Hi Guys, welcome to my new website! This has been long overdue and I knew my first blog post on my website had to be about our wonderful little boy, Antonio. I cannot believe he's already 1 years old. Time sure has flown by this year. I tried very hard to not go overboard when I was planning his 1st birthday party, especially because my husband kept reminding me everyday to take it easy...lol


Antonio's birthday party was such a success, everything from the decor, food and all of our closest friends and family members that came to help celebrate his birthday with us, thank you for all of your support. We truly feel blessed and this is one special little boy that's loved by many.


We went with a Baseball theme for his party. Take a peak into his birthday party.




Food:

You guys my friend Addie from Luxe Appel is seriously the BEST CHEF ever! She never fails me and event when I text her a week before any event I'm planning, still very much unprepared she always says to me, "Don't worry I got it. I have some ideas I'll send to you." She always comes through and goes above and beyond. I can't wait to share more about her with you guys. FYI- this chef does NOT mess around. She trained at Le Cordon Bleu and is an expert at what she does!






Balloons:

Okay, I highly recommend Ballooms (clever name huh?!). They always show up and assemble all the balloons so quickly. They seriously make it look so easy, which I know it is not! I love adding a bunch of balloons as my main decor. I think it elevates the ambiance and takes the stress off of me.




Pinata & Other decor:

I teamed up with Feliz Modern, they're a really cute local boutique here in San Antonio. They did such a great job with our piñata, especially how they matched our theme for Antonio's Birthday. You seriously need to visit their store, (be prepared to spend along time in their store because they have cutest decorations and accessories). If you're not local, don't worry they have an online shop too! b



Here are some pictures from his 1st Birthday Photoshoot. It was so hard just selecting a handful because he's so dang cute! Enjoy!







XOXO,

We took our first out of state trip with Antonio in October and let me tell you we had a blast! Carlos had a work trip in New Orleans, so naturally we tagged along, and I'm so glad that we did.


I was a little nervous with Antonio's first flight. You guys, I'm such a nerd and you can definitely tell we are NEW PARENTS, because we thought we had everything packed and ready and we would have a smooth start to our trip....YEAH RIGHT! We had planned on leaving our house 3 hours before our flight departed, and we ended up leaving 2 hours before. Time was going by so fast that morning, but we were on a mission to get boarded early.


Well we arrived and got everything unloaded (I wish I would have taken a picture to show you guys just how much we packed. It was a bit much..lol). Our mission came to big HAULT when we were trying to check in because they asked us for identification for Antonio. My first thought was, he's a year old I don't have a passport for him, but hello I'm his mom! After 30 minutes of going back and forth we finally figured out a solution, lucky for me I had just downloaded our insurance app a week prior, because my co workers urged to join the reward system, thank goodness I did. All I had to do was show them proof of when Antonio was added to my insurance and then we were on our way. Once we boarded (which I barely made it in time for pre-boarding, Antonio did great. I had packed snacks and it was a short flight. Everyone thought he was so cute.

We stayed at the New Orleans Marriott hotel,
