Photo Friday: A Mickey Mouse 2nd Birthday

Following yesterday's outfit post, I'm sharing photos from Zoey's Mickey Mouse-themed 2nd Birthday party (February 3rd).  I had a blast making most of the decorations & planning a party.  My grandmother unexpectedly passed away & we had to travel to Iowa instead of hosting family up here.  We were fairly sure Zoey wouldn't have a party considering the circumstances, but I packed the decorations along just run case (huge perk of driving, you can pack as much as you want).

We went for breakfast the morning of her birthday & the party sort of fell together at the breakfast table.  It was so last minute, I messaged invites to family members at 11am for a party to start at 3pm....and you know what? All of them made it! I'm so thankful & grateful to everyone who made time to come help her celebrate, it really meant so much to all of us! Enjoy the photos :)

Found the perfect Mickey sweatshirt on F21, perfect for a cozy house party :)
DIY'ed these red photo frames from a previous baby shower & ordered 24 pairs of ears as favors (via Ebay)
DIY'ed the highchair banner & ordered a same-height-as-Zoey mickey Balloon (she LOVED it, via Ebay).
A close up of the highchair banner.  I used both fabric & ribbon because I liked the mix better.
Make-shift backdrop out of table covers (via Michael's) & ordered this banner from eBay.
We decided on hot dogs/sausages, cheesy potatoes, a few salads & cake...easy menu options for a last minute event!
DIY'ed napkin rings our of leftover ribbon (ribbon via Michael's)
DIY'ed these sparkly Mickey centerpieces with foam balls, spray adhesive, & loads of black glitter :)
Our birthday girl, chowing down on her healthy bday dinner haha
Last minute party requires a last-minute Dairy Queen cake, which the bday girl LOVED!
Oh my goodness, she's so spoiled & loved :)

What Does One Wear?

What does one wear to a two-year-old birthday party you ask? One wears what the birthday girl insists, especially if said two-year-old is yours & she's requested MICKEY everything :). Tomorrow I'll be sharing all the photos from her impromptu birthday party in Iowa & I must say, it was such a good time with people we don't see often enough or spend near enough time with...

Showering Baby Liam

Let me start off by saying how much I LOVE baby showers! Aren't they the best? Everyone is so thrilled, everything is tiny & adorable, & there's just so much anticipation in the air for that sweet babe to arrive.  As a newer mom myself, I can't refrain from feeling nostalgic at showers.  That mama has no idea just how much you can love someone & it's going to be amazing to see...

Photo Friday: Valentine's Edition

The remainder of our Valentine's Day.  We had such a great time celebrating with the girls! I love looking back at pictures from last year & seeing how far we've come as a family.  I had only been back to work for just over a month, Zoey was still bald & cranky from waking up for daycare, & Sadie was still on the inside.  So much change, in what feels like a blink of an eye.

Any way, enough sentimental mom-feelings...back to this post.  I rounded up some outtakes of this week's outfit posts & mixed in a few randoms.  I hope you've enjoyed celebrating Valentine's Day together, I'm all for any excuse to celebrate love :)

Get ready to see a TON more of this blouse, I'm obsessed (blouse via Vici)
Zoey shook sprinkles all over the kitchen, leaving me just enough for these homemade brownies...
