Monster Bash!!

Ryan’s 1st birthday is coming up… can you believe it?!?!! I know, I can’t either!! This year has flown by. Ok, I know it’s still 2.5 months away, but that’s going to disappear inaflash. Before I know it, he’s going to be shaving! And driving a car! And going away to college! Sob, sob.

While the event may be bittersweet… I’m pretty excited about the party. I started planning it awhile ago and we decided on a monster theme! Clearly because Ryan is a little monster. A CUTE monster 🙂

So, along with Katie

how “green” are you?

This is like the ultimate way to be green… having NO trash. I like to think we’re pretty green–we recycle, we compost, we barely have any trash. But we do have trash. Look at this way: in nature, there is no trash. What is waste from one, becomes food or shelter for another. Everything is used. Why can’t we do that? That’s where TerraCycle comes in! They take what cannot be recycled and they “upcycle” it to make products you can use.

Ryan has new crib bedding! (& $300+ giveaway!)

When I was pregnant, we picked out an awesome theme for Ryan’s room. I wanted animals, Steve wanted sports. We actually found ANIMALS PLAYING SPORTS. Blows your mind, I know. Sadly, we never got the whole bedding set because it was so expensive. We ended up buying other pieces that matched… the window valance, crib mobile, wall stickers and the lamp. I was always pretty disappointed though that we didn’t have a matching crib sheet set. I found really cute jungle animal sheets at Target, but we never did have a crib skirt!

memories with shutterfly

Shutterfly has always been my go-to place for ordering photo products. I don’t remember exactly when I discovered them, but it was YEARS ago. I have made photo calendars–great gifts for your girlfriends!, photo books for my hubby of honeymoon and wedding pictures, and I think they have so many awesome gift ideas…. puzzles, mouse pads, coffee mugs. Seriously, just about anything you want. And they’re all customizable with your pictures.

Ryan is going to be 7 months old tomorrow. SEVEN! Going on 5 years?! I
