Zoey’s First Birthday!

So I have officially made it through my kids’ birthdays & Halloween. My bank account is feelin the pain, so of course now we’re on to Christmas! πŸ˜‰ {Not complaining, I SWEAR. I LOVE me some Christmas time!!!}


I can’t believe that my little Zoey is already ONE. What is it about the first year that it just ZOOMS by? SO weird. She’s a sassy little thing, my Zo. Buuuut what can I say? I love that about her. Her birthday was supposed to be “cupcake” themed… but that didn’t really happen. It was pretty much just a party with lots of pink & purple streamers & table clothes. πŸ˜‰ Ya know sometimes you just gotta roll with it.

Her REAL birthday was on the 6th. So she got this adorable little cupcake that night. As you can see… this was before I ditched the cupcake theme. πŸ˜‰

I still just can’t get over the fact that she’s one, or that Jace is three. Like… VPK is in my near future peeps. WTH.

Maybe I should buy some extra cupcakes now… in advance… to accommodate the impending stress eating? No? You’re right… that’s probably not a good idea. πŸ˜‰



Her Minnie & mini cake! {You see what I did there? πŸ˜‰ } I think they were just ADORABLE.


She cried when everyone sang “Happy Birthday” & again when it was time to wipe all of the smash cake off.

I am happy to report that she finally has some girl toys (thanks, everyone!) After pretty much playing with trains & munching on Hot Wheels her entire life. Mommy’s excited to get a little princess action going on up in here. I actually had a hard time picking gifts out for her. I don’t know if being a boymom comes more naturally to me or what… but in Toy Section Land of the store… I feel a little lost when the aisles turn pink.

Grandma got Zo one of those cubey bookcasey thingies that you put the cloth bins in, ya know the little bins that you fill with toys? Whatever… if you know what I’m saying… I LOVE THOSE THINGS. Jace has one too & they’re the best. So we did some rearranging of Zo’s room so that she can actually go in there & play now. πŸ˜€ Which means that my kids rooms are pretty stinkin cute looking {or at least getting there} but not their closets. Nooooo…those are more like a dark space of clutter & shame. πŸ˜‰ I’ll get those together someday. Pinterest {yes, I know that I have a problem…} even has some awesome ideas for organizing kid’s closets. Let me just add that to the list of 8gazillion Pinterest projects I’ll probably never get around to. Don’t even act like you don’t know EXACTLY what I’m talking about either!

In other news…
I bought my wedding dress! Well, my grandma bought my wedding dress. BUT I have a dress all the same. Which is good, considering March 14th is coming up FAST!!! I suppose I’ll get a little tab going on here for wedding related stuff soon. πŸ™‚

So... Pinterest strikes again. I may or may not have stuffed Zoey INSIDE of a pumpkin. In my defense, it...
