Yesterday this adorable little girl turned NINE months old!!! 

Say WHAT?!?!?!
Didn't that seem fast to anyone else?

It was also her mother's birthday yesterday...
We decided to do it up big as I know sometimes as a new wife and mom it can feel like your whole life is about everyone else. We did an all out birthday week starting last Saturday. For a full seven days she had presents and surprises everyday!
Not big gifts, a makeup palette she wanted, a couple of those Alex & Ani bracelets everyone seems so nuts about, a new travel cup for summer... That kind of thing... Her big gift was the full day with her husband in Portland (Our Portland Carrie!) with her hubs, sans baby! (Plus a little spending money of course!)

But yesterday was her actual birthday and she was convinced that the surprises were over...
Then she arrived at our house for dinner and found this...

Yes, an Olaf cake! How cute is he? 
"Winter's a good time to stay in and cuddle, but put me in summer and I'll be a.... Happy Snowman!"
(I think Frozen is seriously my new favorite Disney movie!)
We also had "taco night" which is in everyone's (but mine) top five favorite dinners...
Everyone sits around and passes the topping dishes around and it's messy and we get loud and laugh a lot and I enjoy that part, it's the clean up that seems to take the joy out of it for me, but last night I didn't mind.

We sat around the table long into the evening, talking, laughing, telling and retelling stories...
A good night was had by all! (Oh and there may have been a little visit for Katy by Vera Bradly in one of the brand new spring colors... Just to have a final surprise!)

Thanks for listening,


  1. What a wonderful week of making Katy feel special! And LOVE the adorable pic of your grand :D


  2. What an amazing birthday! I love those kind of dinners! And I love me some Vera too!
    I haven't seen Frozen yet! I know, scandalous.
    One of these years all y'all should come out West to Our Portland! :)

  3. awww, what an absolutely amazing birthday week!!! I know as an adult in general, birthdays tend to just kind of go by unnoticed by me any more. I'd love this kind of a week. :) No doubt much appreciated.

    And that grandbaby of yours: ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I haven't seen Frozen yet, but it's definitely on my list. Sounds like you spoiled your daughter, as we all should be spoiled, on her birthday. I am a big fan of doing it up right on your day! Happy Birthday to your girl!
