  4. OMG...Maria Felix is an absolute ICON! She was such a fierce lady that really paved the way for so many LATINAS! That necklace is 2D4! Wonder how much it cost! Omg, honey...that is kinda scary to have Crocs or Alligators just swimming in your backyard...make sure you don't open the door to your neighbors! LMAO.

    Muahhhz,
