Date Night

Last night we had a last minute date night. I have been wanting to watch The Greatest Showman since it came out, but for one reason or another I never got to see it. So finally last night we saw it. It was so funny and both of us walked out laughing and happy. This was definitely the right choice for our date.Our date was planned an hour before the movie started. We both showered and hurried up after a long day of work and it honestly was perfect. It was just us, the movie theater wasn't too packed and we decided to have a late dinner.

Date night doesn't have to be something expensive it can be as simple as staying home, watching a movie, eating some popcorn. Or it can be glamorous and fun. The point of date night is to share a good experience with your partner and I feel like we did just that. What's your idea of a good date night? Staying in or going all out? If you have some date night ideas you want to recommend please leave a comment down below.

Also, has anyone else experienced the run around? When you and your partner can't decide where to eat, so you end up driving around trying to decide where? That's usually what a night out for us is like, but we also enjoy that because its a part of who we are as a pair. If you are still reading, thank you and I will talk to you all next Wednesday.

Snow In February and Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day we decided we would just have a chill stay at home date. With all the chocolates, hearts and love also comes a crowd. We walked into any store on February 13th and 14th and I kid you not, it was packed. Everyone wanted to get stuffed animals, food, whatever they could get their hands on. It was madness.

Therefore we decided it was easier to just be ourselves, have a good time at home with homemade pizza, a movie, some wine and our family. After all Valentine's Day is not just about your partner, but also about the relationships we cherish.

 It turns out that our Valentine's Day unexpectedly flowed into our weekend. Life just happened and we woke up to snow over the weekend. It was lovely and beautiful and COLD. So we did the first thing that popped into our millennial heads and decided to go out to take some pictures. It was so much fun, our balloon flew away, our hands were freezing and life was good. We ended our night with some more family time and some chocolate de abulita. It was perfect.

NEW VIDEO: Stealing Mario's Food

Looking back at 2017

As a child of habit I cannot help but to look back at the past. It seems like I am always walking in two separate directions. My body moves forward and my mind can't help but hold back a little and remember who I was and the events of the past year. I laugh a little when someone mentions "new year, new me" because I don't believe people change in a day, although as a I look back I am reminded of some good times and a whole lot of moments of learning.

I have had so many moments of learning and growing, but lets be real, I have had some set backs too. I've had many fun and exciting adventures with people I really care about. I've had moments of feeling amazing and on top of the world, moments where my health has been at its best and my self confidence stretched. But I have also been thinking a lot about my family and the role that I play. 

I am constantly remembering my grandmother, her words, her mannerisms. The older I am the more I value my family and the traditions they have passed down to me. I feel like over the past year I have lost a little bit of my language and who I am as Latina. I have been so involved with my work that I have forgotten to keep certain things alive. My grandmother is a constant reminder of who I am and who I want to become. 

As much as I have appreciated the past year and all of my blessings. I truly believe that I cannot forget who I am and where I come from. Its so easy to get sucked into work, or daily routine or negativity. In order to be truly confident I have to be who I am and I have to own my thoughts, actions and my opinions. That is my goal not just for the next year, but for my life. If you you have any goals or things you are working on comment down below or let me know through social media.
