“Ahoy It’s A Boy!”

Ahoy it’s a Boy, and his name is Jace T. Mitchell!  Who were the masterminds of this awesome baby shower?  The best cousins ever!  I always refer to them as my sisters.  They put together such a sweet shower for me and I’m so thankful for it, especially since I wasn’t going to have one for Jace.  This too, shall go in a memory album someday.  I am also grateful to all my close friends who could make it.  I even had a childhood friend show up who I haven’t seen in years!!!  You know who you are…Lile. lol  So good to see her and she looks just as beautiful as she did back when we were in grade school.  A few of my out-of-town Aunts showed up as well.  So awesome to have them part of this very special occasion.

   Besides this memorable event, our time spent in Texas was a blast!  I got to visit my family and Liam got to play with his cousins, Olivia and Roman.  There was something planned everyday so we were never short of fun and being bored was never an issue (photos coming soon).  Come to think of it, we were exhausted by the end of each day from all the excitement.  The only person we were missing was Tim.  Wish the hubby could have been with us, but he was hard at work in Washington and Utah.  I did share many photos with him and we continued to do face-time throughout the trip to keep him posted on all the fun stuff.  He kinda got jelly, but he was really happy that we got to spend time with the family. 🙂 So before I share our Texas trip photos with you, here are a few I snapped at the shower.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  The decorations were adorable!

Gotta have a “Selfie” before arriving at the baby shower!



Liam AKA the Bait Bandit!




So cute… white powdered donuts as “Life Savers”


Apparently Liam is a Donut Bandit too!  The pic below proves it!photo-7

My friends are all goofballs…

Jace will soon be sailing into our hearts and into our arms.  Here’s to another Mitchell adventure!!



15 Weeks…

I finally had the energy to start my week to week baby bump posts.  This pregnancy compared to my first, is completely different.  My first trimester I spent lots of time trying to take naps and gain my strength to actually do something productive.  No motivation whatsoever with baby #2.  I’m starting to feel much better now.  I’m still doing my yoga from time to time and trying to fit in a 2 mile walk everyday.   It’s been really hot in LA so the past week I’ve been a hermit.  I’m getting back into the routine again.  Here is my first baby bump photo with baby #2!

15 Weeks

 Total weight gain/loss: Gained 10 lbs total

Exercise: Mommy and Me yoga and walks around the neighborhood.  I include lunges and squats throughout the walk.

Maternity clothes: None yet!

Sleep: I am so exhausted with baby #2 compared to my first born. I go to bed at 9-9:30pm and wake up with the worst allergies ever.

Best moment this week: Getting some of my energy back.

Tim’s best moment this week: “Corina’s fatigue and irritation with me and her nausea is getting better.”

Miss Anything: That’s easy…. BOOZE

Movement: none yet.

Food cravings: besides my top fav, I’ve been throwing down lots of gold fish puffs!! Ugh, so delish and addicting.  Just as good as Cheeto Puffs!  Lots of cold watermelon (I can eat a whole one in a day), pineapple, cupcakes, ruffles with french onion dip, and bacon.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of anything cooked in a crockpot. Yuck.

Have you started to show yet: big and fast.

Belly Button in or out? In

Happy or Moody most of the time: Most of the time I try to keep my patience with a toddler running around.  My hormones kick in every now and then, but then I pull myself together after the scream. Haha!

Looking forward to: Getting a new car!!! We need a bigger automobile to fit two munchkins.  My current sports car is the size of a peanut.  It’s annoying.

Difficulties: Very very tired by the end of the day.  Sometimes I lose my energy around 10am.  It sucks.  Allergies- sneezing and stuffy nose.  I am also finding it difficult to give Liam baths.  Usually Tim is around after work to takeover.  It’s helps tremendously.

Fun Fact: Baby #2 is about 4 inches long and weighs about 2.5 ounces.

Baby #2!!!

We are SOOO EXCITED to announce that we are expecting baby #2 on November 13, 2014!!!  The Mitchell family is growing, which means we have a lot of changes coming up.  New car, new place, new stroller… these are just a few from our to-do list.   I’m so thankful for everything and can’t wait for more of the Mitchell adventures.

Oh, and weekly postings are back!
