Let's Teach Our Girls to Be Confident in Their Beauty

When I first began blogging, 5 years ago, I had no idea where this road would take me. This post is sponsored and part of my journey, however all opinions are my own. Back then my girls were just little babies and in the years since I started this journey they've grown into little ladies. Of course, they're not the only ones who have changed, I've changed too and so has my outlook on the world. Now I begin many of my posts by saying, "As a Mom to two little girls..." and that's because I've realized that my responsibility as Mom is changing and growing with them each day.

Spice up the Holidays with this Easy Tamales Recipe

Nothing brings together family and friends more than food right? In my family, tamales are a definite must when it comes to feeding a large family like ours, especially during the holidays. Today I'm sharing a twist on one of my grandma's classic tamales recipes. Don't tell her, but it's kind of a short cut. She always disapproves when I tweak her recipes and will never admit how much she likes it, even if she has seconds. Don't you just love abuelas? Okay, back to these delicious tamales. #VivaLaMorena

Balance Your Plate with Stouffer's Lasagna and Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

Busy moms with busy families know how hard it is to come up with a healthy dinner every single night. I'd like to say I am one of those awesome moms that meal plan and prep freezer meals for a month in advance and just toss them in the crock pot every day of the week. But, that's not me. Not at all, in fact you can pretty much guarantee that I will be making a last minute run to the market for some random but necessary ingredient. However, I am the Mom that always makes sure my girls have a balanced dinner, 5 nights a week, we have a vegetable on our plate. #BalanceYourPlate

Giveaway: Two New Books, Disney's Elena and the Secret of Avalor

In this home, reading is not only one of our favorite things to do, it is one of the most important things that we do. When I was a kid I loved to read and from the moment my girls first learned to read, I could not wait for them to fall in love with reading the way I did. From my experience, the best way to get your kids to fall in love with reading is by giving them books to read that they are interested in. So, for now that's one of my goals- find books that my girls will love to read.

Halloween Hair and Johnson's No More Tangles

Halloween costume decisions are kind of a big deal around here. Since my littlest has been obsessed with Unicorns all year long, we could not think of a more appropriate costume for her. I was planning on DIY'ing the whole costume, but we happen to stumble upon a Unicorn costume while out shopping one day. The costume came with a horn on a headband but, I just knew I had to make my own tweaks. With the head of hair on this little girl, I knew we would have enough to make our very own Unicorn horn.
