Seize the day because life is what you make it...

Life is Like Chocolate Covered Strawberries : )

How time goes by I can't believe that in less than 12 days my baby is going to be 7yrs old, it seems like yesterday he was in my belly and we were all so crazy for him to be born. And the best part is that Miguelitos birthday is on September 5th and my mami's Birthday is on September 10th so he was like her early birthday present -lol-.... Now I have a week to plan two birthday parties or one if we combine both birthdays : ) Hmmmmm.what to do......

Going ahead to something else I have been craving chocolate covered strawberries for so long but I was really unwilling to pay more than $3.00 bucks a piece for one at Godiva, and than yesterday I thought - hey I know how to make myself some yummy desserts- so off we went to Target. I bought some strawberries and chocolate to melt. Today after a very long day I got to baking.

They came out pretty good and boy were they Yummy!!!!!!

Oh! How I miss my Mexico ; (

Wow... I can't believe I am back home and that just a week ago we were in Mexico. I've had my computer on since this morning and I keep going back and fourth to this page having no idea how or where to start. I am so full of emotion, first of all I am so ecstatic to be back home with my hubby I missed him so much ; ) Secondly leaving Mexico this time around was the hardest thing I've had to do in a very long time. It had been 9 long years since I'd been to Mexico and I really hope it doesn't take that long next time.It was very exciting to see new the additions to our family and to be able to see my grandparents - my grandfather just turned 95yrs old : ) Miguelito got to see my beloved Mexico and got to feel what it is to fall in love with our heritage and appreciate everything we have. Our trip was full of family reunions, sightseeing, and lots of eating.
We got back on Wednesday and I have been somewhat withdrawn, I really miss waking up and going down the stairs to see my grandmother or cousins just playing around with Miguelito, getting to stand on the balcony and take in the fresh air, where as here my baby has no one to play with and we are in our little apartment : ( It feels lonely and quiet!!! I keep thinking what I would be doing back in Mexico and checking the time and comparing the time difference (here in New York we are one hour ahead) and weather. One bad thing about me is that I tend to hold on to memories, you could say I sometimes live in the past -not good.I hope that by writing in my blog I will relax and be able to bid goodbye Happily to my time spent in Mexico.
My plan - to post how each day in Mexico was spent, beginning with the day we arrived to the day we left. Hopefully by the end I will be more relaxed : )

I will finish this post on a happy note. Before I left to Mexico I received a Belated- Birthday package from my querida amiga Pria over at - My Reflections (pictures below).. Thank you Pria I loved the purse - new addition to my collection-lol.. and like I mentioned before the waterproof mascara really came in handy with all the crying that went on.
Above: Birthday card, Hershey chocolate with almonds : ), Purse, and waterproof mascara.

Now when we got back and I went to pick up our mail at the post office we had another package waiting for us - Welcoming us Back Home - from sweet Micaela.

I really tried to take a picture of the contents of Micaelas package but Miguelito literally ripped it out of my hands, and boy was he happy, in the package Micaela included some neon Twistable crayons ( you really won his heart, Miguelito is a real lover of crafts he LOVES to color and do art all the time) and some sweets for him again won him over with the Push-Pop his all time favorite candy : ) but the most touching item included in the package was the doily- crocheted by your mami : ) Thank you so much dear Micaela and a million thanks to your mami for thinking of us your blog friends : ) Lots of love to you and all your familia : )

Now I am off to prepare some special packages that will be sent to some special friends of mines ; )

P.S. I am really excited to post about our time in Mexico I will be able to relive my time spent over there, no spoilers but we did get to climb our "own mount Everest". : )

Hope everyone has a great weekend : )

Mexico City = )

Tonight we will be in Mexico City after 9 long years. Getting ready to leave my house to go to the airport. And I'm full of emotions, first of all I'm sad - my other half is staying behind, I'm nervous,excited, and I have the horrible nagging feeling that I'm forgetting something (I really hope I don't forget anything essential)......... But I'm sure that once I'm in Mexico I will be more relaxed and able to enjoy myself, first I must survive these horrible steps....
It will be great to reunite with family and friends. And I can't wait to get back and share the pictures and adventures. Most important I pray for a safe trip and that everything is ok........

Hasta Luego........... Never say Goodbye.....It's see you later..... : )

Up In The Air

Yesterday was a very sad day ; ( We dropped my parents and brother off at the airport, even though we get to see them next Saturday when my sister, Miguelito, and me go to Mexico it was still heartbreaking. We are so used to have them nearby that we get to see them everyday. The night before they left I kept feeling sad and on our way to the airport I had a huge lump in my throat, meanwhile unaware of how the farewell would impact my Miguelito. My dad believes in being super early for everything -you never know-,thanks to that we were at the airport 5 hours early so we got to hang out with them for a while before leaving them at the gate. The time passed and so did our time with them, before we knew it the time to say goodbye had arrived. The biggest lump ever got stuck in my throat and as my dad and me hugged goodbye I lost it, I started crying and heard a far away wimping as I looked over my shoulder I saw Miguelito crying and wimping because he didn't want his grandma and grandpa to leave, this started a whole crying fest from my mom and him. Deep breath, deep breath Humberto told me, and I went to hold my baby and comfort him. It's incredible how hard goodbyes can be, no matter how long they might be for. It was a rough night for Miguelito crying himself to sleep, now all he has to do is count down the days until he gets to be on a plane which will take him to Mexico to reunite with his grandma and grandpa. It will be a many first for my baby, first time in a plane and first time in Mexico. Until than all he can do is look up at the sky and see the planes and imagine himself with his Abuelitos ; )And as far as goodbyes go the hardest one is coming up this Saturday when we have to say bye to Humberto, if this goodbye was hard just imagine how awful this coming one will be ; (
