Looking for a cute way to serve up snacks during the Super Bowl? It can’t get easier (or cheaper) than using old-school paper lunch bags! All you need to do is grab a paint brush and some white paint and in 60 seconds you can transform the ordinary bags into cute football treat bags!
Fill them with popcorn, chips, peanuts, trail mix, or pretzels. Your snack just got an upgrade! (more…)
Add a little football flair to your Super Bowl with this simple DIY. These football mason jars are easy enough the kiddos can make them (which sounds like a touch down to me!). All you need are mason jars and white tape.
The trick is to fill your mason jars with a dark brown beverage. This could be any dark soda or root beer. Also, iced tea works well. Or, if you want to make these for the grown ups, try a dark beer. (more…)
Our holiday cards have arrived and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! Today, I’m sharing a few tips for sending holiday cards (and reminding you to enter to win a $250 gift card to Minted for your own cards)!
The quality from Minted is stellar. Really. Now that I have cards in-hand, I’m ready to send them out. Here are a couple tips I have for you about sending out cards. (more…)
Thanksgiving is officially over so we can all start thinking about Christmas –hooray for Christmas cheer! One of the first things I like to do is send our our family holiday Christmas cards. It helps me feel like the holiday season is underway and I get a great sense of accomplishment getting the cards in the mail early. (Great news, you can enter to win your own Minted holiday cards!)
I just love the gold foil designs Minted offers and had to choose a design with it this year. This is our family Christmas Card, I just love it!
I’m not sure how it happened but Halloween is right around the corner (EEEEEKKKK!). Is it just me just me, or does it seems like the year is just rolling along at top speed. Crazy! Well, if you find yourself needed to make halloween treats in the next few weeks, these ghosts cupcakes are simple and super fun!
Want to know a little secret I have on keeping things simple? I don’t always make my own cupcakes (insert horror screech here, right?). In fact, I just go to my local grocery store bakery and ask them to sell me un-iced cupcakes. It’s so easy (you can totally do this for cake layers too!). Then I get to skip the baking and have fun with the decorating. Just keepin’ it real…. and simple. ;) (more…)
Whether you’re looking for some romantic wedding inspiration, scouting Temecula wedding venues, or just simply love looking at pretty pictures, this post is for you.
Remember that romantic bridal shower I hosted? Well, here was the bride on her big day! I have been telling you I’m going to post this wedding since 2012. THREE years later and I’m finally sharing these photos. Why has it taken me so long? Honestly because there were just sooooo many gorgeous photos I felt overwhelmed and couldn’t decide which to share! Problems, I know.
In fact, I procrastinated so long that this darling couple (who also happen to by my brother and sister-in-law!) have been married for three years, and I’ve already posted about their baby shower (GAWH) and my niece will be ONE next month. Wow, we’re all out of order over here. Sooooo without much more, I’ll jump into the pics (because that’s what you really want to see)!
We made these DIY rustic signs that led guests to the venue which was a private estate winery in Temecula, CA. If you’re looking for Temecula wedding venues, there are just so many great ones to choose from. Take a day (or two) and visit/experience them all! My handy husband cut the signs and I stained them and then painted on the names. (more…)
