Pregnancy Photo Journals

While surfing the web, I've noticed that doing some kind of photo journal during your pregnancy it is becoming more and more popular. When I got pregnant with Diego I decided to make one, I would take every Sunday a picture on the same wall, and then using photoshop I would write how I was feeling that week, weird cravings, feelings etc...I made mine in Spanish because that is what I speak to Diego, and I really think he will (or maybe his wife) treasure this someday.

...after I was done, I printed all the pictures and they are all in Diego's first Year scrapbook...Here are a few close ups...

I loved the final product, but I wish I would have taken a last picture on my week 41, when I had him, maybe with him in my arms to close the whole cycle, but I was not really in the mood for pictures on those first weeks (they were tough..). If I do it again with my next pregnancy, I would like to maybe do something like this:

...I love the idea of wearing during the whole thing the same outfit.. and the doily with the numbers....very cute, plus she is adorable...

...or maybe this, a perfect coffe table book with not only belly cute...

Whaaaaaaat?...This made my day! Let's celebrate!!!!

I'm a mormon

A few months ago, I received a call from the LDS media departament. They wanted to do a story on me....go figure. I said yes, and here it is. So happy I did.

Arroz con leche yum!

...This weekend I cooked "arroz con leche" a typical dessert from Spain (not to be confused with rice pudding... please...this is more rich, more tasty....a lot better!)
...My grandma Isabel taught me how to make it before my mission. It is a family recipe and  the smell of it brings so many making it made super homesick!
..I cooked it a lot during my  mission: for investigators, church parties, other missionaries... so a lot of people asked me for the recipe, so I made copies of the instructions and a picture of my cute grandma . At the end of my mission this dessert was famous all over the place!.. is in Spanish...if you are very interested I might translate it just for you;)

Oh so adicted!

Yes, my if I didn't have enough sites to waste my time on already (I have accounts in facebook, blogger, twitter etc, etc...) now, one more thing is grabbing my attention and my time: Pinterest!'s basically a place where you can save all your favorite pictures, sites and project ideas,  and have all that (including the links) in the same place. At at the same time you can see other people's pages, or boards, so for me, it's a place where I get inspired and get a lot of ideas for future projects (that I won't probably ever make, if I keep wasting time looking for ideas instead of making them!) 
This is my "PROYECTOS" (projects) board...

...And this my "RECETAS DULCES (sweet recipes) board... give it a try and you'll see!'s addictive!

Conference weekend is...awesome.

...and I will tell you why: because I get to spend a great amount of time listening to my church leaders and enjoying a much needed family time. Today, as I type this at 1:26 p.m., I'm still in my pj's while eating that very "planned" soup while is snowing outside and we wait to hear the next session. Perfect. Just perfect. But the best part isn't being at home with my loves while eating comforting food...the best part is listening to our Prophet speak and getting my soul  fed as well. Can this day last forever?..please and thank you.
