Chic by Loren at Trendy Tots

I just wanted to share some exciting news! Just recently I signed a contract with Trendy Tots down at the Riverwoods Shops in Provo, UT. This boutique sells the cutest stuff for babies and toddlers and now they're selling my hats there! Everything happened so fast and it's been keeping me really busy but I love it! These are some of the designs I made for their winter collection.

Celebrating Hispanic Traditions - Dia de los Difuntos

Dia de los Difuntos is a holiday celebrated in areas such as Central and South America and since I have family visiting from Ecuador we decided to celebrate it. (Any excuse to get together and have a party. Right?)November 2 is the official date for Day of the Dead, although it is celebrated between October 31st and November 2. In Ecuador is a tradition to make home-made bread in the shape of dolls and a yummy berry drink called "colada morada" that can be served hot or cold. My aunt Lucy brought some of the spices to make the drink all the way from Ecuador, and she made it this past weekend for us and it was really tasty. PJ loved it! I don't have pictures of him drinking it to prove it but you'll just have to take my word for it. PJ hopes that one day I become a great cook just like all the women in my family. I'm really trying...I promise. :)

Bye-Bye Halloween

These are some pictures of our busy Halloween day yesterday. Alex got lots of candy on his first time trick-or-treating. The candy is actually almost gone thanks to his dad who so kindly is trying to help him eat it before it goes bad.

I took Alex to PJ's work in the morning and later we took him to the mall. He loved it because he was the only Handy Manny there. Later, we went to Grandma's where he got to eat some of his candy with his cousins Caleb, Kaitlyn, Joshua and Eli.
