Hello friends Happy February! The month of love! Who all still goes out for Valentine’s Day? I haven’t in years but I think me and the hubby are going to this year, so cool it is on a Friday.
Today’s post since it’s the month of love, I thought how fitting is it to dedicate my first post to my first born. He is the reason my heart grew bigger.
My David, he just had his 16th birthday. Imagine 16 years as a mom, I remember the day I went into labor with him. He was my little big guy, a whole 6lbs 11oz but long, I knew he was going to be big, he had the biggest hands and his feet were too big for his newborn pajama. I had to always cut the bottoms. He was my gentle giant. And now he’s 16 a young man that has this beautiful heart. He’s so caring and loving with everyone. I know he has a bright future. But this year he will hopefully get his license and maybe get a summer job, lol! No but really He has his written text very soon. It’s crazy!
I’m so proud of him. And I can’t wait to see him grow more as a person. He has brought so much joy to my heart for 16 years. So Happy sweet 16 my baby.
Moms out there that might be worried about having a second baby because you feel you can’t love anyone as much as you do your first, don’t be scared. Your heart is capable of amazing things. You love them just as much and your heart grows fonder every year they grow. The heart is an amazing thing and gets bigger with the more people we allow in.
Hello Ladies! How are you all doing? I can’t believe we are done with January. Time is flying! February is always a fun month! We have super bowl, My older sons Birthday and who doesn’t love Valentine’s day! My older son is turning 15 on Saturday, I can’t believe it. He’s getting so big. He’s chill so he wants a chill hang out with his buddies. But if you know me I can’t not do some what of a theme, Lol! Nothing crazy because he will not be happy, but just enough. I’ll share next week what we did! Maybe give others ideas for a teenage boys birthday. So stay tuned!
Ok so for today I wanted to share some cute items I found over at target and the 99 cent store. I had so much fun looking at all the valentine’s day decor. If you need some treats for kids classes or if you’re having a kids Valentine’s day party head over to 99 cent store. They had tons of cute stuff for kids. from treat boxes, head bands and hanging hearts. Besides Valentine cards, I’ll be making cupcakes for Breakers class. I found a cute treat box and cupcake toppers for only $.99 you can’t beat that.
The hubby and I don’t do Valentines day gifts. It’s just something we don’t do. I’ll give the boys a small treat and I prefer goodies, like cookies or donuts. So we always do something like that. I’ll make a fun dinner and set up the table fun for all of us. I figured until the boys are off doing their own thing, It’s a family affair, lol! So if you’re in the same boat as I am, I have a fun pizza recipe here! I usually make this with heart-shaped pepperoni or if I’m up to it I’ll try to form the dough in a heart! Fun and the boys like it. But as long as the Hubs walks in with donuts!
I do love to give Breaker’s teachers a fun gift. I mean they are handling our little ones all day. They are the real MVP’s, so I love to give them a treat. This is what I put together for them this year. He has 2 teachers so I did these cute baskets for them. I also shared another idea for a co-worker or just a special gal pal in your life. Most of these items are from Target. Check out the dollar section they have the heart chocolates and the heart-shaped plates. I love how target has these mini prosecco bottles. For the teachers gifts I found everything at Target in the Valentine section. I bought the baskets and oven holders at the 99 cent store. They came 2 in a package for both items. I thought this was fun so they can share with their families.
So ladies run before this stuff sells out! Hope this helped with some Valentine Ideas! Till next post!
Hello beauties! Hope you all are having a great week so far! So who else is slowly getting into their fitness goals?! It’s been a struggle the last couple of days to stay on track. Sometimes Motherhood is exhausting, I don’t even want to work out. I’ve been pushing myself everyday to do a workout. Even if it’s just 10 minutes. I’ve been obsessed with The fitness Marshall on YouTube. It’s basically 3-4 minute dance workouts. Take a look and try them out! I’m also super excited, I have some fun blog post coming up. Cute outfit inspo for Valentine’s Day, some cute spring looks and more. I’m also going to have a fun pizza recipe that takes 30 minutes to prep and bake. The kids love it! So please if you’re not already subscribed please do so! And thank you for stopping over on Stylesencillo.
So let’s get started, LOL! My little one says this all the time. Today’s post is pretty much a vision of what the hubby and I would love our year to be like as a couple. Sometimes with life, work, kids our relationship gets put on the back burner. And that can create some tension. For the most part we are pretty good together handling everything around the house and with the kids. I do stay home for my kids. I’m very fortunate, that I can do so. He is at work full-time Monday through Friday. Most of our free time is to be as a family. And that is one thing that is very important. But after 4 years ( since Breakers birth) I’m ready to re-kindle our relationship. We did vision boards on what our goals are for a healthy year as a couple.
My vision of a healthy year together would be to communicate. Which I found a phrase that said “Be completely honest about your desires” I think this is truly important. We as parents are so exhausted. I think being honest about needing a Break or even some sexy time. It’s ok to say it, I have a problem where I feel he can read my mind. I need to be better at expressing myself for what my needs are. Another phrase I liked was MOVE FORWARD, focus on what’s ahead not what’s behind us. I would also like more PASSION. He might kill me for saying this, LOL. But I love kissing and touching before sexy time and he has a joke that he tells me about that. He knows what it is. But I would love more passion. It never gets old. I would also like more Date nights. I love to hear music and Dance. He loves music it’s one of the things we love together. So for sure more date nights. My last one I will talk about is the phrase HIT REFRESH, and I’ll admit I don’t think he gets that much of this one. I’ve made it a point to go shopping alone, nails done, or whatever I have planned for me. I think time apart alone is also good. We all need to Refresh. He is already so good about this one, He encourages me to get out and enjoy me time. So this year I hope he does it also. It really does help. Sharing a little without giving all my dirty laundry out, LOL! So to conclude I would love for us to communicate honestly about needs, add some spice to life, plan more date nights and refresh! Parenting is hard and most important thing to good parenting is making sure Mom and Dad are in it together. Love you Babe! XO
His Vision Board was a little more Rated R, LOL! But we both have the same goal. Number one is to spend more time together alone. It’s difficult with kids, but it’s what we will work on. So hopefully more date nights this year. Hope you all enjoyed this short and personal post. Till next post!
