Baby Shower

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

I was planning to show the photos from my baby shower
sooner but with all the hoopla of Christmas and
New Years I just ran out of time.
Anyways, I thought now it would be ok to share
 them now with you guys
(better late than never, right?).

I had the baby shower a couple of weeks
just before Christmas because Ian was due
the beginning of January. Everything was
done in such a rush but eventually everything
came together and looked great. I just didn't have Ian's name
on the cake because we didn't decide on a name
until he was born.

It was a small gathering,
I think I invited about 10-15 people.
I didn't do a baby registry since I already had
everything for the Ian's arrival,
so I only asked for diapers.
It was a sweet and fun time with
friends and family.

And here's photos of Sophia's baby shower
since I didn't show them before.
I can't believe that it has been almost 2 years since my
first baby shower, time sure flies.

I had plenty of time to organize and arrange
Sophia's baby shower. My sister-in-law
did most of the work and she helped quite
a lot. I absolutely loved all the decorations
and how everything looked.
How cute is the diaper cake?

baby shower at Catch My Party.

Love in Action

Monday, February 20, 2012

Starting my Monday and week on the right note.
Romans 12:9-21
Be blessed everyone!

 Love must be sincere.
Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 
Be devoted to one another in love.
 Honor one another above yourselves. 
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 
Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Live in harmony with one another.
Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.
Do not be conceited.
 Do not repay anyone evil for evil.
Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Do not take revenge, my dear friends,
but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 
On the contrary:
   “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
   if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

yet meaningful.

3. Get creative with your cupcakes.

4. I love to make breakfast and these pancakes
are super cute.

5. Let the crafter in you be free,
make a card for your loved one from scratch.

6. I love this idea! Tree of Hearts, so easy to make.

7. I love, love, love the conversation hearts.
I have them every year.

Another thing that I love to do during Valentine's day
is to watch romantic comedies. We all have our favorites

How Not To Go Crazy...

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

How not to go crazy, that's what I've being
trying to do for the last couple of days.
Taking care of my kids, trying to manage my house
 and do chores at the same time without going
completely nuts.
I've somehow managed and synchronized
my every minute with the clock. 
I've broken down every chore
that needs to be done with the weekdays,
I do a load of laundry every other day
so it doesn't built up and lately the
dishwasher has become my best friend
(I may sound a little crazy but it's true).

Taking care of two kids under the age of two,
 breastfeeding every 3 hours,
preparing meals, changing diapers
have taken a toll on my energy level,
I feel tired most days and look
forward to my kids' nap time
because that's when I relax and nap too.

How I manage not to go crazy?
 I still find joy in what I do in the midst
of all the busy things and craziness.
I love my kids! seeing them smile,
all the laughter and all the love
I have for them makes everything
worth it.

The craziness shall pass soon,
my sleepless nights should end soon,
and someday I'll look back and miss these times
because eventually my kids will grow up too soon.
So, I must find joy in all things
and cherish all the memories no
matter how tired I am.
