yummy treat

A few Sundays ago, hubby knew I was exhausted and in dire need of a family date night.
So he took us to Target and then for some ice cream. It was so much fun and super yummy!

Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse

I think it's so cute how baby boy is in LOVE with Mickey Mouse. He comes and sits next to me and hand me the remote asking me for "Mouse, Mouse..." That's why I am so stoked to do his 2nd birthday with a Mickey theme. He is going to love it! I also decided to do cupcakes instead of a cake. What do you think? Baby boy goes nuts every time he sees a "upcake". lol I thought about making them myself. Lately we've had more of a taste for home made cakes/cupcakes over store bought. I found some cute cupcake toppers with Mickey Mouse on Etsy. I am so excited and can't wait!

Catching a Show

We took the boys to watch a show that was in town. It was so much fun! I can't belive how much fun they had. And I enjoyed watching them. lol

Little man barely blinked. And we had a hard time containing baby boy - he was on the edge of his seat! He kept jumping up and down full of excitement!

My boys watching the show.

Trying to hold baby boy down because he was about to jump out of our arms and onto the stage. lol

Monday Madness! Addi Bug Creations

It's that time of the year again, can you belive it? I can't! Baby boy will be turning 2 in June. WOW! What a bittersweet moment. I am so thankful he is growing up to be an amazing little boy and he is healthy and active. But it's hard to see my baby growing up. I no longer have babies in the house. lol

Can you guess the theme of baby boy's party this year? Come on, take a guess. lol

It's M.I.C.K.E.Y. M.O.U.S.E. lol This child loves Mickey and it's adorable. So it's only fitting that his party be a Mickey theme. When planning a party, the first and most important thing I look for is a personalized banner. I found the cutest Mickey banner on etsy of course! Addi Bug Creation made it for me and I love it! It is so well made and super adorable.

Check out her store here and you will see all the cute things she makes! She has all your party decoration needs! :)

art projects

Love these little hands! The boys both love to sit down and color. SO I printed some pictures for them to color. This was a train and it was a big hit! I just love sitting down and coloring with them. :)

Monday Madness! Burgundy Bow

It's not often I find a store on Etsy that has super cute stuff for boys AND girls. It's usually one or the other. BUT I found The Burgundy Bow and they have the CUTEST items for either a boy or girl. Their ties are amazing and they make the most adorable shoes for baby girls. I couldn't help but fall in love. lol

I got an adorable navy and yellow skirt with matching shoes for my niece. I was super impressed when I got it in the mail. Not only is it super cute, it is also so well made. My sister found a navy striped dress for my older niece at old Navy that will kind of match the skirt. So the girls will coordinate. I taught her well! lol
