Yep, we do the half birthday celebration thing. Why not? In true Leo fashion, I don’t feel like you can celebrate your birthday too much. We do half cupcakes for the girls, and they get as excited as they do on their actual birthdays. Ellie’s half birthday is today which means it’s been 6 months since we celebrated her turning FIVE at her Disco Dive.Read more
I created this easy table scape for Thanksgiving this year. I knew I wanted purple, that was the only direction I had. Luckily the wholesale flower mart had some pretty purple, magenta flowers. Paired with our gold and white decor, it made for a pretty centerpiece!Read more
Layla’s birthday is around the corner so Chris keeps giving me the side-eye. He’s wondering if I’m gonna get crazy with the coordinating and DIY like we did for both Ellie’s first two birthdays. He thinks I’m nuts, like who would really WANT to spend so much time and energy (and money) on a kid’s birthday party? And one they won’t even remember. I get it. It’s not everyone’s idea of fun. But it is mine.
San Diego isn’t known for its changing seasons but we were still surprised to wake up to 85 degree weather on Thanksgiving Day. A quick poll of our guests and we unanimously decided to eat our feast outside. Luckily our thanksgiving table decor translated well to our backyard picnic table.
Since we’re heading out of town for Layla’s actual birthday and the weekend immediately following, we decided to do an early celebration in San Diego and invite some close friends. Because the party fell almost two weeks before Layla’s actual birthday, I’ve had more time to wrap my head around the fact that she’s ACTUALLY turning one. I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to believe!
