Happy BEEEE Birthday Lyndsay!

We celebrated with Lyndsay this past weekend for her 2nd birthday (which is actually today!). Lyndsay has hit a "BEE" phase. So in honor of her favorite bug we spent the afternoon amoung some friendly BEEEEES! (That's how Lyndsay says it...in all caps!) It was a fabulous party and would you expect anything less from her super talented and crafty mom? Enjoy the pics :)

Cute invitations
Tuckered out from too much partying
She blew out the candles before we were done singing :)

Too cute
Even the clothespins are adorable
The classiest fried chicken I've ever seen

What can you buy for $18?

Ohhhhh lots of goodies! How 'bout 4 pretty amethyst bottles, C.O. Bigelow Apothecary jar, bingo wheel and wooden scorecard, and a sugar and creamer set that looks like a trophy!

That's why I LOVE yard and antique sales. We hit up the Redwood Children's Home sale and the 127 World's Longest Yard Sale last weekend. As promised, here are some pictures of my awesome treasures!

So sorry....

I'm so sorry for my lack of blogging. I will take full responsibility for my absence. I will say that I've been way more diligent in updated my Facebook.

So, what's new with everyone? Hope the summer treated everyone well. Since my last post, Miss Kate was 3 weeks old. I can't believe it, now she's 3 months old. She is growing like a weed, and growing out of all of her clothes too soon. This past week was my first week back to work. Monday was definately the hardest day. By lunch time that had been the longest I had ever been away from my baby. But, I'm so proud of myself for not being a complete mess! It also makes coming home to my family just that much better. And having Fridays off doesn't hurt either.

We are celebrating Lyndsay's 2nd birthday this weekend. I was looking back to last year at pictures from her birthday party and just paused to think how much has changed in a year. Lyndsay is turning into such an independant, strong, lovely little lady. It has been so much fun to watch her change so much from when she was as small as Kate is. I absolutely look foward to the many fun times that Lyndsay and Kate will share. I know they will be best buds.

It's also that time again. The 127 Yard Sale is this weekend. I'll post some of my treasures :) Kate attended her first yard sale last weekend at Redwood in Ft. Mitchell. She helped me pick out a vintage bingo wheel and wooden scorecard for $4.

That's all for now. I am going to make the effort to update my blog more frequently! Enjoy the pictures of Kate :)
