Bundle of Joy Baby Shower for Sisterlove

What is more fun than planning a baby shower for your sister/best friend….nothing! Our best friend, Lesley (since we were 2 & 4 years old) collaborated with me on the entire shower and helped with all the planning & details. We are so lucky to have her be apart of all our big days and life adventures. For baby showers our taste is more subtle, aka not overly baby themed. Les came up with the theme… Bundle of Joy, which was perfect for a January winter shower. We were going for a cozy, winter, intimate feel with baby blue, navy, maroon colors and plaid & wood accents. Obviously, we needed a hot coco bar, Katelyn loves her hot coco and what is more cozy then wrapping up in a blanket and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate!? Also fit the theme perfectly. Les, mastered the hot coco bar… with a ton of candy toppings, cute signs & to top it off handmade cookies that looked exactly like hot coco cups with tiny marshmallows! A doughnut wall was another must since who doesn’t want a fresh doughnut at a shower brunch! And to set them up a doughnut wall was a must. I thought about making the wall, but my husband convinced me by the time I would actually get it made correctly it would cost me more than just buying it (haha…thanks for the confidence babe), but he was right. At the end of the day I didn’t have any […]

White Christmas

Ok y’all we have been obsessed with white booties these days and are pretty much in love with the pair I got at Nordstrom. It is a unique height and the softest leather, not gonna lie thou I had trouble getting them on and off at first. But I used a plastic bag to slide my feet in the first few times and then the leather stretched a bit and now they are perfect. I wear them as often as I can. I really feel they have these boots are made for walking vibe. White booties are really all the rage this winter and here are a few we are loving from at Nordstrom so you all can take part in the trend and a sneak peek of my Christmas card! AND my Boots are 40% OFF… great deal shop them below (not a ton of sizes left but the other colors are gorg too)! A sneak of the Christmas card pics that the lovely Alena of @modaprints kindly did for us and what these booties look like on!     More options, click on pics for details   Happy White Christmas bootie shopping!   xx, Meg and Kay

Animal Themed 1st B-day

  Our little BEAR turned one a few weeks ago, and since she is our little bear and LOVES all & every animal, it only made sense to throw a party animal Birthday for her! We decided to have a very small family gathering since she is only 1, and let’s be serious she won’t remember it. I also tried to keep that in mind with the decorations as to not go too crazy..she is only 1 Megan!  When coming up with  budget friendly ideas, I realized I had storage bins filled with the perfect decorations….TY beanie babies! Kay and I were avid collectors and of course thought they would be worth a fortune one day….not so much but at least they did come in handy again & bonus Caroline is obsessed with them, so I can slowly give them all to her :)! Whenever I have a get together or party at my house, I always try to think of a few things I have that I can plan around or if I buy decorations I save them. It actually really comes in handy and I have saved a lot of money doing it! The cardboard coasters in the pictures below have been used at least at 5 parties at my house :). For her other decorations, I hunted around on Pinterest and found someone actually makes little party hats for animal figurines…how perfect. I decided those were needed for her cake and the cupcakes I made for the […]
