Time with my Girls & Olvera Street

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Girl Time!

Since I have moved away from home, and away from my friends...I try to make it a point to invite my girls over for anything. It was a bright and sunny day so I thought it would be perfect to go to the pool. Brigitte and Carly have been my good friends for ages. Carly has been around for Jude, almost like a god mother...so its always fun to have her around. Crazy Carl lol.


When I was at the store I picked up some wine and fruit for a little snack pool side.


When we were younger, Carly and I would sit by the pool all summer and tan.

Tanning is love.

It is so relaxing to lay out. Make sure you use sunscreen and cover your face. My face is so sensitive, I had to keep my sun hat on. I tweeted a picture like this and someone thought I was on vacation haha. I am blessed. Carly and Jude taking a dip.
Little baby Noah is out new addition. Brigitte had him 2 months ago. He is soooo sweet. He looks so relaxed under a huge umbrella.


Mama bear, Brigitte catching some rays.

I dont know why Jude crosses his legs, but that is the way he sits in every chair. Its so cute!

For lunch I made some of my jaiva. Its so good and fresh!

After the girls left, I cleaned up and then my sister joined me that night. We all got our hair dyed. Well I did all the work hahah...those turkeys! It was my little sisters first time visiting my new place so it was a nice excuse.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Ive always wanted to go downtown to Olvera Street to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. It reminds me of TJ, Mexico. Filled with traditional blankets, purses, sandals, toys, candies, food, and of course music!

To get into the spirit of things, I got Jude a little Mexican button up. So cute! I wanted to buy myself a dress...I resisted.


What I did get was candy!!

I got myself some goodies, and I picked up a sampler of Mexican sweets for my mom as well.

There were sooo many little toys up and down the little street. Here is a picture of Jude making music with an accordion.

I'm not sure what the name of the little restaurant we stopped at, but it was open....almost like a little stand, and it was really tasty and pretty cheap. Along with our meal there was a little band walking around playing for tips. The singer had a strong voice, beautiful.

I had a sope plate.


He was like "You are gonna take pictures of what we are eating?" He obviously doesn't know much about blogging ahhaha.

The last time that we were here, we came for a stroll and a hot churro before ice skating :)


The last stop of the day: Snow cones!!

The day was perfect! I love Olvera street. Everything about it. Its a nice reminder that I am Mexican, and its a beautiful thing.
