The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

My Baby Shower

Yesterday was my baby shower for baby #4, Miss Atalie Belle!



This was the first time I ever had an all women only shower. And it's also the first time I was completely surprised as to what was going on for my shower. My bestie Tiffany threw this one for me. She did an absolute AWESOME job! I did give my opinions along the way when asked, but she went above and beyond my expectations! She truly is a wonderful friend, and a wonderful soon-to-be Godmother for Atalie. I can't believe all the hard work she put into putting this party together for me. I am just so grateful for my friend and all her hard work.

The decoration/theme were my favorite part. She made huge lollipops and I was so surprised when I pulled up at my shower! And all the grassy area had smaller lollipops scattered throughout.




She set up as sweets buffet and all the guests got to take home goodie bags full of treats!


Before getting to my shower I had to stop at Walmart and I found this bib and had to buy it. So I found a good place to display it.


And I got a pimp glass to drink out of...


Then after our fabulous lunch of mini sandwiches and salads we played games!


The first game we played had each table put into a team. And each team had 15 minutes to decorate a onesie, then I had to judge my favorite at the end.








These onesies were not for the baby to actually wear. We're gonna hang them up later as decor. So the teams got to let their imaginations run wild. And the could ONLY use what was in their bin (ribbon, paints, patches... lots of awesome stuff).

They came up with this:





(The winner was the rockstar onesie made by my Tias Kika and Yolie, cousin Gaby, my Abuelita, and my Papa's wife Ana)

After that we played a game where they had to taste and smell baby food and try and guess what flavors they were. It was hilarious! My Abuelita was so funny!


I guess Rebecca didn't like it!


This is Dr. Gonzalez... she's our kids Pediatrician. My sister-in-law (Jr's sister) Boogie works for her. She got really into the game.


Nichole didn't like some of the flavors either...








I swore my Mother-in-Law would have won... all she does it take care of kids all day long... and a bunch of them are babies.


Abuelita really loved the banana one... she was trying to hide it and not pass it on!


And then it was time to open gifts.


I got so many!


I am so blessed to have the family and friends I do.




One set of Crib bedding


My nephew raises his gifts up high and everyone cheers so I had to try it myself!








Diapers are the best!




I love these blinged out Sketchers that my brother-in-law Loyiel picked out!


And of course my sister picks out the things with the skulls.


And then she had to go and make me cry at the very end by giving me this frame. It says "I cared for you, played with you, & laughed with you before I sent you to Mommy and Daddy my little Princesa. Always watching over you, Jamma.

Not having my Mom physically there with me was the hardest part of my whole day and it was in the back of my mind the whole entire time. So I broke down immediately after reading it.

She also made one for her new baby and one for Jen's new baby.


And then I continued on with Tiffany's gift. She gave me more than she needed to! She threw the awesome party and still spent a fortune on a gift. I can't believe her! She has a heart of gold I tell ya.


This little giraffe is personalized with her name on the bottom!


She also got her some personalized binkies. Some say "Atalie Belle" and some say "Grandmother's Angel".




Can't have a baby shower without some Coach right?


She also got me the set of crib bedding I wanted. I've been going back and forth on what theme I want for my girl's room since all 3 will share...


She also had the great idea of asking people to bring diapers. And whoever brought diapers was entered into a raffle for a nice prize! I got LOTS of diapers!!!


And my sister-in-law Jen won!


And we also raffled off leftover prizes from the games and we ended up with more winners:








We got a picture of us with our frames...


And then it was photoshoot time. You know our family. It's what we do!

Me and my Bestie Tiff!


My cousin Rebecca and I


Jennifer, Me, and Nichole... And soon-to-be Baby Melo, Atalie, and Laila!






My photographer/cousin Alexis! I lick her... errr I mean I like her.




Me and my friend Tracy... I've known her since like middle school!


We lick lollipops... Don't worry they're sugar free so they go along with my diet :)


I know my daddy CAN'T WAIT for 3 new bundles of joy to enter his life.


Becca groped me!


And these are my daughter's Godmothers. Arielle's, Atalie's, and Alayna's.


Thanks for all who came. It made my day to spend it with the most important women in my life. I love everyone!

Hi Bestie!
Wow, you were fast at getting this up today! Look at you! I am so happy you enjoyed yourself yesterday, you deserve it. I am also happy that your guests had a good time. Oh my goodness wasn't the baby food game hilarious? I didn't expect that guests would fight over who got to finish what jars :). Now I just can't wait to meet Ms.Atalie.
