Last Day Of School!

Today is such a bittersweet day for me.
I’m really excited for summer, but my babies need to STOP GROWING!
But most of all, I’m super nervous because we have decided we’re going to homeschool this next school year!
So pray for me, PLEASE!
Here’s a picture of my sweet girls we took on our way out this morning ❤

A couple days ago, I went to Pinterest to find a few little activities to do this summer.
After I compiled a little list

  • Swimming at night with glowsticks
  • Painting with bubble wrap around your feet
  • S’mores!
  • Water gun fights
  • Water balloon baseball
  • Bubbles of course!
  • Making t-shirts with sand paper and crayons
  • Gummy worm and Sprite popsicles

I then ran out to Target, grabbed a blue bin and the things I need for these actives plus a new pair of sandals for each kid, jump ropes, some extra chalk cause we’re running out and ribbon dance streamers. (I also bought them a new board game and a roll of paper for the painting that I forgot to put in the bin!)
Then I made a banner with permanent markers and a roll of paper and hung with streamers and balloons in the doorway!
This was waiting for them at the front door after school! 😀


Nothing makes me more happy than making these two little people happy!

Hope every one of you has an amazing summer this year!


Princess Belle Party – Cambria’s 9th Birthday

Cambria is OBSESSED with Belle, her favorite Disney princess.
I browsed Pinterest for inspo and away I went on DIY projects.

I decided to hire a girl who does characters, she did all the activities so my part was easy peasy!

My loot from Hobby Lobby for a few of my projects.



My mom got me these white mugs from the 99 cent store and I used permanent markers to draw Chip on them to give away as party favors which they filled with goodies from the table before they left. These came out surprisingly adorable!

I bought the milk bottles from HERE and just hot glued the roses on them


Cory Made her invitation and the picture that went on the table for me.
(The morning of her party, Cory watched Beauty and the Beast with the girls, and then informed me that ‘mansion’ is supposed to say ‘castle’… That’s what I get for just copying something on Pinterest)


For the table I made candy coated oreos from THIS MOLD, and also caramel filled candy coated pretzels, and then a co-worker of my moms made us the cake!


For the balloons, I blew them up with helium, spread some Mod Podge where I wanted the confetti and pushed handfuls of confetti on them over a big bowl.


Before the party started, Aunt Leslie stopped by to give Cambria a present.
She got a 2 person tent (for indoors only) and they both got kites 🙂

When Princess Belle pulled up, the girls were way too excited to wait and ran out to meet her at the car! Haha!
Unfortunately, buy the time I had realized they were all out there, it was too late to take a picture. So cute though!

Princess Belle first read everyone a story
Then she crowned Cambria a princess and face painted all the little girls’ faces.

Anyone could have guessed that she’d get a unicorn!

And then she got a cat (because deciding between the two is just too hard) on her arm.
Gwennie wanted to be Hello Kitty 🙂


After face painting Belle played games and danced with the girls.
Cambria just loved her! This picture makes every penny I spent so worth it!
She sang Happy Birthday to Cambria and then autographed pictures that she brought for all the girls.

I’m not even gonna lie, I was pretty stoked to take a picture with Belle too 😉

And then she left 😥 and we had cake and opened presents.

The girls spent that night camping in the living room in their new tent,
and decided this was ‘the best present EVER’
