Styling My Toddler.

Hello Beautiful! I hope you all are having an amazing week so far. Today I want to talk about my addiction to buying baby clothes. HAHA! It really is an addiction. I can’t stop buying my squishy bear clothes. I love dressing him up in cute clothes, whether it be preppy to sporty. Not to toot my own horn, but he can rock everything he wears. Every time I dress him, I get all giddy and start laughing because he looks so flipping adorable and looks like a little man. I thought having a boy was going to be boring to dress up, granted girls do have a lot more stuff to work with, but I find is so much fun shopping and picking outfits for my son. Since the day he was born I would always dress him up in cute outfits. Except the first two weeks we both stayed in pajamas all day, but I mean I was exhausted and it was my first time being a mommy. But, once I got the hang of it and I was able to peel myself off the bed, it was time to get cute. (For the both of us, I was looking rough). He has always had little baby shoes, I know some people think is stupid to buy baby shoes, I don’t care. Shoes made his whole outfit. Granted he has more shoes than me and my husband, but I can’t help it. I seriously get so much joy making my toddler look stylish. My favorite stores when was a baby was Jack & Janie, Gymboree, Carters, & OshGoshBgosh. His clothes now are mainly from Old Navy and Baby Gap, there is no beating their prices on cute and stylish clothes. I never pay full price for his clothes. They are always having amazing sales. I get so much for so little. I love those places. It also helps that his grandma constantly send him cute clothes. He honestly has more clothes and shoes than us. Who else has so much fun dressing their babies? Are there other stores you like shopping from?

Set Goals & Crush them!

Hello Beautifuls! I am writing on here today to talk about goals. I know we are in the second week of January, but it’s never to late to set some goals. It does not matter if you want to set them in the middle of the year, month, or week. Goals are goals. Set them whenever you feel like you want to. This is the first year I have ever made a “dream/goals board”. I wanted to visualize my goals and dreams and put out good vibes out in the world. I pray everyday and declare my goals will come true in the name of Jesus Christ. Staying positive, keeping faith, and never giving up are key in making your goals happen. The two main goals I have set for this year are to travel with my little family and reach 500 followers on my blog. The other goals are to revamp my style and wardrobe, start a healthier lifestyle, and going back home to visit my family and friends. I am very excited for this year. This is going to be our year! I hope you all accomplish all your goals this year. XOXO.

Let the Tantrums Begin.

Hey pretty mama’s! I hope you all had an amazing holiday with your family and friends. I am sure if you have a toddler, or just kids in general, they made the holiday stress a little more stressful. I now know what my mother went through with all kids. Lord sure blessed her with a lot, A LOT of patience. My beautiful mother had four kids, one girl and three boys. How she stayed sane? I have no idea. I am the only girl and I have three younger brothers. I am 5 years apart from my first baby brother and they are each one year apart from each other. She had triple the tantrums at once, I was an angel. HA! Just kidding. I was older so I helped out the best I could. I do not know how we are still alive, after seeing my only child throw his tantrums. All the time. I just do not know how my mother handled the all 4 of us. My beautiful baby boy likes to throw his tantrums at the most inconvenient and random times. I can not even go get my mail at the post office without him running away and getting mad when I tell him no. Ah… the life of a toddler is so hard. I get a lot of complements on the pictures I take of my son. They say “awe, he is so cute and photogenic”, “he’s a natural, he knows how to pose”, and my favorite is “you should put him modeling”. All these compliments are nice, but they have no idea how hard it was to take just one good picture. When he see’s the camera, he knows I am about to take a picture and he will say “cheese”.  This happens about twenty percent of the time. The other eighty percent, I have to either chase after him or I have to wait until he is done throwing a fit. I have to take multiple pictures to get one or two good ones. So, there is no way on earth I would put a photographer through his craziness. This being the reason why I take our family pictures, if he is in a mood and throwing himself on floor then we can try again tomorrow. I can only hope he is just getting rid of all his temper tantrums now and he will not go through the terrible two’s. Yeah, right.Who am I kidding? I bet those terrible two’s are going to be kicking my butt. Motherhood is full of different experiences. Although, he throws these crazy 10 second tantrums, what toddler does not. He is the most sweetest and happiest little boy ever. I am constantly amazed by how much is growing and learning. I cannot picture my life without him. How do you all deal with these little temper tantrums? Do you have any tips or tricks? Let me know.

Family Funday.

Today was a fun day for the Boucha family. We went on a little trip to Hiroshima, it is about an hour away from where we live. We have gone to Hiroshima before, but today we went to this gigantic Japanese mall. I mean it was huge! It was three stories high, they had the cutest shops. I was obsessed. If only I could fit in their clothes. But that did not stop me from doing a little shopping. Most of the shops were having a sale, I could not pass that up. I bought four cute snow globe ornaments. I love snow globes, I think they are so magical. There was no way I could not buy these adorable ornaments. I also bought a mug with the initials “Y” on it. I was never lucky on finding my initials back in the states, but in Japan I find them everywhere. Yay! There was this sponge shaped like a popsicle, it was perfect to wash Jason’s sippy cups. Lastly, I bought the cutest spoon and stirrer for my mother in law. As soon as I saw it I told my husband, “mama law would love that.” She loves butterflies, so now when she comes to Japan her coffee will look pretty. Not only did they have the cutest shops, but they a lot of delicious food. We had a hard time deciding what to eat. We finally chose to eat chinese food. I had spicy rice with chicken, it was delicious. For dessert we went to a Hawaiian themed restaurant. We ate a shaved chocolate and banana pancakes. So yummy. Jason enjoyed them a lot. It was an overall great family day. Hope you all will keep up with my blogs and follow our little adventures in Japan.

Shopping in Japan.

When we were back in the states and my husband would have duty, Target was my favorite place to be. Since moving to Japan, I have been deprived from Target,  I miss strolling the Target aisles, especially the dollar section. Roaming the aisles helped me pass the time so I would not get bored and alone at home. There is only one store on base, the MCX, now do not get me wrong the MCX is great and has great deals but there is not much to see. One of my favorites stores in Japan is this magical dollar store called, Daiso. I call it the dollar store on crack. It kind of puts the dollar store in the states to shame. Obviously, the merchandise they sell is Japanese, but they sell the cutest things; from toilet scrubbers and house goods to cheap Disney things. I love that place, but it still can not replace Target. I think the japanese heard our cry because they opened a store called, Nitori, it is like a japanese Target. Since, my husband dreads coming to stores with me, Jason and I took a little trip to check it out. It was not as good as Target, but it did the trick. They had the cutest christmas decorations and decor. I will definitely be going back to stroll the aisles and pretend it is Target. Although, I do not have a Target or a Hobby Lobby and I have to wait forever and a day for my packages to arrive. Japan has been an amazing, once in a life time experience. Many more new experiences and adventures to come.

A Gift From Above.

Children are a blessing. They may not be planned but they are a gift from God. I am beyond grateful for my squishy bear. There was a time I thought I would not have the chance to carry my own child. At the age of 18, I was told I would not be able to conceive. This news broke my heart into a million pieces. With tears in my eyes, I told my parents they would not get any grandkids from me. They looked at me and told me not to be discouraged and that God will bless me with a bundle of joy on day. All I can think to myself is “how can they say that? I took a test and it proved I could not get pregnant.” I could not get over the fact I could not get pregnant, it upset me to no end. Why could I not get pregnant? There are so many women getting pregnant that are drug addicts, women who do not want a baby and get abortions, yet there are women who are trying and would give anything to be able to carry their child. As the years went by I accepted the fact I would not be able to start my little family. However, my Almighty Lord  had different plans. On my 22nd birthday, my husband and I went to Raleigh to visit my in-laws and celebrate my birthday. As I was sitting on the couch my mother in law looks at me and says; “you are glowing, you need to take a pregnancy test.” I looked at her with a “are you joking” face and told her, ” you know I can not get pregnant, right?.” Long story short, my husband went out to buy me a test. I took the test, since I thought it would come out negative I started to get a little depressed. I was confident it would not come out positive, I mean why would this test be any different from the other tests I have taken. A few minutes go by, I walk out and ask “what does 2 lines mean ?” I was in such disbelief. Like holy moly. It finally happened I am going to have a baby. I was so overjoyed and blessed to be able to carry a baby for 9 months. On June 5th, 2016, my handsome baby boy came into the world. He looked just like his daddy. Everyday I thank God for blessing me with my squishy bear. He is the most happy, hyper, loving, smiley, and funny toddler ever. I wish I could snuggle him all day, everyday but he is Mr. Independent always running around all over the place. But when he lets me snuggle him, I enjoy and embrace every second of it. he truly is my little angel from above. If you are going through a hard time and are trying to start your family, do not get discouraged. It will happen at the most unexpected time. There are always other ways to start your family. Just have faith.
