Hey Dad!


I’m so thankful to have my loving father in my life.

He’s always there for me and more than I could ask for.

Thank You Dad, xoxo!

& Happy Father’s Day to all the pops out there.

April showers bring May flowers

I wish we were getting rain and also that I had a blooming garden full of gorgeous flowers….instead I crafted up a little “Cinco de Mayo” inspired flower garland to hang above our doorway. These are the fake kind that need zero care and live forever…the garland makes me smile & crave a chilled Mexican Martini….mmmmmm!

Salt or No Salt?

First, gather your supplies….a variety of colorful silk flowers, hot glue gun, spool of colorful cord & wire cutters

Take the flowers off of the stems…..using the wire cutters, cut off the plastic edge that held the flower onto the stem so that you have a flatter surface to add the glue, begin randomly gluing the flowers in bunches of 3 onto the cord…..glue as many as you like until the garland is the length that you want

Then find a place to hang your festive garland!  I chose our outside doorway,

Poor Dave has to duck under it to avoid knocking it down :/

the garland was a bit bare and I was out of flowers so I added a strand of hot pink streamer!

Hope you have a festive Cinco de Mayo!

Blog Brag

Just a quick must brag on my sister-in-law, Heather, she is so very talented in many ways.

She sent pics of these adorable cupcakes that she made for her oldest son’s school carnival.

So creative, don’t you just love them?

Trust me, there will be more blog bragging on her, I can guarantee 🙂
