Our Life In Instaphotos: November 17 – 23, 2014


I sat (well, I layed down… :-)) to write my weekly post about how I week went. And I literally remember only what was yesterday, everything else just slipped out of my mind… Right now I’m thinking really hard about every day of this past week. I guess a lot of things I just do so automatically that I don’t even register them in my head: cooking, cleaning, working, cleaning, cooking, sleeping… plus, I’m reaaaally tired. And that all makes me think, how people have 2 or more kids, especially if they all under 3 or twins or triplets :-)??? Supemommys, for sure.. I don’t think I could do that..

Села я значит (легла вернее) писать мой еженедельный пост, о том, как прошла наша неделя.. И мой мозг помнит только то, что было вчера, на этом все воспоминания заканчиваются.. Сейчас я прилагаю все усилия, чтобы вспомнить а что мы все-таки делали. Я столько всего делаю просто на автомате, что это уже даже не регестрируется у меня в голове: готовлю, убираю, работаю, опять готовлю, опять убираю, посуда, посуда, посуда, а потом спаааать, а еще к тому же я в эти очень уставшая. В такие моменты я начинаю думать, а как люди справляются с двумя детьми или тремя, а особенно если им всем меньше трех лет..а если еще и близнецы..или тройняшки??? Вот что я называю Супермамы 🙂 Думаю, я бы так не смогла 🙂

On Monday we went to a playground, Christian had so much fun there. He really loves kids, he wants to play with them and grab them (sometimes not so gentle). But he really enjoyed it there, and I’m always happy to see him happy!

On Thursday we went to MOPS (mothers of preschoolers meeting), I usually leave him at child care there, and he just doesn’t like it.. He is probably the only child in that room that cries and doesn’t want to play. Not sure why he has such separation anxiety. I was kind of thinking that maybe because he is breastfed, and he’s so attached to me? Usually I’ve noticed that bottlefed babies act a little different and are more independent. Now every time we go to MOPS, he ends up with me and all the mommies.

В понедельник мы пошли играть на детскую площадку, Кристиану там как всегда очень понравилось. Он очень любит детей, хочет их за ручку схватить..иногда за ногу…бывает и за голову…В общем, нежностям нам еще учиться и учиться…

2 раза в месяц по четвергам у нас встречи с мамами в церкви. Детки в комнатах для детей, а мамы завтракают и слушают разных спикеров. Кристиану там не нравится, он по-моему единственный ребенок в своей комнате, который капризничает и плачет. Не знаю почему у него такая сильная привязанность ко мне. Я думаю может потому что он на грудном вскармливании, по моим наблюдениям детки на ИВ более независимые в этом возрасте.. В общем, мои встречи так и проходят с ним на коленках…

This project was fun! At our church and at MOPS we had an Operation Christmas Child project (I think it’s nationwide). Basically, you choose an age group of a child (2-4. 5-9. 10-14), you choose boy of girl, and then you get different goodies like school supply, or something for hygiene, toys etc, pack it all in a shoebox. Our church collects all the boxes, and then they’re all sent to different parts of the world, like Panama, Africa etc. So it’s a great idea to share our love and love of Jesus with kids, and just make their Christmas something special and bright. This was our first year doing something like this, and I hope it becomes our tradition, and when Christian grows up a little, he will help, and he will learn a lot through this as well.

This year he was enjoying UNpacking shoeboxes 🙂 not packing them 🙂

А вот этот проект нам очень понравился! Каждый год здесь в Америке собирают коробки с подарками для нуждающихся детей в других странах. Ну вот, мы выбрали для себя мальчика (2-4 годика) и девочку (5-9 лет), и собирали подарки: школьные принадлежности, средства гигиены, игрушки. Теперь это станет нашей традицией – собирать подарки детям каждый год. И когда Кристиан станет немного старше, он будет помогать. В этот раз ему понравилось распаковывать коробку, а не упаковывать ее. 🙂

I hope you had a wonderful week!!

“Little Gentleman” Birthday Party Supplies

Everything else, Lifestyle, NEWS

Christian’s Birthday Party Theme was “Little Gentleman”. When we were thinking about the theme, I knew right way that I didn’t want any cartoon theme, just because first birthday party was, honestly, more for us {parents, adults}, than for birthday boy. He won’t remember this day anyways, and he also didn’t enjoy it the way he will enjoy his 3d, 4th, 5th and so forth birthdays. So we left cartoon characters for Christian to choose later. But for us we wanted something nice, something where we could dress up, and dress Christian up, we still wanted something nice and memorable, so that Christian at least could see on photos and etc. And “Little Gentleman” theme was perfect for that. After we chose the theme I started imagining how I want everything to look like. And I mostly wanted to incorporate bow ties, not mustache, but it was challenging to find stuff with bow tie, and even though I could custom order them, I didn’t want to spend so much money on decorations. So we had to incorporate both bow ties and mustache at the bday party. I tried to make everything nice and on a budget. And here I just wanted to share some links with you guys of what and where I ordered everything.  Continue reading ““Little Gentleman” Birthday Party Supplies”

Our Life In InstaPhotos: November 10 – 16, 2014


I didn’t realize how few photos I posted on Instagram this past week.. I’m still trying to find balance between my work/hobby, family, and everything that needs to be done at the house.. And there are weeks that I post a lot on my blog, but I don’t make as many videos, sometimes I post a lot of videos, but don’t have enough time to update my blog and instagram. I always make sure though that I cook meals for my family (and yes, on occasions we order pizza :-)), spend time with them, especially weekends with my husband.. Basically I put my family above my hobbies, and I personally think that it’s right for woman to do so and prioritize family and God (if you’re a believer) above other things… But as I said I’m still trying to find balance between everything, and I like to do it all and to have it all… Recently, I created a schedule, and I even have a big calendar on the wall, where I write down all the stuff that I need to do for like almost a month ahead… It helps a lot, that way I stay organized and not overwhelmed…well, I try not to get overwhelmed 🙂 This is my rough schedule: to post a beauty video once a week, to post a vlog once a week, update my blog 3 times a week… We’ll see how it goes, and if this schedule is manageable for me.. Before I had to post 4 videos in a week: 2 for beauty channel and 2 for my family channel. But it was waaay over my head. I managed to stick to the schedule for only one week…barely… I had to edit day and night, and just was exhausted… 🙂

So that is kind of my update on my life so far…

And how is your life going on? Please, do share… 🙂

Our Life in InstaPhotos: November 3 – 9, 2014


This past week we just stayed home. Christian was diagnosed with Hand, foot, mouth disease.. It’s a rash that appears on the face. hands and feet, sometimes in the mouth.. He had it for only a day..But we still were home just to be on the safe side in case he was contagious. He slept so bad at nights I thoughts those days I mean nights were in the past, but I guess not. He is good right now though, he eats good, sleeps good and in a good mood. And it always makes me happy.

We also filmed couple of videos, that will be up soon on our family channel, so please subscribe to support us!  Continue reading “Our Life in InstaPhotos: November 3 — 9, 2014”
