My 1st Cat Walk

I was very excited when I was asked to participate for the American Cancer Society's Starlight Gala's "Our Cure" Fashion Show. This fashion show was pretty cool because more than 1/2 of the models were cancer survivors. It is amazing to hear their stories on how they overcome such a battle. All of the survivors were around my age or younger. Nuts to know that you can get cancer in your twenties. I was inspired by their strength and positive aspect of life when they come so close to near death. It is just amazing!

This was officially my first fashion show. Of course I was really nervous as I always am with everything I do that is new. I was especially terrified in getting in the swimsuits that I was too wear for the show. I was pastie pastie white! So I went to Darque Tan and got a mystic tan a couple days before. That helped a little when you see the pictures below I am still pale white you should have seen before the tan. MAN I need to get some sun...FAST! I felt sick to my stomach before the show because I was soooo nervous about the swimwear. Once it got down to it the show was a lot of fun. Mike even surprised me by showing up and watching me. I was so excited to see him after the show. What a supportive husband!

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…
