Full time momager!

Oh blog, how I have missed you. I really have no excuse for not sharing all of the fun we have been up to. I do have some exciting, and late coming, news to share though. I'm a full time stay at home mom now!! Can't believe how lucky and blessed I am to get the opportunity to do this! It's definitely not for everyone, and without lots of play dates and projects I think I would go crazy, but I can honestly say I finally feel like I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing! Staying at home and taking care of my 10 babies is something I have dreamed about since I was a little girl. I was starting to think maybe it just wasn't going to happen, but with lots of trust in a providing, loving God and a super supportive Hubby, it did! Now I just need 9 more babies! ;)

Mason's first time eating rice cereal

We fed Mason rice cereal for the first time the other night. It was pretty stinking cute!

Nail Candy

I am loving this recent trend of painting your ring finger a different color from the rest.

I found this post and absolutely LOVED the take on this latest trend. I will definitely be sporting this color very soon! :)

Organizing Baby Clothes

I have been wanting to get these for Mason's closet for a while now. I am constantly looking for ways to make things more organized and easily accessible. However, I didn't think they were very cute and wanted to see if I could make my own. :)

Materials Needed:

1. Trace door knob hangers on scrap book paper (cut out 2 for each hanger)
2. Mod Podge Paper to hangers (front and back)
3. Add stickers for sizes and mod podge
4. Cut section on the hangers to hang on closet rod
5. Happy Organizing!

Final Product:

First Day of Summer

Happy Tuesday and Happy First Day of Summer too!!

It really is a happy Tuesday in the Valenti household! Mason and I started our morning with a nice long walk with our sweet friends Lindsey and Jack. Notice I said walk. Our intention at the beginning of summer was to work on project....Make Bailey a runner. Well, that didn't work. I have decided I hate running. There are some things we just aren't ever good at, right? So walking it is.

After our walk, Mason and I came home and I enjoyed a very yummy green smoothie! On quite a few of my favorite blogs they talk about green smoothies and various recipes, so I thought I would give them a try. They. Are. Yummy! Mine consisted of... a handful of spinach, frozen blueberries, half a frozen banana, dark chocolate almond milk, and peanut butter for protein and a little thickening! If you're thrown off by the spinach, don't worry, because you can't even taste it! (I would love to have pictures to show you but my Hubby took my memory card to work. ;) Stinkin' Hubby!)

Mason and I have a very busy day ahead of us. Lots of cuddles, playing, smiles, and nap time!

Then, for the main event, tonight is..... Date Night!!!!!

I'm not gonna lie, I am SO excited for date night! Although I will miss little man terribly, and he will probably be what we talk about most, I'm excited for some adult time. :) Mason must have known this, because for Mother's Day he got me Michael Buble tickets!! Such a smart baby, he is! :)

I hope the rest of you have a great day, as will!

Day at the Spa

Not to brag or anything ;) but this is where I spent my morning. It was pure heaven!

I enjoyed a very relaxing manicure and pedicure, (I must add, once you go shellac, you don't go back)

followed by an hour of this.....

Have I said yet that it was pure heaven??

I am a very thankful wife! On Wednesday, my super sweet Hubby surprised me with this spa day and a certificate thanking me for being such a great mommy and wife. How did I get so lucky??

Now we are off to pick out patio furniture for our new deck!!! I see many summer nights being spent on our back deck this summer. :)
