So we got our first paying gig. We were hired to put on an Amazing Race party for a girl turning 12. We were up for the challenge.
Well it happened. My baby turned 1. Even though I wanted to curl up in the corner and pretend it wasn’t happening, we celebrated, of course.
One day, I was looking for ideas for her birthday and came upon this fabric on Pinterest. I showed Meghan, we fell in love and that’s where the inspiration for the entire party came from…
…this swatch of fabric.

I have a friend named Mindi who is super creative and extremely talented when it comes to anything pretty or crafty! She just recently posted some pictures of the birthday party she did for her daughter on Facebook. I asked if I could showcase her party on the good ole’ blog.
My littlest turned five this past weekend. Yep, my fifth child officially turned five at 5:55pm on Saturday. Moms always say they can’t believe how fast time goes when it comes to their children aging. That’s because it’s absolutely true!! Time flies and before you know it, your baby isn’t a baby anymore! Enough of me crying about it…. Let’s get on with the party!
As long as I have known Lara, she has always made a fun St. Patrick’s Day themed dinner for her family each year. I usually just put up decorations to celebrate and maybe buy a bag of See’s candies gold coins. This year we decided to team up: her food and my decorations.
Here is our table all put together! All ready for our kids to enjoy.

I had a friend of mine find out she was going to have a boy after having two girls! With her husband being an air traffic controller and their nursery being decorated in vintage airplanes, I thought an airplane-themed baby shower was fitting!!
The 1st Annual Ray Goodfellow Memorial Pinewood Derby Race
Let me give a little background on this next party…
The teenager in this picture is my father-in-law, Ray. He passed away when my husband, Ryan, was 18. Ryan and I started dating a few years later, so I never met Ray. It didn’t take me long, however to realize how special Ray was to Ryan, how much he was loved and missed by him. Wonderful moments we have shared through the years (our wedding day, Ryan’s graduation from the police academy, the birth of our babies) were always a little bittersweet knowing Ray wasn’t here to enjoy it with us.
Welcome to Carsland… or as we called it that day, Colesland! I found a picture online of the Carsland landscape and added the text with pictures of Cole throughout the year. I had it blown up at Staples and glued it to a piece of wood for the welcome sign to the party.
“To all who come to this happy place… Welcome” to a Disneyland themed baby shower!!
I threw a baby shower for a fellow Disney loving friend who adopted the cutest little boy.
A very merry unbirthday to you… to you!!
My girls all have summer birthdays. I had promised them a party but the summer kept us so busy that a party never happened. After feeling really guilty, I came up with a great idea! I’d throw an unbirthday party so it wouldn’t feel as weird being so late. I had all of their friends come with character inspired fashions (not a literal costume, just clothes that are reminiscent of a particular character),

And a new baby most certainly finds a way to steal your heart! This baby shower was for a young lady who I’ve known since she was a girl. She was having her first baby and the nursery was going to be vintage Winnie the Pooh. I thought that would make a great baby shower theme!
