Hola from Mexico!

Azul, dolfees party 366

Never in a million years would I have thought that I would be writing a post from Mexico.  I am currently on the Mayan Riviera, close to Cancun Mexico. I am here on a press trip with Fisher-Price and Azul Beach Hotel but what I am more grateful for, is the fact that I am in Mexico, again. I did not grow up here.  The most I’d spend in Mexico is about 1 week. I can’t believe that it’s been {Read More}

It’s official! Homeschooling, here we come!

Last week my son officially became a homeschooling student.  This is one curve ball that I did not see coming. My son had been struggling in school.  A lot.  This past school year, 8th grade, was the tip of the iceberg.  I tried to help my son as much as I could.  The school, although it’s a great school district, did nothing to get my son the help that he needs.  One teacher even went as far as telling me {Read More}

Add a little kick Cherry Vanilla or Paradise Mango to your Pepsi for a cool summer!

Today and tomorrow, we are expecting hot temps with some lovely humidity mixed in.  Although we’ve been spending a lot of times out doors, once the temperature is overwhelming for me, I hide in the coolness of my room. Don’t we all? Still, the time spent outdoors is time well spent with familia and friends.  Picnics, carne azadas and parties are best when the food is great and the drinks are refreshing.  I have to admit something, though… there’s nothing {Read More}

Clorox Fraganzia For Your Home {Giveaway}

Keeping up with the messes kids make is hard.  Even more so during summer vacation.  My husband (the clean freak) is having a field day with the crumbs and spills from breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Little by {Read More}
