Heath's birthday party

On Saturday, we had a birthday party with friends and family. We had a lot of fun and got to play outside in the water!

Here is Heath with one of his new toys...A water table!

Family Birthday Party

For Heath's 1st birthday, I decided to have a "family party" on his actual birthday, and also a "family & friends" party on the Saturday after his birthday. For the family birthday, we made BBQ grilled chicken, potato salad, baked beans, and chips. I also made a birthday cake and two cupcakes- one for Heath and one for his cousin! These are pictures from his family party.

Getting pushed in his new truck!

Heath received a ton of toys! Including a set of 100 balls...kind of like the ones we used to play in at McDonald's.

Here is Heath eating his cupcake

Heath surrounded by all of his new toys...with cake all over his face!

A sweet family shot- just me and my boys :)

and yes, those are balls flying through the air. The adults used them as ammo in our "ball war"
that lasted about an hour!! SO much fun :)

My tropical getaway!

Now that it is officially summertime....
I want to be in one of these places......

Unfortunately, that costs $$$$........

So, until we can really go somewhere sunny and nice.........

I redid this.......

My cluttered, boring laundry room...............

to look like this.........

and this..........

and the best part?
It cost under $10!
Wall paint- $5 "oops" can
Storage boxes- I already owned them... just used some spray paint I had on hand!
Storage Labels- Cut up a Lilly Pulitzer greeting card my sweet Aunt had sent me
My own personal "getaway"- PRICELESS! <>

Heath's 1st Birthday!!

Today is the day that my sweet little boy turns ONE YEAR OLD!!! Exacly one year ago, I went to the hospital at 6 am to be induced. Heath was born a few hours later, at 12:23 pm. I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by. We are having a little family get-together tonight with the grandparents and aunts and uncles. Then, on Saturday, we will have a little party with all of our friends! Ryan and I are so blessed to have such a fun, loving, and healthy TODDLER who we love more than anything in the world!!! Happy birthday Heath! We love you so much!

movin' in

Hey guys, I'm back! I have missed reading about all of y'all and am so glad that our computer is back in service!!!

We have had a very busy couple of weeks. Most notably, WE MOVED!!!(this weekend actually!!) We sold our house and moved into a new house! The new house is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house. It feels so much bigger. Probably because it is :) I have had no problems unpacking because it seems like there is a place for just about everything!

Since move-in day on Friday, we have finished unpacking the kitchen, our bedroom, and are working on the kids' rooms.

We only had a few "disasters", like our brand new refrigerator not cooling, a small leak from the washer, and of course our dishwasher that won't work. Thankfully, everything has been resolved. (except for the dishwasher, but they repair man comes tomorrow!!)

(Right now, Ryan is giving our dog Roxy a tour of the house and just told me that they are literally running from one end to another! )

I will keep all yall updated on every project that is sure to come! (and will post some pictures once I get all the camera cords unpacked!)
