DIY: Maxi Skirt

I’ve found this amazing blog Elle Apparel a while back. She has some great tutorials which I've wanted to try just have never found the time. Today I sat down and tried out her Maxi skirt tutorial. Her directions are easy to follow, and the skirt was super easy to make. I didn’t have any jersey fabric on hand, so I just used some coral colored cotton I had on hand. It worked. I will be buying some jersey fabric soon to make some more maxi skirts. I am also going to try out a few more of her tutorials soon. I’ll post pics when I do. 
Here are a couple pictures of the skirt I made. 

Macelyn's First Birthday

Well I finally sat down and got pictures from Macelyn’s first birthday edited. Life has just been too busy! Hopefully now that summer is here, things will slow down a little. Today is the first Saturday in a long time we’ve not had anything planned. Mace is down for her nap and so I thought I would get her birthday pictures done and get a blog post up. 

The Birthday Party: I had so much fun getting stuff ready for Macelyn’s first birthday party. Making the bunting, little flags and favor jars was so much fun. I just love parties. We had a wonderful turn out of family and friends and Macelyn got some beautiful new dresses. Some of which she will be 2 before she can wear. :) The sun was shining, there was a nice breeze and great fellowship with all of your friends and family. Here are a few shots from Mace’s big day!

Saavedra Kids: Galveston

We spent Sunday morning, April 29 down in Galveston with the Saavedra kiddos, Avalon and Abrahm. They had never been to the beach, and both of them had the best time. They chased the waves and ran from them, played in the sand and even got a little wet. We then went to The Strand for a stroll and ended it at La King's Confectionary for some sherbet. It was a great day and we got some great pictures for Mother's day! Here are a few shots from our day in Galveston.
