Turner's DINO-MITE 2nd Birthday Party
Turner's DINO-MITE 2nd Birthday Party

Immediately after New Year’s Day my mind went into Turner birthday mode. I was rapidly trying to shop for gifts and come up with party ideas. Luckily I had already come up with a new design for his big boy room remodel in the basement, and that gave me a head start.  The inspiration was dinosaur themed with modern black, white, and lime throughout.

I searched for some simple ideas on Pinterest, and then I started buying/DIY-ing. I made the banners, cake topper letters, a tiny party hat for a dinosaur, the dino skull poster (which I plan on framing to hang in Turner’s new room), spray painted some dinos, designed and printed the table signs, baked the cookies and the cake.

I borrowed serve ware from my mom and sister-in-law, which held all of the delicious party snacks and drink. I snapped some quick photos of the table before too many guests arrived, but I forgot to take more after my mother-in-law arrived with the yogurt dipped pretzels (aka: dino bones to go on top of the muddy buddy dirt) so just pretend they’re there, okay? ;)

Turner was so thrilled with all of the friends and family that had come to see him. It was adorable! He could barely contain all of his excitement! He loved opening presents and blowing out the candles on his cake. The most rewarding thing to see after putting it all together was the joy in that little boy’s face. I was so glad I was in the moment to enjoy it with him. I only wish he would have held still long enough for me to capture just a few more photos of his little face.

I can’t believe I gave birth to this now little person. I love him more every day and I wouldn’t change a thing about him! He’s going to be the best big brother ever. Grey is going to love this goofy little dude. 

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos from our celebration! Would you guys be interested in any printables I created? Let me know!

HOLIDAY HAIR SERIES: Messy Top Knot
Holiday Hair Series || Messy Top Knot || Episode 2 || Video Tutorial

Hey, guys! It's that time again. The time to share the second episode in my Holiday Hair Series! I wanted to share a more casual look with you today. Because, let's be real, most of the time before the holidays I feel like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get things done before it's too late. This look is perfect for all of those errands and endless amounts of gift wrapping! I wear it ALL THE TIME. Plus, it goes great with the closet full of chunky scarves I own. Haha! I've always struggled to get the perfect messy look until I figured out this style. It's the perfect amount of messy and I can do it in minutes!! I hope you enjoy and stay tuned for the next two videos in my series! I'm saving the best for last! ;)
