Today was pretty low key for our family. It was extremely hot, but once things cooled down a bit (which is high 80s in Texas language) we let Reese play in the front yard for some outdoor playtime. She is so active and loves to run everywhere that it can be hard to take pictures of her, but I was… Continue reading
Should I be concerned that the majority of my blog posts lately have related to bodily functions such a poop? Nah, not really. It’s got to be a normal thing right? At any rate, this is my new normal – talking about poop, smelling poop, and even analyzing my toddler’s poop for whatever reasons. This is not for the… Continue reading
The sky was gloomy, the temperature was cool, and we were getting stir crazy in the house. It felt like a museum kind of day, so I called one of my friends and she gave us complimentary tickets to the Perot Museum. Even better! I knew it would probably be packed because it was a weekend, but again I… Continue reading
My lil Sunshine recently turned ONE and we had a blast celebrating her big birthday milestone. I choose the Sunshine theme for many reason: it’s cute, it’s a family tradition (my mom sang it to me all the time) and her birthday falls in the Summer. Here are some of the elements and craft ideas I came up with for… Continue reading
You’ve seen them on Pinterest - the cute DIY chalkboard birthday boards that parents take pictures of their kids with. I wanted to buy one, but quickly found out they are on the pricey side. Given the fact that all of my money is going towards diapers and formula right now – I decided to make… Continue reading
“The days are long, but the years are short.”
I heard this before I had a baby and didn’t really pay attention to it much.
Looking back on my baby’s first year – it makes perfect sense.
Some days were longer than ever. Some days, especially in the early months, I did not think I was cut… Continue reading
This is super late again. My baby is well past 11 months and we are about to celebrate her first birthday. This month has been super busy for this mom, but I wanted to share these photos of my ever growing baby girl. She was actually getting over a nasty sinus infection coupled with a diaper rash in these… Continue reading
When I have a spare moment (which is never) I am trying to branch out and try new things on my awesome Silhouette Cameo. I gave it a shot and came up with DIY Silhouette Cameo Address Labels inspired from a fellow blog named Unoriginal Mom (a super creative and awesome blog)! I made these… Continue reading
You never know what you will get when Influenster sends you an email saying you are eligible for the next vox box. It’s the one time as an adult that I am actually excited to run out and get the mail. Usually, it’s only bills and junk mail that I get in my mailbox.
This time Influenster focused on… Continue reading

We had a pretty non – eventful weekend that involved staying put and not going out of town. It was nice to chill and just hang around at the house with the family. We learned a few things about our kids (including our furbaby Dax) over the weekend:
A) Reese loves the swing her dad built. Dax does not because… Continue reading
If you would have told me pre-baby that I would be okay with floating turds, being peed on and picking runny noses, I would have told you that you are crazy and no way that would EVER happen to me. I am a refined lady, okay! (yeah right).
I write the words “poop” and “turds” a lot in… Continue reading
Slowly and surely I am trying to organize all the craft supplies that I have collected over the years. I am guilty for buying the same things over and over because I have no idea where I put it previously. I came up with a few craft room organization ideas below.
