{ Moms & Muffins ~ Activity Days }

Here are a few pictures from our Moms & Muffins Brunch we did for Activity Day's. 
Everyone seemed to have a great time, and it all ran pretty smooth. We had about 15 show up. We were missing a few girls and their moms. Maybe next year.
I have to thank all my friends who helped set up and also stayed after it was over to clean up. 
You guys are awesome!!  
And a huge thanks to Nanette for letting me "shop" at her house. Love ya gal!
I didn't take all the pictures that I wanted, aka more of the decor 
(I was busy) but here are the few that I did get. 
We had the following:
Muffins; Banana nut, Lemon Poppy seed, Blueberry & 
Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel.
Fruit kabobs with grapes, pineapple,strawberries, honeydew melon
Fruit dip
Chocolate eclairs
Cream puffs
Citrus water
This was probably our biggest activity that we have ever done. 
All our other activities that we have planned weren't nearly as "decorated".
But it sure was nice to have something pretty for all us
moms &amp our daughters.
Each of the girls gave their moms felt flowers that we made a few weeks back and a hand written note telling their mom's how much they appreciate them. 
All in all it was a great little activity.

Hope you all have a Fabulous Weekend!!

This activity was inspired from HERE
I loved all her decor (especially her banners) and this ideas was simply GENIUS!!
My thanks to The Fickle Pickle!

{ TGIF }

Long blogging nightmare of a story coming soon,
But until then....

All I can say is Thank goodness it's Friday!
Which means, it's one day closer to the weekend. 
Which means, that the Mother's Day Brunch I am working on for Activity Day's is almost done.

I have some Muffins to make and an entire primary room to set up, but thanks to my friends and their many hands, it will get done this afternoon. 
All I can say is, I'm so glad I get to work with 3 other friends with this calling. :)

{ Freak Out! }

Please bear with me as I try and figure out what is going on with my blog pictures. 

A lot of my photos have an exclamation point where the picture is supposed to be. 
Just like this bugger......
I'm a little bit sick about it....

Is anyone else seeing this on their blog?
Or am I the lucky one?

{ Birthday Recap x2 }

Recap 1- So, I survived my birthday 10 days ago. 
Here's how my day unfolded:
Our well pump and pipes all got replaced.
My VT's brought flowers and a huge hunk o' chocolate cake. 
I received phone calls from friends and some family.
Loads of Facebook happy birthday's.
My sweet friend made & delivered dinner and dessert for our fam.
I spent my evening at Bubbles Laundromat washing/folding 4 loads of much needed clothing.
I have to say the weekend/week of my b-day started off not so great, but a HUGE thanks to my friends and family for making it a bit better. 
I REALLY appreciate it.

Recap 2 - I realized a while back that I completely forgot to post pics of Brinley's 10th B-day way back in January. 
So, here you go, I can't believe I forgot about it! 
I. Am. Slacker. Mom. 
My mother of the year award is in the mail
 I just know it. :)


This birthday party was completely inspired, with some shameless copying from a fellow blog friend Hilary. 
Brinley loved EVERYTHING about her party and asked if I could recreate it.
So THANK YOU Hilary, you are fabulous! 
Click here to see her amazing party! 
Her stuff is always so cute and so is her little family!
The Invitations

Girly Owl Cupcakes
Happy 10th Birthday Brinley Boo!
Sour Cream containers filled with candy, made my your's truly.
Goodie bags for the party goers.

EDITED: I used THIS tutorial for making the sour cream containers.

We also hung paper lanterns and tissue pom poms from the ceiling. 
I had to make my own streamers this year as this town I live in has NOTHING. So I bought a few plastic table covers and cut them into strips then, sewed them together with a gathering stitch. 
Turned out cute!
