Welcome to The Housewife Wannabe

I hope everyone enjoyed the day off yesterday! After the weekend we had, my husband and I sure needed it! See, to celebrate my birthday, I decided to invite some of our closest friends over to watch the Brazil Vs. Chile game (with vegan snacks, lunch and dessert included. No alcohol for us, of course). If you watched it, you know the game was absolutely nerve-racking. Luckily for us, we were able to beat Chile on the penalty shots—but it was a close shot, too close! On Friday, we play against Colombia, a team that has been playing surprisingly well.


At my grandma’s house there’s always been, since I was a kid, a cast iron skillet used ONLY for fried eggs. My grandma’s “huevos a la ranchera” were an absolute favorite of mine when growing up and although her method was anything but healthy (the skillet was always half full with vegetable oil and she drowned the eggs in the gently warmed oil), I still love them. My husband cringes whenever I tell this story, I think it’s the stuff his nightmares are made of.


Before we start with today’s topic, I want to thank each one of you who took a moment from your busy lives to wish me a happy birthday yesterday. I had a lovely day, a calm day, which I spent in great company doing the things I love. I felt very special, loved and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life (all of you included), and, also, very grateful for being healthier and happier than I have ever been. The big 3-0 may be just around the corner now, but it most definitely does not scare me. After all, age is just a number. I’ll be forever young at heart! Hehe.


For the second year in a row, and for its 50th anniversary, Juannio auctioned off a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings especially designed by Alessa Designs. This yearly event, one of the most prominent and anticipated charity events in Central America, has one single purpose: to raise funds for the Instituto Neurológico de Guatemala.


I know I’ve been a little MIA lately. Last week was kind of a nightmare week for me; I couldn’t train due to being sick, we had all sorts of things going on in the house and, well, there’s the World Cup distracting everyone. Luckily I feel much better now, so we can pick up where we left off.
