So in early December, my sister and I are planning a Sister’s Getaway to New York. I’ve put together a little wish list for our Winter trip.

New York is so beautiful during the Holidays, isn’t it? I love it when my sis and I get to go away together. We are both so busy & It’s been too long! I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with my best friend! And since we live in Florida, it’s also a good excuse to purchase some sweaters + outerwear pieces for the trip. It will be freeeeezing – brrrrrrr! But for those of you who live in the colder parts of the country, maybe this post will give you some ideas for your winter wardrobe.

What I’ve Been Up To Lately…Mexico Trip, B-Day Party Planning, Snapchatting

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!

Babymoon Time!

July 23, 2014

Our babymoon is just a day away, and I CAN’T WAIIIIIIT!!!

I think taking the time off with your partner before your little one’s arrival is a MUST (if you can)! We got away when we were expecting with our first son…And we had a unforgetable babymoon in Italy (pictures below)!

My husband and I ideally wanted to get out-of-town this time around, but because we have a 19 month old & the days literally just flew by, unfortunately, we missed our window to travel by plane.

Luckily, we live in a city most people would love to come for vacation – Miami! We have amazing hotels/resorts to choose from.

My hubby booked us at a beautiful resort where we can relax, enjoy the spa & just be beach-bums…We literally just want to do NOTHING!

We need this time away from our day-to-day life to re-connect and re-charge our batteries before our 2nd blessing arrives. And if you already have a kid at home already then ya know what I mean!

If you’re expecting (or will be someday soon) take my advice, and GO!

 

Tell me where you went on your baby moon? Do you have any suggestions for the moms-to-be?
