It's Christmas! It's finally here, the happiest tone of the year! There's lights, music, parties, family, friends, and food, a lot of food. But there is also pressure to be at all the parties, to host some of them, to make or bring food, to give presents, to talk to everyone at the party and … Continue reading How to survive and enjoy the holiday season

There's lights everywhere, there's lights, music, friends, family and food, very good food. Today … Continue reading Another Happy Thanksgiving!
This weekend I had a new project for my apartment. I didn't think anyone would be in the mood to help me set it up on Saturday night when I brought the kitchen island home, but my stepdad, who I won't name because he doesn't want me to talk about him on my blog, was … Continue reading My new kitchen island
I came home from work very hungry and wanted to cook something quickly, so I decided to go with shrimp and french fries. I usually just put these in the oven and toaster oven and they're done in less than 20 minutes; it's very easy and that's just what I wanted. The only problem was … Continue reading When the smoke detector goes off
This morning I woke up earlier than usual, even though I had a long day at work because today I had an appointment with my neurologist. It was just a routine checkup, to let him know how everything is going and of course I was very proud to tell him that, if everything keeps going … Continue reading Almost there!
Happy belated Thanksgiving everybody! I hope you all had a nice day with your family, friends and/or loved ones. As I had mentioned in a previous post, my parents were hosting Thanksgiving, which meant I would have to host too and officially welcome people into my new apartment. I did everything I could to keep … Continue reading Our first Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is only a week away, and that makes me nervous this year. My parents are hosting Thanksgiving this year, that means I will also welcome the family in my new apartment and that is just a little nerve-racking. I have only had a few visitors here and three of them were impressed because they … Continue reading Thanksgiving week
A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating
Remember the day I made mofongo? It was a year ago today, in my aunt's house and I was so happy, not only because I learned how to make something new, but because it was actually good. It wasn't that difficult but my aunt was there, telling me exactly what I had to do. Well … Continue reading The day I made picadillo
I have been waiting a long time, since I moved in about a month ago, to bake something in my new oven. I had the idea that when I got my own oven the fist thing I was going to bake was brownies. I like brownies and I like making brownies so, why not? But … Continue reading Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies
After a very long day yesterday, I have been tired all day, since this morning when I took my medicine at 8 am and went right back to sleep for 2 hours and a half. I was tired last night when I came home and I've been tired all day. Because of this I was … Continue reading Live, laugh and forget you’re tired
Since I last told you about my apartment, I had just painted my bathroom door. I'm not sure but I think that was the last big thing I had done, besides cleaning. It was the last thing until yesterday when I finally got a dining room table! It's not that big, which is perfect because … Continue reading My dining room table!
Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking
It doesn't end! I moved in exactly one week ago, last Friday and I just unpacked the last of my stuff; I think. One week to unpack everything! That's too much. But, unpacking doesn't mean everything is in their right place, it just means I don't have anymore boxes, but it's still a little messy. … Continue reading Survived week one
I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!
