Cruising with a 2 Year Old

Cruising with a 2 year old

  Oh boy. We've been back from vacation for over a month, and I've had the post written, but haven't had the time to sort through the 500-million+ photos we took. I've finally finished and am happy to share with you today!  All I can say is when cruising with a 2 year old... Expect the unexpected. Two year olds can be very unpredictable and let's face it--if you breath wrong they meltdown. I both love and hate this age. Hate the meltdowns but love watching their little minds work, figure … [Read more...]

How To Make Personalized Sand Buckets

How To Make Personalized Name Sand Bucket

I'm slow going (per normal) with sharing Ryder's Birthday party stuff. I didn't do as much as I did for his first birthday; however, I did make the cutest customized sand buckets as favors for his friends. I loved how these turned out. I'm going to preface we had over 40 children as his playground party this year. So I worked on these over the span of 2 weeks. But if you have less children these won't take as long to make. I order a case of 48 buckets from the Dollar Tree; however, during the … [Read more...]

2nd Birthday Construction T-Shirt

Over the next two week’s I’ll be sharing some cute things that I DIY’ed for Ryder’s 2nd Birthday party. Last week, I shared the amazing invitations and thank you notes we got printed from Minted. Today, I’m sharing a cute shirt that I made for Ryder to wear to his birthday party. We took the chance of having his birthday party outside at a playground. This is a big chance since the weather is so unpredictable in March/April in Florida. And boy did the weather suck the day of his party. … [Read more...]

Construction Birthday Invitations

Party Zone Construction Invitations from @minted

Thank you Minted for sponsoring todays post. As always, all opinions are my own. March always seems to be a very busy month for us. Jon's birthday is practically at the beginning of the month, some years Easter, followed by Ryder's Birthday. It's a little crazy busy for us. Last month, I reached out to my friends at Minted.com to help me with Ryder's 2nd Birthday invitations. I used them for his 1st Birthday invitations plus it's who we use to print our Christmas cards every year. I can't … [Read more...]

DIY Trendy T-Shirt Call Me On My Cell Phone

I'm sharing another DIY Trendy T-shirt today. I'm not gonna lie when I saw this old-school style rotary phone I immediately started hearing the "hot line bling" song in my head and that's where the whole "call me on my cell phone" came to play. I showed Jon, and he started laughing. I'm all about the witty toddler shirts lately. … [Read more...]

DIY Like A Boss Trendy Baby Flocked Onesie

I'm so excited to share the cutest little onesie I dreamed up. If your a parent you already know that your child becomes the boss from the minute they are born. Let's just face it now. My friends at Cricut have a new cartridge being released in the next few weeks called "Trendy T-shirts" and they gave me a first glance look at it and asked me to design a few shirts. They also have quite a few new fonts out too!  This was the first design I came up with and I absolutely love it. I didn't have … [Read more...]

Happy 2nd Birthday, Ryder!

Birthday Photo - terrible 2's toddler feeding

How is it possible that my precious little baby boy is two years old today? The past two years has gone by in a blink and although I’ve yet to finish his first year digital scrapbook and haven’t even started his second book I have thousands and thousand of photographs of him. I probably have at least one photo every single day he’s been alive. That’s one thing I love about modern-day technology. And the videos… they are endless. I try to get every cute little thing on video and the … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Day 2016

toddler valentine photo

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Last year, I shared a couple really cute photos and I had to share photo’s that Ryder took this year to commemorate his second Valentine’s Day. He is such a ham and oh-so photogenic if you can’t tell. People tell me I should get him into modeling. Not sure if I’m cut out to be a mom of a toddler model! Or any model for that matter. We took a nice long bike ride over to the neighborhood across our street. We check out a new restaurant … [Read more...]
