A week without blogging.

Last week, Sean was away. He flew to Austin with his brothers and road tripped to visit their dad in Florida. This left Javi and me, back home, alone for 8 days. I was fully prepared for all the spiders to come out of the wood work and for the smoke detectors to need new batteries and for something terrible to happen -- because isn't that always the way?! But luckily the most annoying part of the whole week was trash day - yuck. 

To say that it was a busy week would be an understatement. It was a lot of work! Between teaching and waking up Javi extra early to get him to school so I could get to work on time, and leaving work to make sure I got him in time, and dinner and packing lunches and bags and dishes and picking up toys and bath time --  I think I went to bed every night before 8:30. There was no time for anything blogging related -- or anything else. Let's just say it made me truly grateful of our little family and set-up and routine. And I'm so glad to have it back. Here are some pictures of the week: 



Nordstrom Picks: Mother's Day wishlist!

Mother's Day is around the corner (one week from today, exactly!) and I've gathered up a few of my favorite things at Nordstrom. I wouldn't mind anyone gifting some of these items my way. :) This year marks my second mother's day I'm able to celebrate! 

We don't have any plans (that I know about) for Mother's Day but I am totally a fan of experience gifts too so I wouldn't mind doing something fun and exciting with Javi and Sean on that day. I guess I'll have to wait and see!


May the 4th be with you... at Hanna Andersson!

It's no surprise I love Hanna Andersson because of their cute and totally soft kid clothing. It's even less of a surprise that our house revolves around Star Wars. Seriously. On Saturday mornings, Sean watches the movies and tells me Javi requested to watch (ha!). They both have SO many t-shirts and Javi has light sabers and stuffed animals and stickers and shoes and hats and the list goes on and on of Star Wars paraphernalia. I guess it's a father/son bonding experience! 

Because of this I'm so excited over Hanna Andersson's "May the 4th be with you" 20% off Star Wars sale! Since I'm not totally a fan (I mean I like it...) at least I can buy the apparel and act excited! Here are some favorites from their sale (valid on May 4th ONLY -- get it?! May the 4th [force] be with you).


May the 4th sale: 20% off all Star Wars sleep & apparel at Hanna Andersson! Valid 5/4 only.
