Party Planning, Almost Zips, Amazon Fresh

Good Morning!

I love Mondays. New beginnings.

Anna’s Party Planning

Anna turns one on September 12th and I am so excited to plan her party! I have never been one to entertain often but having kids has really awakened a desire to host gatherings in our home. We haven’t really done a lot of this yet because our dog Cody is HUGE (125 lbs) and we haven’t had a fence until this past weekend! He is super friendly and would never hurt a soul but he is so excited to see visitors and still pees when he sees them. Still, at 5 years old….

So now we have a fence to put Cody in and we are also remodeling our home! I’m getting so excited for how it’s going to look! We are brightening up the place but still keeping a cozy feel. It’s still far from finished but here’s what’s going down at the moment. Jason switched our brass light fixtures to bronze and is in the middle of putting wainscoting all around the house!


Since it will be Anna’s first birthday party and she still loves the boxes the presents come in more than the actual gifts, I’m keeping things pretty simple. I am doing a butterfly theme and here are some of the snacks I am planning to make. Gotta love Pinterest.



On The Weight Loss Front


You may or my not remember my post a few months back about my bridesmaids dress not fitting. The wedding is in October and so I was in a mad dash to lose a few pounds (and by a few I mean several) in order to zip the dress! Well, through a plant based vegan diet and regular workouts, it almost zips all the way up. Praise the Lord. A little more consistency and I should be able to zip the thing soon. That being said, I still foresee Spanks shopping in my near future. Haha! At this point I have pretty much ditched the scale completely and just try to zip the dress everyday. This has been a great motivator. Nothing says “just do it” like a looming wedding that you are actually in and the dress not fitting.

So cheers to this finally stretch!

Amazon Fresh


I have absolutely fallen in love with Amazon Fresh. I now use it for the majority of my grocery shopping. It just makes grocery shopping so easy in this season with littles. I find it to be more expensive than an Aldi shopping trip but less expensive than a Publix shopping trip. So maybe like a Kroger trip? It’s amazing. I usually order around 7pm at night and opt for one of the morning deliveries. I have had several deliveries at this point and have yet to have a problem! The whole order is always right on time and perfectly packaged. It’s the best thing ever in my opinion. Thanking God for Amazon Fresh!
