Random Happies

Here are a few current etsy loves of mine...

If you have a little one this Easter, I think these cute fabric eggs from The Polka Dot Tot Spot would be a perfect basket filler.

I adore this military stripe t for my little Dean man. It is from b. childrens wear

This darling clock is from  Evgie and would be a-dorable in a play room.

               aren't these fabric leaves from Jane Joss  lovely?

 Find these sweet knot dresses as Fire Flies and Mudpies

I am thinking Dean needs a fun pillow for his upcoming big boy bed. I have a vision in my mind for his room update and this would go perfectly. It is from  Bontons Gifts .

and one more pillow...I love the idea of this with me and Jeremy's wedding date! It is from dedeetsy and I love it so....
I hope you are all having a good week. I am on a serious countdown for the weekend!

Strike a Pose

Lately my sweet Grace has been hamming it up for the camera, big time. I swear I pull the camera out and she practically breaks out into vogue.

In this shot she is cupping her hands as if she is offering me something, when she is in fact, holding nothing.
(isn't her alacrity designs shirt cute?)

                        and this is just so very Grace.

I love this sweet picture of my little parker girl

                 and the serious look off in the distance pose

and this one is my favorite! I tell her to stand still so I can take her picture, and this is what she gives me. Just look at this hand placement. I. Love. Her.
(this adorable dress is Matilda Jane and her headband is from Little Birdcage Boutique)

The Lion

If you are needing a photo prop for your baby boy, I urge you to embrace this lion.

I need someone to buy this, put it on their son's sweet head, and invite me over to hold him.
K? Thanks.

You can find this little lion at Nelly Bean Company

Dean's 2nd Birthday Party

I had so much fun planning Dean's party! I might or might not have began purchasing things for it here and there 6 months in advance. I have problems people, problems.

I was inspired by a little green, orange, and blue party I saw online and I just went from there.

I got this cute door sign from my favorite party paper store, Ciao Bambino! The colors I wanted matched her jungle line, so she just made it for me without the animals.

Ciao Bambino also made these "2" birthday stickers. They were so cute and easy to stick on the serving containers and the drink cups. I also just fell in love with these cute straws, and I thought the orange and green cream sodas were fun! I pulled the orange lava lamp from Dean's room and put cutie pie pics of him on the tables.

I tried to do all green, orange, and blue food. So, we had blue m&m's, spinach wraps, cantaloupe, honey dew, goldfish, carrots, and celery! 

The party poms hanging from the chandelier make it so festive, and I love that my mom knows how to make these now! They are also on etsy at Party Poms! Bonus? I get to re-use these for Grace's upcoming birthday party!

The cake was baked by a local bakery called Suzybeez. And see those cute, colorful polka dots on there? They are fondant toppers from Kids Cakes. These are great, and inexpensive. You can choose any color combo.

                                 singing to my big boy!

            Here is the birthday boy in his sweet party shirt from She She Made
I can't believe my baby boy is 2!! I have plans to remain in denial and continue to over baby him. Yes, that is my plan. I like it.
