Happy Cinco de Mayo! Who else is celebrating with margaritas today?! Although I’m a lover of traditional margs (frozen and on the rocks) sometimes it’s nice to switch things up a bit, so I infused mine with Thatcher’s Organic Cucumber Liqueur and turned them into little popsicles for something a bit different!
Later this month we’ll be celebrating my sweet M as she turns 4 years old! Our party theme as you may have already seen, is “Spring Kitten” and will include plenty of floral and kitty decor in fitting spring pastels.
In April, we did a quick shoot for M’s 4 year photos and birthday invites! This has become somewhat of a tradition, as I’ve been photographing and creating my daughter’s party invitations since they were born. It’s something that I truly look forward to as each year comes and it’s also fun to look back and compare and see how much they’ve grown.
Hello weekend. Hello May (almost). April blew by, and I have to say, I’m very much looking forward to all that the new month has in store. There’s plenty to celebrate, including Mother’s Day on May 8th, so I’m kicking off the last weekend of April, with a super easy 3 ingredient mimosa that you can feel good about serving to your Mom next Sunday!
You guys, I feel like I say this as each year passes but it’s so hard for me to believe that my youngest is turning 4 soon. More like, within a few weeks soon. I’m a bit behind on the planning this year due to the construction of our home and just dealing with life and momma/work duties…you know how it goes, but I just finally finished up the invitations and I’ll be mailing them off soon, so at least that’s a start!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’m back with another sweet feature, that’s fitting for all my fashionistas! Handbags and Chanel in sugar cookie form, designed to perfection by the fabulous OCD_Obsessive_Cookie_Designer.
These quilted purse cookies that she created are decorated in the prettiest shades of blue royal icing, and inspired by MZ Wallace handbags, which I totally need to own now.
Every year as spring arrives my hubby and I take our girls to see the tulips in bloom in Skagit Valley. We’ve been doing this since my oldest turned 1 year old and it’s become one of those traditions that we look forward to every year. I’m all about traditions and I love being able to create special memories and have bonding time with my girls. Although they’re both loving the tulips now, I’m sure at some point as they grow older, they might roll their eyes at the idea of kneeling down and taking photos in fields of blooming flowers…so I’ll take advantage while they’re young and while I can still get away with it.
It’s been a while since I’ve given you guys an update on our new home in progress, so here’s a little behind the scenes look for you.
The framing is finally complete, the roof and all windows are in and the electrical and plumbing is nearing completion (hooray!) The plumbing has gone a bit slower than anticipated, but fortunately May will be here shortly, which means we should be ready for radiant floors and drywall very soon.
I think by now, almost all of us are familiar with the terms, “yes way rosé” and “rosé all day.” Being that I love to entertain, they have both become very much used quotes and hashtags for sharing my rosé beverage posts over on instagram and…they just so happen to describe our beverage plans for Easter Sunday! We love rosé in my house! It’s a spring time must, with a crisp fruity freshness perfect for any gathering. And since I have this thing with pink I especially love its pretty blush hue. Ok I think you get the idea! Now let’s give our easter eggs a quick and easy rosé makeover.
