Happy First Birthday Isaac!

Have been quite the busy lady lately and there has not been enough time in the day for me to get on here. But I would like to share some Pictures from my sweet Isaac Paul's first birthday party. I decided on a simple mustache theme and made Isaac his very own coconut banana berry cake. I have had one of the best years of my life sharing it with this little boy and I can not wait to share many more!

Instagram and life lately.

I have been taking a break from this blog for the past couple days and taking care of some stuff going on in my life. I'm not one to put my relationship on blast on the Internet like some but I will say that I have moved back to Spokane which is about 6 hours away from Bellingham. Here all of my friends and family live and I am so happy to be able to be around them again. Being a stay at home mom in a city where you don't know anybody can be pretty tough. But I am also not one who likes to complain so I have been just holding my head high and taking baby steps to getting Isaac and my future back on track. We have found the most perfect one bedroom apartment with pretty hardwood floors and a small little retro like kitchen. My favorite part about it though is the cute park about two blocks away and that so many of my friends live in the same neighborhood! Being close to downtown is always a plus! We have not slept there yet and have been staying at my parents until I can get the place cleaned up and safe for Isaac. Also I have been searching for a part-time job which is also a new thing for me since I have not worked in a year and a half. I'm okay with it though, I think it will give me a sense of doing something for my own. Hope it works out. Right now I'm not exactly sure as to how things will  pan out, but I'm okay with that, I kind of like being able to live life without expectations because like people say if you don't expect things then you wont get hurt. Hope you all are enjoying life to the fullest!

Isaac is a smiling healthy happy boy and this could not make me more happy. If there is anything I would want it is for a smile to be upon this boys face. The past week has been pretty rough for me and I have been trying my best to stay positive, but I am human and sometimes we all have a breaking point, right?
Yesterday pushing Isaac on the swing and hearing him squeal with happiness for 5 minutes straight, took all my bad days and threw them right in the back seat. Naturally I am a very indecisive person, if you want an opinion I'm not such a good person to ask. It can take me forever just to figure out what to have for lunch, so long you could probably then consider it dinner, seriously. Also my feelings get hurt very easily and when they get hurt I usually hide them and try my hardest to just brush them off. This is not such a good thing, I can handle the indecisive thing but when I try and walk around bad things instead of face them head on it can get me in a lot of trouble. I have a lot to be thankful for and so much to live for and am still so young. Therefore living unhappy and just dealing with it is no longer an option, I can still be who I want as long as I work hard and I don't give in to feeling sorry for myself.
For the next few months I need to focus on what is important and for me that is Isaac, and for me to feel whole again. Spokane Ill be seeing you Monday along with my amazing family and beautiful friends. Hope everybody has a great weekend!

Good Morning.

I woke up before everybody this morning. I wasn't sure at first what I was going to do with this time, shower, clean? Nope! Making a huge fruit platter and a cup of tea sounded way more relaxing so that is exactly what I did. By the way broiled grapefruit with sugar is so delicious, try it you won't be disappointed. Twenty minutes later I was interrupted by something so sweet. Happy Thursday.

An update.
For the past week I have been having the roughest nights of sleep, ever! For some reason when I put isaac down for bed he can't get comfortable, I'm not sure why but he sleep crawls and will continuously do this for about an hour and a half. I try having him sleep on my chest and he instantly clings to me and passes out and leaves me wide awake. I feel bad that he is having a hard time so I have tried baby massage and doing bath time with no toys before bed. Neither have worked so I'm hoping this is just a phase! Cross your fingers for me or I'm going to be a zombie for awhile.
 Eating gluten-free is so expensive, I decided yesterday to stop. :/ I wasn't so sure how I felt about this yesterday but after going grocery shopping and seeing our bill cut nearly in half I now feel way better about it! I also know I didn't stick to it for too long but I never actually felt any different after going gluten-free, I don't think I will be trying it out in the near future either. Maybe a few recipes here and there but I don't think its the right way to go for my family and I.
 As far as the beginning of March goes I can't believe that in only a few short weeks I will be celebrating with Isaac and my family for his first birthday! We have been doing some fun stuff for his party such as making some bunting and figuring out what his cake will be. Im so excited to watch Isaac dig into his cake for the first time! Also we can not wait to see my parents and my brothers, it has been 3 months since we have seen them. Gosh I get all jittery typing this and thinking about it. Cannot wait until the 24th! 
Happy Wednesday

Lately I Love it When...

I make waffles for breakfast, they are my absolute favorite.

When nap time is over and I walk into the room to see isaac awaken, and I'm greeted with a squeal and smile.

My parents come to visit Isaac and I. We always anticipate them coming, only a few more weeks till they come see us again too! Grandpa and Isaac on his motorcycle this last summer when he rode over for the day to see us. So cute.

I turn the bath water on and Isaac can barely contain his excitement. He shakes and wiggles while trying to rip his shirt of himself as fast as he can. Even if he throws every bottle inside the tub.You are so cute Isaac Paul.

I wake up before anybody in the house, feels good like I can do something for just me and I'm the only one who has a say. "me time"

The Ocean is wild and waves crash against the wood of the boardwalk on our walks, but also the calm relaxing flat as glass Ocean that sparkles when the sun dances across it. Its pure joy when Im next to the ocean. My little baby doing tummy time at the park in the summer at Blvd. park with the most perfect view of the bay.

I sing songs to Isaac and he just stares at me with the sweetest smirk, it melts my soul when that boy smiles at me. Like he could just completely take away any feeling or thought I have and make it a moment to cherish. I sing this one most.

The House is clean. Dishes, laundry, bills are paid. Makes everything else a little more enjoyable. Doesn't it?

Above all else when my family is happy I'm probably pretty happy myself. Ive always been a people pleaser but when the ones I love are enjoying life there is no greater "I love it when" My favorite picture of my two loves last summer. These pictures make me smile so big because I remember this day exactly.

We all have little things that when they happen you can't help but be happy, just drop everything and smile kind of moments. Every bone in your body, word spoke, emotion felt is completely compelled by your happiness.These are just a few little things that happen and when they do, it reminds me of how lucky I truly am. When days are off and I'm feeling down I like to write out little happy moments It always brings my mood up.
What brings you happiness? A certain someone's smile, a silly love song? Write them out and see you'll be surprised at the happiness it brings.

Hey Saturday.

I am always on the go it seems lately, usually this is not the case but I have been really enjoying getting out of the apartment and seeing new places and doing fun little mommy and me dates with Isaac. Packing up the backpack and heading out for downtown and Fairhaven to do some exploring. We did a little birthday shopping for Isaac (he didn't peek he promised) and ate some donuts. Did I mention how much I love Rocket Donuts? Or just donuts in general actually but downtown they have the best, gluten-free, vegan and your "average" delicious sugar donut treats. I ate two gluten-free ones to myself and bought a plain gluten-free one for Isaac although I think he enjoyed my sprinkle one better. We also decided to pick one up for dad to bring to him at work. If I could I would probably enjoy a donut from there once a week, but I'm not sure thats such a smart idea.
besides eating donuts we went to an old building used for ship parts that is no longer open, but there is something that I think is pretty awesome about it! On the side is a heart in green leafy vines. I saw it one day driving by and today decided to go see it up close. The sad part was that there was a sign up next to it talking about the demolition of building! I am Glad I had went to see it though before they tore the building down.
 There is something so great about Bellingham that I can never explain fully, I think that is what is so awesome is that there are so many cities and places across the U.S. and they all have something that makes them unique. I think the place I call home suits me well, for now anyways. :)
Happy Saturday!
