  • I turned 30 last week, which means Ken and I are finally in the same decade. Hehe
  • Ava has had 2 colds in less than a month. Her sleep at night has been CRAY.
  • Erin has been really into singing these days. Itsy Bitsy and Ring Around the Rosie is on repeat like all the time. Hah. She can sing the same song for 20 minutes straight.
  • I only just recently realized how OCD Erin is.
  • Ava is 10 months and not crawling, but she's an eating machine. Current favs: Noosa yogurt, rice and soup, cottage cheese with jam, toast with cream cheese, puffs, eggs and pasta.
  • Ken and I are celebrating 4 years of marriage this month! It actually falls on Thanksgiving day this year.  
  • I'm currently really into the show, Designated Survivor. So good. 
  • It's going to be Christmas in a month! 
  • My postpartum baby hairs are looking real wild. Ugh. 

Planning Ava's First Birthday

November 9, 2016

It's already that time again. Been busy planning Ava's first birthday! It's crazy that it's already almost here. As time consuming as the planning can be, it's a chance for me to get my creative juices going so I enjoy the time creating things and making things personal.

Theme: Wildflower

My Inspiration:
  • The book "How to be a Wildflower - a field guide". Has anyone read or looked through this book? It's the cutest! It's a guide full of little notes and colorful drawings. After flipping through a few pages, I knew I wanted to incorporate it somehow into Ava's birthday.
  • I've also really been into ferns and greenery, so I thought it'd be perfect to incorporate that into the theme.  
  • Ava is quite the spunky gal. Thought it'd be a fitting theme for her.
