Sophia's First Birthday

Sunday, December 30,  2012

Sophia's first birthday is four months away, FOUR! Seriously time is FLYING!! I can't even begin to tell you how amazing these 8 months have been with my girl. If you didn't know, I have a twelve year old so this was seriously like being a first parent all over again. Although it's a bittersweet feeling since ALL of my family is in California, it makes me sad that they won't be here with me to share such a milestone. 
Lately I've been on pinterest pinning like there's no tomorrow. We've decided to go with a Vintage Spring theme. Here's a little inspiration...


Sophia's First Christmas

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Daddy bought her a lot of toys and she wasn't entertained one bit. Instead she made her way to the entertainment center and played with "her" toys, which are the dvds. I love this girl. 
p.s Isn't that reindeer tushee just the cutest?

Thrifty Thursday Week 13

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Like everyone else I've been super busy! But I did manage to go to the thrift store once last week and I scored big time! I found some awesome vintage circus fisher price toys that are going to look perfect in Sophia's nursery. They're not in great condition and I still need to get them cleaned up, but they're for decoration ONLY so I'm ok with that. Any of you find any goodies? 

This link party was created to bring together all of you thrifty bloggers! So link up with your blog post showing your recent thrifted finds!

Through the power social media, in this case instagram I found out about winter wonderland for Sandy Hook. Make paper snowflakes and send them by Jan 12, 2013 to Connecticut PTSA 60 Connolly Pkwy building 12 Suite 103 Hamden CT 06514. The students will be welcomed back in a new building with a snowflake covered winter wonderland. 


Friday favorites

 I'm a big photography/art fanatic and when I saw these I instantly fell in love. I'm thinking of going back soon an snagging some of these pretties! Except for #5. I own that!
This has also inspired me to host another swap!? Stay tuned, you'll probably LOVE the idea as much as I do. 

my curious 8 month old

Thursday, December 20,2012

The other day I tried taking pictures of my 8 month old. I made some props and visioned how beautiful this little photo shoot would be. I was wrong! This little girl is into everything and it was nearly impossible to get her to sit still. Or better yet to keep her tongue in her mouth. She kept it out almost the entire time. It was hilarious. I really miss my little baby but seeing her blossom into this wonderful little girl that she's becoming is something I wouldn't trade for anything. 

yes, that's a shoe she's holding. but let's pretend it's something pretty and sparkly instead.
 looks like a tooth. but it's a puff. I had to bribe her to hold still haha
