3 Month Countdown Is On!

As of today, Ashlynn is officially 9 months old.  And now sounding like every mom on the planet, where has the time gone?!

This also is a push for me to start putting together plans for her 1st birthday bash.  Naturally, thanks to pinterest, I've been brainstorming ideas for months, but now it's actually time to start putting some of those ideas into action.  With unpacking from the move and prepping the house in February and our St. Patrick's Day party in March, I don't want April to sneak up on me unprepared.

I know Ashlynn will grow up having plenty of requests for themed parties focusing on everything from Winnie the Pooh to Cookie Monster to Cinderella and probably more things that I don't even know about yet (seriously, what are some of these shows on kids channels?? Man, I miss some Dumbo and Fraggle Rock).  So with that in mind, I want to have a simple, yet whimsical and fun day celebrating her first year.

Inspired by the idea of a confetti party, here's my personal 'pinspiration' board...

Hopefully after moving in and unpacking my craft supplies, I can start putting some things together.  You know between tearing down wall paper, painting rooms, and sewing a quilt!

Happy Friday!


  1. I am freaking out about what to do for my Emma's 1st bday. It's also in April but on the 3rd.

  2. I am so glad pinterest is around now :) so many great ideas!

    PS- not sure if you're aware but you still have your captcha option selected on your comments so people have to write out a code everytime you comment. I removed it from the settings in blogger and it makes commenting a lot easier not to have to type in the code :) just an FYI a lot of people don't realize you can de-select it. I hardly ever get spam without it!

    1. OMG, thanks V! I thought I had turned that of ages ago! When I reply it doesnt pop up so I thought it was gone! Thanks for pointing it out, I freaking hate those things!!
