Birthday Budget Challenge!!!

Early Birthday planning as usual... this one is for my most recent child's FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!!! I am so excited to have another child to plan parties for.. I have been drumming my head about the theme for some time.... and bam it hit me ELMO!! The only character to make her burst out giggling just from a balloon.

So with the exciting events from this summer.. wedding, parties...ect and the upcoming vacations to Arizona in November and Walt Disney World in January, I need to set a budget and find some alternate methods of creating a stylish party.  

The Budget: $100.00!!!!! Wow this might be tough!

Of course, turning to my trusty Pinterest, I was able to search for some budget friendly was of incorporating some decoration into the plans. I shall take these into consideration.....

Meet.....Ryleigh Claire

I know this is waaaayyy late...

She was born on November 15th and weighed 5 pounds 8 ounces, 19 inches long! She was 7 weeks premature... pretty big preemie!

I'm such a bad mom.... The only pictures I have of my baby are on my phone. What kind of a mother am I? Luckily, my friend is having a photo shoot for her product line next week and my babies are going to be models!!!

Here are some pictures until then!
She was in the NICU for 3 weeks...

Such a proud big sis!
Play time!
