I'm in love...

With this idea! I can't help looking at it and getting anxious, I REALLY want to do this in my bedroom. I started last week re-purposing a few items in my bedroom to fit the theme, but then decided I didn't want any one color, that I want a whole bunch, and I just want this beautiful tree to live in my room. I think it would be VERY time consuming, but do able. I've read that it's crepe paper twisted and pulled? Does that make sense? If anyone would have a better idea then let me know.

I just found this blog, Ruthi Auda. It's completely stunning and I love her blog almost as much as I love her tree! She is a designer for Anthropologie, how cool would that job be? I'm jealous!

Doesn't that make your heart skip a beat?

And they say you can't play with your food...

Today while at the Dr.'s office, I was fumbling through one of the child magazines and came across this idea, I thought it was so cool and knew the kids would love it too. I can't remember what magazine it was to give the proper credit.
It's so simple too. I love it! I want to start a series for fun, easy, kids meals that they can prepare. All I had to do was boil the water and cut the hotdog!
 "Squid Dogs"
Just cut up a few hotdogs
Let the kids spear them with thin spaghetti noodles
Drop them in boiling water, and cook until noodles are tender!

It was pretty good!

A special baby shower

2 weeks ago my Girlfriend and I (with the help of my mother-in-law) threw an amazing baby shower for our other life long friend. I wrote about her story here. She has been through so much and deserved to have an amazing shower. We decided to go with a theme I saw on the Aesthetic Nest. It was so beautifully done and at first I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to execute it as well as them. But I think it turned out wonderful, we did different colors and I changed up a few things, but it was they're idea that brought it all to life. A HUGE thank you to them!! You can go here to get their free printables and see how amazing theirs was!When Mom-to-be saw everything she immediately starting crying, so I would say it was a huge success.

The whole set-up

She's a vegetarian so we made some Prego/Vegan Friendly sushi. It was really Yummy! Everything on the menu was Vegan, and she LOVED it all!

Thanks for reading! I will be back soon with P#3's pre-Birthday party planning. I'm excited to share!
