so many things to celebrate...



i've been feeling completely on cloud 9 for the past week or two.
i think because of several reasons...

the one i said i entered just for fun?
the contest on the creative hostess site...
searching for the most adorable kids party of 2009?

well...
the winners were announced yesterday...


i couldn't believe my eyes!
apparently 200+ entries...
and there were sooo many that were over-the-top creative/adorable.
and i won 2nd place?!
amazing!
if you want some awesome party ideas you should TOTALLY go here.
scroll down and look through the comments section.
click on the links readers left behind to view the different party entries...
totally inspirational!
and you should definitely go check out the first and 3rd place winners...
a vintage carnival theme by zuesette of marizette paperie won 1st place.
the 3rd place winner was an adorable construction party by Jessica of Juicy Bits...
WOW!
details!
needless to say i felt very humbled yesterday...
and completely thrilled & surprised!

thank you creative hostess for hosting the contest...
and a special thanks to the judges:
and my dear, sweet friend...

and there's still more things to celebrate...
fun commissioned jobs for invites/announcements...
a sweet personal story sent to me from one of my readers - relating to the "be" print.
(you know who you are)...

& looking forward to accomplishing goal #5 on saturday...
a picnic with the family...
...bubbles & photography included. *wink*

and so many more goals "in progress"....
there's so much power in writing your goals down...
but there's even more power in looking at them everyday...
and doing small things each day to scoot yourself closer to your desired result.

where are you at with your own personal goals?

great big ole hugs to you all...
you make my world go around...

Keeping It Real:
i'm much more motivated to achieve these creative "before birthday goals" than say...losing weight, eating better or exercising.
why is that?
oh yeah.
the creative goals are more fun. *wink*

and what about that "thing" i mentioned i'd be posting?
some sort of valentine's day inspiration?
well.
supplies have been gathered.
and that's about it.
my goal was to have things assembled yesterday...
pictures taken and ready to post today.
you know...
to send you off with some valentine's inspiration for the weekend.
looks like i won't get to post until monday.
darn it!
