Cool Stuff

Well....after all this planning tomorrow is the big party day!  I want to thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and advice through this crazy time.  It's been a lot of fun for me!  I think things will turn out great and the most important thing is memories are made and fun is had! 

Connor's actual birthday isn't for a couple more weeks.  I have a three day weekend this week and it helps because my Mom and Dad are able to come in from Arkansas and this gives them more travel time and more time to spend with us! Yeah!  They are on their way RIGHT NOW and I hope my Mom knows I am going to put her to work helping me when she gets here ;)
I was trying to get a few photos of Connor in his birthday shirt he'll be wearing tomorrow.  Ashley at She She Made did a FABULOUS job and it's exactly what I envisioned it would look like.  Thank you Ashley we LOVE IT!
It's so hard to take a picture of this booger right now!

These are some things I am loving right now...
If I ever throw another party these are some fun things :)
Love this bookshelf - Just because....
Paper Straws Here

Initial Lollies Here

After this past year I have promised myself to give up on the owls.  I know Connor will probably not be into them as he gets older and as I start to think about a "big boy" room I'm sure it will completely change.  Whether it's airplanes, dinosaurs, sports, or whatever....I just hope it's not Yo Gabba Gabba or Barney...Lord help me!  He's really starting to talk more and babble and it's so cute!  He is standing now, but afraid to take that first step.  He just freaks out when you let go of him!!! 
Last night my boys took me to dinner at Red Hot & Blue.  Poor Terence is a big blur.  I HATE MY CELL PHONE CAMERA!!!!  We had a good time going out together and Connor enjoyed his Cheerios while we devoured ate our BBQ.  Oh! And we also hit up Braum's ice cream for $1.50 double dip ice cream cones!  I'm really enjoying this 70 degree weather this week....it's such a nice change from the winter weather we've been having. 

I hope you all have a great weekend and I hope to come back on Monday with lots of party pics to share!

Oh-and I took down the Disqus comments....it was getting on my nerves!!!

That bookshelf is amazing! I'm not sure just how practical it is, but I can't help but love it!

Can't wait to see how it turned out...have fun!

Karen At Home said...

So excited that your party is finally here!!! You have been working so hard!

BTW, love the new blog design and that you took down the DISQUS comments. DISQUS never seemed to like me anyway, I never knew if my comments were posted.

Have a great weekend and happy birthday Connor!!!

Hope your party was wonderful - can't wait to see the photos! I LVOE that owl shirt on him. You're absolutely right to do whatever theme you want this year. The future will hold all kinds of action figures and who knows what else for these little boys. Mama has to have her fun now! :o)

Debbie said...

thanks for getting rid of disqus...for some reason it was always really hard for me to leave comments. i can do it on other pages with disqus..weird. anyway, i love his owl shirt and can't wait to hear all about the party! :)

Krista said...
