Because I’m Mexican…

Because I’m Mexican I made Ben a killer quesadilla for dinner… after all Mexican food is my specialty :)IMG_4430

Because I’m Mexican, and have quite the voluptuous booty,  means my quesadilla must be much smaller so I still fit in my pants…IMG_4423

Because I’m Mexican I will not admit that the beans on this salad are from a can. My abuelita would be so ashamed…IMG_4427

Because I’m Mexican I will call my afternoon snack an escamocha and not fruit salad with cottage cheese…IMG_4421

Because I’m Mexican I will justify drinking an iced coffee this afternoon as a way to avoid a siesta… IMG_4420

Because I’m Mexican “yo quiero pan dulce” for dessert…pan dulce 2 (source)

but I only had Kashi cookies for dessert so I ate those (con leche)…IMG_4435

Because I’m Mexican I was in Ballet Folklorico when I was a kid… even though I looked very out of place with my red hair and lack of skin pigment…FOLK-LORICO!!!

That’s nothing a little blue eye shadow and red lipstick couldn’t help… FOLK-WHITE-DRESS-ICO

Because I’m Mexican I made my first Holy Communion when I was in second grade. Well, technically that’s a Catholic thing, but it really goes hand in hand, right?  Ha, look at my mom and dad. Funny MANDO-STACHE

Because I’m Mexican I wear too much make-up and huge gold earrings when I go out. Caliente! DSCN9893

Because I’m Mexican I can post all these things…

“Si Yo Puedo”

    Haha love the post theme! I should do a “because I’m Guatemalan” post and copy you (imitation is the best form of flattery?)

    Cute pictures of Little Monica!

    I’m not a Mexican, but I grew up in Pico Rivera, so I know of what you speak! I miss pan dulce, home made tortillas (mais) and menudo!

    Lol, how did you get red hair? Genetics are so funny. I found Veggie Sticks at my grocery store this morning and bought a bag. Half of it is now gone. Gah! A new addiction.

    Love this post, I thought immediately like Freya about copying this idea. Except I am German so my post would include lots of beer, kraut and inappropriate Octoberfest costumes. :-)

    LOVE this post! Very creative and oh, so true. My husband is Mexican but I always feel that I am more Mexican than he is. Thanks for the early morning laugh!

    Me gusta! It made me wonder: Where did your red hair come from? (I’m Italian and have blonde hair … so I feel you.)
