Birthday Adventures.

One Year. The last year has been a crazy love filled adventure with our little boy, Chase. He fills our home with laughter (and cries because he hates his crib), excitement, joy, worry, doubt, and so much love and happiness. It has been a true blessing to be his Mama. Watching him grow continually amazes me and my heart overflows every time I see him smile.

Here's a peek at the little party we threw for his big day. 

Of course it's not a party by me unless there are a few DIY's involved. Chalk art, chocolate tree cake toppers, and a Chase face banner from these sweet faces!

We filled our house with family, reminisced about the last year, and celebrated with cake! His smash cake was a success, especially considering that Chase usually pushes away anything but puffs. Not this time, he downed the top layer in two bites!

And so the adventure continues...

Pot Rack to Pretty.

I have a problem. A shiny objects, must own that necklace kind of problem. I have gone through jewelry wearing phases in the past but for the most part I've kept it pretty simple in the jewelry department. And since getting engaged and married has left a ring permanently on my hand (which I absolutely love), there's no use in buying more rings. Necklaces are the next best thing and since I don't seem to have an issue with inexpensive costume jewelry, it's a win/win.

There was only one more problem. Since my new found obsession can't just be thrown into a pile, I needed something other than the small pot rack (don't laugh) I was using to hold my growing collection. Keith was away for the night so I decided to meander through Home Depot and see what I could find on the shelves for cheap.

I was on the lookout for a simple project. A few wooden stakes, a box of hooks, paint from the basement, and a gold pen for some arrow detailing. 

From pot rack to pretty, no more tangled messes and room to grow! Ok, now where do I find my next addition? Any favorite places to shop?

Happy Heart Party.

We don't need an excuse to have a baby party, we get together every Thursday and do that. But if we have an excuse, all the more reason to party with the moms and babes. It was filled with lots of adorable banners, sticker crafts, and heart shaped pizzas, french toast, and pastries! The kiddos exchanged Valentine's and it was cutest thing ever. 

I DIY'ed ours this year using felt sticker mustaches that the kids could wear!

The party also had balloons. And for this little man, that made the party. :)

I am so grateful for all the love in my life. Today and every day after, show the people you love how much you care for them. Do something wonderful for a stranger. Love on everyone. Happy Heart Day!
