A little 5 on Friday!

Hey ladies!!
It's been a minute, huh?!

I miss the blogging world, so I am going to try (no promises, just yet!) to get better!
I thought I would make it easy today and do a little 5 on Friday!

 
1. I am really missing the beach! We went to the beach last week, E's first trip to the ocean, and it was amazing! Recap coming soon!
Oh to be back here!
2. In case you were wondering, we have not found a house yet :(
The market is crazy here in Franklin. We look and we look and nothing. And the good ones are gone in less than a day! We are about to start month 3 with my parents....never did we think it would be this long....say a little prayer for us that our new house is going to find us soon! :) 

3. I have a busy Saturday coming up, including a birthday brunch with these pretty ladies for Adri's birthday! Very much looking forward to it!!

4. Has anyone else watched Hollywood Game Night on NBC? It is awesome. I am loving all the celebs and adding silly games, what more could you want? 
You should watch, just saying!

5. I don't know about all the other parts of the country, but Nashville is having an AMAZING July! I mean, a high of 83 and 85 at the end of July?! Come on! 
 
Where was this weather last year when I  was pregnant and then was cooped up with a newborn?!
I mean I wore a cardigan to work yesterday! 
It is GLORIOUS!
 
Happy Weekend to you fabulous bloggers out there, hope it is stupendous!! :)

Sweetest little Thank You cards!

I wanted to share the preciousness that is Elise's thank you card! 
I think everyone has received theirs, so now I can share.

From the beginning I had the idea to use one of her smash cake pics for her thank you cards. I absolutely adore the personalized monogram and had originally designed those....but then thought this would be fun for her FIRST birthday! :)

I started looking for cute ones and of course, Tiny Prints had the winner!! 
I had been e-mailing with the lovely people over at Tiny Prints for a while about doing a post on their fabulousness and this just seemed too perfect! They were kind enough to send me these and I must admit, they turned out perfect!
  
I absolutely adore Tiny Prints, I always have! They by far, have the cutest and most stylish cards in my opinion - Christmas Cards, birth announcements, baptism, birthdays, and of course their thank you cards and many more. 


I have used them many times before and will continue to use them a ton, as I am a bit obsessed with paper goods...and pics of E....so this is perfect! HA!

But for real check 'em out if you haven't already - they are fab and they always have some kind of promotion going on which is a fabulous bonus too!!! :)

Elise is One!

Okay, be prepared for an overload of pictures....

So as I mentioned we had our friend, Hannah - who is pretty much family at this point, come and take 12 month pics along with the whole party!
And as always, she out did herself!! 

I will start with some of our family pics, I am kind of obsessed with all the brightness and the colors!!
 
I love that she got so many of the faces we see everyday! She captured our little monkey oh so well!

Now....on to the party!!




Needless to say it was a perfect party! 
Amazing guest of honor, amazing family, and amazing friends!
It was the most special, blessed day!
We are very lucky parents! :)
