I normally don't post these until Monday, but we'll be in Jamaica by then! I'm soooo excited! I'm not sure if/how much I'll be blogging while I'm there, but I'm sure I'll have plenty of stories to tell when I get back. Anyway, this was a pretty laid back week. I'd write more about it, but my kids are screaming at me to get off the computer right now. Oh well... what I have so far will have to do...
No matter how old she gets, she still looks like a tiny baby when she's sleeping. <3 <3 <3
I gave Eva her first Jamicure this week. She's obsessed with painting her nails AND with stickers, so she was basically in heaven while I was putting them on her.
I'm also super happy with this little bookshelf that came in from PersonalCreations.com. Eva finally has a place for her books that is easily accessible and easy for her to clean up. And, like everything else from the site, it was personalized with her name on it. This would be a great gift for the upcoming holidays! They also have tons of other gift ideas.
This was one of those weeks where I was like, "Oh my God I can't believe how big this little boy is getting!" He turned five months old this week and he's really starting to get into that "fun" baby stage. He loves to play and interact with us. He also slept like an angel all week, only waking up once or twice every night. I'm sooooo stoked about that. I hope our trip to Jamaica doesn't mess that up. Either way, I can't wait to see how he does in the warm, tropical ocean. I think he's going to love it!
This week I finally felt brave enough to wear Damian in the kanga. We only did a side carry at first, but later in the week we tried the back... and it worked! I'm so happy we're finally at this point. Carrying in the kanga is my favorite. :)
This week I made my first pie ever. I used all the apples we picked from our trip to the orchard. I didn't get to try it, though. Daniel took it to work for one of his functions. He said it was delicious, though, and it went really fast. I hope they weren't just being nice, haha! It was square, after all.
Jamberry Update: I had my first Jamberry party and it was a success! I'm so glad I decided to start selling. Below is a picture of a half-Jamicure I did using a couple of the accent nails I was giving away. The black is regular nail polish, so you can see how better I am at putting the Jams on, haha. Six days later (today) the Jams still look great while the nail polish is all chipped, even after touching it up. If you want to support my new business visit www.tothesea.jamberry.com!
Other than that... we're all packed and ready to go to Jamaica. Speaking of which, I can't believe I've never had one of these nifty luggage scales before. I found it for less than $10 on GroopDealz. Totally worth it. Now I don't have to do the luggage shuffle at the airport, haha. I also got a really cool photography backdrop that I can't wait to try out when I get back.
See you in two weeks!!!
