Fun Night


Tonight, we decided to have ourselves a movie night.  We rented The Tooth Fairy, got some yummy snacks and a bottle of passion fruit wine.  We also decided to crack open a nice bottle of champagne that my husband had received a while back. 

We were saving the champagne for something special.  What could be more special then to spend the night with the family and celebrate that my husband already has an interview for a summer internship and classes haven’t even started.

Yummy Korean Feast

On Monday (June 7th, 2010), my mom invited some of her Korean friends over so they could help her prepare some yummy land crabs (also known as blue crabs)


This is how everything turned out after they were done!



Extra pic!

Crabs, crab broth, rice, lettuce and some other Korean dishes.

Have you ever tried Korean food?

Do you like eating crabs?

What happens after visiting Korean Church?


Today we went to Korean church with my mom and youngest sister.  After the service they always have the most delicious Korean dishes-forgot to take my camera with me.

On the way home, my son fell asleep as well as my husband.  When we arrived home, we didn’t want our son to wake up so my husband just took the baby out of the car along with the car seat.  Needless to say, my son did not wake up and my husband decided to continue his nap.


Yesterday (Saturday, June 5th, 2010) my husband, son, mom, sister and I went shopping at Plaza las Americas, the biggest shopping center in the Caribbean.  It’s located approximately an hour and fifeen minutes east from where we live.


imageAfter leaving the mall we headed towards Old San Juan to get our favorite treat.  As you can see we got some yummy frozen yogurt from Blizz!

My sister got raspberry frozen yogurt with almonds, strawberries and blackberries.  I got the original flavor with white chocolate chips, strawberries and mango.

This is the best frozen yogurt I have ever had!  I would compare it it to Pinkberry’s frozen yogurt.

What frozen yogurt chains are in your area?

Snack: A Healthy Alternative

Last night I was craving something sweet but I didn’t want to indulge my sweet tooth by eating ice cream or cake.

Instead, I opted for a sweet, healthy concoction.


Campoverde Jumbo Strawberries are ideal for smoothies and shakes.

100% all natural, no sugar, preservatives or additives of any kind!

I love strawberries!


Milk helps keep bones and teeth healthy and strong!

I prefer to drink light milk.

Take a couple of the frozen strawberries and some milk and throw them in your blender. 

If you like your smoothies more on the creamy side make sure to add extra strawberries. 

If you prefer your smoothie to be more liquidy then add more milk.

Add your sweetener of choice if you like really sweet things

When you’re done mixing, pour into the glasses of your preference!

Enjoy by eating with a spoon or drinking it with a straw.



To make your smoothies even more appetizing top them with bite size strawberry pieces.

What kind of smoothies do you like?

NOTD: Pink


I did my nails last night and as you can see I kept them quite simple.  I’m not really one to use bubblegum pinks but I thought I’d give it a try to see if I could channel my inner girly girl, LOL.  I think this is a really cute color to showoff during the summer. I thought I’d make my nails more girly by adding a cute flower design on the ring finger.

Products Used:

* Yellow Stopper Nail Polish (Base coat)
* Sinful Nail Color (1 coat on nail bed)
* Milani Nail Art in Green Sketch (stem)
* Milani Nail Art in Yellow Design (petals)
* Pro Salon Formula Clear Nail Polish (top coat




I did my nails on Tuesday and by yesterday I had already peeled off the coats of polish!  Usually I tend to do just one coat of colored polish on the nail bed and this time I did two…must have been that.

Products Used:

* Yellow Stopper Nail Polish (Base coat)
* Bettina Nail Polish in Art Deco Green (2 coats on nail bed)
* Bettina Nail Polish in Art Deco Purple (dots)
* Milani Nail Art in Yellow Design (vertical line)
* Pro Salon Formula Clear Nail Polish (top coat)

What's going on momma?


We took our son to a new doctor today (Friday, June 4th 2010)-his pediatrician doesn’t see patients on Friday and I couldn’t  get a hold of her because both of her office phones had been disconnected (so weird).

While we waited to go in to see the doctor my son decided to call his abu (abuelo-grandfather) on a little toy phone.  Needless to say he was a bit confused when he saw that the number buttons were not on the actual phone.

Project 365 (5)

Keeping up with this project is more difficult than I thought!


One of the 3 best pizzas I’ve ever had!  Hand made crust smothered in mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, onions, peppers and just the right amount of marinara sauce.

The other two best slices of pizza I’ve ever had are from Danny’s International Pizza in (Condado) San Juan, Puerto Rico and from a pizza parlor in Atlanta, Georgia –close to the new Comfort Inn near the airport.

What's the best slice of pizza you ever had?

Project 365 (4)

Today (Wednesday, June2nd, 2010) was a family day spent with my husband, son, mom and baby sister.  After spending the afternoon at Fort Buchannan we went out to dinner to a restaurant called Boom in the city of Bayamon.


I ordered a Pina Colada and of course, my son had to try it.  He still uses a bottle to drink his milk and a sippy cup to drink his juice but, he goes out of his way to drink anything with a straw.  Afterward my son entertained us for a bit by playing the game: “Let’s throw the menu on the floor before Daddy can catch it.”  It was a really good day!

Skin care: Neutrogena

Summer is around the corner and with it many of us decide to spend more time in the sun.  It’s very important to protect our skin against the harmful UVB and UVA rays.

I always use a daily facial moisturizer with SPF 15. But, if I know I’m going to spend an extraordinary amount of time under the sun I like to use a sunscreen lotion with  a SPF 50 or higher on my face and body.

I was running low on my facial moisturizer so I decided it was time to try on something new and this is what I got:



Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 from Neutrogena


My husband My husband is a little bit more on the whiter side, so he wears sunscreen with a high SPF on  a regular basis. He was running low on sunscreen and this is what he got:


Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock with SPF 85 from Neutrogena

I’ll be writing a review of both products after I’ve used them for a little while.

What SPF products do you use?

Project 365 (3)


It’s been raining a lot in Puerto Rico for the last week or so and today was no exception.

I took this pic outside my parents house because I liked how you could see that ray of light peeking out amongst the clouds

Project 365(2)

I know, I know…I couldn’t put up yesterday’s pic because I fell asleep putting my son to bed! I will try my best not to do this again.



My son loves his books! He sometimes likes to sit down with his books to “read”.
