There is a ton of buzz going around F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Great Gatsby" movie. And it seems as if the roaring 20's themes are popping up and around through the party circuit. I thought I'd share our version of 20's looks from Big D's preschool fundraising benefit. My dress was borrowed from the archives at work, but it was so much fun wearing the fringe and tassels. And how sleek does the Hub's look in his bow tie? (PS. that bow was a labor of love!). Speaking of the movie, I am itching to see it and am gaga over Leonard DiCaprio...
Hamburgers, bikinis, sunglasses, and a six pack of cold beer...these are all essential for the Memorial Day Weekend. But what is most important of all is a rad playlist that you can bob your head to, and even sing obnoxiously loud. I have compiled a playlist of my favorite songs that are on queue when bbq'ing and sittin' poolside. There's an eclectic mix below to cater to all genres - some pop music, old skool and new skool rap, oldies but goodies, and a dash of country.
With the hundreds of party themes out there, it was difficult for me to narrow down my options for Lil Tyty's upcoming 2nd birthday. I came across this theme, and found it fitting for me him.
a) kid is still a baby, so before he starts having a say as to his theme, I'll take advantage and dictate the party
b) "You are my Sunshine" is a lullaby that is vey sentimental - I sang it to both my kids when they were babies, and to this day, I get a little teary eyed hearing it.
c) On top of these mushy sentiments, sunshine and yellow are fitting for a hot and summery birthday party.
Now that I have nailed the theme, get ready for some DIY craft posts on favors and decor soon.
Boys - I was surrounded by lots of them all through out the weekend. Tall, dark, young and crazy, the range of them and their antics left me exhausted, not to mention I was 2 against 1 when the Hubs left for out of town at the last minute...so I am going to make this post quick and snappy. Nighty night!
Hello Weekend! This work week was a tough one. One that wore me down to the bone. I am grateful for some time away from the office to de-stress. How do I de-stress? Unleash my type A tendencies. I am itching to get the house organized and prepping my walls for some wallpapering. I can't wait to show you the final result. Have a happy weekend!
By now, you probably gathered that pink is one of my all time favorite colors. If the Hubs allowed it, I would tickle the whole house in blush tone shades and soft petal accents. But for now, I am limited to my little office space that screams girly everywhere.
