Happy 3rd Birthday Ava!!

I'm sure every year I will say this, but I CAN'T believe Ava is 3! Thankfully, I'm the same age as I was when I had her. I assume now that she is no longer in the terrible twos I can say goodbye to the tantrums and mood swings that rival any Hollywood diva.

We celebrated Ava's birthday with a trip to a local waterpark, which she loved. Then that night we had her 2 best friends over for pizza and cake. It was a simple and great day.

Craft Workshop

One day I had the insane idea of hosting a craft workshop playdate at my house with my mom's group. In this crazy fit of creativity, the moms of girls where making tutus and the moms of boys where making superhero capes.

Well, you know where this is going. Today this nutty idea was implemented and can be best described and organized chaos. I think I burned 600 calories juggling and assisting everyone and their projects but it was incredibly fun and I loved every second of it.

I have to say, the members of my mom's group are VERY creativity. The tutus and capes turned out great! And it was nothing short of a miricle that no child go a hold of the various pairs of scissors and 450 pins being passed around today. Everyone left happy and with all their fingers and I was EXHAUSTED!

Week in Review

Bad blogger- I know!!

This week kind of got away from me. Highlights, my sister's college roommate Robyn had a baby girl on Monday, my dad's birthday, Welcome Raelle!! Saturday, I attended a lovely baby shower for my friend Lisa thrown by my pal Erin. Erin is very creative and did a fabulous job!! I need to recruit her for my next shindig!

Lowlight- We had a storm on Tuesday which, thanks to a tree, caused damage to some power lines and our house along with 44 others lost power!! You might not think that is too bad, but it was probably 95 degrees with 100% humidity that day. The house was unbarable until we left. These things never seem to happen on days Bill has off from work. The power went out around 3:30 pm and did not come back until 9pm. The girls are I just roamed the streets until it came back. Ok maybe not the streets but we wandered to various air conditioned locations.

Here are some various items I made this week:

Pink Florida Gator's Bib
Pink Florida Gator's Boppy Cover
Cake Plate tutu

Cupcake Tutu

Last week I was asked to make some adorable tutus, but to my surprise they where for cupcakes! Dressing a cupcake in a tutu makes me smile, what a cute idea!! Needless to say when Ava saw my "test" cupcake dressed in a tutu for my photo shoot she was BEGGING for it!!

If you are having a party or shower think about ordering some cupcake tutus, they making cupcakes extra fun!

Look to the Left

Look to the left, see where it says, Cute Hair Bows, Look No Further. Yes,well good. I purchased some adorable hair bows from my new Etsy friend CowlickCutie. Ava loves them and KEEPS them in her hair!! So I endorse CowlickCutie's hair bows and encourage you to buy buy buy. When you do so, you will be supporting a hard working, bow making, stay a home mom. Need I say more....

Class Canceled

Sorry I have been slacking on the blog here and its WAY too late to blog right now, but I wanted to post something. The smocking class was canceled :( the teacher is out of town, but when did I find this out??? When I arrived all excited to smock and to spend 2 hours doing something unterupted by children. I was pretty pissed when they told me there was no classa since the store HAD my phone number and its a good 20 minutes from my house. UGH. The guy working there felt bad so he gave me a bunch of free stuff, yes I can be bought!

The teacher is still out of town, but this time they called me the day before. So maybe next week there will be class?? I'm beginning to wonder if there really is a class at this store.
