Do you celebrate Galentine's day with your BFFs? Going out with your significant other for the holiday is always fun, but an evening spent giggling and crafting with your gal pals simply cannot be beat! Host an afternoon or evening in with your girls, complete with sweets and sips and your heart will definitely be full of love and laughter.

I've always thought a winter wedding with white fluffy snow all around would be simply magical! Guests could come all bundled up in beautiful laid-back layers of plaid and tulle and celebrate the happy couple's nuptials in a cozy barn complete with lots of twinkling lights and candles. 

Well, we don't get much snow here in Texas, but that doesn't mean you can't have a cozy down-home winter affair outdoors in a beautiful farm setting!

I'm a firm believer that if it was socially acceptable for me to do so I would romp around in a onesie on the daily. But seeing as though no one would be thrilled to see that (and sorry for the visual!) I decided to to work up a cute lollipop bouquet with the little onesies instead!

With the help of Dawn from Revel and Glitter, a few of my blogging gal pals all got together to throw our sweet friend Laura of Make Life Lovely a baby shower. So with a beautiful color palette in mind, we all set out to shower her with a little virtual love! 

Ok, so you might be wondering what in the heck is a lollipop onesie bouquet?! It's a fun little spin on...

To know me is to know I love puns, and what better time to stick with them than the holidays?! This Cactus Inspired Valentine's Party would be a perfect theme to celebrate with your fave gal pals Galentine's style, and could easily transition into a Cinco de Mayo fiesta as well!

I started by creating a major focal point in the room with the balloon cactus backdrop. Although it wasn't difficult to create, the challenge was finding the best medium to use i...

I'm always looking for fun and quirky Valentine gifts that are a step up from the out of the box cards you can find at your local store. I blame it on my control freak crafty nature, and the need to add puns into any and every aspect of my life. This year is probably the last my son will be handing out Valentine's to his classmates, so I knew they had to be turtley awesome!

As a little girl I always pictured New Year's Eve as a night to get all dolled up to head out on the town, staying up late until that big ol' ball dropped, then getting a midnight kiss to seal in the magic of a new year ahead. Now of course, I'm lucky if I'm not already in pj's before 11pm CST to see the ball drop in New York! Funny how being an adult does that! Anyhoo...the former is exactly what I was going for when I styled this girly flamingle. A fun night spent with gal pals complete with a toast to friendship at the end of the night. So grab a glass of bubbly (or our mocktail version at the bottom of this post, al...

With all the hustle and bustle the holiday season brings, I like to try and take a few moments to pamper myself. And while getting to an actual spa isn't always on the agenda, a nice warm shower with a DIY Peppermint Vanilla Sugar Scrub is the next best thing!

Peppermint is my go-to scent at Christmas. I find it to be invigorating, especially on those chilly mornings when I'd rather stay snuggled up under the covers where it's warm and toasty than ven...

Although I'm typically a color-loving gal, I couldn't be more smitten with this Modern Black and White Farmhouse Christmas party we styled for the Oriental Trading's Fun365 site. The simplicity of the black, white and gold color palette was so soothing and a welcome change to the otherwise busy and "extra" the holidays can sometimes bring. What I think I like best part about this party is that it isn't overly Christmasy, and can easily be transformed into a New Year's Eve party by swapping out a few simple things! I'm all about the double-duty, especially over the holidays when I typically feel like I'm being tugged this way and that!

Olé olé let's par-tayyy!! I'm so excited to share our "Fiesta Forever" themed Girl's Night Out with you! It's our last GNO until the fall, so it's a little bitter sweet, but don't fret because we'll be having lots of summer funnin' with our weekly summer camps over the next couple months! Since pastels are so on trend lately, I wanted to create a super girly pastel fiesta to say hola to summer. Our rose gold sequin tablecloth and balloons from Northstar Balloons were begging to be paired with a lighter color palette, and I couldn't be happier with the end result!
