Project Tree Skirt- Check!

finished my tree skirt project today! ♥ Not a good photo but I'll post more later once our tree is all set up! :)

The only changes I made were using some organic muslin instead of linen, 3 inch strips instead of 2, & made it slightly bigger!

Caramel Apples! ♥ & baby girls first sweets!

My poor baby girl has never had a single candy, no lollipops, notta. But me & the hubby decided she very much so deserved to try some caramel apple today--it was quite precious how excited she was, lol!
We started it for her and that is her literally like in 'awe' that she gets to have some, lol!

Face Behind The Blog.


This. Is. Me. I look so thrilled, huh?! Lol. I almost cropped the camera out, but, I guess it looks more 'me' with the camera in my hand. :) Now, it is off to enjoy lunch with my family! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! ♥

Welcome Home, Daddy! ♥

We greeted him with some cuteness! ♥



Our Homemade Heart Shaped Pizzas! We made our pizza same as usual, but shaped them into adorable hearts to bake! & for a special touch...our local pizza place was kind enough to let me have a couple boxes so it looked cute & legit (after looking at me like a freak when I asked if I could buy some empty boxes, lol)! Then we went & grabbed a cute picnic tablecloth & we were good to go! ♥

Note: Our favorite dough & sauce recipes can be found over at Annie's Eats! I believe she adapted them from Cook's Illustrated...which always has amazing recipes! Find them HERE!

I told the girls...

that Daddy was coming home today. After squeezing and hugging me with her excitement, Ava insisted, we throw him a birthday party.

I said...okay. I mean, what else would we do?! Lol. Goofy girl. :)

So, here's my girlies, getting their table ready for what they called, Daddy's birthday party.
