Fall Baby Shower Brunch

On the last day in September my mom hosted a beautiful fall baby shower brunch for me and baby girl. I got to help with the details which I love, and it went flawlessly. When we were discussing how to seat everybody, I mentioned how I’d seen short tables where people sit on pillows on… [Read More]

Sweet September Shower

In September my hubby’s mom and step-mom threw a very sweet baby shower where I got to celebrate with lots of the lovely ladies on his side of the family. The weather was beautiful, and it felt like summer wanted to stick around just a little longer. There were lots of pink decorations, a gorgeous… [Read More]

Baby {Girl} BBQ

In early August we had a baby BBQ at our house with friends to celebrate our sweet baby girl. Other than super hot temps and smoke that had recently rolled into our valley, it went off without a hitch! I knew right away when we got pregnant that I wanted to have an event that included my… [Read More]

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]
