What's Hap-"Pinning"

Happy Wednesday ya'll....are you in the areas that are supposed to get hit with mega snow this weekend?? We are and yikes! I'm supposed to go to NC this weekend to stay with a friend but I'm pretty sure I'm not leaving my driveway if what they're calling for is really coming. I'm talking snow, rain, sleet, eek! Also I'm worried because our new (huge) outdoor woodstove isn't working and producing heat as it should. The house is sitting around 60-63 and takes forever to catch up and with the amount of wood we're going through, the EPA is going to hunt us down! Hubs has spent a pretty $ on parts etc. so we're praying for some good results with this big ole' investment.  Hopefully we figure something out asap before this snow storm!

Ok so onto the 'pinning' part. (However, when you link up it doesn't necessarily have to be something that's found on Pinterest. It can be anything!) I know Miss A just hit 9 months but I'd be completely lying if I said I haven't been thinking about her 1st birthday (like a lot) I went back and forth about whether or not to have a small or big bash and ultimately I've decided on medium. I mean, its the big first bday ya'll! April 12th will be here before you know it and I'll need to have invites out a few weeks before. Here are some of the things I've been pinning all over my baby/party boards. For the record, this is so much fun to plan even though I know she won't remember a thing. Bring on the pink and green and champagne for the Mamas!

  1. Fingers crossed for the stove. I hear wood stoves are the best when they are working! Exciting about the snow, people around here are crazy though, stores have been nuts already!

  4. Awww... I LOVE the pink and green and the cake is TOO cute! I can't wait to see how it all comes together in April. :) Sorry to hear about your stove - hope it gets up and running just in time. Though I must say, I'm really jealous of your snow - I wish we could get some here - but living in the Houston area doesn't afford me that luxury, unfortunately. So please enjoy it for me - as long as you're heat is working of course! :) Have a great day!

  11. Funny you mention the storm, I wrote a "sarcastic" blog post about a Southerns Snowed In essentials list today!!!! My 30th is also in April and I might just steal your ideas because I am not above having a pink+green+Lilly backyard bbq party!!!! I LOVE that idea and I can just see her in a pink + green tutu :)

  12. Oh I LOVE the pink and lime green color choices!!!!! So fun! I hope you get your heat figured out... 60 degrees!!! Yikes. I'm a lizard and if it were up to me, our house would be 80 degrees all the time... sadly my husband disagrees. Keep warm girl!!!

  13. First birthdays are so fun! I will say I think we ended up doing too big and it was a bit stressful entertaining everyone, while your baby could care less what's happening lol. I would say medium invite list is good.. But go all out on theme and decor! :)

  18. Omg I love your colour scheme and whole theme for Andi's birthday, I am sure it'll turn out great. I can't believe she will be 1 where has the time gone!? It is -3 here but still no snow, I wish the weather would give us something as its no fun being this cold if its not going to snow.
