Around Seattle in Two Days

Around Seattle in Two Days

Hey Party-Makers, Our vacation is officially over. But honestly it was SUCH a refreshing time. Usually after vacation, I feel like I have to take another vacation to recover from a week of wandering around. And while I did introvert to the MAX this Sunday […]

Plan a Better Vacation Using your Smart Phone

Hey Party-Makers, if you’ve been reading regularly, you might be wondering if this blog is still a partnership between me and Ben. And to answer your question, it TOTALLY is. There’s just one of us that has a little bit more time than the other […]

The Party You Haven’t Been Having

The Party You Haven’t Been Having

Hey Party-Makers, You know what I dream of sometimes? I dream of party budgets the size of Lauren Conrad’s casual afternoon lunches. I dream of flowers in every corner of my house. I dream of being a calligrapher/hiring a calligrapher for everything. I dream of […]

The Culture of Caldo

The Culture of Caldo

There’s something to be said about food that takes just a little bit longer. Food that takes planning, food that you cook through the day. When I was growing up, my family was late to everything. Church, family reunions, leaving for vacations. You name it, we […]

Happy Friday, Party-Makers! For the next couple of weeks, we’re celebrating Latino Heritage and Culture. What this means for our household is that we get to eat ALLLLL of my favorite Latino recipes. I’m not mad about it, and neither is Ben.

Celebra conmigo! Celebrate with me!

Celebra conmigo! Celebrate with me!

Hey Party-Makers! I woke up this September morning celebrating all the mornings in my house that were filled with music in Spanish. I’m grateful for the impromptu dance sessions that would happen mid Sunday afternoon, while we were trying to clean the house. I woke […]

Labor Day, Adventure & Rest

Labor Day, Adventure & Rest

Hey Party-Makers, We’re starting to approach that sweet spot in the year where there is at least one holiday every month until the end of the year! In our house, we’re getting pretty excited about Labor Day coming up. One of the things we love about […]

On Invitation

On Invitation
