Today I'm sharing my Weekend Snapshots 41, brought to you by Mama Carrizo on a trike LOL! This was such a great part of my weekend! But before I get into that, let's start at the beginning..
My friend Jessica came in for the weekend from Austin to see my face and hang out with the kiddos. This was a big deal cause we've been talking about it forever! We met with some other friends Friday night at Boheme and highly enjoyed the amazing Vietnamese fries. We drank, we ate and we laughed. A lot! My kiddos loved her and either invaded her personal space (multiple times) or were leaving their hairs all over her haha!
Our first Houston Latina Bloggers event was Saturday and it was mucho fun! I mingled and laughed mucho with some inspiring ladies! My mom and sister attended along with my friend Jessica. It was cool to see my blogger homies meet my crazy familia! It was also great to see my familia meeting the people who have been inspiring me and motivating me in all aspects of my life. We ate some delicious food from Pollo Tropical, sweet goodies from Crumble & Co (OMG, I ate my very first macaron) and drank red Wildling Wine (I stuck with water) all while hanging out at the Thinking Girls Boutique. This store is the cutest with such a fresh vibe. You'll find goodies from all sorts of artists. The store hosts events and even has classes. Our event allowed people to connect and discuss the dreams they have with their brand or business. It's exactly what Connie, Jihane and I wanted to happen. We want to help our community with their ideas and dreams. Networking events like these are how we were able to put ours together. We met people who we wanted to collaborate with, discussed some terms and BAM! there it was! We're still really excited about how the event turned out, but we have plans for so much more for our City and our Latinos. Hope you'll stick around to see it!
E put Mama Carrizo's trike together Saturday so we met up with her Sunday afternoon to ride around. It was cool to see her smile. The smile was huge and she kept giggling. She went off the trail once and the sound of fear and happiness were hilarious! We did 6 miles, but E and I think she could have done more. Gotta respect the fact that she knows her limits, though. I mean, she hasn't been on a bike in ages! E went on his regular ride Sunday morning and sent me the cool picture of his friend getting some good air. After our ride, Mama Carrizo went home and we went to our favorite Mexican joint down the street. Alcohol is amazing after a bike ride. For real.

Cheers to the rest of the week!
