Manic Mondays

Hi friends! Another Monday has come and is almost gone. This was a rather fun Monday. Noah and I had a play date with a girlfriend and her 2 boys. One is 4 and another is 18 months. They both have the same smiles and are absolutely precious! Noah still has a hard time with playing nice at times. Due to his inability to say what he wants or needs, he tends to use his hands which causes him to upset not only others but his Mama as well. It's a work in progress that I am praying he will grow out of soon. He is such a sweet boy and I hate that this behavior makes it look different.

Our weekend was low key but overall fun. One of my best friends, Paula was celebrating her 50th birthday. I promise when you post the pictures of the party you won't believe that she is 50! She is one of my most beautiful friends and I am so thankful for her Godly friendship.

Mellisa and I went over to her house on Friday evening to get a start on decorating and food prepping. When you get the three of us together it usually ends with a lot of laughter and picking at one another. It's what makes our friendship one of a kind.

This was an adult/teenager party so we took Noah to my uncles so he could spend the night. He packed his back pack with just about every toy he could find, put it on and told me he was ready to go.

Now it was a totally different story once we actually got there. I think in his little mind he thought we were ALL going to Aunt Katie's. Once Daddy said bye to him it was instant meltdown. Thankfully, Aunt Katie came to the rescue by grabbing him and walking him right inside. After about 30 minutes, he calmed down.

The party, decorations and food turned out so beautifully. One of the decorations was something I made specifically for Paula. The sentiment was perfect for her!

I have had this plate and stand for at least 6-8 years. My sister in law was a Southern Living consultant and I earned it having a party for her. It is one of my favorite decorations during holidays. You use decorative ribbon for each holiday and dry erase markers to decorate it. This time I decided to pull out my black vinyl and use that to decorate. I found this sentiment in the Silhouette Studio store and knew it was perfect! Next I punched out some flowers and glued those on. I love the pop of color against the black and white! She loved it which made me happy to have made it for her!

Here are a few more pictures to share our fun night with you!

These were a HUGE hit! One minute they were there and the next the were not! Some were carrot cake, vanilla cake, and red velvet cake. I didn't have a problem biting in to any of those! 

Her sweet husband had this cake made for her to look like a birthday gift. It was a yummy red velvet on the inside and it was so yummy!

I snapped this very cute picture of mother and daughter. I think it is so adorable!

Here is the birthday girl with her beautiful smile. 

Caleb had to get a picture with Mrs. Paula. He loves her too!

Paula and her very sweet husband. He is a very loving and supportive husband who loves his wife very much!

This is by far my most favorite picture. I love each and every one of these ladies! They all hold a special place in my heart. When I first moved to Georgia, I had a very hard time letting go of moving away from all my family and friends. I joined a ladies small group through our local church and this is where I found comfort and love. We have all grown very close over the last couple of years. God led me to them and I am thankful for that every day! 

Hope you had a great weekend with your family or friends. Come back tomorrow for Tag 'Em Tuesday. 

Happy Stampin!
