Happy Halloween Decorating!

So this sweet little site called Pinterest has sparked my interest;) and here are some things I've been inspired to do...Starting with my entryway...
The letters are prints I purchased from   They have CUTE stuff on there-some of it is even free!!  Speaking of FREE...the branches were!  They were lonely, laying on the grounds of the neighborhood park across the street so I spray painted them (along with my hands;) and added them to some black stones and small vases I had purchased from Dollar Tree. 

Here is a cute little witch we found in our tree!
Happy Halloween from our "Pumpkin Patch" to yours!

Baby Shower

My good friend, Ginger, and I had a blast decorating for a "all things PINK" baby girl shower!!!!
The ornaments were glitterfied with sparkly pink and tied with pink bows.

For the food, we had pink and brownie bites, chicken salad sandwiches, pink cream cheese pizza cookies, pink cupcakes, pink treats, etc.

I made a paper bunting banner that said "It's A Girl!"

This table bouquet was made with cupcake liners, pins, a styrofoam ball, a candle stick, and ribbon!  EASY!
 And since I kinda have a thing for birds, we incorporated that into our decor;)

Ginger made some cool milk bottles with vinyl "P" monogrammed on it for the baby girl's name-to-be.

She filled them with strawberry lemonade and cute pink and white striped paper straws.
It was a fun night!!!

My Next Project...

This wreath is made of book paper, styrofoam, and hot glue.  It sounds pretty easy, but I will let you know!  Anything I can do from the comfort of my couch and is THIS cute, I will greet with open arms...
Will keep ya posted;)

Dollar Tree Craft

These cute little tiers are a new project I can see in my future (to be done on Wednesday when kids are allll in school;).  The BEST thing about these is you can find all of the materials (minus the Spray Paint) at The Dollar Tree!!!  So it costs about $6!
You can find more at

But keep in mind - these are NOT FOOD if you decide to display food on them, be sure to put down cupcake liners for cupcakes and doilies for other goodies.  I was also thinking...jewelery storage?  A cute place for keys and spare change to spruce up your kitchen...
Love my kids, but, I can't wait for Wednesday:)

Heavenly Cupcakes

I think I found a new favorite!  We had a YW recipe activity.  We were to bring 3 favorite FHE recipes and this was one of mine...(and I didn't know this was a fave until I made it).
With chocolate and peanut butter, how can you go wrong?  Notice the reese's peanut butter cup in the middle!

Here's the recipe:

Feel free to print this out....and here is the frosting (really yum!):


disclaimer: the photo is not mine...unfortunately they are gone and there is no proof I ever made these, except for my evergrowing stomach.  I blame it on my pregnancy, but I am sure it's a little of the cupcakes too;)

We are learning quickly how much fun it is to watch the boys play in sports.  Brock is in Football and had his first game last Saturday.  I was taken back when we walked to the bleachers to see my lil boy is playing on a high school football field...that's a lot of area to run!
Ty got to help coach and is watching Brock from the sideline...

They won 16-9 - GO LIONS!
Go #10!
Cutest little cheerleaders!

Then Trey had a soccer game right after (and can I just say that a 95 degree day in the south feels like 115 with all that humidity?!).  Trey's team won too (6-zip) Go Hammerheads!!!
And go cutest #4 there ever was!!
Seriously is there anything cuter than 4 year olds playing soccer?
