Dancercise

Last week a girl from work sent out an email to all the ladies that she would be teaching a Dancercise class on Tuesdays during lunch. I figured why not give it a try.

So today, I brought my clothes and had an extremely cardio driven workout all while never stepping foot out of the office.

Not to mention, I really enjoyed it. My dance moves could use a little work, but it's all in good fun :)

I need to start shedding the LB's stat. Spring is fast approaching and no one likes to see a hippo on the beach!

Although I'm dreading Spring/Summer for bathing suit season, I'm looking forward to it at the same time.

Basically only for reasons such as this cute ensemble.

Landyn's Party

Landyn's Birthday party was a success. We had a HUGE turnout & everyone that came had a blast!


My big boy- all grown up!
 
Mommy & Auntie with the birthday boy!

Some of the big kids :)

Poor Elmo took a beating. There were some hard hitters!

All the little kids opened the presents, since Landyn has the attention span of a 2-year old ;)

The big kids ultimately ended up playing 'Pin the Nose on Elmo'



If you can't tell, it was a Sesame Street filled day. 


Here are some pictures of all our hard work coming to life :)






Landyn's Sweet Street

Elmo's Punch

Poms Poms with the characters faces on them. It's a wonder what a little construction paper can do :)


 Big Bird's Bubble Parlor & Oscar the Grouch's Tattoo Parlor, along with all the goodie bags

 My balloon version of Sesame Street

 I forgot to take this picture until people had already walked all over them. Oops!

I'm off to read before bed. Have a great night!

Red Stamp

Allow me to introduce you ladies to the cutest new app that I discovered last night.

You can email, post, or snail mail personalized cards, notes, invitations, announcements all from a few clicks on your iPhone.

Did I mention that it is free?
If you don't have an iPhone, like me, you can also get it on your iPad. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find it in the Android market :( Hopefully, Android will soon follow suit.

Check out a few examples that you can quickly create on your own in seconds!

Are these just the cutest little things you have ever seen, or what?

You can add your own pictures by taking a live picture, choose an existing photo on your phone or it will connect you to your Facebook albums. How convenient is that?

This is what it looks like once you get in the app.
There are so many different occasions to choose from and that's not all.. As you can see from the picture above, for each occasion, there are many different styles and once you click on the style, you can personalize it with different colors, pictures and messaging. If you need a little help expressing your feelings or getting the correct lingo, it even gives you options of clever sayings for each occasion. 

Once you're done creating your masterpiece, you can tweet it, Facebook it, message it, print it, etc.. 


I'm just so in love with this little creation. I sent one to my boyfriend and a few of my friends last night. I was having a blast & was dying to share!

I hope you love it just as much as I do :)

It's OK Thursday!



It's Ok that my taste is much more expensive than my wallet can currently handle.

I want everything I see, particularly this outfit, this dress (in multiple colors) & these accessories.





Now for my It's Ok Thursday, Landyn edition :)

It's OK that I still have 2 hours left until Chuck E Cheese with my little man. 

It's OK that I'm more than likely going to have a slice of pizza, or 5, for dinner. I mean, what else is there to eat at Chuck E Cheese? 

It's OK that we have 2 days until his big party & we are not completely set up. 

It's OK that 2 years have flown by quicker than I thought they could. 

One more day left until the weekend. I hope you ladies are having a fabulous week!

Birthday Boy

Happy Birthday, Landyn!

 
Honestly, I can't believe it's been 2 years since my little angel came into this world. At the time, I didn't know how drastically my life was going to change. From the moment he was born, I was attached. Nothing else in the world mattered to me. 

While my sister was pregnant, I was getting excited just to have a baby around. I mean, who doesn't love a baby? I had NO idea that we were going to be blessed with a child that would make me fall more in love than I ever thought possible. He truly is a gorgeous child, inside and out, with the sweetest personality to boot. Out of everything there is to do in the world, my favorite is to just hang out with him. He cracks me up & we have so much fun together. He's without a doubt my best friend and I can't imagine what my life would be without him. After 2 amazing years, I can only imagine what a great man he will once be.

Here are some pictures of us over the past 2 years

















I'm so proud to have you as my nephew. 

Only an Aunt can give hugs like a mother, can keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend.

I Love You, Landyn James!
