I am not the one to “promote” my birthday or “brag” about the gifts that I receive. But the older I get the more I forget lol #mombrain and I thought I wanted to remember these days, especially with my child. So about a month ago was my birthday and I vlogged a bit about it!

And now a month later my husbands birthday comes along and I got to surprise this man once again for his special “over the hill” birthday! Surprised him twice within 24hours!! Have the video to prove it.

Happy Birthday to the love of my life!

I get to call this man my husband! Happy Birthday Love!

Sure, you make fun of me (all the time). Your texts mostly always have a joke in them and you laugh at your own jokes. Even though we don’t have the same sense of humor all the time, it is a part of your charm and honestly, it all makes you…YOU. Love that you keep the light and laughter in my world. You have also created a small comedian in Everest. I love you Sunny – thank you for being you. Thank you for being a father worthy to be called Daddy. Thank you for being a husband that is faithful, true, loving and kind. Happy, happiest 40th! I’m so excited to celebrate with you this weekend!!

確かに、あなたは私のことを(いつも)ジョークで楽んでいる。あなたのテキストもほとんど冗談があり、あなたはあなた自身のジョークにも笑います。私たちはいつも同じユーモア感覚を持っていないかもしれないが、それはあなたの魅力の一部だと思う。あなたが私の世界で光と笑いを持って来てくれるから大好きです。エベレストも小さなコメディアンになってきたね。 Sunny愛しているよ – 素敵なお父さんになり、素直な旦那でいてくれてありがとう。 ハッピーで幸せな40歳を!今週末にあなたと祝うことがとてもたのしみにしているよ!

The Ups and Downs of a Freelancer

I have been doing freelance work for about 13 years now and you would think that I would be used to the fact that every opportunity I get will always end ( no company will hire a freelancer forever) But when I do have to say good bye it always does scare me. I get frightened on things like “how will I pay the bills next month” or “who am I going to work with next?”
So the other day I had to walk away from another company. From the start it didn’t feel right but I tried to make it work and some companies just don’t understand the importance of building a social media presence or building that community. And there is only so much one freelancer can do! Good Bye, it was time.
Before that though I had a high by meeting the daughter of one of my favorite companies in Japan! She was sweet and we talked about paper goods which always gets me happy. Maybe it was all a sign that its time for me to go full force with my little shop and build it into something!

Here was my day:

Meeting the Easter Bunny

Technically this is my little ones 2nd Easter, but it was his first to meet the Easter Bunny and to look for Easter eggs…you know, the bunny side of things! This vlog was at a Fashion Mama’s event at The Grove sponsored by Lauduree(yummm). They had little DIY craft tables , bunny petting area and complimentary Bunny photo sessions.It was a fun filled day and we took a lot of photos of E. Definitely a day we will be adding to our album!

Thank you Fashion Mama’s, The Grove, Laduree for having us!

A Day With My 6 Month Old

This is kind of my normal day to day schedule:


So far I have only left little E with family for a day, maybe 4 times. They weren’t even full days. (So hard to stay away from my little nugget!) This time schedule was made for my husband.It doesn’t go exactly this way, but it gives you an idea of what his naps would look like.

Like I said in the video, every month is different. I am not strict on naps, kinda go with the flow kinda mom (BUT always making sure he goes down AT LEAST every 2-2.5 hours)

As I am writing this he is crying in his crib trying to fall asleep. The sleep training has started and like everyone says, night time training is waaay easier than the afternoon naps! Now that he knows how to grab things (like his crib) and stand up, he stands and cries..sometimes I think he even forgets how to sit 🙁

Let’s see how our schedules will change next month!!
