Currently May 2015

I have been looking forward to doing this currently again! I celebrate my month of blogging, and currently is the only post i got comments on :) 

so here it goes....

so it was my daughter's birthday yesterday 1st of May.. and she turned one.. I wanted to make her a (you are my sunshine birthday) that's why I listened to this song so much!

Did you guys know how hard it is to find a good cheap yellow dress?! so I ended up making her this birthday instead :) 

I got this idea from pinterest, and taking pictures is not as easy as it looks! She was moving around so excited swimming among those balloons, pulling that flower off her head.. but I managed to take this one  

Last month I wanted to get those wall decals (golden polka dot ones) I ended up cutting circles our of wrapping paper and sticking them on the wall with double sided tape.. 

My three year old daughter was happy to assist opening the gifts ;) 

the year passed by too quickly... kids get cuter... mothers get older.. I need to freeze time somehow! any tips? DIYs? other than becoming a vampire?!

so this summer is my brother's wedding... and as someone born and raised in the middle east, castles are a big deal to me! sure we have ruins of Old Roman Empires but this is different a castle of a king or queen ,,, Yay! 


  1. Wow - what a fun birthday! I love that you used wrapping paper and double-sided tape for those gold dots! (I love fun, cheap alternatives, and it looks AMAZING!) Your kiddos are gorgeous, too - what lovely photos!

    And wow, that castle is amazing!
