Happy Easter!!!

Today was such a great day, spent with family we don't get to see really often!

I asked my boyfriend to drive so I could do some cross stitch while enjoying my large iced cappuccino! Livia had her 1st egg hunt and it was a real success! She was so excited & expressive, it was a real pleasure to witness! :)

Here are some bits & pieces of our day!

On the road...
Getting ready for her 1st egg hunt
Sooooo many goodies!
She loves bubbles!
Our homemade Easter cupcakes!
And here's a little extra...
I just created a Vimeo account & I'm still figuring it out...but I thought it would be fun to share a 1st video with your guys! :)

 Hope you had a great Easter!

Talk to you soon!

A day off work with my little bird

7:00 - Woke up to see a little birdie standing by my bedroom door with her new stuffed bunny (she's   in the Easter spirit!)
7:15 - Shower time for both of us! Goodbye bed heads!
7:40 - We sat down to have breakfast (although Livia gave almost half of hers to the dog!)
9:00 - We left to run some errands. On our list:
  • Stop by a cute chocolate shop to buy some Easter treats for the cousins
  • Stop by my favorite eco-conscious shop for some natural teething drops (yes, Livia is teething again! :(  Molars!)
  • Find some Spring accessories for Livia as the weather is starting to warm up...this little person is growing up so fast, her Fall accessories are not fitting her we need jersey hats, little gloves & a pair of booties....(and I ended up finding some little Spring ankle boots for myself! ;)
  • Final little stop at the grocery store because the fridge is pretty empty!
Let me tell you, running errands for  about 3-4 hours on your own with a toddler while being pregnant... it's quite a challenge! I was exhausted! And she was too apparently! ;)
She fell asleep about 5 minutes before we came back home! Typical!
12:30 - We finally came back home and ate lunch

1:00 - My boyfriend comes back from work telling me we might have friends over for dinner...Okay....That wasn't planned....Better get moving & clean up the house a little! :\
2:00 - Nap time for the little one...
3:15 - She's still not sleeping & ripped off 3 pages of her favorite book?!?! What the...?!?!
4:00 - We made chocolate mousse

Sneaky girl...waiting for me to turn around to steal come chocolate!
Simple chocolate mousse, 3 ingredients: Chocolate, eggs & sugar

5:00 - The boys decided to make themselves killer burger...but I on the other hand had another I decided to make myself ( & Livia) a killer mac n' cheese ! :) (Thanks Jamie Oliver for all your awesome recipes!)
5:30 - The mac n' cheese is now in the oven so I can rest a little while the boys are entertaining the little one (which is really a good thing because she has SOOOOOOO much energy for someone who almost didn't nap!)
6:45 - Dinner was so good!
Jamie Oliver's killer mac n' cheese with a side of bruschetta

7:00 - Time to paint Livia's toes! Light pink...with extra glitter this time! She loves it!
7:30 - My little bird is getting pretty tired...Time to cuddle up in my bed to watch some cartoons while she drinks her milk and then, off to sleep.

It's now 8:00pm, the boys are watching a 3D movie, my baby's fast asleep and I just feel like making myself a latte and go to sleep early! This mama is really tired! Really! Tomorrow I need to dedicate as much time as possible to custom I better get a good night of sleep!

Hope you all had a great Friday!
What have you been up to?

Is March almost over?!?!...For real?

Ok, this is really bad!
I just can't believe I haven't written a single blog post in over a month! WHAT?!?!
Seems like we were in February, then I blinked and poof! April is already around the corner!
This is simply unbelievable! And it seems that with this 2nd pregnancy, time is passing by even faster!

So today, I thought I could at least take a few minutes to write a little blog post & share a few pictures of our weekend with you guys! So here I am, on the couch with my laptop while Livia is watching Winnie the Pooh!

My weekend started with a girl's night out! Felt so good! Here's my almost 18weeks late night bump...after eating this amazing molten cake which, according to my receipt, was apparently a cake for 2! Haha!
Finished one of my latest custom order! I love making baby keepsake!
Livia is a real clown, always making funny faces to make us laugh!
Adding felt food to my Etsy shop has been on my mind lately...
Livia trying the lovely crayons that our new pen pals sent us! (I'll tell you more about "happy mail" in an upcoming blog post...meanwhile, you can visit Tara's blog and meet her lovely daughter ) 
Since we received our 1st happy mail about a week ago, we started preparing ours...heading to Colorado soon! :)
A Saturday morning trip to the Post Office with a purse full of custom orders!
A few weeks ago, I've added crayon rolls to my shop...this weekend, I wanted to do a little prototype for crayon roll party favors! How do you like them?
Ahhhh...NAPS! I've been quite busy lately, but whenever I can, I try to rest a little while Livia is napping!
I should really get the juicer out more often! Carrots & apples is our favorite...Livia almost drank the whole glass all by herself! Good thing she likes it! I won't complain!
Pregnant lady's lunch! ;) Sooooooo hungry!

That's it, time for me to go...Livia just pushed the laptop of me to sit on my laps to watch the cartoons! How can I say no to that! :)
 Hope you all had a great weekend!
I seriously need to drop by more often...
Talk to you soon! ;)
