Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms who celebrate today. Truth is that being from Panama, I mainly celebrate this especial day on December 8th. But because I have been living here over 10 years, I have also embraced celebrating in May. I suppose I am lucky to be able to celebrate twice a year. 🙂
This is my 9th Mother’s Day and it’s just as special as the first. Every year on this date, I feel blessed to have been able to embark on the great adventure that motherhood has been for me. I feel so honored to be able to raise my two girls. While, it’s not always easy, it’s my favorite thing to do. I’m not the best mom in the world but to them I am and it fills my heart with joy.
Dressing the family for the holidays can be a challenge. But don’t panic, today my little one is taking over the blog to share styles that little girls can wear through winter! They are holiday styles from two of her favorite stores; Crazy 8 and Gymboree! She loves keeping it casual but will occasionally dresses up. These versatile styles can be worn over and over again!
So we love shopping at these stores, because their versatile styles allow her to show her personality through what she wears. The first look she put together without much effort; a jumpsuit which is on trend and slides which are her go to because she can quickly slide them on and go. She’s not big on accessories but she picked this necklace and has been wearing it quite a bit.
The second look is more casual, she loves her jeans! And I did help her a bit on this one. While she picked the crop sweater and jeans, I suggested she’s add some sparkle with the bronze booties. She accessorized this look with a festive bow. If you have little ones, you should check out both stores, they often have sales that make it easy to get their fun styles at a discount. 😉

When you have to keep the laundry of four people and a dog smelling fresh, you focus on scent. As the laundry coordinator in my home making sure our laundry smells fresh is a big deal. To add an extra boost of scent to our favorite blankets, t-shirts, tutus, and dresses, I have the help of a new trio. The NEW Gain Flings™ Laundry Detergent Pacs in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent, NEW Gain fireworks!™ in-wash scent booster in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent and Gain Dryer Sheets in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent. This amazing new scent is exclusive to Dollar General and worth trying out.
Two weekends ago we planned an impromptu trip west. We ended up in San Antonio and had a blast! We did some of the usual tourist attractions and then some new things as well. I love visiting San Antonio because even though it’s a small city, it’s a lot of fun. If you’re ever planning to drive through Texas, I recommend that you stop by San Antonio and maybe check out some of my recommendations. 😉
Our first stop after checking in to our hotel was the San Antonio River Walk. We walked around a little bit so the girls could get the river walk experience. Even though we had planned to do a boat tour, we didn’t get to this time. This is another way to get around the Riverwalk if you’re not up for a walk.
There is nothing quite like a family adventure. Each adventure is the chance to build memories together, to see each other laugh and smile and share in the moments that will live long in each of your memories. Family adventures are those unique experiences that manage to bring you closer together no matter how far they take you away from home. They are the mementos that will grace your home’s walls forever, spark conversations and put a grin on your face during tough times.
Oh, yeah, there really is nothing quite like a family adventure, which is why we’ve pulled together a list of adventures that you and your family should try and plan because they will build memories like no other.
For most people, a dog is another member of the family, and so the thought of leaving them behind while you go on vacation can be a difficult one to swallow. Luckily, these days, there are a lot more places that cater to dog parents, so it’s easier than ever to travel with your pooch, especially if you’re traveling in The U.S. If you’re a first-time pet traveller, here is some advice to help you out.
