As I look out the window… I find my self reminiscing about this last year and decade. I see the beautiful events like my wedding, having kids, graduating college, traveling and meeting wonderful people. I feel happiness.I also see the negative things. The economic struggles, the strugleswith the triplets pregnancy, the death of my mother, health scares with the kids […]

Today is the day! I’M 30!!!! AAAAHHHH!!I’m that woman… the one who wears wrinkly t-shirts, wears very little make up, has babies first, gets married after, and finishes University after 30. The one that has stretchmarks, a small bum and a big nose. The one that choose to be a mom over having a career. The one that loves reggaeton […]
Since I had my 1st child years ago I started a memory book that contains mementos of my child’s pregnancy and birth. The triplets memory book was a challenged. I decided to go with the .. each child gets one memory book. I’ll be the first one to admit it… this isn’t my best work. I wanted to get all […]
I was 15 years old the first time I heard about Korean BBQ… it took another 15 years for me to make it to a Korean BBQ restaurant. I took my sister who is visiting from Colombia while my husband took care of the kids. The verdict on Korean BBQ….. I LOVE IT! We had beef, chicken, calamari, fish and […]
The first cookware set I bought it was from Walmart. The second was a gift from my parents and it lasted 8 years. Last week I bought what I call my first “grown up” cookware set. I spent around 2 hours doing some research. I looked for online and in-store deals. I came across the brand Paderno. The brand is […]
A person I love has been battling leukemia for over a year. Blood transfusions have been a life line for them. Now is time to give back. I feel that is important to clear one thing… this post isn’t for praise. This post is to bring awareness to the importance of donating blood. The process is very smooth. You get, […]
If you are consistent with your workouts I’m little tiny bit jealous. I’ve always understood the importance of exercise. I’ve experienced the benefits and the feeling after the work out… amazing. So why am I not working out…. Am I lazy or exhausted or both?… I’m gonna go with both Being a full time mom to 5 boys and a full time student is sometimes exhausting. Once the triplets were born I had to pause a lot of things in my life and exercise was one of them. Yes, I move around a lot during the day but that is not exercise… I’ve decided to start from 0. During the triplets pregnancy I lost a lot of muscle mass. For the last couple of days I’ve started my daily routine with this ( https://youtu.be/wPpObC5PnwM ) work out from the momsintofitness YouTube channel. It has been challenging.. I have a long way to go just to get back to my pre pregnancy fitness level. I’m sharing this with all of you because I need to be accountable. I will post some updates on this once a month. I know I will eventually get stronger but right now it feels impossible to achieve my goal.. *Remember to always speak with your health care provider before starting any diet or exercise.
In recent years, we’ve heard Margaret Atwood’s name quite a bit. The Handmaid’s Tale TV show has been a successful hit. The story has also been relevant in the women’s movements, specially in the U.S.A. I have never read her books but today that is going to change. As you know by now I got a bunch of kids running around. Whenever I get the chance to read a book I use ebooks. I would prefer to read the printed version but I can’t risk going to the library or having the kids rip the book apart. Today, I logged into the library’s catalog and I went to look for the Handsmaid’s Tale. All the copies are checked out so I browsed to see what else was there. I came across Moral Disorder. I liked the cover, it was available and I checked it out.. Today I’ll start reading the book… I’ll try my best to finish it by the 12th! Happy Reading!
