Happy Belated V-Day

Yes, I know I am totally late on this post, but been so swamped with things going on in my life right now. Feels like the evenings on the weekends are the only times I can blog. Blah!

Happy SUPER belated Valentine's Day! I know a lot of people don't celebrate this today because you should love your mate everyday blah blah blah. I agree, but it is nice to take one day to really go all out.

This V-Day in particular was a special one because it was our first one as a married couple. I know it's cheesy, but I am big on all holidays and 1st anythings. Sorry got a little side track... So we celebrate on the Saturday evening rather than the actual day. Mike took me to an incredible restaurant called "The Bistro" which is Hubbell & Hudson's restaurant. Sooooo delicious!! I am in LOVE with Hubbell & Hudson they have the best everything!

On the actual day we just relaxed most of the day and Mike decided to make my favorite meal he makes for me...Homemade Chicken-Shrimp Alfredo. WOW! This was better than the meal from the night before! These pictures don't do justice of actually how yummy this great bite of goodness was!


I am so lucky to have such an incredible husband. I can't wait to spend all of our valentines, christmases, birthdays, new years, president days, easters, thankgivings, halloweens, st. patty's and all the other holidays and special days for ever!! We have a blast together as a couple. I wouldn't have it any other way!!


  1. What a wonderful 1st married Valentine's Day!

  2. Congrats on your first V day as a married couple. It looks like it was just fabulous!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.

The card that I got through Love them!

This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.

Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....

Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 

The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!

I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
