Something I Thought I'd Never Say.....

"Please stop chewing on that bone, Julianna!"
Haha! At least it was a squeaky bone and not a rawhide one...ahhh, the little things!! :)
Happy Monday!

Viva Las Vegas!!

The Hubby and I are on our way to Vegas! Just the two of us! No Julianna! AHHH! I am excited to get away for a couple of days and have "us" time & at the same time nervous because this will be the first time we will be leaving Julianna for longer than our usual dinner and a movie. I know she will be OK. I know she will have tons of fun and be extra spoiled by her Lita & Lito(my parents)but my goodness, I am going to miss my Jules!!!

Hopefully I will have some fun pictures to share when we get back!!

Getting Crafty:Party Edition

The obsession has taken over...I am "officially" in full party planning mode & probably "officially" driving my husband insane with all of my crazycake bright ideas! I even bought a little notebook to write them down in so they are not forgotten. One of my perfectly sane party must-haves: Ribbon Topiaries! I saw some when I was perusing Etsy and fell in love with the idea as having them as centerpieces but when I saw the price...$38.00 (for 1!!!) I immediately  KNEW the hubby would have a heart attack if I even *thought* about actually buying them.Off to the land of Google I went to find out how to make them myself! 
When I learned how easy it was to make a topiary I got really excited because I'm not really the most savvy DIY person around! 
So after a  tutorial & one trip to Michaels later, this is the result.......

I know it isn't perfect(or finished) but it's a start!! I am still considering changing a few things around,like using a square pot and painting it white with pink and green polka dots instead. What do you think? Leave it the way it is or change it?

Oh, I don't think I ever mentioned what the theme of Julianna's party will be- Bright pink/green, ladybugs & polka dots. Not too original, I know but what can I say? I  heart it!!!  :)

9 Months!

Wow! Julianna is 9 months old and I am in shock... as usual. Shocked that another month has flown by, shocked that she will be in double digit months in 2 short weeks and shocked that her 1st birthday is only 78 days away!!!!! 

This is what's new with Jules:
  • 18.2lbs and 27.5 inches long
  • size 3 diapers
  • wearing 6 month clothes with a few random 3/6 thrown in.
  • cruising like a champ
  • can stand on her own.
  • loves waving
  • can high five-daddy taught her that...SO adorable
  • still TOOTHLESS!
  • deathly afraid of the vacuum & blow dyer...she starts screaming the moment they are on :(
  • loves "reading" her books
  • pretty much loves any food she is given. Definitely not picky!

I am happy to report that Julianna and I are feeling much better! We were both happy that daddy took such great care of us on his days off!

Sick Mommy +Sick Baby=No Fun

Julianna and I are both sick! Booo! The only thing I hate more than being sick is Jules being sick...her first cold. :( This would be part of the reason for my lack of blogging this week. So sorry.... I am hoping to get to her 9 month update this weekend. 9 months?!?! Oy vey!! 

P.S. The nasal aspirator a.k.a. the dreaded boogie sucker, did NOT make a friend in Julianna this week. Poor baby!

Hope everyone has a great healthy weekend!!
