Astronauts, Launches, a Kickstarter from @SpaceFlightGrp and #ISSRDC

I've never met anyone that had the opportunity to see a shuttle or rocket launch and wasn't changed by it. Most of us become addicted, lining the streets, bridges and nearby waterways to feel that rumble. 

Three years ago today, I was sitting on the banks of the Indian River, with my three sisters, hoping to see my first and last shuttle launch.

Disney On Ice is Back in Chicago!

Disney on Ice is back! Before I had a couple little tastes of Disney, you couldn't convince me it was at all entertaining. But then I went to Disney World, actually watched a couple of the films and last year I went to Disney on Ice. So much fun!

Disney on Ice is coming back to Chicago in just a couple weeks, and I have a ticket promo for all my blog readers that want to go.

Canyon Rafting With The Adventure Company! #Travel #Adventure

Finding good, safe outfitters when you are traveling is always important. I like to do a little research before every trip, but there are some times when you are traveling without concrete plans that you need to make a choice on the go. 

Got some information in my email today about The Adventure Company and thought I would share it with my readers. I know a lot of you are always looking for travel ideas for the family.

Mango Shortcake You'll Want to Crave #Recipe #DairyFree

With mangoes being in season, they have been super cheap so I always grab a couple at a time. The extra leaves me with one to try making something new, even if I don't always know what that something new is going to be. A couple weeks ago I was thinking about strawberry shortcake, only I didn't have strawberries on hand. 

So instead I made this!

Milo's Kitchen Treats for Zorro and a #MKTreatTruck #Giveaway

*Disclosure: This is a sponsored post the Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats, gift cards, and information have been provided by Milo’s Kitchen® to complete this review. All opinions are my own, with input from Zorro. *

When it comes to Zorro's health and diet, everyone tells me I spoil him, but I don't see it that way. Everyone should provide their family pet with the best diet possible in order to maintain their health.  When the Milo's Kitchen Treats folks contacted me, I looked over all the ingredients and info on their website and was impressed. So Zorro and I decided to give them a try!

The Secret to More Fans is...More Babies! #MiEquipoMiHerencia #futbol

*Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers. All opinions are 100% mine.*
It's FINALLY here! FĂștbol time is always a big time for my family and friends. For my immediate family, its all about our team, mi equipo, but everyone in the extended family roots for a different team depending on the country they feel the strongest about.  The more kids you have, the larger your cheering section. My cousins and I all identify with different Latin American countries based on where all my tias are from-- funny how that works out.

Erasing Allergy Face With #ZYRTEC & Jackie Gomez #ENFRENTATUSALERGIAS

*I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour for Latina Mom Bloggers on behalf of ZYRTEC® ALLERGY FACE® and received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.*

I feel like I have been talking about allergies for weeks now, and that's mostly because I found something that works incredibly well for me. One of the sponsors at Hispanicize was Zyrtec, and because I was in the middle of a seasonal allergy moment and struggling through work and travel, I gave it a try. OMG! I ended up having so many conversations with friends about their own allergy med experiences and struggles-- seriously, when you are going through it you feel the need to apologize for your appearance and performance.
