Feliz Aniversario? #SpanishFriday

This week I'm participating in Spanish Friday, hosted by my good friend Tracy from Latinaish.  I know it's been awhile since I've blogged in Spanish, but I have a photo I've wanted to share since last year, and being that it's in Spanish I figured it would be perfect for Spanish Friday.  Don't read or speak Spanish?  Don't worry!  Just scroll down a bit for the English Translation. 

El martes próximo mi marido y yo celebraremos nuestro decimo noveno aniversario. (O sea, cumpliremos 19 años de casados.)  Tal vez esto suena mal, pero la verdad es que no tengo idea de como festejaremos tan grandioso día porque aun no hemos hecho planes.  Así somos mi marido y yo.  Siempre dejamos detalles como estas para el último momento.  Tampoco estoy segura de si intercambiaremos regalos o no, aparte del ramo de flores que me regala mi marido año tras año, porque ya nos las adelantamos varios regalos hace unas semanas.  

De lo único que si estoy segura es que mis hijos nos preparan un regalo especial.  Siempre lo hacen.  Los niños chiquitos, Jack y Ashley, siempre nos regalan dibujitos, dulces, y muchos besos y abrazos.  Nuestros hijos mayores (Hope y Nick) también nos regalan algo, pero muy a su estilo adolescente.  Aun no se me olvida el regalo del año pasado.  Era una tarjeta, supuestamente de felicitación, que hicieron especialmente para su padre. 


Por si no pueden ver la foto muy bien, algunas de las cosas tiernas y dulces que escribieron mis hijos fueron:

  • Día de luto para mi papa. 
  • Nuestro más sentido pésame.
  • Lo sentimos mucho. 
  • Suerte para la próxima. 

Que hijos tan adorables ¿verdad?  Lo bueno es que tengo muy buen sentido del humor y no cumplí con mi amenaza de castigarlos de por vida.  

Me pregunto, ¿que nos regalaran este año?

English Translation: 

Next week Hubby and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary.  I know this might sound bad, but I have no idea what we'll be doing to celebrate such a joyous occasion because we still haven't made any plans.  That's just how Hubby and I roll.  We always leave small details like these until the very last minute.  I'm not even sure if we're going to exchange gifts or not, aside from the bouquet of flowers Hubby gives me year after year, because we already gave each other early anniversary gifts a few weeks ago.

The only thing I am sure about is that the kiddies will make us something special.  The little kiddies, Jack and Ashley, always shower us with cute little drawings, candy, and lots of hugs and kisses.  Our older kiddies (Hope & Nick) also make us a gift, in their unique and special teenage way.  I still can't forget the gift they made us last year.  It was a greeting card, of sorts, made just for their father.

For those of you that don't read Spanish, some of the sweet things my adorable teenagers wrote were:

  • Day of mourning for my dad. 
  • Our deepest condolences.
  • We're very sorry.
  • Better luck next time.  
Adorable little kids, aren't they? The good thing is that I have a great sense of humor, and I didn't follow through on my threats to ground them for life.  

I wonder what they have in store for us this year. 


  1. Jajajaja!! Good thing you have a sense of humor. I wonder what they'll do this year - Hopefully something you can share. Wishing you and your husband an early feliz aniversario y muchos más!

    Where it seems an interesting coincidence that the day I write a post about Spanish words is the day I discover you've linked to me.

  11. Thank you very much, Judy! We had a lovely anniversary. How have you been?

  12. Hola Kim! Gracias por visitar mi blog. I really hope you don't mind that I added your blog to my Mexpat blogroll. I was just so happy to learn (on the Viva Veracruz blog) that you now had a blog of your own and wanted to include you on my blogroll so others could find your blog.
