Its my first FIVE post of the new year. It’s been our first week back after our little holiday vacation- and man it feels good to be home and back into our routine. We’ve all been in exceptionally good moods this week. So far 2014 totally rocks my socks.
Second birthday party prep is underway over here. And we’re SO excited for birthday party numero dos for the little babe. We’re taking a page from jenny and throwing a rockin’ favorite things party. I hope lex’s is half as cute as Ella’s was! First up was crayon making- because this sweet babe LOVES her crafts. We have lots more fun fav’s in store- but this handy craft was super fun for both of us to do- and will be a super fun favor!
Well ladies and gents its officially juan-uary. I’m so stoked for the return of the bachelor (HELLO juan pablo). I have a feeling this season is going to be epic. . . and enough tears will be shed to fill all the great lakes. Between the return of the bachelor AND the return of downton abby Ive been one excited little DVR monster.
This year I made the switch from my erin condren planner to the day designer by whitney english. It was a hard switch- but the draw of the gold combined with each day being broken into actual time slots, AND an area for a daily checklist was too much. After just a week of using it IM IN LOVE.
My mom came over for her weekly lex hangout/babysit all day so i can do fabulous things like work out and get my hair done- and she brought all of lex’s christmas toys from their house that we couldnt fit in our car. It was like christmas part 2. and it was fabulous. Lex’s easel is finally in the play-room- and she was super stoked to color, paint, and chalk in her leotard. I’m crazily obsessed with this picture. . . jazzercise painting anyone?
This weekend we’re transitioning lex to her big girl bed. It’s either going to go really well. . or really badly. My guess is that she’ll end up sleeping in her tee-pee. Things are going to get interesting around here!
