“Sweet Dance moves” cupcakes!

 

 

For Kolbie’s last dance class before recital we decided to make these treats for her to pass out after class. Strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting and a pearl gum ball on top. I made a circle tag that said, “Sweet Dance Moves” We went with purple because that is their costume color for recital. Her 1st dance recital is this saturday and we CANNOT WAIT!!!

I mean it feels almost like Christmas around here. I will have a post full of adorable dancy-ness next week!

Kolbie’s 4th Beach Themed Birthday! Also Featured on Hostess with the Mostess!!!

My kid’s birthdays are the highlight of my year! We have such a blast planning, baking, decorating and crafting. I make the kids decide on a theme in August so we have plenty of time to find some great deals. This year we went with a “Beach” theme with a slightly modern twist. I loved using yarn and craft tags with the bold solid colors along with the glass bottles. The only request from both of the kids the year was that I make their cake…yikes, this is so not my department so I took the easy way out and made cupcakes. We had crafts for the kids an ornament to decorate  and a sweet candy bar. Each girl had a tiny pail with fingernail polish that Kolbie specifically choose for everyone. She was so cute telling me who liked what color! We personalized the table with custom name tags and pink cups! I made funny little beach saying that were scattered throughout the house! Kolbie was so involved this year and helped me make all the treats. The hardest part was narrowing it down, this girl loves EVERYTHING!!!! Yes, of course the colors were pink and teel! The look on her face when she walked into the house after everything was set up was priceless. She could hardly contain herself!

This girl is so loved and we are so thankful to all her sweet friends and family that came to help us celebrate! Chris and I are so proud of her and we are still trying to figure out how she is already 4! Thank you Lord for giving us this precious girl, I love being her Mama! (and now I need a NAP!)

Kitchen Table Makeover!

I am so EXCITED to finally have my little kitchen table all done with a fresh coat of lovely tiffany blue! My Honey is super sweet! He will help me with any project no matter what crazy color I decide to slap on it! He did the sanding and prepping and I did the painting! I am tickled with how it turned out and now I am ready to paint the ugly brown mismatched chairs! Our next project is our laundry room! I cannot wait to get started on that bad boy!

(While Chris was sanding Kolbie and I got some fun side walk chalk drawing in)

Valentine’s Day Homemade Teacher Gifts

So this year for teacher gifts I wanted/needed (trying to be budget savvy) to make them something sweet and cute! I decided to have Kolbie help me make chocolate covered pretzels and put them in little mason jars with a tag and a stamp I found the other day at Michaels!  I think they turned out cute and were super easy and cheap!

I might have eaten a couple….errr or a few…..or a lot.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Y’all!!!!!
