This is a picture of New Year’s Eve. No, that’s her name. She was born on New Year’s Day and I had the opportunity to celebrate her birthday with her this year this year. It was a bright and sparkly event–as a bubbly 5-year-old girl’s birthday should be. I was happy to help her mom […]

2014 in Review

2014 in review

2014 has been quite a year for me personally! Most of my year has revolved around this little man. The first half of the year dealing with pregnancy and the second half taking care of a newborn. This child, while delightful, has not been the easiest child, so the quantity of posts on my blog […]

Hostess Holiday Treats DIY-8369

I work with a lot of different companies as a blogger on various sponsored posts.

Since I posted my Disney’s FROZEN-themed winter party on the blog in December, it has quickly become one of my most pinned posts on Pinterest!
