BABY #2 IN THE OVEN!!!

Oh my Gosh... I know I've been a really bad blogger! I hope you can forgive me for my absence, but as you can see I do have a very good reason.
I' m pregnant!!!
If you follow me on Facebook you probably already noticed, I recently announced that my husband and I are expecting baby #2 in April 2015. We are both so excited for this next chapter in our lives and somehow, this time, it's even more special to be able to share all this excitement with Sofia! She is so cute, she already loves to kiss my tummy and she already says she will be a big sister. We still don't know the sex of the baby and we have no preference, but my prediction is another baby girl.  Sofia's prediction changes everyday and my husband is just confused. LOL  We always knew we wanted more than one and not too far apart in age so this was perfect timing. The reason why I've been so absent is because pretty much since day one I've been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum which is basically severe nausea and vomiting all day long. My doctor prescribed me some medication to help control the nausea and vomiting, it did not stop the nausea and it made me feel really exausted, but at least it did control my vomiting.
 I remember getting some nausea and vomiting with Sofia, but this is a whole different story, morning till night, day after day, plus I had zero energy to do anything which was a little inconvenient when you have an energetic 3 year old at home running around and demanding your attention 24/7. We wanted to go on vacation to Portugal this year, but we had to skip that since I've spent pretty much all our vacation in bed... Fortunately, I've been feeling a lot better lately, vomiting is still part of some of my days, but it's way better then before and I am on less medication.  
Sorry for the details, not very glamourous I know!
I promise I will try my very best to keep you posted.

 For those that don't know yet here is the blog's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Claudia-Persi-Personal-Blog/295396037253862
I would love to see you all there.

I would love to know your predictions!

Baby Boy or Baby Girl??? 
 
Take care everyone!

SAUBLE BEACH

As promised in my last post from our recent trip to Owen Sound here are some of our photos from Sauble beach. I have to admit I was pretty impress with the water and the beach, it's very clean. It's about 3 hours from Toronto so if you live in the area and plan to go I suggest to stay for a few days and enjoy. There are some beaches in Toronto but they tend to be very crowded during the hot summer days and they aren't as clean, so for those that enjoy car rides and have a few free days Sauble beach is a great option. We had so much fun we are definitely planning on going again.

OWEN SOUND GETAWAY

 
Here I am again with some more family adventures. We recently planned a small getaway to Owen Sound. It's about 3 hours from Toronto by car. We stayed a few days and visited a few falls in the area and then we headed to famous Sauble beach, since it's only 20 minutes from Owen Sound. If you've been following my blog for a while you probably already noticed that we love to travel. I have to admit, we are really lucky to have a little girl that always loved traveling with us by car or plane. Her first trip was  Toronto- Montreal and since then she already visited NYC, Buffalo, Erie, Portugal, the Azorean islands...  I will be posting some photos of Sauble beach this week so stay tuned. Do any of you love car rides? What was your favorite car ride and why?

SOFIA'S BIRTHDAY PARTY

 
  
Sofia's birthday party was a success, we had lot's of fun, tons of delicious food, lots of desserts, open bar and lot's of great treats for the kids. I was very happy to see my little girl enjoy her birthday party so much. We bought her a bouncy castle where all the kids had a blast and now it's one of her favorite places to read when she's outside.
 Sofia's dress is from one of my favorite children's clothing store called " The Children's Place". 
Sofia's "Minnie" Cake and cupcakes were delicious!!! I couldn't be more happy with my choice of bakery. For more information and prices please check out their website @ http://www.cakeroyalecafe.com/
I am sorry for being able to post as much lately, but I am just enjoying the summer, since the winters in Canada are so long. The weather is been really weird in Toronto, it's been really uncertain, not the best summer weather for sure but it's way better then freezing cold so I won't complain.
I promise I will check in more often, trust me I do miss blogging but unfortunately as a busy mommy is not always easy to find the time.
Hope you all forgive me and still enjoy my blog even though I am not here everyday.
Take care everyone!

VISITING CASA LOMA IN TORONTO


My outfit was very casual since I knew I was going to walk a lot that day. Jeans: Juicy Couture; Shirt; Local Boutique, Sandals, Ring and Pink Bracelet: Guess; Watch: Michael Kors; Necklace: http://claudiapersi.tictail.com/products/necklaces; Sunglasses: www.firmoo.com; Handbag: I bought this bag last year, it's now on sale for $85 @ http://deuxlux.com 
 
Being raised in Montreal there is so much I still have to discover and see in Toronto, so we decided to pay a visit to Casa Loma. A wedding was taking place when we got there, it definitely brought me beautiful memories of my own special day. 
Casa Loma belonged to Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, he was one of Canada's most powerful businessmen, an ambitious financier who became wealthy through bold investments in electricity, real estate and mining.
He helped to bring electric street lights to Toronto and to develop the first Canadian hydroelectric generating station at Niagara Falls. In 1913, Pellatt and his wife Mary moved to Casa Loma, designed for them by architect E. J. Lennox. It was one of North America's grandest residences. Ten years later, the Pellatts were forced to leave after failed investments severely reduced their wealth.
Casa Loma was and continues to be one awesome spot for film producers, as you can see from all the posters in the basement of the house these are all movies that were filmed in Casa Loma.
If you come to Toronto don't forget to pay a visit to Casa Loma. 
For more info and tickets please visit:
After Casa Loma we went to one of my favorite neighborhoods in Toronto, Yorkville and enjoyed a really romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant.  We had an amazing time and the food was delicious.
 
Take care everyone!
