Krewpalooza Week

Today officially kicks off my babies 1st birthday week! Call us crazy but in the Collins world we celebrate birthdays for weeks, even the whole month! My sisters birthday was yesterday so now that that is over we can all fully focus on Krewpalooza! I have so much in the works for his birthday party on Saturday! I am planning on over 30 people being there. I feel so much love already! Krew got blessed with a seriously cool set of Grandparents, my mom and dad have gone all out in order to help celebrate his birthday and we couldn't be more thankful! I am going to highlight him all week on my blog. Mostly pictures, not really any talking because who wants to hear read me anyways?

This was me 1 year ago today (tonight actually) seriously I remember being so swollen. I had only cleaned my house a dozen times. Alas, my hair was at least curled!

This was our last night out to dinner just the 2 of  us. Which is actually a rare occasion nowadays!

This was our last holiday as a family of 2! The 4th of July. Look at my tinsy bump, I remember it starting to show up!

If we had only known then what we know now. Krew runs the damn show! I can't wait to share more about his birthday week as this week continues. Since when am I a mom and a mom to a 1 year old at that!?


Pumpkin Patch 2013

I LOVE starting our own family traditions! This year has been so much fun now that Krew is older and more aware of the things that are going on around him! A few weeks ago we took him to the pumpkin patch with some good friends and then went to Olive Garden for dinner! It was such a fun night, we will most definitely be doing it again next year! (maybe even with baby #2 in belly) Anyways, I will let my pictures do the talking. The other little boy pictured is one of my best friends boys, they are only a month apart! It's been so fun watching them grow up and learn together! (hi, jen!)

I love my little family and am feeling very blessed this time of year!!


In awe

It's been a week almost since I blogged last. I can't think of a better thing to come back and blog about then my baby boys 1 year pictures! I am only going to post a couple, the others I cherish forever. I cannot believe my baby Krew will be 1 in 1 week! I am so amazingly blessed. Words cannot ever describe how much being a mother has completed my life. Every time I look at him I tell myself how lucky I am. Without further due:

If  you are in Utah I cannot rave about FotoFly enough. These pictures take my breath away and I instantly shed a tear when I saw them!



I have been practicing the "milkmaid" braids for so long now. I saw them on Khloe Kardashian on an episode of KUWTK and have been determined to wear it ever since!

BUT this post isn't centered around my hair like the rest of my world. See this amazing necklace I am wearing? I have been on the lookout for something to wear in my family pictures at the end of the month and I found it!
