1. I mean we all know that food themes are the best! Pretzels in all their twistiness and golden-brown-ness are one of the most popular food items, and for good reason. They just look so... GOOD. I love how simple yet eye-catching this pretzel themed party is. You know, all it takes are pretzels. (image above via Minted)

Gender Reveal Party

I remember when we found out whether we were having a boy or a girl, I lay on the hospital bed in a dark room and the ultra-sound technician was trying to keep the mood light by making jokes and being sarcastic. He made a random comment about the baby before we found out the gender, and in his sentence he said the word "HE" and I didn't let that go. I was like "you said he! you said he!" and he tried to cover it up. We were very very excited when we found out we were having a boy.

Our Life Photographed: London & Paris Trip

We are finally home from our trip to Europe!!! Not that it wasn't a fun trip, but S and I stayed a little too long, we actually ran out of things to do. And you know how it is after traveling for a while, you just want to come home, sleep in your own bed and eat some home-cooked meals. We decided to make a trip to London and Paris this summer because my dad (S's grandpa) is staying in London for a few months for work purposes. Naturally, we took advantange of that situation! It was my husband's first time in Europe ever! And S's too ofcourse.

I heard about goat tours at Harley Goat Farms and immediately booked three spots for my family. It's crazy how quickly the spots fill up, so I picked a random weekend a month ago and just went with it. Fast forward to this past weekend when it was finally time to visit the farm. We learnt about the history of the farm, hung out with the mother goats and llamas (who protect the goats from predators) and the baby goats (who chewed on everything that was loose/dangling like string on our jackets and shoe-laces).

UnTangled

I don't have a little girl so I haven't had to deal with this problem, but many of my friends have. The problem being: their daughters wake up with tangled hair every morning and it's a pain to have to untangle it! I mean, I've watched them brush their little girl's hair and it's so... unpleasant. It looks painful and it takes such a long time to get it all untangled. And once it is finally done, I swear it looks like it could get all tangled up within minutes.

10 Summer Acitivities

For a lot of schools, summer break begins at the end of this week! The kids are jumping around and cheering, but the grown ups have been racking their brains since after Christmas trying to come up with summer entertainment ideas for their offspring (lol). Trust me, I'm new to this whole process, so imagine my shock when other mommies asked me what camps we're signing up for or where we were traveling to when it was still freezing cold outside. I had no answers, and I had no idea the planning started so early!

Reading Made Fun

As we approach the start of kindergarten, we're working more on our reading skills. But reading words off a piece of paper isn't fun, and S isn't really motivated to read easy books either (unlike some of his friends who read as a hobby). He always wants me to read to him. So I try to make reading fun to encourage him to read more. We started out with words then moved on to phrases. And with each, I try to create new games to make learning exciting. Last week, I decided to make this book.

Mother's Day Mini Gift Guide - Part I

I swear, women go out and literally can buy one or more things when they shop even though they don't really "need" anything. So naturally I've always thought buying a gift for women would be an easy task because they're easily tickled, they like everything. Right? But then every year right before mother's day - blank (my brain that is). I have no idea what to get my mother, my mother-in-law, my sister and (if I finally succeed with the first three) my close mommy friends.

Project: TreeLess TreeHouse

Our little boy LOVES playing outside. Zoos, amusement parks or even Disneyland are great, but his favorite place to go is still the park. On special occasions, when we ask him what he wants to do, what his perfect day would involve, he would always say "I want to go to the park!". Kind of anti-climatatic but also great. Just shows how simple and innocent children really are. They don't need much to be happy.
