    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.)
