{A visit, a First Birthday and I won!}

This is a Hodge podge of the last few weeks of my life. I am catching you up, if you will ūüôā

My parents came out to visit for a week and celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday. I am¬†resolving¬†to take more pictures in my life, HOWEVER I failed¬†miserably¬†at that while they were here. The nice thing is we did LOTS of¬†relaxing¬†and hanging out, and TONS of laughing. I did manage to snap this picture right before they left – my daughter in this¬†picture¬†just kills me. Zane is a hoot every day. We have so much fun.

Last Friday evening, one of my best friends proved to be much more crafty and¬†creative¬†than she likes to let on ūüôā Above is Katie pictured with her sweet daughter Kenzie – Kenzie turned 1!! Katie threw her a Technicolor dream party! It was AWESOME!¬†Particularly¬†the rainbow cake she made. It was¬†incredible¬†to say the least!It was super sweet, but was perfect for a sweet treat to celebrate a first birthday!I think Kenzie liked all the colors! She is an early to bed kind of baby, but she did really great and was a very hospitable host for her party ūüôāFor the party, I made Kenzie a Rainbow shirt to help her celebrate, and YES I was totally that mom and made my daughter one too so they could be matching. WHAT?!?!?!? We can only do that for so long before they start to roll their eyes at me!!¬†I am going to make some of these shirts for the holiday bazaar I am involved with middle of November. Should be fun! Now taking custom orders!

Lastly – I WON A BLOG GIVEAWAY!!! It is the first time I have ever won one! It was from one of my new blog friends Janean from¬†Umbrella By the Sea.¬†The box came in the mail today, and I was so excited! There is some great bakers twine, little snack cups, just a whole bunch of cute random stuff {including Jelly Belly’s – HELLO!!}. I am looking forward to finding¬†things¬†to do with everything! There is a three¬†piece¬†chalk board I am¬†thinking¬†about using to¬†advertise¬†at the holiday bazaar. We will just have to see. All of this winning a give-away has me thinking I need to set up a give away soon!!! It is so much fun!!

Have a GREAT day today! Happy Halloween – don’t eat too much candy!!
