Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Super Busy Lately

I have been such a slacker lately at updating the blog! Let's just say things have been super busy with us. Not so much fun and exciting stuff, but work has definitely been taking up some extra time lately. Stephen is still with North Dallas Bank and doing great! I am still with Publicis, but have made some changes internally. My account that I've been working on the last two years decided to take advertising in house (the economy is affecting everyone these days) and I have been moved on to the Glaxo Smith Kline account (GSK-pharmaceuticals). This is a great opportunity that I am excited to explore. Just say a little prayer that the transition is smooth. =) This transition and helping out on 3 new business pitches has kept me very busy, but definitely thankful that I have a job and for the paycheck!
We have managed to get in some good times in the past couple of weeks that I'll update you all on...

We have planned a big family trip to Italy! Stephen and I initially planned it and then thought everyone might want to join us in this once in a lifetime adventure, so we invited both of our families to join us. We are going to have a fabulous trip at the end of May with Steve's parents, my mom and her friend and Steph and Gene. It will be blast and we are really looking forward to a nice break, good eating and good times with the family!

We also celebrated Mom Mota's birthday March 25th. We all got together and celebrated with a delicious Italian dinner and cake and gifts back at Steph's house. Mom Mota got a lot of good stuff to prepare her for the big trip. =)

We also got a chance to meet up with some good friends last Friday night at a benefit for a guy with Ewing Sarcoma. One of my co-workers performed to raise money and we went to watch them. Good times for a good cause and great entertainment. =)

We are looking forward to a fun Easter weekend!
