Moments with Maxi

Haven't been taking many photos lately. But here are some I had in my camera that is now officially dead. Lately, (not pictured) we've been cooking together, (Maxi loves helping me make pizza and pancakes), forever making lego robot families, playing cars, hanging out with my sister Josie that is home from college for the summer and going on some mini adventures.

{ so many hearts in my watermelon today }

I'm on day 28 of whole30! That means Sunday I'm having sushi and ice cream! I'm so happy with the results I've gotten from whole30. 1. I haven't weighed myself but I fit perfectly into all the jeans that I had stopped wearing due to gaining weight. 2. I don't suffer from cravings. like. at. all. 3. I can actually say no to doughnuts, chocolate and ice cream. 4. I don't have to constantly snack on something, three meals a day and the occasional handful of nuts or fruit and I'm totally satisfied. 5. I can cook the same thing for the family instead of cooking a meal for myself and one for them. My relationship with food has completely changed for the better and I love how I feel so much that I'm starting whole30 again on July 5th.

Last weekend was so much fun! I had a girls date with my friend Jasmin, then we went to have dinner with her and her family, they invited us to spend the night at their new place and after, we picked up Damian and Maxi who where back from visiting my dad in TJ. Us girls ended up staying home with the bbs and the boys went to our friends house who was actually bummed that we didn't go, they were waiting for us with s'mores for the kids. On Sunday morning we all went to the farmers market and after we had a carne asada at their place. Everything wasn't all fine and dandy we did have a big scare at the end of the day when Maxi jumped from one couch to another and bumped his head on some furniture, he bled a lot and Damian kind of panicked so we all got really scared but luckily my baby is a tough cookie and the cut wasn't deep. Some antibiotics, bandages and icees did the job. Oh boy did we get scared though, I felt so bad for my poor baby. The next day the first thing he said when he woke up was " I jump, I jump mama, I hurt!".

This weekend we have our friends birthday party, zoo date and like I mentioned a sushi and ice cream date.

Hope you guys have a great one! XOXO

LINKS | Doughnut Day

{ Happy National Doughnut Day! These are from my birthday. I'm on day 22 of whole30 so no donuts for me, yay! I'm not even craving them, I don't recognize myself! }

It's Friday! We might go to a little fair that's near by depending how we are feeling later on. It's one that my mom always took me and my sisters when we were younger, I drove by it yesterday and got flashbacks of younger days. Saturday, Damian will be going to Tijuana to help my dad with some stuff around the house and he will be taking Maximiliano. This is like the third time that he will be away from me since he was born (not counting when I was working a few hours in the afternoons). I immediately hit up my friend to make some plans for the day. It's not everyday I get a day all to myself! So far we will be having brunch at Cafe Chloe and checking out some thrift stores. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. XOXO

these weeks favorites (involve lots of food):

Of course I have to share these s'mores donuts. I think I just gained 20 pounds by looking at them.
And some more indulging: deep dish cookie pies! that involve ice cream. 
12 AWESOME recipes. Must make that chopped salad this week.
Want to start doing this short ab routine. P.S. I have no clue what Jennifer Aniston's abs look like.
And because we are celebrating donuts, here's a fun donut game for a kids party!
Lastly: GOALS.

Happy Friday! Maximiliano woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I have no plans. Damian has band practice. The weather is gloomy. So let's see how this Friday plays out for us over here. I'm on day 15 of whole30 and that means I'm half way there! I couldn't feel better and am not missing any food at all, I never go hungry and am happy with all the meals I eat. Only on day 9 did I have a MEAN donut craving and I almost gave in BUT am so happy I didnt! This weekend I'm going to try to fit in a farmer's market outing and hopefully some beach time. I'm almost done with all crafty diy's for Maxi's birthday so I'm happy about that! Also I get to hang out with my good friend Jasmin tomorrow so yay, maybe we will get some thrifting done. Hope you all have a great weekend! XOXO
