Pretty Mom’s On-The-Go!

This question is for all the mom’s out there.  What is your opinion on makeup?  Do you wear it all the time? Sometimes? Depends? I like wearing makeup.  I like the way I feel when wearing makeup.  I love it even more when I put it on right and I get compliments. But… I don’t wear it all the time. It’s really rare that I should wear makeup.  It’s not that I’ve never found the right shade or the right {Read More}

Digging through the past…

As my journey continues to find out more about my ancestors, I’ve come to the realization that… ¡Ay mamá! It’s a bigger job than I thought.   I will tell you one thing- it has brought up a whole bunch of questions within my family. Knowing the basics of one or two generations is easy.  I was able to go as far as my abuelitos, tias and tios.  That’s it.   This is where my mom had to come in with the {Read More}

Hola from Hollywood!

I’m here in beautiful Hollywood!  My trip has been great so far.  There seems to be some kind of problem with ATT and phone service is off here in L.A. and even though I am only about an hour away from home, that sense of not being able to call anyone is… weird! Look what I got!  Thank you Walt Disney and DreamWorks Studios!   Also, I just saw the movie Real Steel.  I can’t wait to tell you all {Read More}

Don’t Fret the Sweat- Recap! {Giveaway}

On Monday I told you about a chat that  I co-hosted over on The Motherhood.  Read about the chat here.   We spoke about what we somewhat are experts on: Tweens. My 6 day old teenager has made me an experienced mother in so many things.  His tween years were made for the memory books. Seriously, I can’t wait for the teenage years. Insert sarcasm… NOW! We had the pleasure chatting with renowned parenting expert Rosalind Wiseman. Read a summary of {Read More}

The Tuneables~ I love Music!

It seems that my family is shaping up to be a musical family.  I couldn’t not be more happier about that.  My daddy’s familia  was full of musicians.  So it was no surprise to me when my oldest took up electric guitar and my youngest son, piano. I played the organ growing up.  Oh, yes I did!  I loved it.  Although I stopped playing in High School, I still tinker with the electrical ivories once in a while.  My husband {Read More}

Starting over with Special K {Giveaway}

Do you like Special K?  I have a love/hate relationship with Special K.  I’m just being honest here.  I love that it’s good for me and that the whole weight loss program is fantastic and very effective, but just when I think I have the hang of it… I fall off the wagon.  Then I see the commercials and I feel guilty.  It’s a cycle that I’m sure we’ve all gone through at some point in our “battle of the {Read More}

Dan-o-nino Goodness {Giveaway}

This is a sponsored post! I have another confession to make.  I don’t give my kids milk to drink.  The most they deal with leche is when they have their morning cereal. My 6yo hates milk.  He hates it so much, that my mixing it with chocolate syrup is not working anymore.  So, I’ve had to think of other forms of dairy to serve them. Cheese, I like cheese.  The kids do also, but we all know that cheese is {Read More}

Don’t Fret the Sweat!

Many of you know that I have a tween at home who is in Jr. High.   My tween is in 8th grade and he has the whole “Yeah, I’m an 8th grader” mentality .   Sure, being in 8th grade is fun.  I want him to have fun.  I also want him to realize that High School is just a year away and now is the time to buckle down and work on his grades. Cue the crickets…. Now! I {Read More}

The start of a journey…

Have you ever thought about your ancestors?   I’ve been told stories here and there about my grandparents and such.  I’ve heard stories time and time again about tias and tios and how they were raised on a ranch.  I have, what I consider, my immediate family here in the states.   My mom’s family-all except her 2 sisters- are still in Mexico. So, naturally I am close to the family I have here in Cali. After the passing of my father, {Read More}
