Go Go Gadget Anjelah!

Every December I feel like I’m being pulled in all directions with so many things on my plate. . . Seriously. . . Borderline gluttonous with my over flowing plate! This past December was no different. It started off with 8 sold out shows in Irvine, Ca. (Thanks Irvine)

Then I was honored with the opportunity to host a benefit along with Affion Crockett for my homie Steelo Vazqez (www.steelo444.com). Steelo is an amazing dancer and actor who suffered 4 ruptured brain aneurysms. He is currently learning how to walk and talk all over again and has been in the hospital for months. At his event, to raise money for his recovery, we had the Jabbawockies, The Beat Freaks, LXD, Wayne Brady,and so many other awesome performers. It was heartwarming to see everyone come out for a good cause and to show they care even if they had never met Steelo.

Two days after that we filmed a music video for a brand new “artist”you may have heard of. She goes by the name of Bon Qui Qui. That’s right! If you haven’t heard, Bon Qui Qui recorded her first song and music video set to be released in February. Look out for her single called, “Im’a Cut You” on iTunes. It was a great shoot thanks to so many wonderful people . . and I have a new respect for weaves!

A couple days later we celebrated my dads 60th birthday party at Celito Lindo in San Jose. We surprised him with family members and old friends from LA, Idaho, Arizona, and Kansas. Cero from Cake Expressions (who did my wedding cake) hooked it up with an awesome Harley Davidson themed cake for my dad. The place was decorated to the fullest by Party Fiesta Balloon Decor. Dj Jammin J, who is a known Dj in San Jose, was spinning the old school funk all night long (no one broke a hip!). It was a perfect night for my dad. He felt so loved and blessed. I’m so glad we were able to do that for him. He deserves it. We stayed in San Jose for a few days before flying out to New York for a quick Christmas trip. Nothing like Christmas in New York! We saw the

Rockettes, ate great food, and just enjoyed the city.

Once we got back to LA I threw in some hectic Christmas shopping and ridiculous parking lots at the mall where I tried not get in a fight with an old lady who stole my parking spot ( I clearly had my blinker on) then we were on our way home to the family! My Puerto Rican in-laws experienced their first Mexican Christmas. Well, Mexican-American Christmas because we order our tamales instead of make them at home. (I know!) We used to make them but then my grandma died and now none of us know what to do with ourselves.  So the Mexican lady in the grocery store parking lot hooks it up every year.(I think she’s someone else grandma so that counts.. Right?!) We played my dad’s annual Christmas money games, “Who Wants To Be a Hundred Dollionaire!” (Not hosted by Regis, in case you were confused.) We play about 5 different gambling games and a super hardcore athletic game where you have to throw a quarter against the wall and the quarter closest to the wall wins. Be sure to stretch before you play, you don’t want to mess up your throwing arm. My brother Mitchell walked away the big winner this year with $74! Not quite enough to make it rain, but he can make it drizzle I guess. I closed out 2011 with 8 sold out shows at Tommy T’s, plenty of Starbucks gift cards, and 1 bowl of menudo. So even though my December month was crazy busy as usual, I’m so blessed to have my plate overflowing! I was able to see fans, friends, and family and that’s what the holiday is about, right? (That and eating tons of food before the new years resolutions kick in!) I’m looking forward to what 2012 has to offer and hope you’ll come along for the ride!

    I know that there are probably millions of bloggers out there. I also know that there a small percentage of them make money from blogging. Does anyone out there do this, (make money from blogging) and how do they do it?.
