Oh Valentines Day...

I have mixed feelings this V-day....
Happy, sad, silly, mad... let's leave it at that =) 

 I adore this day o' love partly for the decorating possibilities!  This has to be one of the funnest holidays to make and buy stuff for.  I love it! I got so much inspiration from Pinterest this year. 
In addition to my vintage valentine display, I whipped up these babies....

 I have to be honest.  I totally made them last night.  I had all the supplies for weeks and never got around to it.  I was DETERMINED to finish them, even if it was just for one day.  At first I hated them and I was going to quit.  I kept going and tweaking them a bit and now I love them.  I think the color combo is perfect too.  I wanted them to match the convo hearts in the jars. 

I found this darling valentine idea for my kiddo's classmates HERE.  Aren't they sweet little "love bug" cards!?  They were so quick and easy.  We even made his teacher a special valentine.  He said she hates spiders so we glued one in a jar and poked holes on the top to make it look real. 
 Hope your Valentines day was super sweet! XOXO

26 Random bits about me on my 26th birthday.

I am 26 today!  I thought I would share 26 randoms about me just like last year.

1.  I don't drink milk. BLEH!  So, I will probably end up with osteoporosis when I get older.
2.  I make wishes on shooting stars.
3.  I sucked my thumb well into grade school.  After years of orthodontic work and a lotta $$ I have a pretty straight smile =)
4.  I ate 4 M&M and chocolate chip cookies for breakfast today. 
5.  I don't own a fancy smart phone, i pad or laptop. I wish I had any one of those!
6.  I haven't shaved anything in over a month.  I am beginning to resemble a bear.
7.  I am a sucker for vintage.  If it looks old, I want it.
8.  I hate getting in and out of the shower.  It is the worst. I freeze my fanny off every time.
9.  I think it sounds kind of dreamy to live on a farm.
10.  I want more babies someday down the road. A LONG way down that road ha ha.

11.  I have been on a seafoam green color kick for years. LOVE.
12.  I always have gum in my mouth but I don't really chew it.  It just kind of sits there.
13.  I love big, cheesy, cheapy cocktail rings!

14.  When I was 16 I stole my sister license and went with my older friends to get my belly button pierced.. during school!  Ooooo such a rebel!
15.  I sing in the bathroom mirror while getting ready and in my car.
16.  My bedtime these days is at midnight.
17.  I have a new tattoo.... here is a sneak peak =)

18.  I am a shy girl. Thank god for the Internet and emailing!
19.  One of my eyes wanders of to the side. It is so annoying, I have to weed out all the bad pics I post on here so no one can tell. Ha.
20.  I organize both the boys' closet and my closet by color.

21.  All my mornings must begin with coffee or else I can't function.
22.  I've never had a ticket before.  I debated putting this fact in because now I know I will get one!
23.  I use to sculpt OOAK fairies and sell them on Ebay.

24.  Reality shows are a guilty pleasure of mine. 
25.  I am a very match-y match girl... sometimes I will match my undies to my shirt.
26.  When i was little I use to draw, read, watch and write anything having to do with Sailor Moon.  I was obsessed.

Hope you had fun reading a few bits about me. 
I am totally wearing this outfit all day today! It rocks!  And thank you to my mama for bringing me into this world, taking my photos today and slaving away in the kitchen for me.  I LOVE you XOXO!!

Baby Aiden

 My friends are FINALLY starting to have babies!  Lucky me, that mean I get to play photographer.  I think I am getting better with every shoot.  I am learning so much about photography and photoshop.  I really wish I would have had my new lens for these.  They aren't as crisp and clear as they can be. Still, they are adorable and I hope my friend likes them.
I saved a "hoots" hat for him to wear in the above photos!  Those babies go FAST on my fan page sales.  They are so fun to make.  He made the sweetest model.

Baby Aiden just turned 6 months old. He was so little... look at his scrawny lil' arms. I love it!
 Remember that blanket in the background?  I think it is his favorite =)

 Eeek look at that drool... Ahhhh so cute!

 Love a good bum shot.
Hope you had a great week. I am amazed it is Friday already!
