Mom's 50th Birthday Bash

Cristina and I threw a 'zebra inspired' 50th birthday party for my mom and here are some of the pictures.

All photos are courtesy of Forrest Harris, a local Houston photographer.

Her invites

We had these little groupings around the room with different pictures and stories of things she had accomplished in her 50 years. We also wrapped presents to add the colors and a touch of zebra!

This was the table you saw from the front door

Her cake

My momma with the food table

It wouldn't be a Harris party without these 3 things...

I loved the little flags that I saw on P is for Party

Our struggling chocolate fountain... it still tasted good!

each of the kids got up and 'roasted' my mom with some of our favorite funny stories.

Happy Birthday!

The party was such a success and so much fun. Happy Birthday Mom, Love you!

Harris Family 2010 Pictures

While I wait for my brother to finish editing my mom's 50th party pics, here are our Harris family pictures that we took right after Christmas. They turned out great and the photographer was really fun- her name is Jennifer Rossi and here is her website.

I chose a few of my favorite shots and one of each couple...

My brother Forrest and his wife Sarah

My brother Houston and his wife Cristina

My half-brother Victor and his wife Michele, who came in town for the holidays- we are trying to convince them to join the party and move to Houston!

My cute parents Janet and Victor

Proud Nana and Pops with their grandbaby

The 50the party turned out so wonderful and I just can't wait to show off all the pictures that Forrest took- hopefully it won't be too much longer!!

My Baby Got some MOVES!

Here is a little video of Austin shakin' his groove thang! He actually has some pretty awesome "break-dance" moves that you catch a second of at the end...but my all time favorite move you will see right after the 20 second mark. Enjoy!

Zebra Inspired 50th!

I am down to my very last big party..for now, my Mom's 50th! Too bad my son's 2nd birthday party lands 3 weeks after it and I just don't have any juice left! The party planning is going great and I think Cristina and I will pull it off. Here is a peek at the invites that went out... the wording obviously is different than this one from

and here are a few other inspiration pictures that we used for that party.

I thought these little toothpick flags were so adorable (just imagine it in zebra, fushia or plum!)

and I loved the idea of using presents to decorate the house, like the picture in the bottom left corner...

More picture to come after this weekend!

Here are a few cute pictures of my little TODDLER after church this Sunday.

isn't he just the sweetest thing ever!?
