Birchbox is a beauty product sample company. 
What they do is send you a pretty box filled with beauty product samples.

Perfume samples, mositurizer samples, all sorts of samples. 
Get on their waiting list, yes a waiting list because that's how popular it is.

What I Wore Wednesday...

Top & pants: Gap
Flops: Brighton
I've had those flip flops for such a long time.
 Cupcake (the doggie) even chewed on them but I don't care.
I love them. 

I've been in my closet, trying to get some outfits for San Diego together. 
I've heard the weather is great at night so this may be my chance to wear a scarf in the SUMMER!
I miss my scarves. 
I was about to wear one yesterday but in this heat, nah. 
I'm loving all these outfits. 

Once again, the picture taking for WIWW is not going so well. I get so busy. It slips my mind. 

Thank you for stopping by!

hello Monday

the weeks seem to be just flying by. time does go by fast when you're having fun and/or enjoy your job. 

another hello to Monday. 

hello to the guy who woke me up this morning. and it wasn't my husband. it was the car wash guy. he's here to wash the car. don't get any ideas. 

hello to a clean car. this guy leaves it sparkling clean. 

hello to my new business accounting program that almost made me cry the other night. i HATE math. but i must use it. eventually, i will learn it. 

hello to the little ladies who won't wake up early. I've tried to get them out of bed by 8am and i fail. they love to sleep. 

hello clean laundry room. and no laundry for a week. feels good. 

hello to a relaxing week at home. sophie has cheer one practice this week. other than that, home all week. i love it. 

hello to lots of work. not complaining. except when my hands start to hurt. and my brain all of a sudden just stops working. then, i complain. 

hello to the San Diego countdown. excited! i plan to blog on my trip. that's the plan. 

hello Monday!

so, what are you saying hello to on this HOT summer Monday?

peace & blessings,

nautical birthday party

i love the beach, so naturally i love anything and everything nautical. i would love to move somewhere near a beach, with sailboats and good seafood. i could eat seafood everyday.

i still ask myself everyday, "why do i live in laredo?"

so, for my daughter's birthday party i decided to do a nautical preppy theme. she happily agreed. colors were hot pink and navy blue. however, finding party supplies in navy blue can be tough.

The birthday hours before her party and she was already wearing her swimsuit!

Cupcake/cake table!

2 jumbo cupcakes, one for each of my little ladies!
I always put a baby pic of the birthday girl. 

Super delicious cupcakes!

paper passion will soon be carrying jumbo balloons, just like the bug blue one!

paper fans for guests who didn't get in the pool. 

the birthday girl!

line for the ice cream sundae bar!

Me and the hubby!

Front door entrance!

Planning this party was fun and a lot of work. 

Nothing beats fun memories at home.

This was her last "big" party. 
Ages 8 and up, just her and her little girl friends. 

My baby girl, is just growing and growing. 
I am loving the little lady she is becoming. 
She a sweetheart. 

So, my other little lady. Her birthday is in October and already we are planning her 10th birthday party!
10 years, a whole decade. 
Slumber party! Spa theme!
Cannot wait!

Have a great weekend!

right now...

i am

watching: tv is off. however, i can hear sophie watching Full House in the living room. 

eating: just ate a taco. egg whites and turkey bacon. it was alright. 

drinking: water!

wearing: jean shorts, grey striped shirt, flops

avoiding: stepping outside. its so hot. but i have to step out in this heat to take sophie to cheer camp. 

feeling: a bit stressed. overwhelmed. but thankful to be feeling this way. means i have way too much work, which in turn is always good. 

missing: sugar! i've been putting splenda in my coffee. its alright.  

thankful: for work. for a supportive husband. 

weather: muy CALIENTE! 

praying: morning and night, just like my facial cleansing routine.  

needing: well i didn't need underwear but i went to Victoria's Secret semi-annual sale today and bought some anyway. Clearly, i don't understand the word NEED. Tmrw I'm hitting Bath & Body Works for their semi-annual sale. Do I NEED anything from there? Probably not. I could use a new body spray though. I go thru mine pretty quickly. 

thinking: the whole stationery store idea might just happen. i got some great advice on monday. 

loving: my summer AM's. I am still able to enjoy my AM's. The little ladies stay in bed past 10 so I am able to work a couple of hours in peace.  

wishing: i could blog everyday. it is time consuming. I'm going to try my best to do it everyday. keyword: TRY!

hope you're having a great week!

thanks for stopping by :)

Flops: Tory Burch

Top: The Limited

Shoes: Kenneth Cole

Cant see my shoes but I was wearing tennis!

In case you're new to the blog please don't think i just love to take pics of myself!
Not the case, although who doesn't love a camera. 
I take pics to keep myself accountable for getting out of my PJ's and into some nice, fresh, clean clothes.
Working from home makes it so much easier to stay in my comfy PJ's all day. 

Ran into an outfit on Polyvore that i just love!
well except for the shoes

i want those shorts and that necklace! 
much love. and that ring. perfect!

went to the Limited Monday and I wanted to buy almost everything. 

Pictured with me is my friend and loyal blog reader, Aissa. 
I loved my dress. Til it got dirty with chili. 
Dress: Limited
Anchor necklace & bangle: Forever 21

Hope you enjoyed today's post!

Now, back to work!
And prepping for a baby shower. 
Trying to come up with baby shower games.

Summer is here! 

The Sanchez Family loves summer. 

We don't have big summer travel plans. Not like last year. 
Dying to go back but hubby says NO. 
I may just board a plane without him. 

We are taking our little ladies for a week long vacation to Port Aransas and Kemah. 
For them, ages 9 &7, those are big travel plans. 
And if I can think of somewhere else to go we may just go there too. 

Yesterday we celebrated the last day of school with lunch with friends, swimming, and ice cream. 
We were so tired from all the FUN we all fell asleep by 930. 

Hello, Summer!

Have a fabulous weekend!
