Hey Hey! It’s Friday!

Hello hello! Anyone else shocked it’s Friday? I am!

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week!

1. I be draggin’. I’m pooped. Elizabeth’s First Birthday tomorrow can not come soon enough. But it’s been a fun week so far preparing and having family in town! The rest of the family comes tonight and the high events begin tomorrow!

2. Speaking of party planning, I am having a blast planning with my mom. She is amazing! I haven’t had so much fun before “shopping” my house for things to use for our party. We also fussed with my kitchen table, which will be the food area for the party. Here’s our working plan.

3. My mom also managed to just throw together the arrangement over my fireplace. You should have seen what my attempt was first.

4. I managed to squeek out a few fun blog-related things! I’m teaming up with Tif at Bright on a Budget and Della at Della Devoted to do TWO giveaways! My particular favorite is the Naked2 Basics Pallet. You know you want one! Check out the post for details on how to win. (If you’re reading this now because of the giveaway, then hi!! Excited you’re here!)

5. I did my first 6 day recap for the 30 Outfits in 30 Days. I basically loved every single outfit, but this is how I felt about that awesome striped shirt with gold collar!

Love that striped shirt!

  1. That shirt really is awesome. And good luck with the party! Hope it’s a lot of fun. I’m wishing ours were tomorrow so that I could relax for the rest of the weekend, but the crazy planner version of me (how many times have I told myself to be more low key about this as it’s just for a one-year-old?!) continues until Sunday. Thank goodness for moms though, right? Love what yours has put together and love that mine’s showing up tomorrow with half the party food 🙂


    • YAY! Moms are the best. My mom just swooped in and had all these fabulous last touches to contribute. It was nice to have the party on Saturday, but we still had all the family here on Sunday. We had breakfast at our house and opened presents in the morning, so still pretty busy! Can’t wait to hear how your party went!!


  2. Umm her party looks like it’s going to be adorable! I’m excited to see what you are putting together 🙂 I think the birthday planning is just so much fun. Kind of stressful, but definitely fun 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!


  3. Hope Elizabeth’s party is so much fun for everyone! Can’t wait to see pictures. I love all the sneak peek of things you’ve been gathering with your mom. Looks like things are coming together nicely. Oh and that gold collared shirt is everything… 🙂


    • Thank goodness for my mom! She was a life saver. My brain turned to mush on Friday, and she helped out so much. And thanks to that gold collar, I’ve decided EVERY shirt I own now must have a gold collar. It’s just a requirement 🙂


  4. I hope you will have a great party day with your family and especially Elizabeth! When she is older, she will adore you for all the effort you do for her first birthday.
