Showers and the Spa

Can I just throw out there that lately I’ve been putting a drop or two of eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower. I LOVE IT! You know, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to the spa, that they have a steam room or sauna room. Well, back in California I have amazing people in my life who gave me a card to get a free spa treatment. While this new mom to an eight month old at the time gladly took a spa treatment, I went into one of these lovely rooms and they had eucalyptus oil mixed with the steam the sprayed out occasionally. It was by far the most relaxing place. Mix that room with a cold glass of cucumber water and it’s one awesome day. So as I said I’ve been putting eucalyptus and lavender in the bottom of my shower and with a little less steam it is still sooooooo relaxing. Did I put enough O’s? haha I just love that I can be in my own shower  and get the same relaxing feeling as a sauna/ steam room.

Young Living and I

So as I said I would make a separate page for all my essential oils for you guys. I finally did but I cant post there it will still be on my home page as well. So it’s just more in depth I guess. On this lovely page I will post my personal link for anyone wanting to peruse through things, I just have to get that website set up.  I have grown to love what all they have done for my family and I. Knowing everything is completely produced by them and how picky they are with the product they put out, puts this mommas mind at ease. So hop on over to the young living tab to know just a little more about young living and I 🙂

More sleep for me!

So I know what you’re gonna say, another oil post?! I know. I know. But let me tell you guys how happy I am right now. Jack has been sleeping so much better. We got this new oil called cedarwood and we put it in the diffuser in his room with lavender….He woke up once. Once! And he didn’t even wake up until like 10-11 the next morning. I slept so good! Plus we had a pretty happy well rested baby the following day. Happy baby = Happy mom and dad.

The First of Many

My baby’s first Christmas guys! I can’t believe how fast he’s growing up. I feel like I just had him. Although he’s not quite to the age where he gets super excited to open presents, I love seeing that he loves what he has gotten and how he tries to tear the paper. I was supposed to work a 12 hour shift today, which I wasn’t excited about but someone’s gotta do it. I got to work I was there for about an hour and then they let me go home. I’m truly blessed. I work with great people and God has his way of working. Let me tell you I was super excited to come home and be able to be with my husband and son I almost wanted to cry. I didn’t want to miss my babies first Christmas. Yes, he’s ten months probably won’t ever remember but I will. I’m just happy I got to be here. I hope every has an awesome day and don’t forget the real meaning of Christmas. Be grateful for what you have and love your family unconditionally. Merry Christmas guys!

Work to Home.

Guys I work 12 hour shifts. I come home and hang out with my hubby and my baby boy, as I do every time I work and come home. Tonight I did the same thing, but now I’m just sitting here writing this blog. My husband on his PS4 and I can not tell you how relaxed I am. Usually I get off work come home, hang out and go to bed. Tonight I felt like doing things a bit different. So I’m sitting here writing, looking at my young living things and hanging out with my husband. This is so nice. We don’t usually get a lot of us time, even if were doing our own thing together. Jack is finally starting to get back on Germany time, only took about a month. He’s sleeping much better at night, although with him trying to walk his brain is running all the time so last night he didn’t sleep very well. My poor baby, always awake trying to learn everything. Even though I decided to come home and hang out a bit longer than usual, I’m still tired. Again, I can’t even begin to explain how nice it is and be able to do something adult like instead of going to straight to bed. I’m sure all parents know the feeling 🙂

Me Time

So a couple nights ago my husband and my son went to bed super early. At first I didn’t know what to do with myself so I face timed the parents. I talked to them for about 2 or so hours, caught up on everything since we left. I got off and decided to take a shower. It was so nice! I got to take a decently long shower. I even got to shave my legs! I didn’t have to worry about them because they were knocked out asleep. I had made my self dinner, was able to FaceTime, and take a shower! I was super excited about it. Haha. Anyone with kids knows that feeling of being able to do something and not have to worry about keeping an eye on them. Then of course I went to bed and I couldn’t have been happier to be with them both. I got a little bit of me time, it was really nice, but I always miss my boys. 🙂

The Big Day

We’ve had a busy couple days in the Hernandez household guys! With all the traveling and getting a lot together we finally had Jackson’s baptism. I’m super happy and excited. I swear my baby boy got baptized and now he’s as happy as can be. He was a happy baby before, don’t get me wrong, but now it’s like he’s beyond happy. He’s been a pretty good trooper. He had his big day  and met more family, he wasn’t very fussy, didn’t even nap most of the day. He’s the perfect baby. His baptism was amazing. So many family members showed up and got to see him get baptized and came to the reception after to hold, cuddle, and see him some more. The big day went perfect and smooth and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.
