      Actually, working at a rest. really isn't a bad idea! I'm in college & had taken some spanish courses, and I worked at a mexican resteraunt for a couple of months (as the person doing the register so I could speak english w/ the customers & handling money) and the guys there taught me SO MUCH! Then..most of the guys were married to women who spoke english as a first language, and they were able to help me even more, b/c they spoke fluent english & fluent spanish..and they knew the "regular" way to speak spanish..not all prim & proper like class teaches you.

      So maybe you could find someone to just tutor you..speaking regularly w/ someone who knows the language well will teach you A LOT! :)

          I'm thinking a class is going to work better for me. I'm the kinda person that needs to be in front of the class to understand what's going on!!!
          I've definitely had a passion for the language. I can remember the first time I had lessons - in DAYCARE! haha It was love at first sight lol

          And yeah, about having a Spanish last name... when I get married I'm going to be "JAIME LOPEZ" OMG I refuse to go by that name living in a heavily populated spanish area. It's bad enough when Blockbuster, CVS, etc. call me and the recording goes "This message is for Hi-me Miller..." bwahahahahaha! Also, during prom season in HS I got all the tuxedo ads... sheesh! So now I've decided that I will start going by both my first and middle names "Jaime Lynne" when I take on the last name Lopez I mean, can you imagine being at the DMV or something and them calling "Jaime Lopez" what their reactions would be when a blond, fair skinned girl with FRECKLES and green eyes walks up to the counter?? LMAO

          We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

          We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

            You are too funny!!! Yup ur picture does not reflect a Jaime LOPEZ!!!!!!!
            I guess we all have to deal with those kinda things.
            When I'm at work and we are flying to say El Paso or Harlingen I have passengers coming up to me & just start speaking spanish. AND they have attitude when I don't speak it back to them! I mean, hell I wish I knew how! No need to be upset!!

                    Thank you Samantha! We had them done the week before the trip we got engaged on so I opted not to do engagement photos as we had just done family photos.

                      Uno, Hola, Gracias!!!! That's seriously the extent of my spanish (sad I know) My FI got the Rossetta spanish thing and he learned it incredibly fast. He's also a smarty-pants, but I have heard only good things about Rossetta. Good luck!
