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

I'll be there for you...

I'm a natural born night owl and I can't help falling asleep late. These past few months it's gotten worse and I don't fall asleep until 4am and yes I still get up early. I'm always up and around by 7 or 8 - say what? Yep, I need some help and the only thing keeping me sane during these late nights is being able to watch re-runs of Friends. I seriously love this show and never get tired. The other night I got to watch the episode where Rachel tells Monica and Phoebe that she's pregnant and I was crying like a baby :) This has got to be one of my favorite episodes but trust me when I say that they are all my favorite!

Are you a Friends fan?
What's your favorite episode?

A day with my boys

I always feel blessed after spending a day with my boys, especially since Humbe works 6 days a week and is off on Mondays. Munchkin is usually at school and when he comes out its Taekwondo, homework, dinner and sleep. So we really can't enjoy our time together, that's why Summer days are the best. Especially Summer Mondays, they are the best because we get to fully enjoy our day together.

We love our Chipotle
Chocolate fro-yo with almonds, mixed nuts, raspberries, wafers and granola
Today was no exception. We woke up early to catch an early showing of Wolverine, at our favorite movie theater with the reclining red seats. It is a must see movie, I absolutely loved it and fell more on love with Logan. After the movie we went thrifting, for lunch we picked Chipotle - our favorite place to eat at. And then walked some more, after walking for a while we decided to get some dessert before heading home, and what's better than some fro-yo from Pinkberry to end a perfect day with my boys.
I truly am blessed!

Dress like a girl!

Yes, I can also dress like a girl. That is when I choose to trade in my spandex, running shoes and running tees. I'm addicted to Ig shops and I just had to show off this pretty new dress that I also got at an awesome price :) I promise to post a better pic soon, munchkin was just so anxious to go back to playing Club Penguin that he snapped this picture as fast as he could.

Know any good IG shops?

#HuggiesLatino Huggies the way to go!

Disclosure: This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Huggies. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Huggies, the way to go! Do you guys remember when I wrote this post here. It was a fun playdate where I got to meet other Latina mom bloggers, Zuleyka Rivera the new spokesperson for Huggies,  learn more about their new line Snug and Dry, and it was also the launch of the monthly webisodes featuring Zuleyka and her son Sebastian. We got a sneak peak of the first two.

And now I'm so excited to announce that I am a Huggies Brand Ambassador - Yay!!
For the upcoming few months I will be talking about Huggies products, in hopes of helping you familiarize yourself with them. Unless your already a momma, then you know what Huggies is all about. This is also a great opportunity for mommies to be to get familiar with the some of Huggies new products.

I grew up rocking the Huggies and so did my son. They really are the way to go. I never had any problem with leakage, or diaper rashes. What I love most is that they have a variety for all kinds of babies. From unscented to scented and from ordinary diapers to natural ones.
In the meantime you can check out their website to learn more about Huggies. You can also check out the Huggies Latino Facebook Page where you can check out the monthly webisodes featuring Zuleyka Rivera - former Miss Universe,  where she shares her parenting tips and special moments.

Here's the 1st webisode featuring Zuleyka and her little cutie:
After watching the webisodes you can tweet with other fellow mommies to chat about them. Just use the hashtag #HuggiesLatino to join in the fun!

For my english speaking mommies, don't be afraid to check out the Huggies website. You can pick either English or Spanish before going in :) And the twitter chat are also english friendly!

I look forward to sharing some of my special moments!

#Saucony - I'm not very happy with you!

My running buddy
It's been a while since I've been running in Central Park and this past Saturday seemed like the perfect day. Plus, my daddy asked me to go for a run with him :)
How could I say no?!?
I was up at 6:30 am, have to beat that summer heat. We were at the park by 7am.
The plan was to just run an easy 3 to 4 miles, because it has been a while that I've gone for a run.

 So I figured it would be a good time to give the Saucony Kinvara 4 a try.
I received them at the FitBlogNYC event I went to back in May. 
It was 5 minutes that I'd walked out of my house and we were walking towards the park and I could feel the back of the shoe a little bit rough, but I figured it would go away.
Once we were 10 minutes into our run I felt the burning in the back of my ankle, we stopped so I could loosen up the shoelaces and see if it was that. But I could feel the sneaker very rough and the way it rubbed on my sock. By mile 1 I could feel the pain and knew that my ankle was already peeled, oh the pain. I wanted to stop, I even kept looking to see if I saw an ambulance just so I could ask for bandaids, no luck. We were far from the house and to finish we still had about 3 more miles to go. The harder I tried to run the more pain I felt, it felt like something was drilling the back of my ankles. I dared not look, and there were times when I felt my ankles falling asleep. When we finished our run, I told my dad to keep walking fast because I was so scared of my feet cooling down and really feeling the pain.
At this point my eyes darted to the back of my feet!
Oh, yeah! That's what the Kinvaras 4 did to the back of my feet.
My dad said "Yikes, your bleeding! Ouch"
Double ouch, I limped home and the scariest part was peeling of those socks :(
Oh, and let me not forget taking a shower. That water running down my legs was a pain and I did let out some screams.
Saucony should really think about lowering the back side of the shoes. I've never, ever had any problems breaking in any other running sneakers. You better believe that I won't be running with these anytime soon and that when I do use them again for walking, lots of bandaids will be used!
Let me just say that I did feel like a total bad ass for pushing though an hour of excruciating pain!

Have you ever had any experience with Saucony sneakers?
Did you ever have nay trouble breaking in new running sneakers?

Summer Days..

I get to spend my Summer days with the love of my life, my munchkin!
I am so blessed to be his mommy and to have him as my son.

We are already 2 weeks into summer vacation and we've had a blast. Looking forward to the weeks left.
Which might include a trip to Mexico - yay!

Hope your Summer days are going great.
Who's your Summer vacation buddy?

We all scream for Ice Cream!

White Pistachio
This hot, sticky weather calls for some yummy Ice Cream from Emack and Bolio's
They are the cutest Ice Cream shop full of yummy flavors. Flavors range from Peanut Butter Oreo, Almond Coconut and other yummy flavors but my personal favorite is the White Pistachio.
Today was the perfect day for a quick walk to the Ice Cream shop, it was so hot that it started melting the moment I was out of the shop.

What's your favorite Ice Cream flavor?

Kary xoxo

Get after it!!

The bags under my eyes, have bags :P
It's been a few rough weeks with SO much going on, especially the hot weather! But I was finally able to go and hit the pavement. Oh how I missed the park and the feeling of my feet hitting the ground.
I made sure to get up earlier than usual to try and beat the hot weather. And even though I left the house with bags under my eyes, it was so worth it.
I'm back on track and there's no stopping me!
 Cheers to Summer Running days!!

Are you a Summer Runner?
 Do you prefer indoors or outdoors?

I'm a Toys"R"Us kid..

Hanging out with my buddy E.T. on the Toys"R"Us Ferris Wheel!
My partners in crime. We love Ferris Wheel!
Munchkin riding away on his motorcycle.
Fruit salad made by my pappa.
Munchkin had a dentist appointment and the office was a few blocks away from Times Square. We couldn't ignore the big toy store. So in we went! I mean they have a huge ferris wheel in the middle of the store. How can you not get on it :)
Our morning consisted of ferris wheel rides, gummy's covered in chocolate, arcade games and of course a quick stop at Forever21. 6 hours of non-stop walking can be very tiring, and I was so grateful to be welcomed home with a fruit salad made by my pappa.
So much yumminess - melon, watermelon, apples, and white nectarines.

Perfect Summer day with a perfect ending!
I am truly blessed with the best family ever.

Cheers to amazing Summer days.

Kary xoxo

Escape with a movie...

The news is that they renovated the movie theater that's a block down from our house!
Red leather seats that recline all the way back until your laying down - say what?!?
So, it's been our sanctuary away from home. We are already movie lovers :)
Our days include a movie in red leather seats and nice air condition!

We've already watched Despicable Me 2, The Lone Ranger and World War Z!

What movies have you watched lately?

#AD Closer to family with - TextPlus

Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of #llblog and TextPlus.

Before I get started let me explain what TextPlus is:
It's a free App that can be downloaded on your Iphone or Android and it offers free texting and very inexpensive domestic and international calls.

I had the opportunity to download and review this app and I couldn't be happier. Before this campaign I had no idea this awesome app existed. I have family in Mexico and Ecuador, and those phone cards can be a pain. With them stealing your money and minutes it becomes expensive. 

For those of you that follow me on Instagram you know I have a serious problem with Ig shops and spending too much money. So when I have to spend too much money on phone cards that don't work I get really mad because it cuts into my Ig shop budget - ha!

Husband got to try the app on my android when talking to his mom in Ecuador. The reception was a little bit wonky at times, but I mean it's on the other side of the world and that also happens with phone cards. My phone call sometimes would get cut off, but it didn't while trying out this app.
I love that you can have a family member or friend download the app and you can text each other free of charge. 
The great thing about TextPlus is that you can get free credit just by watching their videos. That equals free calls!! Major plus in my book!

Do you have TextPlus?
What was your experience?
