SWIM SHOOT WITH NETTLES TALE



A month or two back, I had the opportunity to be in a swimsuit shoot with an amazing local company Nettles Tale. Never ever would I have imagined being in a swim shoot, but it was such a fun and amazing time.

SOOKE AND VICTORIA ADVENTURES


This Spring break I took a trip to Vancouver Island with my children and my parents. Sadly, Josh wasn't able to join us as it's his busy season at work. Although we missed him alot, it was so nice to get away and spend some time outside.

EASTER EGGS AT THE FARM...



Each year we've done a small Easter egg hunt at our home or in our backyard. But this year we decided to try going out to do a bigger Easter egg hunt. We decided to go to a local apple farm and the kids loved it so much!

DIY FAIRY 'SPRINKLE' DUST

When Maddie and I decided on the theme for her 5th birthday party, I loved the idea of a Woodland Fairy Tea Party. We took some themes and elements she really truly loves at her age right now and incorporated it into a sweet party theme.







As I got to thinking more about what we were going to do with the kids and how to decorate the party, an idea came to me as we were shopping for the party. I found these adorable mini glass bottles at the dollar store that I was thinking would be perfect to put some glitter in as fairy dust. (So cute, right?) But as I thought about it more, I decided that an even sweeter idea would be to add some sprinkles into the glass bottles as fairy sprinkle dust. And it gives the girls the chance to actually use it in something edible!

MATERIALS

Small Clear bottles (with cork stopper)
Sprinkles



I made my own mix of sprinkles from a bulk store! It included plain pink sprinkles, plain white sprinkles and mini star shaped sprinkles. I mixed them all together and voila!

DIY FAIRY WANDS

Handmade touches to birthday parties always makes me so happy! I love creating little things that I know my kids will enjoy and love. Especially when it's so easy!

I was brainstorming like crazy once we decided on a fairy tea party theme, and I really wanted to make some pretty wands for the girls to play with.

Originally I wanted to find some wooden toppers (like a star wand) but after visiting many many many dollar and craft stores, I wasn't able to find what I was imagining. So I thought some more and decided that some simple wands with ribbons would have to do.

MATERIALS

Long Wood sticks
Glue gun
Ribbon (a variety of colors and widths)
Scissors

DIY VALENTINES STRAWS & CUPCAKE TOPPERS

I was so excited for our Valentines Puppy Paw-ty I planned with one of my sweet girlfriend Jessica of This Sweet Happy Life! We both love celebrating with a party and loved working together for a little party for our daughters and a couple other friends.
















I've got a super easy DIY for paper straws and cupcake toppers that will be sure to dress up any party occasion. I love that these are really so super easy and can really add an extra pop to a party or special occasion.


VALENTINES PUPPY PAW-TY!


Valentines Day is one of my favorite little holidays! Pink and red all over couldn't make me any happier. And with little ones, it's been even more fun celebrating this love-filled holiday.

POTTY TRAINING!



The last bit of Ellie's babyhood is coming to an end as we transition into being diaper free. We've been meaning to do this for a few months, but life got busy and we put it on hold. But once the holidays came and went, we decided that it was the perfect time to attempt it!
