Summer Wrap Up 2012

Hey Cuties, I've fallen all the way off the wagon; I guess becoming a Mom of two really took a lot out of me. I don't mind, I enjoyed adjusting to having two kids. Everything my daughter does is new and exciting and I wanted to give her all of my attention. REAL LIFE IS HAPPENING! Let me catch you up on all the things we've been doing.  Here is a season in review...

A Nest for Nori Michelle

I've been meaning to write this blog since I was pregnant and decorating the nursery for my baby girl. Well life happened and my baby girl is now 6 months and I'm just getting to write this blog. There are several little things I still need to add but here goes. Inspiration for the room: I wanted bold colors because I'm not a fan of pastels.  My Babe didn't want a "pink princess palace" (my favorite color is hot pink). We both wanted a modern nursery that could easily be a toddler's room as well. I didn't want something all matchy-matchy and I wanted to utilize different prints and bring them all together. With those things in mind I set out to create the ideal world for our little girl.  I finally decided I wanted the colors to be grey white and yellow with splashes of hot pink.

2nd Annual Mother’s Day Tea

It is that time of year, the time that we honor our Mothers, Grandmother's, God Mother's and Mother figures. It is MOTHER'S DAY! It is my annual tradition to host a Tea Party. Last Year's Tea was a blast, while it was my first it turned out rather nicely. This year I had, even more, ideas on how to improve upon my tea party. There were a few things I wanted to incorporate this year but I had a lot going (I was taking swimming lesson) on and I didn't get to all the tiny details.  All of my guests enjoyed the setup and had a really good time. I can't wait to make it even better next year.

My 12 Days Before Christmas

12/13/10: On the 12th day before Christmas my true love gave to me... FRIENDSHIP! For some reason today I've been exceptionally emotional, which so isn't my thing. I chatted with my Godson's mother and wow. We've been friends for over 15 years.  We've grown together, apart, individually, and together again. We went from walking to the bus stop together every day in HS, to getting married around the same time, to moving around with our spouses, to now being settled in life and motherhood. We've evolved so much as individuals but have never lost our friendship. We are friends for life and that won't ever change. Friends are the sisters God forgot to give us.

DIY Costume “MimiMouse”

Hey Cuties,

I don't typically dress up for Halloween but this year my niece (5 years old) was having a Birthday Halloween Party. She requested everyone come dressed in costumes. I knew right away I wanted to go as Minnie Mouse but this also means I need a Mickey Mouse. We will get to that part later. In July of this year, we took our son to Disney World. You know, where the magic happens. While there I got some ears for myself and my son. You can't go without getting the ears.

Kindergarten Prep – Dental Visit

As we begin the early stages of getting ready for kindergarten I was on a mission to find the perfect dentist for my son. The other dentist was the only one in his practice and not available to my liking. My co-worker told me about her daughter's dentist. Neibauer Dental, I go online and I'm impressed right away. I see two Black doctors, two Asian doctors, a Middle Eastern doctor and few white doctors. My first thought it YES DIVERSITY!!! Then I see they are open seven days a week. WHO DOES THAT?!? I call the location of my choosing and the person on the other end was really friendly and had an available appointment within two days. SWEET!
