A Birthday Alternative

 Next week, my little Libby will be nine. 
No, I don't want to talk about it...or think about.
I want her to be little.
But, nine it is.

And this year, we are having an alternative birthday. 

Usually, we go all out-- big party, lots of people, lots of fun. 

Well, we're still planning on having lots of fun....just with no party and way fewer people.

Instead of a party this year, Libby and I are headed out of town this weekend for a girl weekend with our best friends. 

Libby cannot WAIT to see Lily. 

And I cannot tell you how good some Kara time sounds right now. 

Alternative birthday sounds all kinds of awesome. 

There will be late night giggling. 
There will be Sonic. 
There will be a kitchen dance party. 

And I am so stinkin' excited. 

Signing off 'til Monday. 
See you then, friends. 

A few weekend reminders: 

-The Noonday blog train is in full swing. Don't miss out on a chance to win some Noonday!

- Sunday is the LAST DAY to request a little house for Emily! If you'd still like to request one, it's not too late! Just e-mail me at, and I'll send one your way. 

-This week's Sevenly cause is going strong! I'm so hoping they break a record! And remember: when you enter their site through my link and place an order, a portion of your order goes to our adoption fund! LOVE the idea of helping others while funding our adoption! 


  1. Happy early birthday, Libby! Tell your mom I nominated her for a Liebster Award on my blog! ;)
