First Valentine's Day

Yesterday was my first Valentine's Day with Aubree. I didn't go all out and buy her a ton of stuff because I knew she wouldn't remember. All I bought her was a stuffed animal. She made valentines for her aunties and grandma though. I found the idea for them while browsing Pinterest(of course lol). They turned out so much better then I expected.
All I did was Modge Podge a piece of scrapbook paper to a piece of canvas then paint her feet prints onto another piece. Add some buttons and a quote and it's so adorable. :)
We had such a good day and I can wait for the next holiday! :)

Pictures Transferred to Wood Was A Success!

I'm obsessed with Pinterest. I go on it all the time. I look at all these really delicious recipes that I know I will never make and all these adorable crafts. The other day I decided to feel crafty and try one. :) I was afraid it was just going to be another one of those Pinterest fails. But it wasn't and I am so happy because it has to be one of the cutest things I've ever made!

It's super easy to transfer a picture to wood. First you need to print the picture off your computer onto normal printer paper. Find a piece of wood that you like. Get Modge Podge lol. Apply Modge Podge to the piece of wood and place the photo upside down onto it. Make sure you press firm and get all the bubbles out. Let it dry over night and put it under the faucet and rub the paper off gently with your fingers. Modge Podge it after it dries to preseve the picture onto the wood. And VOILA! It's an adorable picture on wood! I think this would be adorable for wedding decor, if you put pictures of the couple on them at every table or something.

I choose to use on of the newborn photos of Aubree because the picture's colors are so vibrant and pretty and they turned out amazing!

Month 1 of My Diet

Ok, so I have been on my diet for exactly a month now. And I am very pleased to say that I have lost 10lbs. It might sound like much but I am using the Lose It app for my Iphone and according to it I will reach my goal by my birthday if I lose just 2lbs. a week. And I've lost more then was expected for the first month. 
Me and Aubree went to the grocery store today and everything I put into the cart was healthy. With the exception of teddy grahams and such for her. I have had temptations sitting around the house. Right now there are mini cupcakes sitting in the fridge that I bought for Aubree. I keep thinking ehhhh it won't hurt just to eat one. But I keep resisting the urge. 
I let myself have one bad day a week. And only for one meal. I normally go out to cookout or get chicken tenders from my work. So its really not that bad I still have all that protein in the chicken, its the sides I get with it that are bad like the macaroni and cheese and the fries lol. 
I'm really proud of myself for sticking on this diet so far. Normally I don't make it this far. But I am determined to keep this up because I don't want Aubree to have the fat mom that can't run around and play with her.

Lost Glasses!

A few months ago after leaving Planet Fitness with one of my friends, I paused outside the car to put my sweatshirt on. I took my glasses off and set them on top of the car. I forgot them! When I went back I searched the whole parking lot and traced my way back to everywhere I went after to see if I could find them. There was nothing. I was so upset because those were the first pair of glasses I've ever loved on me. I kept asking for the next couple of weeks if they had any glasses when I would go into the gym. Surely someone had found them and had been a good citizen and returned my glasses. There was nothing. I gave up hope. 
Today I ordered new glasses and only had to pay $15 for them! I'm so excited. I don't have insurance so it is really hard for me to just walk into the eye dr. and get new ones. This website has really cool glasses and I love the wayfarers that I will be getting sometime next week. :) 
So go, look, and save :) if you use the discount code freefirstpair all you pay is the shipping and handling :)

Planning for the 1st

In less then 2 months my precious baby girl will be turning 1. I'm probably going to ball my eyes out that day. I mean it feels like just last week I was sitting in the hospital with contractions. I can't believe how fast this past year has gone by. I'm trying to plan this party and it is so extremely hard for me. 1. I'm not that crafty; 2. I've never planned one before and; 3 the only party I've ever planned included a million jello shots and a beer pong table. 
I've decided to change her theme after almost a year of being glued to the idea of a mermaid theme. It's going to be a princess theme now. When we went shopping with Aubree's aunt Erin today at Target, we saw these invitations and thank you cards with the cutest little unicorn on them. I have no clue where to start. I don't know how many people will actually show up because these days no one RSVPs. I gotta make goodie bags. Which are actually gonna be the easiest part for me because that is my favorite part of any party lol. I even made goodie bags for my sister's bachelorette party. 
This will probably be the hardest thing I'll have to do. After this parties will be a breeze because they get older and they can do more.
I already know one year we will be doing her birthday party at Lazy 5 Ranch. haha.
