JJ is six months old today

I can't believe that is has been six months since our little man came into the world! He is growing way too fast! When I saw JJ for the first time it was like a new spot in my heart opened up. I started to feel a love that I never knew existed. I feel blessed everyday to be his mommy.

Our Six month old!

We leave tomorrow to Miami for a couple of days, to hang out with our family and friends. On Friday morning we leave to HAWAII!! We are going to visit my sister in law. Her hubby is also in the Marine Corps and they are stationed there.

Weekends = Football

Well at least in my house it does! Our weekend revolves around the UM games on Saturday and the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Everything we do has to be scheduled according the game. If you haven't already guessed it the hubby loves him some football!!

Little JJ takes after his daddy. He loves watching football with his daddy!

Go Dolphins!!

By the way I know that our seasons are not going too great right now, but we are true Miami fans forever! I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Fall Wreath

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love fall because the weather, it is not too hot or too cold it is the perfect temperature! Well at least here in South Carolina it is. Back home in Miami it is still feels like summer. Since today is the first day of fall, I decided to show you a crafting project I did about two weeks ago.

I got my inspiration from a picture I saw on the Southern Living website. Mine looks nothing like the one on the website. But I think it came out pretty good.

Southern Living Pumpkin Wreath
The supplies I used were:
  • Wreath
  • Hot Glue gun
  • Mini Pumpkins
  • Silk Fall leaves
  • And any little decoration you would like to add
All you have to do is to hot glue Pumpkins on to the wreath. Use the silk leaves to fill in any areas that look empty. You can make this your own, so feel free to add any other fall decorations that you want!

Happy Crafting!!!

With Love,
