This Weekend, I... v. 7

Is it possible for a person to gain more than five pounds in just two days?  That's how I feel.

This weekend, I ate too many ripe mangoes. I also made mango float ref cake and ate too much, made some again and ate too much again.  If you'd like the recipe, click  here.

This weekend, I attended the christening of my nephew, Manuel Emilio.  It was a very nice and meaningful  ceremony.

That's my sister, holding the baby.  And that's my scalp there...hahaha!

It was followed by an expensive celebration at Chili's Greenhills.  There were 150 guests. Chili's had to close its doors to other customers  to give way to the party.

I actually ate too much, I had no more room for dinner.  I went to bed with my stomach not feeling so well.

So, that's pretty much how my weekend went.  How was yours?


  1. Wow! SO many people love that little baby, I love it! Looks like a blast!

    1. Yes, Sar. There were also a lot of baby showers for him. My sister and her husband waited for the baby for eight years so...

  2. Such a precious baby. People around me keep talking about Mangos lately!

  3. Such a darling baby loved by so many people! I love the pictures, and the gorgeous cake. That is so neat that Chili's closed down the restaurant for you guys!
