“Let this Sunday be
A day to reflect, a day of respect, for all you have been blessed.
Let your joy be expressed”
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far! Remember life is short, so appreciate and cherish your loved ones during this holiday weekend and always =)
My parents and sister came to spend the holiday with me and my husband!
We did the escape room challenge and our theme was Alien Conspiracy. So we had to try and save all the documentation that proved aliens exist and we had to stop a bomb from going off! We had 60 minutes to complete the task and we were getting so nervous each task we had to do was so difficult to solve plus we were approaching the last few minutes!
We weren’t sure if we were going to finish! But we had great teamwork and was able to finish the challenge with 3 minutes left! Yay! They told us that this was their toughest escape room and had a 30% success rate so we were so happy that we finished it!
My mom is from NYC so we met up with her side of the family at a nice restaurant in Manhattan called Caffe Napoli. We had Bruschetta Salad for appetizers and boy was that delicious! For my entree I ordered Stuffed Chicken Marsala with Gnocchi and my husband ordered Filet Mignon w/ Beef Ravioli. Wow everything was so tasty!
My mother in law hosted Christmas Eve and I made the traditional Puerto Rican dish called Pernil which is slow roasted pork shoulder. It was a success because everyone loved it and there was none left! Haha
For Christmas we stayed in and I cooked a nice big breakfast for us all! We opened all of our gifts and everyone pretty much got what they wanted! One of my favorite gifts is my new iPhone 8 Plus! My husband surprised me and I couldn’t be more happier because I was so overdue for a new phone!
This was such a great Christmas and I’m so glad I was able to spend it with my family!
What did you all do for the holidays?? Comment below, I’d love to hear what you did!
Sorry for the late post!
I decided to throw a small get together at my place for Cinco De Mayo!
I made a pitcher of Margarita, loaded nachos, quesadillas, churros with cinnamon whipped cream dipping sauce, and fresh guacamole!
We also played a game called Mexican train dominoes. It’s sort of like playing regular Dominoes but a lot easier lol! Here are some pictures of the food!
What did you do for Cinco De Mayo?! Comment below!
