This past weekend we celebrate our little guy’s first birthday. It took a month of planning a preparing but we pulled it off. Even with the rain it was a great party, and our little guy had so much fun with all of his family and friends there to help him celebrate. Here are some money saving DYI from his Little Man’s First Birthday bash. You can follow me on Pinterest for more of my DIY party inspirations. Below are some links to where I found instructions to all my DIY crafts I did for his birthday.
I can’t believe it’s already a year since we had our baby shower and now in a couple of days we will be having Jayden’s first birthday party. Time sure does fly. I wanted to share some pictures of our beautiful Nautical baby shower we had last year. Our family and friends did a great job throwing us our shower.
This New Year I’ve made some resolutions to become a happier healthier me. Being a mom has made me realize how important my health and well being is. I know with my little kiddo getting more and more active everyday, I want to make sure I am in the best shape to keep up with him. It was a challenge for me to learn how to balance being a mother, a wife, and my own personal life. Blogging, starting a photography business, working part time, and trying to juggle all my other roles consumed me, and I had no time for my fitness. I needed to make a change and ditch some bad habits that were holding me back from reaching my goals. So here are my top 10 habits to ditch for the New Year for a healthy and happier you.
I’m loving this colder weather we are finally having down here in Houston! This New Year has been nothing but GO, GO, GO for this mama. In less than 2 weeks my little man will be turning one and I’ve been so busy preparing for his party. This year one of my new year’s resolution is to become better in the kitchen, so with the help of Pinterest I will be making his birthday cake and several other goodies for his birthday.
I can’t believe it’s already 2016. 2015 flew by and I couldn’t be more thankful for all the blessing we received. It was a year of ups and downs, but overall I wouldn’t change it one bit because through all life’s challenges I have grown so much and become a better person because of it. This year I became a mom. We welcomed our wonderful son Jayden into the world on January 19, 2015. I never knew how much I could love something until he came into this world. It scared me how much I loved him, I would die for him. protect him with all my being, and I would go to the moon and back just to give him the world. He was my inspiration this year, and because of him I became a better blogger. Because of him I was able to step back from my full time career to focus on being a mother and it also allowed me to pursue blogging. I’ve blogged about being a mother, fitness, fashion, and photography. So if you have followed along or have just started here are my favorite posts of the year.
With all the crazy wet weather we’ve been having lately, rain boots have become a must have in everyone’s wardrobe lately. But do you really have to sacrifice fashion for practicality, or pay an arm and a leg for fashionable rain boots? Look no more, here are my top rain boots that are fashionable, practical, and budget friendly.
This week I got the pleasure to feature my beautiful friend and fellow momma photographer Amber Beach. Amber and I met when we both worked at Buckle. We both had a passion for fashion, and we also shared the same passion for photography. Amber has been there from the beginning helping me through my first year as a professional photographer. She is one of the hardest working momma’s I know. I love our mommy photographer play dates where we get to have fun practicing our skills with our favorite models, our children. Check out my interview below with this beautiful momma!
