2014, Looking Back

2014 has been quite a year
As I sit down to reflect I have to thank God for all that he has blessed my family with.. We have been very thankful this year.. Lily Jane has been the best blessing to us this year. We have watched her develop into a little girl, but she will still be my baby.. She turned 1 this year and started walking and our life has forever changed!!! She brings so much joy and spunk to our life. I would not change anything in the world. I am excited for all that God has in store for us in 2015... I have some big news coming to the Bloggity Blog.. very soon I can't wait  ( and no I am not having a baby :( ) I hope that we can have another baby soon!!! Hope you have had a great 2014 :) 


Lily Jane's 1st Birthday

Better late than never!!! I kept thinking I had already done a post on her 1st birthday but I guess I did not.

I had so much fun planning her 1st birthday.. My inspiration was Gold and Pink.. Gold is the new Black J I wanted her birthday very simple and family centered. Most of my family lives far away so she never gets to see them so I wanted her to be able to spend a lot of time with her. We invited are very close friends and then it was all family. I actually had a blast it was not to much for me..  I tired to make most of all her decorations and had a blast crafting for it at nights when she went to bed. I made the tissue paper garland, fabric banner, which I ended up, putting all her pictures on, painted the high chair and made the garland for that. I also made her number one shirt. I also wanted pink and gold tablecloths and could not find any I liked so, I just went and bought fabric to cover the tables.. It was the perfect day and I think she loved the CAKE!!!! I can’t believe I have a 1 year old.. better start planning for 2nd birthday....


Day after Christmas

I always love going shopping the day after Christmas!! It is a tradition that me and mom my always do. I feel like you get some really awesome deals.. Here are some finds that  I got!!!

Christmas Card/New Year

This Momma has been so busy that she finally got her Christmas/New Year card together. Since I was so late I decided to do  a Happy New Year so people can keep mine up longer :) I love my little girls faces in her photos. I just had to do the one when she had a crazy face because that is her… She just turned 1 in Nov and not everyone got to come so I wanted to showcase her!!! I love how they turned out!!!!


Weekend Recap!!

This past weekend was the best weekend that our family has had in a long time…. EVERYONE WAS WELL :) We started off my going to my husbands work party…Then we spent the day as a family (very hard to do these days with so much join on) We drove to a little town Thomasville and just did a little shopping and just hung out the 3 of us… It was so much fun. I adore any chance that I get to have family time.. Then we went home and let Lily Jane ride on her little bike and she LOVED it!! so glad she got it for her birthday. This little girl loves to be outside.. Then on Sunday we went to Church and then went to a friend of mines twins birthday and I love seeing Lily Jane play with others.. She goes to daycare and I don't get to see her playing with others much so it was amazing.. My mom also came to town to visit.. We love when LULU comes to visit. We also, to Lily Jane to go look at Christmas Lights on Sunday!!! We had a wonderful weekend :)
We are VEST friends 

Lily Jane Loves her Daddy and Carrots
