Happy 10 months.

I am not believe my little man will be a year in just two months. Happy 10 months my sweet boy. 


I didn't believe this phrase until he was born. 

"The days are long but the years are short." 

It's time to really start planning his party. I would love for some ideas! If you see anything to go with out theme of "into the woods" let me know!! 


I would love some  tips on what makes a successful party. What you wish you had given  more attention to or what you stressed over and in the end wish you hadn't. 
This is my first party to plan!

I need you


I need you just as much as you need me

You are my shopping buddy, my lunch pal and the reason my camera doesn't collect dust

You remind me to laugh and how to love unconditionally. 
You are always around to make me smile

You bring out the best in me

I strive to be a better mom, a better friend and better listener because of you. 
You may be little but you are already impacting me greatly

My hair needs washing and there is a pile of dirty dishes in the sink but when I'm with you none of that matters.




I never know something this small would impact me so much. I can't remember life without him. Do you have anything that means this much to you? A certain person?

Currently

Happy Monday! Today I am linking up with Becky at Choose Happy  for her Currently post.



Loving... I joined a new group of Local photographers. I am loving their encouragement and their talent. It is so fun to be a part of a group of moms that have the same interest.




Thankful... A few minutes to catch up on blogging. My little one keeps me so busy.



Counting down... To the summer. I am so ready for it to be summer. We are hopefully taking a vacation this year!



Organizing... Our house and garage. We have lived in our house for almost two years and I finally am ready to decorate. My dad told my husband he could have his pool table. My husband is so excited so he is making space for it in the garage.



Watching... I am letting Netflix run in the background while I blog. I have been watching Rules of engagement.



Celebrating.... We celebrated our first Valentines day with our little man. My husband is not a huge fan of valentines day but we did have fun with the little one this year.


Eating... Tacos. I love when my husband doesn't have to go into work too early because he makes or buys us breakfast.


What are you currently up to?

Spinach muffins

I am always trying to find new ways to sneak vegetables in my foods without tasting them. I was so excited to try Popeye muffins from the green fork   My son loves everything so I decided to give these spinach muffins a try. 
They are amazing and you wouldn't even know they have a whole bag of spinach. I'm very much like a kid the color is more enticing to me. 

My body is excited with the extra nutrients. 

Check out the original post here.

Pinterest

Interest has its way of making me feel like the worst mom, wife and cook all within 5 minutes of browsing. I am a Pinterest addict. That does not mean I ever try to recreate but I just pin and wish I had the time. I browse through the cooking section and tell myself "wouldn't that be amazing for dinner?" I then proceed to make spaghetti. (our go to meal)

I find myself looking in the kid section more than the women's fashion section because lets face it as a mom my kid comes before my lack of style.

I am not a huge valentines day enthusiast. I am not like my parents crazy neighbors that have inflatable hearts in their front yard. For one I did not even know the sold those?!
I am however all for looking Pinterest for valentines ideas for my little man. He was invited to a valentines party with his baby friends. I was so excited to find an easy healthier option for the little valentines.


Aren't these just the cutest? What is one thing you have recreated inspired by Pinterest? I may have to attempt it or at least repin it :)
