Let’s Get Real…holiday edition!




Hey friends…so it is the holiday season. And we are officially on vacay! So we shall be away from tomorrow until sometime in the new year.

Thanks for being patient and understanding that we too have vacation time, and get to spend time with our families.

Have a wonderful holiday, sending much of our love to your families this wonderful season!


Thank you for reading and see you in the new year!

Lucky me!





I have been begging M to do a few small write ups of what it’s like to being a new Mom. So when I was over there the other day…and snapped a few pics of this little monkey, we really got to hang out (for a full hour of quiet time). So as the breastfeeding and changing and napping occurred, I got to ask M a few things about being a new Mom for the first month, and things that she has learned already….

Hey babe!

Oh my goodness…

She is so lovely. Tiny…Little…Beautiful…mixed little Asian monkey!

The sister and I finally got to meet her this past weekend!

We were literally at the mercy of her serious appetite, and sleepy schedule but even for the short amount of time we got to hold this teeny tiny babe – it was lovely.

M is doing great and such a good Mum already, and her hubby B is a serious baby whisperer.

The hilarious thing is M was totally not ok with having so much pink, and yet the little monkey was pretty much in pink head to toe (because of all the gifts they got). Funny how your serious “preferences” before hand go right out the window with what is easiest and closest.

There is just so much love for them, I cannot wait to babysit – I actually said seriously, any time (just maybe not overnight).

LoveLOVElove..Happy Monday!






M had her baby this morning!!!! 

Eeek we are so excited!!!!

I am not sure if I can give anything away, but they had an adorable, healthy baby girl! 

She/I will do the official announcement later this week/whenever that lady has time!

But we just wanted to wish her + B all the best, and I bet that the little “monkey” is as wonderful as they are!

Sending them all our love!








Oh hey guys, don’t mind us…we are just hanging out… waiting for a baby to arrive!

She seems to be taking her sweet time- huh!

Happy Tuesday!
