For YOU, Life

Back Home this Weekend

March 24, 2014


Hello everyone! We are back from a wonderful two week Spring Break trip from coast-to-coast with a nice stop in the Windy City (bitter cold, actually). Our hearts were warm though– we had a chance to spend a lot of time with our families and a four-day trip to San Francisco for just the Hubby and I. It was all refreshing, fun and very much needed.

We came home with a Spring-cleaning itch and have collected a few bags to donate to charities. The boys’ closets are once again in order, the refrigerator is sparkling clean with lots of food to start fresh (I don’t want to tell you how many tortillas and deep-dish pizza slices we all had–so worth it!), and my makeup bag and bathroom cabinets all cleaned out!

I have your links ready to go too. Please take a look!

I was over at Momagama suggesting 5 things you should do for YOU this spring.

And over at Mommy Maestra with 5 ways to boost your child’s Spanish outside the home.

The picture above are Magna-Tiles. BEST. TOY. EVER. And worth every dime. My boys have had for a long time and Jordi started building (!) with them when he was 18 months old! I’ll Instagram one of his creations soon. Diego, at 7, still enjoys them very much.

What have you been up to? Please share! Have a great week!

    So glad you had a great and much-needed trip, Betty! I’ve been trying to make my way out to SF for a while now and still haven’t solidified any plans. I’d love to just rent a house and take the whole brood up there for a long weekend.

    Tell me what you think of The Fault in Our Stars. I swear I think I’m the only person who doesn’t like it. I couldn’t get through it, but I know it’s rated really well so I think I’m just an odd-ball in this.

    And we have a similar toy to the one you have. Same principles—magnetic edges that kids can use to build. My four-year-old loves it so much, as do the twins. They get a kick out of it sticking to the baby gate and wondering why it doesn’t fall down and stay linked instead.
