Pampered Wedding Shower

8 Oct

Pamper shower 3 Pamper shower 4

I was invited to a “pampered’ wedding shower a few months ago and thought that theme was such a cute idea!  Then I had to think of what ‘pampered’ meant to me!

So apparently pampered means vodka, a traveler mug, bath salts, coconut lotion, a face mask, chocolate and a nail file.  Loved putting this gift together!  Oh, also, I am obsessed with bins, so I put it in a bin!

DIY Wreath

I have decided that I want to get good at wreath making!

Here is my Christmas wreath for our front door.

My mom picked me up a blank foam wreath from Michaels, as you can see in the first couple pictures above.  Then I just picked up several tubes of balls in different sizes from the Target $1 section and then hot glued the balls to the wreath.  I took off the tops of the balls where the hook attaches, put glue on the top of the ball tits and shuved them into the foam wreath.  Works like a charm!  Hubs got me a bling bling wreath hook for the door too!

I LOVE Christmas!

Baby Girls Accessory Wall

29 Jun

I covered an old canvas that I had with some super cute fabric. I just simply used a hot glue gun to get the fabric to stick, so it was really easy and quick!

Then, one of my amaz girlfriends put together the white picture frames with ribbons for holding accessories as a gift at my baby shower!

And my final touch was two cute wall hooks from Land of Nod for her coats, hats, scarves, etc. For now, the hook will hold the Boppy pillow.

Blueberry almonds: My husband ate the almonds in .5 seconds, so I am just going to assume that those are delicious! LOL!  Or maybe he was starving??  Probably a little of both!

ProFoot Pedi-Rock: I gave this a whirl the other night in the bath and it worked really well!  Its much easier to use because its not as hard as a pumice stone.  This product is more of a soft scrub and it fits in your hand nicely due to the shape.  I will try it a few more times and keep you updated!

Playtex Tampons:  I am pregnant, so I wont be able to give you any info on these for quite some time.  🙂

Easter!

5 May

Well, here I am out of the depths of two sicknesses while pregnant!  I wish that horrible stomach bug upon no one!  Not even my worst enemy!  Wooosh, that was insane!  And my hubs got it too.  Ok, I am done!

 

Easter is my 2nd favorite holiday next to Christmas!  I love decorating eggs, getting my son a cute new outfit, hiding eggs, Easter bunny pics, etc.!  I love all things Easter!  Here are some of my paper mache’ eggs that I decorated with my mom and her bff.  One before pic and one after.  We painted a couple coats on each egg and then glued various gems, bling and sticker strips to them.  Some we left plain as well.

Happy late Easter! XO

Mattress Money

Mattress Money

Do people still use the term ‘mattress money?’  Well, at our house, we do!  We started adding $50 a week to our money jar in January and will attempt to continue through the end of the year!  The budget will be squeezed after baby #2 comes around the end of June, but we will do our best to continue through December.  By the end of we should have $2,600 in our jar for a vacation!

You should try it too!

Fabric Covered Cork Board

7 Jan

I covered a cork board in some fabric for my mom for Christmas.  I used furniture nails to nail down the fabric and give it the upholstery nail look.  After I was done with the nails, I hot glued the fabric to the back of the board.  I think it turned out great and my mom loves it!  Such a quick cute gift idea!

Quick Cute Fall Decoration

Ross Moss final

 

I wanted a cute quick fall decoration and here it is!  My husband was out mushroom picking and found me some bright green moss and white-ish rocks.  I washed up the rocks, and tossed the moss on top!  Perfect for fall!  I might just put it on the table for Thanksgiving?

Happy Fall!
