Cute and Easy DIY Cake Smash Photo Shoot Ideas

I love cake smash photos! I think it is so stinkin adorable to see the delight on the kiddos’ faces when they taste that icing for the first time or the disgust when they can’t understand why they are being asked to touch that sticky, sugary stuff.

There was definitely no disgust this past weekend, when I did a cake smash photo shoot with our baby girl. I never did one with the boys and now I am kicking myself! The photos turned out so well!

I have to say that the success of the photos was partly due to the super cute bubble-inspired cake idea that I got from the gorgeous Ashlyn over at Loves The Find.

Ashlyn is pretty much a new kindred spirit. She loves coffee, finding vintage deals, DIY projects, and anything budget-friendly! Sound familiar? If she didn’t live so far away, I’m pretty sure a girl date at a local coffee shop would be in order.

She is here on the blog today, to share some super cute and awesome DIY ideas and tips for an amazing birthday cake smash photo shoot! Continue reading

I can’t let our love letters become a distant memory.

long distance love letters

One of the harsh realities of military life is the ongoing long distance that it brings. Deployments are just a part of the norm. We military wives know to expect to spend several months away from the men we love every other year, and even sometimes every year. We inadvertently kind of become experts at writing long distance love letters.

My husband and I are in that cruel reality yet again, and I’m longing for the day that we’re back together. So, I decided to create this love letter for him. Continue reading

Base House Makeover: Guest Bathroom

Are you ready for the guest bathroom reveal?

If you’ve been with me for the past few months, then you know I’ve been slowly sharing with you the changes we have made to our base house. Thankfully, our housing office is pretty lenient on what you can do, as long as the house is put back the way it was when you moved in. So, that has opened up a lot of options for us, allowing us to really make our base house a home. I can’t wait for you to see our guest bathroom!

Call me weird, but bathrooms are on the list of my favorite spaces to decorate. I don’t know why. I think it’s because the options are almost limitless, and bathroom transformations can be almost drastic by simply changing a few things.

Since you all know that I LOVE the rustic look, I completely went for the rustic cottage style in our guest bathroom, and I’m really happy with how it turned out! Continue reading

I might be certifiably insane or just plain stupid. Hmm, maybe a bit of both. I know my friends all thought so this past June. I decided to take the kids on a cross-country road trip for the whole month of June. By myself! Yep, my last marble must have rolled away when I came up with that idea. Continue reading
