    Whimsical Ocean Birthday party

    This Whimsical Ocean Birthday party was an inspiration of the venue were we celebrate Mia’s 4th birthday. I would’ve never imagine celebrating an Ocean or Under the sea theme for my daughter’s birthday because her birthday it’s in fall, almost winter  (November). We celebrated her birthday at an indoor playground were all the decor is Ocean related.  We usually have a small birthday party at our house every year, with tons of DIY projects.  But this year with a one month old lil sister, that wasn’t a choice for me. So we chose to celebrate at an indoor playground and make it simple but special. Must of the invitations were…

    Floral Greenery Baby Shower

    I had been loving for a long time the floral greenery Baby shower themes. It’s a simple, elegant, timeless and kind of an easy theme to find matching things. A dear friend organized and hosted a baby shower for me and she proposed the greenery theme, which of course I loved. Living far away from your home country makes this type of events kind of hard to celebrate away from your family, and friends. 4 Years ago we had a Long distance baby shower (you can look more about it here) , it was unique, we all felt loved and my little one was celebrated in a different cute way.…

    Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle Recipe

    A couple of months ago I try The Good Pop Hibiscus popsicles at HEB  as soon as I tried them, I knew I had to re create that Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle recipe. It was one of the most refreshing popsicles I have tried, it was not a regular hibiscus popsicle. The mint gives the popsicle a super refreshing flavor. I fell in love with the combination.  I bet you have had before hibiscus tea or Hibiscus Agua Fresca, if you haven´t, you are missing a lot! The hibiscus flower is known for its refreshing red color  and vitamin C content. You can buy it any Latin American grocery store.…

    Salpicón guatemalteco (Beef ceviche)

    The Salpicón from Guatemala is probably the food I miss the most. If you have never had salpicón before, think as it is a beef salad or beef ceviche. Ideal for summer days.   It’s super easy to make and you will have lots of portions it’s really abundant.  It’s so abundant that sometimes I will make half recipe and with the other half of the meat I make Carne Fría. The hard thing for me was to find the right meat, because I wasn’t sure what type of beef I should use, the beef cuts in USA are really different from Latin America. After some research I found out I…

    Montessori metal insets tracing tray DIY

    I came up with this DIY Montessori tracing tray, to help stabilize the insets while my daughter traces shapes. My daughter is ready to start writing, in fact she can already trace a couple of letters. So I bought  this wooden, smaller, cheaper version of metal insets but I couldn’t find a tracing tray for this smaller version.  What is exactly a Montessori metal inset?  The Metal Insets are used in preparation for writing, to help control of writing movements and changing directions. You can learn more about how to use the insets in this article from How we Montessori   and on this other link from Info Montessori you will…
