I probably started thinking about my baby girls first birthday party when she turned about 6 months old! Now that doesn’t mean I started planning it than (contrary to what my husband thinks) but I started throwing ideas around and I kept coming back to the idea of Bohemian but with lots of wood and natural elements in it as well. So I came up with a Bohemian Woodland theme and than I had to start planning. Colours, menu, flowers, gifts…. the list was endless what needed to be done so once the list was made it was just a matter getting to work scratching things off! The colour palette I chose was blush pink, coral, gold and white! (All eyes are probably rolling thinking of course she went with those colours but there is more to it than just the fact I like the colours) I needed to get a hold of a few key elements – a tent, dreamcatcher, flowers and lots of yummy food! I started my research and ended up working with the most amazing shops to put together what I think was the cutest first birthday party! My dad always teases me that I put too much work and effort into the parties I through but the truth is I just love doing it I just don’t always have the budget to go with my dreams and ideas! The best part of a lot of the items I used as decor at her party is that I can now incorporate them into her bedroom decor. A special thank you to all our friends and family as special those of you who drove from far and wide to be with us to celebrate our special girl! And a BIG thank you to all the shops that I had the pleasure of working with – without you all this party wouldn’t have been what it was so THANK YOU!

PS her floral crown was a labour of her mommy’s and auntie’s love. We may have stayed up way too late the night before trying to figure out how to make one even with Pinterest’s help we struggled and we weren’t even drinking wine but I am happy with how it turned out not perfect but definitely made with love.

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog! www.katiespinks.com
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
