4th Birthday Party!

Ahoy mateys! This past weekend was S's 4th birthday. His birthday was on sunday but we had the birthday party on saturday. I say this every year, and will probably say it for the rest of my life, but I can't believe he's 4 already!!! The party was a great success, but I have to admit that the planning process (i.e. the two days before the party) was rather stressful. We're still settling down in the new house, it's neither fully furnished nor fully decorated, but we were getting ready to have 20 guests in the house (and that was me trying to keep it as small as possible).

I Say: Leggings For All!

If you ask me, I'd tell you without a doubt, that babies look the cutest in little baby leggings. They should just wear them everyday. It shows off that fluffy diaper butt, it's comfortable to move in and sleep in and they come in the most adorable prints. I know that they're a little more feminine and that once little boys become toddlers leggings aren't the most appropriate thing. Otherwise, trust me, my little dude would be wearing leggings all day long! I want a little girl just so I can have a giant legging collection.

Box Play

A little while ago, we came across these eco-friendly recycling craft stickers for repurposing boxes, cartons and tubes while we were shopping and we thought it was such a fun idea. They are by Box Play for Kids. Our kids love playing with none-toys and making them toys anyway (S was fascinated with milk cartons, toilet paper rolls and egg cartons and he collected them in his play kitchen), so to turn them into actual toys is plain and simple - smart.

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).
