Sewing lessons

So I have been known to spend money on clothing for Lucy :) I will admit it! So recently the opportunity came for me to take sewing lessons and I jumped at the chance! I go every Monday with Tiffany (my sister in law) to the cutest house in Senoia. Miss Claudia has a PINK house, does it get any better than that!? But it does get better, she is the sweetest lady and is sooo patient (if you know me this is much needed). Her studio is called Rose Wood Cottage she teaches all kinds of classes and since the new Southern Living idea house is right next door she has been super busy. (I love having the idea house 2 min from my house, I have been twice, super cute :)) We stay for four hours a week. So far I have made an apple dress and a pant and top outfit. I JUST LOVE IT!

Here is her house

Here is Lucy sporting her new outfit!

Happy Birthday Day!

I can't believe my sweet little girl is 1! In some ways it feels like centuries :) and in others it feel like a week ago we were bringing her home! She woke up like she normally does, she watched an episode of the Mickey Mouse Club House and tried to dress mommy in some hats.

We got dressed in our bathing suits and went to breakfast with my family. Breakfast is Lucy's favorite meal of the day she can eat eggs like it is nobodies business.

After our bellies were full Andy, I and Lucy, along with my brothers family headed out to whitewater water park for the day. Both girls had so much fun. It was a task to get them to leave Wiggles World for anything else. The floor is foam matting which is very nice and the adults took turns riding the big kid rides.

After the park we had a birthday dinner of taco's. I think it was more daddy wanted taco's but Lucy seemed to enjoy it too. Lucy helped me "cook".

And then it was time for bed, or maybe not!

Low key fathers day

After our busy birthday party Saturday, we took a short break from the craziness and napped most of the morning on Sunday. Around 5 we left for Andy's Aunt and Uncle's house to celebrate father's day and Andy's sweet cousin Hannah's birthday (I can't believe she is 17, that means I have known her since she was 7, I am getting old, She really is one of the best "kids" I know). Andy's cousin's are always so great with Lucy and it gives me a break :)

The Birthday Girl

In her swimsuit doing a little dance!

How Old Is Lucy?!

Lucy is 1!

Lucy actual birthday is not till Friday, but I thought it was getting a little to close to the 4th of July to have her party next weekend so we had the party on the 19th. It was a blast! Everyone knows I am a sucker for a good party! We hosted a carnival in our backyard. We used alot of clown referencing no actual clowns (they are scary) We had their shoes and hats mostly.I hired a professional photographer and her photos won't be in for another week so here are my armature pictures.
Her Cake with a clown hat on top.

Inside the game room. There was bowling, golf, can toss, ring toss, a sucker pull, duck pond, frog game, baseball game and two strikers. The actual booths were wardrobe boxes I cut up and painted white then stripped with red duct tape.

Prizes for the games. I started picking stuff up in January.

"Toddler town" We had alot of children under 3 so I set up a play area for them outside the game booths with carnival related little kids toys, they even had silly carnival mirrors and homemade bubbles!The cotton candy and snow cones were also set up near them.

Lucy loves to play with bubble wrap so I put that out for the kids to walk on.

I made a kissing booth where I cut out lip shapes from foam and people wrote messages to the birthday girl!

Food tents from the deck

Food seating area.

Kids tables were adjustable in height and had homemade "chairs". The chairs were 2 dollar buckets from Walmart, I covered the top in felt and added vinyl circles.

A face painter and balloon artist were set up on the front table.

21 and over striker. The big boys had to hit the bell before they could get beer!

Little people striker.

Food tables YUM!

Pool area

I had ALOT of fun putting it together and we had a great time!

Dare Devil

She can't even walk yet, but she sure can work her new early birthday present from Marmee and Papa. She can't get the car up the hill, but once the car is in place she can climb the stairs to get on, and push herself off. SHE LOVES IT!!! It was a nice break to play with it this afternoon, instead of cleaning or getting ready for the birthday party!
