To Botox or Not to Botox?…That is the Question – I Am Asking Myself Currently

IMG_7035

Overall, I would say I am aging well. Yet, even saying the words “aging well” makes me feel like I am getting older, and well, I guess I am. I don’t feel my age, but I think I may be starting to look closer to my age than before. Some of you may know my age. For those of you that don’t, how old do you think I am? People usually say they think I am in my mid-thirties, which is Continue reading

Visiting Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition at the Fleet

IMG_7032

Have you ever wondered about myths? I have. I have also heard of the television series Mythbusters. The television show puts to the test myths and urban legends, some are common things, others may be a bit quacky. The series puts lots of myths to the test and determines if they are true or not. I always like to learn facts, and about science, and how things work and why. The new Mythbusters: An Explosive Exhibition at the Fleet Science Center (Fleet) is just about that! It is based on Continue reading

Being a stay-at-home mom and continuing to work part-time from home is challenging. Being a stay-at-home mom is a full-time job in itself. I have great respect for moms!

Coco: The Importance of Traditions & Culture

unnamed

At the Coco movie screening. 

Growing up in a Mexican household (while living in California), I learned about Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead, the holiday celebrated in Mexico to honor the dead) at an early age. It was important to my parents that my siblings and I learn about the Mexican culture and traditions. They not only worked hard to teach us proper Spanish, but also to instill in us a sense of pride and appreciation for our Mexican culture and heritage. I am very appreciative to my parents for giving me this wonderful gift! I grew up in the United States, but I am Mexican-American, bicultural and bilingual! I feel I have the best of both worlds!

I want to be able to pass on this priceless gift to my daughter, Alessandra. So, when I got invited to the preview screening of Disney Pixar’s new animated movie Coco, I got excited! To add to the excitement and fun, I Continue reading
