29 years… (WW#5)

Today is my last birthday. Every year from here on out will just be anniversaries of my 29th birthday. 😉

Seriously though, I’m incredibly blessed to have the most amazing friends/family/coworkers. They took a day that I wasn’t really looking forward to and made it amazing!

So, Happy Birthday to me! ♥

Also, the sweetest little 2 year old serenaded me with a song first thing this morning. ♥ ♥ My cup runneth over.

One Year…

Our Queen of Hearts

Our Queen of Hearts

My sweet Savannah turned 1 on July 3rd. I can’t believe that it’s been a year. She brings so much joy to our lives. She is so different from her sister (yet they are a lot alike). It’s been amazing to watch her grow and learn and to see the love she has for everyone around her.

I found a red dress on clearance after Christmas and when I saw it I knew it would be her party dress. She is our Queen of Hearts so naturally we did an Alice in Wonderland theme.

Scarlett was Alice.


The perfect Alice

And of course our Queen of Hearts.

Queen Bee

All hail the queen!

I made the crown out of lace! Isn’t it adorable? I call that a Pinterest win! A friend gave me the idea and she got it here from Tatertots and Jello (I LOVE the name of her blog!).

We had lots of yummy food, and Adam’s Aunt made the cake. She did an amazing job and even whipped up some strawberry tarts. (They were SO good!)

Tea Party

Note the flamingos 😉

Cakes fit for a queen!

Don't these look yummy?!

I had grand plans to make a cute fabric banner to go on her high chair, but it just didn’t happen. I realized I had some crepe paper streamers left over from another party and decided to bring them with me at the last second. I think it turned out pretty darn good!

We ate lots of yummy food, and spent time with our family and friends. We opened gifts, and got lots of cuddles from this special little girl that we love so much.

Make a wish!

Hmm, I'm not sure...
