A Belated Birthday Post

My sweet little girl turned two years old last month. We had a super fun rainbow birthday party for her. I did a couple cute things I found on pinterest, but nothing crazy.

We had rainbow cupcakes (white cake with different colors of food coloring layered inside the cupcake – kind of a tie dye effect, this was super time consuming):
The rainbow fruit kabobs were time consuming as well, but a big hit:
I looked around for a rainbow birthday dress and eventually ended up ordering this one from thredup.com (used! In like new condition – I’ll post more about thredup another day, but joining through my link gets you a $10 credit (and one for me if you place an order)!!):
And here she is the next day trying out one of her birthday presents! It’s safe to say she liked it. Now we need to get her brother one with pedals for his next birthday (he has a balance bike for now though, and he can practice on this one until spring):
It’s hard to believe my little baby is such a big girl now! I go back and forth marveling about how she’s still so little, and already so big! She LOVES babies, I’ve been babysitting a 4 month old for a couple months now and she still has to give her a hug multiple times a day and says “I love you baby”. She tells me she loves me all the time, and that I’m a good boy. 🙂 She is really just the sweetest cuddliest little love bug, with a side of the usual “give me what I want” temper. Here’s to two!

A Belated Birthday Post

Thanks Y’all!

I am in the middle of planning The Boy’s third birthday party, it’s an “Old McKevin Had A Farm” party. 🙂 A friend of mine is starting a candy buffet catering business so she is setting up a cute farm themed candy buffet for us and I am working on the goodie bags for it… I’m making this a much more difficult task than it needs to be! All I am doing is running some brown paper lunch sacks through the printer. Simple enough but I need to decide on what they’ll say. I want it to be a little bit country and cheesy, but not lame. Here are some options I’ve come up with (they are very similar, that’s how indecisive I’m being), feedback is much appreciated!

1) Thanks Y’all!
2) For your haul, y’all!
3) Aww Shucks, Thanks for comin’!
4) Enjoy the haul, y’all!
5) Aww shucks, thank y’all!
6) other (ex: an animal outline with a three in it, or an animal sound on each bag)

My husband seems to think “aww shucks” is too corny (*giggle*) – what do you think?



OR… I have this crazy-eyed goat picture that I love, so I came up with this:



Thanks Y’all!
