Mother's Day 2014

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!! 

This year was my second Mother's Day and I did absolutely nothing lol. *Kanye shrug* Oh well. I enjoyed being lazy today. 
My gift from my mommy and Gabby was a bad ass pair of wedges! 

Now the gift I got my mommy was pretty bad ass too. I got her the necessary basics of course; the cards from myself and her granddaughter. I let Gabby scribble on her card so it could be like her signature. But the main present was from Victoria's Secret. I got her a matching bra and panty set from the Body by Victoria collection and as an added bonus at check out, I got a free angel necklace for spending over $75. Woohoo! She of course loved all her gifts. 

Well thats it. Lol I seriously did nothing today. Haha. But I enjoyed it. 

Happy Mother's Day!

Gabby's New Sleep Routine

Of course, getting her off the passie is way harder than I thought. Shes definitely    not using it as much anymore. But she sometimes cannot sleep without it. Oh well. Its just gonna have to be like that until shes 18 months old. So one more month! 
But as far as her sleep schedule goes, its now on "Toddler Time". Her new bedtime is 8pm/8:30pm. 
Our routine is simple of course and similar to her baby sleep schedule. 

First I give her a bath. I like to keep bath time short and sweet. Dump all the toys in the tub, add bubbles then add Gabby. I immediately wash her, then wash her hair if needed, and then shes out. Shes still too young in my opinion for actual bath toys.

After her bath, we go to the room to dry off, lotion up then put her pj's on. All while we do that, the lights are off and I only have the lamp and night light on so she knows its time to quiet down.

Now after the last step, either one or two things happen depending on her energy. 

1. I let her "blow off steam" or as Yo Gabba Gabba says, "Get the sillies out". I let her play with toys while I get our stuff ready for the next day. And when I'm done, I put her in the bed and let her go to sleep. 
 Or
2. I lay down with her until she falls asleep. Then i'll do what I have to for the next day. 

Its really simple compared to her baby schedule. I don't play music for her anymore because she'll start dancing. Lol  

Shes growing so fast. 
Time goes by so quickly. 
Enjoy every single moment.

My Mother's Day 2014 gift planning

Last year was my first Mother's Day and I think that it was just all so new to me, that I kinda didn't know what to do. Sit back and wait for the gifts or still give to other mommies...well of course due to my loving personality i'm definitely giving back because last year just didn't feel right to me. All I want this year is a nice dinner. :) 
But for my own mommy, I want to give her something useful and heartfelt. For something heartfelt, of course a card with a handwritten message in it will do for that. Something useful....hmmmm. Lol. 
Claude's mom, Mrs. Karen, had a birthday yesterday and I wanted to kind of give her the same thing. Something I know shes going to use. So I got her a sleep shirt from Victoria's Secret. :) Since I worked there, I know that they have everything there and its all good quality. 
But, I don't want to give my mom pj's. Shes like me...we don't wear any. Lol ;) ;P 
So I'm debating whether or not to give her a nice bra, a bundle of panties, or just get her a sleepshirt and pray she wears it. Haha. 

Hmm. Decisions. Decisions. :)

Told ya I would start blogging more. ;) I keep my promises. Promise. <3

New Season, New Plans.

Okay so this past Easter I had a wake up call. I told myself that this year I'm going full force to pursuing my dreams. Well....If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans. 
He definitely woke me up and opened my eyes to some things. But the two things he definitely made clear to me were, 1. Seek Him first before you do ANYTHING. Because without God, it will fail. And 2. What he says goes. Do what he says or else. Haha. I don't mean to scare you guys or anything but its the truth. So after a week of thinking and praying and asking him to show me what it is He wants me to do, I've had a change in plans... (Ugh i'd never thought i'd say this, but) I'm going back to school. I'm going for secondary education to become a high school history teacher. 
Why high school? I get along with teenagers. (I might do Jr High but more then likely I'm gonna do High School)
Why history? I love it and I know alot about it. (I'm not good at math so....yea)
Why teaching? Because I love people and I love to help people out and make them feel special. 
Now don't get me wrong, I'm still going to pursue my dreams of modeling and entertainment. Thats in my heart to do. :) 

Until next time my loves. And if you want to find out what it is that God wants you to do, just ask him in prayer! :D
