A little late but still blog worthy! My dad turned 60 in 2015, I took all of his favorite things and turned them into his 60th birthday party theme. I went with a black and gold color scheme to tie it all together. Here is what I came up for pop's celebration....
Disclosure: Shari's Berries sent me two items from their New Year Gifts Collection to review. However all opinions expressed are my own.
Nothing says New Year's Eve celebrations like champagne, and what goes better with champagne than strawberries! Here are my easy to stick with resolutions and a super cute mint tablescape to toast the occasion with Shari's Berries sparkly champagne berries...
Tablescapes are my favorite posts to do. For Thanksgiving I thought I would put together a budget friendly tablescape for two.
With school coming into a full swing, family schedules are about to be quite hectic. Amidst shuffling the kids between extracurriculars and trying to squeeze in a gym session some nights who has time to cook? Insert Domino’s Pizza!
Did you know they are uniting pizza and salad lovers to the same table? Recently, the national pizza chain launched its salads nationwide. The perfect combo for both parents and kids, right? Also the perfect menu items for a back to school party to help the children get mentally prepared for the new school year.
Disclosure: I was sent a Petite Birthday Cake & Full Dozen Birthday Strawberries to encourage me to post about my Blogiversary from Shari's Berries. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
When I started my blog six years ago I had no idea what was branding, seo or that blogging was lucrative. I started my blog back in August of 2010 and pushed my first post live on 8/11/2010. It's crazy to think how time flies. What started out as a creative outlet to share my budget fashion fixes and my daughter's outfits, has turned into more than I could have ever fathomed back then but at the same time still so far from where I think it should be. Here are six lessons I've learned so far as a blogger....

From the moment I discovered that "The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking" was OnDemand it was a wrap! I introduced the film to the children and Aarlen was hooked, asking to watch Pippi 2-3 times a day. I am not going to lie, as his 3rd birthday approached I encouraged a "Pippi Party" since he had been loving it for the past few months. It took a little convincing be he agreed to a Pippi 3rd birthday party!
It has taken me two years to post my son, Aarlen's Woody's Roundup first birthday party. He just turned 3, before I share the details of that birthday I thought I would give you all the details on how to host a Woody's Roundup/ cowboy/ western themed birthday party.
A couple of weeks behind but I wanted to share our Easter Sunday with you, from the kids outfits, the Easter meal and decor! If you've been a reader of the blog for a while about then you know I have written about Resurrection sunday in some form or the other almost every year, this year was no exception.
With Easter quickly approaching I thought it would be nice to set up an Easter table setting and dessert table. After all, tablescapes are a favorite. I used things that I had as well as a few new things from my go-to places - Dollar Tree, the thrift shop and Amazon. Here is what I put together...
Blogger mom + Valentine's weekend, means having a friend over from school goes from just watching movies and eating a PB & J, to a Valentine's play date decked with a full-fledged tablescape. Here is how I set up a mini Galentine's date for my daughter and her bestie for less that $40!
