teen party ♥

Adrianna celebrated her thirteenth birthday BIG...
my girl is a teenager, we had reason to celebrate!

It was a challenge planning this party because i wanted it to be PERFECT. {a more grown-up party!} Her favorite color is purple & mine is yellow so that's how she decided on the color-theme. Once we had the color-theme it all started coming together. i love that she got involved and added some Adrianna-style! She made most of the party decorations.

i  love ruffles so much, you have no idea! so i HAD to have a ruffle cake for the party! Luckily, I have a very talented friend who makes the BEST cakes. She made Adrianna's cake last year  Here 

Paper chains - the newest party trend & so easy to make. Adrianna made ALL these.

She even made the favor bags, don't they look simply cute?
This picture doesn't do justice... she mod podged yellow scrap paper on the clothes pins & u
sed chalkboard paint on the circles. We filled them with glow-n-dark bracelets, neon socks & candy

We made our own photo booth & it was a hit!
{I needed an excuse to buy chevron yellow material}
This is such a fun way to capture all your guest.

Adrianna has always had the best of friends in our neighborhood and at school. no drama – ever. just genuine, respectful, kind, loyal, good, kids.  I am thankful for her group of friends!


my beautiful niece

i am pretty sure, we had more fun than the girls!

beautiful birthday girl

after dinner... we went glow in the dark bowling,
disco ball and all.  It was prom night so we had the entire place to ourselves!

My little man, enjoyed bowling for the 1st time.
He LOVES hanging out with Adrianna's friends!

i have a teenager! and, i will admit, strangely, i don’t feel old at all. i feel very very proud.

Adrianna is thir-teen

{Yes, you read that correctly… I have a teenager!}

THIRTEEN YEARS. Seriously, where did the time go? I can't figure out how this happened so quickly. Wowza

One of my HAPPIEST memories is the day we brought her home from the hospital! Jeremy & I were both so excited & nervous. Neither had a clue what we were suppose to do with our new bundle of joy. Thank God for our mothers… we didn’t even know how to change a diaper. Oh, Good Times! We are the PROUDEST parents and couldn't be more in love with our beautiful baby girl - Our first miracle 

~ Love my Adrianna Paige

Aunt Nanner, Adrianna & Meme Trisha

I found this picture last night & it cracked me up... so i had to post. Jeremy, Adrianna and Michael looking cool!

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl

Kool Eggz

We used kool-aid to dye our Easter eggs - we can't have the same boring eggs, i HAVE to change it up from year to year. This just gave it a new fruity twist.

 Add one package to 2/3 cup of water


we added rubber bands for KOOL stripes.

 Andrew was so proud of this blue egg
