Room Decor: Work In Process

Haydn got this mini New York set from True and Brave her very first Christmas. I loved it so much, I knew it was more of a display piece than a toy Haydn would use for her future barbies. Auntie Nina gave her the New York book right under it. They are just perfect for Haydn's room.

Zoë's room is a lot more girly than Haydn's. It has all the main things, just needs some extra things here and there and her room is pretty much done :). She doesn't really care about room decor though, just toys toys and more toys.

Zoë Loves Technology

Manalili girls... like any other child... LOVES technology!

The girls have a cough that I think was passed down from their cousin... so staying home and cuddling is on the schedule for today.

Pumpkin Patch

I know Halloween was so long ago, but I was going through our images and I couldn't help but share this. We went to look for pumpkins twice last year and Haydn loved it being her first time. Too bad we got there when it closed but didn't stop us from remembering this time in our lives with another first time experience checked off my list

Room Decor: A Work In Process

I've been wanting to decorate the girl's rooms for such a long time but never had a room to decorate. Knowing both girls were going to have their own room, ideas were just stirring up and I'm so thankful I can hang their coming home outfits. They are so small and can fit on almost all of Haydn's dolls but now on display in their rooms. Zoë's is the yellow one with the tiny belt. It was from the Long Beach Antique Market and I think I was only 3 months pregnant when we bought it. Going to Flea Markets with the Quinal's is always fun! The pink one is Haydn's and it was a gift from Auntie Nissy which according to Haydn is always sleeping!!! Auntie Nissy works the PM shift so she is usually sleeping when we visit. I love Tea! Remembering when I put it on her seems just like yesterday... She was swimming in it! Haha! But I was so glad she came home in that! I will never get rid of these outfits and hopefully their kids can wear them too!

Happy Friday, Hello Weekend!

It was a good morning and quite productive. I was able to clean and get ready for day two of Yoga! It feels so incredible to stretch and sweat! The only time I really worked out was when I was getting married and well... four years and two kids later... it was time! Zoë was playing in the ocean...

and Haydn was ready to join in the fun

But got bored after 2 minutes! haha... but it was a good 2 minutes of holding a pose :)

Time to clean up, shower, and get Haydn ready for her nap. I already feel my body remembering the lost muscles we haven't used in awhile! Maybe P90X tomorrow. P90X makes me nervous!!!
