Family, Happy Birthday!!!, Lifestyle, Maternity/Baby

david-bearden-livingwithjane

I am 3 months late with this post, but it’s better late than never, right?! My life has been very hectic lately (but again, when is it not?), I got my real estate license, Christian turned 3, my parents are visiting and I’m trying to spend all my time with them and the kids. But even though David turned one 3 months ago I still wanted to upload this post along with the video that I edited for him.

He’s grown so much and is already starting to talk. He knows what he wants, he is kinda stubborn, and he loves to eat! 

david-bearden-livingwithjane

David started to walk independently at 14.5 weeks, he swims for 8 seconds, and he loves food!!

This little boy (well, maybe not so little) loves to pet and hug Bonnie Boo, he loves watching squirrels run in our backyard, and he will never refuse food (oh, I already mentioned it LOL).

We just absolutely love and adore him <3

Top 10 picnic parks in DFW

Dallas, Texas, Family, Food/Recipes, Lifestyle

top-10-picnic-parks-dfw

If you know me you know that I LOVE picnics! What can be better than sitting outside, eating good food, having a conversation with great friends while your kids are running around? Today my amazing friend and awesome blogger Roselle from in_DFW blog (which is the best guide to family fun) and I decided to team up and create a list of TEN parks in DFW that are perfect for a picnic. So here they are:

top-10-picnic-parks-dfw

  1. Haggard Park 

Located in the heart of Plano and is also a home of Interurban Railway museum. We especially like going there for movie nights in the park. They are free and family-friendly, you can’t beat it.

2. Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

It’s probably number 1 park for playdates for those who live in Plano area. It has everything: a playground for kids, several pavilions, hike and bike trails, plus it’s pet-friendly.

3. Hope park

The best family park hands down. Huge playground for kids different age, spray park, stocked pond, a walking trail, BBQ grill, picnic tables – pretty much everything you need for a fun family time outdoors. If you’ve never been there, you have to check it out!

4. Bob Woodruff Park

This park is located near the lake, great place for those who love fishing. It also features sand volleyball court, hike and bike trails, therapeutic swing and a playground.

5. Mary Head Carter’s Park

It was updated in 2014. Play features include climbing areas of simulated rock, cables, ladders, interactive panels, slides, decks, swings, shade and a three-level tower.

Family Day In The Life

Dallas, Texas, Everything else, Family, Lifestyle, Photography

day-in-the-life-bearden

This is how our typical family day looks like (if you ever wondered :-))  Here I’m posting the photos that I really like, but if you want to see the full DITL (day in the life) photo shoot click this link.

Usually, we all wake up when one of the kids wake up (around 7 am), and then we have a little party in our bed: playing, reading books, hugging, kissing and laughing a lot.

When Daniel has a day off he cooks breakfast. And no matter who makes breakfast Christian likes to watch and help.

While Daniel is cooking breakfast, I’m nursing David. And Christian just runs back and forth to make sure that everyone is doing what they’re supposed to do LOL 🙂

4 Healthy Snacks Kids Can Make

DIY/How to, Family, Food/Recipes, Lifestyle

healthy-snacks-livingwithjane

I’m always trying to find creative ideas on how to feed my kids healthy and incorporate foods that they don’t normally eat. So here are 4 healthy snacks ideas that kids can actually make themselves. Have you noticed that when you cook something it tastes better than if someone else cooked it (only if that someone else is not Gordon Ramsey)? The same with kids, when they help to make something they will mostly likely enjoy eating it more.

29 Things To Do Before I Turn 30

Everything else, Family, Lifestyle, Thoughts

29-things-to-do

I haven’t done the post like this in a really long time, and since today is the beginning of my last year of being 20s I think it’s a good time to make the list again. This day next year I’m going to be 30 and I’m terrified of this number. I don’t even know why I’m freaking out like this.  I guess I always thought that once you turn 30, that’s it, you enter the #AdultLife, like you become a woman who can’t wear short shorts and bikini anymore, who might even cut her hair short, who must use face masks and eye cream all the time, who gets her first wrinkles, and who younger generation calls Mrs. ____ . And I don’t want this. Not because I want to be childish and don’t want to grow up, I just don’t want to get old I guess. People actually consider me mature for my age, but when I turn 30, maturity will be kind of expected. Let me know if you have similar feelings? At least then I won’t feel so lonely and silly.

Nevertheless, I want to spend this year purposefully so good that it won’t be so sad to turn 30. Here is my list of 29 things to do this year: Continue reading “29 Things To Do Before I Turn 30”

July Currently

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

july-currently

July has been a lot of fun (pool parties, moms night out, going out with friends).  A big portion of the month we all have been under the weather though (Daniel and I had bad allergies, Christian had a stomach bug and ran a fever 104.2, David has just recently got sick and had a fever 103 yesterday). We are also preparing for David’s First Birthday Party, and while it’s a lot of fun, it’s also a bit stressful.

This month I was reminded of how fast time really flies (well, I’m reminded of it every month lol). I realized that I’m not looking forward to my birthdays anymore (which btw is next month!! Wait, what??), because I’m getting older, and I’m not looking forward to being a 50-year-old woman.. And I know it’s far away..but again, is it??  I’m like a little terrified of it lol…

Favorite: These Sunglasses! I love me some cat-eye frames, these particular sunglasses just scream SUMMER!! And they’re so cheap too <3

June Currently + Family Friday Linkup

Family, Lifestyle, Thoughts

livingwithjane

June flew by so fast… It was May yesterday, and it’s already July… June was a hard month, a lot was going on and we were just so busy…it seems like the whole month was just on fast forward except for a couple of moments that were in slow motion…  That’s how I feel about June…

It seems like the whole month was just on fast forward except for a couple of moments that were in slow motion…  That’s how I feel about June and that’s probably the best I can describe it…

livingwithjane

Reminded of what a great actor is Tom Hanks LOL 🙂 and L-I-F-E.. How important it is to live Your Life, to do what you want to do, to spend time with people you want to spend time with, to create moments with your loved ones, and not sweat a small stuff or even a big stuff..because at the end a lot of things that we so worry about won’t matter…the only things that will matter are the memories that we have and the moments we create, and I want them to be good…

On June 21, my girlfriend’s mom who had cancer (read her story here) passed away… I was at the hospital that night, and it was so heartbreaking. I know that no one is going to live on this Earth forever, and the death is unavoidable, but it’s still very hard to deal with it.But, like my husband said: “She (Fanny) is not in the past she is in our future, and we’ll definitely meet in heaven”.

If any of you want to support her family and help with the funeral expenses, please donate here.

Watched The League of Their Own, Captain Phillips… Both are based on a true story…

Captain-Phillips

league-of-their-own

… and we started to watch Son Of God (but we haven’t finished it yet). But so far I feel like they gave a general idea of the bible but there are a lot of {important} details that weren’t shown in the movie…

son-of-god

And yes, I can’t believe I haven’t watched Me before You just yet… 🙁 Have you watched it? I’m afraid to be disappointed, I loved the book so much…


Enjoying going to be at night… There are days when I enjoy waking up and looking forward to a new day, but this month I was just really enjoying going to bed, and get some kind of a quiet time without rushing anywhere, and even then I didn’t really enjoy my nights, because I had to wake up to put Christian on a potty or David was waking up because I broke him from taking a pacifier and he didn’t like that…

And we are enjoying swimming in the pool almost every day 🙂 <3

Family Morning Routine

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

I enjoyed filming and editing our daily routine. I don’t know if it’s good or bad but I do like the routine, I can plan things better and I can get a lot done if I know how my day goes. We have two morning routines: work day routine and weekend routine. In this video you can see our work day routine, where I get up with kids, make breakfast (3 separate breakfasts LOL :-), and take care of kids, while my husband gets ready for work. On weekends, I get to relax a little bit more since my husband is the one who takes care of the kids. Let me know if you want me to make a weekend morning routine video 🙂 I’ll be happy to!

What time do you wake up in the morning? And what is your morning routine?
