Flashback Friday

Nearly 30 years separate these two pictures, and though lots of things have changed, at least one thing remains the same---kids love cake!

{Gillian Grace's first birthday, July 2010}

Okay, so you got me! Though technically not a party post, I just can't seem to move away from the birthday theme, at least not quite yet anyway. Gillian Grace's birthday month may be coming to a close in just a few days, but that only means that mine is about to kick off! I will celebrate my birthday on August 22nd. And, while I don't have any plans for an extravagant party, I'm excited to begin the month with several fabulous giveaways. No worries, even with plans to bring you great giveaways each month, I promise there'll continue to be as much Webbisodes' drama as there ever was. After all, this is my mommalog! {And in case you haven't had your morning caffeine jolt, that's mommy+blog.} Just consider the giveaways a little bonus gift, along with a giant thank you for reading and commenting!

I had so many comments about the dress I wore for GG's party, I wanted to post the fashion 411---The dress is a Lilly Pulitzer. I was fortunate to find it during a 40% off sale. Talk about kismet! With only one dress left, in my size nonetheless, this dress was meant for me! I found my Lilly at a department store here in town, but Splash of Pink is a great site for all things Lilly P. They are even having a gigantic clearance sale as we speak, so spend away and feel good about it! Happy shopping, friends!

And that's that, another week over and done! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see y'all next week!

Like twins! I love your dress but the prices are way out of my league. I have enjoyed seeing all of the photos this past week. You have an amazing home as well. You should definitely do more posts that feature each room.

Oh my goodness, y'all are identical, except she does have your husband's red hair. :)

And you know I LOVE your Lilly!

I had no idea you used to be a teacher. I did too. That's probably why I still love making lists too. I taught first graders, what about you?

You are just such a cutie and a fashionista!

I love how she dug into that cake!

Jennifer said...

Well...we know where GG gets her cute looks from! You were an adorable baby and she looks just like you. Your poor hubby...does he get mad when people say she look like you..LOL! Great pic of you modeling...I already told you I loved the dress. Looking forward to seeing some of these great giveaways :)

Susan said...

Oh now see. I'll tell you what. Look at the little sweet pea, she looks just like her mama. Same hair color too.
Now I hope I don't offend here, but I love chubby babies. Can't get enough of them. Good thing too because mine were all over 10 pounds when they were born. My first was 11 lbs. I just felt more comfortable handling my chubby babies then I do some of these teeny tiny ones.

Henley on the Horn said...

You all are identical! I love pics like these!

Avery's Mommy said...

Oh that is precious! I think you and GG need matching aprons. Can you imagine how adorable. I'm doing a giveaway on my blog for a $50 giftcard, for a great cause. Would be honored if you could blog about it or buy an apron!

Hannah said...
