My Saturday In Pictures

Woke up early and baked a German Chocolate cake!

Did my nails orange for the season...

Decided to head downtown to get supplies for my husband's health brujeria. Had to snap a pic of this on the way... What do you think it's going to be? It's taken them 2 years to get to this point...

I was super excited that my nails matched the buttons on my shirt!

Almost there...

I love going downtown but it's not really safe to take
pictures there so I usually take them from the car.

We had to search through a lot of this to find what we were looking for.

Annnnnd we finally found it here.

The newest cure for my husband's feet?
Fermenting a liter of cane alcohol with lime,
onion and garlic for 15 days and then drinking it...

You will never catch me drinking anything out of an old salsa bottle.

Time for street food! I thought I'd get some of those papas locas I always see.
Con todo? Sure!
BAD IDEA. Inedible.

That's better... Ish...

Time for Soriana. Our purchase was FREE after using some of our points!

This guy washed our car while we shopped. 50 pesos.

Calzones for dinner!

And then an 80's movie marathon.
I don't know how those cans got there.

Lucy hates Tom Hanks.

At the end of the day, some of us were more worn out than others...


  1. Looks like a fun day to me! Seeing those pictures of downtown Juarez, remind me when my grandparents and I used to go there. It's been 19 years since my last trip there, but it still looks the same to me. :)

    Love the orange nail polish! Very cute that it matches your shirt.

    Now send me one of those calzones! Looks delicious! :)

  2. You should do more posts with pictures like this. :)

    BTW, I want that German Chocolate Cake!



  3. Agreed. That was fun but what's Lucy got against Tom Hanks? jajajaja

  4. Wow, your photos of downtown and las Papas Locas sure took me back to when we lived in Juarez for five months to finalize the adoption of our sons back in 1998! When you get a chance, please visit Thanks!

  5. Love the photos!! Also, quite surprised that it costs $50 pesos to wash a car in Juarez!! Same as in Cancun!! Normally I read everyone elses' stories and things are always cheaper for them. Still cheap, but you know :)

  6. Love the photos! Looks like an awesome Saturday.
