Salvation Army *thrifting*



Sorry Its been a while since I blogged. I’ve been so busy lately! Anyways here is my little note on thrifting. Spontaneous fun with nothing in particular to buy and I stumble upon this cute pink car. I saw it shining like a little light in the corner. I peaked at Addy and she looked even more excited then I was. We both looked down at it and I said, “This is it. This is what we’re buying today.” All it needed was a tune up (a good cleaning) and I was Sold!! The price was fair too. $10. We wheeled the little thing up to the front and asked the cashier to hold it for us while we finished shopping. Like they say one mans trash is another mans treasure! I am so looking forward to many fun walks & creating memories with my daughter. Shopping at the Salvation Army is great because the proceeds go to their charity. Here are some of the things they support.

Adeline’s 1st Birthday Shoot


This is a picture from Adelines first birthday photoshoot. My friend from work took the photos and I was truly surprised at how amazing they turned out! I had no idea how talented my friend was. He gave us a really good deal too soo win/win for us:) I am so thankful that he took the time to shoot for us. It was such a fun day.

I prepared for her photo shoot about 4 months in advanced. LOL. literally….. I wanted to do a few different scenes. We ended up doing a cupcake smash (publix), bubbles (publix), balloons (publix), & I had a rocking chair prop (home), and a little wicker basket (home) that we used for a table.


The whole point of us getting her photos done was to have them as keepsakes, yes. But I wanted them on her 1st Birthday Invitations. (which my friend did as well.) & They looked fabulous! We are so blessed to have stumbled upon someone so talented! I also wanted the photos hanging on twine in mini paper clips at the party. Which I ended up doing.. But it rained for two hours during her outside birthday party, I had to take them down.

I will share more about her actually Birthday Party on a different post.

Thanks for reading:)
