National Noodle Day!

Today is National Noodle Day. And I simply can not pass up the opportunity to help celebrate.  Noddles come in all forms and cuisines.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter to me.  I love noodles! Now, there is no way that I am being biased here. Well.. maybe a little.  My favorite type of pasta is Asian noodles.   Although I am picky when it comes to certain Asian food, there is always room for noodles.  Whether it be egg or rice, flat {Read More}

Mother Goose Club

No matter how old your kids get, the comfort of knowing nursery rhymes- never gets old.  Do you believe that?  My husband did not grow up here in the states.  When my eldest would come home from preschool and sing nursery rhymes, the majority of the songs… he did not know. I love nursery rhymes.  I don’t know if that’s a girl or a Mom thing.  I can sit and sing nursery rhymes with my kids for as long as {Read More}

Digging up stuff!

My sister, my mom and I just wrapped up a 5 hour long search on Ancestry.com.   I have to tell you that my mom wasn’t too excited when we finally started inputting information on-line. The first thing she told me was “No quiero toda esta información en el internet.”  I reassured her that whatever info we find- It’s already on the internet! For privacy reasons I will not be posting names and places.  We started off with my maternal grandmother.  {Read More}

Real Steel- Movie Review

I saw the movie Real Steel last weekend.  Have you seen the trailers?  I was a little apprehensive about seeing the movie.  My first initial thoughts were “It’s a boy movie.”  I generally don’t like typical boy movies.  When I first saw the trailer, I saw robots, boxing, fighting and metal.  For me it all screamed Boys, boys, boys.  Here is the trailer and then the synopsis and then I will continue on with my review.   A gritty, white-knuckle, {Read More}

Earth’s Own Almond and Rice milk! {Local Giveaway}

I think everyone can agree with me that milk is good for you.  I like milk..sometimes.  Of course I eat cereal with milk.  When baking requires water, I always add milk instead. Banana liquados… can you say yum?   Unfortunately, some of my kids have the opposite feeling towards leche. If your kids have any dairy allergies I’m sure the dairy aisle at the market has been more of a burden and a great shopping experience.  My kids don’t have food {Read More}

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}
