A Classic Christmas Moment

Julianna was a fan of Santa from a distance....

I probably shouldn't love these pictures as much as I do but i just can't help it! Nothing really quite says Merry Christmas like a crying Santa picture!

I Have a Confession...

Here it is my super exciting news....Julianna is going to be a BIG Sister!!!! I'm due April 25th! It has been SO hard keeping this amazing news a secret!  I now can tell you all that this is the real reason for my lack of blogging lately! I have been so sick I haven't even wanted to look at a computer. I am happy to say I have been feeling a little better lately and it is such a relief! We are so thrilled to be welcoming another little one into our family!!

So with my secret finally revealed I hope to get back on track with the blogging. I think I will start the weekly belly picture and quiz next week!

Hello October & Costume Sneak Peek!

Oh, wow! I guess this is becoming quite a theme with me -blog,break,blog,break! Shame! I really don't mean to go so long between posting but sometimes life just keeps me too busy or too tired to sit down and write anything of significance. I promise that will change shortly...I have an exciting post for Wednesday that you will not want to miss! ;)

Until then, here is a little sneak peek at Julianna's Halloween costume....

Her shoes! Any guesses on what you think she is going to be?

Little Sailor Girl

I had every intention of posting last week but yet somehow it just never happened! I got sick, had lots of errands to run and the Husband and I actually got to have a date night! It seemed like I blinked and the week was over. I seriously can't believe September is almost over and October is right around the corner!
Do you know what else is hard to believe? My baby is going to be 20 months next week! 2-0 yikes!!

Here are some pictures of Julianna  posing in her little sailor outfit from her Lita. She is certainly the cutest little sailor I have ever seen! :)

The New Ride!

Wow! I can't believe we are already 9 days into September. The summer just seemed to fly right by! And I can't believe it has been over 2 weeks since I last posted.. oops...I'm going to try and be consistent again! 

The Husband and I had been wanting to get a new car, we just weren't sure which one exactly so the last few months we have been test driving and researching our options & a few weeks ago we finally decided on this little beauty....

It's a Chevy Equinox LTZ. I LOVE it!! It gets great gas mileage and is way roomier than my old car        { an HHR}. 

It has all the nice features like leather seats, navigation and a push button lift gate {one of my favorite things!} And nothing beats that new car smell!!! Ahhh so nice! 

Oh, I almost forgot! I'm officially a quarter century old! That's right 25! My birthday was on the 4th and it was celebrated with a BBQ of course!  haha that kind of rhymes!

The A says...

I love teaching Julianna new things & she loves learning new things! We have been working on letter sounds and she has been doing a great job! This video was taken last week when she knew letters A-H since then Jules has learned 4 more! She has a little bit of trouble with the I & L. When I ask her what the I says she points to her eye! haha! And when I ask her what the L says she does this thing with her tongue trying to mimic the sound I make, it's pretty cute!  I'm a proud mommy! :)

Julianna says her sounds:A-H

A first:Vlog

After almost 2 years of blogging I finally decided to do my very first vlog! It took me a few tries and this was the best of them...a little distracted by Jules towards middle, oops!  Nothing too exciting, just an update! :)

Little Beach Angel

Splashing around with Lito

I love her! :)

Julianna is definitely a true California girl! She LOVES the beach!!

Hi Friends!

 Wow! It has been a couple weeks since I last posted and that is because we have been enjoying our summer! Every weekend this month is either filled with BBQ's or Birthday parties and our weekdays are filled with the beach, pool & parks! We are loving all of it!  The husband and I just got back from a few days in Vegas with friends. It was so nice to relax by the pool by day then get dressed up and dance the night away! Much needed mini vacation!

With all of the busyness it seems as though the months have gotten shorter. Julianna turned 17 months on June 28th, that came way too fast for me! I can't believe she will be 18 months in a few weeks! That means  I will have a baby who is one and a half!!! Insane!

My sister in-law is so sweet and always takes pictures of Jules and these are the most recent ones from a quick little photo sesh taken about 2 weeks ago.

We are off to the beach today! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! :)

My New Do...Again!

A couple weeks ago I finally decided to go for it and cut my hair "short".  Last summer I cut about 7 inches off and this time it was a little more than 4. You can't really tell from this picture but it is an A line cut, something I have been wanting to try for a while & I was pretty nervous beforehand but just decided to go for it anyway and I am so happy I did! I also lightened it up a bit for summer! I think I will keep it this way for a few months and then start trying to grow it out again when Fall comes around. I guess that's the beauty of hair, you can change it as often {or not} as you'd like! 

Sorry for the awkward picture. I took it using the photo booth on the computer and was trying to decide where to look! 

Oh, I also started using Pinterest. Soooo addicting! Come see my Pins and let's Pin together! :)

Happy Friday!

We're Back!

Hi there!! We had an amazing vacation. We were able to spend quality time with family and do a lot of touristy things! We were busy every single day & completely exhausted when it was all over. Jules did great on the plane {both ways, thankgoodness!} of course watching Yo Gabba Gabba & eating entirely too many puffs was extremely helpful during the 5 hours of air travel! 

Picture time!!! I am going to break up the picture posts, so I don't bore overwhelm you. :)

 First up the the shore, yes, THE Jersey Shore {Seaside Heights, aka. where Pauly D. & Snooki hang out when MTV is following them around}. Julianna had the best time running around and playing in the water. Even with the water being freezing cold she would have a fit when we took her out. We practically had the place to ourselves which made it a lot more enjoyable for us!

Hanging out on the boardwalk.

Julianna fist pumping & strutting her stuff in her onesie from the Shore Store. Gym.Tan.Nap. baby!! hahaha

Loving every second of exploring

Not loving leaving the water

Packing,Packing & More Packing

That is what I should be doing because we are leaving for NJ tomorrow but I just keep finding other things to do instead! I know I will be regretting it later! I have this weird thing where I mentally pack before I physically pack. I know everything that I am planning on  taking, now it is just a matter of actually putting everything into the suitcases.  Here's to hoping it is a fast & easy job for me! I'm also hoping to get some sleep tonight because we have to be out the door by 3:45 AM...ugh.

I doubt I will post this week {surprised?} but if I happen to, I guess it will be a nice little treat! 

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!

Guess Who's Back....

The Real Housewives of New Jersey: Jacqueline, Teresa, Caroline and two new housewives {who also happen to be related to Teresa} Kathy and Melissa! I am probably way more excited over their return than I should be but I just can't help it, these ladies are my favorite out of all the other housewives! They are one of my guilty pleasures and my DVR is already set to record the entire season...just to ensure that I don't miss any juicy moments of course!  Tonight's premiere is going to be 90 minutes and is supposed to be  extra drama filled. I'm hoping it won't disappoint!! 

Is anyone else excited like me or am I the only crazycakes out there?

Did you notice? The blog has a fabulous new look! It's bright,clean and so perfect!! My friend Becca over at Jumping Jax Designs is so talented, does AMAZING work and makes sure you are 1000% happy with every last detail! Becca did my last blog design, Julianna's Birthday invitation and my Etsy shop banner. I can't see myself ever going to anyone else for any of my future design needs. Seriously, Becca is the best!! I highly recommend heading over to JJD and checking out her incredible work!  

Thanks Becca! :)

Not The Most Flattering...

I know this isn't the most flattering picture of my baby girl but it is pretty funny! One day during lunch last week, Jules discovered that she had a hole in her nose AND that she could stick her finger in it & was completely fascinated! She thought it was the best thing ever until she discovered she had another hole in her nose that she could stick her finger in also! I didn't capture the two finger nose picking discovery because I was too busy laughing and of course she got a kick out of making mommy laugh and kept at it. Julianna is such a little ham!!  Don't worry, she didn't find anything up there and I made sure her hands were squeeky clean after this little photo op.  :) 

Also? My baby is 15 months old 15! Wow!  She has a doctor appointment tomorrow so I will try to get her update in sometime this week. Plans for today? Disneyland!!!
