Hi Everyone,

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A! Tony and I were on vacation and spent some wonderful time in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We stayed at the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort, in a private beachfront suite + let me just say, it was fabulous! Many margaritas were enjoyed! Then the day after we got back I spent the next two days in bed with like a stomach virus- ugh, the worst! Must of caught the bug in the plane on the way back, or it could’ve been the gross quickie lunch we picked up at the airport?
Anyway, its been hard to get back into the swing of things. My head is still in Mexico. I mean, can ya blame me? Did you see those pictures?!

This week I’ve also started planning Mason’s first birthday party! I CAN’T BELIEVE it’s right around the corner! My baby boy is growing up so fast…Both of my boys are! Ahhh, so sad.

Since he’s an August Summer baby, I’ve decided to plan a Pirate PArrrty! Not to be confused with Jake and the Neverland Pirates, but just a good old pirates theme. Anyone who knows me knows I like a good themed party. But even for the kiddies, I tend to do less cartoonish parties and do a little more ‘elegant-kiddy,’ if that makes sense. Hey, I’m taking advantage while I still have a say in what the themes are- haha! I found some really cute pirate inspiration on Pinterest, of course.

Check out this adorable pirate cake I found on Pinterest! It’s still fun, but less cartoon-y which I like. I already ordered his invitations. I found some great ones on Minted! If you haven’t ordered from Minted, check this website out because it’s great for finding announcements, invitations, Holiday cards and even some party decorations.

I will share with you more ideas + what I end up buying & even decorating ideas as the party nears.pirate-ship-cake

Last note:  I’m now on Snapchat- whaaaat! Username:  petalsandpumps.

Yup, I will be sharing some little snips of my life on there too! This is kinda a test for me to see if I would attempt on having my own YouTube channel one day…Who knows! What do you think?   Add me if you have an account. Thanks!

Ok, that’s it for now…

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! Not gonna lie, this week has me tired. We started building our pool in the backyard this week. And Mason (10 months), who is usually a good sleeper, has been waking up at the crack of dawn – what the f***?! Nothing a good eye concealer can’t fix though!

Anyway, my week was filled with the usual mommy stuff – laundry, errands, cooking, and running after my boys. But I also squeezed in some time for the gym, and a MUCH NEEDED manicure and pedicure with one of my besties!

This weekend we are going up to West Palm Beach to visit with my husband’s family. After we get home from a day of stuffing our faces, eating delicious authentic + homemade Lebanese food (ohhh so good! And FYI my husband is Lebanese), then the hubby and I will have a date night! We usually try to have one night a week alone. He and I usually go to a movie or grab some dinner + drinks. What are you up to this weekend?
