    Glamping in Antigua Guatemala

    Every summer we visit our family in Guatemala, my parents wanted to spend some quality time with us this time so we went glamping to Antigua Guatemala. We headed to Antigua and had lunch at an amazing restaurant “Los tres tiempos”, it’s located at “La calle del Arco”,  the  decor and food is an inspiration of Guatemala culture, I had a “chuchito souffle” it was delicious.  After lunch we went to the local market and then we checked in at Casa Santo Domingo. If you ever go to Antigua, Casa Santo Domingo is a must visit place, it’s s a luxury one of a kind hotel with a museum, spa,…

    Pineapple sorbet

    I can’t find words to describe how spectacular it’s the taste of this sorbet, the cinnamon topping adds a unique flavor! I know! we are just in January and it’s cold, very cold, but over here we love ice cream, especially if it´s homemade. I made the recipe using an ice cream machine but you can do it without a machine. One of the most frequent problems when making sorbets, it’s that as soon as you freeze it, it becomes really hard like a solid brick of ice and loses the soft and smooth texture. I found a blog post “sorbet 101¨ at Zoe Bakes, in which she explains that the…

    A weekend in Austin with a toddler

    We just came back from Austin and in conclusion we want to move to Austin some day LoL. We felt in love with Austin, we had been there before but we didn’t had the time to explore the city.  We started our trip with a stop at an RC track because the main purpose of the trip was a RC race Cris had that weekend. So we stopped and it was soooo hot! There was no place with AC at the track and you know Texas in the summer, not good without a pool if you are outdoors, Mia didn’t see to mind that much, she was playing with her…

    Museum of Fine Arts Houston Playdate + Tiny’s Milk & Cookies

    Summer time in Houston immediately calls for indoor locations to play and entertain kids and adults. Since I moved to Houston everyone has recommend me to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, I really never felt a big interest in going until I saw they were having the temporary exhibition Pixel Forest and Worry Will Vanish by Pipilotti Rist, I knew it would be really delightful for Mia and me, a time of stimulation and relaxation at the same time. We went on a Tuesday at 10:45am to the play date they host every Tuesday, it was a unique experience of story time, each month they focus on a different work of art.  They…

    Free Easter egg hunt Printables

    Easter is in less than two weeks, and I already begin to have a few things ready for egg hunting.  I designed this bunnies to decorate the backyard and to give Mia  signs of where  she should look for the eggs.  At the beginning I thought I wanted them to be raised from the grass with wooden stakes, but it was not really necessary they look really cute standing directly on the grass. To make them, just download my free  Easter egg hunt printable, print it on  heavy card stock and cut around. You can tape  bamboo skewers on the back, or you can glue them to presentation board  and…

    Kitten 1st birthday Party

    Mia loves our cats and any other cat,  she acts like a cat lol, she loves milk, cardboard boxes, treats, even cat toys! She also love pit balls. So her party was all about all her favorite things: cats and colorful pit balls.   We didn’t have lots of guests for her party so we had a small cake (the bottom of the cake was fake) but I really wanted a two layer cake, in fact thank God I made that fake layer because about 2 hours before the party the backdrop smashed the cake and broke my cake stand, the fake layer survived just some minor scratches, and yes…

    Roadtrip from Houston to Denver

    Our very first family road trip was from Houston to Denver. It was AMAZING!

We leave Houston around 4pm, and 8 1/2 hours later we arrive to our Hotel in Amarillo almost at midnight. Day 2 We leave the hotel about 8:30 am, we went through the 6th street “historic district” and  made a quick stop at Cadillac ranch. Our next stop was Great Sand Dunes, it was not…

    DIY Furry wooden letters

    I was looking forward to paint Mia’s nursery but honestly I ran out of time and energy. So I designed a quick, easy and super cheap alternative.I printed 2 different sizes of star shapes, cut them, trace them with pencil in presentation board, and then I cut them with an exacto knife. I used only one presentation board ($1) I bought the wooden letters at target for about $3 or $4  each one.  And bought 3 different textures at Michael’s  for about, sherpa was $7.00 but I used the 40% off coupon, the yarn was $3.49 and the sheet of felt $0.50 ( I don’t know why I didn’t think…

    Furry, calming and cozy nursery

    To decorate Mia’s room, I spent  endless number of hours at Pinterest, trying to discover a theme for the room that I would loved, it was difficult because I wanted something cute but not super feminine (all pink with flowers, etc). After  thousand  hours :p in Pinterest, I made a collage with ideas and things that I liked. I want the nursery to be a cozy and calming space using neutral colors with a touch of pastels like pink and green mint. I also wanted to integrate “furry” animals like bears, sheep, cats, llamas and rabbits.   1. Sheepskin rug   2. Dream catcher mobile 3. Huge teddy bear 4.We…
