Birthday, Work and Instagram!

Birthday, Work and Instagram!

Hello my Dear Friends,

I am SO over the winter blues and very ready for the nice and warm sunny rays. Aren’t we all though? Luckily, this week I will be able to enjoy some 60 degrees weather (close to 70s actually) and I am not complaining.

So what is new with me? We recently celebrated baby M’s first birthday. I know we all say it but seriously where did the year go? Just with a blink of an eye miss M is ONE year old and big sis A is now THREE! My girls are getting big and I cannot believe I actually did survive the first year of the second baby while going through the terrible twos of Miss A. I guess that would be my super power lol. What is yours?12322768_1302166389809983_769838979543513551_o

My work has gotten super busy. I worked from home 100% for the past 3.5 years (yep, super lucky there) and now I have just started to go to work 3 days a week and that has been a BIG adjustment for me and my family. I know I am still lucky enough to be able to work from home two days a week and when needed but I almost forgot how much work it is to actually get up at 6 am, take shower, style my hair (styling means blow drying and flat ironing ), to put on makeup, to pick professional clothes, pack some snacks for the road and so on. Phew. Oh the snack packing brings me to my most interesting point, my commute! From zero commute to now one way 50 miles commute is not fun, at all! Yep 50 miles each way. That is a whole lot of gas and mileage on my car and if you know the Capital Beltway, it is not the fun-nest road to drive on ๐Ÿ˜‰ . Anyways- I have been trying to make that commute as my “me” time. I snack on some dry fruits and Kind bars, listen to the Kane show and gather my thoughts. I make ALL my big plans while I drive these days lol. It’s funny you actually start to enjoy the long drive some days (some days).

The other new thing that I have is I have started to use Instagram a LOT lately lol. I mean at least one post a day , which is a BIG deal in my books. I am trying to stay active on social media by putting more pics on IG that way I am still keeping in touch with you all. What? You haven’t followed me on IG yet? You have got to! My IG name is pjmomblog , simple ๐Ÿ™‚ . Please follow me as I capture my cuties behind the iphone lenses. I have been trying to use a lot of hash tags to for the sake of visibility in the world of IG as well. So if you are up for keeping up with my babies’ shenanigans follow me right now.

Rest all is well, I will post Miss M’s birthday pics soon. Until then see you on IG.

A Super Birthday Party !!

A Super Birthday Party !!

Say what? A Super Birthday Party?

Yes. Indeed. A Super Birthday Party for my Super Girl A who turned THREE this week! I cannot believe how fast time is flying by. Only yesterday I was pregnant with A and now she is 3 and is FULL of personality.

A is so smart and so beautiful, it melts my heart. Her affection and love towards her little sister M is so sweet! I cannot thank god for giving me the most beautiful gifts. Anyways- we just celebrated A’s third birthday party and it was a success!

A asked for a Super hero party and she got it. She wanted to wear a red cape and she did. Hubby, myself and M took part and wore super hero shirts too. I did not want to do a traditional super hero party colors so I opted for pink/fuschia, teal, royal blue and lots of white and they all worked wonderfully ! God knows how many house of pinterest did I scour to come up with the perfect party for my perfect little girl of steel. Amazon Prime and Etsy were my best friends to get the goodies for the party from the outfits to the party printables.

Here are some pics from the party, enjoy them! Oh- I may do a detail posting about the items of the party but until them stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜‰ . As usual dont forget to send me a quick note for comments/ feedback.

Mother’s Day Special High Tea !

Mother’s Day Special High Tea !

Hello Friends-

Since Mother’s Day is coming up in less than a week and finally the weather here in VA is nice I hostedย a ladies only High Tea party honoring all the mothers to be and to all the mothers. I have been meaning to throw a Tea Party for a long time but it never happened until this past weekend. I dodged the bullet and carve out a time on my schedule and made it happen. I wanted to host a tea party where I would bake most of the goodies myself rather than buying them so that was something that took a bit of planning but I did it. I made finger sandwiches (hummus in rye bread, cucumber sandwich in white bread and chives and shallots in wheat bread), baked up two different kind of scones (vanilla scone with a hint of cherry and plum scones), baked some sugar cookies with blue raspberry icing, made a key lime pie cake with cotton candy frosting and rest of the items were veggie trays, fruit trays, bite sized chicken potpie and so on. A very good friend of mine who is starting to be quite a baker (lets call her SS ๐Ÿ™‚ ) volunteered to make some cupcakes and a surprise treat for the tea party. Lo and behold she made the perfect cupcakes in amazing spring colors and edible nail polishes! Well the nail polish is marshmallow and tootsie roll which looked super cute and super fun for a ladies only event. I gave those nail polishes and assorted tea bags to the ladies as a take home favors. I think the high Tea turned out amazing. My sister volunteered to bring flower arrangements for the party and they were breathtaking. My mom watched my little A and made special Nepali Chai tea for the ladies which is always a hit. My lady friends dressed to impress in their cute outfits and hats!All in all it was a very successful party and we all had a blast. Below are some pictures. If you need recipes for any of the folowing items please let me know and I will be more than happy to provide so.

Thank you for reading. Take care! Happy early Mother’s Day!

Asha’s Winter ONEderland!

Posted on

We celebrated Asha Lea’s first birthday on January 4th. I was planning A’s first birthday party in my head for a while and finally got to execute it. I wanted to do a sophisticated and elegant birthday party for my little lady and came up with a cream, white, gold, silver and peach colored color scheme. We had three cakes (red velvet, carrot cake and a smash cake of vanilla lemon flavor), cake pops (white chocolate covered double chocolate), cupcakes (vanilla frosted vanilla ) and snowflake butter cookies as main desserts. We had chicken marsala, chicken frensh ,butternut squash and craisins, pear and provolone salad as main entrees and we had hot cocoa bar (winter onederland party must-have), assortment beer, wines and still and sparking water. we also hired a balloon twister, face painter for the party. The party turned out awesome and the little lady had a blast. I was very pleased with how the party turned out overall. Most of the items were diy. I will be more than happy to share how I did them.
Enjoy the pics!
