Growing Up Too Fast

Remember that time when it was Easter and you actually remembered to charge your “good” camera battery, bring it, go to use it, and you forgot to bring the SD card for it? Yea, that happened on Sunday, so you will be getting some awesome iPhone photos instead. :) But as I look at these […]

A Veggie Tales Party Under $25

I wasn’t even going to write about the girls’ Veggie Tales birthday party we just had, because as I had said in this post about extravagant parties, you know how I feel about those. BUT, their Veggie Tales cakes that my mom made I just have to share with you so I decided to show […]

Why I am Saying No To Extravagant Birthday Parties

You know that time you had kids and wanted to give them moon and the stars, and the best birthday party ever? That time you went all out and spent a lot of money in the process? That time you spent hours cleaning, decorating, and preparing food for the party? Well, this year I am […]

Family Update

So, I had every intention to show you all a decor post today. Had the topic all ready and everything. But then I started looking at pictures on my computer and realized that I haven’t shown off my girls lately, or my hubby. I really miss doing my monthly baby updates when I had Ellie! […]

This Is Going To Be A Challenge

Several months ago on a whim, I videotaped my 4 year old asking what she would like in her room. Her room that I need to redo. And this is her response. She’s the cutest thing ever by the way. And if you can’t see the video below, here is the link to it.

Sofia The First Party

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a crazy summer full of birthdays and we just finished up Emma’s 4th birthday party last weekend. She is really into Sofia the First right now (a new princess) so she wanted a Sofia party. I was worried about topping last years party because Ms. Foofa herself came to her Gabba party, but I didn’t want to pay for a character again this year. So, I was hoping by getting Emma the princess Sofia dress would suffice, and it did. Whew!

For the party, we used a lot of purples, golds, and white and I thought it came out really pretty.

How To Take Gorgeous Bokeh Christmas Tree Pictures

Hey everyone (does that sound familiar?)! Thanks for the love and sweet words on my video. Y’all are seriously TOO nice. :) And just as giggly as I was in my video, today I am more giggly and giddy because I finally got some good bokeh shots of our Christmas tree.  You know, those little lights you see in the background almost floating around and bubble-like? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m talking about these:

Life With Two and My Recovery

I’ve received several emails from some of you asking how it is now having 2 kids now and asked how I’ve been feeling from my c-section.  So I thought I’d write a little bit about it, what we’ve experienced so far, and how we deal with it. First of all, the c-section: I can honestly […]

Come and Meet Our New Sweet Pea {The New Baby!}

Well I’ll just get right to it, so if you haven’t heard yet, we had a GIRL!!!  We welcomed Ellie Marie into this world on Sunday, July 1 at 1:09 p.m. And she couldn’t be any more perfect.  She weighed in at 7lbs 6oz, a full pound more than Emma, so all of those late […]

Stop the Time, Please

This may sound silly, but I was really boo-hooing the other night looking at old pictures.  I was taking Emma strawberry picking yesterday, so I was looking at the photos from the last time I took her, which was exactly 2 years ago to the date. It just made me sad realizing that she’s not […]

The Birthday Party

I told you all I was keeping it simple right?  Well, I stuck to it and did! Just got some balloons and Elmo decorations, and I was done.  And I didn’t even cook one thing. It was a joy, let me tell you. We just ordered lots of these… And let people eat whenever. The […]

The Birthday Mantel

A certain little girl is turning 2 this weekend! Oh my.  We are having a little party here at the house, but I’m not going crazy on decorations or anything (or food), so don’t be expecting some elaborate birthday party post.  Although it was pretty, last year’s party was just a little too nutty for […]

At This Time Last Year…

Was my sweet baby girl. Ahh, she’s gotten so big in the last year.  Look at those squishy little feet!  It’s hard for me to look at old pictures of her and I choke up pretty much every time, but I am excited for another photo shoot on Christmas day. :)  I have a feeling […]

And We Partied…

Sorry this isn’t a home decor project (but I did make a few crafty things so that counts), but several of you wanted to see Emma’s birthday party so here it is.  This was another kind of project in itself! The theme was kind of princessy, polka dots, and hot pink. I asked people to […]
