On to more important things :)
My Sweet Luke is 1 month old.
I cannot believe how fast 1 month went by... picture overload next!

All About Luke
Height: 21 1/2 inches
Weight: 10lbs 2oz
Luke is a great eater... he loves to eat, burp and fall asleep in our arms.
He slept half of a night in his crib, the rest are spent in a bassinet right beside my bed.
A few of our favorite things are sleep sacks, Dr. Brown's bottle nipples and
the noise of a hair dryer. I randomly learned the hair dryer trick while I was struggling to
shower and actually get dressed one day. The moment that hair dryer went on, Luke was silent.
In honor of Luke's 1 month birthday, he slept for 7 hours straight last night. Talk about one rejuvenated mama!
I am loving being at home with my sweet boy.... this has been the best experience!

Spring has Sprung!

Well, Spring has sprung over here at 6904! Taylor and I spent tie this weekend in the yard... The weather has been great, so we took advantage of it. Luke got to go out on his first big adventure to Home Depot and The Farmer's Market. He had a great time and was Taylor was happy to know that Luke's first outing was not to Hobby Lobby or the nail salon.

Here are some pictures of the yard work...
Now hopefully everything will live :)

A Pinterest kind of Birthday Gift

I love love love birthdays and I love love love giving unique, special and one of a kind gifts. Thanks to my pinterest habit and all of the creative people I follow, this LOVE keeps growing. I find myself trying to give extra gifts to people just because, that's not really a bad thing!

My brother and future Sister in law's birthdays are a day apart.... they
live in another town so I had to send them something for their special days. On pinterest I found this wonderful idea to fill a large box with balloons and place money in the balloons. Rather than giving them money, I filled each balloon with a lottery ticket (bad habit-- but my family loves them)!

We bought the biggest box we could at Wal-Mart... taped their cards to the inside...
Filled 10 balloons with lotto tickets, this was a 2 person job for sure!

The box held 10 balloons perfectly, this was fun!

This was the perfect gift for a 29 and 30 year old!
They loved it and I loved giving it!

Follow my "Gift" board on pinterest for lots of fun ideas!!!
