Baby makes 4!

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

It's been so long since I've blogged but I will be better about it . . . so to get back into the swing of things I decided to post some of our recent family/pregnancy photo shoot.  This year our Christmas card doubled as our pregnancy announcement.  Diana Simonetta took our photos and we could not have been happier.  She was so good at getting Niko to focus and look at the camera and she got really good shots of him.  I especially liked how efficient she was, the shoot took about an hour and she got so many good shots.  She's very professional and very nice and sweet.  I kept emailing her and she was so good at responding . . . during the Thanksgiving holiday! She was amazing.  She took our pictures at Hermann Park in late afternoon.  We were very happy with the finished product.

I am 20 weeks along and we feel very blessed and are so excited for Niko to have a little sibling!

On Me: For love & lemons lace maxi, Luau dress

Hair and make up: Me.  I actually had to do my make up in the car as I did not have enough time to get it done before closing, that was the same day we closed on our new house!
On Niko: eye chart big brother shirt (Etsy)

Pretty in pink

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Over the weekend my little boo and I went to his little friend's first birthday party.  It was so much fun and Niko was walking around everywhere.  He's sooo cute!  We decided to both wear pink since it was a little girl's first bday party.  Niko hates wearing shoes, hates it.  He wears socks everywhere or is barefoot.  He has a few pairs of shoes but refuses to wear them.  I can't imagine someone not loving shoes! I looooove shoes. 
I opted for a pink jumpsuit.  I love jumpsuits.  I had it tailored a bit.  Raised the hem and adjusted the back.  Since I am short and have a short torso the top portion of jumpsuits fit a little big.  I want to give a shout out to my tailor Nhu, she's awesome!!
It was a fun party and the food and treats were delicious.  We had a great time.  I hope everyone is enjoying their week!

I work every day, every single day.  On the weekends however I only work 4 hour days so that gives me the majority of the day to spend with my little family.  We felt a little homesick today since it was Easter and we didn't get to spend in in the DMV with my in laws but luckily we are going in two weeks for V's bday so we had our own version of Easter dinner at Niko Niko's.  We had so much fun, let's say that every day is a new adventure with our little Niko.  Last week he was scared of strangers at Nordstrom Rack but today he was making fast friends at the restaurant.  He's so cute and funny and his little mannerisms crack me up.  He's such a divo too! We had a good little dinner and we all wore white and blue, Greece colors.  All in all it was a good day and Niko ate his first pita today.  Hope everyone had a good Easter!

P.S. The Sangria at Niko Niko's is surprisingly delish!

Niko's first birthday

Sunday, March 22, 2015

I cannot believe our little man is 1! We had his birthday party at the Houston Zoo and although he cried for at least a good hour he ended up having a great time!

I bought most of our decor from Oriental Trading and his cake was made by El Bolillo bakery.

Hope you enjoy our pictures.

About last night

Sunday, January 18, 2015

My hubby left to DC today for 2 weeks!!! Two whole weeks without him . . .  is it bad to say I miss him already? It's true.  I miss him a lot . . .  mostly because he cooks and takes care of me, ha ha.  We decided to have date night on Friday.  We went to Ambrosia.  I absolutely loved it.  The citrus salmon and the samosas were divine, so were the Korean chicken wings and the papaya salad.  Everything we had was delicious.  Then we met friends at 13 celsius.  It was a night of great food, great friends and wine.  The rest of the weekend I spent working and hanging out with family.  This morning I went to hot yoga for the first time.  I really liked it.  I feel like I can finally breathe.  I never liked yoga before because not being able to breathe properly gave me anxiety, I found myself holding my breath too much but slowly I've been getting better.  Yoga One has $5 community yoga Sunday mornings 8-9 and weekdays from 12-1.  Hope everyone's weekend was fun!

New Year . . . New Me . . . New Clothes

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Happy new year everyone . . . 8 days later. With the start of every new year there's a new year resolution.  I don't think I've had a resolution in the last 4 years, probably because I didn't put any effort into thinking about what I wanted to change about myself or needed to work on. This year I've thought long and hard and I've decided that I want to be less judgmental. Not that I'm super judgey (not a word, I know) but I've decided to be less and just have an open mind all the time. It's so easy for me to get caught up on my idealist ways. I've also decided that I want to be less anxious.  I want to be relaxed and take it easy.  I want to take it day by day and not feel so overwhelmed. I love to work and I love being a mom and honestly none of those things brings me stress. I just find myself worrying about my mom a lot.  She's doing ok right now so I've decided to just enjoy this time. Be in the present.  I'm also going to try and be the best version of me everyday.  Do my best everyday. That's all I can try and achieve. Oh, and to accessorize more. I don't accessorize as much as I'd like. Oh and to lose weight. That's about it.

Oh and I want to dress better . . . that's it!!!  Here's my wishlist:

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour . . . Tres chic

Tom Ford Anoushka Sunglasses

Emilio Pucci Orchidee Show Scarf

Prada Suede Triple-Strap Wavy Sandal
