Wedding bells….first anniversary

Sunday the 7th of February was our first anniversary and to celebrate we took a trip up to Santa Barbara.  We stayed at this little B & B called the Cheshire Cat.  It was super cute and within walking distance to lots of fun spots.   Thanks husband for such a wonderful weekend….it was the perfect combination of love + scrumptious food + relaxation (a very much needed getaway from orange county)!!

In preparation for Valentine’s day…… Last thursday my friend’s mom ~Tutu~ had a valentine making party at her house. She really went all out to make it a lovely evening. She had an amazing spread of not just snacks, but everything you could want to use for making fun valentine cards.  Tutu and her friend Yolanda are little creative geniuses and they can make ANYTHING.  They had place cards which were actually candy bags and we each got a package with the basic pieces to create our very own decorative LOVE banner. There were dozens of pretty paper embellishments and lovely ribbons for us to use and there was even a delicious raspberry cake! YUM!

This was my candy bag…..

…here’s my banner and a little basket I made…..

cutest little button nose

So I’d never really celebrated Halloween…..

1. Because it’s an american holiday.
2. My mother didn’t want us to.
…but somehow I absolutely love the idea of playing dress up…..especially when it comes to baby outfits. This is my friend Amanda’s little Brooke. She’ll be 2 months old next week and she’s sporting a halloween tutu made by grandma and a onesie that said “I want my mummy!”.  Isn’t she CUTE!?!?!?! This was also the first time I saw her with her eyes actually open.

Um, do they make these tights in adult sizes??? I want them!!
she’s such a little poser!!

 

Smiling and sticking her tongue out!!!
