Last week when I was in LA I had the opportunity to screen the Season 6 Premiere Episode of ABC's "Once Upon A Time," which airs tonight. (I know. Be jealous.)Read More
I have so much to share, I barely know where to start...
I recently received an invitation from Disney to participate in a Whirlwind of Awesomeness for a few days next week. From September 19th through the 21st, I will be having ALL the fun along with 24 other amazing bloggers.Read More
I recently received an invitation to spend a day at the Walt Disney Animation Studios as an introduction to their newest animated feature, "Moana." (I know. Shut up.)
“Moana” is a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. “Moana is the 16-year-old daughter of the chief of Motunui,” says director Ron Clements. “She’s athletic, nimble, compassionate and incredibly smart. She has a never-say-die attitude and a profound connection to the ocean.”Read More
I know you want to know, so here goes: The grandsons are both growing and changing. It's happening so super quickly. Whoever first said, "Time flies" was obviously watching as their children (or grandchildren) grew and changed before their very eyes.Read More
Every now and then, I'll share something that we Cubans are used to doing because it's been so ingrained into our culture and lives - see 8 Rules to Getting Your House Cuban Clean®.
Or I'll casually mention a thing we do that appears superstitious to the untrained observer - see 10 Cuban Superstitions That Helped You Survive. It takes me a beat to realize that I sound like a crazy person. Except when I'm talking to other Cubans. Not only do they nod in recognition, they will share their own stories of the things their abuelas subjected them to.Read More
My first disclaimer is that if you happen to know any Cuban girls, you know for a fact that we don't tend to be lazy in any meaningful way. Second disclaimer - this post is about my own personal gardening choices and no one else's.
Now that we've established that I'm the only Lazy Cuban Girl here, let's continue, shall we?Read More
First let me say: Happy Summer!
Summer and outdoor living just go hand in hand, don't they? It seems that since the weather has warmed up we are spending much more of our time outdoors. Sometimes that just means serving dinner out on the patio, but often it means packing a picnic and enjoying it somewhere... out there.Read More
Is there anything better than a live show? The answer to that, of course, is "no, Marta, nothing better." (Except for maybe a fresh, hot pastelito de guayaba, but that's not important right now.)
Eric and and I went to see the BEST show at the Laguna Playhouse last night. Loosely based on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, All Shook Up (book by Joe DiPietro) is the first show of the 2016- 2017 season at the Playhouse.Read More
