Hi everyone and welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2014! My name is Xiomara and my husband's family owns Parkesdale Market. We have two little girls who are very energetic, and have developed quite an interesting sense of humor. Together we are trying to figure it all out.
This is my first time participating in the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 minutes for mom. The purpose of the Ultimate Blog Party is to meet other bloggers who might be of interest to you. So here's a little bit about me.
I was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and I moved to Florida when I was in High School. After High School, I attended the University of Florida in Gainesville. Yay, Go Gators! So excited to see the Basketball team make it to the Final Four. At the University of Florida, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Natural Resources and Conservation. If you ever wondered why I love plants, and being outside, this would be why.
After UF, I moved to South Florida, where I met my husband. While I was there, I attended the Florida Atlantic University and I earned a Master's degree in Geology. Yeah, rocks are not just for jocks, you know. It was quite a shock going from a big university to a smaller one, but I'm happy to say the professors, students and facilities were top notch. Go Owls!
Now my schedule is full with the girls' activities and trying to keep fit. It's busy for sure but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I use this blog to keep accountability of my eating and running habits. You can also read about our family outings. You can follow me on twitter, instagram or pinterest! See you soon!
