Cinco de Mayo – Northwestern Style

Northwestern the hospital, that is. If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that last night, we were readmitted. That pesky placenta previa started acting up again, and the doctors are saying this time we’re most likely here for the long haul. We were admitted one night last week as well, so I’ve pretty much exhausted my “get out of jail free” cards.

We spent the day getting settled back in to our home sweet hospital room on the antepartum floor. Even though we are a little bummed to be back in confinement this early, we couldn’t let Cinco de Mayo pass without any celebration. So tonight, we picked the most culturally appropriate items on our in-house cafeteria menu… (yes, including the mac n’ cheese…if you know my husband at all you’ll understand!)


It’s certainly not glamorous living, but like most everything, it is what you make of it. So, we’ll celebrate our little girls – who, after all, have their own Hispanic heritage!

With Grace,
