July Birthdays

Hey, how was your weekend? Mine went much too quickly but was enjoyable all the same. Friday we had our July birthdays celebration with my family. My sister-in-law made the prettiest (and tastiest) cake! The party was a hoot, as always. I love my fam.  Hope your week is super sweet! XO

Weekend Snapshots + A Decade

Hey, how was your weekend? I hope it was wonderful! Mine was pretty relaxed. It included lounging, beer & Wii with the husband, grocery shopping, and baking.  Does anybody else have dog siblings who like to use the other as a pillow? Or is it just my pups? Monday (yesterday) was my nephew’s 10th birthday…. [Read More]

January Birthdays

This past weekend my family and I got together to celebrate us kids with January birthdays. Even though my cousin, my brother, and I turned 31, 30, and 25 respectively- we’re still kids. It’s a state of mind, you see. Saturday we got together for dinner which consisted of my mom’s delicious pulled pork (a… [Read More]

Eat, Drink & Turn 25 | Part 3

Hello! Today I’m sharing our third and final day in Vegas- my birthday! (If you missed the last day, here’s a link.) To start out the day, my parents gave me a present I’d been eyeing at Starbucks earlier in the trip… this awesome Las Vegas Starbucks mug! I love it! For breakfast, we headed… [Read More]

Eat, Drink & Turn 25 | Part 2

Welcome to day 2 of my birthday Vegas vacation- my birthday eve! If you missed day 1, check it out here. When my alarm went off at 7 a.m. on Friday morning, I had to drag myself out of bed. We were a little slow to get up and at ’em, but I’m still proud… [Read More]

Eat, Drink & Turn 25 | Part 1

A little over a week ago (January 10th) I turned 25! Since my birthday wouldn’t fall on a Saturday again for awhile, I made the most of it by taking a trip to Las Vegas, for the 4th time! (Read all about why I’ve been to Vegas four times here.) It was a wonderful three day trip… [Read More]

Happy Birthday Hubby

Okay, so yesterday was really my hubby’s birthday, but I thought I’d hop on here and share how we celebrated! I love birthdays, even if they’re not my own:) We’re actually going on a big camping trip, not this weekend, but next- to celebrate his (and one of his best friend’s) birthday. I’m super excited! There’s… [Read More]

Throwing a Surprise 50th Birthday Party

Last summer my momma turned 50.  Being the only girl of four, I knew it would be up to me to make sure she had an awesome celebration.  I didn’t mind though- I live for this stuff! Planning, baking, crafting, celebrating!  (Some of my favorite things.)  I had been thinking about a surprise party for her… [Read More]

Favorite Auntie

This past weekend was perfect. We made a quick trip over to the Portland area to attend a surprise birthday party for my Auntie Laura. (She’s not technically my aunt, she’s my mom’s best friend- but regardless, she’s my favorite auntie and one of my favorite people in general.) We left early on Saturday morning and drove… [Read More]

Gluten & Dairy Free Birthday Party

Yep, we did it.  My mom and I managed to throw a gluten and dairy free birthday party, when neither of us are gluten or dairy free. Why, then, would we do such a thing, you ask? Because the party was for my sister-in-law, who is gluten and dairy free.  Every holiday we rack our brains to try and… [Read More]
