I ❤ Faces: Balloons!

I hope you all have recovered nicely from your Halloween festivities. Once I finish my current bag of candy corn, I'm swearing it off until next year. Besides, I have to pass a pregnancy glucose test in two weeks :-0

Speaking of Halloween festivities, I was blown away by last week's I ❤ Faces winning entries were incredible! I hope you all had a chance to look at them this weekend--so creative. (check them out here if you missed their post)



Moving on to this week...the theme is balloons! Not satisfied with my current selection of balloon photos (of which there are plenty, trust me, since Cutie Face is a humongo fan of balloons), I decided to turn a rainy Tuesday afternoon into the perfect day for a photoshoot.

Cutie Face and I headed to CVS on Tuesday (but you can read more about that on our family blog here), bought some balloons, and then spent the next hour blowing them up. Well, she didn't blow them up (though she tried which definitely scared me--choking hazards!).

Turns out the only balloons available were water balloons.

So they're small.

And not so durable.

But, we finally had enough to cover her crib mattress so in went Cutie Face and on went the camera...3,000 clicks later*, i finally had a decent one which you can now view here...

as J said, "Well, it isn't a winner but at least she's cute!":


Don't forget to head on over to I ❤ Faces to see more balloon entries! They're sure to BLOW you away (yay! i love puns!)

*PS I also love hyperboles.

I cannot believe that I am #23 commenting when I am usually way up near the top. It happens I guess when you go to bed early and then not wake up until 4am for a bathroom break, use this time to enter in i heart faces and then head back to bed :)
BTW that cute little duckling was super good on halloween {all the girls were} but she lost it right near the end of the one and only street we went down. My little quacker was ready for bed. Hope you guys had a fun night and BTW I don't believe you about the candy corn! Sorry :)
