Cat Garland

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Although it's the end of September, did I ever mention how much I love this month? 
Because I really do! Birthdays, Anniversaries, and soon my sisters sweet little babe just joined our little family on Sunday! Hooray! But since I have a feeling October will pass me by before I can even think I'm getting started a little early, and no better way to start it off than to make this cute little black cat garland for Halloween! I'm sharing the DIY over at mom's best + a printable! 

And I'll be sharing a little cat themed party I'll be throwing for my sweetest little nieces!  
So stay tuned & hop on over to Mom's Best to download this babe + get your crafting on!

Poodle Sugar Cookies.

Thursday, September 10, 2015


Although poodle cookies may sound absolutely ridiculous, they are so cute.. 
I'm sharing this recipe over at Mom's Best with some helpful tips that make frosting & mixing color so much easier! No need to buy custom colors, it's so not worth the $5 for the tiny jar of coloring... that's why I just pick up the regular 'old McCormicks food coloring + the neon version of it. These are so reasonably priced + when you mix them, the possibilities are endless. 

If you're a sugar cookie newbie - head over to mom's best to get the full recipe + how to on these, don't forget outline first than "flood" or frost, let dry, than add any details! Happy poodle dog making, this totally inspires me for a dog themed party! How cute would that be? I'm already envisioning!

Favorite baby bows + hats.

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Although there seems to be a MILLION, okay maybe not quite that much, baby bows + hats out there, I rounded up a list of my very favorite baby bows! Also Peanut Planner, has this fabulous website where you can just click the link and go directly to the website + click the little plus button and it tells you how much the product is! I mean really, how great is that? I had when I see a cute round up than I click the link just to find out that product is like $75 for a blanket... life made EASY, just click the + button to be linked + get the down low on the prices!

Since our sweet little babe will be a fall baby, I do want to make sure her little head is nice and warm when we're out and about, or if we're just hanging out inside, which might happen more than not, she can be styling in a little headband. Rumor has it, if you start them young, by that I mean little babes, with headbands, they'll keep them on. Wish me luck, she'll hate them or love them, but I'm hoping for the later part. These bows are chic, stylish, and best of all affordable! Each one under $15, cha-ching! Happy baby hat + bow shopping!

Baby Bash!

Tuesday, September 1, 2015


This weekend we just got done throwing a baby bash! 
A shower for my sister & I's little babys on the way, seriously I couldn't have imagined a better shower with one of my favorite people! This baby bash is over at Mom's Best, you can see & read all the details over there. We had it outside in my mama's backyard/driveaway with patio lights, boxes of yummy foods, drinks + the perfect atmosphere. We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives who love our little ones as much as us. I went home with the fullest heart this weekend, so grateful for these babies on the way, the journey to motherhood, & the people who love us.
