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.
DIY Height Chart
Okay I might have tried to lure you here with my cute baby! haha
No but really, the other day I was freaking out because I’m going to have a teenager this year. Wait a second, how did this happen? I always wanted a height chart to keep those memories of their growth and now I’m here with an almost teenager! Eeek! I thought, whoa, I gotta get one before the kid starts shooting up-because that hasn’t happened yet.
Dollar Store Wreath Challenge: Valentine’s Day Edition
I needed a Valentine’s Wreath. Yes, needed. So I decided to challenge myself and try to make a Dollar Store wreath. We’ve seen it done before, I could do it-right? Well turns out my Dollar Store has a whole lot of nothing!! I did manage to grab a few things. I also hit up the Target Dollar Spot for a few more things. The mission: to make it cheap!

Meet Annie the Airstream!
Proud owners of an Airstream!! A couple years ago, I started having this obsession with Airstreams. I saw them everywhere and constantly looked up ones for sale on Craigslist. I image-searched on Google for ways others had fixed theirs up. I finally talked my husband into seriously looking. We looked at a few before we found ours! (Here are our update posts: here and here.)
Disney’s Carsland Birthday Party
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.
Disneyland Freebies & Tips
Both Lara and I love Disneyland!! It’s one of the things that bonded us as friends from the beginning. That, and the fact that both of our husbands love to poke fun of our love for all things Disney. We’ve actually visited Disneyland a few times together.
