Art

In the summer months I took an art class. I learned about the cave paintings in Altamira to Pop Art all the way to the 90’s it was intense but interesting. I have never put a painting on the wall of any of the places I’ve lived…but I think it’s time to change that. On Friday I went to the […]

Double Post!

Hello Everyone! Today I will be posting on two topics. My social media black out and a rare shopping spree… I spent 24 hours off social media! No, it wasn’t because I have extraordinary will power it was because my phone broke. I was forced to be offline. Its hard to admit it but I missed my phone A LOT! There was a small void in my day… yes social media can sometimes be overwhelming or addictive but the void was from the lack of interaction with people. As a stay at home mom, most of the days the only adult I speak to is my husband… so interacting on social media with other parents and people is a little break from mommy duties. Now let us move on to the next topic of the day… I don’t know about other parents but ever since I became one… I’ve become less focused on what I wear .. you can usually find me with my hair in a messy bun, a t-shirt, leggings or jeans and wearing a pair of Keds. If I buy something for my self… is going to be from the under $20 section at Old Navy (nothing wrong with Old Navy… I love it.. budget friendly for the whole family and  I think all my clothes might be from there). So yes I spend little money on my self, that includes my watches.. I have 3 and […]

What’s your number?

Before you start reading I want to clarify that I do not judge people on their physical appearance. If you are happy with the way you look then that’s all that matters. My number is 186.8… I never thought I would share my weight with the world but yeah I currently weight 186.8 lb. For some reason, since I became […]

Portion Control

This isn’t an easy topic to write about, no one wants to admit that they are wrong and I’m not the exception. I need to be honest with all of you. I’ve been struggling with the amount of food I eat for the past two years. The Background: With all my pregnancies I’ve struggle with morning sickness ( I call […]

30 Before 30

The countdown has begun, in 30 days I will be 30 years old. My 20’s were all about becoming a mother and a wife. This means that in the last decade I have not invested in my self as much. So my 30’s are going to be about growth and change while continuing my journey as a mother and a wife. I came up with many ideas, I chose 30 things that I would like to either accomplish, re-introduce and try in my life. I won’t call it a bucket list because my bucket list is mostly travelling around the world. This is my 30 before 30 list. Start a Blog Get those tattoos I’ve put off for years No Social Media for a day (Hubby will be posting on that day) Go Vegan for a day Loose 8 lb Water fast for a day Introduce a 15 min HIIT work out twice a week Review a product/products Read the Psalm book Reorganize my (our) closet No Netflix for a day ( I watch an episode of The Office a day) Spa Day Get in the habit of waking up at 6:00 a.m. Monday to Friday Try some Korean BBQ (I’ve been wanting to try it for the last 15 years! Get a painting from a local artist for the leaving room Decorate the dinning room (there is nothing on the walls of our main floor) Recycle all the cans […]

With the kids

Be prepared to be interrupted at least 5 times within a 2 minute expand which is what is happening as I write this… In my experience you need patience and more than usual when you are travelling with your little ones. Also be prepared but do not freak out if the plan you had come up with to entertain  them  goes out the window because it most likely will. Try to keep them awake at least 2 hours before you are travelling (specially by plane). Ideally walk with them at least once in a period of 2 hours, this way they are able to burn a bit of energy. Hubby and I have choose to travel by car most of the times because of the flexibility the mode of transportation (you are able to stop at any rest stop and if needed change your plans). We all know the stares people give you with a screaming infant or toddler in a crowded airplane and we just like to avoid that if possible. The following is  a list of objects that I have found useful when travelling by car, bus or plane Bring snacks Cereals, chewy bars, trail mix, chips Apple and baby carrots (usually there is no leakage and they do not get spoiled as fast) Candy yes try lollipops or their favorite chocolate bar Entertainment Crayons and activity book Story book Stickers Post it notes Tablets with a ton […]

The 1st Kingdom

Most families have traditions that are passed down for hundreds of years. In the case of my family (hubby, kids and I) we are starting a lot of new traditions since we both grew up in very different countries, cultures and religion ( He was born in India and as you know I was born in Colombia). One of those […]
