Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

My Birthday

This year my birthday kind-of snuck up on me! We've been so busy getting the house ready, moving in and preparing for baby I hadn't even really thought about my birthday! Never-the-less, my wonderful husband still outdid himslef planning a fun dinner with his family at Ernesto's, sending me beautiful flowers at work (they've literally smelled up our entire floor, so beautiful), getting some super fun gifts including a wine club memebership (I think I've made myself clear that I am ready for some wine after this baby arrives) and new cowboy boots and somehow finding time to get a cake! He is the BEST! We had a great evening with family and I got spoiled with all kinds of wonderful gifts. Another special evening celebrating another wonderful year! =)

Making Valentine's with My Sweet Boy!

Since Valentine's Day is around the corner and we aren't quite sure when baby Kelsey is going to arrive, I wanted to spend some time making Valentine's with Preston for his class. Preston is really into super heros these days, so we decided to make little lollipops with super hero capes that say, "Have a SUPER Valentine's Day!" Preston had fun cutting the capes out with me and gluing on the super hero logos. We made little Batman and Superman lollipops. It was a good time for the both of us. I love getting to share in these moments with my sweet boy!

Preparing for Kelsey

Well, after a lot of stress and meetings with our builder, we finally closed on our house! I wasn't sure if we were going to be in the house before sweet Kelsey made her arrival, but lucky for us, she held on a bit so we could be fully prepared for her. We got moved in last weekend and were able to get her little nursery set up. I still have to get things put on the walls, but at least she has a room now with furniture! =) Her walls are light grey and we have pink chandalier patterned bedding. I just love how it came together. Thanks Nana for all of the nursery stuff! Our little girl is all set!! Preston even went through his toys and created a box of "baby toys" for baby sister. He was pretty cute about the whole thing! Such a big boy! She is getting bigger too! Our doctor is estimating that she will be the exact same weight as Preston 6lbs 12oz at birth. We will know soon. We have been debating when to schedule our induction. We could induce as early as Feb 13th, but that is Stephen's birthday and we think she will want her own special day. So then we discussed the 14th, but thats Valentine's Day, so not sure she would want that either! We had decided on the 17th, but our doc was booked that day, so we are now officially scheduled for February 18th at 7:30am (unless she decides to come early). We can't wait to meet our little bundle! Only 10 more days and we will be a family of 4! Can't wait!! Here are some pics of our last sonogram and her nursery. We are ready!!

Celebrating 9 Years

It's hard to believe that its been 9 years since I married the man of my dreams! I have to say that these 9 years have truly been a dream come true. I am so incredibly blessed to get to spend this amazing journey we call life with my very best friend! And what a fun journey its been so far! I can't wait to see what the next few years have in store for us! Here is a glipse at the beautiful flowers Stephen sent me at work, he always does such a great job! I am the luckiest girl in the world! Thank you for being my husband Stephen Mota, you make my every dream come true! I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you!

Surprise Shower!

A couple of weeks ago Stephen's parents had us over for dinner. Little did I know, they had a special little shower for sweet Kelsey planned. Stephen's family got together for dinner, had a sweet cake, cute girlie decorations and lot's of fun gifts! It was a special dinner with family to celebrate our sweet baby girl! So nice to be surrounded by so many wonderful people as we get closer to welcoming our baby girl into this world! Feeling truly blessed!
