Happy Friday all! It’s been a nonstop few weeks for me but I’ve finally had a bit of down time, and the opportunity to edit photos from my daughter’s 5th birthday party. My sweet girl has had her heart set on a Hello Kitty party for the last 5-6 months, but to make it a little more summery we tied in the Lemonade theme for an sweet sunshiny twist.
On Mother’s Day weekend we celebrated my baby girl’s 2nd birthday! Ah…I can’t believe she’s officially two now! I’m still amazed at how fast she’s grown. It’s difficult to grasp and most certainly bittersweet, but I’ve loved every moment of watching her blossom and reach new milestones. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
A few weeks ago we celebrated our daughter’s 4th birthday! Strawberry Shortcake was the theme of choice this year and I had a fabulous time pulling all the details together. What a perfect celebration it was! My family traveled from near and far and great friends joined us for good laughs, delicious food and a very special surprise for the birthday girl! Let’s just say the party was berry berry sweet!
Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’ve been busy getting plans in order for my daughter’s 4th birthday which is coming up in just 6 days. I can hardly believe it! The summer has surely flown. My sister will also be flying in from LA this Saturday and staying for a full week which means life is gonna be hectic here at home. Whenever things get a little crazy and I don’t have much time for fresh blog concepts, I rely on Instagram to share with all of you what I’m up to. An easy way to still feel connected throughout the chaos.
Fourth of July is only 1 week away and we don’t have big plans, but I’m still looking forward to the holiday! We’ll most likely throw a quaint celebration at our home with a few family members and if the forecast holds true, we’ll have sunshine and warm weather to look forward to! This is a bit of a rarity where I’m from. Usually we say our summer starts the day after the fourth as each year we seem to have rainy days through the holiday and then it magically starts to transition to summer on the 5th of July. Classy Northwest…real classy! Anyway, I have my fingers crossed that we’ll actually get to enjoy some time outdoors this year and avoid the rain altogether. I’m expecting that we’ll forgo our tradition of watching the firework show at the bay, but we will get to revisit this next year once our youngest is a bit older.
It doesn’t feel like summer around home, but I’m officially in party mode. I kicked off the 1st day of the season, by hosting a little soiree with some of my girlfriends. The 7 of us make it a point to get together at least a few times per month. We used to do this by meeting up at some of our favorite restaurants, but now that some of us have young babies, it makes more sense for us to get together at one of our residences. As mothers and close friends it’s important for us to have our girl time! We all know how crazy life can get and I love that regardless of how busy we are, we can all make the effort to connect…and catch up, laugh, eat good food and enjoy ourselves. Each of us usually brings a dish, an appy or a beverage to share and between all of us we end up with entirely too much food, but it’s always a fabulous time! Unfortunately 3 of our girls were missing from this past Friday’s celebration. I think we actually made enough food to feed them too, + more, but it’s nice to have the leftovers anyway.
This past weekend we celebrated my youngest daughter’s 1st birthday. Her actual born day falls on the 11th which is a special day to me not only because of her, but also because it happens to be my late Father’s birthday. I have to say, it was so nice to come together with close friends and family and celebrate. My baby girl had the most amazing day, full of smiles and lots of dairy free cake!!!
Happy Friday!! Hoping you all are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am!! We’re celebrating my baby girl’s 1st birthday tomorrow and then I get to kick my feet up and relax all day Sunday, for Mother’s Day. After all of the work I’ve put in lately, it will be nice to have a day just for me! The last few months have been super busy, and the days leading up to this weekend have been quite hectic to say the least so I feel very deserving.
Greetings. I hope everyone had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo! Mine was full of celebrations, but now that Monday is here the party is over (at least until next weekend) and I’m focusing all of my attention towards my baby girl’s 1st birthday. Time has flown!! I seriously can’t believe my sweet M will be 1 years old in just six days. As a result, I won’t have a lot of spare time on my hands, but I’ll do my best to keep you updated this week by sharing party planning snippets via Instagram.
