Happy Friday!!

It's been a great week at my house....
minus one day of feeling under the weather, a few rainy days and spring allergies making an appearance.  We went on a day trip to Mississippi, started finalizing some upcoming travel plans and had dinner with friends.  But the best parts of my week were:

1. We wrapped up graduation celebrations for my husband this week.
PhD from University of Utah :)

2. My daughter is turning ONE and I have been dying to buy her her FIRST pair of Saltwater sandals!!  We tried on a few different colors but I came home with the patent fuschia ones for her!!  I own a red pair, but I'm thinking I might need to get some matching fuschia ones - mommy & me sandals :)

3. A good friend is having her first baby this summer 
so I finally got around to writing a post on MUST HAVE items 
when you are registering for your first baby!!
 Registering for your first baby

4. Here's a sneak peak at Olive's 1st birthday party invitations!!
Her parties are just about a week away 
and I've been busy DIYing, glittering and making lists.

5. Olive has started doing so many fun little baby tricks...
blowing kisses, GROWLING
and the kissy face!!
This age is SO MUCH FUN :)

Finish This Statements for the week...
Two lessons I learned from my mom...
the importance of being a good cook and always write thank you notes!
To burn calories, I...
go for long walks and push a stroller... I should do this more often :)
My best hair day was...
the time I went on a cruise to Mexico and it looked great every day.
I'm grateful for...
a happy, healthy family.
Thanks for stopping by!!  Hope you have a great weekend!!
