I loved Addilyn's first birthday party. I loved making invitations, crafts, planning it and having a huge party to celebrate her (really our) first year. But it was a lot of work! So we knew we wanted to do something super simple and easy (and cheap), but still celebrate our baby girl turning two! We decided on having an ice cream party with just our immediate family and it was perfect. We had it at 3:30, so no need to worry about feeding any dinner. Maybe just ruining some dinners? Oops. But it was great and I'm so glad we did it just like that!
I used a lot of her polka dot decorations from her first birthday and hung polka dot garlands around our house. We bought tons of candy from the Dollar Store and Target and cut them up in little pieces and put them in cute little bowls I found at Hobby Lobby. The mini chalkboard signs came in packs of four at the dollar spot from Target. I found the ice cream garland online here for free!
Someone woke up from her nap pretty excited to see all this candy.

Last night I finished the last episode of Friday Night Lights. For the second time. And I was just as sad, if not more when it was over. That show may be the best show ever. I watch one episode before I go to bed almost every night and I don't know what to do with myself before bed now. I'm thinking maybe starting Parenthood over again. I think I've watched all the good Netflix shows, but I could be wrong, so please fill me in if I'm missing one. Important stuff here, I know.
In equally important business, I love this top. It fits my standards of long, baggy and comfy. If it wasn't so sheer I'd wear it as a dress, but leggings and jeans it is. Plus it's under $12 so win, win!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I can't believe it is already the end of July!

dress: c/o sheinside sandals: old navy cuff: nickel and suede
I'm pretty sure my closet does not need any more embroidered things in it, but I love them all. And will happily take more. I love the pattern on this dress and it is super comfy. It is a tad too short if I plan on doing any kind of bending over, but I think it'd be perfect for a beach cover up. And even better with leggings or even skinny jeans in the Fall. I am sure I will regret this but I am already ready for Fall weather. I can not wait to wear leggings and by Fall I mean not even close to Winter. I am no where near ready for that.

I'm not positive if soft pants is the correct name for these pants but I love them. I debated buying them because of the tapered bottoms and something just doesn't seem right about that. But thanks to a coupon they ended up costing me 80 cents so I figured I couldn't lose. My shorts legs often mean dragging, baggy pants so the tapered bottoms are perfect. Plus they have pockets and an elastic waist, so soft pants for the win!
