Café Sabroso - Café de Latino America

 **Today is Spanish Friday! This post is in Spanish with with an English translation! Enjoy!**

El otro día estaba en Wal-Mart.  Típicamente no comprar en wal-mart pero está muy cerca y estaba fuera de café. No estoy seguro cómo sucedió eso porque yo vivo de café. Jaja!

Estaba mirando el café que normalmente consigo cuando una bolsa me llamó la atención. ¡Todo la bolsa estaba en español! No es muy a menudo se ve signos o productos en español donde yo vivo. Me encanta encontrar cosas en español por supuesto lo compré. ¡Además era sólo $5!

Se llama Café Sabroso - La nueva generación de cafés latinos. La historia de la compañía está en un lado de la bolsa y hay una traducción en inglés en el otro lado. Es interesante a mi que el lado español estaba hacia fuera a la tienda.  Tal vez no se dieron cuenta que era en español e inglés.

En cuanto a qué sabía ¡estaba delicioso! Mejor bolsa de $5 de café que he tenido. Sin duda lo compraré otra vez. También me gusta el hecho de que es Rainforest Alliance Certified. Siempre compro café que tiene esta certificación. Yo también quiero apoyar las empresas latinas. Este café me permite hacer las dos cosas.

Me encanta agradables sorpresas como esta. ¿Has encontrado algo sorprendente en español? ¡Hágamelo saber!

The other day I was in Wal-Mart. I typically do not shop at Wal-Mart, but it is close and I was out of coffee. I'm not sure how that happened because I live off coffee. haha!

I was looking at the coffee I normally buy when a bag caught my eye. The whole bag was in Spanish! It is not very often you see signs or products in Spanish where I live. I love finding things in Spanish, so of course I bought it. Plus it was only $5!

It's called Café Sabroso - The new generation of Latin Coffees. The story of the company is on one side of the bag and there is a translation in English on the the other side. It's interesting to me that Spanish side was facing out at the store. Maybe they didn't realize that it was in Spanish and English.

As far as the taste, it was delicious!  Best $5 bag of coffee I've had. No doubt I'll buy it again. I also like that it is Rainforest Alliance Certified. I always buy coffee that has this certification. I also want to support Latino businesses. This coffee allows me to do both.

I love pleasant surprises like this. Have you found something surprising in Spanish? Let me know!

Our Summer Soundtrack, Aquí, Allá!

Photo from

I think we have found our Summer soundtrack! Thank goodness it's not FROZEN! I can sing you every word to every song from that movie, because for the past 2 months that has been the only thing Liam wants to listen to in the car. Not to mention that we were watching the movie once a week!  I think it's about time for us to thaw out and warm up and I found just the thing!

Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band's latest Spanish album, Aquí, Allá! Not only does Liam love dancing to it, but I love listening to it too! It's not everyday that you find children's music that you actually enjoy as an adult, but Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band's latest album fits that bill.

Liam has been singing along to Lucky Diaz's first Spanish album for awhile now. It's one of the first albums that he learned the words too (followed by Frozen). That is why I was so excited to hear that they were making a second album! And it does not disappoint! It's catchy and heartfelt with a nod to Hispanic culture. I find myself singing along too. I've even caught my husband singing in the car! hehe!

The fact that Liam is singing in Spanish is what makes me the most excited! I've noticed English is becoming his dominant language.  I expected that seeing as we live in the USA, but it's still a little disappointing.  Any time I can encourage Spanish and have fun at the same time I do it! Hearing him shout out "Órale!" from the backseat is music to my ears. Thanks for another great album Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band!

Look Who's Back!

Well, hello there! My intent to keep up with the blog was thwarted by homecoming readiness activities. You know things like, finding the perfect dress, making signs, and freaking out over every little detail.

It was perfect. I don't know why I freaked out. Having my sailor back in my arms made everything else obsolete.

I could not have asked for a better homecoming. Liam running up to his Daddy and squeezing his leg was the best ending to deployment. I was so worried about how he'd react to having Daddy back. Again I stressed for nothing. They picked right back up where they left off. Only now Liam is talking in full sentences and no longer needs most of the assistance he did when Pablo left.

I have to give a huge shout out to my photographer, Holly of Shutterly {Sweet} Photography. She captured our homecoming moments perfectly. All of the emotions and love of our day can be seen in her photography!

Now that I'm not sending out care packages every month and now that I'm not absorbed in being the sole caregiver to a two year old, I'm going to try and keep up with the blog once again.

Although, we are getting ready to move to a bigger place (with a backyard!!) and that may keep me from posting on a weekly basis. We'll be sifting through boxes and unpacking, but my plan is to try and post at least once a week after we're settled in. I'll warn you now - these may not be the greatest posts you have ever read, but I will at least be posting something.

Thanks for sticking around, friends!
