Birthday Weekend

August 12, 2013


Happy 35th (!) to me!!! My birthday was yesterday and this birthday doughnut cake is perfect because all I have been eating are Donas Bimbo. Do you know those? Here’s an image:


As you read this, we are arriving home from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! No wonder there were only a few posts and a deleted one last week!  That explains my absence and these yummy treats! They make me very happy! Do you know what else makes me happy? Seeing my boys devour the donas!!! We put a few packages in our suitcase although we are sure we can find them in Jersey. It’s just better this way. 🙂

Overall, the trip was fantastic. Very hot, but fun!  The boys practiced their Spanish and their swimming quite a bit. Dinners were always hard with Baby Jordi but my parents and our friends Luis and Vanessa helped out a lot. I can’t wait to share the pictures with you later this week. In the mean time I’ll have a few #latergrams so please make sure to follow me on Instagram!

Betty, why did you write while on vacay, you ask? I had a lot of free time indoors because Jordi still takes two naps. But, we were giving him a break from the Mexican heat right in the middle of the day, so we thought it was the right time to condense to one nap. One day he slept for over 3 hours and I took advantage to write and read!

I hope you enjoy these links!

There is still time to enter this giveaway and this one!
