Tsum Tsum Carnival 1st Birthday!

This theme was such a fun theme to work with. I've always loved Disney Tsum Tsums! I wanted a way to incorporate it into my son's 1st birthday party without it being girly, so I decided to do a fun carnival theme. The rich reds, turquoise, and yellows made it more carnival like and I love the variety of Tsum Tsum characters so every child was able to go home with their own character from popular Disney Characters to Marvel Characters. They have it all! Credits Below: Cake, Mini Cakes and Sugar Towers: There Should Always Be ... Read the Post

Holiday Home Decor 2016

Hello December! Today I'm sharing my Holiday Home Decor! To be honest my tree has been up since the first week of November :) I love to have my tree up for a long time. Christmas has become more awesome as the years go on, there are so many things also to decorate with compared to back in the days. I love all the cool holiday decor that is hitting the stores, did you guys get to see the rose colored decorations at Michaels?! Seriously, how beautiful! I loved that they had different themes to choose from at Michaels too, made it even more ... Read the Post

Donovan | Month Twelve

One year since you blessed me my sweet Donovan, and every day you seem to amaze me more with your happy attitude. You are honestly one of the best things that has happened to me and learning your personality brings joy to my heart. You are now walking without much help from anyone, you walk all around the house and love to get into things. You're 28lbs and 30.5 inches long, sometimes I feel so out of breath carrying you! You love to ask for food everytime someone is eating and are not picky eating! You love to make noise and scream all of a ... Read the Post

Donovan | Month Eleven

At eleven months I feel like your curiosity is on a whole other level. You love to get your hands on anything that's put in front of you and sometimes we have to act fast before you put it in your mouth. Why do babies like to put everything in their mouths?! It's so sweet to watch you standing on your own and trying to take a couple of steps. You're kind of lazy though and give up a too easily :) but I'm in no rush because I know eventually I will have to be chasing after you lol. You currently wear 12-18 months in clothing. You have 7 teeth ... Read the Post

Fall Bucket List

You guys it's in the 60s out in NYC and I couldn't be happier! Seriously, fall is my favorite time of year, and I have been loving the beautiful leaves changing, and the pumpkin spice everything! The fact that orange is one of my favorite colors and fall is all about orange tones, just puts me in a great mood to be honest. This fall has been a busy time for me because my son Donovan turns one on the first of November, so I have been on crazy mode all of October planning his party. Although it's been pretty busy I still want to do a couple of ... Read the Post

Donovan | Month Ten

It hit me that in two months you will be one years old. How does the time go so fast. You are such a blessing and have really given me an interesting month. This month you are beyond curious, i feel like you act like a toddler already. You are grabbing everything you can get your hands on and putting it in your mouth. You officially have mastered crawling and almost walking. You will walk holding on to everything near you, everyone says you will be walking by next month and I believe it. You're 26 lbs and still wear 12-18 months although I ... Read the Post

Donovan | Month Nine

At month nine you are such a curious little boy, you are into touching everything and unfortunately I now have to start baby proofing the house. I love seeing you look around the home curious touching everything though, even when i try to trick you in hiding the items, you know exactly where it is and will fight till you get it back. Pretty funny actually how smart you are. Right now you are really into playing with the xbox remote. You love how the button lights up. I sometimes have to trick you by taking out the batteries but you get ... Read the Post

Life Lately | Ending of Summer

Im so happy fall is here! It's my favorite time of the year. I know I've been missing in action lately, I really miss it around here too but life has been a little off lately. We lost my father in law and we were going through a difficult time in the summer. We finally got into our everyday routine again and I'm looking forward to posting more around here. I need to catch up on Donovan's monthly series, more for me than for my readers, I wanted to have a monthly update on his growth and milestones. Lately he has been walking around but ...

Donovan | Month Eight

My sweet little boy you've been super active lately, I have been trying to keep up with you. I can't believe eight months have come and gone and you're already babbling away, standing up, and semi crawling. At eight months you like eating solid foods regularly, and boy do you love it. You love food much more than breast milk (which breaks my heart), and you're growing teeth pretty quickly, you have four bottom teeth already and more apparently are coming out because you keep fussing with your gums and biting me, poor little guy. At the ... Read the Post
