Favorite Etsy Shop: I am in LOVE with the website Etsy. If someone told me I could go on a shopping spree on any website there is a good chance I would pick that one. One of my favorites things to get on there are bookmarks (in case you haven’t figured it out I am an avid reader.) The shop Read and Wonder has the cutest bookmarks, both traditional paper ones and also magnetic ones. It has both Disney and “Friends” bookmarks so you know I am sold!
Favorite Wino App: Vivino is the perfect app for all wine lovers. Who hasn’t been in the wine aisle wanting to try something new but not having the slightest idea what wine to buy? With this app you take a photo of any wine label to uncork pricing, ratings, reviews, food paring suggestions and recommendations from the biggest community of more than 20 million wine lovers. The app is available at both the app store and google play store.
Favorite Coffee Table Inspiration: Funnily enough we don’t have a coffee table in our living room at the moment but when I saw this article 20+ Super Modern Living Room Coffee Table Decor Ideas That Will Amaze You I decided it may be time to get one.
Favorite Sweet Treat: I have always had a huge sweet tooth and am a strong believer that every meal should end in dessert, even breakfast. Better yet you can have dessert for breakfast like these Strawberry Shortcake Grilled Doughnuts. I mean holy yum!
Favorite Kicks: My Chucks are probably my most used shoes in my closet, besides flip flops of course because you know Florida. I have them in 6 different colors and always want to add more. There are so many sites that can customize Converse sneakers but my favorite are the monogram ones that a few different sites do. You can get them here, here, and here to name a few.
Favorite Birthday Tradition: There is nothing better than forming family traditions over the years and lucky for me I will be having kids during the time of Pinterest. This mom started the cutest tradition that I hope to do when we finally have a kid(s). It is a Birthday Q & A album where she asks her kids the same 20 questions every year on their birthday. I bet it is so cute to see how the answers change over the year.
Favorite Dream Trip: MSC Cruises is offering a “World Cruise” departing in January 2019 that is 119 days and has 49 stops in 32 countries. According to the cruise itinerary, the global journey begins with stops at ports in four European cities: Marseille in France, followed by Barcelona and Málaga in Spain, then Funchal in Portugal. After that, the ship will cross the Atlantic to make stops at Caribbean destinations like St. Maarten, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Aruba, and a few others before making its way to the Pacific via the Panama Canal. From there, the ship will make extended stops in Los Angeles (two days), San Francisco (three days), Honolulu (two days). Additional stops include Bora Bora in French Polynesia, Auckland in New Zealand, and Sydney in Australia, along with several others. The cruise also includes 15 complimentary excursions, such as riding elephants in Pinnawela, taking a dip in the lagoons of Moorea, or touring national parks, according to the press release. Now for the fantasy part…prices START at $16,999 but a girl can dream right?
Favorite Funny: There are always funny compilations of tweets floating around from reactions to television shows, current events, mean celebrity tweets (thanks Jimmy Kimmel), etc but my favorite are tweets about marriage life. They are so relatable that you can’t help but laugh.
Favorite Awwwww: Bryce Harper, a player for the Washington Nationals, got married in January and the lining of his midnight-blue tuxedo jacket was silk-screened with the couple’s engagement photos as well as individual photos of his soon to be wife. I mean how freaking sweet is that??
Favorite Puerto Rican Bite: If you have never had an empanada before you have no idea what you are missing. My grandmother makes them from time to time and oh my goodness they are so yummy. I have had both her chicken and beef versions and while they are both great I prefer the beef ones. If you ask Sunny what her favorite thing is that grandma makes she always answers empanadas, of course she doesn’t pronounce it correctly which makes it even cuter. You can get 16 different empanada recipes here. And yes I realize empanadas are not strictly a Puerto Rican dish 🙂
