The Invitation---And, the final birthday post

So as with all good things, my birthday posts have come to an end. For today's final birthday post, I wanted to share with you our birthday party invitations.

The second I saw these adorable summery invites, I knew I'd found the invitation for Gillian Grace's first birthday. Not only was the invitation pink and green {GG's signature colors}, but the wording---sunshine, smiles, & fun---was simply perfect!


I purchased Gillybean's invitations from Shutterfly. I love this online company and cannot say enough positive things about their products and site. In the past 12 months, I've ordered stationery, uploaded photos to share, and made a photo book. Shutterfly makes it so simple to be creative and thoughtful with your digital images.

Shutterfly is currently running several promotions, including free shipping on orders over $30 (code SHIP30) and 20% off all cards

{Warning---Sudden Subject Change Ahead}

Unfortunately plans to begin the birthday-related giveaways have been slightly delayed, no thanks to my horrible luck with electronics. I'll spare you the details, but it involves a few sparks, a bit of smoke, and a singed, now worthless, computer power cord.

And speaking of giveaways, it's time to announce the lucky winner of the Jumping Jax Designs giveaway.

The winner of, what Becca of JJD refers to as the Caramel Macchiato, a total blog design worth $45 is...

When I come across a blog that I really like, I have to get to know that person from the beginning, so I go back to the beginning of their blog and go through every post. There was a post with both yours and your husband's baby photos and I swear that GG looks just like you. Honestly, I thought I was looking at her. I can see a little of her daddy in there, but she looks so much like you.
I'll have to check out Shutterfly, we need to do invites for our end of the summer party too.
Yikes! Electrical burn is always the worst smell too. My vacuum just blew up and it smelled to high heaven for a long time. Luckily I had literally just finished vacuuming the entire house and was on my way to unplug it. Now I have to go shop for a new vacuum. Not exactly excited about that shopping trip.
