Throw Pillow Make Over.

A few months ago after stalking I finally purchase the duvet set I wanted. It was on sale with an extra 15% off and then I found a 5.00 off online coupon code and saved $25.00 in total. Go me. Then I was on a hunt for throw pillows. Everyone that I loved was over $25.00 each and honestly I just can't bring myself to spend that much on throw pillows when I'm on a tight budget. So I figure I would just make my own. Now I've seen so many tutorial and pins on Pinterest with the no sew method but I decided to actually not do all that work with cutting fabric etc.

A Very Hungry Caterpillar 1st Birthday Party

On Saturday, June 13th we had Ayden's 1st Birthday Party.  With all the planning and DIY projects it surely went by way to fast. Although I had a few no shows and a lot of people that were not able to come we still had a nice turn out. The kids had a great time and that's all that matter.

My Baby turns ONE!

June 10th 2014 we welcomed Ayden into the World. I just can't believe how fast a year has gone by. He is such a little firecracker who is full of energy. He definitely keeps us on our toes. So as today was approaching I have just been full of emotion. Not just because he turns ONE but because he is my last baby. My oldest will be 6 and I can remember like it was yesterday when he turned ONE.  They grow up so fast. So we like to enjoy them as much by doing lots of family activities. Our family is truly blessed and we just love him so much.

So even though we have a big party planned for the weekend it is our tradition to still celebrate with cake and fun. I also always do a surprise birthday room decor.  My mom use to do it for my sisters and I so when I become a mom it was my duty to do those traditions with my children. We spent the morning and early afternoon at Sesame Place in PA and then came home to celebrate with cake. It was an amazing day for us. Hope you enjoy the pics of Ayden's 1st Birthday and please check back for his Birthday Party blog with lots of DIY projects.

Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower!

This past weekend I attended Jackie's Bridal Shower along with my mom and sister. It was held at the Knob Hill Golf and Country Club in NJ. The venue was perfect and the theme was done absolutely perfect. On the invitation it instructed us to dress in black attire for the event. So everyone looked elegant and fashionable in there black attire. I mean hey we needed to be as fabulous as Audrey Hepburn.

We enjoyed ourselves with the sit down luncheon and some yummy Mimosa and Sangria. The deserts were tasty and some too cute to even eat. And what's a party without a photo booth. Lol we definitely enjoyed taking pictures in the photo both. 

The beautiful Bride to Be was overwhelmed with joy and how beautiful everything turned out. She loved everything about it and enjoyed herself with family and friends. Congrats Jackie!!
