    A Ninja Party to Celebrate my sons 4th Birthday!

    This post is way overdue but I still want to document it, because my little guys Ninja Party was SO much fun! His birthday is Christmas week, so we celebrated a month early in November, and until he realizes otherwise, Ill do it that way every year. It was so good to be able to make him feel so special, and it didn’t get drowned out by Christmas. He was sooo excited, he counted down for monthssss guys, months. The night before his party, my husband and I stayed up after the kids were in bed, and decorated for it, and when he came down the next morning, it was…

    Where the Wild Things are First Birthday!

    Ahhh! I can’t believe my BABY is ONE and we’ve already celebrated his first birthday! Quickest year of my life..so cliche to say, but it truly was. I feel like with each kid, times just goes by faster and faster, its wild! This year has been so much fun, this sweet boy brought something extra to our family that I didn’t even know we needed and I’m so grateful every day for him! for all my babies! We threw a little last minute birthday party for him, shortly after we got back from our month long vacation in Maine! It was thrown together quickly, but we had all of our…

  • We leave for Maine at the beginning of August, so we only have about a month left of our Summer in Washington! We're filling our weekends with fun and trying to cross some things off our summer bucket list! Ive always wanted to have an outdoor movie night with the kids! So last weekend, we made it happen! We picked a movie they hadn't see yet, we watched The Lion King, the original, the boys LOVED it! They were up dancing around and laughed their butts off at timone and pumba! They watch The Lion Guard occasionally on Disney, so it was kinda fun explaining the difference to them! So steps to the perfect outdoor movie night? have a fire and make s'mores before it gets to dark! We live in the PNW, where it stays light out until about 930-10:00 so we had to keep the kids busy for a couple hours after we put the little babe to bed! We sat around the fire and made s'mores and it was so nice to just have some time with the two older boys! have lots and lots of candy! & popcorn! We took the kids to the store that morning and let them pick out two types of candy each and then that night during the movie, let them just go to town! I kept pushing for more chocolate at the store, but they just werent having it...thennn, the chocolate was the first to go, what do you know? :P set up lots of blankets and pillows and cushions and crawl and get snuggly with your kiddos because its the best thing ever when they snuggle into the crook of your arm or lay their head across your chest

    DIY | Marble & Gold Bar Cart (for under $10!)

    I love having a bar cart! It’s such fun decoration, real cute and easy to serve friends a quick drink when they stop in! I’ve had this utility cart from IKEA for about a year, I spray painted the frame gold when I first bought it to match the rest of my house, but then I left it alone from there., at the time it was enough. Then I got bored with it, it was a little plain and I wanted something a little more dressed up!Β  So I recently spent a few weeks shopping around for a new bar cart. They’re pretty pricey, and I knew it wasn’t a…

All opinions are mine alone. #MakeItAMovieNight #CollectiveBias Movie nights (or afternoons, because if I’m being honest, my kids have a strict bedtime…for my sanity and all! πŸ˜‰ ) are one of my favorite activities to do as a family. They’re fun, easy- we don’t have to get dressed, pack everyone into the car and go anywhere, laid back, and usually pretty tasty! (because lets be real, there’s no good movie night without snacks!) This time of year especially, with all the grey, rainy days, we love to spend a Saturday afternoon lounging on the couch at home, with…
