Monday, April 24, 2017



^ attempted to make bird nest treats out of rice crispy! ^



I try to get family photos of us for every holiday and last year we took these and they turned out super cute! This year Ava wasnt having it haha and we only got 2 good ones! She wanted to get down and play so thats what she did! I thought I would include the ones where she is actually over it! haha #reallife

Our 6 year anniversary also fell on easter so that was nice too and I managed to get a quick pic with my man! I cant believe it's been half a dozen already! Many more adventures with you to come! I love you babe! 

 Hope everyone had a good Easter!

B A L A Y A G E + BEFORE & AFTER

OMG! kind of freaking out inside!! Ive been wanting to do this for so long! If you guys remember this post when I chopped my hair into a LOB (here) because I was a new mom and I needed a change ya know? ;) welllll I got that itch again and its been 2 years since I got my hair done and since high school when I had blonde in my hair. A little back story I use to do blonde highlights and side swept bangs cause I thought I was so cool haha! looking back at photos I'm like what was I thinking!? haha 

so when I seen balayage a few years ago I said once my hair grows out to where I want it I'm going to get it! So i bit the bullet and went ahead and pampered myself! I was super scared to do it since I haven't had any blonde in my hair in 10 years! & since I was reallllly dark before I didnt think my hair would lift at all the first time I thought I would have a slight change and wouldn't really be able to notice but I was soooo wrong!! You guys! if your in the central Michigan area go to The Avenue & request Karly and tell her I sent you! 

seriously her work is amazing shes so talented and Is amazing at what she does! Another concern I had was that my hair would be dry and straw like since I was adding blonde. Karly gave me a hair treatment to make sure my hair was soooo soft! seriously soooo soft! and NO breakage at all. I was so impressed and I'm sooo happy with how it turned out seriously its exctly what I wanted I showed her these pics 1//2//3// and they looked just like the pic! I do love the more cool tones and ashy tones so I'm going back to her in a month to lighten it up a little more since its a little warmer but seriously it looks so good and it feels so good! not to mention the pamper session was like the best part to my mom week I had and I haven't done that In a long time so it was long over due and much needed!

So I'm sitting here with the heat on and fuzzy socks, coffee in hand because *clears throat* it snowed! I know!? like come on! where is spring! Ive been feeling some major fixer upper inspiration! Ive been on a binge watching JoJo work her magic and transform rooms! Also since the weather here was nice for about a day then back to snow today?! so overrrr it! Im ready for spring and with spring comes spring cleaning. 

At least for me it does. I love having all the windows open a clean scented candle burning I love the Pf candle co. packaging and have yet to buy one but I'm currently burning this honeysuckle jasmine candle I got from walmart and it smells seriously so good! and it was under $5! I put together a little collage of inspiration for our kitchen! since we are renting I always want to swap out art work or hang up new things and its a shame we cant paint! 

I love the white tones with wood accents and pops of copper! funny thing I have that bread pan above in a set of 3 one says tea, sugar,bread and its so cute its an off white though more of a cream so I want to re purpose that to something like the one above I love those tea towels too and the E A T sign! ahhh! ok Im done haha hopefully this post gave you some major inspiration and ideas!

A Q U A R I U M + 2nd Birthday Planning

Tuesday, April 4, 2017




Saturday we took Ava to the Aquarium for the first time at the great lakes crossing mall. She had so much fun I highly recommend it if your in the area. Her face lit up when she seen the fishes or as she says "phhhishhies " haha. She dint know what to expect and Honestly I was surprised how good she did! 

With her second birthday is coming up and she is at the age of throwing fits here and there or when she is super tired she doesn't want to do much which I cant blame her, so I was so happy everything went smoothly and she had a blast! The sting rays were her favorite. We also had a book that we had to stamp and she got  a prize at the end so she loved helping me stamp her book & she ended up getting a necklace that says sea life. She has to have it on everyday while she is playing and its the cutest! You guys I have so much to plan for and so much to get ready for birthday wise! I feel like I'm drowning! I have the theme so thats a good start right?! haha. April is going to be a busy month for us party planning and festivities!
