My Beefcake's First Birthday Burger Smash

The above picture kills me! It is as if my baby boy is in as much disbelief as his mama. How is it even possible that my sweet 8lb 15oz bundle of joy is turning ONE today? I feel like I was still pregnant just days ago. This, without exaggeration, has been the fastest, most rewarding and joyous year of my life! It seemed appropriate that I take pictures to commemorate my sweet little baby boy turning into a courageous and curious one year old.

I thought long and hard about my son's cake smash photoshoot. I probably began imagining how he would look covered in icing and cake long before he approached his first birthday. (OK, OK, I thought about it while I was still pregnant. Don't judge me!) The closer we got to his birthday though, the further my imagination drifted from the traditional cake smash photos. I totally want my little one to have some cake while we sing him the birthday song but since I'm sure we will have plenty of those kinds of pictures from his birthday party I wanted something completely different and unique for his commemorative first birthday photoshoot.

The idea for a burger smash came to me after I saw the adorable taco smash photoshoot that went viral earlier this year. Tacos are one of my favorite foods so those pictures totally resonated with me. I wanted to eat up that adorable baby and those delicious tacos! However, Griffin is not a big fan of Mexican food. (Crazy, right?!) You know what he is obsessed with though? Yep, In N Out Burgers! In N Out is a staple in our household and baby Griffin goes crazy for their cheeseburgers and fries! I knew that stuffing his face with his favorite food would make for some seriously cute first birthday smash photos! I hope you guys agree.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking a look at Baby Griffin's First Birthday In-N-Out Burger Smash photos! I hope they brought you as much joy as we had getting messy with cheeseburgers and fries.

You can order the ridiculously cute In-N-Out drink cup onesie here.
The white cake stands are from Home Goods. I added matching red and white striped ribbon from Michael's to them.

Friday Chic

Sometimes it just feels awesome to throw your hair in a pony tail, slip on a sweatshirt and jet out the door! This "Friday Chic" graphic hoodie is perfect for such occasions. It's super cute and I can see it quickly becoming my Friday uniform for fall 2015.

The jeans and hoodie combo was so laid back that it felt only natural to finish it off with my black and gold backpack from Target and my beloved black lambskin Chanel espadrilles. The hoodie really says it all because this outfit, even though totally casual, is effortlessly chic. In my book it is the perfect friday outfit for fall 2015.

I was so thrilled when I finally found these black Chanel espadrilles in my size! I called just about every store in California and they were all on back order. Then I lucked out on my trip to New York last winter when I found them at Bergdorf Goodman's. There was one pair left in my size and I about jumped for joy! There's nothing quite like Chanel and these Chanel espadrilles makes me smile every time I slip them on.

I also have an unhealthy obsession with ripped jeans. I swear 90% of my jeans look like they've been through the shredder. This particular pair I scored from the Joe's Jeans outlet at the Camarillo Premium Outlets. That outlet mall is quite spectacular! We paid $5 for a coupon book which took an additional $40 off these jeans, on top of the in store discounts that already applied! I love designer jeans but I hate paying full retail... this was a win, win!
