a pre-mature baby ten weeks early. They had to inject a steroid in her lungs so they could fully develop. She had a full head of black hair, but they had to shave it to connect the IV from the baby’s head. It looks like they won’t be able to bring her home for a few months. He said she looks just like her Mom and had over 4 baby showers; her friends, her family, co-workers, his family. I told him this baby is definitely blessed and loved with that many baby showers lol.

Terrence said he held her for the first time yesterday and was crying like a baby. It always warms my heart when I see a Father loving his Daughter. Makes me think of my Papa.

I wanted to share this story with you, because I truly believe in the power of prayer. Please pray for Sofia Helina in hopes for a fast recovery so that the Crombie family can bring her home sooner than expected.

Thanks! 🙂

FRUSTRATED!

I don’t know what happened to my phone yesterday but it sucks not getting blackberry internet service on my phone right now. I can’t get any of my emails or blackberry messages 🙁 I can’t even send any pics to my BeenUp2 either. It’s crazy how much my life depends on my mobile device. I feel like I’m disconnected from the world walking out of the house naked with no clothes on lol. All I can do is make calls and send texts… oh and lurk The Underground too hehe.

Freakin’ AT&T customer service is closed on Sunday… boo! *thumbs down*

*sigh* It could be worse.

Well I’m about to get ready to meet Arianny at Bare (the pool at The Mirage).

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

It’s my father’s 54th birthday today!

I am the baby out of three and I’ll never deny that I am Daddy’s little girl.

I love talking about my Papa…

I’m very proud of my father and the many accomplishments he has made throughout his life. He retired from the Air Force out of 20 years as a musician and vocalist. Technical Sargent Mel Suguitan is his military title. Growing up my Dad has had Air Force Military Pop Bands, RnB Bands, and Rock Bands. He was even a part of the Band of the Golden West. He sang the National Anthem for former President Ronald Reagan and even performed for our troops during Desert Storm too. After he retired, he went back to school to get his teaching credentials and now teaches Choir, Orchestra, and Mariachi at Ceasar Chavez High School in Stockton, CA. Yes, you read right. My Dad is a Mariachi teacher and he is Filipino. As a matter of fact, he is the first teacher to ever teach Mariachi in the San Joaquin County. He has received awards from the Stockton Unified School District.

My Dad was put on this earth to teach music (Oh and to have me too of course! lol) His passion to teach music goes way beyond words. He loves it. His students love him. I even get Myspace messages from his former students asking me about my Dad. Wait… that’s not it! My Dad is even the choir teacher at our church that my family has been going to for decades.

Put it like this… my Dad is the shit!

Growing up my sister and I would always watch boxing with my Dad. And now that his Baby works in the MMA industry whenever there is a fight we always call each other. It’s such a great bond to have with my Dad. His favorite fighter is Urijah Faber and after Urijah’s last fight my Dad called me just as I was walking out the press conference and talking with Urijah. I told Urijah that my Dad said Congratulations and put Urijah on the phone. Urijah told my Dad that I did a great job braiding his hair lol and my Dad told him he was awesome and enjoyed watching his fight. But to have my Dad talk to his favorite fighter after he just saw him fight on TV… that’s pretty freakin’ cool! I knew it would make my Papa happy hehe.

He is 350 miles away from me and whenever I miss my Papa I always play this YouTube video of him singing with his students.

And every time I hear Beyonce’s Daddy song I always cry. I remember the first time I heard it I had to pull over because my mascara was getting in my eyes and I couldn’t drive anymore. It really hits me right here in the heart.

Whenever I get married I know I am gonna cry the most when I get to have my Father Daughter dance. That’s how much my Papa means to me. He has taught me to believe in myself and never give up. He has given me the best example of what a man truly is. He’s been with my Mom since high school and to this day still grabs her hand and treats her like his Queen. He is always there when I need him and is the Best Dad in the World. I’m very thankful to have my Papa.

Happy Birthday Daddy! I love you and Mom more than anything. Thank you for reminding me to always keep my faith in God and giving me your unconditional love.

♥ Your Baby

Errrr I wish I could go!

Sucks I won’t be able to make it to Joel Vera’s birthday party at Alliance tomorrow. It pretty much bums me out. I wish I could be at two places at the same time.

I wanted to wish him a Happy Birthday on my site, even though he already got a text and phone call. He’s just a little cutie pie I wanna pinch his butt HAHA. I tease his sister Michelle about him every time I see her too lol.

I don’t think you guys understand what it’s like to party with the Vera’s. They are off the chains! Brandon his wife Kerry, Michelle, and Joel all know how to have a good time. That’s why I’m sooooo jealous I won’t be able to make it to San Diego. Plus, we haven’t partied together since Brandon’s last fight and I miss them.

Tagg Radio with Don Frye and Stone Trigg

This morning I stopped by the Tagg Radio studio in Las Vegas, NV. When I called Gorgeous George, a good friend and Tagg Radio host, to let him know I was coming into town last night, he was pre-celebrating his birthday with his brother, Brian aka Goze, who is another host on the show along with celebrity fighter Frank Trigg. Goze’s birthday was on September 23rd and today is George’s birthday. With that said, I’d like to wish them both a Happy Birthday. 🙂

Don Frye was in the studio along with the latest addition to the Trigg family, Stone. Stone is Frank’s three week old baby boy. Nici, Trigg’s wife looked freakin’ amazing for having a baby only three weeks ago. As soon as I walked in Stone was sleeping right on his Daddy’s chest. My heart melted. Stone is adorable!

There were a lot of people in the Combat Chat and over 101 viewers viewing the Tagg Radio webcam. I promised the chatters that I would blog about them with a shout out. So here goes… thank you Tagg Radio regulars for your continuous love and support throughout this past year. Chatters: .n3m, Ashley84, Aubrey, cjrrez, crklyn408, Dennis, Dick Barrymore, dru-tj, Elvis, fng, gmunit, importimageracing, j2k813, jrothman888, JuggermautJs, ktims86, libraporlibra, MuMbLeS, Paks, Sammytsquid, sanguiness, Shark_Tank, t.west, VIPete

I love going into the Combat Chat the mornings that I can. Every morning from 9AM to 10:30AM Tagg Radio puts on a great MMA radio show. I love knowing that if I look at my clock and it’s 9:30AM, I could just tune into the show and log into the Combat Chat and get my daily dose of MMA. I’ve been listening to Tagg Radio for over a year now and I am very proud of all of their accomplishments. I always get happy when I see a Tagg Radio link on www.MMAJunkie.com in one of their articles. I know how much passion these guys have for the sport and it’s refreshing to see how far they have come. I love me some Tagg Radio!

Well, I’m heading to Mr. Olympia at the Las Vegas Convention Center soon to see if I could get any potential nutrition and supplement companies to come out to our next IMMAE.

Be prepared for really great blogs for this weekend. 🙂
