Travis’ Golden Birthday

Now that I know what Golden Birthdays are I couldn’t resist throwing one for my hubby. He’s less decisive than I am, so planning this shindig was literally only a couple of days before the get together took place. Travis decided that he wanted to go on a Cowtown Cycle in Fort Worth for his birthday and can I say it was a BLAST even if my butt was sore for a few days afterward.

Easy Steps to Make Your own Candy Cake 

My sister’s birthday was coming up, and I knew that there was nothing more she loved than chocolate! So I copied a cake I had seen on Pintrest. I just winged the cake on my own, so if you actually look on Pintrest you may find other directions- but mine turned out better than I expected- so I included my trusty steps!

Loofah Halloween Costume

Halloween is only a couple months away. I figured now would be a great time to share with your an outfit and Elisabeth and I made a couple of years ago.We decided to try out a costume idea that we saw on Pinterest. Have you seen the super cute DIY loofah costumes? We found our example here at this blog. The instructions that were given were VERY easy to follow and our costumes turned out exactly like the picture. We were very happy and got so many compliments! We really liked that these required no sewing and no glue… just netting and elastic!

Adriana’s Bachelorette Weekend Floating the River

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my friend, Adriana’s, bachelorette party. Let me tell you, we had a blast despite the unusual May rain we were experiencing in Texas. Adriana chose to have her bachelorette party floating the river outside of San Marcos, in Texas hill country. We stayed for two nights at some great cabins, Hideout on the Horseshoe, on the Guadalupe River. The best part about these cabins is you can stay and float which means your tubes to float are included and you can get off right in front of the cabins! I wanted to not only share our fun trip, but the crafts some of us made for Adriana and the girls attending.

How to Make Your Own Marquee Signs

Today I’m finally sharing the marquee ’28’ signs that I made for my Golden Birthday Party! I used the marquee to complete my photo booth area. To my surprise this project was actually very easy and just a little time consuming. I got the idea from Chloe Moore Photography and the pictures from Oh Happy Day helped me the most! I really love how the entire area came together especially with the fun photo booth props!

Zachary’s Prehistoric First Birthday Gift – Radio Flyer with Custom Decals

It’s my favorite little guy’s 1st birthday and I cannot believe it’s already been a year since he was born! Zachary is my close friend, Kristi’s, son! When Zach was born I worked long and hard on a stuffed Hobbes for him since that’s his dad’s favorite comic. Wanting to stick with that theme, I decided that we would get Zach a Radio Flyer for his 1st birthday, which I bought on Amazon along with the awesome book, Friday My Radio Flyer Flew, by Zachary Pullen!! I envisioned Calvin and Hobbes decals all around the wagon, unfortunately I did not have a device that would let me upload my own images…so on to the next idea! Zach’s 1st birthday theme is dinosaurs so I knew that I could put dinosaurs all around the wagon.

E’s Golden Birthday Party

A little something about my husband and me, is that we love to have parties with our closest friends. We especially love a good themed party! I turned 28 on the 28th, making it my ‘Golden Birthday’. To be completely honest, before last year I had never heard of a Golden Birthday and as soon as I learned about it I knew I had to throw a Golden Party. I asked my guests to wear anything with gold on it, and the turn out was fantastic. I wanted to share a couple of pictures from the party decor, food, and the photo booth I made, instructions on how to coming soon!
