Weekend Fun & Links

Hope you had a nice week! Any highlights? This week I got to visit my sis and nephews mid-week, which was a treat! My nephew is on fall break from school, so their schedules are a bit more relaxed this week. They are adorable! Kids grow so fast, it seems each time I see them they are a few inches taller. One of them has a loose tooth. I am waiting for the “smile with a window” pic when it falls out 🙂

This weekend, I am looking forward to visiting my sis-in-law & nieces/nephew. We plan to go for a walk by the lake and catch up.  I will also be volunteering for Mana de San Diego (a non-profit),  at their exhibitor table at Westfield Plaza Bonita’s Mexican Fiesta event. It should be a great event, with mariachi, entertainment, prizes, & food! The Marketing Director, Javier Tirado, at Westfield Plaza Bonita does a wonderful job organizing  events. He’s a pro, and his events are always fun and successful!

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll post pics from my weekend on Facebook & Instagram, if you’d like to see them there.

Here are some links from the web: fun, interesting, beauty, health, tips, and more! If you have links you suggest I include next week – send them in the comments or Facebook, include #weekendlinks.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
