I have been pretty die hard about disconnecting (or attempting to) after 3pm on Fridays and enjoying my family all weekend. Mondays I am more refreshed, Starbucks in hand, and ready to tackle my workload. This week is a busy one. I have 50 11 projects to work on and a post I want to share with so many of my new favorite beauty products that I’ve discovered since taking on private makeup clients again. Honestly, it is weeks like these I wish I had an assistant or that I had done some work over the weekend. But doing the latter means that my kids’ suffer the consequence and I am no longer about that life.
Instead, this weekend we celebrated the birthday of the man who have given me my whole world, all three of them. We also got to spend some time in La Villita, better known as Chicago’s Little Mexico. We were invited to this event by Pebbles and I thought it would be fun for the kids. We are always looking for something different to do with them. The Pebbles Play tour sponsored by YOXO was exactly that type of different we were looking for. You see, while the kids got to build guitars out of Pebbles cereal boxes with the help of sustainable toy company YOXO, they also got to embrace a bit of culture which as a Latino family, we are always up for. We want to make sure our children get the best of both worlds, in fact, with our diverse group of friends, all worlds. We love being able to surround ourselves with people who speak our language and teach our children about where my husband’s family comes from. The kids also got to enjoy rides, traditional Mexican food, and they spent the entire rest of the weekend playing with their makeshift guitars which peaked a serious interest in how we could approach creative play differently. But the best part was spending time together, whether it was making yogurt pops with the fun recipes Pebbles sent over, running around the festival ( E made me chase him, while I found no humor in it, he wouldn’t stop laughing), or singing along to their new guitars on the car ride home to classic 90’s alternative rock, made it a Saturday they won’t forget and that means everything to me.
