Follow Friday!

I have a routine every morning when I get to work.

Turn on my computer

Get on Gmail

Turn on I heart Radio

Login in to my work site.

After all the work formalities, I read the same blogs that I read everyday. I thought I would share them so you all can follow them as well!

I have been friends with Brianna since middle school! We have grown up together and I talked her into blogging and I enjoy reading her blog.

Bri and I

Brianna and her husband Judd go on some of the coolest trips. If you need help planning or want to see where they have been please visit her blog! She has some great tips for traveling! The Adventures of the Steele Family

I really look forward to reading Little Baby Garvin. Jessica is so fun and crafty. Her 3 girls are just adorable! Follow Little Baby Garvin for all things crafts and kids!

Mommas Gone City post the best pictures of her adorable 4 kids. I started following her after her #TheoandBeau took off! Now her youngest, Evvie takes naps with Theo and it is equally as cute!

Every morning I can’t wait to read Mix and Match Mama. Shay Shull is the sister of former bachelor, Sean Lowe. Her blog is so fun. She has the cutest kids, the best recipes and giveaways! I ALWAYS love her “favorite” things. Definitely check her out if you have fertility issues, adoption questions or need ideas for dinner! (She has two cookbooks out now!

My newest blog I follow is one of M&MM best friends! I am so glad I started following Momfessionals. Andrea is so amazing. She is a teacher and has 3 kids. She may have the best craft ideas for your little ones.

Please check out all these blogs. They are all amazing and I cant make it through a morning without checking them all out!

 

 

I’m Back

It has been two years since my last post. I figured it would be a perfect time to come back.

My last post was 2 years ago this March. It was Cortney’s bridal shower in preparation for her March 22nd wedding. This is the perfect time to pick back up because this past Sunday I threw her her 1st baby shower! Yes, almost 2 years after her wedding here I am throwing her a baby shower. Baby M is due 2.25.2016! Its a boy and I can’t wait.

I will post pictures from the shower tomorrow but here is the link to my pinterest board where I took most my ideas from!

Oh, and I bought a house. Quickly learning what “being a homeowner” really means! Closed on this beauty 5.1.2014.

Cortneys Bridal Shower

I threw Cortney a bridal shower today!

We live in Ohio and what do you know there was a massive snow storm that came through. Not everyone was able to make it to the shower but we still had a nice turn out.

I wanted to share what we did for it!

Here is my pinterest page. I used pinterest for my inspiration for everything. Check under my “Cortney’s Bridal Shower Board”.

Got this idea from Pinterest and figured we could do it ourselves instead of ordering it. And it came out perfect! How yummy.

We choose strawberry cupcakes with a strawberry icing. I will upload that recipe asap! We also just bought a black cardboard piece to keep them on.

We played two games. Very simple yet fun for all! The “He Said/She Said” game was a downloadable link from Pinterest!

For the winners of the game I ordered very cute lip balms from gcd spa.

Finally, for the party favor we choose to make Carmel Popcorn. My Mom found these adorable Chinese boxes on clearance at Target and we knew they would be perfect!

It’s been awhile….

TKG.

It has been a long time since I have written anything!

I am currently planning my best friends Bachelorette Party and Bridal Shower! Being the MOH is a lot of work. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I can not wait to share pictures and ideas that I used for both parties!

I am a very strong supporter of Childhood Cancer awareness and Maya Thompson is getting ready to run a marathon (without training because she is a badass) all while raising money for The Ronan Thompson Foundation. She is a little under $5000 short of her goal with only 12 days left! $10 is a minimum donation and ANY amount helps. Thank you advance.

I will try to keep up a little more!

Again, send me your ideas for a bachelorette party and/or bridal shower! 🙂
