Valentine's Day

Today is the day of Love. Whether you spend it with your significant other, your family, or your best friend, just showing your appreciation and love for that person is something to celebrate.

Today will be shunning social networking and focus on things more important to me. Hopefully this will mean more designing and being creative.

Mardi Gras...

Fat Tuesday...the day before Lent. The day where everyone gets a little wild and indulges in their vices. The day before sacrifice for 40 days. Are you participating today? Any fun plans?

Starting tomorrow I will be giving up Social Networking. I need to focus more on being in the moment, really connecting with people, and focusing more on my family. I feel as if social networking has crippled those things in its wake. I hope this sacrifice will help me become a better person, a better wife, a better mother, a better friend. So forgive me for my absence, it will be hard but I'm looking forward to the challenge. I'll see you on Easter!!!

Birthday Weekend

This past weekend my little family went to Seattle for the day. We walked around Pikes Place, finally tasted some Beecher's famous Mac N Cheese, got a lavender cupcake at Cupcake Royale, then did a little shopping at Sephora and Nordstrom before heading back home to put my party dress on and go out with the girls. This week will be a continuation of my birthday celebrating along with Valentine's Day.

Lets hope this week goes a little more smoothly than last week, child sickness and work stress was killing me!

Happy Monday everyone!

Birthday Inspiration

I am hugely obsessed with birthdays. I love surprises, and of course, who doesn't love all the attention?! Here are some of my favorite birthday inspired images I found on Pinterest.

My favorite memories from past birthdays was my family coming in and waking me up the morning of my birthday, bringing me Starbucks and breakfast in bed, then opening all my presents. Later that day we would go out to dinner at my favorite restaurant and I'd blow the candles out on a fabulous cake (usually a pink champagne cake from Madonna Inn.)

This is my first birthday spent with my husband, so I am excited to start new traditions and spend the day with him and Riley.

What do you love most about birthdays?

The past two days I've been home with my poor sick baby girl. Ever since we moved up here to Washington and out her in a larger daycare facility, she had gotten sick at least 7 times. I've missed a total of 4 days of work unpaid. Needless to say, this has been a burden. I just want my healthy baby back! I want to be able to catch up on bills instead of falling behind. In lieu of all this, do yourself and your family a favor and keep up on vitamins, and sleep, and make healthy choices. I know I've been lacking in these, and Riley has been no exception to these.

I am thankful for my own health, and my husband's as well. While fevers and colds aren't the worst case scenarios (which have been on going for Riley) they still are not to be taken lightly. Hoping to find some solutions today at the doctors appointment.

Stay healthy!

Super Bowl Sunday

This past weekend, my husband and I decided to throw a Super Bowl potluck party at our house and invite some close friends. We had all sorts of good food, and had a great time watching the game and Beyonce killing it at halftime. Riley even danced along. Hope you had a great weekend!
