Maternity // My baby momma

As we enter the month of February my family will be embarking on some new territory. We will be adding a new addition to our little family, on the 12th we will be expecting our baby girl, Rowan Grace. It's going to be so different with a little girl since we've been so use to having our baby boy Colton in our lives for the past 3.5 years. It will be a good different, we seriously can't wait. BUT, as much as I want to go into it today, I will wait till she gets here to talk more about our experience. So for now, here is a quick maternity/family session we did last week.

Re-Focused

The month of February absolutely threw me for a loop, being out of our house and living in a hotel for two weeks wasn't cool at all, especially with a 2.5 yr old. Long story short, we had to leave our place due to a black mold (which became airborne) situation that occurred from a leaking kitchen sink/disposal. So a "few days" turned into two weeks and with that came a whole lot of headaches and stress from all directions, which made life challenging. I can go on and on about it, BUT I'm just happy that it's over and we're moving on with life. 

Not that being out of the house for two weeks wasn't bad enough for our routine, but we actually had a scheduled 3 day mid week getaway planned a few days after our return home. In fact, we almost cancelled it, but we decided it was much needed after all that stress we just went through, so last week we headed up to Big Bear for a little family R&R. Luckily we did because we caught the end of a little snow storm, which actually worked out great for us because Colton was able to experience real snow for the first time. Last year we went up around the same time and there was zero snow, so we had to go to Bear Mountain and play in man made snow, it sucked. Anyways...needless to say this year was much better all around and was well worth the quality family time we had together, truly priceless.

BUT now that we are back and have no plans of leaving soon, it's time to re-focus on life and my business. Throughout these past few weeks I've been trying to re-establish my website, update it with new photos and make it more informative for the new year. I would say I'm about 90% there, there are still a few pages I need to add, more pictures to switch out and some other minor tweaks, but for the most part I'm pretty happy. From there my plan is to focus heavily on my marketing and potentially start working on some personal projects I've had on my mind for awhile.  

Oh and I'm stoked to start riding my bike again! Time to get consistent. I will leave you with a few black and white images from last week.

Off to Vegas! Pellicer Reunion

When I was a young lad my dad's side of the family ALWAYS had parties and get togethers, like seriously all the time. Well, like most Filipino families my parents loved to gamble, like Vegas style! I can remember every July 4th my family and a bunch of my aunts, uncles and cousins would roll up to Vegas, Circus Circus was the happening spot back then (well for us anyways). This continued for many many years, but then it seemed like after my dad passed away in 2000, the get togethers, parties and such kinda stopped, sad I know, I don't know if it was my dad that was the partier or what, but it was a bummer!

Then recently the idea of having a Pellicer reunion began to ruffle arounded, it came down to two locations, Palm Springs or Vegas? Duh? Of course the big hit amongst us all was Vegas, so what the heck, today we're off to Las Vegas for a Pellicer Reunion/Easter weekend. Thank you to my cousin's for planning and making it all possible! I know tons of time and effort went in and I appreciate it! I'm so stoked to see my sis and her fam from Minnesota, my cousin's from Atlanta and distant relatives from Mexico City and of course all the local family here in OC.

More to come and of course pictures to go with it, but for now check out this old school pic of our fam. LOL love the "P" sweaters! Check me out at the bottom right. Oh make sure you to follow me on Instagram @thomaspellicer I'm pretty sure I will be taking some cool pics.
