5 THINGS TO DO AS A FAMILY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

DSC_9508

Guys, can we talk about this little guy for a second? He seriously melts my heart. I was so excited to see his reaction to the balloons, and he was seriously not interested in them at all. Also, I am not sure what got into baby Daddy for him to want to join us for these pics. We were getting ready  and he asked what kind of shoot we were doing, and when I told him, he seemed interested so I asked him to come and he jumped on it. Of course, I was like oh fudge… What is he gonna wear, but we figured it out and the pictures came out so cute!

I had been looking for a little outfit for this particular Valentine’s day shoot, but I couldn’t find anything that was not cheesy. Everything I was finding was so literal and full of hearts, and kitschy catch phrases like, “cutest cupid” or “stealing hearts” and I was started to get annoyed because then he would only be able to wear it once, and that is just not his style, LOL. But when I saw this one online I didn’t think twice, I called my local store to see if they had it in stock and ran right down there. I would of totally paid for overnight shipping had they not.  (I shared some cute V Day outfit ideas that are not so kitschy)

We’ve never been huge valentines day people. In fact, I cant remember the last one we celebrated. But now with Easton, I want to celebrate everything. He has given me that joy back (even if he didn’t care about the balloons I begged the girl to make for me. It was Super Bowl Sunday and they were so buys). And even though Pete and I won’t celebrate alone, we do plan on doing something fun with this little guy. Here are some ideas we are throwing around. Obvi when Easton gets a little older, we’ll do the traditional stuff of baking cookies, buying cards, etc. But for now, it’s more about stimulation for him and something that is also enjoyable for us.

  1. Go for a family hike, followed by a reward. We love to hike and after our  hikes we always went to grab a bite to eat and beers. We took Easton on a his first hike (a short one) the other day and he did well we are considering a long hike.
  2. Go to a local animal sanctuary or habitat. Here in Las Vegas we have the Lion Habitat and the Tiger and Dolphin habitat  located inside of the Mirage Hotel. Both places run about $22 for adults, and $15/$17 for children
  3. Visit a petting zoo. No matter how old your little is, I think they would love to be able to touch an animal. Bonnie Springs Ranch is on our list
  4. Explore a neighboring town. Baby will love the change of scenery and you’ll get to enjoy a new experience as well.
  5. Plan a fun family photo shoot with props like we did here with balloons.

XxOx, Marisela

DEAR EASTON

My dear baby boy, today you are one! It’s only been 365, but somehow it feels like we have been together for a lifetime. The feeling I felt the moment I physically held you has not faded one bit and every time I hold you now the feeling comes back just the same. The first…

MY CURRENT SKIN CARE ROUTINE

    Ever since having Easton I’ve desired better skin. Mostly because putting on makeup to feel better about myself is a little ridiculous, in my opinion. I want to eliminate the need for any foundations, tinted moisturizer, powders during the day. I want to be able to wear blush, mascara and a little lipgloss…
