Archive for October, 2012

See, I told you here that I would be back 🙂

My sweet boy just turned 3 – ok, it was in August, and we are in October, but who is counting….

This year he asked me to have a diver party – after watching Finding Nemo for a billion times I guess he became attached to that diver’s mask.

And being a loving mom that I am ( and a party planner trying to avoid the characters for as I long as I can) I went for it.

I have to say that the party was planned in 4 weeks.

“4 weeks of working 40 hours outside the house and then putting everyone to sleep to start working on the decor”  kind of weeks.

We decided to have it at our clubhouse, by the pool, but just like last year, an uninvited guest decided to show up.

This year was Hurricane Isaac.

Who decided to come on the DAY OF THE PARTY….REALLY??????

I decided ( Isaac forced me to it) to have the party at our house, and I actually loved how it turned out.

The first thing was coming out with the invitation. I knew I wanted to be colorful and wanted to have some kind of texture ( not just straight out of my printer), so my sister in law from Tudo de Bom Arte Festas   and I came out with this diver, that looked jut like Josh, with curly hair and all.

From there it was easy peasy.

My dear Sil worked hard to make every detail of this invitation, and if the help of Michaels the result was one ( more like 40) adorable invitation.


What do you think?

I will be adding these one to the shop soon


Happy Wednesday!!

Can’t wait to show you pictures of the party

Yes, we are back!

I know, I know you missed me and I know you thought I might had decided to join the CIA or become an undercover agent….but no, after all this months I am back, hoping someone still following me (besides my mom).

Since the last post so many things happened, and I am not kidding. We went from living here:

to here:

Went from being a family of 3 to an almost family of 4:

And although sweet Baby Noah is not due until November 11th I’ve been having contractions and feeling like he might decide to come meet us all sooner then expected.

So yes, a lot of things changed, and I feel like my day ends before my to do list, but I am back and although I’ve been working full-time I do have a lot of parties to share with you.

So if you are reading this, thank you!

Thank you for not giving up on me ( or not hitting the unsubscribe button).


Stay tuned….there is a lot more to come.
