We had a little get together at the house for a few of her play group friends and family friends, and celebrated with family while we were over in Illinois the week after her birthday. I'm still behind from all of the party planning, partying, and traveling we did in May - but hoping I can get back on track with things around here in June!
We even found a fun way to incorporate cupcakes into her 1st birthday pictures...
We took her 1st birthday pictures two days before her actual birthday at Olan Mills, I was happy with how they turned out!
Her party was on her actual birthday, and we had fun watching her (slowly) tie into her cake, open presents, and play with the other kids that were there.
She was actually fairly dainty about eating her cupcake, and we didn't even have to change outfits! :)
In summation, it's been a whirlwind month, and I realize that most of my blog posts have been about our personal family life - as I've just been too tired to hunt down any good shopping finds. Now that I'm onto the second trimester in my pregnancy, I'm feeling more energy and a bit more up to the task of doing more than "just making it through the day"!
I've got a few things I'm excited about, that I'm going to share with you in future blog posts. One being her cupcake room items that finally all arrived (the company sent me some wrong items at first, but made it right) - and also some fun finds that I've found.... like the necklace company Cassia de Shanghai, where I'm anxiously awaiting a gorgeous necklace from that is on its way to me.
Other than that, hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend! And if you shop at Old Navy and like sales... they are having a major sale this weekend on summer items! I'm hoping to head over there later this afternoon to check out the baby items!
