{baby shower} you are my sunshine

alice contacted me through etsy and asked about making her a custom baby shower invitation for her baby sister who's expecting her first baby and lives in germany. so needless to say, she wanted to make this shower extra special for niki. alice was thinking yellow because they didn't know the baby's gender and said she wanted to use the song you are my sunshine because she remembers niki singing it to their mom when she was young. so after lots of great ideas from alice i came up with this design. she loved it.

{baby shower} betty

betty's mother-in-law contacted me about invitations for a surprise baby shower. she didn't know what she wanted but she knew she wanted something stylish and gender neutral. i came up with lots of samples and this is the one she chose. it's so cute and it was great working with her.

{birthday invite} katygirl's 30th

what a sweet blessing to be surrounded by great friends.

this year most of my friends, including me, are turning 30. i don't know what to think about my birthday yet. i know this sounds silly but 30 doesn't sound as old as it used to. but i'm still wondering when i'll feel like a real adult, because so far i don't. it seems weird for me to think that i have two kids, and that my oldest is going to kindergarten in the fall, i'm surely not old enough for that!

anywho, scottyboy asked davi, lori and i to throw a party for our dear friend and we all joyfully accepted the task.

We divided the duties and i got the best job, making the invites and party favors.

{confessions} over chai tea

katy just started this "confessions over chai tea" deal on her blog and i love the idea! so i'm linking up with katygirl to tell one of my confessions.


so... i have a confession.

i'm a loser.

last night i was running behind, having spent a good portion of my afternoon reading blogs and chatting on google, with a little laundry in the middle somewhere, i guess that's what i get. we were going to a basketball game and i needed to make dinner before so we didn't fall into the fast food pit once again. i put a few chicken breasts into the oven and went and got myself ready. i soon realized i didn't have enough time for the chicken dinner i was planning so i quickly changed the game plan. i fixed the new dinner menu and continued rushing around the house to get out the door and into our seats at the arena before tip off. i was successful at that! we had a great time at the game and riley actually understood the concept of the game, to get the ball into the net, and cheer like crazy when the yellow team made a basket. we spilled a soda and ate candy in our seats. it was a great time. we came home 2.5 hours later to a HORRIBLE smell, we thought it was left over from our shameful hot dog dinner, we gaged and cracked a few jokes, then it hit me...THE CHICKEN! i had left the chicken in the oven for over 3 hours. and it was WELLLL done! i immediately pulled the dish out of the oven and put in the sink and started the water. before andrew could even warn me about what i had just done, the dish shattered into a million pieces.

i know, way to go!

{new year's card} rea and tim

...we've been through thick and thin, braces, breakups, weddings, deaths, cartons of ice cream, c-sections, parents, pets, births, fights, painting, diapers, in-laws, get the idea. she's my very best friend from day one. i love her {and that adorable baby} all the way to her toes. she was thinking ahead and planning for her procrastination and decided to do a "new year's" card instead of a christmas card. good thinkin sister.

{valentine's day cards} riley t

when i picked riley up from pre-school this afternoon i noticed the notes on the classroom door. normally i'm in a huge rush and i don't really take this preschool stuff very seriously but today i had an extra minute to actually look around and read the notes. his class is having a valentine's day party and he needs to bring 12 valentine's cards. so i whipped up these super cute robot valentine's.

when we were talking at lunch he said he was called "riley t" today at school and said he hated that nickname, he has no idea why they would call him that so i'll have to explain it later, but i thought it was cute that he hates it. i thought it was only appropriate to sign the card riley t.

i'm feeling so on top of things. valentine's day is still 3 weeks away and coming from the girl who just sent the last of her christmas cards out on monday i'm looking good!

cupcake toppers to match coming soon.

{christmas card} tabs

i know it's the 27th of January and all but i just finished sending out my christmas cards...this week. i could not get my act together before christmas and then i caught the mother of all colds. so i decided that "better late than never" was going to be my motto. this year, as in 2011, i'm going to work on getting organized and one of the first projects is my christmas card list. it's a mess and needs a serious overhaul. if you didn't get my card i'm so sorry don't take it personally, it's me not you!
