Easter Outfits !!!

I'm very happy with the outfits I picked for the kiddies for Easter this yer and they also have an appt. on the 8th to get their pics taken at Picture People! This will be Sofia's first time as well as Antonio's in a picture studio (i know .....I waited way too long) so let's hope things go smoothly! This is what i found this year.  I fell in love with Sofia's dress from Baby Gap ......





 
 


and yes I am one of those "matchy-matchy" moms when it comes to dressing my kids which is not always the easiest this to do when you have a boy and a girl.  Especially when the girl is wearing pink.  However ....I found the perfect polo in Old Navy for my son.....and it has a tiny bit of pink .......Just enough so that his father wasn't mad I put pink on him...HA! Paired with some khakis and dress shoes.....SO CUTE!


 
 

And besides taking pics in the studio I'm hoping to get some on Easter Day outside.  I'm hoping since it's in late April this year we'll get some warm weather but winter's been lingering a bit here in the Northeast! Let's pray for sun!

Anxious to see what others' little ones will be wearing too!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sundaes on Sunday

Sofia has been begging me lately for Ritas I thought I would take her to this new place, Cups. Too bad when we got there .....theres was literally 30 people waiting in line out the door. NO way was I gonna stand in that line with a 3 and a 1 year old so we hit up the supermarket for this instead :)






Sunday Morning Destruction!

Am I the only one who's kids wake up on a rampage in the morning.....usually at about....hmmmm.....6 am! Why can't mommy wake up this happy at 6 am?

My LOVE/HATE Relationship with NEW JERSEY.

It's weekends like this when I remember my LOVE/HATE relationship with the Garden State.

1.  I HATE THE COST OF CHILDCARE IN NJ! The cost of rent is also ATROCIOUS!
2.  I despise our governor as well!
3.  I DO LURRRRVVVVEEEEE me some New Jersey shopping though!  The fact that I have 5 gazillion malls around me is pure AWESOMENESS......but very bad for my bank account!
4.  I freaking love that we are about 10 degrees warmer than where I grew up in PA except for weekends like this when that BIA Mother Nature decides to give me a 78 degree day on a Friday when I dont even get out of work in time to really enjoy it.  I did get a hour so sunshine in with kid #1 outside.  Nothing beats bubbles and tricycles!







Ahhh I remeber when I was that carefree!....Gone are those days!


5.  I also love that we have every and any kind of restaurant you can think of so on Sunday we did enjoy a nice family day and Daddy took us to the most yummy Colombian Restaurant ever called Noches de Colombia.  They also have one really close to my house and they DELIVER! This could be very bad for my bank account!

6.  We're also only about 10 minutes from NYC so after dinner we went to take a nice drive through Times Square which is one of the many reasons I love NJ.....Being so close to NYC is awesome and I love sharing that with my bebes!


Only in Times Square could a McDonald's look like this!





Taken from my sun roof .....while Daddy was driving of course!


And just because my one of my son's million nicknames is Bubba Gump ....I couldn't help it :)


However, now this week snow and freezing rain hit us as soon as we walked out the door!  Once again I'm back to hating NJ! BLAH!

I'm so happy I was given the opportunity to review this lovely CD. It features a compilation of songs written by greats like Sade,  The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Wilco, Tom Waits, Donovan, Dixie Chicks, Hugh Prestwood, Josh Ritter and Jane.....and performed by the soothing voice of Ms. Jane Roman-Pitt.  I started listening to the CD as I was cooking Saturday night and the lyrics in combination with her voice are absolutely breathtaking and beautiful....it almost brought me to tears! All i could think about was rocking my babies to sleep.  They really accompany a mothers love for her child and will send your babies right off to dreamland....I know.....because I almost fell asleep too a few times listening to it! My 3 year old also loved it too ......She actually told me it was her new "Ballet Music"!
