DIY Milk Jar Wall Decor

YOU GUYS!!! I can't get over how excited I am to share this project with you! Projects like this get me so pumped up about crafting and creating. It's amazing how some basic items can come together and just look so.....well, perfect! Can you tell I'm excited? Like a kid meeting all the Disney Princesses on her birthday in her special birthday dress excited. Wow. I love pictures, love printables, but sometimes I just need something more. Sorry pics, it's not you - it's me. If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook then you saw me post a sneak peek [...]


DIY Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Mother's day is fast approaching, are you ready for it? Our mothers day gifts for the grandma's are usually garden/outdoor based, probably because we've been cooped up all winter. The boys like to pick out the brightest colored snapdragon plant for my mom to plant in her pots. I remember as a kid making them open and close at my grandmother's house so it's pretty neat that they'll be able to make that association with their own grandma as they age! I've rounded up a few easy DIY idea's that you could make in a short amount of time, for very little money but[...]


An Army Party

Ever since Carter could dream of a career, he's wanted that career to be in the Army. We're not entirely sure where this originated from or what brought it on, we don't watch an abundance of army/war related movies nor are we hugely patriotic in the sense that we were born to serve our country.

Well actually, he asked for a Call of Duty party, to which I said No. Then it was a Halo party, uh - No. Enter a huge dramatic sigh and the response of "Fine, I'll have a hockey party". I was kind of[...]


A Skylander & Minecraft Birthday

Warning: This is a very birthday related and photo heavy post! This past weekend we celebrated Carter 9th birthday. 9! I still can't believe it. Over the years he's a had a few interests that he's been pretty focused on and those interests have carried through to his birthday "theme" of sorts. I never thought I'd be a birthday theme mom, but here I am - guilty as charged! It all started with Skylanders....and the fact that I was pregnant with Ellie. I was totally feeling Susie Homemaker-ish and Supermom-like and decided that the kid needed a styled table and[...]


Dye-less Easter Eggs

Hey, hey! Long time no talk peeps. The past couple of weeks have been crazy busy, CRAZY. And it's nowhere near stopping either. We've celebrated so many birthday's, hockey wind-ups, & family functions over the past few days that Monday was almost a welcome thing. Almost. Guess what? I turned 30 yesterday, whaaaat?! I know! CRAZY (favorite word this post). More about that in another post though. Carter turns 9 on Saturday and then Sunday we celebrate Easter. One of our favorite things to do is decorating eggs. We usually buy the kits and do variations of[...]
