Max had his first book fair at school this week. You know they were laughing at me for taking pictures, but it made this mom's heart happy. Max thought it was so fun to pick a book and sit and read with Daddy. He went home with a choo choo book, but I'm not going to lie. I went home with a couple cute books too. I just can't help myself! 


Party Sources

Okay...I am moving on from Max's birthday party. I promise. But before I do, I have to give credit where credit is due. And some of the three of you that read this blog may wonder where I got some of the decor from. So, here you go...

Max's adorable shirt is from my sweet friend Jenn at Miss Lulu's
She is on maternity leave right now, but she makes adorable things.

I got the invitations and a lot of the party decor from Amanda's Parties to Go.
I bought the digital files from her and had them printed on glossy cardstock at the UPS store.
Last year, I created all the toppers and decor myself, but I loved her stuff!

I got this fun vinyl banner at Personalization Mall. It's totally going up every year until he's 16 and hides it from me. I got the idea from Shannon at Bless our Nest.

That's about it. The rest was from Target, Party City, and my laundry room.
Most of the ideas were from Pinterest and the good ol' Internets.

Oh Two-dles Mickey Mouse Party (Part 2)

I had a lot of fun searching stores, the Internet (thank you Pinterest), and thinking of ideas for Max's Mickey Mouse party. Luckily my mom was in town the week before, or I would have never gotten it all done! Mickey is an extremely popular theme, so it was easy to come up with ideas and plan. Eventually I just had to cut myself off! Here are a few (billion) pictures from the day...
