I was going through my fabric scraps yesterday and found some long strips of fabric that were pretty but not really usable for sewing. I decided to braid them and make necklaces! I love how they turned out 🙂 totally original, easy and a fun scrappy look. Continue reading “Scrappy Necklaces”

Ninja Turtles Cake
I got the chance to make a ninja turtles birthday cake for a boy turning 6 this week! I was pretty excited/nervous because I wanted to make sure the details were all there for this little guy. I mean 6 year olds know their favorite characters really well am I right?! As I was doing this cake I found out my husband and several friends consider themselves ninja turtle fans (ahem… experts) from when we were that age 🙂 so I had lots of help getting this just right!

Wild Things Birthday Party!
Today is my son’s 4th Birthday! My youngest is 4?! Wow did that fly by… it’s been 4 wild years of learning to be a boy momma. A whole different experience from my girls that is full of dirt, wrestling, cars and noise! One I would also not trade for anything in the entire world, because it has brought so much joy, love and excitement! He is so sweet with a healthy dose of rough and tumble. His favorite book right now is Where the Wild Things Are. So much so that I read it to him about 10 times a week or more! He pretends to be Max and so I just knew it would make the perfect birthday party theme. We had his party on Friday night since his birthday is on a Sunday.
Lime + Mint Sugar Foot Scrub
I hope you all enjoyed your Mother’s Day weekend celebrating the mothers in your life. It is such a precious day to me as I hold my children that doctors told me I could never have. If you don’t know my infertility story you can read it here. I celebrated my mother, my grandmother, mother-in-law, friends who are mothers and a few Godly women who love on me as if I were their daughter. I spent the day thanking God for the mothers in my life in many forms and especially thanking Him for my sweet children that He gave me against all odds.
Easy Science Experiment: Cleaning Pennies

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I’ve heard that America celebrates this much more than Mexico, but regardless this is just another great excuse for my husband’s favorite food! He loves all Mexican food and tonight is having some guys over to watch the Oklahoma City Thunder game. So I decided to make him some homemade guacamole to share (or not share) with his friends.

Have you seen one of the latest trends in mommy wear? Teething/nursing necklaces! Adorable fabric sewn and tied around wooden beads for teething littles to safely chew on or nursing babes to hold and play with. I love them but they are pricey to buy and I found a super easy tutorial on making them cheap
