Tag Archives: Parties

Last year I photographed Caroline’s Ice Cream party.  I was honored that her mom asked me to design the party goods this year for she & her brother’s circus themed party.  You can see more of them here.

Missy’s sister-in-law, Allison, of Poetry and Prose Photography photographed the event and shared these images with me.  Everything turned out SO cute.  Not that I would have expected any less from Missy.  Her parties are always Pinterest worthy.   Enjoy the eye candy!

Yay, it’s Friday! Linking up with Darci, Christina, Liz, and Natasha for another Five on Friday post.


01.  Bridal Shower Planning – I’ve been busy getting some of my DIYs prepped for Ashley’s shower next weekend.

02.  Christmas Shopping – That sounds pretty insane, right?  Truthfully I have come across some Very Jane goodies that I just couldn’t pass up.  Like a bubble necklace for my mini for only $7.00.  Hello…stocking stuffer!

03.  Soaking up the summer – This week we have been swimming, to the aquarium, roller skating, and more.  We’re trying to soak up these last days of summer before school begins.  As much as I am anxious for some time to myself…I want this year to go by super slow.  Because next year I will have a Kindergartener on my hands.  And that just blows my mind.

04.  Crunchy Taco Casserole – Not the healthiest meal out there…but definitely family friendly.  However, I did swap the beef for ground turkey.  I was shocked to hear my Hudson say “Mom…thank you for this dinner.  We should have it again”.  Score!  He is the pickiest eater ever so that was music to momma’s ears.  Here is the recipe.

05.  Keep Calm – This print made me laugh this week.  It’s so been one of those weeks.  The terrible threes are getting the best of me.  Any mommas out there have any tips for me?

Hi everyone!  I am linking up with Darci, Natasha, Christina, and April for another Five on Friday post.




01.  Cucumber Moscow Mule — In addition to buying a couple of copper mugs and the makings for Moscow Mules for my friends, Crystal and Dan, I bought a set for myself also.  When browsing Pinterest for a recipe I came across this Cucumber Moscow Mule.  Sounds pretty amazing to me!


01.  Hashtag Note cards – I think this hashtag note card set from Ashley Brooke Designs is just #darling!  Am also obsessed with her mugs.  The “Everyday I’m Hustlin” is a favorite gift of mine to give.


03.  Bridal Shower Planning – Ashley is getting married in less than 6 weeks.  So the bridal shower planning is in full affect.  I, along with a handful of her friends, are throwing her a brunch to celebrate.  When I spotted this metallic dot burlap it had Ashley written all over it…and let’s be real it had me written all over it too.  Can’t wait to see how we pull it all together to celebrate one of our favorite girls.


04.  Rodan + Fields – My friend, Christy, sells Rodan and Fields.  Have you heard about it?  They are the doctors behind Proactive.

I have been hearing the wonders of the product line for some time and figured it’s high time that I start an anti-aging regimen.  Let’s face it…I’m not getting any younger.  This is not Christy but an image I spotted that I have been amazed by.  The Reverse line helps to remove sun damage and take years off of your face.  So excited to see how these products work for me.

05.  Chalkboard Downloads – I recently came across this Amazing Grace chalkboard design that I love.  A 24×36 sized download is only $9.99.  I had it printed on canvas as a gift for my stepmom.  I think chalkboard downloads are amazing.  Some of my other favorites are Recipe for Crazy and J&Paper.


I hope you lovelies have a great weekend.  I am off on a little adventure with my babes (read:  a road trip to see family).

We celebrated Ashley’s 30th birthday with a party at her place.  She throws such fun parties — they brought in a musician who was the icing on the cake.  We all sat around late into the night listening under the twinkly lights.
