Happy Valentine’s Day!

  Just a little love post from me to you. Hope you have a wonderful wonderful day today! We’re not one to celebrate Valentine’s day by going out for a romantic dinner etc but if there’s a special day to celebrate love, kindness, giving, and anything nice, we’re there! I cannot wait for the girls to come home. Again, we’re not having anything super special but a little extra love, yummy cupcakes from my favorite cake lady, cards and decors will make their end of the week (and start of their school break) extra lovely. Take care and I shall

Happy 10-years-old!!

Oh my, how did this ever happen? Our big girl, Emma, is TEN today!! First double digits, which she’s been so looking forward to! This morning we woke her up super early. Super early because dad leaves for work quite early in the morning and we wanted to surprise her together. So after scrambling looking for candles (I know I have some somewhere), we brought cupcakes, 10 tea-light candles on a tray, and presents at around 6:30 a.m. <– yes, this is super early for us who wakes up at 8 a.m. on a weekday. But despite being woken up,

WPlus9: Day 3 + Fabric Dolly

This Christmas I really feel like making all sorts of stuff. Whether I get to them is another story but I really am feeling it!! I have a few cute projects that I will share in the next few days but one I am super excited about is this one: A fabric doll for Jovie! And the pattern pieces are FREE! Aren’t they adorable? I am going to make a little Chloe — a short hair doll basically. And hope to get started cutting tomorrow night! I have the pdf files downloaded already. Wish me luck!! I also looked at

WPlus9: Day 2

Hiya! Hope my American friends had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We spent our in Amsterdam this year. We did lots of exploring, visited a few museums and for Thanksgiving dinner, we had our first Rijsstafel. Our mail pick-up schedule got mixed up last week and I just received my WPlus9 goodies today and WOW, another beautiful set by Dawn!! This month’s release is full of LOVE and since I always seem to be making something for the girls, I thought that today, I’d create a little something using the Valentine Wishes set + matching dies for my fab husband. It’s

Away

I am so excited about today! I am going away. To Belfast. Alone! No kids or husband. Just a couple girlie friends and I! Last time I went alone overnight with just the girls was last year. To London. We had a really fun time (and hoping my friend would get back to the hotel safely since she was Boris biking drunk in the middle of the night) but this trip, not only will it be a few nights more but it requires an airplane ride. I remember my first big going away after I had M. She was about

Home. Alone.

Journalist: So, what’s it like to be a stay-at-home-mom in the day time? Savitri: Blissfully dull! The girls have been in school for almost four weeks now. Since Jovie’s a June baby, she didn’t start full time from day one. Her first week, Thursday and Friday, she only went in the afternoon, 1:15-3:15p. The next week she went M-Fri 9a-12:30p and last week she went to school full-time, 9a-3:15p. Last week I made myself a schedule. Monday was grocery shopping and deep cleaning the downstairs. Tuesday I put more stuff from random boxes away and laundry. Wednesday I worked on
