I had such big plans for Sawyer’s second birthday. There was a whole pinterest board dedicated to fun ideas and DIYs. I was going to make all the snacks and decorations myself. There was going to be tons of fun activities, all his friends and our friends were going to be there and it was going to be the perfect summer afternoon.
Then, reality set in. I started having some complications with my pregnancy and had to start modified bed rest. Meaning all of the snacks and DIYs would have to be put on the back burner.
We ended up ordering all the decor from Oriental Trading, only inviting family and very few close friends, we got snack trays from Wal Mart, and I made Funfetti cupcakes from a boxed mix. I was bummed I couldn’t give Sawyer the pinterest-worthy party I had envisioned, but you know what, it didn’t matter.
Happy Friday! What do you have planned this weekend? We’re hoping to relax and catch up on some much needed sleep. Sawyer kept me up until 4:00am this morning before I finally got to sleep, who knows why. But, I am feeling it today!
#Momlife, am I right?
The other night I had the opportunity to check out a new spa in Lone Tree, CO with the Colorado Blogger Babes and had an amazing time! I wanted to share some photos with everyone.
I recently connected with some other bloggers in my area, forming the Colorado Blogger Babes Network. This is really great for me and my business! I honestly had no idea there were other bloggers in my area. Blogging isn’t very big in Colorado. I’m a part of a lot of blogger facebook groups and I’ll see bloggers getting together all the time in areas where it’s really big like Houston, Atlanta, Provo, and Southern California. They have events like this and network all the time! I was so jealous!
Not only is it great to network with others to help grow your business, but it’s also great to have friends who are likeminded and understand what you do! My friends and family are all very supportive of my blog, but none of them really understand it. How can you when you’ve never experienced it? So it’s been great to connect with people and form friendships with those I have lots in common with. It’s also great for us to come together and support local businesses.
