Photo Dump Wednesday: And so March begins

The month of March has been an interesting month. In my February post, I talked about the warm weather. Well, in March, it got COLD! I mean, wicked cold as they stay in MA. 

So here are some pictures so far from the month of March. 

Here is JOE and JAE's PAG doll wearing the matching Capella African Print Dress. Every now and then, JOE agrees to be my model. It doesn't happen very often but it does once in a purple moon. And often, I have to "encourage" her with the promise of a dessert :-).

And yes, that's her hair. It is growing so much and so well! She has also been MUCH better when doing her hair.

If you follow my personal page on Instagram, you know I have been doing my best to stay healthier. I've been logging in my daily 10k steps EVERY week in addition to exercising 4-times a week. It hasn't been easy but I am doing it. 
The hardest part is watching what goes in my mouth. And THAT is where I need to work harder. 
Here is one of my delicious lunches. YUM! 

The best compliment I get as a business owner is when someone sends me a picture of one of my products in action. A mom sent me this picture. Her daughter received the PAG doll set and outfit as a gift. She got the full set which came with a bed and blanket and she loves her doll. It really brightens my day when I receive these.

Me and my mini me goofing around :-).

One weekend, we put JAE down for her afternoon nap. This little girl REFUSED to take a nap. When I said "close your eyes and lay down in bed!" This is what I got. It was so cute that I had to snap a picture of her.

It was a pink sunday! Have you had a chance to check out our weekly vlog? If not, go check it out. I have also added a page to the header with links to past videos incase you are ever bored :-D.

A couple of weekends ago, we attended a birthday party. My awesome JOE decided to take my camera and take pictures because I was busy helping JAE. I love the way I look through my eyes :-D.

J and I have been trying to do lunches once a week. Last week, we met up at Chili's' for lunch. We ordered dessert and this salted caramel lava cake was EVERYTHING!

I mean, it was way more delicious than some desserts I have had at higher end restaurants.

The next few pictures feature a conversation between me and JOE. 
Me: Why is that crate on your head?
JOE: Because I'm a magician!
Apparently, magicians are basket cases 😒😦😕.

Last week, we celebrated International Women's week. This was my favorite social media post.

JOE who is always ready to put on a show for me came over last week during family time to show me her "Purple Elsa outfit".

I love her imagination. 

JAE was having a growth spurt so we brought her into our bed since she couldn't sleep and was restless. This is the sight I woke up to. My babies!

Another conversation with my little JOE.

JOE: Mommy come see this!
Me: What now? 😒
JOE: I built something...
Me: Ok? 🤔🤔 What is it now?
JOE: I made a go kart for Mr. Bear!
Me: 🙂
I'm pretty impressed that she used my finished body lotion containers to make a go kart. And it came complete with its own steering wheel! 

I love these body butter products from Bath and Body Works. They no longer carry these in stores so I often have to order a bunch online whenever they are having sales.

Proud of her accomplishment. Check out the steering wheel on kart.

Since we have had a cold month of March, we haven't gone on a family work. So I try to do more walking every hour. In addition, when I am able to, I play the Wii with the kids. Check out JOE's scores. I am pretty good at bowling and my 4 year old gave me a run for my money. Yes I beat her but still, check out her solid score! #Impressed.

And birthday DIY is in full effect. Can you guess what her birthday theme is this year?

My little JAE is at that age where it can be challenging to take her to a restaurant. Well, J convinced me to go to the mall. I went and honestly, she was a handful. She didn't want to sit still even when we went to eat. So J and I had to take turns eating. Check out that innocent face :-). 

Last Sunday was a red Sunday. We love our coordinating colors! 

Hope your March is off to an awesome start. Spring is here and it is allergy season. This will be the first year in almost 5-years that I can actually take something for my allergies. Yay!!!

Have a fabulously blessed new month and remember to be kind to strangers


  1. I can't believe how the weather changed so drastically. I hope it is over!

    That caramel lava cake looks amazing!! Chilis is my favorite chain restaurant!

    JOE's hair is growing so long, wow! Loving all the pictures :)

  2. I always enjoy your photo dump Wednesday. It's nice to get the story behind the pictures :).

    JOE and her PAG doll are just the cutest. I will definitely get one of those for Emilia when she is a bit older.

    I am so loving your hair, you are doing such a great job with it.
