Fall is here!

Fall is here and like the leaves change color so will our lives in many ways! First off Lola turned 6 months yesterday! Crazy how time flies by I cant believe I have a 6 month old haha! Here she is ready for fall! She had her 6 month shots today and still is smiling away!

So as I mentioned before change is upon us and with change comes new adventures. Just when I start to get use to this staying at home thing, we decide it will be best financially for me to get a job. Now it started out looking for a part time job but I found one that is the perfect hours for our family and I will be able to be at home with the girls during the day as well so we decided for me to take this full time position. I am quite excited and cant wait to get back into phlebotomy! I know i have been kind of absent lately but I have been consumed by the job hunting and spending some time with my family! This weekend my mom came out and visited us with my nephew! We had such a great time... we went goodwill shopping, because I love a good bargain plus it was 50% off day this past saturday! woohoo score! This is my mom and I ready to do some shopping!
Here is my nephew Dallas and Gwen ready to shop as well! We also stopped at Mimi's Cafe and ate some yummy food and drank these heavenly mimosas! My favorite was the hibiscus flavored one, who knew there was even such a thing!
We also decided to rent a movie for the kids called Epic... it was so cute and the kids loved it! Oh and the best part about Saturday night is we bought the kids mexican jumping beans! If you ever want to keep a kid entertained for about an hour straight get them some of these babies! wabam! We named them Jose, Cinderella, Juanita, and Jasmin.
Sunday came and we pulled out the Halloween decorations and decked the whole house out! Halloween is my fave holiday! Plus my birthday is only like a week before it so I always end up doing some sort of halloween party. I seriously think we might have more Halloween decorations than even Xmas! Thats how much this house loves Halloween! I will probably do a whole seperate post on my house decorations with some pics and also our costumes... would that even be something your guys would be interested in? Let me know! What are you guys going to be this year? Gwen keeps changing her mind like every other day. It went from Rapunzel to a snow queen in like a day, So we won't commit to anything yet haha! Anyways I will leave you with this... "Change is inevitable. Growth is optional."  John C. Maxwell. So make it your choice to grow with change and to roll with life's punches! Peace out mamasitas!

Strep and Teething a mother's nightmare!

SOOO I have been gone for a few days, because upon coming home from California my babies were struck with fevers, teething, strep, and massive diarrhea! Sorry TMI! but all you mommies no what I'm talking about right?? I can officially say I am worn down! I look like a wreck and I'm even lucky to get a shower in at his point haha...
I am not ashamed that I have no makeup on and my hair is a hot mess! That's ok cuz all moms have these days right??? ok see a pattern here haha I need some reassuring that this is normal and I will be ok and get through this. At this point needless to say I am stressed but that's normal right???
Last night I spent three whole hours in the emergency room with my Gwenny and turns out she has strep!!! Poor baby I have had this and it just aint cool! And Lola has a tooth coming in and is crankier than heck! So right now my mommy belt consist of Orajel, Powerade (the pink kind), Tylenol, and cough drops!
and these cough drops are our favorite because they don't taste like medicine! haha
plus my grandpa use to give me these when I was a little girl and I know they are the best! and only the best for my little princesses :) 
Lastly I will leave you with these 2 sleeping angels! FINALLY sleeping angels!

Hope you guys have a good week and remember EVERYTHING will be ok!!! 
Until next time chicas lots of love and orajel your way :)

Labor Day Cali trip!

So I am originally from Orange County California and all my family lives out there. I come from a big hispanic family so we are use to always being around each other and doing things together, but since we have all disbursed and moved to different places it makes it so hard to get together all at the same time! SOOOO my mom was so kind and invited me for a girls trip to cali and we packed our kiddos in the mom van haha and was off to cali! Let me just say this was so last minute like she called me saturday at like 1 pm and was gone by 7 pm (she lives like 2 hours away from me) so she had to pick me up first! We didn't look at the weather and ran into major rain storms! We were so scared the whole time I was guiding my mom on the road, like " your doing good mom, you got it, your still in the lines!!" I dunno if it was helping her or not but it made me feel better! Finally we made it to cali and when I walked into my Titi's (aunt's) house my grandma was so so happy to see us! It was a good surprise because she had no idea we were coming. The whole weekend was fun to watch my kids play with their cousins and visit with my family. Made me miss the old days when we always saw each other! Every morning us ladies started the coffee machine because we Puertoricans love our coffee in the am!  Honestly we didn't even do much while we were there but just being at the house with everyone was so nice and was a great break from the norm. I did miss Tony quite a bit and he was wanting pictures of the girls while we were gone. I had to send him something so here are some of the pics he got!
 Gwen in the background with her Starbucks! I swear she is such a lil diva! She is the Paris Hilton of the house haha!
 Lola just chilling in the car! If tony was a girl this is what he would look like haha she looks so much like her daddy! There is no denying this one :)
And last this is my Abuela! Gosh I love her so much! After I had Lola she came and stayed with us for like 3 months and helped me with the baby and settling into the new house. Lola was so happy to have her Mamalinda to hold her again after not seeing her for 2 months!

Welcome! My name is Chantil!

So this post if my first blog! I have been on pinterest looking at other mommy's blogs and I was like "HMMM...This could be fun" so here I am introducing myself to the world! HELLO! Name is Chantil and I have 2 Lovely girls and an Amazing Boyfriend. I recently have started this new adventure of being a stay at home mom. Yah, not sure if I'm digging it so far. Don't get me wrong I love my children and my newest addition is so much fun, BUT! I am so use to always working and being social with people and sitting at home doing these home maker things such, cooking, changing diapers, laundry, and the occasional pinterest/facebook time can get a lil monotonas and lonely! So I am here to share my adventure and maybe see if anyone can relate to my life and new job as being super mommy!
My littlest looks a bit grumpy but I dont blame her it was like 110 degrees outside on the 4th of July in Phoenix AZ. But anywho this is my family! I love them so much. Going from left to right Me, Lola, Tony, and Gwen. To tell you a little about each of us Lola is 5 months old and let me tell you I am so in love with her. She is such a blessing and is the glue to our little family. She brought all of us together and has made us one happy family. Tony is my boyfriend and he is strong, smart, and my rock. He completes me and keeps me grounded. He is the calm rational one and Im the high strung worrying about everything all the time. But together we make and awesome team. I never thought I would find such an amazing man. Then there is my Gwenny she is cooky and funny. Always has something to say and soo smart! She is my mini me, such a girly girl and has been through so much with me in her little short 5 years of life! Because of her I am the person and the mommy I am today! And then me, I am use to being in charge and a bit bossy but I wear my heart on my sleeve and sometimes get hurt in the process but I would rather be that person to love and live life to the fullest than be to worried about getting hurt or missing out on awesome opportunities! Before I had Lola I was a phlebotomist YES A VAMPIRE!! Its funny thats the reaction I get from people when I tell them what I do hehe! I love being in health care and its a passion of mine to help people! I want to go to school for nursing and plan to do so once Lola gets a little older! So for now Im going to try and be the best mommy I can be to my babies and take care of the homefront! Until next time I hope you guys stick around to see my adventure and the things I get my hands into!
                                                    Me and my Lola!
My gwenny she has an amazing smile!
