Happy Birthday Sweetie pea!

Henry turned 2 today... we celebrated his birthday on Saturday with a cute donut theme. I bought the DYI donut birthday pack from Lauren Hoddox Design on Etsy this year. It came with all the files for me to print off and use (invitation, thank you notes, favor tags and much more).

We ordered a cake from the local bakery as well as all the donuts. Served juice, milk water and a coffee bar. I also made yogurt parfaits and had fruit.

The kids went home with a Curious George book, The Donut delivery. I decided to splurge on a single favor item instead of getting a bunch or small junky stuff that I always throw away. I hope the kids didn't mind!

I like to keep the party small- after all he really doesn't need a ton of anything - Christmas was just two months ago. Of course we invited family and then three family friends.

Happy Birthday, Henry William!

Work trip

Getting away is good for me! I don't travel as much anymore for work and I like it this way... flying is not something I enjoy doing. It's easier when I get in the habit but it's been 5 months since my last trip. My co-worker needed additional help and asked for volunteers - I took this opportunity to push myself outside of my comfort level.

With all the cold and snowy weather we have had in Ohio...sunny warm Scottsdale is beautiful. I thought it was just going to be another meeting inside a drab hotel with no views of the outside. This is my view from my office this week- can't beat it!
