Decorating my home with Photowall
I love being able to fix up my home. I’ve been adding decorative items lately like recently when Sebastian started school, I created a command center in a central area of my home so we can all see what is going on and not miss any important events. I’ve also been framing and putting up pictures of the kids. For me, this is the easiest way to spruce up your home and make it feel more cozy space without investing thousands in a total redo. So when I was recently approached by Photowall.com, it seemed like a no brainer to me to have something printed up for the home.
Madison’s First Birthday
Madison’s first birthday passed and I wanted to share a few memorable moments.
I decided to do a mermaid themed party. Since her birthday is in the middle of summer, a mermaid themed party seems to go hand in hand with summer. Before her party, I took the kids to the beach and did a little photo shoot so that I could have a nice picture of her that I could use at her party and that I could also hang on the wall as a memory of her first birthday.
Hurricane Evacuation Cruise
The kids and I have been on our hurricane Evacuation cruise ship for three days. It has been pretty nice for us but had taken some adjustments on all our parts. Friday (day 1) was a bit of a crazy day. Since this is a very special sailing with mostly Royal Caribbean employees and some back-to-back sailing customers, the main concern during check-in was to get everyone onboard and get out before the weather got bad. That means that actually getting our room assignment was chaos. We were given a paper, handwritten boarding pass and it was left up to the ships guest services to get everyone their room keys and room assignments. This process took all day and being alone with two kids 4 and under, trying to explain to them that we have to wait for our room keys for hours on end, in a huge long line, was not a fun experience. Once that was settled everything went a lot smoother.
Today I am Leaving my House
My heart is breaking. Today I am leaving my house with my 2 kids and I don’t know when I will come back or what I’ll come back to, if anything. I know that’s a bit pessimistic and some might say dramatic, but anything is possible when it comes to a storm of this magnitude.
I am a Miami native. I was born here and I’ve lived here basically my entire life. I survived Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when I was 16 years old. My area did not get hit as hard as the Homestead area did but there was still a lot of damage in my neighborhood.
First Day of School
There has been so much going on around here that I just have not been able to blog. Caring for 2 kids is no joke and they have consumed all of my time. I live by the “my children come …
I Let My 3-year-old Son Wear a Dress
Today, I let my 3-year-old son wear a dress in public and I have no problem with that. I decided to take both kids to Cool de Sac to play since my husband was away on a business trip. It was …
I absolutely abhor how badly I have abandoned my blog but life has been non-stop for me! I didn’t think adding a child to our family would be this hectic. I knew it would be busy to a point, but I didn’t realize that taking care of two kids under 4 would require everything from me every moment of every day to the point that I don’t even have time to write my thoughts down. So now here I am trying to play catch-up with everything.
Fall Fun Family Activities
This past weekend my family went to our local pumpkin Patch for a little fun. The Coconut Grove annual Pumpkin Patch festival always has a bunch of activities and fun for kids along with the ability to purchase and decorate your pumpkin, along with decorating a scarecrow, carnival rides and food. They also have a corn maze and an area where you can take your fall pictures of the family and kids.
Things could have gone very wrong: Maternal Mortality
I have been watching the show Masters of Sex since the very beginning because they base the show on the work of Masters and Johnson, who, like Kinsey, were sex researchers. My major in Women’s Studies led me to read …
