Awee...I can relate to all those things you love (like Nutella! We have a huge bottle and go through 2-3 a month!) I guess only thing is that I don't have a Henrietta...haha :)

Alicia Padrón said...

2 to 3 a month?! lol.. my hips would grow huge if I do that. Not that I wouldn't love having it though. You must get a Henrietta. No life is complete without one. ;o)

Thanks for stopping by Linda!

Gina Perry said...

OMG - you are TOO cute Ali! Loved your little photo essay. I admit - I've NEVER tried nutella. Not sure why, I know I would love it. Bunny yoga cracked me up. :D

Nina Crittenden said...

I, too, laughed at the bunny yoga! This was a really cool way to share a little about yourself!

Alicia Padrón said...

Lol.. glad you like it! Ohhhh you are in for a treat! Nutella is heavenly.. once you try it there is not going back. Glad you liked Bunny Yoga!! ;o)

Shirley said...

OH my goodness! Alicia this is delightful! Thank you for sharing this with us...very cleverly photographed..love the bunny, but love your illustration even more. : )

Alicia Padrón said...

Hi Nina, didn't recognize you with this avatar. Guess I'm used to the cute dove from twitter!

Haha.. glad you liked bunny yoga, she is doing the downward facing dog pose. ;o)

Alicia Padrón said...

Aw thanks Shirley! That's my "to the beach" illustration. Pepito (he's the bunny on that one) gets carried away and brings everything he can think of with him. You never know when you might need them right? ;o)

This is just the sweetest thing! hahaha I too was laughing out loud at little bunny doing her yoga. Funny girl! And the earphones. How cute is that? Thanks, Ali, this was fun seeing your life through bunnie-kins!
PS What is the children's book she's reading? Looks beautifully illustrated.

Alicia Padrón said...

Thanks Rozzie!!

Oh the book is by one of my FAVORITE illustrators Christopher Denise, "Oliver finds his way"

Alicia, this just gave me the biggest smile of the day! The week even?! Such a clever, cute post and I love a lot of the same things. I see your long haired mini doxie in there, too!

Alicia Padrón said...

Oh I'm so happy to know my post made you smile that big! Yes, that's Lucy. I also have a whippet, Nina, but she was sleeping behind the sofa cushions and I didn't want to wake her. :o)

roz said...

Aha! Christopher Denise. Oh yes, I love his work and would love to buy myself a piece of his original work!! Any of the hedgehog ones for sure. =o))

Alicia Padrón said...

I know Rozzie! There's one of a mama hedgehog that stole my heart when I saw it. He is amazing!

Kelly Light said...
