Yellow Owl Workshop products are the definition of whimsical and fun, and the same can be said about their party kits. You all know I plan parties and even though it's on a much smaller scale now, when I do plan them, I think about everything.

A Belated Happy New Year!

It's been forever since I've blogged, and we've since moved to our new house and spent our first Christmas and New year here. It's still a work in progress, but we love it and love that we know we made the right decision picking (what hopefully is) is our forever home because let's face it, moving sucks so much I don't want to ever do it again. I've already made a pact with friends to stop me from moving (whatever the cost). Yes, I hate it that much. So ofcourse, our house is still filled with boxes and our walls are still bare.

Origami Lampshade

Not only are these paper origami lampshades contemporary and eye-catching in shape and design, the colors are beautiful too. Geometric shapes with their clean lines are big in the design world, but they're usually more costly. Creating that look with paper origami is a great design alternative. These chic lampshades by Studio Snowpuppe would dress up any room or nursery. Take your pick!

Quiet Please!

Almost all of my mommy friends, have, at some point or another, put up a hand-written paper sign on their door that said something like "baby sleeping, please do not ring the door bell". The paper was either printer paper or a page torn out of a notebook, written with whatever pen they had lying around and taped to the outside of their front door. Ain't nothin' wrong with that! We're mama's and we don't have time, that's sometimes the best we can put together.

House that is. And it's crunch time! Everything is a little overwhelming right now. It's a dream to design/decorate our home, but I never paid attention to so much detail! Every nook and niche requires attention. So I'm apologizing ahead of time for putting off blogging for a little while. I feel like the little girl in the picture, full of wonder, fascinated, loving the moment but also scared and astounded. You'll hear all about it once we settle down. Thank you for your patience! :)

The weather is getting cooler, the wind is more crisp, the leaves are turning color and the little guy has been jumping on the dried leaves on the ground. Fall has definitely arrived here in California. We've made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch (pictures coming soon!). It's the best time of the year! Driving by several pumpkin patches everyday, seeing all the fall colors everywhere. The smells, the holiday treats and even the special starbucks coffee (although anything pumpkin flavored sounds weird to me, I've never even had pumpkin pie).

Milestone: Dropping The Last Nap

It was a bitter sweet day. Part of me wanted to keep the last nap for as long as I possibly could because it was so nice to have that break in the middle of the day. I catch up on some work, answer some emails and even take naps myself. And I always wondered how I would be able to tell if the time came to give up that last nap, but it was loud and clear this time around and I know we made the right decision.

Introducing: My Nephew Micah!

I've been gone all last week, and a crazy, hectic and wonderful last week it was. My little sister went into labor ten days early, and after an almost 36 hour labor (it's crazy, I know!!) and some superstar pushing (the nurse and doctor kept praising), my nephew Micah was born on Monday October 14th @ 10:13am. At 7 lbs 11 ounces, 20 inches, it's a good thing he came when he did! We were all surprised by how big he was hehe It was a once in a lifetime experience to be there throughout the labor, and I can't even describe how wonderful it was to meet Micah as soon as he entered the world.

Baby Tooth Chart

I feel like a bad mommy now that I've seen this cute baby tooth chart. I have no idea when little dude's teeth emerged. I mean I knew at the time, but I didn't write it down. Man!! Why didn't I find this sooner? I think it's such a fun way to record your baby's growth. So for all of you out there who have newborns (or an itty bitty baby who hasn't grown teeth yet), make sure you save this!
