This is where Danny and I fell in love...Union Station in Nashville, TN. It's such a beautiful hotel  and I really wish we could just live there!! We stay there every time we visit, and it's only fitting that this time we have our little Olive with us. The haze on the photo is from the very humid air fogging the camera...gotta love the southern humidity! 

I love this girl!

These were all taken this past week...I just think my baby girl is so special..

always curious and wide eyed...
loving her new bouncy...
early morning laugh attack with dad...

Not only is it absolutely adorable with the ruffles and off shoulder cut, but I got the shirt at Target for $14.99! I paired it with a simple black skirt and a chunky jewel bracelet I made yesterday.

Friend's First Birthday Party

My good friend's son had his first birthday party at my house this weekend. Here are some of the photos from the event.  He's a sweet sweet boy!

the birthday boy himself...his mom got him this adorable tie shirt on etsy. 

his beautiful mom.....

I made so many cupcakes for the event that I decided to use them as the party favors too! I think they turned out pretty cute wrapped in goody bags and sealed with a photo of the birthday boy printed on address labels.

Date Dress Up

So Danny and I finally got a sitter to watch Olive and have resumed having dates sans baby.  This means I get to dress up and not have to worry about poop/drool/spit-up!! Here is what I wore this week.  The dress is from Anthropology, earrings by me (naturally), and aren't these sandals adorable?! I feel so summery and breezy in this dress...
