Thoughts while planning my little gal’s first birthday

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

 Have you ever just sat down and looked at your life? Looked at all of the beautiful people and the beautiful things that you encounter everyday? Just sat down and thought?  Today I sat on my balcony with my coffee and thought about Addie’s party. PAUSE. {R A N T} These past few days I’ve been so stressed out getting everything ready for her first birthday, which yes, it’s in a couple weeks, but I absolutely HATE procrastinating until last minute to do things, and there is so much to be done, so I’m trying to get most of it done now so I’m not waiting until last minute and stressing out even more. { E N D O F R A N T} But in all reality, I may be really stressed out, but I am so, so, so excited for her party! I hope that it turns out as great as I have it planned out to be! 

 The fact that my little girl is going to be one brings tears to my eyes. I’m sure that over half of you remember me announcing that I was pregnant a year and a half ago, and now, that little babe that was rolling around in my tum is going to be running around as a big ole one year old.

 I found out that I was pregnant with Addie at the most unexpected time. I was nervous, but my goodness was I excited. Addilyn changed me. She changed me. Not only did she change me into a mother, but she changed me into a completely different person and I can not thank her enough for that. 

 Time is such a funny thing, it really is. You go through so many days that just drag and drag, but then when you look back you wonder where the time has gone. Appreciate the time that you have with the ones that you love. You never know, someday you may wish to be able to go back in time. I’ll be celebrating my daughter’s first birthday in a couple of weeks, and I have no idea how the time went by so quickly. Sometimes I miss holding my sweet little newborn in my arms. 

Thanks for reading friends.

Celery coffee table

Tags

, , , ,

I’m usually not a big fan of coffee tables ESPECIALLY with a little one running around, and one with a glass top?! You’re probably thinking what is that girl thinking? Well what I was thinking was, $3!? There’s no way that I could pass that up, even if I sold it to make a few bucks or gifted it to someone! The truth is that even though I didn’t need it… like at all.. (My garage is filled with my projects) but I’m not one to pass up a good deal on a piece of furniture.

  This was the sweetie when I first bought her, not too bad looking even if I would have kept it this way.  
  Then with a little bit of celery chalk paint, waxes, and some love…VOILA!! Our rustic green coffee table is finished! 

Time flies

Sure everyone has heard of the phrase that “life’s too short”, but honestly it really is.

I have a dreamboat fiancΓ© and we have the most perfect five week old baby girl. (Five weeks old!? Already?!) These five weeks have flown by. I’ve realized that yes I take tons and tons of pictures everyday, and I can look back on those.. But I want more than that.

I want all of the good moments documented, I want words, I want to remember the things that I can’t catch on camera. I want to remember the different products we used, the different outfits we wore, the little things that were said, the different places we went. I want to remember as much as I can and that’s why my new goal is blogging. I want everything documented and if I’m having a bad day I want to be able to look back and realize it’s just a bad day, not a bad life.

I’m going to blog every week so I can remember things throughout our life.. Because life really is too short, and time really does fly by. I want to remember everything (well as much as I can) because it’s the little things that really matter.
