Ohh TWOdles!!

Harper is turning the big T.W.O next Saturday and one of her friends is going to be out of town so we decided to have her party a week early! I decided awhile ago I was gonna do a Minnie theme because she loves her some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! (Daisy seems to be her fave but still went with Minnie which I’ll get to why in a minute here) When you think Minnie red, hearts and polka dots come to mind right? So, I figured perfect, I’ll hit up the after Valentines day sales and get a ton of new heart decor! I ended up mixing pink in too since we still had some stuff left over from her birthday last year. I LOVE the way everything turned out, exactly how I had pictured it in my head, she loved it even more which made it that much better 😉 After all this day was all about her. ❤

This second group of pics just cracks me up…SO shows her silly little personality ❤ I basically made everything and got ideas everywhere from my brain to Pinterest! This was all SO easy and all done here and there when I had spare time. I cut out way too many circles for my own good in the end haha! This cute shirt a friend of mine got for her in Disneyland, which I just cut a 2 out of felt and sewed by hand on, so it was easy enough to take the stitching out for continued wear! She had this tutu already as well that I stitched felt hearts on to be removed later too! I made this adorable sparkle Mickey clip out of felt and glitter that I glued to a little clip. I’ve been making her hair accessories forever since they are insane expensive on Etsy or anywhere else really for that matter!

For the cake I got 2 boxes of Funfetti bc its my fave and dyed one batch pink so every other layer would be pink 🙂 Turns out I only used 3 of the 4 8 by 8 rounds because all 4 were too high for my cake stand with the lid on with the toppers I got, found here. These toppers were a HIT, she screamed when she saw the cake and she has insisted on sleeping with little plastic Minnie and Daisy since LOL.  I bought Funfetti hot pink frosting rather than dying white as well as white and used the pink on the bottom layer, mixed the pink and white for the middle and used white on top for an ombre look. (I did the same last year and loved it so much I decided to just do it again.) It tasted amazing too which really is all that counts right? 😉

I made the banner with card stock and construction paper as well as the Minnie I taped on the heart centerpiece and the ones I taped on the juice boxes. The hearts on the table and heart toothpicks were clearance steals as well as the heart garland and gift bags. I glued rhinestones on the silverware to make them look glam and the “holder” they’re in is a sparky koozie! I made bows using strawberries and blueberries stuck with toothpicks (which I forgot to bring out of the fridge for the party after I took these pics) DANG IT! Harp enjoyed them later anyway haha!

Hot dogs are every kids favorite right? And SO easy to just throw in the crockpot with water to cook themselves so they are ready for go time! I made this cute little sign for the crockpot..because I’m crazy and had to have the Clubhouse touch on everything haha! Served with string cheese and goldfish for the perfect lunch!

I printed off coloring sheets online so the kids could color after they played for awhile and had lunch, Harper colored on each of her guests sheets as well as her own which did not impress them, but hey what can ya do with an almost two year old trying to share the love..ha!

It was so funny she got really shy when “Happy Birthday” started (totally cute) but then the rest of the day sang it to herself. 🙂 She blew out the candles like a little champ and hopefully made an awesome wish. 🙂 We opened presents before her friends left and she had a BLAST! We have been getting packages in the mail this past week from friends and family back home and I’m sure she has no idea why she’s getting all of these fun presents but she is loving it no doubt!

Balloons really are a hit for a two year old and this morning she came downstairs and the first thing she did was yell BLOONS!!!!  Her and daddy had fun playing with them before her guests arrived!

It was the perfect day and I can’t wait to for another fun party next year! I’ll leave you with a mama and mini selfie because thats how we do and my awesome ‘Jamicure’ that went along with the theme. ❤

“Hearts” and Crafts

With Valentines Day right around the corner, I figured we needed to fill our house with even more hearts. A GREAT excuse to whip up a craft..or two. 🙂 This first one I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but decided whatever, if it was a complete disaster and didn’t work at least Harper would enjoy the painting any who.

First step, put tape in a heart design on construction paper.

Then put your tot in a paint shirt and let her/him go wild 😉

Yes it was all over the table too, and her but hey thats what washable paint is for right? While that was drying I added some purple food coloring and let her paint a couple other masterpieces.

Then we proceeded to do foot and handprints on paper, then cut a heart around them 🙂 TOO CUTE! She thought painting her feet was the most hilarious thing ever…

When the paint is dry, peel off the tape to expose the cutest piece of “heart” work EVER!!! 🙂 With the other paintings I cut random hearts out and hung on the window!

Hope you have some fun these next couple days with your littles and have the best Valentines Day yet!

Sickness and DoTerra

Hi Friends! I am very sorry we have been missing for a few weeks. Hudson and I have been running through every sickness the last few weeks. Stomach flu, the regular flu which turned into a lovely sinus infection for me. We have been hanging out at home watching movies cuddled up on the couch. We are finally healthy!!!! Just in time for Husby to come home! Yay!

We quickly began construction our our basement. I have to thank my husband and step-dad for working there butts off on their days off to get the project rolling. They are amazing! I am so happy to be moving forward with finishing our basement. It will be lovely to have some extra space for Hudson to play without destroying our main living area! ( I like to think it will help at least.)

Now onto disinfecting my entire house with Essential Oils from Doterra, On Guard blend to be exact. If you haven’t tried them I highly recommend you check them out! I think our sicknesses would have lasted much longer without them. I am a HUGE fan of the Breathe and DigestZen blend. Breathe is for respiratory issues, rub a little bit on your chest and you can breathe again…. DigestZen is most effective for me, when I drink it, add a couple drops to a tiny glass of water INSTANT relief.

Happy Tuesday Friend!
