Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).

Then and Now: Eid

Assalamualaikum wbt.. We have came across another holiday which only means another addition of Then and Now!   I tried my best to get some comparable picture with my handphone, so don't mind the bad lighting! Here is our little family on Eid, 2011 vs. 2013: Here is a close up of her face..I tried to get the best picture I could. Happy Eid everyone!

Birthday Girl: Outfit Post

Assalamualaikum wbt.. Birthdays kind of lost their magic for me when I turned 18. I stopped having big birthday parties and sleepovers and birthday outfits. Now that I turned  twenty-freaking-eight and I wanted some of that magic back for my daughter.Not to mention last year I haven't celebrate my daughter's birthday when she turned ONE. So I decided to do something special for her especially on her Birthday outfit and party:)  I bought this Shirley Tulle dress from Cotton On  and match it with Birthday Girl badge. I think the outfit is perfect with the ballerina theme I'm planning for her party :)

Family Portraits

Assalamualaikum wbt.. We had our family photo session last month and I absolutely LOVE how they came out. Thank you to Atikah from The Picture Company for capturing this special times in our lives :) 

Party planning has begun

Assalamualaikum wbt.. Less than 10 days away from Aulia' 2nd birthday and I am in full out party planning! I actually had the theme picked out for a few months now and I have had the invites designed too. But I wanted to wait to reveal everything until we get closer! So without further adieu... It is a Ballerina theme everyone! I wanted something fresh and light with a pastel color scheme birthday party and we are all excited to have it at Aulia's Opah and Atuk's house this year! 

August Goals

Assalamualaikum wbt.. I am really happy coz I completed all of my July's goals and here's me welcoming in August with big, open arms, and moreover, Aidilfitri is coming up, hurrahh! Hopefully I'll do better this than I did in June , so here goes August goals :) So obviously, this month I'm focusing a little less on tangible goals like Raya preparation and Aulia' birthday party. And the vacation and long holiday mood is on. Let me tell ya, it has been HARD to force my lazy vacation brain back into lady boss working mode in three weeks time from now. My brain worked overtime this morning to try and keep me in bed, but I powered down the don't wants to complete my works this week. Way to wake up and WERK today!! Happy hump day:)
