Cinco De Mayo: You’re Probably Doing It Wrong

 

Cinco De Mayo party and celebrations.

I don’t make of a big deal about Cinco De Mayo. You may be thinking, “Why the hell not?” It’s the perfect reason to have a margarita or drink tequila! You can wear a sombrero and make tacos!…Exactly. These are some reasons why you’re probably doing it all wrong by celebrating Cinco De Mayo this way. It’s not so much about what we celebrate, but rather HOW we celebrate it.

Easter Activities For Kids

Quick and Easy Easter Activities

When I was a kid, I loved Easter. My mom would organize an Easter Egg Hunt and provide treats for my brother and I. Of course, the delicious Easter dinners were also very appreciated, because yum! Now that I have a little one of my very own, I have way too much fun organizing some fun activities for her. In this blog posts, I’ll be sharing some fun, affordable and easy activities you can put together for your kids to create memorable Easter weekends.

Canada Day 2016 Events for Families

Canada Day 2016

Not only am I super excited for the long weekend, but I am super excited that it is Canada Day. It’s my little one’s second Canada Day, and this is special for us as she is the first Canadian born baby in my husband’s and my family. With that in mind, I’ve been looking for fun events to attend, or fun things to do, to celebrate the country that we love and live in. As I was in the mood for sharing, I’ve compiled a collection of activities happening in the city of Toronto with families in mind.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s day is a few days away, have you been shopping yet? I think about what I’m going to get my mom months in advance, but I don’t actually go shopping for her gift until days before. Now that I’m a mom, I have so much more fun thinking about what I want for mother’s day too. I suck at picking just one thing! I don’t really need anything, but there are so many things that I’d love to have. In case, you’re not sure about what to get your mom or partner this year, I’ve put together a lovely list of Mother’s Day Gift Ideas.

Sharing My Story On Chatelaine Magazine

Andrea Lazo and Christie Lazo

About two months ago, I noticed a post on Chatelaine Magazine’s Facebook page about a casting call for mothers and daughters as they were looking to examine the unique relationship for a special in their May issue. Little did I know that my email would catch the attention of the team at Chatelaine Magazine and that I would receive a response with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The results? My mom and I are featured and sharing intimate details about our relationship in the May 2016 issue of Chatelaine Magazine!

Toronto Family Day Activities 2016

Family Day Activities 2016

I am SO excited for this long weekend! Saturdays and Sundays fly by and I find myself wishing for a day in between; and it has also been TOO long since the last long weekend. I’m particularly excited about this year as we’ll be able to do something fun with our little lady! Last year, she was still too little to truly enjoy any activities in the city. While I was looking for Family Day activities for this weekend, I ran into so many wonderful options. I wish we could make it to all of them!

Christmas 2015: Top 5 Advent Calendars for Kids

There is nothing more joyful than counting down to Christmas with the help of an Advent Calendar. I have great memories of my chocolate filled calendars as a child; it was so hard waiting until the next day when you wanted more than one treat! Each year they get more and more creative, and 2015 seems to be a very fun year for the kiddies!

I found awesome advent calendars at Toys R Us that I wanted to share with all of you. I focused on non-edible ones, which I find are much more exciting and a great substitute in case of allergies.
