FROZEN PARTY.




As if you guys aren't so sick of frozen already,
Or maybe you've heard it in the background on repeat for the last 7 days in your house,
Either way, I'm sure you guys are VERY familiar with frozen, a strong emphasis on the very
Anyways so the cute girl that does my hair asked me to put together a frozen party
for her sweet little girl + niece so within the next few weeks I'll be posting
some DIY's + details, so if your throwing a party stay tuned!

I looked all over for snow wands, holy moly, pricy little wands! 
So I grabbed some wood dowels, rhinestones, and picked up glitter snowflakes,
I found all these items at my local hobby lobby, I'm sure any craft store would carry them,
I painted the wood dowels white, adhered the snowflake + rhinstones & added a ribbon,
Super easy and the totaly cost for 12 wants was $10, that less than a dollar for each 
"Elsa" wand, perfect, affordable and much cuter than the faux metal ones!
I'll be sharing the DIY photobooth props next..

P.s. incase you're like me, and somehow missed this memo .....
CHRISTMAS IS NEXT THURSDAY...
just a friendly reminder, or quick panic moment.....

YW NEW BEGINNINGS.


How is possible that it's the time of year again?
Time for another New Beginnings, I went back and forth this year on a theme,
But than I saw this.. and it inspired it all, I'm taking a much simpler route this year,
A waffle party, and focus on our girls not "Waffling" on their personal progress & goals,
Making priorities rather than just putting it aside. Program to come in the near future.

After I pick a theme I like to make sure I have a general idea of how I can tie,
it all together and making sure that it all makes sense, while still be consistant so,
here's a little inspo. board on what I'm thinking on using for decorations,
You can see all the details over here on my pinterest board it includes
links to all the individual products if you choose to go this route.

Stay tune I'll be posting more details + ideas + a free printable invite for you to use!
Similar to this Up Themed YW new beginnings theme we did a couple years ago....

A BIRTHDAY BOX.



So, I'm going to take a mini break from all the holiday shanigans to discuss this
This birthday in a box is PERFECT for sending in the mail to loved ones, friends & family..
I put this little box together a month ago when I was working with Cindy, Gilit .. we were submitting our "Start Each Day Like It's Your Birthday" themed mini party submission for alt summit,
we weren't chosen but working with them was so fun!

So here's how I put together this birthday box... the photo breaks down the supplies,
Links are listed below to be directly linked to that particular product but have fun with it,
make it your own, mix and switch things up! These would also be fun as a guest party favor box,
place once at each place setting and have your guest take them home!

Here's how to make a birthday party in a box:


Mini Glitter Flags, Mini Jar of Sprinkles, Scallop Cupcake Liners, Paper Straws, Kraft Paper Box, Hooray Washi Tape, Bags of Confetti, YAY Glitter Topper, Mini Party Hat, Color Block Utensils , 
DIY Animal Toppers Spray and attach to a skewer (see photo)




Happy Future Birthday!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING,







Happy Thanksgiving! I wish you all a happy holiday, celebrating with loved ones,
I'm so thankful for so many incredible blessings in my life, how truly blessed i am,
I could make a list a mile long, and go on-and-on but the thing I'm most grateful for it,
my family, I'm so thankful for parents who support me, encourage me, love me, and always
push me to be better, and do better. I am so incredibly thankful for their unconditional love,
So thankful for siblings to guide me and are always there for me and
come running when I most need it, I've been so blessed with them.

I'm also thankful for my sweet husband who, continues to impress & surprise me everyday,
despite circumstances in his life, he has grown into such an amazing man, with a heart the size of Texas, I kid you not, his love for serving others is incredible, he's constantly teaching me
small humble life lessons, I am grateful for the man he's turned into, who would have
thought that 8 years ago ours lives would be like this, such a blessing.

I'm so grateful for so many other things in my life..
I'm sharing this fall/thanksgiving over at Mom's Best with Kate Aspen
