Look of the day
Hi girls, I'm sorry today's post is a little late. This week hasn't been the greatest for me health-wise, so today I've decided to spend the morning at home, relaxing and taking it easy. Something is terribly wrong with my body and we're not sure what it is. I've done all sorts of exams and have taken some medication, but still, nothing seems to be improving.
It had been a while since I had a weekend well-spent in the kitchen! After reading Gwyneth Paltrow's new book, It's All Good, I had a very lengthy list of items I wanted to try. After finding nearly all of them, I put on my super girly apron, turned on some soul-pumping classic jazz and got my Gwyneth on!
This week is extra special, I have two "Look of The Day" posts for you! When was the last time this happened? See, I never stop trying to make you happy!
What a weekend, I tell you! Phew! I feel like we barely got any rest, it was nonstop! I wish I could say we were busy, out and about, doing fun weekend activities but the most fun I had was actually during a video shoot my friend from Wunderkeks and I did on Saturday morning. We invaded a friend's garden (making a huge confetti mess, I should add) to shoot a teaser of an event he and I will be hosting soon. I can't wait to tell you all about it but, for now, it will have to wait!
To be honest, our trip to Chicago felt way too short. I was very sad to leave! The weather wasn't the greatest for the first few days, with temperatures in the low 30's and even snow! When the spring temperatures finally decided to show, it was already time for us to go.
To start off, I just want to say how proud my husband and I are to announce the arrival of our baby niece, Annalee. She was born on Friday, weighing a healthy 6 pounds 9 ounces, and is a beautiful and perfect combination of her mommy and daddy. She's precious, and we can't wait to meet her in person in a few days!
Can you believe that we're only a few days away from Semana Santa (Holy Week- BIG holiday over here)? Time has gone by so fast that we haven't even thought about what our plans will be. Maybe we'll head to the beach (as we do every year) or perhaps we'll do something different- we'll see. Do you girls have any plans?
Finally, after spending nearly 5 days sick as a dog, with a horrible cold and bronchial-type cough, I was able to step out and go for a light run this morning. Seriously, being sick sucks! And although I am still not 100% back to normal, I am just happy to spend at least 30 straight minutes without coughing.
I've never looked forward to a Monday as much as I did today! After a lovely Valentine's Day spent in the company of our closest friends and a restful, and quite tranquil, weekend at the beach, I woke up this morning actually looking forward to the week ahead. Perhaps I'm just happy that I'll be seeing my dad in a matter of days, or maybe I'm just anxious for our volcano expedition to happen. It will be my first volcano hike here in Guatemala and we'll be setting-up camp at the crater to spend the night up there above the clouds.
This past weekend was spent mostly indoors, staying focused and working tirelessly on my next article for Look Magazine. For their next edition, they have asked me to write an entire spread (a few pages) about our recent trip to Asia. So as you can imagine, there was a lot of writing and a LOT picture-sorting to do. Being given such a big space in any magazine is a real honor and I do not want to disappoint.
