I was having quite a bit of trouble coming up with a title for this post, while I was browsing Hulu for something to watch in the background while I write, when I came across Woody Allen's aptly titled film, Husbands and Wives. And well, pues there you go. The picture is from a recent event we attended, and was ...

This is a new technique I crafted with recently. It turns out coloring rice to craft, do new projects with, or just to have lots of fun with, is pretty simple. And you get to use Kool-Aid! You can drink it too if you like. :-) What you'll need:  white rice Kool-Aid water measuring cups spoon plastic bag (such as sandwich bag ...

They said, "we're going to play kickball." The next thing I knew I was out on my sister's yard, chasing around after a ball, throwing my arms up in the air, and running around trying to make all three bases before getting hit anywhere on my body ...

I haven't been able to get in a car where the driver was not my husband, my really good friend, my mom, or my sister, for the past five years. To some, that might seem like not such a big deal. In reality, perhaps it's not. For me, though, it is something I struggle with on ...

Disclosure: JuanOfWords.com has partnered with Cricket Wireless as a 2014 Blog Ambassador. All opinions are my own. So my phone finally came in a couple of days ago! And I have to say, I have been playing with it for the past four days nonstop. I am going to admit that I am also pretty excited. ...

If you don't do it often. If you're not honest with yourself about your true dreams, and what they could potentially bring to your life, you could be denying yourself the luxury of truly being happy. And what does truly being happy actually mean? What does it look like? I think we spend a great deal of our ...

So now that you know how to color rice with Kool-Aid. As promised, here's a look at what I made with my colored rice. I immediately thought jewelry, of course. In this case, a necklace is what I was inspired to create. What you'll need:  colored rice cord (any color you choose; you can also use embroidery thread) glue ...

Lo que sube, siempre baja. Y lo que baja, siempre sube. That's the thing about life. You're never sure what twists or turns are coming up next. Mamá used to always say uno nunca sabe... If things were going "too good," uno nunca sabe. If the odds were stacked up against us, uno nunca sabe. if ...

Tonight, we just got home. It's Thursday night. Tomorrow's a regular school day. A work day. It's 12:17 a.m. and we're just now getting into bed. We drove out to see my family about an hour away. We were supposed to go to the circus, and didn't make it out after all. So we ...

People always suggest “have a great spring break.” This year, I think we really tried. Over the last eight days we tried to make the most of our time together. We didn’t go anywhere fancy. We didn’t do anything outrageous. We simply made an effort to do the things we rarely get to do these ...

Our washing machine gave out a couple of months ago. We have been meaning to replace it ever since then, but well, there's always something else that comes up. And since we haven't purchased a new one, every week, or every other week sometimes, we drive over to the neighborhood lavandería to wash our clothes. On this particular ...

They're not exactly new, but for us they've only recently become a regular source of healthy nutrition for our diet. Juan would say they're pipirisnais, or not for the people from his rancho, LOL! - believe me, we've had those discussions - but I have always insisted it's the way our ancestors used to eat. Without any preservatives. Natural ...
