Un año mas~ Another year

2011 was a year of work. (for which I'm grateful)  
Will 2012 be different?
probably not.
You see,
living abroad changed us. I think for the best.
we want to live debt free
we want to buy our first home 
and pay it off 
and we want to travel
and see the world
debt free.

What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Breakfast in the City~ yellow cabs

  Remember the post I wrote about sisters? Well I finally did it, I went to New York! After 5 years, my older sister and I met up in New York City. I arrived on Thursday and first thing I did got it..went to my favorite place for breakfast, Le Pain Quotidien.

 I ordered the breakfast special, mushroom kale and parmesean frittata. It was scrumptious! 

Belgian waffles,,,ummm the best!
The whole weekend was full of fun, exciting and memorable moments that I can't just write one post, so consider this part one of my trip....Stay tuned!

Winter fun activities~cupcakes, crafts, and the tree

A few days ago we had really cold weather and I was lucky to have a day off from work, so Beli and I stayed at home and had a party. 
Just the two of us.
We made crafts~ (I love hobby lobby),
then baked cupcakes
and finally
we decorated the Christmas tree.
I love days like these!
