The BIG 5 & What I Wore

April 9, 2009…Miss Ebby Lee Slaughter made her appearance.  LOVE at first sight!

 When she was 1 year and 3 days old, she became a BIG sister!  This was her sporting her “Big Sis” shirt at the hospital.  (She looks a LOT like Bowen to me here, huh?)

Girlfriend turned 2!!

Ebby Lee at her 3rd birthday party.

Sister was 4 last year and we celebrated Princess Party style!

And today on April 9, 2014, our girly turns 5!!  

We’ll be spending all day partying!!  (And…you might possibly find me in the fetal position crying in the corner!!  How is she 5??)  I’m SO thankful for this sweet girl and the laughter, sassiness, and ALL THE FUN she brings to our family!!  

Now..I’m linking up with my Wednesday ladies…. The Pleated Poppy for WIWWGet Your Pretty On, and Because Shanna Said So.

Me and my mini-me this week in our matching distressed jeans.  She was SO cute!

Grey Tee:  Shirt from Gap here (and 30% off with code BRIGHT)
Pink Tank:  Pink is sold out but other colors here.

    OH MY GOODNESS! 5? How are all of our babies turning 5? And yes, show totally looks like Bowen in that picture. I still find it so hard to believe she was such a baby when Nixon came along! And that pic of her when she was 2? PRECIOUS! And Nix was bigger than she was!
    And your last outfit with the camo, kimberly necklace, and jean jacket is perfection!

    Happy Birthday Ebby Lee. I am going to be right there with you in July. I am so excited and so nervous of what 5 means. I am pretty sure Hudson thinks he gets his drivers license when he turns 5. Your pictures are cute as always.

    When Kate (my oldest) turned 5, that was a hard one for me! I was so emotional…5 seemed so old! Hope she has a wonderful bday! (And, I can't believe you had your babies 1 year and 3 days apart…Rockstar!)

    Happy Birthday to your beautiful little girl! I wanted to ask you about your tanks. I need some new one and you always look so cute in yours. Do you have a store you prefer to get them from and do they ride up easily? THANK YOU!

    Thanks everyone!!! She had a FABULOUS day!!

    Sara…I have two favorites. I have a super long torso, so it's tough finding tanks long enough. I like Liz Lange Maternity Tanks from Target. They don't look maternity at all…they're just longer. There are cuter colors online than in stores. And…I also like Mossimo's Long & Lean tanks. LOTS of color choices. I have a couple Gap tanks too, but the Target ones are my absolute faves. Hope this helps!!

    I've been holding off on that military jacket but I might just have to bite the bullet. You look adorable in everything!
