I lead a glamorous life friends. Until then we shall strive toward peace on our little part of earth by diapering and plugging our child.
This too shall pass.

What's a party without something to wear? ChubbyFeets on Etsy...she's delightful to work with (honestly), I purchased the pants add-on and had her do a crescent moon shape on the top, rather than the bow tie and it is perfect, she chose just the perfect cut of fabric to make the moon. Fast service and shipping and GREAT prices. Cannot wait to see the little birthday girl don these. All the better to snuggle with her after the party. She was fast, like maybe even fast enough for you to get some for Christmas!
This years party will be a lot more low key than the first birthday, but I am looking forward to it all the more for that reason. And the menu as requested by the birthday tot: pizza & "pop" (7up). Now I am off to spray paint, bake and scour my brain to find a small party game for the littles. And will maybe whip up some small favors too, I mean I have a whole 48 hours to do all of this (and clean the bathroom).
|Santa's elves are very busy sanding and painting and hammering and accessorizing!|
|I loved watching Mr. K sand this to see all the different colors it has been for different kiddos (it's been pepto pink, country blue, and primary yellow) for Sloane it will be Overalls Blue by Valspar|
|We found this at Lowe's...Blue is her favorite color|
|This is Dylan Velvet, it looks a little too gold on my screen, but it's for the accents|
|Go to amazon they have lots of M&D 25% off today!|
|Your chicken costume-- you were very conflicted about Halloween & it's traditions|
|looking so grown up|
|happy & relaxed (and not the day of the wedding)|
|linking up with Stephanie|
|my mom made the cake, all the sugar cookies and chocolate cookies too...delicious|
|all my lovely friends in jewel tones|
|sitting in a candy apple red 1956 Cadillac|
|my sweet little flower girl|
|Do I look as freezing as I was? Chilly day, warm hearts...|
|My sister did a loofah beehive for the occasion|
|my take on a brooch filled boquet, brooch-dazzled shoes and my grandma's travel case|
|Our father-daughter dance was ALL fathers and daughters|
|Listening to the toasts...|
|Vintage sheets & a tablecloth 1.00 each|
|Yard sale finds-- 10 cents each|
|vintage spools, stamps and lovely little milk glass|
|1969 Southwestern Bell logo cup... I can't resist weird orphans|
