I have been #MIA on my blog for a month now. In my last blog, I shared that we just moved into our new home. It was a restless couple of weeks for us, especially for me, because I had to deal with five children (two boys and three dogs), while Sean is working. Many times, I felt like pulling my hair off while continuing unboxing our stuff. Who doesn’t feel like doing it when you are doing a lot, and you are super tired? Well, I survived every day without pulling my hair off, and I’m grateful for it.
Three weeks later, after we moved into our new home, Sean and I tied the knot! And because of the #pandemic, we decided to have a quick wedding ceremony with only a few family members and Sean’s best friend, but it was beautiful with a little bit of comedy (my little one decided to use the restroom during the ceremony, so we had to wait for him. Lol! It was a beautiful day – a very special day, indeed!
We are living in this beautiful home for a month and a couple of days now. Wow, time flies! It feels like we just moved in here a few days ago. Peaceful area. Friendly neighbors. We are witnessing the sunsets right from our living room. Fresh air and seeing deers in the backyard too! This place is perfect. This house is ours and our forever home! So grateful for everything God has given us. Thankful for the challenges, and so grateful for the blessings as well ♥♥♥.
If you got engaged or someone you know gets engaged, you know what’s next. It’s time to start thinking about creating wedding invitations. So, here are ten customizable wedding invitation ideas for you or for someone you know.
I know this post about Mother’s Day is a little late but that doesn’t bother me because for me every day is Mother’s day. By the way, before I go ahead I just hope all moms had the best Mother’s day.
I had a really wonderful Mother’s Day. I didn’t expect anything from my family, in fact, on that day I totally forgot that it was Mother’s day. I was fixing coffee that morning while attending my little boys eating breakfast. About thirty (30) minutes later, Sean woke up and he was being so sneaky. He called the boys and then they called me. Seriously, I just realized that they got me something and that explained all the sneakiness around the house the day before Mother’s Day, hahaha!!
When I opened the gift bag they gave me I was like……..YES!!, Everything that was in there was the stuff that I saw and really liked at The Spice & Tea Exchange store a few days before Mother’s day. Hmmm, someone was being really sneaky. Anyway, I love them! My boys were more excited for me to finish reading the message on the card so they can have it and play with it. They found those chipmunks in the card really entertaining. Oh, kiddos!
Last Friday was my U.S. Naturalization Oath Taking ceremony in New Orleans. It’s a five (5) hours drive from my town. We left Thursday after I picked up my boys at school. We arrived in New Orleans a little after 9 p.m. Checked in late at the hotel we stayed in for the night. The hotel we stayed at is called Brent House Hotel. This hotel is attached to Ochsner Medical Center located on Jefferson Highway near Uptown New Orleans. From the hotel, it was only a 15-minute drive to where my Oath Taking ceremony took place.
We arrived at the USCIS facility before nine (9) in the morning. The ceremony started a little after ten (10) and was over at about twelve (12) noon. I wasn’t sure how the other applicants felt that day but I was a little emotional. After I applied, I waited eleven (11) months for this very special day. After living in the USA for a decade, who wouldn’t get emotional?
AFTER THE CEREMONY
Now it’s time to celebrate! My boys are so ready to explore around New Orleans. They are loving this busy city so far.
