Weekend Wrap-Up: Memorial Weekend

Oh how I loooove long weekends. I was counting down the hours at work on Friday ready to be set FREE! Lil Mama and I didn’t have any plans for the weekend, so we picked up and left for NYC. You see, I like a schedule; I like consistency so this spontaneous trip was seriously out of my comfort zone. But, it was to see my boo in the big apple so I went with it…and I’m glad I did, we had a ball, as we always do in NYC.

The weather was sunny and warm and Saturday was crazy muggy – but better than a weekend full of rain. We spent the majority of the weekend outdoors taking in the sites and taking advantage of all the great memorial weekend activities.

Highlights:
We took a ferry over to Governor’s Island and explored the historic island. There was music, crafts, and bike riding. We got a little too close to the water and got splashed!

We love love love the Night at the Museum movies so I was psyched to bring lil mama to the American Museum of Natural History. She got really excited seeing some of the same things in the museum from the movie.

I had my *first* Coldstone experience. And I WILL be going back!!

Random subway dancing at the end of the day made everyone smile.

My weekend trips to NY have been great – but I’m glad to be home. It’s a beautifully dirty city; I wanted to shower in hand sanitizer haha. But the food, oh the fooood in NYC will have me going back in a heartbeat.

That’s my weekend wrap-up. Do share your weekend highlights!!

NuvoTV Presents the Model Latina Season 5 Premiere!

Now that Scandal is over (can you say cliffhanger season finale?!) I’ve been trying to find another TV show to tune into. Enter Model Latina! Model Latina is like America’s Next Top Model but full of beautiful sexy Latinas!!! Many people don’t know that I’m half Latina!! Yep, my father is from Colombia…but no one believes me because I don’t speak Spanish. Whomp Whomp. I love seeing people of color featured in television and film, and that’s why I’m psyched about season 5 of Model Latina on NuvoTV!

This season of Model Latina, which is filmed in South Beach (hot!) promises to be the most exciting season yet combining beaches, fashion, and Latin flair (hot, hot, hot!). For those looking for a new show to follow, look no further!

The Rundown: NuvoTV’s hit competition reality show is back and better than ever with its fifth exciting season! Tune in to the May 28 premiere of Model Latina South Beach and meet the 10 beautiful new Latinas who are on a quest to kick their competition off the runway as they compete for a huge cash prize and modeling contract! This time, there are hot new celebrity judges, more intense challenges – one takes place underwater! – and the sexy factor is through the roof! Prepare to break a sweat! Click HERE for a sneak peak video!

This isn’t your ordinary reality show, though I’m assuming it’ll have some moments of serious drama! But at the heart of this show is promoting and supporting lovely Latinas and diversifying the media. Yes and yes! I’ll be channeling my inner svelte model as I channel into this new hot-hot-hot season!
Be sure to tune into the new season Monday May 28th! You can follow Model Latina on Facebook and Twitter and Meet The Cast

My Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a FUN weekend. The weather was great and we spent most of it outdoors.

I got lilys again from my wonderful BF…just because :)

This Saturday was my first day volunteering on my daughter’s baseball team. My body is killing me.

We attended a kite festival in Boston and our kite was a joke, though we tried.

Lil Mama was fascinated with putting together a dummy human brain from Children’s Hospital.

Lots of playing in the park and on the monkey bars.

Helped my niece celebrate her 3rd birthday with some fun and shopping.

By the end of the weekend lil mama was beat…and so was I.

Wonderful weekend with friends and family. Sad it’s over.

How was your weekend?
