Los Metiches

Married people problems

You know you’ve been married for quite a while when you start picking up on each other’s quirks, and then you start to poke fun at each other for all the craziness between you. No, pos quien sabe, in all honesty. We were just having fun with the video camera again, and this is what we captured. Esperamos que lo disfruten… and hey, if you’re interested in subscribing, here’s the channel where you can do that youtube.com/Juanofwords.

Puro pedo, puro wato… nomás shooting the breeze

Our latest vlog post is just as random of the last couple of videos we have shared. We kind of didn’t really land on a central topic… but we did cover a lot of stuff. And most importantly, I believe I established pretty clearly just how great I think Lucero is in general. Pues sí. So enjoy if you’re so inclined. And gracias!

When we go to el Súper… this happens

Nombre, pos la merita verdad, somos ¡bien canijos!  By that I mean me and Edgar.  Every time we go to the grocery store for our groceries, it’s like we’re just bouncing off the walls. It may be the magnitude of so many food options around us all at once, or the promising lure of sugars and sweets all over the place (we purposely don’t have a lot of those around at the house), or it could just be that we’re both bien traviesos. Whatever the case, the point is we can’t seem to BEHAVE!!

From arguing about different foods, exaggerating over new food items, and my personal favorite, sneaking one, or a couple, chocolate covered almonds from the huge container full of them, the big box stores are just like a theme park for these metiches.  Anyway, since we are actually intent on making more videos this year, I thought why not make a video of our antics… y bueno the rest is history!

We do hope you like the videos, and that if you haven’t already, you consider subscribing to our YouTube channel.


Old Time Texas Country Living

This weekend we finally did our Christmas shopping!  And, believe it or not, it wasn’t nearly as stressful as you might think, considering after all that we were shopping on the 22nd of December.  You see, rather than hitting the ginormous malls and department stores in the city, since a couple of years ago, we now always opt to drive out to the outskirts of Houston to do our shopping.

We like rural areas especially because they are less populated and offer almost all of the same big box stores, with fewer shoppers.  Not to mention their deals are always better.

That’s what we did this weekend.  Although not before taking a rather unexpected detour into Booth, Texas.  We were just driving down the road when we noticed the Old Trading Post.  It looked like something out of an old classic movie, and there was a certain charm to the sky that particular day so we decided to stop in.

We hesitated at the door for a bit before we finally decided to walk in and grab a barbecue bite to eat.  It’s always a little nerve-wrecking to walk in somewhere unexpected and new.  Once we chowed down though, it was well worth it!  The brisket was smoked just right, and the homemade potato fries and onion rings were delicious.  We also got a kick out of the art work on the wall.

It really was the little taste of peace and quiet we needed before heading in to accomplish all of our Christmas shopping in one day!





Reflections, Resolutions & Traditions for the New Year

This year has really been memorable one for us.  In so many ways.  I don’t even think I could explain it all appropriately, but as we’re nearing the end of this year and the beginning of 2014, we decided to share this video.  We talk about what made 2013 so special for both of us, together and individually; what we’re looking forward to in the New Year; and some of the crazy traditions we may be posting about as midnight on December 31st rolls around.

All I will say for now is that there are some red underwear involved, as well as a packed suitcase…. jajaja!  We hope you all enjoy this!  Reflections, Resolutions & Traditions for the New Year
