We are getting dec’d out in our home for 4th of July… sort of. I’ve always been a slacker at decorations during the holidays, not because I don’t want them. I blame the hubby, and the fact that sometimes I like to spend money on other things that last all year long. But, as we get further into our marriage, I hope to have a bazillion decorations set up for every holiday.
But, this banner is helping our home look more festive, and it’s perfect for the upcoming Olympics this August! You can keep this baby up for another month!
I can’t believe how fast June is going, and soon enough, it’ll be 4th of July weekend! I love this time of year – longer days, fireworks, BBQs. The only thing I don’t love about this time of year, at least while being pregnant, is the heat! So far, our Summer in Washington hasn’t been a bad one. We’ve only had a few unbearable days, and now I’m a little anxious to see how hot next month will be.
Since we’re about 2 weeks away from the big holiday weekend, you might be thinking about throwing a 4th of July party. I’ve got you covered! Print out these Fourth of July Invitations, fill out the info and send them on their way. You’re friends will be excited about your 4th of July celebration once they see these prints in their mailbox!
I’m back! For now that is, until (special announcement) baby #3 makes her debut sometime next month! It has been busy these past few months. I decided to go back to work full time in February, and between taking care of my family and attempting to get ready for baby #3, I haven’t been able to keep up with blogging. Last Friday was my last day of work, and I’m happy to be back to blogging and being home with my crazy, but adorable kids!
With that being said, here is today’s printable! I’m sharing these fun and colorful note cards! If you are pressed for time, or can’t make it to the store and need to let someone know you’re thinking about them, these are easy to print out on the fly, or save them for when you really need it most. Your friends and family will appreciate the cute and colorful gesture! 🙂
We aren’t very big into celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in our house, but as a kid, I’ve always hated the idea of getting pinched if I didn’t wear green. Green also wasn’t (and still isn’t) my favorite color so I usually had nothing in my closet for St. Patty’s day. Fortunately for my kids, they are big Oakland A’s fans and they have no problem sporting their green and gold pride. With that being said, I still thought it would be fun to give them a little goodie bag of knick knacks to keep them pinch proof on this upcoming green holiday, and I’m sure you’re kids (or friends) will love getting this St. Patrick’s Day Survival kit too!
It’s the easiest thing to put together. Just round up some St. Patrick’s Day goodies from the Dollar store, or Target’s $1-$3 spot. Could be anything from a green necklace, temporary tattoos, stickers, buttons, nail polish, socks, etc. Stick them inside a Party bag (I used 4in x 9.5in / 10cm x24cm), and seal them up with these St. Patrick’s Day Survival Kit. Your kids and friends are going to love getting this, especially if they completely forgot to wear green on St. Patty’s Day!
JD has been so into Star Wars lately, I thought for sure he was going to want Star Wars themed Valentine’s cards. Glad I didn’t start making any, because when I asked him what he wanted to give his friends for Valentine’s Day, he said he wanted to give away super hero cards! I saw so many cute Super Hero ideas, and I loved the one with the sucker dressed as a super hero, I just knew I wasn’t going to have a lot of time to put that one together. I was rattling my brain for a candy that would fit with a Super Hero card, and the one that kept coming back to my mind were Pop Rocks! I loved those as a kid, and thought it would be they’d be a perfect pair!
The best part about Pop Rocks is that they’re super cheap at the Dollar Store – $1 for a 3 pack! Perfect!! It is seriously the easiest thing to put together. All you need is…
Print out your super Hero Valentine’s Day printables, and staple one on top of each Pop Rock packet and you are done! Simple as that, and they are quick to make. I cannot wait for him to pass these out to his friends!
With just over a week away from Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d put together a roundup post with some of my Valentine’s Day printables… just in case you were still looking for decorations for your home, party or in need of some Valentine’s cards to pass out.

How fun is this little Valentine’s gift? This is one of the easiest and quickest gifts to put together, and it still looks good enough to eat! 🙂 I saw these candy roses at Walmart the other day, and wanted to use them as a gift somehow. Originally, I thought this would be great gift to give to teachers (which is why you’ll also see “Thanks a bunch for being a great teacher” on the printable as well), but didn’t want to limited to just teachers, so I made sure to add a “friend” tag as well. This tags could also easily be attached to a bunch of real flowers, or if you can’t find candy roses like in the picture above, there are some great tutorials on Pinterest for Hershey’s kisses rose buds that would be pair perfectly with this tag.

I’ve recently been in love with some watercolor art lately, and thought I’d try my hand at it with this print. I’ve made them in two different sizes, 8×10 and 5×7. Its the perfect way to show some love this Valentine’s Day. Pick out a fun frame to stick this print in or spray paint an old frame into a gold one for some elegance.

My husband and I just bought our first house and we’ve been living in it for 2 months now. We absolutely love the place, especially since we didn’t even see the house in person – that was super lucky! I do not recommend it! The house is a little outdated, in some areas but it’s something we can live with. One of those places is the fireplace. I will say this, one of the best features about our fireplace is that it’s gas burning and we love having moving nights snuggled in front of it. The eyesore of the fireplace, for me at least, is everything surrounding it… there isn’t much of a “fancy mantel” and hopefully one day we’ll be able to change that.
But for now, I get to come up with different ways of decorating it with this Donut Banner. It’s a fun and playful way of displaying X’s and O’s throughout your house. Warning: it might make you hungry for donuts. 🙂
