La Abuelita and Camila Do Disney World

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Since my girl doesn’t get to see her Abuelita very much, we’re always looking for excuses to get the two of them together. We try to get to El Salvador at least once per year, and my mom tries to visit us in Los Angeles once a year as well. This year we were able to find the perfect excuse to spend some amazing quality time together and create the best kind of memories at Disney World in Orlando. IRead More ...

As a busy and time-crunched mom, it’s easy to get lost in the craziness of our endless to-do lists and just getting through the everyday routines. To top it off, we have to be our kids playmates, teachers, mentors, captain, event coordinator and guide. And that’s not even counting what it takes to be a wife and just stay sane and healthy! Amidst it all, everyday I make an effort to spend quality time with my girl and give herRead More ...

I just LOVED watching the first episode of the newly launched “Mi Vida Con Toty” show on the new You Tube channel NuevOn. “Toty” is the apodo, or nickname, to which Sofia Vergara answers to when called by her closest family and friends. The star of this show is Manolo, Sofías son, who takes us into a hilarious glimpse into his life as the son of a Latina celebrity in Hollywood. The first episode, “Menos Hollywood, Más Barranquilla/Less Hollywood, MoreRead More ...

Growing Seeds of Change {Video}

Posted by: | 21 Comments

For years now I’ve toyed with the idea of growing our own fruit and vegetable garden in a raised bed in our backyard. I took a weekend class, I read several blogs and books and had even kinda figured out how to get it done, and then life got chaotic and we never went through with it. It’s still something I really want to do because I love the idea of knowing where some of my food came from andRead More ...

My Easter Confession + More Cascarones Love

Posted by: | 1 Comment

I have to admit the traditional American Easter celebration with bunnies, egg hunts and such still feels new to me. As much as I grew up with both the U.S. and Salvadoran traditions, in El Salvador Easter week was Semana Santa; and that meant a week of beach and religious celebrations. This is honestly the first year we’ve gone all out with a visit from the Easter bunny, an egg hunt and, claro, learning how to make cascarones (confetti EasterRead More ...
