Party #1

The week of Grace's 4th birthday is here and the festivities have begun! Over the weekend we had a little party at the house for her with family. Coming up we will have a party with all her friends at a local jump place. I planned a rainbow themed party for her this year. I figured the jump place is all primary colors, so I just went with it. Rainbow it is!

Ashley gave me the idea to make lollipop centerpieces.  Hers were way cuter than mine, but these are fun and I am happy I will be able to use them at the jump party too!

              I filled a vase with skittles and added another vase of flowers. 
I had some party poms from Dean's party and my mom made me some more to complete the rainbow. I love these hanging from my chandelier. They are easy and so festive.
  here is my precious, precious girl. She was so excited, and looked mighty cute in her rainbow SheShe dress!

my friend Kelly made this fun rainbow wreath for my door. I adore this. 

                  The happy birthday girl!

and the cake...oh the cake. It was amazing! My parents ordered this from Suzy Beez and it was rainbow perfection.

It was such a fun party, and the fun is just beginning around here. Lots more pictures to come!!!

 Do you like the title? The most creative title I can come up with right now for my post about whales, is, Whales. So, there you have it!
I am loving all the cute whale items on etsy right now. They are sweet, fun, and so summery.

This onesie from Beluga Baby is so sweet. It also comes with sweet free shipping.

I love this whale hair clip. It is $5.00 from Neskat

This preppy whale pillow is from Girly Bird Boutique

and I have serious love for this minky taggie blanket. I do believe I would be adding a sweet monogram on here :) It is from My Raggy Obsession.

I love the heart whale bubbles. This is from Jasper Wren

Look at this c.u.t.e. set. It is called The Friendly Red Whale and you can find it at Bloomin' Bloomers.

for the no plastic toy family...this is super cute and made by Joan Orr.

and this darling summer dress is from She She Made and you know how much I love their stuff!
Happy Shopping!

Picks of the Day

Below, please find my baby gap picks of the day

Too bad I can't buy them. Remember that month long business trip my husband went on? Well, you see, while he was away I entertained myself by purchasing cute and unnecessary items for my children. Yeah, I am cut off.

You can purchase the white rosette dress here

 And the adorable floral boy shirt here

Petal Hats

I love these precious petal caps. I think if you are looking for something different for a newborn photo shoot, know, a trip to HEB, these hats would be a-dorable.

                 and look at this bloomer and headband set!  

You can find them at Girlie Bowtique!

Together Again

Please excuse my blogging absence the last week or so. I am happy at home tonight, taking a deep breath because my husband is home from a month long business trip. I am SO happy he is home, oh my goodness. By the end of his trip I didn't have the brain capacity to even link an etsy find on here. I tragic. I missed him terribly, and so did these two little angels.

 The kids had fun helping me make this poster for Jeremy. Grace picked out the stickers herself. Princesses and hunting. She covered both of their passions :)
I asked her some things about her daddy and wrote them on the poster. My personal favorite is "Daddy is so pleasant."

I am happy, happy, happy to have this man back at home. I feel I will have my blogging groove back again soon.   :)
