Two Lil Mommas


This is my oldest and dearest friend, Kristen. Isn't she the cutest lil momma you've ever seen? Believe it or not, she is 37 weeks preggers in this pic. She is teeny tiny! Kristen and I first met in preschool at the age of four and we have been friends ever since but I rarely get to see her these days. Kristen and her husband have been missionaries overseas and now they live in South Carolina. But somehow we always manage to pick up right where we left off regardless of how much time is past. That's a testament of true friendship!

Kristen at 37 weeks and Yours Truly at 30 weeks

I was able to attend Kristen's baby shower and she received so many beautiful sweet things for baby Mary Jane. If you would like to follow MJ's arrival, check out Kristen and Corey's blog here.

Gone Fishin'


A few weeks ago, Addi Girl had her first fishing trip with Granny Ham and her Great Aunt Charlotte.


It wasn't long before she had her first fish on the line...



...she insisted that it be thrown back immediately. Once it was out of the water, Addison didn't want anything to do with that slimy, floppy fish.





I think this expression perfectly summarizes how she felt about fishing.



I don't think fishing will be this girl's favorite past-time but perhaps horseback riding will be:)

Olivia the Pig Party


This year, we celebrated Addison''s birthday with an Olivia the Pig party. Olivia is by far her very favorite cartoon and she can watch it for hours on end. It was such a fun day and Addison was excited to have all her favorite people come to her party. Below is a peek at her special day....


We kept the menu kid friendly and slightly "pig" themed with pigs in a blanket, cheesy ham sammies, heart-shaped PBJ's, spinanch dip, pasta salad, strawberries with fruit dip, red velvet cupcakes and ranchy cheese-its. 



Addison's birthday is the week of Valentine's Day so I incorporated lots red and pink into the decorations.

Addison gave her pint-sized party goers V-day M&M's and red, homemade playdough in their favor bags.



The cake didn't turn out quite like I imagined or really anything like the pictures I gave the bakery. Oh well. Addison could have cared less and the cake was absolutely delicious. That's all that matters right?





I found Addi Girl's birthday outfit on Etsy here.



This bubble blower was her favorite birthday gift and is still one of her go-to toys.
