Hi. Hello. I’m back lol

We’ve had a fun couple weekends since the birthday madness has been over. The weekend after the party was over my aunt and uncle went camping at Crystal Cove in Laguna Beach, and they invited us out to the beach for the day. As soon as we found out Mando didn’t work that Saturday we said we were in. We didn’t go to the beach all summer cause of his schedule so I’m glad we got this trip in, it’s such a pretty beach. 

This past weekend we took the boys to the pumpkin patch. Jake couldn’t do much because he’s STILL being stubborn and not walking πŸ™„ plus all the jumpers and rides were for the bigger kids. But he still enjoys being out and about so it was fun for everyone. 

I’m a little frustrated right now because Nathan is on a waiting list for preschool through our city’s school district and it’s just taking forever. I’m starting to get nervous that he’s not gonna get any time to get used to being in a classroom setting before he has to start kindergarten. And I’m also starting to get really scared that he’s going to fall behind educationally. Before having Jake I was able to work with him on things a little more but now, not so much. And I feel super guilty about it. I’m really going to start trying to set aside more time to do it and look into what preschool curriculums include, get some worksheets printed and really start on this with him. These past few weeks we’ve done a few Halloween arts and crafts that he did really really well with. I cut out all the pieces for him while he’s napping, that way when he wakes up we have something fun to work on.


I went to Michael’s this morning and picked up a few things to start a couple different projects. I’m super excited about this. I don’t want to post too much about it yet, maybe in a few weeks I’ll post a few pictures and get into it a little more.

I can say that I sold all of the Mickey Mouse decorations that I made for Jake’s party and it felt so good. I love making this stuff and I get a lot of compliments on it, so to sell everything I made, it just felt really really good. 

Jake is on this new level of maturity lately. It’s like since he’s a big bad 1 year old now he’s a whole new kid, he doesn’t seem so much like a baby anymore. Nathan on the other hand is really testing out his attitude. Besides that I’m really proud of him because he’s been doing really well in karate, he got his tiger yellow belt a few weeks ago, and his kicks and punches are getting a lot better.

I’ve been eating like crap for the past week, my grandparents came out for Jake’s party and we had to hit all their favorite spots, + the party goodies, and now I’m left with all this goodie bag candy and I have zero self control. I’ve stepped up my workouts a bit but you know they say you can’t outwork a bad diet, so I guess I need to get my ass in line and stop eating this shit 😫 it’s ok cause I’ve just about picked out all of the chocolate and that’s all I really want πŸ˜‚

It’s bath time here in my house so check in tomorrow, maybe I’ll remember to update. Hopefully. ✌🏼


The party madness is over.

Our big boy is 1, and we threw him the cutest little party. I’m so so happy with the way everything turned out. The decorations I made, my sister in law got so many cute things for the party, the piΓ±ata, the cutest, tastiest caramel apples, my aunt made the cutest cake and cupcakes, and just all the help we had from family setting it all up. I got more pictures than usual, so here they come. πŸ˜‰

I didn’t get any pictures of the banners hung, the center pieces on the table, or the food table but I’m just so happy that I even got any. Now that the party and Jake’s birthday is all said and done hopefully I’ll be posting more. ✌🏼
