monster cookie ice cream is my fave

June 3, 2014

Okay so it’s not officially summer but the weather has been in the eighties, frozen treats have been aplenty and I’ve even braved the pool in all of my 8-months-pregnant glory. So I’m declaring it summer on you are my fave starting today with a deconstructed ice cream flavor series – a weekly concoction for the duration of this glorious season.

a birthday countdown is my fave

May 28, 2014

I love birthdays and I love advent calendars so it really only made sense to combine the two.


To make your own birthday countdown you’ll need:
birthday advent download
craft matchboxes
– scissors
– double sided tape

All you have to do is print, cut, and adhere the labels to the top of the matchboxes. Then fill with mini prizes such as confetti, balloons, birthday candles, and candy.

Everybody loves getting attention on their birthday (my dad excluded), give them fifteen days of it.
