New name, New home!

You first might have met my puppy as Foxy, well it turns out that her name is now Pimientita (meaning "pepper" in Spanish), but I call her Pippa for short :)
The story of the name change goes something like this... I had decided to get a puppy but not tell my parents because they did not want any more pets in the house. So the first day home, my dad was really upset about me bringing home a puppy and said I had to give her back. As you may have guessed, I became really sad after he told me this. However, with a little help from my mommy, the next day dad said I could keep her if I changed her name to Pimienta. Of course I agreed. He said she was a cutie and the color of pepper. All I was thinking was that this was a MAJOR DEAL FOR ME! So there you have it, the story of how Foxy became known as my little Pippa :)

Now Pippa is home with me and loving every second of it (in my opinion of course). The first day she was shaking out of fear but she slowing started to walk around and explore more. That day she met her cousins--my sister's pets--Toffey the big brown dog, Missey the tuxedo cat, and Fudge the black cat (in age order). Toffey is so laid back that having another animal in the house did not bother him at all. He just responded with a few sniffs and moved on. The cats on the other hand... those are a different story. They approach Pippa sooooo slowly... a step closer with every sniff. Tomorrow will be Pippa's one week anniversary at our house and the cats still do not fully accept her, even though they aren't as jumpy anymore. 
The first night was not as bad as I thought or as bad as I was told it would be. At first I thought that she would be crying all night, but to my surprise she slept all night. She began crying early in the morning, I believe she needed to use the potty (this is what I call the outside area where I take her to pee-pee and poop).  

Now, I think it is safe to say that she feels very comfortable in her home :)

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.

1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.

2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 

3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy

4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
