Vintage Christmas Party

Oh how fun this Vintage Christmas party would have been. Yes... I said, "Would have been." :( One of my kiddos came down with a fever a couple of days before our annual Santa Night Party this year. Unfortunately, his little body can't handle fevers like some others can. He's one of the not-so-lucky ones that suffer from febrile seizures. The morning before our party date, he once again had a seizure, and once the craziness calmed down... I immediately sent out notifications to our friends, letting them know that we had to cancel the party for this year, so we...

Christmas Chalkboard Art

Having a chalkboard in your home is FABULOUS way to incorporate each holiday and season that comes around. From the minute we moved in to our house, I knew I wanted a large chalkboard in our foyer.

Silent Night… Movie Night…

This post was sponsored by Redbox as part of a program with Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. If you're like me, you're all about last minute, simple gifts. I'm the worst procrastinator about some things, and that includes gift-buying. I LOVE giving gifts. Like, my heart goes CRAZY pitter-pat, when I give someone something. I love seeing their face light up, of surprise, or thankfulness. But there's just some reason that I REALLY drag out buying a gift. So, I usually find myself scrambling at the last minute to come up with something. To ease the stress...

Especially a party that I have to experiment with signature drink recipes... My Favorite Things party, will be a "plaid," theme... laying a little heavy on the red. So I knew I wanted at least ONE red drink on my table, so a Red Apple Martini soon became the "one." When I'm hosting, I ALWAYS want to create a wow...

You know that urge you get to buy yourself something, when you're shopping for others? No? {Facepalm} Maybe it's just me then? I can't help it though!
