Joey's 9th Red Carpet Birthday



We celebrated my oldest's birthday earlier in August. She came up with the theme for "red carpet." She always has the idea, then let's me run with it (which I adore about her, plus she is so cute). Her Auntie took her for a makeover before hand and she looked the part as she came up the red carpet! Which by the way, is just red plastic table cloth duct taped to the sidewalk.

Her website coming soon at Seymour of Life Photography.

Sunday sweets

We made caramel apples and pumpkin bags full of cheese balls to deliver to our favorite neighbors today. The dollar store made this little project super affordable! We took a pause at halftime of the game to deliver them!

Mini surprise party

This past weekend we threw a mini surprise party for one of besties! We all went out to dinner first then we snuck back and decorated her hotel room in about 15 minutes before she came in! It was a perfect something extra to the b-day celebration. A few balloons and zebra print streamers went a long way! I made cupcake toppers out of all her favorite singers/bands and incorporated songs lyrics for birthday wishes! Definitely original and tons of fun!

pony party

I clearly need to work on my picture taking skills- this party was so adorable and these pictures do not do it justice at all. So disappointing! This brown and pink themed pony party was for my youngest Charlie's 3rd birthday party. The pony clip art was a download from Collective Creation store on Etsy. You can see the invites here.


 Party favors were pony hoodies! DIY coming soon.

Monster eye cupcakes

Perfect for Halloween! Halfway homemade because I just can never get made from scratch cupcakes to taste as good as a box of mix- I have never claimed to be a baker! Decorator- definitely!
Two tricks. 1. Smooth the Oreo frosting with a warm knife. 2. Use long toothpicks to stabilize the eyes- I learned this one the hard way!

First quilt!

For some crazy reason I decided to make a quilt for my lovely sister in law's newest addition to the fam! I was a woman obsessed and finished it in a couple days. Picking the fabric was my favorite, wrestling the thick batting through the sewing machine my least! I even added a little embroidered 'q' at the end. I will definitely be making more. I read Elise's posts here for guidance.
