Feliz martes a todos.!! Happy Tuesday everyone.!! I apologize that I have been so scattered with my posts the last two weeks. My father has been in ICU for 13 days and some days were pretty bad. I haven’t wanted to write about it because I was hoping for him to turn a corner first and it seems he finally has done that.! We’re still waiting for him to wake up so we can communicate with him. But the worst seems to be over. Ojalá.!

I’ve also been dealing with the loss of someone who I thought cared about me immensely. It’s funny how certain life events (my father’s sickness in this instance) can crystallize a relationship for you in a matter of moments. I went from thinking I was going to build a life with this person to never wanting to see them again. What’s even worse is now they’re blaming me for the demise of our “relationship”. I’m using air quotes because at this point…I don’t even believe there was anything between us. Who abandons you when you need them the most.?!

Anyway…shoulder shrug.. Next.!! Próxima.!! This week’s Corona commercial is called message in a bottle. And honestly the way my last two weeks have been going – it’s been like waiting for a message in a bottle. Long, emotional (wet), and no end point in sight. From waiting for my dad to awaken physically to waiting for this dunderhead to awaken emotionally…it’s been a long slog through hell. I just hope I’m as happy at the end as the guy seems to be at the end of this commercial. Maybe there’s a Corona within a Corona in my future too 🙂 Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo.!!! Happy May 5th.!!! Ok…I know it’s really May 6th.!! But I’ve been super busy.!!! For one, I was in Playa del Carmen last week.!! Yay.!! But, it was bittersweet. For the sweet part – I had so much fun and I saw great friends!! It was awesome to reconnect 🙂 On the bitter part – so much has changed and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I promise to dissect my visit over the next several posts (pictures included).!! Secondly, I came back home to a bunch of work…so just a little occupied.! Plus I posted an historical bit on Cinco de Mayo yesterday…so I had to post a fun post today.!!

This week’s Corona commercial does just that.! It celebrates Cinco de Mayo and continues our theme of ‘find your beach’. Even after several years, the beach in Playa still makes me smile 🙂 There’s something to be said for relaxing in that clear, clear, blue water of the Caribbean while the puffy clouds float above your head in the azure sky. It’s enough to put you in a blissful head space.! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz lunes a todos.!! Happy Monday everyone.!! I hope everyone was able to start off the new week well rested and refreshed from their weekend festivities.! I know I was 🙂 There was just enough rest – sleeping in late because of the rain – and activity – workouts, friends, and family – to make the weekend lovely.! Now if I could only get some hunky guy to bring me coffee in bed that would be perfect.! jajaja

Speaking of perfect, how perfect would it be to party on a beach where you can watch the sunset and moonrise within moments of each other.?!! Wherever this place is….someone please let me know.! Apparently, our partygoers in this week’s Corona commercial have found the spot and they are keeping it a secret.!! Hmmmmm…..maybe the Most Interesting Man in the World knows.! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz martes.!! Happy Tuesday.!! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week.! Mine is super busy.!! But what else is new.?! jajaja… My weekend was a little boring because I wasn’t feeling well. But I’m feeling better and hoping to make it up with mega plans for the rest of the week and the weekend.!

But really I’ve mostly been thinking about vacations. I really think I’m in desperate need of getting away…to a beach…with a cerveza in my hand 🙂 This week’s Corona commercial is made for all of us looking to get away. I’m sure we have all thought about doing this to our cell phones or work phones many many times.!! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz martes.!! Happy Tuesday.!! The weather in Chicago just keeps getting better and better. While it may be partly cloudy, it’s not raining.! Or snowing for that matter. Plus it’s a balmy 50 degrees 🙂 And yet, I keep thinking about faraway places and beautiful beaches. I feel restless. I’m ready for a vacation I think.!

But before that can happen, we need to check out this week’s Corona commercial. I know it’s a little too early for football season, but not for these guys. And as much as men like women, it appears they like women with beer even more.!! jajajaja…. Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz lunes.!! Happy Monday.!! I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter.! Or Passover.! Or just a wonderful weekend.! My weekend was a rollercoaster ride, but as the saying goes “sometimes you’re on top of the wheel of fortune and sometimes you’re getting smooshed by it.” Or something like that. jajaja… Needless to say, even with the great weather in Chicago, I was thinking about warmer climes. There’s something about being on vacation that no amount of rest and relaxation at home can match.

It just puts you in a different mind frame. For example, in this week’s Dos Equis’ commercial, the guys are on vacation. And one particular “guy toy” gets utilized in a manner that would have started a fight back home. But here, on vacation, it brings a toast.! Because on vacation everyone is just more chill, you know.! Have a great week everyone.! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz lunes.!! Happy Monday.!! I’m super happy today because it’s 60 degrees in Chicago.! That’s practically bathing suit weather around here 🙂 My weekend was also phenomenal. I had drinks on Saturday night with a really good friend. It was a bar I had never been to so that was a fun experience. Even having been born and raised in Chicago, you can still find a new bar to like.! Or an old bar in this case, as it has one of the oldest liquor licenses in Chicago.!!! I also put in a killer workout on Sunday in preparation for bathing suit weather.! But I have to tell you…I’m a little sore today. Lol… So I guess that means it worked 🙂

Speaking of bars and bathing suit weather, in this week’s Corona commercial, we have more people looking for their beach. Sometimes in life, your beach can be a lake or even a pool because you can’t always make it to the ocean.! So in that spirit, I hope everyone finds their own personal beach this week.! And that fantastic weather finds us all. Have a great week. Enjoy.! Y salud.!!
