Café con Leslie: Catching Up w/ March

Cafe con Leslie: Catching Up w/ March - lacasadeleslie.com
For all my talk about wanting to blog more and do more in general, March just kind of got away from me. I started the month by taking a short break from working on the computer, catching up on housework, and just enjoying some quiet time with my family. Then halfway through the month, I started to put things off, telling myself I'd get back to them tomorrow (or sometime soon) only I never did. What can I say? Old habits are hard to break. But instead of beating myself up about it, I'm just going to dust myself off and try again. So...first things first. Let me catch you up on what we've been up to since my last blog post, which was way back on Valentine's Day.

*I finally finished that big work project I had been working on for months. Woo-hoo! I don't know how many details I can reveal about it, but it involved translating a book from English into Spanish. (I still have some final edits to make in the coming weeks.) Doing translation work like that had always been a dream of mine. (And continues to be.) And now that I'm done, I can't believe I actually did it. Like maybe it was all a dream. I am forever grateful for the opportunity. And I wouldn't mind doing it again.

*Translating an entire book from English to Spanish has inspired me to translate the recipes on my food blog and launch a Spanish-language food blog. I still have a ton of work to do before the website is ready to launch, but the first and most difficult part so far has been figuring out how to set-up a sub-domain. I still don't know how I managed to do it, but La Cocina de Leslie (en Español) is up and waiting for me to publish my first recipe.

*Graduation planning has commenced! Ashley will be graduating from Primaria (elementary school) at the end of the school year in July. The fact that the planning is almost complete comes as a complete surprise because from past experience planning doesn't usually start until May. The date has been set, the party venue chosen, and we've even picked a padrino (godfather): my architect nephew. So, now all that's left to do is wait for July 14th to get here.

*For the first time in the 13 years we've lived in Mexico, we went to the Guadalajara Zoo. It was my kiddies' first visit ever to a real zoo. We had an awesome time and loved everything about it. If you'd like to know more about the zoo, let me know in the comments and I'll write a post/review about our experience.

That's all I can think of right now. I'm sure I'll think of more stuff I should've included in this post as soon as I hit "publish". I leave you with this video of Jack & Nick singing "Golpes en el Corazon" at a family dinner earlier this month.
