Dressing Our Guests :: 10 Year Anniversary Party

As if you'd even think for a second that I wouldn't sew for other people for our 10 Year Anniversary party!  I had so much fun putting together all of these coordinating outfits! I had always planned on making something for my sister to wear. And then wanted to make a...

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

Pin Tucks + Suspenders :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

What was almost as exciting as my dress to make for our anniversary party were the boys' outfits!  I actually find sewing button-downs super satisfying because there is a level of perfectionism that is required and when you absolutely nail that collar or placket, you...

My Happy Floral Dress :: 10 Year Anniversary Attire

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to start making my dress for our party.  If you've known me for any amount of time, I usually wait until the very last minute to create outfits and costumes, because the inspiration hasn't quite hit me yet.  I think I...

#BennettsThirsty30

Let's just start out by saying that I had a major wife fail and didn't take hardly any pictures on Friday, during Bennett's birthday party.  In fairness, it was jam packed full of people that I wanted to chat with...rather than take photos and be antisocial.  Plus,...

This past Saturday was Louis' birthday party celebration...and man, was it fun.  Our porch and yard were filled to the brim with party people...parents and children combined.  Bennett and I would like to thank everyone that came over to make Lou's birthday extra...

Hot Diggity Dog! :: Delilah Turns Two

Apparently it's not just my child that continues to grow and change despite the wishes and efforts of their parents and loved ones.  Because Delilah just celebrated her 2nd birthday on Saturday (her actual birthday was yesterday).Two.  TWO.  It feels...

‘Rawr’ Means Happy Birthday in Dinosaur

Saturday was Louis’ 3rd birthday party – and it was pretty fantastic, if I may say so myself.  I think Louis and Bennett would probably agree as well.  The weather was great, company was amazing, food was delicious and everything went off without a...
