Professional pics from Munchkin's 1st birthday party!

Ummm, yah. I'm totally super late delivering these. Life has been so crazy lately, if it's not one thing, it's another & work has got me running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, so I never have time to update during the day. But, one of my 2012 resolutions is to really get back to blogging. We have a bunch of house projects planned for next year, so I should hopefully have a good amount of content to blog about & hopefully some stuff you'll find helpful or that you'll ohhh & ahhh over!

Anywho, I just realized that I never shared some of the professional pics from the munch's birthday party...there were A LOT, I mean like over 200 to choose from, so I'm just going to share a few with y'all so as not to bore you with 5 million pics of my beautiful baby big girl {yes, she's officially a big girl now...more on that later}. I didn't edit them since they are property of the photographer & not mine...

Source/vendors list: photography - a friend I went to college with, Devin Burnette Photography; paper (banner, cupcake toppers, favor tags, stickers) - Ciao Bambino on Etsy; Amaya's bow & bloomers/diaper cover - To Be Stitched on Etsy; Amaya's custom personalized onesie & tutu - Made Cute Just 4 U on Etsy; Amaya's bow leggings - Amy's Buttons & Bows on Etsy; cake - a family friend did it for us :); cupcakes - Cupcakes Actually; decorative balloons & polka dot fruit cups - Shop Sweet LuLu; paper lanterns (in living room) - Luna Bazaar & Party City {pumpkin lanterns}; everything else was either DIY or I'm not thinking of it right now, but if there's something you see or saw in the original post about the big par-tay that I didn't mention in either post, please contact me at worldofdennifer{at}gmail{dot}com & I'll get the info for you stat! Also, don't forget to check out the Pinterest pin board I made for the party - it has lots of inspiration & recipe links. A tutorial for the ribbon topiary is coming up early next year...ya know, since next year is in a mere couple of days. ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with my annual recap of my favorite moments over the year! 'Till next time!

What I wanna buy Wednesday - my Christmas wish list edition

Hiii! I can't believe how quickly time is flying until Christmas - two weeks from Sunday...eek! I still need to buy the hubb's gifts! But today I'm posting a special edition of WIWBW - my holiday gift wish list! So without further adieu, here goes...

1. A Cricut Expression:

This is the crafty woman inside my body's dream gift! Can you imagine all the DIY wall art, banners, cards, etc., etc. I can make with this baby?! It's on my list & has been something I've wanted for a while now, so we'll see if Santa thinks I was a good girl this year!

2. Victoria's Secret PINK lounge pants:

I bought a pair of these pants from VS last time they were on sale & they are one of my favorite pairs of lounge pants! They are seriously some of the comfiest pants I've ever worn & I looove them! If you don't have a pair, buy them & try 'em out...they are a bit pricey for lounge pants, but you won't regret it!

3. A nice GMU degree frame:

This is super embarrassing mainly because I finished undergrad in 2005 & grad school in 2007 & yep, neither degree has ever been framed! Horrible, I know. I have been holding out for really nice frames, but every time I have the money, I buy something else, lol. Soooo, I still need two or one double frame.

4. A bookshelf for my office/craft space:

I need this last piece of furniture to finish up my office/craft space makeover that I started a few months ago. I still have a little decorating of the area to do, but this would be the final piece of major furniture.

5. Create your own New Balance shoes:

There's a kiosk at our local mall to create your own version of New Balances & when I saw it, I thought it was SUPER cool! Such a great way to create a custom pair of shoes that likely no one else will have! I may even give the hubbs a gift certificate so that he can create his own pair for Christmas - something I definitely know he'll enjoy!

That's all I got tonight, I'm exhausted already & it's only Wednesday! 'Till next time!
