Married Life

Burger Fest

I love food more specifically I love burgers all types of burgers: beef, chicken, turkey, vegan, I really don’t discriminate when it comes to burgers, I love them all. That is why I am beyond excited to go to the Roscoe Village Burger Fest! The Fest is taking place today and tomorrow 11am -10pm, if you are in Chicago I suggest you take your happy little butt over there. Some of my favorite joints will be there, for a complete listing go here.

Eat responsibly,


Cubs vs Mets

I love baseball.

Wrigley Field Chicago Cubs vs Mets May 18th 2013

One of my favorite places in Chicago is Wrigley Field. There’s no other ballpark like Wrigley, yes my opinion is biased I’m a Cubs fan and the only other ball park I have been to is the Sox’s and let’s just say I was not impressed.

This year the husband and I were able to attend the Cubs vs Mets game at the Skybox on Sheffield, we got the tickets for $65 (a steal!) through the DePaul Alumni Association (I love my alma mater), this tickets usually go for $145! The $65 included food (all you can eat) and drinks (all you can drink). The views on this particular rooftop are amazing!

This was taken from the third floor bleachers before the game started, we were definitely pleased with the view :)

A group of Met fans took over a small section of the bleachers, look at them all wearing their bright orange shirts, too bad Met’s lost to the Cubs 8-2 :D

Now let’s talk about the food, the views were spectacular but the food was delicious, I’m salivating just thinking about it. We pretty much had everything on the menu (okay I lied their menu is pretty big click here to see it). I had a grilled cheese burger with Goose Island’s Famour pub chips, one Bratwurst topped with Sauerkraut, beer onions, beer mustard and a hot dog picture below, this was the only thing I remembered to take a picture of before I devoured it. Don’t worry we walked a total of 6 miles to-and-fro the ballpark to be able to eat all the wonderful delicious food we ate.

Trust me when I say it was as delicious as it looks!

I am definitely glad we were able to attend the DePaul Chicago Cubs Rooftop Outing, last year they had it on the day of our wedding and well we just couldn’t miss our wedding for the rooftops, although the hubster and I were ready to skip the ceremony and head over to the game, crazy sports fans! 


1 Year Down, A Lifetime To Go


To the love of my life,

April 21st, 2012 was the happiest day of my life (to-date), it was the day you and I became one and my life became whole. You complete me in more ways than one, you are the kindest and most loving person I know. You are patient with me and for this I am eternally grateful. Thank you for being my best friend and for loving me and all my craziness. Never in a million years did I think I would be married before the age of 30 and yet here I am, married to the best husband I could ever dream of and for this I am grateful plans don’t always work out.

Every day is a new adventure with you, your corkiness is refreshing, your humor still dry as ever but I love you, every day more. I cannot imagine life without you by my side, thank you for all the memories we have made so far and for the many more that are to come. You are my better half, here’s to one year down and a lifetime to go.

You are my heart,


Happy Birthday My Beloved


To the one my heart adores, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (Remind me to take more pictures of you & with you I had to look through my phone to try to find a picture and this is the only one I found, I need to work on this).

Best friend, I love you with all of my heart and I am glad I get to celebrate this and all your birthdays for the rest of your life. Thank you for allowing me to be your partner in crime, for all the late nights and spontaneous songs and story tellings. You are incredible & I wish you the best this world has to offer, may doors always be open wherever life may take you and may I always be by your side.

Happy Birthday Love Bug!

Yours Always,


Merry Christmas!!!


Happy Everything!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with the ones you love. I celebrate Christmas so I am super excited to spend some quality time with my family. I don’t know if all Latinos are the same but in my family the big day is the 24th (Christmas Eve) that’s when my family gets together to celebrate, which is perfect because I married a white man (whom I absolutely adore him) and he celebrates the 25th (Christmas Day) so that’s when we get together with his family.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with the ones you love!
