Día de los Niños-Easter-Cheerios Bars

April is a busy month for us. Family birthday parties, double spring break (one for papi and one for our little kindergartner), Easter, and El Día del Niño. Some of you might be wondering what exactly that last one is. Well, we’d love to share.

“Children’s Day (El Día Del Niño) is celebrated as a tribute to children in Mexico on April 30. Children are recognized as an important part of society so the day focuses on the importance of loving, accepting and appreciating children.” — Timeanddate.com
This holiday is reserved for our kids to create something artsy (so that mamá can hang/frame), have a picnic outdoors and cook/bake something sweet of their choice. Well since Easter is so close to this holiday, Mia insisted that we make bunny and egg-shaped treats this year. So we’re mixing the two and celebrating both holidays all month long because why not, right?

And today, we’re super excited to share that we’ve partnered up with General Mills to celebrate Día de los Niños (Children’s Day) by creating a Cheerios recipe. It’s easy peasy to make, and tasty for all those sweet kiddos in your life. And as mentioned, also perfect for Easter as it has all the cute pastel chocolate colors and bunny/egg shapes.

  • Having a spa day at home with this little love of mine before we get ready for dinner and bed time. Spa as in her putting on cucumber slices on her eyes and pretending to meditate while I also place cucumber slices but also massage in this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque. Because I'm almost 40 (eek!) and need all the help I can get from all the Southern California beach sun exposure.

I absolutely love the way this masque smells! So fresh and it has a light water gel texture to it. But the best part is the convenience factor for us busy moms. I just apply it right after I wash my face and sleep with it overnight. I wash it off in the morning and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, softer and brighter. You can find this amazing @Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque @UltaBeauty I left you the direct link to purchase on their site via link in my bio.🤗 #IworkwithExuviance #Exuviance

This Neutrogena #Rainbath Ocean Mist shower gel smells divine and reminds me of my 20s when I lived in a tiny cottage in Manhattan Beach, CA. It's a fresh ocean scent all bottled up. Love the way it feels on my skin and it doesn't leave a heavy residue. And if you're a Costco member, you can get this large #NeutrogenaRainbath 40oz bottle @Costco in stores and online at http://bit.ly/NeutrogenaRainbath (link in my bio) #Neutrogena #ad @Neutrogena #Costco

What if I told you that you can now charge your phone AND save your camera phone photos at the same exact time?? This @SanDisk iXpand Base device charged my phone and backed up over 2,000 pictures and videos instantly!! .
.
Unlike the cloud, there are NO recurring monthly fees and you can have the peace of mind knowing that your photos are right by your bedside. But the best part of it all is that it's super fast! Much faster than backing up to a cloud over Wi-Fi. .
The SanDisk iXpand Base is now available at Amazon and perfect to add to your holiday wish list. Just sayin' 😉  #iXpandBase #BackupAndCharge

The truth is, this kid, although little compared to most of her classmates and teammates has such a huge personality, brains and never ending energy. .
.
She’s excelling in school by leaps and bounds. Experienced her 1st soccer championship game at age 6 and is getting a Sr yellow belt.  But don’t get me wrong, she has melt downs, she’s scared to be alone and puts up a good fight with clothes and shoes. Apparently everything is “itchy ivy.” Hence why these @skechers are on repeat even w/ dresses. Two Thumps up for being comfy and making her “faster”. 😆👟🏃‍♀️#ad @skechers #kidsstyle #toontown

Oh @joannagaines, just take all my money, k? Anyone else stock up on some Hearth & Hand at home when it came out last week? Absolutely had to buy this gorgeous table I saw displayed in one of their online @Target ads the second Hearth & Hand went live. Along with all these goodies. Our home entrance definitely needed a little TLC and I'm loving this mix of all my favorite things. It now feels cozy and welcoming. Are you a #joannagaines fan too? 😊🌿 #HearthandHand #fixerupper #bossmom #motheroverloadhome
  • When you have 💯 things to do but it’s a gorgeous day out & the kiddos keep asking over and over if we can go to the safari park. Mama absolutely gave in. 🤣
