As a thank you to all my dear readers, I designed these Fall themed place cards/food label cards that you can print out for FREE and use on your Thanksgiving table!

Thanks for coming along with me on my event planning journey! I hope you enjoy the freebie and if you're cooking, I'm putting good vibes out there that everything finishes at the same time! :) Isn't that always the goal?

Father's Day Freebie!

Hello all! Hope you're having a great day! :)

I'm popping in to offer you a Father's Day free download! This free collection includes gift tags, a banner, notecard and Best Dad Award. Just download each item you want, print and cut out.

You can download the printables pictured by clicking the following links:

  1. Fathers Day Banner
  2. Fathers Day Gift Tags
  3. Fathers Day Note Cards
  4. Best Dad Award

I recommend printing on heavy card stock. :) Regular printer paper will be too flimsy.

This is the Best Dad banner that is included:

There are 2 pattern options for the Father's Day gift tags. You can choose between argyle and stripes.

Same goes for the Father's Day note cards and Best Dad award. You can select either stripes or argyle.

This is the whole set! Next week I'll show how to prepare everything once printed if you want to check back for that. :)

I hope the dads in your life have an amazing Father's Day! And if you're a father, Happy Father's Day to you!

Halloween

I have so much to share with you all! James and I have worked on some house projects that I can't wait to photograph and post about, but lately we have been busy with work/church/life that we haven't gotten a chance.

However, I did want to pop in and share what I'm up to at work today!

After work today my plans are to make dinner, hang out with James and give out candy to cute trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. Oh, and put on Hocus Pocus.

That's all I got for now. Ninja-ing is exhausting. Catch you guys later.

Mother's Day Preparations

Long time, no talk! April was a crazy month for me with work and lots of sick days, unfortunately. Even with all that, James and I managed to get a lot accomplished and I'm looking forward to sharing all our updates with you all. :)

For now, we are super excited about hosting a Mother's Day Brunch at our home this Sunday to celebrate our amazing moms. :) We hosted a similar brunch last year and thought it would be great to do again so that our moms don't have to lift a finger. We want them to come and just relax and enjoy the day together!

This year I started by sending out this invitation:

I made the invitation on punchbowl.com and then texted it to our family members.

The color scheme I'm using is hot pink, orange, yellow and lime green so I was excited about the invitation since it uses similar colors.

The menu we're planning is:

  • Frittata
  • Hashbrowns
  • Bacon
  • Waffles
  • Fresh Fruit
  • Cheese Board
  • Pink Lemonade
  • Coffee
  • Cake

I'm excited to get cooking! But first, I have so many plans for decor. I don't have anything to show you yet, but I'll be so excited to share it next week after the brunch!

We've been out working in the yard to get it looking nice for everyone to come over and we have been creating some DIY outdoor games for our nieces and nephew to play with (and the adults too, of course) when they come over for the brunch.

Here's one improvement I've made in the yard! This is our front flower bed:

I was already thrilled because we had planted those gerber daisies and hostas last year and they came back and are looking so great! However, I wanted to spruce things up a bit so we bought these stones from Home Depot called Rumble Stone. I got rid of the old brick, which I had only used because it was left over after the house was built. The brick was frustrating because the weeds would grow up through the holes and were hard to get rid of. Sometimes, free is not the best solution. :) I put down the Rumble Stone and then we added mulch.

So much better! I love the fresh, clean look!

In other news I went to Target last night to buy sparkling water and this is how we left:

You know how it is, right? :-S
