Sofia 365: Day 81

Day 81: 5.30.12

Here we are! The whole memorial day weekend thing has been throwing me off, I keep forgetting what day of the week it is. It’s Wednesday, but it feels like a Tuesday… Like I said before, I can hardly keep track of the days anyway…

Ran a few errands today and bought myself a few cute things, an early birthday gift to myself… a pair of flats, and an adorable shoulder bag, perfect for Summer.¬†

I’ve hardly bought anything for myself in so long, I felt a little guilty. When money’s tight it’s hard to spend money on things other than groceries or bills, but it doesn’t hurt to be a indulgent a little once in a while. Plus, they were on sale anyway. ūüôā

Here’s Sofie’s pic of the day, she took a bit of a late nap so we took this shot after dinner. I really liked her outfit today, my mom buys her so many clothes, but she does a good job of picking things out. Pretty soon, this baby is gonna have more clothes than me!

Day 80: 5.29.12

Whew! Day 80! We’re about 1/4 of the way to 365 days!

Drove back early afternoon yesterday and got to my mom’s while Sofie was napping. She woke up a little while later, and had a happy surprise! She seemed groggy and disoriented, but generally happy to see me. She was full of energy the rest of the night, but I was just glad to see her!

Snapped a photo of her before dinner, she was being a slobbery little goof ball, playing with flowers again.

Day 79: 5.28.12

Aaaand, Monday. We’re almost caught up…

My last day without Sofie! I was sure missing her. Had a meeting all afternoon with some (soon to be revealed!) business partners talking about a new venture for my company, and theirs! I know I’ve been talking about this a lot lately, and I’m so excited to share it, but not yet!

Look at Sofie with the striped shirt and neon pants, girl be lookin’ like a hipster.

Oh, Belly.

Sofia 365: Day 78

Day 78: 5.27.12

Now to Sunday’s photo! Another beautiful day, but not quite as warm. I was bummed, I wanted to swim in the pool so bad. I had completely forgotten it was memorial day weekend, I mean, I usually can’t even keep track of the days of the week. Since Sofie wasn’t home yet, Jason and I decided to go out for some late night pizza up at one of my¬†favourite¬†restaurants on Capitol Hill. Via Tribunali, no joke, some of the best pizza I’ve ever had! I stuffed my face, without shame.

I love how mismatched Sofie is dressed in this photo, that sock and sweater combo cracks me up! Sofia is also holding a stuffed shark that my dad brought back from Hawaii. She seems to like it.


Sofia 365: Day 77

Day 77: 5.26.12

I really need to get caught up with these pictures don’t I? Got to my mom’s house early yesterday afternoon, thought about posting then but I wasn’t feeling very well. This weekend was pretty busy for me, a wedding trial, bachelorette party, and two weddings! It’s good that I’m busy though, I’m thankful for it.

Here’s Saturday’s photo, it was so warm and gorgeous out, too bad I was stuck inside working most of the day. I’m sure there will be plenty more nice weekends to come though. Not sure if Sofie had something in her mouth, her cheeks look pretty full. Good thing my dad is home now so my mom had some help wrangling her for photos.

Chubby Cheeks.

Sofia 365: Day 76

Day 76: 5.25.12

My mom was taking Sofie for the weekend on Friday so we left the house early to meet up with her for lunch downtown before they hoped on the ferry. Ate some delicious Thai food and did a little shopping at Nordstrom. Found a dress for Sofie on sale there, it’s super cute. Perfect for a special occasion.

After that I dropped Sofia and my mom off down at the ferry for the weekend. I swear, it’s never any easier dropping her off, it’s hard to watch her go!

I’m sure they had a great weekend, the weather was beautiful and I’m sure my dad was glad to have such a welcome when he got back home!

Sad Face

Sofia 365: Day 75

Day 75: 5.24.12

Sorry for the posting delays! It’s been an incredibly busy weekend! My dad got back from two and a half months in Hawaii late Friday night. I had work scheduled all weekend so Sofia went to my mom’s so my dad had a surprise when he got home.

This picture is from Thursday, trying to play catch-up… Photos for Saturday thru Monday will be posted once I get back to my mom’s this Tuesday.

Love this picture of Sofie, we had a lot of errands to run that day, and she was so patient and well behaved, I was impressed. I loved this whole outfit on her, she’s such a character.


Sofia 365: Day 74

Day 74: 5.23.12

There just aren’t enough hours in the day! I feel like I’m constantly up and doing something, but I’m not complaining. I need that. I need to keep my mind (and body) stimulated and working; boredom just doesn’t suit me. You can’t be a mom without learning to multi-task, it’s just part of the job. I’ve been doing work all afternoon and into the night after Sofie goes to sleep, tomorrow is posing to be a busy another busy day for me. Going to be taking a look at a few studio spaces to see if any would be a good fit for my beauty company… I think I may have found one I like, but I don’t want to jinx it…

Well, I should be getting to bed, with these allergies, chasing Sofie, and general bodily fatigue, I need all the sleep I can get.

Enjoy this picture.

Sofie didn’t want to wear pants this afternoon.

No Pants.

Sofia 365: Day 73

Day 73: 5.22.12

Just another drizzly Seattle day. My allergies have had me in a fog the past few days, and the day before I had a sore throat. I’m not really sure what’s happening with me, but it’s left me stuffy and generally groggy. The day went by slowly yesterday, but afternoon had us jam packed with action. I have been on the search for the perfect studio space for my business to grow out of and yesterday my search re-commenced. Working from home and travelling to clients isn’t so bad, but I would love to have a separate creative space that I can share with other like-minded people for mutual business growth. I think the rest of my day today will probably be spent on searching for studio spaces, crossing my fingers that something will pop up…

Last night was the finale of Dancing with the Stars, this season has had me pretty rapt, I really did like most of the dancers on the show, although I was rooting for Katherine. Too bad she lost, I thought she was the best of them all…

Oh well, I will probably do a post in the next few days for Sofie’s 14 month update, only if I can get her to be quiet long enough for me to do it.

Well, it’s back to work. See you all later!


Sofia 365: Day 72

Day 72: 5.21.12

It was pouring ALL DAY!

Even when I tried to duck out of the house for a bit with Sofie to run to the store, it was raining hard. Didn’t get a break all day, and the weather just started to seem like it was getting nice…

We were pretty much cooped up inside the house all day today, I just ended up baking some banana bread and doing laundry. I feel like I do laundry way too often…

Oh, and did I mention, I also chopped off part of my finger today making dinner. That added to a bit of the excitement for the day… It honestly didn’t hurt as bad as it looks, my fingers slipped while I was chopping onions and it ended up chopping my fingernail and skin instead.¬†Here’s the pic if you’re not squeamish. (I recently just started using Instagram, I like it! You can follow me at “missmichellemai”.)

Sofie was not very cooperative for photos today, it’s hit and miss, some days she’s really into it, other days she’d rather mess around with me and not listen to a word I say. This was one of those days… luckily I could get her to sip her water and stand still for a few seconds so I could get a semi-decent shot out of her… scowling, but still cute.

Scowly juice.
