It's The Simple Things In Life...

Being with my two babies is hands down the best thing ever! I really am one blessed momma :)

Finding out that I get to go to Fitness Magazines Meet & Tweet for the third year  in a row.

I've always been a big fan of the Chicken Soup For The Soul books and that's why when I received an invite to be a part of their Souper Blogger program I smiled ear to ear. As part of their program I will receive books and product to review. These two new book stat were just released this month were sent for me to read and review, oh and to giveaway. So keep an eye out for that giveaway.

Being an Auntie!! I swear its the best feeling in the world. I love my niece so much.

Trying out the Shake Shacks limited edition concrete which consisted of pieces of donuts from Donut Plant - yummy!

What made you smile this week?

Happy Friday, Loves

Love,
Kary xoxo

Motivational Mondays


I couldn't have said it better!

Mistakes are always good, you can only learn from them.
Never be afraid to try something new, you will only regret not trying.
He or she who tells you that mistakes are bad is wrong and is only holding you back, so go ahead and go try something new. Don't be afraid, it doesn't matter what it is.
Whether it's trying something new to eat, a new fitness routine or learning something new.
Go, make mistakes!
I dare you to!!

Believe in yourself, always 

Love,
Kary xoxo

These shoes were made for running!! My babies have carried me through so many miles of running & my first half marathon! I'm SO sad to retire them next week. They were my 1st pair of Mizunos and they will be missed Now it's time to pick my new running shoes!

Jellybean - 7 Months




Baby girl turned 7 months today.
 She is a picky eater who refuses to eat anything unless its her breast milk. She already threw up 3 times, when tasting food. Everything makes her gag, I'm not that surprised because my pregnant was the worst when it came to eating. Everything  I ate made me gag and my mom told me it was a sign that Valentina would be a bad eater, plus I was also the worst eater as a baby. I also gagged with everything, I lived on lipton soup and apple juice. 
Valentina can sit down like a big girl, and loves to play games with her big brother. I can see by the sparkle in her eyes that she is going to be a mischievous one. She can say papa & mama, loves to talk & laugh. 
She also loves dancing and jumping up and down. Her favorite thing to do is watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and play with her toys  

Happy 7 months Valentina!
You are our little Princess and we love you so much!

Love,
Mami & your boys xoxo

A few tips on being an active family during the Summer #MovingMoments

Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Huggies and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.


Time goes by way too fast and I can't believe that my son is going to be 11 years old in the next 2 weeks and that baby girl is going to be 7 months already. I remember when Miguel was a baby in diapers and it's been great to see how far Huggies has come, they have always been our go to diapers.
I love that I can rely on them, to help keep my baby girl dry and now that she moves, rolls over and is starting to crawl around the New Huggies Little Movers Diapers are perfect. The new double grip strip is a comfy and comfortable - they are soft velcro strips that are located on the sides of the front diaper panel. They help the diaper so that when baby moves around, it stays in place!
When baby moves, diaper stays in place so no mess. Rolling around has never been so much fun.
We love showing baby girl how much fun movement can be. Dancing in the living room, jumping up and down and playing in the park. nowadays with so much technology taking over it's important to take a break and show your kids how important movement is. 
It's especially important during Summer days when it's so hot outside and all you want to do is stay inside with the air conditioner on high :)


Here I will share a few tips that I hope will help you:

1) If it's a super hot day, wait until it's late in the afternoon. Summer afternoons always tend to be cooler.

2) Make it a fun, family day.  Run around the sprinklers, have a family picnic.

3) Go to the swings and swing away. Swinging is good leg exercise.

4) Walk it off. Take the kids for a nice Summer treat, yes sweets are allowed. Everything in moderation is ok. Buy a sundae and share it, then go walk it off and watch the Sunset.

5) Most importantly always remember to have fun. Always carry a ball, some bubbles, a bathing suit, towel and be ready for Sumer Day memories!


Huggies is helping make a difference and has recently partnered up with leading fitness movement expert, Nikki Glor and MyGym. They are showing and helping encourage parents to embrace those "Moving Movements".
