I decided to try out the Petti Romper Tutorial from Sew Like My Mom's blog before I start the real one for my daughter's birthday, which I want to make for her in the Daisy Duck colors, pink/purple/white.

I tried to make it in jean and white fabric that I had lying around and accessorized with some pearls to complete her outfit. She had fun modeling for the camera.

Isn't she just gorgeous? My baby is growing up so fast...she will soon be 3 years old.

Birthday Preparations

My Sani is going to be 3 years old on July 2nd. We are planning a birthday party for her and we're really excited to begin our preparations. 

I was thinking more along the lines of princess theme, but since she has a mind of her own she decided that she wanted her birthday party to be of Daisy Duck.The whole theme colors will be pink, white, and purple.

While looking around Etsy and Pinterest I found a few inspirational ideas for her party.

We're thinking of having some cupcakes to avoid the mess of actually cutting a cake with some pretty little bows to match the Daisy Bowtique theme.

We also liked this cake (the 2nd tier) but something a little smaller and personal just for taking pictures of her blowing out her candles.

I went to Wal-Mart and found some pink and purple ribbon to match the theme ... and now I am so excited because I want to see if I can sew her a little outfit for her special day.

Then it hit me...I came across this website, Sew Like My Mom, and found an outfit I want to make her. Not sure if I ever expressed my LOVE for rompers. Well if I haven't, then let me tell you that during the summer I am in LOVE with rompers. I think they are so cute, comfortable and help you stay very cool. Since Sani's birthday is in the summer and we're going with the whole bowtique theme, I was thinking of some type of bedazzled romper with long stranded pearls like the one on Sew Like My Mom's blog.

Isn't she just adorable? Not to mention her little outfit and pearls. 

What would go better with this romper than a pair of matching sandals like these?


I'm Back

This morning, my husband brought to my attention that I haven't blogged in a while. It was actually quite nice of him to notice. Otherwise, I would have never known that he actually read my blog.

So in honor of him I am back!

Funny thing is that when I first opened this thing he used to always say, "I don't know why you write so much if no one ever reads that." I swear he loves to test me!

I've been gone since about April. I became pretty sick and was unable to focus on anything. Luckily it's nothing too serious and I'm feeling a lot better and now I can enjoy things a lot more....like my babies.

This picture was taken by their aunt Annie, who took them to the movies to watch Madagascar 3. I have the best children in the world.

Last week I went shopping for shoes and meanwhile I am trying on shoes, guess who I found trying on shoes as well...yep, Sani! Isn't she such a girly girl?! I love it! She loves my jewelry and every morning when I am putting on my makeup to get ready for work she asks me to put some lipstick on her too.

Speaking of work, I had to go to a workshop in Key West, which I had never been. Seems like the closer you live to places, the less you visit. I wanted to share some pictures I took. All inspired by the hubby who requested I take some scenic photos. Here is what I came up with... 

A little seagull I saw when I arrived.


90 Miles to Cuba- Loved this view

Sunset from my hotel room.

Reminds me of Finding Nemo, "mine, mine, mine." LoL.

A pier.

A pier in the middle of the water. How do you get there!? ;)

A man walking the pier.

Ocean view...
Which one is your favorite?!

Well, that pretty much sums up my break away from Blogger. See you soon! :)
