Fourth of July with a Bang!

Fourth of July is the ultimate summer celebration! And it a great time to celebrate our nations's Independence day with family and friends. I have several family members coming ouver for a swim party and BBQ- and I couldn't wait to put up my July fourth decor! 

Here's the scoop where I got everything: All the banners came from Target. The lantern and throw pillow are from Home Goods. The colorful fans are from Party City. The star decor I purchased from the Dollar Store! Can you believe it? The July fourth printable I printed out from Pinterest and then put in a white frame I already had. 

I hope y'all have fantastic Fourth!

Baseball Party!

Scored a Home Run with this Baseball Party!

One of my favorite parties I've thrown! My son Cayden wanted a baseball birthday party- and I was thrilled to start planing it! 
I bought almost all the snacks at the Dollar Store, and the decor hanging from the ceiling at Party city. Once again, thanks to my husband, Justin, his mad illustrator/photoshop skills- he did an outstanding job designing the custom printables and scoreboard sign.

The eleven children had a swinging good time playing Base Ball Bingo, hitting the Baseball piñata, playing, "pin the ball in the mitt," among other fun games. It was an afternoon enjoyed by all. 

A Texas Style Teen Bedroom!

My daughter is a true Texas teen- she loves cowboy boots, country music, saying y'all, and rustic decor! So it was only natural that she wanted her bedroom to have a some southern flair!

The biggest challenge was keeping to a strict budget! I only had a few hundred dollars to transfer this gal's room! So, believe it or not we took a stab at Goodwill for a dresser- and we found the perfect black one complete with mirror - and for only $75.00! It needed a little TLC -so we touched it up with some paint. Then we went to Hobby Lobby for all the rustic decor. They had everything we needed - the wall signs, the letter K, the tray and boxes. We also got the puffs from there and used fishing line to hang them from he ceiling. The black Parson chair and gray throw I already had, and we bought the ya'll pillow at Hobby Lobby as well. 

I wanted bedding to fit the style of the room, yet easy on the budget. We found all the pieces at At Home. In my opinion it's not worth spending at ton of money on a teenagers bedding-espically a girl. Because what I have found over time is the bedding easily gets stained with make up, writing utensils or food. I did add layers of types of bedding (comforter, and two quilts) to make the bed look fuller. 

My daughter's favorite part of the room is the silk sunflowers we got at Michaels. She says she wants sunflowers at her wedding someday. 

 She loves the room and I love it too! And the best part we stayed in budget!
