Loves me not ... Pintrest! Sometimes finding images that I've "liked" or "pinned" isn't as easy as it should be. If you pin from a blog I wish you would pin to the original post, not just the blog itself. It can be very difficult to find the original creator this way!

Our first coverage is of adorable baby Dylan who turned 1! This fun filled circus themed party was inspired by one of Dylan’s favorite books “If I Ran the Circus,” by Dr. Seuss. An amazing DIY party pulled together by Mina, Jen (Nunn Better Design), and many more friends held at South Coast Botanic Garden. The remarkable desserts were provided by My Sweet & Saucy Shop, and, as always, they outdid themselves. All the signage, place-cards, and printouts were designs from a birthday party pack, and Jen generously customized all the additional signage. David, the balloon twister, stole the show and had guests, young and old alike, following him around. As guests entered they voted on the Doljabi game, a Korean tradition for a baby's 1st year, said to predict their future. Guests choose between Money – wealth, Book – education, Yarn – long life, and Rice – never go hungry. At the close of the party all four items were placed in front of Dylan and the one he chose would predict his future! After much deliberation on the part of the birthday boy he selected Money!
It was a blast photographing the amazing party and Mina did a great job putting it all together. Thanks for having us a part of your special day.

Love me not...mornings. I hate waking up in the morning, no matter how early or late. I just don't want to get out of my warm comfy bed.

Left: I am in love with this lace dress from Elizabeth Fillmore's 2012 collection! When I saw this on Wedding Chicks a few days ago I literally gasped out loud. Top Center: Bow ties! Who doesn't love bow ties! This amazing variety is from Shauna and Stephen of Something's Hiding in Here exclusively for Forage. Top Right: Once again My Sweet and Saucy's cake amazes me! Those exquisite doilies and the sugar flower on top are pure perfection. Bottom Center: How hot are those shoes! Not only do I love the shoes but I also love the photograph found on Piper Page. Bottom Left: Masks are so much fun! And they make great props for wedding or engagement shoots! This one (found on We Heart It) is absolutely beautiful.
