DIY Unicorn Costume

DIY unicorn costume Pottery Barn Kids

Being that it is still 90°+ outside, it’s a bit difficult to wrap my head around the fact that it is officially fall.  Last year I threw together a DIY Rosie the Riveter costume at the last minute and my daughter ended up giving out major Tupac vibes, so I wanted to put a bit more thought and time into it this year.  I really liked this Pottery Barn Kids costume, but at $89, it is clearly not happening!  I used coupons at Jo-Ann Fabric and bought the shirt on sale at Old Navy for $4.  I think the grand […]

Gigi’s First Birthday Tea Party

First Birthday Partea Time! Holy cow.  I really cannot believe that a year has come and gone so quickly.  I’ll skip all the cliche mushy feelings, and just skip to the important stuff – her birthday party. I really don’t have a ton of friends, which sadly cuts into Gigi’s friend circle. (Sorry Georgia; mom’s a loser.) So the party was all adults, but  I swear I’m working on some baby friends soon! I had the Pinterest Mom Guilt (it’s real guys!) and have been planning an elaborate party and cake smash for months.  I went through several themes from flamingos, swans, […]

So drop what you are doing and head to the store for your own Easter basket haul… after you finish reading this post. I think I’ve mentioned this earlier but we […]

How to: Create An OK Valentines Basket

Christmas is over and its time to focus on the next holiday up- Valentines day.  Side note- I should really take my tree down. As a kid, Valentines Day was my favorite holiday. My mom threw me these awesome after school tea parties. There would be a spread of cutesy decorated sweets and kiddy champagne in my teapot…. I felt like a celebrity. The cherry on top was always the Valentines basket. I knew the minute I heard “its two girls” at my 20 week ultrasound that this was a tradition I had to keep alive. Plus you gotta soak […]

Felt Flower Headband DIY

So I wasn’t sure about posting this headband, because it was so big, that it bordered looking a little bit like a weird peony hat.  I think it would work better on an older child, or maybe grouped with a couple smaller flowers, but it was still pretty cute.

How to: Create an Ok Tree

So Christmas time is upon us yet again. Inevitably you will be bombarded with images of perfect decor on Pinterest and Instagram, where ladies of leisure taunt us with their sponsored $900 trees and handmade garlands. Places like Pottery Barn start sending out those catalogs, reminding you that your children might just need their own trees in their rooms (NOT HAPPENING). Well I’m not Martha, or a celebmommy Instagrammer… But… I’m gonna share my tree tips, because I like you!
