I have spent the better part of my twins’ first 3 years of life setting boundaries for them.  “We eat at the table….We use please and thank you…No, you can’t cut your brother’s hair!”…the list is never-ending.  And now, ...
With the fall weather picking up and Halloween around the corner, I decided to put together a themed dinner one night to welcome the new season. Hocus Pocus is our favorite Halloween movie! So, I opened the refrigerator in...
Fall is my absolute favorite time of year for many reasons: sweater weather, bonfires, football, and Latinx Heritage Month. Latinx Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15th through October 15th. Is one month enough? No, but that is an...

I am first going to start this post with some in yo face knowledge. Quarantining makes you do some crazy stuff. I'm not talking about demoing your bathroom or picking up a hobby, I am talking full-fledged, this momma...
