Warmer Days

This winter has brought some unseasonably warm days and I have been so incredibly happy about that. The past two Sundays have been warm-ish with 50 degree highs, sunny and not a single cloud in the sky. My Wolford poncho has become a go-to option when these days come. It's a great feeling to be able to hang up your winter coat in the middle of February! And this poncho has kept me warm and incredibly comfortable. Job well done, Wolford

Valentine's Day Red

Life has been nutty lately. Audit season is upon us so work has been (more) stressful and the days just seem to be getting shorter and shorter. I wake up, I shower, I feed and dress Ali, I work, I come home, I play with and feed Ali, I eat dinner, I sleep. That exact routine has been happening for the past two weeks and I desperately needed a little pick me up. Enter this Carven red dress which proved to be the perfect cure for the audit season blues. I don't own a lot of red because I had always felt like the color was a bit flashy. However, it was love at first sight when I laid eyes on this little number. It hugs your curves in all the right places and it will be perfect for both work and play. See below for some more red hot options I'm loving.

San Valentin

This post is sponsored by Target.

Valentine's Day, historically, has not been a very big holiday in our household, but I do love the meaning it holds—a day dedicated exclusively to celebrating love and friendship—and I hope to turn the holiday into a special one now that Ali is with us.

I have very special memories of my younger years, celebrating San Valentin with mi gente in Puerto Rico. One of our favorite things to do was to bake cookies—heart-shaped ones in honor of the holiday. I distinctly remember how much we loved spending the day together, laughing and prancing around the kitchen pretending to be the next Betty Crocker.

This year, I'm looking forward to celebrating the day with Kenny AND with Ali for the very first time. I hope that as she grows up we can create our very own San Valentin memories—maybe even ones that include us in the kitchen, baking sweets and celebrating the holiday I grew up to love.

In anticipation of this year's holiday, I ran out to Target to stock up on everything we would need for an afternoon of baking. I even bought Ali some cute toys so she can play as I bake—unfortunately, a six-month-old won't actually be mixing the batter or decorating cookies. How long exactly until we can have real mommy-and-me baking sessions? Until then, San Valentin cookies will be under my charge, so wish me luck!

P.S. The cookies above were baked using the Joy of Cooking Valentine's Sugar Cookie recipe found
