{Scenes from the Weekend}

Thanksgiving was awesome – but I seriously took NO pictures. So this is all you get – a place setting.

Completed a Photo Booth and mailed it to Virginia. This is the first project I have done and then shipped. I learned a lot in the process. I cant wait to see the finished product! Also very thankful for  new friendship! I will tell you all about that when I get some pictures!

Black Friday for us consisted of being lazy around the house, eating leftovers, and then heading to Seattle for the Tree Lighting & some dinner with family. Zane loved loved loved being outside and running around the closed streets, even though it was cold and rainy.

Zane also helped Mimi set up Christmas around the house…

All in all it was a great weekend! Hope you got to celebrate with family and friends! Happy Thanksgiving – now it is time to start thinking about Christmas!!!! YIKES!

{You are mailing what???….Where?}

Well folks – I had a JAM PACKED but very fun weekend! I participated in my first ever Holiday Bazaar! My Friend Katie put the whole time together and hosted it at her house (which is HUGE!) and I got to meet GREAT new people and have a lot of fun selling stuff that I created – how BOMB is that!** A special thank you to my sister Bekah for hanging out with me and bringing me Jimmy Johns to eat. You are the best.

I also started a project that is to be completed by THIS WEDNESDAY. Yes – THIS WEDNESDAY. It is a crazy long shot of a project that I am doing for a new friend. I am taking an existing PhotoBooth that I made, tearing it apart, SPRAY PAINTING/GLITTERING and putting back together – and SHIPPING it to Virginia for a very special girls camp for underprivileged youth. Here is a sneak peek:**Only one pin wheel was harmed in the tearing apart of this PhotoBooth 😉

I have never shipped anything of this size before, and this project has been a bit of a faith walk for me just to get it done in the amount of time I have and have it turn out the way I want it to and have the client happy – AH! But Alas, The message this weekend at church – “In God we Trust” was a good one for me. Putting my trust in Him this week!

Hope you had a great weekend – It is THANKSGIVING WEEK!!! We have been menu planning with the family for about a week – getting excited to spend some time with family!

{Happy First Birthday Zane!!}

Last Sunday, we celebrated Zane’s First birthday! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to help us celebrate!

As many of you know – I LOVE to celebrate! There is nothing I love more than throwing a party, So the opportunity to put together a fun party for Zane was one I just could not pass up!

I have put together a few picture collages to share the party with you:

{CANDY BAR} I had a great time choosing special treats for the table, including cake pops, chocolate dipped pretzels and Rice Krispie Treats all from Wanna Cupcake in Puyallup. Karie is so wonderful to work with, and she will do whatever you want – she is very creative. Look her up for your next party {or cupcake craving}!!!

I printed my own treat bags because I couldn’t find any I liked! More on that in this post HERE.

{PHOTOBOOTH} My labor of LOVE was the Photobooth backdrop – it took many late night hours, and help from both my mom and sister {THANKS GUYS!!!} to get this done – but I was VERY PLEASED with the result!

I was honored to have my mom and 86 year old grandma {Zane’s grandma and great grandma} here for the birthday party. These pictures of Zane with her Great Grandma Gloria from Minnesota are just about my favorite things ever. Priceless.

{CAKE AND PRESENTS} What party would be complete without cake and presents! Both of these items are “interesting” at a first birthday party. Zane didn’t like the cake, nor was she very excited about opening presents. I am sure her interest will grow with age.

What really made the party THE BEST was the friends and family that made it out – I LOVE doing life with all of you, and I am thankful for the part that each of you play in our life and in raising our baby.

I am going to upload even MORE pictures to my Facebook in the next week or so, but I will leave you with one more set of pictures…. some people need no props……
