A First Birthday party isn’t complete without a photo-shoot! We had a “One”derful time with Danielle with DT-Photography. Lucky for us we live in a pretty talented neighborhood! Danielle lives right in our “hood” and when I approached her with an Alice themed shoot she was more than excited to participate. With her and my combined enthusiasm the shoot really came to life. We could not have been happier with the way all of the photos turned out. Danielle’s patience and talent is really unmatched! Thank you so very much for making our photo-shoot a special One!

I’ve had a couple of questions about where I bought my chalkboard that I use. Well I didn’t buy it. It was actually a mirror that wasn’t being used anymore and was given to me by the previous owner. I took it home, cleaned it up and made myself a chalkboard!
I have been looking for a mirror like this for about a year now. I wanted to make T a chalkboard of her own before she was born but I wasn’t able to find one that I liked. When I saw these two I just had to have both! To transform these mirrors into chalkboards is a very simple process.
So as I was stalking Pinterest I came across an interesting way to clean your dishwasher. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. This post was suggesting that I dump a package of $0.20 lemonade kool-aid into my dishwasher and run it as I normally would. The end result was supposed to be a squeaky clean dishwasher. Yea…right.
