Executing my pins

Lately I am obsessed with pinning anything and everything on Pinterest!  Healthy meals, arts and crafts, decorating tips and tricks, and weekend warrior projects.

I get so excited when I attempt and successfully make or do something.

I've made so many meals from the recipes I get off of Pinterest. Healthy recipes are endless.  

Last night I made this power protein quinoa salad. 

I've been finding plenty of inspiration for redoing our offife/playroom. 
Not to mention all of the holiday decorating ideas, gifts and little tips and tricks. 

Happy pinning!

Spring 2015

Spring to me means so many things, flowers, dresses, allergies, Easter and lots of days at the park with my little family!

I love when the weather changes; the trees turn green and flowers are in full bloom. 

Peonies have always been my favorite flower. I've always taken Gianna to the farmers market with me on Saturdays to grab fresh flowers for the house.  Once in a while on our walks alone the Americans river we pick a few wild flowers together for her room.

I love you Gianna and I love you even more Alexis Maurtua

Art Therapy

I was first introduced to the idea of coloring a few years ago, I was told it would help with my anxiety and relieve stress. To my surprise it worked, I would get lost in coloring for hours.  

This past Christmas, Santa picked me up a few new books. I've been filling the pages with color on my lunches and carry one in my purse. 

Amazon has a great selection and with Prime it's free 2 day shipping! 

Gianna is really into coloring right now too. So, we have mommy and me coloring books!

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I'm a sucker for pink, hearts and chocolate! 

Between Gianna and Alexis I feel loved everyday. But this Valentine's Day I felt extra loved! 

Gianna and I had a mommy and me date at Ettore's. 

Alexis and I got Gianna a little puppy purse and filled it up with goodies.  

My attempt at being crafty and romantic...

Alexis spoils me with loyalty and love everyday  but... I sure do love my new arm candy! I've been eye spying that MK watch for months! I love you Alexis Maurtua 

The three of us planted flowers in the back yard, had lunch outside and took naps before heading to a romantic dinner at Banderas. (My favorite). The evening ended with a massage, and counting my blessing for how lucky I am to be with a man that loves Gianna and I so very much.

Getting organized

While on the hunt on a planner, I came across a Lilly Pulitzer agenda. It's so bright and colorful. 

The minute it came in, I had to fill it with colorful entries!  The pages are so large I can keep track of everything; what I eat, exercise, work stuff and what I'm spending my money on.  

Happy planning to me!

Happy New Year

We are officials two weeks into the new year! 

This year I didn't make any crazy resolutions.  Only promised myself to be a better version of me. I know my own weakness and strengths. 

I'm going to try and slow down and enjoy all the moments that God has blessed me with!  

A friend sent me this on New Years and I love it!

First Blog Post

I'm not sure how this all works... But I guess I should give it a try. 

A little about me: I'm the mommy to an amazing little girl who was sent from heaven above. I love God, my family & friends, I believe everything happens for a reason (good & bad). Date nights are the best but so is renting a DVD & cooking at home. I could eat sushi & pasta everyday.  Cooking is one of my favorite things, hosting dinners & brunch is a weekly at my house. I'm old fashion & super girly. Camping & hiking was recently introduced to me & I instantly fell in love with the scenery not to mention a killer workout!  I never lie, cheat or break a promise.  I have an amazing job that I love & worked very hard to get. My girlfriends are like my sisters & so I have new brother in laws & a ton of nieces & nephews. My little family keeps getting bigger! Not going to pretend I'm into sports, for me they're better in person with a beer in hand, he watches Sunday football & I run errands.  Music is essential my playlist is completely random. Singing & dancing around my house or in my car is a must!  I'm serious & silly at the same time. It's sometimes hard for me to say how I feel.  I believe in second chances just not everyone deserves them. 

I think I will be blogging about anything & everything on here.
