What a day, what a day.

Is how my husband always responds when I ask how his day went...what a day, what a day!  I am having one of those days today.  It isn't a busy or stressful day or anything but I am so tired!

I cant seem to stop yawing for some reason.  Maybe I am not used to getting so much sleep again? I slept uninterrupted from 10 until 715.  I usually cant fall asleep until closer to 11 and then wake up a couple times to either use the restroom or give Paige her paci.  It felt great to wake up refreshed this morning.  But now I am just tired....I think I am going to blame boredom at work in an empty building!  I have a lot to do today but just cant seem to get motivated!

Anyways, what I really want to write blog about today is birthday parties!  My sister's best friends twin girls are about to turn one and we just got their party invitations in the mail the other day.  It only got me thinking about my girl turning one.  I thought that would be forever away and it seems like she was just born last month!  I know she is only 7 months old, but looking back and seeing how fast that has flown by, she will be 1 before you know it.

Is it bad that I already check on etsy, pinterest, and other sites for first bday ideas.  I don't really want a theme but I have colors I want to use.  I have no idea where I want to have the party.  My in laws have a lake house, do I want it there?  I love my parents yard, do I want to have it there? Or have it at my house..which I really don't like for a party?  

Decisions, Decisions!!  All I know is that I want to have pictures made of Miss P for her birthday.  The girl who did her newborn pictures already said that she will take some of Paige when she is 11 months old so that we can have the pictures at her birthday party.

Anyone have any good ideas to share for a First Birthday?  I am so excited and since I am on a major budget I want to find affordable things and buy some here and there!  

Maybe I am the crazy Mama already thinking about her first birthday party, which will not be until September but oh well...I am sure I am not the only one!

  1. I made one of those tulle princess wreaths for my daughter's birthday last year and I got so many compliments on it. I did pink and white tulle, so pretty! I would just do anything girly and pink... I am currently planning my son's party, it will be Angry Birds Space! Planning parties is so fun, I always start planning a few months ahead! I love all the details!

  2. You could have it at my house! :)
