Has it been a week already?

It seems like only yesterday, we were celebrating Gillian Grace's first birthday, and now here we are one entire week later!

I've looked beneath the couch cushions, in the laundry hamper, and under the fridge, but I just can't seem to find the missing time anywhere. POOF! Like a cupcake in a preschooler's lunch box, time has once again disappeared and is simply gone.

{For some of you, it may seem like years since I've had a regular non-birthday related post, but I promise there is an end, just not today...or tomorrow, but soon!}

With only a couple birthday posts left, I would be remiss if I didn't share a few photos of GG on her actual birthday! For Almost Wordless Wednesday tomorrow, I've saved one of the best {or at least most delicious} posts for last---the smash cake! Then to conclude Gil-lie {remember the month of all things Gillian Grace}, I have several fabulous birthday-related giveaways to announce. With so many sweet comments about all the birthday details, I just know y'all are going to flip over these giveaways! Thanks for sticking with us and enduring all the birthday hoopla. I promise these giveaways won't disappoint!

Gammie and Grandad join us for GG's birthday dinner.

{Saying Goodbye to Gammie and Grandad}

Gammie couldn't resist making GG giggle just a few more times before climbing in the car and waving goodbye.


Nobody likes goodbyes, especially when GG has to wave buh-bye to her two favorite people!

GG watched Grandad's truck until it was out of sight!
