I’ve been fine tuning my tutu making skills.  I usually make a matching headband. Hallo First Birthday, Pink and White with a Purple Ribbon Advertisements

Two Months Later!

And two months later I post again.   My baby is no baby, he’s walking and dancing!

It’s been a busy summer with a Sesame Street 1st Birthday Party, a Fiesta Bridal Shower & a 40th Anniversary party.  One wedding down, three more to go this year.

We’ve gone to the zoo, a baseball game, many street fests, the water playground, a dude ranch, water park, the beach, ridden on a boat…  You name it and my one year old has done it.

One of the best parts is a new girl in the family! My niece was born last month.

Too Much To Do!

I am finding it increasingly difficult to get done what I want!  I have so much to post, but between getting baby’s birthday party, a bridal shower and an anniversary party planned, trying to find time to apply to jobs, cleaning up after baby, making dinner, running errands and working, I am spread thin!

I am excited to share decorations that I’ve made for the birthday party.  Unfortunately, my landlord is working near the computer, where I need to upload some new photos.  Ahh!

On another note, Memorial Day weekend was wonderful.  Lots of quality time with the family: parks, beach, grilling, eating outside, meeting up with friends, breaking out the new baby pool.  I have decided I could live anywhere and have a great life as long as I have my two guys : )

Photo Contest and a Workshop

I’m very excited!  I am doing two things to work towards my goal of getting more experience in this photography thing.  Today I took Rowan to the Botanic Gardens, it turned out to be a gorgeous day.  They are having a spring photo contest so I took a bunch of photos, in addition to some for my sister who is requesting some wall art.  I can’t decide.  Here are a few (I have a thing for black and white):

Regarding the photo workshop, my sister sent me a Groupon for a 3 hour workshop at the Chicago Photography Academy.  I’m very excited, hopefully, it won’t be too basic and I will learn something!

Neighborhood Find


Got to love Payless!  White baptismal shoes online are almost $40 online.  I found these for $14.99 and they had a BOGO 1/2 off sale (can’t stand that word) so I bought another pair.
