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

It's the simple things in life...

It's the first time I'm not happy that it's Friday :( 
I've been spoiled with Miguelito time this entire week and I will definitely miss him next week!
We made sure to have lots of fun, eat everything and anything full of carbs & sugar, and we made sure to walk around Central Park every single day. Plus, we had perfect weather the entire week except for today which was full of lots of rain, but that didn't stop us. We started the morning off by watching "The Secret World Of Arrietty", afterwards some delicious Brunch, and to top it off a thrifting shopping spree :) 
It was a most wonderful week!

(。◕‿◕。) Watching Miguelito rooting for his favorite basketball team, the cutest thing is watching him get mad when the Knicks miss a shot.

(。◕‿◕。) Munching on a humungous slice of NYC pizza, and yes! I did finish the entire slice all by myself.

(。◕‿◕。) Spending time with my boys. It always makes my day when I get to spend an entire day with my boys, they are my life and I love them both so much.

(。◕‿◕。) Spying on the Raccoons that live in Central Park. It was so much fun to find them looking for food under a bridge. Thanks to Miguelito and his fascination with them we got to stay there about 40 mins, watching them dig for food and take dips in the little pond.

(。◕‿◕。) Miguelito loves his custard! Especially if it's from the Shake Shack, and this is what he ate almost every night this week.

(。◕‿◕。) One of Miguelitos thrifting treasures. He is addicted to Star Wars and for him to find this (Star Wars Clone Wars vehicle V- Wing Fighter Pilot Tru) today was just the best thing that could have happened to him. Even though it's missing the pilot and a wing it is believed to be his best toy ever!

(。◕‿◕。) One of the many breathtaking views that you can find in Central Park. I never get tired of saying "I Love You Central Park".

Now I'm off to finish watching Grease 2 - I want a C-O-O-L R-I-D-E-R.....
Have a great Weekend my sweet friends!

Love Thyself!


It's always so easy to judge one self, and find imperfections. Yet if they ask me what it is that I like about myself  I either shrug my shoulders or just say I don't know. 
I always feel so self conscious. No, I am not happy with my body and I have serious issues with myself.
I always feel fat and lack lots of self confidence.

But now instead of being so hard on myself I thought I'd focus on something I love about me :D
 
I LOVE MY SMILE :D

My smile is a reflection of my happiness and it reminds me that I am blessed with a wonderful family and friends. I am always smiling because I am a happy person and I Love my life!

What's one thing that you love about yourself?

Thinking about... some very happy news that I received yesterday! I am SO excited and overwhelmed with joy!!. 

Anticipating... March :D I get to hug two beautiful girls from blog world! Sweet Faiza & Erin :D I am so excited!

Working on... my valentine day cards. Such a procrastinator!

Listening to... Adele - Set Fire To The Rain. I can't get enough of this amazing lady and her incredible voice and songs.

Eating... Marshmallows, I have a serious marshmallow addiction going on right now. I can't stop eating them.

Your always in my heart...

 I can't believe that it's been a year that you went away mi querido abuelito. My heart still  hurts so much, I hate the fact that I can't see you, hear your voice, or touch your hand. I miss you everyday and there are times that I lay awake crying, porque te extrano mucho! I hope for the day that I see you again even if it's in my dreams. Today while I cleaned the living room your picture fell to the ground. I wonder, was it you? Were you letting me know that your always by my side? And that even though I can't see you, your always by my nearby. I love you mi querido abuelito and I miss you every single day!
 Good-bye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart's the memory and there you'll always be.

Love,
Kary xoxo
