The Holidays are over..the diet begins!

Uh oh did I really eat all that???

My Boys gingerbread mayham!

The fancy chola has a huge holiday cola! And I'm not talking a carbonated beverage..I'm talking the beef stick, cheese ball, tamale, cookie binge excess that can only come from Christmas. In my family food equals love and happiness. And boy am I happy and loved...just ask the strained button on my pants. Every year I say that I'm not gonna over do it, but the queso beckons me, the tamales sing the song of the siren, and I answer those pleas of "eat me" "eat me", with a gusto that can only be described as forbidden love realized. I joke but my struggle with food is a difficult hurdle, that I have never been able to conquer. 2009 is my year, I will focus more energy on creative endeavors, and less on the culinary saboteurs that haunt me! I hope that the new year will bring me the inspiration to perfect my handbags, create new patron pin-ups, and find new outlets for my limited talents! Reading the blogs of fellow creative types, has really inspired me. I sometimes get overwhelmed by such awesome talent, but it also motivates me to carve out my own little niche in the creative world. I hope this year is full of hope an inspiration for all, and I will look forward to reading the adventures of you talented ladies that I so envy! (I hope that the visual feasts of my fellow bloggers can replace some of my actual ones!) Keep creating deliciousness ladies!


  1. That's hillarious! Yo tambien!!
    However, after getting sick for those 6 horrible days, I haven't really been snacking or to hungry. Lets just say in fear of El Cucuy de la Pansa coming back!! Anywho, lot's of luck I'll send some Cucuy de la Pansa vibes to you. That'll help for a while at least! I always have "the mark of the feast" but it has been washed away (For Now).

  2. And the boys look gorgeous as usual! Cute gingerbread house. Sam looks like he's cooking up a recipe for disaster in the second photo. hahaha.. Well off to start the day.

  3. :) Hey there, Happy New Year! I hope the New Year brings happiness and continued health.

    How cute your boys look in front of their gingerbread house! I also ate a lot, but such wonderful foods, how can you not! Take care and I look forward to seeing your new pin-ups:)

  4. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  5. I just found your blog and I think it's too funny. You say everything I felt after the holidays but just didn't blog about. I'm still laughing. Your boys are so cute they remind me of my three when they were little. Keep up the blogging.
