Last weekend I attended an LA Mamacitas event promoting the upcoming movie “Daddy’s Home 2” with my little family. It was a fun day out with my husband, Tommy, and our soon-to-be eight month old little boy, Ben. It was a nice change being at an a event where the dads were the VIP guests for the day! LA Mamacitas always set up the most enjoyable and unique activities.
“Daddy’s Home 2” follows the story of a father and stepfather duo, Dusty and Brad, as they join forces to make the holiday season perfect for their children. It is a fun holiday movie for the whole family to love starring John Lithgow, Mel Gibson, Linda Cardellini, Mark Wahlberg and John Cena.
Since this movie is all about the dads, all of our husbands/dads (aka LA Papacitos) were invited to the event. Sugar Craft LA hosted a cookie-decorating class, and had all the cookies, frosting and sprinkles set up and ready for cookie decorating with dads. Not only was this a fun way to bond, but a great way to kick off the holiday season as well!
“Daddy’s Home 2” comes to theaters this Friday, November 10th. Be sure to catch it, and enjoy the laughs with the special dad in your life or with all of your family and friends!
I get asked pretty often how I manage my time with a baby. I am a new mom, and I don’t have it all down, but I have worked really hard since having my little boy to manage my days and make the most of my time with my husband, Tommy, and my son, Ben. Now that I am back to my full time job, I find it even more important to manage my time. I want to share a little about how our life with a baby has become a more happy and relaxed one. Since I am hosting a giveaway with Jord watches, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of the ways I manage my time as a new mom!
First let me quickly tell you why I love my Jord watch. Jord watches are beautifully made of wood. That is so unique, and I do not own anything like it. They come in a variety of styles and finishes. I am just loving all things gold, rose gold and pink right now, so this watch was right up my alley. I love that I can dress my watch up for work or an event or I can dress it down when I am out and about with my little family. Take a look at their website and see which is your favorite. Jord makes watches in styles for women and men. Continue reading “How I Learned to Manage my Time as a New Mom”
I love all things Disney! Recently I was able to attend a fun family luau in Los Angeles put on by LA Mamacitas to celebrate the release of the DVD Minnie’s Happy Helpers. It was a perfect sunny day filled with pink flamingos, golden pineapples, flower crowns, tropical snacks and happy kids. Thank you so much for having my family and I ladies, and thank you Disney for making it possible! Continue reading “Minnie Mouse Luau”
Summer is coming and one of my favorite things to do with my almost three-month-old baby boy is to go on daily walks around our neighborhood. As a new mom, I tend to want to overprepare whenever I take my son out, but since we walk almost every day I have my essential items down!
I pack our stroller with his stretchy cover to protect him from the sun, his pacifier just in case, a water tumbler for me, and a Kleenex Go Anywhere Pack because you always need tissue handy. Continue reading “My Favorite Items on Our Summer Walks”
I am a new mama!
My husband, Tom, and I survived the first month of parenthood, and we could not be more in love with our son, Ben!
I decided I wanted to do something special to track each month of his first year. There are so many creative ideas out there, and since I love the look of a chalkboard, I decided to go with that. This is my DIY Monthly Baby Update Chalkboard and Photos. Continue reading “DIY Monthly Baby Update Chalkboard and Photos”
Last weekend was my sister’s baby shower! We had a big family party to celebrate the parents-to-be and little baby Olivia. The party was Mexican themed with vibrant colors, handmade paper flowers and lots, I mean lots of delicious Mexican food. I am sharing all of the little details and the food here with you today!
