Time Flies

I can't believe our little boy is already 2 months old! Where does the time go? I thought it went fast with our daughter, but I think it's going even faster the second time around. It's kind of sad when you think about it, because they're only little for such a short time. I guess that's why we take so many pictures so that we always have these times and memories to cherish. Before we know it he'll be two like our daughter is...crazy.

My hubby is pretty good about buying jewelry. He often surprises me and finds just the perfect item. Most recently he came home with beautiful diamond hoop earrings. I absolutely love them. He was saying that next he'd love to get me some sapphire earrings which I think would be really nice too. I love that he's so thoughtful like that. I was doing a little looking of my own and came across Holsted Jewelers.

They provide exclusively designed jewelry, gifts and accessories to millions of customers. They are known for their high standards, quality and service. I am so glad to have come across their company. I love that they offer fashionable jewelry that is unique. If I end up getting something from them, I know I won't see every woman I walk by with the same earrings. I also like the fact that their jewelry is affordable, something I'm sure many of us can appreciate during this time of economic hardship.

Snow Storm

Wow! The weather is bad out there. Schools and business all around were canceling today. This is the second or third large snow storm we've gotten in the past month or so. It really puts a damper on people's plans to go places, especially work and school. It's also very dangerous to drive in. Thankfully hubby was able to get off work early and is now home safe and sound. I don't like him out in the bad weather, so I am very thankful he has a job where he can leave early if he needs to. Hopefully tomorrow will be nicer, but we'll just have to see. Sometimes the day after the storm is just as bad with all the snow blowing and drifting.

Stay At Home Mom

We've sure been enjoying the newest addition to our family. He is such a joy. I am so happy to have the opportunity to be home with Kaden and Kaelyn every day. What a blessing it is to be able to watch them as they grow and change right before my eyes. I enjoy getting to see all of their firsts and teach them things along the way. Being a stay at home mom is the most rewarding job I could ever have or will ever have. It's also the most important. It's a decision that Scott and I made well before we even had kids, and for that I'm very thankful.

Planning a Family Vacation

Now that we have two children, we definitely look for places that offer a Kid friendly hotel when planning a vacation. I know it's a little early, but with this terrible winter weather we've been having, my hubby and I find ourselves dreaming of, and planning a family vacation already. We heard some good things about the Karisma Hotels located on the white-sand beaches of the Mexican Riviera Maya and are interested in learning more. From what I understand they have a new gourmet-inclusive concept which is great for those that like food. They also have terrific service and a lot of amenities that would really enjoy. I'm looking forward to hopefully going here sometime this if only summer would come more quickly!
