Vacation, vacation, vacation!

The last week has been so hectic. Starting with the unpleasant - it started with a minor fender bender at a mall parking lot. Fortunately nothing happened to our brand new car and no one was hurt. The owner of the other car was talking on the phone during the accident and she continued talking for a good couple of minutes even after the collision as if nothing happened! Tsk tsk.

Then we found out our old washing machine was leaking to the floor below so we replaced it and upgraded to one with a higher capacity. Hooray to being able to wash more in one load. Makes such a difference in time efficiency.

On the brighter side our shipment finally arrived (yay!), so I've been busy unpacking and setting up our home. It's so nice to have Noah's things like his high chair, feeding gear, strollers etc. A little pat on the back for my packing skills - I shipped this Crate & Barrel dinnerware set and none of them broke, in fact all the breakables stayed intact!

Shipment aside, a few furniture pieces we  ordered online arrived as well so we've been frantically putting the furniture together so we would have additional storage space.

Last week came and went in the blink of an eye. Today we left for the Mediterranean coast. Up until the plane took off I was fantasizing about staying behind so I could finnish up my list of things to do before going on another trip in 2.5 weeks. But now that I'm here at this gorgeous resort and basking in 80s weather (high 20s in Celsius) I have no regrets.

We are staying at a seaside resort, our room has a stunning view of the Mediterranean and tonight I plan on falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing. Projects? Things to do? Psshh. Pure relaxation is my goal in the next few days.

This is the view from our room, unfortunately my camera phone doesn't do this place any justice.

Starting with our right side

I was trying to capture our view of the outdoor pool, lounge chairs by the beach and the dock. Too bad you can't tell from this picture.

Was impressed by the garden (background) on our way to the indoor pool.

The next few days are all about rest and relaxation.

Where is your favorite place to go for R&R?

Noah's Photo of the Week No. 3

There's something about baby feet that I've always found absolutely irresistable. I rememeber when my sister was a baby I loved playing with her feet. Now that I have Noah, I once again have perfect little feet to play with, or more like attack.

I cant get enough of smelling Noah's sweaty toes, and munching on his feet and tickling them. I love watching his toes curl, or even better, when they fan out and separate like a garden rake. What a skill! When he's older I'm going to miss being able to hold his entire foot in one hand and having unlimited rights to sniffing and biting them at my will.

Mommy & Baby Look: Sick n Shopping

Baby N and I have been sick for a week so sorry about the lack of posts.

I'm no professional fashion blogger but I do enjoy putting outfits together for Noah and I, and I love sharing them with you. Over the summer I found this Paul Frank shirt on sale for $4 and because it's a long sleeve shirt it's only been recently that Noah has been able to wear it. I love the painted on necktie and jacket with cute little buttons. Noah is also wearing a separate collared shirt underneath to give school boy outfit full effect - doesn't he look like a little man?

On Baby N: Petite Bateau white body suit with collar, Paul Frank necktie + jacket bodysuit, Old Navy v-neck sweater
On Momma N: J Crew scarf & sweater

Happy Monday!

Mommy & Baby Look: Plaid on Plaid

Noah has a plaid collared shirt which I purchased way back when he was 3 months old. He's pretty much outgrown it but I love the shirt so much I still let him wear it, though I make sure its worn with a sweater or another layer so it's not so obvious that its short on him.

Anywho, the other day I was unpacking our storage bins and found a super old plaid shirt of mine (circa late 1990s). I can't believe I've hung onto it for this long, but I guess I'm happy I did bc apparently plaid is in fashion again. Since mine is similar to Noah's I thought it would be fun if we both wore our shirts. It made daddy jealous that he doesn't own a plaid shirt :)

You can see how short the shirt is on him hehe. Noah looks different in this pic, must be camera distortion.
