An Indie - Woodland Baby Shower

Last weekend we had a Indie-woodland themed shower for my little sister.
She is expecting her first baby and she is having a boy…baby Reuben.
I am so excited for her and can't wait to be an Aunt to my first nephew!!

This was my inpiration for the shower…

I knew this theme would fit perfect with my sister's style.

 the shower was held at a family friends house. I was in charge of coming up with all the decorating ideas.  

the table turned out even better than I imagined it.  Everyone did such an amazing job making sure my sister had the best baby shower.

Everyone did such an amazing job putting her shower together. This was something I have been looking forward to doing one day and was so honored to be able to.
Now counting down the days to meet my sweet nephew!

Spring Break // hike to Rainbow Falls

we went to the smokies for spring break. our plan was to get out and explore the park as much as we could. we hiked to three different waterfalls while there. our first hike was rainbow falls. it was a very foggy and muddy day. the pictures show you a little glimpse of how beautiful it was, but they do not do it justice. i love that our kids are at the perfect age where we can start sharing things like this with them and hopefully they will want to do the same with theirs one day.

{ Valentine's Day Cards }

This is A's V-day cards from last year that I failed to share.  I have seen these done before and always thought it was such a cute idea. So we gave it a try and I think they turned out perfect!

Sparkle and Shine party...

 My girl had a very sparkly, shiny, glittery party for her Ninth birthday. 
It was so much fun putting together! 
However, I think I'm going to be seeing glitter for weeks! 

 The cake was amazing! It was a fresh strawberry cake with butter cream icing.

I had some of Avery's favorite appetizers and sparkling grape juice served in my champagne glasses. The girls loved it... almost a little too much! ; ) 
Then they got to sprinkle their own cupcakes at the "Sparkle Bar".

Each girl made their own sparkly crown out of pipe cleaners then they made a glittery canvas with their initial. I think they all turned out so cute! 

 After food and crafts the girls got to have a Sparkle dance.....

This party turned out so cute and the girls had a great time! I could not have pulled all this off without the help of my sister and my mom. So Thank you!!

Christmas 2013: Around the house....

I can't believe Christmas is only two days away! My favorite time of the year! So before it comes and goes... I wanted to share our home for Christmas....

Our first hand picked and cut real tree.  It's not the perfect shape, but it sure does smell good! It fills the whole house with that wonderful pine smell. Love it!

I always want to change my color scheme every year, but I can't seem to give up the red. I just love how it looks around Christmas time. It would not feel right without it. So it stays the same...for now.
 I was given the silver goblets by my mother-in-law and wanted to put them to use.  I decided to use them as my center piece for our dinning room table. I really like how it turned out. I still want to add some glittering stars on them and branches, but at this point I will probably leave it as is.

 This is our little candy cane tree. Avery had fun decorating it. I wanted to put it in my galvanized tub, but it would not fit so I added some burlap and a bow instead.

Now that I have a hot chocolate station set up, we have not been able to keep enough of it in the house. I am on hot cocoa runs non stop!

Well there is  a peek into our house around Christmas time... including Pilot : )

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Holidays!
