Well Landyn’s first birthday party was a success. I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!

A few thank you’s:
  • TomKat Studio for the adorable “cupcake” collection and making our invites and cupcake toppers that were such a hit.
  • The girls over at How Does She for the continuous inspiration and party ideas. And answering all my emails about how to do this and where to find that…
  • Emily at Tiny Belles Boutique for designing the perfect outfit for our cupcake theme (she even matched the cupcake on the onesie to TomKat’s invitations).
  • Icing’s Designs for giving me that adorable party hat that Landyn would not keep on her head. (I’m saving it for next year)
  • The lovely Martha Stewart. For your easy DIY pom-pom tutorial. Saved my life!
  • Hostess with the Mostess, Eat Drink Pretty, Little Birdie Secrets, Pen, Paper, Flowers for being my party inspiration. You guys are so talented!
And of course my amazing family who helped make this party possible. Especially my hubby who shook his head at every idea and thought I was a crazy women for putting so much effort into a one year old birthday party. 🙂
I am so excited to be having my very first giveaway starting tomorrow hosted by my dear friend Taylor. Through this year, Taylor of the Undomestic Momma has become not only my mentor and guide, but a friend. Her talent and big heart amaze me as does her patience and will for life. I feel so honored to have Taylor hosting this giveaway for me! Go stop by Taylor’s blog starting TOMORROW to enter the giveaway. 🙂

AND I make you wait…

my birthday girl
I realize I promised you all on Friday that I would post pictures of the “big” one year old’s birthday party, but I lied. I was SO busy being hostess that I only got random shots of the day. I am in the process of gathering all the photos from my family, and then I will pick and choose the best photos to share with you all. Bare with me. I hope everyone had a safe and happy weekend. I am in clean up mode and trying to get organized.


I am loving the new print on the TOMS cultural anthropology slip-ons. They are just added to my wish list. AND for every pair of shoes your purchase, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need. Buy one, Give one. Nordstrom’s sells them for $53.95. Stylish.Comfortable.Reasonable.Love.
Thank you all so much for Landyn’s sweet birthday wishes! You are all so kind. Look out Monday for “our little cupcake” birthday party reveal. I have been in over my head in party details and I promise to catch up on all your blogs next week. Have a great weekend friends!

Happy 1st Birthday Landyn
