Little Monster’s Birthday is coming soon!

My son’s first birthday is coming sooner than we can say Yikes! What to do, what to do!

Pinterest has become my new best friend. However, I think I have about 20 (of course I am exaggerating) different boards related to his birthday. Anyone who looks at my boards would think, “Sheesh, how many parties is she planning on throwing?” From Mickey Mouse, to Henry Huggle-Monster, to just Halloween themes, I just can’t make up my mind.

Truthfully, in a perfect world, I would throw a Henry Huggle-Monster party. But as my son has very well pointed out to me with his dumbfounded face as to why I changed the channel from Mickey Mouse over to this crazy looking creature, he is not very fond of Henry. What a shame, because I really like Henry. Mostly because (and you may be wondering why I call my son Little Monster) when just a few weeks old, he would sleep for minutes and if I was luck y half hours at a time. I am sure many mothers can relate. Suddenly, he’d wake up and Bam! It was over! He would cry out hysterically!  And so we called him the Little Sleeping Monster

So here are some ideas that I found on Pinterest that I just really love:

Love this! Just Cool-Aid.
Throw some of those
googly eyes in front and
you have Monster Juice!

Very cute and healthy for both
children and adults.

Some more ideas below. These are just a selection of pictures from my pinterest.
Marshmallows! Need I
say more?
A kids party is not complete if
you don't have one of these!

This is just the best
idea ever for kids to
be silly and enjoy!

As you can see from the pictures above, I've decided to go with a Monsters theme. It seems the most easy and kid friendly. Ideas on paper is what this is right now. Now I have to call on my sister for her party planning skills. Watch out for a later blog on the aftermath of this event.

Getting To My Destination


I am Michelle Espinoza. I am a wife to my wonderful husband and a mother to a beautiful, loving, and full of energy 11-month old boy. I am accountant by day, and a dream-seeker by night. I am incessantly thinking of ways to better our lives; whether it is our time management skills, reaching our personal and family goals, or improving our finances, health, and faith.  Lucky for me, that is a passion that my husband and I share. We are both very ambitious individuals, but most times feel that we limit ourselves by our fears.

As individuals, we have dreams and aspirations. Some are fortunate to know what their goals are and how to get there, and others may not have a clue where to even begin.  At times, I can’t decide between one direction and another. How many of you find yourself in that position, and more often than not?

Decisions, decisions…As overwhelming as they can become, it is a part of our daily lives. Occasionally, time or alternatives can limit
one’s process. But one thing is for sure, God gave us the gift of Choice!

Nevertheless, I've decided that starting a blog can possibly teach me new things and offer me the opportunity to meet new great people, and ultimately, that it can help me figure out how it is that I need to get to my destination, where or whatever it may be. So welcome my readers! Hope to make this a great experience!
