this infinity pool goes frighteningly close to the edge! YIKES!!

a delicious Pan de los Muertos recipe for Dia de los Muertos! Celebrated on Nov 2nd, the holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. Due to occurring shortly after Halloween, the Day of the Dead is sometimes thought to be a similar holiday, although the two actually have little in common. The Day of the Dead is a time of celebration, where partying and eating is common. (Wikipedia)

Stockholm may be the most charming city ever! check out this cute apartment.

more new books…


One of the big perks of this blog is that I receive a lot of nice products to review!

This time it is Harper’s turn…
Little Scholastic sent her these 2 colorful books for her growing library.

Alphabet has bold letters to name and bright objects to touch. We practice the ABCs everyday and she enjoys pointing to the letters in the book while I name them!

Peek-a-Zoo is a great big, colorful book that has everything — textures, mirrors, glitter, lift-the-flaps, and more. Peek behind the flaps and inside the holes to find hidden friends. Harper likes the furry animals and the pretty rainbow best!

Yes Yes, we both recommend these books for young readers!
