Christmas Favorites

Now that the girls have had a few days to play with what ''Santa'' left them, it's clearly easy to  tell what are their favorites. One of the most requested items was the Crayola marker maker. Hailey played with it the first day and I haven't seen it ever since. However these were the few items that are constantly being used. 

American girl doll and doll tutu set.

Brain Quest Smart game!

This Balloon game is AWESOME for family game night.

Valco Baby Princess pram. 

Bringing a little Paris to Florida

Silver Hunter Boots

Ipads and the leap pad ultra.

One of my favorites as well the electric scooter. I must admit when I take Hailey outside I make her get off so I can ride it atleast once.  (lol)

There you go a few Christmas Favorites.

Christmas Eve 2013

Happy Christmas eve!

I must say this year has been my favorite Christmas eve yet. I must admit I couldn't find the ''perfect'' Christmas outfit for my girls therefore I decided to host a Pajama party. It couldn't have been more perfect. My cousin was spontaneously admitted to the hospital a few days prior and we were fortunate, she was released right on time for the holiday festivities. Instead of getting all glammed up we all dressed in comfy pajamas and played games. The game of the night was uno. Boy! did everyone have fun. I sat back and just watched how everyone was enjoying themselves and my heart skipped a beat. You could feel the genuine love of family and friends gathered around having nothing less than a perfect time. 


And of course the night is not completed with out the Secret Santa gift exchange!

It's finally here!

I cannot believe Mima has finally come to the US. About three years back my cousins wife and I saw a picture of Mima's Kobi stroller and fell in love. We searched high and low for the Kobi but there was no way we could get our hands on one. Now that Mima has finally come to US (Happy dance) I cannot wait to test it out and see if it functions as well as it looks. 

It is now available at Liapela and

Flair $1,070

Xari $1,200
* A second seat is also available.

Mama's in Papa's Armadillo stroller.

At some point we all desire a second stroller. It may be we need something for quick trips, traveling or something lighter and a little more practical. One stroller that i'm totally lusting over is the Mama's and Papa's Armadillo. Why I love the armadillo? Not only is is sleek and modern it has a one handed fold, it's extremely compact and it has large canopy and basket. The Armadillo weighs approx 17.6lbs and holds up to 50lbs.

Price: $279.99

Pumpkin patch 2013

Today we visited the pumpkin patch to be exact we went to three different ones. The first one was ridiculously full so we drove an extra fifteen minutes and found another one which was much calmer. The kids fed the animals, drank some smoothies and ran around for a bit then we headed to another much smaller patch where they chose pumpkins (which they are now carving) and took some pictures. After we went to Italy today for some brunch and of course I just had to stop by this little girl's boutique where they have lots of cute handmade clothing. Overall our day was just lovely, it was the perfect sunday!

Mommy: Target Peplum shirt, Old navy jeans, Michael Kors flats.
Hailey: Ted Baker top, Gap ponte pants, MK flats.
Leannah: Ted Baker top, Target leggings, Gap shoes.

Class Friend!

It was Leannahs turn to take home the class friend Princess. I was initially happy, i thought it was so cute until I found my self in the mall carrying around a build a bear named Princess. lol 
Over all it was cute to see how Leannah cared for the little bear she was so excited to document her weekend and share it with her friends.

Back to school!

I know i'm a little late on my Back to school post considering the girls started August 19th. They are both required to wear uniforms. My initial thought was uniforms, how boring? however it's less hassel in the mornings and I love that I always know what they are going to wear, so i spend my time choosing accessories because uniforms dont have to be boring. 

 Please excuse the Iphone pictures..

My Pre Schooler

When I first started this blog in 2010 Leannah was such a little bug. I remember my first post was about her favorite foods and such and now that same little baby is going to preschool soon she will off to Kindergarten and just like that, i have no baby left. This has been tough for me Hailey entered Pre-K when I was 8 weeks pregnant with Leannah and once I knew we were having another girl we had planned to do the same, as soon as Leannah was headed of to Pre-k we would give it a go for our last and final (hopefully boy) child. Due to schooling and wanting to accomplish some goals before adding another child to the crew, we have to wait. Bummer! So now i'll sit here and cry about not having an itty bitty baby to hold. 

Pre-School here she comes...

Shirt: Target's Disney line

Pool day!

A few weeks ago I took the girls swimming. We had such a lovely time soaking up the last bit of summer vacation. I've had this swim suit tucked away in the ''do not wear'' pile. I havent had the confidence to show much skin since 2009. I'm glad I took the risk i felt girly and confident.  

Cute pool attire on a budget!
