Weekend Recap

February 18, 2013


Happy President’s Day! I hope you are having a good weekend! I have “possible bronchitis” so I rested all of Saturday. Today, we ventured out to a restaurant and stopped at the mall, where I spotted a lost little girl (who happened to run VERY fast). All ended well as we called security and her mom obviously did too. Phew! I kept thinking…I. Would. Go. NUTS!!! Have you ever lost a child in a public space for a few minutes??

Thanks to the “possible bronchitis”, here is what I found while lounging on the couch. Enjoy and please let me know what you think!

“Immigrants benefit the overall economy.”

Apparently, money can buy you happiness

Two new picture book reviews by The WSJ.

I wish I was still in my old NYC neighborhood to work out here. Psst! The founder is Venezolana!

Do you find these T-shirts offensive?

Another FANTASTIC Latina fashion blogger. Thanks to My Friend Betty Says reader, Cindy, for sharing!!

Why we should save our kids’ art work.

If I knew about this pregnancy, I forgot all about it! I’m glad I know again. She was the subject of one of my most commented posts!

Have a great week everyone!

    My Internet is slow so I only got to see 4 out of your 8 links. I have saved tons of my kids art work, I have not done much with it other than put their name and month/date on the back so I know who it belongs to. I know one day they will each want to their art work back even if just to for memories. The fashion blogger, I knew I liked those Valentino shoes when I saw them and now that I see how she wore them I like them even more! Cupcake, donut t-shirts are as crazy as their creator, I would never wear them. Jessica Simpsons first pregnancy reminded me not to over indulge with this pregnancy. I have been a bad girl by eating things I normally wouldn’t, but 35 weeks and 33 pounds is not too bad right? Well getting rid of them will be a different story :-/ thanks for sharing! Xo

    Oh man it is CRAZY how often I’ve seen little kids lost and have had to notify the staff or security. I’m sure it gets nuts at the mall but wow, I would go bonkers if I couldn’t find my kiddo. Then again, a lot of these kids are older and probably wander a lot more, but yeah, I hope that never happens to me!

      Nina, I was going crazy as if the girl was mine!!! My heart was beating so fast, I was running after her (in wedges) so she wouldn’t get lost again and I was holding HOT coffee. It is comical now, but let me tell you…I wanted to cry. πŸ™
