Niece or Nephew?

A month ago my mom and I threw a gender reveal party for my brother and sister-in-law. It was the first I’ve ever attended as well, so we had a lot of fun brainstorming details and bringing it all together. The best part? Finding out the gender before everyone else ;) Here are some pictures… [Read More]

Girl’s Night Out Bachelorette Bash

This last weekend I was in a wedding for my good friend Holly. It was beautiful. Exactly what you would dream up for a fall wedding. Hot cocoa, leaves blowing magically in the wind, and love in the air. Being a bridesmaid, I got to help in planning the bachelorette bash! I’m one of those weirdos who… [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]

Details of a 9th Birthday

Hey guys.  April is my nephew, Spencer’s, birthday month.  He turned 9 on the 13th, and my sis-in-law threw a great football themed party at a local gymnastic place.  The kids got to run around, jumping on trampolines, doing somersaults on mats, and basically do a ton of fun activities that would leave me sore… [Read More]

Weekend Recap

Wow. I went a whole week with no new blog posts, and it’s already time for another weekend recap!  This last week & weekend was super busy, but the good kind of busy.  I know I kind of failed at updating the blog, but- the good news is I did a lot of blog-related projects, which means… [Read More]

Superbowl Birthday Brunch

I love birthdays.  I don’t ever see myself getting to the age where I want to let my birthday sneak by without any celebration.  Hey, living another year is a blessing to be celebrated!  That being said, I am also a believer that we are entitled to a birthday week.  Cake before dinner?  Sure, it’s… [Read More]

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Bridal Shower

Okay you guys… this post is much overdue.  A long time ago, I did a post on my Breakfast at Tiffany’s Bridal Shower, and I really enjoyed sharing the details of the event.  The only thing?  I was a newbie blogger, photographer, and photoshopper.  (Yes, I did just make up the word photoshopper.)  Now, I… [Read More]
