I feel like EVERY holiday involves lots and lots and LOTS of candy and sweets. Now don't get me wrong I love sweets but when it comes to the kiddos I would rather them have some cute gifts than a sugar rush. So I decided to make a NON candy gift for Rowen for St. Patrick's day. I don't think I have ever given a st. Patrick's day gift ha ha. This has mostly been a "wear green" holiday for me but while at the dollar store I found so many cute rainbow colored things I thought, well why not?
Gold Spray Paint
Bucket (I got mine at the dollar section at target)
rainbow colored NON candy gifts
Here are all the colorful gifts I put in the bucket. I found them all at the dollar store except the colorfed fishy crackers, those I found at target.
How perfect are those giant crayons wrapped in "green" paper? How St. Patty's day is that?
Lastly cut and tape the little rainbow onto the bucket handle

Im excited to give this to Rowen! I know he will be super into those bouncy balls and the stickers will get put to the side and probably never touched ha ha but we will see.

It's Friday! I LOVE the weekends, even if it is supposed to pour buckets the whole time. So it looks like our weekend is going to be pretty relaxed and involve a LOT of indoor time, which means there will be time to catch up on some home projects.
I found some super cute and easy DIY's that I am dying to try.

My boy is 3!! I can't believe it... how did this happen so quickly? I mean, I know all parents say it and you know why? because its true! They just grow up too fast.
I can't express how much love I have for that little boy, he brings me so much happiness. He makes my life something special and I thank my lucky stars he is mine!
It was so much fun to have all his little buddies come and celebrate his special day with him. He got to run around, play and eat cookies and cake all day.... lets just say it was the best day ever.
Along with cars, trains, garbage trucks and monster trucks he LOVES construction machines. So I thought he would love a construction themed birthday party! I didn't want to go over the top with construction decor but wanted a cute simple party with a little construction theme thrown in there.
I made his invitation in photoshop and I really loved how it turned out.
(Because this is the internet I did delete my phone number and the location we had the party at ha ha those are the huge blank spaces on the invite)
I bought some cardboard bricks and blowup hammers for the kids to play with.
The blowup hammers doubled as party favors ;)
ha ha my attempt to get a picture of all the kiddos...you can tell it was a success
the picture on the left is his face after I said "Rowen smile!" And the picture on the right is a happy boy with a cookie. Mom can't get him to smile but a cookie....well a cookie always will.
This family of mine is pretty great. Yep PRETTY great!

I made these for Rowe's party a few weeks ago. They were incredibly easy and add a little color to any occasion, and anyone who knows me knows I appreciate the little things.
Ha ha, and yes, that involves colorful cutlery.
Wooden forks (spoons, knives...whatever!)
It takes 4 VERY simple steps.
Cut the top of the tape. I like diagonal best but you can do a cute V shape.
Tape the length of the fork. The washi tape is the perfect thickness to fit the fork.
cut the end in a semi circle
fold over and your done!
