HAPPY VALENTINE’S EVERYONE!! So, we made it to Texas last week. I’ll post more about our road trip and traveling with an infant soon! In the meantime, enjoy these adorable photos of Livi. She’s three months old today! 

This little girl is an absolute hoot! I can’t get enough of her. Her daddy says, she’s my Valentine’s present πŸ™‚ Liviana is so animated as you’ll see in these photos. She loves to stick out her tongue. And is already arguing with her mommy. Yes, she still sleeps with us and I wouldn’t have it any other way. She is the happiest baby, but not a morning person…It takes her a few minutes to wake up. She starts with her morning stretches. Then she’s all smiles!

She tolerates tummy time longer now. And she’s rolling over on her own!!

We are staying with my older sister until we find a place. She stuck these Valentine hearts on Livi during our photoshoot, perfect little touch!

Then her cousin Mia joined in on the fun! Mia can’t get enough Livi time. πŸ’•

Remember to tell those you love how much they mean to you. Even if it’s just a hug or kiss. Those little gestures mean so much! Everyday should be spent letting your family and friends know you love them. And I love you all as well. Thank you for stopping by!!

No, I’m not pregnant again. Which seems to be everyone’s first question nowadays…It wouldn’t be a bad thing. But, I just had one and I’d like to get to know her a bit more before I start poppping out another one.Anyways, I have some BIG news that I can finally share with my readers. Are ya ready for it? Okay, here goes…our family will be hittin’ the road on February 3rd to move back to Texas!! Yes, you read that right. We are moving to Texas!! Albi received an awesome job opportunity  as a videographer/producer and he’s stoked about it. We will be relocating to Houston. I’ll be closer to my sisters. And our parents will only be an hour and half drive away. Defiantly beats a 24 hour drive or 3 hour plane ride. When I found out I was pregnant it made more sense to be closer to family. Plus, the extra help is nice. 😊I will be documenting the road trip on my Instragram stories. So, if you’re interested follow me here! My older sister  Venice and our good friend Rick will be helping us drive. Also, any tips for road tripping with an infant is greatly appreciated. You can share those in the comment section down below. Here’s to a glorious new year so far, cheers!

We had a great time while Albi’s mom was in town. She was a big help and Liv finally got to meet her Nani! Since the sun was out on her last day in Cali. We decided to show Miza where Albi and I got married. 

Three years ago we had a small wedding on the bluffs in Malibu. A few members of our family and close friends were able to join us in celebrating our relationship. It was a beautiful ceremony that I will always remember. We hadn’t been back since and this time we got to bring our newest addition in the family. 

Afterwards, we went to one of our favorite Japanese BBQ restaurants called Gyu-Kaku. Miza loved the food! My favorite are the garlic noodles. There are multiple locations in Los Angelss, but if you’re in the valley. I’d recommend the Burbank location. We normally would go to the one in Sherman Oaks, but the parking and the restaurant can get a bit cramped…

The day turned out to be one for the books. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, the company was enjoyable and Liviana was a good girl! 

If you’re looking for a breathtaking wedding location. I highly recommmend Malibu Bluffs Park. We found the spot hiking and fell in love. Plus, it was free and you can’t beat that! 


We’ve been experiencing more rain than usual here in Los Angeles. And I’m not complaining one bit. Being a Texan I absolutely love the rain, especially thunderstorms. I enjoy sitting on a screened-in porch listening to rain hit a tin roof. And maybe sipping on a glass of Pinot or a Stella…

Yesterday, the weather warmed up to about 72 degrees and the sun decided to show his face. So, Albi suggested that we have a lil family time at the park. We also got to hangout a bit with our second family. Albi threw the football around with his little brother that he sponsors. He’s been part of Big Brothers Big Sisters for 4 years now. It’s definitely been a joy to be a positive influence for a child. We look forward to more of our lil bro’s achievements.

Thanks to Liviana’s Nani for her love to capture every moment.πŸ’•


Yesterday, a couple of things happened that was a big deal for us. Here goes:

  1. Liviana didn’t cry once while we were grocery shopping. I put her in her Lillebaby and she went right to sleep! Thank you Lucie for the recommendation, you’re an angel.
  2. Liviana slept all by herself during nap time. She’s defiantly a stomach sleeper and I would check on her throughout her nap. She did so good, I was very proud! But, felt sad at the same time. She didn’t need me…

While L napped, I got to enjoy some wine and eat a warm dinner at my own pace. After that I didn’t know what to do. So, I showered and crawled into bed to watch L sleep. Albi joined me and we engaged inΒ a whispering conversation and snuggles. It’s fun when you have to be quiet. You get to laugh so hard without noise until your tummy hurts. Laughing is the BEST with my best friend.
