Freshly Picked-- GIVEAWAY!

Please ask permission to use this image.

Me and my lil one had a fun little photo shoot yesterday... We were given a pair of Freshly Picked Moccs to try out and do a review. I was so excited! When they arrived in the mail, you would have thought I won the lottery or something :)   I was totally stalking their Instagram account looking at all the cute kiddos wearing their moccs...saying to myself... "one day.." Well, that one day has come!

If you want to read my review and take part in a giveaway to win a pair of these cuties click on over to The Lil Mamas website! Best of luck!

And yes, I snagged a 2nd pair during their black Friday sale :)  I can't wait to see them!

I can't believe we are already in December... I have been a lazy blogger. 
Something I must improve upon!! 

Hoping you all having a wonderful Holiday!!

Drew's 18 Month Update!

*Blowing kisses all the time! Even making that Mmmmmuawh sound!

*It is amazing you really understand what I am saying to you. You also have mastered selective hearing:)

*Started doing 1 minute time outs in a small chair. I'm not sure you understand that it's suppose to be a punishment....cause most the time you sit there with a big grin on your mouth... or seem completely okay.

*Finally starting to eat more raw are really into apples, bananas, plums and almond butter! Cucumbers are also a big hit! Oh, and hummus!

*Daddy and I took you to Chocolate World for a Halloween themed evening. It was soo fun!

*Only saying Mum mum, Dada..and Hi! You will wave and say Hi to everyone! It would be nice to hear a few more words lil one.

*We started music class once a week. You love watching the other kids run around making noises...then you do the same! Playing instruments! You also like to look in the mirror and shake it.... like all.the.time! (as he is doing in the left photo below)  :)

*Wearing size 12-18 size pants & shirts from the Gap! You are tiny!

*Size 5 diapers, still using Honest and really LOVE them.

*Started gymnastics too! I love watching you try new things!

*Sleeping good at night. Every now and then you will wake up....but it's easy to lay you right back down.

*I finally have you taking naps in your crib.. (totally all me...letting you sleep on the couch)

*You are hitting the 10% for height!!! ahh  but 55% for weight.  You are one solid little guy.

Happy Halloween!

This year was definitely different from last years! He is walking...saying Hi to everyone and has a mind of his own! :) These are our fun pumpkins! I really wanted to make a letter A pumpkin last year..and didn't' get to this year I was determined! I think its super cute!

We spent some time at the park with friends. I love his Halloween shirt!

Then we had pictures taken with the neighbors!
Everyone looked soo cute!

We didn't take him out trick or treating but we did have him hand out candy and he did such a great job! 

Before you new it... it was way past bed time and he was exhausted! Our neighborhood has definitely grown with tons of kids making this year much busier..and more fun!!

                     I even made his chaps :) Super proud of myself! Thanks to Pinterest!

Happy Halloween blogger friends!!!

Andrew's Birthday-2

 When everyone started to sing happy birthday, Andrew had the biggest smile on his face. As if he was thinking... "They are singing to me!" It was precious... something I don't ever want to forget.  I was afraid he would cry! Nope!

 I changed his shirt to a nice green number :) The birthday hat only lasted a few seconds :) 

This was a first in my Grandmother wasn't quite sure what was going on! Everyone loved the idea of Andrew digging in a cake!

I love the highchair banner that I made....

The end result...

It was a busy, exhausting, fun, and exciting day! Hoping for his 2nd birthday, we can have it at our house :) My little guy will be 18 months on Saturday! Time is flying !

Andrew's Birthday Party-1

Okay, this is really over due. Kinda sad I am just now doing this post! I didn't get all the pics I wanted either! Boo! So, next time I will plan for more time and more help. Then I can take the photos I want... :)

I created the party favors myself. They were so simple, easy and delicious :) Skittles filled the clear bags and they were just so cute! They said, "Thanks for Crawling Over to Andrew's 1st Birthday!" When I was told they would supply the white table cloths..I didn't expect to see the floral pattern. Yes, probably only something I noticed...but ewe!

Each table had three different colored balloons (red,green & yellow) with a caterpillar and favors. No picture of this...darn!
I was soo proud of my caterpillar balloon! I made the eyes and nose :)

We ordered some cupcakes and a cute little smash cake! They were adorable!

I whipped up some cute cupcake toppers and of course one for his cake! 
I found the matching tablecloth online Here.

I also had some pictures of Andrew put throughout the table.

I even had water bottle labels made :) I loved them!

This was taken on the way home after the party! They were soo cute!

I really wanted to make sure I had a few kid activities so I found The Very Hungry Caterpillar coloring sheets and printed them off. They were a hit! Everyone was coloring..which was great!

There were a nice handful of kids at this birthday. That was definitely a first for me!! I think I did good with keeping the party moving..and keeping all entertained! We brought a few of Andrews push toys..which were a hit! 

It was the night before when I whipped up a cute little TVHC shirt for my birthday boy! He looked soo cute and everyone loved it!



We had a copy of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and had everyone sign it like a guest book! He can always look back and see who was at his party.  You can also see some of the bubbles I gave the kids at the end of the party. I used the same water bottle labels to add some cuteness!

So, that is that! The room looked so fun with all the balloons..I wish I would have a picture of the room! I mean, I completely over did it with balloons and I LOVED it!!! In fact, I had to give a lot of them away on our way out because I had no way of getting them home! :)

The next post will be his birthday party cake smash pictures!!
