Hello Rain.  Seems like you’re here to stay.  At least it’ll be warm for the next few days.

Hello Milestones.  Lil’ Red has been up to lots.  Enjoying Cheerios for the first time.  Cutting two more teeth.  Zooming around in his walker.  Turning 9 months old.  Sigh! It’s all going by so quickly.  Can’t I just hit the pause button for a bit.

Hello Ideas.  There are ton swimming around in my head & even more written down in my journal & typed on my cell.  Now it’s time to prioritize them & get to working.

Hello NYC Road Trip.  We’ll be spending Memorial Day Weekend in NYC for a change.  I’m looking forward to catching up with friends.

Hello Week 3 of Insanity.  I skipped a day over the weekend. But I woke up nice & early today to get back on the wagon.  It feels good & I’m loving the difference I’m seeing in my body.

Hello Monday {My Ballerina}

Hello Amigos!!  And why Hello Monday!  You’re here again?  So soon?

 How was everyone’s weekend & Mother’s Day?  Mine was just right!

 The highlight of the weekend was Gordita’s Dance Recital on Saturday.  She looked absolutely adorable in her costume.  You may remember that I mentioned I feared she wouldn’t dance on the BIG day.  Well I was wrong.  She shook what her momma gave her just fine.  In fact she brought me to tears.  I couldn’t help myself; I became overwhelmed with pride seeing my baby girl up there on that big stage, doing her thing.  She never ceases to amaze me.



Hello New Week.  I’m not sure about you, but I guess let’s get it started. 

 Hello Week 2 of Insanity.  Today is my rest day, boy am I thankful.  I have muscles that apparently I haven’t used in years that are all achy.

 Hello Laundry.  I’m so not ready to tackle you.  Wishing I could twitch my nose & you would wash & put your self away clothes.

 Hello to Keeping It Simple this week.

Linking up to the Lovely Lisa.

Abrazos, Sapphire

Hello Monday {First Timer}

How’s everyone’s Monday going? Mine has been a little on the Manic side. I’m sensing a pattern here, cause last Monday was a bit nutso too.  In an attempt to keep my sanity and wits about me. I made a funny, because I’m beyond the sane mark.  Anyhoo, I joined the Hello Monday Movement started by Lisa Leonard. So let’s get this thing going…

Hello Manic Monday. I’m a bit frazzled, but grateful nonetheless for another day.


Hello Baby Boy squirming around in my belly. 14 more weeks till I get to kiss and love you. We can’t wait to meet you.

Hello Paint Colors. Looks like we’ve finally narrowed down our color choices for the lower level of our home to Benjamin Moore, Rockport Gray.

Hello to finishing up the details for Family Fun Day at Lil’ Giant’s school. Bounce House ordered. Games ready. Menu planned. Still looking for a face painter. MUST work on the event flyer.

Hello Garage Clean-Up.  Work it girl. You WILL complete this project.

Hello Pinterest.  Thanks for some FAB-U-LOUS ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week and Mother’s Day.  Can’t wait to show them off later this week.

Hello $35 Changing Table I bought at my favorite kid’s consignment sale. More about all the great deals I scored, later on this week too.

Hello Avengers. Saw the movie last night with my boys. We loved seeing it in 3D. Can’t wait to add this to our movie collection. And while I’m at it… Hello Captain America!  Hello Thor! They are Hot. Hot. Hot. Those are some good lookin’ blanquitos.

I’m already feeling better about this soggy Monday.  It could have something to do with the eye candy. It is good for the soul, ya know?
