Meet my Baby!

This very hot afternoon Jesse and I took a trip to an ultrasound clinic.  We have both wanted to know the sex of the baby as soon as we found out we were expecting. Of course, that was impossible 13 weeks ago but now that I’m almost 21 weeks we are now 200% sure of the baby’s sex. A lot of you were right on the money and so was I. 
So guess what?! ………..
It’s a BOY!!!!!
(Jesse and my Dad are BEYOND happy since Jesse really wanted a boy and my Dad had all girls so me having this boy is what he always wanted. Grandpa is going to spoil my little Izek, I already know).
The doctor did a 3D ultrasound at our request because we wanted to see in as much detail our lovely little baby.  As soon as the doctor started the ultrasound and I mean -as soon as- she said it was a boy.  There were no second guesses.
 During the whole time, baby Izek (Jesse and I fell in love with that name) was jumping, moving, kicking, and dancing (pretty much). The doctor said he’s wild one haha. The baby looked great, had every little toe and every little finger in place. I feel like I am the luckiest woman in this planet right now. I am so thankful that God gave me Izek. I can’t wait to hold him in my arms for the first time.
I know a lot of you though I wanted a girl because of all the girly things I do but when you’re expecting all you want is a healthy baby. I had such a strong gut feeling it was going to be a boy, so I started treating my belly as if that was the case and look at me now, with a little boy in my tummy. 
We are still trying to find a middle name for the baby. Something to roll off your tongue easily when you pronounce Izek (I love the way it’s spelled)
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my baby pictures because I certainly go through our ultrasound DVD  like water in the dessert.
Thank  you so much for all the comments on Twitter and Facebook about my pregnancy, I feel so lucky to have all of this support from all of you. It feels great to know you guys are just as excited as I am.  I will start pregnancy videos on youtube, I already have one lined up. If you guys have any request please let me know.

Love,
Dulce Candy

How to make Tacos al Pastor

My favorite Mexican dish ever and believe me when I say this.  Last night I decided to surprise Jesse with a lovely dinner since he was in school ALL day. Plus, I get to eat my favorite tacos. This is my number one choice of dish every time we go out to eat to a Mexican restaurant.  They are so full of flavor and if you’ve never had them I think you will love them too. 
Enjoy!
Lets begin….

* After sauce has simmered for 5 minutes remove from heat and add meat (marinate for at least 30 minutes).
*Heat up 2 small tortillas per taco
*Add green or red salsa and horseradish 
Answering a few questions:
-I used bouillon not cumin but you can use either or.
-Jenny- (you seemed so hyped girl, loved it!) The blurring of the camera is from my lens and a few setting change in my camera :)
-After you simmer the sauce for 5 minutes, remove from heat and add meat. This is when you want to marinate the meat for at least 30 minutes). Then you sauté  the onions until tender and this is when you add the meat so it can cook. I left it on low heat and covered for 45 minutes.
By the way, I AM SO SO HAPPY you guys loved this recipe. I’m so motivated to make more for you so you can see what delicious dishes I make at home.

The Canon 5D Mark II came home to me yesterday, unexpectedly. I will rant about
this camera on my next post because I am selling my other camera which is the
Canon 50D with a 2 year warranty. Just the body, no lens. I know a few of
you were interested on getting it from me, but I will move forward with the offers
once I have all the complete details and I post them on my blog. So anyway, Jesse
and I went out today to get few test shots with the new camera. We are still trying 
to get used to the settings so I hope you don’t mind. Now I’m off to watch a video
on how to work this Mark II…..
