^^ I never went to sleep before midnight the whole week before Zoe's birthday party. Making every tiny decoration like these cut out flamingo bodies for her donuts. Or that floral wall backdrop. It was all so much fun, but this may be Zoe's one and only birthday party, ha! ^^

 ^^ This picture makes me SO happy every time I look at it. Two of my favorite people. My best friend since the 3rd grade surprised me and flew in from North Dakota! The second I saw her I fell to the floor crying! I've missed her so much since she's moved away! Thanks for making Zoe's birthday that much more special Kimberly! ^^

^^ My girl Jordan, her little man Milo, and hubby Devin (who is dubbed JT because he looks just like Justin Timberlake). I LOVE this girl and was so excited when she showed up to the party! She cracks me up every time I see her, and loves to call my hubby "Coach" because of his name, Eric Taylor. She's the cutest! ^^
 ^^ Stella, Hailey, Luke, and Zoe! It's a miracle we even got a few babies lined up long enough to snap this picture! ^^
 ^^ This picture is just the cutest! My other BF Gavi flew in from Los Angeles to wish her a happy birthday!! ^^

^^ The little cut out I made for the boys of the party, so they wouldn't feel like they were being taken over by everything girly. Too bad it ended up being only the girls using it! ^^

^^ I can't believe I forgot to get a picture of this amazing cake my mom made for Zoe's party! Who wouldn't want frosted animal cookies on a birthday cake. YUM! So enjoy this half eaten cake a day later! ^^

^^ Zoe's birthday invites! I loved this little flamingo theme to go along with her costume. ^^
 ^^ Those open mouth kisses are just the best. Although Zoe didn't like the taste of my nose make-up so much, ha! ^^
 ^^ Zoe and Milo. Prom King and Queen, class of 2034! ^^

^^ When Zoe was born everyone would always comment on her furrowed brow expression. What better than having a "pin the furrowed brow on Zoe" game at her party! I don't think I'll ever take this down. It's just too funny!! ^^
 ^^ Baby Stella and her pretty parents! Shouldn't she be a baby model?! She's too cute for words! And SO independent! I can't believe all the things she can do at just 13 1/2 months! ^^

^^ Having friends with babies around the same age is so much fun! And Zoe loves watching these two littles, baby Hailey and baby Luke! Hopefully she starts learning from them and takes her first steps soon. Also, can we please note in the picture above little Luke's nose picking skills, ha boys! Love him!! ^^ 

^^ Zoe is all about the sharing. After "she" blew out her candle she reached in and wanted to feed me. She's going to be such a good big sister some day! ^^

Hey everyone! I'm writing this just after watching the longest football game of allll time. Gotta love the Seahawks! To anyone who watched that Seahawks vs. Cardinals game and the millions of missed field goals, was anyone else thinking of the movie Ace Ventura?? "Laces Out!" 😂😂😂

Now back to happy thoughts. We had Zoe's first birthday party over the weekend and it was so much fun! All that planning and prepping. Hours of staying of late, cutting, gluing, "pinteresting", baking. It all came together. Big shout out to all of our friends who made the drive out to celebrate Zoe and her big day! Thanks to my pretty mama with helping me with the desserts. And even bigger shout out to my two best friends who flew in from LA and North Dakota. You ladies know who you are, and I love you!!! It was so much fun seeing all of the babies in their little costumes for Zoe's whimsical costume party. Who can pass up babies and costumes, am I right?

I sure love my little family! Can't wait to see what the next year brings us!

Until next time!


  1. This is the cutest thing I have ever seen!!!!! I want to steal this idea for Aiden's birthday in 3 months (but there's no way I could pull it off as well as you did ;) ). Zoe is adorable and it looked so fun!
